im finishing this debate because its stupid and derailing, not every goddamn food needs ketchup, it has its place but it doesnt have to be on everything (including hamburger steak which is commonly served wafu style daikon oroshi) and if you're one of those people who has to put ketchup on everything for it to taste good then i feel very very sorry for you, if you want to defend sharla some more she even pokes fun at herself that its 'such a canadian' thing to do but im not derailing this any further and i've said my piece.
not really, you dont go to japan and expect every place to have ketchup and in most restaurants you respect what they have on the menu (in japan i know its usually a huge no to ask for alterations on a dish), there are flat out places that refuse to serve ketchup as they think it ruins the food (including burger joints in the US). It doesnt matter if it was 'tame' or not, it soured the video which as a food video, I hate hearing lukewarm shit where people are like "oh it was nice buuuuutttttt......." just be honest if you didnt like it instead of trying to just be bitchy and picking it apart like a toddler like the way they fucking picked at that jigglypuff cheesecake like wtf? and as a former no egg but still dairy vegetarian it will forever irk me when people complain about the options, because in no way, shape or form are we the majority so I just accepted I had to go to specialty stores or cafes instead of trying to make everyone bend to my personal food choices.
im a sucker for pokemon content but fuck she was actually annoying me because of all the "oh it wouldve been BETTER WITH THIS" wanting ketchup and whinging about everything like "oh this would be SO cute but they dont have soy", idk I have issues with people who film certain things knowing what they were going into and then whinging about it. its a character cafe in japan, ofc you're going there for the looks not the taste and its well known that they wouldnt have vegan things there.... just go to a vegan cafe instead of whining or at least act like you enjoyed it cause it soured the video for me so i couldnt even finish it. (doesnt help sophie was there and i have an extremely low opinion of her so)
See I dont have a problem with her talking about it, I had a problem as to where she was talking about it, not to repeat myself too much but if im watching a food review I dont want to hear about how much your hand hurts or whatever, I dont want to hear your life story, I want to hear about how crispy the pastry is, what flavour the filling is, how much it was etc, talking about personal things to humanise as a youtube 'brand' is fine but it belongs in vlogs/their own separate videos/seperate personal channel in my opinion. its part of her daily life so I get it I understand but as I said I prefer my content separate, im watchin a food vid to chill out and relax so I dont wanna hear about ailments in that content but a daily life vlog or a specific 'this is my illness and about it' video is okay to me, but keep it separate for those who want to enjoy carefree food review content and maybe dont want to see a downer vid on how shitty things are (tbh depending on the person some dont want to be reminded of their own illness so actively avoid those things but it can help others, its all individual).
so she wants to lewd cosplay malon and Im just gonna put this out there, the kids in Ocarina of time are around 9 years old, the time skip is 7 years, making malon as an 'adult' only 16. Cremia from MM is technically an AU malon but its eluded that Cremia is an adult as Anju's mother insists that Kafei is cheating on her with Cremia... but the bottom line is if the lewds Malon she's lewding a minor regardless.
I said before that i wasn't a fan of the eds things in food videos and would prefer them in vlogs and honestly I really liked the new video, its exactly where the eds/disability/pain talks and I have no qualms at all with it. it instead made me smile a bit as I'm having an extremely bad pain day and can relate and its not intruding on a cream puff review or something, I hope when they release the next food video i can enjoy that content separately as well for when I want to watch that
I was the one who brought up her going on about her illness far too much and its because I myself have a chronic deteriorating illness so its something I can empathise with but at the same time it frustrates me at how simon and martina have gone about it. There are PLENTY of things they could do without compromising Martinas health, do some japanese delivery foods videos, do online shopping hauls, more cooking videos, if they scattered some in the home videos around with maybe one or two going out ones a month it would be MUCH more interesting because yeah i get it, its really hard some days but every single damn day I make sure i push myself to do SOMETHING productive or im just sitting and rotting and letting the illness get to me. Its okay to have bad days, but its not okay to constantly dwell on these things and find ways around it. You dont have to go to the sailor moon cafe but why not do a haul of japan only goods they sell online there? Dont have to go out for japanese food or get simon to bring back things to try from 7/11 cause those videos are really big on youtube..there are plenty of at home options while still showing parts of japan, show us how to make shit I cant imagine getting my hands like the plum syrup was a good start, i cant get japanese plums here so I can only watch others do it, make at home sukiyaki, etc... I'm rambling at this point but its just frustrating that there's so many options out there for them yet they choose to make stupid depressing videos about ohhh cant do much....ohhhhh bad day like okay cool I'm tryna watch youtube to cheer up from my own shit and y'all just draggin me down bro.
