I’ve voiced tons of stuff in the fandom yet I never get invited to cons because I don’t rap terribly or sing like an idiot.
Ok. It’s not like I’ve had years of professional experience or anything.
P.S. I’m being cranky and unreasonable because I’m drunk and had a bad week. This is just me being bitchy and yes you can yell at me. I never said this was rational.
Hey, no matter what happens, always remember: Hard, honest work ALWAYS pays off.
Also, you shouldn’t have expected the brony fandom of all places to value quality work over stupidity. Sadly it doesn’t work like that.

This is what I’ve been up to as of late. It’s all ordered chronologically, including the unfinished stuff.
A lot of people are complaining that the episode "Equestria Games" was wasted potential that was thrown away for "another stupid Spike episode". What are your thoughts on these complaints?
I’ll make sure to address that in my review.
I really hate when people hate an episode for something that isn’t in the episode itself. Like the anon said, people will hate this because “Stupid writers how dare they not do exactly what I think they should’ve done!”, but aside from that, I’ve already seen people hate this episode because it was, admittedly, overhyped, while ignoring what happened in the episode itself.
That crap just grinds my gears.
Tom, I'm a big fan of your work, but for the love of god get some BG music. All the pauses you make are really ankward because all that can be heard is dead silence, and I'm sorry to say this, but some of your segments are more boring than they deserve to be because of the lack of music. I don't care who the author is or what genre it belongs to, just put something there to set the mood.
So apparently McDonald's in some locations are going to stop labeling toys as "boy or girl toys", and it seems to have something to do with the recent MLP toys. Opinions?
I think it’s very progressive of them. By not labeling the toys as specifically for boys or girls, it allows the child to choose outside of obsolete gender constructs. It allows boys to feel more comfortable if they want a pony toy, and girls more comfortable if they want a Skylanders toy. It provides two choices without suggesting any restrictions.
It is a simple solution that doesn’t force anything specific onto the employees, or the customers, and in the process, is also being considerate of people that are trans, agender, or non-binary.
I was really confused about that… Does that happen everywhere? Like, in my country they would just ask which toy you wanted… They never refered it as the “boy car” or the “girl’s doll”… It was just ‘do you want the car or the doll?’ I always thought that it was like that everywhere. So, yesterday, when I started to see all the posts about that change, I got a little confused… But it is a good thing to do. Very happy that they are starting to change things that are really simple to do and that affects so many.
Just to clarify, apparently these things are popping up at some american McDonald’s:
As for how widespread this is, I have no clue, but hopefully it’s the start of something.
