Virtual Urban Legends

Even in a virtual world, there are Urban Legends. Some are true, some are not. For instance, did you know that when you see an actual Linden inworld, you can ask them for a bear? You will receive a unique bear designed by THAT Linden. This legend used to be true. I don’t know if they still do it, because I simply don’t have any desire for another useless object to sit in my inventory and take up space. Other less believable legends are like the notorious biker gangs on the grid that will find you in real life and mess you up if you ever cross them. I don’t know if that’s true or not. I’ve not heard of anyone that has actually experienced their wrath in RL, but I’m certainly not going out of my way to find out, either. In other several MMOs there are what’s know as Easter Eggs. Where if you do complete certain tasks you’ll receive a certain prize. There’s often hidden loot, that is rather obscure and not well known. Back to Second Life, I’ve heard that there are porn stars and famous people on the grid, but in what world they are stars or famous, I’m just not quite sure. I’ve even heard of Blogging Burnout. I never imagined that this could ring true for me, as I have this insufferable need to blog all the time. However, I’m starting to believe in it as I feel my well of creativity running dry. Please don’t misunderstand. I still love blogging and I absolute love being a Blogger Manager. And to be completely fair, I don’t know that my well is running dry, but I really want to do something more creative…more me and words have failed me far more often that I’d like to admit. So, in the coming weeks, I might be experimenting with some new photography techniques. As for my writing? Well, I don’t know. I’m sure I’ll come up with something. Perhaps more songs, poems, short stories, or just the ramblings of my own mind.

For The Love of The Devil

By now you’ve surely heard about the event, For the Love of the Devil. If not, please allow me to enlighten you with the except from the Facebook Page. I have dedicated this post to the event and my gorgeous, loving, inspiring friend, Andrea “Devil” Damone. Please take a look as the event is only a week long and there are some amazing creators that have stepped up. This is the first of three posts I’m dedicating to the event, so have a look below and grab the slurl. ♥

This year, in May and June a friend of many in Secondlife, Andrea Damone (Devil Damone) went in for what should have been a very routine surgery. But things did not go to plan, and Andrea spent many weeks in an induced coma fighting for her life.

We are blessed that she has fought her way back and although her recovery continues, she is home and getting stronger by the week. Unfortunately the cost of keeping Andrea with us has fallen on her greatly. She has many expenses and bills resulting from this ordeal that she has to now face, while continuing to maintain her determination and fighting spirit through physical and emotional therapy.

Andrea had no idea of our plans, but many of her friends have wanted to do something to help. It’s hard in Secondlife to offer support, when often we are so far away from a friendly hug, or a knock on the door with offerings of support. We decided, what we can do is try to help her with the burden of these expenses the only way we can.

For the love of the Devil‘ which we found fitting as her Secondlife name is Devil

Frazzled

Wow, its been a crazy few days. I’ve been sick and crazy busy in both worlds. This seems to be the trend of my life now and while I love keeping busy, I’m sorta wanting a whole day to stay in bed and hide. I tried to do that Sunday morning, but alas, I had to get up and step out into the big bad real world. I forget how big and wonderful it can be sometimes. Most days I’d prefer to stay in my bedroom. I don’t like leaving the house, but my precious Zoey forces me outside several times a day. That’s more than enough world for me, but not for long. I’m making big changes in my life and its scary. Its also exciting, but mostly I’m terrified. I’ve finally gotten to the age where I’m not such a huge fan of change. I’m frazzled to say the least and I have about five to-do lists floating around my desk somewhere. *laughs* I’m sure there’s some cross over items…perhaps I’ll consolidate them if I can find them all at the same time. Don’t be too surprised if I do more musically inspired posts this week. *laughs*

NSFW-Ready for Fall

While technically it may indeed be Autumn, it certainly doesn’t feel like it in my part of the world. It’s still too hot and humid outside to function and breathe at the same time. I’m so ready for Fall its not funny. My cardigans and favorite sweaters are calling to me, just waiting for the minute I can toss them on over a tank top or tee, whenever I take the dog out. So, while yes, I’m showing you my tits again while showcasing the Maxine Dress from Narcisse, I thought I’d also fit a fall theme into the photo….hence the pumpkins and the gorgeous acorn & leafy jewelry set from Empyrean Forge, better known as the Homecoming Set. Though I can take no credit for the decor as I was being rather stealthy when taking this picture at Fall Trace. *giggles*

