DIY or DIE


#202

it sounds like to me, that you think people should only use one platform and stick to them…that’s the difference. I don’t give two shits about platforms. I cater my content to anyone who mixes. Not any specific “teams”. I guess that’s hard for some people. I apologize if you’ve ever felt left out.

I never noticed that


#204

ive only seen or heard him promote , im not sure how he has created any divisive atmosphere , could you explain


#205

Yeah I much preferred Dirordie though just because of the Amsterdams Vaoes robotic kind of presentation. Was a while later I found Fresh and Trevor Jones, wish he would come back, even though Im really not into the hardware side at all now, only replace stuff if it breaks…his passion for building was incredible, liked his eliquid reviews as well

NAV did an AMAZING job bringing people into the scene. His intro video alone I’m sure turned thousands into mixers. Wish he would come back, too.

+1 for New Amsterdam Vape, single most helpful video out there for anyone looking to start mixing.
Clear, precise and concise. Very informative. Wish he came back too.

As for DIY or DIE, I don’t care too much about him but then again I don’t feel the need to criticize him or let him know that I don’t care because he wouldn’t care. Get it?

If you don’t like him for whatever reason, move on. That’s my advice.
He used e-liquid mixing as a platform to make a living, good for him. You can too if you want to.
I guess he must be doing something right to gain a following.

Yeah, I can explain, his persona in other forums and social groups are based on the crowd that’s is present in. in mixing groups, any conversation that’s brought up and he’s chimed in or tagged in, he doesn’t reel in his lackies, dissing well known mixers such as Alisa (who he has had on his show) or H.I.C, or the between the lines in his shows about other sites not being what they should be, then doing the same thing but slapping the term “remix” on top of it, like it will mask that its something completely original.

It’s the mentality that you run into when you meet a mixer in person and you start talking to them and they seem kind of brainwashed and have an immediate bias against anything not DIYORDIE. I’ve met at least 10 people in person, through local B&M, in several states that was like this. I’m not sure what is going on behind closed doors in those forums, but i’m sure its not what is being portrayed in the public eye in terms of whats being portrayed to that audience. but eh, I was looking at vape podcasts of 2018 and had to chuckle at “The Leader of DIY Mixing” or etc … self proclaimed… well, I’m the king of the castle, and your the dirty rascal lmao

OMG, I am such a dirty raskal. That’s good stuff, love it. made me laugh aloud. How do the kids say it? LOL.

I got to admit, I don’t get out much, so I don’t really know the pulse of the community, but I do notice the clique mentality among the so called " reviewers." I can’t hardly stomach the “popular” ones ( not you @Steampugs and your team) and the crap they spew from their open maws. One of the things I hate the most is when they say, " I got this freeeeeee, but that in no way impacts my review." MY A$$…

Anywho, Peace Love and Happiness.
