Subject: What is up with the My Little Pony fad?

Written By: joeman on 05/24/11 at 8:10 pm

I am surprised they are back and with a different look.  My sister had a couple of those toys when she was a baby. 

However, I don't understand the whole obsession with them right now.  It seems to get really popular not only with kids, but people that are in their 20s like me.  What is causing this phenomenon?

What is causing this phenomenon?


There's this place.  Called 4http://i275.photobucket.com/albums/jj285/peetie12/th_smiley_hammer.gif  But don't go there, 'cuz it's gross.

My Little Pony went viral last October primarily as a result of this article lamenting the state of the animation industry.  General reaction upon watching an episode of it is, "Y'know, for commercial pap, this isn't as bad as it could have been", and the characters are sufficiently expressive (and distinctively-drawn) that the show is a source of ready-made memes that barely need captioning. 

My Little Pony went viral for the same reason that Rebecca Black wound up getting her song covered on national TV two weeks ago, and why Star Wars Kid eventually sorted himself out and got his law degree, but in the meantime, he dropped out of school, finished the year in the psych ward, and it took three years for the lawsuits to get settled out of court.

In the case of the Pony meme, MLP creator Lauren Faust was internet-literate enough (long before the series started) to realize she had a hit on her hands, and rather than trying to sue everybody out of existence, just rolled with it and turned it into a source of gags that she could sneak into the cartoons. 

The thread comes full circle to creator-driven animation: as soon as she started adding in-jokes for her adult fans, she hit upon one of the things that made the Warner Brothers cartoons (and Pixar's present-day films) so successful - cartoons that parents can enjoy, too.

Ha I will be honest. I watched the entire first season of the new MLP series... and I enjoyed it.

Thoroughly...

Maybe a little too much.

I guess it's because it's so colorful and happy... I like colors and happiness. What's wrong with that? Girly things should stop being looked at in such a negative light. Most shows (very few) I watch are either happy or funny. My life is stressful enough. I don't want to worry about the lives of people that don't even exist.

Also the inside jokes are tasteful and very funny. :)

I will have to admit, though, that if it wasn't a meme I probably wouldn't have watched the entire season. But I'm glad I did.

Actually, you're right, but it's also where over 9000 of the Internet's best memes come from - from the Rick Roll to Lolcats to Rage Guy to some dudes in funny masks who and then the Egyptian government collapsed.  As for the risks of taking a casual stroll through Internet's equivalent of Mos Eisley Spaceport, well, the bunny and Steve Martin were right: comedy is not pretty.

It's entirely an Internet phenomenon.  No meatspace (TV ratings or toy sales) effect whatsoever.


I didn't even know My Little Pony was back.  
What's this obsession you speak of?


It's a long story involving a raid in February (many articles on the site are NSFW, but the graph of posts per day is SFW), and I only found it when it hit SomethingAwful a bit later.  But it took off for the same reason that Caturday and Boxxy did.  Part of comedy is juxtaposition, and sometimes you just need something completely cute and fluffy as a break.  

XsCHIKTRYRk

Disclaimer: Umm, that's a parody.  But it's an epic one, and it's consistent with the characters in the real show, which is the really freaky part.


Ha I will be honest. I watched the entire first season of the new MLP series... and I enjoyed it.


And while people were innocently watching episodes in search of screencaps to use as image macros, that happened.  

Thousands of times.  

This is a show that was rebooted solely to boost toy sales of a flagging brand, so your expectations are in the gutter, and yet - unlike the infomercialtoons that killed the cartoons we grew up with - this one doesn't totally suck.

I wouldn't go out of my way to watch it (I'm male, and I never even saw the original!), but if I stumble across an episode, yeah, I'll watch it.  It's sorta like the grand finale of TMNT a couple of years ago - we all grew out of TMNT years/decades ago, and yet every once in a while you're channel-surfing on a Caturday morning, and you see there's yet another incarnation of TMNT (What, they went forward in time?  Oh, that was last season, now they've made it back home?  There's a full-length feature being aired in 3 parts to end the series?) and you figure "hey, why not?".  

Get up early, turn off your mind, pour yourself a big ol' mug of milk, open a bag of Oreos, and spend 20 minutes reliving your childhood.  Pretty good return on investment.

Karma for the chart.  Fills in a few of the gaps for us newcomers :)

In defense of the old mediaradio guy, the picture in the Wired article does look like the Real Life version of Comic Book Guy.  And it's the mockery that's the hook.  Everyone watches one episode.  Just one little episode can't warp one's brain that much, right?

And now, Weird Al: Angry White Boy Polka.

Seeing Faust's "Powerpuff Girls" style of eyes contrasted with the original eyes (yup, there's a cameo from the original animated series) sealed it, and my reaction was pretty much like the rest of the crowd at 2:22.  

But like all these parodies, you're gonna want to watch the whole thing, and freeze-frame it at least a few times during the video.  I was not expecting 0:21.

The thing about the dude's picture, he actually sent Wired several pictures to choose from. Some weren't as good quality wise(like having glare for example), so they picked one that had the best lighting quality(It was just bad luck being the least flattering). I seen the explanation on another board, which went to the polling site and voted awesome.

Now, I only listened to about alittle of the radio talk.

I watched Fox's Red Eye talk about the fandom, they didn't seem harsh on it.

Yeah, My Little Pony Tales was at the tail end of G1 in early 90s. Somewhat similiar art style to G1, but without the magical disasters happening, a more modern setting with a slice of life theme(also more rough around the edges, but at least it's not G3 or 3.5).

The rest of G1 from what I remember and have watched recently.

Rescue from Midnight Castle- I never seen it as a kid, finally watching it not too long ago. Notable ponies in it: Twilight, Firefly and Applejack. Megan's character was better in this version and so was prototype Spike. Not too bad a pilot special, although rushed somewhat(it's only 22 minutes). The ponie's manes and tails are more detailed in this one.

Escape from Catrina- Never seen this as a kid either, watched it sometime after watching Midnight Castle. Notable ponies: Sparkle and Posie. Mane and tails are more simplified(and set for the rest of G1's animated series). Not as good as Midnight Castle, although I do like one of the songs in it.

My Little Pony: The Movie- Seen this as a kid and even rewatched over a week ago. Notable ponies: Lickity Split, Wind Whistler, Fizzy, Magic Star and Shady. I actually like the movie. I even remember having a dream about it(only because I fell asleep when it was on the Disney channel).

My Little Pony and Friends- I tend to have mixed feelings on the TV series, some of it I like... but alot of it could have been better. Surprise(who was a baby in Escape from Catrina) is in this series and Posie as well. Alot ponies from the movie are back as well.

That reminds me! Some people did some G4 versions of other G1 ponies:

Heart Throb
Lickity Split
Sky Dancer
Cherries Jubilee

There are actually more of them, but man that would take awhile to post.

I seen that on Ponibooru, kind of a LOL thing... Although I think Alvin is more like Rainbow Dash, Simon is more like Twilight and Theodore is more like Fluttershy(well a Fluttershy/Pinkie Pie hybrid).

Speaking of parodies...

I do have a few parody ideas based off of the FiM series. One to a 2 Live Crew song, one to a Weird Al song and interestingly enough... One to a Chipmunk/Chipette song(which was my first idea, although a loose one at the time... It evolved into a full idea after I got inspired by an episode I seen about week prior). I just need to stop letting other things distract me and start doing them(especially since two of them I have to do online regardless).

I do remember seeing a DW4 hack setup(The guy called it No Man's Land, it's a shame it's no longer up).

The only trick with the DW3 one would be figuring out what could be done in general, since I have no real idea what I'd want to do with it.

I'm actually pretty familiar with being in periphery demographic territory for pretty much my whole life.

While there are things I like that are in my target audience(stuff like Voltron, TMNT, etc.), there have been alot of things I've watched that you wouldn't think a boy/man would watch.

Examples include Rainbow Brite, I even watched the 80s My Little Pony(although I only really like the movie and recently Escape From Midnight Castle), Panyo Panyo Digi Charat(a more kiddy anime I had before it became I got broke into) and I play Pokemon(which should be no surprise by my first sentence).

To make up for that, here's MOP - Ante Up, aka "Friendship is wholly inappropriate for this age group", and if a reference to a track by MOP wasn't enough, let's be clear here, we're talking highly-NSFW language.  Somehow the juxtaposition of excruciatingly-cute ponies (particularly Fluttershy) performing hardcore rap never fails to bring the lulz.

The parody based on "A dog and pony show" and the one based on the fandom will be wrote soon after that(I'll submit the fandom one first, it's based on a 2 Live Crew song that's shorter than the song for the episode parody, it makes more sense in this order).

And now... Someone finally did a Nirvana one(not counting Weird Al's parody to Teen Spirit).

This is a second version. The first had even brighter flashing in it(Seth from Equestria Daily asked the PMV'er to tone down the flashing, otherwise he wouldn't post it. I guess he was worried about site visiters with Epilepsy).

Note: The PMV'er did put in fanart based off of the gorefic Cupcakes(although not the most horrific, thankfully). It does fit amazingly well to the song though, I will admit that.

For tonight's lulz, a tripleshot from the Warner Bros. (and the Warner Sister!)

 - Theme from Tiny Toon Adventures (1990-1992)

8NoRUgH9Chs

 - Theme from Animaniacs (1993-1995)

DCpdDS3L2xs (1995-1998/9)

 - Theme from Pinkie an-umm, I mean Pinky and the Brain :)

I think I finally realized why I enjoy this show.  (There, I said it.  I feel better.)  It's because 20 years ago someone asked me why I thought Tiny Toon Adventures was a worthy 90s successor to the classic Warner Brothers cartoons I grew up with, and I said "Watch a few episodes.  There's no way in hell these authors are writing entirely for kids."

At the time it was Tiny Toons, but that's what sent me into all the successor series (which we've now covered: Animaniacs, Pinky and the Brain, and Freakazoid).  That was the last gasp of Western-style cel animation, and to their credit, Warner Brothers (and the Easterners who actually did the animation!) sent the genre out with a bang.

Ah, okay.  :)

I think Ghost has been getting trolled since at least late 2009(Alot of it originating from the site we won't mention). The MLP calls I think starting happening in either late June or July of this year after he bashed the fandom(And really, what did he expect would happen when he says what he says on air?).

I think a good chunk of the actual callers aren't part of the fandom and do it just to troll him, the rest are the anti-hero type of Bronies.

While I haven't listened to all of the uploads(he gets annoying after awhile, I can only put up with so much), I do know that his Radio Graffiti segments have been swarmed heavily with My Little Pony before when I've listened to it on Youtube.

One of the Radio Graffiti segments had things like Winter Wrap Up, the Equestria Girls parody, the opening theme and even one of the MLP FiM songs in 8 bit style(He actually didn't get that one, thinking it was part of a video game). Then there was the music remix of his voice that kept getting spammed over and over again in one of the other calling segments.

He apparently even knows fan nicknamed Derpy Hooves is from My Little Pony(A caller said "I'm Derpy Hooves and I've brought you a letter").

On one of the broadcasts after bunch of calls, he said "I'm getting infested by Bronies".

Oh, Ghost... Never a dull moment with you around. :D

I actually found the Red Eye's talk about it to be pretty decent(even though they do obviously find it silly, at least they said it's free country) when I watched it awhile back. Although they posted the wrong generation(I think Ghost is the only one who has posted the right generation on an image he posted on his twitter or something like that).

Some people in the fandom did still get mad about it, but this is probably due to Red Eye's ties to Fox and Fox News.

Interestingly enough, this isn't the first time Red Eye mentioned MLP, the first time was when they were discussing something else(mentioning the a horse symbol looked like Applejack).

Unfortunately, it looks like that clips were taken down(one of the copyright's said Cartoon Network. Damn it Youtube! Get your act together).

Parody based off this vid below, which plays the Moon Stage theme from the Ducktales on the NES:

(Good thing Brentalfloss did a lyrical version of it)

Crazy Mare In Space

Mares..
Yes, mares in outerspace...
From the Hub's own cable tube...
On the moon....!

Hey, Nightmare Moon, you need some help today...
You know you are sealed...
There are stars
(There are stars)
On their way
(On their way)
It's gonna be one impressive break...
You are free from the moon, looking for vengence, you are inraged!

Ooooh....
Crazy Mare in space...
Yeah, you're really angry in your plight...

You have a creepy kooky cackle girl
and you've turned it night!
Turned it night!

(This plan is bad for you)

Here are some ponies out to stop your scheme...
With the elements, powered by harmony...
Their efforts helped purged the hate from you...
Overthrowing the plan of eternal darkness that would mean their doom!

Ooooh....
Luna, you are free
Oh, you're with your sister back at home
You can raise the moon, and know
That you're not alone...!
Not alone...!

Hey Luna! Your nights are cool...!

Step-Chan's onto something.  Memes are kinda like capsaicin.  The more you eat spicy food, the better your tolerance for capsaicin.  

This time last year, I was knee-keep in a radio montage.

With that one, it was like the entire Internet just exploded, in my general direction.  (Me gusta?  No, wait, that's just wrong!)  I've built up enough of a tolerance that if you throw something like that in my general direction, I'll get some of the references, but I'll play it several times over to figure out the ones I missed - and to keep an eye out for the ones that I recognized were placed there deliberately, but where the reference went completely over my head.

Welcome back, and happy first anniversary, Internet!

War. War never changes. It's been almost a year since their first attack. We thought they were powerless. We were wrong. When they hit, they hit us hard. We tried to fight back, but it was too late. Over time, their numbers grew exponentially, fueled by some unknown force. They were unstoppable...

All you have to do is take a cup of flour, add it to the mix,
Now just take a little something sweet, not sour, (a bit of salt, just a pinch!)

And just when I thought the story in question had topped everything, someone had to go and one-up the Internet, just in time for Hallowe'en:

So the answer to the question "Can we have a post based on a fanfic other than 'Cupcakes'?" is... Not tonight, Dashie.  Not tonight.

The 21-year-old woman told Washington County Sheriff’s Office detectives she wanted to “feel one” with a horse  (...)  Arguably the most artistic photo of the group is a picture of the naked 21-year-old,

http://t1.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcRjQCkCYV7gKOuUpgg74U0c-BshKEpjaqC8OdNWJ1b1r3ymLLtxZJmBLg

In addition to the picture of the naked woman inside the horse

http://t2.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcT0p9eKap_SteZ5zgWakjmiGVaiObiCWibi4yppJ39CNTJllGMb5mJgceg

After the horse had been put down and gutted

http://t3.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcTuR9P5ZW3Kw8EYudXaCt7N7xmUvIX7YqASw0Y39UuB1X7yeMzqm0fj2mg

the woman undressed and crawled inside the carcass of the dead horse and took pictures to prove it.

http://t1.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQvCxkUuHFQiOQJE6__H4G3TlG8mD4wVq3BVRLhhn7qp1d-pAj9nZUj-w

Washington County’s investigation is suspended.  There has been no evidence of any criminal activity. The horse was not abused, nor was it tortured. It was killed in what law enforcement considers one of the most humane ways to put animals down, a single gunshot to the brain with a high powered rifle.  The horse likely never knew what happened.  The meat was harvested and eaten.

http://t2.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcSUOO9Pu_yXaY_lZk8zCaedV49YFo0reOpeNGXdNIhEdX_GFY6DeO833pc

"At some point you in your career you say yeah I've seen a lot of bad stuff -- you see this kind of picture and you realize maybe you haven't seen everything, " said Washington County Sgt. Dave Thompson.

Sometimes truth is not only stranger than fiction, it's stranger than fan-fiction.

Since you asked about "G3.5", I'll talk abit.

The topic:

MLP history!

