<< has no sympathy
Shhh... everything's going to be okay...
Can't go a whole day without posting stuff?
...Seth.Who let you out of your bondage?
Uhh... Seth... You okay? I worry about you.
Pony withdrawal. It happens to the best of us.
Seems about right for this blog today. xD
Twi? Something the matter?
what in the?... i dont even
Needs moar Luna imo
Hang in there Seth! I feel the same D:
If this is what going mad is like, I'm not sure I want to try it. Ever.
That is exactly what is going on in my head! >_<
This is what today has been like.
I agree, but today is supposed to be an equestria daily free day. Lets try to make it to the end!
This is how Seth felt the whole day...
what is this i don't even
Madness?THIS. IS. INFRINGEMENT!
You know, I'm hoping at midnight there is this most amazing giant post that's like a drawfriend, story update, pmv madness bonanza.
Seths gone to that weird side of youtube again..
What the bucking hay? O_O
What the? I don't even...
Well, to be fair, I think this is all of us right about now.
I know that feel, Seth.Also, what the heck did I just watch? *checks video description* Well... alright then. Crazy Twilight needs no explanation anyway. :)
This proves something, right here.It's possible to get addicted to ponies.Therefore, I better open up a pony rehab, so when/if this fanbase ever dies, all the folks in withdrawal can come to me. I'll make millions!Except I'll probably be suffering from withdrawal as well. Dang...
@XyroTR1 Know anything a step worse than withdrawal? 'Cause that would fit the bill right about now.

GRR SETHISTO YOU'RE NOT SUPPORTING THE BLACKOUT PROJECTGODDAMNIT SETHISTO BURN IN HELL COMMUNIST NAZIFUCKING IDOTCAN'T KEEP AWAY FROM A MAGICAL PONY FOR 1 DAYREMEMBER NOW OR FOREVERDUMB FAGGOTSYOU ALL SHOULD DIE
@darkeagle"but it's nice down here... we all float down here." X3
How fun. So peaceful and delightfully iNsANE..
John Madden John Madden John Madden
@DcmRulz I'd say it's more insane.
@LighthouseX3 Really? It's more like a category 20 hurricane for me.
ЙАААААЗЬ? На МОЁМ Эквестрия Дейли? No way.
So much for a blackout...
Dat ear twitch
This video describes us all when we don't have ponies for a day.
If you want some fun, take the banner and lower the censor bars. You know what I'm talking about...
@BeergogglezzHave some sympathy, Sethisto is demonstrating that he clearly can't go a day without posting at EqD. The black out is to demonstrate what the Internet will be like of SOPA passes- but worse. What we've just witnessed is what will happen to Sethisto if EqD goes down.For Sethisto's sake, we can't let this pass!
You're not supposed to be posting. Tsk tsk.
a whole day without pony? fuck that shit, mang.
@CityFlyer502/spray [target=self] Anti-Snark Ointment;/pray;I think hurricanes only go to 12, at which point their maximum point wind speed approaches the speed of sound.<< readies for correction
You could plant crocuses. That's people did for fun before the internet.
This is how everypony will react if SOPA/PIPA passes lol
Twilight Sparkle responds to SOPA and PIPA, or Sethisto responds to the state of mind that Twilight is in when she responds to SOPA and PIPA.
@LighthouseX3 No need to worry about corrections. Point is, it's anything but floating peacefulness for me :P
Wow, Seth couldn't you go one day without posting anything pony. What a shame.LOL at everyone who's going stir-crazy. I'm not affected by the withdrawl because I watch Kyrospawn's pony clips everyday. So, I'm surivivng. XD
I feel your pain, man.
@hyreia So true. And this is just one day... imagine a week. He'd be permanently phsycho'Twi'd.
Don't worry, twilight, I'm descending into madness too!
...seth, please go take a nap
...but seriously, when are my story updates getting here?
@MasterofRoku I wouldn't say we're going stir-crazy. We're simply trying to keep each other entertained.
>says there will be no post today>3 post so far
Hey look it's me, waiting for folks to actually read the fics I write.Oh well, who cares what I think, right?
CityFlyer, I'm not sure mental breakdown are the best form of entertainment...
@BilliantFacade"The Great and Powerful Trixie refuses to update the blog today until all anti internet bills are sent to the moon."I really don't think these count as updates.
@Vipera hehe derp
@RoyalWatermelon Well, it's all we have at the moment :P
Seth, I have found out something wonderful!EVERYPONY IS MAD! hahahaha...
It's astounding.Time is fleeting.Madness takes it's toll.
