[#619] Take Me Away

 

This time all I want is you
There is no one else
Who can take your place
I’ve seen enough and it’s never enough
It keeps leaving me needing you

Lifehouse, ♫Take Me Away♫

 

As I am writing this it is Friday (depending on when it gets finished it still might be or more than likely will be Saturday) and I did this little collab with Brenna, my brother Lucky, and Stef Giano (the latter two are also both excellent bloggers so click their name to get more about them!) For me this is almost a throwback photo for me as I started my journey in the virtual world as a virtual teenager. Brenna and I both attended the same school, which is where we met and the rest is just history.

When we were all discussing what kind of photo we wanted to do (several more ideas were brainstormed which may see the light of day sometime in the future) and Lucky came across the ad for the “Did You Miss Class Today?” gacha set from K&S Poses. It’s definitely something I consider to be an interesting set complete with a RARE skybox that has the chalkboard, desks and a bunch of strewn papers around. I gave Lucky and I the opportunity to play a jock and cool kid and the gals got to be school girl’s to create what I think is an great scene.

Lucky himself has already posted his version of it in the blog titled, “Love The Dumb Things We Do When We’re Young” and I am pretty sure that Stef is working on her own version of it as well but at this moment I’m unsure if mine will see the light before hers but we’ll see right?

Most of my look is compromised of things I already had laying around accept for the “Bradley” hair by Vango from Men Only Monthly. It’s more of a shorter style but I thought it worked as most of the jocks when I was in high school for real wore that type of hairstyle so it definitely fits the overall feel of what I was trying to accomplish with my part of this photo.

This may have been a team project but it didn’t mean that I wasn’t going to do a little bit of something on my own and get an angle with just Brenna and I closer up so that it could go in a special portfolio that I keep of all the pictures we take together. There may not be a lot of them so far but it continues to grow and I know that there will be even more as time goes on and the best ones get brought in world and put into photo frames and placed on the wall as should all pictures that hold special meaning.

My intentions for this blog is for it not to be super long considering that there aren’t any sponsored items in the post and overall this was mean to be just something fun to do between the four of us. That is one of the things that I’m going to try and focus on more during event down times which for me right now is mostly until the next big one in May which is the annual Pose Fair with Vintage Fair happening shortly after that so I’m going to enjoy a bit of a breather now before the heat turns up.

On that note I’m going to turn this over to the credits and give a big shout out one more time to Brenna, Lucky and Stef for all making this a super fun thing to do and I look forward to more of them to come. Most of my blog writing is more of an editorial style so this was kind of a different stretch and may not even be half as entertaining but this time I’m letting the visuals do the work more than the words.

To those of you who have awesome weekends planned I hope you enjoy them and I’ll be back again soon to give you more fashion to feast your eyes on (with hopefully some fun mixed in). Catch you all on the flip peeps!

 

Don’t give up on me yet, don’t forget who I am
I know I’m not there yet, but don’t let me stay here alone

[#588] You Don’t Look Back

When will you learn?
I’m not your boy
You don’t look back
Why do I pick up your slack?

Filter, ♫Jurassitol

I apologize for the lack of new posts but I’ve been under the weather for the last week or so and it caught up to me in the last few. To give myself a little bit if a needed break I decided to refrain from partaking in any kind of photo taking or blogging until I felt in the right state to do it and this is my way of testing the water a little bit.

I have a little bit of time before any new commitments blogging wise come up so I decided to try my hand at something I usually reserve for Halloween, which is do photographs inspired by The Crow. I’ve loosely associated this photo with the second film in the series, City of Angels and while nothing will ever come close to the originals I enjoyed it as best as I could because I wasn’t expecting anything so I wasn’t disappointed.

The version of the the character, Ash, was a mechanic who rides a motorcycle in the film so this is my tribute to it but not as closely based as my previous photos related to the original film.

Everything I used for this photo are non-current event items that I pulled together however there is a new release that is store specific in the form of the “Leather Leggings” that I am wearing from NOCHE. That’s right, I couldn’t pass these up because I am a fan of things that are made of leather…(wallets, jackets, shoes and of course pants or leggings as these are). There is also a latex version that came out at the same time if you’re more into that than leather which is alright too. But you can get your leggings fix on by going to the main store and checking these out.