Of course, the G stands for generation, so that's something retorical.  :D

The G1 toys and cartoons started, as we know, in the 80s. G1 ended in 1992 if I read right.

Cartoons:
Rescue From Midnight Castle
Escape From Katrina
My Little Pony The Movie
My Little Pony and Friends
My Little Pony Tales

Something interesting to note(or maybe not) :D  is that some people mislabel My Little Pony Tales as G2, but the cartoon is in a similiar style to the rest of the G1 series and it came out shortly before G1 ended.

Something else I found out was that Rescue From Midnight Castle was done by the ones who did the Dungeons and Dragons cartoon, might explain why the characters are better detailed(notably their hair/manes). Escape From Katrina had more of a Bi-Shojo(pretty girl) look and the rest of the G1 series was abit more simplified(with more off model issues at that).

G2 started in the late 90s and wasn't successful for the most part. The ponies looked abit taller and slender in comparison to G1. There wasn't any cartoons during G2, but a computer game was made, I think it was called "My Little Pony Gardens"(something along that line).

G3 went into a more stylized version of G1 to some degree. I find the art to be abit unnerving, although some of the cartoons weren't too bad(if alittle mindless).

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vo13WMTQJ84

^ This is G3, which started in the mid 2000s and devolved into G3.5 in the late 2000s(They shifted the focused to 7 specific ponies, some that would be remade in Friendship is Magic).

I actually find the art in G3.5 less unnerving, but the cartoons are, just ugh.... abit too mindless. I watched Twinkle Wish Adventure and regretted it, along the same lines of regretting watching some of Demonophobia.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LypyOZP9mVo

^ This is G3.5, a clip from Twinkle Wish Adventure. G3.5 didn't last that long as you can probably guess.

G4 is currently what we're on with Friendship is Magic.

Clicky to embiggen: Cupcakes


The G1 toys and cartoons started, as we know, in the 80s. G1 ended in 1992 if I read right.


While we're at it - it's always been (in Hasbro's eyes) a vehicle to sell merchandise, at least until Faust got involved and made G4 about the animation.  Now I'm wondering if there were any shows that started off as toy advertisements but made the leap into decent animation.  The only toy license that comes to mind would be the Transformers.  (GI Joe was fondly-remembered, but not so much for its animation.)

Season 1, Episode 14, Suited for Success should speak to anyone working in a creative field, be it IT/consulting, web design, graphic design, etc., namely that the customer often has no idea what they want, and that if you spend all your time trying to do what the customer says they want (on the functional spec or the statement of work) without actually investigating what the customer really needs, you guarantee a disaster.  You could air that episode unedited at any company and people would get it that requirements definition is only part of the problem...  The customer's not always right, and that's why they're paying you for your expertise.  Along those lines, Season 1, Episode 24, Owl's Well that Ends Well is a textbook illustration of how rumors of layoffs/outsourcing and the resulting infighting and jockeying for position can be corrosive to company morale and productivity.  (At least when the rumors are untrue :), but the point is that sometimes the company really isn't trying to screw everyone over.)

But the easiest way to assimilate a co-worker into the herd is to skip the business lessons, and just find a Benny Hill fan who has kids, point him to Season 1, Episode 3, The Ticket Master, and tell him that "he'll know it when he sees it."

...and I am taking this show entirely too seriously.

This is the Internet.  If anyone's going to remix MLP into a series of videos on how to conduct business, they'll remix video...

Given the hours that probably went into making it, a triple-digit (and low-four-digit price) is actually pretty fair.  Crafters gotta craft, and the MLP community has drawn in some exceptionally talented crafters over the past year.

I finally went down the rabbit hole into the techno/remix/musical side of the MLP fad tonight (as in not just videos of existing tracks, but original musical works), and in addition to a few full-length albums of Eurobeat (and a couple of covers of Beatles tunes) to listen to over the next few days, I also found tonight's entertainment:

SOPA is a Bad Idea, but it's not going to stop Congress from passing it.

The long-term solution to DMCA and other enablers of self-appointed appropriators of culture is to do what Hasbro did with MLP:FiM, and acknowledge that remix culture drives sales, rather than denies sales, and to let it work its magic.  

But since that's not an option (at least not until every Congresspony who grew up in an age of artificial scarcity dies of old age, Google decides it's had enough and buys RIAA with its pocket change and fires every MAFIAA employee whose livelihood depends on artificial scarcity), there's always rampant piracy.  And blocking ads as you find them.  And doing your best to fuzz whatever data you may make available to marketroids.

It'll pass.  But don't worry.  Nobody from Hasbro will do anything to interrupt the lulz emanating from the MLP:FIM fansites.  And YouTube makes enough in marketing revenue that they'll stay up.

On a broader note, John Gilmore said in 1993 that the Internet interprets censorship as damage and routes around it.  In 1993, that was the advantage NATO had over the disintegrating/ed Warsaw Pact.  In 2013, it may be the advantage that has over .  It doesn't matter who exploits that advantage - I'd prefer it be "us", but the advantage is available to any who acknowledges that computers are great at copying bits.  Intellectual property lawyers can disagree, but code is law (you might want to see what Lawrence Lessig has done since that essay came out), and the machines that execute that code are incapable of knowing, caring, understanding, or even asking the question "what color are your bits", because bits don't have color.  Organizations that realize this and take advantage of it succeed.  Organizations that don't, fail.

But weirder than that, I just realized that a song from Veggie Tales was 2002's answer to the question "Who is John Galt", as posed in 1957's Atlas Shrugged.  Why keep the thing going when you could just shrugREPENT, QUIT YOUR JOB, AND SLACK OFF?

The serious answer is that most of the current fandom doesn't remember G1 (I didn't either).  And of those who do, they don't remember it fondly:



Or more to the point, more of the ones that are my favorites... (Yes, I'm aware of the dislike/hate of G1, but G3 usually gets it worse... been going to Ponibooru for awhile now, some of the users... usually anonymous ones, throw hissy fits over anything not G4. But not when it's an earlier generation in G4 style)

There is a decent amount of Wind Whistler and Fizzy(Galaxy too, I think) G4 styled fan art, so it's not like they completely hated it either.

I would just like to see more of Sweet Stuff and Masquerade. The one of Masquerade that exists doesn't have another pony obscuring her. I'd probably have to request it to someone who usually does G1 to G4 shifts, don't know where to start on that though.

I've seen a decent amount of G4 styled fanart of My Little Pony Tales, and that show gets a larger amount of hate than the rest of G1, kinda strange, because there were a few things it did better in certain areas(still very rough around the edges, but it did have less off model issues from what I've watched... but the songs in most cases are either mediocre or very bad, the slice of life elements could have been done better as well). Makes me wonder if that's why some trolls posters on Ponibooru try to label G2.

:D

I'm checking up on there, to see how many G1 to G4 pages there are....

34 pages, that's still a decent amount, but we need a few of the others to get some spotlight! Get to work artists!  :D ;D

Look, we all know damn well where the cutie marks are (Baby got flank!).

It's the him/her question that makes everypony wonder whether they want to see 'em or not.  Seeing as how the original is from 2006, I'm guessing "her" based on this 2008 link.  In the absence of the contrary (and I'd prefer not to see evidence to the contrary), my answer's a qualified "yes".

Exactly. Mainly when anyone says "Get a life", it's by what the more popular crowd's definition is; and it's something I find to be massively overrated. It basically boils down to bending over backwards doing only what they think you should be doing, under the rules of what they think being an adult is, what being mature is, and what is considered the norm for your group. In other words taking the fun out of one's life.

I'd rather have fun playing Dragon Quest and Pokemon, watching My Little Pony, other cartoons and anime than being bored and watching things that don't interest me like reality TV and sports just to get popular approval.

I remember doing an order for a customer a while back, she asked if I still draw(she knew me in high school, but I didn't remember her). I said something along the lines "not in along time" to which she which replied "I guess we all have to grow up sometime". I gave her a funny look and said "It has nothing to do with that". Too bad I didn't remember C.S. Lewis' quote:

Critics who treat adult as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development. When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.

I continue more next time, my computer's fan is working over time right.

What he said.


"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience."


And since I can't quite come up with a pony answer to CS Lewis... wait, I can.  That quote is entirely what's wrong with SOPA.  Congress isn't just wrong, it's so fractally wrong that it doesn't even know how wrong it is because its members are a bunch of technophobic luddities who are so dependent on MAFIAA funding that they've permitted themselves to be collectively bribed into thinking they're doing the right thing.  Dear Congress: it just isn't funny anymore.

Yeesh, GoDaddy. You reap what you sow(looking at some of the comments on there). I don't have any domains anywhere, so there is no issue on that front.

Although I thought Ghost was possibly serious with his bouts of rage over remixes and ponies, others have said that he's an actor and cannibal troll. After finding out that he opposes SOPA, I'm starting to see what they're talking about.

*Breaks for a second*

And now back to add to the Hearth's Warming Eve... Err... Christmas... With some holiday ponies!

Fine, Max!  I'll do it!

A Complete History of the Soviet Union As Told By A Humble Worker, Arranged To The Melody Of Tetris. (with Ponies.  Remember ponies?  This is a thread about ponies.  I'm not proud.  Or sobertired.)

To Moscow I came seeking fortune,
But they're making me work til I’m dead,
The Bourgeoisie have it so easy,
The Tsar's putting gold on his bread.
The people of Moscow are hungry,
But think what a feast there could be,
If we could create a socialist state,
That cared for the people like me...

XJHZ4E9tRHM

I am the man who arranges the blocks,
That descend upon me from up above.
They come down and I spin them around,
'Til they fit in the ground like hand in glove.
Sometimes it seems that to move blocks is fine,
And the lines will be formed as they fall.
Then I see that I have misjudged it;
I should not have nudged it after all.
Can I have a long one please?
Why must these infernal blocks tease?

I am the man who arranges the blocks,
That continue to fall from up above.
Come Muscovite!  Let the workers unite!
A collective regime of peace and love.
I work so hard in arranging the blocks,
But the landlord and taxman bleed me dry,
But the workers will rise, we will not compromise,
For we know that the old regime must die!
Long live Lenin, kill the Tsar!
We salute the sickle and star!

I am the man who arranges the blocks
That continue to fall from up above.
The food on your plate now belongs to the state!
A collective regime of peace and love,
I have no choice in arranging the blocks,
Under Bolshevik rule, what they say goes.
The rule of the game is we all are the same,
And my blocks must create unbroken rows.
Long live Stalin!  He loves you!
Sing these words, or you know what he’ll do!

I am the man who arranges the blocks,
That are made by the men in Kazakhstan.
They come two weeks late, and they don’t tessellate,
But we’re working to Stalin’s five year plan!
I am the man who arranges the tanks,
That will make all the Nazis keep away,
The Fuhrer is dead, and Europe is Red,
Let us point all our guns at the USA!
We shall live forever more,
We can start a nuclear war!

I am the man who arranges the blocks,
That are building a highly secret base,
"Hip hip hurrah" for the USSR!
We are sending our men to outer space!
I work so hard in arranging the blocks,
But each night I go home to my wife in tears -
What’s the point of it all, when you’re building a wall,
And in front of your eyes it disappears?
Pointless work for pointless pay!
This is one game I shall not play!

I am the man who arranges the blocks!

*pause*

But tomorrow I think I’ll stay in bed.
The winter is cold, I’ve got plenty of gold,
And I’m standing in line for a loaf of bread.
Maybe we’d be better off,
If we brought down Gorbachev...

I am the man who arranges the blocks,
That continue to fall from up above.
The markets are free! So much money for me!
Tell me, why should I care for peace and love?
The markets are free! So much money for me!
Tell me, why should I care for peace and love?
Peace and love!  Peace and love!

(Dammit, the guy who did the video stopped here, but I'll finish the lyrics because it's just that kind of a night.  In for a penny, in for a pound!)

YMFVY57dksE

(But I don't actually have to do any work because this guy beat me to it, right down to the fact that the world was black-and-white until the 30s for photographs, and if we're talking moving pictures, he nails the transition at the post-WW2 era of the late 40s and early 50s).

And now the wall is down, the Marxists frown,
There's foreign shops all over town!
When in Red Square, well don't despair,
There's Levi's and McDonald's there.
The US gave us crystal meth,
And Yeltsin drank himself to death!
But now that Putin's put the boot in,
Who’ll get in our way?

So we reject free enterprise,
And once again the left will rise.
Prepare the flags to be unfurled,
For we're seceding from the world:
We shall regain the Georgian soil,
We shall obtain the Arctic oil,
We shall arrange the blocks and toil,
Forever and a day...

(Game over!)

When I was little, I loved watching the original My Little Pony cartoons and I still enjoy them now. I have even started collecting G1 MLP toys from th 1980s, but only those I saw in the TV series.

I've only ever seen 1 or 2 full episodes of MLP: FIM and the thing I liked the most about them was that the ponies were in a style reminiscent to The Powerpuff Girls.

Here's one that's been re-dubbed with audio from the controversial Kanye West/Taylor Swift VMAs moment:

I grew up during the 80s MLP generation(referred to as generation 1) as well. I did watch some of the TV series, the movie and a little of My Little Pony Tales.

The only ones I didn't see from the 80s were Rescue From Midnight Castle(which was done by the same studio of the D&D cartoon) and Escape From Katrina, which are the first two specials ever made of the series.

I did finally watch those specials(along with some of the other G1 stuff, I was wanting a refresher in MLP history).

That's pretty neat. I actually like the Gemini one the best(which is funny, my sign is Aquarius, a sign that's suppose to be compatible with Gemini).

I have something I've been wanting to do on this thread for a little while now.

With the new year started, I plan on doing it here soon. It'll just take a little time to prepare.

I was assimilated into the Herd in part because of this thread.

Of the mane six, it'd be a tossup between Twilight and Pinkie, in large part because you really don't see cartoons addressing serious mental dysfunction, and they've displayed the most amusing breakdowns thus far.  Of the background crew, my icon says it all - Derpy's a blank slate upon which the fandom has been able to draw all sorts of silliness.  As for the rest of the questions, Scootaloo's overdue for an episode, I'm already reading Fallout: Equestria and have downloaded a few mods for the game, and I'd like to see everything become one with the herd.


What songs would you like to see used in a PMV?


All of them.  8,999,999,762 to go.

I'm surprised KMFDM's Son of a Gun hasn't been done.  The original video is a four-minute mix of sonic rainbooms and rainnukes, and the footage from Mysterious Mare Do Well would provide enough disaster footage beyond what's available in Swarm of the Century to do the original justice.


Fill in the Blanks: _______ is best pony, what is _____?


"Trollestia!  G1/G2/G3" :)

My universe was created by Faust, so I have insufficient data for an informed answer to the optional questions.

Now to provide some entertainment to anyone who waded through my answers. Because I couldn't find any respectable KMFDM PMVs...

That's why I made them optional, I knew you weren't familiar with the previous generations(except for tidbits of info from me). Where the old fart that is me(approaching 35 soon, well... that's not really old, but in comparison to some others on here, Woodus and Ponibooru it kinda seems like it) actually grew up in the 80s and saw some of the show and the movie(I'll be answering the questionnaire too here in a little while).

And speaking of the movie....

Here's Videomaster and Tsuki watching the My Little Pony movie from the 80s.

They commentary adds to it a bit for those who otherwise not care for it.

When did you get interested in My Little Pony?

On 4chan's /vp/(Pokemon board) of all places, someone had a "Show us your desktop thread", one of the posters should a MLP FiM background they had and mentioned that they watched. I went and checked it out of curiosity and really liked what I saw.

Who are your favorite ponies?

While I like all of the main 6, my main favorites are Fluttershy, Pinkie Pie and Twilight.

Who is your favorite background pony?

