not for resale

Almost the only channels I watch on TV are HGTV and ID, mostly HGTV lately.

And when I watch House Hunters or Love It or List It, I always whine about how picky some people are.  I guess home-buying with family and kids in mind isn’t something I can relate to.

(I’ve been told that I’m “selfish but with reason” … whatever that means.)

Honestly, I’d love to be on House Hunters.  

I already have my wish list:  3 beds/2 baths, open concept, new construction, windows in all rooms (for my cat), no carpet, industrial or modern or rustic style (or some elements from each of them), high ceilings, tiny courtyard (for my cat) but otherwise no backyard/lawn, stainless steel appliances, good curbside appeal, good resale value.

See, not picky at all.

okay one last thing about bootlegs before i’m off for the night

hamilton could literally give out professional recordings for free tomorrow, and it would not put a dent in any of it’s profits. there’s literally another album for it coming out on friday, it’s made three million dollars, it’s double platinum, people up charge tickets in resale to like 400 bucks and people still buy em, the lotto, merch, hamilton chicago/atlanta/los angeles/wherever else it’s gonna be next year. 

this isn’t some small show like tuck everlasting and american psycho was. it’s not gonna close anytime soon like fun home. it’s not being overshadowed by any other show like waitress and school of rock. and it sure as hell isn’t gonna lose any money if they put out a professional recording, free or not. 

so bottom line: if you’re one of those people that’s still bashing fans that watch bootlegs, not just of hamilton, but of any musical, you’re elitist/classist/and probably racist (cause yes, these things do go hand in hand believe it or not), and really just need to shut the fuck up cause the hamilton bootleg isn’t hurting a god damn soul.

Witch Tip?

Guys, You really don’t have to follow spells.

I have trouble posting original content often, because what I do is rarely consistent or planned out. My magick is very similar to my cooking - I create the best possible combination with what I have available to me, which is always changing. When we buy groceries, apart from basic ingredients like flour, butter, eggs, what I purchase is based solely on what happens to be the best deal for the day, or from the clearance sections that are about to be thrown away if not sold. This makes for an everchanging pantry where we really never eat the same exact meal twice. My spells are the exact same way.

I have some basic ingredients, mostly from a local health food store that sells tea ingredients loose and in bulk, but anything else is subject to change based on what I find. Most of our material possessions are purchased second hand from thrift stores or resale shops - which means availability is inconsistent, so my spell ingredients will be as well. Throw in that most of the time I am creating something, whether it be food or a charm or a magickal tool, and you can hopefully see why prewritten spells aren’t super important in my practice.

That being said, obviously it’s fine to use prewritten spells, I honestly have no qualms about how anyone else practices. I just see a lot of posts where baby witches are frustrated that they can’t find a spell to fit their needs.

Baby - if that happens, just do what you think will work! Whether it works or not, as long as you take notes on how you did things and what the end result was, you’ve learned something, I know modern society tends to view failure as immoral, but witchcraft is so individualized because it’s based on you, that the only way you will become better at it and more powerful is to experiment, test your instincts, and sometimes fail. Fuck it if you don’t find a spell to fit your needs, set out your ingredients and see what sticks out to you. Find your own associations. You’re not a witch failure if it doesn’t turn out.

If you don’t get the tickets to see Bangtan in Newark or Anaheim, it will be okay. Motivate yourself to work hard and save money to get yourself a passport and gift yourself a trip to South Korea.

Don’t buy resale tickets where sites are gonna sell them for $1000+!

Don’t bash on people who are able to buy tickets.

Don’t hate yourself for not getting to attend.

Don’t buy off of people easily if you don’t have their info. I rather everyone be safe than sorry if a scam happens.

Notes/Warnings:

For the sake of the prompt, we’re just going to pretend that tøp isn’t as popular as they are now. Also, Josh has yellow hair :)

You got your paycheck the other day and as happy as you were, you still had to spend majority of it on the necessities. Food, clothes, some books for school. It was a reluctant process, but you still did it. With a little money left over, you decided to head to the music shop right on the corner.
The place was lined with vinyls, drumsticks, guitar picks. Posters lined the dusty glass showcase on the outside, and sometimes they had deals on resale concert tickets. The place was essentially every music lovers dream.
As you stepped in, an aroma of musty cardboard and coffee hit your face. To you, it smelled wonderful, but to the average Joe it probably wasn’t the most desired smell.
Caleb, the clerk behind the counter, face lit up when he saw you set off inside the store.
“Y/N! Long time no see!”
You turned your attention to your old shaggy haired friend, “Yeah. Been busy ya know? But, I managed to go through all my vinyls too many times over and here I am” you joked. Caleb let out a light hearted smile, “Well, I hope you find something you like” he says.
“Me too”.

You begin to walk away from the counter, gazing at all the CD’s displayed on the rack. You quickly move to the vinyl section tucked away in the back corner. When you get there, you notice you’re not alone. A yellow haired boy stands on one side of the rack, eyes fixated on the music selections in front of him. You’re eyes ponder on his tattoo that runs up and down his arm. It looks like a brightly colored landscape with pits of nature in between. Pursing your lips, you return to the music selection sitting atop the rack.

