A brave brony recorded the entire MLP live show in HD. I don't think I'll be able to watch this abomination.
Nope I gave up after the Gotta Share song. Those damn hind legs kept bugging the crap out of me. Not to mention the "phony" voices. I really wish they'd do something like what some Anime stage shows do. Get actors and people in costume, but dub it over with the actual voice actors. It's so much better.

I....

..............

I can't sit through that. I just can't. I've watched a full minute staggered by 15 seconds a time... and I just can't do it. My body rejects it like it rejects other pre-FiM MLP youtube clips.

I skimmed through it to see if there was anything interesting, and there were no more pop ups -_-. However, at one point Twilight's back legs collapsed even further. Her ass dragged across the floor, while her legs just trailed behind.
This sounds like some sort of Lovecraftian nightmare.

First the insanity of last night in OT and now THIS...
I gallantly applaud any of you fine fillies or gentlecolts who can watch that.

As for me? I reiterate:

I can't blame the actors, those costumes look like they're unweildly to wear. They should put springs in the back legs or something.

Edit: These giggle at the ghostly changes are terrible.

The songs are pretty good, though. They kinda butcher Rarity's part in At The Gala.

Also this moral was almost written for the audience.
"I've learned that sometimes the way we expect things to go isn't the way they end up going"

That sums up the production values of that performance. Not only do they use paper, but they don't even use ENOUGH paper.
It's a production for the actual target audience and entirely adequate. Totally watched the whole thing.


That said, the costumes reminded me of this gem:

I stopped after the sudden Pinkie pop-up. That was the only worthy thing to watch.

I'm just glad the kids sound like they're enjoying it.... I guess. Otherwise, my feelings can only be expressed by that RD quivering gif/jpg :( :( :(

He's awesome, but I still want to know what kind of voodoo magic he did to get approved almost instantly.
after waiting 16 months with the incorrect email, they finally deleted my account and notified me.

i bitched on facebook and per their suggestions used an ISP email. go in in 5 days. these past 2-3 weeks they've really been pouring through the registrations a lot of people have gotten replies/validations/deletions within a week, some even two days.

Ya it really depends on when you happen to fill out your application because it seems like it happens in batches. I've heard of people getting approved within a day. Others, I've heard of waiting 6 months. I applied back in mid May or June. Still enough time for me to have forgotten my password though. :-/

also, saw this on Ponibooru and kinda have to agree. The fan-made fur suits look far better than Hasbro's "official" costumes.
Twi trumps Trixie every time and it never gets old.

Nice. Took me about 2-3 months to get validated, which was nice, because it allowed me enough time to learn the in's and out's of GAF and, essentially, avoid the early ban-hammer.

Didn't stop me from losing my avatar for almost a full year for not following the size restrictions. You juniors nowadays have it so easy. I can only assume that it won't let you upload files that don't meet the restrictions.

The questions was like "will there be blurays and dvd's?"

the answer was "yes, there will be dvd's included with the toys, and dvd's sold separately"

nothing about blurays from what I heard.

I will use this moment to restate


Updated

What do you think of the format? It's probably what I'm going to work with. (Screencaps, cut/paste, tracing, drawing onto a screencap. I feel like B^U... ugh)
I'm disappointed, to be honest.

I fully expected for every answer to every question to be "Who?" with the occasional "What," "Where," "Why," and "How."

:x

Also, either get photoshop for gimp, yo. MS Paint does no favors.

A few pages back, everyone was lamenting the new, stricter rules, and now you're saying juniors have it easy these days? =P We're the ones most likely to get banned first offence on any of these new rules.

Juniors getting banned quickly and permanently has been the norm around here for a long while though. With all these fancy faqs about posting etiquette, you guys do have it easy. Posting a meme on here used to be digital russian roulette if you were unsure if it was banned or not!

daaaaaawwwwwe Belle cares for her cousin after all.
Finally got some clarification on this:

[02:27] <AdawgDaFAB> Carek, did we confirm or deny Bak pony as Belle's cousin?
[02:27] <Csims> she's forever alone
[02:27] <Csims> her sad lot in life
[02:27] <AdawgDaFAB> That's what I thought. You are her only family right?
[02:28] <Firehead> Eh... she uses GAF to socialise
[02:28] <Csims> yes thats the funny part
[02:28] <Csims> gaf is her family

So he isn't REALLY her cousin, it's just that PonyGAFers in general are like family for her.

Also:
Every pic of Belle interacting with others is all in her head, as she talks to them online! - WHAT A TWIST!

It's pretty simple to not get banned. Talk to everyone as if you were speaking to them face to face in real life. This is of course assuming you are not someone the news likes to interview on a regular basis to drive up their ratings. Oh, and don't post links to websites that are banned.

So being the no-talent-cannot-draw person that I am, I imagined myself as a pony using the Pony Creator.



Couldn't really get the kind of tail I wanted but I think I got pretty close with the mane. I wish the pony creator had some facial hair options. Would have added a little bit of that red hair on the chin. Anybody with more talent and the ability to draw wanna try their hand at playing around with it?

Not bad. I started out doing the exact same thing because I have negative art skills. Eventually it evolved into a real design that Carek drew for me. Basically my point is, eventually you will probably have a GAF drawn pony too ^__^. At the very least, someone with photoshop skills might be able to do a quick shoop to enhance what you have now.

Well it's easier on the eyes for one thing. And speaking of eyes, I think the fur suits' eyes look more show accurate than Hasbro's costumes. Aside from the fur suits being more "upright" oriented, I think they're better looking than the awful Hasbro costumes.

I dunno, I guess compared to some of those OTHER nightmarish cosplay pics that have been posted here it just doesn't seem that bad to me. I'm mostly speaking in relative terms. Human cosplay > fursuit cosplay any day. I just think if Hasbro is going to have a live show with people in Pony costumes, hypothetically speaking, they really should take a page from the fursuit book since it seems to have more effort put into it. Does that make sense?

I didn't mean LITERALLY go for the bi-pedal anthro look (but then no one, especially kids, the audience they're shooting for, seems to complain that a guy in an upright Pluto suit walks around Disneyland), I'm talking fabric, coloring, and the eyes.
