    • Be a moderator! & Reports Announcement   03/07/19

      We're aware that PULL needs more moderation and attention, so we're actively looking to expand our mod crew! If you're a regular user and intend to stay this way, then rest assured that we're working on improving PULL for you. In order to do this, we rely on user reports, so I'd like to take this opportunity to ask everyone to report posts you think break a rule, disrupt discussion or shouldn't be allowed.  There is absolutely no concern over getting too many reports - we get a handful of reports per week. More reports would be great because it helps us figure out how our users want the forum to be - leaving criticism in threads doesn't make it easy for mods to find your opinions. Furthermore, don't worry about being a "snitch" or too harsh - a report doesn't mean action will be taken, that's up to the mods. A report really only tells us to look at the comment and to gauge the community atmosphere. Often times, peer pressure or established community atmosphere will dictate the direction a thread takes, and criticizing certain posts can be uncomfortable or downright futile when the majority disagrees with your view. This leads to groupthink and degradation of thread quality because the loudest/most active users get their way. So reporting is a way to quickly and anonymously (to other users) give feedback to the moderators. If we don't get this feedback, we think everyone's happy and there's no need for change. So use this feature as much as you'd like to help shape PULL into a more constructive community again. If you'd like to be a moderator: Click here for the application form.

    yeah I agree here honestly. I realise this isn't totally relevant to Kenna's situation (because she doesn't seem to be aspiring as an actual photographer or anything, she just took an ~aesthetic~ snap) and I'm not excusing her for being shitty about stuff in general but come on, you don't shame a photographer for taking a picture of something even if it's a photo of something terrible... interesting photos and photography can be good even if the subject isn't "acceptable". In general, trying to be super woke by criticising people for taking pictures of stuff is dumb.
    I get that she's a big influencer and if she posts something like that it might make people see it and think it looks cool and start tying shit to trees themselves but she did the PSA saying "hey I took a pic cause it looked cool but I didn't actually put it there and like maybe don't actually do this". I think that was fine... people bitching about it more than necessary and provoking her into saying dumb shit about "locals" or whatever is just dragging it out for the sake of it and making a big deal out of Kenna just taking a dumb snapshot.

    doesn't this just mean that instead of one half-assed video we're gonna get two quarter-assed videos? 
    that or

    Eeehhhh, I mean I guess it's technically possible to hook a compact camera up to something with a filter on it for recording but I'm not sure how you would do that?? A g7x isn't going to be like a smartphone where you can just download an app for it...
    I would think it would be easier to run the filter over the footage after recording it if that's what she wants to do? But maybe there was a problem with the raw footage that she pulled off the Canon and her filters/after effects or whatever else she was using to make herself look her version of "acceptable" glitched?
    I dunno, I know a small amount about cameras and even less about applying filters to footage ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    I don't get how Kenna is having so much trouble with her camera settings? Usually the settings are different for video vs still so my personal guess would be that she's changing the settings as far as the stills are concerned but it uses a different mode for video and she needs to change the video mode settings not just the regular photography settings.
    It's a little off putting that a) she doesn't know her gear well enough (I guess this speaks to how little filming she does, lol), or she bought new gear recently enough that she hasn't learned how to use it (in which case what was wrong with her old setup that she - I assume - actually knew how to use?) and b) has she even tried looking for tutorials etc before just going "hey guys I tried messing with the settings and now I'm just hoping one of my followers will see this and be knowledgeable enough and can be bothered to just tell me how to do it"?
    I mean just searching on google or youtube for "canon g7x" brings up so many tutorials, tips and tricks, "here's how to set it up for vlogging" videos...

    Her diet is totally nuts, she's not really a vegetarian, she's a sugartarian
    It will probably fuck her up in the long run, but tbh I think she is still getting away with it to some degree for now. The problem will be when this continues and she doesn't eat properly into her mid- / late- twenties.
    Side note I wonder if her parents let her eat like shit when she was younger or if she actually ate properly.
    However, gotta say about her teeth, if you're lucky it won't fuck you up that badly. I've got through period of eating really badly (okay maybe not quite as much sugar as Kenna - or at least I would still eat vegetables and healthy stuff as well as snacking on junk, but still pretty bad) and not going to the dentist (like for years at a time while I was moving around a lot and not managing to register with doctors, dentists etc) and I have never had any cavities or anything. I only had to get some dental calculus cleaned off when I did manage to go again. So she could be getting away with it if her genetics/mouth chemistry just happens to be able to handle it.
    Also given I think she must've gone to the dentist regularly in California and if she cleans her teeth thoroughly, I don't think she'll have too many problems for a while, unless she's particularly prone to getting cavities in the first place.

    possibly provoked something from someone being stalkerish, or she got overwhelmed with OMG ARE YOU OKAY messages.

