Fifth Brony Anniversary

*comes out of hibernation/lurk mode*   Almost exactly five years ago, I started watching Episode 1 of MLP:FiM. It's been a long time since then and lots of things have changed, but I'm glad to still be a fan.   In the past five years, I've put together numerous song covers, was a part of multiple voice-acted projects (which were unfortunately scrapped D:), made a lot of friends in the fandom (and still regularly do so), and even attended two conventions (and after this weekend, three!). It's not

The 4-Vacation Gauntlet Recap

As some of you may be aware, I had 4 consecutive weekend vacations this summer, due to BrickFair VA and Bronycon being a weekend apart, and my family planning two camping trips for before and after my convention trips. I'm on my way home from the final camping trip now, so I figure this gives me a good chance to recap.   Four vacations in a row sounds really nice and relaxing on paper, but to be perfectly honest, I'd say they make things more stressful than if they were spaced out. Imagine the s

Need BrickFair/Bronycon Travel Advice/Help

As I've mentioned elsewhere in posts and comments, I'm hoping to attend both BrickFair and Bronycon this year due to their relatively close proximity to each other and being on consecutive weekends.   (For reference, BrickFair is July 29 - August 2, Bronycon is August 7-9).   Here's the problem. Should I fly home after BrickFair and then fly back for Bronycon, or do I try to stay somewhere in the DC/Baltimore area all week until the end of Bronycon, and then fly back home?   If I stay the whole

Fourth Brony Anniversary

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 3

You'll Play Your Part

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 fir

Need Some BrickFair Advice...

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.

Third Brony Anniversary!

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

Back In Time

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZXN6tgE4g_4   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

My video is actually about Bionicle!

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

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 ha

Animal Crossing: New Leaf

I haven't outright mentioned it here yet, but I do have Animal Crossing: New Leaf! I figured I'd toss a short entry on here to let you guys know if you didn't already.   I'm the mayor of a nice little town called Everfree (Here's my town flag). Nice villagers, nice building layout. I've got a big ol' orchard of every single fruit up in the corner of my town too.   Mostly been working on collecting everything (furniture, clothing, fish+bugs+fossils), paying off town enhancements (I should have Br

Brickworld 2013

So... Pretty late question, I know, but anyone here going to be at Brickworld Chicago tomorrow?   I plan to be there (during public hours) as usual, so in the off chance a fellow attendee spots this blog entry, look out for the guy in the dark green BZPower shirt and the backpack, walking around snapping photos of every single MOC with my phone. If you see me, stop me and say hi!   Sadly there are never very many BZP members I've been able to find at the smaller Brickworld convention (I only met

Two-Year Brony Anniversary!

(Or if you're Pinkie Pie, my 24th Monthiversary)     On the night of March 29th, 2011, I started watching MLP:FiM at the behest of Takuma Nuva, and I was pretty much immediately hooked. Two years worth of regular brony meetups, brony voice acting projects, and one brony convention later, it's interesting to see how simply being a part of the brony community for these two years has impacted my life in significant (and largely positive) ways.   You guys might remember my 1st Brony Anniversa

Better Than Pokémon

Oh yeah. I went there. --- In all honesty, though, I can't wait to get Pokémon X/Y. A 3DS-native game is long overdue, if you ask me.   ~ (A VTOAHMKEARH)
