Memories

When I saw this outfit from Addams, it immediately reminded me of my favorite outfit in the 80s. Yes yes I know, we all think of different colors, we think of shoulderpads that made us look like huge closets, we think of blue netshirts pulled over green t-shirts. And yes, I also wore that too. A lot. Guilty as charged. But my favorite was this. A denim overall, a shirt. Ok ok, my Mom would have never allowed the shirt to be so short or the pants ripped to pieces (as she would have called it), but there were ways… and I know you know what I am talking about.

Enough damaging my innocent reputation, let me show you what I am talking about

Crazy For You


Found myself today
Singing out loud your name
You said I'm crazy
If I am I'm crazy for you

Sometimes sitting in the dark
Wishing you were here
Turns me crazy
But it's you who makes me lose my head

And every time I'm meant to be acting sensible
You drift into my head
And turn me into a crumbling fool

Tell me to run and I'll race
If you want me to stop I'll freeze
And if you want me gone, I'll leave
Just hold me closer, baby
And make me crazy for you
Crazy for you

Lately with this state I'm in
I can't help myself but spin
I wish you'd come over
Send me spinning closer to you

My oh my, how my blood boils
It's sweet taste for you
Strips me down bare
And gets me into my favourite mood

I keep on trying, fighting these feelings away
But the more I do
The crazier I turn into

Pacing floors and opening doors
Hoping you'll walk through
And save me boy
Because I'm too crazy for you
Crazy for you

                ~~ Adele

A New Day Has Come


I was waiting for so long
For a miracle to come
Everyone told me to be strong
Hold on and don't shed a tear

Through the darkness and good times
I knew I'd make it through
And the world thought I'd had it all
But I was waiting for you

Hush now I see a light in the sky
Oh it's almost blinding me
I can't believe I've been touched by an angel with love

Let the rain come down and wash away my tears
Let it fill my soul and drown my fears
Let it shatter the walls for a new sun
A new day has come

When it was dark now there's light
Where there was pain now's there's joy
Where there was weakness I found my strength
All in the eyes of a boy

Quality Night Preparations

Friends and I had an interesting talk about how we would do a quality night with our significant other. Little trivia: In german we call them “our better half”. Not really sure if that always fits :D

Back to topic. It was interesting to see how differently the girls thought about that. For one it was a candlelight dinner, I swear she would be in the kitchen for days to prepare. For one it was going out, dressed up nicely, a fine (and of course expensive) restaurant. And guess who would have to pay. Personally, I don’t think it needs much. Especially not much (of his) money. His favorite drink, dressed up nicely, and a smile tells him enough ♥

Review of Backdrop City


Yes, I did it, and I'll admit it amid the controversy. I explored Backdrop City. And well, it's a cornucopia of backdrops for bloggers and anyone wanting to take pics with cool backdrops! My hat's off to MiaJolina for offering up her sim to the public. 

Sparky has now declared himself King of the Pallets. He barks to maintain his standing in case there are similarly sized rodents vying for the title.

The positives: We bloggers et al. now have a central place to hunt for suitable backdrops, which makes our "job" easier. I don't anticipate much trouble using the areas - since these are a collection of backdrops it's obvious when someone is using one; we can easily steer around them so as not to interrupt their set-ups. The sim is set up categorically, and LMs to areas can now be found at the main entrance. 

Here's a huge plus from a creator and consumer standpoint - I am also becoming acquainted with the work of creators previously unknown to me. Like this backdrop by [Wartz] - Alleyway, a rare from a gacha collection. It may be that I live on my platform too much, or tend to blog items that are not alley-worthy? lol But I was completely unaware of this brand, and what awesome work! I'm really psyched about finding new brands and what I can buy-buy-buy. ;)

The negatives: I am aware that some backdrop creators are upset. Since I'm not a backdrop creator I can't put myself in their shoes, but I can try to empathize as they share their concerns. It seems that MiaJolina has only the best of intentions, and there are clear indications that she is flexible. I say give this a chance. Many folks prefer to buy their own backdrops and stage detailed set-ups on their own platforms. And often, backdrops will blend into someone's own creativity and they are left out as part of their virtual environment. I don't think that will change. 

I do, however, think it is absolutely essential that bloggers provide links/information about the backdrops themselves when using them at Backdrop City. The sim has a reminder note to do that, and a good blogger knows to do that anyway. So maybe that's not a negative after all.

Time will prove how this develops. It will be very interesting to see.  One thing is for sure - no matter how differing opinions start - this is a time for discussion, not name-calling and fighting. I think this is a prime example of figuring something out as a community.
