Last night I wondered.How many of you dudes brush your pony's hair?Last night I wondered.9 months ago in Personal More Like This
Do you use the little comb that came with the figure? Or do you use your own comb? Maybe a beard comb?
Ladies brush hair all the time... So I'm mostly curious how many guyfolk do it. Because I have this hilarious picture in my head of random dudes secretly brushing their pony's hair when they're sure no one else is around. Middle and high school boys, college guys, and young adults alike.
Shipping: what does RedApropos think?So, someone once told me that as a popular comic artist in the fandom, my opinions travel much farther than I am even aware.Shipping: what does RedApropos think?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
On that note, people ask me/talk to me about shipping. Do I ship ponies?
I do! I ship the fuck out of ponies. These are the pairings I support, or in other words, the best pairings, and the only pairings that aren't dumb (I worded it that way to evoke an emotional response; it may or may not express how I really feel (it does)).
Applejack and Rarity.
Applejack and Rainbow Dash.
Fluttershy and Rainbow Dash.
Twilight and Rainbow Dash.
Twilight and Trixie.
RedApropos and Applejack (my OTP (just kidding (not really))).
So there you have it. Go on now, start discussions about how they make sense or don't make sense. What are your favourite pairings? I don't give a shit, but someone else in the comments box might!
For goodness sake, people, I don't ship them all at once!
AppleDash OR FlutterDash OR TwiDash.
RariJack OR AppleDash.
What is a Brony?While for a while the term Brony was used to mean boy, teenager or adult male who likes my little pony: friendship is magic, in this group we use the word to mean anybody who likes the show. A gender neutral word. Similarly to how "Cool story bro" isn't always directed at males.What is a Brony?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Bronies, to me, are anybody who likes the show, no matter how much they like it.
False terms. Sane vs Rabid.
People obsess over all sorts of things don't they? I remember when I was younger being completely obsessed with Pokémon. I'd want all the games, I'd watch all the shows, I'd want all the trading cards. I still have many of my trading cards now because they still give me happiness when I can play with them with my friends. Did that make me a rabid Pokémon fan? No.
I think we all could use a bit of child like joy like that in our lives some times. Like when you are gaming or when you are maybe watching a funny YouTube video or whatever, it's nice to have that feeling.
Is it bad to be obsessive over a show

I have NOTHING but good things to say about the folks I’ve had the pleasure of talking to, hanging out with and calling my friends in the My Little Pony fan community. When it comes down to it, everyone is here because of one reason- they like the tiny horse cartoon. Bottom line. I’ve never run into a single instance of the legion creepy, pervy, fedora-wearing, neckbeard misogynist bullies that are claimed to populate every pony-friendly website and convention.

THIS IS A FUCKING LONG DREAMI had a dream last night about people that were in a type of insane asylum, and a girl, her brother, and her father were at the beach right next to it. And the girl had fallen into a rocky stream nearby, and went down the river. The father and the brother didnt notice, and kept doing what they were doing. The girl eventually cried out and screamed, yelling at her father for not helping her, as she started to climb back.THIS IS A FUCKING LONG DREAM9 months ago in Personal More Like This
she got back, and her father yelled at her, and they argued. Eventually she was taken back into the house.
Later that night, she went out into the beach, and dug into the sand. She dug for quiet a while, I guess trying to get her mind off the fact that she hates her family? Until she dug far, and a big patch of yellow started to glow, covering her in light. She put her hand into it, and went inside the light.
She was sucked into a world, a beachy area with people dancing and singing, and be generally happy. It was basically heaven. She was approached by a person, that g
PCOS Awareness MonthAs some of you probably remember from past years, PCOS Awareness Month began on Monday. I've known I've had PCOS since I was thirteenPCOS Awareness Month2 months ago in Personal More Like This
years old, and it's something that I feel needs attention.
EDIT - Along with featuring art, I'm considering including quotes about PCOS, so if you've got something to share, please comment!
All that aside, here's some basic truth about PCOS:
PCOS stands for Poly-Cystic Ovary Syndrome.
PCOS affects as many as 6-10% of woman, but most don't even know it exists, let alone that they have it.
PCOS can cause insulin resistance which can lead to the onset of Type II Diabetes.
Not only can it lead to Diabetes, PCOS has also been linked with high blood pressure, heart disease, and certain cancers.
PCOS is a leading cause of infertility in women, though not all woman are affected by this.

