FUCK! NOW I HAVE TO WAIT FOR SEASON 2! WHAT DO I DO NOW?

Can anypony help me find something to pass the time? (see what I did there)

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?

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.


Everywhere I go, there's a sergeant there.

I listen to Winter Wrap Up and At the Gala during work, which is washing windows. I have also bought my Pinkie Pie toy in full confidence, taking the awkward looks with a smile when I deny that the toy was not a gift for somepony else, but in fact for me.

I liked most of the songs, besides a select few. I always really enjoyed Pinkie Pie's.
I didn't like the one you said right away, actually. Because at the time, I didn't really like Rarity. I felt sorry for her on that episode, but until I saw the episode with the dogs who kidnapped her, I didn't really like her. But the "Do you want to hear whining? Thiiis is whining" made me like her.

I never really felt the annoyance with Rarity that most people felt the first time through, that being said I was generally ambivalent to her character as a whole, but Art of Dress was the sort of song that I could identify with and enjoy. My dislike for Rarity peaked at mild contempt during the Sonic Rainboom episode where she was a total bitch, but that was the only time I had any dislike for her character.

The accented notes in Signing Telegram are really nice, along with So Many Wonders. Winter Wrap Up is probably my second favorite, just so damn catchy.

I have been waiting for Fighting is Magic, havent heard any recent news about it but hopefully it will still get itself made. The Applejack stage fight they showed of was very entertaining.

Possibly be the same, maybe a bit of an attitude change is all.

I doubt that there will be any alteration to his character because that would require aging the other ponies as well. Unless there's some magic deus ex machina involved I doubt his character will change.


Although I would like to see a Celestia-size Luna.

There may be a loss in quality depending on what program you use to convert it.

in GIMP and Photoshop I doubt you would lose much quality though

Well that was fairly simple actually O_o. Last time i tried, it said i had to install some program in order to convert it.

But here is the teenage spike drawing i was talking about.

Something like that?
