Rainy Days and Fridays

“The rain began again. It fell heavily, easily, with no meaning or intention but the fulfilment of its own nature, which was to fall and fall.”

Gods Country

It pierces my soul
This cold mountain air
It makes me feel whole
Like I can breathe again
Im high with the trees
They smoke and burn anew
The drops of morning air
They bring me to back to you

The Penny Arcade

Well folks ya know  what  time  it  is… it’s Arcade  time!
Nomad  released these fantastic  animated vintage arcade  games  for  the event and I  wanted  to  squeeze in as  many  as  I  could to give  you a gander…..did  ya  gander?
I  combined  them with  a lot of the older nomad  collections..along  with 8f8 and  a  few others to give it  an old penny arcade feel..hopefully I pulled it  off.
And  of course I  had  to give it  some life  and  added  the Black  Bantam Justin..cuz  he  is  cute and  brings  the whole picture  together.

Rehashing old memories

Rehashing Good Times

Hello all, The  Arcade  opens  in a  few  days, millions  of  Lindens  will  be  spent, thousands  of  pullers  elbow  will  be  reported that will  soon  be  forgotten forever. Those  memories will  soon be  forgotten…but  not  this  one.

Nomad  has  released some  fantastic items for this  round  of  the  Arcade.  that  brings  back  childhood memories like  it  was  yesterday…..for  some the memories are  still  fresh..like  road rash  or  carpet  burn,  like  changing  a  baby and  having  it pee  right  on ya.. like someone laughing while  your  getting  dragged by a  chain,  you  get my  point. So  on the  1st don’t  get dragged in  late. get  there  and  get  these  while they  are  hot..kinda  like  a  pissed  off  redhead.

Ps. No  Roxi’s  were  harmed  during  this  picture.

Country Living

Country Living
Hurray!  More  stuffs  from  The  Gacha Garden.  Didn’t  I tell you  there was some  fantastic Stuff  there this  round.I  am  trying to  show  you  all that  I  can Theres  just  sooooo much  of  it.
I  grew up  in a  “Country  Home”  well on the  weekends, my parents  were  separated  when  I was  very  young.  The  weekend  was  my  favorite  time  by  far.  While  during the  week  I  lived  in town  amongst  the  cement and  noise, the  weekends  were  spent  at my  Fathers.  He  owned  an  “Island” in the  middle  of the  Mississippi River. I  say ” island” because..well it was,  we were completely surrounded  by  water but  a  bridge  spanning the  river  was there  to  connect the  two  sides  of  the  outer  limits  of  town.   The  Army  Core  of  Engineers  built  up  the  natural  island   during  WWII and  used  it  for  a  training  ground giving  themselves access to  the island . The  base  was  one  side  of  the  river, the  city on the  other.  The  base  and  Island  were   decommissioned  in  the  early  60’s and  the land  sat abandoned for  years. My  father  and  his four  brothers  bought  the  island  in the 70’s and  they  used  it   for  a  weekend  getaway, After  my  parents were  divorced my  father  built  a  home  home there,  then  my  uncle.. it  was  heaven. You  could  not  see thru  the  tree’s and  brush and  as  far  as  my  little eyes  could see  was home.  The  island   was slowly  turned  into  that  dreamland  for  around 50  other  family’s as my  father  and  his  brothers  brought  in mobile  homes to rent  out..I  then  had  weekend  playmates to  share  my  woods  with.  I  could  go  on  and  on..but then  this  post would never  end.. for now I will  end  it  here.
Perhaps another day.

Full ServiceSo there  I was  minding  my  own  business and  saying   my  daily  prayers.. Listens  for  thunder. when  Roxi  called  and  said  she  needed  me. I,  being the  perfect  gentleman,  I  rushed  right  over to  the  address  she  gave  me. It was  on the  bad  side  of  town  full  of  seedy  motels  and  women  of  the  night  full of  seed. Much to  my  surprise I  found  her  in  one  of  the  seediest of  them  all, covered  in  seed!  As  you  can  tell  by  the  picture  I  was a  sad  puppy.  It  seemed  like  an  after party, the  crew  members were  clowning  around and  the  daym  director was  making  a  monkey  out  of  himself.    I thought  I was  about  to  get  us  both  out  of  there  when  suddenly  the  director   clanged  the  cymbals  together  and  yelled ”  ACTION!”…  whats  a  man  to  do…

That 70’s House

That 70's house.2

This  post  will be  another  short  but sweet  one ( Roxi always steals  my  ideas!) Seriously  though I  have  been up  for  over a day and  rest  for  my  eyes  is  sorely  needed..but..I wanted to bring you the  goodies.
When  I was  passed the UnKindness Candy Retro Set I was  taken  back to the 70’s and all  the  memories (  ok what  I can  remember  of them) of those days . They were meant to be  the  time  of  my  life and  I suppose they were..I  mean  if  you  consider  a  constant  fog and  sex with  strangers  and  not  having a care  in the world a good  time.
Many  remember the  70’s  for  the  styles, the  bell bottoms, hip huggers, huge  hats, white  peeps  in afro’s ( remind  me to tell you that story  later)  and  the  over all freedom that the  decade  brought. But.. when I rezzed these  out  it was  instant I remembered  all the  funky  textures and   colors  of the  day..and  it wasn’t all in my  mind..I swear.  The  pieces are  very  well  done..and  very  retro..and  I am  glad..hell  I  event put  my  long  hippy hair  on!
I  had  blogged the NOMAD Offering  to an opening  event  happening at Flux Sur Mer and  decided  to  go  check  the  event  out myself. I  am  very  glad I  did.  I spent  five  years in the  late  80’s (  yes a  different  decade.i actually  made thru the 70’s) in a  small town  in the  hill country  of  Texas and  remember  a cactus  garden I  had there…ok..it was the  only  thing that  freakin grew  in all that  daym  heat. The Junk offerings for the  event  drew  me  in and I  had  to  have  them. After  a  bit  of  investigating to make sure  that  the  cacti were  indeed the  exclusive I  walked  out  with  all  three. ( Thank you anonymous donor!)

