A TED Video

Hello everybody.

I stumbled on a video on TED. It was about this black man who went undercover into the Alt. Right-wing online. And he discovered some amazing truths. And when I heard what he had to say, it moved me to the core of my being.

It was what I always wanted to say, whenever race or sex or whatever came up and didn’t have the words to say. So I want to share this man’s story with you. And I hope that each of you will watch the talk with an open mind. Thank you.



It is official

It is official. I am unable to follow through on anything. But still, I will maintain this blog, such as it is, to the very best of my ability. If for no other reason, than I think that I might be able to help yet. I don’t know how, when there don’t seem to be that many people reading yet. But I learned I do not care if anyone reads this or not. Creating the posts themselves is really fun for me! And even if I don’t post as often as I feel I should, I post as often as I feel I need to.

Maybe I will never be that good at blogging. Maybe I will never be popular. Maybe I would never be regular or post anything interesting to others, or maybe I will. But I won’t try it, except to try to make myself happy with writing to the best that I know I can write. In the end, that is all I can do.

If others like that, then well and good. If nobody likes it, that is fine too. The point is I am stepping closer to the writer I want to be, with the practice I put in by writing for this blog. And that is enough for me. And if I help others learn to see something new, or learn to see themselves as special and worthwhile in their own way, then that is some sweet frosting on the cake!!

Twelve Days of Christmas!

An old tradition dated back to 1780, or roundabout, when Christmas was spread out longer than one day. And the song is about as old. And it is one of my favorite songs.  So I had to focus a blog post on it! Here are some versions of it. Please enjoy it!

The first one is my personal favorite now. Because Pinkie Pie sings it! So expect it to be…different.

The first one is my favorite of the two, but the second makes me laugh and shows some real remix talent among the fanbase.


The traditional version. And you know. Bing Cosby. Had to do it.



Lastly, for laughs. Um, yeah. Jeff Foxworthy. Because this is a wonderful way to poke fun at my family and friends :p Kidding guys! Just kidding! But I still love it because I did grow up hearing it every single year!

For Those Days Gone By…

Hello again.

Yes, Christmas is one those holidays that is associated with cheer. But for many of us, it is also sort of a bittersweet kind of holiday. It is often hard to celebrate with a light heart when it is heavy with longing for those who are not there no more.

This post is for those that I loved and is no longer here, either because of them passing away or those who no longer want to walk by my side. For those who are alive but left me for whatever reasons, I harbor no ill feelings. Life is too short for it, and our Savior had said often that we are not to hold grudges but forgive ninety-nine times nine.  And for those who are on the other side of the grave, I will love and hold you in my heart until again we meet.

And this is a song that captures that bitter yet sweet feeling to a tee. So I think it needs a special place in my Avent posts. Enjoy, and think tenderly of your own days gone by.

Auld Lang Syne

Type: Poem

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And auld lang syne!

Chorus.-For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne.
We’ll tak a cup o’ kindness yet,
For auld lang syne.

And surely ye’ll be your pint stowp!
And surely I’ll be mine!
And we’ll tak a cup o’kindness yet,
For auld lang syne.
For auld, &c.

We twa hae run about the braes,
And pou’d the gowans fine;
But we’ve wander’d mony a weary fit,
Sin’ auld lang syne.
For auld, &c.

We twa hae paidl’d in the burn,
Frae morning sun till dine;
But seas between us braid hae roar’d
Sin’ auld lang syne.
For auld, &c.

And there’s a hand, my trusty fere!
And gie’s a hand o’ thine!
And we’ll tak a right gude-willie waught,
For auld lang syne.
For auld, &c.




Yes. There is a character that also knows the loss of parents. And in one of the most fitting of song collections put together by a company out to get your Christmas money, She and her family sing a song about those that are no longer there. This is one of the many reasons that Apple Jack is Best Pony.
And for the non-bronies out there reading this…you know, almost all of you, that means my favorite character. Though it keeps bouncing for me, between AJ, and Pinkie Pie. But more on her another time.

Hello Everyone

Greetings to everyone.

First off, I just realized that my readership spiked. Thank you all. ^_^ I am so very glad that others were willing to read my little post about my favorite Christmas story of all time! You all made my day.


Also, I have been a little back on my posts again. But this time I’ll be real about it. It is not because I have no ideas, but, well, I been distracted. See, my Dad died this month. And I been thinking of him lately, and missing him.

I am not one to talk about this. I don’t want to worry my family after all, when they are missing him too. But it is true, and even though the worst of my grief has faded quite a bit, but some of it remains. A kind of dull ache that I don’t know will ever completely go away.

And on this note, I wanted to share something. It is one of my absolutely favorite episodes. And this reactor is becoming one of my favorites. He is hilariously honest in his reaction. And will react to almost everything that a fan would suggest that is MLP related. Even those they should never watch or react to. I’m looking at you Smile HD. I’m looking…

So I want to share this with the rest of you. And it is a great reminder to me that though the ones we miss may be gone, their memories, and the impact they made when they were here will remain forever.


A Christmas Carol

Hello Everyone! Here is one of my favorite all-time stories! A Christmas Carol!!

The story, written by Charles Dickens is still my favorite Dickens. And it was a wonderful, and wonderfully condense tale full of wonderful characters, drama and that feeling of warm fuzzies that we have come to associate with Christmas.






I was going to post links to the various movies found on Youtube. But there was simply too many of them!! What a strange problem to run into….so you’re on your own there. However, I can give you some reviews. Such as the one between Books vs Movies!!

Seriously, this series by Bandgeek cannot be overstated. It goes over the novel, matching it up against not one, two, three, even four movies. It goes against five movies! And most of them are my favorites. give them a watch, preferably with a hot cut of tea or cider at your side, and a crackling fire in the hearth…or one on your t.v. if you got nothing better.





There is so much material out there to explore this tale, and that is probably the real power of the Christmas Carol. There is so much in the work to explore, often without feeling too done. the only reason we can get tired of it is that of how much there is!


And I hope to see you again tomorrow with another day of Christmas Glee!

Benifits of being Brony?


So, I was kicking around on Youtube, in a break from the start of moving frustrations, when I stumbled on this little gem. It was posted on WatchPony and is the very first video of the channel. I think it made some very valid points.

And for those of you who are not bronies for whatever reason, it is applicable for most fandoms that you are passionate about. What do I want to point out? Finding something you are passionate about is good for you!

Don’t be scared to let others know what it is that you love. If they don’t like it, it shows more about them than you. And really? Do you have time to spend on those whose passion is tearing others down? Didn’t think so either.


Reading some Christmas Tales

Hello again. So today, for Christmas, I found us some stories. In the first one, is a list of Famous Christmas stories, such as Gift of the Magi, and The Little Match Girl. Some are suitable for children ten and up, Some are for more serious reading. We got some off-beat stories, and Novels, and even something of a Christmas songbook.
