rhcmom: saintstryfe: rhcmom: Oh look -- my very own Bronies, excitedly browsing Target a few months ago

[i46.tinypic.com image 640x480]

Based on that cart, they might just be buying for a child. Notice the onesie in the cart?

No, those onesies were for their baby brother, I put them in the cart. *They* stopped at the MLP section for themselves. My 13 yr old just got this shirt from Hot Topic a month or so ago - and wears it to school in spite of the name-calling that ensues from a few punks.


I find the welovefine tshirts to be much better, and they give you extra goodies because that's how they are. I got two stickers, and a huge bag for free when I bought two of the art noveau t-shirts.

Has anyone posted this yet?

"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."

-C.S. Lewis "On Three Ways of Writing for Children" (1952)

I had seen MLP stuff popping up online for a while, decided to give it a chance after seeing a video that someone did that over dubbed the Running of the Leaves episode with audio from Top Gear. Posting this from a phone with Rainbow Dash's Cutie Mark for a background, so you can guess how it turned out.

broktune: Could you imagine back when you were a child, waiting for your father to pop the hood on the old Buick, his hands covered in grease, holding a can of beer....sitting in an easy chair saying "Hold on son, before I show you how to change the oil, I have to catch the latest episode of My Little Pony."


I can't, but that's because it's more likely he'd watch an episode of that cartoon than own a Buick, work on a Buick, go into the house with his hands covered in grease, or drink beer to relax. In fact, my dad was both a good man and the antithesis of your vision of what any valid man should be. Funny that.

Taking the sex off tv isn't any fun if you like what they put in it's place. Also, if you like whatever replaced the six, you must be sexualizing it.

No, but it's what's popular these days.

Ah, but there's a difference between freeze frame gags and a full Conway Twitty song cutaway.

That has made me turn off Family Guy mid-episode. God talk about lazy. Pop culture references aren't necessarily bad writing when done correctly(see: Tarantino movies), but the majority of it is just filler for sloppy dialogue. Writers think it makes them more edgy or some shiat.

Dear Princess Celestia:

Today I learned that there are some petty, small-minded people who will hate on literally anything that doesn't match their prefabricated opinions of masculinity if it'll buy them a few minutes of attention. If someone's making sweeping judgments about you based on something you enjoy, then they don't really know you at all, and you shouldn't let their opinions affect yours. A true friend will still be your friend, even if you disagree sometimes!

Signed, Twilight Spackle.

Neums: Was that at C2E2? Windows look like the show floor at McCormick Place.


It was at C2E2.

The booth that had those hats sold them out maybe 15 minutes after the convention opened on Friday. I bought the hat out of a kind of solidarity with the person I went with more than fandom on my part but I wore it all weekend because really, where else does one wear a $25 Rainbow Dash hat?

The funny thing is, Brony love is real and it is sincere. People would just come up and fistbump me and tell me how awesome I was for wearing Rainbow Dash on my head. A four or five year old girl just reached out and fistbumped me. Some dude dressed as Mr. T fistbumped me. The guy at the Medieval Times booth just about crapped himself trying to show me his Rainbow Dash iphone wallpaper even as he stayed in character the whole time. People saw the hat and then I was just included in their world. It was awesome and though I did not call myself a brony before I would say that I am one now.

I have learned in the time since that the fistbump is properly called a Brohoof and there is an emoticon that looks like /) (\ for it.

There's also a raging debate among Pony fans over the nomenclature of inclusion. One of my friends insists that female pony fans are also Bronies, while another prefers to be a Pegasister. Apparently the Pro-bro argument is that it is widely inclusive in much the same way as a term like "mankind", while the Pegasisters wish to have their gender differences treated as separate but equal, which is important in the wider context of Ponies as representations of female empowerment. It's a whole political discussion on the finer and sillier points of political correctness but believe it or not there are people for whom that actually matters.

Makes me wish I lived in a bigger town -- I have a RD decal on the tailgate of my blue truck and only 4 people, outside my family, have recognized where it's from, two while I was driving and two while I had my truck in the repair shop.

These kids that came to the repair shop with their dad went all excited after seeing the decal, approached my truck and brohoofed it, saying it was 20% cooler. I actually wanted to say hi to the kids but I looked like a hobo that day, scruffy beard, scruffy hair, dirty t-shirt and and denim shorts (i had been working in the backyard earlier that day before going to drop my truck for some AC repair work) so I thought it would be wiser not to all things considered.

Also, no one gives a fark when I wear my Art Noveau Rarity or Art Noveau Fluttershy t-shirts, I might get some side glances every now and then but for the most part, no one gives a fark or recognizes them.

Also, depending on what happens in the next few months, I might get a white kia soul, which will get a rarity decal slapped onto it.

Cool to know there was at least one other Farker there. I went to Wizard World Austin back in Nov. '10, and I'd considered that my first "real" con. After C2E2, I realized that was a joke compared to a week and a half ago. So much fun.

The Rarity and Fluttershy ones are the best ones imo, 2nd tier is Applejack and Derpy, 3rd tier is Luna & Trixie, bottom tier is the RD, Pinkie and Twilight... they look soooo stoooned...

I wanted to buy the Luna one as well, but then.... her neck, OMG, her neck...

suziequzie: Rebuttal to TFA

The important thing is to be honest with yourself. I mean, your first instinct when thinking of My Little Pony was "unicorns that spray rainbows from their horns." Is there any doubt where your mind actually was when those words appeared on the computer monitor?

I do have to agree with you there. It's awkward bringing these highly stylized characters into another highly stylized medium. However this inspired me to crack the whip and get around to making that Art Nouveau Eeyore I've been putting off. I wanted something ridiculous to hang up in Future Mr. Mouse's office that we both could get a kick out of (when moved in together we both discovered our personal Eeyore collections).

The execution of the Rarity Noveau is amazing imo -- and I really do like my shirt, but I'd like it more if welovefine would give me more t-shirt color options... they only offer it in white, light blue and light gray, if it was dark gray, I'd love it even more.

The fluttershy one I got in olive drab, it looks amazing.

The person I matched at a speed dating event last year and my con buddy this year is a former TFette (I did not know her beforehand). The first year I took a different TFette. This year I won tickets to a screening of the Avengers and I am taking another TFette since my con buddy can't make it.

I've also seen people I know from TF at Wizard's Chicago con.

Anyway, people are around.

The two times a year I go to comic conventions are the ONLY times I feel normal. I can meet and talk to women, get brohoofs and wear my awesome geek apparel. I'm basically the poster boy for basement dwellers but the being around an enormous group of like minded people changes my whole life for a few days. I'm not that far from Chicago, but I live in a tiny podunk blue collar town too. The cons are my escape from that.

There are actually Brony cons. There's going to be one in Northern Illinois on the third weekend in September. It's called Midwestria.

I don't think I have much geek apparel, i'd say the geekiest stuff I have is my two pony shirts and my wow tanking shirt... I mostly tend to wear sports apparel (baseball jerseys, football jerseys, caps and stuff), heck I'm a former football player.

my biggest claim to geekhood is being a typesetter for some 4komas and a former pyramid head cosplayer, and liking some mangas... but the mangas I like are not mainstream ones (the more mainstream one I like Jojo's Bizarre Adventure)
