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.

Based upon that short animation the Hub released for EqG a week ago, it appears that they’re going the “seen not heard” approach to her character.

I’d love to keep it that way. I like the idea of a musician who’s voice we never hear. Leave the talking to the fan stuff.

Commented on I'm thinking of watch Pupa.

Well, it might not be brand spanking new, but since no one in the western world seems to know this show exists… check out Yamato 2199!

A remake of the classic Uchuu Senkan Yamato from back in the late 70s. High budget, filled with lots of love, great action and a story that has stood up pretty well after 40 years.

Trailer (sorry, couldn’t find a decent upload that had subs):

How does a movie mispronounce the main character’s fucking name?!

It helps if you stand back and look at the image from far away.

Good ol’ Kajetokun. 2006-era nostalgia.

And unlike most Internet in Real Life sort of deals, it’s actually not terrible. I was pleasantly surprised after watching it a few times to discover that it’s not just some kind of meme parade with shitty commentary like Tosh.0.
It’s genuinely clever and enjoyable to watch.

I love it when people try to use analogies to support their position but just end up creating a huge pile of logical fallacies that falls down under the lightest amount of scrutiny.

I remember when people like MenloMarseilles and PensivePony had the entire show’s worth of episodes uploaded. Hell, the Pilot episode of S1 had over a million views!

Seemed like it wasn’t until the latter half of S2, not even until S3 that Hasbro started really cracking down hard on episode uploads. I guess the franchise became successful enough that they started caring about it.

>That last episode.

Absolutely goddamn amazing. This whole anime is 10/10 in my books.