NOCHE – Leather Leggings (Black)

  • Original mesh
  • Materials for advanced lighting
  • 3 different sizes for male “package”
  • Fitted sizes for Belleza (Jake) and Signature (Geralt & Gianni) mesh bodies

Sometimes putting photos together can be difficult as far as poses go. Trying to find the right thing to make the setting perfect so while I was trying to find the perfect motorcycle prop and pose set, I ended up combining the bike from WetCat’s recent “Young Blood” couples pose with Poseidon Poses “Action Bike” pose set (took them out of the bike and threw the pose I wanted into a poseball). Combining them worked out for me because it gave me the look I wanted from the start; sometimes improvising is the best answer to getting the results I’m looking for.

I love long coats (duster’s and trenches or anything in that family) and through a photo I saw on Facebook, I was introduced to one I’d never seen before by Lenox. It surprised me because I’m usually pretty good at keeping up with releases from the store with many of them residing in my closet already. I made a run for the store and instantly grabbed all of them because who knows when I may need this in another color down the road (pun intended of course). The fit is great and it also has materials to give it an extra special look with advanced lighting much like the leggings I paired it with.

On that note though I think I am going to leave you all with the credits and at least say that if anyone might be interested in the face pain I have on it is one that’s been retired for quite a while so it’s something that unfortunately cannot be purchased. Hopefully though someone will come along and and perhaps make an newer version that could be even better.

I am going to go find some more things to bundle up with and be back again soon providing I don’t freeze to death in the great freezover of 2019. Hope you’ve enjoy my brief little post and I look forward to getting back more into the swing of things in the next few days as February is now upon us. Until then be will, stay safe and treat others as you’d like being treated.

Best regards,

Brennan

The Black Crowes, ♫A Conspiracy

Sometimes starting blogs this late in the day could turn out interesting. I say that because the later in the day it gets the less razor sharp my mind is and I’ve determined that a lot of my blog writings tend to be rambles and I apologize for that. I’ve also been thinking about the way in which I’m writing as well and weighing the pros and cons of how to address certain things.

At times when I am writing I feel like I have an audience but using the word “you” bugs me for some reason. It runs along the same lines as using the world sponsor and yes the brands that I blog for are essentially sponsoring me by allowing me to feature their products in my blog but it just seems impersonal to me. Why I seem to dislike using “you” as a form of acknowledging readers is something I should take a more in depth look at.

I believe that I can get better at doing these write-ups without making them sound as if they drone on over and over potentially losing the audience I am trying to connect with. Bare with me while I continue to work all of this out and I appreciate everyone’s support in not only helping me become better as a photographer but also a writer. I will resume using the term “you” again to see how it goes and if I decide it is not working for me then I will continue on with the way I have addressed people before using the third person method.

Last night during a brainstorming session, I was thinking of the music of artists that I have not used before or sparingly used as soundtracks when it dawned upon me that I have given very little attention to The Black Crowes. Their music holds good memories for me as I recall spending time with my real life brother listening to them and it was always a good time no matter what music we listened to, however, it gave me a greater appreciation of different types of music.

Their brand of southern rock was something that as a younger man may or may not have played air guitar to (that was a big thing back then so laugh if you must!) I remember even getting the cd that this song is on and the pressing of it I have is one which the cover had been modified as the original one was taken from a cover of Hustler magazine (for those of you and I doubt there are many are uninitiated is a dirtier version of playboy). Of course I did not realize this until a long time after but it didn’t make any difference to me.

The music is what mattered the most.

My look for this blog is comprised of what I feel best resembles The Black Crowes frontman, Chris Robinson’s appearance in the video for “A Conspiracy”. Call it a combination of The Crow meets The Serpent and The Rainbow, gothic in nature so I put on some guyliner, black lipstick and painted my nails to create a look that is close enough.

X.T.C PoSes’s “I Don’t F@#k Wit You” is the pose set featured in today’s post; the attitude these poses bring is the precise mood I want to display. Coming up with the idea to use the nostalgic television “Standby” as my backdrop for added effect is a nice touch as well. Five poses make up this set and I used two different ones between the photos I have taken.

