Memories are just where you laid them Drag the waters ’til the depths give up their dead What did you expect to find? Was there something you left behind? Don’t you remember anything I said when I said Don’t fall away and leave me to myself Don’t fall away And leave love bleedin’ in my hands, in my hands again Leave love bleedin’ in my hands, in my hands Love lies bleedin’ Oh, hold me now, I feel contagious Am I the only place that you’ve left to go? She cries her life is like Some movie black and white Dead actors fakin’ lines Over and over and over again she cries
Neon lights glisten off the streets The moonlight swallowed up by breathing electricity Salvation hovers in the sky Dream of a life inside while we escape just to survive Let go, take flight Dreams begin to reignite So clear, so bright We’re glowing in the dead of night Plug in, online The data stream linking our minds Circuits entwined We’ll dream of Neo-Tokyo tonight We’re made of flesh, circuit and bone The only world we’ve known, these empty streets we walk alone Salvation blocking out the Sun Beneath its shadow cast I dream with my Aphelion
In November of last year, Atelier Burgundy & Pitaya teamed up to create a bookstore gacha for Anthem. Fortunately for me, there was a fatpack option. Without any hesitation or even too close of a look, I snatched it up and sat on it for months. I knew a time would come that I would finally create a used bookstore. Well, here comes Anthem with a boho themed round for April and lucky little me, had access to Bueno’s set, as well as THOR’s. Now, get this…InsurreKtion recently invited me to join their blogging team as a VIP and there it was, sitting so pretty in Blogotex! A boho deco set!!! I knew this was it! I quickly rezzed all the things….the bookstore fatpack and all three of my boho sets. But wait, there’s more magic…Mikel Monk, the creator behind the Bueno brand, had named his couch, Kerouac!! Now, I realize there are tons of readers out there that have their own connection to Jack Kerouac, but for a while in college, I was absolutely obsessed. I even had a cat named, Jack Kerouac! I mean, clearly this was a sign, right?
I did my best to list everything in the credits, but as you can see from the photo, I used a ton of items to create my used bookstore. I was picturing one of those really cozy used book stores, that brings in a few treats first thing in the morning with a couple of canisters of coffee, but once those things are gone, that’s it for the day. They sell a variety of collectibles, new and used books, and encourage their customers to hang out.
I typed book and books into my inventory search and just started rezzing out everything. I didn’t bother trying to list every single collection, stack, and row of books, because that would have taken me all day. Let’s face it, I’d rather be reading! I did grab the names of some things, but if you really want to know a specific item in the photo, just let me know. I don’t think I’ll be tearing down this scene anytime soon. ☺
Your eyes, so crisp, so green Sour apple baby, but you taste so sweet You got hips like Jagger and two left feet And I wonder if you’d like to meet Your voice is velvet through a telephone You can come to mine, but both my roommates are home Think I know a bar where they would leave us alone And I wonder if you’d take it slow Oh, we’re dancin’ in my livin’ room And up come my fists And I say I’m only playing, but The truth is this That I’ve never seen a mouth that I would kill to kiss And I’m terrified, but I can’t resist And I said Beautiful stranger, here you are in my arms and I know That beautiful strangers only come along to do me wrong And I hope Beautiful stranger, here you are in my arms But I think it’s finally, finally, finally, finally, finally safe For me to fall
And how far is halfway there? I didn’t see you on the trail Did almost become good enough? Should a good life be so hard won? Is that what our dreams have become? Sometimes when you’re shooting an arrow It can fly across the sky so proud I would go all the way to the sun If I didn’t have to come back down
One of the challenges of being a blogger is trying to decide the best pose to show off an item. The new No Filter Outfit from Cynful is one of those outfits that looks amazing from all sides and the newest hair from Stealthic, Metropolis, is no different. I hope you all have plenty of lindens on hand, because I see some very pretty things that are just dying to be part of your teensy lil ole inventory. *giggles* If you read my blog, you’re a shopaholic like me and I know damn well you’re inventory isn’t teensy. I need to clean my up before I get locked out of sl for my inventory being too damn big. LOL Oh and y’all know I couldn’t write so little without adding at least SOME lyrics, right? Cuz music is life!!
A heart will swell before it’s hardened With the flick of the hair, it can make you old Another hole to dig my soul in I’ll leave anything bare that keeps me soul
I’d say its fairly obvious that I’m not into anime or even Asian culture. Though, I do love some Asian cuisine! So, the first time I saw or even heard of a kitsune was in Second Life. Even then, I wasn’t all that interested. I just assumed it was a cute creature from Anime. I was like, “Kitsune…huh?” Eventually, I looked it up! What I found surprised me.
Kitsune in the literal sense is the Japanese word for fox. Foxes are a common subject of Japanese folklore; in English, kitsune refers to them in this context. Stories depict legendary foxes as intelligent beings and as possessing paranormal abilities that increase as they get older and wiser. –Wikipedia
If you keep reading the Wiki page about it, you’ll discover that the more tails it’s more powerful, older, and wiser. So, as you can see by just the little bit of information on the Wiki page, kitsune isn’t an anime thing after all. They are part of Japanese folklore more so than anime. Now, I just feel stupid for always assuming that’s what they were. Just a gentle reminder to do a little research before we go running off at the mouth about things we don’t really know about.
There was a time when I was alone No where to go and no place to call home My only friend was the man in the moon And even sometimes he would go away too Then one night, as I closed my eyes I saw a shadow flying high He came to me with the sweetest smile Told me he wanted to talk for a while
Hit the ground Hit the ground running It’s a one way street With an open end And you never know What lies ahead But I always knew That this was it The signs were lit Oh I always knew I’m gonna hit the ground running Hit the ground running Only waiting for the marching drums I’ll be ready when the morning comes I’m gonna hit the ground running Hit the ground running Only waiting for the marching drums I’ll be ready when the morning comes I’m an overdrive Go to play offense And I won’t look back There be no regrets
I’ve been havin’ dreams Jumpin’ on a trampoline Flippin’ in the air I never land, just float there As I’m looking up Suddenly the sky erupts Flames alight the trees Spread to fallin’ leaves Now they’re right upon me Wait if I’m on fire How am I so deep in love? When I dream of dying I never feel so loved I’ve been having dreams Splashin’ in a summer stream Trip and I fall in I wanted it to happen My body turns to ice Crushin’ weight of paradise Solid block of gold Lying in the cold I feel right at home
