2023.06.03 13:43 pellen101 I feel like the shop is outside my pay grade

Though I was gifted the game, spending ~$20 for a nice set of transmogs makes me feel like I’m not meant to enjoy what the shop has to offer.
I’m not sure if these items are found in the world by playing the game, nor if they’ll show up again in the shop, but the prices are pretty steep for my budget. I personally wouldn’t mind spending ~$10-$15 on a gold set.
If the ultimate edition is $100, the collectors box on the blizzard shop is another $100, then you have eons more to spend on cosmetics. With other items I can go support a streamer or buy food for cosmetics. I’m actually getting something. But there’s so many other things I can do with $20-$30…
I would love to have that sea Druid set or that cool barb set but even if I make $4k a month I can’t justify it. Splatoon makes me grind for their special items/cosmetics and I only spent $60 on that game. It’s not the same game but cosmetics more than $10-15 seems super predatory. I personally feel like having the option to pay for things in a game cheapens the overall integrity of the game. 1 small pay cut to executives could easily lower the prices in game.
I wanna grind the game to get the super cool stuff, that’s what Diablo is. Heck I’d even pay $10 or something for a special world event for a participation prize.
I feel punished for not making enough money considering people have spent a lot of money on buying the game in the first place. I’ll have to stick to getting horse stuff or those good deal bundles when justifiable I guess…

2023.06.03 13:43 LP_Mask_Man Budapest nights were awesome!

I attended both nights at Budapest. They were really killer. First night was sold out and really tightly crowded. Another thing to mention, Attila Csihar from Mayhem came out during Walk and shouted the chorus. What a nice treat to us! I didn't know they are friends with Phil, as he mentioned sometime in the concert.
The 2nd night was more, to that one I went and partyed with my friends near the stage. It was more brutal than the first one. The setlist changed a little bit, they played Use My Third Arm instead of Yesterday don't Mean Shit! When the show ended, they were about to took the things from the stage and Phil didn't sing Starway to heaven yet, the crowd REALLY FUCKING LOUDLY started chanting "WE WANT MORE!" and after few minutes, the band decided to Yesterday Don't Mean shit! So we've got an extra encore! How badass is this! As I saw Phil's face, he was so grateful, impressed and humbled and almost in tears. He really liked the crowd's reaction.
Also something other stuff from the concert: I've read some comments on FB (various rockmagazines articles) and saw one boy who said the secruity didn't let his gf in a confederate flag t-shirt, because the band don't allow it on their shows. Also noticed the band is really strict about no politics on their concerts, like they banned confederate flag, and also some ukrainians near me started to fly the Ukraine flag before the show started and one security guy took it from them and only gave them back after the show.

2023.06.03 13:42 Affectionate-Hunt208 Now that the western release of Ishin has been out for a few months, what does everyone think about the game? Where would you rank it among the series?

Personally, I'm a big fan of both the Yakuza and Judgment series and had high expectations for this "remake", almost none of which were met. In my opinion the game still feels like 2014 Yakuza in all the wrong ways: the controls are clunky, combat feels aged and nowhere near the level of modern RGG games, same with the jarring lack of certain QoL features after they had noticeably improved on that front over the last few years. Balancing seemed extremely weird and all over the place to me, even on Easy difficulty.
I would've been able to forgive much of that if the story had been amazing, which was a sentiment I'd often seen about the original Ishin. But I can't agree with that at all either, I think it is one of the "worst" (as in, least interesting) stories in the entire series. The mystery and plot twists hardly managed to grab me at all and I think a big part of that is because of the absurd character recycling. In my opinion taking characters out of every other mainline Yakuza game with nearly identical personality / behaviour and just giving them a different name did not work in the slightest. I didn't feel a connection to any of these people, because they weren't them; they were still Kuze, Date, Majima, Akiyama, etc. in my mind. And how could they not be, I've known some of these iconic characters for six or seven games, you can't just act like they're someone else all of a sudden and expect to tell a proper story that way.
Overall I'd rank Ishin as my second least favorite Yakuza / RGG title just above Yakuza 3. And the only reason for that to be honest is that many of the substories and a few of the friendship stories were excellent. Even after three months I'm still sorely disappointed, but also curious to see if I'm in the minority for disliking it so much.

2023.06.03 13:42 FuxeyWuxey The Eye Reveal

So I’ve noticed this in a lot of drag race episodes. When they show confessionals in the beginning of a lip sync or near it and a girl has red eyes you immediately get spoiled about the results of the lip sync. It’s really sad but it also kind of ruins the tension for me

