Neon lights glisten off the streets The moonlight swallowed up by breathing electricity Salvation hovers in the sky Dream of a life inside while we escape just to survive Let go, take flight Dreams begin to reignite So clear, so bright We’re glowing in the dead of night Plug in, online The data stream linking our minds Circuits entwined We’ll dream of Neo-Tokyo tonight We’re made of flesh, circuit and bone The only world we’ve known, these empty streets we walk alone Salvation blocking out the Sun Beneath its shadow cast I dream with my Aphelion
I’d say its fairly obvious that I’m not into anime or even Asian culture. Though, I do love some Asian cuisine! So, the first time I saw or even heard of a kitsune was in Second Life. Even then, I wasn’t all that interested. I just assumed it was a cute creature from Anime. I was like, “Kitsune…huh?” Eventually, I looked it up! What I found surprised me.
Kitsune in the literal sense is the Japanese word for fox. Foxes are a common subject of Japanese folklore; in English, kitsune refers to them in this context. Stories depict legendary foxes as intelligent beings and as possessing paranormal abilities that increase as they get older and wiser. –Wikipedia
If you keep reading the Wiki page about it, you’ll discover that the more tails it’s more powerful, older, and wiser. So, as you can see by just the little bit of information on the Wiki page, kitsune isn’t an anime thing after all. They are part of Japanese folklore more so than anime. Now, I just feel stupid for always assuming that’s what they were. Just a gentle reminder to do a little research before we go running off at the mouth about things we don’t really know about.
I never should have called ‘Cause I knew you’d leave me But I didn’t think you could do it so easily I never should have held your hand On that cold rainy night ‘Cause, further along, it would cause another fight Stranger, that’s all I see When I look into your eyes A soulmate who wasn’t meant to be Stranger, who knows all my secrets Can pull me apart and break my heart A soulmate who wasn’t meant to be
So, this picture took me on a wild ride. I knew as soon as I saw this big beautiful beast what kind of photo I wanted to take. I knew exactly where. What I didn’t know was what song I’d put with it or what I would write about. I could write about how beautiful the sim is at Burrow Co. I could write about how awesome the pets at Rezz Room are, but I feel like I’ve done both of those things in the past. After taking the picture, I was thinking, “Isn’t there a song about a dog day afternoon?” So, off to YouTube, I went. What I discovered is that no, its not a song, its a movie! It’s an Al Pacino movie! AND I’ve never seen it! Then I realized how old the movie was and took a moment to mourn my youth. That movie is almost 50yrs old. *sighs* Turns out, its based on a true story, too. My afternoon was quickly filled with Al Pacino and learning about the true story. The movie was really good, of course. However, that movie has absolutely nothing to do with my photo. So, here we have it…another post with no song. *gasps* I know, y’all gonna have to start reading again if this continues! *laughs* p.s. I added a trailer link for you, in case you wanted to know about the movie.

This post is all about Bloom by Prism Events. I have been blogging for Prism Events…well, for years. I absolutely love the three events they put on throughout the years. Bloom is all about Spring and this year, with Easter around the corner, we’ve got an abundance of cute Easter themed items, as well. Don’t get too overwhelmed thinking that these items will only work for Spring, though. As you can see by the photo, I’ve created a summer theme using the gorgeous house from Concept that you can acquire at the Arcade. If you want to see more of the house, I did two posts about it earlier this month. You can see those here and here. I grabbed this hair weeks ago during a Fifty Linden Friday and then yesterday Cynful released silky textures on their Buttoned Tube Top. Knowing Cyn, it’s probably still out so hurry! The rest just kinda fell into place as I was looking around at the different items I’d collected from Bloom. All in all, I’m really pleased with how my photo turned out. I hope it will inspire you to create some wonderful Spring & Summer spots of your own, or at least a cute outfit…cuz these shorts…*bites her lip*…they are sooo cute!!!!

“And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.” ― F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby
I’m up all night online I’m looking up my symptoms Tell myself I’m fine But my system just ain’t listenin’ Like ooh This ain’t normal how I’m feelin’, no Ooh Running higher than a fever When my palms start to sweat I feel it in my stomach This is how I get Every time I know you’re comin’ over Ooh Sometimes I think that I might die with you Ooh It’s like I’m almost too alive with you Ahhh Ooh ohh ooh Oh, it feels like My heart’s gonna beat so fast, gonna beat so fast Gonna beat so fast that it might stop
I heard from a friend of a friend That you’ve been checking back in ‘Cause I said goodbye, moved overnight And you haven’t heard much since then Wondering how I’m doing now It’s none of your business first of all Wondering how I’m doing now But if you’ve got to know, well sure Well sure You think I’d be lost Think I’d be lost without you, lost Is it hard knowing you’re wrong See I got lots without you Lots without you

I couldn’t sleep last night You were chasing the birds ’till the beast caught your eye I couldn’t sleep last night How you look like an angel It’s burnt in my mind I can’t feel anything the morning after you I can’t tell anyone the morning after you And I hope you sleep with a merry gold I hope you win it this time And I pray you don’t fear the animals I’ll save you, I promise this time
