No Word In Elvish, Entish, Or The Tongues Of Men

Journal Entry: Sun Jan 29, 2012, 9:36 AM


My local Asda just started stocking blind bags, and guess who went and bought a pair?

This guy!

First one out of the hat was a random colt. Accidentally binned the packet with his name in it, so I'm going to dub him GrapeKeister:

...And then, there I was, one bag left. No courage left to forge through Asda again to find another. I hesitated, having picked them at random. What if it was another random background pony with no fanon awesomeness? Or even the exact same pony again? I bit the bullet, tore open the bag and shook its contents out from within:

:icondashishappyplz:

So I suppose that now I've bought some of Hasbro's merch, I can start calling the shots here as a consumer. The other options were that god-awful "Rainbow Dash dresses in style" with butterfly wings, and AJ, who also looked crappy. The entire pony collection barely filled one shelf at Asda...one, small shelf.

Anyway, there is a fantastic brony who is making 3D renders of my favourite ponies...and a few of those other six boring ones who keep hogging the damned spotlight. I am getting the intense urge to buy a 3D Printer, now:

Also, I've been listening to the Skyrim soundtrack for some time now. It's beautiful. Spellbinding and awe-inspiring, yet...familiar. How and why is that? Well, after getting bored and sitting for the last hour listening to the - amazing - LOTR soundtrack, I found out why.

I mean, listen to this all the way through:

And finally, for those wondering about my ponysona's cutie mark...it's a copy of Breaking Dawn.

At first I was like... really Coffee? Breaking Dawn? And then I looked at it because I couldn't remember just what it is...

What you did there, I see it. And I like it.

If I get the printer, which is unlikely, so no. :(

I did a lot more, those are just the ones I remember off the top of my head. But I'm noticing that a lot of games I like, he did the music for.

Well... DAMNIT! I was gonna do the high detail MLP 3D renders when I learned more about Maya but of course someone's gonna beat me to it. D:

And I commend you for being able to work up the courage to go and buy those. Were I to find a place that sells anything I'd want, I'd probably do it, after a couple of drinks to loosen me up. XD I've given a pony speech last quarter in speech class but that's as far as my courage will go.

And if you'll excuse me, time to go watch Lord of the Rings.

I'm a jealous person of the ponies. The only problem with 3D printers is I don't think they do color...so you'd have to paint them. I think.

Okay, so those 3D renders are bloomin' a-mazing, so much better than the g-mod versions, frankly those are a little creepy. I would gladly pay for 3D printings of those renders. In fact, I WANT them... I want to find a place with a rentable 3D printer and then buy the renders off this guy to print them.

Also... I've had the Rainbow Dash and Fluttersy versions of these for about a month now: [link] Manliest feeling ever, buying those.

Two ASDA stores in town. One mission. I must steel myself, for this is a journey fraught with perils both great and small. The danger of both stores not selling these bags is ever present, but I must seize this opportunity. I have the money, I have the time, and I will find me some bucking blind bags!

On second thought, it's actually a little chilly outside. Might wait for things to warm up a bit first.

Go forth, Welshie brony! I dunno if they do a Spike, but if they do, you totally gotta repaint him in the Welsh flag for your national identity. xD

Lightweight. Wrap up warm and stiffen that upper lip!
