Kind Strangers

If your car has to break down in the middle of nowhere it never hurts to have a sexy mechanic working on your car.

On a more serious note, never let it be said that there are not some perfectly kind strangers in SL willing to help out another stranger for a few minutes. I had originally gone to this sim, thinking that I would take a photo in a diner or something along those lines. Then I say the classic mustang and a very nice looking avatar posed as if he were working on it. Sadly, his entire profile was in Portuguese, so to Google translator I went. One thing was certain, he was happily taken and didn’t like girls who disrespected that. Noted. In English (he can translate, too, right) I told him that I wasn’t flirting but would he mind staying put for a blog photo I wanted to do. He kindly obliged and the moment I was done, he poofed away. No friendships made, no advances from either of us, no more conversation….just two photographers passing in the light. *giggles*

So, I owe a huge thank you to  Hendrick Kos (SirAatrox) for being so kind to a complete stranger. It’s people like him that restore just a teensy bit of my faith in human kind.

can you fix it

Bad Girls

Alright, yes, its another post with a song and lyrics, but these really do kinda go together…at least in my head. This is one of the few times I wish I had video making skills, cuz I’d love to try to do something bigger with this song. Either way, I love the song…hope you do, too. If not, watch the video with the sound off, cuz there’s some kickass car tricks going on.

M.I.A. -Bad Girls

Live fast, die young
Bad girls do it well
Live fast, die young
Bad girls do it well
My chain hits my chest
When I’m bangin’ on the dashboard
My chain hits my chest
When I’m bangin’ on the radio
Get back, get down
Pull me closer if you think you can hang
Hands up, hands tied
Don’t go screaming if I blow you with a bang
Suki Zuki
I’m coming in the Cherokee
Gasoline
There’s steam on the window screen
Take it, take it
World’s bouncing like a trampoline
When I get to where I’m going, gonna have you trembling
Live fast, die young
Bad girls do it well
Live fast, die young
Bad girls do it well
My chain hits my chest
When I’m banging on the dashboard
My chain hits my chest
When I’m banging on the radio
Yeah back it, back it
Yeah pull up to the bumper game
Yeah with a signal
Cover me, cause I’m changing lanes
Had a handle on it
My life, I broke it
When I get to where I’m going, gonna have you saying it
Live fast, die young
Bad girls do it well
Live fast, die young
Bad girls do it well
My chain hits my chest
When I’m banging on the dashboard
My chain hits my chest
When I’m banging on the radio
Get back, get down
Pull me closer if you think you can hang
Hands up, hands tied
Don’t go screaming if I blow you with a bang
Going nought to bitch, I’ll see four million
Accelerating fast I can do this in a second
Lookin’ in the rear view, swaggin’ goin’ swell
Leavin’ boys behind ’cause it’s legal just to kill
Shift gear, automatic, damned if I do
Who’s gonna stop me when I’m coming through?
What we got left is just me and you
But if I go to bed, baby, can I take you?
Get back, get down
Pull me closer if you think you can hang
Hands up, hands tied
Don’t go screaming if I blow you with a bang
Live fast, die young
Bad girls do it well
Live fast, die young…
Chain hits my chest
When I’m bangin’ on the dashboard
My chain hits my chest
When I’m bangin’ on the radio
Chain hits my chest
When I’m bangin’ on the dashboard
My chain hits my chest
When I’m bangin’

Heartlines

I just don’t have the words. Seems to be happening to me a lot, perhaps I should stop bothering. I can easily find a quote for my photos and just offer links. Seems to be how most people blog. *shrugs* I woke up feeling weird and I can’t explain it.

Broods ~ Heartlines

We could fool the datelines
We could jump the statelines
I don’t wanna always play nice
But I wanna feel your heartlines
I wanna feel your heart
Have you been let down by the ones before?
Do you leave too soon to know?
Never fell in love ’cause I just cut loose
But not when it comes to you
Dressing in black, you’re around for the weekend
Dancing at night, you’re the light that I won’t let go
And I want you close
We could fool the datelines
We could jump the statelines
I don’t wanna always play nice
But I wanna feel your heartlines
I’ll pick you up at midnight
We’ll run to beat the sunlight
We only get the one life
And I wanna feel your heartlines
I wanna feel your heart
Now we’re far apart, in and out of touch
And the words don’t mean as much
So I sit across from someone new
But they don’t compare to you
Lying in bed wide awake, I remember
Dancing at night, you’re the light that I won’t let go
And I want you close
We could fool the datelines
We could jump the statelines
I don’t wanna always play nice
But I wanna feel your heartlines
I’ll pick you up at midnight
We’ll run to beat the sunlight
We only get the one life
And I wanna feel your heartlines
I wanna feel your heartlines
Lying in bed wide awake, I remember
I feel
Dressing in black, you were here for the weekend
And I won’t let go
‘Cause I want you close
We could fool the datelines
We could jump the statelines
I don’t wanna always play nice
But I wanna feel your heartlines
I’ll pick you up at midnight
We’ll run to beat the sunlight
We only get the one life
And I wanna feel your heartlines
We could fool the datelines
We could jump the statelines
I don’t wanna always play nice
But I wanna feel your heartlines
I wanna feel your heartlines
I wanna feel your heartlines
I wanna feel your heart

