There’s Something About Fuego…
2UMBLR 2WO YEAR 2PECIAL 2/7: Grimdark Big Macintosh
It’s hard not to be influenced in some way by GDBM’s humour, and you can quite clearly see the descent of my blog into playful absurdity in a matter of posts after starting. GDBM helped teach me how to be absolutely ridiculous, but also to wear it with a straight face - don’t overdo the joke. The best part is that to talk to Zed is to step into a world of this kind of humour (one of the chats we’re in is called “Santa Claus for Alarm” right now and the picture is rotating between various pictures of Santas in unusual situations).
((I HAVE HORRIBLE SANTA IMAGES FOR YEEEEARS!
Oh gosh man I`m touched by seeing this I really am! I didn`t know I had such an impact on you either haha, but I could say a lot of the almost same things about you! Heck the way you animate, how much you`ve improved in your art it`s all so inspiring! To hear your work took bits of my work and how I`ve had my work to work on a vice versa plane it just`s just Cherry! Hehe I can`t really express it all, but that Carlton dancing gif did pretty well at summing it up))
HITCHHIKER’S GUIDE TO THE TUMBLRPONE
Welcome to the world of Tumblrpon, the home of the many drawblogs (drawn response blogs) you may have seen on EQD! At this panel, we will discuss topics such as how to create a successful drawblog, how to ask good questions to help drawblogs thrive, and introduce you to this often-bizarre subset of the Brony fandom.
Hosted By: Fisherpon, CrusaderVX, Raikissu, and AutonomousZed
Here’s a video of most of the panel that I did with friends at Bronycan! The initial concept was pretty much a carbon copy of TJ’s at Bronycon, but we reworked it from the ground up to give it our own special flare. I was kinda worried that we wouldn’t get much of an audience, since Bronycan is kind of a small convention, but I was happily surprised to find that we got a pretty decent turnout!
Look at the pics below and see if you can find yourself~
Unfortunately, the Celestia Radio crew that was recording us had an equipment failure. :(
Thankfully, I had set up my own camera as backup. :)
Unfortunately, that camera randomly turned itself off halfway through, meaning that I don’t have the entire thing. :C
It made it all the way through us talking about Tumblr itself and the types of blogs, but failed partway through us talking about social interaction. That means that we don’t have any footage of us taking questions. Kinda sad.
Since at Bronycon, we didn’t end up making a presentation, I wanted to make sure that we had one for this one. I’m really pleased with the final product in that regard. You can see the individual slides of the presentation at the end of the video (set to music!), but in case you’re too lazy to watch the whole vid here they are:
[several slides that were basically the front page of AskMLCblobs, AskLittleRicePaddy, Ask-King-Sombra, AskPirateDash, Ask-KnightTrixie, Ask-Grimdark-BigMac, AskTerry, Jumped-Out-PinkieAnswers, and AskSpirit]
I included an absolute tonof drawblogs in the slides, so I’m not going to put a full list right here. Instead, I’m going to link a pastebin. Disclaimer: Relative position/size in the slides mean nothing except that’s where the picture fit well. Presence in the slides means nothing either except that that blog came to mind when I was brainstorming. Sorry if I forgot yours.
Thanks to everyone who came, and I hope to see you again next year!
((OH goodness it’s finally here!
Check it out you guys! Fisher, Crusader, Me and some other blog got together and talked about tumblr pon. Check us out before we cut out! And make funny remarks at how I say ,”Like” “Um”, and studder live!
PS you can’t see it but I put like six tick marks on my shirt, but I didn’t make them bold enough so no one noticed.
PPS I also just woke up not too long before this
PPPS I almost referred to the down with molestia thing while it was still a hot issue since I was silly and though it was funny. WHOOPS!))
Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Tumblrpone. 12:30-1:30. Winter Room.
Me, Rai, Grimdark Big Mac and Lulamoon Daily’ll be talking about Tumblrpon, and much fun’ll be had by all involved.
If you’re torn between my panel and the big VA panel, just know that EFN will be recording the big VA panel. You’ll be able to see it on Youtube later if you come to my panel.
