[#643] Groove Is In The Heart

 

DJ Soul was on a roll
I’ve been told he can’t be sold
He’s not vicious or malicious
Just de-lovely and delicious

Deee-Lite, ♫Groove Is In The Heart♫

 

From time to time I do blog posts that are intended to be goofy for the purpose of trying to balance out some of the emotion. I have no real reason why I don’t do it more often but I should but it seems like some of the songs I hear that drive feelings tend to win out over the more amusing stuff. I’ve got two pose sets and a decor item to share in what I’m considering to be a fairly simple and bare bones entry.

Taking pictures where I’m the focus is mainly what this blog is about but of course from time to time I have Brenna join me or my brother Lucky will sit in for a photo (thought it’s been a while dude!). This time I decided to do something super different and have my sister, Xandria and her guy Taka get in front of the lens. It was really nice of them to take the time to pose for me even if Xandria photobombed me with an animesh clown (don’t think I wasn’t going to out you!). But all the jokes aside it was a fun time and the results of the session were satisfactory.

Image Essentials has two new pose sets available at Vintage Fair, “Boogie Nights” and “Get Down” (see a theme there?) Trying to find attire that would have accurately fit these poses would have been difficult as the event itself didn’t have much in the way of hippie chic or 70’s wear. There are clubs that have theme nights which most people don’t dress to match it so that’s the idea I went with for this.

Each of these pose sets have five poses (each one with a mirrored version) depicting various groovy dance moves. Cycling through these gave me a chuckle because I can just imagine the actual dances in my head from different movies with some kind of funky backing track. As far as vintage goes, these poses hit the mark.

The sign you can see in the scene is Silence’s “Retro Arrow Sign”. I am using the “Dance” version in Red/Yellow (it also comes in Blue/Orange and Pink/Blue) as well as other sayings in these colors such as “Drink”, “Eat”, “Games” and “Live Music”. For anyone that has a club and wants a little vintage feel then this sign would add a little extra something to the decor.

 

Life I love you, all is groovy.

[#625] We Only Come Out At Night

 

We only come out at night, we only come out at night
The days are much too bright
We only come out at night

Smashing Pumpkins, ♫We Only Come Out At Night♫

 

Let the Pose Fair madness begin! My last post for the month of April featured but one of the many great pose items from the fair and I’m starting (It’s gonna be) May with another. Tomorrow the fair will open to the general public and everyone will be wanting to get in on all the fun and creativity that can be had.

The hardest part once again is that I didn’t have a soundtrack for this post before I took my photo and that lends sometimes to going through tons of different things that I personally own as well as scouring YouTube for possibilities and I narrowed it down to about three but I’m going to keep the ones I didn’t use to myself because they will potentially be used in other future posts.

Salacity’s contribution that I found to be really cool is a window backdrop complete with curtains, ledge and a surround which can be changed between three different scenes (midnight, stormy and sunrise) and I did try them all as I was initially setting up my shot but much like the song I chose, I went with midnight. In reality I tend to be a night owl and as such most of my creativity happens during the hours that most people are asleep. I paired it with the male pose set that is meant to be a companion of the backdrop; there is also a female version and as a whole I really think all of these releases could inspire a lot of great photos.

Salacity – Window Seat Backdrop

  • Original Mesh
  • 3 different backrounds (midnight, stormy, sunset)
  • Compatible with Window Seat Female and Male pose sets
  • Exclusive to Pose Fair starting 05/04/19

Salacity – Window Seat Male Poses

  • Bento Poses
  • 5 different poses (mirrors included)
  • Exclusive to Pose Fair starting 05/04/19

A new event just started today called Anthem and one of the proprietors of it is Mikel Monk who is also associated with The Men’s Department, one of my all time favorite events since the beginning of such things to exist. I felt like I couldn’t go wrong trying to get in there during the middle of the night (even if it might get me a talking to). From what I did see, there are lots of great items and a few of which came home with me so you’ll likely see them this month unless I forget and then it’s a tragedy.

The event also marks a new release by my longtime brand partner, Cold-Ash, who is proudly bringing to consumers the “TANNER Open Hoodie”. When the notice came in of the new item and I saw what it was, I am not going to lie I became really excited. Spring and the beginning of Fall are probably my second favorite times of year outside of summer weather wise. I can go out and not have a clunky winter jacket on and normally am wearing a hoodie of some sort (I own many of them rl).

