Clubbing on the edge of the world



I was at LEA1 sort of dressed for clubbing - my nipples were feeling self conscious as they peeked under the blatantly ab-pimping crop top.  However there was nobody else there at the time, and no music.  Or faint smell of despair and self loathing.  And yet I danced as if my life depended on it.

Here are some fun and well-priced releases from The Men's Department , including this skin from Kooqla, glasses from Kumaki style, shorts from FAD and hair from Uncle Web.

The crop top is an upcoming release from A.S.S which will be at Boys of Summer, starting from 8 July!

Potatoes of the Night – the most important band in history

(This may be a longish one...)


I'm delighted to share with you some content from an interview with Regencia Jellyspoon, the last surviving member of the area of music that is widely considered to be the most important and influential that there ever was or will be at any time.  Ever: the musical mega-movement known as "The New Cornish Seep"

"Not a lot of these bands were actually from Cornwall, but they all took the rhythms of is Celtic heart and made them unique. The sad thing is that a lot of us were only around for a relatively short period of time, I cannot even begin to imagine the effect on music today if we had all made more albums"  He grunted happily, as I caught him between costume changes at his solo show.


"I began as keyboard/keytar and tambla player for Potatoes of the Night -  we were a beat combo from Falmouth.  Our 1987 concept album "Not just a Carbohydrate" was before its time, and we good great airplay for "Aloo Aloo Aloo" which was about a potato police force on the subcontinent.

"Yeah, that song went global" says Regencia "and from that start, I set up Killer Leeks on marimba with some guys from Malmö - which some consider to be a rip off in that we focussed on leeks rather than potatoes.  Other bands took our vibe and, well, made them less vegetable-centric, like Nagano Project who actually only ever mimed, without any sound at all.  Very cool, if a bit on the quiet side"

"In 1988, the Sparklej*zz song "Wipe me up" made #3 on the Billboard Chart, but they were banned from Top of the Pops for obvious reasons."


New Cornish Seep sadly ended with a huge festival involving all the bands in the movement, including Blatant Dancer, Darkness of the Vector, and others which took place on an oil platform in the North Sea.  Sadly there was a logistical issue with the transport, and nobody could remember where the platform was at the end of the festival.

"Yeah" says Regencia who missed the oil platform gig "I like to think that somewhere out there, those guys are still making music.  If so, there are some lucky fish out there"


THE IMPORTANT BIT!
A.S.S have released a whole range of T-Shirts and blazer combos devoted to these deeply important bands.
They can be worn with or without the blazer, and also have a separate tie available to buy.
To own your piece of rock history, go now, before the cops come!

I still like my regular shape - it makes me feel odd to slip on something that someone else made that changes my whole face.

I put together this outfit to highlight this really nice bit of work from A.S.S.  I can't say that I would wear this in RL mainly as I eat like a bit of a kid and it would just get full of rice.

I just Love Cats so Much.




Sorry, but it's true.  And here's a sad story about a cat and a way to help him.

Alli the Cat

Yes I know that many people are suffering in the world, but I happen to want to do something right now to help this particular cat.  Don't judge me for my choice, because it allowed me to dress up like this (borrowing the clothes from a friend - I LOVE that Bare Rose stuff is transferable!)

Vision in red



Another great release from Aitui with this top / skinny scarf combo. I have no idea what all the names mean, though. Also these mesh eyes from A.S.S that I wanted in red tone to match my pants and hair, as yesterday was Red = Day (I didn't actually do the meme, but the thought was there).  The pic above is supposed to represent the quest for equality.  Or being stuck in a corner.  One of those.

SOME RANDOM AND UNFORMED MUSINGS ON RELIGION FOLLOW - JUMP TO THE END FOR CREDITS

I wandered through various Church type sims in SL, not trying to be too much of a kn*b I only went to take pics at churches that made a point about being inclusive to all regardless of their sexual orientation.  There were a couple, one run by a RL pastor I believe.  This does give me a bit of hope, but often I feel that religious belief (at least in its organized form) is founded on the concept of exclusion rather than inclusivity.  I feel that I am spiritual but completely turned off by people who don't want me in their club; I don't aspire to belong anywhere except on my own terms.

I see much lament on social media from like-minded (i.e. more liberal) people about the sometimes puzzling hypocricies (as we see them) of the "Christian Right": "Pro-gun", "Anti-benefits" etc but also calling themselves "Pro-Life" (which by the way is a great bit of branding for anti-abortion activities).  My feeling is that protecting human dignity should extend beyond the time in the womb "Okay - we got you out of there, now you are on your own.  The gun shop is at the end of that street. Have a great day."

The point about dignity extends to equal opportunities for marriage.  Please remember the casting the first stone thing?  You can't cherry pick from the bible and only go with the bits that exlude people who you don't understand or you find threatening.  Here endeth my rant.

Pinky Snowboy


Yeah the title. Doesn't really. Mean anything. Sorry about that.

However as it is nearly Christmas here is a Haiku about a badger falling in love with a tub of margarine:

Badger crumpet love
Holes fill with yellow sap. He
can’t believe it’s not


This will most likely be my last blog of 2012 as I will soon be heading East. It's been a wild ride hasn't it?  We've had nadirs of pain and sorrow but also such zeniths of ecstasy that I know not how to describe it.  Take care and don't eat any wooden turkeys.

This girl really likes "sorting fish".  Just saying.




A little bit Idle

I did a few shots with me scowling and looking kind of like Billy Idol...but I think I looked more like Eric Idle in the end so I took them out.


Life is always heightened by any kind of compliment.  As a blogger who hardly ever approaches designers to ask for review copies I tend to rely on someone actually seeing my blog and liking it.  This has happened a few times and really makes me delighted.

I am wearing a few items of particular note today.... Firstly the jeans from Ladies who Lunch / LWL which I didn't really photo too much the last time I mentioned them.  They are in the With Love Hunt - go get them.


The skin is from Diamondz Beauty, which is a new brand to me.  It's called "Gianni"  and it made me go more glam although looking at their store's offerings this isn't really just what they do.  I will do some close up shots soon as I like the way I look in it - a bit reminiscent of some skins by Akeruka maybe?


The hair is from Taketomi (which was part of Burley and now is back as a separate brand but within the Burley collaborative group. Or something.) Anyway they have some fun men's cuts - I felt like buying my first colour hairpack so did so.  This is an interesting one as it comes with + without a mesh hair layer (not a tattoo layer) which gives extra depth to the hair.

The boots are from Monso, which is one of my big fanboy brands and available (unisex) at Collabor8. A must have.
