[#483] After The Storm

And after the storm,
I run and run as the rains come
And I look up, I look up,
on my knees and out of luck,
I look up.

Mumford & Sons, ♫After The Storm

We’ve all been there.

Every single soul that has or ever will step foot into this plane of existence has dealt with a trying time in their existence. It may last a few moments, days, weeks or possibly years but one thing that it is certain is that it doesn’t last forever. It’s what you do with that time after enduring whatever you’ve gone through is what’s most important. You’ve tempered the raging storms but it’s what you do after the storms that helps define you, your character.

I myself am going through a bit of a rough spot but I refuse to let it weigh me down and why it helps to have a medium such as this to work things out in my head because I know that when all the winds and rain have subsided that I will come out for it a wiser person and hopefully use it to my advantage.

Many times I plan things down to the very detail when it comes to a photo I take (location, styling etc) and then sometimes it is just really nice to go about things spontaneously as I’ve done with this blog entry. I threw on some clothes that I had not worn before or even remotely had plans for and wandered off to a location I’ve never been and found creativity took hold and was able to create something that set the mood at that moment.

The only thing about my look that was planned was the hair style I have on from Modulus that is currently available at the Equal10 event, which is something entirely new not only to the grid but to me as well. I’m not 100% sure of what the story is behind it but if you decide to check out the hair you’ll be in for a treat. The setup for the event is honestly one of the coolest I’ve seen in a long time and I have to give a major applause to whomever came up with the idea and executed it.

Moving back to the latest Modulus release, “Jay” is a short style that you can use a shaved base with to give it a bit more depth or you can use a regular one (as either work just fine). I’m wearing the Blonds pack (for the second straight release) which is not usual for me but I almost kind of feel that I was absently putting out a honey badger vibe (and we all know honey badger don’t care).

When it comes to hair whether it be me blogging it for a brand partner such as Modulus or finding something at a store/event that I like, one thing I tend to do is purchase FATPACKS because sometimes you just never know what mood you’ll be in or if you feel like going outside of your norm and if you do then I give you a round of applause. As I’m still on the topic of Modulus, the “Jay” hair does come in a FATPACK option and with that you’d get 25 different hair tones to work with in the form of 5 HUDs all with an integrated tinting ability to customize things that much further. It offers up the question of why bother picking up just a color or two when you’ll save money and have all the colors because even if you don’t use them today you may change your mind tomorrow or the next day.

Equal 10 runs through the 5th of May so there’s plenty of time to give it a look see!

Many of us have our favorite clothing brands in both the real world and in this virtual world, there are the ones that we buy just about every item they release but there is also room for those that while not everything that comes out works for you or fits your preferred mesh body choice the quality is at a high level. Lately for me that is the ExalteD brand.

A great handful of their products are definitely things I like (and more than likely own or will own) and the quality to me meets my criteria enough to shine a brighter light on them (not like they really need it!). I purchased this “Jumpsuit” at an event some time ago but just did not find the right inspiration to give it the proper featuring I felt it deserved. Yes, you can also even call them overalls if you like because that seems a bit more fitting but we’re allowed to see things as we like regardless of right or wrong.

This product fits both the Signature (Gianni) and Belleza body which I am wearing and comes with the Jumpsuit itself in two versions (regular and “big”) and includes a sweater which you can wear with it if you like. Probably if you were wearing these in a farm type setting you would definitely not be wearing the sweater with it and also be able to show off your physique but seeing as how my photo is a bit more moody and in a rainy setting it felt right the way I styled it.

Before I wrap things up I will encourage you to explore where this photo was taken. The place is called “Motorheadz Cafe” and the main feature of it is a biker bar but it is so much more than that. It is a very rural type location with houses and little shacks make this place a really enjoyable place to explore and as I did, take photos.

Finding locations to capture images that last in your mind are hard to come by and this particular place and scene are something that I’ll remember for quite a while to come and I hope it does with you as well. I also hope that if you yourself have or are going through a troubling time to know that while the storms may try to do you in they do not last and it’s what you do after the storms will be the best chapters in the story of your life.

