full line up

[ As usual, I was wholly consumed by abstract matters such as Time and Responsibilities … but let me momentarily keep the beasts at bay to announce what else has been keeping me busy: preparations for the last edition of ABCD!

For those who don’t know the project: each year we gather a team of musicians, artists and tuners to create a free digital album for KAITO’s 4 birthdays ( A through D ). While I know baiting with names has promotional value, the full line-up won’t be out until November 2 ( Smiling KAITO Day, see below! ), so I can’t say anything on that yet … other than that we have a lot of returning participants, but we’re still seeking some extra!

The information site is over at @abcdinformationeng , so please see there for all details. If you have any other questions after reading it, you’re welcome to send me a message here! We’re largely still looking for some artists and tuners, but musicians are still welcome, too!

Oh, though, if that works as bait … I can tell you we have a theme this year, and it’s “fairytale”. I couldn’t think of anything more apt to give VOCALOID’s blue prince his happy ending … so let’s write it together, one last time! (๑•̀ㅂ•́)و ]

“Both taking on a challenge and creating something is painful. But it’s fulfilling. So thank you, for sweeping away the dust that had collected on my body, for encountering me. Ever since that day, my world, even the keyboard, became colorful.”

2017.08.16 HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SHUKASHUU!! (இ⌓இ )ゞ

Every time I watch you dance, your energy and enthusiasm are so overwhelmingly refreshing, it was like you were born to perform. You’ve taught me, many, many times over, that simply watching someone enjoy doing what they love most is magical. Good luck at Kobe this weekend! We’ll be cheering for you. Thank you for inspiring me ( ̄^ ̄)ゞ

Rare Pair: How about Raji and Shirayuki? ^^

Oh my goodness. I’m gonna be honest with you - This is typically my NOTP, but seeing how I this is a mental exercise, I’M GUNNA GIVE IT THE OLD COLLEGE TRY. XD

I’m pretty sure that my main issue lies with Raji in the beginning: the way he is introduced is just so off putting (yes, yes. I know. Historical context and all, but STILL), but after those first few episodes he is an adorable and sputtery awkward taco. SO LET’S CHANGE THE PLOT A LITTLE - THAT’S WHAT AU’S ARE FOR.

I actually was taking to @akagami-no-rae about this one about a week or so ago? And we came to the conclusion that Raji/Shirayuki works BEST with a

Fuck Shoplifters

So my moron customer of the day is a real doozy. Skinny bitch with a pinched face, asshole son driving one of our electric carts around and around the front of the store while wearing one of our hats with the tag torn off. When I got there she had the electric’s basket full and was working on filling a THIRD full size cart with random crap from the 1-5 dollar area known as [redacted]. [Which is my area to zone.]
Security is watching her, the front line manager is watching her, two upper managers are watching her, I’m watching her and we’re all waiting for her to put something in her giant ass fake Gucci purse where one of us can see it.
So I suggest to security that we tell her kid to get off the cart because, you know, someone disabled might want it? We get the okay and she takes 15 minutes to slowly unload the fucking electric while security stares at her.
I see that she’s got two full carts lined up at the lanes and security says there was a guy who came in sort of checking her out. We think he’s the getaway driver. Basically push-out is a type of shoplifting. You just fill a cart and scoot outside with it. Once you’re outside you can stand there loading your car and all we can do is call for the police and hope they get there in time. So I drive a line of carts in the way to block the two full carts behind the checkout lanes. We know there’s no chance in hell she’s gonna pay for this stuff and we’re all tense watching to see what goes down.
She’s crouched down below the [redacted] display just loading shit up by the handful and finally, finally, our HR manager, goes up and says something to her. And this bitch got shrill. The guy comes sliding over and the two of them start arguing. Apparently he ‘broke down on the highway’ and she came in here with the kid for some reason. We think maybe she wanted to push out and he refused to do it?
And as they’re storming off, HR goes “so are you going to pay for the food you ate?” [Boom bitch] So I’m like “I can take you over here at the service desk”. And she had nothing. She made the guy pay for the ten dollars worth of food and stomped off back into the store for a few minutes while he flailed. And I asked if he was going to pay for the hat. He refused but I can’t do anything. [The kid had greasy hair and he’d been wearing it for at least two, maybe three hours.] She comes back with a bag and wants to do a return. [Hoo boy. Return fraud is common, steal a thing and then return it with no reciept for store credit. But guess what? I get to refuse if it’s shady.]
She’s got three things. Two of them I find on her card and do the return and she’s crying. I tell her I’m not taking back the clutch cause she has no proof of purchase. I didn’t even give a reason. She was incredulous as fuck but too damn bad. She says it’s not fair and I just shrugged. Too bad. You’re just mad cause you didn’t get to steal as much from us as you wanted too. [We think she may have gotten away with a fitbit.] But when they were done doing the recovery recipt it was over $3000 worth of random accessories and dollar item stuff. It took me FOUR hours to put it all back with a bit of help and minimal inturruption. Fuck your tears. That shit comes out of our hours for the whole store.

anonymous asked:

What is the worst (most powerful/terrifying) outlaw you've encountered? Either casually (like accidentally ran into them in a bakery or something) or having to fight them or attempting to take pictures of them whilst they're fighting other marines...

“…Pretty much all the key players at Marineford, honestly. I’ve never seen anything worse than that. Not even close.”
