Yeah... you know I came into this thread to talk about the show in a more serious discussion and it seems that it has been taken by the obsessive fans. I'm all for talking about a show, but I am not an obsessive brony, so I'm gonna leave now.

You haven't posted here for the last ten pages, it's been accepted that you've left. It's okay bro, personally I don't really like the merchandise trend that this thread has been taking either but there's always hope that we can somehow achieve some sort of legitimate discussion in this thread, thus I stay.

Really not much to talk about at the moment aside from fan content really, guess there will not be much to discuss until season 2 comes around. Still curious as to what Discord will look like...

I blame this show for my passion in baking apple pies and cupcakes. Darn you Applejack and Pinkie, my faves.

This thread is boring when there is nothing new going on.

Indeed, only interesting things going on at moment is possibly having mane6 in a couple of months maybe, awaiting season 2, and listening to round 2 of the remix wars.

I had the urge to get some banana nut muffins because of a particular pony's influence. I swear I must've been wall-eyed as I bought them. Good thing I used the self check-out :3

I should learn how to bake muffins.

Heh, I actually did buy some banana muffins recently, good stuff I think.

I should learn how to bake muffins.

Not too hard to make, first time I made them I was 14 I think, they tasted pretty good. Even better with blueberries, strawberries, or bananas in them.

I am so angry at myself, too! A little while ago I thought people who liked MLP were retarded, then I watched episodes 1 and 2 and now I like the damn show. Now, I still don't enjoy it the same way I enjoy shows like South Park, but it really was entertaining. I am still a "casual" watcher, but I really don't even know why I am that. It's a kids show, for gods sake! It's for little girls!

Where have I gone wrong?

There there. I felt the exact same way.

You have 2 options now. Fight it, or let it embrace you. For a while when i watched a few episodes, i tried to fight it.

Now i have accepted that i like it even thought i don't know why.

Pay close attention to this example fellow Newgrounders, for before us we have a broken man, a person akin to myself not so long ago. You see, by enjoying a television show that is largely intended for small children, most predominantly girls the person in question has undergone an existential crisis, becoming insecure about his masculinity.

This is normal. Most of us here (myself included) always feel a deep pang of shame when engaging in Pony related activities because that's what society dictates. It's Sociology. To avoid feeling this way I often read and participate in news events on Equestria Daily so I can enjoy what the fanbase has to offer while still maintaining some semblance of dignity, because despite being about fictional ponies, the community actually is very good at putting together well-crafted pieces of art, namely music, comics, fanfiction and the like.

Trust me, I was at that point before. It doesn't really pass, but it deceases in its severity. I fear what it does to people who fully embrace it, taking Xenomit as an example. Keep rational is my best advice.

I agree that fully embracing it would probably not be the greatest idea. I don't want to be going to brony meetups. Think about what that must be like, you're walking around town buying pony merchandise with a bunch of future serial killers and child molesters.

I'm not against them, but i would otherwise keep your pony love to a minimum if you don't want that to happen. I personally think those kind of fans are crazy but i don't stop them from buying the toys and such (even if it is weird).

Infact, this will be scary to you guys, but yesterday i biked down to the bank to withdraw some money and on my way back, i stopped at rite aid to get a snack. On my way to the drinks, i found myself stopping at the toy area and i found myself gazing at a fluttershy toy (O_O).

I didn't buy it but i didn't feel all that disgusted at it anymore. I hope i don't turn into one of THOSE fans D:

Frankly, meet ups have the potential to be alright (like NG meetups for example), but I'd still probably never go to one, due to the aforementioned reason.

Anyway, I want to ask you all a small question. What is your favourite song on the show? I think my favourite, even though it is short, is the one on episode 3 where Pinkie Pie pulls twilight out of her house and sings a song about her to try to get a ticket. I think it's really catchy.

I've always found the musical element of the show slightly off-kilter, but I still enjoyed them, well at least for the most part. My person favorite would have to be the Art of the Dress, reminds me of the Song Put it Together. But if you were to incorporate the superpony beats made by the fans... Well let's just say they're all excellent and I'd have a difficult time picking a favorite.

Agh! What am I saying? Dear God, what's wrong with me?

In time it will pass. It's what happens when someone actually puts effort into a children's show.

My favorite's gotta be Winter Wrap-Up since it's so catchy and upbeat! Plus I love winter, even though they're trying to move into spring during that whole episode :P And somewhere on the list there's Pinkie's Singing Telegram, oh goodness the lulz.