@Ravey at SOPA we are
@sethisto Maybe you should update Equestria Daily, that always perks up your mood... oh wait, SOPA ╯°□°）╯︵ ┻━┻
@BilliantFacade i mean loopy, topsy-turvy, mad :D hahaa...i shall hold a teaparty with my teddybears...
It's always sorta funny how these simple silly posts get way more comments than the serious posts usually do. :P
So much for blackout.
Ah Twilight, don't worry. You'll get used to the madness after a while, and you will come to love it, as you will see the world for what it really is, and in fact be saner than all of your mentally stable friends..Meh, either way, I bet in an alternate universe, where SOPA and PIPA are actually supported enough by the drooling masses to ever be passed, this is how all of us, being addicted to the internet, would react.
@Octavia You kidding? It's glorious! *Insert Fluttershy's evil laugh* (Yeah I know. I've totally lost it.)
all the people suffering from the loss of sanity are invited to my teaparty, haaahaahaa...
@Ravey Cool. I'll bring muffins.
@Cityflyer *Puts oversized top hat on head* would you like a scone?
@Ravey Why, yes. Thank you. *Graciously accepts scone.*
OK, this is a little too much crazy, even for me. I'm gonna go watch Pinkie descend into madness on loop.
wow... that's kinda scary...
@Cityflyer AHAHAHAHAHAAAAA!!!!....*Puts on serious face*.
Half the fun of this fandom is the comments. Which might be why Seth is bored. No posts leads to no comments.Just watched Lesson Zero again, and found the cupcake frosting scene even funnier. After all, Twilight was worried about who would get more frosting when there was an extra cupcake. So what was she planning to do with the extra one before she dropped it on the library's floor?Also been thinking about the origins of Celestia and Luna. They were not involved in the Hearth Warming Eve episode. The banner might of just been symbolic of the new harmony between the 3 tribes, also at the time unicorns controlled the rise of the sun and moon. So maybe Discord or the 3 tribes created the princesses. After all Discord showed he had the power to remove horns and wings, so what stops him from giving them?
Seth just posted a video with copyrighted content, whelp, time to take the site down.
@Hawklaser That's true. If it weren't for the last two posts, we would have hit the cap already and descended further into madness...or take to the chat rooms. So then, we're not crazy by pointlessly posting comments. Right?
that was posted close enough to midnight here in the uk, so I say, it's ok.
Hey guys! Tomorrow is the one year anniversary of Equestria Daily's first post!
I know that feel bro...
Acid is a hell of a drug.
AAAAAGH I CAN'T TAKE IT ANYMORE! I'M GONNA GO MAAAAAAAD! AAAAGGGH!
@CityFlyer502 Might of taken a while to hit the cap as I think its 5000. Though different posts spark different conversations.Those other ones kind of got stale once they started getting deeper into the political stuff.Plus Ponies and Politics don't seem to mix that well. >.> Now trying to think of a better ponyfied name for D&D.
Crap! The bill has already taken effect! Equestria Daily! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hold on a sec, guys? Did the video get taken down? *Eye twitches*
@HawklaserI heard Ponies and Parasprites in one of the comments of Friendship is Dragons.
SOPA strikes back. Now how long for "Return of the Pony"?
That's me if SOPA passes.
My gosh I would describe this SOPA thing in all words but don't you think entertainment will be lost to some people forever.... Bronies won't grow, TV shows won't see there comeback, and now officially we have to watch the DVD or on TV to watch it, SOPA has MADE A STOOPID MISTAKE, They do not know how to entertain themselves they will make a dumb decision and will not be creative similar to what happened in Phineas and Ferb's Quantum Boogaloo.
lol, Sethisto.Bored are we?
@BronytoLegendaryIt's not about the entertainment, it's about the money. Those in marketing and movie business are supporting the bill. IMO, it's a bad idea. Piracy has its ups and downs, but I'd rather know what I'm getting into before I buy something. I wouldn't just go out and purchase MLP:FiM for myself if I didn't know anything about it.
My God! I can't wait for today to end!
@Hawklaser Well then this one is officially about our descent into insanity.
only 6 more hours Seth! you can make it!
SOPA'D!Ow, my web freedom!
And this is EXACTLY why Twilight Sparkle is Best Pony!No, really.
@Jay6Dullness and bored children will increase by 59% if we don't show about this great show
Damn...We just don' got SOPA'D. :(Why must you do this to us Seth? (Or was it actually SOPA? o.o)
@CityFlyer502Oh, it's not a failin'.But we're sure somewhat Ailin'.This SOPA thing sure is getting on all of our nerves.Poy yada lee, poy yada lee. Wish that SOPA had no existence to spare.So, it's certainly worth adressing if it keeps on arresting... us of our pony type love.Then we'll take to action and not even by a fraction, that bill will be nuked by fifteen tons of love.Poy yada lee, poy yada lee. That bill has stirred up to much in internet goers we.So, if you could do us a little favor and pick up something with a little flavor. Then maybe we'll all meet.So as we Barbecue on, because we're not a bunch of oxy-morons. There's no way we'd let any of that bill pass complete.Poy yada lee, poy yada lee. There is no room for SOPA as far as we can see.
