    Are there any bronies here that will be going to bronycon this weekend?
    I'd be interested in perhaps shaing a drink sometime with people who actually like to discuss technology.

    Sure, I'm going to have one for dinner.

    Oh, no?

    Then I'll hang it on my wall.

    Oh, that's not it?

    I know, I'll buy one for my bedroom!

    Yah, that's it. It will go on my bedside table. Should look really nice there!...:D

    Are you enlightened? Or should I wiki?

    Ok, I Wiki'd, and I knew it was a matter of time before Kickstarter was used for evil. Just didn't think it would involve My Little Ponies!

    If you're looking for bronies check out the Minecraft forums... Where there are more 12 yr olds.

    Yeah...the brony convention.
    ha ha ha ha.

    well, I should have known this wouldn't be the best place, but i come here so often to lurk and read news. this is one of my favorite websites and one of my favorite forums to look though.

    I should have known that there'd be no bronies here.

    To clarify, Bronycon is the largest brony convention in the United states. It's being held this weekend near New York City, and i'm going there. It's going to be a lot of fun.

    I don't mind if you dislike me or bronies. you guise dislike a lot of things and thats perfectly okay. I just wanted to see if there would be anyone here who would be a brony and would be going.

    I laughed at some of these responses. hah.

    Thats a simplistic way of looking for it.

    To me, it's creative and inspiring. I've made a lot of My little pony related music, and i've gotten a fan base for it. something that would have been hard to do if it wasn't for the Community of Bronies that i'm a part of.

    The show is well written, bueatifuly animated, and done by top notch talent in the Voice acting department.

    There are bronies who make us look good, and those who make us look bad, as there are with people in the Apple community.

    But basically, yeah. A brony is usually a guy who enjoys a TV show called my little pony. Useally in their 20s, usually attending college.

    Okay, this sheds a little light.

    It's a group of guys who are too young to realize that My Little Pony was a line of toys made for six-year-old girls back in the '80's.

    Wow I can't believe this is a real thing. But this urban dictionary definition seems to capture this thread pretty well:

    I don't think any of them make you look 'good'.

    They're all dorks. Each and every one of them. Everyone knows the truly rad kids are into Darkwing Duck and The Real Ghostbusters. [​IMG].

    My Little Pony? HA! That's what my little cousin played with! Also Malibu Barbie (he was a weird guy). Me? I was cool. I had a Proton Pack!

    Not surprisingly, the "brony" movement is a lot like how moe began in Japan. Unemployed 20-somethings watching little girl cartoons until the economy picks up.

    I am, luckily, employed but I hear it is still pretty bad for college graduates. Oh and anime? Yeah I watch that.

    ...which is pretty odd, you have to admit. But eh, whatever. Maybe it's the kitsch factor that draws some people to it. I dunno. In and of itself it's perfectly harmless, really more a weird hobby than anything...save for those rare few who take it to terrifying extremes.

    Most of the cartoons I catch now and again are old ones I used to watch when I was a kid. I'll fire up Talespin or the abovementioned Real Ghostbusters when I get into one of those rare nostalgic fits.

    That was when cartoons were good, damnit. Not the crap the kids watch these days. Why, back in my day... :mad:
