Open House

As most of you probably know Around the World opened yesterday, I had a look around and it’s an awesome build with some awesome stores with awesome items. Well worth going to check it out!

Around The World

In celebration of the opening I felt it was only fitting to show you folks around my own house, well my current one. I  tend to change often.

The skybox itself is from 22769, although I had to replace the sand to fit it on my parcel and the furnishings are from End of Daze, Prime, Senzafine, Organica, Prism Furniture and Focus Poses, in no particular order (If you want to know more specifically which is which please feel free to contact me). All items are available at Around the World.

I just kinda played around with mixing and matching different regions and styles. Personally I’m happy with how it came out. But anyways don’t miss the chance to scoop these up for yourselves!

Wretched Memories

I never take pictures. I’m not sure why. It just never occurs to me. I know some people use them as an aid for memory but for the most part when I look at pictures that were taken of me or somewhere I’d been when I was very young I just draw a complete blank, I might as well be looking at a stranger.

I feel that way on Second Life quite a bit of the time as well, I’ll be glancing over my friends list or someone will message me out of the blue and most of these names spark no connection. They mean nothing so I give them generalities, greetings, kindness, but no invitations of intimacy.

It worries me sometimes, this singular ability I have to forget any and everything, my ability to let things make no mark on my mind, mostly unintentionally. I could be being lied to about anything before the age of 13 or so and I’d have no idea so long as they were convincing. Even past that age small details, specific events, are just gone.

Locations hold no recollection value for me either, I could step into a house that I’d lived in for most of my life,and it would stir nothing new within me, nothing that I could not recall outside its walls.

The only occasional exception to this is occasionally, and only very occasionally certain objects will have strong meaning to me, I’ll pick up a book, or a necklace and suddenly I’ll remember its providence. Though this usually does not extend to circumstances involving the item.

All photos were taken on the Sim Wretched Hollow “a dark, whimsical sim inspired by [a] love of Gothic and Neo Victorian things.”

Costume Ball

Long Dresses swirling, sweeping the floor, half seen figures conversing in the shadows, Music playing lending everything a muffled tone, the lights dimmed, candles flicker casting more darkness then they illuminate.

Masks concealing features, secret identites, secret liasons, anything is possible, anything could be anyone, the masquerade, the Costume Ball.

Dignity, refinement, unhampered by garish youth, a secret smile hidden behind a stoic facade, anger hidden behind mirth, One night of otherworldliness, one night of pure escape.

The Clock strikes, twelve chimes to end it all, to bring reality crashing back down upon their heads, scattering them to the winds, unmasking the, their faults and flaws hidden once more. The magic gone. They’re left to bear the consequence.

(I Just want to say that the Costume Ball event is utterly stunning and there are some amazing items on offer, well worth checking out before it’s too late!)

Cinema

Movies are collective dreams, waking sleep shared with those around you.

The best take you into a tiny fragment of a life, pulling you into the realities playing themselves out on the screen. Make you part of the story, an invisible spectator privy to their every secret moment.


What is it about this experience that keeps us buying into this experience? Keeps us shelling out for the overpriced treats and drinks? Keeps us coming back as the prices continue to climb, buying into the gimmicks watching movies in three dimensions we’ve already seen in two?

Why for some is the big screen so preferable to the small? Is it the sharing of the dream? Or the being surrounded by it, encompassed by sound.

Eyes fixed on the screen as the rest of the world and all its concerns disappear for two hours allowing us to take on someone else’s.

To watch them fix everything, tie up their worlds with neat little bows and live the storybook ending. Giving us the hope that one day we may be able to do the same.
