Bwahaha! now my profile has BOXES!Hey KYM, wazzup? if you don’t know me, i’m an avid Brony who mostly hangs out in the Photo Galleries. in terms of where i stand on ponies n’ stuff, i’m really into the extraordinary artists who have created so much amazing content for the MLP fandom, from music to videos to fanart.
i’ve always been really interested in memes and internet culture, i think it’s really fascinating to find out how things spread and mutate, like a big mystery puzzle. when i discovered KYM, it was like coming home to a big extended family i never knew about. i love all you, you guys are great.
besides my obvious affinity for net culture, i’m also an avid gamer, primarily in the Indie and retro circles.oh boy, here we go!the abridged version is that i was turned into a brony almost instantly. an acquaintance on a forum mentioned bronies during a discussion, and i asked him in a separate Private Message what a brony was (since i had never heard of them before). in response, he sent me a link to the first episode, and i was quickly hooked. a week later, i had seen every episode. this was back in mid-June 2011, so i joined the fandom near the beginning of the epic wait for Season Two.
personally, i think it was a fantastic time to have become a brony. not too early (all that chan-ban drama, no developed fandom infrastructure or identity), but also not too late (i was able to be there for a lot of the early content and artists, back before things got drowned out by giant floods of content).
spaceas i stated in my introduction, i’m mainly into PC games, primarily in the retro and indie circles. i still love consoles, i just haven’t had any big reasons to play new games on them. i grew up as a Nintendo kid, my first console was the N64. later we got an XBox and a 360 as well, but we’ve never owned a Playstation.
will be expanding later once i think of stuff
Although interestingly enough, as I far as I remember, the kinds of distances involved with a collision event like this means that when it comes down to it, nothing really bad will happen to our solar system. The night sky (ignoring for a moment all that stuff about the expanding sun) would just look a million times more cool.
Galaxy-wide, the greater orbits of the stars around the core will be completely wrecked. If humanity were spread out across a substantial chunk of stars (perhaps one of the “swirls” of our galaxy), those stars would all get flung away from each other over the course of hundreds of millions of years.
Potentially, an event like this would fling the seeds of humanity far and wide, eventually leaving them too far away from each other to continue sustained contact.
… this sounds like a cool idea for a sci-fi book.
Shinx Sphinx is such a bro.
Yes, because me praying for somebody automatically means that I am not also donating money.
That makes complete sense.
Honestly I can never understand this sort of logic. Some of the most altruistic people that I know are also very religious. They give a lot to charity and give their own precious time to community service projects. Praying (and asking others to pray) for people in need, is just one of the things they do.
One of the best licensed games I’ve ever played in my entire life.
Good, well-designed gameplay, solid controls, lots of level variety that took advantage of many different show locations, dialogue and cutscenes that are still funny to this day, with a great soundtrack that fit the setting perfectly.
This game really made me feel like I was playing in a Spongebob episode (multiple different episodes, really). Even after all this time, I can still visualize most of the levels in my head without any effort at all. They were memorable and unique, I never got the feeling like I was “going through the motions” when it came to platforming.
I had the xbox version, so I don’t know how many differences there are between the two consoles’ versions, but I look back on Battle For Bikini Bottom with a lot of fondness.
Blizzard you magnificent bastards.
Knowing their skill at making RTSs, their upcoming Moba should be a very solid game, and I fully expect it to add some pretty interesting new elements to the formula.
Canada: it’s not America.
I actually did this on a video, but then chickened out and deleted my comment, for fear of somebody actually flagging it.
I’d rather not get banned from Youtube, so I’ve been sticking to posting Half Life: Full Life Consequences and James Joyce’s Ulysses.
I should just make an alt account for this stuff.
Yeah, I was wondering about that too.
Only most of us are evil, disgusting blights against nature!
Excellant vork, comerads!

Seriously Hasbro, kill yourself. Is it really necessary to spoil everything at every opportunity.
As if Hasbro has any say in what a random group of neckbeards are doing in some random theater.
Honestly Mr. Reyes, do you get mad at the weatherman when he predicts rain?
Better idea: Jame’s Joyce’s Ulysses
This laptop explodes whenever I try and copy it though (it DOES work, the laptop just can’t really get past that), so I’ll have to wait until I get back home.
Will post something if I’m successful.
Maybe, [GASP], she IS Button’s Mom!
Thanks to the new comment system:
One: there currently is no way to mark things as spam, and new spambot messages have already started popping up with even more inflated upvotes than before.
Two: the character limit seems to have been removed entirely. People have been posting entire chapters of books in their comments. My own personal touch was to paste the entirety of Half Life: Full Life Consequences (including all the sequel chapters written by squirrelking) and posting that pasta in a couple different places.
Three: on videos that have not yet recieved the update, the ability to reply/mark for spam/flag for inappropriate content/upvote/downvote has been removed.
Real smooth, Google. Not only did you just implement a completely shitty and unnecessary change, but you did it so lazily that you’ve broken half the site in the process. If you were going to do this, you should have at least put some fucking effort and thought into it. It’s clear that this decision was not carefully considered before being pushed out the door.
That, or their web designers are blood-drinking lizard people from Andromeda.
We need to hurry up and take advantage of this before it gets fixed.
I encountered the same problem back when they started doing this to me earlier this year.
The most horrifying thing is that they’ve rolled it out gradually, only doing it to a few people at a time over the course of months so that there would be less complaining.
Oh my god it’s fucking legit.
He really said that.
… I’m so happy right now you cannot even believe.
Just wait until he discovers the wonders of carbon-monoxide detectors!
Get wrekt, Apple.
But seriously where the fuck did Samsung find 1 billion dollars worth of nickels?
The new versions of IE are actually pretty good, the only real reason I use chrome these days is because of gmail and stuff.
Even then, I’m starting to get really tired of Google’s shit.
Honestly, I think IE gets way too much hate.
I’ve seen moments when they said things along the lines of “well the fans draw lots of humanized fanart, clearly they’d be really into seeing the characters turned into humans!”
Can’t remember who said that though, but I’m certain it’s been said before by somebody in there.
