  1. Ragga added a post in a topic Debate Thread ( racism, cultural appropriating ect)   

    http://everydayfeminism.com/2013/09/cultural-exchange-and-cultural-appropriation/
    Interesting article I read today, figured I'd share it with you guys.
    Also if you want to comment on it, it should go without saying but make sure you read the whole damn thing beforehand because it's annoying when people read the first paragraph or two of an article and then jump to conclusions.
    The author bring up a variety points and I think it's a pretty well-rounded article on cultural exchange/appropriation and why the line between the two can be hard to draw at times, as well as why labeling something someone is doing as appropriation isn't about the person doing it themselves.

    Miitomo
    Nintendo's first phone app game, based off of Tomodachi Life, but here the focus is on answering questions about yourself and sharing these answers with your friends.
    I created this thread not to debate about the game but rather just see if there's anyone else using it.

    When did the English version of the app come out anyways? It was fairly recently, right? I'm was pretty surprised when the game was translated outside of Japanese, but this also means that i have no idea of the cats' English names lol. If I download the English version though would that get rid of my progress?

    Same! Im worried as well just in general, I've never had my eyes measured/fitted, I just had my eyesight tested and it's 20/20 but I guess even then i could technically need a prescription to have it fit properly... and idk if I wanna go out of my way to have my eyes measured for it.
    Plus I'm worried about care for them... and buying safe ones...

    I completely agree, there's no way she's gaining subs so quickly, and I suspect she's buying likes on her videos as well...

  6. Ragga added a post in a topic Faking Bad English..   

    If anything, moving to Japan would make your English sound more like "Japanese English," but you wouldn't forget it all together. But not in fucking Tokyo man, there's plenty of Japanese people there who speak English better than Mira.
    To be fair I have had a couple of friends who studied i Japan for a year, and then on return sounded like foreigners because they were so used to when they did speak in English speaking with people who were no good at it and they started to mimic that, partially by accident partially so that the Japanese people could better understand them. But then when they came back to the US people asked them if they were foreigners lol.
    But the thing is that they were in a place in Japan were there's almost no English speakers, Mira in Tokyo having her English get so bad makes no sense.

  7. Ragga added a post in a topic Fashion on a budget!   

    I agree second hand shops are great!
    I'd suggest too learning some basics of sewing so that you can alter the clothing you pick up and customize it to your liking, that helps a lot. So if nothing else you can just pick up clothing for cheap (less expensive too than just buying fabric) and then completely make it into something else.

  8. Ragga added a post in a topic Yumi King   

    Ohh, Okay. I was confused for a bit haha.
    And cotton is definitely a good fabric to use for beginners. I used to sew back in middle and a bit in high school through a community club for kids/teens, and cotton was always a safe choice for those just learning how to sew since it's doesn't stretch too much, isn't slippery, etc. Which i don't mind at all because I sweat in a lot of fabric that isn't mostly cotton lol.
    it's been years though since I've done any sewing, and I really want to get back into it, so I might try one of Yumi King's tutorials, such as the pinafore one someday to get back into things, besides doing research. It definitely is aimed at a beginner audience, which makes sense considering her viewers are fairly young.

    Really? Because I've been a watcher of her channel for about a year now (around when she started) and I don't remember her talking all that much in the beginning either

  10. Ragga added a post in a topic Koreaboos vs Weeaboos   

    I don't know a whole lot about the Kpop community, but from what I can tell while weeaboos may be generally socially weird, annoying people koreabos are worse because of their obsessions with Koreans, and idols in particular.
    It's super creepy, and while some weeaboos are Asian fetishists I feel like it's a lot less often than with koreaboos.

  12. Ragga added a post in a topic General Venus Angelic thread #2   

    One thing I wonder about is how much of her love for Manaki vs. not wanting to be with her mother made Venus flee.
    So far Margret has been putting all of the blame on Manaki, while Venus says that it was her mother's fault, however for not liking/letting her be wih Manaki. So in both cases a fair amount of cause is put onto Venus's relationship with Manaki.
    But I and I'm sure a lot of people here feel like a lot of it has to do with Margret's abuse, who knows how much of Venus's feelings for Manaki are what made her runaway, or if she more sees him like a savior.

