Picture Ideas

I absolutely adore that at least three people offered up questions/topic in response to my post, “Dangerous Proposition.”  This is my final question from Troy, at least for now, and he’s asked, “Where do you get your picture ideas from?”
My ideas come from all sorts of places. Sometimes the clothing inspires me, other times it’s the furniture, or the pose. Nowadays there are backgrounds all over the place and those inspire me, too. There are times, though, that I really struggle for ideas. One thing I find myself doing it perusing the internet for ideas or watching videos on YouTube. Often times, I’m driving down the road or lying in bed half asleep and I’ll get some crazy idea. If I can, I’ll jot it down and try to bring my ideas to life later on. There are often ideas that simply sit around for months as I wait for the right outfit, hair, accessories, or scene to come along. So, to sum up the answer….I get my ideas from squirrels, okay?

Crazy Cat Lady

One of the many aspects of Second Life that I adore is that you can be an animal hoarder and not be judged. You can have as many cats, dogs, cows, horses, pigs, hamsters, birds, whatever as you want and your house doesn’t stink. They don’t make a mess and no one reports you to the authorities for running a puppy mill! See? It’s perfectly fine for me to be a crazy cat lady in SL and still be hot as hell!

PMS & Fluffy Ducks

Alright, so my best friend, Grace Sixpence, suggested a rather odd topic in response to my “Dangerous Proposition” post.  She requested “fluffy ducks and period pains, all in the one post please!” Then she laughed, because not only does she know I’ll do it, but she knows its going to be weird. It actually made me wonder about ducks and their periods. You see, a friend of mine offered up a very enlightening video a couple of years ago that taught me things about ducks that I’m not sure I ever wanted to know. However, here I am in the know….let me share the video with you: True Facts About The Duck
Go on, have a watch, then come back and we’ll discuss PMS & Fluffy Ducks.

Now, assuming you’ve watched the video, you know now all about the corkscrew “parts” and Grace brought up period pains. I cannot help but wonder if these fluffy little ducks have PMS or cramping. If they do, can you just imagine that pain spiraling along your insides like some sort of demonic roller-coaster? I know that when I’m cramping, if a so called fluffy duck were to cross my path, I’d probably ring its neck as I don’t particularly care for ducks to begin with.

There you have it, you’ve been educated and scarred for life. You can thank Grace for that. *nods & giggles*

To Turn or Not to Turn

To turn or not to turn the wheel….THAT is the question. Its like putting a shiny flashing button in front of a child and telling them not to push it. I don’t know about you, but I know my lil ass would have pushed the button. So, putting a giant wheel in front of me isn’t much different. The real question will be whether or not I’m strong enough to turn it and can I do so without breaking a nail? *giggles*

Artistic Influences

Today’s post is the answer to another question posed by Troy Nelson in response to my blog, “Dangerous Propositon.” He asked, “Who are your artistic influences?” Well, this question has me stumped, because I can’t cite any really. I just do my own thing. Sometimes I’m inspired by a song. Sometimes and outfit or accessory or even an item of decor just sparks my imagination and I’m off. Actually, there are a few SL photographers that inspire me to try something different. I doubt seriously if you’ll recognize most of their influence in my work, but a few will be pretty apparent. So, in saying that, I’m going to list a few names and each name with provide you with a direct link to their flickr account. Sabbian Paine, Ados Oldrich, Wendz Tempest, Rina Edenflower, Grace Sixpence, Kess Crystal, Brandon TaselianLoverdag, and so many others that I could fill a page listing them all. These are artists that I not only admire, but that inspire me to try new techniques. So, I guess I stand corrected, I can cite a few…*laughs* I just needed to really think about it for a minute.
I’m still open to topics and questions, so by all means feel free to leave comments. I promise that I do read them all. ♥

Serial Killers and Me

The other day I posted a blog asking my readers for topics for me to write about. I presented them the opportunity to challenge me with questions or random topics. I got a few responses and as promised, I’m going to use the topics and/or answer the questions, one way or another. So, one of my absolute best friends, Troy Nelson, posed the question, “Why are you so interested in serial killers?”

I’m not exactly sure why I’m so fascinated with them. The only plausible reason I can come up with is that as a child of the 70s, they were constantly in the news. Serial killers were the boogeyman and I wasn’t afraid of them. I was curious. I’m still curious. What makes them tick. What happened to them as children that they turned out that way. As I studied the most common profiles, I figured out that my father could have just as easily have become a serial killer. Then again, I suppose he still could be one, he’s just not been caught. I swear I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised. I suppose I’ve just always had a morbid curiosity for things that most children my age didn’t. I was far more curious about the devil than I was Jesus and I was far more interested in serial killers that super heroes. To answer Troy’s question….I don’t know, I just am.

Why Do I Blog?

So, I did a blog post called “Dangerous Proposition” where I asked my readers to give me topics to write about, because my creative well seems to be running dry these days. The first response I got was from my friend, Troy Nelson. He gave me four topics to start off with and this was the first one. As promised, I’m going to answer the question.
I started blogging for the therapeutic value. It was a creative outlet for both my photography and my passion for writing. Not to mention, I’m rather proud of some of the outfits I put together, so there was certainly some fun in it, too.
Now that I’ve been blogging consistently for over 18 months, I’ll compare it to heroin. This is something I’ve said many times. I blog now, because I’m addicted to it. If a single day goes by that I’m not taking a picture for a blog or at the very minimum working on a scene for a picture…well, let’s just say I’m not so fun to be around. So, there’s the answer to your first question, Troy. I’ll approach your other questions separately, each will be its own blog post.
I’d like to take a minute to thank Troy and Grace for submitting topics so far. I can honestly say, I’m already enjoying the challenge. Keep em coming!!!

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

Freeze Frame

It’s 1am and I’m awake doing a blog post. I hope you don’t expect too much from me at this hour. However, I will give you this…
Before there was Vogue by Madonna, there was Freeze Frame by J. Geils Band and we “struck a pose” and “freezed framed” to this song quite a bit. Mind you, I was a kid when this song came out, but it was definitely a catchy tune. Enjoy♥

J. Geils Band – Freeze Frame

Freeze-frame

I could see it was a rough-cut Tuesday
Slow-motion weekdays stare me down
Her lipstick reflex got me wound
There were no defects to be found
Snapshot image froze without a sound

Thursday mornin’ was a hot flash-factor
Her face still focused in my mind
Test-strip proof-sheet love is hard to find
Friday night, we’ll dance the spotlight grind
Stop-time heart for me if she’s not mine

Freeze-frame! (Freeze-frame!) [x3]
Freeze-frame! Now Freeze!

Now I’m lookin’ at a flashback Sunday
Zoom lens feelings just won’t disappear
Close-up darkroom sweet-talk in my ear
Her hot-spot love for me is strong
This freeze-frame moment can’t be wrong

Freeze-frame! (Freeze-frame!) [x3]
Freeze-frame! Now Freeze!

Freeze-frame! (Freeze-frame!) [x3]
Freeze-frame! Now Freeze!

Freeze-frame, freeze-frame, freeze-frame
Freeze-frame, start to freeze, freeze, freeze

Start to freeze, freeze
Freeze-frame, freeze-frame, freeze-frame

Guarantees

There aren’t many guarantees in life, even the stuff sold with “satisfaction guaranteed” can’t really hold true. However, there’s one thing that never fails a woman with large breasts. Tanks tops! Sleep in a tank top or some slinky little nightie with spaghetti straps and you are guaranteed to wake up with one if not both of your titties out.
