Sleeved

I’m a huge Netflix fan. I’ve recently become hooked on Altered Carbon and the concept of our souls/consciousness versus our outer body “sleeves”. There are moments of brilliance in the series and moments to make you step back and think…one scene where the male protagonist realises that his ally is actually his enemy is one that makes me shudder. How easy to fool other people without realising who you truly are. How easy to live ‘forever’ if you desired. How the concepts of money, wealth, status and hierarchy are magnified over and over if you could live forever.

Rewind

The Rewind event has just started and I always find it good fun to pop over and see what people are now calling “Retro”. This round is the early 2000’s and all I keep thinking is “heck, I was around my physical peak then!” Young, perky….nothing had moved southwards and I didn’t appreciate it at the time. In fact, I remember owning a PC like this one for a good few years. It was a beast of a machine (woolly mammoth) but it got me through university in one piece 😉

The computer set is from Madpea and is actually a gacha game. Collect the pieces to discover the outcome of a story and a hidden achievement. That’s all I know myself, so I’ll be settling down in my comfies (love bold colours, so pink was a natural choice) and finding out what happens. It’s a bit like a binge watch session of your fave tv programme. Have to keep going until it’s all done!

Wrapped in a Bow

Wynn was not a happy scorceress today. Not only had she been called *cute* by a friend, but her magical orbs kept shooting fluffy kittens at her enemies rather than linghtning strikes! Wynn scowled and adjusted the bow on her outfit. Christmas may be on the horizon but she was in no mood to celebrate.

Cast Your Eyes Forward

Look forward, to the horizon. That’s where your future lies. Embrace it. Don’t let your fears be the bars on a self imposed cage that holds you back.

Today I’m stepping out of my comfort zone a little and I have a person and a group to thank for this. I recently participated in the Blogger Vlogger Network (BVN) group’s Secret Santa and I was drawn Jarla Capalini. “So, how do I blog about a blogger as a gift?” you ask. Well, it’s a very good question and one I’ve thought about this week carefully. You start by profile perving, flickr perving and blog perving. Generally, you perv and I learned a few things:

  1. Jarla takes amazing photographs. Her use of lighting and shadows just makes me think “Wow!” every time I see them.
  2. Jarla has a couple of quotes in her profile that really resonate with me. The window bars in this picture are inspired by one of them.
  3. Jarla loves motorbikes!! This makes my heart sing because I have a trike in real life and I admit, I drooled at her rl profile picture (sorry Jarla, still profile perving).

So, what does a little blogger like me do with this information? Well, we take risks. We play with lighting and projectors. We edit windlights, play with shadows and then a moment of brilliance emerges. Obviously, this moment of brilliant includes a motorbike and an excuse to wear leather. So Jarla, this is my gift to you and it comes with thanks, for inspiring me to develop my skills further.