    Even still, a DIY tutorial on them?? If you're going to use sea sponge tampons you gotta do it right, not like this. And yes her videos are so cringey.

    GOD I have finally caught up on over 200 pages!!
    Seriously this thread is crazy, every time you read a page and click next thinking "oh good I'm closer to being caught up!" a new page apears, again and again.
    But anyways I'm glad you guys are calling this "Youtube news" person out on their shit, I can't even believe how fucking unprofessional it is to be so uninformed and present it like news.

    Good Decent etc.
    This is actually just a quick question, maybe this isn't the right place to ask but I was wondering about these "good" "decent" things that appear under people's avatars now, is that just something to do with upvotes?
    I'm assuming that's just from wherever hosts this website but I was wondering.

    Aw man, even BBC did a report on this: http://www.bbc.com/news/technology-35470159
    They've lost well over 350,000 subscribers from this now, and the number keeps climbing steadily.

    This drama has been so delicious, I love it.
    They went from a YouTube channel that was greatly respected across the platform, and then after showing off their crazy ("We'll look back on this moment someday as the day we all stood together," etc.) and having everyone turn on them, from viewers to other big YouTubers.
    It's so good. All I can think of is one of those twists in a movie, like Hans in Frozen.

  21. Ragga added a post in a topic Fine Brothers Entertainment / The Finebros   

    Wanted to link a couple of videos that talk about the controversy.
    Basically for the first video (this is Jaltoid) apparently TheFineBros have done shady things in the past, such as e-mailing a bunch of already popular animators on YouTube with a copy-and-paste message asking them to do a 10 min-ish long video for their channel, with little to no pay and instead just for "promotion" which is kind of shitty considering that's not how things work at all. And in general people are just seeing through their "react world"

  22. Ragga added a post in a topic Nose Surgery?   

    Nobody has brought it up yet so i thought I'd put it out there, but a lot of rhino consultations is the surgeon trying to figure out what you want out of it. Doctors talk about how it's important to know what you want to change going into your meeting with them because otherwise sometimes they have to pry to figure out what people actually want out of it.
    And look at the doctor's before-and-afters, you want to make sure that they're not just doing a "cookie cutter nose" or trying to go for some imagined ideal, but instead is able to change things appropriate to what the patient sees fit, besides basic principals of balance.

  23. Ragga added a post in a topic Fine Brothers Entertainment / The Finebros   

    Thank you for posting this! I logged onto PULL today just to find/create this thread, haha.
    I used to be a fan of theirs, I thought that their videos were well produced and thought out, they brought a lot of interesting and though provoking content, etc. I didn't realize that they were trying to get their fans to harass "Ellen" for doing a segment on her show where kids react to old technology, or taking down people's own "react" videos they made themselves and put on Youtube. This is ridiculous.
    Not only that but a ton of big Youtubers are speaking out about this, on YouTube, twitter, etc. and considering one of TheFineBros' biggest series is "YouTubers react" chances are that even the people they get to be in those videos won't want to be associated with them anymore and they'll lose that series.
    In the past couple of days they've lost over 225,000 subscribers, which is obviously huge, and a ton of people are watching live counters like baddog provided to watch it all go down.
    Since the first video announcing "React World" all of their videos on TheFineBros and their React channel have majority negative ratings. Their "update" video in which they try to clear things up but really just spew PR nonsense has 3.5 million views, almost 100,000 comments, and over 350,000 thumbs down. They keep taking down the top comments on their (as well as other places) but people keep on at it.
     
    There's a really good reddit post that goes through all of the sketchy stuff they've done relating to their copyright claim and whatnot but I can't seem to locate it now... the link gets posted to YouTube videos relating to this but if I can find it later I'll post it.

    The Chocolate Dress though she just did a video on turned out pretty well, I think, and she seemed to use a bit higher quality fabric for it.

    ^GradeAUnderA addressed that in the "Why I Hate Prank Channels" video, basically that there's no actual "pranks" in their video, they just purposefully try to rile people up, and in the case of those "in the hood" videos black people in particular.
