  • i caved in and spent a lot of money on the pink and blue vinyl of m83's "hurry up we're dreaming" and that half of my paycheck was so worth it, by the time i got to "splendor" i had basically ascended to a higher plane
    years ago i shared my art in a discord server and a forum and got told several times that it looked really bad and i got insecure and upset and stopped pursuing art entirely. every now and again i do a doodle. i shared some of these new doodles in a discord server and got met with so much love and praise. it feels nice. i wish i was involved in these positive communities when i was a sensitive, impressionable teenager. although those negative comments dont affect me as much now, its hard to undo the damage they did when i was 15

    one of the people that insulted my art when i was younger was in a voice synth server and theyre still very active in the voice synth community and every time i see them i get super salty LMAO

    beware of me and my grudge holding abilities! :lily_ani_lili:

    Obviously, I'm not opposed to concrit with art, but some people get so nasty when you post something and ask for advice. I used to see this sometimes on DeviantART - I wouldn't be surprised if some users either stopped posting art online or gave up on art entirely based on some of the comments I used to see.
    i finally got the lily bondage figure, shes been my most wanted lily fig since i was like 12 but i didnt want to put her on my xmas wishlist that my parents would see LOL
    she came in yesterday and shes soooo pretty and tall!
    i actually like ci v flower's design (more so than v4 flower, which im not crazy about) but it doesnt really feel like flower.

    I feel the same way: the design itself seems pretty good to me, I like it, but that isn’t really what I was expecting from Flower. I wonder if that’s reflecting any change on her voice at all.
    im really overworked and stressed so i begged the universe for a day off and i got it...but the monkeys paw is that i got it because im violently ill :kaito_lili: i feel like i have a frickin tapeworm
    i put up my anime figures today because i finally got a shelf for them! i gave up on the detolf because it appears it will never be in stock for as long as i live. i like the shelves i got just fine. :) most of my anime figures are broken and/or have pieces missing so thats a struggle...but my collection is looking good.
    i get heartburn so severely i feel like i have GERD

    idk does anyone else here ever have heartburn that lasts for over a week? my friends say theyve only had it for a day or two but we're also pretty young so maybe when you're older it lasts longer and god just hated me early. last time i had it it lasted for 2 weeks and didnt go away til i took prescribed medication, it came back and im on day 4 rn and have to go get my pills refilled this week. luckily i didnt eat an entire fucking pizza this time (i know im dumb) so it doesnt hurt as bad as it did the first time....but the heartburn diet is truly saddening. its like...oatmeal and unseasoned veggies and thats it :kaito_lili:
    I bought some merch from a smaller musician ive been into (snowblood) and she sent me 3 free goodies, a handwritten note and she signed the posters i bought!!!
    buying from small artists/businesses is always so rewarding. even when youre not getting free goodies lol, it's nice to know youre supporting someone who really appreciates it.
    i want to buy a physical synthesizer keyboard thing but i just spent so much money on records and a record player hhh. i need less expensive hobbies

    Cool. Are you just buying new vinyl releases? Or are you having fun going through second-hand records stores? Have you bought any coloured vinyl? Or how about liquid-filled vinyl? Or hologram vinyl? Or records with multiple and/or reverse grooves? In my opinion it's the trick records combined with thrift-store purchase that records a fun hobby.

    so far i have 2 vinyls :) one i bought from a smaller artist so it's just plain black but this was the first one i bought and its very colorful hehe
    ive been looking at thrift stores for vinyls cause i go to thrift stores about 2-3 times a week to fulfill my clothing addiction aksksk but so far i havent found any im interested in. it's mostly a lot of jazz :teto_lili:

    I approve of your decision to leave the jazz on the shelf. Although big band stuff like Duke Ellington and Glenn Miller is kinda fun.

    Oh well, maybe one of these days you'll find something entertaining like 70's disco or 50's calypso.
    i had the opportunity to work at the concession stands at the grammys but i passed it up because ive worked 13 days in a row and am TIRED...but how funny would it have been to be like "yeah i was at the grammys :cybersongman_lili:"
    i wonder if miku expo outside of japan is ever going to happen again...? no word on a miku expo happening this year (i dont think anyway? i havent been paying attention) and theyre closing the NA store. hmmm.

    I was concerned about the disappearance of overseas Miku concerts, too.

    On the other hand, as far as I've noticed, there were only a few items on the site at a time (typically just the merch for the current year's concert, and maybe the previous one), so it may make more sense just to distribute through HobbyStock/Amazon like was done for Miku Expo 2021 Online, especially since people are more likely to have had accounts there already. No more site hosting fees, and you can take advantage of infrastructure built by major players specifically for the purpose of selling/distributing physical goods. So it seems kind of alarming, but it seems like it might make a lot of sense.

    Yeah, I think closing the NA merch shop was more about costs rather than anything else. EU Expo merch was sold online through a a third party that handled other artist goods also, so that might be the future for NA merch sales also. Future Miku Expos around the world will undoubtedly take place again once things are more stable and they can be sure there isn't a risk of having to cancel a tour again.
    spring break is almost over and idk where it went because i havent done a single thing all week?? not productive or fun. i've just been sitting around 💀
    went to a marina concert last week, my first concert since i was in the 7th grade!!! it was super fun. wish i had taken photos cause i dressed up for it but i never got around to it haha
