Lost in the Backyard

“It’s been too long
Don’t think I’ve seen you smile at me for quite a while
And we’re too busy doing things
We haven’t noticed what’s missing
Where’s the fun we used to have?”

~ Natasha Bedingfield

I think sometimes we forget that we have to embrace the childlike parts of ourselves in order to survive being an adult and doing adult things.  Especially when we feel a little lost.  We should embrace that fearlessness we once had as children, be bold and brave and simply…let go.

New DJ Promo Shots

So after being asked to supply the people who are honoring me tonight with a DJ photo of myself, it hit me…TIME FOR NEW PROMO PHOTOS! Honor you say? Why yes. So let me Tarantino this for you right quick. Tonight is Zeta Gamma Rho’s First Annual Black Excellence Gala, an event honoring Black-owned Businesses in Second Life.

And for those who didn’t know, not only am I a blogger and a store owner (KJ Immortal: Home to KJIm Apparel | KJIm Kids Apparel| KJIm Poses … KJIm for short 😛 ) but I have been an online DJ in Second Life since 2008. Not a huge deal in the grand scheme of things. But it is something that I truly enjoy and am proud of having done for so long. I love playing music for people, taking requests & interacting with the crowd…hopefully making their booties shake and sing along behind their comps. I know that I’m not the best at what I do (especially since I don’t live mix)…but to be considered is an honor nonetheless and I’m extremely grateful for the award.

Anywho, after rifling through my closets trying to find the perfect look, I snapped a couple of shots and then couldn’t decide which one looked better so I made two.  Feel free to put in comments which one you like better.

If you’re looking to complete the look, you definitely want to head over to Blueberry to pick up her latest release because these swank boots come with it! The detail on the heel is to die for; so intricate! And if you get the fatpack you get exclusive colors along with both the regular jean and leather huds (which I’m wearing right in these shots here…RAWR)!  Rounding out my look are what might be my newest favorite piece of body jewelry: the Coax bellychain from Cynful. I love how the ball bearings are pulled together to complete the look. You can pick that (and some really hot lingerie) up over at Whore couture until 03/31/017.

Anywaaaaay, now that the promos are done…time to get changed for tonight! Ciao for now kids!

Channeling a Diva…

“And I’ll be eternally grateful…holding you so close to me…” ~ Mariah Carey

I can’t help but feel like sometimes, this song isn’t about the love of a person at all…but the love of music. Especially when paired with the single’s album cover from back in the day.

2017-02-08_005

So I’ve had this dress in my closet for a hot minute and I kid you not…every time I put it on, I feel like I’m swept into this musical time warp that brings me to the fiercely gorgeous ladies who swayed behind Robert Palmer…and the incomparable (and very much well-labeled) diva, Miss Mariah Carey.

It’s like…I put this dress on and all of a sudden “Vision of Love” starts playing in my head. And then when I close my eyes to hear the song, I’m pulled into the album cover like when that lady in the A-Ha video gets pulled into that comic strip in the video Take On Me.  Before I know it, I’ve surrendered to the rapture of this song and the intoxication of passion behind the words.

The words are elusive and beautiful while keeping the song simple.  I love it. And even though I feel her stage performance rivals that of bricks melting into concrete while being topped with tar…I can’t deny the power of her vocals. Anyway…off to get lost in more good music.

TTFN!

Awaiting the Thaw

Shot on location: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Faerie%20Tale/110/121/23

Pain manifests in my forest as cold, a freeze unlike anything we have ever known. This pain depletes my essence. A child of the forest I am…and we were slowly succumbing to the cold.

2017-02-06_002

Mama Caru, mother of the unicorns took me, hoisted me to her back and I felt her warmth flow through me. Mama Caru knelt before her family at our fountain…hooves crossed, head bowed.  “Rest, child…” she cooed. “Tomorrow we will tend our forest, make her stronger and await the thaw…”

“Will we ever recover? Will earth and I become renewed?” She nodded slowly, bowing and whispered, “as soon as it thaws, child.  But for now…we will wait.” So we did..
