Hot Damn

Well, its another music post, cuz I’m pressed for time and crazy busy again this week. So many changes going on in my life that I had to take a whole day away from the computer just to give my brain time to stop spinning. So, along with this fun photo, I’ve included great fun song I recently discovered. I hope you’ll enjoy them both. I promise I’ll be back to writing some sort of rhetoric soon. *winks*

Ivy Levan – Hot Damn

I’ve got that real good good and you know it don’t come cheap.
A pretty penny, a pretty penny, a pretty penny, you like what you see.
You wanted real bad bad but you still, you still want more (you still want more)
Looking at me, looking at me and baby knocking down my door.
Ooh ooh
Hot damn, these fools try to stick me for my paper
Damn these fools won’t leave me alone
Hot damn, these fools try to stick me for my paper
Damn these fools won’t leave me alone from New York to L.A.
And every single day I said hot damn
These fools try to stick me for my paper
Damn these fools won’t leave me, leave me alone.
Hey, you follow me like dogs, and I can’t can’t get no sleep
A pretty penny, a pretty penny, a pretty penny, you just want a piece
‘Cause I got that real good good and you just keep wanting more
Looking at me, looking at me, what the hell are you looking for?
Ooh ooh
Hot damn, these fools try to stick me for my paper
Damn these fools won’t leave me alone
Hot damn, these fools try to stick me for my paper
Damn these fools won’t leave me alone from New York to LA
And every single day I said hot damn
These fools try to stick me for my paper
Damn these fools won’t leave me, leave me alone.
Who turned the temperature up?
It’s hot enough to cook an egg in a frying pan
Don’t you turn that temperature up
Oh it’s hot enough to make me crazy like the son of Sam
Hot damn, who turned that temperature up?
It’s hot enough to cook an egg in a frying pan
Don’t you turn that temperature up
Oh it’s hot enough to make me crazy like the son of Sam
Hot damn, these fools try to stick me for my paper
Damn these fools won’t leave me alone
Hot damn, these fools try to stick me for my paper
Damn these fools won’t leave me alone from New York to L.A.
And every single day I said hot damn
These fools try to stick me for my paper
Damn these fools won’t leave me, leave me alone.

Tea Party? Nah! Let’s drink wine!

“Welcome to the Tea Party
Want to be my VIP?
You didn’t RSVP
That’s ok, that’s ok
Welcome to the Tea Party (oh oh, oh oh)
Want to be my VIP?”
~Kerli “Tea Party

Ok, so when I first saw the Garden Soiree Set by unKindness at Collabor88, I immediately had the above mentioned song in my head. I knew I had to have a little gathering of my roommates for a photo. Anyone that knows my crew, knows that we’re not exactly tea drinkers…so it had to be a wine party, right? Well, imagine getting five very creative and strong personalities together, suggesting a theme and giving them some freedom to express themselves…yeah, madness ensued.

tea eh wine partyI am very fortunate that they let me believe I had any sense of control while shooting these photos or that I had any influence at all over their outfits. I said, “Go for it…be bizarre…be creative.” I should have known that Rom would show up in his favorite boots. Tracy, of course, shows up in as little as possible. Afterall, “Tracy’s flickr” is our favorite answer to all Cards Against Humanity questions (try it, it works). When I told them to hop on the pose stands I had filled with poses from Del May, Grace immediately asked if she could be passed out on the table. It only seemed natural that she would be, so I had to say yes. I knew the minute I saw the dress from sYs that I’d be wearing it for the party and when Sino saw it, he quickly put together his own stunning look.
tea party
Being surrounded by friends this way was amazing and I’m not sure I can even begin to explain the conversations we had while I shot these photos, but I can’t recommend the experience enough. I know we all gather at clubs and dance to our favorite DJs. That is so much fun in its own right, but please if you’ve never done it…have a party at home with your closest friends. Ask them to dress in theme and break out the cameras, because THIS?
Yeah, in almost 10 years on the grid, these types of little parties have always been my favorite. We might not have been genuinely drunk in real life, but we sure were high on life and I’m so grateful that I was able to catch this madness on virtual film. Even when things went a bit haywire with my poses stands, the fun continued.
tea party madness
The Garden Soiree Set inspires the oncoming of fall and it just so happens that its mine and Tracy’s favorite season…no, that has nothing to do with the fact that both our birthdays are in October…pssshaw! Its the time of pumpkins, caramel apples, cinnamon candles, hot cocoa…ok, lots of apple things…Halloween…falling leaves…all sorts of good stuffs! So, we got a little excited…and its really a very lovely set, despite the madness represented here.

White Rabbit

White Rabbit: Don’t just do something, stand there… Uh… no no! Go go! Go get my gloves! I’m late!

Growing up an only child, a blond haired blue eyed child, I was often compared to Alice. My mother even attempted to tie ribbons in my hair. The ribbons never lasted long and I never related to Alice as much as I related to the scatter brained, hectic rabbit who was always misplacing things and running a bit behind. You see, much like the white rabbit, I have suffered from anxiety my entire life. I constantly worried about being late, offending people, and disappointing them. I still do. I often bite off more than I can chew and my good intentions often lead me right into a hole that I cannot begin to climb out.

I remember my father gave me my first watch in the third grade. I had just turned eight years old when he decided I was ready to learn how to tell time and appreciate its value. From that day forward, anytime I was late, I had no excuse and was severely punished anytime I wasted an adult’s time. This created a lovely cycle of anxiety that only worsened as I grew up. To this day, I struggle with anxiety, but the older I get the less I worry about disappointing people. You see, I realized that its unavoidable. One cannot go through their entire life without disappointing someone, nor can we go through life without being disappointed. So, today I will do my best not to fear the worst.

Everywhere I Look

“Imagination is the true magic carpet.” ~ Norman Vincent Peale

Isn’t that true? Especially in a virtual world like Second Life where we’re not only allowed but encouraged to push beyond the boundaries of our own imaginations. I’m continuously amazed by all the beauty I encounter in this virtual world. From beautiful clothing, to furnishings and decor…and best of all, the places people build to share with the rest of us. Whether is an RP sim, a game experience like the ones from MadPea, clubs, homes, or places designed specifically for exploring.

Lately, I’ve taken that same awe in wonder that I find myself with in a virtual world and looking at the real world in similar ways. It really is an incredible world we live in, whether looking at nature, man-made structures, or even destruction…there is beauty and awe to be found at every turn if we simply open our minds and take a good look.

While that really has very little, okay, nothing to do with my look here…I will say that I took these pictures on the stage area of a new club called Dante’s Inferno. I love this little place. Its beautifully decorated and the owners have been genuinely welcoming…that’s been my experience anyway. I encourage you all to open your eyes in both worlds and look with your heart at all the wonders surrounding us. ❤

Live or Die

“Live or die,” she says as she dropped the transplanted hosta into its new home in her garden. The she carefully placed some cool from the shade rocks at its base and smiled, “I hope you like your new home.”

Taken out of context, I think my friend might come out sounding a bit careless. However, she actually loves plants and has this amazing green thumb. We had wine while sitting in her garden this afternoon and she made me realize that sometimes life is just that cut and dry. Live or die. It’s a choice we have to make. As I figure out how to live a new life, so shall that plant. Let’s hope that like me, it chooses to live.

*giggles* One really hosta make a choice eventually, don’t they? And I choose to live…in both lives. And in Second Life, I don’t need a green thumb to surround myself with beautiful hostas, because Artisan Fantasy has made the ones pictured below and they are gorgeous!
