still as a stone, a living stone

Genre is starting up again! If you’re not familiar with the event, it features a new genre every month, which helps celebrate diversity and creativity within the SL community.

This month’s event is “The Big Band Era,” and finds me writing this from a jazz club listening to to the Big Band stream for inspiration. If you’re not familiar with this type of music,  Big Band music hearkens back to the 1930s and ’40s, and is also known as the swing area. Dance bands and dance halls prevailed, along with glamour like a 1930s movie star.

The Annex’s champagne silk gown trimmed with black lace  reminds me so much of a gown Veronica Lake would wear. She was famous for her hair. When most starlets were wearing their hair in rolls and fancy up-do’s, Veronica’s locks flowed seductively past her shoulders, with her eyes peeking behind a lock. She is my favorite actress from that era.

There’s lots more to come here from the Genre event, so stay tuned. In the meantime, Genre opens on 4/15.
