Simple Man (Standing On A Poseball)

What poses fit you?
What do you love in a pose?
Berry asks us all to Strike A Pose for her weekly meme this week.

I have 3 favourite pose makers, in no particular order.... so I flipped a coin and decided to list them in reverse alphabetical.

R) Rack Poses
Even before I started blogging, I knew Rack Poses, at least the poses that had captured my attention at the adult store. If you know what I mean.
It was only later that I realized that Kirsty had PG poses also, and in the past half year she's put a lot of her energy into expanding the PG pose store, and joining many events.
This pose I'm using now is from her Sam Collection of male poses.

K) Kuro In Motion
I had been a fan of Luana's furniture store for a long time, and when she said she was going to try making poses I was excited to see what she would come up with. Since starting Kuro In Motion, she has created quite a collection of unique poses. Her work has always seemed to capture much emotion, and often they include props, such as the mirror in the photo I've included here, from her pose Shattered.

A) an Lar Poses
I am good friends with Katya of An Lar Poses, and I've seen how hard she works on her store and everything else she does in Second Life. Cute, sexy, angry, her poses cover the spectrum of feeling, and need to be tried.
You Are My Heart is at Pose Fair 2014 right now, and includes the chalkboard and blocks.

"Simple Man" by Lynyrd Skynyrd
Boy, don't you worry.
You'll find yourself.
Follow your heart,
And nothing else.
You can do this,
If you try.
All that I want for you my son,
Is to be satisfied.

And be a simple kind of man.
Be something you love and understand.
Baby, be a simple kind of man.
Oh won't you do this for me son,
If you can?

Don't Stand So Close To Me

Pose Fair 2014 opened a couple days ago, and I have already featured several poses that can be found there.
I do have one more to show you though! Katya of An Lar Poses has created a really cute set called You Are My Heart, with a little help from Ispachi, who made original mesh props for the set.

The song I picked to go with the pose might be a little bit of a twist on the intention of the pose, but it works. Enjoy, and go visit Pose Fair 2014!

"Don't Stand So Close To Me" by The Police
Her friends are so jealous
You know how bad girls get
Sometimes it's not so easy
To be the teacher's pet

The Middle

Getting stuck in the middle can be a really uncomfortable feeling.
Being forced into an awkward position between two fighting friends is one of the worst places to be.
Trapped in an airplane with snoring or overly chatty passengers on either side... not fun!
The child of divorced parents? That can be terrible if they are bitter.

Luana from Kuro In Motion has a new pose called "Masquerade", which is THE GOOD KIND OF BEING IN THE MIDDLE!

"Stuck In The Middle With You" by Stealers Wheel
Yes, I'm stuck in the middle with you,
And I'm wondering what it is I should do
It's so hard to keep this smile from my face,
Losing control, and I'm all over the place

New Coat Of Paint

Wine and Food.
That's what I think of when I hear the word Tuscany. And it appears the the creators at TLC's The Garden were thinking the same thing this month.
My man Gazi was kind enough to leave all of the TLC items laying around, so I repurposed them for a pose that I wanted to do with Aledia. Luana of Kuro In Motion has several poses coming for Pose Fair, and this one, called "Powerless" gave me the feeling of holding up someone who'd had just a little too much.
Overindulgence went perfectly with the wine and food idea in the Tuscany theme, at least in my mind!

Tom Waits - "New Coat Of Paint"
Let's put a new coat of paint on this lonesome old town
Set 'em up, we'll be knockin' em down.
You wear a dress, baby, and I'll wear a tie.
We'll laugh at that old bloodshot moon in that burgundy sky
All your scribbled lovedreams, are lost or thrown away,
Here amidst the shuffle of an overflowing day
Our love needs a transfusion so let's shoot it full of wine
Fishin' for a good time starts with throwin' in your line.

The Truth

"Shattered", the new pose from Kuro In Motion (which is available at Pose Fair 2014), immediately invoked feelings of loneliness in me.
The broken mirror, the hunched shoulders, there is just such sadness there. I was excited to see what I could do with this pose, but I was worried about finding a song to match it.
Luckily, my favourite radio station played one last night that was perfect... so much sad in one blog post, I'd better go watch a couple comedies to cheer up!

"The Truth" by Jason Aldean
Tell 'em I'm out on the road
With some old rock and roll band
Living like a gypsy can

Just don't tell 'em I've gone crazy
That I'm still strung out over you
Tell 'em anythin' you want to
Just don't tell 'em all the truth
Yeah, don't tell 'em all the truth

Time For Change

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

Strawberry's Meme during the first week of March was about blogging things that are entirely new to you. Well, this blog post isn't entirely new since I started it last month and just getting a chance to finish it now, but how about a D for my effort?

The new skin I tried was something from Swallow. It's a younger looking skin than I usually wear, but it had appliers so that is always a huge bonus. My man Gazi recommended Grasp for the clothing that I've never tried before. It's definitely nice stuff, I'll shop there again.

The scene in the background was new to me because it wasn't mine. You can see it all in Kat's blog post.

Breaking Out

Arcade is running now, and Sorgo has an "International Collection" that made me think of being on the run, hiding out on a tropical island.
Or, a great excuse to go barefoot and wear a summer shade in my Zaara suit, and try some new windlights!

"Breaking Out, Breaking Down" by Bullet For My Valentine

Each day will bring us brand new scars
(What are we fighting for)
We cannot live like this no more
'Cause in the thick of darkened days, we know

We could blame the world forever
We could just escape together
So are we breaking out, or are we breaking down
We can't blame this world forever
