Ask The Darkest Apple Core
are you still gonna work on grimdark big mac

autonomous-zed:

Yes! But I’m waiting on a new tablet currently. The one I have is too impercise and the quality of the blog would dip if I was to use it. I wouldn’t want that. Soon though! Soon an update and a conclusion. 

((Just keepin’ y’all up why things have been slow. I apologize for taking so long!))

erthilo:

It’s a certain Zebra/Robot/Zedbra's birthday! (Hint: It’s Zed from Ask Grimdark Big Mac).

Well, at least it was when I started this. I’ve loved his blogs since they started, and I think he deserves some mention. Happy Birthday man!

((Oh gosh thank you for this! And the apple! Which has gone MYSTERIOUSLY MISSING??!?!
Gosh guys you should really check out Erthilo’s stuff! He’s a dear friend of mine and has all the hip art that I do so love!

When you go to a chainsaw con with a man it sticks with you!))

WHAT’S THE THIS THING This Friday, I’m going to be doing a 24 hour charity stream in aid of Dublin Simon Community, a charity for the homeless near where I live. You can read about them on their website here! I’ll be setting up the stream and sound-checking from 11:40pm GMT on Thursday December 19th (my birthday!) and I’ll start the games from Midnight (7pm EST, 4pm PST).
Why them in particular? In October, Dublin Simon’s van was stolen. The van contained collection buckets, hi-vis jackets, signs and other branded stuff, and neither the van nor the stuff has been recovered. Seriously, who steals from a charity?
What’s going to be in this stream? I’m going to start off by playing through Sonic Adventure 2 (hence the City Escape splash image), then Sonic Generations (if I can get it working). After that, if there’s still time, I’m going to be taking votes for the game I play! Options include Bastion, Dust: An Elysian Tail, Jet Set Radio, League of Legends, N, Portal 1 & 2 (this should be fun near the end), Red Faction Armageddon (if you really want me to suffer - I also have all the other RF games), The Stanley Parable, Super Meat Boy, Surgeon Simulator 2013 (another sleep-deprived amusement generator), and WH40k Space Marine. Obviously I won’t get through all of them, but we’ll see which ones I can tackle in the time we have! Also an option is a short drawstream! Quality not guaranteed during sleep-deprived stages.
I’m also going to be on microphone through the whole thing and in a Skype call with some people for a substantial part of it! I’d list who there’s probably going to be there, but it’s going to be so unpredictable who’s going to be there when that I’ve just included some of them in the picture above and left it at that.
Where can I donate! I have a GoFundMe page for this through which I’ll be accepting donations! The page is currently live if you want to give donations ahead of time. My target is very experimental because I have no point of reference, but please give as much as you can spare! Van theft is really annoying.
What if I can’t donate? Reblog!

Reminder that this is tonight! I’ll be doing some more bandwidth and stream tests beforehand so if you show up early you’ll get um… that.

CHECK IT OUT Y’ALL! SAVE THE VAN!
I’ll try to show up, to help the cause and ask questions most relevant.
For example, “What is a sonic?” “Is that sonic?” “Does sonic ever go that fast REALLY?”
And hey it’s for a good cause so give if you can! And check out a great cool dude on his birthday! He’s hip! He’s probably funny!

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.

 Us panelists (Me, CrusaderVX, Rai, and AutonomousZed had a whale of a time, the audience dynamic was pretty good, we had some great questions, and I think it turned out pretty damn well.

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:

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!))
