My Niece Is AwesomeDuring the car ride to go see Rise of the Guardians...
My Brother's Girlfriend: Did you know the kids can't watch Brave? They're scared of it.
Me: Really? You're scared of the bears?
My Niece: *nods*
My Brother's Girlfriend: And yet they watch Doctor Who and that's no problem!
My Brother: Yeah, people getting vaporized? Not a problem. Bears? Oh hell no.
Me: They watch Doctor Who?
My Niece: I love Doctor Who! *imitates a Dalek* Exterminate! Exterminate!
Me: That is, bar none, the greatest thing I've ever seen.
And thus, she and I imitated Daleks the entire car ride and even when we got to the theatre. Suddenly, I know the joys of being an auntie.
Oh yeah, and Rise of the Guardians was fantastic.
Regarding Group Security and "Hackers"Hello Everypony,Regarding Group Security and "Hackers"1 year ago in Personal More Like This
This post is largely directed towards anyone who moderates or runs a MLP-related group on DeviantArt, but the information contained can be relevant to everyone.
Over the past few hours, there's been a note circulating around to various MLP groups, claiming that there is a small group of "hackers" (which is not the correct word) attacking MLP groups, taking them over, and vandalizing them. To counter this, the note is suggesting that groups should block all join requests, disable auto-accept, and then forward the note to every other group you know of.
Really, that's horrible advice, don't do that.
It is true that during the past few days, a couple of pony groups have been attacked by malicious users. However, there is no elaborate hack or security flaw that's allowing this to happen. Instead, the groups that were attacked simply had an incorrectly configured, yet easily fixable, setting in their group's permissions which allowed such attacks.
Most groups already are not

My plea to the fandom (PLEASE READ)Ok, I've been silent about this for far too long but with what I've been hearing lately, I cannot keep it quiet any longer. I have to get this off my chest. This is important for ANYONE in the My Little Pony fandom so you all had better read carefully.My plea to the fandom (PLEASE READ)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I've been hearing some rumors that some of the DHX staff have considered leaving the show because of all the hate against Equestria Girls.... There you go guys. You keep hating and we'll lose enough of the show staff that they may not be able to continue it all because you were being judgmental hypocrites.
Seriously, I lose a ton of respect for someone whenever I hear them say something negative thing about Equestria Girls. At first it was just a little bit of fandom butthurt but if it's gotten to the point where some of the DHX staff are irked by us, then action needs to be taken. And it is true, fans are complaining way too much about Equestria Girls. I've heard some people whine and literally give Hasbro and
The THOUSAND WATCHER Contest! (Deadline Sept 5th)Wheee! A thousand watchers! Thanks, you guys. Now, since I'd rather not just do a random giveaway for this momentous event, I'm going to have a contest. You'll actually have to do some work, you suckers! Bwahahahaha!The THOUSAND WATCHER Contest! (Deadline Sept 5th)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
THE PRIZE: A filly plush of your choice WITH cutie marks OR one (ONE) accessory
QUALIFIERS: You can't upgrade to a full size pony. If you wish to pay for additional accessories, they will be considered. Unless you wish to pay extra, the prize only covers decently simple fillies (what I mean is no Royal Fillies). Rainbow Dash is okay. OCs are okay. Colts are okay, too. The filly will be made with my standard 10 inch pattern in minky.
THE CATCH: You have to pay shipping. Sorry! ($15 within NA, $20 elsewhere)
THE CONTEST: You must draw an inanimate object as a pony.
Your submission has to be recognizable as a pony.

