Go Brown. But not THE BROWNS.

I never choose brown, yet I always like it when I wear it. Warm and cozy, comfortable, browns are delicious and earthy and now that I’m swaddled in them I’m happy. For now.

There is a football team called the Browns. I’ve always thought this was a terrible name. I can’t get behind a color. How can I feel the ferocious violence of a sports team, and scream at them to destroy the opponent when they are just called the Browns? I just can’t. This is why I WILL NEVER ROOT FOR YOU BROWNS! Well, also because I’m a Colts fan. But that’s another story. Continue reading

Things Go Awry

Lately I have been having more trouble shooting on location than usual, but I really wanted to get off my platform, so I hopped over to Sky Neist Point and found this little beach and took a few snaps. I was dressed for wandering with this lovely linen dress with embroidery from Gizza. The jacket is attached to the dress and has a HUD giving three color options for the jacket. The dress comes in six options, this Boho style in pink, blue or creme,  gingham and a floral print. Continue reading

From Blogger to Creator

jul03_002

I am always excited when a blogger becomes a clothing designer. I think of Milla Michanaga who formed MichaMi and Elysium Elide who started elymode and recognize that both of them focused long and hard on construction quality. I think that, being bloggers, they had this pre-formed set of standards that created a daunting hurdle to overcome before they began to release. Having noted construction flaws in other work, they felt an obligation to do as they say and held themselves to higher standards. So, when Thalia Heckroth™ told me she was moving into clothing design, I was excited. This is her first release and I am pleased to say she continues the tradition.

In Dreams

I built a fort in my living room for no better reason than that I could. I brought my records and some snacks, and determined to live in my fort for the night. It seemed like a good idea at the time.

I was hearing the end of The Jerk in my head as I planned it. “And some watermelon, and this record player….and THAT’S ALL I NEED, and these sandwiches…”

If you’re old enough, you’ll laugh. Continue reading

Staying In…… in VoguE

If you plan on staying in, the Boudoir Collection at VoguE has a good selection to choose from for your “needs”.   And for mine… I chose Dracy.  Its mesh, but a see through chemise lets your gorgeous shape show through.

Come Back to the House in Marfa.

0625_003

When I rezzed the Scarlet Creative Stargazer house in the sand, it immediately brought to mind the unforgettable house from Giant in the way it sat alone and defiant without any plants or trees to soften its edges and settle it into the environment.

Jimmy Dean poster 3

This made me think of another great film inspired by the original, Robert Altman’s Come Back to the Five & Dime, Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean. I may be branded a heretic for all time for this, but I much prefer the underrated Altman film to the much-honored classic that inspired it.

I think it was the performance by Sandy Dennis that made this film so memorable for me. It was the first time I had seen her in a film and she blew me away. I know the Stargazer house is much smaller and not as quaintly Victorian, but I am sure you can see how I made the connection.

Summer Breeze……

Summer Breeze

…makes me feel fine, blowing through the jasmine in my mind….
Love Seals and Croft and that song just felt like it fit this mood. Standing on the beach at Black Basalt Beach, a beautiful sim to just hang out or surf (or take pictures). This post is dedicated to the summer themed items at Collabor88, which just opened on June 8th.

Here I Sit Broken Hearted

Ok no I am not finishing that little poem.

I do have a magical boat that lets me levitate, however. I’m fairly impressed by that. You should be too. Well, in fact, I’d adjusted my sit to show my shoes better then rethought that and forgot to adjust back. I figure, if I acknowledge it, then I no one can sweat me for it.  I always sort of wonder if people know they are floating, or that objects around them are floating when I see this. Time is the mind killer, we spend so much time doing this and that it’s easy to miss a little thing like levitation, amirite? Continue reading

When you dream

0601_001
One of the joys of Second Life is allowing us to inhabit parallel lives, the lives we dreamed in our youth. Like many of you, I dreamed of all sorts of “when I grow up” scenarios. Mostly I said I wanted to be an archeologist when I grew up, but there were times when I declared my intent for president, supreme court justice, artist and dancer. Of course, I did grow up to inhabit none of these dreams, finding instead my adult dream as a political activist. I am happy with my adult dreams and only feel a faint nostalgic wistfulness for my childhood dreams. How fun it is, though, to live those dreams as an avatar. This season’s offerings from The Arcade are really the stuff dreams are made of.
