I thought I was smart, I thought I was right
I thought it better not to fight
I thought there was a virtue in always being cool
The Flaming Lips, ♫Fight Test♫
As I begin to write this I find myself thinking about the slight difference the scene for this blog as it relates to my previous body of work. I definitely tried to make sure that I got a bit more color involved as well as have shadows playing about my face as well. Throw in the expression on my face as a part of a candy bar hangs from my mouth.
The scene also begs to ask the question of what am I looking at that cannot be seen? Is it a person or is it one of the weird cats that hang out in the apartment doing something…or am I just in the throws of a natural high after playing the Starman arcade game and getting a personal high score? Those are but a few to contemplate as I encourage you to listen to the soundtrack for this post. It’s a pretty funky tune and also the first time that I’ve used The Flaming Lips for this blog.
Lately I’ve learned to adjust myself with taking more close-up photos which help with showing hairstyles such as “Ron” by Lock&Tuft. This style is similar to the Dallas hair (it’s less wispy at the top) and good for summer with a nice shaved back and sides to not only look good but be comfortable as well. In the real world I can’t really stand to have my hair very long (as I’ve gotten older it’s become more and more) but this type of style would certainly work for me.

I‘ve noticed that for a time (not as much recently) there was slight backlash over stores creating edible props like the “Twerx Bar” by Junk Food (which is fashioned after Twix obviously). These kinds of props I think are fun and I’m glad for stores like Junk Food to be able to bring us facsimile’s of some of the world’s most favorite stuff to eat whether it be chips or even alcoholic staples. Sure they closely resemble these brands but they are not copying exactly an intellectual property which would be against the TOS by Linden Labs. I’m not looking to spark a debate or get into some kind of verbal war with anyone who disagrees with my view because I believe that it helps enhance our scenes.
I’m also still very enamored by the “Tom” skin from Sessions Skins and I feel like it will be a long time (even after a new male face from them is released) that I change how I look for more than just a photo. This feels a lot like how I see my virtual self and I know I’ve seen a lot of people that have purchased it because of who the face is based on (Tom Ellis the actor who portrays the title character on the Netflix show, Lucifer). I have never really seen the show other than bits and pieces so it’s not me jumping on a bandwagon, I think he has a charming look to him and as a blogger and even for every day use, the style suits me.
As a final note, I really like the “Damage T” from BlankLine that is currently at TMD for another few days. Clothing that has the worn look (and not brand new off the rack) tends to excite me because it doesn’t look like I just got home from the store and put it on. It has character and things with character I’m very good with and also on the plus side getting the fatpack (which is a super huge value) gives you the added shorts for a complete outfit. Look for me to probably do a scene where you can see the whole thing probably in the near future.
Hopefully I’ll be getting on a more regular schedule again with blogging soon as there’s plenty of things I have ideas for just have to get there!
I’m the guy on the corner that is slightly peculiar but fun and funky.
