  2. Wait what the heck?! This link was live as of a week ago! WHY, LEGO, WHY??? D:
  3. Oh yeah! I was supposed to blog about Saturday and Sunday, wasn't I? Saturday (9/15) was most definitely the high point of the con. I started out in the artists/vendors room, bought a bunch of buttons and a Vinyl Scratch hat. Ran into a friend of mine from my local meetups who was selling some of his own handmade plushies, and bought a Twilight and Fluttershy. I headed over to the game room, where we had about 35 people gathered for a massive game of "Are You A Changeling" (Ponified version of Mafia / Werewolf). BASELESS ACCUSATIONS AND SUSPICION is always fun! I also attended several panels and discussions. Some were boring, some were really interesting. The Writer's Panels were great, and videos should be popping up online as soon as Everfree Radio gets a chance to edit them. I went to the electronic artists' concert (with Eurobeat Brony, Chain Algorithm, Taps, F3nning, Seventh Element, and EHT), but technical difficulties forced them to delay the performance until later in the evening, so I headed off to karaoke! Oh, karaoke. Friday was my first time ever visiting a karaoke, but Saturday was the first time I actually went up to sing. M.A. Larson and Amy Keating Rogers weren't there yet, so I held off on MLP songs, but I still went up a couple times to sing "Hakuna Matata" (Big mistake, I didn't know that song nearly as well as I thought) followed by "Mr. Blue Sky" (<3). When M.A. and Amy showed up, me and my friend Shim rushed over to sign up on the queue for a couple MLP songs. As promised, we sang "At the Gala" for Amy (who wrote the lyrics for the song). Her response? She hugged me. KDSJFKASDJAKDFJAKDSFJJKSAFDJKFJAKJD A few songs later, we also got to sing "The Flim Flam Brothers" for M.A.,who wrote it, and completely NAILED IT. The audience even joined in! A couple of girls in cosplay ran up and did all the Mane Six speaking lines for us (including swooning Rarity), and everyone chanted "CIDER CIDER CIDER" and sang along to the chorus! (And yes, I did Granny Smith's part too. =P) I got standing applause and what must have been a dozen brohoofs after that, including from M.A., who called it an "extremely impressive" performance. I later discovered that he Tweeted a photo of me and Shim on stage during the song, and Daniel Ingram retweeted it. ADSKFJASKDFJSDAKFJAKSDFJKJDFJKASDKJFKDSAJFKJDKDJDFKSDJFKSJDFKJSDJFSKDJF After that, we mostly just hung around watching the other performances, but I did join in a rendition of the "Bad Horse Chorus" from Dr. Horrible and of course the inevitable "Bohemian Rhapsody" before heading off to the concert. Since the concert was delayed so late, they just decided to merge the concert and late-night rave, which just made everything better. Seeing Eurobeat Brony perform live was amazing, especially with LASERS AND GLOWSTICKS AND RAVE DANCING. Oh, also they gave everyone free foam pony ear headband things! I got blue ones. Sunday (9/16) was a lot more mellow, probably because everyone was tired from all the awesomeness the day before. There wasn't a whole lot to do in terms of actual con activities on the last day, but I did attend the musicians' panel and got to ask a couple questions. After that, most of my time was spent hanging out with my brony friends, roaming the con looking for things to throw our money at (I bought a second hat! A knit Twilight Sparkle cap~), and playing several more rounds of Are You A Changeling. Unfortunately, here's where the first and only bad thing happened: Some lowlife decided to steal my Fluttershy plushie out from under my chair while I had my eyes closed during the game. It really sucks, but the guy who made it offered to commission me a new one at a discount price. Oh, well. At least I still have my Twilight plushie, and I didn't spend too much on the Fluttershy to begin with. And at last, the con was over, and everyone had to head home. :C Speaking with the con staff afterwards, it sounds like everything was a huge success, and they can't wait to start putting together plans for Midwestria 2013! This was one of the best weekends ever~ ~ (A VTOAHMKEARH)

