  1. All right so recently, a thread was posted for the things you hate that everyone seems to love. Well now lets go the other way around with the things you love that everyone seems to hate. Total Drama: It's more of a guilty pleasure for me. If you ignore all the puke and fart jokes, it can lampoon reality shows pretty clever and have funny parodies. Chowder: It came out at the wrong time so everyone seemed to hated it because it's not as good as the classics. It's got really good 4th wall humor. Wii/Wii U: I'm more casual so I'm gonna prefer more casual games. Plus I don't have a lot of money so the other consoles are gonna be expensive. So post away!
  2. I know generation 3 is not the most amazing generation, but it seems so many people hate it I like the art I think its really pretty and I don't see why a show has to have violence or combat to be considered good I must admit I do find the songs to be catchy now I'm not forcing anybody to like generation 3, but a lot of people consider it ugly and horrible which I feel they are over exaggerating now I'm not starting an argument or anything everybody has a right to their own opinion or things that they like I just thought I would start this topic and see what everybody thinks me personally I like generation 3 and a lot of ponies in generation 4 are from that generation so without generation 3 and older there would not be a generation 4 so do you like generation 3 or hate it and why?
  3. Pretty self explanatory Here are mine: Titanic The most glorified fanfiction of all time! Avatar Never understood what people see in that movie The Empire Strikes Back I always though it was kinda boring.
  4. So, I'm gonna be starting my first job soon as a cashier at a grocery store called Meijer (most of you prob haven't heard of it, it's not in every state just in a few) and I've been wondering...... What was your first job, what did it pay (if you don't mind me asking, feel free not to answer), did you love it, like it, hate it? Was it fun? Was it a good company? Did it suck? How long were you there? Are you still there (some people have the same job for years)? What was your start and end positions? Like I said, I'll be a cashier, not sure how it'll be but I'm thinking it'll be enjoyable (it'll help that I'm an extrovert!) I'm pretty excited about it, the company seems great, I love the store, the employees who I've spoken to have talked highly about it, pay raise is good and it's actually more of a higher end grocery store. (I'm guessing you ponies are picturing it to be a small town, family owned grocery store which it's def not). Also, I start a little higher than minimum wage which is great!
  5. I hate when I say something simple people start a fight over it! I hate when people say the mane six are adults or over 18 even though I am pretty sure if they were they wouldn't still be in high school also because I don't want them to be adults and everyone has to deal with that! I hate when I ask a question the next person yells at me and ask me are you crazy what planet are you from? Even though what I ask wasn't offenses AT ALL! Just say what you hate
  6. For example: Almost everyone loves to drive a car. Well, I hate driving. Why? Because I MUST pay atention to everything that is arround me and if I ignore it, I could hurt someone. There is always this a****ole crossing the street whenever he wants, there is always a driver that drives so baddly and if it is not a person is an animal crossing the street. Is way to stressful for me....
  7. What things really annoy or get on your nerves, I have quite a long list: -Trying to write with a pen that is running out my ink -When everthing takes ages to load on a page but the adds don't need any loading -When you can't find a comfortable position to sit in -Trying to type something and you continously hit the wrong keys -Some peoples lack of logic -Religious extremism -Wishing you could go back in time and solve something.
