(Yup, did that on purpose lmao)
One trend: people doing giveaways on Instagram then not outright announcing who won.
Do you prefer them this way..? I always like the full image option as I visit DS mainly on my phone and tablet and it makes viewing easier imo
Lol never mind I saw your next post directly after posting mine.. I guess you DoN’t prefer them that way!!
Yeah, should have put them in the same comment, didnt realize it split between 2 pages until afterwards
Instagram clips with loads of fails at the start edited in (unless they're particularly funny/extreme). Or if the clip isn't cut correctly and there's a couple of missed attempts before the actual clip.
Probably just a me thing, but I just want to see the trick as fast as possible on Instagram.
I understand the idea of 'showing some misses as respect to the grind' or whatever, but honestly I don't want to see em when scrolling insta. If I watch you miss once, I'm pretty much instantly gonna keep scrolling past
It's unfortunate that some former and current players are insecure about kendama, which may lead to them quitting kendama or even outright bashing the game and players.
Case in point: a group of former players in my country, though once very active, have abandoned the game and are very rude towards players now. They've resorted to calling kendama as "something little boys do" (colloquially translated from a filipino term), and have been somewhat rude in refusing an invitation to jam.
Not ragging on them for moving on, but it's a bit disheartening to see people who were once active in the community have such a bad attitude toward kendama now.
That sucks that they treat it that way now. There really is no justification for this, there are so many players still in this community, OGs and new players, who are full blown adults (myself included) and it’s them (the OGs) that we owe a lot to for getting kendama to where it is now.
Regardless, ‘kids toy’ or not it’s a dick move to ridicule someone for enjoying what they like especially if you understood it yourself.
That’s unfortunate to hear. It’s a very childish behavior that likely stems from someone else ridiculing them into being insecure. They could also just be social chameleons who will do the same thing with the next fad they get involved in. Real progression and understanding of Kendama takes real dedication and serious time, therefore it weeds out the fad followers pretty quick!
It is unfortunate but sometimes people feel that to appear to be cooler/more mature/whatever, particularly to new groups which they want join, they have to stand on the ashes of things they once liked. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
