    a kinda fuck you to the people around me who keep talking about doing bigger and better things but never follow through!

    while i was at DV in connecticut i decided that i wasnt going to wait for anyone anymore. i love art and making art and being able to live because of art. i thought i had dropped all of the dead weight years ago but i was wrong! i hate missing out on opportunities that would benefit my career because some loser cant make up his mind. taking leaps is scary sometimes but id rather try and fail than sit back and let the world run laps around me.

    God damn I guess I missed some garbage.

    Anyway, Up Yours, amazon prime now. I ordered an obscure Firewire 400 to 800 cable from y'all because I need to get a co-worker's laptop fixed (installed a new SSD after his hard drive died) TONIGHT because he needs it for tomorrow so he can get a bunch of things done with his band this weekend. It was easier to have it 'delivered by 9pm' even if that meant staying up late tonight to finish the job. I would have gone to electronic shops looking for this obsolete thing but I figured since delivered was guaranteed by tonight that it would be no problem, I even paid for faster delivery.

    But then you email me after 6pm with a note saying "Sorry for the inconvenience, we will deliver your cable at a future date which we will inform you of later" and when I call give me zero explanation of why they did this then I want to mail you crapheads a box full of rocks. God damnit this is incredibly inconvenient!

    Fuck the FU thread, and other areas of this so-called 'community,' for gradually sucking the joy out of a silly (but fun) hobby about plastic toys.

    I think I need to pop in my Ultraman DVDs and plop myself down in front of the tube with my Bandai 'action figures' in hand and just let it all come full circle.

    And what about poor old Jamila? A tragic tale that probably only Japan could tell. :cry: Fare thee well, my beloved spacetronaut.

    I don't know exactly what it is, I can't really put my finger on it, but I don't feel anywhere near the same amount of joy or excitement about these toys as I did five years ago when I started really getting into them. I'd say it's a common thing with most collectors - you get super excited, buy a bunch of stuff and you end up with tubs of toys that you don't have room for. I think the current boom is another thing that's sucking enjoyment out of the scene.. for some people it's become competitive (just look at some of the posts and comments underneath hyped toys on instagram). There's a weird undercurrent atm... hard to feel the same excitement. Maybe it's just a natural thing - the five-year sofubi hump. Collecting these things can be exhausting.. checking certain sites daily, constantly being disappointed missing out on lotteries/that one secondhand listing of a longtime grail.. maybe time for a bit of a break from the scene.. but you know the second you step back, theres gonna be a release you've been chasing turning up for sale somewhere!

    Take a step back to just collect and enjoy, man. You've put a lot of effort into those shows and such, and folks don't appreciate the hard work, it's easier just to sit back and criticize. That may be burning you out.

    I've been collecting vinyl for 10 years now and honestly I love it just as much or more as I did when I started. It's a crazy hobby but after a while you find good quality people that help sustain you.

    Also, stop sweating Nags. Your sofubi appreciation will increase 100 fold. ;)

    Excitement comes and goes in waves. I probably sold off a quarter of my collection this year. Once I get my studio set up and figure out what I want to display I'll probably sell off another large chunk. Maybe just shift focus on getting things back in control.

    Been collecting Japanese vinyl for 10 years and toys in general for 20+, and I concur with Badbreath . . . (IMO) this feels like the suckiest period ever!

    Too many half arsed rip-offs of rip-offs of rip offs! Too many needy asshats chasing the exact same hot shit in a global pissing contest! Too much licensed crap! Too many wannabe's clogging up the factories! Too many hoops to jump for the 'opportunity' to overpay! Too many factories in flux! Too much craziness in the aftermarket! Too many half-baked shows with little wow factor! Too many behind-the-scenes shenanigans! Too much mediocrity! Too many talking the talk but not walking the walk! . . .

    Change is coming!

    Tell us how you really feel Andy. ;)

    I find just focusing on the lines that I enjoy, which by and large aren't very hyped in the scheme of things, filters out most of the bullshit.

    More of a fuck me than a fuck you.. Fuck me for being too nice. In September of last year, a buddy of mine hit someone's car and didn't wanna have to go through insurance to pay the guy, so he told him he'd give him cash for the damage. Problem with that was my buddy was broke (still is broke), so he reached out to me and asked if I could lend him the money. At the time, I had known him long enough for me to be comfortable lending him money, or so I thought. So I help him. He tells me he will try his best to pay me back as soon as possible, to which I reply "whenever you can", because I knew he was struggling with money and I wasn't going to put more pressure on him. So 2016 turns into 2017, and now at almost 2018 I still have not gotten my money back, yet throughout this time I see him taking vacations, buying random shit, spending on his girl, etc. 2 weeks ago was the first time I've asked for the money back since I let him borrow it. He reads my message and ignores it. So I send him another message a few days later and he says he completely forgot he still owed me money.. Now I know why friends should never let friends "borrow" money. I guess people's true colors start to show when dough is involved. I'm not really tripping about the money, more so at the fact that he would do that to me. I've been nice enough to keep everything to PMs up to this point, but if I don't get my money soon, I will be taking it public on FB and exposing him. So yeah, fuck me for being nice and fuck him too for taking advantage of that.

    My parents taught me to never expect money (or anything really) that you lend out to be repaid or returned. You are basically gifting it, or you say no.

    Sometimes it's easier to write the person off and remember not to fuck with them again.

    Fuck the dude that tried to fight me at work today.
    How bout you not try to let all your friends come dumpster dive, and then try to argue and talk a bunch of shit.
    I am at WORK, so threatening me is pretty much pointless.
    It's like... at what point Is it ok too tell some one too "get the fuck of my shipping dock." ?
    There's a reason why Dock workers have a reputation, so it might NOT be the best thing to fuck with dudes who lift heavy shit all day.
    It feels like it has taken 3 days for my hormones to level back out.
    Ive been trained to be calm and polite, muhfuckie be shitting on my chill.
    Stupid dumb bullshit, for just doing my job.

    Is it possible that I can 100% support what you say, but also just inherently disagree at the same time with every letter of it? My soul will just not abide any dislike for either, no matter how many points are stacked up in justification.

    I understand this. I've been a part of bands, record labels and art collectives, on and off for the past 20 years.
    The only times I've felt good about the art I was making was when I was away form all of it.
    you have you, and sometimes people can come together and do really incredible things.
    Not all people grow at the same pace and in order too collaborate, the collaborators need to be on the same page.
    Scenes fall apart. towns blow up and the burn out. so on and so forth.

    I moved to middle of no where, so I can work and make comics & toys undisturbed.

    Sad to see everything play out this way with the thread. Hopefully we can all get back to slinging fuck you's at people, things, and situations who deserve them most.

    Fuck you to mosquitoes in late October. You should all be dead by now. I want to enjoy the crisp autumn air and hoodie/flannel/sweater-weather, not worry about West Nile and Zika bites on my neck and ankles and wrists.
    Fuck, now my ankle bite itches.
    AND HOW THE HELL DO I HAVE A BITE ABOVE MY BELLYBUTTON, THIS MAKES NO SENSE

    I don't think Dorako was too happy with him, either. Let's face it, Mitch, some people just naturally gravitate towards the biggest dick at the party. It's important not to forget that it was the second Red King that caused all that trouble for our balloon-wearing friend! Our sampling of the family line suggests that the lot of them are assholes, and given that the peoples just lerve to root for the amoral underdogs, let's hope that we're not just around the corner from RK Legacy --- a weekly drama - in the popular anti-hero style - about a wayward yakuza organization called the Sons of the Red King, so-named because of their strange alliance with a certain mountain dwelling sect of ribbed giants.