  8. You might remember in an earlier blog I made that I listed my top 10 favorite Pokemon. Well, now it's time to flip the switch with my top 10 least favorite Pokemon. Before we start, keep in mind that this isn't a list of the top 10 weakest Pokemon. You can find lists like that on bulbapedia or maybe Smogon. These are just my top 10 personal least favorite. 10. Purugly I had a bit a trouble making up this list since there aren't that many Pokemon I don't like. Some Pokemon like this one that are lower on the list I don't hate them, I am just not to fond of them. Purugly always weirded me out. I would get sick of seeing these things since Team Galactic always carried them in Diamond, Pearl and Platinum. I also found it strange that one of the things known about it is the fact that it's ugly, especially after evolving from Glameow, who is a rather beautiful Pokemon. Sorry Purugly. 9. Lickylicky I was never really a fan of Licktung in general. It always felt like one of the filler Pokemon since it was always just there and never evolved. Plus, tongues? Really? And people say they newer designs of Pokemon aren't as creative. This thing however is worse due to the fact it managed to get an evolution. This Pokemon just looks all derpy looking. It's design looks odd to me. So this is what happens when you give a tongue Pokemon an evolution. Honestly, if this thing didn't exist then Licktung would be taking this spot. 8. Luvdisc Why does this thing exist? What is its purpose in the series? I mean it doesn't evolve, has terrible stats, and is a water type that looks like a heart for some reason. Don't ask me how those two are related. Yeah this isn't the only Pokemon who's design isn't related to its type on this list. 7. Eggecute/Eggegutor Yeah here it is. Let me get the question out of the way first. How are eggs psychic? I find it slightly worse than Luvdisc since this thing has something else that doesn't make since. How do eggs evolve into a palm tree? I've heard some Pokedex entries say they are actually seeds which would make more since, but they keep that very inconsistent. 6. All those freaking Pikachu clones (Pichu, Plusle, Minun, Pacharisu, Emolga, Dedene) We get it Game Freak, Pikachu is basically the most well known Pokemon so much that you don't even have to know anything about Pokemon and still know who Pikachu is, but really? Do we need a new Pikachu clone every generation? Pichu kind of got away with it in gen 2 since it evolves into Pikachu. But the others? I find Pacharisu adorable but still a Pikachu clone. Plusle and Minun feel like they were only implemented in the games to show off double battles. Emolga and Dedene? Well same issue as Pacharisu. I kind of wish they'd stop introducing a new electric rodent every generation just to ride off of Pikachu's popularity. 5. Patrat Not much to say. You take a Bidoof with Ratatta clone stats and give it creepy eyes that looking totally jarring. 4. Farfetch'd This is another one that falls into the "Why does this exist?" category. I mean we already had much better normal/flying types in gen 1, did this thing really need to exist? The anime made these things out to be really rare and powerful Pokemon. Well, they're only right about one of those things. They're rare cause the only place to get them is an in-game trade for a Spearow. You know, a normal/flying type that is far superior to this thing. Also, I never really liked the look on its face. It always looked like a troll who was constantly teasing me. 3. Delibird Remember when I said that Farfetch'd has a troll look to it? Well, this thing has a derpy look to it. Not to mention, that it's completely useless with its only move having a 20% chance of healing the opponent. We get it you Santa bird, you give out presents, but not to the enemy. Not to mention that there was one that at one point followed Team Rocket in the anime and it was extra annoying. 2. Unown This is the Pokemon I've always had a problem with. It's gimicky in a way where they make you wanna catch all 28 forms of this thing. It's misleading in a way that the 3rd movie made them out to be these powerful beings, when in the games they're freaking useless. And they for some reason take up their entire own ruins for some odd reason. Yeah, turn them to alphabet soup. 1. Spinda There's so many things I don't like about this thing. They have possibly an even dumber gimmick than Unown by having millions of different combinations that the spots could be on their body. Why should I care? They have quite possible the derpiest design ever. In fact, they always looked so miserable to me with the fact that they're eyes are dizzy eyes. And they're totally useless with no evolution and crummy stats. But seriously give this these things a barf bag? Thanks for reading. If I put a Pokemon you like on this list, try not to be offended.
  9. Ok i was going to post this on the Unpopular opinions thread but i think this needs its own thread because i want people to see this and give some feedback as to why this is so common. My Input: SO many people...and i mean SOOOO many people dislike and or hate "rap" music, which in all honesty i don't get, BUT to each his own ya know? but the part that bothers me is when people say it isn't real music, or it takes no skill, that's bologna. Rap music indeed requires skill and just as much skill as any other form of vocal.....talent...usage..thingy, i would know, i write the stuff, and not the lame BS 1 word per 10 seconds kinda rap, when trying write rap with even a modest level of speed, having the words sound good, rhyme without sounding generic, sound catchy, deep at times, unusual etc etc, is not a walk in the park by any means. And not to flip the script on other forms and styles of music, but i don't see how any song writing for any other style, (Rock, ballads, R&b, Blues, even screamo) are any more skillful, they do take a different level of vocal skill to Sound good(sometimes), but not everyone sounds good rapping either, and alot of the skill in rap is like i said, writing it, writing songs is of course also a huge skill thing as well, but there is no discernible difference in skill needed when you compare writing both song songs and rap. I really don't see why people say it doesn't require skill, the beats for rap can SOMETIMES be Basic poop, and ALOT of rappers are also Poop, But the thing is, most people dislike -->Hip-hop<--, not rap, -->hip-hop<-- has changed and its subject has become dull, Repetitive and i will say to some degree skill-less. Shee rap itself is the entire style of how you put words together and say them. Not a subject or theme, its a very broad word and encompasses ALOT. Example: You may say you dislike haiku's or limericks, but you wouldn't say you dislike Poetry in general, because that is way to broad a thing to dislike. and there is always SOME piece of poetry someone likes. Another thing is i have heard rap IN non-rap songs, eg. a rock song or so with a small snippet of rap in it, yep people who supposedly dislike rap like those songs....da fuu?. SO peeps who read this, if yall really just don't like words said in a rhythmic fashion....then do what yall do, but yea that what be in my head, so please.....discuss.
