Stormy Weather

Keeps rainin' all the time....

Don’t know why there’s no sun up in the sky
Stormy weather since my man and I ain’t together
Keeps raining all the time, the time
Life is bare, gloom and misery everywhere
Stormy weather, just can’t get my poor self together
I’m weary all the time, the time
So weary all the time

When he went, you went away, the blues walked in and met me
If he stays away, ol’ rocking chair will get me
All I do is pray, the Lord above will let me walk in the sun once more

Can’t go on, everything I had is gone
Stormy weather since my man and I ain’t together
It’s raining all the time

One of the finest singers the Real World has known passed away a few days ago.  Miss Lena Horne had known both sides of the blues, the pain and the delight, in her 92 years.  I think she emerged on the high side at the end.

Her signature song, of course, was “Stormy Weather,” and that’s what I based these photos on.  But if you want to hear the woman herself, just click on play….

Photos taken in Creamshop region

Return to Creamshop

Spotted at New World Notes:  this lovely 5-minute machinima of one of the small jewels of the Grid, Creamshop region.  Ham asks, “What feelings go through you when you visit Creamshop?”  To which I would reply, “An appreciation of its beauty, along with a melancholy caused by the ongoing drench of the rain there.”  SAZAE Yoshikawa has designed a jewel that has survived the OpenSpace debacle of 2008.

Shopping for Vinyl in Creamshop

How many have been to Creamshop region?  It’s a struggle to move around in there sometimes, as it’s an Openspace region (I thought I was going to get away from writing about these, but….)  I’m reluctant to post a landmark, but I’m trusting people won’t flock there, so to speak.  Any road, if you do go there, you’ll find an experience that beggars words to describe.  Designed with wonderful artistry and craftsmanship, the rainy moodiness of Creamshop somehow fills you with longing and joy at the same time.

Of course, the eternal drench pouring down from the skies, as eternal as the Dantëan rains of the third circle of the Inferno, can get oppressive at some point.  When I visited the other day, I ran for some shelter — being careful to watch out for the cabs in the street — into a small record store across the way from the actual Creamshop store.  In there, it was fascinating to go digging through the shelves and bins for goodies.  If I ever get a stereo capable of playing vinyl — and if the owners of the region keep it going — it might be nice to jump back and pick up some titles.

Creamshop store itself has some nice stuff, and I’m wearing some of it in these pictures.  The one problem I could have is with the muffler, which you have to edit by script.  I’ll experiment with it in future, but I’m fighting for cycles with the other half in Real Life; Kit’s (ahem) acquiring a few lectures at the moment.  So I’ll reserve judgment on that aspect for now.  In any case, enjoy!