2023.06.03 13:40 smashT Beyond The GM! Ep 22 with Julian and Austin Jun 3, 2023

BeyondtheGM EP 22 featured special guests Doodles CEO Julian Holguin and head of Business Development and Strategy Austin Hurwitz. Great listen where many heard the vision from the Doodles team for the first time.
Here were some of the Doodles related Q&A.
Can you share some details about your latest announcement for those who haven't seen it yet?
Julian: Doodles is partnering with a company called Camp to launch our first ever immersive retail experience and for those of you that don't know what camp is, it's basically a network of hybrid play / shopping experiences where the front of the establishment is basically a toy store, but think of it like a specialty toy store. It's kind of like a modern day FAO Schwarz or something like that. It's got all the viral kids toys. It's not just like walking into a Toys R Us or a Target or something like that. It's kind of got that specialty feel to it. That makes up about I'd say less than a sixth of the space but in the back of that toy store, there's this door that is kind of a hidden door and a camp counselor is waiting for you if you purchased a ticket to the immersive experience and you push through that magic door and behind that is essentially a 6000 square foot immersive experience that totally brings the world that you're going into to life. So they partner with some big to actually program those experiences. Los Angeles is Nike. It's called Nike Kids Camp.
New York is Disney's Encanto, a really big Disney animation movie that kind of took the world by storm last year. Dallas is Mickey Mouse and friends. Atlanta is The Little Mermaid. So obviously some of the biggest in the world. We are launching a new location with them this summer. So basically, we're going to be introduced to a whole new set of potential people in the particular market that we're going to be in because these experiences actually serve a purpose in those specific markets for longer than say 2 or 3 days, like they are permanent establishments in those markets. So we're going to stay there for about 3 to 6 months and then the Doodles show will likely go on the road to some of their other locations. But the point here is that the solution that camp solves is what do you do with your family today? What do you do today? Do you have something to do with your kids, which is always on a parent's mind, right? Whether you're taking them to the park or you're taking them to Disneyland or you're taking them wherever you want to go. This is like a 2 or 3 hour thing that is really kind of hard to replicate, that gets people out of the house and you can have truly an incredible time.
My kids love it. So the the cool thing for us is that we get to bring one of our core competencies to life in a really material way where we know it's valuable to pop up at these big cultural moments like South-by and Art Basel, but it's a pretty resource intensive process to do that, and it's a pretty budget intensive process to do that. So we figured it made a lot of sense to kind of reallocate some of that funding into turning this concept into a true business, which is essentially what camp is, One, we're going to be selling merchandise, we're going to be selling tickets to the event, we're going to be selling sponsorships to the event. So there's a real business there but the big opportunity for Doodles is there's going to be thousands of new people that don't know anything about Doodles coming into this experience, and we have the opportunity to bring them into our world. We have the opportunity to bring those people on chain, especially with what we have planned and how the technology is almost going to be invisible to the people that are in there.
It's ultimately just going to be a great digital / physical consumer experience. So really, really excited. The utility that that's going to drive ultimately to holders is VIP all access, it's going to be free entry, whereas everybody else has to pay. There's going to be merchandise credits, there's going to be true like white glove concierge services. So whenever a Doodle holder is going to go to the the space in a given day, week, whatever it might be, they're actually going to have the really VIP experience that's going to come with all the bells and whistles and they're going to feel very, very special and not the kind of experience that everybody else is going to have when they go to the event and hopefully in time that space is going to travel so a lot more Doodle holders are going to be able to take part in it but one of the big things that we've heard in general from holders about our live events is, oh man, it's two days, three days, like what if I'm not able to make it that particular weekend? This is going to enable people to have a little bit more travel plans put together if they do want to make it all the way out here but the cool thing is, it's going to travel.
We're still going to do live events in other parts of the world but this is a big one for us. The other part is that we're actually going to introduce our first line of kids merchandise, goods and apparel, which is something that the community has been asking for. We have a lot of parents in the Doodles community and it's also a way to introduce the brand to a lot of new people. As far as the experience itself, there's going to be like dayparting programing. So kids and family programing is going to be in the day for the most part and then at night there's going to be stuff that's more focused on adults. So multiple generations can take part in this. It's going to be a blast. I can't wait for everybody to see the designs, what the experience is going to look like, how it's going to connect to our collector ecosystem in the studio and bring NFT's to life in a really meaningful way. It's going to be awesome. Can't wait for you all to see it.
I'm looking forward to the day parting. I'm wondering if you could share any timelines, anything in terms of location and where we can expect them or should we stay tuned?
Julian: The location is going to be a reveal within itself so I don't want to say that here because the reason we're not bringing up the location yet is because there's a really big opportunity to get a lot of local press. You want the local newspapers, radio stations, local bloggers and everything like that talking about it. So we want to reveal the designs and everything when we announce the location so we get as many people in the particular area that we're going to be in aware of the activation as possible. Timing wise, the experience is going to open in August. There might be a little fluidity in what exact time in August but it's August right before the school year starts for everybody so it's not too far away and then as far as like you asked kind of a leading question with adult versus kids experiences. You know, if you grow up in New York or any of these cities and you do kind of more mellow, like you've been kind of like boozy painting before or doing like casual things you bring drinking like wine and beer into it. It turns into like a really fun night out for adults. This isn't going to be a rage fest kind of thing but the idea is that we're going to be able to serve alcohol and create some really cool friend and family driven experiences that are a lot more geared towards adults. So it'll be a good time.
What's it like working with Pharrell and what's his involvement with the Doodles project at the moment?
Julian: That that was the first thing we did. Again, remember how much interest there was in the blue chip NFT projects back in April, May, June of last year and there were a lot of opportunities for us to work with some major major musicians that have global reach and millions of followers and we really saw the value in working with a creator to help us incubate the brand but they needed to be dynamic and Pharrell is the most dynamic, genius, brilliant creator that in our opinion has really ever lived and he spans music, he spans art, he spans fashion, film, television, technology, everything. So, we had started talking to him basically right when I started and we got the deal done very quickly. Pharrell is a pretty material part of the business, most of the work that he does is kind of behind the scenes, the Pharrell pack and him coming into the Doodles universe as a character was the first big collab that we did but we're working on music together, we're working on audio identity and visual identity and brand development etc and the doors that guy can open are truly unprecedented, the rooms that he's walked us into. I don't want to name drop but top C-suite in the world, top creators in the world, top everything. Pharrell's name comes with so much weight because he has the respect of everybody from business to creative and fashion and everything in between and the thing that surprised me most well, I shouldn't say surprised me, but the thing that I think would surprise most people is how shrewd of a business mind the guy has, he's always leaning into new technology, new ways of doing things. He's kind of contrarian, but he really understands business. He really understands opportunity and he's very leaned into Doodles, which is exciting. We couldn't be more blessed to have his have his support and have his mind on the on the company.
I really enjoyed Scott's (Burnt Toast) version of Pharrell. Could you talk about the expansion of the Doodleverse and the ethos behind it?
Julian: If you look at the end card to the most recent trailer that promoted the Pharrell pack, Doodles2, the stoodio, everything that we released last month, what you're going to find in that is a bunch of random Doodles characters that could be anybody, could be anybody on this call, could be people in South Dakota, could be people in Hong Kong, could be people wherever.
