“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?

Sneak Preview:”This is our lives on holiday.”

My photo is a little misleading because I live in Vegas, but I’ve only lived here for about 3 and half years. I grew up and lived in Albuquerque, New Mexico for the most part, and I traveled Route 66 many, many times. Fashion Dazzle’s theme for July is Retro Fashion Trips at Route 66, and Glitter has an exclusive for you! This is the dawning of the rest of our lives.jpgGlitter offers several color choices and each color comes with a hud, so change the boot colors and top colors to fit the mood. Also, the jeans with boots and the top are separate pieces so you can mix and match as much as you like. On holidayFashion Dazzle’s July round starts on the 1st and will finish on the 25th.

“Tell forth your tale, and spareth for no man…”

Although the Third Annual Medieval Faire nears its end, there’s much to come in the next two days. Feline Fine Fanatics’ Grimhilde Dress is an elegant gown with a definite edge. The leather cuffs have a subtle pattern that accompanies the noble print and flattering silhouette that starts with a collar and flows into a train and collar. Honestly, FFFs’ Grimhilde made me feel like a powerful queen, so I’d like to share an anecdote.

“Gladly,” quod she, “since that it may you like.
But that I pray to all this company,
If that I speak after my fantasy,”#MedievalWoman“As taketh not a-grief of what I say,
For my intent is not but for to play.
Now, sir, then will I tell you forth my tale.”Medieval Dinner“As ever may I drinken wine or ale
I shall say sooth: the husbands that I had
As three of them were good, and two were bad.
The three men were good and rich and old.”
Sitting Medieval RegalUnnethè mighten they the statute hold
In which that they were bounden unto me.
You wot well what I mean of this, pardee. 
As God me help, I laughè when that I think,
How piteously a-night I made them swink.”

“Of a’ the airts the wind can blaw…”

“I dearly like the west,
For there the bonie lassie lives,
The lassie I lo’ve best:The lassie I lo've best
There’s wild woods grow, and rivers row,
And mony a hill between;
But day and night my fancy’s flight
Is ever wi’ my Jean.”

MacAlister and Lady MacAlister of Skye, available at the Medieval Faire for Relay For Life, is the perfect couple’s outfit. Both are mesh, but MacAlister also has Omega Appliers for a variety of shirts. For this purpose, Taco is wearing the traditional mesh shirt. He has to tend to the horses while I forage for food. Lady MacAlister features the same plaid pattern but with a vibrant forest green corseted waist. If you haven’t stopped by the Medieval Faire for Relay For Life, remember the fair ends on June 18th. Don’t miss the opportunity to listen and dance to live music, participate in games, explore a medieval environment, and shop for a worthy cause.
