just went on sale

I recently reblogged a post about a Moana figurine coming out by the Hamilton Collection, pointing out that they use digital paintings/3D renders to sell their products without showing the end result. And when you see pictures from those that bought the item, they tend to be…less than stellar for their steep price tag of around 100 USD.

SO, I thought I should point out Enesco! Their figures are actually sold on the official Disney store website, so that alone should be a comfort- BUT also, not only do they tend to run a bit lower on the price scale, their products turn out much better AND they have really nice sales of around 30% off.

Examples!

I got a little carried away but this isnt even all of them. The prices range from 35-70 USD, which, compared to the usual 100 USD of Hamilton Collection, is amazing. We just got the Elsa one ourselves since it went on sale for 35ish and it looks around 8 to 8.5 inches (20.3 to 21.59 cm) in height, so they’re a good size too.

They DO have some that could use better face work, but honestly those are so few and far between when compared to the plethora of awesome/pretty af figurines.

They also have more than just Disney stuff, and it seems a lot of it you can get through Amazon. I dont THINK they have any Moana merch yet, but I would highly recommend keeping an eye out for it. I mean, Lenox is nice too but their faces also seem to have…problems, as a majority.

Fanfiction Sales

“And the sale of fanfiction books just went up!” Jensen joked, gesturing upwards with his index finger. 

You turned your head to look at him, giving him a sideways glance. “And what exactly would you know about the sale of fanfiction books, Jen?” you snickered, quirking an eyebrow. “Sweetie, most fanfiction is just online, mostly Tumblr. And they’re free. You don’t typically buy fanfiction,” you smiled, rolling your eyes. “And don’t go there. For heaven’s sake just stay away, Jen,” you added, when he just sat there smiling at you, his eyes zeroing in on you. 

You realized then that you might have made a bit of a mistake as your eyes met Jensen’s. You looked at him, practically begging him not to ask the question you could see forming in his head. You winced when he opened his mouth.

“Have you gone there, Y/N?” he asked, a smug look on his face. Smug bastard. You looked away from him and toward the crowd with a pointed, panicked look. Several of the audience members burst into laughter. 

Jared piped in. “She has!” he roared, punching Jensen in the shoulder. “She’s totally been there. Y/N do you read fanfiction?” Jared pushed as you turned away from him, running your hand through your hair. 

You ran your hand over you face which was all the confession the boys needed. Jensen got up and walked around to the other side of your chair, scooting you over a bit and joining you in your seat. “Seriously?” he laughed a little, putting his mic in his lap, leaning in close to you, wanting to keep this little conversation a secret. 

You leaned in, playing into his teasing. “I don’t just read it, Jen. I write it, too. You should see the things I write about you,” you whispered in his ear, pulling away with a wink. His jaw dropped slightly as his eyes went big flashing back and forth across your features trying to determine if you were telling the truth. 

“Show me?” he asked, curiosity getting the best of him. 

You ran your hand up one thigh as Jared continued to ramble on about Tumblr and fanfiction, very few people paying attention to the two of you. “I’ll do more than show you,” you whispered in his ear again, biting his earlobe gently. He pulled away with a slight shiver and smiled devilishly at you. You realized then that everyone was watching you and Jensen. 

“So?” Jared asked. “You’re all about fanfiction aren’t you?”

You looked at the audience as they waited with baited breath. There had always been rumors that you were lurking on Tumblr, and they were going to eat this up. “I dabble. I see things. I know what you girls think,” you laughed, smiling at the audience. There were whoops and hollers in return. You leaned over whispering into your mic, “I think those things too,” you said with a wink and the crowd went nuts. 

“Alright, alright!” Jensen waved his hands, standing and grabbing your hand, causing everyone in the room to laugh. “That’s enough. I think it’s time for the last question,” he turned to look at the girl waiting by the mic. “And it better not have anything to do with fanfiction or Tumblr!” he warned with a laugh as he turned and winked at you. 

You grabbed his neck and pulled his lips to yours for no reason other then to remind everyone that you were happy to share him, but at the end of the day, Jensen Ackles the man of many a fanfiction dream and legend, was all yours. 


Thanks @percywinchester27 for your gif submission. I’ll admit @ilostmyshoe-79 fic today got me thinking about this a little, so I spun it with Jensen instead of Dean. Hope you guys enjoyed. The whole idea of Jensen finding fanfiction makes me giggle a little, not gonna lie.

