#214 Catfishing??!

Very recently l crawled out from under my rock and learned about a term that is not only bothersome, it just flat out stinks!!


According to the Urban Dictionary,
Catfishing ls: 
The phenomenon of internet predators that fabricate online identities and entire social circles to trick people into emotional/romantic relationships (over a long period of time).

Possible motivations: revenge, loneliness, curiosity, boredom
The term catfishing was inspired by the 2010 documentary "Catfish."

 lt is my hope that some of you never knew this until reading this. However, l am almost certain that to the majority of you this is not something new.


And what better platform to vet a shenanigan like Catfishing?  Welcome to Second Life!!!

Let's see a show of hands...how many of you have been duped, fooled, made to feel so important..so loved...so needed...so wanted..by another and then :


You are NOT ALONE!!

But here's the thing: it's not just teens...it's adults as well.
On some level Second Life is just walking a tight-rope on the line.
l'm not here to tell you how to run your Second Life, but look at it from both sides and make sure that you are not the one Catfishing or being Catfished.

There are serious legalities involved with being on the wrong end of this. 
Some involve high fines and criminal charges. 

l play my SL with integrity and l  try to keep it as real as possible without jeapordizing my actual life.  
lf you feel like you're being played for a fool, you probably are.

My advice is THROW lT BACK!!

#213 Chandelier

Party girls don't get hurt
Can't feel anything, when will I learn
I push it down, push it down

I'm the one "for a good time call"
Phone's blowin' up, they're ringin' my doorbell
I feel the love, I feel the love

1,2,3 1,2,3 drink
1,2,3 1,2,3 drink
1,2,3 1,2,3 drink

Throw them back, till I lose count
-----------


I'm gonna swing from the chandelier, from the chandelier
I'm gonna live like tomorrow doesn't exist
Like it doesn't exist
I'm gonna fly like a bird through the night, feel my tears as they dry
I'm gonna swing from the chandelier, from the chandelier

And I'm holding on for dear life, won't look down won't open my eyes
Keep my glass full until morning light, 'cause I'm just holding on for tonight
Help me, I'm holding on for dear life, won't look down won't open my eyes
Keep my glass full until morning light, 'cause I'm just holding on for tonight
On for tonight

Sun is up, I'm a mess
Gotta get out now, gotta run from this
Here comes the shame, here comes the shame

1,2,3 1,2,3 drink
1,2,3 1,2,3 drink
1,2,3 1,2,3 drink

Throw them back till I lose count
---------------


I'm gonna swing from the chandelier, from the chandelier
I'm gonna live like tomorrow doesn't exist
Like it doesn't exist
I'm gonna fly like a bird through the night, feel my tears as they dry
I'm gonna swing from the chandelier, from the chandelier

And I'm holding on for dear life, won't look down won't open my eyes
Keep my glass full until morning light, 'cause I'm just holding on for tonight
Help me, I'm holding on for dear life, won't look down won't open my eyes
Keep my glass full until morning light, 'cause I'm just holding on for tonight
On for tonight
On for tonight
Cause i'm just holding on for tonight
No, i'm just holding on for tonight
On for tonight
On for tonight
Cause i'm just holding on for tonight
Cause i'm just holding on for tonight
No, i'm just holding on for tonight
On for tonight
On for tonight

#211 Anything But Ordinary...Please!

Before Second Life, if someone had used the term "Steampunk" I would have looked at them like they had seven heads.
If you still dont know what steampunk is, then let me Wiki it down for you:
 