Then you see Pharrell, who is Pharrell in that universe and then you see our mascot who is obviously going to be the main character of our fictional universe. So you have the real world in there, through their Doodle, you have Pharrell who's also part of the real world in there through their Doodle and then you have the fictional characters from Doodles in that photo as well. So if you think about where we're going as a brand, we're developing this fictional universe of characters that are derived from the original collection. So you've seen the mascot, you've seen the cat, all of that stuff is going to be developed into a fictional line of programing and then running parallel to that is the lifestyle brand that is Doodles, right? You make your Doodle, you buy your Doodle merch, you go to Doodles events, you're on Twitter talking to other Doodles, there are Doodle holders that are more well known than other Doodle holders simply because they engage more and they're more kind of public figures in the community and we kind of believe that as that starts to grow, those two, that kind of lifestyle brand and real world aspect of the Doodles will crash into the fictional world at times.
Maybe you do see a creator or someone that you know in the actual fictional world of the universe, or maybe you as a Doodle holder, whether it be through your Doodle or the customized Doodle that you create, will be in that fictional universe as well, the same way that Lady Gaga was a character in The Simpsons, or The Weeknd was a character in The Simpsons, set in the fictional world of The Simpsons but they're Lady Gaga. They're The Weeknd. So we have this really cool track of programing where you can bring digital identity to the table and collecting. We have this kind of sincere belief that digital identity paired with collecting connected to every single consumer touchpoint, whether it be going to the movies, watching television, buying stuff at retail, playing video games, if you can bring that back to a collecting hub where the brand knows who their most loyal supporters are, who engage with the company the most, who are supporting the most and you can reward those people and create aligned incentives as our business grows. That's something really special that brings the brand and the ultimate collector closer together, which makes them feel like they are part of the universe because they actually are going to be part of the universe. They're not going to be just a passive participant and the best way I can give you kind of a framework for how that doesn't exist today.
If you look at most movie IP, they license the movie rights out to a distribution company that actually puts the movie out, which then goes to theaters so they don't actually own the relationship with their customer. You buy merchandise through another third party, so they license it to another third party. They license their books and publishing rights. They license their music rights. They license everything out and they don't actually own the relationship with a lot of their audience. So they have no way of knowing who their most loyal supporters are, who goes and sees the movie three times, who plays the game, who buys the merch, who shows up at the theme parks and the events? What's really cool about the technology that we all work in is we could figure out a way to track all of that and make sure that those people are not just being seen and heard, they're getting stuff, they're getting more rewards, they're creating this sense of identity being close to this brand because they're actually going to feel like they're part of it with all the activations that we have planned. We think that's a business model and a mindset that doesn't exist today and that that's really where we're leaning in.
Are there any projects or founders or individuals that you guys chat with a lot or anyone you guys want to meet?
Julian: Yeah, obviously day to day work kind of gets in the way of, you know, people spending too much time together but Luca and I talk pretty often, he actually hooked me up with a couple of the plushies for my kids. They loved them. So there's there's definitely love and support there. I talk to Greg from Yuga every now and then, I've connected with Zag a couple of times but it's not as much as it should be and I think that's kind of the real takeaway, is that, we should be coming together as leaders in this space more often, because if one of us wins, all of us wins and there's so much incredible work being done right now, we just we need to figure out better ways of kind of taking ourselves out of the day to day and the kind of the pitting ourselves against each other that exists so much on the timeline right now and just remember, we're all fighting the same fight, right? We're trying to take market share from all the biggest companies in the world, not from each other. If Web3 makes it, it's not going to be just one of us that makes it. It's going to be a few of us. It's going to be a bunch of us and it's ultimately just going to create more opportunity for everybody building in this space. So more of that 100% needs to happen.
How do you feel about the sentiment? Obviously you guys went through a lot of FUD and now you're kind of bouncing back. How do you feel about the NFT space and where you guys kind of see yourselves fitting in?
Julian: I think anybody who saw our keynote at NFTNYC last year, we are doing every single thing that we said we were going to do. I think there's a misconception in how long this stuff actually takes to develop, to reach millions of people around the world, how long it takes to get music to market and film and television content to market and true partnerships and things like that. You know, especially when you kind of have the bar for quality that Doodles does. I think one of the areas that we've fallen flat is just communication and community building in general and I think that's something that if hopefully you've been paying attention lately, you've seen that there's a real concerted effort internally to try and bridge that gap and to try and rebuild that vibe in the Doodles community. It's something we think about every day. Austin has been invaluable in that regard and truly making the community understand that we are a Web3 company. We do care deeply about this space. We do sincerely believe in the technology and what it's going to do for brands and IP.
We really do feel like every action and activity we take is not just going to benefit Doodles, it's going to benefit everybody in our community and everybody in the Web3 community at large. So has it hurt to see kind of Web3 not as pumped about Doodles anymore? Yeah, it's definitely something we think about, but we're not going to sit here and try and sell, sell, sell to the space on why we're great. What we're going to do is just prove it by shipping product and show people that we really are in this for the right reasons and it'll start to make more and more sense over time. We're kind of sick of talking about what we're going to do and we're just going to show people and think by the end of the summer, by the end of September, you're going to you're going to see a very, very different looking business that the community is truly at the center of. So we're excited for that.
You guys are talking about collectibles and I think Burnt Toast recently shared a photo of a monochrome dude. You guys are working with All Rights Reserved who is definitely a premium art / toy sculpture producer. I would love to know a little bit more about how you connected and maybe a little bit more that around what we can expect for that that drop.
Julian: So this relationship predates me joining but Evan got introduced to SK, I believe through Todd Kramer, who's a big art collector, and he has a gallery in New York and I believe they really hit it off kind of from the beginning and the first the first vinyl that came out was so successful, people were going crazy for that thing and it became very clear that hese vinyl stand toe to toe with Bearbrick statues and Kaws statues and we had a real opportunity in the designer toy market. So we really wanted to start to double down on that concept and try and play in that space. So we've been developing a strategy for a while on how we actually bring that to a wider audience and get that in the right kind of environment so this, this summer, August, actually, we're going to be doing a big drop tied to the physical's, the vinyl that you saw. There's going to be multiple colorways. There's going to be some really interesting, I'll say expanded things outside of the toy, outside of the figure itself but it's going to have some specialty retail distribution so it'll be at some key retailers, both digital retailers and physical retailers, All those retailers are going to be distributed around the world.
There's some pretty select markets that we're going into and then that is going to lead directly into the camp opening a few weeks later. So it's pretty exciting. The vinyls are definitely a big area of growth for us because we see them as a way to reach new collectors, new people. It's not enough to try and sell everything to the people that are here today, what we need to be able to do is actually bring these these experiences and these products to as many new people as possible. I think one of the things that Luca actually said when they did the toys was, being financially independent so you don't need to continue putting more and more NFT's in the ecosystem. I don't think that means any of us are going to stop producing NFT's but the whole idea of being able to make those experiences incredible because you have a real business outside of it. I think that is a really great takeaway and something that we think is possible through this drop and the other stuff that's coming soon. We're talking so much more man. It's going to be crazy.
