Eavesdropping

Killing Strangers

Alright, this is most definitely a song post, as this song was going through my head the entire time I worked on this picture. I hope Marilyn Manson doesn’t offend you. If he does, well, you could just give the lyrics a read or skip to the credits. *blows you a kiss* ♥

Marilyn Manson – Killing Strangers

This world doesn’t need no opera, we need it for the operation
We don’t need a bigga knife (a bigga knife)
‘Cause we got guns, we got guns, we got guns (we got guns)
We got guns, you betta run (ya betta run, ya betta run, ya betta run)
We’re killin’ strangers, we’re killin’ strangers
We’re killin’ strangers, so we don’t kill the ones that we love
We’re killin’ strangers, we’re killin’ strangers
We’re killin’ strangers, so we don’t kill the ones that we love
Love, love
We pack demolition
We can’t pack emotion
Dynamite, we just might
So blow us a kiss, blow us a kiss
Blow us a kiss, and we’ll blow you to pieces
We’re killin’ strangers, we’re killin’ strangers
We’re killin’ strangers, so we don’t kill the ones that we love
Love, love, love
And we got guns, we got guns
Motherfuckers better, better better run
We got guns, we got guns
Motherfuckers better run
We got guns, we got guns
Motherfuckers better, better better run
We got guns, we got guns
Motherfuckers better run
We’re killin’ strangers, we’re killin’ strangers
We’re killin’ strangers, so we don’t kill the ones that we love
We’re killin’ strangers, we’re killin’ strangers
We’re killin’ strangers, so we don’t kill the ones that we love
Love, love, love, love, love, love
You better run
We got guns, we got guns, we got guns

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.

Extra! Extra!

Once upon a time, kids would stand on street corners selling newspapers while yelling, “EXTRA! EXTRA! Read all about it!” They might even go so far as to toss out the title of the story on the front page. These days we get our news from a variety of electronic devices. So, I figured my best bet was to sit pretty on the ATM machine…that should get your attention, right?
Its Friday and I think most of us are feeling pretty good about that! There’s been lots of events just waiting for us to get paid. There’s an endless array of retail therapy, so no matter how bad your week has been, relief is in sight! Its also the weekend that Cosmo switches things up, so if you want to grab this cute little number from Scandalize go on over and grab it tonight. It might be a few days before it makes it to the mainstore. In the meanwhile, you can hit up Kustom9 for that beautiful variety they continue to deliver. Bueno has surprised us with a diverse set of backdrops and phones!
I hope you all have a great weekend and Happy Shopping!♥

Legends

Litte Joey loved going through his grandfathers old pictures. As he pulled out a particularly old one he’d never seen before, he looked up at his grandfather, “Who is this, PapPaw?”
The old man’s shaky hands reached for the photo and smiled, “Oh, these two are legends. Josh and Sady were responsible for saving the entire grid from impending doom.”
Little Joey’s eyes got big, “Oh PapPaw, tell me more! Tell me all about Sosh and Jady!”
The old man chuckled and put the photo back in the box closing it up, “Another time, Joey, time for you to get to bed.” He tucked his grandson in for the night, kissing his forehead, “Sweet dreams, Joey.”
As he climbed into bed with his wife, he kissed her sweetly, “Little Joey found the picture of us from the Apocalypse party at ThereAfter. Hope you’re ready to be a hero,” he chuckles, “Telling him quite a story tomorrow.”
Sady giggled and kissed Josh, “You and your stories, my love.”
“I learned it from watching you, okay?”
They both laughed and slipped off to sleep.

