As the group of mares and their accompanying dragon made their way across the broad, cobblestone expanse of the town square, they began to take note of a steady stream of ponies converging on Sugarcube Corner with looks of excitement on their faces. The majority seemed to be fillies and colts.
Twilight cocked a curious eyebrow. "Huh. Looks like a party. I wonder what the occasion is."
Spike flared his wings expectantly and licked his lips. "Maybe they're giving away free samples."
Apple Bloom shook her head. "That ain't likely. Sugarcube Corner hasn't done a giveaway in a long time. Not since ol' A.J. "helped" with the..." She fell silent as her elder sister shot her a glare.
Applejack let out a snort of annoyance, then pursed her lips thoughtfully as they approached the milling herd of ponies surrounding the sweet shop. "A party ain't too likely either, seein' as they're short hoofed with Pinkie bein' set t' have her foal any day now."

The Vinyl Scratch Tapes: The Master RecordingHey guys.The Vinyl Scratch Tapes: The Master Recording2 years ago in Personal More Like This
In case you weren't already aware, earlier this year I wrote a fanfic of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic called the Vinyl Scratch Tapes: http://www.equestriadaily.com/2011/06/story-vinyl-scratch-tapes.html
It quickly somehow became the most popular thing I've written and posted online, which I am pretty proud of. I really enjoyed writing it.
Anyway, a few very talented people set out and are currently making an audio adaptation of it! They've already released a completed adaptation of the first episode. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r-jGp0OxMOY It's really great. Everyone working on it is very talented and very nice. I even wrote some very short additional content for the adaptation (specifically the "commercial break" during the show). The voice acting is really good and I highly suggest checking it out. It's really awesome.
Anyway, sorry if I've been kind of scarce recently. Had a lot of stuff going on, but I'm hoping to be on more than I have been recently.

About hackers on DA and what you can doLately I've seen some jornals here and there spreading a rumor about a hacker loose on DA, the journal, directly copy-pasted reads:About hackers on DA and what you can do2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
"Apparently there's a hacker going around, hacking peoples accounts, and blocking YOUR friends so that they block YOU. You then get in trouble and banned from DA.
If you read this warning, care about those around you, you will spread this word, tell everyone so you aren't this guy's next victim. ALSO, If I block or say something to you that isn't appropriate for NO REASON, it's not me.
Please spread the word so no one you know is the hackers next victim!

A couple weeks ago, I went to a raucous furry party.
Oh heavens, that's an odd way to start a personal story.
A good friend of mine called me up, saying that she and her friend were going to a monthly get-together in Orange County where a bunch of furries throw a party open to everyone. Furries...not really my thing. My experience within the furry community is limited to the occasional commission I get, but when it comes to conversing and interacting with furries, I'm a bit inexperienced.
"Just a party?" I ask.
"Yeah, something they do every month."
"Ah, so just a get-together," I breathe a sigh of relief. "Not like a bunch of fursuiters or crazies."
"..." She replies.

Apparently...it was a bunch of the crazies.

What I See in TUFF Not Many DoIt all started when my fellow deviant :iconWindyCityPuma: first told me about a new cartoon on Nickelodeon where there was a cat voiced by my favorite voice actress Grey DeLisle. And God bless her I love her more now since if it wasn't for her I probably never would have discovered the animated anthropomorphic anarchy that is TUFF Puppy.What I See in TUFF Not Many Do2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Only a little into the series did I begin to find other people disliking it. Common criticisms were that the characters were obnoxious and unlikable, SnapTrap's voice was too annoying, and that it didn't match up to Hartman's previous levels of humor in FOP and Danny Phantom.
My interests tend to shift rapidly throughout my lifetime. For whether personal or artistic reasons they come and go. So despite TUFF Puppy not being among the most recognized or well liked shows out there right now, how come I still stick with it? Well I think now is a good time to share what I see in this show many other people do not.
First and foremost I am an anthropomorphic
My Opinions: Spongebob SqurepantsThis is a review I've been planning on for a while and because I hadn't prior watched any because it started in 1999 it came out around the time I was just in highschool (only cartoon I still watched some of at this point was Johnny Bravo) and so has no nostalgic value to me. Further more I need to add just how influential this show and is deems the last of the "classic" nicktoons, so given this and the fact it's ran so long I chose to see the first 6 episode of every season except 8 for which I could only find 2 episodes of so that I could review the show as a whole and not just it's peak. So enough interlude it's time to see if Spongebob holds up to older more cynical eyes and see just how kind time has been to it.My Opinions: Spongebob Squrepants2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Legend of Korra ReviewI never watched the original Avatar: the Last Airbender series in its entirety due to both lack of time and the length of the series. I've seen a handful of episodes, but aside from those, a lot of what I know of ATLA comes from spoilers, wikis, and fanworks. There's a chance I may finish the series someday, but for now I'll have to settle for Korra, which brings me to the main point of this entry.Legend of Korra Review2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I recently finished watching the first two episodes of the Legend of Korra and, to be honest, during the initial stages of advertising when they put emphasis on a "hotheaded" young girl with a "fiery personality" that was "ready to take on the world" I was initially unsure how to feel. Male or female, "hotheaded" protagonists are a fairly frequent occurrence in fiction, and a number of times can be pretty irritating as far as leading characters go, in my opinion. A part of me was somewhat apprehensive in how they would handle Korra and over the possibility of her "hotheaded" personality bein

The Derpy Issue Part 3Seems like I need to clarify a couple things for people. If you don't know what the hullabaloo is all about, please read through the next couple paragraphs. If you're already caught up to the situation please skip to the second half.The Derpy Issue Part 32 years ago in Personal More Like This
In the first season of Friendship is Magic, an animation mistake rendered a background pony with "derpy" eyes. The producers thought it was cute and left it in, occasionally sticking the pony in various scenes. While many people liked calling her Ditzy Doo (based on a remark made in Winter Round Up), the general internet population started calling her Derpy Hooves. Derpy became such a huge phenomenon online that the producers decided to include her in more episodes for Season 2. In Season 2 she started appearing more up close and doing strange things in the backgrounds, making for a fun game of "where's waldo" for the fans. The capper to all this was when Derpy got a speaking role in an episode and was referred to AS Derpy by Rainbow

So, I just want to say thank you to everyone that's made fan-art, fan-music, fan-anything for Past Sins and Nyx. You really do honor me with your time and energy. Even though all this attention has made some people despise the story, and by association me, I don't regret a moment of it. I'm happy I was able to present a story so many people like, and Past Sins itself has been a massive learning experience for me.

First things first, a statement of unquestionable fact.
YOU ARE A GOOD PERSON.
Surely you are. You'd know if you were bad.
You follow the law. You think for yourself.
You're not arrogant; you're humble.
You help others before yourself if you can.
You love your family and friends, pay your taxes, and take care of animals.
You worry about the environment and do your best to ensure your footprint is minimized.
You support education, science, technology, civil rights, and equality.
You don't like hate, war, greed, lies, racism, and inequality.
AND YOU ARE NOT A BIGOT.
Really, is there anything worse you could be?
So you're not that. You're not bad so you can't be that.
After all you're inclusive, support diversity, and you know every human being is equal no matter their creed, race or nationality.
You'd never be so irrational or ignorant as to make judgements about someon
