“In a land of make believe”

I’m the [product] of rage and love / The Jesus of Suburbia / The bible of none of the above / On a steady diet of [Prozac] and [Trazodone] / No one ever died for my Sins in hell / As far as I can tell / At least the ones that I got away with / And there’s nothing wrong with me / This is how I’m supposed to be / In a land of make believe / That don’t believe in meIt says home is where your heart isGet my television fix / Sitting on my crucifix / The living room in my private womb / While the [Reps] and brats are away / To fall in love and fall in debt / To alcohol and cigarettes / And [against the grain] / To keep me insane / [Drinking someone else’s champagne] / And there’s nothing wrong with me / This is how I’m supposed to be / In a land of make believe / That don’t believe in meeveryone's heart doesn't beat the sameAt the center of the earth / In the parking lot / Of [the Vegas Apartment] where I was taught / The motto was just a lie / It says home is where your heart is / But what a shame / Cause everyone’s heart / Doesn’t beat the same / It’s beating out of timeIs the end of the worldCity of the dead / At the end of another lost highway / Signs misleading to nowhere / City of the damned / Lost children with dirty faces today / No one really seems to care / I read the graffiti / In the bathroom stall / Like the holy scriptures of a shopping mall /And so it seemed to confessSigns misleading to nowhereIt didn’t say much / But it only confirmed that / The center of the earth / Is the end of the world / And I could really care less / City of the dead / At the end of another lost highway / Signs misleading to nowhere /City of the damned / Lost children with dirty faces today / No one really seems to careThe [Lovey] of suburbiaI don’t care if you don’t / I don’t care if you don’t / I don’t care if you don’t care / I don’t care if you don’t / I don’t care if you don’t / I don’t care if you don’t care / I don’t care if you don’t / I don’t care if you don’t / I don’t care if you don’t care / I don’t care if you don’t / I don’t care if you don’t / I don’t care if you don’t care

I don’t care

Everyone’s so full of shit / Born and raised by hypocrites / Hearts recycled but never saved / From the cradle to the grave / We are the kids of war and peace / From Anaheim to the Middle East / We are the stories and disciples of / The Jesus of suburbiaI don't care if you don't careLand of make believe / And it don’t believe in me / Land of make believe / And I don’t believe And I don’t care!I don't care.pngDearly beloved are you listening? / I can’t remember a word that you were saying / Are we demented or am I disturbed? / The space that’s in between insane and insecure / Oh therapy, can you please fill the void? / Am I retarded or am I just overjoyed / Nobody’s perfect and I stand accused / For lack of a better word, and that’s my best excuseI lost my faith to thisTo live, and not to breathe / Is to die, in tragedy / To run, to run away / To find, what you believe / And I leave behind / This hurricane of fucking lies / I lost my faith to this / This [valley] that don’t exist / So I run, I run away / To the lights of masochistsAnd there's nothing wrong with meAnd I, leave behind / This hurricane of fucking lies / And I, walked this line / A million and one fucking times / But not this time  / I don’t feel any shame / I won’t apologize / When there ain’t nowhere you can go / Running away from pain / When you’ve been victimized You're leavingTales from another broken home / Oh you’re leaving / You’re leaving / You’re leaving / Are you leaving home?

Destroy illusion and put truth in its place

So, I sat in my husband’s man cave for a bit. After sitting for a while, I starting organizing it. Mind you, I didn’t literally organize it. I just sat and wondered how I could recreate that essence of mine in my own setting.

Lock up your libraries if you like.jpg

While I have my own space, I realized I couldn’t recreate what I envision in my head without spending massive amounts of money remodeling it, so I appreciated the simplicity of my hubby’s room. It’s filled with what’s important to him. Now I need to figure out what is important to me in my room even thought it really wouldn’t match the connecting rooms.  No, I can’t think that way. Actually, I can’t stop thinking that way.

there is no gate, no lock, no bolt that you can set upon the freedom of my mind

Character flaw? In my defense, it doesn’t help that the kitchen is right behind me. And the dining room is to my left. I could add my own touches to both I suppose, but kitchens and dining rooms don’t inspire me lol. Maybe I need to dare to dream.

Truth had run through my fingers.jpg

“What is meant by “reality”? It would seem to be something very erratic, very undependable—now to be found in a dusty road, now in a scrap of newspaper in the street, now a daffodil in the sun. It lights up a group in a room and stamps some casual saying.”

Reality is a state of mind

“It overwhelms one walking home beneath the stars and makes the silent world more real than the world of speech—and then there it is again in an omnibus in the uproar of Piccadilly. Sometimes, too, it seems to dwell in shapes too far away for us to discern what their nature is. But whatever it touches, it fixes and makes permanent. That is what remains over when the skin of the day has been cast into the hedge; that is what is left of past time and of our loves and hates.”

“Do you have the time to listen to me whine?” No? Fair enough.

I jest about the whining. Well, I do whine quite a bit, but time is valuable, so if one doesn’t want to hear whining, he or she can shut it off. Tonight I’m mostly whining about the end of one of my favorite SL events.

My mind is set on overdriveThat’s right. Pose Fair is over. Did you have a good time? I’m going to take a moment to give a shout out to all the pose creators. Thank you for taking the time to inject life into SL! Movement implies life and that in turn suggests emotion.Somebody keep my balanceWhile avatars are not alive, the people behind  the keyboard are most definitely living and breathing creatures. Incidentally, I’ll always remember my first experience with animation in SL. Always move forwardI actually thought the default Ruth stand was cool because it was different and it looked like a confused chick. Now, it’s kinda irritating, but only when I’m in the midst of making a pose work. I found my place in nowhereNow, look how far SL has come! I can’t imagine SL without Project Bento now, so pose makers, keep those poses coming! It’s probably (most certainly) more difficult, but know it makes all the difference, especially to those who use animated hand gestures in RL.   On my own, here we go

I have a RL friend of a RL friend who uses her hands to make every point and it’s appropriate for that friend of friend because her poker face sucks. One may call her overly animated. Poor thing. She has good intentions (I really do!).

April 22:”What comes next, I see a light.”

How’d you spend Earth day? I had the best day! My physical results are the starters of a farmer sunburn (eventual tan), but there’s so much more. Sadly, emotional results are left to interpretation because they’re difficult to quantify. Just believe okay? 😉

Carved into stone “Unwilling to come undone”.jpg

Nevertheless, I’ll try to explain. Hanging around people with similar goals is fun. It’s easy. My local #ScienceMarchLV was actually a rally, but marches and rallies aren’t just marches and rallies. They’re marathons because the finish line requires endurance.

I'm with her

I may or may not be preaching to the choir, but take it for what it is. My thoughts are my sole responsibility, yet I love to share.