Until our paths cross again, onto the next conversation…

[#482] I Wish…

‘Cause when it comes to playing basketball
I’m always last to be picked
And in some cases never picked at all
So I just lean upon the wall
Or sit up in the bleachers with the rest of the girls
Who came to watch their men ball

Skee-Lo, ♫I Wish

With as many times as you’ve seen me do a photo with a basketball theme to it that I’m some kind of superfan but in reality it’s probably the one sport I watch the least. Not that I have any extreme dislike for it but it just doesn’t appeal to me like Baseball does (as it seems to be more of a chess match to me). I can also say though that it is easier to capture in a photo and more designers are making poses and props that represent it.

For example, take the pose and prop that I’m using in today’s entry. It’s the “Backyard Basketball” set from Image Essentials (a TCK blog partner) that is currently available at the eBento event. This is probably one of their more intensive products as not only do you have the front of the garage with asphalt driveway but you also have poses that are for single use and also poses for two people (to create one on one action scenes). Unfortunately at the time I was doing this photo there was no one available to work with so I went solo (like Han…yep corny I know).

You can check this item out at eBento until the 30th of April and if by some odd reason you procrastinate (which is a BAD idea) then you’ll be able to find it at the store shortly thereafter…but seriously go take a look.

April has been quite the busy month for the Modulus brand, which has just released (and thankfully right when I needed it) “Anthony” a backwards snapback cap with a tuft of hair sticking out of the hole above the snap strip. While in real life I personally prefer fitted hats (there seem to be very few of any good quality on the grid of the mesh variety) this hat is the best thing for headwear junkies like myself.

25 colors in 5 different HUDs (complete with integrated tinting as well as an the ability to change the design of the cap to which there are 6 options). For those of you who like to change your hair color on a whim a FATPACK is available at a discounted price which gives you all the colors and you’ll save a little pocket change. I’ve always often said that if you can’t choose on just one thing and there’s several to do the math and you’ll find that it’s better to buy everything at once and save yourself the hassle of spending extra money down the road.

“Anthony” is a part of the Shiny Shabby event that runs from the 20th of April until the 15th of May, lots of great items and designers from clothing, poses and home decoration; is very much worth grabbing a taxi ride from the credits below.

Although I’ve previously blogged the “FLAME” tattoo by { Speakeasy } this is probably one of the best and closest views that I’ve ever posted in a photo as I’m wearing clothes most of the time and rarely show much skin. I really am fond of this tattoo and in the past I usually would never wear one for more than a short time but this one has really won me over. I think that it has elements of some of my favorite things (roses, ravens, as well as clocks) and has a very true saying just under the right pec that says “Hearts are wild creatures that is why our ribs are cages”. I find that to be very true and if they were just free to roam you never know what kind of trouble they could get into or damage they could endure.

Kalback (formerly Kal Rau) has been around for ages and I haven’t really kept up with the brand all that much since they returned several years ago; it’s not because I’m no longer a fan it just seems that other things just took precedence or was more in my style wheelhouse. Their “Sweat Shorts M3” happened to be just the thing I needed for my outfit as I felt that if I was going to shoot hoops shirtless that wearing long pants would defeat the purpose of my styling. It’s probably a weird thought but just go with me on it would you?

These shorts are available at the current round of the Man Cave event which is ongoing until May 1st so you’ve still go time to check out all the guy goodness!

It could also be said that my look might be more 90’s inspired considering that I used Skee-Lo’s “I Wish” as the soundtrack for the blog post. This song has been entertained by me to be used in previous blogs but I just decided on something else because it might not have fit the way I wanted it to. This time I do think it does hit the right point that I wanted to achieve.

One final thing before I wrap this up, is I wanted to make mention that the shoes I am wearing are a Limited Edition of the FLI. Low Sk8 shoes that I’ve worn several times through the course of entries on the site. They are all black with flames on the side part of the sole of the shoe. I realized after I had finished with everything that I did not get a close-up of them but considering I blogged a version of them before (as well as the fact they are in limited quantity) running out and grabbing them before they are gone completely. There is also a Hi version of the shoe as well and they are both together to the right side of the store as you walk in. I couldn’t pass these up the moment I saw the ad for them and hopefully if there’s anyone reading this and likes them as much as I do that you are able to get them too.

