A Colorful Tuesday

Topless Tuesday 05 June 2018
It’s no secret that I have an obsession with – even a fetish for – women’s breasts. Some of this is, indeed, sexual. Afterall, my bi-sexuality leans 90% women so it’s ingrained in who I am. But part of my obsession is that breasts are treated with misogynistic inequality. In many places in and out of Second Life women must cover thier torsos when men are not required to do so. To me the eunequal treatment is a lack of maturity. If someone can’t handle the sight of a woman’s breasts, what other problems do they have?

Like skin color (AKA, race). You don’t have to be on Twitter or Facebook or other social media to have seen the rash of people behaving badly when they see a person of color. Here’s the most recent example I’ve seen:

One of my first thoughts was “I’m embarrassed to be white.” Nearly every instance I’ve seen of this sort of abuse involves someone white being stupid. White pride, huh? Does someone have to work at being white? And is this how they practice? This lady probably needs more practice as she’s driving a Japanese car.

In Real Life (iRL) I’m a pasty white Irish girl, about to turn 30 and giving into gravity. I wish my iRL boobs were as perky as my SL ones*. But moreso lately I wish I could be polychromatic. Above I’m wearing Lumae’s Eirtae T9 Java Freckles but in shorthand I call it Chocolate. When i’m not in the mood to be my usual dark blue (Lumae’s Adore Aegean skin) or another color I usually wear this skin rather than one of my several Caucasian skins. Just not comfortable being white any more.

If only I could color-shift in Real Life as I do in Second Life.

Profile Feed Rant

Every now and then I declare the Second Life Profile  “Feed” to be dead as if it is up to me to decide. Navigation buttons disappear, posts duplicate or don’t show up, clicks don’t record. And why does the Messages option still appear when the feature no longer exists? There are quite a few issues anyone would admit. When it works, though, I wish for new features. A super new one would be the ability to record GIFs and short videos for posting.

The link in the post comments leads to a Gyazo clip showing the vehicle bouncing about in place. Being able to post the video in the first place would have been ideal. What features would you like to see for the Feed? Leave a comment below.

Bay City 10th Anniversary Concert

Tenth Concert Poster 3-4 ratio

BAY CITY, SL (22 April, 2018) – As part of Bay City’s Tenth Anniversary, enjoy a music extravaganza in the Bay City Fairgrounds on the 20th of May!

Performing will be GOSPEED RASERE from 12:30-1:30 p.m. SLT, followed by PARKER STATIC from 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m., ERIKA ORDINARY from 2:30-3:30 p.m. SLT, and finally STRATUS MACTAVISH from 3:30-4:30 p.m. SLT.

GOSPEED RASERE (12:30-1:30 P.M. SLT)

“GoSpeed is a Second Life DJ and online radio station owner, providing KONA Stream since 2007. As well as spinning classic hits of the 60s, 70s, 80s, and today, she is a Published author and the current reigning “Miss Bay City.”

PARKER STATIC (1:30-2:30 P.M. SLT)

“Parker Static started singing at a very early age, being in a musical family her passion for singing was inevitable. With a sultry sound, Parker’s amazing voice has given her the ability to move from Pop to Ballads, Jazz, Country, RandB, Soft Rock and more. Parker has also won many awards for her singing, such as “Showtime Magazine TOP 10 performers in SL” and “The Soul Train’s Best Female entertainer of the year.” She’s fun and vivacious and her shows have something for everyone!”

ERIKA ORDINARY (2:30-3:30 p.m. SLT)

“Erika has a wonderfully expressive voice that can be powerful but also is pleasantly delicate and understated. She brings life to the songs she selects and a window to her soul in songs of her own. She plays several instruments, but primarily sticks with guitar and ukulele. She especially loves the juxtaposition of darker themed songs played on such a bright, happy instrument as the ukulele. Ask her to play In The Pines by Leadbelly or Henry Lee by Nick Cave, and you’ll get the idea.”

STRATUS MACTAVISH (3:30-4:30 p.m. SLT)

“Stratus sings and plays with an easy-going soft, smooth and intimate sound that draws his audience, occasionally bursting out with his powerful vocal range. Stratus has a light guitar playing style, showcasing bright acoustic arrangements of popular songs, plus a few atypical acoustic arrangements of songs outside the acoustic genre.”

Event held at the Bay City Fairgrounds in North Channel (SLurl), easily accessible by boat, car, walking , or teleport, and the end location of this year’s parade. Come on down!