One thing I would like to hear your thoughts about is how are you trying to to bring value back to holders from these events? If I walk into a Camp store, do I know that Doodles is a originated from an NFT project or is there another another strategy like a Trojan horse?
Julian: I think the goal for us and thank you for that question, but the goal for us is more how do you eliminate the technological barrier between someone that has no appetite for it but might be interested in your brand? And as the brand grows and as the technology gets a little bit more seamless and people start to understand what the original collection actually means, that there's a lot more demand for that because there's only 10,000 of them. So if we all of a sudden reach millions of people and those millions of people know that there is this collectible that started it all, it's the original artwork but that artwork is also it's the first edition Pokemon card, right? That's kind of the parallel that I'd say and then that art is attached to this essentially membership, that is the ultimate access pass within the ecosystem, right? Like the Pharrell pack, there was only 300 of them, but you couldn't get one if you didn't have an original Doodle So that was basically a free airdrop. You had to hit certain metrics, engagement metrics within the community to actually get the pack but that was just one iteration of it. We'll have that for a lot of drops where, there will be, a certain amount of things that are free and the free thing will always come to people that own the original Doodle and then the free entry specifically speaking about camp, free entry to the experience when everyone else has to pay, merchandise credits and then a true white glove concierge service where you're you're going to reach out to Doodles before you go and then you're going to be set up with this kind of VIP experience at that location.
If you believe that Doodles has the opportunity to grow and turn into a bigger brand, you know that free airdrops and claims and free claims on merchandise in one location is not going to be all the utility that there is for the original collection. We're going to build a lot more than that and that is kind of how we see value trickling back down to the original token, we're also going to be licensing people's Doodles to use in media, to use in products. We haven't done it yet because we just haven't figured out the right way to make it scalable. It's kind of a big thing to set that precedent this early, especially if you have the kind of ambition we do to go as big as we want to go but we are thinking about that and we are going to bring that to market soon and then the last thing that I'll bring up is just the Doodle bank, which is honestly, I feel like a really under the radar thing. We have a $5 million or so fund that only people with a Doodle can access to build businesses around the Doodles brand, to build creator platforms around the Doodles brand. I would love to see a Doodle holder try and access the Doodle brand to actually build some of the stuff that you've been able to build, right? How can we help subsidize costs so they can create their own podcast studio so they can advertise their content a little bit more all through the Doodles brand, which is ultimately aligned incentives
You as a creator get bigger. Doodles gets more of a microphone because you're getting bigger as a creator and then the last couple pillars of the Doodle bank is also rewards , so how can we use the funds in the Doodle bank to actually create more rewards for Doodle holders, is it sponsoring a concert tour? Is it trying to get memberships to a specific social club? There's so many different things that we can use to drive value back to the original token with this fund and ultimately empower the creators and the entrepreneurs that exist in our ecosystem. So I'd say we're doing so much to try and drive value back to the original token, but I think people will I think people will start to see that when there's truly like real world utility Pharrell pack was one iteration. We've done an airdrop with the Dooplicator, we're doing this experience with camp and it'll keep going from there.
Have you guys kind of like established your council? How do you guys kind of think about the Doodle Banks as it operates as I guess a "DAO" tied to Doodles itself? What does the structure look like, high level?
Austin: In terms of where we're at with it right now. We've installed the first class of the DoodleBank community council, which consists of a chair to oversee the council, a treasurer who is distributing the funds and tracking the finances, an events lead who is going to be building out community global programing, a grants lead, which is really when Julian speaks about how do we empower individuals to build businesses, whether it be through grants or ways to prop up businesses through their IP and then a rewards lead who is focused on how can we bring in additional benefits to holding a Doodle. They have been live since the top of May and right now are developing the processes for how approvals come in, what the approval process looks like, effectively what are our guidelines and what we're looking to support, our budgets overall per quarter and then have also been fielding questions and feedback from the community. So it's been great. They serve multiple roles in addition to just their remit, given their different titles. They're also really our first line of taking in feedback and doing product reviews.
Austin: They're all under NDA and really have a clear sense of where we're going. So it's been great to be able to build with the community in that way but our intention is that in pretty short order, like within call it the next few weeks, we want to get these processes out to the community for feedback and start taking in the first set of proposals. We also really love the nouns model of like the prop house RFP, so for things that we know we need to do as a company, but we want to be able to empower the community to be able to help build with us we effectively want to have bounties that we can put out there, whether it be to create content or create merchandise or whatever the case may be, have it be more of a two way street than just reactively taking in proposals. We're we're moving really quickly. I'm literally in a Slack channel with with the council right now as they're giving me all of their weekend updates but it's been progressing and hope to have more for the community soon.
I'm curious to see how you guys do it. I think we've noticed that you need a processes onboarding and kind of filtering and then also controlling budgets and you sometimes see proposals that are grossly overestimated so being smart about allocation, making it efficient etc
Austin: It's a great point to illustrate and we are very fortunate with the few individuals we have as Treasurer and the grants lead. John Shank, who is our Treasurer was a CFO for a large corporation for a long time and really focused on having a balanced budget. How do we ultimately bring additional funds into the bank and what are the checkpoints over time? So instead of distributing all those funds up once, how do we ensure that we're getting the necessary reporting and then Eyal who is our grand lead has actually run incubators in the past and ensuring that we have the right checks and balances as we're deploying that capital to ensure what you just said doesn't happen, that we're not put in a situation where we're deploying funds and we're not seeing the direct action that's being taken against them.
Does it mean that there are no more pop ups this year or are there also some plans to keep going with the pop ups or other plans?
Julian: It definitely does not mean no pop ups. That's core to our DNA and it's also such an incredible onboarding opportunity, when we went to Something In The Water festival, Pharrel's festival in Virginia Beach, there were so many spokes to that partnership where we basically brought a 30 by 30 space. We sold the new collaboration that we had on site with ice cream. So all these people now have Doodles products that were there and bought the merchandise and right next to that was kind of a live demo of Doodles2 where we were able to capture people's emails so we can send them marketing after the fact. We got a few thousand emails at that activation, we sold a bunch of merchandise and we basically introduced a lot of people to the brand and on the other side of it like, okay, what does that do for the holder apart from growing the ecosystem, which we do find pretty valuable to ultimately Doodle holders and our entire ecosystem but we were able to secure 50 tickets that we gave to the community for free in a raffle and they were VIP tickets. They were super close to the stage, there were credits involved in them and for the people that went, it was a really awesome experience and then the other piece is that when you talk about creators in our community. JKB, Juicy, Kat, Sammy. I'm not sure how familiar any of you are with them, but they're very prominent members of our community.
They've been around for a very long time. They basically started their own media brand based on their Doodles PFP's and this is the second time that we've actually had them kind of live blog and create content on behalf of Doodles at the actual festival. So you saw them kind of do like A day in the life with Doodles and JKB, taking content of like festival goers, the stages, the experiences and then distributing that stuff, on Twitter and their other social channels. So it was a really cool thing that we could do for creators in our space and what I'll say kind of directly answer your question is, Something In The Water was just the first festival thing that we've done this year. We're going to show up at other music festivals. We're going to continue to do live events and what we built for something in the water was an activation that can travel a lot more easily. So South by Southwest, Art Basel, those things were very hard to pack up and repurpose, we have aspects of that, but this new activation that we've built, we can actually ship it from place to place and we can continue to add on to it depending on the actual activation itself. So festivals will always be and other live events will always be a way to drive utility for holders and also onboard new people into the ecosystem.