I hope everyone is having a great weekend and taking it as easy as possible. There’s more to come of course as I’ve got some goods from the newly open Men Only Monthly and of course more from Shiny Shabby which also reopened for it’s April/March round; I also hope to have at least one more look at this current round of Pose Fair before it closes as well so stay tuned!

Until our paths cross again, onto the next conversation…

[#480] Movies

I want you to be free
Don’t worry about me
And just like the movies
We play out our last scene

Alien Ant Farm, ♫Movies

One of my favorite things to do (when weather permits and funds are available) is go to the movies and a lot of time the cost to go these days is outrageous just for one person so I can only imagine what it is like for a family of four or more to go. There are places that have matinees or special deals to get you in to see the latest and greatest which is always the best time to go.

Being the geek that I am, the excitement for the latest Avengers movie “Infinity War” which comes out next Friday already has me itching to see it. Some say you can’t be a fan of both DC and Marvel comics apparently has never met me…because if it is comic book related I am going to see it because (comic books) are one of the things that helped me draw imagination as a youngster and though I don’t keep up with them much now (if at all) I still find ways of seeing what’s happened with certain characters of both imprints.

Pose Fair has some time left but I wanted to make sure that I featured the pose that I am using for this scene because it blends a bunch of things that I love together. The idea of going to the movies and getting some buttery popcorn to munch on as one loses themselves in the worlds that are being created in front of them on the screen. ASO has captured that with their exclusives for the fair and they deserve applause for how simple yet great these poses are.

That’s right, ASO! created two different poses which you can use in a movie theater setting or inside of one (there are tons of options you can work with as far as scenery) with realistic looking popcorn (one pose contains a bag and the other just some popcorn you are tossing into your mouth). The detail on the popcorn when you move close to it is nearly mind blowing. This was one pose that was fun trying to create an idea and visual around and I hope to see more from them in the future that is just as appealing and I have no doubt there will be.

Remember that you have until the 30th of April to hit the Pose Fair for all your photography and blogging needs before the doors close.

Modulus has a been on fire lately with releasing a ton of new hairs and have event updated some of the skins and one thing is for certain and I’ve said this before and I could say it until I’m blue in the face, Chucky Hollak is a man dedicated to his customers. At FaMESHed you can take a look at the “Baptiste” hair which is a a side swept hair of short to medium length which you can have shaved back and sides or just a normal under hair.

It reminds me slightly of a hairstyle that a younger Leo DiCaprio might have had at one time (which to you could be a good or bad thing but I’m looking at it like it is a good thing regardless of any kind of personal feelings about the actor as it isn’t relevant here). I went with the brown color HUD which has been my go to lately (previously always wore black but have been changing it up). If you are or even aren’t a fan of brown there are plenty of choices with 25 colors overall distributed through 5 different HUDs with an integrated tinting application. Of course a FATPACK is also available for those of you that just like to try different things on any given day and stick to one hairstyle for a while.

Check this out at FaMESHed right now which runs through the 27th of April.

When I had my look, pose and idea settled upon the next step was for me to figure out how to compose my image. One thing I know I wanted to do was use a movie theater and KraftWork has a really amazing build that I’ve had for a while and I did my best to attempt to build a scene but that’s not really my forte in the larger scheme of things. Then I realized that the sim, The Last Forever, was created in part by the brand’s owners and a small collective of people; everything I needed to get my vision accomplished would likely be there.

I took a small field trip and a few moments after arriving I saw the exact shot that I wanted and went right to work.

As I wrap things up I encourage you to take a look at The Last Forever and also check out KraftWork, who are a fine creator of decoration and builds that may help those of you who are adept at creating scenes yourself to be inspired for your own pictorials. My requirements as a blogger for Pose Fair have also been met but considering the event is still running and there’s plenty of good things that I’d like to use, you’ll likely see more from the event in some of my upcoming blog posts.

