My God, it's full of ponies...

I'm still not sure how this happened, but while visiting chefmongoose the other weekend, he somehow talked film2edit into making some artwork of me as a Brony:

...and another version with a shaved mane (since I shave my head IRL):

What what!

Did I mention that I'm not really a fan of the show? (Though some of the fan-made videos are pretty funny!)

While visiting, we also spent a Saturday afternoon at the USS Nautilis Subarmine Museum. I got some nice pictures:

A friend and I had a pony badge made for a mutual friend who hates the ponies, as a joke.

It was so cute and adorable that the "victim" actually liked the badge, had it inked and laminated, and wore it at the last con.

When pony fans say "We will love and tolerate the shit out of you!" to the haters, we mean it.

I don't consider myself a hater. I just don't feel particularly strongly for the show one way or the other.

The funny thing is, apparently a number of us started off likewise, i.e. "Eh, this is okay, but I don't see what the fuss is all about."

And then something happens around the 5th or 10th episode and next thing you know, at the next convention you attend the ponies come up ALL THE TIME to wild audience acclaim. :) I can't complain about that! I found it very... salutary to become involved with something so charming and earnest and un-snarky. It's a bit like the early days of TLK-L, in a way, except in a considerably bigger scope. Ponies are EVERYWHERE, and life is good.

Note to self: watch no more than 4 episodes of My Little Pony.

With me, after a two youtube song-clips and an episode.. I was hooked and curious. :)

Eh. :) Me, it's the Pony Anthology that got me intrigued. It wasn't a very far step -- a roughly Winter Wrap Up-sized one -- from intrigued to hooked.

That came out pretty neat!
