You all know about what happened in Manchester last night. Another suicide bomber managing to end innocent young lives and to cause pain and suffering to multitudes of others.
Of course, we call it terrorism and the other side would no doubt call it a war. But they are wrong. A war is like when you fall out with someone who has been your friend. You both know why it’s happening, you know what you’re fighting about. Theoretically, it can be solved.
Terrorism is like an internet troll; there is no dialogue, there is no real ‘why’. And therefore, there is no solution which would be acceptable to either party.
According to the LA Times (and other news sources) Trump says this “wicked ideology must be obliterated. And I mean completely obliterated.”
Obliteration of an ideology can’t be achieved without obliteration of the people holding it and as ‘they’ (because I’m presuming this is ISIS related, aren’t you?) only seem to want obliteration of Western ideology and those who hold it, we’re at a very scary and potentially very deadly impasse.
My heart is with all those affected by the events in Manchester last night, my thoughts are with the families of those who died and people who were injured. I confess, I’m afraid of what the future might bring, but I hope to anybody’s god that obliteration is not a part of it.

Because Kess Crystal set a challenge on her blog to other bloggers to produce a post where some items were new and some were definitely not new, and this post achieves that, I have marked all the new items with an * above. Those not marked are not new releases at all, but old faves that I have brought back for a lovely airing. I do it often, as Kess mentions in her blog and get a real surge of happiness if I wear something old and someone admires it. Dig deep in that inventory and see what treasures you can find.
The Addams Evan Givenchi Shirt is an adorable new release at the Addams Mainstore. It comes in the main mesh body sizes and with a stripe HUD and a plain HUD. I should clarify that the plain HUD is also a teensy bit striped, but not big bold stripes, so go try some demos and choose which you like best.
More from May’s Catwa Powder Pack, of course, but no video blog on those things today. Here’s the deets for you –
Essences Dawn skin comes in Pale 01 and 02, Medium 01 and 02 (this is Pale 02) and Dark 01 and 02. It comes with a choice of eyebrow colours or no brow (shown).
DeeTaleZ have provided 8 choices of eye colour (to apply to the Catwa eyes) and 6 lovely sets of lashes.
#adored’s sheen eyeshadows offer a choice of 24 colours which apply to the brow area as well as the eyelid, this means you should wear a skin with eyebrows already on it, or you’re gonna have issues. I found that dropping the slider on the Catwa HUD a little on this to make it slightly less opaque looked better on my choice of skin for this post. If you do, don’t forget to do it for the eyebrow and eyemake up layers equally, or you’ll look a bit freaky deeky.
You can go pick up this very Powder Pack for 3000l$ right now, or you can pre-order the June pack for a mere 1500l$. Just click the link given in the credits above to access the Powder Pack website and get all the juicy details.
The Besom Baby Jammer hair is a part of the BESOMxREIGN Derby Set Gacha which I blogged earlier – here – but I didn’t get to show this hair then because I only have one head to work with.
Here’s some more pics, including a ‘well lit, no shit’ shot…
And finally, here is a jigging for the rigging, it’s a pretty song, so we can chill and contempate the world too…
