The Voltron Food Fanzine is a charity fanzine themed around food! All profits will go towards Oxfam, an “international confederation of charitable organizations focused on the alleviation of global poverty.” We figured the profits from a zine themed around food should go towards helping those suffering from hunger and famine crises.

  • Entree Bundle: 46 Copies
  • Dessert Bundle: 24 Copies
  • Gourmet Bundle: 17 Copies
    • SPECIAL NOTE: When these copies sell out, there will NOT be another preorder for them! (Excluding the special very small round of preorders we will be opening specifically for Canadian and Australian buyers who were held back from getting one because of PayPal issues.)
  • PREORDERS CLOSE MAY 21ST
    • HOWEVER, individual bundles may sell out before preorders as a whole close! Get them before they sell out!

For more information on zine specifics, please read the description of the Preorder Listing. For a better look at previews, scroll through our zine preview tag on tumblr and our twitter! All of our artists worked so hard and produced such amazing work that we can’t wait to share! ✩

Kiribaku / Bakushima fanzine application.

!! Please REBLOG to HELP THIS PROJECT to find other KiriBaku artists !!

We love this ship with all our heart, but it seems that unluckily it isn’t that popular in Japan; and there are almost no doujinshis about them. We want that to change, We’re determinated to draw a doujinshi about them and we’d like to know if there are other KiriBaku lovers that would like to participate and make an anthology.

Our idea of the project is to make a digital fanzine about 90 pages length with both dojins and illustrations. The book will be about the relationship between Bakugou Katsuki and Kirishima Eijirou from Boku No Hero Academia / My Hero Academia.

We’d love to print the fanzine, but this can only happen if people gets interested on it. Digital format is a more safe way to proceed, but if -for any reason- the project happens to become popular we can always open preorders ( and make merch, like charms or badges. ♥♥ )


APPLY HERE

Deadline for application: 15/07/16


  • If many artists apply and we have to decide who to choose, we’ll take the artists that draw better we’ll make a poll with innocent hands: We’ll ask a different amount of people (friends, family, randoms, etc), who has different tastes, which are they favourites and then we will decide. We don’t want to decide only by ourselves because we want to have a huge of different styles and don’t want to be influenced by our preferences, so making a huge poll with not-related people seems the most fair way to decide. Being popular or having lots of notes in your art doesn’t give you priority, basically because people who will decide will not know who you are.
    • 15 pages is the maximum length of each dojin.
    • Illustrators can make 1 or 2 pieces.
  • Example: If we sell one copy for, I don’t know, 3$ for example and we are 6 artists, each one will recieve 0,50$. If we sell 10 copies for the same price, each artist would recieve 5$, and so on. We will take exactly the same amount than any other artist.
  • If we are able to print the fanzine, We won’t ask any artist to contribute with money. We’ll do it with the printed copies preorder’s money. If we recieve enough money to print the book, we’ll do it. If we don’t reach the amount we’ll just return the money to the customers. And if we sell a lot and make earnings, money will be used to pay equally all the artists of the fanzine.
  • The number of artists that can participate is still not decided. Depending on how many artists want to draw a comic and how many want to draw an illustration, the number of artists selected will change.

We really really wish people participates because a KiriBaku antology is like a dream to us. We hope to make it possible! If you have any question, just send a message.

We really appreciate reblogs, please do it if you can so we can reach all the KiriBaku artists as possible. Thank you so much. ♥♥

hey, idk if this is the blog to ask regarding the journal 3 se but holy fu king hell ive only gotten into the fandom recently and this whole preorder thing is killing me. is it really still a limited edition??? will alex not release more books for those who didnt get to preorder??? WHY IS BARNES AND NOBLE STILL OPEN FOR PREORDERS???? FIRST OF ALL THEIR SERVICE IS SHIT AND IM 78% SURE YOU WONT EVEN GET THE BOOK but like??? amazon has theirs closed?? do i dare order from b&n??? im dying

Man, the limited edition was even MORE limited if you believe it. There were originally only going to be 1,000 copies made but the pre-orders sold out by the end of the first day. We’re honestly lucky BN apparently still has some? So, better get on that now if you still want it. Lol.

I honestly don’t know why Disney continues to underestimate this fandom’s dedication. You know the only reason we even got a regular Journal 3 was because a bunch of Disney merch people came to one of the GF panels at a con and were finally convinced by the fan enthusiasm. (Panel rooms ALWAYS got full beforehand with many still waiting in line unable to get in. They never gave Alex the biggest room for them, unfortunately.)