Bedroom Adventures

Come Play!!

I  remember as  a  child living  in what at the  time seemed to be a  huge  house,  my  brother  and  I shared a room, as  did  my  two  sisters. it was an  amazing  house and the best  part  of  it was  this  little hidden  room.  A  small hatch door  opened  up in the  back of  our  closet( Small as  in you  had to crawl thru) that  had a  tunnel between the  walls that lead  to a small  store  room. it  was also connected  to every  other  room  on the  upper  floor so you  could  in essence go from  our  room, to  my  sisters  and  parents. The  main  door was  in my  parents  room yet  they  had  nothing  in there  to speak of.  One  day  me  and  my  brother ( I was.. I think around six at the  time , him seven) decided  it  was  there  for the  taking…and  ours. We  took every toy we  had and made  our  own  little  secret  playroom…no adults  allowed..sorry. We  had  countless adventures  in that  room and the  crawl spaces  leading  to  it,  from  pirates  to  banks and  robbers.  The  Lion, The Witch and  The  Wardrobe was  one  of  our  favorite  books at the  time so many  adventures indeed  happened  imagining that  our  little  doors opened  up to us a  place  where  adults  cannot  travel. Our  parents  divorced  shortly  after so we  ended  up living  with  my  grandmother on  my  mothers  side and  our  little  adventure  in the  house  ended. To this  day every chance I get  to go past that  magical  house I do. Sometimes   I sit  across  the  street at  a  now  long abandoned lot and  dream  about those  days..I  miss  them ….  miss  my  parents and  the  happiness  of that  place.

When Apple  fall started  showing  WIP’S of the  new  house  he was  working  on my  mind  wandered back to those  days and  let  me  relive  those  memories  even  more  vivid  than  before. I think  i  have  said  everything i could  ever  say  about the  main..I am  just  in awe.
I  recently  had the  privilege to become  one  of  the NOMAD  bloggers and  it’s an  honor. The  release  of the Sail  gotcha  could  not  come at a  better  time as  I was  reliving  all those childhood  memories and had a  huge  house  to fill. This  collection  is  amazing, the  sits  on the  rare  nook  has  sits  for  the  smaller  avi’s  in  sl, but  still..look great for  decor  for those  of  us that  don’t  have  children  here. I  also dug  out  almost  the  entire childhood toy  collection  from  them…because  they  to are  very  well made..you  just  can’t  go wrong with  this  creator. I’m telling  ya!
Digging  further  into my  vast  inventory  i  remembered having  the  Cheeky pea and  !bang  poses  offering  from the FGC a few  rounds  back and  knew  they  would  fit  this room..perfectly. Now I  had also remembered when  there was a  lighthouse  on  my  sim that  I went  to friday  and  punched the  entire collection  of  nautical  decor…wala…more  magic. Then  there was  Intrigue and  the  recent  offering  of the  bayside  friends ..it  doesn’t  get  any  better!

Detroit

Downtown

It’s  time  once again for a bloggity  blog!
The Kunst Detroit  set  is  available at Uber this  round and  is  deliciously dark. The  textures are  brilliant and the  items are  of  course  very  well made.  The have a  minimalistic industrial look and  feel and  I hope  I did them  justice by crowding the  room a  bit..but…thats  me.
I was  traveling around the  grid and was  at a store  when I saw the Bazar Stockholm-Bicycle and  knew I had to have  it  for this scene. after  a bit  of  investigating and asking  in the blogger support  group ( I actually saw the  stand  alone  version  of this) I was able  to figure  out where  it actually was… the  daym store. I  had  been  and  saw  it..but  it wasn’t  the stand  alone  I had  wanted..well  come  to  find  out..it  comes  in the  package  with the  wall decor  shown  here. I swear Roxi’s  blonde  roots affect  me! But, a  good thing  happened  on  my  many  trips  back and  forth  to the  store and asking  in group. I was  told  that  it  might  have  been  a Stockholm&Lima item so I  had  visited that store  as well and  found the  bicycle wheels wall decor. The  room was  filing  up quick.
Junk opened  up  a  new  sim this week and everything  is 1/2  off..so ya  know  I was  hitting  it,  There  is  also  free  gifts and  a  big  box  of  old  group gifts  for the taking. Ya  owe  it  to yourself  to  go have  a  look! While  I was there I  knew  I  had to purchase  the radiator. I  have  had  my  eye  on  it  for  a  while..and  ya  can’t  beat  1/2 off. The  thing  is  fantastic! Next thing  I did  was  dig  into my Hideki folder and started  rummaging thru it  and found  the  items  I chose  to  display.. ya  just  can’t  go wrong  with  Hideki.