The Fatpack of Tanner comes with two options for the hoodie (with or without shirt option) and I should have been a bit bolder and gone without the shirt but at the same time I didn’t feel the photo deemed for that. There are plenty of basic color choices between both the hoodie itself and shirt to make a lot of different combinations and I think that will be enough of a selling point in itself because if there are a lot of people out there like myself, I am a fan of choice and to have many is by far the best option.

Cold-Ash – TANNER Open Hoodie (FatPack)

  • Original Mesh
  • HUD Contains 15 hoodie colors & 9 shirt colors
  • 2 versions (With or Without Shirt)
  • Fitted for Belleza (Jake) and Signature (Gianni) mesh bodies
  • Exclusively at Anthem until 05/30/19

Finalizing my wardrobe are two items from Native Urban (one of which a current release, the other a previous release that I really have wanted to wear). The “Guetta Snkrs” are currently at Access for another few days so for anyone who really likes a good classic hi-top shoe should check this out ASAP but do not worry if you can’t make it to the event, they’ll be placed in the store shortly after it ends. The amount of colors and faces you can change are everything I mentioned earlier in my writing. Styling for this shoe is almost infinite and I could wear it just about every day with a different color scheme and never have the same one unless I wanted to.

Going with a casual look as I am wearing a hoodie, I went with the “Wezol Joggers”. I knew that doing it this way would make it easier for me to wear the hi-tops without clipping and it worked well with what I am wearing on the upper part of my body. My goal is that if I can make something work without having to make slight edits (because I want to ensure the integrity of the item remains intact) and can achieve it then I’m a happy guy.

Native Urban – Guetta Snkrs (All Colors)

  • Original Mesh
  • HUD includes 25 colors with 11 customizable parts
  • Unisex Item
  • Fitted for Belleza (Jake), Maitreya (Lara) and Signature (Gianni) mesh bodies
  • Exclusive to the Access event until 05/07/19

During the course of this month I’ll be covering Pose Fair obviously and be throwing in bits and pieces of events that I’ve gone to and shopped. I’m looking forward to the kinds of things that will come from this as I recall mentioning that poses are one of the most important things to a photographer. They help tell the stories sometimes more than the decor or clothing we have on and around us.

I also want to give a thank you to everyone behind The Men’s Jail event from the owners, to the blogger manager as well as all the designers I’ve had the pleasure of featuring during my time as part of the event. It was invaluable to me and hopefully once I’m able to have more time we’ll be able to work together again.

[#586] Slow

But it’s you who brought me here
You, through all these years

Grouplove, ♫Slow

Today is the last day for the Pose Fair and I have two posts that before the end of the day that will complete my coverage for the event. Overall I feel like posts I made with the poses have been some of my most inspired work lately. A third (maybe more like half) of my photos have been done with Brenna who has been really helpful in this whole process. In the past I never really did many couples poses because of timing or just ideas but whenever I ask her if she wants to do it there is never a complaint.

We came together to use a pose from a store that I am not familiar with. Lyrium Poses’ “Right Here” is a sweet couples pose that the name could not be better stated. During the process of taking this photo there was no place I wanted to be other than with her and I hope that the finished picture reflects just that. The closeness that this pose depicts really gave me a feeling as if time was standing still.

I’ll be keeping an eye out for future releases from Lyrium now that I know that I like what they’ve put up for sale at the fair.

Lyrium Poses – Right Here

  • Bento enabled couples pose (bento viewer needed)
  • Linked poseballs (can be edited to adjust for avatar difference)
  • Exclusive to Pose Fair until 01/26/19

My outfit is fairly simple and I combined one of the things from my closet (the “Ethan Tank” by Salt & Pepper and the “Steampunk Skinny Jeans” by Joker’s Asylum). I truly like the work done Joker’s Asylum and have purchased several items from the store in the past and I am friends with the owner so by featuring his work, I am showing my support the best I can. The tank goes well with just about anything and I like that it isn’t one of the thin strapped type of tanktops as in real life they bug me (not sure why but they do).

Brenna has been doing a lot more shopping then I have as of late and I’m kind of slacking when it comes down to it but I’ve been having a good time with some of the clothes I already have. It’s better to show that I still enjoy them instead of just blogging them when they are new and never looking at them again or ultimately tossing them away.

