I want to sincerely thank everypony for being SO VERY VERY VERY nice to me over the past few weeks! A ton of you been so kind as to add me on Twitter and follow my pointless, short-form ramblings. So far I have resisted the urge to tweet about the color and composition of my dinner menu or create/sustain any drama about Justin Bieber or supposedly killer, doomsday satellites. So thanks for putting your Twitter faith in little old me!
In addition, you folks have been far too sweet in favoriting and commenting on my last two comics as well as the random little Flutterjerk/Lying Jack one-offs I've been making! In particular when I put up the All Politics Are Loco comic,
I was expecting a whole lot of angry ponies and less than a hundred favorites. Instead, the feedback has been largely positive and the comic is sitting at a sweet 584 favorites! I'm shocked and amazed and oh-so happy! Thank you guys and gals and bronies of all stripes! Thank you thank you thank you!
I am sad that I couldn't make it to broNYcon on Saturday! From what I've seen on the Twitters, everyone had an amazing time! I'm a bit disheartened at some of the questions posed to Jayson Thiessen. Cupcakes? Really? I would really like to see the amazingly talented and wonderful folks who work on the show keep up a dialog and relationship with the fans. I don't want them to look at interviews and convention appearances as an exercise in frustration.
With the convention over, I can finally post the giant-sized poster
asked me to make! I think it was actually auctioned off, so with respect to someone possibly paying actual monies for it, I will release a very low res version of the original 2 foot x 3 foot monster. I'll post that sometime Monday!
This weekend in My Little Pony was, as expected, completely UNexpected! There was so much glorious minutia to obsess over, I don't honestly know where to start! My favorite part was Twilight describing her tiara as "Big crown thingie," which is how I describe virtually everything.
Barista- Hi, welcome to Starbucks! What can I get for you?
Me- Big Crown Thingie.
Barista- I'm sorry
But there was SO MUCH new stuff! I had planned to make some other episode-related comic this weekend, but the creative centers my brain essentially shut down with so many options. Tom the Rock? Rainbow Spike? Flutterjerk's inappropriate touching of Rarity's rock? That weird-freaking screwball pony? Big Mac acting like a dog? Stuff overload! Though, I was a bit disappointed with the resolution of Discord's story. Trapped back in stone by the element lasers was a slight letdown, but after that FREAKING STAR WARS SHOT BY SHOT REMAKE! Suddenly, all is forgiven!
Also, a particularly amusing (and a bit chaotic) episode of Doctor Who this weekend! Craig Owens and Matt Smith have such brilliant chemistry, and the addition of STORMAGEDDON, DARK LORD OF ALL made everything that much better! The ending felt a bit tacked on, a rushed game of catch-up finally bridging the events of Let's Kill Hitler to next week's Wedding of River Song. Still, rushed or not, the sequence had me chomping at the bit for next week! Can't wait! Too many days!
Today should be mostly relaxing. I'm going to make bread and chicken soup, try to answer the majority of comments and notes in my mailbox, and work on another little one-off pony drawing I've had running through my head this weekend. I'm also going back to create my definitive Dragon Age 2 play-through now that all the horrendous bugs seem to be fixed (hooray! Leliana finally remembers that she loves my Warden!)
Oh! And I also bought a new arcade cabinet this weekend! It's a crappy old golf game that I plan to strip down and turn into a Centipede-inspired MAME cabinet with my Arcade X trackball controller. I've already got a fancy PacMan-styled MAME machine, but switching out between the trackball and standard joystick controls is lame with a capital LAME!
And that's all for now! You are all the awesome and I can't thank you enough for all the wonderful correspondence and conversation I've shared lately! Please keep coming back, because interacting with everyone is the highlight of my day, every day!
PS- HOLY CATS! I would be remiss if I neglected to request, nay INSIST that you take your sexy selves over and favorite the crap out of
stunning animation project Pinkie Pie in "Present Prank."
Stunning, brilliant, awe-inspiring, none of these words really do justice to his incredible work! I cannot possibly praise him enough, so help a sister out!
PPS- I almost forgot? How could I forget? BAD ME! The wonderful drew a picture of your humble narrator pony!
As usual pixelkitties pony is contemplating life, the universe, and everything through beer-colored cat's eye glasses! Thank you, lovely lady!
