Green Acres - Jeanie - Ruby, Don't Don't Take Your Love To Town - 01

Many of you probably heard today of the death of Kenny Rogers. The singer was most known today for his solo country singles from the time of “The Gambler” forward, and his duet with Dolly Parton, “Islands in the Stream.” But Kenny had a career dating from the Sixties, when he started with The New Christy Minstrels during the later part of the Folk Revival.

Rogers eventually left the Minstrels, along with a few other members, and founded The First Edition. The group was never a rock sensation, but they did score two good hits: “Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Was In” … and “Ruby, Don’t Take Your Love to Town,” the much more successful of the two.

Alsatian Kidd worked fast today, and put this photo together with help from another avatar. A fantastic tribute to an excellent singer.


Drift Away   Leave a comment

Day after day, I’m more confused
Yet I look for the light through the pourin’ rain
You know that’s a game that I hate to loose
And I’m feelin’ the strain, ain’t it a shame

Oh, give me the beat boys and free my soul
I wanna get lost in your rock ‘n’ roll and drift away
Oh, give me the beat boys and free my soul
I wanna get lost in your rock ‘n’ roll and drift away

Daughters of the Nile

One of the stories I work on periodically is entitled Isis’ Daughters, and I’ve used Second Life to shoot illustrations for it. Morgan was willing to help me reshoot the cover photo, as it needed revising (as well as updating to newer goodies such as materials). And, luckily for me, the same place I shot the original photo was still available! This is a much better piece than the original, I’d say ….

Your Words Are Meaningless II

Dee Dee Deepdene is probably better known for her colorful erotica photographs; but she does do other work as well. Jemmy sent me the link to this piece … an excellent combination of pose, color and post work that simply has to be recognized.

Cyberinas

Photomanipulation is something I’ve rarely taken the time to practice. And that’s a sad thing, because some of the best photos I’ve seen in 11 years of Second Life have passed through a paint program over and beyond simple cropping. tralala uses a nice bit of post work on this shot, over and beyond the basic monochromatic effect. She appears three times here — and it would have been six times, except for the size of the photo; but you can insert the proper image yourself at the right of the composition.
