Short of it: Brony couldn’t have feels for this pic or take it in properly ‘till ‘Rainbow Dash’ was added in..
Wow, I heard about people editing ponies into fucked up real life events but I always figured it was just made up crap. This is friggin horrible..
Most of the rumors about bronies are arguably true. It’s basically gamer culture, except 50Xs worse.
Okay, I’m getting tired of all this bull, and not just that people use individual’s actions to judge others (seriously, what decade are we in, the 90’s?) Why does someone have to understand things for the same reason as everyone else does? Is this an exclusive club for “people who think the same as us?” That’s as bad as a teacher punishing a kid for solving their math problems differently than they want, even if they show their work and get the right answers.
The real world doesn’t even have that many “right answers,” except for the laws and rules that keep us from exploiting others. So when you go and tell someone that they’re wrong for understanding something, just because they got it a different way than you like, then shame on you! Who do you think you are to say you’re right so they can’t be?
Same thing goes to you guys who hate on whoever made this, regardless on whether you like it or not, someone took the time and imagination to make this. It could’ve taken a few minutes or several hours and/or days to make, and that in it’s own deserves at least some respect. Whether or not you think it’s good in quality or meaning is fair for you to decide, but don’t be that person who has to share with the world how terrible you think it is in either way.
Short of it: Somebody got the importance of a historical event thanks to someone else putting it in a new light.
Hey guys, I finally broke down and made an advice blog rather than just floating around Omegle hoping people need advice. Feel free to check it out and spread the word! http://asktheanonymousone.tumblr.com/
… But I’ve barely gone through 5 hours worth of posts…
Edit: Yeah, all of the sudden my computer froze and Tumblr black-screened on me. Good sign to start from scratch…
He who makes the time, takes the time
I just came up with a great analogy for Tumblr: Each blog is a water-filled hole, every person who follows digs a scoop of dirt out of respect for what is there, and hope for what is yet to become. Every ounce of content, every drop of effort, while each makes it’s own reverberations on the surface, melds together to become part of the whole. So one might judge it based on the individual drops on the surface, only those who dive in will see it for what it is.
I’m not that much into shipping, but seeing this felt too coincidental to just go unnoticed…
(Bonus points for acting out two sides of the same coin; both are anxious for what the future may hold, or if that day will ever even come)
Why do people follow blogs that rarely update and hardly ever communicate with their fans when there are plenty of other blogs with great mods, good art, and a good story behind it?
This, this really gets at me. I admit, I’m not really that great a mod, I haven’t done much anything yet besides make open promises, I have no real story to speak of, and next to no skill in art yet. But seriously, you’re dissing on blogs like mine and the people who follow them when you say things like that. There are tons of great blogs out there that don’t get nearly as much credit as they deserve, and I know, because I spend nearly as much time finding new blogs to follow as just surfing Tumblr in general. Whether or not they get popular, whether or not they get better and improve, they can’t force people to pay attention to them, and the same goes for everyone else.
You insult both me and my followers, in saying that just because I’m a bad mod now, my followers are wrong for following me, and that they should invest the ridiculous amounts of effort to find the diamonds in the rough. Well, I’m bound to get better one of these days, and as these “under-rated” blogs are bound to as well, I can say that eventually they’ll find the audience that works with them.
Seriously though, about 1 in 100 posts I see on my dashboard are people promoting other aspiring artists and bloggers, and of new people having huge surges in followers overnight, or in some cases, the blink of an eye. So what I’ll say to this post, follow who you want, and if you personally stop liking a blog, feel free to unfollow. And “bad” bloggers like me will just have to work that much harder to get and keep their followers.
Yeah, I guess I’ve been off sitting in the sidelines of Tumblr the last few months, sort of hoping that my asks would get me dragged into someone else’s story. I’ve realized I really need to get a story of my own before I can expect people to throw my character into theirs. I do have a whole bunch…
OOC: Okay, I finally am doing what I should have done a looong time ago, get a mod blog. Look to here for all things mod/ooc related from here on out. And yeah, I’m gonna get this blog back into shape, so pass the word along.
Okay, I’m getting back into working on my Trainmon blog, which will hopefully get this blog back in gear sooner or later. I really could use the help kick-starting it back to life, since it hinges on the tumblrverse. Also: this blog layering is complicated stuff… and why did I never get a mod blog until just now…
What’s so wrong about being a Blank Flank?
It’s a serious question, why is it the norm for us to choose our special talent, when we’re still learning about who we are and what all there is in the world? We just go about our childhood, being expected to make our decisions blindly, enough so that we often latch out at whatever random event/thing that comes along. Not that it’s all bad from that, for plenty of ponies it’s these moments in our childhoods that motivate who we are and what we do. But seriously, a single event of our childhood, a mere instant of our lives, brands us with our job, our passion, our future…
So what’s wrong with being a blank flank, somepony who hasn’t found the thing that makes them special? They still can have talents and skills, and even careers… they just haven’t fully figured what really defines who they are.
On the other side, the thing ponies seem to forget sometimes, is that a cutie mark is merely a symbol of who we are, a trademark of ourselves. It’s something worn like a tattoo or a piece of clothing, something we should be proud of showing off in public. It’s something that we own, and we determine the value of it, never the other way around.
So just remember this if you are a blank flank or just meet one, or if you ever question your own cutie marks meaning.

Random question, how do you find tumblrs when they start from scratch (Never quite figured that out yet)?
