as simple as that ... I was raised with classical music ... and when I discovered popular music ... it was first the Beatles ... and then Queen I loved them ... could listen to them for hours ... and was just happy ... I'm still a Queen fan ... kinda ... So here 2 of my (many) fav songs ...
'Killer Queen' and 'You Take My Breath Away' Enjoy
today in my lunchbreak, when I was chewing my soft chewing gum, I suddenly bit on something hard ... damn ... my provisorium ... and of course it broke ... So I had to go to the dentist to get a new one ... it doesn't feel too good, but I have an appointment at the dentist for wednesday to get my crown ... so I'll survive ... lol I wonder if I'll be a queen, with 3 crowns then or if I need more ... did I need another reason to stop chewing gum? My dear french LoonAtic sent me the link to this clip this evening ... WARNING ... it is kinda ... erm ... YURGH
kk ... and now I got a problem with my daily portion of chewing gums ... always that clip on my mind ... TY Dom Dom ;-P
erm ... to distract from that ... here is some awesome mad band for you Primus 'live' ... Mr. ClayPool always lets my jaw drop to the floor Enjoy
... Machinima ... I love to create those lil clips in SL ... but I'm aware that I'm far from being good at that ... I'd need better equipment (computer, software), better planning ... and most important ... more time ... Up to now the littles movies always are quite different from the original idea ... lol
so I'd like to show you a machinima created by Bryn Oh, an amazing SL artist ... I love the atmosphere in those installations ... and the story of the Rabbicorn moved me ...
an as a contrast ... back to something slightly harder ;-) Misfits with 'Die Die Die, My Darling' Enjoy
and because I'm in torturing mood ... *grins* ... here is the same song with one of my 3KS projects ... lol ... I promise, it's not me singing this time ;-P ...
... Life ... no matter if real life, virtual life, first life, second life or whatever life ... just LIVE your LIFE ... don't get lost ... and don't say you don't have a life ... *hugs* to a very dear friend
A Lennon for L in music ... Julian Lennon ;-) Enjoy
Kulturschock ... the Kulturschock Festival in Koblenz It's a Festival on Friday Dec 2, with 31 bands playing in 10 pubs/clubs/locations ... with only 1 ticket for 5€ you can try to see them all, tho that's almost impossible ... there are several bands I'd like to watch ... but there's one band I definately won't miss ... ... TOXIC WASTE ... /me does the happy dance ;-)))))
I'm so glad we could get those french guys to play at our festival ;-)
Unfortunately there's no 'K' in Toxic Waste ... so I give you another cool band. I've seen them last year at Wallenpop ... and they were awesome So have fun with Krach verKracht which includes 3 very dancable songs ;-) Enjoy
Oh ... and I found another song with 'K' ... *grins* This one goes out to Laila, who wanted to see me and hubby playing bass together ... Now there's usually only 1 bass-player in a band ... and I'm rarely together on stage with my hubby anyway ... so this is prolly the closest you will get of us ... ;-P erm ... guess I could have filed it under 'e' as embarrassing as well ... lol Kick Out The Jams played by one of my 3KS projects (and don't drop off your chair laughing!!!)
Harry (fahr schon mal den Wagen vor) Klein for my french loonatic ... hehe
... cause that's where we spent our summer holiday this year ;-)))
it's a wooden igloo ... on a campsite in Hellevoetsluis (NL) ... and my whole family fell in love with it ;-) So if you should ever happen to visit Hellevoetsluis ... check it out on Camping 't Weergors ... but not on Wallenpop weekend ... that's when we will always occupy it ;-)
and now Elegantly Wasted by INXS ... mmmmhhhh ... what a smexy song ;-P Enjoy
kk ... this might look like cheating ... but I just love it ... and it becomes very obvious when they use words that start with H, like 'hello', 'hotel' or 'hear' ... I can almost hear his accent, when I chat with my french loonatic and he sometimes seems to add or drop 'h' randomly ... so cute ... it just doesn't happen too often ;-P
kk ... I try to have a more H-matching song at least ...
a song from my Southern Rock Past ... ZZTop with Beer Drinkers and Hell Raisers
that's when music is the most fun ... no matter if I listen only or play myself ... any music can groove ... no matter what style ... when it grooves ... my feet start moving all by themselves ... I cannot sit still ... and I start to wiggle ... erm ... kinda ... I cannot dance in RL ... so I better call it hopping or something like that ;-) when it grooves I feel total happiness and can forget what's going on around me ...
well ... as G is for Groove ... here is a hell of a groovy song by Infectious Grooves ... ;-) Enjoy
The Fifth Element ... one of my absolute fav movies funny, exciting and a breathtaking optic ... and one of the highlights that sure gives me goose pimples whenever I hear it ... The Diva song ... enjoy
Guess I'm quite good at embarrassing moments ... I run into them often enough ... Sometimes I know right away 'Ah, shit' ... and in an instant you can read that in my face (I never can hide it) and sometimes it takes me a lil while to realize ... and just blush a lil bit later ... and those moments usually feel like eternity ... *grins*
Eternity by Robbie Williams ... I just love this song, no matter how soppy it might be Enjoy
Oh ... talking of embarrassing ... some years ago I could have died for such a kiss from Robbie ... ;-p o.o ... embarrassing, huh?
The Colour Challenge is taking a break ... time for a BIG TY to Luna ;-)
even tho I wasn't as creative as Rudh, who managed to squeeze all 52 Colours in one post in a real fun way ... I could grab some rain and some sun to join Kaelyn Alecto's idea of a Rainbow for Luna ;-)
there are lots of daemons, demons, Dämonen in my life, I'm pretty sure ...