Walk on Water

If I’m not allowed to give up on my life, because of how bad things are, then I cannot give up on my country either. Many times over the years, I’ve thought to myself that I no longer love America, because there is so much hate. However, the song/video I’m sharing with this post really made me think. I can’t speak for other countries, but just maybe you can find some pride for your own within this song/video. I don’t think most of us are all that different. So, with Independence Day just around the corner, I’ve decided to stand by the U.S.A. and never give up the hope that we will overcome these adverse times. We are not a perfect country, we never will be, and while I don’t think its all that great right now…it has been and will be again someday. It’s up to us whether we allow adversity and diversity to make us come together or stand apart. I choose to stand proudly amidst all the diversity and proudly claim myself an American.

Thirty Seconds to Mars-Walk on Water

Oh oh, oh oh
Oh oh, oh oh
Oh oh, oh oh (do you believe?) walk on water
Oh oh, oh oh
Can you even see what you’re fighting for?
Bloodlust and a holy war
Listen up, hear the patriots shout
“Times are changing”
In the end, the choice was clear
Take a shot in the face of fear
Fist up in the fiery light
Times are changing
Oh oh, oh oh
Do you believe that you can walk on water?
Oh oh, oh oh
Do you believe that you can win this fight tonight?
(Do you believe?)
Look at the sky, see a dying star
White lies, it’s a man on fire
Making love with the devil hurts
Times are changing
A thin line, the whole truth
The far right, the left view
Breaking all those promises made
Times are changing
Oh oh, oh oh
Do you believe that you can walk on water?
Oh oh, oh oh
Do you believe that you can win this fight tonight?
Oh oh, oh oh
Do you believe that you can walk on water?
Oh oh, oh oh
Do you believe that you can win this fight tonight?
Do you believe? Walk on water
Do you believe? Walk on water
Do you believe? Walk on water
Do you believe? Walk on water
Do you believe? Walk on water
Do you believe? Walk on water
Do you believe? Walk on water
Do you believe? Walk on water
Oh oh, oh oh
Do you believe that you can walk on water?
Oh oh, oh oh
Do you believe that you can win this fight tonight?
Oh oh, oh oh (do you believe? Walk on water)
Do you believe that you can walk on water?
Oh oh, oh oh (do you believe? Walk on water)
Do you believe that you can win this fight tonight?
Oh oh, oh oh (do you believe?)

Oh Lord

Now y’all know I’m not about to write anything for this picture…so I’ll let ITM do the talking for me…or rather the singing…*grins*…besides…as you can see, I’m busy.

In This Moment – In This Moment

Oh Lord won’t you save me
Save me from myself
Oh Lord won’t you forgive me
For I have lost control
Oh Lord won’t you tell me
Am I the righteous or the damned?
Oh Lord won’t you please hear me
Do I obey or do I command?
Oh oh (Exorcise the demon)
Oh oh (Exorcise the demon)
Oh oh (Exorcise the demon)
Oh oh (Save my soul)
Oh Lord can’t you save me from my twisted little mind
Oh Lord won’t you please show me how to turn the water to wine
Oh Lord won’t show me
Am I the sinner or the saint
Oh Lord won’t you please tell me was all my suffering in vain
Oh oh (catch the devil, why)
Oh oh (catch the devil, why)
Oh oh (catch the devil, why)
Oh oh (catch the devil, why)
Oh God have mercy on me
Oh God have mercy on me
Hold me down under holy water
I fear I been laying with the devil
I been laying with the devil
I been laying with the devil
I been laying with the devil
Oh Lord please forgive me for what I’m about to do
Oh Lord won’t you believe me I burn in hell for you
Oh Lord won’t you teach me
Teach me how to see
Oh Lord tell me you love me
Am I Lillith or am I Eve
Oh God have mercy on me
Oh God have mercy on me
Hold me down under holy water
I fear I been laying with the devil
I been laying with the devil (save my soul)
Oh oh
Oh oh
Oh oh
Oh oh God have mercy on me
Oh God have mercy on me
Hold me down under holy water
I fear I been laying with the devil
I been laying with the devil
Hold me down under holy water
I fear I been laying with the devil