Until our paths cross again, onto the next conversation…

[#477] Root Of All Evil

You point your finger and play the victim
So take your best shot
Release the pressure

CFO$ (feat. Incendiary, ♫Root Of All Evil

For those who know me pretty well could tell you that I’m a fan of professional wrestling, I have been for a very long time. There’s always one time of year that excites me more than any other and that’s when it’s time for WrestleMania. I’ve seen every single one of them (the first few I was a bit young but when I was old and had access to them, I watched them and have watched most of them multiple times). I could probably go on forever about it but that would probably bore the non fan to death and that’s not really what I’m here for.

However, with that said, this particular blog post is an homage to one of my current favorites that is a part of World Wrestling Entertainment’s third brand, NXT. I patterned my look and the scene after a man named Aleister Black. I’ve always been a fan of the characters that seem to have a bit more edge to them and embrace their inner darkness and he does it to near perfection (as nothing is perfect). With every video or interview I have seen, I’ve become more and more of a fan and I believe people should check things out for themselves and base their own opinions so if you are a fan of sports entertainment (I still prefer the word wrestling) and you are not familiar with this man…google or youtube are definitely the perfect source for more.


For the second blog entry in a row I kept things simple and focused on one shot from the scene and made sure that it came out the best that it could and what you see above is the choice that was the winner. I definitely shoot more than one angle but I always go with the best angle that just gives me that feeling that it is the right choice.

The backdrop in the scene is from Anxiety (who doesn’t love their backdrops?) I thought that this definitely fit the darker tone that I was looking for and just in case anyone has any questions in their head, I’m not devil worshipping or anything like that. I’m merely meditating in a quiet and ominous cavern to tame my restless mind and focus my energies.

My outfit is purely L&B both the suit jacket and the slacks are a part of what is now being sold as a set. When the suit jacket came out a month or so ago at FaMESHed, I already had the slacks from a previous purchase so I was able to just pick up the jacket on its own but for those of you who do not own either of them, it’s a deal as a package and I’d recommend it. Quite a few color options in the included HUDs (the one that is for the jacket gives you the option to chance not only the color of the jacket but also the shirt and tie).

Last but not least is the pose which is from my friends at Image Essentials. The “Stretch” is a set of five yoga inspired poses and when I saw the meditation pose I knew that was the final and very awesome cherry on top of this scene sundae. As far as setting the mood goes, this definitely hit the top of the scale and came out how I had seen it in my head.

There are plenty more new things for me to blog this week which is now about half over so I’m going to get back to that and wrap this entry up and get you to the good part (the credits). For those of you who might be new to the blog and want to follow or get a hold of me, the social media contacts are to the right in the side panel. I always enjoy hearing from people if they have a song they’d like me to use as a soundtrack to a post I’d be more than happy to look into it.

Until our paths cross again, onto the next conversation…

[#473] The Cheap Seats

This town ain’t big, this town ain’t small.
It’s a little of both they say.
Our ball club may be minor league but at least it’s triple A.

Alabama, ♫The Cheap Seats

It’s that time of year again, the smell of grass and the crack of bats and a full nine innings (sometimes more) which means the Baseball season is under way. I’ve noticed on social media fellow bloggers & photographers were at it right on opening day but I was preparing something and I wanted to do it without rushing or feeling overwhelmed by it.

The pose fair is about to begin tomorrow and fortunate enough for me the posemakers at Just Posing created a pack of poses called “Batter Up” with five different poses (a mixture of male and female which I’m sure you can get creative and go outside the box and use them all with either gender in mind) to choose from you’ll be able to catch the essence of the great American game. Also the bats are included with the poses so that you won’t have to try and find a compatible bat and figure out how to make it look right, they are included and fit each pose like a glove (haha see what I did there?)


I wanted to capture the spirit of a small time baseball spot something along the lines of what you might have seen in the movie, “The Sandlot” which is one of my top 5 favorite baseball movies of all time. Though I couldn’t quite find all the pieces I needed to make that I decided to be more low key and make something that was more of like a park ball diamond or something that little league and softball teams play on.

I’m not the greatest at set building so I used various things that I had laying around and the way the entire photo session turned out was really a fun process and turned out great. Those are the kind that really boost your confidence and add to the fun of what blogging can be. Yes I am a blogger for Pose Fair but I don’t feel like when I was doing this scene that it was a requirement, it was fun and it made me think of the summer and how I’m going to enjoy being outside not having to wear a jacket and spending time outside smelling the grills around the neighborhood.