There have been many good single male poses for the Pose Fair but truthfully this particular one has been the most fun to photograph. I have become more of a fan of X.T.C PoSes as time has gone on and look forward to having an opportunity to feature them again in the near future; I would also like to mention that there is also another single male pose pack exclusively at the event as well.

Check it out because I’m sure you’ll be glad you did!

X.T.C PoSes – I Don’t F@#k Wit You Pose Pack

  • Bento enabled poses (bento viewer required)
  • 5 different poses to choose from
  • Exclusive to Pose Fair until 01/26/19

As a blogger I get to discover new stores all the time but it is also nice when I find something I like from one that I have not worn in a long time. For example I cannot remember the last time I wore something from Breath. It is a store that I would consider myself a fan of because they cater more to a dark style of clothing (staying within the monotone range).

The thing to do now before events open (if access to the outer area of an event is possible) is to use your camera to look inside to browse items that have already been put up for sale; it’s a great way to beat some of the rush and also full regions (such a pain!) Breath’s latest outfit caught my eye because of the pocket chain that attaches to the pants as well as the abstract design on the style I am wearing. I knew I needed to have it and at the time I did not know what type of photo I would take wearing it but the timing worked out great.

Breath – SPset (B+HAND GARA)

  • Original mesh
  • Included chain add-on
  • Fitted for Belleza (Jake) and Signature (Geralt & Gianni)
  • Exclusive to Man Cave until 02/11/19

The long hair I have on is “Aaron” by Vango. When I tend to have my hair longer like that for photos or just every day wandering this is my first go to unless I choose to wear something with a hat for outdoors (winter) photos. It’s one of my favorite styles that I know won’t let me down whenever I use it. Also the guyliner I mentioned at the beginning of the blog is a part of the “Ian” skin HUD by Session Skins and the lipstick/fingernails a part of the CATWA and Signature Gianni body HUDs respectively.

On that note I am at a spot in the blog I feel comfortable ending on. I have a few more days with items from Pose Fair that ideas keep running through my head so I’m going to take advantage of it the best I can (which means possibly doing a female single post as well for a change). Once the big Pose Fair finishes the February pop-up Valentine’s Edition starts the second week which before I likely would not have been excited about but I admit that I am looking forward to it…what a difference a year makes.

Warm regards (especially to those of you in the path of the winter vortex),

[#564] What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve?

Maybe it’s much too early in the game
But I thought I’d ask you just the same
What are you doing New Year’s
New Year’s eve?

Harry Connick Jr., ♫What Are You Doing New Years Eve?

For the past several years I’ve been able to manage posting one last blog before I run off to celebrate New Year’s Eve with friends and family. This year like any year has had it’s fair share of ups and downs from creative blockages to finding out people were not who I thought they were. On the other side of the spectrum I was nominated for an esteemed award in the blogging community that I never imagined I would but most importantly though I reconnected with one of the most special people I’ve ever met and now we’re happily married.

2018 was full of things like that and the funny thing is that with only a few hours something is different today than it was a year ago…I’m excited and looking forward to 2019. There are plenty of things I’ve set my sights to improve not only in the virtual world but also in the real one. The major difference is that I have even more great people in my life that wish for me to succeed than I did before which is why my level of confidence can only increase as I approach another 365 days worth of goals.

To the brands that have shown me their love and loyalty, I look forward to give back as much as I can to you in 2019. To the events that I was a part of in 2018 and will continue on with in the new year, thank you for your faith in my work as well because I know that only a group of the best are allowed entry. To my family, friends and colleagues alike…your support has strengthened me and I use it to guide me now as I will tomorrow and in the months ahead.

Thank you so much to all of you for everything it means a great deal to me.

For the final blog of 2018 I’ve got quite a bit of good things for the look and the scene to share so without wasting too much time I’m going to get right into it.

The pose I am using comes from UrbanMind and it is called D!VA and as one might gather it is meant to be for the fairer of genders but as most know, I am someone who likes to try to take an out of the box type approach when it comes to poses that are not intended for males. It’s not really difficult to do unless it is a very complicated pose and I did try every one in this set and they were all usable without me having to adjust my shape.

