@Jackal Lantern

That was an excellent reply, thanks for that. I had never made that particular connection between the episodes’ stories and the styles of the writers. Naturally, I’ve had a basic sense for certain writers like AKR who tend to make well-received episodes overall, but your further insight into the matter intrigues me. As you said, it would be quite nice if someone like Morrow was behind the script for Fluttershy’s dragon escapade, but whoever writes it, I have no doubt I’m going to enjoy the living muffins out of it anyway.


@Possible villain guy

I’ve been withholding my opinion on this fellow to see what everyone else’s thoughts on him are. He does look remarkably cliche in many ways, but the creative team has never really let me down with new characters before, so I guess I’ll just wait and see.

I’m neutral about the villan for Season 3. I mean we didn’t saw him in an episode yet.
It may turn out that he is not a bad guy after all. Who knows?
The design could be better, It looks like something that crawled out fromHomestuck

That statement is an insult to Homestuck. It looks like it crawled out of the Facebook Ponymaker.

Heh, I love that Tara doesn’t mind what people do behind closed doors, but yeah, don’t go out and speak about it in public or in places such as here. I know there are sites that don’t mind that, but KYM is not one of ’em.

As for Howard Stern himself and his show, I’ll refer you to Daring Do’s new book.

just gonna state something not regarding anything pony related, but towards Stern.

No my parents never really knew that I knew about Stern. Not until like I was 12. I personally find him “Amusing”

Tara was pretty reasonable in her response, and I think it’s a good idea. I also think we should ignore Howard, because who gives a fuck?

@Fridge:

Actually, when I first saw that thing I did think it was a ponified character from Homestuck. Sorry, bro, but that’s what it resembles.

@Tara Strong on cloppers

well, that was…reasonable…WHAT HAVE YOU DONE WITH THE REAL TARA, IMPOSTER?!?

@Fridge Logic

Skepticism, applied throughly, leads to an epistemological black hole where nothing is known and nothing can be known. Anyone who claims to be a skeptic and that their skepticism has led them to truth is a hypocrite.

Question

Who is this pony at the bottom of the screen and why do we never talk about her? Was she crushing on Twist or Truffle Shuffle I wonder.

No fucks in there, only clop.

Glad to see Tara is so mature about this sort of thing, her and Faust both. It warms my heart when people who don’t frequent the same places of the Internet as I can look past the bad.

@Fifths

We don’t pay any attention to the other fillies because we’re too busy creating fanon about Scootaloo’s presumably horrible life. In all seriousness, though, it’s not likely she’s crushing on Twist. Twist is worst pony, although I’m wondering why we haven’t seen more of her. Applebloom just sort of abandoned her for her new friends.

@Fifths
That filly is known as Tootsie Flute and while art of her is pretty rare, she is most commonly portrayed as the child (magical lesbian spawn) of Lyra and Bonbon.

Her cutie mark changes sometimes, too.

I dunno…

But seeing a Shining Armor cowering underneath his desk from the gigantic, preggers, hormone-enraged Tyrannosaurus Rex that he once called His “Shmoopie-doopie pony pie” would make me lose my collective sh!t.

I would also enjoy seeing him constantly calling up Celestia and begging her to declare war on Gryffindom so that he would valid excuse to leave his house for over 9 months.

Just a thought, Hasbro…

I’m not really convinced that this new villain is legit. would anything in this show really have a blood stained looking horn? Probably not, right? There’s also no detail in his mane and I’m pretty sure every one we’ve seen so far in the show has at least had lines in it. Unless he’s supposed to have a pitch black mane because he’s so bad or something, I don’t see them breaking design consistency like that and I also think it would be more elaborate. Oh and that horn of his is also missing an outline. Horns are always outlined as far as I know.

Anyways I think he looks okay, but he just doesn’t look like studio B’s work to me so I can help but think he isn’t.

Also this page needs moar Twilight.

@howard stern
What do I think about it?

I’m tired of 1) people talking about cloppers 2) cloppers carring what people think. People shouldn’t concern themselves with something so trivial as what people find attractive, and cloppers should understand that it is out of the norm so they should expect people to be weirded out by that a bit and learn to not care about it. It’s really agrivating that it always comes to this everywhere ponies are mentioned. Let’s try to stay away from this topic for a while plz.

@faust and Strong
They do seem to be pretty tolorant towards that, but the cynic inside me thinks they just don’t want to alinate anyone in the fandom or cause controversies, so they are taking a neutral stance. Then again, they could actually not care. The world may never know…

It’s things like that that keeps me watching the show.
When Fluttershy is being all “assertive”, she acts by the assertiveness tips Iron Will gave her, or just copies his mannerisms.

I honestly thought he was serious until I saw the end of it. When I saw the end I laughed. But through the entire video I just stared blankly at the screen thinking if this guy was serious.

Oh yeah, the comments on that video are like no other.

Seriously, people like talked so much shit about us that it reached a point where that has no impact to the Brony-community as a whole.
If only women liked My Little Pony nobody would talk such things, but if men like it there is a HUGE shitstorm.
Is this what society has come to? Hate people because they like different things?