For the outfit I went with things that were simple and what is more simple then jeans and a t-shirt? I could have looked in my closet and found something I’ve already worn but I had my eye on a basic tee at the Hipster Men’s Event made by CHEERNO, who we all knew as someone who made various mesh accessories, skins, you name it and after a break he’s back to creating and doing clothing which is just as well put together as anything I’ve ever seen from his brand. The “S/S 18 Tee Basic” which I am wearing in “Sand” because I felt like plain white was just something that was too obvious and wanted to deviate from the norm even if just a little bit. The tee fits the Belleza, Signature (Gianni), and SLink mesh male bodies but maybe some of the others could try a demo and see if they can use alpha cuts to make it work for them. It’s really cool as far as basic shirts go and definitely something I personally recommend if you are looking for casual wear.

Before I wrap things up, I wanted to take a quick moment to say that even though I created this blog earlier in the month of March I didn’t put together my first post until the 31st of the month. Today is the true 4 year anniversary of These Conversations Kill and with 473 posts under its belt this site has been one of my best achievements and I wouldn’t change any of what I’ve done with it or on it in these 4 years. I’ve had good times and bad (as all of us have) and I feel that even though I may not be where I’d like to be I am just on the verge of it and my thoughts have changed and progressed and will continue to bring my style from the grid to the grid. Thank you to all of you that have been a part of this journey past, present, and those who are a part of the future. Time for you get to the good stuff and enjoy the first round of Pose Fair for 2018!

Until then, onto the next conversation…

[#472] I Will Be There Once More…

You don’t have to stray
Two oceans away
Waves roll in my thoughts

Pearl Jam, ♫Oceans

Whenever I come across a Fisherman’s beanie (whether it be one with or without hair included) I feel that my scenes should have something to do with water and boats and or both. So after I received the Kenny hair from Modulus my first thought would be to find a location with those things in mind. Fortunate enough for me as I was looking at one of my resources for locations to potentially take photos at I instantly saw Erebos Harbor and I took a cab there.

Shortly after I started to explore and walk around, I found the perfect location. There was a dock with several boats and a great view of the ocean and that to me felt like a winner. After getting set up and getting everything just right (in my eyes anyway) I went to work and from that this photo came to pass.


Lighting is something I struggle with at times and half of the time getting things to look how I think they should (or want them to). With this pic I do feel like all the conditions were right and I was satisfied with the outcome and I do hope it shows to anyone taking a look as well.

At the beginning of the post I mentioned the Kenny hair by Modulus, which is available right now at Shiny Shabby (openened on the 20th). It’s a well made fisherman’s beanie with a fringe of hair coming out of the front and a little bit on the sides. I’ve been going with brown hair lately mainly because mine is that color in the real world. The hair comes in 5 color packs each with an integrated tinting HUD which also serves to help change the fabric color of the beanie (6 different shades).

If I were to do anything different about my look I would have given myself more facial hair, maybe more of a fisherman’s beard to go along with the beanie but it still turned out as a good look that works for me. Focusing on different angles and more singular products feels like it has been working out better for me since I started doing things a little bit differently


Recently I’ve just been posting one primary picture on the blog and not doing more than one but because I enjoyed the scenery around me at Erebos Harbor, I thought I would capture myself from another angle and get more of the water, and with the type of ambience I had really just gave me that feeling that I made the right choice by deciding to come here.

You’ll also notice that I’m wearing the Fugitive Flannel from Razor that I picked up while I was browsing The Clique event when I was there. Actually there were a few things I grabbed but whether I get around to blogging them while the event is running is yet to be seen. A lot of irons in the fire going on right now and I definitely do not want to burn myself out or not think of it as being fun. That is one of the sure signs and death knell’s of a blogger.

A few more details about the Flannel are that it comes fitted for Belleza male bodies but also has fits for several women’s bodies and it is made so that it is loose fitting to avoid anything poking through that might do so. I am wearing the blue version but it also comes in both black and yellow just in case blue is not a color you tend to wear a lot. I wear a lot of things that are usually black so it was down to blue or yellow for me and while yellow would have been fun, I think when the idea for this photo was formulating blue was the best choice.