Concerning events in Boston todayJust want to say a couple things about today's explosions at the Boston Marathon.Concerning events in Boston today1 year ago in Personal Journal More Like This
My heart goes out to the victims and their families. I feel tremendous sadness and empathy for everyone affected by the explosion. For all of us watching on the internet, on television or listening to news on the radio, the situation is shocking, but to those on the ground and their loved ones, their terror and pain and loss is devastating. My heart aches for what they are going through at this very moment.
Since 9-11 we, as a culture and a country, have not done a good or decent job of continuing to support our first-responders. The further we've gotten from the events of that terrible day, the more we've downsized, defunded, and often demonized police, EMTs, and firefighters. But seeing these brave men and women rushing into the heart of an explosion to rescue victims is nothing short of inspiring and heroic. Thank goodness for their presence at the marathon toda
Some Tips For Young ArtistsSince Equestria Daily is doing their Artist Training Grounds and many young artists out there are starting to feel their oats, I thought it'd be a good time to get some of these thoughts out on the internet, for no other reason than to reference them when I'm asked about art advice later. If you're going to try a hoof at drawing, there is a wealth of information available to you out there. Instead, I'll try to make a note of some of the things that very few art tutorials seem to mention.Some Tips For Young Artists2 years ago in Personal More Like This
1) Almost anyone can draw - yes, even you. Anyone with full command of a hand or two can draw. When you start, your drawings will not be great, but they will satisfy you. Keep going. That stodgy old advice about the thousand bad drawings is true. We don't admire well-rounded artists for being prodigies; we admire the effort they've put into honing their craft. Don't expect to develop quickly; take your time and pace yourself. Anyone can draw, but only the patient and tenacious can draw really well.

But it's important. SOPA and PIPA has been put aside FOR NOW.
But there is still another bill that haven't been stopped. Even if temporarily.
And it's been extremely overlooked while all the attention has been towards SOPA and PIPA.

This journal entry is set up as a list of rules and guidelines as well as rates for my commissions. Come here first before asking me for a commission and familiarize yourself with these rules. My profile page will have a message saying if they are open or not but you can visit this entry any time to get a good idea of what I am looking for and if you have any questions, feel free to ask below. I usually open commissions with a few slots available so I don't have an influx of messages coming in and so it is easier to keep track of.
And remember, this list is subject to change over time. For example, I am not taking animations or other types of fanart besides pony and so on, but in the future, I may change those rules depending on how

We all love to imagine how cute and awesome a lot of the MLP characters would be. So much so, that many have taken on lives of their own in the community. Characters like Lyra, Bonbon, Derpy, Berry, Cheerilee, Doctor Whooves, etc... all get amazing positive attention. They get so much cute artwork, are always portrayed in wonderful ways, and are loved and even perhaps revered by the community.
But what about Celestia?
Seriously. Dead serious here. Why does she get such bad rep? Everyday, I see new photos of here being a troll, sexual deviant, tryannical ruler, or all out depraved monster. Come on, what did she ever do to deserve this?
Imprisoned Luna for a thousand years?
No, she imprisoned NIGHTMARE MOON for a thousand years. Also saved Equestria from Eternal Night, an event which, scientifically, would have wiped out all life. Want Proof? Look at Pluto.

I'm just sick of how our fanbase (Sonic fanbase) is so heavely divided. On one side, we have the Retro Fans. Who deeply hate Sonic's Modern look, games and stories. On the other are the Modern Fans, who have no idea of Sonic's origins and firsts games and because of that think that Modern is better and it has always been. On the middle we have the tiny group of the Sonic Fans. Some people call them the Real fans who are people that just don't care if Sonic's eyes are green, or if his games suck or even if he burps.
I'm just sick that people starts hating Modern (I'll refer him like that when talking about the Modern incarnation and his most recent games) because of the gameplay, or because of his new looks, or even because his new or old games!

A recent "conversation" has brought to my knowledge a group dedicated to "protecting" the character, Princess Celestia, who is from the show, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. If you know me, you know that I LOVE the character of Princess Celestia and that I've been a spazztastic little defender of hers ever since I became a fan of the show (My friends, Jandrus13 and Dusty-san know VERY well how I've been about that). I don't remember if I've ever written Journals about how I feel about her, but I know I've ranted and lectured people a bunch in the past about my feelings toward Princess Celestia and putting up logic and a good defense in her behalf for her actions in the show.
