It’s never too early to think about “Pointless Ponies” at Whinny City Ponycon! I have already selected the participation prizes and will be pondering what will be the prize that will represent the “Pointless Trophy” for winning the game. Of course, there will still be a cash prize for winning the Pointless Final. You have to go to Whinny City to find out what the cash prize will be!
As announced earlier, I will have special guest Greggo of Greggo’s Game Shows as my “Pointless Friend” for this version. There are still two live surveys out there and everything up until the last episode aired is in play with these questions.
Ideally, I would like to get 100 respondents for each survey. Feel free to look up the answers to the questions such at the MLP Wiki (mlp.wikia.com). Your participation is greatly appreciated. Hope to see you at Whinny City Ponycon at the Hyatt Regency Schaumburg from March 31st thru April 2nd.
That’s all for now. More later.
Hello everyone! I am Qcom aka DJ Squirrel and I have a place where you can interact and chat with your fellow fandom lovers about what else? fandoms! No show is too small or too big to be talked about. Every friday and saturday night from 8-10pm eastern time. If you’d like to join us, head on over to This link here. If you’d like to chat with us in our chatroom, go here. Thanks and see you there!
Editor’s Note (DS): Personally I’d rather not touch anything related to politics or the US Government on this site, as we’re suppose to be about cartoons, and even we fail at that most of the time in terms of coverage. But so many folks did wake up to a living nightmare. Blame the writer’s of Back to the Future, they predicted it all. StatManDan wrote some kind words, and if that lifts the spirits of at least one of our three readers just a tiny bit, its worth it.
And now some words from StatManDan.
After the results of the US Presidential Election, some are joyful, but others are in despair. This is for those who are in despair right now. I hope I am not infringing on Sprocket’s territory, but I feel this needs to be said right now.
Today and last night, it was disappointing. There’s no two ways about it. We are still sad. So what do we do?
- We do what we always do—take our licks, pick ourselves back up, and carry on.
- We do what we always do—we learn from our mistakes and do better next time.
- We do what we always do—we keep our heads up.
- We do what we always do—be ourselves, continue to do good, and be there for each other.
- We do what we always do—never give up hope for better times for us and be confident that we will win next time after a loss even as painful as this one.
- We do what we always do—hope and push for a better future for ourselves, our family, our friends, and others.
- We do what we always do—we live to fight another day.
- We do what we always do—we’ll pull through this.
- We do what we always do—we’ll find a way to make the world a truly better place.
- We do what we always do—and we’ll continue to do so.
I firmly believe there is still room in this world for honestly, laughter, generosity, kindness, loyalty, and magic (and even empathy at this point). If I take anything from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, it’s the lessons that the show teaches and the mettle in the characters who personify the Elements of Harmony. I’ve made some friendships in the five years I’ve been watching the show and hope to make more as the show progresses.
There is stuff to look forward to in 2017 such as a seventh season, conventions, the continuation of the comic series, chapter books by GM Berrow, Equestria Girls specials, and of course, the movie in October. If the ride ends in 2017, I will be on here and proudly say this was one of the best rides I’ve ever been on and my hope will be for the fandom to continue and continue to espouse the show’s messages long after the show’s final episode.
It’s not much, but as upset as I or anyone else is right now, I am determined to bring smiles to everyone I know just like you would for me. Because we do what we always do.
