A Velvet Thought – Mistresses Musings: “Catch up”

So, I guess I really need to play “catch up” before I start seriously writing posts again.

I will start by giving everyone the results of the 15000ft freefall parachute jump that I did for charity. If you have not already seen it on my Youtube channel, here is the video footage taken by the awesome people over at Skydivebuzz.

Let me apologise for having such a screwed up face during the interview parts of the video. It was a combination of too much light and the holding back of a lot of emotions.

A huge thank you to all the groovy people out there who helped me raise a whopping £772 for HospisCare for cancer patients and a huge thank you to everyone over at Skydivebuzz for everything you did that day. You are all very awesome people.

You can read the original post here if you do not know the whole story of why I did this:

I will be posting more “catch up” updates soon. Watch this space.

Mongoose Publishing – Dark Eon Assassin.

A couple of years ago, I helped out a friend with a project by voice acting the lead character in a comic book style introduction story which was aimed at promoting his new game.

Recently I have been allowed access to use the promotional footage as an example of my voice acting work. I thought it might be a fun thing to add to my blog (as well as fill in a inordinately long time gap between posts as I have been too busy to sit down and write anything significant lately).

Comments are welcome. You can check out other gaming stuff by Mongoose Publishing at www.mongoosepublishing.com.

Enjoy.

A Velvet Thought – Mistresses Musings: Why I love Facebook.

Recently, I have been spending a little more time on Facebook. Mainly due to running my fan page and the Kabunza fan page, but I have often found myself taking 15 minutes or so a day to scroll through the feed once I have finished updating my pages and even making a personal post or two about random things.

But there have been many things I have noticed about Facebook that can be severely damaging. I would appreciate anyone proving my current theories wrong, but these are my views on some of them to date:

WARNING: If you currently partake in the social media site known as “Facebook” and are easily offended, I would suggest you stop reading now, disregard this blog post entirely and go back to your blissfully ignorant life.

As long as you do not take things too seriously, you should be fine continuing.

  • The little fruit and gem games (or some other theme, but they all essentially lead to the same outcome) where you have so many tries to achieve a high enough score to get to the next level and when you run out of time you get prompted to pay cash for more time or for bonuses to help you get through the level you are on. I hope people realise that these are designed so that there is always a next level, there is never anything you can win or gain from playing them and they are designed to do nothing but waste your time and possibly extract money from your pocket. If you want to play a game, at least play something decent that is designed to be a visually and mentally pleasing experience or something that has some sort of story or plot. Facebook games are designed for stupid people and sending me invites to play them is quite fruitless (and insulting), the only thing it will achieve is my banning the game from my feed as well as blocking the person from ever sending me any more invites.
  • “KFC chicken abomination!”, “Real UFO sighting!”, “Lose 3 stone in 3 hours!”. Two words: “Ratings” and “Money”. By sharing and propagating this drivel not only are you showing the world how insanely stupid you truly are, but you are also giving other stupid people more beliefs to propagate themselves. This is one of the ways that religion is produced. Blind belief caused by consensus which often causes more damage than good when a large number of people get involved. The only intelligent people involved in these newsreel items are the people who started them, because at the end of the day they are the ones who profit and get what they want from it all: more ratings or money from your pocket. How do you think the Bible started before media was invented?
  • Do you honestly think a photo of your face without any makeup will save a anyone from Cancer? The last thing any cancer patient needs is a bunch of fighting-fit women having a quick hospice-chic makeover. My father started his chemotherapy a few months ago and I am sure, as he is lying there being pumped full of radioactive drugs, that you are not helping matters any by suggesting, with a “full-tressed selfie”, that you somehow share his pain. Just donate directly to the research charity or do something that is actually productive and more appropriate to raise funding, you idiot.
  • “If you like my status or comment on my status you must post one of the following on your status! (insert list of stupid comments here) and change your profile photo to that of a shaved orangutan! If you do not, someone close to you will DIE HORRIBLY and you will live out your remaining years as a recluse in some far off, third-world, poverty-stricken country!” – I would just like to make it clear to everyone doing these; Have none of you figured it out yet that I am clicking the like button purely because I know what you are doing and want to frustrate the crap out of you by not actually continuing the comments? Muahahahaha!

There are numerous other things about Facebook that I could rant on about, but you get the idea.

So, Why do I love Facebook?

Because it is my constant reminder that I am not a sheep that follows the herd and that I exercise enough intelligence to see past the majority of what pollutes the minds and beliefs of this age.

And if you have read up to this point, be aware that I am not calling anyone stupid. I understand that some people have more time on their hands than sense. But doing multiples of the above, and spending hours a day doing it, is questionable to say the least.

What I am saying is that people only need to sit back, watch and wait for those who genuinely are stupid to prove it themselves.

Patience is a virtue.

Don’t be a sheep.

Now go and change your Facebook profile photo to that of a shaved orangutan.

 

Product review: Designer silks by Diana

Sometimes it is the little things that count the most. The smallest of gestures and details can make all the difference.

With this thought in mind, allow me to bring your attention to a little business run by a friend of mine: Designer silks by Diana.

Normally her items are intended as scarfs, however, these beautiful hand painted slivers of silk have multiple other uses. Including uses with BDSM connotations when you have a mind as kinky as mine.

Not only is her work divinely detailed, it is also custom created.

These 100% chiffon silk scarfs can be used as elegant blindfolds or gags. They can also be used for sensation play where you run the silk gently over skin or pull it taught around the throat and other sensitive areas.

One can easily get sensually creative in play with one of these at hand and they add a wonderfully personalised touch of refinement and class.

On an additional note: when not using it in your play space, wearing it as originally intended (as an item of clothing during your vanilla hours) offers up a wonderful little reminder of your kinky fun to your play partner (and perhaps encouraging more).

Time…

Lately I have been in deep thought and reflection of this past year. It has been a very difficult one to say the least and I am not going to bore anyone with it.

Truth be told, what I am writing here may seem like common sense when you think about it. But it really does not matter what you believe. In the end, you will read this and probably forget it as soon as something more interesting catches your eye. It is just how people are and how people always will be. With everything.

The only reason I am writing this is because I cannot sleep and I am trying to burn time.

Time…

Time… “Flies like an arrow”

Everything is finite. Every grain of sand that falls through the neck of the hourglass is a grain that can never be taken back. We all take time for granted until we run out of it.

It is the greatest gift. Nothing is more valuable. I loath people who waste it. But even worse are those people who waste the time of others.

It is forever changing. It fluctuates. It is relative. A single moment can last a lifetime or fly past at an unfathomable speed. I have seen that which has taken years to create destroyed in a second simply by a choice. But it can go both ways. A simple whim is also capable of developing things that can last and comfort for a prolonged period, even indefinitely.

Time… “Heals all wounds”

I do not agree. Serious damage never really heals. If you are consigned to a wheelchair for life, that is pretty much what it means.

Emotional wounds are the same. The mind, protecting its sanity, just covers them with scar tissue to lessen the pain. They are never truly gone. The best you can do is to try and avoid reopening them.

Time… “Is what we want the most and use the worst”

It grants experience and knowledge as it passes, but never wisdom.

And the older you get, the less you have.

I would recommend cherishing every moment as if it were your last and to not go wasting it, but nobody listens and everyone does. Including me. Every existence is full of regrets and “what if’s”. The aim is to limit those to a minimum and to try and fill life with as many precious moments and precious people as you can.

Time… “Flies like an arrow”
Time… “Does not heal all wounds”
Time… “Is what we want the most and use the worst”

Time… Ends.

If you blink you may miss it.
