Life as a song

For my previous post I was listening to a lot of country songs to get in the mood. It was hard because I am not a huge country fan. I mean it was hard finding the right kind of country song. I came across a lot that actually made me cry, not cool. I did find a common themes among them, that being love, fights and heartbreak. Here is a little bit of love...
Country Love

Luckily I had a very handsome cowboy to volunteer to be in the pictures with me. Of course like a country song we had a little tiff too.
Country Heartbreak

We had a fight and of course that lead to the heartbreak.
Country Sadness

We did of course kiss and make up, but you don't get to see those pictures.

Playing for my sheep

Sheepy audience

I take an audience where ever I can get one. Today it just happens to be the sheep that are umm blessed with my musical talents. I don't think they like it so much though, the seem to be heading as far away from me as they can get. It's possible I should have taken some lessons or at least watched a YouTube video before subjecting the sheep to my less than skillful playing. It may be for the best if I just put down the guitar and enjoy the peace and quiet, minus the animal noises of course.
Country girl

This is much better, for everyone within hearing range.

My happily ever after

The theme for the current round of Fit for a Princess is Happily Ever After, and who doesn't want their own happily ever after? My happily ever after doesn't need a castle or a crown, just my own prince.

Metal and Spikes

I will admit heavy metal has never really been a musical genre that I have willingly listened to. I say willingly because there have been times that I have listened to it to make others happy, namely my kid, go figure. That being said it didn't stop me from enjoying the offerings in the Metal section at Rhapsody.
Metal and Spikes

I may look all sugar and spice most of the time but that doesn't stop me from having a weakness for spikes.

Music of the City

Song of the City

I was trying to think of something brilliant to write about the sounds of the city being music to my ears, but words are failing me this morning. Instead I will just leave you with these pictures and the knowledge that they are from the Rhapsody event.
It calls to me

In My Room

Singing along

Alone in my rooms I can belt out a tune like no one else. And I can dance like a pro, at least in my head. Reality is far different than that fantasy. In my fantasy there is no awkward moments when I forget the lyrics.
Ummm what were the lyrics?

And in my fantasy being caught singing out loud is a good thing and not one to cause utter embarrassment. Perhaps it would be safer if I were to just listen to the music instead.
It's safer to listen

Playing at Punk

Snarling

I am not a very punk girl, but I can play one in SL. I know very little of punk music if we are being completely honest, but that is the category at Rhapsody that my tied shirt and poses come from.
Just like high school

The pose set is named Joan, and if the names of the individual poses are any clue then I can saying guess they were named after Joan Jett songs. I know these songs very well because when I was little my sister used to play her record all the time. I used to sing along to "I love Rock n Roll" all the time. I was little and it was cute, or at least that is what I am told.