The Last Shooter: Spec Ops the LineThis discussion came to me while watching a walkthrough of this game and I felt like putting it somewhere.The Last Shooter: Spec Ops the Line2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm generally a fan of Shooter video games. They're fast paced, require a certain amount of skill to complete (the good ones) and are exciting to play with gorgeous vistas, creative monsters, and sometimes interesting plots to unravel like in Bioshock, which I still consider one of the best game plots of all time. Shooters to me are less aggravating then fighting games, less time consuming then roleplaying games, less lonesome generally then puzzle games if you can find friends to co-op. Certainly Shooters have gotten a little samey over the past few thanks to everyone either copying Modern Warfare or Gears of War but some of my fondest gaming memories remain co-opping with my brothers on Halo 3 and having a blast.
I've seldom played a straight up military shooter. My confusion originally lay in why anyone would want to play a video game with such a limited arse

Loki: The God of Mischief
Freya: The Goddess of Love
One day, Thor's hammer was stolen. Loki searched for it, and found that the giant Thrym had hidden the hammer, and refused to give it back unless Freya became his wife. The gods worked out a plan to get the hammer back while keeping Freya safe. Thor was dressed up as a beautiful woman and Freya even lent him her neckalce. Thor had a bristling red beard, so he must have looked ridiculous! He was sent to the giant and Loki went with him. At first the giant was worried about his bride's enormous appetite and fierce eyes, but Loki convinced him that it was Freya. Finally, the giant brought out Thor's hammer, and gave it to his new bride. Thor gave an enormous roar, tore off his wedding dress, and killed the giant with his hammer.

REMEMBER THAT city or local ordinances still prevail over all these laws. If the city or county in which you live prohibits the possession of such an animal where you live, you would be in violation of local ordinances. To find out the laws in each city and county, you would need to check with each entity individually.
UK-England, Scotland, etc:
you do not require a permit or any other paper work as they are not on the DWAL list.
as for paperwork there is none which is a bonus to living in the UK plus you can move anywhere you want in the UK and you can take your furry friend with you.

It's been a long time since I wrote a journal… it's been quite a while since I was active anyway! It's about time I tried and change all that laziness into something productive!
Now this journal is not so much an update on what keeps me busy these days but more of an extended story of a very, very special photo submission of a moment in my life that I'll never forget.
The moment I am talking about is the life-changing hug you can see below.
Now let the story begin;
Little more than a year ago I was taking on the challenge of getting my drivers license. My instructor was an awesome guy and was interested in photography just like me! During the many hours we spent driving around we also spoke of fursuiting a lot because I just love to tell people about what keeps me busy and the things I enjoy doing.
During one driving lesson I spoke of the idea of fursuiting in the local zoo "Diergaarde Blijdor

No body is getting promoted...
I have no idea how long that will last but I'm not about to reenlist to find out!
Anyway, if all goes according to plan, I'll be leaving Japan (and the Navy) in early October of this year and will be looking for jobs again...
Oh who am I kidding? I'm gonna try out for American Idol, The Voice, The X Factor, and America's got Talent! (Hey, you never know until you try right? )

Remember people dont tell others how to behave, it makes you immature and a hater. I knew I shouldnt trust my parents and teatchers, they are so immature and old compared to me so they cant go tell people how to behave.

From the moment i met you through skype i feel like a big part of me is opening up that i thought i locked up away after being rejected and felt so alone. Through the years of my life i had little friends and those little friends weren't as good of a real and true friend as i thought.
We may not know each other for a long time, but for some reason i feel a special bond between us that no force can break.
you gys made me feel like i'm apart of something and i'm not afraid to be myself. Even you guys accept my corny cheesy jokes for what they are and don't judge me.
It's my turn now to repay you for all your kindness and for accepting me as your friend and who i am.

Many times a friend or a deviant has said to me, "oh I could never fold origami, I'm not gifted that way", but it's just not true! As part of projecteducate's Artisan Crafts week, I'm going to show you how simple it is to find and fold something gorgeous and to present it well to your internet audience.
With just a little inspiration and a bit of patience, ANY one of us could fold something absolutely lovely. So what are you waiting for?? Let's get folding!
1) BE INSPIRED
First of all, you need to figure out what you want to fold. You need inspiration from looking at gorgeous origami, from admiring nature and the world around, or maybe it'll just hit you like a random lightning bolt.