The Belgian Food Truck

Grace & Sady’s Road Trip-Part 5

So, we’ve been driving a while and have eaten our fair share of fast food. I think Grace’s ass is proof of that and our little trip to the gym didn’t help much. We were driving along some country road when we saw a sign for the Best Belgian Sausages In The Nation. Pretty sure this wasn’t the place we were told about at the gym, but Grace started screaming about how bad she wanted a sausage. We turned off the main road and went down some very bumpy dirt road until we came upon an old farmhouse with a quaint little food truck parked outside. As we parked the car a very tall, muscular guy come out of the house, nods at us, and steps into the food truck.
Grace and I looked from him to each other and bursts into giggles. “I’ll take his sausage,” I whispered.
Grace smirked and stepped up to the stand, “I’ll take your biggest sausage and some chips!” She grabbed her food, plopped down on the stairs and devoured the sausage before I could even read the menu. When I reached for one of her fries she growled at me, turned her back and refused to share. The food truck guy was so hot, I could barely speak, but did manage to point to some kebab thing and an order of chips like Grace had gotten. He smiled at me and made my stomach flutter.

time to eat

Once we had our food, the hottie in the food truck winked at me, then disappeared back into the farmhouse, leaving us alone to consume our meal like the proper ladies we were. *laughs* Our bellies full, we sat and pondered our next move.
“Have you called anyone back home to tell them where we are, Grace?”
“Nah, don’t want them tracking us down. The less they know, the better.”
I nodded in agreement, “You know….we’re running low on funds. Where are we going to get more money?”
“Didn’t you strip for a while, Sady? Can’t we just pop into a club and earn a few dollars that way?”
“Grace, dunno if you noticed but we’re practically in Amish country. I don’t think there’s a lot of strip clubs around here.”
Grace just grinned and rubbed her belly, “Where there’s a will, there’s a way, and I know a way.”
I just laughed. I knew she was up to no good, but there was no way I was missing out on whatever mischief she might come up with, “Count me in!”
“Ya wanna see if the lover boy wants to join us?” Grace laughed.
“Ooooh, do you think he would?”
“Fuck off! You’re not going to make googly eyes at each other the whole trip…unless he’s got some money….” Grace eyes the register in the food truck, then looked to the farmhouse. “Tell me if you see him coming!” She snuck into the food truck and grabbed the money from the till, “RUNNNN!!!!”
We jumped in the car and sped off. Grace had just robbed the food truck! I was in shock!

The Work Out

Part 4 of the Grace & Sady Road Trip

We’ve been eating more than our fair share of junk food and drinking for all of Ireland. So, when we happened across a gym, we decided to stop and get in a work out. We were determined to get to the beach eventually and we needed to be fit for those bikinis we packed. It was a small town, so the gym was lacking in luxury equipment, but we managed to go a few rounds with a punching bag as well some weight lifting and some squats. Although, I didn’t know that punching bags hit back. OUCH! Damn near knocked us out…and its from the floor that we did squats as we tried to stand up after we were damn near knocked out. Naturally with Grace’s thunder thighs, she needed a little help getting up, but we’re calling it squats. *nods*
gym2 pt4

I might should mention that we were a little stoned while we were at the gym. Lucky for us, the place was pretty deserted. We were able to flirt with the old guy running the place just long enough for him to snap a few pictures of us. As you can see, we worked up quite a swear. *laughs* He even recommended a place down the road where we’d find some good food and a nice place to relax. I suspect he told us about the food so we’d have to come back to his gym. Ha! I don’t think that’s going to happen!
Go on over to Grace’s blog to read her side of the story and stay tuned for part 5!

Grace & Sady Road Trip-Motel (pt 2)

Part 2 of the Grace & Sady Road Trip

Grace and I have been driving for a while. We’ve taken turns at the wheel. We’ve flashed truckers. We’ve sang our hearts out. We’ve exhausted ourselves, but we finally found a little motel out in the middle of nowhere.
now what

Sady bursts into giggles as they get out of the car, pointing at the huge amenity sign right out front, “Look, Grace, they have porn!”
“Like I want to watch porn with YOU!” she laughs.
“Grace, look around, you think they have cable way out here? We can turn off the sound and make our own monologue! It’ll be hilarious, ” Sady chuckled to herself, remembering the last time they watched porn together, along with their good friend, Tracy.
“Ok, yeah, we can do that. I wonder if they have any place to eat around here,” she looks around and hangs her head, “Not looking so good. At least we still have some snacks from the gas station.”
She reaches into the car. I assume she’s grabbing a snack or her purse…I turn to walk towards the office to get us a room. I turn my head just in time to see her running towards me…