The unicorn that the fandom refers to as Colgate is my top favorite along with Derpy.

Who is your favorite Cutie Mark Crusader?

I like all three, but Scootaloo is edges out ahead as my favorite.

Celestia or Luna?

Luna

What crossovers would you like to see in fan works?

Some more Dragon Quest meets MLP would be nice, also Sakuri meeting them would be pretty sweet.

What characters from other series would you like to see ponified?

Kakihara and Ichi from Ichi the Killer and Sakuri from Demonophobia, without the gore preferably.

What songs would you like to see used in a PMV?

More Nirvana ones would be good and one set to Jonathan Coulton's RE: Your Brains, which would fit in good with the Story of Blanks flash game.... It would be awesome if someone made a flash animated video to it.

Fill in the Blanks: _______ is best pony, what is _____?

Fluttershy is best pony, what is True Capitalist Radio?

Who are your favorite ponies from the past generations?

Sweet Stuff, Masquerade, Twilight, Bow tie and Baby Moondancer

Are there any ponies you want to see in G4(current generation) style?

Sweet Stuff and Masquerade!

A member on Ponibooru, Kuren18 has been doing some Bum Reviews of the show. Here's one of them:

And now it's time for Bum Reviews with Chester A. Bum.

Tonight's Review:

My Little Pony, Family Appreciation Day.

OOOOH MY GOD THIS IS THE GREATEST EPISODE I'VE EVER SEEN IN MY LIFE!

My Little SPOILERS!

There's this old mare, named Granny Smith!

And she is one CRAAAAAZY WOMAN!

She made -me- feel like I had a normal upbringing!

She dresses up in a bunny suit and hops around singing the ABCs,

Talks to the bees as if they can understand her,

and paints random circles on the inside of her house!

And it's all in preparation for making marmalade out of these weird apples called Zap Apples!

Which I think are made of whatever lightning that we saw being used in the Eragon movie that made that dragon grow!

I always knew that movie was a precursor to My Little Pony!

It made about as much sense for existing as G 3.5!

But I digress.

So it turns out that Granny Smith is teaching Apple Bloom how to make the marmalade!

And Apple Bloom is like:

"Cool!"

But then Diamond Tiara and her dad come by, because it turns out that the dad is their biggest buyer of Zap Apple marmalade!

And Diamond Tiara is like:

"Like, wow, aren't you, like, embarrassed that Granny Smith does all these, like, crazy stupid things in public?"

And Apple Bloom is like:

"I never thought of that before... oh sh**."

So Granny Smith proceeds to embarrass Apple Bloom day in and day out!

And then at school, it's Apple Bloom's turn to bring a family member to school next week to talk to the class about what they do!

And Apple Bloom is like:

"Oh no! Applejack and Big Macintosh can't make it that day, so I'll have to be embarrassed by Granny Smith!"

But then her friends are like:

"Don't worry! We'll figure out a way to not have Granny Smith show up!"

So they try everything they can think of!

Faking sick,

Trying to do the work for Big Mac and Applejack so one of them can make it,

And pretending to have Granny Smith tell the teacher she can't make it!

I've done all those things, once!

It helped me escape from prison!

But when all that fails, Apple Bloom settles on trying to make Granny run off on a train!

But just when it seems Granny Smith won't show up, she suddenly does!

Apple Bloom and the CMCs brace for the worst!

Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon prepare to laugh!

And Granny Smith tells this big, epic story about how she helped found Ponyville with the help of her weird ways of making Zap Apple Marmalade!

And when she's done, the class is like:

-jawdrop, followed by Citizen Kane applause-

So the next day, everypony in the class is willing to help jump around in bunny suits and sing to the water with Granny Smith!

All except Diamond Tiara, who's forced to do so by her dad.

The End!

So this was a really cool episode!

And it gave me more fire fuel for my box: some Origins of Ponyville fanfics!

This is Chester A. Bum saying,

CHANGE! YA GOT CHANGE? Ah come on, help a guy out, will ya? Come on, change!

Come on, I promise I'll use it to buy some Zap Apple Marmalade and support the Apple family!

But not tonight.

No, tonight, having warmed up with Revenge of the Nerds (1984), and having just dug through the bowels of the Internet to find the answer to a question about a Snickers bar commercial that aired in 1988, I'm throwing up my hooves in a grand "non sequitur" to this thread - and to the universe at large - and officially proclaiming this as "80s night" in the Pony Thread:

Taco: Puttin' on the Ritz (Synthpop/New Wave, 1982).

The I Love Lucy chocolate-sorting gag is now officially three generations old, and it still brings the funny.

Speaking of recycling old content for new laughs, that brings us back to SOPA (there are probably people in the intellectual property business who'd demand royalties from Hasbro for having written that joke, never mind shutting down the Internet to prevent fans from referring to its source...)


Any media which accumulates an audience is also going to find its properties beng adopted, adapted and repurposed. One can stamp on molehills – shut down websites, deliver takedown notices to YouTube, ultimately sue your potential audience. Or one can find ways to use the momentum to promote the brand.

Cuteness level... over... nine... thousand...

Speaking of Fluttershy.  For those not keeping up, there's been an entire original music scene that's become part of the Cambrian Explosion of Internet Remix culture.  Take the lyrics and tune from the show, remix the ever-loving-hell out of the audio, and end up with everything from metal to dubstep to eurobeat to trance remixes.  I've touched on this before, but here are a couple of little gems I've overlooked.

Ask Princess who?!  (Yes, for those of you wondering, the Pony meme has its own dedicated niche in Ask X Tumblr blogs.  As you might imagine, the results are often hilariously NFSW.)

But back to the Super Bowl, the chimicherrychangas were great.  And despite some ridiculously-preventable penalties, it was a great game.  (There's another topic for more-than-a-decade - back in the mid-80s-90s, the Superb Owl was pretty much over by halftime.  The past decade has brought back some real nail-biters; the game itself has been worth watching for more than just the commercials.)

Karma to step-chan for bringing it in my absence -- I wound up falling down the rabbit hole of brony music the other night, and never made it back to the boards for a couple of days.

Brony music? 

Yeah, brony music.  Not merely ponifying existing musical tracks, but original compositions and remixes inspired by the show.

http://th00.deviantart.net/fs70/PRE/f/2012/032/c/c/brony_music_by_shadestars-d4oagw3.png

(clicky to embiggen)

So whenever DJ AlexS shows up, a song gets 20% cooler.  Ken Ashcorp's epic-from-the-start track from a couple of months ago is currently in its third remix (remix by DJ AlexS, additional rap by IBringDaLulz), and that's probably the seventh video of it that I've fullscreened and vegged-out to.

1RTlB8Hmcw0

...and the comments on YouTube... not so much.

6t45SzJDiGk

But to give you an idea of how the whole process starts and evolves, have some cupcakes.  It starts with something cute and simple like a song from the TV show's soundtrack (no frosting), and then you go for the the Eurobeat Brony mix (with frosting), and you either toss on the lyrical sprinkles from FluttershyElsa, or you skip the lyrical sprinkles and just loading up on frosting, confetti, and edible 8-bit sugar toppers from the likes of Dexter C. Ford, RainbowCrash88, and Kil6969, and you fully appreciate what it means to "Eat sugar.  See the future."

And I promise you this is the only post I'll make this month that will both involve ponies and cupcakes and remain both safe for work and for your sanity.  For those who are wondering WTF that last sentence was about, don't worry, you'll find out later.  I've... seen things you people wouldn't believe; a phoenix on fire off the shoulder of Fluttershy; I've watched magickal lazors firin' in the dark near the Celestial Gate.  All those moments will be lost in time, like bits in the cloud.

Meanwhile, if you hear something you like, MP3 downloads are typically made available from the artists via their YouTube comments, either via the usual cloud-based storage/distribution systems or through the artists' respective Bandcamp pages.

You've probably heard about the Derpy controversy. Yeesh! (Although it's mostly just overblown, it's nowhere near what people have been freaking out about)


Quite.  For those wondering WTF this is all about - some people took the appearance of a cross-eyed, clumsy pony with a deep silly voice as a slight against people with intellectual disabilities.  It's the natural outcome when you have a rabid fanbase, and a sub-subdemographic of that fanbase who are (justifiably) hypersensitive to these sorts of issues (purple text on right-hand-side of huge infographic).

http://www.welovefine.com/img/p/1710-4774-large.jpg

The character started early in the series as an anonymous randomly-generated background pony that got its eyes crossed as an animation error.  Fans noticed, gave her the nickname "Derpy" after her crosseyed appearance; yes, the word "derp" has connotations of stupidity, but the meme is as much about looking silly than it is about actual stupidity. 

In this case, people forgot that voice actors rarely, if ever, see the characters they're animating.  This is pretty much the only way to make animation work.  The voice actors are given the script and a storyboard, and only after the lines are recorded is it possible for the animators to synchronize the characters' lips to the recorded lines.

So when the voice actress was handed a script - not having any artwork of Derpy accompany it, and this being the first time in the series that the character was ever mentioned by name - she went with the notion that (the scene being a construction set) Derpy was male, and voiced her line in an uncharacteristically-deep voice.

And that's it.

I think it's fitting that a character born out of a minor animation glitch should cause such an out-of-proportion misunderstanding as a result of a second minor animation accident. 

And it's not only fitting, it's hilariously perfect, that the line in question - the first line this character has ever spoken - was "I just don't know what went wrong".

tl;dr?  A few fans misunderstood what happened, but my reaction was more along the lines of:

aSAwp4t_joE

Being misunderstood is what Derpy's all about!

It's because you have kids in the game at one point which you get to name. I ended up naming them after some G1 My Little Pony characters Danny and Surprise(I would have went with Spike and Rarity, but due to Spike's crush on her it would have felt awkward).

I think some of the out of hand stuff came from trolls(even one admitted that he/she/it/baked potato was trying to get the brony subculture booted by framing them with thread and image spamming all over the site, although considering the amount of riffraff and liars on there, it's hard to tell if that was true).

I remember the day the insane mod went on a rampage. I was at work at the time, so I didn't get hit by it. My posting on there in general was pretty rare(mainly Pokemon and Pony threads when I did), so odds were low that I would have been banned anyway.

I prefer Ponibooru anyway, same function as chan sites(imageboard), still allows anons and has account setups without needing tripcodes(like this site) and has less trolling issues(I rarely feed trolls, but I admit it got tiresome/boring/annoying after awhile with them).

With the previous trap(which hit the furries that went there), you can't blame anyone for being suspicious.

To be clear on the trap that claimed many a furry, I have no real opinion on what happened at that time, since I wasn't around the site during that controversy. I wasn't being negative myself, only relaying what I read from the others.

:D :D :D :D :D :D

I seen General Akbar quoted more than enough on EqD and Ponibooru on this.  ::)

And now, for fun, I'll deduce....  :D

(A randomized science experiment by Step-chan)

Whether or not it's a actually a trap!

It will depend on these things:

1. If Moot or any of his chaotic mods find the fandom disturbing(which would be the pot calling the kettle black, considering what I've seen on there in the past) or just plain hate them. I think this was a possible reason for the furry mass ban.

2. If Moot feels like doing it for the lulz.

3. If Moot has the lack of control over his mods like I think he does(also explains the bans early last year).

4. If Moot is a people pleaser to the whiners on there(and there are plenty of them).

5. If Moot feels like his site was important in what had started there and wants to increase traffic again(self importance/a claim to fame of sorts, this one supports the board not being a trap and considering the crazy mod attack last year causing new sites to be pop up... well...).

Note: I don't know Moot and I have no problems with him personally, just being lulzy with these theories.  :D

Ya know, Pokemon used to swamp the video game board there(although it was only about half as bad as the users were claiming), then Moot made /vp/ for the fans of Pokemon. I'm surprised it wasn't a trap as well, but then again I guess it would have been an extremely bad idea to ban a decent amount(although not as big as /b/ *shudder*) of traffic like that, which would be a decent theory for the MLP board not being a trap if it's like that.

It's still conceivable that it's not a trap.  Giving /mlp a home really would give the NFSW stuff a place, and wouldn't be entirely out of character for either community.  Question is, can the /mlp community get it together and get over the potential for self-generated drama?  Judging from the thread, I'm firmly on the side of "maybe", and there's much popcorn to be eaten between now and April 1st.

Oh, and disturbing?  Considering what I've seen from the voice actresses themselves...

Internet: Oh, have you not heard? It was my understanding that everyone had heard.
moot: Heard what?

I wasn't there for the other incident, but I have to admit it's not like some of the the /mlp hate wasn't earned.  I mean, it's not like Iwe haven't gone all Peter-Griffin's-favorite-song-ever about it all over this boarde Entire. Freaking. Internet. for the past year or so.

I remember that post by Tara Strong(I thought it was funny), BTW... Not MLP related, but Tara Strong related... As you know, one of the shows she did voice work in was Drawn Together(Princess Clara and Toots). I found out something that blew my mind...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Garbage_Pail_Kids_%28TV_series%29

She did the voice for a character(and some others) in the never aired(in the U.S., although it's available on DVD) Garbage Pail Kids cartoon. She also did the title role in Hello Kitty's Furry Tale Theater(which I just found out during this post).

I'm just doing a wait and see with it anyway(it will pop up on Ponibooru if it does) and possibility number 5 covers the board being legit instead of a lure.

As for disturbing, I was going more by those with the stereotypical thinking of what guys should be into, those who find it so unnerving that a guy could like anything like this. You know, the(borrowing Nirvana song titles for a moment) Mr. Moustaches and Very Apes of the world, I doubt Moot falls into that area though, I've seen videos of him before. I do remember someone on 4chan mentioning the craze going on to Moot. He wasn't paying any attention to it at the time(He said never heard of it).

Yeah, it would have been interesting to see her take it further, but that wouldn't have ended well.

Tara's voice for Twilight Sparkle is a lot like Princess Clara's(with a mild dash of Toots), so much so that when someone played audio of her from the movie on Radio Graffiti, Ghost thought it was My Little Pony and raged afterwards.

I looked at my bookmarks, it's Turnabout Storm. I was sleepy at the time and got lysdexic. (Huh huh)

I took another look at that EqD post on Moot's newest board.

I noticed the posts went like this(in no particular):

1. It's a trap! (Which we covered)
2. Users from 4chan saying not to come back, not welcomed there.
3. People dissing 4chan.
4. People defending 4chan.

Some of it boiled down to whether or not 4chan has any actual claim to the fandom that started(Which is why some wondered about the board being made in the first place).

And now.....

Hey, that reminds me, Nicole Oliver (Cheerilee's voice actress) - in Hearts and Hooves at 20:44 - "how sorry you are" sounds an awful lot like Stephanie D'Abruzzo (Kate Monster) in Avenue Q.  Probably just a coincidence based on similarity of roles, but arguably an inspiration.

Which is silly.  The record is pretty clear that it does.  Maybe not intentionally, but our own thread has links that corroborate it: it really did begin on the chans.  The fact that the historical record simultaneously infuriates both the most dogmatic of bronies and the most dogmatic of people from That Other Website makes me smile, smile, smile!

Maybe not intentionally is the best way to describe it.

While I was on 4chan at the time I found about, I wasn't on /co/, I was on /vp/. I credit 4chan for me finding out about it(the same if I would have found it about it on tvtropes, woodus, etc.) and that's it.

I'm also glad I wasn't on /b/ when FiM started, I went on there one time a long time ago...

Although I never posted on /b/, just looked through it. Yeah, the love and tolerance thing is an obvious counter troll tactic. I myself usually don't give trolls the time of day, unless I'm bored and wanting some lulz.

One thing last I'll say, while 4chan's reputation falls into the negative territory, I've seen good fun things going on there too. I've went on there a lot on and off, so obviously I haven't thought that low of it.