I think at this point they should really create a separate channel for the cats (i wouldnt mind them obviously showing up in vlogs, even some shorter 5/10 min cat videos as long as its related to the main topic like testing japanese cat toys or cat gachas) or change their channel name to Rachel, Jun & Cats because its clearly not a "my husband is japanese"/japanese information videos solely anymore. I love cats but if your channel has a certain theme like, just create another channel for your other stuff so people know what they're getting
yeah im not trying to sound really mean but like, i dont watch food/travel youtube videos to hear the hosts whinge about themselves. I watch to see food I can never eat, see sights I cant see and distract from my own shitty life so her dragging HER shitty life it into it like you said makes me damn annoyed and stressed like let me just enjoy myself watching a video. I don't care about her videos about her illness thats fine like okay dude cool i get it, but it doesnt need to bleed into videos about goddamn cream puffs.
hate to necro this thread but I just need to say, I get it Martina, you have EDS and I dont care. I'm getting really sick of her lugging her build a ladder shit into EVERY DAMN video, you had a bad day? cool I'm trying to watch to see the food you're supposed to be showing off but instead im getting 5mins of you lying in bed, whinging about how shit you feel and how you're gonna ~~get over it~~ and do normal ppl shit, I get it, I also have a shitty physical condition but I don't go around every time someone speaks to me "oh today was SOOOO bad but its ok" like, make a video about it, have it in vlogs or some shit (i know they dont do vlogs but if they want to showcase how shitty her life is, leave it in there), leave it out of food videos or showing around japan videos because it has nothing to do with the video and its frankly irritating to me.
as apart of a huge crackdown on pedophiles communicating on videos... youtube is disabling comments on i believe its any videos with kids in them since it was revealed there was a gross hidden child porn ring due to comments on some videos (like some strange voyeristic shit idk i didnt look too far into it) but I feel just banning all family channels is kinda a bad move and weird? but idk maybe lindy will get worried her primary source of income is threatened with how youtube has been the last few years.
as horrible as it is to lose a pet, I hope that this encourages them both if they want to get a purebred to please look into the breeder/parents, we decided to get a kitten awhile back (is now a gorgeous adult cat, healthy and well loved) and before we got them we went to the breeders house, saw the parents, talked to the owners and their practices/papers and asked about the health of the parents..all things you should do if you choose to buy from a breeder, I refuse to support pet stores but if you want a specific breed, research and look into things p l e a s e, I dont believe this is their 'fault' but I do really hope it makes them more serious about pet ownership and where the kittens come from, to avoid these horrible things happening again (a similar thing happened to I believe rachel and jun too with hina, didnt look far enough into the parents/owners of the cat and had a horrible genetic disease and died prematurely because of it )
I'm gonna set some things straight, i dont give a shit about pdp, i just knew him as the big youtuber who used to have kids for fans and now he's more of a memelord. You cant blame kylie jenner for people busting their lips on the stupid challenge, you cant blame the creator of pepe the frog because of disgusting alt righters trying to use the image, and of course of all, you cant blame islam/muslims for things like isis/911 because in the end extremists views and actions DO not represent the masses. This person was lets all say it a TERRORIST. A right wing terrorist who is trying to incite fear, hatred and race wars because of disgusting ideals promoted by the right wing EXTREMISTS. I for one feel sickened by this ordeal, taking meme culture and using it as a weapon to try and distract from what it truly was, an act of terrorism and an act of extremist right wing bullshit. I'm gonna echo people by saying the thing to concentrate on is the victims, the masses i mentioned earlier who had nothing to do with this piece of shits manifesto, the people who were going about their daily lives....regardless of religion or race we all bleed red and deserve the same respect. God i hope they rot in jail for eternity for this gross act of hatred and violence, but I do think we need to look into these extremist boards like 8ch and the absolute abhorrent attitude that leads to these horrible things. tl;dr dont blame the references, blame the perpetrator
ever since i got sick ive basically spent all day every day wondering if its even worth staying alive if im this fucked up, not to mention no one talks to you if you dont have anything to offer so i just sit and rot and fester with these thoughts... so i guess im just ranting to the wind how i wish i'd just hurry up and die but im not terminal..how depressing lmao
tbh I'm a bit sick of her wish stuff, i thought it was common knowledge that wish is just cheap chinese slave labour clothes, ofc the clothes are mostly made for tiny asian sizes (hence the waist being wrong every time, they were made for people at least 15cm shorter than her) and maybe do some proper clothing outlet comparison vids? like how good is this standard pair of jeans from these various american made companies etc (idk man where i live we pride on buying locally produced stuff so) to promote better things for her watchers to buy? idc if you wanna buy taobao/aliexpress/whatever shit but its always pretty consistently you get what you pay for stuff so i'd rather watch her get things I'd want to buy myself? maybe she should do some bat wing dress comparisons, go buy shit from like killstar, some other alternative stores and compare fit or w/e or go compare like $5 ebay leggings to some $80 printed ones from an indie store but I'm sick of the videos with obvious endings yes you paid $3 for the shirt and it stinks just like the child labor factory it came from big surprise.
