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.

I don’t care about the World Cup either.
But, I’m an American, so I suppose it’s no big surprise that I would be more interested in American Football than Soccer/Futbol.

IT DOESN’T MAKE ANY SENSE.
YET IT’S STILL HILARIOUS.
WHY.

U wot m8.

Also, kids who go to church generally are part of their Youth Group program. Y’know, where they learn to interact with other kids their age. Yes, building communities is such an insane concept.

Commented on Tumblr sure hates Bronies...

Site full of feminists and other various social groups who demand ‘equality’ and respect for their causes, claiming oppression against them by society.

Purposefully treats the brony fandom like shit, despite that fandom’s willingness to appreciate and celebrate a female-centric show.

This double-standard.

It’s amazing how something so terrible can be so beautiful at the same time.
What a time to be alive.

Commented on Leaked DHX assets...

Hmmm.
On one hand, this sounds like fearmongering, blowing a small thing out of proportion. I haven’t really been that involved in the MLP Youtube/animation scene as of late, so I wouldn’t have personal experience with the extent of these supposed C&D orders. However, I haven’t seen any such shitstorms blowing through KYM, and I would have expected anything significant to be here. The most recent thing I can think of was the Buttonpacolypse.

On the other hand, this article is by Capper, whose opinions and information I respect. Perhaps we should be worried.

Commented on Splatoon

Man, I can’t wait to get my hands on this game. It looks ultra fun.
I wonder if there will be any kind of single player component, maybe even a campaign, or if it’s purely a multiplayer game.

I’m not exactly the kind of person who would have experience with this sort of thing, but I’ve heard that some people basically do two proposals.

One, the true proposal, which is done privately in an environment where there can be an actual discussion, rather than the classic “Yes or No”.

Then, if it’s Yes, they might do a public thing in the classic way. That way, there’s no traps, but there’s still the magic of a special occasion.

I believe I remember seeing this once before.
Still gives me the feels.

Lol, just checked the sauce in the notes.
Can’t believe it’s real. How does someone even fuck up that badly?

The fact that they still haven’t at least fixed the online version of the article yet is even more sad.

Commented on Splatoon vs. Call of Duty - target and actual audience

As someone with a nine-year-old little brother, who often tells me stories of kids in the form of “oh yeah he’s cool, he plays Call of Duty/Halo”, I definitely agree. Kids think that playing ‘Mature’ games makes them more like adults, more cool.