    I was fucking cackling at the dumbo post and then this is... Yeah. I mean it sounds like she just watched a documentary about stalkers or something but yeah i hope it's not vagueposting about something serious that happened to her because i wouldn't wish that on anyone.

    at this point she should just hire you (or this subforum as a team, lol) to script her videos for her.

    Another day, another Kenna r/thathappened-worthy revelation.
    i would say i'm pleasantly surprised we haven't been treated to anything more outlandish than deer-san getting a bite of ojisan's bag (or whatever the heck that was) but i'm hesitant cause anytime i give Kenna credit for something she immediately fucks it up...

    Yes, she also even had a follow-up Q&A video where there was a question like "are you STILL 'allergic to water'?" and Kenna was like "yup, makes me gassy, makes my stomach hurt" basically saying she didn't like it cause she had a bad reaction to drinking plain water (i mean whatever I still think it's bs) so unless she was taking a stupid Nemo joke waay too fucking far to the point where no one could reasonably be expected to link it back to Nemo, she honestly believed this and was saying it unironically on the regular.
     
    edit: went looking for evidence but either i do not have the google-fu to find the right reuploads or they just haven't been saved but I did find GuruGossip posts relating to videos that would have been current at the time so based on the dates of these posts she brought up this "water allergy" crap on two completely separare occaissions
    okay done that is the best i can do now can we stop saying it was a nemo joke and not worth repeating because she repeated it herself multiple times...

    I feel like she's - at most - gotten all dressed up in her "workout gear" and gone for a walk to take pictures outside, maybe "jogging" occaissionally and stopping regularly to stretch and make it look like she's totally #fitspo #fitnessgoals etc etc...

    side note I was just searching her old username on IG to see if the person who got it after her did anything with it (nope) and dang I was surprised that there are still so many Kenna fan pages and Kenna hate pages.
    but hey not gonna complain it's one of the few ways to find a lot of her deleted shit as well as just ridiculous stuff she has said in comments and videos

    Mm, more of her weird kid-like behaviour (remember when she was tagging herself in old vintage postages of literal toddlers, what a trip...)
    she even has the tantrums to go with it
    i wonder when she's gonna go full kinderwhore-revival.

    Tbh as much as that commenter seems to be pointing out stuff we say all the time I don't get where they are coming from with that, yes she should have made more effort to learn Japanese before she started her course and done more prep work on her own, but expecting someone to be fluent before moving to a country as a sweeping generalisation is a bit odd? And they do kind of seem to be implying that it's nuts for anyone to ever move to a different country without being fluent in the language first?
    again maybe it kind of makes sense to be directing that at Kenna given her known weeb status and complete lack of effort towards learning the language even while she was going through the visa process to move there and being priviledged enouhh that she could have spent a lot more time than she did learning the language - so yes in Kenna's case maybe it does come across more like she wants to learn the language in order to be in Japan rather than wanting to be in Japan to learn the language, but...
    i just find that whole exchange really off somehow
    like were they expecting her to be like: "omg yes, you're so right, I'm a huge weeb and I glorify Japan but I have no real motivation to do anything that I find remotely difficult and honestly I'm shocked I've got this far just doing the bare minimum of studying for my language course - which of course I'm only enrolled in for clout and not out of any real desire to make a career for myself in this country, and I will probably bitch out and run back to the US as soon as the course gets too hard or I realise I have to find a way to support myself after going to language school"???
    equally her defence totally came off awkward as hell, how hard would it be to say "oh well yeah maybe I should have done some more prep work but I felt a little lost trying to study by myself and thought that I would learn better by immersing myself in the language and culture and so I decided to make use of this student visa / language school system which I was lucky enough to be accepted into" or something?? But no, it's always this "none of your business" thing, even though she's a public person whose whole "career" (lol) hinges on people being invested in her life and following what she's doing...