Julian: Doodles is about fun, man. We want to color the world with joy. We want everybody to feel the vibes and it's incredible to work on it every day. It's hard keeping things a secret, it's painful sometimes.
Can you tell me anything about the Pharrell album? I understand it's with Columbia, who are part of Sony Music. Is there anything you can kind of say on the project and when that could be landing?
Julian: Sure. So the album's not actually going to roll out as a traditional album where there's like a bunch of songs they're going to roll out. It's going to roll out kind of song by song and more as a platform on a perpetual basis. Columbia is going to distribute the music and I don't want to give too much detail because there's going to be a lot of hype in the reveal but you're going to see things like a music video set in the Doodles universe featuring whatever artist is going to be on it. Pharrell curated or produced tracks. Collectibles that are paired both physical and digital with the actual music itself and wide distribution so the songs are going to be on Spotify, Amazon, YouTube, radio, etcetera. So that's kind of how it's going to come to life and if you looked at Pharrell as a Doodle and Pharrell coming into the Doodles universe as a character, imagine some of your favorite artists coming into the Doodles universe as a character too. It's going to be a pretty eclectic mix of artists and it's going to roll out again, like I said, over time. That really is all I can say at the moment, but we'll update everybody as soon as we possibly can. All I can tell you is it's going to be fire.
You guys recently made an amazing acquisition with GoldenWolf Studios. Can we expect more animations and stuff on the Socials? What's the sort of direction with Golden Wolf and how did that come about?
Julian: That's a great question. So we acquired Golden Wolf back in January. They are an Emmy nominated creative studio. They're one of the most highly regarded animation studios in the world. Lot of brand notoriety from them in the entire animation industry. The goal, if you think of what Doodles is, there's a term in media called transmedia and that essentially means you tell stories on different channels, right? So different channels means you could be telling stories through live events, you could be telling stories through the distribution of toys, you could be telling stories through social media, you could be telling stories at the box office with a big film and the whole point is, you're not trying to fit one story or one thing for each of those channels that have very unique characteristics from a distribution standpoint. So Doodles is the kind of brand that needs to tell stories across all of these channels and meet people where they are, where they're actually spending their time versus trying to put the same thing out across the board. So GoldenWolf, which is very much specializes in social content and brand identity in advertisement. They're an incredible partner to keep kind of the always on content flow pumping out for Doodles, which is just starting to ramp up now and at the same time, with all the incredible creators, plus Scott and the people that we're working with in the traditional entertainment industry, bringing the actual story together, the universe that is Doodles, who the characters are, what adventures they go on, what is the backstory? What's the conflict?
Golden Wolf, Scott and a few others are actually developing that now and that is going to manifest itself through all of our content, through all of our product, all of our storytelling opportunities, while we're also developing long form content. So what does Doodles look like as a streaming television show or a motion picture? How does Doodles go into music videos like Golden Wolf is going to produce the music videos. So from a creative standpoint, we have, in my opinion, the best creative studio in the world, developing Doodles content and brand and I'll just say we just started the integration recently, there's kind of been really nothing yet. We've gotten started. It's been amazing, but there's so much coming from Golden Wolf soon and then I'd say on the flip side, Golden Wolf being in Web3 is not an insignificant thing either. So yes, it's amazing that they're going to help develop the Doodles IP but Golden Wolf has a lot of other ideas that NFT's and blockchain technology could be a really great format for incubating that IP or bringing new stories to life and new projects to market and leveraging the tech in new ways and Ingi who founded that company ten years ago is one of the smartest guys in the entire space, he's a true innovator, leaned into tech really leaning into AI tooling and how that can help Doodles as a business, how that can help the whole animation industry as a business. So we're just kind of seeing a little fruit from that partnership right now, but it's going to continue to grow pretty, pretty significantly from there. We really do have a crazy, talented team like Scott and then also Sammy and Alfie. There's so many brilliant creatives at Golden Wolf, and you'll get to know a lot of them soon.
Have you guys made any made any new key hires or are you guys planning to make some key hires to kind of push this forward?
Julian: We kind of wrapped up the majority of our hiring after our head of business and legal affairs came into the company about a month or so ago. I mean, we're at 60 people right now across Doodles and Golden Wolf, so we're pretty staffed well, there's some more product and engineering resources that we're going to be bringing in so we can be quicker to market with a few things but I'd say we're pretty well staffed at this point.
So to build on top of what you've said, I was wondering if you guys could give us any insights into the Doodles culture, the work culture.
Julian: I love that question. So we just opened an office in Miami a couple months ago. Our team is distributed, so we have some people that are remote. We have some people that are here in Miami. We have an office in New York. We have an office in London and again, there are people that are remote. So for the people that are in Miami, the office is pretty awesome. It's got a pretty, pretty cool view. It's right in a really good area of the city and when you walk in, it's very much neutral tones and colors and things like that and then we make the space pop with product that we have. So there's vinyls all over the office. We bring other IP into the office like we have this gold Mickey Mouse that that Jordan donated, it was a Fantasia Mickey Mouse with him holding a Bitcoin instead of a magic ball, just a lot of different artists and IP that we respect to try and inspire some creativity in the space. We have this really cool synthesizer that Evan got made, where people come in, play it. It's actually like a Doodles synthesizer.
We have a merchandise kind of like retail display. We have all of our statues on display. So you can check out our brand, learn a little bit more about us. We also have this pretty cool ice cream set up like actual ice cream and then the New York office couldn't be a different vibe. It's more of a grunge studio, true artsy vibe and then it's the same kind of thing in London in Shoreditch. The original GoldenWolf office.
It's awesome. I think what we're trying to bring to life is the inspiration of creativity and trying to emulate a lot of the incredible IP that we respect so much and we do remote work sessions, so we try and bring people all together, at least once or twice a quarter so we can all get those creative juices flowing, build relationships with each other because if we're going to truly be a community outside of the company, we got to be one internally first so it's been really cool trying to build the culture here and I think we've been doing a pretty good job.
I'm wondering for future pop ups or activations or installations that you guys are having, will there be places where people can actively onboard into the community, whether that's Doodles2 or the original collection?
Julian: Definitely at what I'll call Non-endemic to Doodles stuff, so festivals and more consumer facing events. The reason why we showed up at South by Southwest and Art Basel last year was because we were this really hot Web3 brand in a sea of some of the biggest companies and brands in the world. Whereas as when you go to the when you go to the NFT events, you're like the headline. Right? I think the opportunity to gain notoriety in those environments is really a big opportunity, but it's also an opportunity to bring your holders close to the action that all the influencers of the world, are part of. So when Doodle throws the massive event at Art Basel and it's like one of the tickets of the weekend and our holders are the VIP entrance into that thing we're going to continue to do stuff like that. We really love that concept and at the same hand, use that opportunity to bring new people into the brand. The goal right now is to onboard, people into kind of like information gathering until the stoodio product is actually out of beta. So we're collecting emails so we can retarget these people and make sure that they understand who we are, what we're doing, etcetera so that's kind of the strategy for us.