Not to say some 4chan scenarios haven't thrown me into mood-whiplash from time to time.

...and since Pinkie Pie has already done unspeakable things to the Fourth Wall, I'll sum up the whole Derpy Hooves controversy over the past weekend.  So they re-released the episode with the following change.

SdZvrs6lp3o

And I was all:

http://i.imgur.com/qXnvq.jpg

And the fanbase was all:

QMtQob9rMjg

As much as I'll miss Derpy (things like this are why I may or may not catch things before they fall down the memory hole), the fact is that we got our fanservice, and anyone who was there that day should be thankful they were there when Derpy became canon.  That the whole thing is unraveled because of an innocent mistake (a female voice actress mistakenly trying to do a male's voice) is what Derpy's all about.

tl;dr: "Careful, fanbase!  You don't want to do any more damage than you've already done.  In the name of Celestia, just sit there and do nothing!"

And now for something that'll actually make sense (this post has Pinkie Pie in it; you know I'm using the term loosely) to people who haven't been following the Save Derpy drama, I'm jumping back into the safety of the sort of thing that helped bring me into the herd in the first place:

While I mentioned on Woodus that I thought it was dumb(even those on woodus who aren't into the show felt that way), I do agree that the decision made was unfortunately unavoidable(so while I don't agree, I can understand that they were under pressure).

Plus, ol' Derpy isn't actually out of the show, at least according to one of the animators. But she will be out of focus a bit more(and for a while probably). I got the DVD earlier, the episode is uncensored on it(although there was a something of a derp in the first episode, and I don't mean Derpy Hooves, I'll explain later).

Tabitha(who also voices Rarity and Princess Luna) was the one who voiced her, and yeah, I remember her mentioning she thought the character was a male.

And for you old farts out there, I'm trying to catch up, so it's 80s night:

You can turn the dial back another couple of notches, and get some Pat Benatar:

wKY6QQ76Qm0

  - Pat Benatar, Hit Me With Your Best Shot, 1980

Cross the decade barrier:

WIN_-Kk5iiSE-0I

  - Pink Floyd, Run Like Hell, 1979

If you're feeling even more retro than that, say, something in a 1976 vintage, consider some BosHEY FOO!  STFU AND PLAY FREEBIRD!

yaX1EculZ3c

  - Lynyrd Skynird, Free Bird


Also, remember me mentioning the derp in the DVD...


Speaking of which, my actual research for todnight.  Derp's been around for at least ten years.  For example, the following word from South Park:

A8PA9KYLZKA
  - Rob Schneider, in Da Derp De Derp Da Teetley Derpee Derpee Dumb.

  - Audio track from South Park, The Biggest Douche In The Universe, first aired Nov 27, 2002.  This may not be the origin of the word "derp", but it probably the first widespread use of the word in pop culture.  A planetwide TV broadcast and some Internet redistribution inoculated millions of viewers' brains with the word "derp", and the rest was history.

Watched the episode earlier and had to catch up abit on Ponibooru image favoriting, mainly because of my nephew coming over(my account has nothing filtered, since I couldn't care less what I see uploaded, but my nephew doesn't need to see some of that stuff. My nephew does know that I watch the show), I also had to catch up on image fav'ing a couple of days ago. On Wednesday(and Thursday morning) I had to move things around to prepare for maintenance to spray for pests, so my internet leisure time was restricted for a little while.

I missed seeing this until tonight(it was uploaded over at least around Thursday, after I got off of there). It really made my day:

Oh man, I'm glad I'm not playing that game. My tolerance to alcohol isn't exactly good since I rarely drink(I also have to work in the morning anyway, as much as I would have loved to buy and drink some hard black cherry lemonades or a bottle of razzmatazz, I need not to be hung over). Thankfully I'm not a violent drunk.

And with that....

From Kuren18's post on Ponibooru(which seems to have finally gotten over it's strange speed issues throughout the week).

And now it's time for Bum Reviews with Chester A. Bum.

Tonight's review:

... What?

No, seriously, how do I pronounce this?

**** it. The one about the mystery on the train!

...

OOOOOH MY GOD THIS IS THE GREATEST EPISODE I'VE EVER SEEN IN MY LIFE!

Who did these SPOILERS?

There's this pony, named Pinkie Pie,

And she's bringing a cake Mr. and Mrs. Cake made to Canterlot to put in a competition!

And so since the technology of Equestria is in the 1800s... I... think...

The only way to get there is by train!

And so all of Pinkie's friends go with her on the way to Canterlot!

But then these three other chefs are coming with them with their own creations for the contest!

There's a French griffon,

An old donkey woman,

and Pony Joe!

And so they're all like:

"My treat is the best and it's going to win!"

"**** off! My treat is going to kick yours to Appleoosa!"

"Well, I'm French so I should surrender... but I won't because I'm unbelievably snooty!"

So Pinkie Pie decides to stand guard all night in front of the cake because she's afraid the other chefs will sabotage it!

But then she's distracted by three suspicious events during the night!

But it's OK, the cake appears to be fine.

Until the morning when Twilight wakes Pinkie up to point out that there are bites taken out of it!

-gasp-

So Pinkie immediately proceeds to accuse each of the chefs with some of the best made-up accusations ever!

The French griffon was an old-time silent film villain who tied Pinkie to the train track and cut the cake in half,

Pony Joe was James Bond and cut the cake with lasers,

And the old Donkey was a ninja!

I always knew Pony Joe was Equestria's James Bond!

-sings in the tune of the James Bond theme- Friendship is maaa-a-a-gic...

...And I love, do-o-nuts...

In fact, he's better than James Bond!

Nopony thought Pinkie was telling the truth!

And on the other hoof, everypony knows James Bond is a secret agent!

Every villain always knows he's coming, greets him by name, and knows his weakness is hot girls!

Actually, can I tell you a secret?

-whisper-

I'm a spy!

Nopony knows because I'm in disguise right now.

And I've been fired years ago.

But that doesn't stop me from finding drug dealers!

My dealers won't even know what's coming!

But I digress.

So Twilight tells Pinkie that her accusations are random and they need to look for clues!

But then the train goes into a tunnel and everything goes dark!

But when they leave the tunnel, all of the other treats have been eaten, too!

-gasp-

So Twilight takes Pinkie Pie around the train and looks for clues!

But Twilight finds three clues that... we don't get to see.

Horru.

But then Twilight knows who did-dun-do'd it!

So she calls in everypony and says:

"I found this BLUE FEATHER!"

-gasp-

"And this PINK HAIR!"

-gasp-

"And this FAKE EYELASH!"

-faints-

"Which means Rainbow Dash, Fluttershy, and Rarity all took bites out of the cake!"

OH MY GOD I knew Rarity was a klepto!

No wonder she has all those gems! She pulled heists to get half of them!

I need to go ship myself with her when I'm done. I could get a lot of change for that!

But then that still leaves the mystery of who ate the other desserts in the tunnel!

And I'm like:

"Well there's only one pony left it could be... APPLEJACK!"

But, it turns out that each of the other chefs ate each others' desserts.

So all this while Applejack is like:

"Y'all are crazy!"

So the chefs put what's left of their desserts together to make one big dessert for the contest!

And Pinkie writes a letter about not jumping to conclusions!

And then Celestia is about to eat some cake!

And I'm like:

"NO! Haven't you read the tabloids? Everypony thinks you're fat!"

But then Pinkie Pie eats the entire cake in one bite!

So then I'm like:

"Oh, okay."

The end!

So I really liked this episode!

Except it made me really hungry.

I think I'm going to go read the fanfiction I wrote where I shipped myself with Pinkie Pie!

We ate so much cake and sweets...

This is Chester A. Bum saying,

CHANGE? YA GOT CHANGE? Ah come on, help a guy out, will ya? Come on, change!

Well at least get me a donut! I need to appease Pony Joe so he doesn't suspect that I'm on to him!

Ah well, I can't has a pony yet, but at least I got donuts!

At $7500, Twilight Sparkle is most expensive pony.  Lauren Faust's recent sketches of what Firefly and Medley would look like in FiM are nothing short of awesome.

With just under 24 hours to go in this weekend's charity auction, there's plenty of somewhat-more-affordable animation joy (from the 50s to the present) up for grabs.  Backstory is at Faust's DA Page and the official site.

At $9100 final, it's appropriate that she went for OVER NINE THOUSAND!  Others were also well into four-digit ranges.  Stunning.  Well-done, Internets!

Yes, these are what they look like.  The thickness of lines between characters indicate the number of pairings between characters in fan fiction tagged "Romance" on FIMFiction.net and "Shipping" on Equestria Daily.  The datasets only include on "shipping" (basically, PG-rated, safe-for-work writing about fictional relationships, as in it does not include the Rule 34 stuff).

Big Mac x... Granny SmitNO!

If you think I'm googling "When I saw Pikachu turn Japanese" at this hour, you're sadly mistaken.  You gotta do that sorta stuff on your own time :)

http://i1.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/original/000/102/190/SAFEWORD.png

Warning: Read that disclaimer below the video before you click "Play", especially if you're at work.  SFW video, NSFW audio, and will really piss off the HR department if they catch you laughing at it.

1LSZyd801-s

  - Warning: The preceding Pony parody of this Parody of 90s Sexual Harassment workplace videos is NSFW.  (As is the original parody that inspired it! :)

(Sexual harassment is inexcusable and unprofessional, but so was the scam of thousands of HR consultants making a multibillion dollar industry out of artificially-contrived scenarios involving people who can't act, on cheaply-filmed VHS tape.  Pay the consultant a few thousand dollars to air the cheezy video, get your employees to sign a statement saying that you paid the consultant to show you the video, and who cares about whether your employees act like douchebags to each other - the victim can't sue you and win.  Paying a consultant a few grand to waste a few hours of your employees' time is cheap insurance, as long as it immunizes the employer from the lawsuits.  Even the HR department doesn't care - it gets paid to figure out which consultant gets paid the few thousand bucks to tell the employees what they already know, and then it goes back to doing whatever it is that HR departments do when bored.)

But if you worked in an office in the early 90s (after the fallout from the Clarence Thomas/Anita Hill scandal), you'd still be hard pressed to tell the first half of this parody from the real thing.  It's a really well-crafted parody.  The first two 15-second examples of harassment were probably taken word-for-word from real-world instructional videos.  And then it goes all terribly, horribly, NSFWly, hilariously wrong.

Pikachu doesn't have to turn Japanese, since he/she already is... Oh wait.  :D

I never actually heard of that video parody before. In some ways, it reminds me of the old anti-drug campaigns in the 80s and 90s. I'm trying to find the some My Little Pony ones(like the video you just posted), but I guess no one has thought to do those commercials to FiM footage.

The logic of the earlier ones are hilarious if you think about the fact that they used the Aggresive Drug Dealer trope in them. Most drug dealers are way smarter than trying to be pushy(which could get them caught) or offer drugs for free(which is the equivalent of burning money).

I am a grown-ass man, and I really enjoy this show about cartoon ponies, which is ostensibly made for 6-year-olds.

...

Sincerity is a dying art in our culture. It’s really hard to do a story where, say, the power of love saves everybody’s lives, because that’s the sort of thing that’s just not done anymore. We’re past that. We’re beyond cynical and well into jaded. We stopped believing in the sorts of good, old-fashioned, hyper-earnest values so much of our entertainment used to be based on somewhere in the 1960s and probably even earlier than that. That’s probably good. Love doesn’t really last forever, and you can’t change the world simply by trying to be a good person, and everybody’s going to die, whether we like it or not. Approaching the world with just a touch of jaded cynicism is recommended for all.

But what’s wrong with wanting to believe all of the above things are lies? What’s wrong with telling our kids that there’s nothing more wonderful than the moment when someone says they’ll love you forever, even if that’s an impossibility, given who we are? What’s wrong with telling them that doing good things is something that will have impact far beyond yourself and your immediate friends and neighbors? And what’s wrong with believing in these things just a little bit yourself? It’s like those newspaper columns you see every Christmas, where somebody tries to argue that Santa’s really real so long as we keep his spirit in our hearts. We know it’s bull*poop*, and we return to thinking so on December 26, but why not spend a little time dwelling on the better parts of our natures?

...

My Little Pony acknowledges to its target audience of 6-year-old girls that, yes, they can be anything they want to be, be that the more athletic Rainbow Dash or the fashion-oriented Rarity. But at the same time, the series acknowledges that this idea is a little bit scary, that growing up is an isolating thing that can make you feel all alone, that it’s sometimes hard to make friends and just as hard to keep them. Yet buried down within that is a message that cuts across all ages: If we just tried to be a little bit better to each other, wouldn’t everything run that much more smoothly? That’s a language both kids and their parents can speak.

Well, Google Maps solves that problem, but yeah, a 7-mile walk would require some serious dedication.  Looks like the location is a shopping mall. 

For anyone too busy, too far away, or even for those still in the stable, just find your local meetup group, and know (with apologies to Buckaroo Banzai) that wherever you go, the herd is there.

And now, some news from the world of fine art:  If you had $119,900,000 to spare, you could have picked up the only up-for-auction version (one of four; the other three are in public galleries) of Edvard Munch's The Scream last night.  I'll save y'all a few bits...

http://th05.deviantart.net/fs70/PRE/i/2012/123/f/0/silent_scream_by_anthropony-d4yg8iv.png

...since I don't have $119.9M kicking around either.  (I couldn't convince myself to scrape up OVER $9,000 for Twilight Sparkle and a good cause) 

So we'll go a bit downmarket:

I was always partial to the girl with a pearl earring.  Because even adjusted for inflation since 1881, I could probably have scraped together the two guilders and thirty cents it cost des Tombe to rescue the 1660s original.

And because we covered Salvador Dali in the cameo at 9:21 in Season 2, Episode 9, Sweet and Elite, last December.

7 miles is bit much, although I've walked close to 5 in one day(just not nonstop).

Kind of a shame it isn't closer. The farthest north I ever went was to Castleton square mall(This was to a Pokemon mall tour).

I also tend to work weekends most of the time anyway, it would have been too late to request Saturday off by the time I saw your post with the link. The latest day for requests is Tuesday at around noon. We're supposed to have the next week schedules up on Thursdays, but with the previous co-manager, we were lucky to have it up on Friday night at the earliest(Saturdays were often the day he finally got it done, far more often than not, unfortunately).

Now to something more pony related, kind of.

While waiting to get my DS charger back, I decided to start a new playthrough of Pokemon Leafgreen, I named my character Rarity(I chose the girl) and picked Bulbasaur(named it Spike).

OK, that's downright epic.  It's one thing to do it in Photoshop, it's quite another to sculpt something like that in 3D using figurines and modeling/sculpting tools.

Good news is you've still got time for gaming.

(5/5/12 ~ I made this comment about the Dali, with the "little pony" (huge horse) with all the elephants behind it being stymied by the Christian on the ground. I guess I put it in a little late to show up as such!!)

I looked at a Wiki for Ponymon, looks like 12 element types(out of the original 17 types, I guess they're not using all of them, although I wouldn't quite know what else to add either) and a great deal of evos for them(probably due to the lower number of ponies vs pokemon).

For some reason that outfit fits Fluttershy well.

As for Luna...

I do work on Saturday next week.

I figure I'll post what my MLP themed team is on so far on Pokemon Leafgreen.
Trainer- Rarity

Ivysaur- Spike
Jigglypuff- Pinkie Pie (This is first for me)
Dugtrio- Bon Bon

I'm trying to figure out what else to train(it's the original 151 dex).

Jolteon came to mind, but I don't what I want to train for in the Water type and Fire type area.

And now I'm not sure I want to train up a Jolteon, this is mainly due to me not having another good physical attacker.

