Outside

If you haven't seen Sonic Highways, the series that showed Foo Fighters' exploration of eight cities influence on music, you should give it a try. My favourite episode was Los Angeles, with interviews of  people involved in the punk scene, and then a look at the Joshua Tree studio out in the desert. That segment and the song Outside inspired this photo.


"Outside" by Foo Fighters
There's a long straight road, out of the cold
And we can leave it all behind
I wanna get outside, baby, let's get outside
I wanna get outside, outside, of me

All I found, the space between the spaces
Standing in the nothing, and time reclaims you
And as the wind will beat you down
And the wind the only sound
There's something out there

I See You

After a few months of being too busy to get any photos done, it felt really good to get back and get one out of my system.
This was also my first visit to the new IASWAS sim, which I'd been looking forward to visiting!
It All Starts With a Smile is a beautiful sim run by Kaelyn and Maxx, with a modest group fee if you need to rezz for a photo there.
Now, hopefully I'll see you back here soon!



"I See You" performed by Luke Bryan
I can't go anywhere, I can't do anything

No, I can't close my eyes without you in my dreams

You won't leave me alone, even though I know you're gone 
I look around for someone new, but I see you

Jumpin’ up there with the band

Takin’ me by the hand

Hey boy, come dance with me

Stuck like a melody in my head
In the bed of my truck

By the light of the midnight moon

Baby, I see you

Second Guess

"Hey, what if Billy switched teams?"
This was the comment that got the photo started, as a fun April Fool's Day photo. But as I looked at it preparing it for upload to Flickr, I felt weird about it being a "joke." I posted it and left the date-specific commentary off of it.
It's a cute picture of a couple  snuggling on a bench. It's simple. Love can be whatever you want it to be, and it's beautiful to see, whether's it's a guy & girl, two guys, two girls, or as we've all seen in SL, even a neko and a robot.
Who cares? It's just love. Anyone who can't enjoy seeing the sweetness of two people in love should have their heads and hearts examined. And remember, if they're using the book to justify their hate, then they need to read it again.
Galatians 3:28
There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.

Have a Good Friday.


"Second Guess" by You+Me

Ain't got no reason but I've got rhymes
I've spent too much of what I've earned just trying to feel alive
I wish I could rewrite the stories of the past
But you can't go back and change what's done and start over where you began

I don't know where to go from here now
Something still lingers though, it's weighing me down
I know the sun will shine again
Back and forth it seems we'll remain until the end

Bloodstream

Kaelyn and I have been talking about blogging a few things for a month or so, and we just never had time when the other did to get much of the list done. But when she passed me this song "Bloodstream", I knew that it would be perfect for the new pose Lust by Rack Poses.
Add a dirty location, put on some sexy clothes, drink a little red wine, and BOOM!



"Bloodstream" by Ed Sheeran

I've been spinning now for time
Couple women by my side
I got sinning on my mind
Sipping on red wine
I've been sitting here for ages
Ripping out the pages
How'd I get so faded?
How'd I get so faded?

Island In The Sun

When we take a vacation, one of the biggest attractions isn't just the sun, it's the freedom to turn your mind off and not worry about the normal day to day things, like wearing a watch, or checking email.
Maybe you like a little bit of drinking, and don't want to wait for something silly like 5pm to start. Beer is for breakfast wen you're on vacation!
And maybe, just maybe, your idea of a vacation is like Billy's.
(2nd photo after the cut)


"Island In The Sun" by Weezer
When you're on a holiday
You can't find the words to say
All the things that come to you
And I wanna feel it too

On an island in the sun
We'll be playing and having fun
And it makes me feel so fine
I can't control my brain

Almost Cut My Hair

When you've had a couple friends bugging you to adopt a shorter haircut, and then you randomly find a Barber Shop, maybe you suddenly have a great idea for a photo!
As luck would have it, the Metro set from Apple Fall came out just as I was thinking about how to set everything up, and it completed the scene perfectly.
And now, I will run my fingers through my long hair and wave to Katya & Skye, then pick up my guitar while avoiding the haircut for a little while longer.



"Almost Cut My Hair" performed by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young
Almost cut my hair, it happened just the other day.
It's getting' kinda long, I coulda said it wasn't in my way.
But I didn't and I wonder why, I feel like letting my freak flag fly,
Cause I feel like I owe it to someone.

Take Your Time

I love to explore beautiful sims that my friends have shared with me. And it's especially cool to find one that allows rezz, which seems to be pretty rare.
L'Arc en Ciel is wonderfully landscaped, and has many different area to explore or take photos. They require group membership to rezz, at a modest 100L$, but it's well worth it if that modest amount helps the sim owner to keep the land open. In fact, I'd happily join several land groups just to know I could freely add items to a scene to get the photos I want.
The windlight used isn't the region default (I needed the shadow just right), but the default was pretty as well.
Go visit L'Arc en Ciel, and don't forget to donate to beautiful sims if you can!



"Take Your Time" by Sam Hunt
I don't know if you were looking at me or not
You probably smile like that all the time
And I don't mean to bother you but
I couldn't just walk by
And not say hi