(This is also an unsubtle hint for everyone to join the letter writing campaign to get Gravity Falls on DVD.)

And welcome to the fandom!

I’m reflecting at the end of each term to snapshot my progress, and because maybe it would be helpful? It’s all about school things, so feel free to ignore.

Progress:

28% finished with this program. I have seven more modules over 3.5 semesters, which sounds a lot more palatable than 56 weeks. I’ve already made it through 32 weeks of school this year. This is the longest year.

Reflection:

  • I’ve finally proven to myself that I’m a hell of a lot more capable than I gave myself credit for even a year ago. 
  • Without noticing, my mindset has shifted from I can do this to I am doing this. And I am! I made the Dean’s list! What the hell! That’s all those hours of hard work being validated. That’s 90% back on my tuition reimbursement. 
  • I can’t kill myself for that A. Finding balance between ‘excel’ and ‘live your life well, even during this’ remains elusive. I literally have to check mark ‘quality time with kids’ and ‘self care’ in, which sucks, but it will hopefully help.
  • This week, as one semester rolled into the next, I remembered to preorder my textbooks, fill out my FAFSA, and contact my advisor. That’s a level of adulting I didn’t have a year ago, or even six months ago. ADHD and Depression for me mean executive dysfunction - nothing gets paid, I don’t keep appointments, etc. And here I am, doing all of the things, and even planning in advance. Damn, it feels good to be in a better place, even if managing stress is still difficult.
  • The school part is getting easier. Each module (8 weeks) is more efficient than the last, and each week brings more confidence that I’m going to be just fine. I don’t always feel fine. I have anxiety attacks about tests–mostly finals–and I still go through my second half dip/executive dysfunction bout around week 5-6. But I’m rallying faster, and I’m recognizing those patterns and interrupting them sooner. 
  • Basically: I’m making progress, and that progress feels good. I can see the arc of where I need to be, and I am putting the tools in place to get myself there.

Things I nailed:

  • Getting all of those little projects done so I could slack on the tests a tiny bit. Those 5 and 10 point assignments add up, and they really saved my butt in the second half when I checked out.
  • Reading. I’m improving my reading time/comprehensive, as well as faster note taking.
  • Pushing through apathy and turning in assignments, even if I didn’t want to.
  • Reflection papers. I had so much angst during the first week, but I’ve found that I can still knock a paper out in 20 mins and receive full marks. 
  • Utilizing Pomodoro to stay on task. (And, more importantly, using Pomodoro to limit Tumblr/procrastination time.)
  • Effectively utilizing my bullet journal to keep my tasks organized.

Opportunities for improvement:

  • Reading early and studying incrementally. Translate those notes into note cards and use them! I have 7 tests over 8 weeks, which means I really need to improve my study habits.
  • Prioritize tasks instead of just listing them! And give them a deadline. And then stay on schedule!
  • Utilize pockets of work time for chapter reading, studying, etc.

Things to look forward to:

  • Getting Dean’s list at the end of the semester!
  • Extra long Thanksgiving break in 5.5 weeks!!
  • An entire month off in 8 weeks. 
  • Thinking, finally, about that master’s degree. It’s a long-forgotten dream, something intangible, but if I look on my tippy toes, I can see it.

Motivational quotes for each week:

  1. You must tell yourself, ‘No matter how hard it is, or how hard it gets, I’m going to make it.’ Les Brown
  2. Dream big. Work hard. Make it happen.
  3. A ship is always safe at shore, but that’s not what it’s built for.
  4. Don’t tell people your dreams. Show them.
  5. Intelligence without ambition is a bird without wings. Salvador Dali
  6. Today I have the power to change my story.  
  7. Mistakes are proof that you are trying.
  8. When you feel like quitting, think about why you started.

Reminders to self: 

  • Ask for help. 
  • Take care of yourself. 
  • Go hiking! 
  • Write dammit. Write instead of watching TV.
  • Be kind to yourself.
  • Sometimes, the kindest thing you can do for yourself is put your nose to the grindstone and get shit done, Linds.
  • You’ve got this!

Sorry, you're probably sick of all the DLC questions, but I was curious about DLC that's exclusive to certain stores or for preordering the game. How is it decided how the DLC gets distributed and who gets to sell what? Are there special contracts or deals between the stores and game companies?

