About

Wow, it’s been a really long time since I updated my wall.

Overall I’d say I’m a pretty average netizen. I watch the occasional anime when I have time, my traditional favorites being Trigun, Neon Genesis Evangelion, and Starblazers (Uchuu Senkan Yamato). Also, as you can tell by my avatar, I’m a fan of MLP (though I try my best to not be obnoxious about it), and western cartoons/animation in general.

As far as gaming goes, I see myself gravitate primarily towards the indie and retro circles, though of course I love the occasional triple AAA release. I like strategy games such as Dwarf Fortress and the Civilization series, most games that Valve makes, and really anything that looks fun. These days I mostly do my gaming through Steam, and if you want to friend me here’s my profile:

I’ve always been really interested in internet culture, I think it’s really fascinating to observe how things spread and mutate over time. That’s why I’ve loved KYM so much.

Within the MLP fandom, I enjoy all the fantastic fan content our artists create. I don’t watch as many videos or listen to as much music as I used to, but I still dabble in those. Primarily these days I’m into the art and fanfiction.

Speaking of fanfiction, my only real claim to fame in this fandom would be my story, I Wasn’t Prepared For This. It received a far better reaction than I ever could have hoped for. Still, things IRL have held me back from continuing it for a long time, though I hope to bring it out of hiatus very soon.

Unfortunately, I live deep in the mystical land of American Suburbia, so I don’t exactly own the real-estate required for a horse.

The first thing I think of when looking at this entry is the glorious comic, Sweet Bro and Hella Jeff.

The comic reuses panels in future strips all the time, and everything is saved as compressed jpegs so that shit gets more lossy as the comic goes on. The later strips get pretty crazy looking.

@Timstuff
I’m really interested in what Lauren will have to say about all of this, perhaps ten years down the road when this is all more distant and she can talk more freely.
I do agree with you, I fully believe that there was some stuff going on behind closed doors which we have yet to know about, and maybe some time in the future we’ll finally get to learn exactly what happened.

And yeah, at the very least we have two fantastic seasons of the show, which is impressive all on its own considering the franchise’s previous history. It’s just too bad things had to go downhill so abruptly this past year.

Something tells me Applejack prefers it this way.

Someday some brony in the news industry should rig one of those computers to turn on the show right in the middle of such an interview.
For the lulz.

(of course, if they were caught they’d be fired, so perhaps it’s not the best idea I’ve ever had…)

My entire class hated this book, but I fucking loved it.
I think I finished the whole thing in three or four days, I couldn’t put it down!

One of the best analogies I’ve ever seen for Nintendo’s success.
All the other big companies spend their time trying to reinvent the wheel and/or alienating customers with annoying bullshit meant to capture wider audiences, while Nintendo just sits there doing the same thing they’ve been doing for 30 years:
Making some fucking games.

This is one of those images that reminds me how woefully few anime’s I’ve watched.
If only I didn’t have to sleep…
