Warm On A Cold Night

I promise I’m trying to get back to actually writing wit my blogs, because its what I do. I’m just going through a hard time right now. I’ll be alright. I know that, but for now I am still hurting too much to talk about it.

Honne – Warm On A Cold Night

Like a rabbit in headlights
They’re stunned by all your charm
And I feel so damn lucky
To have you on my arm
And I can’t help but wonder
How we ended up alright
And I love you like no other
‘Cause this has never felt so right
Yeah you can keep me warm on a cold night
Warm on a cold cold night
Yeah you can keep me warm on a cold night
Warm on a cold cold night
I want to treat you something special
Give you what you deserve
I want to take you to paradise
In a 1950’s Merc
And I can’t help but wonder
Just how we ended up alright
And I love you like no other
And this has never felt so right
You can keep me warm on a cold night
Warm on a cold cold night
You can keep me warm on a cold night
Warm on a cold cold night
Girl you can keep me warm
You can keep me real warm
There’s just one thing
Girl you could have anyone
So why you choosing me and not leaving me on my own
Girl you could be with anyone
So thanks for making me your number one
You can keep me warm on a cold night
Warm on a cold cold night
Yeah you can keep me warm on a cold night
Warm on a cold cold night
Yeah wrap me up and keep warm on a cold night
Warm on a cold cold night
Oh yeah you can keep me warm on a cold night
Warm on a cold cold night

Desire (NSFW)

This is my first post using two items from Bound Box. This is the first one, so they’ve been very generous by sharing photos and letting us blog it early so you can get a true taste of things to come. I thought about writing something really dirty and personal, but I chose to share one of the sexiest songs I know, that says it all. *grins* Enjoy the song and for the love of all things kinky…you really want to grab the Bound Box before the 12th, because this is the yummiest box to hit the grid. *purrs*

Meg Meyers Desire

Baby, I’ll learn to touch you
I wanna breathe into your well
See, I gotta to hunt you
I gotta to bring you to my hell
Baby, I wanna fuck you,
I WANNA FEEL YOU IN MY BONES
Boy, I’m gonna love YOU
I’M GONNA TEAR INTO YOUR SOUL

DESIRE, I’m hungry
I hope you feed me
how do you want me, how do you want me?
how do you want me, how do you want me?
how do you want me, how do you want me?
how do you want me, how do you want me?

Honey, I wanna break you
I wanna throw you to the hounds,
I gotta hurt you, I gotta hear from your mouth
Boy, I wanna taste you, I wanna skin you with my tongue
I’m gonna kill you,
I’M GONNA LAY YOU IN THE GROUND

DESIRE, I’m hungry
I hope you feed me
how do you want me, how do you want me?
how do you want me, how do you want me?
how do you want me, how do you want me?
how do you want me, how do you want me?

I wanna feel YOU, I want it ALL
I wanna feel YOU, I want it ALL

how do you want me, how do you want me?
how do you want me, how do you want me?
how do you want me, how do you want me?
how do you want me, how do you want me?

Gacha, Gatcha, Gotcha!

I have no idea who originated the quote or if I even have it right…or even close, but I’ve said it for years never believing for one second that I was being original, “Opinions are like assholes. Everyone has one, but everyone doesn’t want to hear yours.”
gotcha

I’ve been on the grid for almost ten years now and I’ve witnessed a great deal of change. Not just from base prims to flexi to sculpts to mesh, but photography and marketing, too. I’m not claiming to be an expert on all things Second Life. I’m far too easily distracted by occurrences in my own small world. However, I have had the pleasure of once upon a time owning a store, a club, and various jobs along the way. From customer service to management, I’ve tried my hand at quite a few things. This isn’t even my first attempt at blogging. One of the biggest changes I’ve seen is the approach to marketing.
Hunts don’t seem to be as big of a deal as they once were, as a lot of designers just didn’t put as much effort into the hunt prizes and fewer people wanted to participate for that reason.
I remember when Gachas first showed up and I thought they were such a cute novel idea. They quickly became an addiction and even a way of life for some. It took me a while, but I think I’ve finally gotten my personal relationship with these vexing little machines under control. The irony is in the name…although I’m not even sure what is the correct spelling anymore.
A few years ago, I took a year long break from the grid and upon my return Events were all the rage. I’m not sure when they started exactly or which ones were even first, but they’ve certainly become the most common method of shopping now. More focus is placed on events these days than actual brands and some designers don’t even seem to have an actual store, but can be found in all the big events.
Now the newest trend seems to be the monthly boxes containing exclusive content. You pay L$XXXX each month and receive a box of merchandise that will surpass the value, containing exclusive items.
Another trend, that I first noticed happening with Gacha projects, is the colloboration efforts between designers.

Now, these are all amazing and fantastic ideas and I love all watching the innovation. I love all the excitement over new and shiny things being delivered in new and shiny ways! I know a lot of people out there aren’t happy about the monthly boxes. There are people out there that are even anti-gacha…I know, can you imagine? Well, here’s the good news!  No one is forcing anyone to participate in ANY of these events. Period.  No one forces anyone to participate in  Second Life and no one is forcing anyone to shop. So, unless a designer is being unethical, I just don’t believe we should be lashing out at them on social media, which seems to be a trend of its own these days. Plus, it kinda just makes you look childish, mean, and bitter…so put on your big boy/girl panties and try to be enough of an adult to warrant having a social media page in the first place, will ya?
gatcha

I will continue to enjoy my Luxe Box, my gachas, and anything else on the grid that I see fit…judge me if you want, but you have to admit…I look FABULOUS! ♥

Where Will the Road Take You?

I believe that all roads lead to the same place – and that is wherever all roads lead to. Willie Nelson

where will you go
I grabbed a Willie quote because the man knows about traveling. Plus, he’s a stoner. *smirks*
I’ve talked about exploring in Second Life quite a bit lately, because I’ve been forcing myself out of my comfort zone and out onto the grid. Well, last night this place came to me. I got an IM from my dear friend, Tally, asking me to come see the sim, Venta Silurum, that he and his girlfriend, Kiana, have designed.  This is after my friends Rom and Tracy had raved about it already. I was super excited and couldn’t wait to see it. Upon landing I was set loose to explore on my own accord. Can you believe no tour? They just let me wander off and find my own trouble. *winks*
Okay, I didn’t find trouble for a while, but if you look in this picture you’ll see a road and a big bridge…just across that bridge is a….No, ya know what? Go see for yourself…Where will the road take you? And don’t be afraid to wander off the beaten path. There are some beautiful surprises waiting for you.
This sim is definitely different from others I’ve seen recently. After exploring and hanging out a bit, I knew exactly what type of shot I wanted. Off I went to hit a few events before heading back for my picture. Check out all details below…