It’s a negotiation thing. If the publisher is small and/or the retailer is huge (e.g. Walmart, Amazon, etc.) the retailer could demand better treatment (e.g. an exclusive preorder bonus) to put those games on the shelves. Or, if the retailer is trying to entice the publisher to sell in their stores, they could offer to take a smaller cut per sale or stock more units. The retailer or publisher could even strike a promotional deal with multiple parties or games involved. Amazon could give Square-Enix free featured ad placement for their next five games in exchange for an exclusive preorder bonus for all five of them.

There’s no such thing as a “standard” marketing deal like this, so it could be any or all of these, or even other options I haven’t mentioned. Amazon could require that any Lumberyard-based game provide them exclusive content or provide publishers that use Lumberyard free web services. Walmart or Target can give better shelf space locations at their stores, Gamestop could require all of their employees to verbally offer/suggest the publisher’s game at checkout, and so on and so forth. It’s all business.


Got a burning question you want answered?

Announcement!

Hello friends!

You know how I’ve been stressed about job searching and interviews and stuff?

Today I accepted an offer to work as a translator at a tech company in Tokyo :D!

I interviewed there on Wednesday and it seemed like a really good fit, so I’m excited <3 Like, I’m actually really looking forward to working there, which is something I had almost given up on since my goal at this point was just “find anything so I don’t have to leave Japan”, lol. But, it looks like I’ll be able to make good use of my CS background while mainly focusing on translating, which is perfect <3

But anyway, for all y’all following me for scans/downloads/goods/etc, this is very good for you because it means a) I’ll still be in Japan for the foreseeable future, so I can continue to provide all of that, and b) I’ll be in Tokyo, which means I can see/do even MORE things :D!!!

(I’ve been buying tickets and preordering DVDs without knowing for sure whether I’ll be in Japan when they come out, LOL. Now I can definitely see I*Chu and Ensemble Stars and Jin’s event and everything (*´ω`*))

Also now that I’m done with the job search I can get back to subbing (๑•̀ •́)و✧ Well, I still have to search for a place to live, and prepare for moving, and all that shit, but. one thing at a time ヽ( ̄▽ ̄)ノ

anonymous asked:

How did you first get into DL?

 ehhhhh this is a slightly embarrassing answer. also it is my complete history with DL lol sorry.

SOOO the very first time I saw anything DL-related was something a friend posted. IIRC it was the first episode of the anime + she changed her icon to kanato. I thought he looked really cute?? also tbh i had a huuuuge crush on her and wanted something to talk about lmao.

A note to Taylor

Hey girl! I’ve missed you! I can’t wait to see you on tour but can I just say one thing about this whole verified fan thing? I think it’s kind of ridiculous that you want your fans to have to work and spend more money just for the chance to buy tickets to your concerts. Haven’t we already done enough during the 1989 tour when we basically campaigned our asses off just to get a chance to get noticed by you and meet you? It’s greedy as hell. Your fans are already going to preorder and buy your albums and your merch. It’s guaranteed. We love you. If you want tickets to be bought by fans, there are better ways to do this. @taylorswift

anonymous asked:

I thought pet didn't work for you

I fixed them. Turns out it was kinda my fault xdd Soo apparently EA wanted to charge me for the preorder 2 weeks ago. By that time, my paypal was empty cause I had to lend some mun muns to my mom mom xd I was sure they’re gonna charge the day it comes out tho so I had no idea. I didn’t even think to check my mail. But EA does it pretty dumb too, I mean as I was trying to download, I was getting the internet connection error or “try later” as if they couldn’t add one error that says your payment was faulty. If I wanted them to proceed my payment again, I’d have to call the EA Help on monday cuz it’s weekend now and waaaait this whole time. So I figured it’s better to just cancel my preorder and buy the game normally. They charged a little more than for the preorder so that’s shit but in the end I finally have them so I don’t even care anymore lol. And here ends a story of my silliness. :P

Rockman Sound Box 2 front and back in a little higher resolution than I’ve been able to find online. Has this really been out for almost a full year?

Never got the pencil board that was given as a preorder bonus, but to be honest, I like the gold background better than plain ol’ white anyhow.

