Intending to burn, pretending to fight it
Everyone learns faster on fire
Things took a turn, lost all desire
You live and you burn
You live and…
Alkaline Trio, ♫Burn♫
Here it is…the 600th post of my blogging career. It’s not an anniversary post as that is nearly an entire month away from now but for me to have been able to do this in that short of time still kind of blows my mind. To be honest when I was asked what I was going to do for this particular blog (at the time) I didn’t know but I feel what I did put together is pretty cool and hope those who see it enjoy it like I did making it.
This isn’t going to be too long of a post as it isn’t as much a feature post as it is me allowing my creative outlet to do the talking for me; I’m also going to play around with the format a little compared to previous posts just to see if what I do fits a little better.
If you aren’t progressing then you’re regressing right?
I’ve loved the song “Burn” by Alkaline Trio for as long as I can remember and a lot longer then I’ve ever been a resident in Second Life and to be able to come up with a pretty cool idea to support it is really cool. It took the help of Animosity Poses “Yusuke” pose pack and props to bring this all together with the lighter and fire.
I feel kinda bad for the Kebab stand at Midnight Glory that essentially was burned down to the ground but I’m sure that they have coverage to build a new one…in fact I’m betting it’s already been replaced by now.
While this pose pack is not a featured item per say it is definitely worth being given a spotlight to as it is a vital part of helping me put together this photo. The pack contains 5 poses with a bonus pose included that you can only get by buying the full pack (the rest of the poses can be purchased singly) with a cigarette prop for your mouth, several different lighter props (because I enjoy cards I used the ace version), a gas can and a trail of fire which you can see in part within my photo.
There’s something about this set that tells me that I’m going to be using it again down the road for future projects; it is just that cool not to.
My main feature for this blog is the “Immortal Envy” tattoo from MooLoo Body Art. It has a lot of great detail in it and has various elements of mythological lore such as Medusa and Zeus along with clouds and reapers holding a very long and scary snake. I thought it was fitting that if I was going to portray an unhinged arsonist that this would be the perfect way to go.
I find it really interesting that above the waist line written in a form of calligraphy “Gods Envy Us” which is something that could provoke conversation or philosophical debate of some sort. Other than the fact I think it is a really cool looking tattoo I don’t really have any kind of hidden meaning behind it as I sometimes do in my photos if people pick up on them.
This is also the second time with a tattoo that I’ve worn it with a fresh ink appeal as I am usually a fan of worn tattoos and showing that they’ve been there for a span of time. In this blog though to have the ink seem bolder as the imagery itself is bold works well in my eyes.

For my last bit of news, I am proud to announce that very soon I will be blogging for PGP (Pale Girl Productions) for three events this year that include: Skin Fair, Vintage Fair and new to this year, Ark. I am super excited to be able to ply my trade for these events and be able to cover them for These Conversations Kill. It is a distinct honor and when more information is available I’ll be sure to pass it on to all of you.
I have also been given a chance as a blogger to represent Lock&Tuft which most of you know is a hair store that is potentially expanding their brand to other things or so I have heard. I am actually wearing one of their hairs in this blog’s photo but as it is not as defined due to lighting and shadow, I will be making sure I wear it in another photograph.
There are also several other brands that I have applied to be a spokesperson for but as of now until I know for sure if I’ve been added to their team I will not say by name but I will say that if I do get the chance to work with them I will be very excited and will give them the very best that I can as I do with each store that I represent.
On that note I think it is time to turn you all over to the very abbreviated credits and part for now. Be sure to check out Midnight Glory if you are a blogger or photographer as it is a great urban place that is just right for gritty type photos. That’s all I got for now so be well until next time!
Like hell we are anxiously waiting
Like hell burning silently strong
Somehow we fell down by the wayside
And somehow this hell is home
