WHO ARE YOU PEOPLE!? Please post on my wall and introduce yourself. If I don’t really know you or talk to you, I will not friend you. If you are still just embarrassingly sitting in my follow list then it is because I have no idea who you are and I find it awkward. If you seek to change that then socialize!
Some guy who codes websites and
drinks excessivelyis a now a recovering former alcoholic
DnB, Trance, Dubstep and a bit of House. Favorites include BSE, SoM, Pendulum, The Upbeats, Shapeshifter and Seba.
Metal is fine too. Don’t mind Rammstien, Disturbed or System of a Down.
I am a bass addict. No bass, not interested
I’m a trained PHP web developer. I’m all about the code.
I started the famous trend of themed profiles when I discovered a way to inject my own CSS and Jquery into my profile….but then people abused that and now you can’t do it anymore. Dumbasses
I browse KYM because its a fast way to follow what’s happening in internet culture. Net culture fascinates me and how differently it works compared to every other culture in the world despite being part of every other culture in the world. Plus I like the discussions we have here
I like sci-fi. But not the “UFO blows up New York” crap, I mean real sci-fi such as Star Trek, Stargate, Aliens, Predator…you know all that stuff from before Hollywood ran out of ideas. Then again the internet is pretty much my TV nowadays. The following summarizes my modern TV experience:
Obligatory profile music
Do you believe the western sun is falling down on everyone?
In my first comment here (beginning of the comments), I was doubtful this would have meme potential and I suggested that we wait.
Well one day later and here we are: This has really taken off and is definitely making headlines so I take back that doubt. PETA is generating more feedback from this stunt than other move they made. I thinking that’s because it got the enormous Pokemon fandom involved. Don’t mess with the Pokefans
The forum thread on this may have gained some commotion but I would be surprised if this new stunt by PETA carries any more memetic potential than anything else they have done.
Commotion is usually all they stir. You could easily lump all of the PETA events into a single PETA article that documents their highly memetic hatedom
You could however point out the memes that wormed their way into the game. For instance “I HERD U LEIK MUDKIPS” appeared in it. That’s +1 spread for Mudkips thats worth noting either here or over in the Mudkip entry
In the meantime, just wait on this for a moment and see if anything comes out of it
I take it you like Shadow of the Colossus and/or epic orchestrals?
I only ever seen SotC once from looking over the shoulder of another guy playing it on his PS2. Never got a chance to try it myself though.
I have no freaking idea!
We should probably do something about that. It just isn’t right.
Mmm epic boss fight music. We can add that.
Any other ideas?
I knew that one must have been out there because someone dumped some tumbr comic panels featuring exactly that inside the MLP image gallery. I’d find them but…yea…MLP image gallery. Good luck finding anything that isn’t tagged.
The images didn’t label the source either so I never found it.
This was awhile ago so perhaps said Tumblr never took off and has since been taken down.
Well done boys, that’s another target down. We’re making great progress to WORLD DOMINATION
Goddammit Pinkie! I needed that secondary monitor! Do you know how much harder my work is with only one screen?
While I’m updating my profile I decided to refresh the music menu. If anyone wants to see something added, just ask. If I like it, I’ll add it.
So because of some Bronies on the internet, it is therefore heroic to go out into the public, deface property, spread hate against a childrens cartoon and create offensive slurs against autists? Some hero you got there
…Oh wait, I guess that would make you a hero by /b/’s [low] standards.
I’ve seen bigger comment sections shitstorms than this one
I’m being melodramatic. He doesn’t really hate you…yet.
I’m just warning you that he won’t be happy to find out. He hates people who turn their profiles into ridiculous colors and the people who help them do it. So does Chris, both of the head mods are prepared to do something about that
He knows that I ignore profile modding requests but he also knows I am at the root of the whole thing so I still have to answer for it. I get in trouble if you do.
I had to resort to ignoring requests, I think you will need to as well.
Just letting you know that Randomman hates you for helping people change their profiles. If it were his choice, he would probably make it a bannable offense
And he comes to me about it too. I don’t want to get in any more trouble, thanks.
Technically speaking, Francis made an accurate observation.
You do realise that Francis gets a raging boner every time someone makes a comment like that?
I think the last line is a Pinkie Pie quote
How do you know the mural was painted unlawfully?
But regardless, I think there’s a big difference between painting a wall compared making an uncalled-for hate-slur against people with autism while destroying other peoples hard work.
If nobody is in the right, I’d still stay somebody is more in the right than the other.
“I don’t understand the need with bronies to ponify everything,”
Why do Sonic fans make OC’s?
Why do Furries like foxes?
Why do Pokefans make fakemon?
Why do Dolanites make Dolan comics?
Answer: There isnt one! No fandom needs a good reason for anything they do. They simply do what they please
No, we don’t have to ponify everything but we do it anyway because we can and we have as much basic right draw whatever we want as any other fandom.
If you are asking the bigger question: “Why is MLP so popular in the first place?” then please refer to my earlier comment that I gave to Ron a page back.
But I have to say that it’s disappointing to hear an artist call any art “pointless”. “Points” imply that art is bounded by reason and you should know that it is not. In fact, the point of making MLP fanart is as good as the point of making fanart for anything else.
TL;DR version of previous post:
Same reason why people make macros, R63, advice animals, rage comics, snowclones or any other meme…
…because we can.
Allow me to give you a proper answer.
I’ve ponified things before. Why did I do it? Well I got bored one day and decided to ponify something. It passed the time. There’s no complex ulterior motive in it. It’s just bored people who like drawing looking for an excuse to be creative…and also make things look ironically cute.
And it really is an exercise in creativity. You ask yourself these questions: “What would this look like if it was a pony?”, “What would the color set be?”, “What would the cutie mark be?”, “Would there be any abnormalities?”, “Unicorn, Pegasus or Horse?” etc etc. It’s fun coming up with all these concepts of how various objects looks like in pony form and its fun seeing what idea’s other people come up with too.
What’s more, it’s fun seeing the confused/angry reactions that ponifications sometimes get. That’s all there is to it really. Though if you are not the artistic type, you probably won’t see the appeal in that.
Comment that unsympathetically presents you with a single dealwithit.gif animation
To all the random people who chose to follow me despite not once ever interacting with me:
Short answer: Because its fun.
Long answer: It’s way too complicated for this comment section. Try taking your question to the Pony General thread.
Yea, when I read the dialog. I read it in self-appointed voices.
Emi sounds a bit like Pinkie
Lilly speaks pleasant, calm, posh like the queen of england
Rin sounds boyish, deep and tired/unimpressed/sarcastic
Misha sounds like Misty except her laugh is more annoying
Oh gawd, what have you got me into Twins? WHAT HAVE YOU DONE!?
And yea I’ve managed to appropriate each character to a pony in exactly that way
Emi = Pinkie and Dash (fun and fast)
Hanako = Definitely Fluttershy. All the way Fluttershy
Rin = Bit of Applejack (she’s a solid worker) a bit of Spike (takes little seriously) a bit of Lyra (ambiguous personality) and a bit of Zecora (outsider)
Lilly = Celestia (so upper class)
Shizune = Twilight and Dash (all business and very competitive)
Misha = All the way Pinkie
When I get to the end of Emi’s storyline, I’ll warn you about any feels I encounter.
As for all the Twins/BSOD shipping, it doesn’t really phase me. Ivan and RMan can do whatever. I don’t care what happens either (It’s only jokes right?). People just like having something to draw and you happen to be a great inspiration to us all
Eldar are deer and Orks are pigs. Brilliant! :D