The only problem I have with most of these official soundtracks is that the themes just never loop enough for my taste. I get disc space, and that many people don’t necessarily want 5+ minute tracks. But even for the Game Boy tunes, I need me more than 1:20 of Ballade and 50 second boss themes!

anonymous asked:

Hey I was wondering if you would recommend preordering the Bluray/DVD from Crunchyroll or from Funimation. Is one better than the other or more reliable?

hi! i’m afraid i can’t really help you out here, i’ve never bought anything from either before! but i do think they’re both reliable, and it doesn’t really matter which place you get yours from if you’re located in north america. since i’m in europe, i ended up preordering mine from crunchyroll bc i can’t access the funi website which appears to be blocked in other parts of the world. but apart from the country limitation, they’re probably both good places to buy from!

does anyone else have experiences you’d like to share?

anonymous asked:

Not to be a spoiled sport but we have to consider that fans who normally wait for album drop have preordered becoz of ticz. We hyping up the proj sales can backfire on us as haters and other fandoms are waiting to showcase taylor as flop

yes e.g. i have not pre-ordered yet. but i will do so shortly. and now its only $8! and i also have not pre-ordered target’s albums bc imma buy in person so like me alone thats 3 more units 

and people who are sitting around waiting for taylor to flop better get comfy that aint gonna happen l m a o 

There may not be a Christmas in the world of the Foldings but Jasper will do his best to ensure you feel like there is. (Although he may get things a little wrong!)

Thank you all for your incredible support this year, It’s been absolutely amazing! We got our first book out, met so many fabulous people and already have a few more stories and projects lined up for next year! All the preordered & kickstarter books have shipped, so if you’re looking for a little light and cheerful christmas reading, you can now buy copies & PDFs on etsy.

Have a wonderful christmas, and I hope, an even better New Year. See you soon!

I’m not blaming taylor for this at all but like honestly come on I live in the US, and I preordered way ahead of time. With 1989 I preordered the target deluxe edition and used standard shipping and it was supposed to come the day of the album release or a few days after but it ended up showing up three days early. So why is it saying I have to wait until a week after? Like I paid nearly $30 for this not $3, THIRTY. I honestly am annoyed. I was trying not to be but like the more that I think about it the more mad I get. I wanted to be able to listen to the album the day it come out on a stereo because to me it sounds better that way, but it looks like I’m gonna be forced to listen to it on my phone instead. Thank god I also preordered it on iTunes otherwise I would literally be waiting a full week after every one else to hear it.

I feel like we’ve been waiting decades for this and I’ve never been more exited!

Get ‘Treat You Better’ + 4 other tracks before release on September 23rd; once you preorder!!

Notes from Sarah J Maas' latest newsletter.

•ACOWAR is going to be long. Roughly between EoS and ACOMAF long.

•She’s been sick with Bronchitis and Sinusitis (that’s why she’s been silent on social media). But she’s getting better:))

•ACOWAR is her favourite title so far because of the meaning (wings), and the acronym, because….war is coming.

•We might get to see more courts of Prythian

•The cover reveal will be soon!!! And Sarah says that this one is her favourite because of certain elements they’ve added to it.

•Release date is May 2nd 2017.

•ACOWAR is already out for preorder!!

•The first scene was written to the following song from the Jane Eyre soundtrack. She refused to tell us who is in the scene. But she listened to this on repeat!!!

So you might’ve thought we’ve been slipping the past couple months with no new posts but we swear there’s a good fucking reason for the radio silence. We’ve been working our asses off on the book and now you can finally preorder your copy through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, IndieBound, or Books-A-Million.

We know y'all have been patient and we really appreciate that shit. We’ve poured everything we can into this damn book and it’s taking some time to get that shit right. We didn’t want some half-ass book that looks like we just printed off a bunch of stuff from the site. Naw, we know you deserve better than that. So this book hits hard with 100 brand new, tasty as fuck recipes that are guaranteed to elevate your kitchen game.

Stay tuned for more updates, behind the scenes shit, and all kinds of previews as we get closer to unleashing this beast of a book.

The Thug Kitchen Cookbook is coming for you October 2014.

Expect that shit.

I just got an email from saks saying my doll is delayed until 11/26 and that it's a preorder item :( do you think that means she's going to get cancelled and I'm better off trying for a store?

The stores are a more guaranteed way to go, Im not sure how the online orders work

Joanne Promo Submission

The following was submitted to me:

According to an insider I know, (he doesn’t work with Gaga directly, but he shared the album title, info on tracks and the track listing, and info on the PI music video…all back in July.) there is some pretty exciting stuff happening before the Joanne album release.