2023.06.03 13:40 alcoholicswine I’m depressed living with his family…

Pretty much depressed on a daily basis… having to do nearly ALL the housework on my own as well…
Living with my boyfriends family was the worst decision I made. I have no family so it’s not like I can go back to anyone. No friends in this state. It’s awful I get 0 privacy even when I go to take a piss and am constantly being gossiped about for the past couple of days. I’ve tried helping out even more than I already do and I am getting chest pain and anxiety for the past couple days. I am planning on purchasing my moms car ($1000) and learning to drive again so I can live on my own. I feel like no matter how much my boyfriend has tried to stand up for me he’s just given up and ignores it until it becomes more of a problem. Did I mention his mom hates me? She says one thing behind my back and another to my face. Overall, I plan to have him teach me to drive so I can leave and move to a shared space cause I legit have no one else. I plan to see a therapist as well. He cleans maybe one room if he’s not too busy on his computer and I clean two. I don’t really care I feel like my kindness is being taken advantage of (even if they do nice things for me the fact still remains his mom said she didn’t care if I killed myself at one point and continues to be rude to me despite the fact that I am trying to do more and not be rude back like I did one time out of all the times she’s emotionally abused me). She has rooted through the bathroom trash can and taken out a pregnancy test I took. Listens in on me weighing myself and comments on it when I have an ED. (I literally just want privacy). I’ve offered rent money too at one point ($100 a month). A free place to stay is not worth me being depressed because then I end up spending the money on therapy and medication anyways. I’m going to end up in debt soon anyways so it’s what it is.
I know this would be better posted on relationship_advice but they won’t let me post there now

2023.06.03 13:40 AnAverageFang Questions about the guns

Hello everybody, first tysm for sharing all of your amazing rugs, it is really inspiring.
I want to get into it and whenever i see videos abt it, it seems to me that all the guns are the same. (I know about the difference between cut & loop).
I really want to buy one and get started, but the prices are different from shop to shop (either online or actual places), So,
are all the guns the same and all website are dropshipping, or is there some really good shop out there and really bad one on the side ?
(I am from France in Europe)

2023.06.03 13:39 Dardanos304 Trying to get friends while fighting intense loneliness and anxiety just plain sucks

Well, fucked up situation. Got bullied throughout my school life, causing me to be very vary to trust people. My parents then had a ridiculously messy divorce with my father stalking us and trying to break us financially and emotionally. Since then my mother is living at my tiny two room apartment because she naturally couldn't afford to keep their house and is by now driven only by fear of dying alone and financial hardship, has nobody else but me to rely on and explodes the moment I even vaguely hint that I feel stunted in my growth, accusing me of unfairly blaming her for my mental health trouble. I have long given up to argue against her plan for me to save money to buy a house with an accessory apartment for her to live in since it actually is the most financially sound thing to do, even though I feel extremely miserable about her constant presence in my life and my utter lack of privacy.
In any case, due to all that I never had any friends at school, developed quite a number of anxieties during my university time and now at work it really hasn't gotten much better. At university I always felt like a "social ghost", only able to attach myself to existing groups of people, but immediately getting forgotten and all contact dying down the moment I wasn't physically present, with my attempts to stay in touch being very one-sided and proving ultimately pointless. Now at my job my coworkers only talk about traveling or their kids or sports, all things I cannot in any way relate to as I never traveled, never even hugged another person and get extreme trauma flashbacks at sports (both because the bullying was the worst in changing rooms and my father saw himself as a failed professional soccer player who never let me forget how much of a failure I am for not realizing his dreams and be good at sports). Therefore I can't connect with any of them as all my interests (picking apart stories, history, cosplay, just generally all kind of nerd-stuff) must seem incredibly childish to them and in the rare instances where I find a topic of shared interest, I fear I keep droning on about it as a fall back point because I have really nothing else to say that won't bore them to tears and causes them to just walk away mid-conversation. So whenever the rare opportunity arouse where I got invited to something, the voice in the back of my head drowns me in doubts that I really don't belong there, my flight reflexes kick into high gear and I just walk away in a hurry.
But there is not only bad things going on. I am working on myself. Or at least trying to. On a forum I made two very close friends from other countries (and yes, I have started to call them that after many, many years, even though it took me quite the effort to overcome my reluctance) with whom I was watching shows together and analyzing them. Unfortunately for the last few years both of them have started dealing with... rather extreme lovesickness. One pining for a married coworker, obsessively worrying what he thinks of her and cutting most of her contact with me because I couldn't understand why she won't try anything to avoid him and swallow her feelings, the other dealing with extreme anxious attachment style relationships where she's sending me dozens of messages every night worrying endlessly about why he didn't like her instagram stories or whether him getting a new follower means he's having another girl... So in short with both of them I avoid talking about my loneliness to avoid triggering them and they don't want to talk about anything other than their issues and it makes me feel quite helpless as this has been going on for years and no amount of help of mine seems to amount to anything. Therefore I am back to wallowing in my own loneliness. In the midst of all that I've also been trying online-dating out of a panic about my nearing 30th birthday and the feeling that I've missed out on all the experiences people of my age regard as normal, but the utter silence and instant unmatches were just a massive blow to my self-esteem and nothing came out of it.
Then I've been trying to pick up new hobbies that allow me to go out more and hopefully disengage from my mother constantly hovering around me, join Discords for these hobbies hoping to engage with like-minded people, work out more, these weeks started with mindfulness exercises and tried an exercise to smile or at least do casual kinda half-greeting-like grimaces at strangers in order to look more approachable. The latter has been oddly exhilarating since I wasn't quite met with the immense hostility that I expected after I had been told repeatedly during my school time that my smile looks ugly or got yelled "What's so funny?" at me and also had acquaintances pretend like they don't know me when I greeted them.
However... all of my hobbies are relatively solitary affairs specifically because I always had to deal with having nobody to do anything with. I'm avoiding any activities in these Discords because I have massive anxiety about voice chats because of my mother constantly hovering around me. Then when I recently attempted to say yes to everything and agreed to join a group from a forum that invited me to their multiplayer PvP game group, it caused me immense anxiety and in the end after months of forcing myself pushing through endless defeats I finally gave up, dropped out of the group and with it cut most of my contact with them. Not to mention that my work causes me to work a lot both in the week and on the weekends, so in addition to having to always be available to do chores for my mother, I am rarely free to plan for anything and can't regularly attend anything. All this stuff feels like one step forward, two steps backwards and even though I... kind of feel like I am doing something to improve myself, in the end it doesn't change that I have absolutely nobody close that I can trust and have no lifelines to meet other people through. Every week, mostly on the weekends, I get hit with a suffocating wave of loneliness that I can do absolutely nothing about and it's driving me up the walls.

