Fourth Brony Anniversary

Posted by Avohkah Tamer , in Ponies Mar 29 2015 · 120 views

Or specifically, the fourth anniversary of the night I started the show and became a fan!

I know I made and posted my annual song cover a few weeks early, but I'm really glad I did, because two days later I came down with an awful and persistent cold that's even still affecting my voice.

Anyways, not a whole lot of new stuff to talk about this year, since season 4 ended shortly after my last anniversary entry, and the fandom has seemingly gone into a bit of a hibernation during this insane 329-day break (not counting EqG: RR) before Season 5 starts this Saturday. Even still, meetups have been awesome, fan-created creative works are higher quality than ever, I've definitely made some good new friends in the past year, and I'm really looking forward to what this this next year will bring. I'm even hoping to attend Bronycon this year if possible, since for once it doesn't conflict with the Brickfair VA weekend!

Oh, also, if you haven't already seen my song cover mentioned above (of "You'll Play Your Part"), please check it out! It's only gotten a handful of views so far, and I'm really proud of it.

You'll Play Your Part

Posted by Avohkah Tamer , in Ponies Mar 07 2015 · 157 views

Jeez, it's been ages since I last blogged.

So although it's not my 4th brony anniversary until the end of the month, I've already got my new song cover ready ahead of time, so why don't I just go ahead and post it early:


I know, I know, I said before that my next cover would be The Flim Flam Miracle Curative Tonic. I still fully intend to record that song to bookend my first cover, but this amazing song from the season 4 finale really just resonated with me and I had to record it first. Also, it's finally an excuse to record a song starring best pony. (I'll leave the question of "which one?" up to your personal interpretation)

What do you think?

Brickfair: Day 1

Posted by Avohkah Tamer , Jul 30 2014 · 151 views

Gonna keep this Day 1 recap entry short because I'm super tired:
  • Got ~2 hours of sleep
  • Woke up and got to flight with an hour to spare
  • Flight went swell, trekked across airport to meet up with Bfahome
  • Arrived at hotel and met up with Takuma
  • EXPO CENTER
  • Basically wandered around saying hi to people and setting up MOCs
  • Slapstick comedy shenanigans with Sumiki, Xaeraz, Zatth, and co.
  • Got breadsticks at the COMBINATION PIZZA HUT AND TACO BELL
  • Word Crimes
  • Played bingo and didn't win
  • Played door prizes and didn't win
  • BZP VINE SHENANIGANS
  • Walmart for FOODSTUFFS
Tomorrow should be a lot more action-packed since more exhibitors and vendors will finally be set up, and more event things will happen. I'll try to get lots of photos as well.

Need Some BrickFair Advice...

Posted by Avohkah Tamer , in LEGO Jul 08 2014 · 465 views

I've got something I hate to admit, but I'm at my wit's end and need help, so here goes...

I will be at BrickFair VA this year, as several of you already probably know/assumed, and I've already got travel and hotel arrangements taken care of, but there's one thing that I haven't done yet.

I, uh... I haven't actually registered for the con yet.

YES I KNOW, I need to register/pay by the 14th, and I will, but I've been stuck on one minor detail: deciding what to put on my Brickbadge bricks.

For the past couple years, I put my real name on one brick, and my username on another. This was dumb, because now I have two completely identical badges aside from the year number. This time around, I want to put custom text (not my name) on both bricks.

Since I've been drawing a blank for the past month straight, anyone have any brick text suggestions? (max. 24 chars/brick)

I'd be eternally grateful for any help. :C

Update: Thanks for all the suggestions so far! I've got one brick figured out, but I'm thinking I want a Bionicle-specific reference on my other one. I could do something like "UNITY ▪ DUTY ▪ DESTINY", but that seems like it might be too simple/obvious. Anyone have any better ideas (Or think I should go with UDD)?

Update 2: Bricks chosen and registration complete! Thanks, everyone!

Third Brony Anniversary!

Posted by Avohkah Tamer , in Ponies Mar 29 2014 · 251 views

Oh hey, it's my 3-year anniversary of when I first started watching MLP!
 
Since you guys probably know the drill by now, I'm gonna cut to the chase.
 
As you may have expected, I've recorded another cover. I was looking for a song with a male vocalist from this season to sing, but my only choices were either one of "Weird Al" Yankovic's many songs in Pinkie Pride, or John de Lancie's fantastic "Glass of Water" song as Discord. And honestly, I'm not worthy of even attempting to cover those.
 
So I continued looking for a different song to butcher cover, when I remembered having done these:"Hm, that idea couldn't possibly be applicable to an MLP song cover--
>Filli Vanilli
>The Ponytones
>Flutterguy song
 
...Oh yeah. I can make this work."
 
So, without further ado, here's my (pitch-shifted) Flutterguy cover of "Find The Music In You"!
 

 
Be sure to let me know what you think!
