Digital Art

Digital Art

I think we can often overlook how beautiful art can be. It’s easy to do so because there is so much that surrounds us.

I often stop and look and just appreciate what I see and just think wow! Digital Art in Second Life is one such part of creation that I look at and each time think wow.

I appreciate the time and creative thought that the person behind these works must take to bring these ideas into our virtual world.

Any form of artistic creation makes our world a vibrant backdrop. Enjoy…..

I’ve just been watching Sherlock Holmes with Robert Downey Junior and Jude Law. Why haven’t I seen this before?

Great film and the sight of Robert Downey naked strapped to a bed with a lovely floral pillow for his modesty. Well that made the film!!!

I’ve never really been into Sherlock Holmes, mainly because I’m more a modernist type film buff. When I say modernist, I mean in terms of look and era. So maybe I change my mind now.

In other news Drax sent this following link to a few and I watched. Then I watched a second time.

It really is interesting and if you don’t mind subtitles it’s worth watching due to the subject. It does make you think. I say no more.

The Tutorial

The Tutorial

It had to done right? I mean you agree? Thelma had to be given a job.

Not just any job, she has been entrusted with doing the Bite Size tutorials and using her very extensive knowledge to impart skills to her viewers.

Of course she has her own style. In that now Thelma feels part of the work force again and will earn pennies for little Trevor. Trevor is an aspiring child model and Thelma needs to ensure he gets the best portfolio for him.

Bite size. It’s the way to go.

What can I say

What can I say

I’ve not been feeling the greatest this past week. I’ve slept on and off the past few days. Hence no blogs or videos. Apologies.

I’m feeling disturbed to the point that I have to lay here in bed writing this. It’s so late but I slept so much today I’m now wide awake.

Remember the Mandela Effect?

It feels like currently right now the world is experiencing this.

People are genuinely believing this pandemic doesn’t exist and it’s a form of control by governments! The other side (people like me) thinking vastly differently and that we need to eradicate this.

No this doesn’t refer to two sides of my mind. This is about two individuals living the same time but walking a different but same path. Seeing the same things but the perceptive belief is vastly different.

It is quite scary how there are the people like me who are understanding what is going on and what we need to do. It’s the others that scare me. They’re so caught up in their theories and truly believe them.

It’s a form of insanity to me to hear how people believe, truly believe that governments are doing this to control them. What on earth are these people listening to?

There’s no logic in their defence and not for one second do they notice the glaringly obvious . What government chooses to lose its economy willingly? Why?

I’m not keen on politicians at the best of times. They’re all flawed with one or other things. However I’m not daft enough to believe governments around the world are deliberately sabotaging their people and economies to gain some kind of mind control over their populations.

That sounds a little bit like cray crazy to me. Ok. A lot!!! So explain to me this vastly different set of views? How did it happen? Where did it start?

I have a theory. The Mandela Effect. It’s out of control. It’s slowly seeping and spreading and dividing people.

You can see it in not only the Pandemic but also the very divided cultural and social beliefs.

It’s the year 2021 and we have just stepped 5 feet back against the direction we were meant to be heading

Does that surprise me at all? Not really. Humanity hasn’t learnt its lessons yet and has somewhat of a long journey to go.

Humans are their own worst enemy at times and led by the snout usually. Humans have a tendency to gather and pack into groups, often without any real tangible reason than the sense of belonging.

Mix that with a tablespoon of social media, a drop or two of suggestive subliminal media and what to do you get? A pack. Blindly following.

I’m going to call it the Two Step Effect.

It’s almost like a dance whereby the two packs run to a drum beat alongside each other. Yet they dance different beats to the same drum.

Whose drum is right and whose is wrong?

I know what you did last night

I know what you did last night

Last night I had a truly lovely night with friends. My bottle of gin and laughter and just doing something I haven’t done in ages.

This year has been such a challenge and I’ve missed human contact and touch incredibly. Just laughing and enjoying time.

Of course it was very socially distanced before you ask as we sat in a hot tub with our drinks to hand.

Because it was in a virtual world we could do this.

Today I wake up late with a sleepy smile on my face.

Never underestimate the power of friends and making things happen in a virtual world.

Next the Christmas meal plan for all my friends before Christmas. I best start baking!!!

Then this dress!!!

Ready for the town

Ready for the town

The fact that it’s two weeks to Christmas hasn’t escaped me.

