A defense for Princess CelestiaNOTE: This is not intended to attack anyone. Please refrain from flaming other people for having different opinions.A defense for Princess Celestia3 years ago in Personal More Like This
In my vision, Princess Celestia is apparently the most hated/disliked/disregarded pony character among the good guys in MLP:FIM. And she also receives a mass amount of false characterization and crude joking from the community.
I find it very difficult to search for her on YouTube, Deviantart, EQD, Google images, ponibooru, without stumbling upon several videos/deviations of Celestia being trollish, tyrannical, cruel, sexual deviant or just an all-out depraved monster. Of all the cartoon characters i've seen so far, i've never seen one being so fanonically butchered as Celestia is.
Here are some arguments that gave origin to all the "Celestia abuse"
She sent Luna to the moon
Now i think i understand why people are so strongly focused on this argument; specially because they think it was too much of a "cruel" fate

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.
Now, it's importa

CharismaI just read this and I think it is so true:Charisma2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Here are the 10 habits of remarkably charismatic people:
1. They listen way more than they talk.
Ask questions. Maintain eye contact. Smile. Frown. Nod. Respond--not so much verbally, but nonverbally.
That's all it takes to show the other person they're important.
Then when you do speak, don't offer advice unless you're asked. Listening shows you care a lot more than offering advice, because when you offer advice in most cases you make the conversation about you, not them.
Don't believe me? Who is "Here's what I would do..." about: you or the other person?
Only speak when you have something important to say--and always define important as what matters to the other person, not to you.
2. They don't practice selective hearing.
Some people--I guarantee you know people like this--are incapable of hearing anything said by the people they feel are somehow beneath them.
Sure, you speak to them, but that particular falling tree doesn't make a sound i
dogswhen i walk tasha in the morning we always run into little babies in strollers who often want to pet the doggie.dogs2 years ago in Personal More Like This
tasha is friendly and affectionate, and we always stop.
but I always tell the baby, hey, tasha is a friendly dog, and it is o.k. to pet her, but not all dogs are friendly like her, so be careful.
once we were on our walk, and a german shephard that would always bark at tasha got loose.
he came running across the street, right towards tasha, without making a sound, and we stood there, tasha's tail wagging.
the german shephard proceeded to go straight to tasha's throat and viciously attacked her. It was so sudden and shocking. I started yelling "whose dog is this, whose dog is this" and I waited a few seconds for the snarling to stop, but it escalated. The shephard moved to her hind quarters, and I instinctively realized that he was trying to cripple her and get her on the ground so he could really savage her.
so I just started hitting the shephard on the head, not hard at fir
Lullaby For A Princess ChordsLullaby For a Princess by PonyphonicLullaby For A Princess Chords2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This took me way too long, which I guess is only credit to Ponyphonics amazing work. There were chord structures I have never seen and i actually learned a lot from decoding it.
If you guys want this in a different key please ask me, this is the native key ponyphonic uses and I had to use pitch correction to put it in a key I was more familiar with (Gb?! cmon man ) I learned it in Eb but now that i have transposed it back to its original key I might just learn it the right way.
Also if I made a mistake please tell me, this song had been changed pitch, chorded, written as number progressions instead of chords, transcribed back to chords, and then re-recorded so something probably slipped along the way.
Changing the world through musicSomeone recently brought up an interesting point as they left a comment on one of my YouTube videos. They argued that my talent wasn't very rare, and that everything I've done has already sorta been done before--that I'm not really pushing any boundaries or doing anything new. Tone is often lost or misconstrued over the internet, but it seemed to me that the person leaving the comment was insinuating that I was somehow "less" of an artist, or not quite deserving of praise, simply because I wasn't pushing some sort of boundary with the music I made.Changing the world through music2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I have a pretty thick skin, but I'll admit that negative comments bother me. They bother every artist. We do what we do to make others happy, and if we fail in that endeavor, it makes us feel bad. Any artist who denies that is either lying, or not in it for the right reasons (in my opinion). That being said, the guy's comment on my YouTube video... kinda bothered me.

The north end of the beach in front of the hotel ends with an outcropping of rocks that protrude into the ocean for a hundred yards. Two hundred yards? I don't know. My senses seem to have dwindled over the years or are lost entirely at times.
We climbed up the highest rock and sat, talking about the time we braved the waves and rocks closer to the shore to get to another private beach farther north. This time there was a sign saying not to attempt such a crossing.
Looking down from our perch it occurred to me that we could just jump off the cliff into the sea and swim to the private beach. Probably would be easier.
Eleanor knew I was thinking about it. She pointed out a big rock just below the surface. Hmm. Not there. A little farther out. The cliff is a little lower. Hmm. Water looks dark and deep. Look, we could dive straight out, not down, we don't want to hit any rocks. Then we go around that bed of kelp and straight to th

