[#455] You’d Better Call The Sledgehammer

Show me round your fruitcage
‘cos I will be your honey bee
Open up your fruitcage
where the fruit is as sweet as can be

β™«Sledgehammerβ™« – Peter Gabriel

When I first posted the blog I based off of Miley Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball” I thought that might be the height of my pushing the limits but it turns out I was wrong. Sure it took me long enough to gain the courage but I am doing what a good blogger should and feature a product that was given out to review and this is what I’m doing.

So to kind of break the ice and further my courage I had to come up with a soundtrack for this blog post and I did with humorous effort. If you look into it enough you’ll figure it out but I’m not going to point it out to you because that would ruin all the mystery. The song I chose is from when most people I know weren’t even a twinkle in their parents eye or were much too young (though I was rather young myself at the time). A good portion of the music from the 80’s was a bit on the comical side when you dig down deep (aside from the heavier metal genre).

I hope that you get a bit of a laugh out of this as I did during shooting and editing.


Not long ago, LV Designs released the “Dickprint Sweatpants” which the name is a very good description of the product. This Signature Gianni specific pair of sweatpants comes in two different versions MD and SD which I would conclude has to do with the size of the bulge in the front of them. I will say they are not for the meek that is for certain and definitely give you what I might call “Adult Film Star” definition in the nether regions.

To match them I picked up the “Tuxedo” shirt by ILLI that just became available at the freshly opened round of Tres Chic. It’s been quite a while since I found myself wandering around there but this definitely called to me when planning out my outfit for this blog post. Along with the items I’ve used to complete the scene (big thanks to Ethan for borrowing me a few of this to use!) I feel that it gives off the idea of a bachelor type scene and I pretty much recall these kind of shirts being pretty popular in the 80’s as well.


Modulus has a new skin that will be released soon on the 23rd of February at the Hipster Men’s Event but I’m lucky enough to be able to give you a preview of this handsome devil. “Oliver” is his name and he comes with a new feature that has not previously been seen in M-Bare releases, a skull with roses neck tattoo. I really think this is a cool addition as I’ve even given you guys an up close better look at it without any hair or hairbase because it’s just that cool. While the event is not open yet, I will come back and add the landmark to it once it is officially open.

The skin also gives you the option to keep the eyebrows and tatto separate and just wear the face skin without them and the option to have them on all at once. That way it’s easier to mix and match whatever preference you might have when putting your look together which is the best way to go in my opinion.


When it comes to poses I find versatile ways of making poses that are not intentionally unisex to work for males as well if chosen to. My friends at Image Essentials put out this really cute pose set at the TWE12VE event called “Flirt”. With some good old fashioned persistence I made it work for me as well though I admit that it is better suited for the fairer sex, I am able to figure out a way to make things work to my advantage. Maybe I’ll call it “Brennanized” at least for now and see if it sticks.

10 poses are included in this pose pack (5 + 5 opposite/mirror poses) which I am showing you two of them that I felt could best work with my scene and the vision I was going for.

That is all there is for me to say on this look and scene so I’m going to leave you to viewing the credits of this badboy and not dick around (yeah bad pun that I couldn’t resist) so I am able to start planning and working on the next outfit and blog to try and get at least one if not two more in before the end of the month. It’s been a lot of fun leaning a bit on the dark side so who knows what the future will hold considering that I view myself as a strictly PG blogger for the most part.

Onto the next conversation…

I’d sacrifice anything to come what might
For the sake of having you near
In spite of the warning voice that comes in the night
And repeats, repeats in my ear

[#201] My Soul Slides Away…

post201_01

But don’t look back in anger, don’t look back in anger…
I heard you say
At least not today.

Happy New Year to all the readers of “These Conversations Kill”, I hope that everyone has enjoyed the turning over into a new calendar. I’ve taken a few days to refresh and as you can probably see…I’ve spruced the look of the place up a bit. With my first post of the new year, I am going to jump right into it with a new jacket from Modulus which is at the Tres Chic event until the 5th. I know that isn’t much time to go out and grab it but, get to it because you don’t want to miss this. It comes in 3 styles, in which I’m wearing the Mid version. I’ve paired it up with 7mad;Raven’s Dean Jeans, I love these jeans so much that when they were originally released I bought the entire pack and found it hard to resist to go back to them again. Rounding out the wardrobe are the “Silent Boots” from Breath. I really like the products from there and these boots are no exception.

Also I’ve got the “Nick” hair from Speakeasy which you can get at Men Only Monthly which is still going on strong with about a week left to go to pick up all the good merch that they have from the December round.
