Just Kids..

Yesterday I finished a beautiful book by Patti Smith called “Just Kids”. The last 30 pages made me cry, a lot. It’s one of those torn feelings of knowing what’s coming, but yet you are still overwhelmed by it’s presence.

It’s an autobiography of her youth, mainly surround her marriage to Robert Mapplethorpe. It wasn’t actually a ‘marriage’ – but more an artist and his muse. Their bond was exceptional, and devoted until the end.

For those who do not know, Mapplethorpe was a photographer in the late 70’s and 1980’s. He was mostly known for his controversial S&M and gay photography. However, he also photographed flowers and portraits. He was irreverent, unconventional, and fixated on being true to an artist lifestyle.

Patti and Robert were very much in love and found the beauty within each other. They critiqued, promoted and supported each other’s need for art in their daily lives. I can’t help but recommend this book to anyone who is willing to listen to me.

Valentines REVISITED

So I would like to introduce a new segment here at coffeesmoke. My long time friend Betty Page has joined our style smoking room! *applause* She brings us a great new insight to coffeesmoke – grunge, goth, neko, futuristic, fetish, alternative, bad ass style. Yeah, something like that.

So no MORE do you have to live under the dictatorship any pretentious blogs out there! You can now bask in an unbiased opinion of an avid lover of all things alternative SL related!

Betty on second life love…

So what’s interesting is that since the last article, I’ve gone and partnered with someone (something I swore I’d never do). I’m a total cougar now (RaWr!!!) because he’s a younger man. But I do not plan to go through the whole wedding experience.

But it’s been my experience that the ones who go through the SL wedding end up shortly married, quickly divorced and messy emotionally. “Love” in its SL forms is so quickly changing and often fleeting.

That said about Love and Weddings in SL, if I do have an SL wedding, I’ve decided it will be the slight mockery it’s intended to be, in my oinion. Allow me to describe.

It will be performed in front of a broke-ass trailer. With lawnchairs for seating. The preacher will be a drunk uncle. The entire ceremony will be performed with established gestures only. For example – the vows for him might be the gesture and sound effect that says, “Bitch, I love you!” Then refreshments will be a big tub of SLWeiser (or whatever cheap ass beer I have in inventory) and dancing around a bonfire not far from the trailer. The first dance song will be “Chicken Fried” by Zac Brown Band. And we will live sexfully ever after.

He’s quite a sugar loaded candy cane.

The Black Market = Stuff In My Mouth

I only realized after I created the graphics that something was hanging out of my mouth in both of them. Odd. I didn’t feel particularly ORAL yesterday. *shrugs*

I heard about The Black Market on Shelby Wrangler’s flickr which PEEKED my curiosity! So I traveled off in search of hidden treasures and stories of great adventure. I sure did find it! The Black Market spotlights a handful of stores each week of December. This week, the ever beguiling TWOSOME is amongst those featured. In the photo credits, I listed the prices of the items I am wearing. They are insanely cheap, well made and tons of fun!


Another surprise was the reappearance of ADEN hair. I had thought they went out of business, but you can find them at The Black Market! For 50 linden, you get the five major colors! I couldn’t resist the Amy Winehouse hair. Nothing says the holidays to me like a tattooed drunk woman raving around in an English accent. God Bless Us, Everyone!

Special thanks to Bubbles Komachi

I spied the body suit on Miss Komachi’s FLICKR and commented. She hit me up with directions to the main store of mijn.t. These body suits are the shit. Do go out and grab one! They are only 100 linden and being the lover all things ORANGE – I couldn’t resist.

However, Bubbles has an amazing ass.  I, on the other hand, do not.  *fails* I decided in a fit of neurosis that would wear my League booty shorts UNDER the body suit. I feel like the kid in 3rd grade that everyone thinks is a weirdo. I’m down with that.
