“Basic bitch” has become the insult du jour, which under the common usage of “basic” makes the insult and those who use it basic. Would that make it basic squared? Lots of insults come and go, but this one strikes me as particularly malignant and shallow.
My afternoon began with a text from one of my best friends, Codie. “I need your help. I have to find something to wear to Dirk’s funeral.”
We spend a lot of time getting dressed for frivolous things in SL, things that don’t matter. It’s amazing how your thoughts wander though, when what you are dressing for something that does in fact matter to you, when it’s not frivolity and trite. Continue reading

I have to confess to being a hoarder in SL. Ok maybe a bit in RL. But this year I’m trying to change that, and I’ve already taken my inventory from 114k to 110k by picking a letter of the Alphabet and ruthlessly deleting. I’ve also done some foldering, which if you know me is a min miracle.
While rummaging though, I realize I’ve got every farking dress Baiastice ever made including all from her PRE-MESH days and well, let’s be real I don’t need those. So I started deleting, checking dates, more deleting and then I realized I didn’t remember this dress. Continue reading

Yesterday was Valentine’s Day and I DJ’ed at The Velvet. I put together a set that was about all sides of love, the sweet hopeful love of Valentine’s Day Lovers and the doomed and bitter love of the anti-Valentine’s brigade. It covered many genres and was altogether great fun and good music. Also great fun was this short dress from Legal Insanity, a Valentine’s Day gift. I generally don’t wear graphics on my clothing, but this appealed to me and seemed too perfect for my set to wear anything else.
Maybe I should have shot a close-up to show the fabulous booties from Baiastice. These were released at Shoetopia, but they will be fresh for a long time with their immaculate construction and gorgeous studded heels.
Baiastice has released a stunning set of lingerie for all of your Valentine + Other sexytimes needs. My friend Darkley blogged the lot of it, including other styles as well as colors. Go check it out – you probably need at least one of each if not just fatpack the lot of it. Continue reading
Jazz and blues music have long been popular in Japan where Japanese musicians have worked hard to transform and adapt these uniquely American musical forms into something new. Jazz musicians do not want to be the Japanese version of Sonny Rollins or John Coltrane, but find their own unique language of jazz. For example, Ryochi Hattori the rhythms and harmonies of jazz with the pentatonic scales and folk melodies of Japan. So it’s a pleasure to find a lovely Tokyo little blues club in Second Life. Thanks for the tip, Whimsy!
I have a confession. Pink isn’t actually my favorite color. I love pink. I swaddle myself in pink at every opportunity. But the color I love MOST is a delicious acid green chartreuse green, green of the variety that it’s got yellow in it. I love it. It’s one of those colors that melds well with other things and gives your look a POP. Continue reading
When I saw Gidge had blogged this dress, I probably should have changed into another outfit. However, I think that if something is really great, it is natural that a lot of people will want to wear it and blog it. We participated in the Same Damn Thing Challenge twice – supporting the assertion that even if people wear the same damn thing, they often wear it differently. Well, I guess the big difference is Gidge wore the purse and I did not. But I am wearing shoes! For all you know, Gidge could be barefoot.