Tomorrow (maybe) will be when we are able to preorder the album. If not, it will 100% be on Sunday. Sunday is more likely, but I know Bobby wants the preorder to be open before the next single. But marketing wise, waiting until Sunday is better because…

Sunday we will get the first promotional single from Joanne!!! Which track, I’m not sure, but there is a liklihood that it is A-Yo, as this track was very well received at the NY party and it pays homage to the production of the album. Either way, A-Yo will be a single at one point in this era. 

This single will play a large part in the ad campaign that will also kick off for Gaga’s Superbowl Half Time Show!! She will be confirmed as the performer Sunday evening, after the single release. (They were planning on doing the release of the new song AFTER the announecment to really ride off that momentum, but after making a rash decision to formally release the track listing Bobby and the Haus saw clearly how pumped the fans are and there’s no need to wait until after the announcement!)

Next week will be slow otherwise. Gaga will be busy filming a music video. Location and creative teams/extras are already booked. Its the video for whichever single is being released Sunday.

The following week (first week of October) is when shit is hitting the fan. Seriously. The promotion they have set and booked for this album is insane. We are going to see Gaga everywhere. EVERYWHERE.

I haven’t been supplied the dates, but in the first 3 weeks (leading up to the Friday release) Gaga will be on Jimmy Kimmel to perform, will be the music guest for SNL (not the premiere, I haven’t been told which), will be interviewed and perform on Ellen, and will perform on GMA (she loves the environment there, performing Applause was so fun for her and she’s really excited to return!)

On Kimmel she will sing Promo1, on SNL she will perform both Perfect Illusion and Promo1- there will also likely be a teasing of the title track at the piano during the PI performance. And on Ellen she will perform PI. GMA will be a small performance of Promo1 and the music video will likely be release the following day.

The weekend before the release of the album will be another single. If this is when her SNL performance is (the 15th) then you can say goodbye to PI being performed and it will be both Promos, they planned for both before booking and my insider doesn’t know if she’s on the 8th or 15th. 

The video for Promo2 won’t be until after the album premieres, and Gaga and her team will be going dark the week of Joanne. No tweets, no snaps, MAYBE an appearance on TV (if it’s already booked) and the Superbowl ad campaign is going to take over. That week will be a lot of commercial spots featuring her songs, and even a commercial for the album itself (nothing spectacular, just a 10-15 second spot occasionally on FOX during their regular lineup. The day before the release the Superbowl campaign is planning on doing some cool stuff on social media which will include a snippet of Million Reasons (“There’s only a MILLION REASONS to see Gaga perform at the 2017 Pepsi Halftime Show!). I can actually guarentee that, Gaga’s team LOVES a good pun. 

Then the album will be released. And it will blow your mind. My favorite song is Dancin’ In Circles. I hope it gets a video at some point. Its a fucking jam and a half.

The tour is crazy secret. I know the Haus and Gaga are working on it. It will NOT be before March. They are staying sharply focused on the halftime show. There’s no way to truly emphasize how big this is for Joanne. They are working to make it flawless and they have some huge ideas. Aside from additional promotional time, some AHS events in November, and spending time with family for the cookbook release and holidays, Gaga is in meetings and rehearsals for the next 3 months for the halftime show. They are building the show by making a performance of each track and stitching them together. She’s basically learning and rehearsing a full 90 minute show and then finding the best moments to cut it to 20 minutes. 

Not much choreography is happening until the halftime show. Dont expect it in the next video or the TV performances. 

The tour supporting Joanne will be a feature with Intel as well. No new technology though, this era is about the music. There will be some sick cinematography during the tour though, that is what Intel is working on. And that’s literally all I know. It will probably be starting in time to carry her through the US in the summertime.

And Gaga has already been asked to receive the MJVA during the 2017 VMA. In fact, she was asked to receive in this year but turned it down because Bobby and the Haus didn’t want her to play much new music that far before the album release, and the NFL creative team didn’t want the album to be released any earlier. She would have had to pick one or the other to be the main promotion for this album and her team guided her to the right option.

Is this enough hype!? ;) Enjoy.

What do you think?

The stamps came but there were issues with the printing on the acrylic, so they’re going to replace it and it’s probably going to take another 2 weeks. I will send the preorders out as soon as they arrive, sorry!

Bottom two are the tests. I think markers work better than ink pad? I also adjusted the files before having them reprint so hopefully some of the smaller details will show more.
