Traditions   Leave a comment

 

4754 C. E.

Among the traditions that had held on in show business, the Green Room was one of the most persistent.  Nobody knew for sure why the room set aside as an actors’ lounge was called “the Green Room,” and Ariel Sherman had heard of many rooms that weren’t painted or otherwise decorated in green, but there the name was.  And when they had built the original Land of Fantasy Theatre out of the old pleasure house, Ariel had included a Green Room — though it was a touch more open to other people than just the performers in the revue — and insisted it be “correctly” decorated with green walls.  Though she doubted few theatres had ever gone in for expensive draped green satin wallpaper; but, with the seed credit the cyborgs of Videra had to start with, why not splurge a little?

She did the same thing some ten years later, when The Land of Fantasy added a supper club to the front of the theatre building.  Again, walls hung in green satin, gentle holo-abstracts and other artwork, and comfortable furniture provided relaxation for performers preparing to go on before the club’s patrons.  And, as the club’s first performer — a change from starring in the main revue for so long — there Ariel was, breaking in the room … with a nasty case of stage nerves.  Why in hell do I put myself through this? she wondered in her mind as she dragged hard on her cigarette holder.  Years of performing six nights a week, multiple interview appearances on the ‘screen, even two virt-vids to my credit by now, and I still get stage fright before an opening.

Watering Hole

at-the-blarney-stone

They say it’s always 5:00 somewhere, and we chose our five o’clock to go to The Blarney Stone.  Harper tells me “the Stone” is one of the longest running pubs in Second Life; looking at her old posts and the pictures, I believe her!  I think it’s gotten a little more gentrified over the years, but it’s easier to find good seats now, from the looks of the old tables and chairs.

Which is a good thing if you’re wearing these shoes!  Both of us have gotten a taste for extreme heels lately, and Lori Novo (shoutout!) had these on her blog in a recent piece.  We also both loved the Meva Cubes dresses from the current round of Cosmopolitan (rush out to the place if you haven’t yet; remember, they cycle stock every 2 weeks).  The boots are HUD-controlled, so there are more colors than just gold and silver.  We decided to match the strips of studs on our dresses, instead of the dresses themselves.

You’ve seen our skins and you can’t see our makeup that well in this shot — the only one I took, actually — so I’ll just hit the high points below.  There’s a larger photo on Flickr, in PNG, at wallpaper size, so you can download it and look at stunning beauty every day if you like, lol.

Between the Shadow and the Soul

LEA 8 wallpaper 2

I do not love you as if you were salt-rose, or topaz,
or the arrow of carnations the fire shoots off.
I love you as certain dark things are to be loved,
in secret, between the shadow and the soul.

I love you as the plant that never blooms
but carries in itself the light of hidden flowers;
thanks to your love a certain solid fragrance,
risen from the earth, lives darkly in my body.

I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where.
I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride;
so I love you because I know no other way

than this: where I does not exist, nor you,
so close that your hand on my chest is my hand,
so close that your eyes close as I fall asleep.

Pablo Neruda, One Hundred Love Sonnets, XVII

A Last Bit of Sunshine

erratic trisha 1

“One must maintain a little bit of summer, even in the middle of winter.” — Henry David Thoreau

The merchants at the monthly Uber event are giving us a last splash of summer before we settle into coats and sweaters for the winter.  The cold season comes fast and hard in Second Life — one day your sim may be sunshiny and all flowers; the next, you’re blanketed in white.  Why not find somewhere to take in a little last-minute color to tide you over until spring returns?

Hauling Out the Old — What a Morning!

What a morning 1

Yeesh1, what a morning this was!!!  It felt like it took me a century to find somewhere to pose; and, frankly, I found this location by fumbling my way to it.  The nice thing is that I haven’t been to the Cheeky Tiramisu Café since New Year’s a few years ago, so I haven’t done it very much.  But, once I pronounced it satisfactory for a second visit, I decided to flop down for a rest before getting to work.

L is for — Lazuri

L is for Lazuri 1

Lazuri is definitely one of the name jewelry houses these days, and Zuri Lyric gets better and better with the large stage pieces she specializes in.  This set, which Zuri calls Precise Frimon, consists of a script-driven suite:  heavy necklace, earrings, rings and bracelets for both hands and a set of individual hair pins (which are shaped similar to the pendants on the earrings; they don’t show up in this shot).  Colors are controllable via the menus, and give you a wide range of possibilities to decorate yourself with.

L is for Lazuri 2

These jewels deserved more than a simple one-shot, so I dressed myself up some and trotted out another character from my stories:  I call her Dannta ‘niShantaro, and she’s from the planet Elenia.  Any road, I added to the Lazuri suite a set of prim nails that have some flower or flower-related elements, and dressed myself in a party outfit:
