This is a good example of how I feel every morning when I open the curtains. XD
Sept. 2011, Hasbro says thanks to us for our love and support of MLP…
A few notes on the significance of this video… This was a promo that ran on the HUB just as the first drought between seasons one and two was ending, and was specifically geared to get us pumped up. Lauren wrote the lyrics, Andrea sang it, and not only did it give a targetted shout out to Bronies (legitimizing the term), but called out DJ PON-3 by name; the name WE gave her. We got Derpy in Season one (Feeling Pinky Keen), but this was the first tangible proof we had that Hasbro was scrutinizing what we were up too. I got chills watching this again…
I feel the same way. This is one of my favorite bits of the fandom history. It was a moment when I think we all felt pretty collectively good and positive- not just about the show, but about each other.
I miss that feeling.
Still, this video and song never fail to make give me the warm fuzzies!
THE DUALITY OF PONY
"What a piece of work is mare - how noble in reason. How infinite in complexity…"
Everypony is always talking about how wonderful it would be to live in Equestria. While I’m inclined to agree, I suspect my reasoning might differ from other folks. I don’t see it as a world without pain. I see it as a lesson in how joy can triumph over pain.
Take Pinkie Pie. The bounciest pony in the bunch - the one most dedicated to spreading joy to her fellow pony. Laughter is more than just her Element - it’s her lifestyle, philosophy, and mission. Between Party of One, Friend in Deed, and Pinkie Pride, however, we see a certain insecurity - a desperation that suggests that Pinkie not only wants you to Smile, Smile, Smile, she needs you to in order to validate her very existence. The mere title of “Super Duper Party Pony,” for example, is Pinkie’s entire identity, (and her forfeit of it to live up to her promise to Dash is proof not only of her dependence on such labels, but of her profound dedication to the be-smile-ment of the equine race).
Now I am not trying to paint a dark tint to Pinkie Pie. While discussing the pain and insecurity beneath the surface of Pinkie might seem like a bummer, it’s actually that very lack of fluff - the defiance of children’s television stereotypes - the duality of pony that makes the show so compelling in the first place. The brilliance of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic is in it’s character development - its explorations of the contradictions within an archetype such as “the clown.” Examining Pinkie Pie’s Ponyacci-esque tendency toward sadness actually illustrates the very beauty of her soul. Every laugh - every smile - every song is a victory march, and one that has potential to inspire us all.
Joy - real joy - comes not from a life free from pain, but from our conquest of that pain. Pinkie Pie rose from a rock farm - gray and dull - and taught her entire family the joy of parties - the meaning of pink!
That’s what My Little Pony celebrates, (whether it’s Fluttershy’s moments of bravery, or Rainbow Dash’s self-actualization beyond the approval of idols such as Daring Do or the Wonderbolts, or Rarity’s rise above the trappings of her own ego) - the little victories that make life worth living.
In the show, we are treated to a series of mostly believable happy endings, not because Equestria is a utopian paradise, but rather because these six beloved characters learn how to conquer their demons. To grow as moral beings - to experience the joy of coming together in support of one another. To know the magic of friendship.
That magic is something we can learn to incorporate into our everyday lives, even if the colors we see when we look out the window don’t always seem quite as bright as they do in Equestria.
This resumes in a few words why I love the show, and why until now it has helped me to keep going.
Awesome Pirill <3
That’s actually a theory incorporated into M-theory (string theory)
Sorry, I just used the word theory three times.
Basically, there is a possibility, if string theory is correct and atoms are actually made up of tiny strings vibrating in 10 dimensions, we could have infinite parallel universes inside each and every quark contained in our body. We’re huge to them, and tiny to the universe WE are contained in.
How bout that? There could be billions upon trillions of creatures, things, worlds, inside each atom inside us. Infinite universes in one quark.
Mia your geek is showing.
This is why I study physics.
…whoah. brb, contemplating this forever.
So does that mean that when we die all those billions of universes and creatures die within us?
I knew I am a god
I fucking knew it
holy crap that is like world-ception
Dude what if stories and characters are real living in one of the many universes in the mind of the author. The author just happens to be in touch with them in someway.
This is where our characters live.
these are my legit beliefs.
D: Oh my!! I’m a living god!!!
Does this mean that I can kill creatures and destroy entire worlds that live inside me, with just a thought?
If so, those poor bastards must be having a rough time XD

A friend just sent me the images above, and I think that I have to share it with your all; especially for those who might be fighting like me with our own minds.
Talk!!, someone is always listening… I really know that it’s quite difficult to keep in the fight, but you can do it.
You never know if someone needs this. Reblog this, even if its not your ‘blog type’. Just do it.
Yes, please reblog
Do it. Now.
i sat here and thought about reblogging this or not but then i realized how many people feel suicidal, and i have too its not dan and phil but i could honestly care less, bc i rather have someone not die then make sure i strictly stay to my ‘blog type’
Blog type doesn’t matter. Caring for people does.
What is the point of a virus that just downloads APM comic strips to my Desktop?
With all due respect, after reading this, I can’t avoid to ask: are you SERIOUS??!!
Someone with a bit of knowledge about computers can tell you that 1) you don’t care to update/buy a good antivirus, or use open OS instead. 2.) you click any link from any person at any time (but this is helped by point #1) or 3) Due your past “project” came to an end, you are just trying to get more attention and interest of your followers, using fantasies, tales, dramas that belong to a cheap novel.
To be clear, I disliked Molly’s rapist nature and I agreed with some of the points that were stated (even by you) against this askblog… but this “thing” about virus pro-Molestia attacking your computer or you being a target of “hackers” is just RIDICULOUS. Move on with your life!!
