Commented on Look it's not a puppet

You know, if I had some money to burn, I would buy this thing and start a tumblr with it.

Ask hidey-hole Lyra.

Eventually the censors just stopped giving a fuck.

@Colonel Corncakes

The Spike/Snails ship was serious, this is being played for laughs. Apparently, we’re a lot more comfortable laughing at homosexuals than taking them seriously.

Cruelty has a human heart
And jealousy a human face,
Terror the human form divine,
And secrecy the human dress.

I was reminded of that poem.

@TARINunit9

Hmm, I disagree. If you have a character who is completely motivated by chaos and evil for chaos and evil’s sake, then they fail to be a villain. They become like a hurricane or tornado, an unseeing, unfeeling force of nature that just has to be dealt with.

The formula for making a villain is infusing adversity with humanity. He’s not just fucking with us, he’s fucking with us for reasons we can understand. I think the thing about Discord and the joker that makes them good villains isn’t the fact that they practice chaos, but that they practice chaos at the complete disregard for what others have to say about it. It’s like they’re pretending to be Nietzschean supermen, demonstrating that they are superior to everyone else and utterly uncaring how many lives their games destroy. Such hubris is still a very human motivation, and there is nothing more satisfying than to see an arrogant son of a bitch like that get knocked down.

Huh, so that’s what he was looking at.

I think this would have been a lot more powerful without the words, makes it come across as corny, melodramatic, and really out of Gilda’s character. That being said, it still managed to make me feel a little something for a character I don’t particularly care for.

Depends on the mare really.

Oh God, I just realized I’m going to hell…

I think they’re onto something. While the fact that MLP is just a well done show is enough to explain that it has an older audience at all, I think the fact that the whole brony thing blew up the way it did is indicative of something more. Mlp being escapism isn’t that notable, the specific kind of escapism it is is. A farm boy’s escapism consists of dream of adventure while a old soldier longs for peace. Who are we and what world do we occupy that makes us want to escape to the land of brightly colored ponies?

I think ours is a population that is tired of modernity and its thousand shades of grey, that is sick to death of the world and all its gritty realism and painful reality. We’ve grown sick of this mutated mess of a culture, of irony stacked on irony, where denying the cliche has become cliche. Mlp offers a nice break from all that, a world of simple sincerity, and that’s why people flock to it.

@SweetAndDelicious

You know, it’s funny. I remember seeing that picture about a year ago and thinking “fucking brony faggots. What the fuck is this one’s deal anyway, did its mother get gangbanged by a box of crayons?”

Now I see it again and think “Dashie is so cute /)(^3^)(\”

Please don’t compare the minor annoyance we have to put with with our haters to what blacks had to suffer.
