LYRICS:

BOYS of Summer

Nobody on the road
Nobody on the beach
I feel it in the air
The summer’s out of reach
Empty lake, empty streets
The sun goes down alone
I’m drivin’ by your house
Though I know you’re not at home

But I can see you-
Your brown skin shinin’ in the sun
You got your hair combed back and your sunglasses on, baby
And I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone

I never will forget those nights
I wonder if it was a dream
Remember how you made me crazy?
Remember how I made you scream
Now I don’t understand what happened to our love
But babe, I’m gonna get you back
I’m gonna show you what I’m made of

I can see you-
Your brown skin shinin’ in the sun
I see you walkin’ real slow and you’re smilin’ at everyone
I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone

Out on the road today, I saw a DEADHEAD sticker on a Cadillac
A little voice Inside my head said, “Don’t look back. You can never look back.”
I thought I knew what love was
What did I know?
Those days are gone forever
I should just let them go but-

I can see you-
Your brown skin shinin’ in the sun
You got that top pulled down and that radio on, baby
And I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone

I can see you-
Your brown skin shinin’ in the sun
You got that hair slicked back and those Wayfarers on, baby
I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone.

NEIL DIAMOND – September Morn

Stay for just a while
Stay, and let me look at you
Its been so long, I hardly knew you
Standing in the door
Stay with me a while
I only want to talk to you
Weve traveled halfway round the world
To find ourselves again

September morn
We danced until the night became a brand new day
Two lovers playing scenes from some romantic play
September morning still can make me feel this way

Look at what youve done
Why, youve become a grown-up girl
I still can hear you cryin
In the corner of your room
And look how far weve come
So far from where we used to be
But not so far that weve forgotten
How it was before

September morn
Do you remember how we danced that night away
Two lovers playing scenes from some romantic play
September morning still can make me feel this way

FASHION & POETRY: “Hope” by Emily Dickinson Starring RicoRacer Flux

MODEL & PHOTOGRAPHER: RicoRacer FLux

FASHION: I absolutely LOVE this gold sexy shorts from Champagne! Sparkling fashions. The texture just shines and they come in many colors. The”package” looks realistic and the bow string adds a nice touch. I think it looks great wearing it to the beach or to the clubs. It has versatility. This is my very favorite boots from REDGRAVE. There are so many amazing little details; I really love the buckles. The texture just screamed expensive Italian leather. Jewelry is from GABRIELS, Takuya Jinn is just amazing with jewelry and clothing. Hair is from MADesigns which completes the look of total masculinity. =p

POEM: HOPE

POET: Emily Dickenson

“HOPE”

“Hope” is the thing with feathers—
That perches in the soul—
And sings the tune without the words—
And never stops—at all—

And sweetest—in the Gale—is heard—
And sore must be the storm—
That could abash the little Bird
That kept so many warm—

I’ve heard it in the chillest land—
And on the strangest Sea—
Yet, never, in Extremity,
It asked a crumb—of Me.

Poem by Emily Dickinson

RicoRacer Flux’s “The Journey”: I’m really excited this week because I made it as a Finalist for the MAD Agency Model Search.  There are so many talented models on the list competing and I am nervous. I need to bring out my inner styling guru again and hopefully gain a spot in the agency. If not, I am always grateful for the opportunity and will try again next time. I hope they will understand my styling. I tend to go for flashy unique couture even for a male model. LOL. Think Alexander McQueen. This should be fun. =)  CONGRATULATIONS to all the finalist and Good Luck.

FASHION & MUSIC: Seal’s “Kiss From A Rose” Starring RicoRacer Flux

MODEL: RicoRacer Flux

PHOTOGRAPHER: Julie Hastings

FASHION: This wonderful white suit is from Lapointe & Bastchild. I really love the crisp white pureness of the suit in contrasts to the amazing dark vest and the red tie. The texture is exquisite especially how smooth and cool it appears. The little details on the suit adds class, from the buttons of the jacket to the belt and jacket tail. The ROSE boutonnière puts a touch of ROMANCE that would melt your date’s heart. I had the honor of modelling this suit for AGATA Agency’s “East Meets West Wedding Show Collection”. Thank You AGATA for the opportunity.

