I was browsing through my video project resource files to see how much I can delete to save harddisk space. When I came upon After Effects project files, I thought about how well it manages to rediscover all connected files even after a renaming extravaganza and how impressed I was by that.
But I wanted to see in more detail how file names and paths were saved in those files. So I opened one project file from one of my Twilight Sparkle videos in a hex editor, and this is what I saw:
Youtube is a constant source of anger for me.
This forum, too. Right now because I can't make the same Youtube link multiple times (it will embed multiple times though!) and the first link got converted to embed despite me not embedding it, but linking it, and the poem I made recently took me half an hour to format properly, but never mind. I will be crippling the Youtube links in this text, because the forums won't do what I tell it to do.

My Little Pony: Friendship is M
A few days ago I've read a quote by Meghan McCarthy, one of the writers for MLPFiM. I can't find it right now, but it went like:
Good ideas are common. People who put those good ideas into action are rare, though.
This left me with mixed feelings. I was wondering what line of thought was behind that quote. Because it can be used merely as a belief, thus acting as if it were true and thus more or less unconsciously perpetuating this idea.
Since she is saying that as a writer, she is speakin
I made a new video based on an animated GIF:
(Please share the video if you like it.)
The AniGIF is on a Russian website:
I went to that page and noticed animated ponies in the upper right corner.
I reloaded the page and learned that they are randomly chosen.
Then I accessed the page using Google Translate and all ponies were now changelings!

I was just clicking through someone's deviantART gallery. I came to this picture...
...and for some reason had a naughty thought about Pinkie Pie wanting Fluttershy to be a tree.
Then I clicked to the next picture...
I watched The Last Unicorn again. (First time was as a child.)
Here some comments:
1) The unicorn has a star on her head, around her horn, that looks quite a lot like the main star in Twilie's cutie mark.
2) In dubbing, they used the sound of a flying pigeon for a raven, a falcon ... and AN OWL!!! Owls are known for their silent flying, and there they apply the sound of probably the loudest flyer of all to it.
3) A Prince slays not just a dragon in a typical western style context
What is this ace
filled with so many wonders?
Casting his spell
That you are now under
Squirrels in the tease
and the cute little punnies
Birds flipping free
and Dowlphin pees honey
Oooh, I'm a magical ace
and I owe it all to Pinkie Pie's ways
If I knew that sound had so much up its sleeve
I'd have composed sooner, and never grieve
Yes, I move everyooooone!
Reporter: "Discord, what is your favorite recurring event or celebration? Are there concerts or festivals or sports events that you like to attend regularly?"
Discord: "Oh, I LOVE Domino Day! ... I always try to arrive early."
Reporter: "Really? Why is that?"
Discord: "Well, before it gets crowded, it's easier to find a good spot. ... If you know what I mean."
The Mane 6 with Derpy are about to go on a road trip. Stuff is packed, the car is ready.
Twilie: Let's go then!
Derpy: I'm driving!
Derpy: WAAAAH! Okayokay, you drive!
If anypony would like to make a comic out of this, feel free to do so. Just show me the result.
A while ago I added a lot of favorites from the MLP Vector gallery at deviantART, one character at a time.
Just now I browsed through my favorites - endless Fluttershy pictures - when I saw this:
I just love it!
Witnessing excellence causes amazement and joy. But this would not be if it weren't for mediocrity ( and outright failure, haha ) to provide the necessary contrast.
So these things are a necessity in order to make excellence and success have a massive impact.
And I thought, these things being a necessity, it would be best to create them through the least motivating means.
What I'm trying to say is: If your or someone else's creative output isn't consistently excellent, rejoice! It means
Imagine it is night. You are sleeping in your bed.
Suddenly, you are woken up by a loud noise.
You see a bright energy swirl in the room, a kind of portal.
How would you react if this really happened? Very likely you'll totally freak out, jump up, cower in a corner, leap out of the room, arm yourself or some other kneejerk self-defense reaction.
But now imagine out of that otherworldly thing Pinkie Pie poked her head and said: "NO TIME TO EXPLAIN! YOU HAVE TO COME WITH ME NOW!"
In a way, reflecting on the dreams I recently had led me to a realization. Not something new, but more like a confirmation, a reminder, and also something that the show conveys. I keep pointing out the richness of guiding wisdom in MLP, and in a minute I will give another example.
When I was still playing World of Warcraft, there were people who were willing to help me, to lend a hand with things I couldn't do alone. People who I considered game buddies.
One day, they, plus some other playe
Today I'd like to try and inspire you a bit. It might be somewhat lenghty, but I will come to the point. If many people read this, it would make me very happy.
Feel the Magic!
We see what we want to see. We see what we are looking for.
Curiosity enables us to see more and more.
I realized that MLPFiM is very much like what spiritual masters tend to say about sacred texts: It is all in there. It is a complete guide. You just have to see.
I encourage all bronies to take the show
I've been very active on my brand new Cheezburger account (mylittlebrony.com) lately and they have a feature to create a "site" in addition to the regular account profile. Based on recommendations in the help section, I sent a support ticket:

Might change later depending on how things go, but right now I'm quite content with it.
The glasses were not done with perfection in mind. I just went with the flow and wanted to get it done. I'm still learning this stuff and didn't have that much patience.
The base pony was made with the Pony Creator. The cutie mark was manually added by me. (The dolphin is a heavily modified clipart.) It represents the high frequency transmission of Dolphin characteristics like playfulness, sensitivity and z
I'm a little kooky. But at least I'm not Spock. That would be spooky.
Take a dolphin. Now add a "w" (U-U) and - naturally - you have an owl there, too.
If you like owling, don't be stingy with the bees, then you can do bowling. It's just like owling, but more fun.(If you try to throwl an owl, it will make you run!)
This is how Pinkie Pie will drive you crazy:
Pinkie Pie is awesome and fun, so you can't stop thinking of her.
When you think of her, you can't stop smiling.
One cannot fall asleep while still smiling.
If you can't sleep, you will eventually go crazy.
That's why crazy people tend to smile and laugh so much.
...While you can!
Here is something I wanted to share with you.
Pinkie Pie is very dear to me. In a way she is representing a part of me that needs more expression. I embrace her spirit and welcome her nature into my being.
Lately I have made many animated GIFs and some caption pictures from the show. Half of the time I didn't look for specific scenes, but did other stuff and noticed them in the process.
That one time the idea came to be to make an aniGIF out of Pinkie Pie's final twitch
