Tama Depa: A Final Goodbye

The Tama Depa is a place every Tamagotchi fan dreamed of, a department store exclusively for Tamagotchi products. The Tama Depa’s carried every Tamagotchi branded item you could imagine, and some you would have never even thought of. Sadly today, February 26, 2017 the last Tama Depa in Harajuku Japan has closed its doors.

The Tama Depa in Harajuku was the most well-known one although there were other locations that had previously closed. The Harajuku Tama Depa originally had a doughnut shop containing eight doughnut flavors, drinks, and ice cream, and had a Kuchipatchi of Truth (a fortune telling Kuchipatchi statue) outside the store. Years ago the Tama Depa moved to a smaller location, roughly half the size of the original.

Many of us Tamagotchi fans never got the opportunity to visit a Tama Depa, but have only seen pictures and videos. The inside was quite vibrant with colorful product displays, Tamagotchi themed signage and of course the famous Tama Depa doughnuts. The Tama Depa was a great place to find Tamagotchi’s, Tamagotchi accessories and of course the Tamagotchi Deka’s where you would earn exclusive items.

Although it is unclear why Bandai decided to close the last standing Tama Depa we must assume it is because of declining sales and interest in the Tamagotchi brand. Bandai will continue selling Tamagotchi products through their online website and through retailers throughout Japan, but it just won’t be the same.

The Tama Depa was a core part of the Tamagotchi community, soon it will just be a memory; but it will never be forgotten. Goodbye.

K I’m gonna try and keep my whining to a minimum but the thing is, Ben knew the boys were most likely gonna win that award and still, even though he knew there was no actual hug, he teased at one anyway. For years he’s disrespected fans and invalidated us and it’s gross and I will never not be bitter that they’ve repeatedly chosen to work with someone who has no more respect for us than a middle aged man writing some shitty piece about how stupid boyband fans are.

Lana with a hidden braid.

So Morga (my sith warrior and Outlander in my universe), has been learning how to braid hair to help get back to her Alderaanian roots- especially after finding out Lana is pregnant. Because of course she will want to braid her kid’s hair.

Morga practiced on Lana and came up with a decent small braid. Lana was touched by it and decided to keep it. Morga made sure to do it under the rest of her hair so no one can really see it. Because Morga understands and respects Lana’s decision to keep their relationship on a semi-private basis. But sometimes the braid can be noticeable when Lana runs her fingers through her hair. 

Morga was originally going to use a green band since it’s Lana’s favorite color. But Lana insisted on a blue one as a tiny reminder that Morga is always with her.

anonymous asked:

Hi! I just got reeeeaaaaalllllyyyyy curious. Was it ever explained why he changed costumes for Seimei? Was the original one only used for Ice Shows or something? Because if I checked correct, he used the second version in all the competitions that season... thanks. :)

Nope, I don’t think it was ever explained. I think that costume was used only on Seimei’s “debut” (now, I haven’t checked, but I think it was DoI 2015), because yep, he used the other one all season after that. I think it might be due to the fact that the first version reflects the light in a different way, so, while it might have been perfect for the show, the effect might have not been as pleasing in competition. I honestly like it more, but the second version is probably more…suitable for competition ^^

The way I see it, Prince Lotor could either be a great opportunity for serious drama or just an absolute Team Rocket-style shitty villain, and either way I am 110% ready to see Voltron dropkick him into space.

Kadomatsu

a traditional Japanese decoration of the New Year placed in pairs in front of homes to welcome ancestral spirits or kami of the harvest. They are placed after Christmas until January 7 and are considered temporary housing (shintai) for kami. Designs for kadomatsu vary depending on region but are typically made of pine, bamboo, and sometimes ume tree sprigs which represent longevity, prosperity and steadfastness, respectively

We can’t control what white people do. Telling them to stop isn’t going to make them stop.  Instead of wasting energy trying to convince people who benifit from our oppression to stop oppressing us, we can put that energy into protecting and building our community. Stop arguing with them, stop trying to explain to them that we don’t hate them and don’t want to kill them all. Stop trying to convince them to stop ignoring racism. Cause they won’t. They don’t care , they won’t take responsibility, they won’t empathize.

Instead, we can turn the focus on what we can do to protect ourselves from the foolishness. 

That doesn’t mean, never speak up when they do some foul shit. But our primary effort should not be asking them to change because they won’t.   

Okay but like, headcanon that Pidge took a bunch of spare tickers and reprogrammed them in her spare time to act like rudimentary smartphones for all of them. She programs a space twitter onto it and everyone is instantly hooked


Lance: Hah, look guys! Keith only has six followers on Space Twitter, how lame!

Keith: Lance, there’s only six other people on the ship.

Lance: Pfft whatever mullet, still lame.

Keith: *goes to Lance’s page, hits unfollow* Hey guys, Lance only has five followers on Space Twitter, how lame.

Lance: KEITH!!!!