Kiss From A Rose LYRICS:

There used to be a graying tower alone on the sea.
You became the light on the dark side of me.
Love remained a drug that’s the high and not the pill.

But did you know that when it snows,
My eyes become large and the light that you shine can be seen.

Baby,
I compare you to a kiss from a rose on the gray.
Ooh, The more I get of you,
Ooh…Stranger it feels, yeah.
And now that your rose is in bloom.
A light hits the gloom on the gray.

There is so much a man can tell you,
So much he can say.
You remain,
My power, my pleasure, my pain.
Baby,
To me you’re like a growing addiction that I can’t deny.. yeah.
Won’t you tell me is that healthy, baby?

But did you know that when it snows,
My eyes become large and the light that you shine can be seen.

Baby,
I compare you to a kiss from a rose on the gray.
Ooh, the more I get of you
the stranger it feels, yeah
Now that your rose is in bloom.
A light hits the gloom on the gray.

I’ve been kissed by a rose on the gray,
…I’ve been…………………..I’ve…
I’ve been kissed by a rose
…been kissed by a rose on the gray.
I’ve been kissed by a rose on the gray,
…I’ve been…………………..I’ve…
…And if I should fall, at all
I’ve been kissed by a rose
…been kissed by a rose on the gray.

There is so much a man can tell you,
So much he can say.
You remain…….
My power, my pleasure, my pain.
To me you’re like a growing addiction that I can’t deny, yeah.
Won’t you tell me is that healthy, baby.

But did you know that when it snows,
My eyes become large and the light that you shine can be seen.

Baby,
I compare you to a kiss from a rose on the gray.
Ooh, the more I get of you….
the stranger it feels, yeah
Now that your rose is in bloom,
A light hits the gloom on the gray.

Yes I compare you to a kiss from a rose on the gray
Ooh, the more I get of you
the stranger it feels, yeah.
And now that your rose is in bloom
A light hits the gloom on the gray

Now that your rose is in bloom,
A light hits the gloom on the gray.

RicoRacer Flux’s The Journey: A lot of people have wondered why I haven’t been on SL much. I took a little break from modelling and focusing more on my real life. Modelling can be really demanding especially on time, and there are some important things that I have neglected in RL and needed my attention. I always tell people to put Real Life FIRST. That’s why it is called Second Life. =) But of course, it doesn’t mean not to honor your SL commitments. BALANCE is the key. A model who takes long breaks sometimes worry about losing their spot/position in the industry, but I believe a break is necessary sometimes to energize and re-focus on your goals or else risk being burnt out. Also, It is important to learn to say NO and not overbooked on jobs. There was a time when I was doing 2 or more shows per week plus multiple print jobs, blogging and teaching on the side. I was absolutely going NUTS and modelling became stressful WORK instead of creative FUN. Anyway, I am starting modelling for magazines and store ads again and casting for shows. And NO, I have no intention at this time of being a partner in a modelling agency/academy, publishing or being an editor in a magazine or opening some kind of a styling business.Thank you for the consideration but I am not ready yet at this time for that type of commitment.  I just do what I do best for now…modelling. =)

FASHION & MUSIC: “Don’t Come Around Here No More” By Tom Petty Starring RicoRacer Flux

MODEL: RicoRacer Flux

PHOTOGRAPHER: Mikey Batriani

FASHION: A.C. Cheerno. I love this sexy complete outfit from Cheerno. It is very unique with a hint of couture. I’ve never seen an outfit like these anywhere. My favorite part is the feathered neck piece/collar. I also love how Cheerno uses the contrast between the black and white textures that make it POP! This outfit is high drama and surely gets you noticed wherever you go.

