I have always so many visions in my head about dance videos and how I wish them to appear. Usually traditionally I’ve always attached a story to them but these days the music track is the story by its sound and feeling.

These dances from Kayla Brenda are just really amazing.

Some of the movements are seriously out of this world. (No pun intended.) If I were in reality to try them I’m sure I’d probably break a hip or two and maybe spend months recovering in the bone unit because I flipped the wrong way!!

Every single time Jonny from Paragon introduces me to the next dancers I get excited and feel truly blessed to be part of all this. Bit like SL history in the making.

Kayla’s dances are certainly cutting edge and as I watch her real life videos I see myself replicating her virtually. We certainly have another world!

Anyhow less of the ramble and more if the video.

Introducing the Kayla Heels dance from Paragon Animations now at the EQUAL10 Event

━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
Product Description
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━

A groundbreaking dance animation that is unique on the grid since its release…

Performance captured by Kayla Brenda, based on her YouTube Heels & Floorwork choreography that has 3.25 million views as seen here:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qx77SvakpgA

Heels dance style is a bold new trendy dance that combines the attitude and energy of hip-hop, jazz technique, and the sensuality and glamor of burlesque. Dancers always perform and practice dancing in high heels. In dance, floorwork refers to movements performed on the floor. In a social media world saturated by this trendy dance, Kayla stands out bringing a “wow” factor to her floorwork with a unique edge to her style — feats of acrobatics.

Originally danced to “Skin” by Rihanna. Tempo = 127.0 BPM

Orange is the new Halloween Black

Orange is the new Halloween Black

I decided Orange is the new black for Halloween. I should refer to it as amber but orange suits my need to have that label for the blog.

It’s Monday and the start of yet another week of our odd lives we are currently living.

I don’t know about many of you but I’m certainly questioning things a lot more about our daily lives pre Covid and the many things we used to do and considered a must and put up with.

I’ve questioned dress codes to do a job given let’s face it many have sat in their pyjamas for 6 months doing their jobs at previous or even better standards.

The fact that some would feel bullied and accepted that behaviour from people when in actual fact those bullies are no better than the rest of us. They have no right to impact anyone based on their ego.

So does how you dress matter? Not really. It’s just as a society we set ourselves all these rights of passage that we walk and accept as gospel. But I am sure I’m not the only one who is learning that’s a whole load of tosh.

There’s a whole load of tosh that I consider these days and ask myself why do I need to and remind myself how short life actually is. I’m the god of my own destiny and need to realise that. So do you all.

Seize your new Orange and sizzle this Halloween!

Anyhow enough of that.

I have nothing to say. Just watch and enjoy this amazing dance from Paragon Dance Animations. The Alia Mohamed drum belly dances.

If I had better graphics you would see how strong that shake is but I had to turn it down a bit sadly.

Enjoy. Oh and Happy Sunday!

Alia Mohamed Belly dances

Alia Mohamed Belly dances

I’ve been so excited to show you these dances I literally cannot wait till Saturday to do so.

Let’s start the week with the latest Dances from Paragon Dance Animations, the Alia Vintage Belly dances. I’m still in the snow mode because of the very intrinsic hand and finger movements.

Now if you haven’t noticed my style is always to use different music tracks so that you can appreciate the versatility of any dance. So watch with an open mind.

Honestly I really loved making this particular video. I hope you enjoy watching.

I actually haven’t much to say today because I’m right now having what’s left of my day off.

I booked this day weeks ago and for the life of me can’t remember why.

Suffice to say I’m sure someone is ultimately annoyed with me right now as I clearly forgot something.

Did I do anything? Nope. I had a slow morning relaxing. A lovely shower and then spent a gazillions minutes playing with TikTok!!

The addiction is real but I’m sure I’ll be bored soon. It’s not like anyone watches them apart from me. 😂😂😂

Seriously I spend ages just laughing at myself.

Here have a TikTok while you admire my virtual me.

It’s part of my contribution to the whole #challengeaccepted

Clearly I chose to do it differently.

I nearly forgot to send this blog out.

I’ve been lost in films and rl and totally forgot. Shocking I know!

It’s a dance video. Because frankly why not.

Shot on location at my home which I changed yet again.

Hope you enjoy. It’s simple and no mega effects.

Rome wasn’t built in a day

Rome wasn’t built in a day

Listen here.

Rome wasn’t built in a day. So why do people expect change to happen over night?

Explain this to me and I’ll give you £100 for your answer.

Let’s face it, you aren’t going to get that £100. For I would need to have exacted my own change in order to have the spare £100 to give you.

Why? Because nothing worth it’s weight happens in an instant in time. For change to happen, you can wait another lifetime to see it’s results, and then some. That’s just life.

Now just get on with your day and think long and hard, why you read this and what you took away from it.

I’m off now to make a tea and take a selfie.

Va Gina on the beach

Va Gina on the beach

Meet Va Gina (pronounced VaGeena).

She is the sister of Marika. She has no filter and can be offensive. Va Gina is old school and says it how she sees it.

Va Gina like Marika has a penchant for cute guys and loves to spend time tanning . In fact her addiction to tanning is contrary to good advice.

Over the next few months you will see more of Va Gina and her rather throaty voice.

What is her occupation? You will find out!

The moment I lay my head

It’s Saturday night in the early hours if Sunday morning and I am just about to fall asleep.

I’ve not much to say because frankly I want to close my eyes and fall into a dream. In the meantime I’ll dance myself to sleep.

Goodnight and enjoy the video.

New kid in town

New kid in town

The Chimpanzee just did it for me!

Despite my classy look there was me jumping up and down like a banshee wetting myself with excitement when the chimp came out the box.

But then when the second one came out, my shrieks could be heard right across the meta verse.

You see for the past few years in Sansar I’m known as “her with the monkey”.

It became a special signature to me and I’ve always wanted to replicate it in second life but never met the perfect monkey. Till now.

So I may look a bit posh nosh but believe me I’m all down with the animals enjoying their wonderful animations.

So the chimpanzee is part of the HullabaZoo event. You really want to go. If you are like me and love all things furrie and cute. There’s so much more I’m going to show you over the coming weeks from both HullabaZoo and EQUAL10.

Now the video….
