The Sky is a Hazy Shade of Winter


Time, time, time, see what's become of me
While I looked around 
For my possibilities 
I was so hard to please
But look around, leaves are brown
And the sky is a hazy shade of winter.

Now She's In Purple......

She tries not to shatter, kaleidoscope style
Personality Changes behind her red smile
Every new problem brings a stranger inside
Helplessly forcing one more new disguise

Christine, the strawberry girl
Christine, the banana split lady
Christine, the strawberry girl
Christine, the banana split lady

Singing sweet savages lost in our world
This big eyed girl sees her faces unfurl
Now she's in purple, now she's the turtle
Disintegrating
~lyrics from "Christine" by Siouxsie and the Banshees

I can't get enough of the skeleton accessories from DirtyStories. These shoulder pads sure make shoulder pads cool again.  Also all my shots were taken on the Dirtyland sim home to the DirtyStories main store. It truly is gorgeous store and sim, you so need to pop in and see it some time.

So I have to say I was at a loss for a song for his piece. I knew there was one that would fit perfect but it just seemed to be eluding me. I decided to ask my friend Milton Nightfire, so I tossed him one of the pics and in seconds, and I mean mere seconds he comes back with Christine by Siouxsie & The Banshees. His inspiration was the line "Now she's in purple, now she's a turtle." The purple part totally fits! Funny thing about this song is I am so not a Siouxsie fan at all, but this song was often sang to me by a friend in Jr. high and high school as my middle name is Christine so it holds a dear place in my heart. The more I read the lyrics, the more I think this song fits perfectly in this blog.

I mentioned my friend Milton, what I didn't mention yet is he is the DJ for Dick Sandwich a traveling punk rock show. Milton, along with the fabulous Kookie Hax as his amazing hostess, can be found in various cool locations around the grid on Sunday Mornings from 5-7 a.m. SLT. Ya just never know where you will end up when you go chasing Dick Sandwich. Best way to keep tabs on this awesome punk fest is to join their free in world group here secondlife:///app/group/39baba22-3f0f-cbbe-df01-d71e7ceb8c30/about (copy paste in your viewer's local chat then click the link.) I just have to say the crowd that follows this duo is probably the friendliest group of people I have come across in SL in a long time. I do hope you can come and join in the early morning mosh pit sometime soon!

Ooh, You Make Me Live...


...Whenever this world is cruel to me
I got you to help me forgive
Ooh, you make me live now honey
Ooh, you make me live...





Halloween is over but I have one more thing I need to post.  I decided to make a gross zombie look as a surprise for my favorite Wifey-co-blogger over there, Guennie!  She's the one that turned me onto The Walking Dead a few seasons ago and, since it may or may not be her birthday in a couple days (I'll never tell!) I thought I'd do a fun little zombie post just to say how much she rocks!

Quite franky, this blog would not even exist without all her tireless work.  She's the one that builds that sponsor list, talking to designers to arrange for us to be allowed to blog their lovely creations.  She's the one that gets us on the list to blog all the amazing events we've been involved in.  She's the one that came up with the idea of us blogging to begin with. And she's the one whose unfaltering belief in me has constantly pushed me to try new things and just always try to do better.  None of this would exist if not for her.  

Sometimes she feels like she's slacking because her rl is so hectic and her computer is a snotty little bitch so she doesn't get to blog as much as she would like.  But, to be completely honest, she does so much work behind the scenes that I can say none of this would happen without her, she runs circles around me! And with her insane rl schedule I really can't comprehend how she does it. But she does.  And I'm so thankful to her for it. 

I'm thankful to her for a lot of things really...she is always there to chat no matter how busy she is, she  has no problem calling me out on something to tell me I'm an idiot if needed, she's always got my back even before I realize I needed it, and best of all, even though I think I irritate the crap out of her with it, she never yells at me when I turn all her fuzzies into zombies with the Dead Me app!  

Evil Zombie Ass!!!




So thank you Guennie.  Thank you for all you do.  And thank you for being you!  Happy Birthday! <3
