  1. This was my "Demo" event earlier this week ;-)
  2. Dancing with my Partner at Drama Libre's "Big Top" event :-)
  3. The video for this has a REALLY long instrumental into.....so...lyrics..... The Stranger by Billy Joel Well, we all have a face That we hide away forever And we take them out And show ourselves when everyone has gone Some are satin, some are steel Some are silk and some are leather They're the faces of a stranger But we'd love to try them on Well, we all fall in love But we disregard the danger Though we share so many secrets There are some we never tell Why were you so surprised That you never saw the stranger Did you ever let your lover See the stranger in yourself Don't be afraid to try again Everyone goes south every now and then You've done it Why can't someone else You should know by now You've been there yourself Once I used to believe I was such a great romancer Then I came home to a woman That I could not recognize When I pressed her for a reason She refused to even answer It was then I felt the stranger Kick me right between the eyes Well, we all fall in love But we disregard the danger Though we share so many secrets There are some we never tell Why were you so surprised That you never saw the stranger Did you ever let your lover See the stranger in yourself Don't be afraid to try again Everyone goes south every now and then You've done it Why can't someone else You should know by now You've been there yourself You may never understand How the stranger is inspired But he isn't always evil And he is not always wrong Though you drown in good intentions You will never quench the fire You'll give in to your desire When the stranger comes along
  4. DJing an event where the costume theme is "Demos"...... that was fun :-)
  5. I met my partner in 2005 here in SL.....we're ancient as active SL couples go :-) I was on my original avatar and shopping for more stuff to wear (I was active in the *original* Amazon Nations; Freelon & Themiskaya) and the whole thing started innocently enough with her asking me "where did you find that?" Fast forward almost 12 years and we have been together for a LOT of tumultuous stuff in RL as well as SL - never once making contact in RL outside of the expected email-flood :-) During that time I've chatted her up more than anyone else as life evolved; our RL children both graduated and moved off into the world, RL friends passed away, my little brain-injury and the Recovery, careers changing, being in different countries and from vastly different backgrounds, spending endless hours clubbing, escorting, diving into in the RP community the SL BDSM-scene (we have a very "mature" relationship), building, running a club, helping to manage sims and being pretty much the only constant for each other in a digi-verse that changes at the drop of a pixel-brassiere.... The best way I know to sum it up is by morphing a quote from Deadpool....."Her crazy matches my crazy.."
  6. With GoT........once I heard that it was a Story about people who disliked and feared Winter.....I sort of went "meh"...... I already know all about that; arthritis y'know.....
  7. Linden Lab: "OK, who hired Amanda's cat as a programmer..... dammit? The login server has been "trying to catch the red dot" for two hours now...."
  8. I have happily managed to avoid seeing ANY.... I'm also evil enough to make someone babbling about "White Walkers" uncomfortable by asking; "Excuse me.......but doesn't that sound mildly racist?"
  9. Well, my plan for the day started out like this..... But it ended up more like this..... Kind of a let-down........
  10. Also, avoid giggling on-air a lot......... a little is ok......but a LOT....... ...sounds like this..
  11. Sometimes you have to be forceful to make the thread stop.......like....pepper-spray the settings or something.....
  12. I'll say this; I enjoy chatting with this group :-) The new forums have been a vast improvement over the old free-for-all, and I appreciate the effort that goes into keeping them that way. Y'all are awesome :-)
  13. The latest forum incarnation has been a great improvement from the old ; "let's run off the new people" days, but some of that has still been cropping up occasionally.
  14. My Partner knows all about me as well Skell - I have more focused time spent chatting with her in SL over the last 11 years than probably any other one person in my LIFE (RL or SL). When I had my little health crisis, she was my security blanket and the *only* person I told about how scared I really was (can't let the children pick up on that after all)... But for everyone else, I offer up general details and not many specifics. My reasons relate to a specific incident where someone accidentally DID twig to my RL information (someone I knew in both RL and SL let it slip) and the flowers started showing up at my former workplace..... Couple that with some bothersome stuff I have left over from my time in uniform - and yes, I like to keep some slight distance from anyone who isn't my Partner.....if after 11+ years she was going to show up on my doorstep with a machete and an attitude , it would have happened long ago :-)
  15. I would slightly disagree. I encounter people expressing parts of who they are that - for whatever reasons - they cannot in RL. IMO that is self-expression, not putting on a role like an actor playing a part.
  16. Create some stock sound-bites that you can drop into the que when you're verbally running low on content. I like gag "commercials" a lot :-) I have one for a combination Mortuary/Pub that usually gets a laugh when the "stop in for a Cold One" punchline hits......
  17. Welcome back! Unfortunately, many places -do- place an emphasis on Voice - especially if you DJ, do erotic dance or escort. Unfortunately, SL places less emphasis on Textual Relations now that SL Voice and Skype are easy options. If you still want to dance, my first thought would be to apply at places where no one will care about voice-verification. That would mean places catering to the gender-fluid community. I am not sure if we're allowed to call out places by name on the forum (some consider that advertising), but when I get home from work and into SL I can IM you at least one place that one of my oldest friends on SL thinks a lot of. Its ironic :-) Many residents will tell you that SL has no issues with gender, but a whole bunch of places and people still wanna hear you speak before they'll hire you :-)
  18. SL has as many jerks as RL - only here you can mute/de-render them :-) I get bothered at people who keep persistently ignoring my "I don't talk about RL" statements, but over time I've gotten pretty good at giving them the "move along please".... ....I have friends here who are worth having, so dealing with the unrealistic "what, this isn't Facebook/Tindr?" types is just the price I'm willing to pay.
  19. I never let any guy's drooling stop me from dancing with whom I want to :-) They'll just have to contain their jealosy........
  20. I've seen M+M in clubs that are not strictly non-Hetero, but its not common IMO Girls dance with girls (if they're not INTO girls) because it turns guys on (in some cases)..........the male of the species is visually stimulated.
  21. It occurs to me that Me + Fire usually ends badly....... but here I am :-)
  22. I have fond memories of discovering a glitch in one of my big brother's C64 games. He was the big war game and aircraft jock and was really -battling- this game. Its objective was to fly a B1 bomber somewhere and blow up the Bad Guys and he kept getting shot down....a lot..... I discovered that if I set the altitude to 1', I would make it all the way to Moscow and was invulnerable. I still remember him sputtering; "But....it's cheating if you DRIVE to Moscow!" Wish I could get some more of those times :-(
