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.

Boop this nose, Sassy!

Last September, I did a droog look that I absolutely loved in an ironic post called, World Peace. So clearly, this is not the first time I’ve done a post that refers to one of my favorite movies, Clockwork Orange, but sometimes things just fall together in such a way that I cannot resist. This picture is one of those things. First ChicModa releases a retexture of the Kat dress that was originally released in the April BishBox with a boop graphics. I knew I had to blog it, because Sassy Nitely is the queen of booping. Then my dear friend, Kess Crystal, gave me an extra hair that she nabbed from a lock&tuft gacha and passed it to me saying, “cos nothing says Sady more than Clockwork Orange hat hair!” I love that she remembered how much I love that movie. Naturally, between the hair and the dress…and now, of course, the movie…I couldn’t help but think of the masks they wore in one particularly uncomfortable scene of the movie. I, also, couldn’t help but think of my friend, Rom, because he has such a mask. So, off to marketplace I went, because if I’m going to blog a boop dress with droog hair, I need the ultimate dick nose mask, Boop this nose, Sassy! *laughs* She’s going to kill me!
Alright, so once again, you’ve had a peek into my twisted little head and how things often unfold. *giggles* You all know by now that I’ve got a good heart, but a very mischievous side, as well. So, surely this is not surprise to any of you…not really.

Apex Predator

Okay, so its been a week of fluffy and I’m quite over it. *laughs* Y’all didn’t expect that madness to last, did you? Good, cuz I’m back and I’m feeling some Otep this morning. Soooo, without further adieu, I give you one of my favorite Otep songs and the lyrics.

She’s pounding on the door
She’s crawling on the floor
Oh, she’s so coy
She’s scratching on the walls
She’s clawing at the gauze
She’s so coy
She’s gnawing on the ropes
She’s pulling at the hooks
She’s so coy
Oh, you know she wants it
The way that she taunts me
Damn, she’s so coy
It’s the Apex Predator
With a sermon for the listener
Seduce & Destroy
Your head upon a stick
Would look really sick
But they would call me crazy
For the way I spoke to it
I’d ask about it’s day
Did it miss me while I was away?
Tight lipped from the stitches
It wouldn’t have much to say
The rest would be kept in a
Tight little dress
Propped up in the corner
A perfect little pet
Locked in a box
So I can keep stock
A trophy to show me
That all is not lost
The writing on the wall
A psalm

Let’s Talk

Can you believe she said that? Did that? Can you? I can promise you that you can and you do. We all do. No, we didn’t see it. No, we weren’t part of it even the slightest bit of a friend of a friend way. Of course we won’t repeat it (I like to believe we are all a little better at keeping our mouths shut, but fb tells me otherwise.). I see all sorts of people meddling in other people’s affairs. Now, if you’re not practically family, I think you should probably stay out of it. Afterall, what’s your motive for getting involved? Don’t even try that whole, “If it was me, I’d wanna know” line, cuz lets face it…you’re not him/her and you don’t have a clue what they want and if you’re not 100% proof positive about what’s being said, you should probably take it with a grain of salt, perhaps check the motives of your storyteller and go on about your own business. *nods*
I love how people say they’re all about not getting sucked into drama, but will be the first to spread gossip…thus fueling the drama mills. We can’t avoid ALL drama, but there are some sure fire ways to diminish drama…IF that’s what you really want to do.
Let’s start with the first and most obvious thing. Keep what you hear…keep it all to yourself. C’mon, knowledge is power, so empower yourself and stop running your mouth. Plus, people are a lot more likely to confide in you when you’re not telling everyone’s business. You wanna be trustworthy, dontcha? Of course, you do! So…ZIP THE LIP!
Secondly, stay out of it as much as possible. If you don’t have a dog in the fight, you sure as hell don’t need to go blasting your opinion to everyone that listens. So, back to zipping the lip. Surround yourself with trustworthy people for your gossiping needs, your venting needs. Know that you can trust them with any awful thing you say and that they can trust you. Its simple to get it all out of your system, without getting directly involved and stirring up even more drama, right? Right!
Sooo, today we learned to…ZIP THE LIP!

