Choose the King and Queen of Fantasy Faire (and their Chancellor too)!

When it comes to Fantasy, we all have our favorite characters. Some may be good – Gandalf or Harry Potter, Belle or Menolly.  Or maybe we love the dark side – Maleficent or Steerpike. Or maybe we enjoy the conflicted – Jamie Lannister or Mrs Coulter. Whoever is your favorite, you have a chance to … Continue reading Choose the King and Queen of Fantasy Faire (and their Chancellor too)! →

Almost Cut My Hair

When you've had a couple friends bugging you to adopt a shorter haircut, and then you randomly find a Barber Shop, maybe you suddenly have a great idea for a photo!
As luck would have it, the Metro set from Apple Fall came out just as I was thinking about how to set everything up, and it completed the scene perfectly.
And now, I will run my fingers through my long hair and wave to Katya & Skye, then pick up my guitar while avoiding the haircut for a little while longer.



"Almost Cut My Hair" performed by Crosby, Stills, Nash & YoungAlmost cut my hair, it happened just the other day.It's getting' kinda long, I coulda said it wasn't in my way.But I didn't and I wonder why, I feel like letting my freak flag fly,Cause I feel like I owe it to someone.

Why Do You Relay?

“Why do you relay?” It is an excellent question: not so much for self-knowledge, everyone knows their own reasons to relay very well, but it is a good question to ask, to answer and to share. To spread the hope and to show no one is alone in this. This spring we are asking this … Continue reading Why Do You Relay? →

Take Your Time

I love to explore beautiful sims that my friends have shared with me. And it's especially cool to find one that allows rezz, which seems to be pretty rare.
L'Arc en Ciel is wonderfully landscaped, and has many different area to explore or take photos. They require group membership to rezz, at a modest 100L$, but it's well worth it if that modest amount helps the sim owner to keep the land open. In fact, I'd happily join several land groups just to know I could freely add items to a scene to get the photos I want.
The windlight used isn't the region default (I needed the shadow just right), but the default was pretty as well.
Go visit L'Arc en Ciel, and don't forget to donate to beautiful sims if you can!

Sun Daze

I was feeling lazy, so I took a lazy photo, and added a lazy song.
My garage is a favourite spot to just sit around, so reading a book seemed like a totally natural thing to do there, laying in the sun.
The corner stool from Kuro, new at Consensual, has 3 book poses and several adult couples poses (unrelated to reading).
I'm wearing new hair from Exile, and shades and a necklace from the Men's Only Monthly event.
And now, it's time to work on my laid back, and get my Sun Daze on.




"Sun Daze" by Florida Georgia LineBut all I wanna do today is wear my favorite shades and get stonedWork a little less, play a little moreThat's what this day is forAnd all I wanna do is lace my J's and lay some Jack in my CokeWork on my lay back, ain't nothin' wrong withGettin' my sun daze on, gettin' my sun daze on

Cherry Waves

A new round of TLC just opened, and I met up with my friend Kaelyn and toured the event. We saw the anchors from United Colors and she laughed and suggested they'd make a good photo without clothing, since they cover all the naughty bits.
Being the shy guy that I am, it took a bit of convincing, but sure, why not!

If you get a chance, go see TLC's new build!



"Cherry Waves" by DeftonesYou hang anchors over my neckI liked it at firstBut the more you you laughed, the crazier I came
And the waves suck you in, and you drown

Is that what you want?You...Well that's what you've got

Flying High Again

Well, surprise everyone, I'm going to actually blog at least 3 times in a week, this will be the first time since forever!
Berry's meme this week is What Is Your Perception of Second Life? and she asks for a video of our favourite place, and asks way too many questions. But I'm up for the challenge, so I made my first video ever. Now, let's get to the questions:
What is your perception of Second Life? 
It's a place to have fun, create, explore and socialize. There's something for everyone, because you can do anything you like!

Do you feel the portrayal or reputation Second Life seems to have in the mainstream media is justified? 
Nope, but they need to sensationalize things to sell ads. Or maybe I'm cynical?

