Dancing through the 1920s


I attended the second dancing through the decades event hosted by Meli and with DJ Stormy. The venue was created by Aria. It was an interesting affair, with many dressed up as flapper girls.

I danced with my ward, the very lovely Elicia (who seems to be a font of dirty word euphemisms, some of which made me blush,  tsk tsk tsk *wonders whether washing mouth with soap is a valid punishment for GIS*)

Polynesian Dreams


I seem to have a fetish for all things Polynesian recently, after watching Moana.

It's not only the languages that fascinate me (just hearing something like Reo Tahiti seems to remind me of tiny islands in the Pacific), but I've been listening to some Polynesian music, and I want to share some of them with you here.

Te Vaka is a group behind some of the songs in Moana. It was founded by Opetaia Foa'i and is composed of eleven musicians and dancers from Tokelau, Tuvalu, Samoa, Cook Islands, Fiji and New Zealand.

This is their first single. Not to be crass and juvenile, but the babe with the radically sexy hips is Olivia Foa’i, the daughter of the founder.


If you'd like something more tranquil, Maisey Rika sings in Maori (Te Reo), and some of her songs are quite ethereally beautiful.

Ronald and Orchid's 4th Anniversary


I managed to attend part of Ronald and Orchid's 4th Anniversary celebration.

It was a quiet but meaningful event, with about 15 people witnessing the renewal of their vows.

It's always very nice to see relationships flourish here at Austin, and the vows they gave to one another definitely made some tear up.

Best wishes to the two!

Ronald Schmid: I come to you today first, to offer my gratitude to you. For you, Orchid, have been my Pet and partner and fulfilled the very promises you made that day Four Years ago.  You have always made your self to be beautiful for me, each day,  and to have always obeyed me. You are a woman who  is who you said you were, and your words 4 years ago only articulated who you have been for me, even through all the difficult months of your personal loss, and illness.

Ronald Schmid: And I come to you today, again, to renew my desire and promise to be your Master, to continue to be your safe harbor, and share  your life. I  renew my commitment to you, and my desire to be with you, enjoy you, use you even, and help  you grow, as  you have and do make me grow too.

Ronald Schmid reaches down to secure Orchid's collar once more

Ronald Schmid: Today I lock your collar, but free you on to fly, and though your leash is longer, and I seem so far away, I always am beside you, and will alway have you stay,  back with me in the shelter of my one particular harbor, to grown again still older and know our love will stay.

Orchid (orchid.zsun): thank you my Master

Orchid (orchid.zsun) touches my collar around my neck with joy and pride

Orchid (orchid.zsun): I come here at our 4 year celebration  with my mind on the past present and the future.  How we met here on this sim when i was just an applicant.  Both with other people ... but there was a spark and also a friendship and also a girl being trained and taught by a Master.

Orchid (orchid.zsun): Slowly as we both had our struggles and changes  we were thru all of it still bonding and getting to know eachother  and can not deny the magic between us.

Orchid (orchid.zsun): Way before there was a thought it would be possible to be yours my desire to kneel to serve to give myself to you was there and it bloomed and blossomed from that first meeting  to ... every day since till now and going forward.

Orchid (orchid.zsun): Every year that we come to this anniversary  you always ask me each year and cause me to think about  .... if i want to continue  .. if i want to keep going ... if we should still do this together

Orchid (orchid.zsun): and i would stop and think ...... are you kidding !!!   you can't get rid of me that easy  .. i have never had any thoughts then wanting to be with you

Orchid (orchid.zsun): yes there has been some struggles with the time that we see eachother and that is out of my control  ... but it never stopped me from wanting to be yours in any way

Orchid (orchid.zsun): My desire for you has only grown my craving for you has only intensified  ..

Orchid (orchid.zsun): thank you for owning me , thank you for taking care of this toy

Orchid (orchid.zsun): i have changed, but my vows and commitment hasn't
i recommit myself to you

Ronald Schmid: Stand Orchid!

Ronald Schmid: Thank  you  my Pet.. I love you very much.. and thank  you  all  of you for honoring us both this day.

Happy Song


I love how happy and fun this song is, which just came out two days ago...you can't help but tap along with the chorus, and I kept replaying it and "singing" along...made me laugh and smile while I was working tonight...their voices ain't much, but it's a good song done enthusiastically, and the girl is seriously cute.

One Year


It's been one year in RL, and a lifetime in SL.

Funny how time works.

When I gave you my collar I made a promise, and I intend to keep that promise. Such is life.

Janjiku padamu

Ku akan s'lalu ingatmu
meski tahun-tahun berlalu
seperti daun-daun yang jatuh.

