Eternal

Yes, I’m a hopeless romantic and the title of my post could easily refer to eternal love… It sort of does. Another thing that has become eternal, or rather, timeless, since its creation in 1873; denim clothing. When tailor Jacob Davis and businessman Levi Strauss teamed up to create a pair of sturdy work pants for gold miners, they made them from a cotton twill fabric that Levi Strauss was importing; denim. In 1905 they made the first denim shirt to companion the work trousers.

I’m wearing the Ranger Denim Shirt by Lapointe Bastchild accompanying their Havoc Jeans. The unbuttoned denim shirt has a variety of HUD controlled options; choice of denim colour, with or without patches, choice of t-shirt colour and print as well as a no t-shirt option. Find the Ranger Denim Shirt in the Lapointe Bastchild mainstore.

Squad Goals

The puppies and I have been on a mission to find the perfect Christmas tree and we did so in the most beautiful setting. The girls are excited that we’re bringing a whole tree inside the house.. but no chewing on it! This is also why I can’t put my presents under the tree. They are very good puppers, but they just can’t resist opening presents!

Pawrenting

I’m a puppy pappa to two Dachshund girls and when I’m not on Second Life they keep me occupied with walks, grooming, playing, feeding, cuddling… They follow me everywhere and are the most loyal and loving companions you can get. If you didn’t already know, being a puppy parent is a big responsibility and takes a lot of work and time. Don’t ever consider getting a dog for the cuteness value. The little, yes adorable, puppers are going to depend on you being there for them every day for many years. I can go on and on about this, but I’ll stop here and move on to the items I’m supposed to talk about!

The Auster Patio Set & Fireplace by CHEZ MOI is a recent release and is now available at the mainstore and marketplace. Adult or PG version, both the sofa and the chair are full of bento animations. The ottoman contains 10 animations and the fireplace has both single and couples (PG and Adult) animations! Texture changer HUD included for both the patio set and the fireplace.

Both the Hans Sweater by Allure Couture and the Havoc Jeans by L&B I’ve blogged before but it doesn’t hurt to repeat a good thing! Both items are available at their respective mainstores.

Depeche Mode – Stripped

I bet my parents shook their heads when Sander, 12 years old, blasted Depeche Mode on his boom box so everyone could hear. Even though I learned English at an early age, I didn’t really understand the meaning of their songs but they sounded awesome. Stripped was one of my favourites. This picture is not just inspired by the song, mind you, as a kid I used to grab my walkman, hike up the hills to find a nice view and I’d sit and enjoy the scenic surroundings with music in my ears. I know people do that all the time now, but believe me, it was freaking awesome to be able to do that in the early 80’s.

When I saw the I ❤️️ 80’s Music print on the Chris Classic Shirt by Treized Designs I knew this is what I wanted to do with it. There are 19 other prints to choose from though! Or you can just buy the fatpack with all 20. It’s available right now at The Executives event!

Beer O’Clock

We have several projects going on in Second Life right now; blogging, The Bar and recently Mahogany started singing which has been the most amazing experience to be a part of. She’s got such a beautiful voice, believe me, I’m not just saying that because I’m her boyfriend. Come to one of her shows and be amazed! When we’re not working, one of the things we like to do is go dancing while we listen to other live performances. Live music is one of the greatest gifts Second Life has to offer and we’re avid supporters.

Showcasing the No. 59 ISTC Planberger beer in sixpack. A beautifully texured metal case with 6 types of beer to choose from! You get sixpacks to rez or to wear (hold) and they all dispense temp attached animated beer bottles that won’t interfere with your AO and you can wear them with static poses too. In the box you’ll also find beer bottles for perma wear. When you have a beer in hand, say ‘cheers’ in chat and you will toast the others.
