A quiet, crazy Yank who is also a hopeless romantic and eternal optimist. ... Yeah, that just about covers it.

Signal Boost: "A History of Disney Television Animation: volume I" Kickstarter · 10:39am Apr 17th, 2016

From The Acorn Cafe forum:

Hi guys and gals,

Just a little note to let you know that I’m near finished with the first volume of A History of Disney Television Animation, volume I. This volume has its focus on the first decade of the division, covering the origins of the studio, the people who were there and of course the development history of the shows.

Headcanon · 8:59pm Jul 12th, 2015

Some tidbits from my headcanon, just for the heck of it:

Fluttershy's mom was an earth pony, hence the pegasus' lackluster flight ability (except in times of stress) and affinity for animals.
-- Bulk Biceps is her brother, which would explain the apparent familiarity between the two in "Rainbow Falls" as well as his stunted wings and insane strength (earth pony parent).

AJ's mom was an Orange (Clementine), a violinist who taught AJ how to fiddle.

Update · 2:01am Jan 8th, 2015

Hey, folks, long time no blog, eh? :twilightsheepish: I know it's been quite a long while since posted on here or written anything, partly due to writer's block and an overall lack of motivation. Tonight, however, I have some good news: after some rewriting and a lot of much-needed editing by the awesome flywheelandfirefly, The Best Medicine has been updated! Overall, the story is still the same as when I first posted it

Oh yeah, Bronycon's happening, isn't it? · 2:45am Jul 31st, 2013

Yyyeah, kinda forgot to mention I was going to be there...my bad. :twilightblush:

Actually, I'm in Baltimore right now with the epic Descendant terrorizing the town and local museums. But don't worry, the city should still be standing when the Con starts.

...Mostly. :trollestia:

Adjustment · 10:57pm Mar 2nd, 2013

In my slow continuing writing of "The Best Medicine", I've added some elements to it that have led me to adjust the tags to include "Sad", which I probably should've had in the first place. My bad.

I apologize for taking so long to finish it, but my Air Force duties have kinda needed to take precedent.

Just my thoughts... · 3:51am Feb 7th, 2013

Recently on Tumblr, I saw a post that read along the lines of “It bugs me how some people say that R34 can’t be considered ‘art’”. I posed myself the question: are Rule 34 images truly art? Art, in my understanding, is the invocation conveyance of emotions and ideas through various mediums – audio, video, sculpture, painting, etc. Classic artists such as Michelangelo and Rembrandt often showed the human body – females especially – as nude to display the natural anatomical design. Why?

Soo....... · 6:41pm Dec 9th, 2012

....Yeah, I'm going to be putting something up here shortly for your consideration. It isn't finished yet, mind you, I'm kinda hoping this'll give the motivation to get the rest of it done. :twilightblush: Hopefully you folks will enjoy it.

Long time no see · 9:29pm Jun 9th, 2012

Well folks, I'm back (sorta) now from USAF basic training - I say "sorta" because I'm going into tech school and that's going to be tying up most of my time. I won't be able to write up anything new quite yet, but I'll at least be able to catch up on some reading.

Dang, I've missed these ponies and bronies.

Off I go into the wild blue yonder... · 4:26pm Apr 2nd, 2012

Well folks, this is it, I'll be heading out for Air Force basic training tomorrow. I think it goes without saying that I'm not going to have any internet access while I'm gone so I'm not going to be able to answer any questions or comments and I apologize in advance for that. I'd like to thank everyone for reading and commenting on my fics, it really means a lot to me that you enjoyed them.

See y'all in a couple of months!

<Insert clever remark here> · 7:11pm Mar 20th, 2012

So....someone on DeviantArt asked if I was going to put my fics up anywhere and I figured, "Eh, why not? What's the worse that could happen?"

...

Famous last words there, but I mean, come on, just because I like reading and responding to nearly every comment on my fics doesn't mean I'm going to go absolutely bonkers trying to keep up with things both here and on DA.

...

Yeah...I think I've pretty well screwed myself.
