The Heavenly Spheres make music for us,

The Heavenly Spheres make music for us,

The Poetry of the Spheres are on display at LEA4 – a celebration of music and poetry in a pastoral setting with lovely ancient ruins. From the description of the sim:

Legend has it that the Ancient Gods of the Greeks have abandoned this realm, but evidence of their existence can be found above, in celestial spheres. These signs and symbols, both direct and abstract, are also reflected in Gustav Holst’s 1918 orchestral suite, The Planets, Op 32.

You can explore each of the seven movements, representing the corresponding planets, by teleporting from the Olympus Island up to that particular sphere:

Mars, the Bringer of War
Venus, the Bringer of Peace
Mercury, the Winged Messenger
Jupiter, the Bringer of Jollity
Saturn, the Bringer of Old Age
Uranus, the Magician
Neptune, the Mystic

There you will find a music link station for the appropriate movement – click on it to open a link to the music so you can play it on your browser while you explore. Most of the symphonic movements are less than 10 minutes long, and the symphony in entire is less than 45 minutes long.

What I Like #9

2017.0404 by Irukia Levee

2017.0404 by Irukia Levee

I like 2017.0404 by Iruki Levee. Her control of color caught my eye first.  There is the desaturated skin and background in shades of gray that make the bold reds, yellows, and blues pop. Then there is the beautiful free-form setting as though she is resting in a cloud, though clouds don’t show shadows (I’ve tried.) Then, the composition fully embraces the Fibonacci Spiral. It all comes together in an amazingly powerful photo.

This picture is illegal in Russia

Stop Homofobia meme banned in RussiaRussia recently banned this meme of Putin in makeup that many were using to advocate for gay rights. In recent years, while the LGTBIQ community in the United States have seen some victories while still facing challenges and efforts to roll back their rights, sexual minorities have been experiencing ever-increasing oppression in such disparate places as Uganda and Russia. This is not a coincidence. As the Christianists have lost ground in the United States, they have exported their anti-gay agenda.

This week, news came out about concentration camps in Chechnya–think about that. Russia has  passed legislation against gays, Uganda criminalized homosexuality and nearly passed a death penalty for homosexuality though we held off by pressure from Europe and the United States. Scott Lively is currently being sued for crimes against humanity for his role in advocating the repressive Ugandan actions, including advocating the death penalty for gays. He was also active in advocating for anti-gay legislation in Russia. National Organizations for Marriage president Brian Brown went to Russia to advocate a ban on gay adoptions and taking biological children away from gay parents. Brown is also trying to export his virulent anti-gay hatred to France, colluding with French far right political groups such as Dies Irae. Jack Hanick of FOX News is another anti-gay evangelist who has traveled to Russia to spread his homophobia, but also wants to import Russia’s authoritarianism to the US.

Stop Homofobia meme banned in RussiaSo what can we do now that our fellow Americans have traveled the globe to export their brand of hatred? We can support the organizations who fight them such as Sexual Minorities Uganda, the LGBTI Equal Rights Association for Western Balkans and Turkey, the Russian LGBT Network, or more generally, supporting the work of Human Rights Watch. You can do things like playing around with this image of Putin, mixing it up and making your own meme against homophobia. You can show support by making no place safe for the hate-mongers, not even fashion posts.  Continue reading

Behold the Hands

Behold the hands, how they promise, conjure, appeal...One of my favorite things about NYU is that they usually release as separates and the lovely camisole and lace skirt released at faMESHed are true to form. I love separates because it’s fun to mix and match. The pieces come with multiple colors selected by HUD.

Movie Night With A Very Old Friend

There are a handful of people in SL that’ve been around forever and my friend Eb is one of them. He came over to visit, and we gossiped about his new loves and what’s going on in his SL.

I gotta get some couches with friends hanging out poses because I was cycling through poses and they were all way too “I don’t like you like that” for us to chill and talk. It was amusing to chill and talk about other women though, in what looked like wildly romantic poses, but that’s just not us.

He’s my second oldest friend still on the grid and it was fun to chill with him. And now I’m all caught up on his romantic life!

Thanks for being a man model Eb 🙂

Poolside with Friends

I am notorious for wearing my lingerie as swimwear in SL and I truly have no plans to stop any time soon.  I took advantage of my new pool from Trompe Loeil to prove this yet again this morning. Continue reading

What I Like #8

wandering_world484

Wandering World 484 by Nekonuko.

I like Wandering World 484 by Nekonuko. The bottom of the windows fall exactly 2/5ths from the bottom, but the real magic in this picture is its impressionist painterly feeling created with an overlay that adds texture as well as making the lighting more complex and richer. The color story is beautiful, too, with the yellows to balance the blues.

Untitled

Untitled by Kiiko.

I like Untitled by Kiiko. I love the interplay of shadow and light. The Rules of Thirds is used in bounding the dark right edge and the placement of the subject. The green and red are complementary colors. It’s well-composed in framing, color, and lighting.
