My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic

I'm a brony.

σ_σ ... Seriously?

Somewhere beneath this dark, arrogant and crusted exterior is the fluffy soul of a cuddley-coo who likes to watch animated ponies, unicorns, and pegasi learning about love and friendship.

I even have an OC (Original Character)...

That's a cutie mark, not a butt tattoo...despite what my cousin might say.

Yes, that pony represents me... an admission that prompted my eldest brother to confiscate my man-card... but when I designed my own MLP:FIM t-shirt, it prompted Ginger to declare that I had surplus validation of my manhood. (It's hard to tell if people are being sarcastic over text...)

So here's my query: is it more important to appear manly to your brothers or the ladies?

It's a conundrum...

Here's my other query: was it a stupid decision to admit to being a brony? Will I lose followers? (If I even lose 2 followers that's over 10% of my readership! [No, my math doesn't suck that much. I have readers who only connect via facebook, so they don't "follow" on blogger.])

So how did I become a brony? How did someone as jaded and cynical as myself even begin watching a cartoon about six mares in Equestria?

I was dragged, kicking and screaming.

If you remember my post Life Updates - Who is With Whom and Who's Having Whose Baby - P.S. Mr. Weirdman, then you will remember that Queenie has been a brony (or "pegasister," for those of you who appreciate gender descrimination) for quite a while, and she threatened my life to get me to watch it with her. And, as everyone knows, receiving death threats from pony fans is mildly terrifying.

Basically, I agreed to watch it to preserve my life, and then realized it was actually a fun, funny, and "d'aaawwww" cute.

If I had had a heart it would have melted.

I was also introduced to spin-off series on YouTube (such as Friendship is Witchcraft http://www.youtube.com/user/SherclopPones?feature=CAQQwRs%3D) and THAT, my friends, you will not have a hard time believing I'm a fan of. -_-


Anywhozits, in related news, I'm going to the Pon3Con in Omaha Nebraska tomorrow. Expect a blog about that... possibly with video! (I know I promised video once before... I'm still trying to get a copy of the zombie short I was featured in to post on here... but I'm actually going to be the one filming this time. So it should be easier.)

So... look forward to that.

Or don't.


I don't care.


Go do some evil.

Hi, Ginger!


  1. I watched the show to find out what all the fuss was about.
    I'm 42, fond of Metal & films where stuff explodes and by nature a surly misanthrope...
    And I have a Pinkie Pie sat atop my bookcase grinning at me.

    1. No true man can resist the grin of Pinkie Pie.
