The Edge

Its a music blog. Why? Because the world makes me sad and the lyrics to this song have really been weighing heavy on my mind lately. So, I’ll provide you with the link and this time, just a few of the lyrics. You can look up the rest if you feel so inclined. I don’t have a whole lot to say, because well, I just don’t. Shocking, I know, but even I run out of things to say sometimes.

Aerosmith Livin On the Edge

“If chicken little tells you that the sky is fallin’
Even if it wasn’t would you still come crawlin’
Back again
I bet you would my friend
Again and again and again and again and again”

Not THAT Song

“Not THAT song!” she ripped the headphones from her head. It had been such a good day until that song kicked on…this is what she gets for putting her library on random play while she got dressed. That song would always rip at her heart. That song would always bring tears to her eyes. That song would always make her remember…remember a day she wanted to forget.

I am Fragile

Its another “lyrics say it better than me” post. I suppose some might call it lazy, but music lovers will surely appreciate that sometimes a song written by someone else can often speak from your own heart. Well, its that kind of day for me.

Fragile by Kerli

You think you know me
And everything that you consider me
You think you know my name
You think you know me
And everything you get a chance to see
You think you know my face
You think you know my face

You think you see me
And everything that you consider me
You think I’m more than you
You think you see me
You like the way I’m strong and stand by you
But I am fragile too
I am fragile too

Yeah I will be fine
As the time goes by
It may hurt at nights
But I will be fine
Yeah I will be fine

They think they know me
And everything that they consider me
They think I never cry
They are thinking
While they’re making up their twisted lies
She won’t mind, she’s nice
She is cold as ice

You think you see me
and everything that you consider me
You think I’m more than you
You think you see me
You like the way I’m strong and stand by you
But I am fragile too
I am fragile too

I am fragile too
I am fragile too
Just like you

RBF

I’ve been dealing with RBF, Resting Bitch Face, all my life. I came by it genetically, that’s my excuse anyway. My mother always looked mad unless she was laughing or smiling, even then she had a tight lipped smile. She had dental issues that she was ashamed of. Honestly, I don’t think anyone would have noticed, because her laugh is adorable and her smile is radiant. But hey, we all have something we really hate about ourselves, right? My father was in the U. S. Army for 20 years, so again, very serious and stern face, unless smiling or laughing. Funny thing is I really wanted to have one of those pretty faces that could look at a camera all sultry like, but alas…I,, too, was cursed with RBF! No such luck! I quickly learned that if a camera came out, I had to show an expression or look pissed off. Mostly, I just avoid being in front of the camera in RL, just another thing I love about Second Life. I can do things here that I can never do in the real world. Like NOT having RBF if I don’t want to. *giggles* Then again, its easy enough to have one, too. *grins*

Cherry Bomb

“Hello, dad. Hello, mom.
I’m your ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb!
Hello world! I’m your wild girl.
I’m your ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb!”
The Runaways – Cherry Bomb

I don’t have the mindset to write anything especially deep or meaningful for this post. Oh sure, I thought of analogies about how life’s not a bowl of cherries. Instead, I just have a bunch of random stuff floating about my head as I think about cherries like how I just love cherries. I love cherry designs, cherry lips, and cherry flavored candy. I chose the song Cherry Bomb to quote from for a few reasons. I used Cherry Bomb as a display name for about a year a while back and loved it. I also loved the move about the band. Doing a bit of a retro look with cherries everywhere, it just seemed the natural thing to do.
As I sit here thinking about cherries, I’m reminded of the cherry eating scene from the movie Witches of Eastwick and how they made that one lady throw up cherry pits during church. Don’t yell at me about spoilers, either, cuz if you haven’t seen that movie by now…well…just shame on you. *laughs*
The outfit is from Pretty Mess and can be obtained at the current round of Collabor88, the subtle tattoo and adorable hair are currently at Vintage Fair. I just love how many gorgeous vintage designs can be found all across the grid at the moment. If you love dressing up and playing with the styles of yesteryears, there’s no better time to shop than now.

