SoftToyHobby can go fuck itself.
WHO SHARES LOTTERY INFO FOR A ONE-OFF
A gigantic FUCK YOU to the burrito place at the end of my street. I walked there this morning and ordered 2 burritos. I get my food and walk home. I bite into one of them and it's COMPLETELY WRONG. I ordered a breakfast burrito and there wasn't even eggs in it, all it contained was beans and guacamole.. I called them up to let them know of the issue and that I didn't have time to come back to replace them and that I'd just like a refund. The woman tells me that they don't give refunds. I tried to explain to her that they screwed up and it wasn't even my order and I was told that she was fully aware that they fucked up and they wouldn't be refunding me. I asked her politely one last time if she could make the situation right and she flat out refused.. I called my bank and they're refunding the charge but now I've burned the bridge of the only burrito place within walking distance of our new home... FUCK. Their only fucking job is to make fucking burritos and sell them to people, it's not that fucking hard, yet those stupid motherfuckers can't even do that correctly..
Huge FUUUUCK YOU to Amazon Japan for blocking my VNC service's servers so I can no longer watch your Prime Videos. Double fuck you to my VPN service from handwaving that it's a problem and saying they aren't doing anything about it even though THAT'S THE SERVICE THEY ADVERTISE ON DOING.
because Niall is the homie, and a good dude, super helpful in this community. I'm positive he wouldn't do anything jeopardizing. Sorry to call you out, Maddie we've had some good convos and you seem really cool but gotta stick up for my dude haha
Niall is definitely a great dude. Advertising for a one off Nekomata lottery is kind of a dick move, even if not intentional. Just my opinion.
I'm not Maddie, but most folks here don't like to talk about lotteries until after they are over so that there are fewer in the pool to win. Promoting a lottery for a single item like that will make the odds of winning very low, unless you have shills of course.
Just out of curiosity, how do you know that Dennis didn't submit the lottery info for SoftToyHobby to post? When I used to work for KR, we always used to send out release info for all of the toy bloggers. We would even feed them "intentional" leaks..
Posting lottery info definitely makes your odds go down. Introducing more people to the scene makes picking up releases even more difficult however it also grows the community and later down the line, you've got more people to buy/sell/trade with..
I'm not saying it's right or wrong, just playing devil's advocate..
I guess what I was trying to say was I didn't think Niall deserved a public "fuck you". Dudes a gem! I simple DM "hey man keep the lottos secret!" Coulda worked.
If he's reading skullbrain and gives a shit about someone posting a "fuck you" about his hypebeast website then he should know better, and therefore probably doesn't care. People who've been in this hobby for years generally don't appreciate people helping to make these toys even harder to get. I hope he survives this brutal assault on his character
I'm sure he'll survive, I also hope everyone survives the brutal attack on the lotto. Fear not though, I'm sure they'll all go to loving homes.
Fuck you, Hulu you useless sack of shit.
What I meant was generally all covered above. Don't know the guy personally, just think it's pretty sleazy to repost a one-off lotto of an already very tough to acquire one-off toy onto a very public website, when it was meant to stay in Dennis' mailing list.
I'm not even interested in the lotto, I just know how incredibly flippable Nekomata is, and how having this info public just lowers the chance of it getting into the hands of a collector. If it was a run of 20, I wouldn't blink an eye... but a one-off?
Ah well. Just my two cents.
^^ IMO it does deserve a fuck you. If you've been around this long enough you know what's kosher and what's not. You know that the info wasn't posted anywhere else, and was in an email sent to people only on the mailing list. That's not shit you just air out to everyone. I didn't enter that first one either, but for the legit fans that entered, I'm sorry your chances were worse off because of a stupid hype post to a blog.
I think this was brought up elsewhere too about him posting lotteries? So this isn't the first offense? I don't know the guy or anything either... just saying!
People had a similar issue with Lowbrownie posting HXS lottos. Someone e-mailed him nicely and he stopped. I just don't see the need to get that upset. If he is that dedicated to covering the scene that he wants to take the time to do a write-up, more power to him. I think blogs have a place in the toy world and I think he does a nice job of letting uninformed, or new collectors know what's out there. The ultimate objective of collectors should be to continue to foster growth in the scene. If we respect these artists so much, why wouldn't we want to increase public knowledge of them and their works? I understand why some people would be salty about him posting a 1 off, but calling it sleazy, or his blog a "hypebeast" is just silly.
^^ I think the issue here is a continued practice on his end. If you take a look at said blog, a) it is filled with hype, b) there are a bunch of posts that are just lotto info. Not covering the scene, literally just here is how you enter for a chance to win said toy. Yes it is hype, sleazy might be a bit over the top, but to my knowledge this isn't new and has happened before with the same person/blog.