Steampunk is a sub-genre of science fiction that typically features steam-powered machinery,[1] especially in a setting inspired by industrialized Western civilization during the 19th century. Therefore, steampunk works are often set in an alternative history of the 19th century's British Victorian era or American "Wild West", in a post-apocalyptic future during which steam power has regained mainstream use, or in a fantasy world that similarly employs steam power. Steampunk perhaps most recognizably features anachronistic technologies or retro-futuristic inventions as people in the 19th century might have envisioned them, and is likewise rooted in the era's perspective on fashion, culture, architectural style, and art. Such technology may include fictional machines like those found in the works of H. G. Wells and Jules Verne, or the modern authors Philip Pullman, Scott Westerfeld, Stephen Hunt and China Miéville. Other examples of steampunk contain alternate history-style presentations of such technology as lighter-than-air airships, analog computers, or such digital mechanical computers as Charles Babbage's Analytical Engine.
Steampunk may also, though not necessarily, incorporate additional elements from the genres of fantasy, horror, historical fiction, alternate history, or other branches of speculative fiction, making it often a hybrid genre. The term steampunk's first known appearance was in 1987, though it now retroactively refers to many works of fiction created even as far back as the 1950s or 1960s.



How is that for Geekin' up your Saturday? 

So, yea.... Steampunk has been in SL for a while now. And Berta and Bubi, from Severed Garden, have brought it to you in the form of Agatha!
 
 


Isnt this Adorable????!!!
It comes with a monacle and a hat and boots and a key for your mouth! I only had one issue with the outfit. I have a mesh head and the collar that comes with the dress is just too small for my fat head. So we had to nix the collar. Oh well....

I had to go to the *Rust* by Cica Ghost sim to shoot because it is amazingly steampunk! Great place to take shots or just explore!

 
The hair i am wearing is from Clawtooth (please and thanks). It's one of my favorites and it seems to blend well with just about everything.
 
Lastly, I will leave you with the song in my head today.
Anything but Ordinary..~Avril Lavigne
 
 
 
Until next time..................................♥Ame

#210 Lingerie from League...Only Prettier

Today, I am wearing this Lingerie set from League. The Sakura Corset & Lingerie.
 
I have a thing for vintage looks, so this was an obvious choice. And "yes" I'm still in the same Magika "Moment" hair.  I can't help it! I love this hair.
 
 


 
So I have this country song (sorry to all you country haters)...but its permanently lodged in my brain. As I was shooting these pictures, I was humming this song. So I've decided to share the video!
 
 
 
So put on your sassy Lingerie and strut out to somewhere and be seen. That's my sincere Southern Blogger advice.
 
 
 
 
and remember...
 
♪♫ "Well, I'll keep drinkin' and you'll keep gettin' skinnier!"♪♫
♪♫We're just like you, only Prettier!♪♫
 
 
Until next time..........♥Ame

#209 Honey come Home

I really am trying to catch up from being away for a while. So here is a photo I took at Humanoid
 
If you havent been to Humanoid, even just to look around, you are really missing something
Ame-Azing!
 
 
I love Delirium stlye.As I have said in the past, and will say again: "I love a store that offers full outfits". Yes I admit that I am a lazy shopper. Aren't we all?


 



 
 
 
This is  Kadyla in Blue.
 
Im also wearing the hair "Moment" by Magika.
 
 
Until Next Time................♥ Ame
 
 
 


#208 Bound To You

 
Again, I have been watching my guilty pleasure movie "Burlesque".
I couldnt help but notice the fashion worn in the movie and this one particular song. Now...with that said, I am NO dress designer.  So, I embarqued on an SL journey to find the dress in this video.
 
 
 
In watching this video, one must wonder things like "how many times did she wipe that red lipstick off her teeth?" or "did they sew her into that dress? or was it made of lycra?"  The world may never know.
 
Nevertheless, the journey for this green dress in SL was interesting. Maybe it's just me, but it seems that we are only getting "so far" with mesh. Many of the mesh dresses, shirts, pants...well they are all starting to look the same to me. (Probably just my blahze fickleness in action again.)
 
We have so many incredible designers, I wanted something to at least "fit the bill".  I found this really hot number online...but you can locate it at Wirefly (<===slurl embedded here )
 
 
 
Its as low cut as you can get without showing everything you own. Its called "Night dream" in black.
 
 
 
 
If anyone finds the green dress, it would be great if you could message me. I will still be looking...always shopping!
 
Until Next Time......................♥ Ame
