You know, I'm really tempted to start a bunch of indiegogo projects that I have no intention of going through with just to swindle money out of gullible fanboy dumbasses.

If they're anything like kickstater, they're a sort of escrow service where the original project doesn't see a dime and the money is returned to all contributors when the project fails to reach the goal.

Also schwerpunk: consider yourself lucky, because the "bad" bronies are probably the most visible to the mainstream. They're loud, obnoxious, and seem militant about pushing the show down everyone's throat whether they like it or not.

Minority or not, they give a negative image to everyone that has a pony avatar or even casually mentions they like the show. It's rather unfortunate, because I have no problems with the people I just described.

That is precisely the big difference with Kickstarter; the pledged money is taken (provided you marked your project as "flexible funding", see FAQ).

However, this is apparently not the case for the campaign discussed here:

Keep in mind that this campaign is set to fixed funding. If the goal is not met, all contributions will be refunded.


The "refunded" part is interesting. In Kickstarter, the money is not refunded if the project fails, because it's simply not taken in the first place.

Ahem, erm... All of this ^

Especially renewed interest in animation personally. Been watching all sorts of cartoons recently.

Also, especially in their money throwing away antics. I mean, I can see small meetup being alright, but full on cons are out of the ass retarded, and DeLancia should've been "Screw Money. Screw Documentary".

I personally can't stand the cartoon nor this ********** fad/obssesion that people have over it, it's borderline creepy.
Not a fan of fads in general anyway, just screams of people who can't think for themselves so they just latch on to whatevers hip at the time..

BTW:Why the hell is r e d i c u l o u s censored?

A donation just so Bronies can have their own island? This shows people how sad and pathetic they really are when it comes to their overrated show.

rule34.paheal.net, a database of cartoon pornography related to specific media franchises, is currently hosting 12,000 pictures related to MLP:FIM. Compare this to the 16,000 FIM pictures currently hosted by e621.net, an anthropomorphic artwork site which also accepts non-pornographic drawings. These numbers seem to indicate that pornographic FIM fanart is being produced and published at a rate 3x that of non-pornographic art. Also, note that no other franchise has received as much new pornographic fanart as MLP:FIM since that show's first broadcast (except possibly Pokemon, which has a more geologically-widespread fanbase). Take these facts and do with them what you will.

I should buy rights to a certain FM freq and buy a radio station just to play that radio jam from Portal 24/7. I'll start the fundraiser now.

Hey, if you saw how much Final Fantasy porn there is, you'd be amazed if Square didn't just make a --- oh, right, Final Fantasy X-2....

I see that video has way more dislikes than likes. "Explores" or "misrepresents"?

and howard stern is a truth-teller? Are you on crack?

That's like saying all doomers are going to shoot up schools. I remember people in the gaming community getting really butthurt when retards like Jack Thompson and Tipper Gore showed up and started blaming everything on Doom , Marilyn Manson, Mortal Kombat and Grand Theft Auto. Was there any truth to that? No.

I think the story was: he was banned from coming there a few years ago when he pulled a stunt called "grab my ass" where he wore assless chaps and told women to "get a piece".

This dude is beyond nuts. This is all he does. He's known for talking about sex on the radio and a movie called "Private Parts".

Since the meat of it comes from interviews, wouldn't it be the bronies misrepresenting themselves?

I am hearing reports that Stern has been trolled hard by those call, but since I can't stand his voice, I couldn't watch the video to hear the callers.

I listened to the first couple minutes of it and even if the people he's interviewing are serious (which I doubt), he's extremely gullible to think that the "brony" community as a whole is a perverted, pony-sex crazed mob. The vast majority of "bronies" are just dudes having a bit of fun enjoying a slightly above average cartoon. Wouldn't surprise me if what CSonicgo said was true about them trolling him.

Though it is also true that there is an obscene amount of rule34 material for MLP.

Agreed. Stern is a shock-jock radio personality and entertainer, which I have no problem with. But when people start thinking his opinions have any actual merit, I really have to shake my head.

Besides, the only good part of his show is Sal and Richard's phony phone calls.