  10. Are there any animated characters you cant stand? It can be for their actions, or how much they annoy the heck out of you,and also tell why.
  11. They look like this, Tastes like coriander with a minty-aftertaste to me. So I love them. Plus, they're beneficial for repressing down anxiety and depression which is a plus in my book. I've heard it also tastes like black licorice though I can't confirm that since I haven't tried licorice in general. What about you all?
  12. Something like "Something You Love That Starts With a Certain Letter", but it's something you hate instead... Lemme start: N
  13. I'd almost forgotten how it feels to hate an episode of My Little Pony this much. How long has it been? Since "What About Discord?" I mean, "Fluttershy Leans In" was awful, but at least it didn't sink to this level of annoyance and odiousness. "Hard to Say Anything" has almost nothing to redeem it. Most of its jokes fall flat, its plot is tired and lazy, the characters are borderline reprehensible, and the moral is pedestrian at best. Every season has its stinkers, but I was really hoping we'd moved past My Little Pony stooping this low, and having this in an already dire season is really starting to test my patience with this show. When the Cutie Mark Crusaders notice Big Mac making a surprising amount of long-distance deliveries to Starlight's old village, they hide in his cart to spy on him. Once there, they discover that he has a crush on Sugar Belle, and immediately work with him to win her affection. In the process, he's interrupted by a smug pretty boy named Feather Bangs, and so he and the CMC decide to compete with Feather Bangs to get Sugar Belle's attention, much to her dismay. Right from the cold open, we're "treated" to the Cutie Mark Crusaders being more obnoxious than they've been since "Twilight Time," chatting happily about invading Big Mac's privacy rather than asking him why he's going all the way to Starlight's village so much because... they think it'll be fun. That's the level of character likability the entire episode operates on, apparently assuming that the CMC pushing Big Mac to harass Sugar Belle in increasingly obnoxious ways is the height of comedy. At one point, he leans in to kiss her while she's sleeping, because the Crusaders are inspired by a Sleeping Beauty fairy tale. Sexual harassment? HILARIOUS! I hate this episode. Also, yes, the Crusaders are getting Big Mac to act out grand gestures from fairy tales, because they're idiots, and he's an idiot too. The Crusaders being detestable is one thing, but Big Mac is an adult and should know enough to question them. That he goes along with these twerps' ideas simply because they've riled him up enough speaks to a lack of maturity and self-control. He doesn't question kissing Sugar Belle while she's sleeping? The Crusaders take all the blame at the end, but Big Mac should have known to question some of these genuinely creepy acts. At the end, Sugar Belle tells Mac and Feather Bangs to leave her alone, but the climax has him completely disregard that and sneak into her house to rebuild her counter. This is only sweet in comparison to what he was doing previously, and if Sugar Belle had again kicked him out she'd be entirely in the right. But this is the emotional climax, so of course she immediately thanks him and starts nuzzling him, because that's how you should reward someone who does the exact opposite of what you asked him to do. I hate this episode. At first, Feather Bangs is one of the episode's few successful gags, as his smug, smarmy attitude hits the same sweet spot that Zephyr Breeze did, but there's nothing to him aside from getting in Mac's way and repeating cheezy one-liners. It gets repetitive long before he begins singing lame pastiches of pop songs from over five years ago, and between those songs and his overall appearance, he resembles nothing so much as Justin Bieber circa 2010, a reference made especailly dated due to Bieber looking nothing like that anymore and no longer making music which sounds anything like that. He's still the best character in the thing, but that only speaks to how wretched everyone else is. For all the elaborate exposition in the cold open, Sugar Belle doesn't do much in the episode aside from react to others, and her reactions are either swooning, surprise, or irritation. The episode's few charms come from the first, as early on her and Mac have a little chemistry, but the latter two are the ones which are most sympathetic because they reflected my own feelings of repulsion at Mac's behaviour. The episode makes no effort to develop her, and when she and Mac finally get together, it's hardly satisfying because her turn around to liking him again feels sudden, we don't know enough about her to care, and Mac's affection for her was only just introduced to us. The animators go nuts, because apparently nobody bothers to reign them in anymore, and add pink hearts to Mac's eyes just in case the dialogue, which outright states that Mac has a crush on Sugar Belle, was too subtle. Whole scenes, like one interminable song competition between Mac and Feather Bangs, appear to exist entirely so the animators and composers can mess around, but the songs are far too cheesy, the scene goes on