THERE IS NO TRUTH

There is no truth. There is only perception.

Gustave Flaubert

Who decides what’s considered art? Does art have to be moody to be art? Are photos in color not photography? Do you have to use post edit software to be called a photographer? I can’t be bothered with elitist jerks creating Flickr groups to sit there and decide what is “ONLY THE BEST” or “ELITE ARTISTS”, “EXEPTIONAL PHOTOGRAPHY”… Yeah, no thank you I’m good where I am I’m too old for that sh** and I will leave any group that start doing this. I’m a blogger and I take damned good blog pictures. If you only want to collect pictures that YOU like on Flickr, create a private group, don’t invite me to it, or go ahead and create yourself a Gallery. Thanks, Sander.

Trooped Up

We all know by now that Madagascar is the only habitat for all the wild Lemurs in the world but did you know that they have a female-dominant society? Lemur females show signs of dominance in the way they mark their territories within the group. Another fact is that female lemurs snatch food away from the males and also kick them out of sleeping spots. For more facts about Lemurs, check out the Lemur Conservation Network’s blog.

TLC Animals are participating in this round of Cosmopolitan with their Ringtailed Lemurs, Animesh and Mesh variants. They come in 2 texture versions, including habitat (not shown in my picture)

Konoha knows just what a landscaper in Second Life needs and this time it’s weeds! Out at the current round of Cosmopolitan event. Consists of 10 kinds of weeds and over 16 dual-combination textures. 26 mesh pieces.

Keep Out!

Keeping people out of your life who contribute nothing positive is called intelligence.

I’ve started a big clean out of the property at home; old junk, double sets of this and that, broken things and things not in use anymore. Everything needs to be tossed out. I’ve always found it easy to get rid of things and when you’ve tossed something out it stays out and you’re free to renew your home or wardrobe or whatever. People are definitely harder to get rid of though, for most of us, even when they don’t bring anything positive to our lives. But, and this is true in all things; if there’s no gain in keeping, there’s no loss in weeding out. I’m tossing “everything” out! ūüėú

The awesome Cyber Repair Backdrop is a new backdrop from TROPIX and it’s available at the September round of Cyber Fair by ACCESS. Active Light and No Light versions available and it comes with extra parts which you can decorate however you like.

The most recent release for us guys from FashionNatic are the Colt Shoes which are out at MAN CAVE for a couple more days. They are compatible with Jake (shown on me), Gianni and Legacy male mesh bodies and come with a color/texture HUD with a multitude of customization options so you can make these shoes your own.

The Borealis Slingshot Trike car from 777 Motors was released earlier this summer I just haven’t blogged it before. It is so cool, a Marvel super hero would drive this! You can find it in the 777 Motors mainstore!

Nice and Toasty

As temperatures are steadily dropping towards the inevitable freezing point here in northern Norway, the Roughwood Set by InsurreKtion immediately brought me to somewhere with a warmer climate in Second Life. Somewhere where I can sit outside on the porch on a fall evening and enjoy a drink, without getting cold.

A shot of Jaeger, or two, dispensed by the new Jaegerlehrling Shot Machine from No. 59 is guaranteed to warm me up wherever I am though. And also, look how cool it looks!! Skål!

Oh The Leaves Are Turning Gold

I don’t know how it is everywhere else but way up north where I live, the birch trees are now yellowing and soon the rowan trees will follow, turning yellow and red. Fall colors are amazing.

The L’Auzon is the most recent release from La Petite Vie and it’s another addition to their line of Provencal style buildings. The L’Auzon is available at the early September round of Cosmopolitan. Rez it with or without the pergola. The vines are tintable, so instead of green I made them orange for this scene. Color HUD included for Exterior/Interior Walls & Shutters/Door. Full version is 43 Li and 10 x 8,5 m.

The Little Branch always include a season changer menu in their trees, which you bring up by clicking the tree. In this picture I’m showcasing their American Chestnut Tree v2 which is available right now at TMD. The¬†American chestnut¬†(Castanea dentata) is a large¬†deciduous¬†tree of the¬†beech family¬†native to eastern North America. The American chestnut was one of the most important forest trees throughout its range and was considered the finest chestnut tree in the world. The species was devastated by¬†chestnut blight, a fungal disease that came from¬†Chinese chestnut trees¬†introduced into North America from¬†East Asia. It is estimated that between 3 and 4 billion American chestnut trees were destroyed in the first half of the 20th century by chestnut blight after the blight’s initial discovery in North America in 1904. Read more on Wikipedia.
