Back In Time

Posted by Avohkah Tamer , in BZPower Oct 30 2013 · 139 views



Back in time to my birthday, in fact!
 
NOW EVERYBODY GIVE ME PRESENTS AGAIN.
 
So I guess I'm kinda glad I haven't blogged or posted much in the past few months, because I lost pretty much nothing. That's not to say I haven't been up to anything interesting, I'm just lazy.
My condolences to those of you who weren't lazy, and as a result lost a bunch of posts and stuff. (Honestly though, I'm so sorry :C)
 
Expect blog entries about some, all, or none of the following topics in the near future:
  • Pokemon
  • Weird Al Yankovic
  • Pumpkin (if it turns out good, I still haven't picked a design)
  • Team Fortress 2
  • Ponies
  • Doctor Who
  • Other Things
Alternatively, if you're too impatient to wait for my blog entries here, you could just stalk me on Twitter like everyone else, because I'm actually pretty active there.

I figured I'd hop on the bandwagon and toss up a random YouTube video from my old account!
 

 
*By "old account", I mean I don't post new videos to this account anymore, but I still use it for all my subscriptions/likes/favorites.

Totally Officially Finally 100% Confirmed for BrickFair

Posted by Avohkah Tamer , in BZPower Jul 19 2013 · 167 views
BRICKFAIR, HERE I COME, AWW YEAH and 2 more...
Many of you already knew I wasn't gonna let BrickFair VA 2013 pass me by, I just wanted to drop by and let you guys know that as of THIS MINUTE, the last details of my trip have been finalized and paid for!
If you're anywhere remotely near the DC area and are free on August 3rd or 4th, BE THERE (early) OR BE SQUARE.
 
Oh, and on an unrelated note, I just noticed the other day that my 10th anniversary here on BZPower was this past July 7th! I was planning to wax poetic about how much this site has affected me in positive ways and given me such an awesome group of lifelong friends, but I kinda did that already on my 2012 retrospective.
 
At least I have a Tohu spinny and you don't, neener neener. :nahnah:

Thiiis is your singing telegram, I hope it finds you well!

You're invited to a party, 'cause we think you're really swell.

 

Turakii's turning 21, so help us celebrate,

The cake will be delicious, the festivities first-rate!

 

There will be games and dancing, bob for apples, cut a rug,

And when the party's over we'll gather 'round for a group hug!

 

There's no need to bring a gift, just a post will be enough,

Birthdays mean having fun with friends, not getting lots of stuff.

 

It won't be the same without you, so we hope that you'll say yes,

Oh please, oh please R.S.V.P., and come and be our guest!

2012 in Retrospect

Posted by Avohkah Tamer , in srs entry, Ponies, BZPower Dec 31 2012 · 136 views

This past year has had its ups and downs, good times and bad, as any year would; but overall, it's been one of my most awesome, memorable, and accomplished years of my life. Not only because of things that happened and cool events I attended, but especially in personal growth.

I'm going to admit, I've always been a lurker online. That is to say, I've been content to join forums and websites, browse them almost daily, but rarely (if ever) actually post or contribute anything. I'm especially guilty of this on BZP, but also countless other websites and communities I've been a part of. I've always been too nervous and worried I wouldn't fit in, even on a website dedicated to a common interest (such as BZP). Really, it's a miracle I managed to get such an awesome close circle of BZP best friends, considering my infrequent (read: virtually nonexistent) activity here. This year, I actually started working to change that. You may not have noticed, but this blog has had more entries this year alone than from all entries in 2008-2011 combined.

Why the sudden change? Well, as ridiculous as it sounds, I owe it to the brony community. Although I was initially a lurker there too, the supportive atmosphere slowly convinced me to get more involved this year; to participate in discussions, and eventually even a few collaborative projects. I gained friendships, experience, and most importantly, confidence in my ability to contribute my humor, insight, and skills in any online community (not just among my closest friends).

In 2012, I went from almost no online activity to the point where I'm confident enough to record songs and even voice act for collaborative projects (more on that when it's completed).

Prior to this year, my actual social life also suffered. I had next to no real-life friends, and I was too introverted and shy to attempt to meet people. Thanks to a good friend convincing me, I got over that and started attending my local brony meetups (which are not as much about pony as they are about hanging out, playing video games, doing general fun stuff together) and got to meet people my age, with similar interests to my own. I'm still far from being a socialite, and I still get pretty nervous and uncomfortable in social situations, but I now have real-life friends who like me for who I am, and I'm not quite so terrified of meeting new people anymore. It sounds sort of pathetic, but I feel it's a huge step forward for me and I couldn't be happier.

In 2012, I went from almost no real-life friends, to about two dozen friends I hang out with on a fairly regular basis.

How does BZP tie into all this? Well, if it weren't for my newfound confidence in myself both online and in real life, I probably would never have attended BrickFair VA and finally met some of my longtime best friends (and all you other awesome bros). Seriously, if Brickfair took place just six months earlier, I probably wouldn't have had the guts to go at all. Also, it would have been February and cold and miserable, so there's that too.

All in all, 2012 was a great year of growth, self-improvement, and friendships. I hope 2013 is even better!
 

Here's a recap of some cool 2012 things!

Ask AT!

Posted by Avohkah Tamer , in BZPower Sep 21 2012 · 242 views

Ask me things and I will answer things!

Because jumping on bandwagons late is fun, and also because I need blog filler material since I have nothing else to blog about.

I'll put all answers here:

You can turn one - and only one- of the five Tally Hall members into a pony and insert him into MLP:FiM. Which one do you choose?

I'd say probably Joe.

and do you dream about farm animals

I dream of electric sheep. Do they count as farm animals?

What's the difference between a duck?

The difference is that one of them is a duck.

Who put the bomp in the bomp bah bomp ba bomp?

I dunno, but I'd like to shake his hand; he made my baby fall in love with me~

How much sand must you use to make an elephant stumble?

Approximately 28.2 sgu* of sand.

According to your comment on Cholie's Pirate Name entry, your initials are DST. Does this make you a Time Lord?

More like a Daytime Lord. And only during the summer.

Here's a tough one. You've been to both Brickfair and to a pony convention. Which, for you, was a cooler experience? (20% or otherwise)

I'd have to say Brickfair, because I've been a fan of Lego for a lot longer than MLP, because I got to meet and hang out with all you guys, and because I finally got to meet some of my long-time best friends in-person for the first time ever.
Honestly, it's a pretty close margin, though. Getting to hang out and sing karaoke with some of the staff writers from MLP was amazing. Better step up Brickfair's awesomeness in 2013!

Are you an android?
