Pretty damned solid Will!
You're makin it hard for me to find stuff to call.
I suppose this is technically the last episode for you this season. Wish we could celebrate somehow. It's been a solid, solid season for music score. You and your team are definitely killin it, and i'm sure the Bronies will feel it too. They're gonna have youtube videos where they extract the dialogue and SFX and just listen to the score!
Thanks for an awesome third season!
We were actually taking about this particularly in reference to the score for (omitted). We all agreed that you really took the scores for season 3 to a new level... so thanks for all your work this season!

seagullsI was sitting on the beach with Eleanor and we were staring at two seagulls a few feet away from us. They were staring at us, hoping for some of the potato chips we were eating.seagulls in Personal More Like This
"Stupid scavengers," Eleanor said.
I watched the birds, saying nothing for a minute. But then I said:
"They're noble birds of the sea, not stupid scavengers. Look at how beautifully they are colored, the same as the sand and the clouds in the sky. And look at how their beaks are made to stick deep into the sand to burrow for crabs. And look how elegantly they hold their position against the wind, and how they can fly for great distances across the open sea."
We stared at the birds.
"They are beautiful, dad."
"I know, Eleanor. It's a little sad."
"Well, Eleanor, it is because of humans that they are distracted from their noble, original purpose. And what of our original purpose? Are we so much different? Look at us, chasing after cars, money, power, fashion, position. How much different ar

so many amazingly talented people and the everfree people were so accommodating and everything was so much fun and everyone said so many nice things to me and when I got on the stage to introduce a band I got as far as "hi I'm will anderson" before the applause was so deafening you would have thought the beatles were on stage. It was so humbling.
I don't even know where to begin so I won't.
Back to work.

On fandom, fans, and trollsI just flew in from Seattle, and I had a great time. In many ways it was one of the best cons I've been to. For my own part, everyone I met and encountered, from staff to attendees to VAs to friends old and new, were positive and the people incredibly kind and brilliant. I was witness to countless incidents of generosity and honesty and solidarity. Rarely have I smiled so hard or as often in the company of so many good people and admirable fans.On fandom, fans, and trolls in Personal More Like This
But, sadly, it seems not every experience this past weekend was so positive.
Before My Little Pony I had no real experience with the concept of fandom beyond what I read with horror, and, admittedly a certain amount of amusement on internet websites and forums. But here I am, happily lost in a sea of technicolor unicorns and pegusi. I can't say I've been part of the MLP fandom since it began, I was actually somewhat late to the world of ponies. But I have seen it grow from a relatively sma

I am really sorry to have had any part in yet another steaming bag of fan drama being dumped on our collective Canterlot doorstep.
Thanks everyone for being so kind and supportive and for tolerating my ridiculously long post. I'm in awe, actual, slack-jawed, glazed expression awe over the outpouring of support and good mojo from folks.
I shouldn't need to say this, but please DO NOT resort to death threats or ANY kind of harm directed at the MLPArtConfessions blog. As sentient adult human creatures we are more than capable of disagreeing with words that don't invoke violence. Seriously, don't. DO NOT. DONUT. We are better than this. I don't care if it is "just the internet" everyone needs to get over the knee-jerk reaction to start slinging threats and violence around as if it means nothing. My friends are not sadists or bullies.
For the past two days I've been weeding death, rape and all sorts of violent imagery out of my
The End of Pony?The End of Pony? in Personal Journal More Like This
My friend Lauren over at the Daily Dot recently posted a rather interesting article considering the various signs of a dwindling fandom, and whether the G4-based My Little Pony community is burning out at the same breakneck pace of which it initially flared to life.
On one hand, the article is a more than a little tongue-in-cheek and clearly meant to ruffle the horsefeathers of a community that has proven exceptionally good at being ruffled over the past several months. Controversy, reactionary rants and drama wars forged in the fire of hurt feelings, damaged reputations, and public vitriol have been the norm lately. Far more of the negative than the unofficial (though overused to the point of cliché) motto of “love and tolerance.”

MY HEAD ESPLODE!So today when I logged onto Deviant Art and looked through the updated journals, to what did my wandering eyes should appear, but a CERTAIN journal by a CERTAIN Ms. Lauren Faust featuring the logo for the Bronies documentary designed by a CERTAIN goofball hipster weirdo named ME!MY HEAD ESPLODE! in Personal Journal More Like This
What has at least two thumbs and can die happy? ME! You'll just have to take my word for the number of thumbs.
HOLY CATS! I know, it seems kind of insignificant, and it might be, but for boring old me in my little fangirl existence, this is just all kinds of awesome! When I started making art about Friendship is Magic I hope to maybe someday get something posted to Equestria Daily or maybe see a dozen favorites on one of my comics. Getting to do the amazing things I've done, getting an offhand shout-out from Ms. Faust, getting to know so many amazing friends, it's alm
As season two draws to a close...As season two draws to a close... in Personal More Like This
Hi everyone and everypony! I’m finding it difficult to believe that in less than a week we’ll be waist deep in the Friendship is Magic season finale. It seems like just the other day we were fangasming over the season premier. Now, here we are, 24 episodes down and but a pair remain. This season has been amazing. So much more than any of us really expected. The return of Luna, tons of Derpy, Lyra and Bon Bon hanging out, an unexpected Trixie shout-out, Dragons, more griffins, Time Travel, masked crusaders, self-help minotaurs, and plenty of incontrovertible proof that all the ponies in this town really ARE are crazy.
It’s been a brilliant season and a wonderful experience. We’re awash in conventions and gatherings; we have show-accurate toys and favorite background characters to look forward to. Derpy’s name was spoken and she was given voice.