From Zerg Rush, to my 14,000th post! ;D

I've got most of my team together now in Pokemon Leafgreen....

Team Rarity!

Spike the Venusaur
Pinkie Pie the Jigglypuff (can't wait until she learns Hyper Voice, yes that is a move in the game)
Bon Bon the Dugtrio
Applejack the Jolteon
Pound Cake the Slowbro (It took awhile to fish up a Slowpoke, geez... )

The rival's name is Stan, which is one of the few names I used not referencing My Little Pony(instead being from Revenge of the nerds).

And now a little crossover art

Funny, enough... the image I'm refering to on Ponibooru isn't filtered, then again... it's not gory per say...

Meanwhile, here's something just about as creeptastic as Demonophobia, because it was inspired by real life:

The poster campaign was part of a post-9/11 campaign for security on public transit in London, a major city in EnglandAirstrip One.  How better to get the citizens to accept the panopticon than to tell them that it's to make them safe?

Ponibooru is still down, crap.

Well, I'll post about of couple of things.

I currently started a playthrough of Pokemon Ruby, using a My Little Pony theme in naming the characters. This time using generation 1 names.

Trainer: Firefly
Grovyle: Teddy
Hariyama: Gusty
Swellow: Whizzer
Plusle: Masquerade

Also have:
Azumarill: Powder (Temporary until I can catch the water type I want)

Five Zigzagoons: Ace, Patch, Rep, Clover and Starlight (HM utility and item pickup)

I don't have the full team planned though and I'm going to be a bit more lax in playing it.

I also posted in the Worst Thread Ever a parody rom hack idea I have for Demonophobia(had it since last year at least). While I have no rom programming abilities, I felt it was interesting to share nevertheless.

Subject: Re: What is up with the My Little Pony fad?

Written By: Step-chan on 06/01/12 at 9:33 pm

Figure I'd transfer the post over here....

Title: Meme-monophobia!

Story: A crazy rouge 4chan moderator with an unhealthy hatred of the Brony fandom does a ritual to send one down into the underworld.

Three things he didn't realize would happen:
1. He gets dragged down there as well, although this also allows him to kidnap the mane cast of the show.
2. Ghost from True Capitalist Radio ended up as part of the deal. (The Shadow Memers requested it)
3. He was targeting Sethisto of Equestria Daily, but ended up snagging me, Step-chan!

Step-chan runs into Ghost and they form an enemy mine type of alliance to get out of there.

The differences would be obvious. There would be deaths that could happen to my character in it, but they would be far more comical(for the most part, a small amount would be comically disturbing). Also, where as Sakuri's deaths were more of hindrance, in the parody hack the deaths would be a Chekov's gun at the end of the game. This makes intentionally triggering the deaths a good idea for the final boss fight. Also my character has far more ways of fighting back. The underworld is also a bright and sunny place, instead of a gloomy dungeon.

The bosses would be based around the seven deadly sins, but with a far more meme and pop culture edge to them. While some of them will follow on what the original one's attack patterns are and such, some would actually have to be changed up, since my character will actually have to fight them all and not just survive until the end of the battle.

1st boss: The Ghost of Decadeology (Envy)
Differences: Sakuri just had to get across the hall that had Leviathan in it without running, sometimes she had to duck to avoid it. In the case of Decadeology, I have to attack it by hurling animated pictures of David Hasslehoff that appear all around the hallway at it.
2nd boss: Shed.mov Fluttershy (Wrath)
Differences: Sakuri had to switch the sealing stars to weaken Satan and then survive for the count of 40 and then get out of there before he fired his lazor at ground level. In the case of Shed.mov Fluttershy, I have to throw buckets on her head, covering her eyes, several times(until the police arrive).
3rd boss: The Ghost of Action 52 (Greed)
Differences: In what is the most tame boss in Demonophobia, Sakuri just had to survive for the count of 50 and avoid the smoke flying around the room (get hit too many times, she turns to stone). With Action 52, I also have a countdown to deal and getting hit by it with slowing make me glitch out(too many times will make me glitch to death). I have to attack it with Game Genie devices that act as bombs and hit it enough times before the counter runs out or else it's poor poor glitchy me.
4th boss: Anonymous/if someone can give me a better idea, let me know (Sloth)
Differences: Sakuri had to hit Belphegor with orbs to defeat it. To defeat Anonymous, I have to strike it with the staff of identity multiple times.
5th boss: Anthro style Gardevoir (Lust)
Differences: Hoo-boy, Asmodeus is the first WTF boss in Demonophobia. Sakuri had to get a special knife to stab it in the first phase and then survive bullet hell in the second phase(count of 40), then leave before it pulled a spoil sport tactic. With Gardevoir, I have to obtain the Rev up those Garys bazooka and shoot it repeatedly in both phases, then leave before it does a similar sore loser tactic.
6th boss: The King of Town (Gluttony)
Differences: Sakuri has to escape from Beelzebub before the counter runs out, enough said. I have to launch bags of peas into The King of Town's mouth before the timer runs out.

In the final area, I have my own special powers that develop, giving me much more battling options.

7th boss The dubs get dude (Pride)
Differences: Sakuri first had to lead Lucifer into fire and ice traps to stop it from chasing her, then battled it using a fire and ice weapon. I have to lead dubs get dude into a triple and quintuple get post, then Chris-Chan emerges from the costume. All I have to do is battle him with my own fighting skills and weapons.

Then I have to fight Ghost(the only way for him to leave the underworld is battle to my character), Ghost mainly uses a gun in the fight.

Final Boss 4chan moderator
This is where the Chekov's gun comes into play, during the first round I fight him with my own abilities. After his first defeat, he foolishly restore the memories of the deaths I suffered. It actually powers me up and causes me to change form(with the strongest ones being The Tick and Ichi the Killer, the lower powered ones include transforming into Sakuri and Bonkers the cat). The final phase's difficulty is based on which form I take(The more deaths, the more powerful the transformation), although he's still a joke to battle, even if I'm changed into Sakuri.

This is based around and parody from the final fight and ending of the original game, Sakuri ends up with the memories of all her deaths restored after defeating Ritz.

Anonymous and the method for defeating it is actually placeholder at the moment, as I have no idea what represents Sloth meme wise. Also why I asked for some advice, as even I felt it wasn't the best idea either.

Decadeology was an easy one for envy, although it wouldn't look like it, you have to consider some of the decadeologists asked for a while back(which I have no problem with myself, if I actually hated decadeology, I wouldn't have made it a boss). Also the David Hasselhoff image as a weapon was an obvious one.

Shed.mov Fluttershy for wrath, considering what she did in the parody fits , no further explanation.

Action 52 as greed, I imagine you might have read up on why the game was made, it fits too well. I also wanted a boss that would have a similiar affect to Mammon, but replace the turning to stone with turning into a glitch(which wouldn't be an actual glitch in the game).

Anthro style Gardevoir as Lust. Rule 34, enough said. Also the Rev up those Garys is a reference to what some 4chan users would do when someone would start rule 34 threads(by posting pictures of Gary Oak).

King of Town as Gluttony was way too easy, also his hatred for peas.

The dubs get guy was an easy one for Pride, due 4chan users wanting attention, trolling, etc. Originally Chris Chan didn't enter the equation(I don't remember what true form I was originally thinking of was going to be). If you've ever heard of him, he thinks he has no flaws, has caused problems for others in real life and in general has been a target for trolls(others have tried to white knight for him, but gave up after awhile, realizing it was a lost cause).

Something I realized yesterday, Anonymous would be ideal as Meme-monphobia's version of the Shadow People(the ones in Demonophobia who treat Sakuri's ordeals and trials as a game for their entertainment).

Actual sloths aren't what I had in mind, although things like "Deal with it" and "No U" sound somewhat closer to the meme form of Sloth. But what would I personify it as? That's where the conundrum comes in.

Well, I don't blame ya on that. If it ever happens, I don't want the gore associated with it. But with the game being what it is, the probability for use of gore would be pretty high if ponified.

I also check from time to time myself. (Checks and runs into Haruhi, funny enough my Victini's current nickname, in ponified form)

What's funny is with Cupcakes, Story of the Blanks(the tame thing on this list) and fluffy pony homicide(among other freaky or disturbing things I've saw over the past months); Demonophobia and Ichi the Killer crossovers wouldn't be anything most artists would be above.

This had been up for a long while on Ponibooru, well before I registered there. I wasn't even aware of it being there, I feel silly now.

I could probably do a cute Sakuri pony with the generator, since I'm sensible enough not to use disturbing elements from the game.

Anyway... I had been watching this LP of a badly translated version of Pokemon Crystal lately. The things these people read would be hilarious in FiM dub overs.

Yeah, Ichi the Killer is a violent manga about a psycho that's a massive adult child, all due to the severe bullying he suffer growing up. Kakihara, is one of the other characters in the series, he's the villain protagonist. It also spawned a movie. The manga actually got banned in certain parts of Japan, amazingly. I found it easier to read Ichi the Killer than seeing screenshots/watching LPs of Demonophobia(And there are plenty of disturbing and brutal elements in Ichi the Killer).

Ahh, someone made an edit of the original comic there(If I remember correctly, it involved furries).

  - Rush, Redainbow Barchetta.

And on the other side of the Atlantic...

Jump to the ground as the turbo slows to cross the borderline,
Then run like the wind as excitement shivers up and down his spine,
But in his garage, his parents don't know about his new machine,
For two or three years, twenty percent cooler's now his dearest dream.

He now applies the custom wrap upon his shining car,
A brilliant yellow Lotus from a better vanished time,
Ooh, fire up the willing engine, responding with a roar,
Tires spitting gravel, he commits his weekly crime...

WELCOME TO THE HERD, Andrew W.K.:

I almost feel like, rather than Pinkie Pie being me in pony form, I’m Pinkie Pie in human form. With respect to the legacy and the entire phenomenon, and to other fans of My Little Pony, and the Bronies out there — I would never be so bold to say that I was in front of Pinkie Pie. Pinkie Pie is in front of me. I was born, technically speaking, before Pinkie Pie was born, but I still feel like she has been the originator of this party spirit, and I am just a humble follower.

Well, today I found out why the decline in modding happened, Ponibooru(due to personal problems, nothing else) is going to shut down in August.

Fortunately, the bulk of images is being sent to Derpibooru. I also started saving my prefered favorites from Ponibooru.

I'll miss Ponibooru, but he did a great thing by making .torrents of everything available.  Site goes down, but the archives now belong to the world and are mirrored on countless hard drives.  For better or worse.

Time for a True Pony Confession:

My most embarassing "Rabid Idiot Brony Moment" was shortly after I discovered this little parody:

http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m091kfta8S1r2yxu9o1_1280.png

(click to make legible)

...and was puzzled to see that someone had PMV'd it to Giggle at the Ghostie, when it's plain as day that this was meant to be sung to Singing Telegram!

9bIQ8DpGHnk

  - Never mind Drunk Celestia, ask Berry Punch about got her 7000th follower!

(OK, that was horrible.  Funny, but horrible.)  But now that you all know the words, here's the good remix:

Fxw18K65kMY

  - Eurobeat Brony's Singing Telegram (Postal Mix Extended) (MP3s available in both instrumental and vocal remixes. Even if you aren't one with the herd, if you enjoy dance music, give this one a try. This guy's techno could have filled a floor at any time from 1990 to the present.  I swear on Celestia's mane, if you didn't know where it came from, you'd think it was found in a thread of random 90s rave/high-NRG/techno/eurobeat stuff.)

And right now, the presence of the instrumental version on my hard drive, plus that .gif up there, plus the fact that I can't sing, is why the entire Internet is grateful tonight.  (And if I'd tried to sing it, it'd also be why my neigh-boors hate me ;)

That was nice of him, although I've been going through my favorites mainly(easier for me, I tend to be a little pickier). All I have left are Rarity and Rainbow Dash to go through(and I did go through a lot of matches with my favorites, ranging from Derpy to Luna to Velvet, CMC and obviously the mane cast which is where I'm at).

It's a good thing there's Derpibooru, I'll be doing an account there soon, just wanting to finish up saving my biggest favorites(I favorited over 4,000 images on there, although what I'm saving is only going to be about 400+).

I've seen that 4chan post before.

The original is decent(and makes sense), then the Rabid Idiot Brony and Rabid Idiot Hater uploads became a war after awhile, but I did kind of find some of it amusing.

Some examples:

As I said, I did get some amusement out of it, but it did get to be kind of meh after a while.

Where was I?

Oh, today on Derpibooru, I uploaded some images, mainly of Dark Tsubaki's G4 remakes of My Little Pony Tales.

Like a boss!

http://i1178.photobucket.com/albums/x361/MLP-Step/clover.jpg

Here's an sample of Dark Tsubaki's G4 art. ^

It took me a little time as well, as I was trying to make sure the tagging was properly done, also went and re-editted after finding the sources.

There was something that went on Derpibooru earlier this week, they decided to ban fluffy pony content, mainly due to the abuse stuff involved with it.

http://img.ponibooru.org/_images/83cea79d169c6573f3654c4b9a80f004/196826%20-%20artist%3Amarcusmaximus%20cute%20fluffyshy%20fluffy_pony%20fluffy_pony_art%20fluffy_pony_original_art%20fluffy_pony_pic%20fluttershy%20wingboner.png

(An example of a clean non-abusive pic)

The head mods then realized that they didn't quite get the feedback from all the mods there, so while the ban is still on at the moment, they decided to have a survey to find out what the users thought. Whether they decide to remove the ban or not is up in the air.

As for my stance, I don't care for the fluffy abuse pics, but have no beef with anyone uploading them. I just ignore said images.

Same reaction here.  It wouldn't be the internet without... well, things that shouldn't be.  Much like The Lyra Plushie, most of the fun was in seeing it repurposed for completely innocent things, like oven mitts and beer coolers.  But it wouldn't be funny if it weren't wrong.

Speaking of wrong (and a little more comprehensible for those reading this who haven't gone quite that far past the point of no return), the demented geniuses at HotDiggetyDemon have another one out.  For those keeping score, that's five ponies down, one to go:

Do any of you know when Season 3 is supposed to come out?


Nope.

Season 2 started on Sept 18th 2011, so based on the number of weeks after Labor Day, I'll put two bits down on September 16th.  Until then...

I found another Lollipop Chainsaw crossover here.

One of the best ones I've seen of it IMO. (As for linking it this way, I'm just trying to make a habit of not using Derpibooru's bandwith)

Also found this little err... nugget of humor.  :D

I've checked 4chan recently to see if the /mlp/ board is up.

It still is, which does surprise me somewhat. I guess Moot was being sincere in that sense.  :D

And speaking of being surprised....

That Sweet Stuff image was actually around for at least a little bit. Long enough that I'm surprised it wasn't uploaded to Ponibooru while they were still up, I only saw it just recently myself.

I'm guessing no one knew of it for the most part because no one posted it on Derpibooru either.

Fortunately, I fixed that. It's actually one of two I found with Sweet Stuff, the other being this one which has others like Twilight and Wind Whistler, and human versions of Flim and Flam.

Edit: Finding a little bit more of Sweet Stuff in general. Not too sure if I want to upload some of to Derpibooru though.

Something else I stumbled upon...

Remember me mentioning that Tara Strong did some voices on The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3?

Well, it turns out that Tabitha St. Germain also did a voice on the same cartoon. Kootie Pie Koopa to be exact, who was the biggest whiner on the show. That makes the episode "A Dog and Pony Show" that much more hilarious.

She did a lot of anime English dubbing too.

Edit: Saw you applaud comment. It surprised me too. I've been watching the annotated series for the SMB3 cartoon on Youtube. It's the same one that I found out about Tara Strong's roles in the show(the annotated series for the SMB3 cartoon happened before MLP FiM aired).

