Also, everyone should go join The AV Club.

Oh, it wouldn't be any fun if everyone did.

Update reading list

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

As far BRTD's evangelizing of the show goes, this is all I really feel like saying:

Quote from: Matthew, 6, 1-8
“Beware of practicing your righteousness before other people in order to be seen by them, for then you will have no reward from your Father who is in heaven.

“Thus, when you give to the needy, sound no trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may be praised by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward.

But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving may be in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.

“And when you pray, you must not be like the hypocrites. For they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and at the street corners, that they may be seen by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward.  

But when you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.

Also, everyone should go join The AV Club.

Oh, it wouldn't be any fun if everyone did.

Fair point. Any like-minded individual, then.

The problem with free speech is that it’s hard, and self-censorship is the path of least resistance. But, once you learn to keep yourself from voicing unwelcome thoughts, you forget how to think them—how to think freely at all—and ideas perish at conception. Washiqur Rahman and Avijit Roy had more to fear than most of us, but they lived and died as free men.

You're seriously comparing a verse about not being self-righteous and praying quietly to talking about liking a TV show?

You've been known to use Bible verses for things as trivial as whether to ban a poster or not. Triviality & lack of proportion is the name of the game on this board.

Quote from: Lauren Faust
When I took the job, I braced myself for criticism, expecting many people — without even watching the show — to instantly label it girly, stupid, cheap, for babies or an evil corporate commercial. I encourage skeptics like this to watch My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic with an open mind. If I'm doing my job right, I think you'll be surprised."

The funny thing is the things people are complaining about in the show (who probably have never even seen it) are EXACTLY the type of things Faust said she was trying to move away from when she created the show. She explicitly stated that she wanted to make a show that little girls could watch with their parents that the parents could actually enjoy as well, and that would have positive and strong female characters, not just ones obsessed with being princesses and girly stuff.

And yet the show is called "My little pony". I guess one shouldn't judge a book by its cover.

The rest of this thread is stupid. Search for the SNL short Maraka, enjoy it, and go home.

This forum also used to be a place very much in touch with political reality as a whole but not anymore just earlier I was reading that the average gauge of electoral votes for Obama is going to be around 310-350 or a similar repeat of his 2008 margin.

Let's get on topic.

Backpack's song isn't as bad as Map's song (It's still pretty bad though.) Pulse later they shortend both songs, thankfully. There must be an "I'm the map" challenge video on Youtube somewhere.

Why do I know this stuff?

But anyway, Red, don't complain about shows that weren't ment for you.

I think, in a practical sense, that's a pretty poor map. Very few would be able to interpret it.

The community itself is somewhat ironic in nature, though it sprouted up in the first place due to being a good show.

Also, don't complain about us while you watch the magical tentacle girl crap. Tongue

I'm not aware of anybody who watches things about magical tentacle girls, mainly because I'm not aware of any anime that combine those two things that aren't hentai (and would like to remain not aware if possible and finish watching Kara no Kyoukai in peace).

Also, Antonio's map, while not for the layman, is better at accomplishing what it's meant to accomplish, which is something highly technical, than Dora's map.

Didn't you know that anyone who likes anime also loves fictional rape of many different varieties?

This thread has gone off into creepy country.  If you want, you can make an official Dora watch thread or whatever in Off Topic, but none of this s**t will be tolerated in the future.