It appears that the set is based off of the songs of various female artists and some of which I have worked out in my head, there are a few others that I haven’t. The set also comes with a microphone prop for some of the poses and also an umbrella for the pose which I believe is based on Rihanna’s song of the same name. If I were a female I think I would enjoy using this pose set just as much as there are many possibilities that can be done with it in regards to scenes with stages or even perhaps karaoke settings.

UrbanMind Poses D!VA Pose and Prop Set:

  • Bento enabled poses (requires bento capable viewer)
  • Microphone and umbrella prop included
  • 6 different poses to choose from
  • Exclusively @ Anti-Event until 01/07/19

My NYE wardrobe would have felt a bit lacking if Bakaboo hadn’t released the “Luka Suit” at the Man Cave event for December. One thing I can say for certain is that this suit is a lot of fun for me to wear because it’s very ornate and this appeals to me a lot. There are three different sets of jacket colors (A-C) with included pants in three colors (Black, Cream and White). They can be bought individually or purchased together in a FATPACK for a reduced rate and if it were to be compared price wise I can say that the FATPACK is cheaper than buying even two packs at once; essentially would be like getting a pack and a half free.

I chose the black, gold, and white even though I should have chosen a more colorful choice but I wanted to sneak in a bit of a shout out to my favorite football team, the Saints. They’ve had a good season and are heading into the playoffs with every game they play being at the Superdome which is super exciting not just for me as an out of town fan but those who are actually there in the thick of it.

Tracking back to the suit though I really love the thought that was put into it and also all the different colorways that can be picked to meet a buyer’s needs. Looking forward to more unique creations from Bakaboo in the next year because adding a splash of color at the right time makes things that much more lively.

Bakaboo Luka Suit:

  • Original mesh
  • 3 different color packs
  • HUD to change sleeves also included
  • Pants included in each pack
  • FATPACK also available
  • Fitted for Belleza (Jake), Signature (Gianni) and SLink Physique male bodies
  • Exclusively @ Man Cave until 01/09/19

With those being my main featured items I would like to give honorable mention to the hair I am wearing which is “Lucas” by Vango. It’s a long hair that’s pulled back into a bun and gives off a bit of an Asian style to it. I picked up the Naturals pack so that I could have the basic colors for when the need arises that I want to go with a color than my usual black or even shades of brown.

It’s also one of the reasons that drew me to the current round of Men Only Monthly which is known to have great swag from month to month. One of the male events that I recommend anyone needed to find newer designers or just new clothes, poses, tattoos or accessories from brands that are already known and loved.

The background that I have behind me is a part of the Christmas Backdrops Gacha from Paparazzi that I previously used another backdrop from. I thought the neon champagne glasses and “Happy New Year” sign fit the message I wanted to send perfectly. This is a night that is supposed to be filled with fun and allows people to let loose which I am slowly starting to do now.

Given that I want to make sure this is posted before the clock strikes twelve on the East coast, I am going to wish a Happy New Year on behalf of myself and the entity known as These Conversations Kill. Have a safe, enjoyable evening and I can’t wait to share my journey through 2019 with everyone!

Until our paths cross once again,

B

[#561] Santa Claus Is Coming…To Town

You’d better watch out, you’d better not cry
You’d better not pout, I’m telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town
Santa Claus is coming to town
Santa Claus is coming to town

Bruce Springsteen, ♫Santa Claus Is Coming To Town

Seasons Greetings from These Conversations Kill and of course me, Brennan. Many might be wondering if their eyesight is wrong or they need to adjust their monitors but I decided to do something out of the ordinary that I usually don’t do and that’s show a lot more skin. I’m also putting Santa Claus in more of a pg-13 light and that I would say is an interesting concept.

This post is filled with goodies from The Men Jail including my use of a Gacha set by PBM Decor aka PeeBee MacMillan. This Christmas gacha is very well made and I have to say that it was one of the main reasons that I chose to do this blog because with the glass of milk, plate of cookies, and a fireplace where stockings can be placed along with an excellent armchair for me to park myself, it’s well worth giving it a look for those that are big on decor and also things that deal with the holidays.