I was searching through Youtube to see if anything songs in particular were PMV'd.

While I did stumble onto a clip of a Gunther song after seeing that the Fighting is Magic game has more videos from a recorded stream, I noticed that some songs have been neglected.

The list:

Mummers Dance by Loreena Mckennitt
Cold Day in the Sun by the Foo Fighters
This is the Life by Amy Mcdonald
Various Nirvana songs

I'd also like to see some of Kurt Cobain's FM demo songs, although that's highly unlikely due to it those being liked by obscure loving types like myself(I could just picture a Class of 86 PMV).

Speaking of the certain aspects of Fan Dumb, you remember the Turnabout Storm series? Some people actually posted negative comments to the voice actress of Applebloom in the Phoenix Wright/Friendship is Magic crossover, who happens to be 9 years old. Umm, yeah(idiots)... she quit temporarily(until a bunch of other people showed their support to her). Due to all this, the creator has cancelled the planned sequel(she's still finishing this story though) and making a fan game in it's place.

I didn't bother listening to the broadcast(instead opting to look through the comments on EqD, with Howard Stern I know what to expect).

As for the the laws with Fan Dumb, the one I belong to with the least problems in that regard is the Dragon Quest fandom(due to the overall smaller total of people in it internationally).

And now, I remembered there was a Nirvana ponified image, this one to be exact. While trying to find the artist who did it(no source was found), I found these three images and uploaded them along with the first one I linked here.

Also, a little question for you.

What do you get when you cross Fluttershy with a Pokemon?

Answer here.

I have watched Ponies Anthology 2. The only problem I have with it is that they didn't divide it into smaller vids(which is an issue when having slower internet). I'll post a list of my favorite parts of it in my next post.

Ah, you're not the first to say that about animator and show creator Lauren Faust.

Under most circumstances, we'd hit it like...

...well, like that, except that not only is she married, her husband's Craig McCracken, creator of Powerpuff Girls and Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, and between those two properties and My Little Pony:Friendship is Magic, no fan of animation would ever want to get in the way of that kind of awesome.

And this is how she rolls:

Yeah, I still have a huge pile of notes to cross-reference on the Anthology Mk.

While I thought the Dawn of pony/odyssey stuff was kind of neat, it also went over my head. This is due to me never seeing the original version.

And now.... The funniest/most boring trolling attempts I've seen aimed at the Brony fandom!

These will be listed by site and by what I remember trolling and counter wise, it won't be way too in depth.

4chan: This one has the most troll attacks I seen while I stilled lurked there.

1. Some trolling went down at one point in one of the general threads on /co/. One of the trollers said to another user that he hoped the dude would get broken into. The user said this: "The last two people to try that were met with a shotgun at the door, you're welcome to try if you like". Of course, a lot of people on trolling side didn't believe the dude, so he posted a picture of his gun with that day's date and a title that said "My little shotgun, buckshot is magic". Needless to say, the troll pretty much called him a baby. To which he said "I thought you wanted to see my gun".

Of course, the trolls twisted this into claiming he was threatening to shoot them the next day.

2. This one was a troll thread on /co/ dissing the FiM fandom. I don't remember how the conversation exactly went, but the troll replied to one of the users' responses telling them "This is why you don't have any friends" and then said something about having to do the "social dance".

I need to know this: What the heck is a social dance? It sounds too funny to me to actually exist, at least in the way the troll meant.

3. The second to last one that I remember from 4chan. This one guy ended raging on one of the general threads. This revolved around a couple of themes in general. He told the fans that when others find out that they like the show and get diss/put down/etc. that they will deserve it. He also mentioned that the high school crap(cliques, popular, so on) doesn't die after going into the real world, he also mentioned that appearance is all that matters, even in the real world.

What I found funny about this one is his exaggerated claims. While it is true that some people never truly grow up after high school, there are others who end up not caring about the social norms of high school anymore after graduation. There have been people I knew that ended up apologizing to me for the treatment they gave me and others who ceased picking on me and actually treated me good. I do remember one instance where some dudes in a car(who apparently thought they were still in high school) decided to pick on me(although I denied my name, I don't tell my name to people I don't remember, they even threatened to beat me up).

4. This last one is actually a boring one. This one dude kept posting avatar images he slightly altered each time to troll the general thread. Some of the others mentioned that it would cause the thread max out more quickly and another one would have to be started(he thought it was reverse psychology, in reality it was just a fact).

This one does make me think of the fact that some of the complainers actually kept tabs on the amount of the threads that were made each day. While it is true that a lot MLP generals were started each day, part of it was due to different users being on at different times, thus no slowdown. However, some of it was also the fault of the trolls and complainers constantly spamming sage posts, gore and troll images. While the total number of threads daily would have still been high, they would have been around maybe 25% lower in total if not for the trolls.

:D

Continued in the next post. (I need to get something to drink)

Equestria Daily:

This one I'll never forget. What's really funny about it is that the trolls failed.

It involved a voting that was going on for a MLP episode marathon. These trolls decided to pile a massive amount of votes(by using an obscene amount of proxies) on one of the episodes that has gotten a lot of disdain by part of the fandom. The episode in question was "The Mysterious Mare Do Well". I didn't think the episode was bad myself, however some fans of Rainbow Dash disagree.

The mods actually caught the mass votes for the episode due to it smelling of proxy abuse.  :D

Ponibooru:

I know a good amount of trolling went down there. I don't remember the older ones all that well, but the last two in general are clear due to them being not too far before the site closed.

These in question are both the Rabid Idiot Brony meme and the Dolan image spamming(there has also been gross image spamming as well). While I felt both were pretty meh in general, a problem came to pass when the mods didn't clear the spam off of the site, mainly because they had abandoned it for the most part, leading to the site closing.

Derpibooru:

Someone spammed the Rabid Idiot Brony meme not too long ago. This ended in failure though, as the mods deleted the images. If you're wondering why they did that, it's because the site has a rule against posts and images that are attacks/inflammatory/etc. in nature and considered the RIB meme(at least the captions of the ones uploaded) broke that rule.

That's it for the moments in trolling, now I have some more images to link:

Do the mario!

BTW, I'd like to see someone ponify Toad:

While I thought the Dawn of pony/odyssey stuff was kind of neat, it also went over my head. This is due to me never seeing the original version.


The original movie also a little more sense if you've read the novel - but consider that someprimate had to be the first creature to use a tool, and that the first tool was probably a weapon. The rest, as they say, is history.  (And the other part of the gag was that 2001: A Space Odyssey was an incredibly beautiful and incredibly long movie.)


2. This one was a troll thread on /co/ dissing the FiM fandom. I don't remember how the conversation exactly went, but the troll replied to one of the users' responses telling them "This is why you don't have any friends" and then said something about having to do the "social dance".

I need to know this: What the heck is a social dance? It sounds too funny to me to actually exist, at least in the way the troll meant.


Doing The Social Dance:

You: "Yo, how's it going?"  (You don't really want to know how your co-worker is.)
Co-Worker: "Not bad, how are you?" (Your co-worker doesn't really want to know how you are.)
You: "Good.  See the Olympics ceremonies?" (Even if you didn't watch.)
Co-Worker: "Caught the highlights, not bad." (Even if he didn't watch.)
You: "Well, got my coffee now, off to a meeting!" (My co-worker is part of my tribe.)
Co-Worker: "Yup, have a good one!" (My co-worker is part of my tribe.)

Brony Doing The Social Dance:

Brony: "Well, got my coffee now, off to a meeting in ten seconds flat!" (My co-worker is part of my tribe, but is he or she part of the Herd?)
Brony Co-Worker: "Eeyup." (My co-worker just got 20% cooler.)

Not Doing The Social Dance:

Non-Brony: "Hi, how's it going?"
Non-Social-Dancer: "Wife divorced me last night, and our two kids have cancer."
Non-Brony: "Umm... I'm sorry, I didn't know."

Brony Not Doing The Social Dance:

Rabid Idiot Brony:  "...but least I've got ponies!  Man, you shoulda seen how Applejack trolled Celestia the other weekend, saying she was right all along and didn't learn a thing!"
Non-Brony: "Celes-wut?"

The Brony fanbase is even more manic and obsessive than the early '90s Warner Bros. fanbase was, but the WB fanbase was enabled by the same force that made MLP popular: the Internet, although back in the day it was USENET newsgroup alt.fan.cartoons.  Still, I think everypony can see a little bit of themselves in this:

Didn't think of that myself(it was a cup of water in my case, pretty humid that night).

Co-Worker: "Yup, have a good one!" (My co-worker is part of my tribe.)


That seems like a match of one version of it. It reminds me of when a co-worker asked me if I watched the football game. Instead of giving a phony answer like "yes", I started forcibly laughing and said "no". If there is one thing I always remind others of, it's my lack of interest in sports.

I'm trying to remember what the other user said in the troll thread, to get the "social dance" response. Of course, the troll's idea of the "social dance" might have also had an edge of "don't be yourself and just fit in".

Well, there are a couple of quotes I can counter that with:

1. I'd rather be hated for what I am than loved for what I'm not. (Kurt Cobain)
 
2. I'd rather be happy in exile than miserable in acceptance. (a user on iichan actually posted this one)

Number 2 can seem out of whack, but it was more of response in a thread on a certain manga which had one character who avoided getting into a relationship that would end up being a mixed(like interracial).


Brony Doing The Social Dance:

Brony: "Well, got my coffee now, off to a meeting in ten seconds flat!" (My co-worker is part of my tribe, but is he or she part of the Herd?)
Brony Co-Worker: "Eeyup." (My co-worker just got 20% cooler.)


A big difference from the first.


Not Doing The Social Dance:

Non-Brony: "Hi, how's it going?"
Non-Social-Dancer: "Wife divorced me last night, and our two kids have cancer."
Non-Brony: "Umm... I'm sorry, I didn't know."


Oops. How he recover this talk?


Brony Not Doing The Social Dance:

Rabid Idiot Brony:  "...but least I've got ponies!  Man, you shoulda seen how Applejack trolled Celestia the other weekend, saying she was right all along and didn't learn a thing!"
Non-Brony: "Celes-wut?"


Another variation could include a Rabid Idiot Ghost Fan into the equation.

Nothing wrong with that either. (Remember, the co-worker isn't actually interested in whether you watched the game or not.)

The next step in the social dance would be for him to chuckle and make a joke about how he always catches hell from the spousal unit for watching too much football.  ("What?  What could you possible be doing all day when you're not watching the game?" would be missing a step in the dance - or rather, fumbling the ball.)

And now for something illustrative, Twilight meets a (Rabid Idiot) Brony:

GdwHvzd-hW0

As for the guy who responded to "How's it going?" with a litany of miseries that would make a blues artist weep, well, yeah, that's the point - he failed to do the social dance.  A simple "Not so good man, rough week" would have elicited either a "Yeah, me too" (I empathize with my co-worker, but would prefer not to hear the gory details) or a "You wanna talk about it?" (I empathize with my co-worker but don't want to pry into matters that aren't my business).


1. I'd rather be hated for what I am than loved for what I'm not. (Kurt Cobain)
2. I'd rather be happy in exile than miserable in acceptance. (a user on iichan actually posted this one)


Nice thing about the Internet is that it's made all sorts of fandoms seen as legitimate.  Sports fans, homebrewers, artists, makers, crafters, bronies, gamers, singers, geeks, sportos, motorheads, dweebs, dorks, sluts, buttheads... at the office, we all get along pretty well and think of each other as righteous dudes/babes.

That article rings true.  Mine was the generation that had just started to accept comic books as a legitimate art form.  (And that's just Cracked's editorial style.  They lambaste everyone; there are no sacred cows.)

I can see the setup now; a brony, his non-brony wife, and the pegasister girlfriend he's cosplaying with (we can hope he's cheating with her, but the high-probability bet is that the wife dumps him because she thinks he's cheating, and the pegasister friendzones him on national TV) on the side.  And the ensuing fight'll probably look something like this:

So I'm looking forward to it.  Just because it doesn't accurately represent the Herd doesn't mean it won't be comedy gold.

For those wondering what the Herd really is about, try this tribute to Photo Finish (a supporting character who was a riff off Meryl Streep's character in The Devil Wears Prada, who was herself loosely based on Vogue's real-life editor-in-chief Anna Wintour) in Season 1, Episode 20, Green Isn't Your Color:

But I digress.

Tonight's video isn't a song from the TV show - it's entirely fan-created.  But hey, if you've been following this thread, you've heard stuff like that before.

What's new here is that the video isn't a mashup made by snipping clips out of the original episodes.  Over the past year or so, the Herd has accumulated a rather colossal library of vector art and pony models suitable for use in Flash.  Recently, the community's artists, musicians, singers, and animators have begun collaborating to produce stuff that's essentially indistinguishable from broadcast-quality.  Like this:

I know they do that(remember me posting this?). It just made me think of the "Badass over here" meme is all, seen it posted on Ponibooru and Dwaine B of DQshrine.

I notice that video gaming culture is also getting more acceptable as well.

I'm sure you've heard of Seanbaby, he has a lot of articles on Cracked(as well as his own site). I found out about him in EGM when they had him do the 20 worst games of all time and the 10 naughtiest games of all time. He mocks bad video games and geek cultures(I loved his different gaming nerds article in EGM).

I have seen articles that someone wrote where they goofed big time. The writer of this article omitted details about the Berenstain Bears book just to make it fit the article(The Giving Tree would have been a better option).

Maybe I should do a variation of Weird Al's Jerry Springer parody.  :D

On a different note...

When I uploaded some images on Derpibooru on Saturday, someone(an anon) added oc tags to a few of them and complained in the comments that I needed to add them on(The third comment saying for me to stop using useless tags and add OC). I was uploading G4 remakes of G1 ponies, I replied back what they were and deleted the OC tags.

All in all, it was a minor annoyance, the wrong tags didn't get added back. I'm guessing the anon got blocked(or gave up).

So they either:

1. Were trolling (which would explain it only happening to three of my posts, thus getting blocked)
2. Not familiar with G1 at all
3. Hated G1 with a passion to point of pretending they were OCs.

It was something I was going to post about, what with the recent posts I did about the trolls, but forgot to until now.

But Weird Al's Jerry Springer is one of the few Weird Al tunes that has yet to be completely ponified.  Say, that reminds me of another amusing PMV...

For an 11-minute song, they actually managed to lipsync at least 8 minutes of it.  Awesome editing work, and they actually managed to make sense of one of Al's most nonsensically surreal songs.  I don't think Weird Al himself even tried to make a video for it.

Well, it's not the idea I'm the most inspired to do.

The ones that I am most inspired to parody around My Little Pony themes are:

Diamond Dolls by The Chipettes (This one based off of an episode)
We want some ***** by 2 Live Crew (Kind of a funny thing to parody a dirty song around MLP themed)
Diamond Sea by Sonic Youth (This one I'll have to use the video version of, the song is almost 20 minutes long on the CD)
Floyd the Barber by Nirvana (This one off of something fandom made)

These are the ones I remember wanting to do at the moment(The first two I do have a little of them wrote down). Floyd the Barber would be a pretty good start since it's a shorter one.

I've been meaning to do these, I just get easily distracted at times. Which is a shame, because I would love to add something of artistic value to FiM fandom.

I don't have an EqD account and I know they don't allow anonymous to post(they got rid of anon posting after some trolls decided to cause problems and such on the site, ruining for the anonymous that behaved).

With Derpibooru down at the moment, at least improving to these songs could help me a bit.

