FASHION: Tres Beau: CHARLES. Kimmera Madison did an amazing job creating this fantastic outfit. The entire look is elegant and sophisticated especially for that world traveler man in style. The details of the coat is rich with the use of unique patterns and textures. The added fedora and gloves complete the look that simply says: WOW. Thank you Tres Beau for this awesome outfit. I had the pleasure of modeling it for F.A.M.E. agency on their Grand Opening Show which was a blast.

LYRICS:

Leaving on the Midnight Train to Georgia

LA proved too much for the man
(Too much for a man, he couldn’t make it)
So he’s leaving a life he’s come to know
(He said he’s going)
He said he’s going back to find
(Going back to find)
What’s left of his world
The world he left behind not so long ago

He’s leaving (Leaving)
On that midnight train to Georgia
(Leaving on a midnight train)
Said he’s going back (Going back to find)
To find a simpler place and time
(Whenever he takes that ride, guess who’s gonna be right by his side)
I’ll be with him (I know you will)
On that midnight train to Georgia
(Leaving on a midnight train to Georgia, woo woo)
I’d rather live in his world, (Live in his world)
Than live without him in mine
(World, world, is his and hers alone)

He kept dreaming (Dreaming)
That some day he’d be a star
(A superstar, but he didn’t get far)
But he sure found out the hard way,
That dreams don’t always come true
(Dreams don’t always gome true, uh huh, no, uh huh)
So he pawned all his hopes
(Ooh, ooh, ooh ooh)
And even sold his old car
(Woo, woo, woo)
For a one way ticket back to the life he once knew
Oh yes he did, he said he would

He’s leaving
(Leaving)
On that midnight train to Georgia
(Leaving on a midnight train)
Yeah, said he’s going back to find
(Going back to find)
A simpler place and time
(Whenever he takes that ride, guess who’s gonna be right by his side)
I’m gonna be with him
(I know you will)
On that midnight train to Georgia
(Leaving on a midnight train to Georgia, woo woo)
I’d rather live in his world,
(Live in his world)
Than live without him in mine
(World, world, it’s his and hers alone)

He’s leaving
(Leaving)
On the midnight train to Georgia
(Leaving on the midnight train to)
Said he’s going back to find
(Going back to find)
A simpler place and time
(Whenever he takes that ride, guess who’s gonna be right by his side)
I’ve got to be with him
(I know you will)
On that midnight train to Georgia
(Leaving on a midnight train to Georgia, woo woo)
I’d rather live in his world,
(Live in his world)
Than live without him in mine
(World, world it’s his, his and hers alone)

My love, gonna board the midnight train to Georgia (x3)

My world, his world, our world, mine and his alone (x2)

I’ve got to go (x5)

My world, his world, my man, his girl.

*RicoRacer Flux “The Journey”: I am on a modeling break at this time to refresh and energize. The past few months have been crazy with lots of fashion shows, editorials and contests. I love modeling but sometimes one must take a little break for a breathe of fresh ideas and perspective. Also have a lot of real life affairs to settle. My next projects will be completing our first task for Mister Virtual World which is a photo of our National Costume with head shot and a brief biography about ourselves. I cannot wait to show off my National Costume especially designed by the super talented designer: Enzo Champagne from CHAMPAGNE! Sparkling Fashion. He did an amazing job and I am so honored and grateful for his sponsorship.

Also considering applying for the Modavia Casting, “Paris in the Springtime”. We shall see. =) Ciao.

FANTASY FAIRE: Don’t Miss this 9 Sim Event.

From Monday April 19th to Sunday 25th 2010, thousands of Second Life residents and creators are coming together to support the American Cancer Society’s vision of a world without cancer.  Friends Fighting Cancer (FFC) have transformed nine sims of Second Life into a fantasy wonderland:  the Fantasy Faire 2010 to benefit Relay for Life of Second Life (RFL of SL).

The Fantasy Faire 2010 is the largest gathering of fantasy designers, enthusiasts, roleplayers and performers in the virtual world.  A week of commerce, special events, live music concerts, exclusive items auctions, RFL ribbon hunts and fundraising to benefit Relay for Life and the fight against cancer.  Avatars, clothing, furnishings, gadgets, goodies and exclusive items are available from top SL Fantasy Creators including Fantavatar and Moonstruck, Evie’s Closet, Fallen Gods, Mer Betta, Sassy Kitty, and many, many more!
This nine sim event is bringing together such fantasy genres as Fairy, Elven, Magic, Mermaid, Goth, Demon, Vamp, Neko, Tiny, Sci-Fi and more!  FFC’s goal in 2010 is to raise $15,000 USD for RFL of SL. The Fantasy Faire 2010 will also offer visitors an opportunity  to celebrate the survivors of cancer, remember and honor loved ones lost, and to fight back with the American Cancer Society.

As with all events this size, there will be lag. We have done our best to keep it as low as we can but we’ll also need your help. Be considerate of your fellow shoppers…keep prims and bling in your pocket…turn off your AOs and other scripted HUDs… You will find the going easier for yourself. Low prim clothes are available at each teleport point so that you can show your support for The Relay for Life and help everything run smoother PLUS our secret Fairy Godmother will be dropping FABULOUS prizes on people with really low Avatar Render Cost and Scripts for doing such a great job at keeping the lag down!