I still remember you my boo, my southern girl, even as the year passed like a fallen leaf.

From exploding penises to Disney...Oh my!


I watched Moana recently and really liked the depiction of Polynesians in the movie.

Compared to others, Disney has been relatively sensitive to cultural appropriation and other such things, and for the movie they even consulted many scholars of the Oceanic people. Disney also likes to create different versions of its songs in different languages, some of which are endangered.

I found a really good video showing one of the main songs in Moana being sang in the Tahitian language (Reo Ma'ohi), and I loved it. This is how Moana would actually sound like (well, if she was real). Also note that the term "Moana" actually means "Sea" or "Ocean" in that language, so you'll see that word in the subtitles too..

The Polynesian languages are all part of the Austronesian language family group, which also contains my native tongues, so I noticed some common words. (e.g. the word for "eye" is "mata"). The sounds are different though, because of the glottal stops and lack of phonemes in Polynesian languages. Their language does not contain a lot of phonemes...it only has five vowels and nine consonants!

Anyways, enjoy.

ps. I also like this other song from Moana in Tahitian...

Exploding penises


I was minding my own business, dancing at Billy and Sage's 3rd Anniversary Wing dance, when the always-sexy Kota girl molested me and caused some rather messy eruptions.

Oh well...just another day of my penis exploding on me.

Thanks to Saras (Sarasvatii Resident) for taking the pic at just the right moment! It's magic!


Into the abyss (of marriage!)

Entering into new relationships is scary at times, more so if that long-term relationship will test your faithfulness and loyalty. And yet people do it all the time...they commit to something because they know (or hope!) that the rewards are more than the demands that will be placed on them. Or, maybe it's just because they don't know what horrors lurk in the prison of matrimony ;-)

But the magic moment is when you make the final decision to go ahead, come what may. Bravo to the brave ones, the ones who can dream of something better.

I kinda tear up when I view this very new music video from Malaysia...it shows the progression of a relationship from childhood to romance...to marriage and old age...very romantic pics and the melody is really good...enjoy!

The chorus in Bahasa and English:

Sedia ku terima dirimu seadanya
I am ready to receive you

Setia menjaga mu untuk selamanya
To faithfully watch over you always

Sedia ku diduga ku berani kerana
I am ready for my courage to be tested because...

Telah ku menang kamu
I've won you.

Oh blow dryer...


Oh blow dryer...what can I say...it's already been one year, but:

Dan bila kau hadir bagai satu misteri
(When you suddenly appeared like a mystery)

Ternyata diriku bagai sudah di jampi
(I was already spellbound)

Dan bila kau hambakan hatiku kembali
(And when you enslaved my heart in return)

Ternyata hanya kau harus aku cintai
(It was only you that I could love)

Aisyah - Projector Band (music)


I just found this song, which was released this summer in Malaysia...it is already at 20+ million views, which is pretty darn good for a country with only 30 million or so people...

It's a very funny (and good...i find myself tapping my feet everytime i hear it) song about a little kid who promises his undying love to a little girl. One funny thing to me is that if an adult guy had said this to a girl, he would probably be called obsessive...but it's kinda cute thing to see in kids.

For example, the chorus is:

Aisyah
Jangan ragu-ragu dengan cinta ini
Jangan kau ragu-ragu ku jadi kekasihmu
Percaya padaku
Ku akan jadi yang terbaik untuk cintamu

Which says:

Aisyah
Don't doubt this love
Don't you doubt that I will be your beloved,
Believe me
That I will be the best one for your love

To be honest, you can pretty much figure out the gist of the thing from the vid.

Ward Elicia



I took in Elicia  (Lorelaei Resident) as a ward.

She will be my third ward after Meli and Dakota.

I hope I do well by her.

My pick of her:

Elicia is a smart, sexy, funny girl with a seriously cute Swedish accent who I remember managed to insult me about a dozen times during our first voice chat...including referring to me as her "gimp" (ahem *rubs his hands in glee now that the tables have turned*).

Elicia is currently a GIS at Austin. If you have any complaints about her, I'm sorry to say I won't be able to redden her cute little rump until she gets to O-girl *smh at the unfairness of it all*

Such is life.

But one thing I know is that I'm sure there will be times when I just have to tell her...

Baby, ya sudahlah...let it be...as the song below says:

Apapun yang terjadi (whatever happens)
Ku kan selalu ada untukmu (i'll always be there for you)
Janganlah kau bersedih (don't be sad)
Cause everything's gonna be okay

Because that's what Wardens do...well, at least until we croak or something ;-)

Awesome Inkognito (music)


Love this song with original lyrics using the melody of Despacito!

