One Voice – REPOST

one voice. July 9 – 15. fundraiser info.

Curio’s Gala Phoenix is currently in the midst of legal issues which have resulted in her content being removed from the grid, pending the outcome of her legal battle. The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) process in Second Life requires that when there is legal action taken against your content, Linden Lab will remove it from the grid until a ruling is made. Gala’s fellow content creators have come together to host a fundraiser to help with the enormous amount of legal fees she will have to bare in order to fight these baseless claims.

The fundraiser will be held from July 9-15, with a blogger preview on July 8th.

Some participants include Flowey, BareRose, Black Lace, Belleza, Ingenue, Laq, Luck Inc, One Bad Pixel, Gos, Truth, Bent, Fawn, Cupcake, evolve, Glam Affair, ely, Lassitude & Ennui, Zanzibar, Adorkable, Ikon, League and many more.

This fundraiser is not only to help Gala Phoenix, but to also take a stand for the community of content creators, for many of whom SL is their main source of income. This could happen to any one of us, and it’s necessary that we stand up and fight back to ensure that it doesn’t.

Please contact Sophia Harlow or OMGWTF Barbecue if you’d like to participate as a content creator or blogger, and join the inworld group One Voice for updates and the LM when we open!

New Slang

“Gold teeth and a curse for this town were all in my mouth.
Only, i don’t know how they got out, dear.
Turn me back into the pet that i was when we met.
I was happier then with no mind-set.

And if you’d ‘a took to me like
A gull takes to the wind.
Well, i’d ‘a jumped from my tree
And i’d a danced like the king of the eyesores
And the rest of our lives would ‘a fared well.”

“New slang when you notice the stripes, the dirt in your fries.
Hope it’s right when you die, old and bony.
Dawn breaks like a bull through the hall,
Never should have called
But my head’s to the wall and i’m lonely.

And if you’d ‘a took to me like
A gull takes to the wind.
Well, i’d ‘a jumped from my tree
And i’d a danced like the kind of the eyesores
And the rest of our lives would ‘a fared well.”

What’s your digits? Take Two.

It’s interesting.. how much my look and shape and SL has changed in a year. Strawberry Singh has yet again posed the question: What are your digits? So here again I have disclosed mine and I can’t help but to laugh at my comparison from last year and how much my avatar has changed through the revolution of mesh.

Tada.. I think it’s terribly interesting. Check it out! DOOO IIIT!

Anyhow, I’m wearing lots of Zaara lingerie and jewelry. Slink Mesh Feet. Dela Mesh Hair and Glam Affair Leah Skin 01.

It’s friday, friday… fifty linden friday…

These shorts are mesh and cute an only 50 Lindens from Miel for Fifty Linden friday. These were my favorite this week you can pick between different colors and they have tons of options for what ever you wanna write on them

Join the Fifty Linden Friday group in world to see what stores are participating today.

Tokidoki

I guess I’ve been living under a rock as I did not realize Tokidoki has mesh now.. and wow it’s gorgeous. I love this sweater and pant combo. The bustier, while not mesh can also be found at Tokidoki as well.

Also, if you didn’t get the memo somehow.. Dela has been making mesh hair and its fantastic. So if you have been looking for a new mesh hair maker to browse, there you go. They have some awesome styles. I am also wearing some brand new mesh jewelry from Mandala, and I always love when Mandala has new releases. I spent way to much yesterday but I love what I came up with. Have a wonderful day!

A modern sort of princess..

I wont rave about how much I love the Fairy Tales 2012 event going on right now but lets just say you need to go there armed with a shopping list prepared to lose a ton of cash.

Like La Gyo.. how gorgeous is this head piece? Every piece of jewelry they have made for the event I bought up like hot cakes. Belleza has this skin that has the most gorgeous red lips and innocent blush – their version of Snow Whites skin is sensual and beautiful all at once. This top from Glam Affair shows one breast and the color almost matches my skin. If you are in the mood to enchant someone you have every advantage at your disposal.

“things you said that day
up on the 101
the girl had come undone
i tried to downplay it
with a bet about us
you said that-
you’d take it
as long as i could
i could not erase it

and i’m so sad
like a good book
i can’t put this day back
a sorta fairytale
with you
a sorta fairytale
with you”
Tori Amos “A Sorta Fairytale”

The things that I did not get at this event are on my hands an neck.. and panties. Zaara makes some of the most classic and beautiful items fit for a princess. I can always find something at Zaara that I adore. This hair is from Lelutka and these poses are from Adorkable.

Like a summer breeze

Yesterday, one of my favorite stores – Leezu! released this gorgeous summery mesh top that is sheer in some areas. I love the back to this top an well just everything about it. The Souchi top is a wonderful addition to any sl wardrobe and lets just say I’m growing ever fond of transparent mesh.


I am also wearing brand new hair from Lelutka, that you must go and get now! New Lily v1. Skin from Belleza which is gorgeous and just boosts the overall quality of your avatar. The earrings are from La Gyo and you can get them at the Fairy Tales Event 2012. The jeans and flip flops previously blogged by me are from Maitreya.

Have a lovely sunday!

Fairy Tales 2012

“In this life you have to be your own hero.

By that I mean you have to win whatever it is that matters to you by your own strength and in your own way.

Like it or not, you are alone in a forest, just like all those fairy tales that begin with a hero who’s usually stupid but somehow brave, or who might be clever, but weak as a straw, and away he goes (don’t worry about the gender), cheered on by nobody, via the castles and the bears, and the old witch and the enchanted stream, and by and by (we hope) he’ll find the treasure.”
― Jeanette Winterson, The PowerBook

“The stories we sit up late to hear are love stories. It seems that we cannot know enough about this riddle of our lives. We go back and back to the same scenes, the same words, trying to scrape out the meaning. Nothing could be more familiar than love. Nothing else eludes us so completely.”
― Jeanette Winterson, The PowerBook

Stand for love

Are you Gay? Straight? Queer? Bi? Questioning? if you answered yes to one of those questions and you care about love there is a movement through SL right now that you should check out and even participate in if you’d like.. It only has one requirement – Stand up for love.

I really adore this project and the photo gallery of many different people with all different sexual orientations standing up for the love that they live and believe in.

You

“Uninvited, the thought of you stayed too late in my head,
so I went to bed, dreaming you hard, hard, woke with your name,
like tears, soft, salt, on my lips, the sound of its bright syllables
like a charm, like a spell.”


“Falling in love
is glamorous hell; the crouched, parched heart
like a tiger ready to kill; a flame’s fierce licks under the skin.
Into my life, larger than life, beautiful, you strolled in.
I hid in my ordinary days, in the long grass of routine,
in my camouflage rooms. You sprawled in my gaze,
staring back from anyone’s face, from the shape of a cloud,
from the pining, earth-struck moon which gapes at me”

“and I open the bedroom door. The curtains stir. There you are
on the bed, like a gift, like a touchable dream.”