We both did our fair share of shopping at the new A+ event that just opened recently which has a diverse selection of items in just about every genre type you can think of. Her dress, the “Office Dress” by Kaithleens is really nice and is a proper attire with just that little hint of sexy going on. Personally I like that she chose the pink version because as nice as black would have been it would be too plain and dare I say boring.

As I write this it’s pretty late in the evening/early morning for some and I am considering just setting this up to post later in the morning but I am going to throw caution to the wind and get out there and then those who are enjoying their weekend will rise from their sleep and have something to look at. One of the things I enjoyed doing before I became a blogger was to check my favorite sites the moment I settled in at the computer after breakfast (or sometimes lunch).

On that note it is time for me to leave you with the credits to go get some shut eye so I can get started on my final post for Pose Fair. This has been a really fun thing to blog with and I am looking forward to the February “Pop-Up” Valentine’s Edition of Pose Fair to visit more great poses to take pictures of Brenna and I with to put in frames in our home.

Take care until next,

B

P.S. Thank you, Lucky, for allowing us to borrow your home for this photo shoot!!!

[#583] I Wanna Dance With Somebody

Clock strikes upon the hour
And the sun begins to fade
Still enough time to figure out
How to chase my blues away

Bootstraps, ♫I Wanna Dance With Somebody
Originally Performed By Whitney Houston

One of the things that excites me about Pose Fair is all the ideas that come from the items official bloggers receive to help promote the stores and the event itself. I am taking full advantage of this by doing something fun with the Vol. 1 Male and Female Dance Poses by CuCa Poses. From the exact moment the ad was released I had a solid idea cemented in my head.

It is an added bonus that “All Night Long Bacdrops” by illuZion are both gifts to visitors to Pose Fair. The poses and the backdrop that I am using in black (pink is also available) work hand in hand to provide a great scene for club life. My days of going to clubs have long since past (though the desire to go to them when I could was fairly low) but at least it is much different in the virtual world.

My first thought going into using these poses was that I wanted to showcase both the male and female ones and gives me a reason to include Brenna. She has a great style and could easily be a blogger if she wanted to be but I respect that it is not her thing; at least I can ask her to pose for me and she does it without hesitation and offers inspiration that is valuable.

Each of these sets has 6 poses with an added bonus pose for purchasers of the FATPACKS with mirror versions included also. I had fun going through the sets to choose the two best poses for Brenna and I to ensure that our motions look as fluid as possible.

CuCa Poses – Male Dances Vol. 1 / Female Dances Vol. 1

  • Bento enabled poses (bento viewer needed for proper use)
  • Pose Stand and Static Poses in each pack.
  • Single poses sold individually as well as in a FATPACK option
  • 6+1 Exclusive FATPACK Poses (Mirrors included)
  • Vol. 2 sets are also available
  • Exclusive to Pose Fair until 01/26/19

Another sure thing when I began planning this scene is I knew what song would be the theme for it but I decided to go with a twist. “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” was the only true choice that I could go with and it’s one of the songs that put Whitney Houston on the map but I decided to use the cover version by Bootstraps which pays tribute to the original in an amazing way.

Either version would have been great to use but going with the more recent version was easier to decide on because everyone knows Whitney’s original version and I wanted to share with readers the cover because I am a fan of Bootstraps and if others find his work through me and enjoy it then it puts a smile onto my face.

There are very few things that are better than discovering new music.

For the ladies who love gachas (and I can safely say that many as well as us fellas do) there is the {Date Night} dress set from Vanilla Bae. If you are not familiar with this store and it would surprise me if there was someone who didn’t, they offer clothing that through scripting can be removed to show what I would politely refer to as unmentionables. They do offer unscripted versions for women that are not into that kind of attire. This set includes several versions of the Corset Dress which Brenna is wearing the short version (there is a much longer one with a slit along the side). The two RARE versions are both of the dresses in the adult version in all the colors offered, however, they are called Lootbox 1 and 2 because of the event they are in (which is called LOOTBOX).

On that note I think I have left you with enough information on this blog entry and look forward to the next few as I start to wind down my coverage for Pose Fair. This has been a very productive month for myself and the blog and if recent developments pan out (vague I know) there will be even more exciting things to share with all of you.

Keep your heads up and also the conversation (topic doesn’t matter!) It has been my honor and I will be back again very soon with another installment.