@Pony survey video
It is a parody, it even states that at the end of the video, but I do admit that it did rustle my jimmies a bit until the favorite pony section, that made me realize it was a parody.

@Howard Stern Video
Who is Howard Stern and why should I care? His name sounds like a washed out actor.

Ha! Shows what you know! The like/dislike ratio is mostly positive, as a matter of fact. Have a little faith in your fellow brony, Dac. (Note: You may find a number of goofballs in the comments, but that’s only because the goofballs are the ones who comment.)


@BoxFigs, below

Yes, it’s a parody of the criticisms that bronies receive, meant to sarcastically convey the hypocrisy of many of the complaints people have against us fans. I began to realize that when he started making fun of both the young and old, the hetero and the homo, etc. and so on, especially the best pony thing. The only thing I dislike about it is how much attention this kind of joke seems to get.

@Howard Stern (and practically the rest of the media)

That type of reaction would be understandable if this was about the previous MLP generations. And that is what many people expect it to be. Even I thought the same thing at first. But we all know it’s different than those past generations, it has been made to be more like a regular cartoon.

@Video that X-singular posted

WHAT IS THIS I DON’T EVEN

That’s an example of when people want to find a reason to believe something, they’ll find a reason, no matter how much they have to skew facts. He had the belief in his head that all bronies are homosexual, so he automatically thought the respondents who said they were hetrosexual were lying. He also seems to think that “favorite” means “most sexually attracted to” on the favorite pony list, and finding something negative to say about the fans of each pony listed.

In general, he seems to think his opinions are fact and is attempting to justify them. It’s pitiful that some people aren’t open to changing their opinions.
He’s so negative it makes me wonder if he’s made of antimatter.

Wait a minute, how the hay did he know what the characters’ personalties are in order to say those negative things? He must’ve gone on the MLP Wiki or something.
I don’t think he has a favorite pony, he just chose one of the less popular ones to have something negative to say.

I have no idea what a “SPERG” is, but it can’t be something good.

EDIT: Wait, that video is a joke?! That was so not obvious.

(Sheesh, I can’t type today. I keep messing up.)

@chowsburgerz:
Cadence came right out of nowhere. It would be cool if they did eps on Cadence/Shining Armor but it’s fairly unlikely. Chances are they are going to have a kid; the real question is, will it be an alicorn since Cadence, or will pony genetics break the laws of biology yet again?
Of course, the safe money is on Cadence/Shining Armor getting Chuck Cunningham Syndrome.

@ the Howard Stern topic: he’s a “shock-jock,” so he naturally wants to rustle a few jimmies. What better way than bringing up bronies, anthro, etc.? It’s a program, so no big deal.

I guess for first post I’ll share a quick story. A few days ago I was celebrating a college graduation with some friends at my house. I had a lot to drink (par for the course) and blacked out at 2 or 3 a.m. Woke up feeling peachy, but when I logged on to Xbox I realized I’d switched my gamertag to “RBowDash” the previous night. Lol’d fucking hard at that. Hey, but really, I REGRET NOTHING! Hope to have some good conversations with y’all.

@Tim
Howard Stern is a radio ‘shock jock’ who is essentially paid to try to be as offensive as humanly possible at pretty much all times.
That implies that nothing he says should be taken very seriously, but no doubt it will be by people on both sides of the issue.
I personally don’t find him funny in the slightest so I could not possibly care less about his opinion.

@BoxFigs
His reaction, while ‘understandable,’ is still not justifiable beyond a very short time span.
Yes, everyone was initially a little weirded out by the idea of guys liking MLP, but anyone with an ounce of tolerance or human decency would say, ‘You like MLP?! Huh? Well, okay then,’ and move on.
Finding someone that you feel is weird and then using a national media platform to attack them is just dumb.
That goes for fans of current MLP and past generations.
Just because the older ones are less popular doesn’t suddenly make the fans more open to or deserving of ridicule.

@The Second Video
Seems we need to say this again but IT’S A PARODY!
Come on guys, he literally insults every single demographic breakdown in the study.
It’s pretty obvious even without the giveaway at the end.
I was laughing the whole time, especially when I noticed Eminem singing ’Mom’s spaghetti’ in the background.

@Krebs
Always glad to have some new people ’round these parts!

I’m going to love those comments in the YouTube video.
 
Also, amongst more than just opspe and I, KYM has put out “Ponysexual” and contradictory answers (which I still stand by,) for people to laugh at.

I say that we got good information from the fandom and we made people laugh. Win/win situation.

Hello, welcome to the thread. RandomMan is now your all mighty master, and you are now part of his army of bitches like we all are. You will love it here, we drive all newcomers to insanity love making new friends. I’m the regular picture guy who rarely ever talks. So this is a rare experience. Also, rule #1 of this thread: Please don’t talk about what happened to Derpy. We had a lot of conflict when it happened, and we would like no one to bring it up. Rule #2: Rainbow Dash is best pony and don’t you forget it. Rule #3: Remember to have fun.