for way too long, and the story is weak enough that the songs are hurt by their context. At its core, this is just another story about some dude consulting people near him to get the girl, and while his creepiness doesn't actually cause the girl to like him (at least at first), that doesn't make it any less tiresome. The only thing embellishing this story is that the original plans don't work, but those plans are so stupid that the story doesn't work as a subversion of traditional romantic comedies, and the scenes where Big Mac acts obnoxious or creepy towards Sugar Belle are still played for laughs as if they're not utterly insufferable. The moral might be the best part of the episode, but it too is pedestrian, and it's hurt by the fact that the Crusaders' schemes are inspired by fairy tales. I suppose that the episode isn't wrong to say that wooing someone should actually involve doing something which would make them happy, but it's worded that you shouldn't "try to impress them," and... wouldn't doing something which matters to them still impress them? What if a grand romantic gesture is exactly what they want? In context, the moral doesn't mean anything beyond "don't be obnoxious," and that's not good enough. I hate this episode. The worst part is that while "Hard to Say Anything" is easily the season's least pleasant episode, it's hardly the only subpar entry this season. In what is rapidly shaping up to be the worst season for the show yet, it's impressive that this episode still stands out as being so vile, and between its obnoxious characters, poorly-delivered moral, generic plot and general lack of humour, this might just be one of the worst episodes of the entire show. At least S4's "Simple Ways" ends on a high note; this ends just as terribly as it began, and I cannot stand it. After this, tomorrow's Rarity and Applejack episode might not seem so bad, and I cannot think of anything more damning. The recurring theme of failing to communicate isn't even present here. For fuck's sake. Score: Entertainment: 1/10 Characters: 3/10 Themes: 4/10 Story: 2/10 Overall: 25/100 If you like seeing me this angry, then some of my season 5 reviews at my offsite blog might be to your taste.
  14. What are some words/phrases in vogue that you love or hate? For me... Love: - "hella"; I don't know, just has an adorable kind of feel to it, and it helps rid of redundancy with the words "very" and "really". - "facepalm"; because I do that quite a lot. - "ship"; because shipping your favorite characters can be quite fun and fulfilling. Hate: - "literally"; specifically when people say it but they're talking metaphorically... How could you have "literally exploded" if you're standing here in front of me telling me this and you're in one piece? - "YOLO"; just... stop. No. Besides, do you mean "YOLO" as in be careful and don't kill yourself? Or do you mean "YOLO" as in live life to its fullest and do reckless, possibly stupid, activities? Sorry, I fail to understand. - "faze"... but you mean "phase", right, as in a noun? Plus it's a bit uncreative and vague; instead of saying "it's just a phase" can you be more specific please?
  15. I figured we might take a break from waiting a month for a dead meme to pop up, and instead talk about something that has been seriously bugging me as a "brony", not specifically about these forums but a large quantity I'm going to be honest, although I love the general community of this fandom, such as Mike and WoodenToaster, I often feel as if, as time has gone on, respect and general acceptance among people here is based on an elitist criteria, specifically with the arts. Dumbed down, what I'm trying to say is that I see very few people being praised or noticed for work other than visual fanart or music (although music is certainly put off a bit), and I seem to be noticing a small amount of favoritism with involvement amongst the community, based on one's skill in these fields. Granted though, these are just my personal opinions, and could just be the delusions of an outcast. Alongside this, I am constantly bothered with the PC culture amongst the fandom in general (alot of it's here, but...let's not blame anyone inparticular). Everyone is either too child-like and unwilling to speak in a slightly mature basis, stubbornly following self-set guidelines (To be honest, there are actually admins here that do this) , before you get your keyboards crusty though, let me explain what I mean by this. I am not referring to banning someone for inappropriate behaviour, I respect that there is a certain level that things need to be at, but the actual definition of what is acceptable and where is often vague, and in some cases, in threads that are completely fine with an arrangement, admins will swoop in and remove those people's post, not just one, all of them within that thread. It seems odd to me that this would be done, instead of say, just putting a certain rating on something in order to avoid certain people seeing certain things. Then again, this server belongs to you blokes, and if I want a "perfect" forum, I should probably just go and run one myself, because we all know how easy it is to run a forum. Regardless, to break the mood, have a picture of a hot Australian bloke at the beach.
