Cars Are Cars


I will be DJ’ing at The Velvet at Noon today – a Rez Day party for a much-loved resident who frequents the club. What is so amazing about him is that he has never said a word. He just beeps or honks the horn of his car avatar, yet manages to communicate approval and welcome. Most of all he communicates joie d’vivre. He joins in events with gusto, finding super-sized sunglasses for his windshield for the beach event and flower for the Valentine’s Day Party. In this chat-centric world we inhabit, his life as a nonverbal communicator is performance art of the highest level. So, he turns 1 today and we wish him the very best and many happy returns.



Cars are cars
All over the world
Cars are cars
All over the world
Similarly made
Similarly sold
In a motorcade
Abandoned when they’re old
Cars are cars
All over the world

Like a magpie, I was immediately drawn to the glittery goodness of this dress from Liv-Glam. I love the many details that make this extraordinary from the sheer to opaque dress to the dark bronze to brilliant gold of the embellishment scattered down the front. It’s a gorgeous design. I think some of the shadows drawn onto the texture is the tiniest bit overdone, particularly under the arms, but that is more than compensated for by the lovely, stylish and flattering design. A great dress for the club, dancing or a night out with friends.

Chicago Blues


Come on, baby don’t you want to go
Come on, baby don’t you want to go
To the same old place, sweet home Chicago

Now, one and one is two, two and two is four
I’m heavy loaded baby, I’m booked, I gotta go
Cryin’ baby, honey, don’t you want to go
Back to the same old place, my sweet home Chicago

Hoodoo Voodoo

July 15th_008

This cute and casual top from MEB called out to me, insisting it would be the perfect choice for showing off the short haircuts. It’s true that a boat neck with hair off the neck, whether short, in an updo or a pony always makes a gorgeous neckline. I added some comfy leggings by Pink Outfitters for the July faMESHed showcase.

Hoodoo voodoo, seven, twenty-one, two
Haystacka, hostacka, A B C
High poker, low joker, ninety-nine to zero
Sidewalk, streetcar, dance a goofy dance

Black birdy, blue jay, one, two, three, four
Trash sack, jump back, E F G
Biggy hat, little hat, fatty man, skinny man
Grasshopper, green snake, hold my hand

Hoodoo voodoo, chooka chooky choo choo
True blue, how true, kissle me now

Hair Fair 2012: Short Hair

I definitely recommend you click the slideshow and view it full-size on Flickr. I really wanted you to see all sides of the short cuts, especially the ones from MADesigns with the intricate fade cuts on the tattoo layer. MADesigns tattoo layers are modifiable. You receive a single one that you color to match your hair. All of these cuts are at Hair Fair and a portion of every hair sold goes to Wigs for Kids. I have included several men’s styles that seem to work well for women as well.

Can’t Orkney firbkkk phone

Zenith June

Can you believe Gidge posted this morning before heading off for surgery? She also live-plurked her way through much of the pre-operative process of drugs and painkillers preparing her for surgery, until her last pre-surgery message, “Can’t Orkney firbkkk phone.” Orkney is where mommies go to nap.

The Moon Is on Ice


The Sakura gown from Azul comes alive in the moonlight. This is a dress that needs to be seen to be truly appreciated. The flow of the fabric is slow and gentle, far from the windsock in a hurricane I usually end up with when playing with a flexi-prim.

The moon is on ice
It smiles from above
It lights up the night
And sends you its love
And sends you its love
In a small cafe
You said you were mine
The moon is on ice
Sitting alone
And love is the price
It won’t let you go

Azul Linda for Culture Shock


My favorite of the three offerings from Azul for Culture Shock is this gorgeous brown and gold floral print. It’s a slinky, body-hugging mermaid style dress that is elegant and formal, but with an easy style that is very contemporary.

Get Your Kicks On Route Sixty-Six


I headed off to the Mother Road for this shoot. The outfit is more contemporary than the vintage aesthetic of The Mother Road, but the colors made me think of that time period, so I went with it.

If you ever plan to motor west,
Travel my way, take the highway that is best.
Get your kicks on route sixty-six.
