Parka your Cargo

This is my "male alter ego" & the very first "alt" I ever made on Second Life, about three or so years ago!. He is very special to me but I have been kind of neglecting him lately so I decided he deserved a new outfit. I went to Saikin & got this great mesh parka & the cargo pants. They also had some really great boots I wanted to pick up but I ran out of money, so maybe next month he can go shopping again. I am also going to start doing some of the male-centric hunts with him again. I will admit I am usually more comfortable using my female avatar, but it can be very liberating & fun to walk around SL as just a regular "dude," & it's also more challenging to find great, quality, fashionable clothes I like that are for guys.

Say Hello to My Little Friend!

Thanks to everyone who helped pick a name for my Mother's new puppy & to our friend Denise, who chose the winning name. We went though every name you can think of & this one really just seems to suit him. We haven't decided if he is Ricky Ricardo or Ricky Martin, yet - That we will still have to figure out! Thanks again for everyone's help!

******EDITORIAL NOTE******  My Mother has decided that this little bundle of joy is now Rikki Tikki Tavi - in reference to the valiant mongoose from the beloved Rudyard Kipling tale. (Even though he is more like a spastic, bitey little terror at this point, nomnomnom :P) Anyway, I will make ANOTHER, updated picture for him. I have more, newer pictures anyway - he's put on some weight & has grown!

Candy Heartbreaker (Belated Valentine)

I meant to post this on Valentines Day, but some desktop computer issues, (which my poor boyfriend Ted stayed up all night & most of the day working on) & my lack of good or speedy photoshop skills & also the fact that I had to take a break to do some first life activities, (like go visit my Mom's new puppy. As you know we were trying to find a name for him. We have settled on "Ricky," but my Grampy wants to call him "Micky," like the mouse, because he's so small, but we don't like that, so we are locked in battle over this, lol,) Anyway, I was only able to use my laptop to post music blogs recently because it won't run Second Life. There are still some issues, but I was finally able to get through a few hours of walking around to gather my SLurls for this outfit I have been wearing a couple days & posing for pictures long enough to deliver you a belated Valentine. It actually worked out ok, because when I woke up yesterday I discovered that my friend Kiba Tachikawa, the owner of Actuate Eden, just put out a great face tattoo inspired by the G-Dragon song & video Heartbreaker that REALLY finished of my Valentines look & if I had posted earlier I don't think it would have been quite the same <3

Happy Valentines Day!

To all my Friends & Family all over the World, with Affection & Regard <3

Blues Funeral

Today I received the Mark Lanegan Band cd that I had pre-ordered about a month & a half ago. I am a very longtime, hardcore fan & I have to say I am not disappointed at all. It's really beautiful: full of dark, evocative poetry, lush emotion, masterful musicianship & ghostly harmonies...I couldn't be happier. The mix is clear & his voice is gorgeous, deep & haunting, touching my very soul. I'm in heaven. He was the lead singer of The Screaming Trees, has a prolific solo career, was in the Queens of the Stone Age, worked with U.N.K.L.E, worked on a children's album, done three albums with Isobel Campbell, worked with Greg Dulli on the Gutter Twins, done albums with the Soulsavers & probably a million other things I don't even know about. He is wildly respected all over the world & revered by his fans & other musicians for his talent. He is in the top three of my all-time favorite male singers & probably the top three lyricists as well. Amazing man. I could go on & on. I think I own ALMOST everything Mark Lanegan has done but actually, no, that would be pretty hard since he never stops working. Check him out. He's very serious. He does not move, live, he's like a tree. So stoic!

 The Gravedigger's Song (from Blues Funeral)

Please enjoy some older Lanegan favorites, you might be surprised!:

Gospel Plow: (with Screaming Trees)
 Carnival: (From Whiskey for the Holy Ghost)

Mockingbirds: (From the Winding Sheet)

Morning Glory Wine: (pretty sure Gregg Dulli is on this one, track is on the album Bubblegum)

Methamphetamine Blues: (features Josh Homme, PJ Harvey & Jonathan Russo)

Hanging Tree: (Live, with Queens of the Stone Age)

 Revival: (singing with the great band Soulsavers who I saw him with! The video is quite interesting as well.)

Sunrise: (again off of Whiskey for the Holy Ghost. This is an outstanding album, start to finish. Really a gem.)

Wish You Well: (Probably one of my all-time favorites. So short & simple sounding musically, but the lyrics are pure beautiful, sad poetry to me. Makes me cry like a baby.)

Help Name Him!

Help us name my Mom & Grampy's new Chihuahua. He's really tiny. We put a quarter down so you can see how small he is - his little paws are the same diameter as the quarter! He's just a pup, too, only about six weeks old. Possible names so far: Arlo, Mario, Moby & Paco, but we are open to suggestions. HELP!

I was doing the Cafe Hunt & got a lot of nice free prizes but I also ended up buying a lot, like these shorts, vest/blouse combo & great hat from RibboN. I love this store. The stuff is so cute, inexpensive & I have blogged them before. Here are those Nardcotix shoes again, from the last post. I told you I love them! I'm sure this won't be the last time I'll use them, either.

Armed Elegance

It seems like ages since I've posted. No, I'm not a current, up-to-the-minute SL blogger. I'm more of a slow, thoughtful, broke/lazy person who takes their time & uses things over & over a LOT, so if you are looking for the "latest thing" you already know this isn't the blog for that, lol. Anyway, I got this dress a while back & never blogged it, but I think it's really beautiful & I have worn it a lot, so here you go. It's called Armed Elegance & it's from House of Fox. The shoes are from Nardcotix & I have been wearing them so much as you will see in upcoming posts. They just seem to go with everything in my inventory.