The fact that I have absolutely no plans at all, certainly hasn’t escaped me.

I’m actually in a quandary about this years festive season and that basically there’s no Christmas meal with my friends from work in the run up to Christmas or my friends outside of work.

There’s also the possibility that if we stay in Tier 3 will we be allowed to mix to any extent? Boris, leaves me wondering often. For me at the moment I have absolutely no social bubble. That has I’ll be honest been the case basically since lockdown started in April this year. Apart from one of two catch ups.

I haven’t seen my children since just before the U.K. 1 month lockdown started. Approx just over 6 weeks and I’ve seen a friend to say goodbye before she moved across the country two weeks ago. Oh hang on, my daughter for 1 hour as we had a socially distanced walk around the lakes one lunchtime.

I don’t have a social bubble because the rules are in a house share situation that there can only be one bubble for the shared housemates. As I’ve mentioned before the other person here has been a bubble already.

So to do the right thing means I don’t because at the end of the day, if anything did happen to me that’s one thing. The thought I could potentially inadvertently pass anything to my grandson who has a heart condition, would break my heart. Let alone my children.

It is a strong thing this parent instinct how you would literally sacrifice anything for the protection of your children. I never understood it before I became a mother.

The truth is I happily forfeit parties and indulging my own so that things can get better. However, in pixel planet (my fond name for Second Life) I can get dressed up, hop in a car and go out for the day.

I am just giving you a calendar update because im quite helpful like that. Also to let you know that this is todays advent calendar goodie from Entice. So pop on over as freebies are a dream arent they.

I do love a freebie and Christmas goodies are the best. Sadly the only place we get them is in our virtual lives because reality is not so kind.

If we are honest, reality puts the prices up then lowers them back down again and we are deluded into the false premise we nabbed ourselves a bargain.

Enjoy the virtual free gifts and make sure in reality you check their “discounts”.

Strumming my pain with his

Strumming my pain with his

Ok I have no idea on the title and why. But that song Killing me softly has been in my head all day. Again no idea why.

The fact that I don’t recall hearing it today is one fact, a pretty good fact. Also that I don’t own a radio either.

No idea how it popped into my head or why because it isn’t a favourite song by any means.

But, it does actually kind of reflect the photo because I have a guitar? Strumming? So there is that. It will do as my explanation anyhow.

I’d love to say that the reason for the image was inspired by my strumming of my guitar earlier and feeling the music flowing through my veins, caught in a creative moment.

But that wouldn’t be true. I just fancied the pose.

There I said it. I fancied the pose and why not. Yet the fact that this song is featuring in my head leaves me wondering if I should go find a man to strum my pain with his finger?

Oh lord I’ll stop right there.

Those pesky plants

Those pesky plants

My plans today. Sorting out my potted plants. Nahhhh not really!!!

Maybe I’ve left it a bit late as we had ice ice baby and in reality they look a little icy dead now. Honestly I am the worst outdoor gardener even if they are only a couple of potted plants!

Inside. I’m the greenest thumb going. go figure.

Today my plans are living the Tier 3 lockdown dream. Imagining life as it used to be and stepping outside just to check I’m not dreaming.

Though let me get something off my chest! Tier 3!! We aren’t meant to cross counties/tiers. So what has my housemate been doing with her boy friend. Going into London to visit the Reach climbing centre. Oh and that place knows they’re out of county as all climbers are registered. So who do we blame? The businesses and the people, or both?

This is going on all the time at a lot of the local climbing places and jujitsu gyms. The shady openings after hours and some during the entire lockdown!

It leaves me and others exasperated as we do what we need to do and basically we are wasting our time.

So that explains the look on my face in my photo and me trying to do the plants.

All details below. Have a good Saturday and be responsible.

Day 4

Day 4

I just realised we are already day 4 in December.

I’m sat here in reality chomping my way at lunch and the holidays are literally around the corner. I’m not prepared or ready. To be honest I’m in a hang on, did we even have a summer? The enjoyment part I mean.

I know I took leave but did I actually get to do anything with it? Nope. That’s because we have been in lockdowns most of this year.

Online Christmas shopping it is!!!

Anyhow aside from that if you are looking for pretend world calendar freebies or cheapies. Entice has a calendar gift each day for the season. Today is day 4 of which I am wearing.