Hey, don’t come around here no more

I’ve given up on waiting any longer
I’ve given up, on this love getting stronger

I don’t feel you anymore
You darken my door
Whatever you’re looking for
Hey, don’t come around here no more

I’ve given up, I’ve given up
I’ve given up, you tangle my emotions
I’ve given up, honey please admit it’s over

Stop walking down my street
Who do you expect to meet?
Whatever you’re looking for
Hey, don’t come around here no more

FASHION: CHAMPAGNE! Sparkling Fashion’s The Prince of Egypt. The wonderful and super talented designer Enzo Champagne made this exquisite outfit for me as MR. Egypt in Mister Virtual World 2010. It is truly fantastic with highly detailed features such as the golden snakes that surrounds the Egyptian headpiece, shoulder guard and arm bands. The cape attached to the arm bands show dramatic flair and flows with movement. I had the honor of naming this glittering golden creation: THE PRINCE OF EGYPT.

LYRICS:

WHEN YOU BELIEVE
Many nights we prayed
With no proof anyone could hear
In our hearts a hopeful song
We barely understood

Now we are not afraid
Although we know there’s much to fear
We were moving mountains
Long before we knew we could
(Oh yes)

There can be miracles when you believe
Though hope is frail its hard to kill
Who knows what miracles you can achieve
When you believe, somehow you will
You will when you believe
(oh yeah)

In this time of fear
When prayers so often proved in vain
Hope seems like the summer birds
Too swiftly flown away

Yet now I’m standing here
My heart so full I can’t explain
Seeking faith and speaking words
I never thought I’d say

There can be miracles when you believe (when you believe)
Though hope is frail its hard to kill
Who knows what miracles you can achieve (you can acheive)
When you believe, somehow you will
You will when you believe

They don’t always happen when you ask
And its easy to give in to your fears (oh)
But when your blinded by your pain
Can’t see your way straight though the rain
Thoughts of a still, resilliant voice
Says hope is very near (yeah yeah)

There can be miracles (miracles) when you believe (lord when you believe oh ho)
Though hope is frail (though hope is frail) its hard to kill (it’s haaaard to to kill oh oh)
Who knows what miracles you can achieve
When you believe, somehow you will
somehow you will
You will when you believe

You will when you believe
Just believe (2 times)… (oh yeah)
You will when you believe

RicoRacer Flux “The Journey”: Today was the Mister Virtual World 2010 competition and I won Second Runner Up.  I am extremely happy and grateful that I made it to Top 3 especially since I’ve been terribly sick with the H1n1 flu all week and I suck at interviews. LOL Congratulations to all the finalists: what a bunch of truly talented and terrific men. It was truly an honor to compete and be a part of this wonderful experience. Congratulations to Mikey Batriani as the new MR Virtual World 2010.

LYRICS:

Somewhere Only We Know

I walked across an empty land
I knew the pathway like the back of my hand
I felt the earth beneath my feet
Sat by the river and it made me complete
Oh simple thing where have you gone?
I’m getting old and I need something to rely on
So tell me when you’re gonna let me in
I’m getting tired and I need somewhere to begin

I came across a fallen tree
I felt the branches of it looking at me?
Is this the place we used to love?
Is this the place that I’ve been dreaming of?

Oh simple thing where have you gone?
I’m getting old and I need something to rely on
So tell me when you’re gonna let me in
I’m getting tired and I need somewhere to begin

So if you have a minute why don’t we go
Talk about it somewhere only we know?
This could be the end of everything
So why don’t we go
Somewhere only we know?

Oh simple thing where have you gone?
I’m getting old and I need something to rely on
So tell me when you’re gonna let me in
I’m getting tired and I need somewhere to begin

So if you have a minute why don’t we go
Talk about it somewhere only we know?
This could be the end of everything
So why don’t we go
So why don’t we go

This could be the end of everything
So why don’t we go
Somewhere only we know?

