dibble dabbles


1/17/2018- Pony acquisition post #460: Mixed G1 and G3 lot- including my first Italian Pony!

Awesome! A lovely trade with another collector all the way from Italy got me some lovely pulls! 

G1 wise, I got NSS Shady, exclusive to the UK (we got a SS release here in the US). It’s surprising that I don’t have a Shady yet- since she’s so popular and was in the TV series quite often! She’s lovely and her NSS version shows her BRIGHT colors!

I also got my first Drink and wet baby Baby Flicker! Although her gimick is kind of strange (she has a tube that goes from her mouth to her….butt…so when you feed her water she….wets her diaper), I really like her pose and color combo, as well as her cute symbol!

G3 wise I got SLH Dibble Dabble! I’ve fallen in love with SLH ponies and she takes the cake with her awesome color combo! Maybe she’s related to toola roola with her painting symbol?

I never knew how pretty and different Italian Firefly was compared to her US release! Firstly, her body color is a tad lighter as a pretty soft pink. On her hooves also “Italy” is stamped on them, and her symbol is matte without the glitter finish! Her eye paint is also different and lovely. 

Also included were some bonuses! I got a sweet G4 stationary set including a notebook, a pencil, pen, eraser, pencil sharpener, ruler, and pencil case! I love this and I think I’m gonna save it for when I go to school later this year!

Lastly, she included a big bundle of random toy accessories- can anyone else identify anything from here? I know that the two large pink brushes are from G3 So softs but other than that I can’t identify anything else….

Original Condition:Very good!!

Flaws: NSS Shady has some ink spots on her NDS

Restoration materials: none

Current condition: Very good!


Another dibble dabble in that piano

The Weeknd still uses drugs for inspiration

Los Angeles, Dec 5 (IANS) Singer The Weeknd still turns to drugs when he needs help with his music.

“I dibble and dabble and what not. Everything in moderation. When I had nothing to do but make music, it was very heavy. Drugs were a crutch for me. There were songs on my first record that were seven minutes long, rambling – whatever thoughts I was having when I was under the influence at the time,” The Weeknd told The Guardian’s Weekend Magazine.

“I can’t see myself doing that now. I’ll be completely honest with you. The past couple of albums, I do get back to that. Even on this new album. You have writer’s block. And sometimes you’re like, I can’t do this sober,” he added.

He cancelled his tour and something happened to his inspiration.

“I guess it was the weight on my shoulders. I’d cancelled a tour – a lot of money. I had these ideas, but I couldn’t put them on wax. If you were a psychologist, you’d probably tell me there was stress in my life, taking away from my work. I had to get that little jump. And the ball started rolling. And then I didn’t need it anymore,” he said.

The “Can’t feel my face” hitmaker also shared that he doesn’t necessarily agree with some of the lyrics he wrote about women when he was younger.

“I don’t think I’d ever apologise for music I make, no. But there are regrets in my life, of course. And you write about it. The mind of a 19-year-old is very different from the mind of a 26-year-old. You grow.”

“You get into better relationships. You experience more, meet more people, better people. But when you’re in a dark hole, at an earlier point in your life – you write about the mindset you’re in at that moment,” he said.

BW: What was it like growing up in Ohio?

Mark: Poor… The economy there was really poor. My dad was in the military. My grandma raised me. My mom passed away in my arms at fourteen. She had this medication that would almost immediately stop seizures. She locked her jaw and she wouldn’t let me put it in her mouth and that was it. She didn’t want it. She wanted to go. 

She had renal cell cancer but it was the seizure that killed her. She went through almost two years of chemo. That’s when I started dibble dabbling with pain pills. That’s how I started on heroin. 

Then my brother committed suicide two years later. He was only twenty-one. Then my grandpa passed away two years after that and he was like my best friend. All my grandma’s got left is me and my sister. 

BW: Do you ever talk to her?

Mark: I talk to her almost every day. I’m the only person who talks to her. 

BW: You ever think about getting back to Ohio?

Mark: Ah yeah. I’d love to get back to Ohio. I’m not going now because it’s getting cold. It’s freezing up there. I’m fighting with the VA right now for my benefits. Once I start getting my benefits, then yeah I’ll shoot back up to Ohio. 

BW: Do you have any regrets?

Mark: Using drugs for starters. I wish I’d never touched a needle in my life. 

My dad just passed away this year and I was in jail when he passed away. That’s a big regret.

BW: I’m sorry, man.
