After taking a MONTH to actually beat the Lightning DLC for XIII-2, I finally have her. And now I'm just messing around on the game. Thinking about going and playing a visual novel now, dunno which one though. :/a

The shear idea of Final Fantasy DLC makes me uneasy.

Unless it's for VIII, than it can be a "make the game not shitty anymore" DLC.

I saw a bit of it on TV. It makes me feel quite unpatriotic that I can't really find it within myself to give a shit about it. I mean, the Queen is cool, I guess, I'm just not that bothered by the whole thing.

I have just been absent in the purely antisocial sense. I spent most of the weekend waving my arms around in front of the TV because I bought a Playstation Move controller. It's pretty fun, but there's hardly any games that utilize it. The main reason I haven't been online is the fact that I generally only do my internet exploration (coscom included) while at work. Because of the Jubilee, we have just had a FOUR DAY WEEKEND!!!

It was pretty swell.

Also, I feel like now is a good time to state that I have spent much of the last four days watching My Little Pony, as I hadn't watched any of the new show before then and I figured I should at least know what all the fuss is about.

DO YOU DESIRE MY OPINION? DO YOU?!?!

I fucking love the show. A whole bunch.

What's weird is this: I hated the whole 'brony' thing before I ever watched the show... Now I hate it even fucking more. I mean seriously, how fucking over compensatory and simultaneously juvenile can you get? I never really understood it before, but here is my theory:

Whether or not people like to admit it, it is a show for little girls. Even though the majority of it is excellently written, humorous and beautifully animated, it's still My Little fucking Pony. Personally, I have no self esteem and already enjoy childrens entertainment, so I can freely admit to watching a show like this and feel little to no embarrassment. But still, every episode, when the opening credits start and I hear 'My Liiiittle Pooooonyyyyyy, My Liiiitle Ponyyyyy' I can't help but smile and my brain subconsciously says, "haha, seriously? No way. No fucking way, son."

I reckon that most of the older (primarily male) fan base also feel this and so they need to come up with a kind of 'club' to feel part of, so they can all justify each others childishly maladjusted television tastes, instead of just saying, 'I watch a little girls TV show. A little girls TV show that just so happens to KICK ASS'.

And unfortunately, as with all cliquey groups, it quickly turns elitist. Check out this gem of a comment I'v copied from a MLP youtube video (it is a response to someone claiming that they are a -ugh- 'brony'):

Quote:
You're not a brony. You're more of a brony wannabe. Do you even know what brohoof means?
There just isn't a facepalm big enough.

But I'd rather not concentrate on the douchebags who spoil the show, let's focus on the show itself, because it is fucking GREAT. I'm about halfway through season 1 (just watched the episode where Rarity makes them all dresses and for some reason they are a bunch of dicks about it.) and I am thoroughly enjoying it.

Early on, I wasn't completely convinced, but then I heard this beast:

"She's an evil enchantreeeeess, and she does evil danceeeeees, and if you look deep in her eyes then she will put you in tranceeeees!"

Now there's no turning back.


ETA: Long MLP post is long. Unintentionally so, to be perfectly honest.

.......

I have a friend, he is a viking. He celebrates the Norse pantheon as his religion, looks like what Thor from the Avengers wants to be everyday. He drinks, he LARPS, he is the rock of the world.

He is a brony, and I think I shat myself when he did a girlish squee...

As we were leaving though I saw someone's freaking hand reaching out of the doorway...the door was definitely closed before (I took photos in front of it so I would have noticed if it wasn't) but it wasn't closed when we left. It was really eerie paired with the broken, boarded up windows and such. I thought perhaps it was a security guard of some sort, but whoever was in there never approached us, and this was smack in the middle of a Tuesday afternoon, which I doubt would be prime time for vandals. Very, very odd.

I take pleasure in knowing someone somewhere is actually offended/upset with that claim.

I think you've struck the nail on the flat end there.

I need to stop watching Torchwood before bed.

My wigs AND my ladybugs should be here today!
And I get to bake all day!

I want to bake something (I've had the brilliant/insane idea of chocolate curd), but first I need to finish writing out a covering letter, amend my CV and pray to the employment god (I call them Workatron).

That is my favorite episode. As a seamstress and commissioner I totally related. I've been catching up on season 2 and am a little disappointed. Too much Rainbow Dash and Cutie Mark Crusader bullshit, not enough Twilight Sparkle and not nearly enough Rarity.
