“My heart will always belong to you.”

TUNES

Davy Jones’ final words to Calypso come when she asks him: “and what of your fate… Davy Jones?” Davy responds softly with, “My heart will always belong to you.” Davy fades away while Calypso smiles, showing genuine love between the two characters.

Lately I was watching the ‘Pirates of the Carribean’ series again and when I saw the new head from BeSpoke, I totally had to do a picture inspired by Davy Jones. Davy Jones even got his own theme song for the movies and I had to share that above in the tunes link. I was playing that kinda in circles when I did work on the picture. It so very well describes the 2 souls in Davy Jones chest. He once was a good man and had loving heart and in the end he full of anger and fury – I love how the song does reflect exactly that.

The amazing “Monster Cthulhu” head from BeSpoke you can find at the actual round of Engine Room. It does have neck sizes for male and female and all that amazing skin colors you know from BeSpoke. Engine Room is one of my favorite events during the year, as you can find so many different things for a steampunk or diesel – or aether punk styles and sceneries. I simply love that styles. The lovely coat I am wearing as well is available at the Engine Room. Toksik made this amazing ornamented and incredible textured long coat as their exclusive for the event. I does come with a huge color HUD. For my set I used new leases from Engine Room only, too, to show you what amazing backgrounds you can create 😉

The event is open until the 20th or April if you want to take a look by yourself – taxi is in the credits below, just click the “Engine Room” letters 🙂

What To Wear? What To Wear?

It’s another bright, new day in Hornet City. Well, maybe bright, if it weren’t for the heavy layer of smog that hung over the city like a shroud. Decade after decade of mechanisms spewing caustic smoke into the air and everything is permanently marked with soot and smut.

Despite all the pollution, life goes on. After a decontamination shower, since water is affordable only by the uber wealthy, I stand on the reclaimator. Natural resources are long gone, so reclaimators were created to recycle and reuse old items.

What shall I wear today?

Hair – bright red with a black streak, pulled into a ponytail.
Eyes – metallic gold with extended vision capabilities.
Outfit – typical black jumpsuit of the worker class.
Footwear – typical black boots of the worker class.

Ah, but what is this? Something new on the menu! It must be the bonus I was promised for exceeding my monthly production quota. An upgrade!

As instructed, I insert my hands deep into the open slots in the wall. Suddenly my arms are engulfed in a steel cage and I am unable to move away. The sharp pain lasts only seconds, but it is enough to make me dizzy.

I do not know how long I am trapped in the reclaimator’s unrelenting grip when the machine finally beeps three times and releases its hold.

Trembling, I pull my arms free and find my hands and forearms gone and replaced by mechanicals. Cables, pistons and gears move with precision as I flex long, metal fingers. Only my palms are covered by wrapped leather pieces.

The caps on my fingertips appear hinged and an odd button is on the inside of both wrists. When pressed, the fingertip caps flip back and long, sharp metal claws extend out of my fingers another two inches.

My eyes gleam with excitement as I admire my new upgrade.

“Wicked.”

Survival Of The Fittest

Survival Of The Fittest

To say the world has changed is an understatement of biblical proportion. Damn humans and their damn weapons. Good riddance to them all!

They thought theirs was the superior intellect. Sure, they harnessed nuclear weapons and developed biological warfare. Then they were stupid enough to combine the two and created the Apocalypse.

The global holocaust that followed eliminated 95% of the human population. The remaining survivors were not so lucky. Many died a very slow and very agonizing death. The rest, those immune to the manufactured biological agents were nothing more than mindless lumps with the mental acuity of a rock.

Another assumption the human race miscalculated was that cockroaches would be the only living creatures to survive the devastation. Oh, they survived and grew to the size of horses. What they did expect was us to endure – the Mice.

The humans underestimated our intelligence and our strength. Where their weapons wiped them off the face of the earth, the Mice were enhanced by them. We grew in size that exceeded the largest humans and our intelligence quotient far surpassed their most learned scholars.

We, the Mice, took control when the Apocalypse came. Not the way the human’s would when the strong bully the weak. No, the Mice organized the survivors, all the species of animals that did not fall. We gathered food, built shelters, tended the injured. Everyone was treated with fairness and compassion. Everyone has a job to do and no one is better or worse than their neighbor.

Our cousins, the Rats, also grew in size that slightly eclipsed the Mice, though their brainpans grew to a more moderate level. The Rats are the laborers in this new world – the muscle that carries out the jobs that require brute strength.

It’s no Utopia – the human’s arrogance saw to that. But the species that lived to tell the tale of the Human Apocalypse will not make the same mistakes. We learned. We adapted.

We are the future.

