Dac, I came to have our regular sitcom like debate. But this is funny all by itself, no need for input by me.

Ahh, where would we be without socially tactless farmboys?

I’ll tell you what, This thread would be a hell of a lot more boring! But I do know when to talk about such things, mind you, I won’t talk about it with anyone other than you guys and my closest friends.
@Rule 63

Regarding cosplay;

Regarding Rule 63;

Regarding discussion that I was late about;
How about a new topic? Who is your favorite musician in this community, what’s your favorite song by him/her, and why is he/she your favorite musician? Mine would have to be WoodenToaster. There’s just something about his music that I love so much.
[edit]: I enjoy everyone’s music really, but if I had to pick a favorite it would be Glaze.

I see a lot of Rule 63 here and i might as well contribute.





For some reason i can actually picture spike better as a girl than a boy. Speaking of spike i have a question. If spike were a human would he be
African American because a lot of the fan art that depicts him as a human views him as a African American child.

So what do you think guy’s?

Oh, and do you guy’s still think that spike would still like Rarity even if she was a colt?

@R63
Here you go.

Yup, R63 Chrysalis . Bet you’ve never seen that before.


When it comes to brony music, I’ve only listened to Alex S. I tend to stay away from most of it unless it’s a remix of lines from the show. Like this one:

I don’t really know why. I guess I just find it creepy that people are willing to write original songs and sing about ponies and, as far as I’m aware, that’s the only thing they’re willing to sing/write about (maybe not, I wouldn’t really know). Or maybe I’m just less of a music person, since I do read fics, and most people who write MLP fics never wrote about anything else.

@Cheese Stick

Creepy Cosplay outfits?

Meh, I’m kinda used to it now, I’ve seen so many of those. Not to mention that I have seen worse than that one.

I stopped getting the impression that these things were weird a long time ago. Around about the time I realized that humanity is just weird like that in general and nothing is truly normal. Sure, one may feel rather embarassed for them but hey, its their problem, not mine. And who am I to judge anyway? I’m just as nerdy.

Off Topic,
Would you guys say this takes fandom too far? Or are you okay with this?

“Eep…”

‘Too far’ is a very relative term.
That is certainly weird and nothing I would ever consider doing, but he(?) isn’t hurting anyone so I’d say ‘let him be.’
Some could argue that this hurts our image, and to an extent it does, but only in the minds of people already predisposed to stereotyping entire groups based on the actions of a few.
To anyone who takes people as individuals, this shouldn’t really matter much.

I dont like that and I would never consider doing it, but whatever. If he wants to prance around in that, that’s his problem, not mine.

@Prof. Cheese Stick

No, and no. I don’t know if that’s taking the fandom too far, and I am not OK with it.

Kinda like BSoD was saying, I’m not one to tell someone else what to do. However, if you’re posing like that in a suit like that, even at a convention, then I am well within my rights to avoid you at all costs. Not going to point and laugh or anything. I don’t want to ruin your fun. But yeah. You’d creep me out a bit.

How about some Blueblood?

@Cheese Stick

Cosplaying? I dunno, it’s just putting on a silly costume for fun, even if it’s a pink pony from a cartoon. Not that I’d feel confortable doing it or being around a person doing it either (especially if they we’re playing the part) but pretty much anything goes.

Yep. That second one is Chris Chan cosplay. I think alot of people just do it for the lulz.

So, I heard that Derpy is getting her own toy which includes the derped eyes. Does that mean the war has been won?

Rule #1: Do not talk about the Derpy War.

However… I would not say there was a war to win, things happened, but there was nothing we could do about it. I would hope that this would be a way of them saying they still like us, and may be sorry about what happened to the character, but that’s just my romanticized version of what is happening.

It’s just another shout out. Probably nothing more, probably nothing less. It is nice that there are muffins on the box; that made me smile.

Coming to a Comic Con near you (if you live near San Diego, California):

There was never a ‘war’ against Derpy.
Hasbro didn’t really want to censor her, but large corporations have always had disproportionate reactions to minor complaints.
They were just being a business.
They had (and to an extent, still have) no idea how to deal with this crazy ‘brony’ thing.
It’s so out of their usual comfort zone.
Derpy as a Comic Con toy proves that they are really putting an effort behind it and I hope it will pay off greatly so they will continue in the future.

@Ric
That is great, congratulations on your A. Is it university or college algebra?
Edit: In Canada there are 3 levels of High School education including Academic/University, Applied/College and Work/Essentials. I do not know the American High School education system, so can you give me a Canadian equivalent of the level which you are in.

I can never be that good at math. I guess why is because i always fall asleep in the middle of class.

I never sleep during school.

@Tim
High school algebra 2, I am one of the four people who made an A as a over all grade in my teacher’s course this semester.

I am the 1%.

So your teacher had 400 students this semester?
That’s the only way you could be the 1%.
That seems like a giant class size!
(Come on people. Math is fun!)

How do you not? The shit there is so boring. It’s a huge challenge just to stay awake.
