My friend shared a cover of a Daft Punk song on Facebook yesterday. It was actually one of my favourite songs by them Instant Crush. That sent me on a bit of a Daft Punk day and when I listened to Something About Us I became very nostalgic for a time many years ago on SL before Kess was even ‘conceived’. Kess wasn’t my original avatar and in fact my original avatar just had her 10th Rez Day in SL just over a week ago. The song was played quite regularly at a club I used to go to ‘back in the day’ and it brought back lots of happy and carefree memories.
The lyrics for Something About Us are so simple, as many of the best songs are. In fact, it’s just two very similar verses and one round of the chorus. They’re simple, understated and extremely powerful especially when mixed with the smooth, electronic instrumental of the song. For a song that stirred such strong memories in me there is a lot about these lyrics that resonates with me at the moment too. After 10 years this song has brought me full circle.
About the Stuff:
There really is so much at Tannenbaum to choose from and today I’m featuring the beautiful necklace from Empyrean Forge called Levity. I really love this necklace, which also has matching earrings available. It’s no secret that I work for EF, but this item completely epitomises exactly why I work for them…the detail and quality of mesh work is second to none. The textures in terms of quality and level of detail are exquisite…the choice of textures is phenomenal. There are so many options available in terms of how to wear this and how to match it that it truly is one of the must have items of this years Tannenbaum.
My outfit is a three part set from Milk Motion also available at Tannenbaum. It comes specifically fitted for Maitreya Lara and with a range of colours for the skirt in denims and leathers as well as a numerous sweater textures and a colour change hud for the harness bra. In addition the sweater comes with a tucked in or loose option.
My hair is another gorgeous release from Wasabi Pills and is available at thenew round of Uber which opened a couple of days ago. It comes in two sizes, one of them to fit slightly larger boobs but as you can see from the picture, I’m wearing the regularfit and it drops perfectly over the chest.