    Quote From My Dad

    Your dad should consider himself lucky.
  5. Rochard, Vessel, and for those who beat the average price, Dustforce. Picked up my bundle earlier today. Can't wait to see what other games get added later this week!
  6. Also notably, those who pre-order the game will get a bonus actual minifigure of the game's villain "Rex Fury"!Looks like this game is like Traveller's Tales LEGO games meets Grand Theft Auto, so in other words this will be a very very cool game.~ (A VTOAHMKEARH)
  7. Today marked the kick-off of the first Chicago-area brony convention, Midwestria 2012! Holy crud. It's been amazing so far. Despite the fact that I only got to arrive pretty late in the evening, due to my job. It's about 3:30 AM right now so I'll just recap a couple things and then go to bed. MLP:FiM writers M.A. Larson, Amy Keating Rogers, and Cindy Morrow are in attendance, and just kind of hanging out with everyone Not a lot of custom merch, unfortunately, but I'm sure I'll end up with at least one plushie and hat by the end of the con Both M.A. Larson and Amy Keating Rogers participated in karaoke. Multiple times. They're pretty good singers! Hangin' out around Final Draft and Joe Stevens of Everfree Radio M.A. Larson randomly started talking to me, and challenged me to go up and sing an MLP song on stage. (Tomorrow, since the karaoke queue was full tonight) Sweet Celestia, M.A. Larson himself is challenging me to sing karaoke (which I have never done in my life) of a Pony song. He also wants me to sing one of Amy Keating Rogers' songs, like Smile or At The Gala, so she can hear it because she will be there. Went to a rave. Like an actual rave. WITH GLOWSTICKS. AND LASERS. It was dubsteppy and pretty fun, though tiring. Hung out with a bunch of my local brony friends afterwards and we hung out and played card games until 2 AM oh my gosh there are still two days left of this So yeah. I'm going to bed now so I can get up early and spend THE ENTIRE DAY at the con tomorrow. eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee ~ (A VTOAHMKEARH)

    Google Chrome

    I did a little digging and it sounds like Google actually is having issues with the installers since yesterday. You should be able to work around it with the standalone installer Here: <Removed>. Let me know if that doesn't work, though. EDIT: Whoops! Looks like there was a BZP-prohibited link hidden on that page. Removed to play it safe. ~ (A VTOAHMKEARH)
  11. Jeez, Johnny, I'm two feet away. You don't need to yell. Anyone here remember playing this on Lego.com way back in the day? Crazy to think it was over 10 years ago since it launched; less than a year after Bionicle started! Several fond memories: That one guy with the pointless three-question movie trivia Running around delivering coffee to the movie crew Spotting Takua in the Commissary (!!) Being a stunt double, jumping across crocodiles Falling off catwalks ALL THE GLITCHES So yeah. Good times. Oh yeah, and guess what? IT'S STILL PLAYABLE. WHY, LEGO, WHYYY??? Protips: - If the first area is all glitched out and invisible for you, resize the window and it should fix it. - Never hit the Escape key, it freezes the game. - Hold Z to run (So much better than walking everywhere!) - If you played a long time ago, your save file probably still works! Try logging in and hitting Continue. ~ (A VTOAHMKEARH)
  12. Pretty much this. I won't just instantly back something just because it's under the BIONICLE name.Assuming it's something I personally approve of and deem worthy of my support, I'd choose an amount depending on the reward tiers; most likely around $20 if past projects I've already supported are any indication.~ (A VTOAHMKEARH)
  13. Yo BambleI heard you like wet mane poniesso I made you thisHappy birthday!~ (A VTOAHMKEARH)
  14. 22-second years? Wouldn't that make me around 1.4 million "years" old!? :PAnyways, thanks everyone for all the birthday wishes!I'm older today,Twenty-two to be exact.So get off my lawn.~ (A VTOAHMKEARH)

  16. I was coming here to say this. If you can access the System Recovery Options (The mode with "Startup Repair" listed), try running a Startup Repair. That usually (but not always) fixes this issue. I've got another idea if that doesn't work.
  17. I met John de Lancie. Also got his autograph. ASKDJFKDJSFKAJSDKFJAKS ~ (A VTOAHMKEARH)
  18. Yes. Yes it is. He is seriously just such a nice guy, and he was genuinely happy to meet all of the bronies attending the concert. He's an actor, most famous for playing the omnipotent "Q" in Star Trek, as well as Discord from My Little Pony (who was intentionally written to be like Q because Lauren Faust is a Star Trek fan). You might also know him as Shapiro from Torchwood: Miracle Day, or as the voice of Professor Fitz Quadwrangle in the video game "Quantum Conundrum". The event was a performance of Mozart's opera "The Magic Flute", in which John did the narration. He actually specifically requested that bronies attend, so all of us in the area made a big meetup (around 40 of us!) out of it. Even though I've never been to an opera before, the performance was really great, and getting to meet him after the show was amazing. ~ (A VTOAHMKEARH)
