Alicia Chenaux & Sophia Harlow suggested a fun blogger challenge/activity earlier this week - the Time Travelers' Blogger Challenge! We are to select a time period we would like to travel to, take a picture representing that time and select a song or video to go with it. Easy peasy! Except that sometimes my brain makes wild leaps of association as you shall see below.
I'll set the stage for you....
Think back to a time long, long ago....back before gambling was outlawed in SL, before Homesteads, Gorean role play and talking genitalia. Let your mind travel to a time before Lucky Chairs, before Voice Chat and before Torley Linden was even a wee watermelon seed.
We have traveled back to prehistoric times! Jerremy and I are Cave Avatars!
When I pondered prehistoric times and an associated song, my brain, dulled from hours of trying to decide if I am going to do the Bunny Hop Grid-wide Hunt or not, instantly thought of Haircut 100's Love Plus One. You see, I like to think that back then when we were busy evolving and keeping the species going, we bopped around like this all of the time:
I'll admit that the song choice is a bit of a stretch, since they are actually pretending to be cannibals in this video and the song has nothing to do with anything prehistoric. However, it was definitely made before flexi-prim hair. In any case, this video makes me think of cavemen and I adore the upbeat, fun tune and lyrics.
Someday when mankind evolves a bit more - into brains in jars who can operate computer mice - we'll think back fondly on this current era and all the fun we had with Second Life.
And then we'll bop around in our jars.