PBM Decor Christmas Set Gacha:

  • Original Mesh
  • 11 items (9 commons, 2 RARES)
  • Exclusively @ The Men Jail until 12/28/18

While my version of Santa isn’t in his trademark suit, I thought it would be interesting to pattern my look with the Gild “Boxers-B White Lined” FATPACK which has a pair of red boxers with a white outline…perfect for representing my new vision for the man from the North Pole. My idea centers around Santa having a pretty wild night with the Mrs. and she leaves him a parting gift before it’s time to get ready to deliver gifts all over the world.

For those that like these boxers but are not as much a fan of the white outline there is black-line version and that I feel is a good way to make everyone happy which is a good move Gild, I definitely applaud you for it!

Gild Boxers-B White-Lined FATPACK:

  • Original mesh
  • 6 colors in the set (also sold separately)
  • Black-Line version also available
  • Exclusively @ The Men Jail until 12/28/18

The final item from my haul from The Men Jail makes my version of Santa capable of finding himself on the “Naughty List”. It seems that his evening with Mrs. Claus involved scratching and smacking which can be seen in the form of KAOS Tattoos “Spank” applier. I have a feeling that there is a market that will use this for a lot less innocent photos than I’m capable of but to each their own I say! Santa most likely has a few things that he doesn’t want the elves or reindeer knowing about if you catch my drift?

KAOS Tattos Spank Tattoo:

  • Applier HUDs for Belleza, Maitreya, Omega and SLink
  • Omega HUD applier for face scratches
  • Exclusively @ The Men Jail until 12/28/18

Last year I recall blogging some holiday items and dubbing myself “Hipster Santa” and this year I may not be as much of a hipster; it might be said that I upgraded a little. My beard is one of the latest releases from DossiEr called the “Reppo” beard which is a full pack which I like because some stores divide into color packs but at least this way if I choose to wear a different color I can just pick it in the HUD and I’m done!

I’ve already seen DossiEr post a WIP of a new beard so for fans of the brand there’s definitely exciting news and I welcome that because well I did say in the last blog that I consider myself a virtual beard connoisseur (that’s my story and I’m sticking to it!)

DossiEr ReppoC Beard:

  • Original mesh
  • HUD includeds 12 different color choices
  • Fitted sizes for CATWA ( Daniel, Stanley and Victor) and LeLutka (Andrea)
  • Exclusively @ Man Cave until 01/09/18

Several items that I have as a part of the scene that are not new or event items include the “Scary Gary” skin by Session Skins, I felt like it was perfectly aged for my portrayal of Santa as I combined it with the “Aaron Hair” by Vango. My look wouldn’t be complete though without the Caboodle “Holiday Hat” which I’ve had since the holidays last year and never used and I believe they even have it for purchase at the Linden Lab “Shop & Hop” if you haven’t been there I’d definitely encourage a trip there as many top designers have new and old products for great prices.

This is all the time I have for this blog post but I hope all my readers, friends, and family have a wonderful holiday and I am going to take a day or two break before I get back to blogging to enjoy the holiday and all the wonderful food, beverage and time with those closest to me. Be safe and responsible and I look forward to continuing on to get a couple more posts in before 2018 is no longer.

Until next,

B

[#541] A Million Dreams

However big, however small
Let me be part of it all
Share your dreams with me
You may be right, you may be wrong
But say that you’ll bring me along
To the world you see
To the world I close my eyes to see
I close my eyes to see

The Greatest Showman Cast, ♫A Million Dreams

With the final days of Pose Fair approaching (it ends tomorrow October 31st) I wanted to squeeze in one more item that reminded me a little bit of one of my favorite movies, which is a perennial cult classic that is shown quite often during October in most places and one that I watch as part tribute/part tradition and have for years now.

In “The Crow” during flashbacks of the life he lived before his violent death, Eric Draven and his fiancee Shelly Webster are shown in a field of flowers with vivid colors and in a way I wanted to recapture that in my own style by dancing with my most favorite person of all. I’ve pretty done a facsimile of scenes from the movie for several years of this blogs existence and thought maybe I would do it differently this year.

Normally I also don’t do showtunes but sometimes you have to compromise when it is something that has meaningful words. While I have never seen “The Greatest Showman” it is actually on my list of things to eventually get around to watching as I don’t completely rule out watching any sort of movie as I’m probably one of only a select handful of people who might admit they’ve seen “The Notebook” but I thought the story was good.