All the best,

B

[#578] Addicted

I don’t mind pretending I’m someone else, whoever you want me to be
As long as I’m inside you, you’ll never want me to leave
It’s the way you want it

The Blank Theory, ♫Addicted

In my last blog I peeled a few layers off of what my normal blog style is usually and with that mindset, I chose to take it a little further even and get Brenna involved in the process; she was absolutely encouraging and wonderful with this process as I push my boundaries even further. With the help of RM Poses, we were able to explore uncharted territory in my photography and blogging portfolio.

“Strawberries For You” is a couples pose that shows a sensual side of feeding your lover the tasty fruit. I find that this pose is classy and has great views in several different directions, which I’ve explored as well during the photo session for this blog post (and why wouldn’t I all things considered). I have to make a note to those who might be interested in this pose because of the fact that with how it is set up there is some adjusting that will need to be done especially if both avatars are of different heights. It’s a fantastic pose and I’m glad I got the opportunity to be able to use it.

RM Poses – Strawberries For You Pose and Prop

  • Bento enabled couples pose (bento viewer required for use)
  • Pose stand with built in tray of strawberries and mouth strawberry
  • Exclusively @ Pose Fair until 01/26/19

Also like my last blog I have a few more items from The Men Jail event to just about wrap up my coverage for January. With showing more skin if that is what I’m going to do then why not show ink on my pixels as I do have some in the real world but not as much as I can have in the virtual landscape. “The Demon Horror” Tattoo by KAOS Tattoos is definitely an interesting look and lives up to its name.

With tattoos I tend to usually only apply the light versions but it is also nice to have the medium and dark options as well just in case I were to ever change my mind. I just have a weird way with tattoos and the dark (or fresh as I refer to it as) option just doesn’t really translate virtually as it does in the real world. It isn’t the fault of any tattoo makers it is just what they have to work with. This is a creative design and I could also see wearing it during a role-play situation where a character might be into a darker lifestyle.

Many times I have said that I don’t blog accessories like necklaces or bracelets often but I could not pass up the opportunity to take a look at the “Dan Bracelet” by NaaNaa’s. It is a beaded style with all the things I happen to like (such as skulls and a cross) which given the overall theme of this post makes a lot of sense as “Addicted” by The Blank Theory serves as the soundtrack to this post. I feel like it could be interpreted many ways as how the addiction party plays out but I’m going with the human interaction aspect of it.

KAOS Tattoo – Demon Horror

  • Belleza, Maitreya, Omega and SLink Appliers included
  • 3 tones to choose from (Light, Medium and Dark)
  • Exclusively @ The Men Jail until 01/28/19

NaaNaa’s – Dan Bracelet

  • Original mesh
  • Resizable
  • 5 metals changeable via HUD
  • Left and right bracelets included
  • Exclusively @ The Men Jail until 01/28/19

Modulus is once again back as my hair stylist with their latest, the “Bailey Hair” that is currently at Equal10. There are a lot of quality events that Modulus releases products at but I think Equal10 is truly the most visual appealing because of the cool retro 80’s layout. I could be a bit biased because that is something I know a little bit about.

This is a short to medium length hair swept off to the sides (which you can choose with both left and right versions of the hair). It’s also nice that their are little flyaway strands which is something I can tell you Modulus excels at and it’s not flat hair that doesn’t have any kind of action or movement because who wants that? On top of that the brand gets better and better all the time which keeps its core base of loyal shoppers coming back with more joining the family every day.

Modulus – Bailey Hair

  • 100% original “nex-gen” alpha mesh
  • 5 Color HUD packs + integrated tinting within HUD
  • 40 color FATPACK also available
  • Left and right mirror versions
  • Exclusively @ Equal 10 until 02/05/19

Some other notes to cover is that Brenna has a few event release items as well which consist of the “NaturalLite Lashes #2” by Mai Bilavio and “Glow” tattto by Speakeasy that can both be found at the Access event. For the fellas that might have significant women in their lives I can definitely recommend the “Simplicity Lingerie” by Moon Amore that is waiting to be had at Collabor88. This is certainly an attention grabber that any lingerie connoisseur will want to have in their collection.

Lastly, with the amount of blogs I have posted this month, it should give a lot of reasons to go hit the hot events and take a look at what is new across the grid. If I were a regular customer, I would certainly be browsing all of these events hoping to find fun things. On that note I think it is time to wrap things up and get things set for the next blog which I’m not sure what I’m going to do yet as I can now actively blog any item from the Pose Fair I choose so that gives me a lot of options and perhaps way too many ideas.