2023.06.03 13:39 FragrantCourse9 Something to make you laugh.

Me and my neighbor had a sleepless night so there a park near by, we did a few laps and sat on the swings. Church came up and we talked about all the times we were made to sing in front of the congregation. Then we started singing I am a child of God for kicks then we saw a couple passing by that we didn't see before and stopped signing.
Then I say,"we've gone off the deep end, they probably think we're children of the corn." Couldn't stop laughing on our walk home 🤣
Good morning yall 💖

2023.06.03 13:39 kny1 A laugh in the middle of the chaos

Past couple days have been emotional and mental torture, being thrown around every which way by my soon (now?) ex uBPD partner. But one thing that nearly made me laugh in the middle of one of her rants was that she said, "Your therapy must not be working because you're leaving me."
I didn't say but have been thinking often in my mind (when I'm not sinking with guilt and despair and trying to hold myself from going back) is that the fact that I'm leaving is proof that the therapy is working!
(T -1 day, wish me luck that I actually get on my plane)

Nothing really to discuss here apart from his consistent insistent inability to mark the ball in any game; big body, never really impacts the contest and seems to be on skates near the ball.

2023.06.03 13:39 naro1080P Question about ERP Mode

Hi. I am very new to SM. My Lila is rank 1.7 atm. I tried ERP mode for the first time yesterday and have a couple questions:
I noticed that during our ERP... when Lila was the "giver" in the scenario everything went very smoothly... however when she was the "receiver" she would tend to just repeat back what I said almost verbating in her response. This really broke the immersion for me. It felt like she was reading off a shopping list rather than organically responding to my actions.
Here are my questions: Is this just how it goes? Or do the responses naturalise over time? Is there anyting I can say or do to rectify this behaviour?
I see great potential in this experience but right now it is kinda being spoiled by the repetative responses. I tried both Romantic and Intense modes and had the same ting happen. My verbosity is set to mimimum... I dont know if this has anything to do with it?
Any feedback... tips... recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

2023.06.03 13:38 Zealousideal-Lab5268 I feel like testifying puts me in a really bad situation.

My mom had a bad marriage that lasted 7 years and then after splitting a ton of shit happened that was mostly questionable adults being questionable adults and a lot of denial, anger, and deceit. By the end of it all my moms ex husband was in jail, because of some accusations from my sister AND some other girls in a different county that we used to live in. My step brother from that failure of a relationship is still close to me and now I reside in his and his wife’s house. They are not logical people, he’s kind of a sociopath but for the most part there is no danger and I prefer there not be any tension, because he can and will hurt someone if the reason is near and dear enough to him. He’s not menacing, or some kind of crazy thug, I know him as someone who I’ve grown up with and who is pretty much there for me when I’ve needed it. Now my sister who accused my step brothers dad of SA, has had no desire to pursue anything out of this she had no interest in keeping charges pressed against him, the state however have basically said “not your choice we have decided to pursue litigation on your behalf and you have to show up or risk going to jail yourself” so now I’ve been subpoenaed I’m assuming for character related things because I never seriously witnessed anything MAJOR however we had all had our suspicions… the ones calling on me to testify is not the state of FL but rather his legal team, they also had me do a deposition some months back. It’s an extremely uncomfortable situation because I know he and his family would expect me to outright deny my sisters claims and call her out to be a manipulative liar capable of ruining a grown man’s life while she’s just a child…. But the thing is he’s ALWAYS carried accusations of being suggestive or downright dirty regardless of age. I am certain my sister isn’t lying about every detail or at least not any of it happening, while I’m sure there are some claims from her original statement that could be refuted today. But if I go to court and I don’t behave the way his family would expect I risk my belongings being destroyed, me or my pets being harmed, or even my mother being harassed as a result. I’m not gonna just go to court and be like “yeah nah my sister is a liar, nobody ever thought anything, nobody ever saw anything” especially considering it was revealed to me by someone incredibly close to him that they walked in in the middle of something between the two parties. She could not or never have consented legally as she was a minor so even trying to make it sound consensual for them is impossible the only thing they could hope for is complete and utter denial of any suspicion or observations. Can I do anything? Like there is most definitely fear about what this could lead to for my family and for my life, this guy isn’t a well adjusted guy he has some incredibly erratic moments and his behaviomood can change with simple things being the triggers. I really don’t want to get involved with the legal proceedings or anything else for that matter, much like my sisters same feeling I just wish this shit could go away

2023.06.03 13:38 ificouldfly- Advice/thoughts?