  16. All right. So I see there is an Overrated/Underrated Pokemon thread. So now the question is, what are some of your least favorite Pokemon? Unown: This Pokemon is not only pointless, but useless. The anime and games consider this thing practically legendary. No they're not, all they do is play up a gimmick in their own ruins. They're terrible in the games with only knowing hidden power which isn't even that good of a move. Delibird: This thing not only has a stupid design, but is also laughably bad. It's exclusive attack has a chance of healing the opponent. There was one in the anime that kept appearing that was really annoying. Exeggcute: How are eggs considered grass and psychic exactly? This think looks stupid. It's got its brain showing for pete sake.
  17. Ok so I have a serious problem. I just submitted a fanfic I worked really hard on, and within the first TWENTY MINUTES of submission a whole bunch of people were punching the dislike button and tossing it into their "Bad fanfics" and "Edgy" and "Disgusting" folders. Yet I put absolutely no NSFW content within the story and I wrote it well like I did with my other fanfics. Yes, 6 dislikes in under an hour...WTF?? :-o Is this normal? Has the fandom suddenly turned on me because I wrote a fanfic about a skateboard-loving teen ending up in Equestria? Are we bronies becoming just as judgemental as our haters? Please help me out guys I honestly don't know what to do anymore and my confidence and motivation to continue this fanfic is slipping away like sand through my fingers. Here it is if you wanna read it: [link]
  18. Why do people hate cowards?I didnt choose and i dont want to be scared of everything,when im scared i usually get: ''Dont be such a coward,really . or ''You dont have to be scared of every single thing!'' That makes me feel bad about myself ,i dont show it to the whole world(complaining,whining,doubting,slowing and other stuff) so it cant annoy others,but other people notice it and get bullied a lot of it. i get panic attacks inside and i have a lot of intense fear,thats the worst part.Why do people hate cowards?
  19. I saw a tread about settings in media you can't stand so I decided to make one of clichés I media you can't stand. The ones that you that or are sick and tired of that to always see. Friends don't believe main character when something ad normal happens: looking at you canterlot wedding Nerd tries to impress girl: it's usually mean spirited and frustrating So discuss away! Nerd getting bullied: still mean spirited. Don't even get me started on the brain dead character cliché
  20. So I wanted to talk about 'Newbie Dash', my personal favourite episode of the sixth season so far. Despite this episode showcasing a significant moment in the show's history, (Rainbow Dash finally becoming a Wonderbolt), it has been obvious that since its air, it's received some harsh critique from what seems to be the majority of people. From what I've seen, people have generally referred to it as "cringe-worthy", badly written, placing Rainbow Dash in an already over-used plotline in which she tries to make the best of a situation in the wrong way; and probably the most common comment I've seen is the fact it seems to be glorifying/justifying the idea of bullying and name-calling. All this criticism is quite hard for me to take in, for I personally loved the episode. I thought it was the most enjoyable plotline thus far, mixing in the right amount of emotional moments with humorous moments, and being written in such a way that left me satisfied by the end, and thoroughly relating to the situation Rainbow Dash found herself in. So I've been thinking: am I weird for liking this episode so much? The one that so many people have such a strong hatred towards? If so many people dislike it, surely that must mean I've judged it wrongly and it's indeed awful. But I've decided I stand by my opinion that 'Newbie Dash' was a brilliant episode, and I've thought of a way to tell you all why. And also, perhaps, a way to explain why people hate it for the wrong reasons. So generally, it seems that the main critique of this episode is that the writers are trying to suggest that bullying and name-calling is glorified in an inappropriate way, which sends a bad moral towards viewers. We see Rainbow finally achieve her dream, but unsurprisingly find that her first day is not as amazing as expected. Specifically, what we find is that Rainbow not only makes a disastrous first impression, but her idols respond by labelling her with the nickname 'Rainbow Crash', the same name that was given to her by bullies during her foalhood. So of course, we feel for Rainbow Dash in this situation: the Wonderbolts are once again showing they can have a nasty streak about their nature, which can make us question her loyalty towards them. Because of her desperation to make a better impression, Rainbow Dash tries to find a way of standing out, first by impersonating her friends, and then by attempting a daring move at her first Wonderbolt performance. As we once again expect, this goes horribly