Places to go In Second Life: Nightwish, a Club for Lovers

Nightwish Romance Ballroom is a beautiful place to take your sweetheart for a quiet evening of love talk in each others arms. Plenty of romantic dance balls, couches and cuddle balls, all under a midnight sky.

Best for me is the fact that this club is dedicated to one of my all time fav music groups, Nightwish!

Check it out, and if you see me dancing there with a friend, come over and say hello to us!

Song for a far away friend: Norah Jones "Turn Me On"

Like a flower
Waiting to bloom
Like a light bulb
In a darkened room
Im just sittin' here
Waiting for you to come on home
And turn me on . . . .

Quote of the Day: K. J. Parker

"Love is a confidence trick, that's all. Nature's way of suckering a mammal with a brain and a long vulnerable gestation period into reproducing. Humans can think so ordinary animal-grade maternal instinct wouldn't be enough to make human women go through all that, not if they stopped and thought about what's involved. So you have love. It's a substitute for rational thought; look at it that way, it's the complete antithesis of what being human is all about. Humans can make choices, it's what makes them unique. Love takes all your choices away, and there you suddenly are. Worse still love inevitably leads to the worst pain of all, when you lose the people you love."
--Death talking to Miel Ducas, from K.J. Parker's Evil for Evil

Sci-fi author K. J. Parker's steampunk engineer trilogy, Devices and Desires, Evil for Evil, and The Escapement is a fabulous study in human nature... and shoes, and hunting, and weapons of mass destruction, and war. I could go on, but really, you should just go read them.

Wonderland: Virtual Adultery and Cyberspace Love (Part 1)




So tell me, gang, how many of you think cybersex is cheating?

Chanson du Jour: Pat Benatar's "Love Is A Battlefield"

Do I stand in your way or am I the best thing you've had?...

Believe me, believe me, I can't tell you why, But Im trapped by your love, and I'm chained to your side...

No promises no demands...

Love is a battlefield.

A song for a strange Friday: Never Too Late

This world will never be what I expected...

Even if I say it will be all right...

Maybe we'll turn it around,
"cause its not too late...

It's never too late.