This open shirt is masculine and sexy. It is perfect for a day in the country or a relaxing walk in the park. The dark blue skinny jeans is from Dream Box. I love the texture and the prim cuffs. For me, jeans must have prim cuffs. It simply adds quality. Hair is from MADesigns. This awesome lock is always in place even in a tornado. Even though I’m missing my ruby slippers, I love this look of relaxed sexiness. =)

Somewhere Over the Rainbow

Somewhere over the rainbow
Way up high,
There’s a land that I heard of
Once in a lullaby.
Somewhere over the rainbow
Skies are blue,
And the dreams that you dare to dream
Really do come true.

Someday I’ll wish upon a star
And wake up where the clouds are far
Behind me.
Where troubles melt like lemon drops
Away above the chimney tops
That’s where you’ll find me.

Somewhere over the rainbow
Bluebirds fly.
Birds fly over the rainbow.
Why then, oh why can’t I?

If happy little bluebirds fly
Beyond the rainbow
Why, oh why can’t I?

RicoRacer Flux’s “The Journey”: Today is my interview for Mister Virtual World and I feel sick. =( OMG, my allergies are acting up. I took Benadryl and it just made me so groggy and out of it. Anyway, I am so nervous about the Live Interview part because I consider it my weakest point. I can style superbly and model perfectly but I have trouble answering tough questions on demand in front of a live audience. Unfortunately, there’s nothing I can do to prepare for it. I absolutely have no idea what questions they are going to ask. I just have to be myself and answer the questions the best I can sincerely. I am very excited though to wear a special design made for me from Donna Flora for this interview. It is a tan business suit that is simply amazing. Wish me luck! The good news is that after this interview, the fun part starts. =) I cannot wait to see my formal wear and swimwear and style them. I am getting nervous because the competition is fast approaching and I hope I don’t have to compete naked ‘cuz my outfits are not done. LOL. But I have complete faith in the designers to deliver. They are the best.

FASHION: This mix and match outfit is put together with finesse to create a stunning ensemble reminiscent of Alexander Mcqueen Style. The highly detailed Tuxedo Jacket is from Lapointe & Bastchilde that comes with a collar, tie and cuff prims. The grooved vertical edges make a man look lean and sophisticated.
I paired this formal jacket with a fantastic Scottish kilt from Mushashi-do. The colors of the kilt are vibrant and it really flows when you move. It comes with a belt and sporran (pouch) that is highly detailed with rich textures if you look closely. The awesome footwear is from REDGRAVE. It is very unique and compliments the outfit well. A top hat and an umbrella from Cheerno completes the look that speaks volumes. A great combination of Masculinity and Elegance.

RicoRacer Flux “The Journey”: Second Life contests and castings. I’ve had my fair share of winning and losing SL contests and castings. It makes me sad that people take losing so seriously to the point of giving up Second Life. When it comes to competitions, I always follow this very wise saying…” Don’t take your success to your head nor your failures to your heart.” Win or Lose, Life goes on and I believe the experience will only make you stronger and better. No one can win all the competitions out there. You may have the perfect ‘everything’ but it might not be what they are looking for at that moment.

Let me tell you something. I once auditioned for a Top SL agency who was hiring models.  As far as I’m concerned, I had the perfect look with fantastic styling and fabulous poses picked out. I was so SURE that they would hire me but they didn’t. I was not what they are looking for at that moment. Guess What? Two weeks later, I got a message from that agency’s CEO that they would love to hire me and add me to their model roster if I am still interested. Anyway, the point is no matter how perfect you are, it might not be the right fit at that time. Contests are subjective and each judge’s view of what they are looking varies. So, if you don’t get it the first time, TRY again. Don’t be too hard on yourself. The sun will always shine. Wouldn’t the victory be much sweeter knowing how hard you worked at it? So, Get up, dust off and move on. The journey is not about the destination but the experiences along the way. Most important is to be happy of who you are and be content with what you have. Enjoy life. =)
