Echo Beach, Far Away in Time (yes, two posts in a few hours!)

From nine till five I have to spend my time at work
The job is very boring, I’m an office clerk
The only thing that helps pass the time away
Is knowing I’ll be back at Echo Beach some day

So Paradoxical is the shop of someone I’ve known inworld for years, Paradox Messmer (whose blog is over here).  He’d done a promo image recently for a new top he came up with (he’s only done just a few items, and he’s already texturing things this well!), and I was saving up my pennies, so he threw me a copy of the top. It’s named Solaris: it made me want to go wander on the beach in the afternoon.

I really love the way he’s gotten such a solid knit texture baked into the thing- and it really hangs nicely, too. Good stuff, and hey, at L$150, isn’t it worth a shot?
You can find his marketplace shop here (and yes, there are demos!).

Additionally, this is my 201st post on this blog: I am surprised the anniversary snuck up on me so thoroughly!

Le boulevard des rêves brisés – Argrace, Mohna Lisa

Hey gang.  I’ve been putting off buying this hair for a while- I demo’ed it, I loved it on me, I just… couldn’t come up with justification for spending the lindens.  I finally did, and was going to do something entirely different with a pose for it but my pose wouldn’t quite work with the set I’d chosen.  So instead, you get these.

The 100 Block – In The Colored Costume Of Your Choice

You’re having tea with Graham Greene
In the colored costume of your choice
And you’ll be thought in high esteem
If you’re seen in between
Stiffly holding umbrellas
Catching the fellows making the toast
To the civil servant Carruthers
Making the others worser than most

-John Cale, ‘Graham Greene’

Another post from the 100 Block; here’s a few more of the exclusive items that the various participating vendors are offering.