Do you talk about your Second Life with your real life friends and family?
No, it's my personal getaway from the real world. it wouldn't be an escape otherwise.

What is your most favorite thing to do in Second Life?
Laugh and talk with friends while doing whatever we want to do.… Read the rest

End Of The Beginning

Earlier this week, Berry posted a new meme called First & Recent Challenge.

I replied in her comment section that I'd posted a photo comparing my avatar to an early version last spring right here for another meme, but I've decided to try it again just for kicks. I'm comparing now my first blog photo with a new photo, which isn't going to be a drastic difference since I've only been blogging for a couple years.
When I started blogging, mesh was here. I was just learning how play with shadows and windlights. I haven't change my style much I don't think, I still prefer to leave the photo mostly untouched, using the tools available in the viewer to add colour and lighting. Since October 2012, the biggest advance has been mesh bodies. Seriously though, it's still not really a thing for guys. By my count women have 4 fantastic options for bodies, and men... at this moment it's one. Hopefully that will change!
Since this is my first time with a fully mesh body (even if you can't see it this time), I'm considering this the end of the beginning phase of my SL blogging experience.… Read the rest

The Faire Spirit Awakens

The Spirit of Faire stirs within her slumber, awakens to the touch of spring, to the call of growth. Her lands shift with her in slow, drowsy motion, still mere dreams waiting to be called to being, waiting to be shaped and given form. It is spring. It is almost time. The Fairelands have begun … Continue reading The Faire Spirit Awakens →

Better Than People

I'm going to come right out and say it: I liked Frozen. It took me a long time to actually watch it after everyone IN THE WORLD started talking about it, but I finally watched. I especially liked Reindeer(s) Are Better Than People, because even the least cynical of us agree that our pets are better companions than humans, because you can always count on them to cheer you up.
I hope you all recognize me (the guy on the right), because I've dressed up to play the part for Berry's Movie Meme. Sing along with me!

Trim Your Tree

It's another ROMP weekend!.
I saw a few festive themed items, and I decided I HAD to do a Christmas song for today's post. Considering that ROMP is a celebration of adult items, why not celebrate with an adult Christmas song. (And there are a lot of holiday songs with double entendres!)

Have a great weekend, and do some ROMPing.

Half Alive

I’ve never really been a big fan of Halloween.  I don’t boycott it, I give out candy to the kids who come to the door, but it’s just never really been my thing.  I notice some of my neighbours already decorating, trees hung with spiderwebs, skeletons and gravestones on the grass, and I just kind of shrug and close the curtains.  Intellectually I comprehend the thrill of fear, but I just can’t get into it.  Not this year. The best part of Halloween really is Second Life, and particularly all the themed creations out there that can be used as inspiration.  Take this skin for example, a group gift from Lumae called “Lady Death”.  The minute I saw it I knew it would break my blogging silence. Fear is a strange thing, unique to each and every one of us.  You have one don’t you.  Is it spiders?  Ghosts?  Flying in a plane?  Commitment?   The fears we know are easy, we can for the most part go through our lives if not avoiding at least preparing to cope with them. … Read the restHalf Alive

Live Wire

He wasn't what you'd think of as a hero.... covered in tattoos, always drinking, and always angry.
Yet when lightning struck a power pole during a freak storm while he attended a bush party, he didn't hesitate to jump in the water to save his drinking buddies, not even thinking about the high current running through the power wires. When lightning struck twice while he handled the cables, he gained his super powers.
While he may never be invited to join a hero club with all of the goody two-shoes heroes, he accepted his gift, determined to do some good.... he even accepted the name his buddies gave him, "Live Wire."



Live Wire (performed by Cadillac Three)Plug me inI'm alive tonightOut on the streets againTurn me onI'm too hot to stopSomething you'll never forgetTake my fistBreak down wallsI'm on top tonightNo, noYou better turn me looseYou better set me freeCause I'm hot, young, running freeA little bit better than I use to be
