A Journey into Madness: Diving into My Little Pony

"Bronies." It is a term that describes one of the strangest examples of cross-demographic appeal in recent memory. Males from the teenage years to adulthood who have fallen in love with the show My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, a cartoon series aimed at little girls. Now, this isn't the first time these two demographics have overlapped, but since, as far I could tell, My Little Pony is not a Magical Girl anime featuring miniskirts and naked transformation sequences, there seemed to be no obvious reason for it. And yet, the Brony phenomenon has taken the internet by storm, with bronies flooding message boards, creating pictures, music videos, and... whatever this is. I figured that there must be secret I was no privy to, and so I decided to take a dive into the extremely colorful world of My Little Pony. Below are my discoveries, and my conclusions.

Why I Love Calvin and Hobbes

Calvin and Hobbes is, in my opinion, the most perfect comic strip ever created. If you are sitting there wondering what in the world Calvin and Hobbes is, then I pity you. I truly, deeply pity you. For you see, dear reader, Calvin and Hobbs was a comic strip written and illustrated by a man named Bill Watterson. It centered around a young boy named Calvin, and his stuffed tiger Hobbes. The comic was one deeply entrenched in the imagination and wonder of youth and, as I have already said, it was perfection in comic form. I would write out a whole essay about why, but I already did that as part of a school assignment last semester. So I'll just copy and paste it and maybe make a few minor adjustments.

Review: The Doomsday Vault

Saw this book sitting in the new releases shelf of Barnes and Noble's scifi/fantasy section a few weeks ago, and bought it on impulse. This is something I very rarely do when it comes to books. So here: enjoy a review of a lovely little steampunk novel by some guy named Steven Harper.

So Hi

OK.... um... hi. My name's Seann. I read. I also watch stuff and play stuff. I think I'll use this blog to post reviews and hopefully be entertaining and whatnot.