Black and orange stray cat sittin’ on a fence

I’m a feline Casanova, hey man that’s that
Get a shoe thrown at me from a mean old man
Get my dinner from a garbage can

Wicca’s Originals @ Salvage Station // November 20th – December 20th

The world has ended. There was once a Before. Now it is just After.
At least, the world we knew. When food was a matter of walking into a store or pulling up to a drive through window. When water and power was piped into your homes and the Internet was a source of communication and entertainment. It’s all gone now.
The radiation left the ground barren and broken. Food now comes from the only other survivors of the apocalypse – the cockroaches. Clean water doesn’t exist – water barely exists. I am lucky to find water at all.
Supplies of any kind are long gone. The looters saw to that. What little I have I stole from the dead, including the shirt off a corpse’s back. My sneakers barely have any rubber sole left and my toes are already poking through ever growing holes. I am no better than a vulture picking bones clean. I am a scavenger…
Back in the time Before, I was beautiful. My skin had a peaches-and-cream glow and was soft as silk. Once long, golden blond hair crowned my head. I was carefree and happy. My parents had money and I lived a charmed and privileged life.
Now After, my face is scarred by radiation burns and my skin is so badly cracked that it’s bleeding. Only chopped and uneven brittle strands of hair peek out beneath a filthy cap. A plastic bag holds my few precious possessions.
Everyone i knew is dead. My parents and grandparents were all at some gala/fund raiser/charity event -whatever the cause of the month was, while I was in the underground parking garage where we lived. One minute I was getting out of my Mercedes and the next the building seemed to collapse around me. How I survived, I will never understand.
There is nowhere safe. It is too hot to move around by day, so I have to find a small hole or tiny space in a collapsed building to hide and sleep. I know what will happen if I am caught by one of the gangs. I know what they do to women. I know all too well.
Soon I will be ready to leave the city. It’s taken weeks to gather what I need and make my way to the docks. Better to take my chances in the wilderness than here among the other survivors who kill for no other reason than they can. I learned to sail when I was young and can handle a sail boat on my own. If I can make it out of the city, I will head for the ocean and …
What was that noise? I clutch my meager belongs to my chest and draw up into a tight ball. If I stay small and quiet, maybe they won’t find me. Just maybe i can survive another day. Just maybe … <gasp>
… to be continued …

We are the warriors that built this town…

As a child you would wait
And watch from far away
But you always knew that you’d be the one
That work while they all play
In youth you’d lay
Awake at night and scheme
Of all the things that you would change
But it was just a dream

Insatiable Hunger

Hunger. Hunger is my passion. Hunger is my existence. Now, hunger is my curse. Hunger is my punishment. Eternal hunger. Once, food was plentiful. I would gorge myself on the sweet, succulent meat. Their fear made the flavor all that more tantalizing. I did not eat out of need or survival. I ate because I could, because it was there. My gluttony drove my hunger and hunger drove my gluttony.
I was insatiable. My hunger was uncontrollable. I devoured them all. Large and small. Young and old. So delectable, I could not stop.
They bred so often and so quickly, I never considered the tasty morsels would be no more. Millions upon millions upon millions. So much food. There is nothing left now. Gone. All gone. The seemingly endless supply of food – gone.
The bones are picked clean and left as a taunting reminder of what once was and will never be again. Bones scattered everywhere I look. Snap and crack as I walk over them. Dry. Brittle. Tasteless.
No more food. There will be no more. I ate it all.
Hunger is my punishment. Hunger is my curse.

Get some Rest @ Salvage Station

In 2 days we will have a new event on the grid run by Second Life Syndicate called “Salvage Station”! It is right down my alley as it os a post apocalyptic themed event with all kind of genres in it! Even if it takes 2 more days for the event to open, I have the greet pleasure to show you some of the goodies, that you will be able to get there.

Lets start with that amazing top from AsteroidBox. The “Survivor Shirt” fits Maitreya Lara, Maitreya Flat, Belleza Freya, Legacy Female, Belleza Jake, Legacy Male bodies. Just be aware, that the chest slides on the female options have been disable for the effect of rigid armor. Other than that, there are 8 color options available with each purchase including 8 options for the armor vest, 6 options for the shoulder and other straps, 5 metal options, 5 options for the metal arm plate and bloody and clean options for the bandage. The fatpack includes all color / pattern options for the sweater. The bandage can be worn as a separate accessory too.

When I saw the vendor picture of the cool “Torn Leg Trousers” from Hotdog, I really had a huge smile in my face, when I realized, that the leg prosthetic he is wearing is the “Alyx Leg”, the collaboration we did with DRD. I loved the concept about the “one leg ripped off” style a lot and so I had to wear them for my first picture for that event – not to mention they worked so well with one of the newest releases from L’Emporio&PL, the “Zohar” boots. You will find them at the actual round of Man Cave. They are rigged for all the popular bodies (male and female).

The cool and lightly messy/loosely  looking hair (I love messy looking hair) was made by no.match and you can find it in many different colors at the actual round of Tres Chic.

I have a feeling that this event will be an amazing experience as they have planned so much more than just a sales event. They have the “Wastelands” as special guess for the vent and I heard about amazing activities and even interactive fun which will happen on the event sim. You should NOT miss that amazing event 😉

Wicca’s Originals @ Necrotize // October 20th – November 20th

Introducing the Deacon Arms, by Wicca’s Originals.

There are disturbing rumors about the process for augmenting into this ghoulish set of sleeves, and speculation that it has been known to change people.

First, your arms are cast in a silicone-based substance for a skin-tight fit. Once that has been done, the hooked spines themselves are inserted one at a time, with a numbing anesthetic inserted through both sleeve and flesh.

Lastly, the long, claw-like nails are secured to the fingers. After the anesthetic agents wear off, the constant aching pain felt by the wearer is said to cause some to go mad, and succumb to a primal need to hunt and inflict pain on others. But all of this could just be urban legend; maybe it’s just a sleeve that can be worn to accessorize a darker style after all.

Are you brave enough to find out?

The Deacon Arms come in 10 sleeve colors and have 10 metal color options, as well as the ability to hide individual rows of spikes.

They are fitted for Maitreya, Legacy (Female & Male), and Gianni bodies.
