Under Moonlight

“I’ll be your friend in daylight. I’ll treat you as a comrade in every gas-lit ballroom. But alone, under moonlight, I’ll not pretend that I want you for anything but mine.”

Money, it’s a hit

When I did this photo I was thinking a sexy ass bank robber, cuz its a costume and its freaking cute. You should definitely check out this gacha from Reign. So many sexy but not slutty costumes just waiting for you. Of course, once I was done with the photo, I couldn’t help but think about a stripper and the whole making it rain thing. Instantly I was off and running to YouTube to find just the right song. First I found one from Cardi B that just made me roll my eyes. I have no clue how that woman became famous. To me she looks like a combination of Iggy Azalea and Nicki Minaj, but lacks the talent of either later. I don’t like her and I don’t get the hype. Needless to say, I kept looking and then there it was…Pink Floyd. I mean is there really anything sexier than a girl dancing to classic rock? I think NOT and since its MY blog, my opinion is the only one that matters here. *grins*

Money, get away
Get a good job with more pay and you’re O.K.
Money, it’s a gas
Grab that cash with both hands and make a stash
New car, caviar, four star daydream,
Think I’ll buy me a football team

Money, get back
I’m all right, Jack, keep your hands off of my stack.
Money, it’s a hit
Don’t give me that do goody good bullshit
I’m in the high-fidelity first-class traveling set
And I think I need a Learjet
~ Pink Floyd – Money

Just Asking

We hear about walking away from toxic people all the time, but its usually in reference to the obvious types of toxicity. People that are abusive mentally, emotionally, verbally, or physically are fairly obvious. We know that addicts in recovery can’t expect to stay clean if they’re hanging around with addicts that are actively using.  But what about those people that are doing everything within their power to better their lives and make wiser decisions? Don’t they also need to watch the company they keep so as not to fall back into the same pitfalls as before? I mean, a happily married man is probably going to spend far less time with his old bachelor buddies once he is married, right? And on the occasions that he does, he’s probably going to carefully choose activities that will not tempt him or put his marriage in danger. So, why is it that we’re expected to stick to people that continue to act out immaturely or destructively if we ourselves are trying to better our lives? I am not suggesting we cut these lovely people out of our lives completely or permanently. However, is it so wrong to distance yourself from people that are continuously acting irrationally, knowing they are being irrational, while we work on being more rational? What about the friends that choose to remain in sick relationships, complaining about the same abuse day in and day out? The friends that repeat the same cycles over and over again? How are we supposed to get better if we surround ourselves with sick thinking people? Just asking for a friend. *grins*

Uncomfortably Numb

If you are in Second Life and have any type of social media page associated with your avatar’s name, chances are that you’ve read about one designer stealing from another or just selling things illegally. A few months ago, I was crushed when I found out that one of my favorite home & garden stores had been uploading template meshes from external websites and passing them off as her own. I knew something had changed from earlier years, as her poses were no longer lined up. They were clearly tossed in haphazardly and little concern was given to customers that might actually put those animations to use. My immediate reaction was to delete every item in my inventory that I had ever purchased from her. I felt so betrayed. Not only because of all the money I’d spent with her, but because I had spoken with her on several occasions. Each and every time I spoke with her, I would tell her how much I admired her work. Turned out not to be her work at all. Now, in this particular case, she came forward, admitted her wrongs, and subsequently seemed to disappear from all events. Her store is still open, but its been redone completely. I haven’t bothered to check what’s left of her “designs,” because she lost my trust. I have literally spent hundreds of dollars in her store. I will never see that money again. That’s fine, but so far as I know, she won’t see another dime from me, either.
There have been multiple accusations against a popular hair & skin designer on the grid as well. However, in the past when DMCAs have been properly filed against a designer for theft, Linden Labs has been rather prompt in removing both the offending designer and his/her designs. Eventually, all the finger pointing died down and things seem to be going well for that designer. There seems to be no more finger pointing in that direction.
NOW we are being told that one popular hair designer has been stealing from another for over two years! I am mortified and stunned. Once again, I’ve spent hundreds of dollars in this store. I’m sitting here looking at the 70+ folders of hair I’ve purchased from the accused store and I’m left wondering, “Now what?”
I can’t be the only one sitting her uncomfortably numb to the whole designer theft situation wondering where to go from here. Am I obligated to delete all these hairs that I bought in good faith? I’d love to hear how others are dealing with issues like this.

Is This What I’ve Become?

Nothing Specific

It’s really easy to misunderstand what’s going on with other people, especially in a virtual world. So often the message depends on the perception of the reader and unless you’re adding a bit of an emote along with your words they can be easily misunderstood and thus the drama begins. What thing is for sure, there’s plenty of that happening across the grid. I think its one of the main reasons I like to voice. I don’t like my voice, but I do prefer talking to people when I can, because the inflections of one’s voice can really can make a world of difference. I realize I’m sorta rambling on about nothing specific here, but sometimes that’s just how my mind works.

Beyond Her Mask

“A charm invests a face
Imperfectly beheld,—
The lady dare not lift her veil
For fear it be dispelled.

But peers beyond her mesh,
And wishes, and denies,—
Lest interview annul a want
That image satisfies.”
― Emily Dickinson, The Complete Poems of Emily Dickinson

The Desert

I’ve always wanted to see the desert. I’ve seen some beautiful mountains, both in the U.S. and in Europe, but the desert…nope. Maybe one day before I die, but it’s doubtful. I don’t foresee my ass getting on a plane, that’s for damn sure. As for a road trip? Sure, it sounds like a blast, but to be fair, if I’m heading west in a car, I’m heading for Utah. Clearly, not for the site seeing, but that’s where one of my best friends lives and I’d rather see her than some long ass stretch of sand. Which is what I’ve been told the desert looks like by those that have lived there. They don’t seem to find it all that impressive at all. I suppose that’s like New Yorkers never going to the top of the Empire State building or the Statue of Liberty. Sometimes it takes an outsider to appreciate the things we so often take for granted.

Anyway, all this hacienda themed stuff really had me thinking about that…and well, there ya go…that’s how my blog works…lol.

Be Truly Free

“It is my goal to love everyone. I hate no one. Regardless of their race, religion, their proclivities, the desire of their heart and how they want to live their life and the decisions that they make. I can even respect people’s decisions and lifestyle choices just as I hope they have the courtesy to respect my decisions and my choices.” ~ Kirk Cameron
I never imagined that I would one day quote Kirk Cameron, of all people, but the day is upon us. What he says right here, is exactly how I feel, and I wish that everyone was more like this. Why does my lifestyle matter to people that don’t even know me? Why do my personal choices warrant an opinion from someone that has no real influence in my life? Do what works for you and stop worrying about everyone else. Stop trying to keep up with the Joneses and stop spreading toxic lies. Those things not only hurt the people directly involved, but hate is like a tornado that destroys everything in it’s path. Why would you want to do that to innocent people?  Let go of your judgments, release your misery, and be free…be truly free.

You wanna see if I bleed

Now who sings those blues”
