Rumpelstiltskin Was a Douche

The Tale of Rumpelstiltskin was always one that troubled me as a child. Really this poor girl has been kidnapped against her will because her FATHER is an ass and you can’t be nice to her and help her out? You have to make a bargain for her FIRST CHILD?

And what’s he going to do with the child anyway? I can’t even remember what the story says. In my mind, he’s going to eat it.  WHAT A JERKWAD.  Continue reading

I Left The Window Open

Leaves blowing in are just one danger of leaving open your windows around here. Another would be that you might get burglars, or noobs.  I chanced it and only wound up with a shower of leaves as the fall colors are suddenly everywhere. Continue reading

Autumn has been painting its palette all across Second Life for the past month. I stopped by Izzie’s because it is always one of the most beautiful seasonal sims and sure enough, Izzie’s portrait of autumn is beautiful. In fact, it’s so lovely, I decided to use a paint filter on one of my snaps to turn it into a painting. If you stop by Izzie’s, don’t touch the kitty, she is shy.

Ample AVI ? Hmmm Maybe…

I saw on NWN that AMPLE AVI is having a promotion on a curvier shape called THROE for HALLOWEEN and decided to see how it works with my mesh body. I’ve been toying with being a bit curvier for a few weeks so I thought I’d just give this one a spin since it was only 100L to try. Continue reading

You Got Me Singing

One of the rules I live by comes from Voltaire, who said “The perfect is the enemy of the good.” A similar idea is attributed to Confucius, “Better a diamond with a flaw than a pebble without.” I really took this aphorism to heart when a friend of mine was writing a book on dismantling racism. I was reading, editing and helping him find illustrations. The book was ready to go for a few years before it was published because he kept trying to perfect it, looking for a better example, a more perfect metaphor, a stronger anecdote, a better adjective. I ended up making him a sign on a huge poster board with Voltaire’s quote blown up big and stuck in on the wall by his desk. It still took him another six months to let it out of his perfection-seeking hands.

I was listening to Leonard Cohen’s newest album, Popular Problems. His 80 year old voice is rough, dry and imperfect, but those imperfections give it such an emotional resonance that my skin prickled and raised goosebumps and my eyes became hot with emotion ready to brim over in tears. While listening, that quote from Voltaire came to mind again and I had a small epiphany. The perfect is the enemy of the good in another way – not only does the search for perfection paralyze us, but it also does not move us emotionally. Thinking of another Canadian singer, Celine Dion has perfect pitch. Her voice is flawless and strong and she has never once moved me emotionally. Even singing songs with sentimental lyrics, she leaves me cold and I don’t care for her at all. Perfection is not beautiful, imperfection is.

Cracker Eating, Popcorn Eating, Whatever

Somnia released from silly tee shirts for Lazy Sunday and I have to confess this is normally how RL Gidge sits around blogging, wearing nothing but a tee shirt. I couldn’t resist.

I’m trying out a new skin from Belleza and taking their VENUS body on another spin.  Continue reading

Lemonface

Yellow is underrated on blondes. I think striking yellows just accentuate beautiful blondes though.  SLINK released a one shoulder dress in many colors, of which yellow is one, which is really an understatement.

A one shoulder dress doesn’t really express how necessary this dress is. It should be called NECESSARY ONE SHOULDER DRESS. Continue reading