Baggage

We all have some sort of emotional baggage. Some are lucky enough to travel light. Some of us have to rent out a storage room to keep up with everything that happens to us. The thing is we definitely need to put it somewhere, otherwise we’re dragging it all around with us all the time and it just weighs us down. We don’t need to carry it around displaying it with pride like, “Oh look at me, I was abused as a kid!” We must learn how to deal with it and once we do, we need to pack it neatly away so that when we revisit it, or these metaphorical boxes in our imaginary closets/storage rooms come crashing down, we can deal with it accordingly. Yes, occasionally it will happen that one or more of those boxes might fall open, but just like photographs in a shoe-box, we need to learn to sift through those memories and realize how far we’ve come. Then shove that crap right back in the box and possibly find a more secure place for it. Then lock it up and guard the key, only offering to open it up and share with people we’ve learned to trust. People we know won’t turn around and use the things they discover like weapons against us down the line.
Maybe I’m waxing too philosophical this morning. Maybe none of that made sense to anyone, but me. Then I again, my blog is my therapy…so what do you expect? *chuckles*

Oh Me, Oh My

Music amazes me the way it crawls into your head, as if the writers of the songs I love have read my mind like a book. It astounds me the way I relate to so many lyrics, even the rhythm will lure me in hypnotizing me to digest the words that have been plucked from me to dance with the magic of a melody. The best of all is that the lyrics are literally poetry  in motion, because read alone without the music, they stand just as strong and powerful as they do when traveling the path of the instruments that make them into songs.

Imogen Heap ~ Oh Me, Oh My

Quiet now in sleepy dreams
To me it seems the only time to be
Just me
Bombarded by the phone, in my own home
Can’t get the space that I need
And how I need it, yeah
Oh me, yeah, oh my
Oh me, me, me, me oh my
Oh when I look
When I look at my life
Oh me, oh my
When I look at my life, yeah, la la la
Crowded by the city, all around me
Need some silence from the loud
And noisy crowds
And I’m trying to catch a breath
Through the air of death
Can’t see the sun for the clouds
Those dirty clouds
And the night has no compassion
For your actions
When you’re trying to get away
From the hard day, yeah
And I need someone to talk to
Apart from you
But I guess that’s just the way
Come what may, oh
Oh me, yeah, oh my
Oh me, me, me, me oh my
Oh when I look
When I look at my life
Oh me, oh my
When I look at my life
Oh God
Are you there
Are you there
Are you there
No, no, yeah
God
Are you there
Are you there
Are you there
Yeah
Well are you out there
Are you there
Are you there
Are you there
If so where are you hiding?
I’m having trouble finding you
Oh me, and oh my
Oh me, me, me, me oh my
Oh when I look
When I look at my life
Oh me, oh my
When I look at my life
Oh God
Are you there
Are you there
Are you there
No, no, yeah
God
Are you there
Are you there
Are you there
No
Well are you out there
Are you there
Are you out there yeah yeah
Are you out there yeah yeah
Are you out there
Are you out there
Are you out there

New Shoes

There’s just something about a new pair of shoes that will light up your day, provided they fit right and don’t hurt your feet. Luckily, in SL, that is never an issue. Matching them up with a new outfit is even better. Again, in SL, this is one of the simply joys you can’t always enjoy in the real world. There’s just a pep in your step that wasn’t there before.

Cursed

The lyrics of this song pretty much say it all. So, I’m just gonna let Jacob Lee explain it his way, but I will give you the lyrics this time. *smiles* So, right below are the lyrics and the video is beneath the details of this incredible scene that CandyDoll has created for Epiphany. There are a few more pieces and I’ve added a few from other places, but the over all feel of this scene wouldn’t be possible without the major components from CandyDoll’s Dolly Room Gacha.

Jacob Lee – Cursed

They tell me, it’s all in my mind
They don’t know, they’re yet to try
My thoughts are safer inside
I pray it hurts less this time
They tell me, it’s all in my head
They don’t know they have to check
What lies within is a mess
This pill could fix it, I guess

Don’t say, it’s all in my brain
‘Cause I can’t help being this way
I feel the changes they’ve made
Now I don’t feel the same
Leave my secrets alone
They aren’t for you to know
I hear the knock at my door
As they take me far from my home
They say, “It’s better this way”
But the voices, they tell me I’m sane
They think they’re cleansing my veins
As they hook me up in this place

They say it starts in my skull
Makes its way down through my blood
It’s been with me since I was young
But they can’t explain what it’s from
I think that I’ve had enough
I don’t know who I can trust
Leave my secrets alone
They aren’t for you to know
I hear the knock at my door
As they take me far from my home
They say, “It’s better this way”
But the voices, they tell me I’m sane
They think they’re cleansing my veins
As they hook me up in this place
Leave my secrets alone
They aren’t for you to know
I hear the knock at my door
As they make me vacate my bones
