Ages ago

It was my birthday in October and as usual I was thoroughly spoilt by Player. Amongst the glittery jewels and pretty clothes and shoes – was this piano. Now I have quite a few pianos in Second Life – in fact I could prolly open a piano store ! I’m always looking at them, and most importantly the MUSIC they play. To me there’s not much sense in a piano – no matter how beautiful or low prim – if the music isn’t PIANO music? As a pianist myself (I admit a really bad one!) the instrument isn’t beautiful unless the sounds are. So many pianos in second life don’t actually play piano music – yes really!

Sooo when I opened this beauty up, cracked my knuckles and sat to play, I felt pretty tearful when the sounds came out. Piano pieces, loud and clear and so many to choose from. The playing animation is perfect also. This Baby Grand is a delight but wait – there’s more to it than that !  A total of 10Li for the piano and play book BTW.

Here’s the full details:

Play up to 23 lovesongs via the songbook.

Sit together, play and sing together (microphone included), kiss, or let yourself go in unbridled passion.

The ADULT pose set piano has:

3 Solo poses
7 Duet poses
9 Cuddly poses
46 Adult poses
1 Prop
TOTAL 127 Animations

The piano colour changes to 3 wood colours (white, black, beige) and 5 seat fabric colours, to fit your home.

Quiet time

cello saskia

I don’t get an awful lot of quiet time in SL, I’m usually dashing about snapping photos or , of course, flitting from one event to another . Today was a real treat I had a spare hour or so and managed to do what makes my heart smile – sit and play my cello. I’ve had this particular cello for some years , its by Sakisa – it was very inexpensive but the sound quality of the music is astonishingly clear and beautiful. Sakisa has moved to a much smaller location these days, and sadly no longer sells the sheet music I used to buy for my piano, BUT the cello and a few other assorted instruments are there for sale. I picked up a really cool harmonica for just 30L, animated and plays a tune ! My music stand was a great find, just 2 prims by EP & Co, at only $30L you’d be forgiven for thinking its pretty cheaply made – not so ! It’s totally beautiful and unique. Take a look around the sim while you’re there – its amazing, lots of things to do and a fantastic are to take some happy snaps.

Latex Love.

urbdress

I have to confess I’ve had this dress in my invent for absolutely ages, thankfully Milu Laval never ever demands or expects something to be blogged and then yesterday when I put on my new Mina Hair a light bulb went off and I knew that this punky, quiffed hair and this Latex dress would make a stunning look.

The dress looks almost as though it would squeak and squelch as you walk.  Although I went for the shocking red there are other colours including ones with a lace overlay. Milu Laval’s shop AtaMe is for the Latex lovers but don’t let that put you off if latex isn’t your thing.  She has not only a mix of mesh and non mesh but also styles.

But check out the Quiff! Mina Nakamura has come up with yet another “Oh Wow” moment.  I just didn’t expect not only this style, appropriately named Sid,but also another punkytype of hair.  Both of them are definitely uni sexed but to make sure of the perfect fit Mina has included a male and female version in the pack.   I’ve chosen one of her more juicy coloured hairs because it fits so well with this dress  but of course as with all Mina Hair you have a choice from Bimbo Blondie to Brainy Brownie and all the rainbow shades in between.

Only available at the moment at the Rhapsody event, a celebration of all music genre from punk to electronic and even OMG country!  This is such a big event and so many of the top shops and designers have shops here but don’t panic because when you land you get sent a brilliant plan which makes it so much easier and of course Mina’s in clearly market in the Punk section.  So “rock on” over and check out the clothes, hairs, poses and decor items of your fav music era.

Low on prims?

Wherever I have called Home in second life, I have always had a piano. Even when prims were in short supply and circa 2007 pianos were really a luxury item, pricey & primmy , double whammy. Nowadays they are a lot cheaper and lower prim…today I found the ultimate, a WEARABLE  piano & stool. Not only that but it’s also FREE …mmhmm…the best of all worlds. You get a choice of white,yellow,red (shown above) and a grey…there is a HUD to wear for the piano that lets you choose your playing animation and also a choice of nine classical pieces. I have to say the sound tone is just perfect, clear and plays beautifully…just wear the stool and then add/wear the piano, et voila! Attach the HUD and your good to go…thanks Satoko ! There are a few luckyboards in the store also for guitars and a drum set – give it a whirl…when you land you’re looking for a small pink pig on the floor