Keep the conversations going and perhaps maybe I started some new ones just now!

[#563] Play A Song For Me

And if you hear vague traces of skippin’ reels of rhyme
To your tambourine in time
It’s just a ragged clown behind
I wouldn’t pay it any mind
It’s just a shadow you’re seein’ that he’s chasing

Bob Dylan, ♫Mr. Tambourine Man

While it’s been some time since I last posted a blog with a pose set from Image Essentials, it was time to get back in the saddle and show some love to a brand that has shown their loyalty and love for what I do in many ways. In the upcoming year I will make sure that this brand sees that loyalty returned in whatever way I can possible.

Before I get into anything I want to give a shout out to the owner and creator of Image Essentials, Kay Weston. Right now she’s on a small hiatus from creating to take care of some real world things and I wish her nothing but the best and hope that she’s back to doing what she enjoys and that many of us on the grid enjoy in her work.

I‘m going to start out with a prop and pose set by Image Essentials named “Tambourine”. From the moment I saw it thoughts of the song “Mr. Tambourine Man” came floating into my head and most people are most familiar with the version that was recorded by The Byrd’s but I decided on the original by Bob Dylan as it seems to speak to me more and is far less played compared to The Byrd’s.

Each tambourine includes a pose that is triggered when you wear it and also has twp ribbons that can be recolored by a script inside with 4 different colors in which to choose from (Blue, Gold, Green and Red). The colors can be mixed and also matched depending on the desire of person using it. Though the best part of it is that it is intended for female avi’s but I have shown that males can also use it without any major adjustments unless the avi is aggressively muscled.

I greatly enjoyed trying out the different poses in this set until I found the exact one that fit visually with what I wanted to do; I highly encourage a stop to the Image Essentials store for this prop and pose as well as many other great ways to create impactful photography/art.

Image Essentials Tambourine Prop and Pose Set:

  • 5 poses in set
  • Wear mesh tambourine to activate pose
  • Can be used as unisex
  • Available now @ the Image Essential in-world store

Moving from Poses to Hair, the Access Event is the place where the “Ash” hair by Modulus can be found and one might say that it has a slight similarity to the “Owen” hair that I recently blogged but I can tell you that they do have their differences, the most obvious is length as “Ash” is a little longer in how it hangs down on the face. There are varying little wisps as well that make them able to be told apart from the other.

The shorter and mid length hairs that Modulus has been releasing lately has me thinking that having my hair longer is not as important as it once was; I think if they can make me look even remotely as good as the compliments I have gotten then the same can happen for anyone that visits the Access Event to try it out for themselves.

As the year gets closer to a close, in my observation is that Modulus has grown from where it had been in the start of the year and progress like that is what helps a brand thrive and survive and I don’t think that it has to come from just my mouth but also from the countless fans of the brand (such as myself) that cannot wait to see what is in store for 2019.

Modulus Ash Hair:

  • 100% nex-gen alpha mesh
  • 5 color pack HUDs + integrated tinting
  • 40 color fatpack available
  • Left and right mirrored versions
  • Exclusively @ Access Event until 01/07/19

FaMESHed may have closed its doors but my wife and I managed to get in before it did where she pleasantly surprised me with the gift of the Ascend “Jamie Over Shirt” Fatpack that I had been eyeing for quite a while. I am a huge fan of wearing long sleeved buttoned shirts over regular t-shirts (most of the time graphic ones) quite often especially in the colder months. Wearing a regular t-shirt is not as enjoyable when the temps are lower and I’m sure many who in the real world can attest to that live in cold weather states.

In the virtual world I like to wear clothing that I could see being comfortable in outside of it and this fits that description to a tee (see what I did there? 🙂 Ascend fatpacks are full of different color choices and in this case shirt choices as well as graphics that the level of visibility can be changed which is one of the things I look for.

Ascend Jamie Over Shirt FATPACK:

  • Original mesh
  • 30 different shirt colors (Fatpack Only)
  • Individual styles available
  • Shirt Add-on included
  • Shirt HUD has 30 shirt colors and 15 graphic designs
  • Graphic visibility able to be changed within the HUD
  • Available soon in the Ascend in-world store.

