If You’re A Shiny New Penny, I’m A Hundred Dollar Bill

Attention attention, ’cause this ain’t a stunt
The judge is a racist, the jury’s corrupt
The shelves are all empty but the seats are all filled


We had a bit of fun with the shot for this post. It could have been serious like a law firm normally would be, it could have been a bunch of different ideas. But we chose to make it more interesting and it gave me the opportunity to not only involve Aria, but to drag my brother Brennan into as well. He recently mentioned it’d been a while since we had done a shot together so I figured why the hell not this one. He made a very convincing receptionist and didn’t protest a thing. Well done good sir. Well done. Oh and our rates are ridiculous so don’t go getting divorced or anything, you might come out of it with nothing. Just saying.

The idea came about after watching some more episodes of Suits the other night. I’ve been watching it off and on now and thought about doing something related earlier on. I just never got around to it. Then I watched some more and finally got something together to somewhat relate. We never did figure out who did what to cause the disagreement, maybe I lost or stole, maybe she lost or stole, hell maybe Brennan stole everything. Nobody knows! The backdrop did most of the work, BH9’s Beverly Hills Inn fit most of what I was looking to create. I added a bit to make it a little more like the law firm in my head. That would be the elevator, panel and the lettering. I think it came together quite well.

Both Brennan and myself are wearing Deadwool’s Hart suit because well it’s just that good. I went with the standard version while he chose the flannel one. I think both are extremely well done and fit this scene great. Aria, being a name partner in our so called firm had the option of pretty much wearing anything she wanted, within reason, of course. I think the Trench dress from ISON worked right into the rest of the shot. We needed a few small things to add to the idea so Nardcotix’s  Finlay backpack and a quickly made Burrow Coffee Co cup that is being lofted at my face. Does it ever land? Again nobody knows.

Lastly and less evidently at least in this shot is that I did take the plunge and picked up the new Legacy body. Yes I know the jury is split on Legacy and no that wasn’t a pun intended thing. I’ve read a lot of the reviews, thoughts, whatever you want to call them. I get it, I do. Bad experiences with TMP in the past and where things went with that. I understand it. I too purchased the TMP body when it came out. I remember how it went and where it ended up. I -was- against doing it this time until I tried it out. The first thing I noticed (and this is for the male body) was the detail and effort put into the hands. That stood out immediately. I have three other mesh bodies of various types and it would be an understatement to say the hands, arms, shoulder blades, feet, and basically all of it are the most realistic when compared to my other options.

Now I don’t know where it will all end up. Could it go the way of TMP the first time? Sure it could. Anything is possible. What I do think is stupid though is the whiney debate over the cost. If this was back when TMP came out sure maybe 5k was a huge deal then. But now we pay that for fucking heads. Heads that let’s be honest have less detail than this body does. So please don’t try to play that “OMG it’s so expensive card” because really in 2019 it doesn’t work. I’m not saying to not have your own opinions, everyone is welcome to, but using the price as your banner against it is kind of stupid.

Thus far I’ve been satisfied with what I’ve seen from it. It seems easy to work with and the debate on appliers and kits that was raging months ago seems less apparent now because I see kits out there, I see clothing being made, and hopefully we’ll see more of that. I know I’ve seen a lot of people say they won’t buy it because of no Omega support. What I can say to that is maybe if enough of us mention this to the creators of the body that they’ll understand how important that is to so many of us. If it’s evident that allowing and adding that would put it over the top for a majority then it would seem foolish to not do that.

I’ll leave it with this, Legacy/TMP/The Shops, whichever way you prefer it, I myself already like what I see but I do agree Omega would be a killer decision to allow. I know if you were to ask me if this body had Omega there’s a good chance you might put the rest out to pasture or push them to step up their game on various things. Just a thought. I think if you polled the SL population on it you’d see a fair amount of us going yea if it had Omega I’d buy it. I know Omega is interested in doing it if you are. Look into it, I think you’ll be surprised.

The tension, the tension, it’s urgent, it’s real
The cameras are rolling, the envelope’s sealed
Attention attention, by the way, did I mention?