Dear Princess Celestia,


We want some ***** by 2 Live Crew (Kind of a funny thing to parody a dirty song around MLP themed)


So hay, maybe it's just the cider talking, and my friend Step-Chan has a funny way of spelling "Pony" because it looks like the "o" and "n" keys are broken on his keyboard, but the Herd needs 2 Live Crew PMVs, starting with We Want Some Pony, progressing to The Buck Shop, and we'll leave it to the Internet to ponder Face Down Plot Up, That's The Way She Likes to Buck, but why the hell has 2 Live Crew NOT been done yet?  (This attempt at Me So Pony doesn't count except for inspiration.  Anypony could have come up with something 20% cooler in ten seconds flat without getting Banned in E-questri-ayyy.  Why yes, Princess Celestia, I... I'm kinda hungry, sure, I'm OK with bananas.  Why do you ask?)

But before I'm off to the moon for a couple of days, let the record show that one of the first PMVs that helped drag me into (or was it out of?) the stable was Wu-Tang Herd, Shame On A Pony, who try to run game on a brony.  And that Reggie Watts one. 

A year or two later, we're up to stuff like this:

XX8N49oFk_c

  - Ponies With Attitude, 100 Miles and Running.

Difficulty Factor: Each pony in the video is mapped to one performer (Pinkie == Eazy-E.  Rarity == Ren.  Dashie == Dre.  Pon-3 == DJ Yella) from the original group.  Was so not expecting the "taking a minute" and "urge to kick down doors" lines.  (And we got ten thousand bronies strong / we got everypony singin' our Fark the Police song...)

Goodnight, everypony!

Oh, with the guy spouting OCs on a few of my uploads, I think he(I imagine it's a he) also downvoted all uploaded G4 remakes of G1 ponies. The thing is a lot of fans are actually fine with the G4 remakes of earlier generation ponies. But as I said, it was more of minor annoyance in which I deleted the non related tags and stated what they actually were. No name calling happened from either side(me or the anon).

Oh, on Derpibooru, anonymous posters are listed as Background Pony.

The 2 Live Crew one I do have some of the words stored(as I mentioned before), both it and Floyd the Barber are ideal to do first, mainly because of the length of the songs(a decent warm up).

It creeps up on you unexpectectly.  You start off having seen some pony image macros and a couple of articles, it shows up here, you do a little research, decide to watch a couple of episodes, and... well... it hasn't affected me a bit, has it?  I mean, I'm perfectly normal!  I just want to live with common people.  I want to do whatever common people do.  I want to listen to common people, I want to listen to common people like William Shatner, covering Pulp's 90s hit Common People... wait, wut?

5twGTI_qw6o

  - Pulp, Common People (William Shatner cover) or Pulp, Common People (original) for the purists.

Anyways.

The premiere episodes were actually a little lame relative to the rest of the series, so unless you're interested in figuring out what all the references are in all the music videos and image macros (that was what brought me down, I got caught up on the entire series and, well, you've seen the results), start with something other than the premiere.  I'm in general agreement with this thread at The Escapist about what to do if you're only going to try one episode to see what all the fuss is about. 

It's good animation that stands on its own merits, every episode drops a few cultural references that only adults will get, and the best episodes are ones whose lessons are applicable both to 5-15 year olds dealing with friends, frenemies, bullies, and authorities at school, or to adults dealing with office politics.  Do they still care about your hair and the car you drive?  Doesn't matter if you're sixteen or thirty-five!

So I still don't have the right look, and I don't have the right friends, and I still listen to the same s*poop*t I listened to back then, but as Bowling for Soup put it, high school never ends.

That's downright cute!  (Google around for Disney PMVs.  With both studios being revered both for good animation and throwing in lots of musical numbers, there's a natural crossover, and a significant portion of the Disney tracks have been ponified.  EqD has excellent coverage.)

I liked the MAD TV tribute/parody - it was one of the first times MLP broke out of the Internet and appeared in the "real world" of mainstream entertainment. 

As for the traffic decline, it's a bit of that, but more likely that everybody's still waiting for Season 3.  Even a fandom as big as MLP needs more content to work with.  We survived the hiatus between Season 1 and Season 2, but after the successful conventions this summer (still a few more to go), there are more than enough people still active to reignite things when Season 3 comes out.

In the meantime, I'll close off tonight by going through the backcatalogue and spinning some classic 80s tunes.  (The cover of Take On Me is particularly well-done, and captures the pencil art style of the original video.)

Oh, indeed, The Tumblrs.

Oh, and I have an alternate explanation for what happened to ExtremeMan8's friend.


My friend is a brony. Not sure why. Out of all the things.  :-\\


There once was a manga (and anime) called Deathnote.  "The main character is Light Yagami, a high school student who discovers a supernatural notebook, the "Death Note", dropped on Earth by a shinigami (a god of death) named Ryuk. The Death Note grants its user the ability to kill anyone whose name and face they know, by writing the name in the notebook while picturing their face. The series centers around Light's attempt to create and rule a world "cleansed of evil" as "God" using the notebook, and the efforts of a detective known as L to stop him."

The process depicted is remarkably similar to what happened to me.  Someone wrote my name in a book that turns humans into bronies, I felt compelled to started clicking, googling, and the rest...

I'm glad they recovered from it after that incident. ^

Went from not doing anymore QA testing to replacing the original testers that were on during that.

This leak reminds me of something that happened around after Dragon Quest 6 was announced for a U.S. release. Someone posted an incomplete(claiming it to be complete and of their own doing, the actual translators were originally doing it in case of no release) fan translation of DQ6. This was obviously done by a troll, which I'm guessing was possibly the same one on Gamefaqs claiming that DQ6 wasn't coming out(Not completely sure, but it wouldn't surprise me).

Oh LOL.... I remember South Park the Movie Bigger Longer and Uncut was the last movie I went to watch at a theater.

As for the Brony Etiquette, those are actually from Tumblr. Some dude apparently thinks Derpibooru needs to see those and uploads them. Why the uploader thinks Derpibooru needs to see them the most is beyond me.

Derpibooru isn't the most behaved site, but it's definetly not the worst(and the behavior levels are an improvement over the now defunct Ponibooru). Derpibooru isn't as big traffic and user wise either. I feel 4chan's MLP board would be a better place for the ones that make some sense and are actually on topic.

The person on the Brony Etiquette tumblr tells to avoid things like:

Sites like Derpibooru, Ponychan and Equestria Daily.
The .MOV series as well.

Yeah... Which leads me to my next point...

I looked through more of the Brony Etiquette tumblr and he has to be trolling or at least have a inflated viewpoint of himself in comparison to the rest of the fandom.

Okay, this should apply to any fandom. Brony Etiquette, just change your name to Fanbase Etiquette and call it a day.  ::)

To explain, you probably know that someone spread something about the Everfree con having a nasty incident. Well, said incident didn't actually happen persay.

Someone took a minor thing and blew it out of proportion or made something up for attention(and apparently has done it with other fandoms). Of course, Brony Etiquette picked up on this story shortly afterwards.

These two uploads show that nothing at a disastrous level went down.

Here's someone who talks about the downsides of the fandom in a sensible manner. ^

http://ragingsemimiscellani.tumblr.com/post/30017100936/jose-md-so-this-and-a-discussion-about-it-with

And here's a different point of view on it. ^

Although I will point out that every fandom has problems that are similar. (Captain Obvious to the rescue)  :D :D :D :D

The Pokemon fandom has bickering involving favorites and which are better, casual battlers against competitive battlers, those who are annoyed by the Rule 34(The first and last being in a similar category to that of different parts of the FiM fandom), and they are a big target for trolls.

Dragon Quest fandom as I've mentioned is a smaller one internationally. Doesn't seem to have a massive amount of problems(probably due to being more of a cult following), but it seems that we are a bit easy to troll. Mainly trolls use "the next game is not coming out" to cause chaos and flaming.

As for my thoughts on the Brony fandom?

I don't think there are any problems that are humungous or fatal and definitely nothing that hasn't existed in other fandoms throughout the years(Department of redundancy department). The fandom isn't perfect, but it's still a fun one and there are plenty of good fans. And really, that's all I need.

Sure, it's all fun and games until somepony loses their sense of perspective.  But if it all made sense, it wouldn't be a fandom.  After all, what fun is there in making sense?

Sure, it's all fun and games until somepony loses their sense of perspective.  But if it all made sense, it wouldn't be a fandom.  After all, what fun is there in making sense?

Also found out that the first season of Friendship is Magic is being released in the U.S. through Amazon.

While I hate ordering online, I'll have to if I want to get it. I just don't know what they take for payment. I lack credit cards(but do have debit).

Ran into this demotivate here.

Trixie with Black Psyche Locks?

For those who don't know much about the Ace Attorney series, psyche locks show up when someone is holding a secret while they are being interrogated, proper questioning and answers tend to shatter them. Black psyche locks are, well... much worse, since the person is trying to keep their secrets hidden so hard that they will not break without a miracle. In Apollo Justice, Phoenix tried interrogating Kristoph Gavin, and found that he had five black psyche locks. He was unable to break them, probably because Kristoph hated Phoenix that much, he's the last person Kristoph would be sincere with. You can that Trixie has them as well, but I doubt she killed the victim in the Turnabout Storm.

Just came from Derpibooru. Someone on there uploaded a lot of one artist's G4 remakes of G1 ponies. 32 images of them to be precise, I know because I upvoted and saved all of them.

So I'm going to post some of them here, divided into two posts.

If you like MLP, you'll love Barbapapa.  This was a totally trippy French cartoon from the seventies translated into numerous languages.  It's a family of amorphic/polymorphic creatures.  I do remember them from children's TV in English circa 1979, but I can't find any in English.

Was I suppose to make them smaller? (I don't have editing tools on this desktop except for MSpaint)

I have tinkered with images on MSpaint, mainly with editing parts of an image out(like unnecessary space that doesn't have anything but a plain background). I didn't know there's option to shrink images. I'll have to find that.

I did check the thread out of curiosity and saw the Sept. 29th date today, but I can still make a avatar out of one of those pictures.

Edit: Trying to find that option to shrink, but I don't know where to look. (I'll update when I figure it out)

Update edit: Found it! Stretch and skew options. Still takes a bit of guessing and testing to use it right.

With Pokemon Black and White 2 coming out on Sunday(I planned my last week's paid vacation for the year to start then), I want to use the naming theme I did on my previous Pokemon Leafgreen playthrough, which is a My Little Pony and Brony theme(I might have mentioned wanting to do that again on here before, but I don't remember).

Nicknaming Pokemon won't be a problem, although I'm not sure what to do with naming the character you choose or your rival. Do you have any ideas?

If you've ever seen the Sgt. Frog anime, you'll know that Fluttershy and Tamama are appropriate match(Remember Best Night Ever?).

:D :D :D :D :D

On the Pokemon front, as I mentioned in my previous post... I have been at a stand still with the grotto on the route that houses the Pokemon I want in it.

The Pokemon in question is Minccino, which evolves into Cinccino. Now Minccino is common in the tall grass on the route with the grotto on it, but I want one that's in the grotto instead.

Why, you ask? Because it has a really good ability. The only problem is that they are rare in the grotto, I've literally added up hours of trying to get one to appear in there on and off. Stacked with my stubborn streak, this is adding up to a great deal of stress that could end in cans.wav True capitalist style rage.

Looking back, Rarity would have been a better name for the Minccino I'm trying to get, considering how rare it seems to be.

Not so much a bad thing as a puzzling thing, both Beavis and Butt-head have massive problems themselves.

I'm just trying to figure out why Butt-head equals Derpibooru and Beavis equals Ponibooru.

Derpibooru: Better modded, less issues with problem posters(due to the chaotic ones not coming along in the move earlier this year).
Butt-head: Smarter than Beavis, but also more of a jerk in comparison. Derpibooru less has issues with jerks overall, so that seems to be a mismatch.

Ponibooru: Terrible modding(honestly, the site's mods just let it go to hell... Which is pretty much the equivalent of telling a bully they can beat you up) and more problematic posters. Had the largest amount of MLP images and such stored there.
Beavis: Nicer than Butt-head, but has some unique obsessions. Also more hazard prone. Another mismatch.

I actually think Beavis and Butt-head represent both sites, as neither character is a clear match for either alone.

Derpibooru being the better side of them and Ponibooru being the crazier side.

Funny analogy never the less.

All I'm saying is that neither Beavis or Butt-head fit the sites individually, only when they are put together they do.

I recognize some of the costumes in that fanart on the bottom of your post, but what are Pinkie Pie, Flutte...

Wait, nevermind... I looked at the original post, still haven't heard of some of those characters however.

Sure, I know more about the properties of the incredible, squishable, squashable, squeezable, stretchable, bouncable Gak (ZOMG 72 hours after it aired, there's an entire album of Gak music, sweet Celestia's Plot, how I love this fanbase) than I know about the backstory of the arch-villain of Season 3.  Hell, from what we saw, the door at the bottom of the staircase was a more fearsome villain than King Sombra.  We saw a chunk of his horn flying off intact from the scene in which Shining Armor saved the day by hurling his wife at the arch-villain and blowing everything up, so maybe he'll be back, hopefully with a little more backstory.

OK, maybe not that much backstory.

Hadn't checked on Weird Al in a while, until doing a YMMV search on Naruto(long story). I didn't know Weird Al had done a parody about TMZ, so I looked up the song and watched a video of it, then decided to do a PMV search for it.

Sure enough, there is one.

OK, so King Sombra was the weakest villain ever, but he was kinda handicapped by being incapable of vocalizing anything more than just a few Wookie-like grunts about slavery, but maybe that's because he was reduced to a disemodied shadow of himself for the past 1000 years. 

https://i.chzbgr.com/completestore/12/11/12/upzZXkths0KPlSuAeNqS3g2.jpg

Man, WTF happened 1000 years ago - Luna going to the Moon, Sombra getting shadowified, that can't be a coincidence.  I've got hopes that he, or at least part of his corruption, will show up again in future episodes.  I'll give the premiere a 7/10 (Season 1, 8/10, Season 2, 10/10).  LOL'd at the Rarigasm over the crystal city and the Twigasm over the library.  Might have been 8/10 except that GAK got more air time than the villain did. 

And last week's episode was...

http://fc08.deviantart.net/fs71/i/2012/323/0/6/fun_fun_fun_by_atryl-d5lgfpa.png

...busy having fun.  How can you not like that much Pinkie Pie?  This week's might actually have some socially-redeeming value, as the Cutie Mark Crusaders have another miserable time being beaten up on by their peers.

I agree Sombra was a rather lame antagonist. Overall, I thought those two episodes were an acceptable start to season 3 even if the villain happened to be rather lackluster.

Awesome ending, which brings me to something else.

Some people have commented that this will end the grimdark involving Dash towards Scootaloo.

I doubt that though. Someone did upload some stuff of that manner today and if people still try to perpetuate creepypastas like Lavender Town Syndrome and Dead Bart being real, then the Grimdark abuse of Scootaloo won't likely end either.

Spectacular episode, arguably better than last week's.  Sometimes we forget the show's actually supposed to have a message, and the message that it's OK to admit when you're derped out about something is something we could all do with remembering.

I was thinking the ending was suggestive of what eventually happened in the (grimdark) Rainbow Factory fanfic.  "Hey, Scoot, let those four go up ahead a bit, it's time you found out what rainbows were made of..."

But seriously, I never saw how scootabuse (as a meme) caught on in the first place.  Faust herself spoke on it, and someone made a great call six months ago that we'd see an episode just like this in season 3.

Ah, now I see. I never heard of Rainbow Factory, as I'm not into fanfics. The only reason I even know of ones like Cupcakes and Past Sins is due to the mass of fanart inspired by them along with word of mouth.

I remember reading Lauren's follow up on that before.