NSFW-Ropes

I have this tendency to fall back on songs whenever I do an erotic post, because I suppose it’s easier than stepping out from behind the veil of an avatar to be truly honest about why I take these types of photographs. Someone told me a few months ago that my pictures were getting better and they were glad to see that I had learned I could still get favs on flickr with my clothes on. I was a teensy bit offended by that statement. I don’t take these photos for favs. I take these photos because I enjoy them. I enjoy looking at them. I enjoy creating them. It’s the same reason I take fashion photos and home decor photos. It’s why I refuse to force myself into some blogging niche as others have recommended to me so many times.
Don’t get me wrong, I love that so many creators have entrusted me with their creations and allowed me to blog for them, but I blog for me. That’s why I’ve chosen the brands that I apply to so carefully. I need some artistic license. I’m also aware of my responsibilities to the creators. I have one store that does not want nudity featured in the blogs we do for that brand. I respect that and I don’t do nudes when blogging those creations.
So, there you have it. I’m a big ole perv that enjoys sensual, erotic photography. Luckily for me, I get to blog the Bound Box…so let the perving commence! This is just the first of several pretties I’m about to show you from the box….so get your tissues and lotion ready or whatever you need…*laughs*

Scelerophobia

They say you learn something new everyday and for the most part I’d say that’s true for me, but today I learned something really interesting. I’m always fascinated with phobias, because some of them are rather extreme and I just can’t wrap my mind around. Like the fear of mustard. I saw this on some talk show years ago and apparently its not that uncommon, but certainly not run of the mill either! However, today, I found out that Scelerophobia is the fear of criminals! I mean, I don’t know who isn’t a little reluctant to befriend a known criminal, but this is like a legit fear.
People with this phobia usually have some pretty serious security, like multiple locks on their doors, security systems, guard dogs, crazy fences, and more! I’ve never broken into a home or business…that I can remember nor have I ever robbed anyone (shoplifting doesn’t count), but I suppose in some senses, I am or was a criminal. So, clearly, I don’t have this phobia or I’d be afraid of myself. *laughs*

Walk of Shame

She had stayed out all night with only a clutch. She finally understood why women carried such big purses and all the stuff she could have fit in one to avoid this walk of shame. It was pretty obvious she’s been out all night. Her updo was unraveling and the sunglasses hardly hid the fact that she was far too overdressed for any activity at this hour of the morning. She convinced herself that if she got coffee and a pastry she could mimic Holly Golightly from Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Except there was no Tiffany’s, there was only four more blocks from the coffee shop to her house.

Farewell, Summer

It would seem that while spring came early in my area, summer arrived on time. Now it seems that summer might be leaving on time, as well. This is highly unusual for where I live. August and September seem to be two of the hottest months of the year. Don’t get me wrong. July and August were more than happy to carry the load this year, but the temperatures have dropped significantly this past week and according to the weather predictions, they won’t be climbing back up anytime soon. I don’t mind, because I absolutely love fall. Plus, in SL its whatever season I want it to be! I’m pleased as punch to bid farewell to summer…its about to be cardigan season!!!

Night Air

There’s just something magical about night air, particularly around 9pm. The dark sky, the shadows, the temperature is dropping, and a perfect night would have a nice cool breeze. I can only assume that my fondness for this time of night has to do with my memories of working at the mall in my very reckless 20s. The mall closed at 9pm sharp and unless you worked in one of the restaurants or major department stores, you were out of there no later than 9:15pm. There’s a sense of community among mall employees. We’ve all dealt with the screaming kids, the obnoxious tweens, the confused parents, and lost elderly. We all worked in retail. It’s only 9:15pm…the night is young…we would hang out in the parking lot, smoke cigarettes, and make plans on where to meet up in an hour or two. The party would soon start.
Even now all these years later, I still feel that sense of freedom if I just so happen to be outside around that time of night and just the right breeze blows over me. It’s funny, its not something I’d thought I’d remember or reminisce about someday.