** I just finished reading 'DAEMON' , a high-tech thriller by Daniel Suarez ... a book I could hardly put aside ... and even tho it seemed a bit exaggerated to me at the end, I sure wanna read part 2 'Freedom' soon.
** my computers (private and at work) are inhabited by DAEMONs as well ... not only because a daemon is a computer program that runs as a background process, rather than being under the direct control of an interactive user, found on any multitasking computer operating systems (wikipedia) ... but because computer can and quite often do break my balls ... erm ... kinda ;-p
** I love my DAEMON outfit from Bare Rose ... kk, it's a Nidhogg ... but I use it as demon outfit ... ;-) ** and I got my personal DAEMONs ... nameless ... hated and loved as well ... I try to fight them now and then ... not sure if I really wanna get rid of them ... they are a part of me ...
and while looking for a DAEMON-song ... I found Fiddler's Green - Victor and his Demons not exactly what I usually listen to ... but I quite like it ;-) enjoy
erm ... C is one of those letters I actually don't like much ... and yesterday, when I wondered about what 'C'-word to use for this post, my lil pea brain was blank ... or maybe I was just tired ... So I asked my french loonatic for a cool C-word and I won't repeat the first words he gave me *grins* Dom Dom sagt (21:52): what is a cool word ? Maria sagt (21:53): don't know ... a word I can blog about ... 'C' is next and I got no idea for it Dom Dom sagt (21:55): chien, collier, caramel, criterium, courge, crédibilité, courir, crayon, circuler, ceindre, crue, création, corolle
kk ... those are french words, but there's no rule that they can't be, is it? I'm not into dogs and collars ... mmmhhh caramel ;-) ... oh ... got it ... cookie, cake and chocolate are C-words too ... and I love them ;-) ... I like to run ... crayons - colours ... I loved that challenge ... and I love to create (even I create chaos mostly) ...
Hey .... C isn't such a bad letter ... it's cool ;-P hehe ... 'cool' is one of my fav words ... and my C-band is 'Les Crevettes' ... a local band I admire ... and I had watched them live again just a few days ago ... so cool - btw. I got them in my sidebar since ages ... I love when Sven does his growling ;-) enjoy
btw. looks like this is a daily challenge ... will see if I can keep up with Mir ... and it's cool that Guen joined too :-))
... when I started to play bass about 30 years ago (OMG ... that long ago !!!), I did so because it had only for strings ... easier than 6 strings to manage for a pea brain like me ;-) I never became a good bass player, but I always had ... and still have lots of fun with my good old '79 Fender Bass ;-)
And when I look at all the cool bass players I got to know over the years (and I'm even married to a bass player ... *grins*) ... I must say, they are quite special somehow ... in a very positive way ... well ... let's have a tasty beer on all the cool bass players ... and listen to Metallica's bassman Cliff Burton ... who was taken away way too early enjoy
... so Luna asked us to show our 15 fav pics at the end of the 52 Colours Challenge ...
wellllllllllll ... I CAN'T DO it ..... it would be easier to name my 15 worst pics or posts ... lol The Challenge has been so much fun ... the year passed by like a month or something ... and when I looked at all the posts, it brought back so many memories ... even some not related to the challenge itself ... lol During the challenge I got to know so many cool co-bloggers ... admired their choices, styles and skills ... and peeped into the world of SL fashion on their blogs ... I grabbed the chance to do quite some nonsense pics ... dived into making lil machinimas (oh ... there's still so much to learn) ... and even created quite some outfits and props, tho most of them not for sale ... I recieved so many nice comments ... (and unfortunately ran out of time to comment on all the other blogs I looked at, sorry) ... a big thank you to all of you ;-))))
As I feel that I did 2 different kind of postings, I cheated a bit and made two Fav-15 collections ... there were those post where I liked the pic itself or the idea behind the post ...
and of course those posts with moving pictures - either anigifs or machinimas - ... plus 1 comic and 1 slideshow ... Tho those posts usually meant a lot of work, they were the most fun to do ... maybe because they often required co-workers ... and I love those girls and guys who helped me there and who were so patient with me ... ;-P
and ... erm ... ok ... there are still 2 colours missing ... PINK and RUBY
PINK is filmed but not cut yet, due to technical problems (and lack of time) RUBY could have been done by now if SL hadn't been bad with me when Rudh was already dressed up and waiting, but all I got was me ruthed and nekkid with a tiny piece of Ruby, no relog, cache clearing, whatever did help ... and when my french loonatic gave me the right tip how to get myself back, it was already too late ... and after that ... see above ... (lack of time) ... But it will be done before Round 2 (starting in January) ... I'm already looking forward to all the new colourful posts, co-working and fun ;-))))
oh ... and before I forget it ... TY Luna, for starting all this ;-)))
so I found an alternative challenge while the 52 Colours Challenge is taking a break ... Got it from Mir's blog ... and tho it seems to be rather a challenge between Mir and Locke, she also kinda invited others to join her. It's an Alphabet Challenge ... I'm not sure if it's daily, weekly, monthly or random ... don't know if there's any rule beside that it's in alphabetical order ... but I usually make my own rules anyway as you prolly have noticed ... *grins* So this challenge for me will be about anything that's on my lil pea brain mind, not necessarily about SL, prolly often without a pic, but hopefully always with a band or a song with a matching letter ;-P
ALTERNATIVE as in option ... I'm always trying to check alternatives ... some ppl say I just cannot make up my mind ... that might be true and be one of my many weaknesses ... but I hate to have to stick to only one given way ... and of course ...
ALTERNATIVE as a musical style which I quite like ;-)
which leads me to my musical A as in ALICE IN CHAINS ... damn ... they have such awesome tunes !!! enjoy
