Stardust… It’s a Funny Thing


They take your number and you stand in line and they
watch to see how high you’re gonna climb.
Pat on the back and, “Better luck next time,”
Oh it ain’t nothing.. No, nothing 
but a heartbreak town…

How Do You Feel So Empty… You Want to Let it All Go?

How do you get that lonely? How do you hurt that bad? 
To make you make the call, that havin’ no life at all
Is better than the life that you had? 
How do you feel so empty, you want to let it all go? 
How do you get that lonely… and nobody know?

Sing to Me the Song of the Stars…

zanze ww truth glam affair.png

There’s a song that’s inside of my soul.
It’s the one that I’ve tried to write
over and over again.
I’m awake in the infinite cold
But You sing to me over
and over and over again…

Five-hundred-and-three days.

Thirteen hours.

Twenty-seven minutes.

Sixteen seconds.

At first, she hadn’t kept track. The knowledge that he’d be back in her arms was enough. The occasional phone call or letter in the mail sent her heart fluttering, and she knew. She knew that in time, he’d be back. There was no need.

But then the calls stopped.

She had just arrived home from work, had barely enough time to remove her shoes at the door before the car pulled into the driveway. At first, she didn’t realize what it was. At first, she didn’t understand that it was “the car.”

Two men clad in blue exited the vehicle.

It was just after five o’clock on a Tuesday when her world came to a screeching halt.

Five-hundred-and-twenty-three days ago.

Thirteen hours.

Twenty-seven minutes.

Fifty-one… Fifty-two… Fifty-three…

In the Mood for a Melody


In the Mood for a Melody.png


And the piano, it sounds like a carnival
And the microphone smells like a beer
And they sit at the bar and put bread in my jar
And say, “Man, what are you doin’ here?”

She approached the piano, her heels clicking lightly against the worn wooden floor beneath her feet, and hid a sad smile as she reached out to move her fingers over the old ivory keys, pulling a layer of dust away with her fingertips.

Somewhere behind her, she heard a man’s voice.

“Do you play?” He asked.

She froze there a second, her hand poised in mid-air. Sometimes, she could still hear the music, still remember the way it felt to bring the old instrument to life. It called to her, much like a siren’s song, but she had denied it for so long.

“It still works,” the man added, sounding almost hopeful. “Might need a bit of tuning, though.”

She turned and tilted her head ever-so-slightly in his direction. “I don’t play anymore,” she said.

“But you used to?”

“Yeah,” she said with a soft nod of her head. “Used to. Don’t anymore.”

The silence hung between them a moment, and then she heard him again, posing the one question she’d never been able to answer for herself, much less to anyone else:

Talkin’ to Your Ghost When I’m Asleep

Oh, you’re never really dead to me
And maybe that’s the mystery of ours.
I used to think when you were gone
I would still hear voices in the halls…

Come Away Little Loss…

zanze slipper blog use this one.png


Sorry, guys. This song has been stuck in my head for days, which of course means I had to use it in a blog post. Most of the time I can’t stand Maroon 5, but something about this song just gives me chills. It just seems so sad.

I love it. I love things, especially music, that evoke some emotion, and this song does that for me. I’ve definitely been in a mood lately. I wouldn’t call it sad, but things have been interesting around here. I’m doing well. Things could be better, but I’m still kicking, as always.

And speaking of still kicking, the amazing Zzoie Dethly is a friend of mine, and the mind behind [ZanZe]. Earlier this year, in true SL fashion, Second Life ate a large portion of her inventory…including a lot of her meshes. Let’s talk about how devastating the mere thought of that is for a second. It’s awful. Meshes are expensive. Custom meshes are even more expensive, and the work that a designer puts into their designs goes on top of all that…

Luckily, she has recovered, and [ZanZe] is back with some awesome new releases! This is the Aisha Dress. It comes in several color options, but we all know I’m a fan of the black and white, so that’s what you get to see here. I love this. It’s just different and fun and perfect for summer.And because I’m landlocked in real life and surrounded by corn, I took myself to the beach today! This is going to go on my list of favorite beaches in SL for sure. Tons of photo ops! But I digress…

It’s going to be a long day, so instead of rambling on about how much I wish I could hit the fast-forward button in life (or, ya know, invent one, because let’s be honest…) I’m just going to leave you with this.

Ready for the details?

Of course you are.