wrong and she's forced to explain her actions. At this point, which is where most people find fault with the episode, Rainbow Dash finds her hurtful nickname is in fact a shared jab among all the Wonderbolts, reflecting on the fact they've all messed up badly in their early days on the team. Now, people severely criticized this plot point for understandable reasons. Is this a way of justifying bullying? After all, it was clear Rainbow Dash was uncomfortable with the nickname, and we hated the Wonderbolts for it, and the fact they didn't get their comeuppance was probably unsatisfying for a lot of people. Were the writers implying that teasing and mocking is okay because it's all in good fun? I can definitely understand why people would think that. For a time, I began to think like that too. But it's been some time since the episode aired and I've been debating this idea in my head. Now I believe that people might have the wrong idea about what the moral was trying to say. I think the message was less about the actual name-calling, but more about Rainbow Dash's first impression and how that made her feel. We saw her excited to join the Wonderbolts, her first day then going badly, and her nickname is used as a constant reminder of that. Because of this, she doesn't feel she truly belongs, and has to find a way to prove that she has talent, hence her ridiculous efforts to get noticed all the way through the episode. But then we find out at the end that ALL the Wonderbolts made bad impressions on their first day, which is why they were all labelled with nicknames. So, to argue against the general conception about the moral, the message seems to be saying, quite simply, that everyone has a bad first day. No-one is alone in feeling that, even the most talented people in the world who have already reached the peaks of their careers. We see that put into practice in 'Newbie Dash'. The ending is not justifying name-calling, but instead provides a way of reassuring Rainbow Dash that she is not alone in messing up her first day. ALL her idols have done it, including Spitfire, whom she arguably looks up to the most. We didn't even hear the nickname she had, so assume it must have been bad, but it puts Rainbow Dash in a better position because the Wonderbolt she looks up to the most has had her own share of bad days, and that puts her idols in a totally different perspective. Specifically, a much more positive one. No one is perfect after all. This is something I've been thinking about for a while and felt the need to get it out in the open. As stated before, I think 'Newbie Dash' is a brilliant episode, regardless of other's opinions, and truly believe this is the way people should interpret the moral. If you put that with the well-written humour and uplifting moments as we see our little Rainbow Dash finally achieving her dream, you've got an episode to remember. Go, 'Newbie Dash'.

  22. I've wondering for a long time; Is it the overall opinion that Rainbow Dash is the worst pony? Ultimately it doesn't matter, as everyone is entitled to his or her own opinion, but I was just wondering. Here are some things that give me the impression that she is hated; 1. Whenever another pony's flaws a shown, the fandom understands them, when Dashie's flaws are shown the fandom hates on her, and deems episodes like that as bad episodes (Rarity also suffers from this, but not as much) 2. She is often called a tomboy, which isn't a very flattering term, and she is not one at all. 3. Whenever she's shipped with another female pony, she is singled out like she is the only one who this happens to. 4. My favorite episode ("The Cutie Mark Chronicles") is often used as fuel to hate her (this annoys me, obviously). 5. Fanfictions that star, or mostly feature her, such as "Cupcakes" or "My Little Dashie" seem to be universally hated (I adore MLD, Cupcakes I can take or leave)
  23. Ok. I know why she is 2nd most loved, but 2nd most hated? Idk why. I think its because people think she is a weird and a wuss. But they would wuss out if they had to face their fears too. And overrated is just someone's opinion, I want to know why is she the 2nd most hated character at the same time. Ya, I am weird. But everyone is weird.
  24. So by no means am I new to the fandom. Regardless, I have little pony stuff. I have a Fluttershy poster from a con, Luna sticker, Celestia sticker, a shirt, and SINGLE booster from the ccg. 2 of the 5 are from friends. Only reason I own things I bought is because my mom thought I was joking. So anyway I can't buy pony stuff because my sister told my mom every brony is a clopper/pedophile. My mom is known to beleive everything she hears and/or sees. So my mom gets REEEEEEALLY mad when I try to buy pony merch. CCG, tees, vinyls, you name it. TL;DR: Mom hates bronies. WANT MERCH! HELP!
  25. I had this question for some time now. There seem to be a fair amount of people that dislike music that The Living Tombstone makes. I was wondering why this is. Personally, I really enjoy his music, so I don't really know why people think he makes bad music