The band (from Singapore) is so funny and really enthusiastic as they sing in Bahasa Melayu.

And they're just students, not professionals I think.

You can get English subtitles by using the CC button below the vid..

Love it!

The women responded...also students...

A love letter for Starla (music)


I really like the lyrics and melody of this low key Indo song...

There is an English translation if you hit the CC button...it's more or less accurate ;-)

Last Dance at Alanis Gallery



I attended the last dance for Alanis Gallery.

There were more than 68 people who were there, and the lag was so bad most of the avis rezzed only partially for me, which meant I got to see lots of naked torsos (yay!) and invisible avatars.

But it was great finale for one of the great sims in SL, and I'm sure almost all were quite emotional about the whole thing, as many have had some great times in the sim owned by Michiel and Sylvia. I myself was once a frequent visitor to the sim, and all 3 of the girls I have been with were at one time or the other alanis angels.

I wish the two good fortune on any future endeavors they may have, and I thank them from the bottom of my heart for all the good memories xxx

Some of the attendees:

Alanis Gallery Closing!


Before I spent most of my time in Austin, Alanis Gallery had been one of the few D/s-BDSM sims I regularly visited, and the vast majority of the artwork I have bought over the years has been from their offerings. Linda too spent some time at that sim, and both of us know the co-owner Michiel.

Alanis also has one of the more unusual examples of objectification in SL, which I highlighted in a blog post.

I'm sad that the place is closing, but I am happy that it has lasted for so long and created so many memories for its visitors and regulars.

Good luck to Michiel and Sylvia in their new endeavors, and thanks for all the memories x
Dear Friends, Alanis Patrons and Angels 
With much heartache, but also a great deal of pride, I am sad to announce that Alanis Gallery Sensual Images - which has sought to bring the best of RL erotic art into SL since 2008 - will be closing on July 29th 2017 after a glorious decade of exhibitions. 
For some time, my RL circumstances have prevented my making more than fleeting visits to SL and it looks as if this will be the case for the foreseeable future. In addition, my SL partner, Michiel Seetan, will have less time for SL in the near future because of a change in his RL circumstances.
I would like to thank Laz and his team for latterly hosting Alanis in the wonderful sim of Xaara. Long may it prosper! I urge all Members of Alanis Group who are not already Members of Xaara Community Group to join that Group NOW. Copy and paste < secondlife:///app/group/ f67ddcaa-f402-63ac-d603- bdbf14cb4a1b/about > into Local Chat to create a live link to the Group.
FAREWELL BALL
I will rebuild the old Alanis Pavilion inside the Gallery grounds for a Farewell Ball on 24th July at 1:00pm SLT to thank all our supporters, customers and many friends. I hope to see you all there to chat over old times and look to the future.  
With much love,
Sylvia Fitzpatrick, owner of Alanis Gallery Sensual Images 


Afro Hair Dancing


I was sorting through some old textures in my inventory when I found two pics from 2014.

They show Linda, me, Kota, and Reni (Serenity Streussel) dancing in the cafe wearing afros...like, really huge afros!

I remember that we had been talking in the cafe to the newly-arrived Kota and Reni when Linda (as she is wont to do) suddenly whipped out and gave us the wigs and we started dancing....


Afterwards, the girls tried to push my body out of the cafe and into some water while I was afk! Which just goes to show that when the Dom is not looking, the subs will be bratty and unruly and in need of some spanking.

When I asked Kota about it later, she who has some brains answered that they were  "< 50% innocent", which confused my poor brain so much at the time that I forgot to get angry smh

Giving up the Linda Lou store land

All empty now
Linda gave up her inworld store about 3 weeks ago on June 13 (she still has an MP store though that brings her tons of money here), but I held onto the land until a couple days back.

We have a saying (peribahasa) that goes:

Sikit-sikit, lama-lama jadi bukit

Loosely translated, it says that doing things...even little things, over time will sooner or later create mountains.

Sometimes it feels like I am doing the opposite of that...instead of building things, little by little I am losing connections to the life we once had.

First I reluctantly gave up our land and home by the Blake Seas, and now the store that we shared for so long is also gone.

Exactly a year ago we had our one and only spat where we separated from each other for one week. I still have the emails and IMs that we sent each during that week, and it still makes my heart ache to see how miserable we were apart.

I want her to be happy, so I wish she would forget me completely and have a great life...but I know that I will never ever forget her, nor the time we spent together.

Takkan sesal, takkan lupa.
