Tentacular powers

new cene “I also insist that we need a name for the dynamic ongoing sym-chthonic forces and powers of which people are a part, within which ongoingness is at stake. Maybe, but only maybe, and only with intense commitment and collaborative work and play with other terrans, flourishing for rich multispecies assemblages that include people will be possible. I am calling all this the Chthulucene—past, present, and to come. These real and possible timespaces are not named after SF writer H.P. Lovecraft’s misogynist racial-nightmare monster Cthulhu (note spelling difference), but rather after the diverse earth-wide tentacular powers and forces and collected things with names like Naga, Gaia, Tangaroa (burst from water-full Papa), Terra, Haniyasu-hime, Spider Woman, Pachamama, Oya, Gorgo, Raven, A’akuluujjusi, and many many more. ‘My’ Chthulucene, even burdened with its problematic Greek-ish tendrils, entangles myriad temporalities and spatialities and myriad intra-active entities-in-assemblages—including the more-than-human, other-than-human, inhuman, and human-as-humus. Even rendered in an American English-language text like this one, Naga, Gaia, Tangaroa, Medusa, Spider Woman, and all their kin are some of the many thousand names proper to a vein of SF that Lovecraft could not have imagined or embraced—namely, the webs of speculative fabulation, speculative feminism, science fiction, and scientific fact.”

Suction me

after the lovin I gather that people are squeamish about tentacle porn. I am entranced by it, but only in its most common form. I do not enjoy seeing real people draped with real octopi. (Octopi can’t consent.) Nor do I enjoy seeing real people poked and prodded by fake wire tentacles covered in felt. But I love manga and anime images of tentacle sex: witness the impossibly sinuous appendages demonstrate an astounding amorous versatility as they go to work on every last mound and hole in a woman’s body. There’s definitely a similarity between tentacle bonds and rope bondage: both tentacles and rope beautifully accentuate body parts like breasts, mimicking the curves by wrapping around them. Octopus porn sets me dreaming of floating immobilization as well as stimulation of my orifices. The images speak to my desire to be overwhelmed and erm pampered. While tentacle sex is usually a form of rape in hentai, it has not always been depicted as violent and unpleasurable in Japanese culture. Visit Thee Monkee Armada Word for an article that explains the positively sensual side of the classic sea-creature-on-woman picture, the 1820 print by Hokusai called The Dream of the Fisherman’s Wife.

Take me for a walk

Skin me I am (not really) happy to report that my rare-gachatosis is in remission. This may be less a health issue than a metaphysical phenomenon—a punishment for my rationalist choice to shop yardsales instead of trusting in the gacha gods. I was too impatient to wait for resale of Umazuma Metaluna’s new Haruko skins for The Skinnery. I could not not play after I got a look at the refreshingly odd makeups hiding among the nice normals. Number 3 works beautifully (or uglily) with the new group gift hair from little bones. The HUD for the latter offers two eccentric ombres that make liberal use of the most terrifying of colours, yellow. (The fashion world succeeded in domesticating orange. Yellow is not going to roll over to be declawed.) In other news this week, Pure Poison creator Shaleene Kenin sent her subo and VIP groups awesome pairs of hardware-n-handcuff-themed bracelets.

Shiny shiny

snowballxmas I surprised myself this year. I fell hard for beautiful sims filled with wintry trees, passed-out polar bears, falling flakes and lovely lights. The tiny balls of brightness have inspired me to shoot grey-skied pics that capture the dazzle of the season. I even rounded up inventive Xmas trees from an Ionic (rare!) gacha and from Alouette. The latter is a bookcase in the shape of a tree, and it is an inexpensive prize in the Four Walls Hunt. Thank you, creators, for giving me so much holiday cheer.
sldrcl I felt a little disturbed by the militariness of Portia’s outfit. And briefly considered calling her a nuts cracker. (Get it?) Then I realized that a snowball to the face would be a season-worthy rebuke to the military-industrial complex. Portia’s cap is a gift from the inventive creator at Contraption. It awaits you at the RMK sim fair. (Beware: Beetlebones gacha are there.) I love the shiny textures and sexy little outfits that R2A/D/E brings to Collabor88. This outfit features almost imperceptible tantalizingly slim slits running alongside the stripes that accentuate the breasts.

An unusual anti-atomic-bomb song from Haysi Fantayzee gave me today’s title

I can’t do credits today because I am on a parental PC. Festive nails from The Plastik and a pretty skin from Al Vulo can be purchased at the current round of TDR Fusion. The first pose is by Blah and the snowball is from Izzie’s. Portia’s Gira earrings were Zibska’s gift for the Jewelry and Accessories Fair. Argh. I shot these pics before it ended but I couldn’t get online this weekend.

The offerings for the new round of Euphoria’s Limited Bazaar are so fantastic that I wanted to call this post “Fu*k yes.” The theme is menswear. Portia’s avant-gardey suit from E-Clipse and her colour-blocked coat from Diram are only two of the stylish, discounted buys. Remember that Limited Bazaar features limited quantities. If you want these, go as soon as you finish reading every precious word of this post.

Lilo Glom of JesyLiLo is doing two fabulous skins for winter events. This is Gül Buz, which will be available at the Frost Fair as of December 12th. When I slipped on this skin, I was pleasantly surprised to see that Gül Buz is a sophisticated and polished beauty. On the other hand, Portia’s hair, Valerie 2, is wonderfully disheveled, courtesy MissAllSunday Lemon of Wasabi Pills. Valerie 2 is the sequel to a neatly coiffed version, and both are available at the new Collabor88.

Zima, the other lovely new skin from JesyLiLo, is available until December 15 at The Winter Fair. For Zima, Ms. Glom has designed glossy lipsticks in a range of colours that cover bold and pale looks. Portia’s mesh eyes are new from Clemmm. The haunting periwinkle shade is speckled with white lights.

I saw a coat like this in a real-life ad and hoped against hope that I’d be able to buy it in SL. Thank you, Diram! Take note of Portia’s multi-colour boots, which are a Paperbag item at the Singer Icon Fair, until December 13th. The pack also provides a version with silver toes, and the boots are available in other colours.

Fawning it

What’s a fawn to wear? Pink Fuel’s Project Themeory fawn skins set me dreaming. How, besides adding ears and a tail, could I turn my models into proper fawns? Should I dress them in monochrome brown? Head over to Scribble to buy some more Spotty Bum outfits? Let the girls go buck naked save for a tail and a pair of ears? As I shopped for fawn parts, it occurred to me that fawns don’t eat meat, and this was the inspiration I needed. If fashionable fawns were going to wear clothes, those clothes would have to be made out of vegetables and fruits.

Anorak-the-fawn wears Hearts of Romaine, Pig’s vegetarian contribution to the Koreshan Bake Sale, which ends this weekend. (Pig also made carnivore clothing, which I couldn’t stomach. I am not a brave enough blogger.) For deer, this item is as sexy as it gets: the entire outfit, not just the undies, is edible.

Portia-the-fawn wears Pig’s Helendale Bodysuit, which is made out of delicious Bumbleberry. So much more exotic than all the cherries and strawberries littering the grid! (If I had my way, everything would be made out of rhubarb pie.)

On a chilly day, Portia-the-fawn changes into fri.day’s freebie Ballet Sweater in Berry. Her flower nom is a Sanu gift from the Spring Bazaar. I have to thank Sanura for the frequent gifts, because without them, my models would smoke like chimneys.