Recently I found out that myself and 19 others (Lucky was also included in the 20 woohoo) were selected as the official bloggers for Pose Fair for 2018. I couldn’t be more excited as I’ve been going to the event for longer than I can remember as a consumer and this year I will be a part of it as a blogger. This is one achievement that I honestly never expected but I am going to make the very best of it. For the other official bloggers, congrats on your being selected as well I know some great work is going to come out of this all around.

The event starts April 1st and runs through the 30th so you have a whole entire month to check out all the goods that will be showcased to help you aid you in your creative blogging and photography. I have seen a lot of the designers that are apart of this and there are well known stores and there are some that you may not be familiar with and I hope to help bridge that as well.

It’s once again that time for me to wrap this up and look towards the future (as now I have plenty to plan for). We’ll see what tomorrow brings and I hope that I can get those creative brain waves going on whatever and wherever I am lead to. If there’s anything you might have a question about feel free to contact me through social media which you can find the access to on the right sidebar of the page or in the about me section.

Until then onto the next conversation…

[#471] Pretty Fly…

You know it’s kind of hard
Just to get along today.
Our subject isn’t cool,
But he fakes it anyway.

The Offspring, ♫Pretty Fly (For A White Guy)

While it’s been a busy few last couple days I thought I would get a quick post out of the way as I had an idea for something goofy and quirky so I put on my photography hat and went to work. I needed to throw a little fun back up on the pages after doing something more on the serious side in the previous post. It just happened my inspiration came as I was hanging out at my friend Lucky’s place and he allowed me the opportunity to do a photo at his place.

It also gave me the opportunity to feature some cool things that I thought worked well together. This post won’t be a big as they have been since this was a just a short jog in a sense but like I said it was fun and I hope others can find the humor in the soundtrack I chose for the entry as it’s kind of a classic in a way.


Modulus just released the new Darren hair over the weekend at The Clique event, which is inspired by the film “The Breakfast Club”. While most people are unsure of what that is, I was a youngster when the film was first released and probably was not watching movies like this at the time. It is one of those films that is a favorite of many not just those who saw it then but those who have come across it in the years since. Darren is modeled a bit after the character, John Bender, who is played by Judd Nelson (who just happened to voice on of my favorite Transformers in the animated movie that debuted a year after this film).

Sometimes male hair when aided by accessories (like hats for example) fall short of expectations but this hair which has an incorporated headband (with 6 fabrics available in each of the color HUDs with integrated tinting) figuratively shapes this hair. It’s definitely something that works with a lot of the other Modulus releases for instance if you own them and go from just hanging out to playing some type of sport activity (or being goofy and playing living room basketball like my goofy self) it is a great transition.

If sweatpants and sweatshirts are your thing then you’ll definitely want to head to GUTCHI as soon as possible and become a group member (free to join at present moment) and pick up their most recent group gift which is this complete outfit that comes complete with a HUD that allows you to color 6 different parts of it (with a choice between 7 different colors). It’s available for owners of Belleza (Jake) and Signature (Gianni) mesh bodies and is definitely worth giving the store a look along with the other items (including shoes and accessories) that they sell which are excellent quality.

As I looked through my varied and copious amount of poses in my arsenal I found that I really didn’t have what I was looking for or something I didn’t already use that would fit the idea I had so it was off to the Marketplace to see if I couldn’t find something that would be just right. I came across a set by AM Poses which really caught my eye (several different styles of Dunk style basketball poses) and that was all I needed to see. The pack of poses even includes the ball so that you wouldn’t have to look all over try and find a ball if you didn’t have one (or create an extra expense if you are on a budget).

While I wrap this up I want to thank Lucky again for allowing me use of his space to pull this idea off because it was a lot of fun trying to be nerdy while appearing to be serious and Air Jordan like. Though it is time for me to get back into prep mode to figure out what will come next as I do have several thoughts but which one is the easier to pull off will be what you see next on the page.

Hope everyone had a great weekend and strive to have a wonderful week!