I‘m starting to do the count down to New Years and with tomorrow being New Years Eve, I am going to try my best to get one last post to close out 2018. Just in case I am unable to connect with everyone out on the world wide web, I thank all the visitors (especially repeat visitors) for taking a look at what I consider to be fashionable as well as putting my artistic eye to the test.

My apologies for not being the best at closing out these things but it’s just another thing for me to work on in 2019 and I’ll see everyone soon (maybe even sooner than anyone anticipates).

Until our paths meet again,

B

[#548] Twistin’ The Night Away

Let me tell you ’bout a place
Somewhere up-a New York way
Where the people are so gay
Twistin’ the night away
Here they have a lot of fun
Puttin’ trouble on the run
Man, you find the old and young
Twistin’ the night away

Sam Cooke, ♫Twistin The Night Away

My taste in music is a broad range that includes a wide variety of genre’s and extends from what is current to many tunes from the past. I decided that combine a look that is fitting today with a song from way back. Sam Cooke had many songs that are still highly regarded today but one that sticks out in my mind is “Twistin’ The Night Away” because once you hear it you can’t help but want to move because it gives you such wonderful vibes.

Admittedly I’ve been a bit behind with responsibilities blogging for Bakaboo and I truly love the work that Ocean does with his creations. To me I feel like I need to be in a certain mood to come up with something creative and fitting for these styles because something ordinary and plain will just not do. Hopefully though I will be able to step forward and give these items the proper care they deserve.

For the look I have in this entry are the “Max” jacket and pants (though to me they are more like shorts as they do not go to the ankle). I think it is neat that with the jacket there is are cutouts on both the front and back with mesh to see through to your skin along with an ample amount of colors to choose from. The pants themselves have the same colors/patterns to match the jacket but if you want to be daring you can mix them up as well.

There is an ultimate edition available where you get the pattern on the jacket I am wearing which if it were me seeing this on another site it would convince me more to look into getting the special edition just for that because it cannot be found anywhere else.

Bakaboo Max (Jacket & Pants) features:

  • Original Mesh
  • 10 colors (5 plain, 5 with design) for both Jacket and Pants

So many different types of items can be found at the Access event (the Rue pose set from WRONG is making another appearance here) and I’m featuring one of the latest hairs from Modulus in the “Lucian Hair”. It’s a bowl type style that is still popular today as it was in the 90’s where I saw quite a few guys rocking it. I myself even might have had it styled this way once but I went through a lot of stages back then and nowadays I’m a low to no maintenance type of hair guy.

It’s not often that with a hair I go with a straight white without coloring it but I wanted to try something more out of my normal (which I’ve only done plain white less times then the fingers on one hand). With the clothing style of Bakaboo it made sense to go with a non-traditional hair color.

This is definitely a hair release I expect to see guys out there wearing proudly.

  • Original “Nex-Gen” Alpha Mesh
  • 5 Color Pack HUDs to choose from + integrated color picker
  • 40 color FATPACK also for sale
  • Mirrored left or right hairs included
  • Exclusively available @ Access until December 07th

I‘ve done plenty of on location photos lately but there are several great backdrops that I want to catch up on from Paparazzi including the one you see in today’s blog. “The Aquarium Room” is kind of like one of those you see in a fancy house with a furnished basement with a huge fish tank and the cool part is that not only do you get the backdrop itself but also the 3 different types of fish and 2 different types of starfish.

This fish tank may seem a little sad as there are only three fish in it but I knew if I started putting out a whole bunch of fish it would get out of hand and I wanted to make sure that at least one of each kind was visible. One of them I’d like to say is patterned after a forgetful cartoon fish (yeah you know the one…I think).

Also I found out that there was a new update to the LeLutka “Andrea” head so I took a trip to the store to grab the latest version and there is a new look HUD with some fancy new features and animations. One of the features I though was interesting was the ability to reroute things like beards and hairbases. It’s all there in the manual and I’m sure I’ll get through it all eventually but also wanted to anyone out there who had not heard about it that owns this head.

Any kind of update for something such as a head or a body or even a skin is always worth getting so that you have the latest and best version available…because after all you paid for it!

Hate to say it but I think time is up for this entry but don’t worry I’ll be back again before too long with something fun and new with my take on it. For anyone that’s dealing with winter’s fun cruel joke I’m right there with you. Be safe and stay warm until I’m back with a new conversations but until then I’m going to run off to twist the night away!
