Oh man, you guys.

Take a wild guess who's officially registered for BrickFair.

Yep, you guessed it!

Takuma Nuva!

And guess who our very own Evil Blog Master is going to be bringing with him to BrickFair!?

That's right, HIS COUSIN! (Man, you're so good at this)

Okay fine, I'll stop with the fake-outs and make my announcement:

I've just officially registered and paid for BrickFair!

I'll actually be hopping on Takuma's train when it stops through my area, hanging out with him all the way to BrickFair, and even splitting a hotel room 'cause he's just that awesome.

This'll be my first time to BrickFair, so any tips from longtime attendees? Like how do I even mentally prepare for this level of amazing???



Find Me At Brickworld!

Posted by Avohkah Tamer , Jun 16 2012 · 957 views

Update: I'm home! 'Twas fun meeting you, Captain Marvel!

Hey guys, I'll leave this entry short and sweet since I'm typing it from my tablet.

So, how many of you would you like the opportunity to MEET ME in REAL LIFE at Brickworld tomorrow?!


...No one? Eh, I'm not surprised. But hey, I'd still like to meet any of you who might be there!

I and my brothers can be found at Brickworld Chicago all day tomorrow during the public hours! I'll be wearing one of these dark green BZPower shirts (Thanks again, Bionicle Raptor!), a backpack, and maybe I'll also have some sort of name badge with "Avohkah Tamer" on it (if I can manage to throw one together before heading out the door tomorrow morning). If you spot me walking around snapping photos of literally every MOC, feel absolutely free to stop me and say hi!

I hope to see you there!



Brony Meetup!

Posted by Avohkah Tamer , in Ponies May 05 2012 · 1,016 views

Oh, man, tonight was awesome.

I just got home from my first-ever brony meetup at a local Colonial Cafe restaurant! Around 25 people total showed up to hang out and discuss everything pony. (Photo*) (Also, try to guess which one is me)

We showed off our pony collections on a big table, jokingly argued over who is best pony, sang Winter Wrap Up (among many other songs), ate ice cream, and then afterwards about 10 of us raided a nearby Toys R Us for all their pony stuff!

Only I didn't actually buy any pony stuff, because they didn't have anything I was still missing from my wishlist. Still waiting for the new blind bag ponies wave 2-4, as well as the TRU-exclusive brushables that come out this fall.

So I walked a couple aisles over to the Lego section and they had several boxes of Series 7 minifigures!
I quickly dug through them and managed to find all 16 minifigs with no dupes, as well as Wolverine's Chopper Showdown set. Woo!

All in all, an awesome night. This particular brony meetup is monthly, and I am so attending again in June.

Tally Hall, Rob Cantor and 1 more...

There's no one around, and your phone is dead.

Out of the corner of your eye, you spot him:

Many of you who frequent the interwebs have probably heard this viral song by Rob Cantor and the meme it spawned.

What you may not know is that Rob Cantor also happens to be a member of my favorite band, Tally Hall! (Rob's the one with the yellow tie)

So yeah, I find this whole thing sort of awesome. Tally Hall has all sorts of crazy and catchy songs just like this, and PEOPLE MUST KNOW.

Seriously though, check them out if you haven't already.

A Random Question For Everyone

Posted by Avohkah Tamer , Apr 08 2012 · 784 views

Just so my blog doesn't get stale (again), I've got a question/discussion topic for you.

If you could have any ONE superpower, as yourself in your own life, what would be your choice and why?

Choose wisely.

Also I'm pretty sure this is my shortest blog entry yet.


1-Year Brony Anniversary Celebration

Posted by Avohkah Tamer , in Ponies Mar 30 2012 · 1,733 views

So one year ago on March 29th, Takuma Nuva convinced me to watch Episode 1 of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. I then went on to watch five more episodes that night. That was the night I became a brony.

Posted Image

I did not get a healthy amount of sleep that night.

In the past year, I've bought pony merch, helped out a bit with several brony collabs and projects, and I even got to meet up IRL with a brony in my area for coffee! (He even gave me an amazing hand-carved woodwork Fluttershy!)

So, in celebration of an entire year filled with pony, I've decided to face my fears and upload a complete vocal cover I recorded of The Flim Flam Brothers Song. Enjoy!


Bumped because it was halfway through Page 2 today.


So, Um, About Legend Of Korra...

You know how I said Avatar: The Legend of Korra premiers on April 14th?

Yeah, um...

Actually the first TWO episodes will be premiering.


No joke.
