Jeff73: P.S. click the link here while looking at the image I just posted and all those kooky Pinkie fanfics start to make a little more sense.


The episode "Party of One" manages to be both a sensitive and funny portrayal of paranoid schizophrenia, right up to, and including, Pinkie Pie experiencing hallucinations. (Thought you were gonna go straight to Cupcakes, but yeah, Alex S. for the win...)

And, that's another thing. For those not yet part of the Herd, this has been the most insanely prolific and creative fandom in the history of, umm, ever. The show's fun, but for me, it's the fan-produced music, artwork, and video that the show has inspired that makes it 20% cooler. The linked video is made from snippets of the show, but the audio is entirely original and fan-made. Original pony-related tracks have become part of the Rock Band franchise. Living Tombstone, Ashcorp, Alex S., IBringDaLULZ, Eurobeat Brony, Aviators, Mandopony, just do some random googling and I can guarantee you'll find something you like whether you've ever seen the show or not. I've got more hours of pony-related MP3 than I'll likely listen to in a lifetime.

Heh, every pony-related thread on every non-pony discussion forum on the internet has about the same content:
5% actual discussion on the relevant topic
25% haters calling bronies pedophiles,
15% bronies defending themselves
55% dumb pony pics.

Twilight Farkle: It's good animation, it's one of the few respites from cynicism that exist on modern TV, but it's not so saccharine that it's unwatchable by adults (even without the cultural references the animators throw in to make it watchable by parents who have yet to become one with the Herd.)


Pretty much my take. I started watching a few episodes due to the pony pics posted hereabouts and got hooked on the animation style and especially the excellent voice acting. The fact that some people go nuts because other people enjoy it is just icing on the cupcake from my POV.

That noted, thought this one was kinda funny...

I think he'd approve. Many in the brony community probably haven't even heard of Lehrer, and if they haven't... well, it's about time they did. When memes propagate at rates best described in terms of exponential growth (that's mathematics), we call it "going viral". Whatever we get, we share. (I got it from Agnes.)

Back on that serious thing (thanks, Duck, you gave me the excuse to get drunk and spend the entire night in ponyverse, and you have no idea how badly I needed that after today at the day job) for a moment. if you've ever tried to deal with cowboy coders, agilistas, and the QA department, you'll appreciate the episode "Super Speedy Cider Squeezy 6000."

When in doubt, "it's one of those Internet things," covers a lot of ground. Speaking of icing the cupcake tonight,

You gotta do the cookin' by the book (NSFW lyrics), but if you really wanna find whether the office brony is one of the ones who takes everything seriously or with a cube of sugar, just serve something like this at your next office party. Everypony loves cupcakes

I'm calling it a night with The Anvil Song, the original version of which should serve as a lesson for haters and bronies alike. G'night everypony!

So... an unauthorized website offering unsupervised multiplayer interaction, based on a show whose fans consist mainly of young girls and middle-aged single men? Yeah, I'm sure nothing untoward could possibly have happened.
I can't comment about "bronies," but that set-up is just begging for a lawsuit. Most websites that might have pre-teen users have some type of monitoring or age restrictions. It could be fine, but what corporation would take that risk?

Don`t care if my comment has nothing to do with the thread or TFA, just wanted to say it.

quatchi: some people go nuts because other people enjoy it


Not here, I go nuts because of the amount of brony images that have no connection to TFA posted in threads. Enjoy it all you like but don`t push it in my face. Like gay sex, I have no problem with people enjoying it, I have a problem with people forcing it onto others. Same with religion. Enjoy it all you like and gain whatever validation you need from it but don`t push it onto the rest of the world.

I wouldn`t hear about people enjoying it, I only hear about assholes who wont stop posting it everywhere.

It's getting there yes. I honestly thought the appeal would wear thin after awhile, especially when I wear them while DJing on the weekends..

Yet here we are. Everyone around town seems to know me as "the pony guy" and not a single person ridicules me for it. Most think it's hysterical still. Fine by me, I like wearing bright poppy t-shirts over the usual dude who wears dark colors, or white, with an "edgy" screen print.

Thinking of decking out one of my Pon3 shirts in EL wire to make it even brighter. Just not sure if I want to risk ruining it.

I will be honest- I dont get the whole pony thing. I do find many pics of them funny, which is nice.
However- I really dont get any hate directed towards those who like my little pony- its just stupid.
I mean, so what ? does folks liking the show, or dressing up like a character affect your life in any damn way ? NO.
Hells bells- I collect LOTR dolls and figures and use Barbie dolls in beer displays, and many might find that creepy as I am 44, but nobody is hurt.
And you really would not believe how many kids have asked their parents why they cant have the barbies on the ( insert beer name ) display because they looked like they were having fun.
Not to mention the awkward pause when mommy or daddy explains that the two girls were collecting the shells and comparing them to see who had the coolest one ( I use real sea shells, from the seashore, that I bought from Sally- thats why ken and ken or barbi and whomever are stiting so close ....

I wish I could freak everyone out with the LOTR dolls, but.... they sadly MUST stay in the package.
Anyhow- I always laugh at pics posted in Pony threads, you damn Bronies, so please- Carry on.

No matter how pathetic you think the bronies are, being an obsessive hypocritical hater will always make you worse.

I will answer in the Brony style... with a picture

[www.zen28158.zen.co.uk image 320x240]

In short, no.

The bronies put up pictures of ponies.

The first chance you got in this thread, you brought up the subject of pedophilia, and now you post the picture of a cartoon child.

I'm getting the vibe here that the bronies are not the one we should be worried about here.

The first thing the trolls and haters always bring up when "discussing" MLP is pedophilia. They're convinced that anyone over 5 years old only pretends to like it so they can rape children. How? They never explain, they just keep screaming "PEDOS!". They're the ones obsessed with child rape.


Which is especially indicative considering that if they were REALLY concerned they would be yelling about "Furries" and "Bestiality" and the like. But nooooo, they bring up the subject of "Pedophilia". A good shrink would have a field day with these people.

/Don't misunderstand me. I don't mean that Bronies are deviants.
//just that the obvious target is ignored.
 
2012-12-12 02:46:40 PM  

FirstNationalBastard: Broncos threads are fair game for Ponies. Hell, it usually says so in the headline.


And the ponies normally only appear in the thread while the game is on

Also, you're a gentleman and a scholar, thank you for the TF
