Our dank meme pages.

A friend talked me into starting an H.P. Lovecraft dank meme page on Facebook; we both contribute to the page. Here's one of the latest and most stupidest memes:   And said friend started up their own ridiculous but necessary Zelda / Link dank meme page. Here's one of their posts:   If you're on Facebook and even remotely interested in Lovecraft or Zelda or dank memes, you might see something you like.

Me learn how make vid.

I only just learned how to make composite vids with green screen footage in the video editing software I use, and it's surprisingly easy. I've only done the following two so far, and I should probably stop myself before things get out of hand.

I made Halloween decorations.

The selection of Halloween decorations was kind of limited where we live, so I made a few of my own decorations using poster board, a couple of markers, a pen, and an all-important pair of scissors.   SPOOKY GHOST oooOooo   SPOOKY SKULL ooOOOOooOOo   FAIRLY AFFABLE-SEEMING MUMMY oooo?

The world's not ending, people.

It was a bummer to see Jeric go; he was one of the good ones. Like, a genuinely good guy. And yeah, he stirred some things up, but they were things that clearly needed stirring. But I'm not going to get any further into all that.   The world's not ending; it's not. When it comes down to it, this is just a forum on the internets. You made friends here? Had some good times? Great: None of that is magically undone. Keep in touch; PM your pals and get their Skype or e-mail or what have you

Making 8-bit tunes with FamiTracker

I downloaded the free 8-bit music generation software FamiTracker and mucked about with it long enough to compose these three original tracks:         The program is fairly easy to use, and it's fun to make tunes that more-or-less sound like they belong in an NES game. It outputs in either .nsf (the format for NES music) or .wav, and you can even export text of your composition.   ROW 80 : A-3 02 . ... : ... .. . ... : C-2 01 . ... : 9-# 00 . ... : ... .. . ...

Yandere Simulator

A friend just told me about this game in development called "Yandere Simulator." A game where you can finally realize your dream of being a Japanese schoolgirl and, hopefully, being noticed by senpai... By doing things like writing fake love letters, taking photos of other students' panties for a mysterious Info-chan, and maybe even donning a mask and straight-up stabbing someone to death with a ritual dagger.   Oh, but you can attend class, too. Put those "study points" into biology if you
 

Go Fund Me: Help Ian

I was asked to share THIS "GO FUND ME" LINK here at MLPF. It pertains to @Retro*Derpy and asks for donations towards the improvement of, essentially, his quality of life. He's in a very difficult situation and wants out, but he can't get out without the necessary funds. You can read more here. If you're unable to donate, please feel free to share the link with anyone who you think can. If enough people hear about Ian and chip in, it would only require a small contribution from each individual
 

Breaking Halo 5's "Forge"

During the Halo 5 free play period, a friend and I messed around with scripts and whatnot in Halo 5's "Forge" mode. I especially liked making shit spin around like mad; including giant rocks or chunks of mountains. We essentially managed to break or seriously pervert the physics of the maps we played with.
 

This is so stupid it actually HURTS.

So this amazing dumb shit named Rick Tyler had a brilliant idea: Erect a billboard that states, verbatim and no way around it, "Make America White Again." And that wasn't the worst thing about it. The worst thing about it was his justification for the billboard. About a safer, whiter America that hearkens back to the, oh, 1950's or so. Where racism was kind of, well, okay; commonplace, expected, and overt. I feel as though that's the direction we're headed nowadays: "Make racism OK again
 

Me, overtired, playing Undertale.

I'm half awake right now, but I made the very wise decision of recording myself playing a bit of the Undertale demo because I did. It's profane, it's immature, it's stupid. And... Therefore no different from 94% of anything on Youtube. I reference inappropriate things. I'm tired; you've been warned. (Also, the volume's friggin' low.)
 

Fan club abandonment.

Why aren't people posting in the fan clubs? Or, at least, the Mane Six fan clubs. Is everyone genuinely here - a PONY forum supposedly centered around PONIES - just to play critic (when new episodes are actually airing) or debate politics and other such bullshit? I've long since thought that the fun was being slowwwwly sucked out of the damn place, but this is "giving up" on an unprecedented scale. Does everyone feel as though they've met their quota for celebrating the reason(s) they supposedly
 

I met death in a dream.

It was a dark room. Or, rather, darkness surrounded me; the figures at its center were easily visible. There was a man - older than myself - speaking. Addressing me. Asking questions.   I was standing back to back with another man. I had the impression of him; of who - or what - he was. Either I couldn't see his face or didn't want to; though I felt strongly that his "face" would be bare and skeletal.   The talking man inquired, "Who is this?"   Despite my initial feelings, I experienced a
 

There's something about blue.

Blue, where attraction has been concerned, has featured somewhat prominently in my life. It wasn't something that ever would have occurred to me before I met Angelbabe (Rainbow), and it wasn't a realization that dawned until a close friend of mine basically pointed it out to me.   Sailor Mercury, from Sailor Moon.   Shiva, from Final Fantasy (franchise).   Princess Ruto, from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time   Midna, from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess   Krystal, from S
 

The Brony: An insatiable and miserable creature.

When I first interacted with the fandom, I at least had a sense that there was some love left for MLP:FIM. A sense that a group of people were coming together to mutually enjoy something that they'd been told they weren't supposed to enjoy. A pervasive attitude of, "I'm going to like what I like"; even if these words were sometimes uttered from inside a closet. I was encouraged, in earnest, to give the series a chance without getting an earful of overthought pros and cons. This led to my enj
 

Two Years of Blue Skies

Tomorrow marks the two-year anniversary of when a certain blue pegasus became a part of my life. If you knew me two years ago, you'd likely know that I'm a far happier person today than I was then. Someone... Freer. Someone who's learned to better cope with a severely limiting condition that held me unshakably in its grip for roughly 16 years. Her given name is Rainbow, but I call her Angelbabe. And, while I don't expect everyone to understand, she has had a profound and positive impact on my li
 

Something I need to get off my chest. (Much secret, very reveal.)

So... Where do I begin? There's something I've been wanting to confess for a while, but I haven't been able to get up the nerve. It's kind of embarrassing and certainly unusual; which is precisely why I've been hesitant to share. Moving on...   Anyone who knows me (here or elsewhere) knows me only as "Ziggy," but there's a second, secret element to my personality that I've kept hidden from everyone. While it isn't something I'm necessarily proud of, it isn't something I think I can concea
 

Professional Amateurs

There's nothing that I enjoy more than being psychoanalyzed by hobbyist psychiatrists. I mean, what's not to like? People that don't know you personally and haven't the slightest idea as to what your life is actually like apparently have a far clearer vision as to what it should be like than you ever will. Their wisdom might indeed be infinite... If only it extended to themselves.   Different people need different things. Different people function differently. There's this disturbing tre