Bad Girl

Yeah, its a lyrics kinda post…make what you want of it. *smirks* I’ve been talking on some pretty deep subjects the last few days…so today…you get a song that gives you a peek into another side of me. *grins* Some of you might even already know this side of me. Somehow I doubt it will surprise anyone that doesn’t. So, enjoy and grab yourself some devious accessories…get out there and be BAD! <eg>

Bad Girl – Avril Lavigne (Suicide Squad) ft. Marilyn Manson

Just lay your head in daddy’s lap, you’re a bad girl

Bad girl (1-2-3-4)

Hey, hey
I’ll let you walk all over me, me
You know that I’m a little tease, tease
But I wanna play there please, please

You know you know you know I’m crazy
I just wanna be your baby
You can fuck me, you can play me
You can love and you can hate me

Miss me, miss me, now you wanna kiss me

[Chorus]
Choke me because I said so
Stroke me and feed my ego
I’ve been a bad girl, don’t you know?
(Don’t tell me what to do)
Come get it now or never
I’ll let you do whatever
I’ll be your bad girl, here we go
(1-2-3-4)

Miss me, miss me, now you wanna kiss me

(You’re a bad girl)

Baby,
You know I want a little taste, taste
So let me take you all the way, way
You know you’ll never be the same, same

(You fuckin’ bad girl!)

One night
You won’t forget the rest of your life
So come on over to the wild side
Buckle up and, baby, hold on tight

Miss me, miss me, now you wanna kiss me
We both know that you love me ’cause I’m so bad!

[Chorus]
Choke me because I said so
Stroke me and feed my ego
I’ve been a bad girl, don’t you know?
(Don’t tell me what to do)
Come get it now or never
I’ll let you do whatever
I’ll be your bad girl, here we go
(1-2-3-4)

I’ve been a bad girl [7x]
I’ve got your bad girl

[Chorus]
Choke me because I said so
Stroke me and feed my ego
I’ve been a bad girl, don’t you know?
(Don’t tell me what to do)
Come get it now or never
I’ll let you do whatever
I’ll be your bad girl, here we go
(1-2-3-4)

Bad bad bad girl

A Broken Phone Booth

“Am I alive or thoughts that drift away?
Does summer come for everyone?
Can humans do as prophets say?
And if I die before I learn to speak
Can money pay for all the days I lived awake
But half asleep?”
Primitive Radio Gods – Standing Outside A Broken Phone Booth With Money In My Hand

This is one of those songs that I’ve probably heard at least 100 times. I liked it a lot. The chorus is quite catchy with the lyrics like:
“I’ve been downhearted baby,
I’ve been downhearted baby,
Ever since the day we met”

and the “Do do do do do do”

However, it wasn’t until I looked up the actual lyrics that I was truly moved by the poetry of it. The melody is certainly hypnotic, but now I think its going to be one of my favorite songs all because I took the time to really read the lyrics in a stand alone manner, like poetry. Which, of course, is something I can truly appreciate as I used to write quite a bit of poetry and on occasion, I still do. I even have another blog for my poetry, that I’ve sadly neglected for a very long time.
I was talking to Josh about writing last night and of course, he’s very supportive and encouraging, but I simply don’t have the drive I once did for such things. My own poetic words have abandoned me, but alas I’m still full of cra…erhm…I mean plenty of random musings like this one.

telephone_005

Anyway, I’d like to wrap up this post with a moment of silence as I send positive thoughts, love & healing light to all of those in Manchester…what happened last night was an immense tragedy and while it breaks my heart that this has happened at all. The way the English people came together to assist one another somehow manages to restore just a little of my faith in humanity and the strength of communities.

I Can’t Sleep

“I can’t sleep, I hope I stay awake
Cause I’ve been running, running, running all day
Long nights, no peace, I feel like everybody’s eyes on me
I can’t sleep”
K.Flay – Can’t Sleep

Normally this is the story of my life, but I recently went to see the doctor. A new one for me and I love him. However, he’s got me on all these new meds and I’m sooo sleepy all the time. I’m not used to sleeping this much. I don’t have time for this kinda sleep! Turns out I have a deficiency of Vitamins B12 & D, too. Fun times, I have to go in everyday for a week for an injection of B12. I’m not surprised by the Vitamin D. Let’s see, in the real world I go outside and see the sun? I hiss. Literally. I do enjoy sunshine on rare occasions, but mostly I prefer dark rooms and dark nights.

Make It Happen

“Take your passion
And make it happen”
Irene Cara What A Feeling

Well, not without a few hiccups, but FaMESHed’s 5th Anniversary has kicked off. I have the honor and the privilege of being part of the FaMESHed team and this was my first event opening. WOW! The amount of work that goes into organizing an event and Elvi’s passion is contagious. I won’t go into details, but I can say there’s a great sense of pride and satisfaction to see it in full swing now. To hear people’s reactions to the special anniversary build, knowing how much work into just that aspect of the event.
Oddly enough, I had taken this picture over a week ago and knew I was going with a Flashdance quote. However, as the weekend got away from me between RL and SL…I find myself connecting the two….without really featuring anything from FaMESHed, but you can rest assured…there will be plenty coming in the days ahead.