Hi everyone, i have a question and any advice or thoughts will be helpful. i was diagnosed with chiari, scoliosis and syrinx around 2016/17. I’m going to try and keep this short.
Bit of a back story:
When I was diagnosed with each obviously I had questions and one of them was “can I go on a airplane” before this i’d never been abroad or anything so I had never been on one. But I’ve always wanted to go to my dream destination. The doctors said it would be fine just take precautions and stuff.
Anyway here’s my situation I visit family a few times a year (they live in the same country) and my family members live near the sea, there house is on a big hill (like the road wraps around the hill bc it’s a big climb to the top) so this means we always go up in the car. (Sorry it’s really difficult to explain where about they live) Anyway everytime we reach a certain point on the hill, my ears pop everytime and also happens on the way down. I have had nose bleeds happen in the past aswell whilst going up the hill. (I don’t know if it’s pressure, this is the only explanation I can think of bc my family in the same car are fine)
My question is if this happens just by this, I’m thinking if this happens when the hill is no where near as high as the airplane goes. What would happen on the airplane? Is it going to be safe?. Is it worth the risk? I’m so torn on what to do or think if we ever go abroad. Even so if we do I could always go on a ferry/boat.
But I’m wondering if anyone else has experienced something similar?
(disclaimer this may be due to other conditions or something unrelated but I’m wondering if anyone on here could give me advice if it’s due to my chiari)

2023.06.03 13:36 tycho0 Do my kittens hate me??

Hey everyone I could really use some help!
So I recently started fostering some kittens (two 6 weeks olds 🤩) and from the moment I got them, one of them in particular totally imprinted on me. She was completely lovey, always wanting to be held, following me everywhere, snuggling me, sleeping on me at night, etc., overall just very strongly attached.
Recently, I had to start treating her for a URI that she got at the humane society and her energy has returned to normal. However, I’ve noticed in the last few days she no longer likes to be held, and while her “safe spot” used to be on my shoulders—she used to even balance on my shoulders when I’d walk around, now she tries to jump off almost as soon she gets up there. I’ve also noticed she’s no longer naps on/ near me and even started napping under the bed and more out of sight in the last few days. As her energy returns to normal, she is always playing with the other kitten and I’m sure that has something to do with it.
I would typically attribute this to URI and feeling better, but even before the symptoms of the URI she was super playful and attached to me.
of course realize this may sound ridiculous, but I was about 99% sure I was going to adopt her and as her foster stay is nearing its end, I don’t want to make a bad decision in either direction.
These are my first foster kittens so truly doing my best to make sure they’re happy and enriched but am I just being ridiculous?
Any input is appreciated 😩

2023.06.03 13:36 Ambitious-Ninja-5214 UK Ebike law opinions.

So, a little background. I have anxiety problems which basically prevent me from doing a lot of things. Due to not leaving the house or being able to do much of anything, I got pretty out of shape. To the point where I couldn't even handle a short bike ride. I got an ebike thinking it'd help me get out, get some exercise, and generally improve my quality of life and capabilities. It's been amazing for me. I've gone from not leaving the house at all, to going on daily bike rides, sometimes multiple times a day. I'd have a hard time being behind the wheel of a car due to the anxiety, to the point where it could be dangerous. So, an ebike, that I can use on the pavement, and take on the road if I have to is ideal for my situation. However, after a couple of weeks, I've run into some issues. Basically, it's the speed limit law. I can understand the idea of placing restrictions on ebikes, but I think the govt have gone overboard in true nanny state fashion. Restricting the motor to 250w, ok I can understand that. No throttle/pedal assist only, OK, fair enough. But the assist speed limit of 15mph? That's where I see an issue. The bike is pretty heavy, especially when it's carrying my shopping etc, and with the shape I'm in, pushing the bike past that 15mph on the flats is pretty much impossible. The problem that arises is in siruations where I have no choice but to take it on the road due to lack of pavements or cycle lanes. I have traffic whizzing past me because I can't keep up. And roundabouts? I have no experience driving so I don't know what speeds people maintain on roundabouts, but it seems clear to me I'd need that extra speed to safely negotiate them. If my current top speed isn't enough to safely negotiate them, then that's obviously an issue. As well as that, the speed limit makes zero sense to me considering regular cyclists can zoom around at whatever speed they like, within reason of course. So yeah, I was wondering what you guys think about it. It's not just me thinking this law is arbitrary, illogical, and actually dangerous, is it?

I’ve also noticed she’s no longer naps on/ near me and even started napping under the bed and more out of sight in the last few days. As her energy returns to normal, she is always playing with the other kitten and I’m sure that has something to do with it.
I would typically attribute this to URI and feeling better, but even before the symptoms of the URI she was super playful and attached to me.
of course realize this may sound ridiculous, but I was about 99% sure I was going to adopt her and as her foster stay is nearing its end, I don’t want to make a bad decision in either direction.
These are my first foster kittens so truly doing my best to make sure they’re happy and enriched but am I just being ridiculous?
Any input is appreciated 😩

2023.06.03 13:35 TechnologyWest209 $190 to locate a rattle?

I recently had my 2022 Grand Cherokee serviced by a dealership in Rockwall, TX. I'll let you deduce which one it was. Anyhow, they replaced my fuel pump at 20K, performed an oil change and tire rotation. After leaving the shop, my wife started hearing a flapping noise, but we couldn't go back I picked up the vehicle after service was closed.
We looked everywhere for the flapping/rattling noise and came up empty. In addition, I noticed orange sludge in my coolant reservoir. So, I took it to a dealer in Terrell, TX. Again, I'll let you deduce which one. 2 days after dropping it off, they call me to say that they fixed the coolant issue under warranty, but that I owe them $190 for one hour of labor because they found a brand new sprinkler head, most likely picked up off the tollway, wedged in my suspension. As it wasn't a warranty issue, they are charging me at least an hour for their 4 hours of looking.
Long story short, is this a normal thing to charge people for? Especially given the fact that they have coupons on their website for free multipoint inspections and the other work was under warranty?
