Unsaid

I’ve had this pose from Luna Jubilee on my to blog list for a couple of weeks and finally today I was able to meet up with my friend Danny and make it happen. While we were shooting, Danny decided that he looked like he was thinking about some other woman in this pose instead of the one draped all over him. Curious, I asked who the other woman was that he was thinking about. He replied immediately, “Joni Mitchell.” Now, a girl just can’t get mad about that.  Anyway, he fiddled around a bit with the pose until he felt he looked properly attentive. I’ve included both photos here. Thanks to Danny for the help…I am glad he had Joni to get him through it.

Transformation Challenge

I first met Danny about six months ago, doing what he does best, which is playing music that people love to listen to. (And by people I mean me. Probably some other folks, too.)  There is a story behind every song Danny shares, and usually an over-arching set of stories for any given set that he creates. Sometimes he talks a little about the artists or the songwriters—and during those times it is sometimes possible to catch in his voice the tremolo of the truly musically impassioned.  If you haven’t had the pleasure of hearing him play, do yourself a favor and listen to one of his sets.  You can catch him Tuesday nights at 7pm SLT at Someplace Else or at the Attic on Thursdays at 6pm SLT.

Danny’s pixel transformations have been many. They have also sometimes been hilarious. First there was his “normal” look:

Danny 1

…then there was his Elvis look:

Danny 2

…and my personal favorite, the Santa’s Little Helper look:

Danny 3

Anyway, in a very presumptuous move, I sent him a recent hairstyle and told him that 2009 needed to rest in peace. What has followed has been Danny’s external  transformation. Turns out he is quite skilled at putting himself together as he did for this shoot, choosing a classy blazer from Scars and comfortable jeans from Shai. Internally, why, Danny needs no transformation at all. I am lucky to call him my friend.

I asked Stewart to help me out with this sweet pose from Luna Jubilee today. My background is the gorgeous Iona Conservatory by Cory Edo, available at this month’s round of Collabor88.

Delirium

Love, the deadliest of all deadly things: It kills you both when you have it and when you don’t.

But that isn’t it, exactly.

The condemner and the condemned. The executioner; the blade; the last-minute reprieve; the gasping breath and the rolling sky above you and the thank you, thank you, thank you, God.

Love: It will kill you and save you, both.

-Lauren Oliver, Delirium

New Year Meme

This meme from Strawberry Singh sounded like a good reflective-type activity for today, so here goes. Thanks, as always, to Bastion for showing up photo-ready to help me out today, although I am a bit miffed that he has a better hat than I do.

010614a

  1. How did you spend New Year’s Eve? At home, with my husband. We watched the New Year’s Eve broadcast from Spain, which always gives us new song and film ideas for teaching our Spanish classes.
  2. Did you keep any new years’ resolutions? No. I feel like I am constantly resolved on doing things and being a certain way whether it’s the new year or not.
  3. What was your biggest achievement(s) of the year? In real life, I built and implemented two iPhone games for my Spanish classes. I also presented the games at the national convention for the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages. I know, achievement city right here. In SL, I moved my blog to this new domain. It was a big step, but I am glad I did it.
  4. What was the best thing you bought? In real life, my Alienware computer. I get lots of sidelong looks and questions about being a gamer, but I really love having a powerful computer. I have been creating a lot more visual content for my work and my new machine has really made a difference. And for SL it’s a dream. I also upgraded to Dropbox Pro. It literally changed my life. In SL? Probably my Maya tutorials from Leviathan Flux. I haven’t made anything yet, but I am learning so much!
  5. What do you wish you’d done more of? In real life, I wish I had been able to see more of my family. I am going to make that happen more this year—gasoline prices be darned.
    In SL, I wish I had talked to more people and gone more places. I enjoy the social aspect of SL but tend to hang out on my own rather than intrude in social spheres.
  6. What do you wish you’d done less of? In real life, not much. I worked a lot and played a lot and plan to do more of the same this year. I do wish I cared less about unimportant things. In SL, I wish I had not let my investments become unbalanced. I am working on that.
  7. What was your favorite movie you watched this year? There were two that I previewed for my Spanish Language and Culture class. One is called El Sueño de Iván and the other is called A Better Life. The first is delightful and sweet and the second is heartbreakingly sad. Incidentally, they both star the wonderful Damián Bichir.
  8. What did you do on your birthday this year? In real life, I sang the Verdi Requiem with the Boston Symphony at Tanglewood. It’s probably one of the more wonderful things I’ve done in life, period. In SL, I don’t remember.
  9. Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned. You can climb every mountain, you can ford every stream. You can follow all the rainbows, but it’s no guarantee that you’ll find your dream. I try to forget that from time to time, though.
  10. What does 2014 hold for you? In RL I don’t know but I will be satisfied with health and employment. In SL I hope to learn to do basic modeling and improve my photography.

    Oh you got me intrigued by the Maya classes, I might have to look them up. Not that I am looking to getting into designing, but it may be fun to learn something completely new like that.

    Sounds like you had a pretty eventful and wonderful 2013, hope you get the same and even more in 2014. Thanks for participating. <3
