This is a story about a mare named Twilight.Twilight studied for the princess in a big castle, where she was student number 427.Student number 427's studies were simple:She sat at a desk in library 427, and read books on the shelves.Orders came to her through a dragon by her desk, telling her what books to read, how long to study them, and in what order.This is what student 427 did, every day, of every month, of every year.And although others might have considered it solely reading, Twilight relished every moment that the orders came in, as though she had been born exactly for this job.And Twilight...was happy.And then one day, something very peculiar happened.Something that would forever change Twilight...Something that she would never quite forget...
The CatToday, my cat "Blacky" passed away.This cat was no ordinary cat, and he was certainly more than just a pet.Blacky was a black cat. He was born in 1991, and died today; Thursday, August 7th, 2014. Twenty-three human years of age.Being born two years before I was, he was a part of my life since my very first day. He's literally been with me for my entire life.We grew up together. We played and fought, as though we were brothers. You know what? We WERE brothers. I knew that cat better than anybody else, and that cat knew me just as well.He loved to play, and he loved to hunt. He was a very active cat, spending much of his time outdoors. On the other hand, he spent almost as much time chilling out and being lazy. That cat sure knew how to relax!We spent a lot of time together, and we loved eachother dearly.But alas, the time would eventually come when we would have to say goodbye to eachother...This morning, I took a stroll down the street, to a local coffee shop. I was there fo

O-O (Updated with a picture)Story time!Alllllllrighty everyone! Time for a story! But first a story to preface the story.Many moons ago, whilst browsing the blog section of a website I was a journalist for, I had stumbled upon an entree from a internet acquaintance regarding his copy of Halo 4, and how Amazon (or competing company--I don't remember who he had bought it through) had yet to deliver it to him. One or two weeks after the initial launch of the game, he was understandably quite frustrated with the company. Where was his copy? Why hadn't they delivered it yet? Why was Master Chief left to float around the galaxy in the butt piece of Forward Unto Dawn? These answers and more were left dangling in a passing breeze due to the lack of coordination of one company. Being a Halo connoisseur myself, I understood his pain. I am a pretty big fan of the series (I somehow even managed to get an unprovoked happy birthday from Halo's multiplayer announcer o
Fear of Blank Canvas.I've been painting since I was quite young.But still, I am overwhelmed and intimidated once I am facing the vast 'whiteness' of a blank canvas.Like Goliath to little David, the empty space challenges me and I recoil.I think being a good painter is nothing other than to overcome this fear of blank canvas.Just like Van Gogh said,a good painter never fears the canvas;The canvas fears him.
THANK YOU!!!The Season 1 finale of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic has finally aired.I want to extend my heartfelt thanks and appreciation to the absolutely amazing, incredible, astounding crew of MLP:FiM for all their hard work and dedication. Im so grateful to have such a talented group of artists give their all for what could have easily been seen from day one as silly, girly fluff unworthy of their time. Together I think we helped prove that for girls does not have to automatically equal lame.And a gigantic thank you to the fans of the show!!! The kids, the parents and all you bronies!! The array of people this show has touched has completely exceeded my wildest expectations! I cannot believe the response, and, as Im sure youve noticed, I cannot keep up with the messages!!! Thank you all for your words of praise, thanks, curiosity, and even your thoughtful criticisms. Fr
One Year of PonyBest year of my life.First of all, thank you so much everyone for the birthday wishes! It means a whole lot to me. I've been meaning to write this for a few days, but I had a lot more to say too.A little over one year ago, out of a mixture of boredom and curiousity, I watched a few episodes of this colorful pony show. Shortly afterwards I did something very out-of-character and something that was very rare in my life until that point - I picked up a pencil and tried to draw. And then I shared these scribbles on Ponychan, and at some time, someone said something along the lines of, "Good work, keep it up!", which I'd never even dreamt of hearing before. And so after searching for years, I finally found a reason to draw. And everyday I still look forward to seeing these wonderful people that I met way back then.Hundreds of paintings later (and thousands of ponies ), I look back on this year and see all the wonderful friends I've made here and have yet to make, people who I truly ca

My thoughts on the premier.Spoilers ahoy! Sooo... I absolutely LOVELOVELOVED the premier! Discord was wonderful. John de Lancie is so hilariously charming, I'm glad they're bringing his character back as the lovable trickster archetype. Basically, he's Q again and I am loving it. Twilight with her wobbly wings? Adorable. It's good to see that miss smarty-smart hooves has trouble learning something new, but luckily she has Rainbow Dash as her flying coach. She'll be zipping around in no time. I like that she is having to adjust to her new role as Princess--she's nervous, but ready. While she may be an alicorn and a princess now, she still feels like the Twilight she always was. When her friends, with the best intentions, treat her differently? She feels awkward.Twilight's transformation added something new to the dynamic of their friendship--at first they all seem a bit confused a
Robocop 2.0The Robocop reboot was one of the few acts of lazy plagiarism that I wasn’t really bothered by, and was in fact looking forward to.“WHAAAT?!” I hear some cry. “You can’t mess with a classic!”To them I ask: Have you watched the original recently?Unlike, say, Ghostbusters (1984), the original Robocop has not aged well, mostly because it was a satire and satirical comedy/comedy based on popular culture tends to date very quickly.Also, because of the limitations of special effects at the time: Peter Weller now looks decidedly goofy clomping around “future” Detroit in that clunky costume. I’ve no idea how restrictive it was, but I’ve a sneaking suspicion that he took the Anthony Daniels approach to playing a robot and made a point of moving like the Tin Man in a monsoon.The reboot has ditched the satirical slant of the original and become a character-based drama. Those hoping for a repeat of the ‘87