we're here

…with a magic wand in her hand! She’s coming towards me with it, “Grace! WTF are you doing….get that thing away from me!”
Grace is just laughing as she charges at me with her wireless wand just a buzzing, “Awww, Sady, don’t be scared, didn’t you get one of these when you got your Bound Box?”
“Yes, but I didn’t bring it on the trip, ya cunt!”
She chased me all the way around the sign and into the office with that thing buzzing. *laughs*
As we’re paying for the room, Grace asked the clerk if they have any place to eat or buy booze nearby. Not surprisingly the answer was no, but they did have a vending machine in the office and the manager, a pervy looking old man,  offered us a bottle of vodka and pointed out the window, “We’ve got complimentary adult movies and a pool if you ladies get too hot.” He chuckled to himself as Grace tried to hide the wand behind her back at this point, but I’m quite sure he saw it.
We took the vodka and giggled. Grace had managed to force the narrow end of the wand into her back pocket. As Grace grabbed some snacks from the machine, I reached forward and hit the button to make it start buzzing against her ass. We bursts into giggles and ran from the office with snacks and her buzzing wand in tow.
“Ya bitch,” she yells as I race to the car and grab our bags.
We were too exhausted to do much of anything that night, but planned to take a swim before hitting the road again the next day….

My Ride

“Oh, oh
I’m falling so I’m taking my time on my ride
Oh, I’m falling so I’m taking my time on my ride
Taking my time on my ride”
Twenty One Pilots-Ride

So, this song started on repeat in my head the minute I started taking this picture and at first I was like, ok, I’ll give them the lyrics and let it go. Then I listened a few more times. Then I read the lyrics without the music, because I love poetry and I recognized the true depth of the song. While its the chorus that usually sticks with us and plants some lovely ear worms, the meat of this song comes in the too quick to keep up in a sing along portion. Give it a read, think it over, then meet me after the row of stars.

 

“I’d die for you
That’s easy to say
We have a list of people that we would take
A bullet for them
A bullet for you
A bullet for everybody in this room
But I don’t see to see many bullets coming through
See many bullets coming through
Metaphorically I’m the man
But literally I don’t know what I’d do
I’d live for you
And that’s hard to do
Even harder to say
When you know it’s not true
Even harder to write
When you know that tonight
There are people back home which are talking to you
But then you ignore them still
All these questions they’re forming like
Who would you live for?
Who would you die for?
And would you ever kill?”

I hope you have thought it over to yourself, before just skipping to this part. Either way, here’s what I’ve got to say about it…if you’re interested. It’s okay if you’re not, you can scroll on down to the credits. I’ll never know and even if you told me, I’m not going to get butthurt over it. Now that I’ve stalled you enough to make you think one way or the other…let’s jump on down that rabbit hole, shall we?

The whole “die for you” and “take a bullet for you” thing. I can’t know if you’ve ever said it, but I sure have. I can’t know if you have taken a bullet for someone or not, but I haven’t. I have, however, had a gun pulled on me and was more than willing to take that bullet. Being a female, I didn’t have to take the bullet afterall, I just had to take something else while the gun was held to my head. I can say without hesitation that I would be willing to take a bullet for a number of people, but that’s because I’m not afraid to die. I also know that a bullet does not always bring death. So, that answers the next question, as to who I’d die for, because I’d die for quite a number of people if it meant they could keep on living. It’s those same people that I live for, because truth be told if it were just up to me I would have been gone well over a year ago.  I didn’t choose to live for myself. I chose not to bring sorrow and suffering to those I love. Last question, would I ever kill? Yes. If I felt I had no other choice, most definitely. Oddly enough, all of these questions are things I’ve thought about in the past, but I never considered how deeply this song would make think about my past, my present, or my future. Ironically the song points out that the singer has been thinking too much. In turn, the song has caused me to think quite a lot.
After all that heavy thinking, I think I’ll just relax and enjoy what’s left of my ride. Here’s hoping that you can make the most of yours and enjoy it, because as many of us have realized this last week…the ride isn’t as long as we sometimes think it is…*lifts her coffee to the sky*…let’s try to enjoy the ride today as long as it last.
