Revisiting Byron   Leave a comment

She walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that’s best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes;
Thus mellowed to that tender light
Which heaven to gaudy day denies ….

George Gordon, Lord Byron, “She Walks In Beauty”

Writing the previous article reminded me of a piece I wrote back in 2013, close to this time of the year, in fact (I published it on August 31). It had been about the time of the 2013 Black Fair, and Pure Poison … who were making clothing instead of shoes back then … had just released this lovely gown, all glittering sequins and a netting overgown that melted my buyer’s resistance into a puddle of goo. I just about titled that last article the same thing as six years ago; fortunately, I recalled the previous, and found another poem, by a poet I’ve loved for years, Edna St. Vincent Millay.

Hey, Daddy!   2 comments

Hey, listen to my story ’bout a gal named Daisy Mae
Lazy Daisy Mae
Her disposition is rather sweet and charming
At times alarming, so they say
She has a man who’s tall dark handsome, large and strong
To whom she used to sing this song

Hey, Daddy
I want a diamond ring
Bracelets and everything
Daddy, you oughta get the best for me

Hey, Daddy, gee
Don’t I look great in sables?
Clothes with Paris labels?
Daddy, you oughta get the best for me

Bay City Morning

I can tell you this, because I live just across the state, only maybe four counties away from the real-world Bay City — it don’t look this good right now. Freezing rain, snow, winds, and the temperature’s taking a plummet. It comes close to tempting me to take on Diana’s attitude about sunny skies. Not even the fur shrug I’ve got on would help much, and anyone who wears a mini in Michigan in January really should have their head examined.

If I Have To Do Winter ….

… then let me have a nice warm cashmere sweater. Something that’ll keep me warm even if the shoji is thrown wide open. This one may have a huge gap up the center of the back, but it does the job, it’s stylish, and I just keep the fireplace stoked.

Shovel Sand, Not Snow

My fellow bloggers all say they enjoy the snow. Me, I look forward to retiring one day so somewhere a tad warmer in the winter than State College, thank you. Not too warm; I don’t want to exchange the freezer of wintertime Pennsylvania for a broiler during the summer. (Who knows? maybe I’d better not worry about it and just live with what I get dealt.) Until I find the ideal place to live, though, at least I can find sandy winter beaches in Second Life. (Like this place, in the Cape Florida sim.)

SL Machinima Filmed for the Portuguese President’s Office

The above machinima is a piece filmed in world for the Office of the President of Portugal.  It’s a travelogue for a build in the Alma region, run by the Museu da Presidência da República Portuguesa (Museum of the President of Portugal).  If this machinima — excellently filmed, by the way; I haven’t seen many more smoothly shot — whets your appetite, teleport to the region and have a good look-see for yourself!  You’ll materialize in a skybox; transport down from there to admire the good works laid out for us by our Portuguese brothers and sisters.