Flipping through the vinyls, your hopes of finding something good begin to deplete. Most of these vinyls you already had or listened to numerous times . Your fingers suddenly come across a vinyl painted in black with black and orange circles planted in the middle. Curiosity begins to poke at your mind. “Blurryface” you whisper, examining the vinyl closely. The band behind the music was called Twenty One Pilots; however you’d never heard of them. Just as you flip the vinyl over, the boy with the yellow hair perks up, a small smile creeping across his face. “I recommend listening to that” he says suddenly, gesturing towards the black cover. You lift your head to meet his gaze. He has a snapback atop his head and a nose ring hooked around his nostril. “Really? Are they good?” you ask. The boy lets out a heartfelt laugh, “I hope they’re good” he says. You furrow your eyebrows. What does he mean he hopes? Didn’t he just say recommended it? “Excuse me?” The boy, “I said I hope they’re good, because that’s my band” he says, nodding his head towards the vinyls. You stand there in shock, mouth agape. “Are you serious?” you ask. The boy extends his tattooed arm, “Hi I’m Josh Dun, from Twenty One Pilots”

Kittyinva: Spectacular 1925 c. Elgin ‘Lady and the Tiger’ watch, part of the ‘Parisienne’ series designed by Lucien Lelong. 14 K white gold case (watch face), inlaid with enamel. Hand-winding. White gold bracelet of rings attaches to watch. From E-Collectique Luxury Resale.

I cleaned my Leica Dual-range Summicron 2/50. There was some haze inside on the two front elements that made the lens a “bad user” in backlight conditions.

I can tell you – this is not for the faint of heart! While the two front elements are not cemented and therefor not that delicate to handle, the way they are mounted is a little bit unusual compared to other lenses I cleaned before. I did some very minor damage to the coating of the front lens – so I might have diminished the resale value, but I don’t want to sell this lens anyway (because this is my all-time favorite Leica lens), and it is now fully usable again …

Kittyinva: 1918-19 c. Evening dress by Sadie Nemser of cream floral and bird-beaded Georgette silk with heavily hand-beaded motifs. Pale pinks and blue glass beads trim along the neckline and hem. There is a straight neckline with silk straps. The gown is lined in cream-colored silk. Designer Sadie Nemser designed Grace Coolidge’s Inaugural gown. From E-Collectique Luxury Resale.

My headcannon for Pat and Liam’s roles in the cryme tyme universe is that Pat is Matt and Woolie’s fence, buying their stolen goods for resale at a higher price for himself (also a crack dealer on the side). Liam would be their corrupt cop contact that sabotages investigations to keep the police off their scent, if they make it worth his while.

III: question of objectivity

Try your best to be objective, it says underneath the title. Arthur merely blinks at the last word, and decides it probably doesn’t matter what it means.

He looks at the tick-boxes: Poor, Adequate, Good, Very Good. 

His pencil hovers over the box furthest right. But it just doesn’t seem enough. ‘Very good’ is what you get at the bottom of exercise book-pages in scarlet copperplate. Or it’s to tell you the resale condition of those second-hand vegan cookbooks Herc likes to buy - either way, it’s not how Arthur would describe Martin. 

He goes off in search of a ruler.

An Important Post

Ok I’ve been wanting to talk about this for a while and something’s finally given me reason to so here we go, buckle up kids.

The accent market has gone to shit. There, I said it. 

The “5-10 print customs” thing is crap. Limited run/retiring accents are one thing, but honestly with most of these it’s just an expensive circlejerk status symbol. “Look how many customs from ____ I have! I will trade them but only for other 5-10 print customs so I feel exclusive!”

It leads to people taking advantage of artists, which is shitty. It’s bad enough that a lot of the time accent artists don’t see half the profit their works earn on the secondary market. It’s stagnated the market; good luck trying to find stuff for less common breeds or that isn’t the same boring #aesthetic. Personally, I feel like exclusive customs should stay as either 1-2 prints, or come with some sort of no-resale rider. If you change your mind and want to resell it one day, I mean, fine, but don’t take that as a chance to make an extra 10kg because you’ve got another status symbol to pawn. 

I have heard of accent artists having a commissioner auction a custom and then splitting the profits. And that’s cool. I like that trend. I don’t blame artists for wanting to make customs. They tend to be one of the few things on FR that command a fair price for the time investment. But when it gets to the point that people aren’t buying regular-run accents, but will fall over themselves fighting for custom slots, there’s a problem. 

And don’t get me started on the entitlement I see sometimes. Artists are not obligated to make customs for you, and they’re certainly not obligated to put in a ton of work in for you to take your extra copies and make a ton of money off them.

Stop being shitty to artists. Stop trying to take advantage of custom makers. You know who you are, and I know who you are, the same little circle of users with too much real cash to spend on a dragon game, and yet still you feel the need to be greedy. 

Yes, a lot of this is stemming from a series of incidents with a single person, but I’m vagueing about it because someone involved wants to stay out of drama. If I know you and you are that thirsty for details, I will discuss privately. 

TL;DR the accent market needs to stop doing what it’s doing.
