Look, guys, I just want you to know that if you were forced to read "Faust" by van Goethe in college, please drop everything right now and read "The Tragical History of Doctor Faustus" by Christopher Marlowe because it is far superior in every way. If you like Shakespeare, you'll like Marlowe. Shakespeare loved his work and took inspiration from him and that should tell you something.

  • I want to try my hand at repainting and just otherwise revitalizing thrift store dolls and when I looked up these dolls I got today (for a total of $5) I found out that one was a Liv Doll worth about 60 bucks brand new and the other was a Believix Musa doll...Literally worth hundreds of dollars new. :lol: Gah! She is only 5 years old and a pretty hefty collector's item. Perhaps I can make her pretty enough to re-sell her for even a fraction of that. But how cool is that? First time I check out the dolls at the thrift store, I find 2 rare dolls!

      The Liv Doll is Katie, I believe. She has green eyes and her painted on hair is dark brown. She was wig-less and naked, poor thing. Hahah! Their wigs cost a lot, so I am just going to try my hand and making her one myself. Surely this will go very smoothly. :lol: Luckily, they fit pretty well in Barbie clothing, so it shouldn't be hard to find her something to wear (I still su.ck too much at sewing to make her clothing).

      Musa was in pretty decent condition for coming from a thrift store. She had some markings, but they came off easily. Her hair just needed a good brushing (I might have to condition it, but I don't think a re-root will be necessary), she came with the correct pants, but her shirt is from another doll. I didn't see her wings in the box, so I guess she didn't come to the store with them. :(

      Hello :)
      That is very exciting! It would have been a happy surprise when you found out how much they are worth :)
  • The people you play with can really significantly make or break an online game experience. Yeesh that last group was a doozy. PSA: If you're playing a game - don't take it so seriously. Have fun. Not everything has to be an ego contest. Acting that way does nothing but ruin the fun for others.

      Yup, been experiencing this a lot in Friday the 13th!

      I yeah, my worst experience was a party in Soul & Blade. They kept Pk-ing me just to get pvp xp. I just played along with it since I was trapped, unable to log out or teleport elsewhere while being ganked.
      They didn't like me since I came off as too "noob"?

      >Funny you mention Friday the 13th as the group that is the subject of this was in that game. It's a really fun game, but god. Usually it happens when people trash on the Jason. I play with a group of my friends, but not enough to fill a lobby. Some of us just don't like playing Jason. We prefer the role of counselor. So our Jason skills aren't very high since 99% of the time we're playing counselors. When we do get chosen as Jason, we aren't the best, admittedly. But we still try to have fun with it being silly. I once had a game where almost everyone got away in the car, but they ran over their friend and I joked with everyone in the lobby about how I saw that person die and turned over a new leaf. Haha! And it was fun. It was enjoyable. Because who cared if I su.ck at Jason. The point is, I had fun. The group had fun. It was fun.

      But then you get a group where if you are bad at Jason, they just trash you the entire time over voice chat until all ability to enjoy the game is gone. And there is nothing worse than trying to have fun with my friends and hearing one get quiet because they were genuinely hurt by what was said. It just plum. I really, really don't know how anyone can be that way to others. In games or in real life.

      >God people in certain MMOs are painful. I was an above average WoW player. Held the top speed for one of the mythic+ dungeons for awhile on my realm with my group and I never once turned any player away for being new to the game. In fact, I encourage other shadow priests to message me if they need help. Just before I stopped playing (my usual WoW break), I helped a fellow shadow priest go from lagging behind terrible in his raid damage to being number 2 on the damage meters. I don't think anyone has any right to be rude to others in video games based on experience. Everyone starts somewhere and literally no one plays a game on day one and knows exactly what they're doing. No one. People who will try to ruin your experience are just projecting their inner turmoil onto you. If their lives are plum, they will do anything to make your life plum. Regrettably, this is something that often succeeds and I can't stand it. :/

  • Some day I hope achieving an opener so short and yet so detailed as this is not just an implausible dream:

    "In heavenly matters of theology;
    Til swoln with cunning, of a self-conceit,
    His waxen wings did mount above his reach,
    And, melting, heavens conspired his overthrow;
    For, falling to a devilish exercise,
    And glutted now with learning's golden gifts,
    He surfeits upon cursed necromancy;
    Nothing so sweet as magic is to him,
    Which he prefers before his chiefest beliefs:
    And this is the man that in his study sits."

  • So I quoted a documentary for my 7th year anniversary on these forums(this is the greatest video you will ever see), for my 8 year I have found a quote that, if any of you know me on a personal level, can only be described as literally the greatest thing I ever could have found for this.

    *ahem*
