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.

Alternate Universe stories can be so much fun when done properly, but this…
This is just sad. And not only is it terrible, but they KNOW it’s terrible, and are just taunting us with how it COULD have been better.

Fuck them, I’ve read fanfics that handled Alt-Uni better than this.

Commented on CR strikes again!

Everybody in this post and comment section are using names and abbreviations, and I have no idea what any of it fucking means.

Now, from the top, could someone please explain to me who and what the fuck is going on? I am 100% lost.
Thanks in advance.

Commented on Not another DeviantARTer...

In response to the question in the notes regarding downvotes, I would wager to guess it’s due to the fact that Rage Comics were officially considered a dead horse two whole years ago. People downvote rage comics on sight.

Mmm, that creepypasta was delicious.
Reminds me a little bit of another spooky short story I read quite recently, called the Nothing Equation.

It’s about a man working in a research craft out in the space between galaxies. It is a tiny, one-man vessel. Each of the last two researchers to be in the craft for an extended period of time went insane. He is the next replacement.

Well, also, let’s keep in mind that even if we brought Dinosaurs back, they wouldn’t (for the most part) pose a threat to Earth’s current ecosystems. Mainly because the climactic conditions during the age of Dinosaurs was way different from now. Hotter, and more oxygen rich. Dinosaurs would only survive in captivity.

“Oldest Known (AKA, surviving) Melody.”
Number 6.

Makes me sad we don’t have the other ones.

Commented on Tumblr Can Turn Anything Beautiful Into Something Horrifying

Holy shit, my family on my dad’s side lives on this lake, I was just over there last weekend for my Great Grandma’s 99th birthday. I swim in this lake every summer!

It’s a glacier-fed lake, which is why the water is so pristine. It also means it’s icy cold as fuck to swim in, no matter what time of year.

Fucking awesome lake for wearing swimming goggles.

Just because LezHuarez got banned, it doesn’t mean you need to try so hard to take his job.

Out of curiosity, does him being banned mean that all his posts are gone too?
Are his shitposts 404 now?

It’s… fake?
I literally shed a tear just now. Paper Mario TTYD was my fucking GAME.

On that note though, I hope SSBU features a remix of Rawk Hawk and Macho Grubba’s themes:

Is it just me, or have Youtube comments become even worse since the move over to G+ integration.
I mean, there were always dumb comments before, but the worse stuff was either downvote-buried or marked as spam, with the good stuff being upvoted into the top comments spot.

Now, since the downvote button literally does not work (it does nothing, you can click it but nothing happens), it’s like Facebook. even the most asinine, retarded shit can somehow get boosted up.

As far as the actual video goes, it was cute, though the vertical capture mode is of course annoying as always.