The thing is, if I remember right, the Scootabuse stuff most likely started prior to Owl's Well that ends well. I remember someone posted a cap of a DA user asking Lauren if Scootaloo was Rainbow Dash's sister. She said no, mainly because she wouldn't be the best sibling for her(Lauren obviously didn't mean Rainbow Dash would be abusive though).

Let's just say that if the world is full of pastel ponies of every color, what better way to make a rainbow than to concentrate that coloration by extracting it from ponies.  Gotta be live ones, too, and they've gotta be ponies who nobody'll miss, like the poor flyers.  (The good flyers get the best jobs, even if they end up hating the work.)  So guess who ends up getting hired for guard duty, and guess who winds up on the processing line?  Right.  Silly fanfic (but I repeat myself), but great song.

Thing is, we never saw much of Scoot until the last episode, and we have no idea what happened to her parents.  Maybe they leave that bit unanswered.  You don't have to know why she's an orphan to figure out that she's an orphan.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CYSJWeRPAvo

So now I've found a Fluttershy creepy game, called Flutter Island.exe

It's in the same vein as Dreamy Rainbow(which involves Rainbow Dash) and the Luna Game series.

Someone on the video mentioned that Flutter Island.exe is a ripoff of Sonic.exe

It also references the Buried Alive/White Hand creepypasta from Pokemon.

The World-Famous Flim-Flam brothers were a pair of traveling hucksters who taught us about the value of craft cider vs. mass-produced lager in The Super Speedy Cider Squeezy 6000, which was based on The Music Man and the Simpsons Monorail episode.  Rather like how Wal-Mart squeezed Vlasic into bankruptcy by selling a 1-gallon jar of Vlasic's own pickles for $3, Flim and Flam tried to run the Apple family out of the craft cider business by locking up the local supply of apples in order dump cheaply-produced macrobrew onto the market until all the local producers were gone.

We've got more about that episode earlier in the thread - but I can hardly fault you for forgetting about it when I forgot about that Newt Gingrich pony you found a few posts later -- that little fella woulda been handy during primary season!

Strangely enough, the G3 video, A Very Minty Christmas had a song Minty did about socks(loaded with ponies wearing them, kind of unnerving actually, unlike the G4 sock theme).

One of the guys from Ponypokey on the commentary questioned if some of the fan-artists doing the G4 ponies in socks stuff got it from that G3 Christmas video. One of them hoped not(as it would ruin it for him).

So I'm not the only one unnerved by the whole sock thing.  Funny, they don't normally wear clothes, yet when drawn in socks by... ah, I'll blame the fans!  It's their fault I find it unnerving!  Apparently it was several weeks ago that Celestia saw what I was going to write there, so...

MLP went from being for little girls in the 80s and early 90s, to being irrelevant in the middle and late 90s, to being for little girls in the early and mid 00s, to being for grown nerdy men in the early 10s.  ;D

I was refering to G3 song with ponies in socks being unnerving, actually...

It's just the G3 effect that throws into that area.

Anyway, I'm actually a pretty lewd person(that should be obvious) and have no problems with some of the err... crazier things that come out of it. Other things that I have no interest in, like abuse themes and grimdark(well, I have left "ouch" comments on grimdark uploads as a joke before, but those are really rare), I simply practice moot-fu with.

Q: What's moot-fu?

Well, this is mainly due to Lauren Faust. When working with Hasbro and the rest of the crew of the cartoon, she wanted it to be a show that girls could watch with their parents. She often found that most shows for girls have been kind of stupid(she isn't fond of the 80s MLP cartoon, but the toys and her headcanon versions of her favorite ponies are what inspired the current show).

Due to the show being something parents can watch with their kids, so it's not hard to see how older animation fans could possibly like the show.

Sometimes I think part of the reason MLP went so rabidly viral was because for one of the very few times in its existence, a certain online community found itself unable to resist the urge to respond against the influx from a partner/companion sub-board.  If they'd just ignored it, it might have faded out into something benign like ATHF or Adventure Time.  But they couldn't.  And so it escalated, and two years later, here we are.

What he said.  The remixes keep me amused and interested during the week between episodes (and between seasons), but last week's episode about how not to conduct a family reunion was something we should all keep in mind during the holidays.

The point of my practice of moot-fu is more of a response of a difference I have in comparison to some(not most) users on derpibooru that tend to complain about anything they could simply filter out. A luxury that no one on 4chan has.

Now, I don't bother to filter anything out on derpibooru, nor did I do so when on ponibooru. I had hanged around 4chan on /vp/ and /co/ enough that I got well tempered in dealing with some of the more extreme things(from haters, trolls and fans) and simply not respond to them.

Yes, I know I listed some trolling attempts on sites against the fandom, but those I didn't respond to and I found them amusing to read.

As for the trolling/hating helping the fandom grow, it wouldn't surprise me if that's the case. I believe probably what helped the most was the 4chan mod that started spamming his ban hammer on pony threads in /co/ during early 2011.

:D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

I've already watched today's episode almost a half hour ago. Nice overall.

It also looks like we got a couple of weeks before the next one airs too(I think this happened the last two seasons too, sort of a break during early winter. I almost expect work to not work me the next two Saturday nights, then give me an evening shift on the 19th).

I feel as if I must confess.

When I first started hearing guys my age talk about watching the new MLP back last year I thought it was some kind of a rib. Once I found out that the whole "Brony" thing was actually legit, I (as your stereotypical cynical twentysomething) naturally scoffed. Then I decided to sit down and watch an episode on YouTube one day and the damnedest thing happened. I actually liked it! It honestly reminded me alot of the Nickelodeon shows I used to watch as a kid: clearly made with a focus on a young target audience, but still containing enough wit, production value, and solid storytelling to win over an older audience too. These days I guess I'm what you could call a "closeted fan".

What's really funny for me to think about is the fact that if 8-year-old me were to ever find out that 25-year-old me watches freaking My Little Pony, then 8-year-old me would probably jack a DeLorean, warp to 2012, and slap 25-year-old me upside the face. Funny what happens to us as we grow up.

If the kid version of me found out, he wouldn't have cared.  :D

I have actually watched some of the My Little Pony back in the 80s(the movie is what I remembered the most) and I became a fan of Rainbow Brite at that time. I want to get Rainbow Brite and the Star Stealer on DVD, which isn't exactly easy to find now.

The young adult me(I'm currently in my mid 30s) wouldn't have been surprised either, since I like some cutesy anime shows like Di Gi Charat.

My little brother liked the Care Bears.  I didn't even know what the hell they were until he brought some home from the store.  Mind you, before that it was all Star Wars and GI Joe.  So I thought the Care Bears were a little femmy for Stu's menagerie.  He told me they were not bad for boys to have and a lot of the kids in his class were collecting them.  I walked away ala Hank Hill, "The boy ain't right!"

I've found society's view on "acceptable gender roles" and "how adults should be" to be an unnecessary security blanket. I've felt this way long before ever getting into the Brony fandom.

This is the sort of thing that causes some people to be shocked by my lack of interest in sports, something considered to be a man's hobby. Although, admittedly... the stereotype of sports being a man's thing has fell by the wayside a bit nowadays with more women getting into them(and less men getting into them), thus quelling it some(but not enough for some people to stop being taken aback when they find out I don't like that sort of thing).

Sports also get a lot of social acceptance due to their popularity(don't get me wrong, there's nothing wrong with the popularity of sports on it's own, it just that a good number people treat it like the only conversation starter, which goes nowhere when attempted on me).

So there we go, it takes all kinds of people to make a world go round and what some people consider "normality" I find to be overrated(although, to be honest, there is no such thing as true normality, outside of scientific stuff. Any other form of "normality" is subjective).

I agree. Even though I love sports, I still know where your coming from with this because, around these parts, being a guy and not liking to get up at 6 A.M. and spend four hours sitting in a deer stand in the freezing cold is liable to earn you a few funny looks.

I've also long disagreed with the idea of strictly enforced "gender roles", but it remains an important front in the fictional "culture war" that crusty old social conservatives insist on fighting. I remember Bill O'Reilly doing a segment on his show a few months ago about the growing epidemic of little boys playing with dolls.

No pressure need be applied.  The Herd assimilates its own, eventually.  Think back to how long it took you.  Reflect that even I (as our humble forum's most deeply-assimilated member of the herd) have yet to physically saunter into the local toy shoppe and purchase pony-related merch.  It'll happen.  And if it doesn't, hey, he's your brother, love and tolerate the dude anyways.

Interestingly enough, the type of people who get shocked by my lack of interest towards sports are mostly older men and women(usually 45+).

The younger crowd is more of a mixed bag on it, generally younger male sports fans are likely to be surprised, but it's less consistent. Younger women are usually not surprised. (Fluttershy Yay for progress!)

And now for something completely awesome:

http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-2sc6EG5WKLo/UOeACpJ5xfI/AAAAAAABN7w/i4kKnJnzdRs/s640/1.jpg


...I remember walking the floor at last year's Evolution Championship Series and spying Fighting Is Magic for the first time. Through my facial expressions alone, you could have charted my reactions all the way from "What!?" to "They can't be serious." But I was wrong. MANE6, the team behind Fighting Is Magic, was very serious: about ponies, and about building a quality game.

A few months later, after a second (and more open-minded) viewing, it all clicked. Each fighter had her own distinct fighting style. The animations were smooth and full of personality. And…did that pony just bust out an off-the-ground combo? In one and a half years, MANE6 has managed to execute a level of quality far exceeding any reasonable expectations.

Of course, reaching that level has not been easy. This was a group of fans first, and creators second. Between them they had precious little experience developing a game of any sort. Add in the fact that some of them were balancing full-time jobs, and all of them were paying for this out of pocket, and it becomes a wonder this game made it past a week. How did they do it, and what can this most unlikely of fighting games tell us about the genre? That story begins with a few silly pictures...

Well, y'know, Dash was always the scrappier of the two...

Meanwhile, Fluttershy's been hanging out with Eddie Murphy doing some music for Canterlot Hills Cop.

If you know about the amount of hatred Scrappy Doo has gotten over the years(Remember the live movie? The people who made the movie did a "take that" by making him the villian), then you'll know what I'm talking about.

Dragon Ball crossover! (Links to the separate pictures through their names)

Twilight as Bulma. Pinkie Pie as Majin Buu. Applejack as Android 18. Rainbow Dash as Fasha(She was a character in one of the OAVs starring Goku's father). Rarity as Zangya(another DBZ OAV character, I don't remember which one though). Fluttershy as Launch(a character that appeared more often early on, whenever she sneezed she'd change personalities. As for what she's wearing, it was part of a scene at the end of an episode, sort lead up to a joke).

I have been trying to find that image on the computer desktop background in this image that shows the chibi toy, but no luck(Luna has many images on the site, unless I luck out, it will take a long time assuming it's on there).

Derponymous delivers.

http://th07.deviantart.net/fs70/PRE/i/2012/252/6/3/princess_luna_by_poketix-d5e5rrv.jpg

The derpibooru URL says (because derpibooru and ponibooru are awesome at tagging), among other things, "artist_lunagamer".  That tradition of identifying the artist suggests an origin at a DeviantArt URL.  So let's see what's at lunagamer.deviantart.com.  Oh my, so adorable, and Lunagamer's pages for dat adorable chibi Twi (and other ponies) might be in Spanish, but the one we're after also has a link to the original art for the laptop, which points to Poketix's DA page.  Poketix specializes in Pokemon, but also dabbles in pony, and that's where your Fyre-Flye is up to these days.  Neat.  Now let's check dat Twitter feed

I owe ya one for finding that(and it's a jpg! I can fix it to fit my screen without it increasing in filesize! png files tend to increase more often than not when I adjust them). I didn't think of devianart, mainly because I rarely go there(I did try the artist name on derpibooru, but it didn't get me anywhere).

As with Lauren's post, I thought it was funny. Others on the other hand... (And that's not starting on the current panic some fans are having over the possibility of alicorn Twilight)

I didn't go on derpibooru last night, kind of regretted that due to having over 130 pages to go through tonight.

Well, this is going to be a crazy two plus weeks on Derpibooru until Magical Mystery Cure airs.

(I'm almost tempted to filter Alicorn Drama on my account there. It would be a first for me, I'm not the filtering type, even with things that I don't like or annoy me)

For now though, some cuteness to help lower stress.

Admittedly though, Derpibooru is still calm in comparison to some of the other sites. One of the admins saw the IPs, there's only a few complaining about Twilight's new change. There are, however, some complaining about the complainers(The Alicorn Drama tag was over 360 during my last session, I agree that it's getting old now).

A little Pokemon reference.  :D

Anyway, I remember posting the image here months ago that was an early leak(of winged Twilight, which was from some convention in Europe, if I remember right). I didn't really pay it any mind outside of joking about it.

Now that it's known to be canon, I'm not bothered by it. This is something considering the fact that Twilight is one of my favorites from the show.

Stay Pony, my friends.

Although the document in question has been removed, it appears to have had evidence of a 26-episode season 4.

I share that criticism as well(It's the only bad point I saw to it, as I didn't mind Twilight getting wings. Hell, I even find it adorable), as it would have been great in a two episode setup, still enjoyed it though.

Considering that it was a 13 episode season, this was probably done in part(at least from what I read) in case the 65 episode curse would have struck the show. But since it didn't happen, we'll get to see how they make use of Twilight's evolution(Pokemon humor).

I saw about that con fiasco on Derpibooru.

With all the crazy drama that's been going down in the fandom, I'm glad I had already experienced similiar amounts of insane fans in the Pokemon fandom(The Dragon Quest fandom doesn't have that issue so much, due to it being smaller overall). It definitely builds your tolerance up to that sort of stuff.

Saw your karma post about the Sonic fandom, never been into Sonic except for some of the cartoons some time ago. I've heard some say things about them, but most of it was not all that detailed.

There is a little something I'm going to do as a bet to myself here. If you remember me mentioning Sylveon(a Pokemon revealed not too long ago), it's type for now is a mystery.

So here's the thing....

If it's type is one that already existed in the game for a long while, I'm going to change my avatar to this.

If it's a new type added to the game(not all that likely to happen though), I'll switch to this avatar.

Sometimes ya just gotta get indiscriminate with the friendship.  I mean, do my co-workers care whether I baked cupcakes or muffins?  Probably not.  So I went with the muffins, which were easier because I didn't have to worry about doing anything artistic like I would have had to do with a cupcake topping, and...

Although I don't know when the change in avatars will occur(depends on when Sylveon's typing is revealed, could be in next week's Corocoro, could be months from now).

In the meantime... (There hasn't been as much post worthy, at least for what's allowed on this site)

Well, I imagine Sethisto is.  :D ^

Anyway, due to my how my work schedule has been setup for a while(3 evening shifts a week... ugh!) I haven't been on Derpibooru as much lately. Did go on tonight, the post season traffic slowdown is starting to show.

Also waiting on Corocoro to leak with more Pokemon info. Hopefully Sylveon's type will be revealed, since I have a bet going on with 2 users on woodus and I want to know which of us predicted right.

Oh yeah, the guy claiming Twilight as his wife(I like that Kevinsano just kept drawing just to troll him). That actually happened awhile back, although I didn't really know about until this weekend(I tend to skip past part of the drama, or not even check the tags when I see a wall of text, I go on Derpibooru for ponies in general, not words). It's funny that The Onion(which does fictional satire news, as you know) actually posted this story (months behind when it happened though). It's their first news story about something that actually happened(as far as I know, do you know if they posted any other news that actually happened?)

The funny thing is that I do have a thing for drawn stuff(others on here already know about this), but I know it's not real and would never treat any characters as a wife.

Also, I would to see more PMVs of different Nirvana songs. Only Teen Spirit, Lithium, Breed and Dumb have been done as far as I've seen(with the last two being parodies).