The postings definetely are very succinct and fact based, but he also seems to cover pretty much everything from toys that are super popular to those with much smaller followings. It's a pretty thorough snapshot of what's out there. @dannyvslc
Fuck those nightmares that are so realistic and vivid that they leave you rattled all day.
Oh god, those are definitely the worst. I have those kinds of nightmares when I get super stressed-out, and they really affect you because it's like you were just living it. Probably the most telling part is I can't recall them weeks later. I think my brain purges/blocks those memories now, but only if I don't share them. (That seems to lock them into memory better)
I do vaguely remember one I had a couple months ago about being in a large dorm-like setting and having to keep my grandma there on life support, and then being chased by a bunch of high school bullies with knives to the edge of an elevator shaft... then having to jump and waking up screaming. FUN!
Can't wait for Trump's grilling today at 2:30 EST. You know he's going to deflect and deny, accuse the media of being fake in the face of more overwhelming evidence that somethings not right in dodge! The fact that Sessions has a selective memory about meeting with Russian officials and won't recuse himself speaks volumes. Was fun watching that assclown Paul Ryan do the same and squirm this morning in front of the press. The Republicans can try an stand their ground, deny, and pretend they are unified all they want. The cracks are starting to show as the scope gets bigger and everyone tries to save face. Fuck you Ryan, Trump, Sessions, and your whole fucking cabal!
I mean what crackpipe are they smoking to think anyone believes anything they say? Take EPA regulations. "We certainly want clean air and water" they say. Yet by cutting EPA's budget immensely and laying off a quarter of the staff all while deregulating and allowing polluters to dump in to streams/rivers says we are basically telling you what we think you want to hear and doing the exact opposite! Saving fucking coal plants and jobs in West Virginia? That's your reasoning?! We should be fucking using cleaner sources of energy and moving on from archaic polluting methods that contibute massively to carbon emissions! Hell even the Chinese are attempting this.
When I dream of people I know, I have to call them to check up because something bad always happens. My little sister has these kinds of dreams too, but hers are death dreams. So basically she dreams of people dying and I dream of people almost dying or just something bad happening to them.
I rarely have dreams about people I actually like. They're either "dream people" or assholes from my past.
A good friend of mine from Arizona, now residing in CA, has had talks with her parents about Trump. Her father has written
relationship healing books, my term. It doesnt take a surgeon to write a book, but they both are still falling for all the
lies Trump is feeding them. They believe with all their hearts that a rich piece of shit from a reality show really cares
about the common man. Being in CA keeps you from realizing some people are incredibly ignorant.
Honestly if I could have my way- and I mean this with every bone in my body, I'd grab to the Northeast, the northern States, and the west coast and basically separate us from the heartland and south and form a new country. Lets see how the midwest and south would fare with nothing but agriculture to suffice them? California alone has the 6th largest economy in the world. Seriously. I'm so tired of being constantly dragged back to the 1950's or before, having their religious views shape policy, zero rights for women, minorities, and workers, no regulation in industry and protection of the environment. I'm so sick of these fucking yahoos having a say. Now, this is not condeming everyone who lives in these areas either. Obviously progressive people live there as well as yahoos living in the aforementioned areas. It's just they have a voice in government and I'm sorry voting against your ultimate own interest while giving weight to fear mongering is not the way forward. I don't agree with everything the dems do either but for sure behind every republican motive is transfer of wealth by enriching themselves and their cronies and using fear mongering to achieve that end.
My own father, who till this xmas I had not seen or spoken to in 25 years, disappointed me with being a Trump supporter as well (when I saw him)! He claims to be a independent but truely believes Trump's going to bring back jobs and the economy. If anything it is clearly obvious he will do the opposite, and really wasn't it Obama who saved us from the financial crisis created by the Republicans?! The only reason you're seeing stock market gains is because corporations and industry are licking their chops at completely incompetent administrators (or people to dismantle them) being put in charge of every regulatory agency and the fact that now know they will be able to get away with just about anything!
I mistakenly thought this Trump speech was going to be a press conference to address the Sessions situation but it's him standing there like a sack of shit professing how much he's going to boost the military industrial complex like some fucking facist dictator.
LMAO well again didn't think Sessions would recuse himself but he "partially" did at 4pm today. By partial I mean only in reference to the time prior to this adminstration taking office. I guess the shitstorm which had been boiling all day called for it, but I guarantee as this investigation widens he will have to give a full recuse. Trump prior to the press conference said he didn't think he should (recuse). This is significant because I think the Trump is throwing pawns under the bus to shield himself much like Nixon did with Watergate. The ship is sinking and the rats are scurrying.