Ameblo 17/03/17 - Hidden letters in the Vacancy music video

Everyone, thank you for your comments

Today we recorded AKB48’s new single, Shoot Sign, which just went on sale a few days ago. I’ll upload some offshots from SKE48’s song, Vacancy, and talk about the story behind it.

First of all, Vacancy’s music video is really refreshing and cute. Also, from a technical point of view,  the members are naturally reflected upon since we filmed it in a white studio, which is really great!

When girls get filmed in a white location, they look paler and the skin feels matte, like a doll’s.

And here are my favourites.

Nice!

Nice!!!

It was not only nice how we all came out in the recording, but it was also fun.

Here are the members who got dirty. (That sounds terrible)

It feels vivid and has a pop image to it. This part has a cuteness to it that’s different from when it’s all white.

It feels more mischievous and more energetic. It’s nice!!!

And here’s the story behind it.

For Vacancy, my position is… well… to be frank, it’s in the back! A lot of people have been imagining various reasons as to why this is, however the positions were decided based on one’s individuality, strengths, weakness and what sticks out. Every member has their own strengths or weaknesses when it comes to different things. What was sought after was a sense of individuality that no one else possessed.

The music video for Vacancy was shot right after Natsu yo, Isoge!, like a week or so after lol, that kind of proximity. I always find out my position for a music video during the day we film it, and the difference between those two positions was very clear. Rather than feel down about it I thought “I’ll try harder!”

My intention has been to understand what I’m good at, my strengths, and what’s sought after from me for eight years. Nevertheless, that doesn’t mean that I’m trying to run away from the things I’m bad at, my weaknesses, and what’s unnecessary. I’ve decided to try doing everything I can with all my strength!!!

So what I’m getting at is: I want you to come meet me!

I know that’s quite a jump, but I’m spoiled by my fans who accept me and understand me. My love towards those fans is something that’s unwavering. Honestly, it’s okay if that’s the only thing I have.

However, I stepped outside my lane during the promotion for Kakumei no Oka, and I got to get in touch with a lot of other members’ fans. I felt a strange feeling of unity and felt pumped up during the badminton and the mystery live. It was a lot of fun! I was happy to get in contact with a lot of people! It gave courage to me, who was never confident of being accepted outside of my lane. Therefore I simply want to try talking with everyone, so please come and see me!

The problem is that there are few SKE48 handshake events! (゜д゜lll)

Hm… well there’s nothing I can do about that so I’ll have to leave that for when those come around, however when the next handshake events are decided, I’d like various people to lightheartedly come and see me.

Usually the past me would end by saying something negative, however perhaps by adopting the motto “don’t think negatively” I’ve become more positive this year.

What I’m getting at is…

I wrote “slap” on Oba Mina’s back, so please try and find it!

That’s all! lol

Probably unpopular opinion: I don’t like most of the endless harvesting/mining/logging tools because they don’t make sense visually.. I mean I was happy when they released the “no-frills” gathering tools, still haven’t bought it because too pricey though. Now only if those went on a 50% sale too!.. Molten tools are just 500 gems currently but I don’t wanna run around with such a silly-looking tool, it’d irritate me to no end.. Please anet give us normal, no-frills tools for 50% off too. :’D

This lovely Bowie tribute album, spearheaded by Amanda Palmer and Jherek Bischoff, just went on sale today. It’s pay-what-you like (minimum $1), and for the first month of sales (until March 5) all proceeds—minus the $0.54 to the Bowie estate for use of the songs—will be donated to the cancer research wing of Tufts Medical Center. I highly recommend it, both as a wonderful addition to anyone’s musical library and as a way to donate money to an incredibly worthy cause.

Do you know if all of Ed's US shows are having more tickets released tomorrow, or is it only certain cities? I'm wondering about Barclays in Brooklyn or Mohegan Sun in Uncasville.

I think it’s just certain ones, I didn’t get a text about any new tickets for the original two Barclays shows, just a text for the pre-sale tickets for the third show that went on sale today. But that could just be because I already have tickets and it was able to track that from my account (?)

Anyone else know about this?

anonymous asked:

I got one ticket to the St. Paul, MN show! It was so hard getting just one. Right when tickets went on sale, I was getting nothing for like 30 minutes. After an hour, there were only single seats left. I'm so happy I will be able to go!

Congrats! Don’t worry about sitting solo if you’ve never don’t it before. I’ve gone solo to a few Ed gigs and they’ve been some of the best ones I’ve been to ☺️
