On his podcast he's constantly interviewing people like Jeffree who have had controversies and a history of lying. I enjoy his podcast and interviewing these people, as outside of their bad history you realize they're just people but at the same time if they've done some fucked up shit that they haven't apologized for we shouldn't normalize that. In the second Weird Side of Youtube video he interviews an age player to get a better understanding of it before completely judging and normalizing it (but to be fair, it seems like he didn't know about the ddlg and age player communities in the first place). I think Shane is looking at these people's h bad istories and treating them like he wants to be treated with forgiveness?? But IMO Shane's situation is slightly different because after the blackface incident he's shown he's trying to change and properly apologize several times. These people, especially Jeffree, aren't changing. On another note, the only good thing that's come out of these videos is that Shane was lowkey dissing Jeffree and Manny MUA the entire time
Swagbucks is the most reliable but it's soooo slow I find that you have to spend hours on it. even with the few referrals I got it's still pretty slow. FeaturePoints is a decent app that gives you points for downloading free apps and having them open for a couple of minutes. it also gives you a couple of points for the sign up process like connecting your email. in exchange for these points you can get giftcards for Amazon, Xbox, PSN, WoW, LoL, etc.... or Paypal money. I find that it's one of the fastest money making app, some say otherwise. It helps a lot to have people join in using your code because if they download an app that's for an example 100 points you get 50 points. I also have a code so you can get your first 50 points otherwise you'll just start with 0 points so I'll have it in the read more in case cuz i'm not sure if it's appropriate or not to self promo ;;; Applike is similar to featurepoints except you'll constantly be gaining points the longer you have the app open so if you're doing stuff away from your phone you can just leave an app open and let it do its thing. there's a referral system to increase your points and you'll get ur first 50cents (4999 pts) real quick if you use someone's referral code/link which will give you 4444 pts. Ebates is not so much a free money making site but it's a site for you to get cash back for money you've spent online on sites like ebay, Amazon, walmart, target, ulta, etc.... it's pretty useful. but if you have swagbucks (which gives you swagbucks back for shopping with the extension on) you can't pair the extension with ebates so you might want to opt for just turning on ebates when you're shopping online. You can also get cashback from certain stores when shopping at their physical locations you just have to link the deal/cashback promo to the credit card you're going to be using I also have a sign up link for this too
dunno if i would label it a scam, as she's explaining her reasoning for having it that price, but she's definitely stretching out the truth to make the most $$$ - making it seem like it's this oh so tiring expensive process to get something from Japan sent to the US. at that point it's kinda up to the buyer and how thought out their decision to purchase said plush is. there are other options like eBay (also protected by paypal), otakumode (also protected by paypal), and indie shops specifically meant to resell authentic Japanese goods (most are found on storenvy, so still protected by Paypal) so that way you don't have to go through the BS conversion fees, shipping fees and shipping time DCS is trying to bring up.
the reddit post i linked earlier kinda goes into this. Arin stated Suzy has actually questioned whether or not she should continue appearing on Grumps because of the negativity/assumptions like these. Arin's actually the one that's pushed for her to promote herself/her shop. also about the cop comment, Suzy's mom is or was a cop so of course she's really biased.
iirc Jon had a gf at the time so it was more along the lines of the girls didn't get along, so Jon didn't get along with her and because Suzy was kinda... a manager?? of Grumps before or at least she was an anchor and would try to keep people in check, this would clash with Jon. The "yoko ono" comment and other vague comments was Nicole, the gf, being petty on a stream chat
tbh im still irked till this day that ppl are still trying to pin the blame on Suzy. Like, Suzy has her faults (ex: iirc she was lying on her etsy store in the past) but based on the shit Jon has been saying these days and how easily he snaps or victimizes himself when he gets corrected or argued with, it wouldn't surprise me if it was solely a Jon thing. Grumps fanbase still think too highly of Jon and too low of Suzy lol
edit: here's the etsy scandal I was talking about https://www.reddit.com/r/ConspiracyGrumps/comments/30bhdf/proof_of_suzys_dishonesty_suzys_etsy_scam/
well, a lot of the people i've seen share those memes and laugh (including me) have MI's or suffer from suicidal thoughts themselves and get a kick out of them. it's not really finding suicide funny per say, but it's almost like self deprecating humor. i especially got a kick out of this one lol
i can see how on the flip side people with these experiences not find it funny though. but i've also seen neurotypical people/people without mental illnesses share these memes and laugh at it because they're laughing at her being over dramatic and, although i haven't seen the series for myself and just read thorough analysis and reviews, i believe it's due to the series not being able to convey and touch on mental illnesses and suicide very well and just made her look like a dramatic selfish teen. but that's kinda a 50/50 opinion I've seen from everybody, especially people with mental illnesses who've watched this show. now this particular post is just kinda them patting their own ass so I understand why you don't like this one. i get where they're coming from and that's great for them, but imagine if they used a real person as an example in that post than a fictional character's "Robin Williams committed suicide for 13 reasons. I have 1300 reasons and I'm still here fighting on." doesn't sound as empowering and just sounds dickish. people like this have to understand everyone's mental illnesses affect people differently. you can have thousands of reasons to kill yourself and don't but another person can have one particular reason and can't keep on fighting anymore. your experiences with MIs and suicidal thoughts don't dictate how others should react to MIs and suicidal thoughts.
part of the reason why people say he's anti-black, on top of him using the n word in the past, is that there was a outfit bretman did that people considered blackface because he wore an afro. he didn't darken his skin or anything as far as i can tell
oops I guess I didn't clarify. Their site is usually an eyesore, not so much their clothing. At the moment their site theme is a lil tamed compared to the obnoxious graphics they've previously had as their theme.
I looove giveaways. I'm like, slightly lucky because I've won a good amount of giveaways but about two of them I didn't get the stuff for. One of them was because I assumed it was lost in the mail and I didn't wanna bother the giveaway host about it anymore (the giveaway was just for X-Men First Class fanart buttons). And the other giveaway for Pierce the Veil shirts I'm p sure was a scam for more followers because I won it off of IG and she (the user was piisss but someone else took that name since then) was one of those typical scene/edgy constantly posting then deleting posts to fit a theme accounts with thousands of followers but with only hundreds of likes and constantly holding giveaways In other giveaways I won a shirt from plus cutie/spreepicky, a handmade rainbow beanie, $15 to use anywhere (I ended up getting a wig from ebay with that lol), SNK notebook + handmade erwin and levi felt hair clips, cute blood splatter bat wing hair clips from kawaiipowerup, a lil ghost plushie from claireyloucreations, stickers of an artist's logo, and almost exactly a year later I won a drawing of myself by that same amazing artist.
I think John's JS liquid lipstick might be real and john just has really big hands/long fingers. if not, the bottle is really on point for being a fake. but I just got my sugarpill liquid lipstick today and I believe the bottle is exactly the same as JSC's and the SP one feels kinda small in my hand too despite me not having large hands and it's not much longer than my short fingers I used this guide on how to spot fake JSC liquid lipsticks. Just like the real ones from what I see, John's applicator has a fuzzy slanted tip, has a clear wand and base and the sticker on the bottom has the shade name in bold letters.
Unless they had someone help them set up their fiverr page, I kinda doubt they didn't know any English whatsoever so I don't see how Felix's message didn't raise any red flags when the words "death to all" are included. You can tell Felix felt genuinely bad though based on his expression ngl despite the really bad ending circumstances, that's one of pewds' best videos.