The theme that has been chosen for the soundtrack of this blog post has quite a bit of meaning if you listen to it and along with the photo makes a lot of sense to me to use it so I can thank my wife for showing it to me (as I had asked her to suggest something and she came through like she always does).

The only new release that I am featuring in this scene is the pose, which is from CORPUS and called “Time Lapse”. It’s a very sweet couples pose that fits the two of us doing something as spontaneous as dancing in a field of marigolds on the Whimberley sim, which I have not visited in a very long time and am happy that it is still alive and kicking and looking as great as ever; it is truly a unique place to explore and to take someone you care about with you as you roam around.

CORPUS Poses Time Lapse Couples Pose features:

  • 100% bento enabled couples pose (bento capable viewer required for proper use)
  • Modifiable for avatar compatibility
  • Available exclusively @ Pose Fair until Oct. 31st so hurry!!!

That is really all for this blog post which gives me more time to see what I can whip up for a Halloween photo tomorrow (because it’s my favorite day of the year of course!) I really hope that visitors enjoy this post as much as I did shooting it as it shows a different side of me that doesn’t always show up in the pages of this blog but am trying to more and more when possible.

I shall finalize this by giving you the credits below for what I’m wearing and also what my wife is wearing as well as the taxi for you to visit Whimberley to go explore when time permits. It is a really wonderful place that you can just walk around and relax and just have an overall good feeling. So until our paths cross once again, it’s onto the next conversation…

What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger
And you won’t fear death any longer

People will hate you, shake you, break you
Standing firm will make you
Unstoppable

For The Fallen Dreams, ♫Unstoppable

One of the best things as a blogger is when an event like Pose Fair comes along and great products are in front of you and give you inspiration to photograph scenes. With the “Male Pose 8” pose set by FockStore I imagined myself in a scenario where I was in a firefight like you might see in a movie like John Wick or it’s sequel John Wick: Chapter 2. Wearing black is something that suits me I think and this gave me an opportunity to visit a previous location, Alien Asylum (where Travis Olbers and I did our co-op photo!)

With five poses to choose from (and I’ve used two from this set) you can tell a pretty good story with it. As I said above I was without styling myself exactly as John Wick, I feel that I would tell a story from the characters point of view that someone very close was taken from him and he makes it his mission to exact revenge on the perpetrators but along the way deals with the pain and anxiety that the toll of his mission is taking on him.

FockStore Male Pose 8 features:

  • 5 bento enabled poses (bento viewer required for intended use)
  • 3 mesh handguns that match 3 of the poses
  • Exclusively @ Pose Fair until October 31st (Halloween!)

::Fockstore: Pose Male 8

The Gabriel “Black Panther” set from the September round of The Arcade was something I enjoyed collecting (as I do a fair amount of their gacha items) but I didn’t really have an set idea for what I wanted to do with it but when the FockStore poses came into my virtual life I thought it would be perfect. I also managed to use just about each product (mostly in black except the gloves) and even wore the RARE Rollup Coat in my main photo, and took it off for my secondary shot.

The only thing I felt wouldn’t work in the scene were the actual panthers that are a part of the set and come in different poses. Maybe it might have added a little bit more of a dynamic but I didn’t feel it was necessary to have it be a part of what I was doing.

My secondary shot also includes a close up of my eyes which are from Go&See and are from The Dark Style Fair which is one of those events that appeal to part of me. The “Luxe” eyes look very cool which is one of several reasons why I made sure that you could see them as eyes are harder to see in any kind of photo other than an extreme closeup.

You can take my word for how cool these eyes are but seriously you should go take a walk on the dark side and check out the “Luxe” eyes and many of the other cool things you can take home from The Dark Style Fair.

Go&See Luxe Eyes features:

  • Appliers for CATWA and Genus Project (sold separately)
  • Mesh eyes also available
  • 10 different iris tones to choose from
  • Exclusively @ The Dark Style Fair until October 31st!

Now that we are in October which is my favorite month overall (even though the chillier weather) I’m working to get my mindset to where I can do more Halloween type scenes and I am sure many of the events that are coming up (and some that have already started such as Salem) will have items that will aid me in my mission.

With that said I am going to wrap this post up and will be back again soon with more from the grid. Until our paths cross again, onto the next conversation…