Why did Celestia banish Luna to the moon?
This looks like a controversial act or feat for many people considering the fact that Princess Luna is Princess Celestia's younger sister. The first and foremost important fact to realize is that Celestia didn't just banish Luna to the moon, she banished Night Mare Moon to the moon. The opening sequence described in detail that Luna allowed jealously and anger to get the best of her and that she wanted to create an endless night so Equestria would be forced to appreciate her more. Celestia didn't outright attack her or anything like that, but tried to reason with Luna, but Luna was so far over the edge that she was transformed into a "wicked mare of darkness". Even after that, the opening explains tha
About Alicorn Twilight (and Recent comments)Well, here's the scoop-About Alicorn Twilight (and Recent comments)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Get used to it, because she's here to stay. And not just in the show.
We're introducing the updated version of season three's Twilight Sparkle into the comics as well.
We're asked about 5th person at our tables: "what do you think?" "Why did they do that?" "Are you gonna.." etc.
Since we work hand in hand with Hasbro, we never had any intention of NOT updating Twilight for the books as well.
And quite frankly... we are all about it!
Neither Katie Cook nor myself understand the hatred going on for having Twilight become a princess. Katie has made an outstanding point- Twilight may be the only popular character to have EARNED her crown... she worked for it, suffered for it, and it was awarded. She didn't marry into it, wasn't born into it (Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Jasmine, etc etc). That gives little girls a character that WORKED FOR WHAT SHE EARNED. One helluva example I think. And for Katie, with a little girl and another on the way... that's a great t

Is Friendship is Magic going through Seasonal Rot?Before you read this, you should watch my season overview of Friendship is Magic, which can be found here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h2Q0B29MKsI.Is Friendship is Magic going through Seasonal Rot?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
It's safe to say that the third season of Friendship is Magic has been... controversial. Every episode seemed to have some complaint lodged at it by the mass consensus—The Crystal Empire had a terrible villain, One Bad Apple botched up the bullying moral, Magic Duel was underwhelming, Keep Calm and Flutter On had horrible pacing, etc. There was no universally loved episode in this season, like Hurricane Fluttershy or Suited for Success, and pretty much since the season began I've been trying to find out "why." I've looked through many doors and come up with no answer that either didn't make sense, or was full of bullshit.
The most notable "excuses" of the show's decline of quality are a decline in writing and Lauren Faust's departure from t
Stop the Bats!Game demo video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zxYJ3fmdlPoStop the Bats!10 months ago in Personal More Like This
'Stop the Bats!' is a game about stopping bats.
It's based on the MLP (copyright Hasbro) episode 'Bats!', and features fast-paced gameplay with all your favorite characters like Applejack and Flutterbat.
The player starts with 10 trees and 50 apples. Vampire fruit bats will appear in waves from both sides of the map and attempt to eat the apples.
Bats drop coins ('bits') when defeated. Use them to buy upgrades in the shop (or not), which can be opened/closed by pressing 'E' while standing on the barn door.
Flutterbat also appears to harass the player by swooping down and stunning them for several seconds. If you kick her enough times, she will run away.
Winning the game requires that you defeat all the bats with at least one living apple remaining. This always takes about 20 minutes.
You lose if all of your apples are eaten, an unfortunate phenome

A letter directed at defenders of Molestia:
I don't mean to sound accusatory here; I understand that it's easy to fall into this line of thinking, of "Oh this is okay, I can laugh at this" because of how certain actions are portrayed in fiction.
I, myself, once upon a time, thought it was really funny when a girl "agressively flirted" with an unwilling boy (i.e. the Kanker Sisters of Ed, Edd, 'n' Eddy)... until I learned that females could sexually harrass males. And not only that, but many people will either ignore or laugh off real-life cases of female-on-male sexual abuse. Now I can't watch episodes of EEnE with the Kankers without feeling sick.
Yes, morally ambiguous - even downright depraved - characters can be done right. Dr. Venture and Beetlejuice are just the first exa

Copic Markers and Pony colorsI get a LOT of questions regarding what colors I use where when it comes to the ponies, and I keep saying I'm gonna make a little guide. Well, let's give it a shot.Copic Markers and Pony colors1 year ago in Personal More Like This
For the majority of my covers, I use Copic markers to color. Copics are light-fast, alcohol markers... not unlike a classic school marker, but higher quality. I prefer Copic over other brands primarily for a few reasons: Variable tips (markers, fine, brush, etc), better blending, and they can be refilled! This is the BIG selling point to me... this means you can buy the marker once, and continue to refill. It also means you can custom blend colors should you desire. Copics also guarantee that if you buy Y00 yellow, and then buy another down the line, the colors will match. I've bought the same marker color from other brands and had them not match. I will use other brands here and there for very specific colors or effects, but Copic is 99% of my marker work.
So... when I do a cover or whatever, I do basic ink lines first wit