Okay, I’ll end this here for now…but I retain the right to revisit this topic if you all don’t start spreading some love, damnit! *giggles & blows kisses*

One Year

“Five hundred twenty-five thousand
Six hundred minutes
Five hundred twenty-five thousand
Moments so dear
Five hundred twenty-five thousand
Six hundred minutes
How do you measure – measure a year?
In daylights – in sunsets
In midnights – in cups of coffee
In inches – in miles
In laughter – in strife”
Rent – Seasons of Love

Today marks one year since my first post to this blog and its been an amazing journey. It started off as me finding a creative outlet that I found therapeutic. I was encouraged and supported by three of the most amazing women I’ve ever known in my 10+ years on the grid. I can’t thank Kess, Tracy, and Grace enough for their continued support. I would not be the woman I am today without them. These are women I hope to never lose touch with and I’d love to think that someday the four of us could redefine the Golden Girls…someday…we’re not THAT old yet…*laughs*

I don’t want to just thank them. I want to thank the readers and the designers who have taken me on a blogger. Not just the ones I currently blog for, but all the designers along the way that believed in me enough to provide me with blogger packs. I appreciate every single person that looks at my blog, whether they read my words or simply like my photos. I am always amazed that people actually want to look at my photos and/or read my words. Today, I am filled with gratitude for all the support and it is because of all this that I still love blogging. I’m growing as a writer and a photographer with each passing day. Thank YOU…yes, you…for reading this, for clicking my links, for supporting me…for liking what I do. I truly hope each and everyone of you has a week filled with love and laughter. ♥

Smokin’ in the Boys Room

Okay, totally telling my age here, but when I was in the 7th grade, I started smoking. Save your lectures, I’m an adult now. You’re too late. Anyway, those of that did smoke, usually did it behind the store that was behind our school…before and after school, but on occasion the true rebels would sneak downstairs to the 6th grade boy’s bathroom, as no teachers ever went in there and it had a huge window that opened to the back of the school away from everything. The logistic were perfect for all sorts of “illegal” activities…of course, this meant any boys in the 6th grade had to hold it or go upstairs and brave the 7th graders bathroom.
A few years later, the song, “Smoking in the Boys Room” by Mötley Crüe was all the rage and a few of us from middle school were still friends and wished that the song had come out sooner. We wondered if people still smoked in the bathroom of our old stomping grounds. I know they don’t anymore as they tore the school down last year and a Walmart grew in its place.

Chasing Time

Chasing Time
I feel like I’m constantly doing just that. No matter how well I plan, time continues to escape me. It flies when I’m having fun. It drags when I’m stuck somewhere I don’t want to be. Worst of all, there never seems to be enough time for everything I want to do. The ultimate buzz kill is how quickly time truly passes when I’m not paying attention.
My vacation was over much too soon. The drive home felt like an eternity. There was so much I wanted to get done when I got home and today, but the energy and time eluded me. And when I think about how many years I’ve spent in Second Life, well, it just doesn’t seem like 10+ years.
I thought I had my blogging all sorted so I could go to Florida for a few days and not get behind. Murphy’s Law told me otherwise. So, now I’m in a mad rush to meet obligations to friends in SL and get things blogged in an appropriate amount of time. Don’t get me wrong, I love it. I love having a full schedule and being on a deadline does not mean my creativity stops. Actually, I had several ideas for photos while I was out of town and quickly jotted them down…cuz…yeah, my memory isn’t as reliable as my creative mind. *laughs*

time2
So, you all should get ready, cuz I’m on a roll with blogging and I’ve got soooo many wonderful things to share with you that I simply can’t wait. Don’t be the least bit surprised if you see more than one post in a day.
