  1. Yes, there are two spots open, so you're in if you want to be. I'll be driving up from LA, myself. Do you have a Discord? I'd like to get everyone together so we can all keep in touch.
  2. Ok, I'll put you in for the room. Do you have a Discord? That would make it a little bit easier to stay in touch.
  3. Great! Then those dates will work for you?
  4. If anyone is looking for a hotel room for BronyCon, I'm looking for one more person for the Days Inn Baltimore Inner Harbor from Thursday 8/1 to Sunday 8/4 at $120.50 per person total.  I'm also looking for one more for a stay at the Sleep Inn Inner Harbor from Sunday 8/4 to Monday 8/5 at $39.96 per person (we wanted to extend our stay at the Days Inn, but it was totally booked).  And, if you're coming in through the airport, we also have room for two more people at the Best Western BWI Airport North Inn & Suites from Wednesday 7/31 to Thursday 8/1.  It's convenient to access from the airport via the light rail line, and convenient to get into the inner harbor via the same route.  That will be $29.60 per person if we get a third person and $22.20 per person if we get a fourth.

  5. I just booked a room at the SFO Hyatt Regency (where BABSCon 2019 is taking place), and am looking for roommates to split the cost. The room will be somewhere between the 6th and 8th floors, will have two queen-sized beds, and I've requested that the hotel not give me a room with windows facing the atrium, since according to online reviews, the light and sound flooding in from the atrium makes it difficult to get to sleep. I can only make it between Friday and Sunday, so I've selected a check-in date of Friday 4/19 and a check-out date of Sunday 4/21. I'm 31 and male, and I won't exceed a total of four people for the room; I've found that five or more can be uncomfortable. With two people (including myself), the cost will be about $152 per person, ~$101 per person for three, and about $76 per person for four. My only real stipulations are that this isn't a party room (no alcohol please) and you must be able to keep your hands to yourself (saying this due to a personal experience).
  6. I'm confused as to how a movie like this exists, but maybe I'll go out and see it??? Hopefully with a friend who really wants to see it.
  7. A few weeks ago I saw MFKZ in a movie theater. The plot had some problems, but everyone in the theater was having so much fun that I have to recommend it. It takes place in Los Angeles, and after the movie, they showed a special interview with one of the Japanese creators who admitted they had to do quite a bit of research before beginning to understand the American culture, including gang culture, which shaped the lives of the characters and setting of the film.
  8. Since I only just spotted this topic, here's one from Friday: "You have successfully deboned the cream cheese."
  9. I thoroughly enjoyed this finale, but I'm a little bit confused concerning the plot. Cozy was draining all of the magic from Equestria, but she was sending it to another dimension instead of keeping it all to herself for her use (I gathered that she didn't have a choice in the matter thanks to how the draining functioned). So, she was really only interested in becoming incredibly popular and therefore (in her mind, at least) powerful? I guess she never did see the rainbows and lasers that happens with the magic of friendship - she might have preferred that instead if she did. Also, I'd be interested in learning whether the other dimension the magic was being sent to is the Equestria Girls dimension.
  10. I only just figured out that Smolder is female.

      I watched episode 22 this morning, and I'm pretty sure it's the only episode in which she's been referred to using a pronoun.

      I would of thought you would know by her voice.

      I think her voice is ambiguous as far as whether she's male or female.  She's a young dragon, so I wouldn't expect her to have a deep voice.

  11. Spitfire's pep talk was a spoof of the classic Saturday Night Live "in a van down by the river" sketch featuring Chris Farley. I definitely recommend looking it up on YouTube. I was laughing so hard when Spitfire went off like that.
  12. I'm in Glendale, CA, on business, and I'm probably going to be here for at least a few months.  If anyone in the area is interested, I'd love to have a meetup somewhere.

  13. After attending BronyCon for my third time, and hearing the big news at the end of the closing ceremony, I decided to finally put some effort into creating an OC. I'm hoping to create one who represents myself, and go to the final BronyCon in cosplay (part of what I'm doing to help make it the best one ever), so I'm getting a jump on it right away. I've decided on a reformed changeling for a variety of reasons. For one thing, I have no idea what my cutie mark would be if I made a pony OC; while I have some accomplishments, I don't feel that I've done anything that would cause a cutie mark to appear, and don't identify with any special talent or skill in particular. So, a little bit about my OC's personality. He's introverted, and while he enjoys being social, he's often very quiet unless he's around people he knows, and needs time alone to recharge after socializing (which can be quite challenging in the hive). He often changes into different personas to avoid interaction in public spaces when he feels anxiety, which is one way he finds time to be alone. He only reveals his true form when he's around friends and family in a comfortable situation. Even though he may come off as antisocial at times, he enjoys sharing the things he loves with others, and getting free of Queen Chrysalis' reign was a great relief to him. Since becoming reformed, he has grown interested in pursuing needlework and creating clothes and plush toys to express himself. I'd like him to be more of a slice of life character than one who's involved in a larger, epic story, and I'm looking for some input from the community so that I can really create a compelling character. One of the biggest things I have to decide on right now is a name. It's tempting to call him Draxon, mostly for simplicity's sake, but also because I identify most strongly with that name, but I'm open to other suggestions. Canon changelings are named for insect parts, species of plants, or in the case of Kevin, just have regular names, so I think there's a lot of room for creativity. I'll also have to come up with a color combination for his appearance, but I think that'll mostly come down to experimentation. If you have suggestions for a name or on ways I can improve upon my character, please jump in! Thanx!
  14. Headcanon: Zecora is extremely eccentric and totally at odds with what zebras are actually like.  Which is why she's a hermit.

    Prove me wrong, show writers! (Give us some more zebras already!)

  15. 2005. We were going to have a ten year reunion, but not enough tickets were sold. To be honest, that was a relief. Most stories I hear about reunions are awful.
  16. This episode is so relatable. And the secondary characters were very enjoyable, too, especially the baker.
  17. I just dreamt that I was standing in a nest of snakes. I instinctively leapt out of bed and seem to have twisted my ankle. My dreams are the most realistic dreams.

  18. I identify as panromantic demisexual. It took 30 years for me to figure it out.
  19. These were supposed to be molasses cookies.
  20. Hmm, Major Motoko Kusanagi (Ghost in the Shell) vs. JC Denton (Deus Ex). Now THAT would be an interesting fight. I think it depends on who sees whom first. If they start talking to each other, they'd probably just have a deep, philosophical conversation and call some sort of truce.
  21. I just got a phone that's capable of running the full version of this game, so if you want to add me as a friend, my code is 09d898.
  22. Cookie Clicker gets DARK if you stick with it long enough.

      Indeed but what if the cookie gets eaten

  23. I think this thread needs to be revived. Source: http://tjpones.tumblr.com/post/143462536412
  24. I have a 24" x 40" poster of one of the covers of Game Informer from a few years ago featuring art for the reboot of Tomb Raider. I have the actual issue of the magazine, and fell in love with the cover. Then I saw that for a limited time, you could get a poster of it if you had enough points in GameStop's Powerup Rewards program. It was the only thing I ever got from that program, and I actually haven't bought anything from Gamestop in years. Here it is: And if you look closely, you can see a reflection of Trixie and Twilight Sparkle.