@XyroTR1Confound this withdrawal and boredom, it drove me to draft a comprehensive essay about the nature of the underlying stresses that brought about SOPA and Protect IP, and how to adress those stresses more responsibly than with either of these potential laws....Might as well post it when I've got a final draft. Not yet though: I want it to be good....so bored......
Still not funny.
@BronytoLegendary ¿Qué? Vcr no comprende. SOPA and PIPA aren't entities or groups of people, they're bills that some idiots in the government want to pass due to the facts that they make millions from media companies "lobbying" for them and that they are completely out of touch with the general public.
Oh god, my pony addiction... it's hitting me hard @.@
@Darkon *Fifteen tons of Dove.Get it right idiot, sheesh temps.
So... Bored. Celestia help us...
@vcrmasterSOPA needs to be told about the fun and creativity here on the internet otherwise they still won't realize its going to change history forever increasing dullness not find all these amazing my little pony fan art.
I hope that i'm not the first to notice that ia Spanish SOPA and PIPA would mean soup and pipe respectivelly....given those facts, I can't help but imagine that no Spanish-knowledgable Congressmen are taking these bills seriously
@Jay6Maybe Hasbro/Hub/Studio B/Lauren Faust might lead the charge in changing the paradigm for entertainment thanks to us? If they don't I could very easily see us doing it on our own. The foundation's have been partially laid by things like Youtube and Netflix, but the old guard keeps things from changing much.
@BronytoLegendaryDon't know if trollingOr just plain ignorant
If you guys are bored, check out our website! Everypony, especially Seth is welcome to join.
@FlareMight just do that, though I am not telepathic, so hard to do without knowing the site name or a link.
Trollestia's done it now...
I finally don't have any homework that's due right now and had all the free pony time in the world... and this happens. LOL :l
Seth? Are you posting with your tongue when Trixie isn't looking? Shame on you. :3
Guys, we could make breakfast tacos. Just puttin' that out there.
OK, I know amidst all the Anti-SOPA Anti-PIPA stuff going on that not much else is going to be covered. However, I was bored, and trolling through the internet, and discovered this little gem:http://annieawards.org/consideration.htmlMy Little Pony, nor any writer, producer, or animator on the show (that I could find) has absolutely NO nominations. Not even a nomination of any kind?What?So I checked this site: http://annieawards.org/rules_and_categories.htmlAnd there is nothing in the rules that invalidates MLP from any category. The driving rule is that it needs to be released in the US on the (specified) media during the award qualification time, which is January 1st, 2011 through December 31, 2011.I'm assuming I'm just running into some sort of political, "This award show is anti-Vancouver productions" or something like that. In order to be a voting member you have to prove you are actively working in the animation field, and I'm assuming most if not all of the voting members are Hollywood only.
@ilovehotpocketsalot Oh man. Now that's the definition of irony. Why am I suddenly thinking about that Twilight Zone episode with the guy that breaks his glasses and can't read books?
████ ██████ ██████ ██████ ██ ████ ██ ████ ██ ████ ██ ████ ██████ █
Guys if SOPA passes bronies will have to be forcefully destroyed, sorry to break you're dreams.Also Sethisto, You really upsetted the blackout movement.
@BeergogglezzWatch Out, We Got A Badass over Here.
Click on my name for the site. It's called Lunar Cabinet.
Bronies will never die...
@Beergogglezz That might just be the straw that starts up Ponynet and puts it on the road to sentience. So how long til Ponynet sends back a P-2000 to protect Seth?
Need new pony's now Or i will start to baby kittens
@Beergogglezz"Y-O-U-R,Y-O-U-apostrophe-R-E. They're as different as night and day.Don't you think that night and day are different?What's wrong with you?"
I see what you did there.
@BronytoLegendary Er... Um... No, what I mean is, SOPA and PIPA can't be told anything. They are a bill in the Legislature which some ignorant and corrupt politicians who are in the government only for money, fame, and/or power are trying to pass because they are wanted by companies in the media industries (which already plagiarize within themselves, but refuse to admit it) that "donate" them money for "campaigning".
Jimperator. You should tell you're grandfather how you feel towards the show you like.And bronies will die if it is passed, although the blackout movement made a critical hit on SOPA. Not that shit equestria daily did anything.Sethisto is a wasteAnd saying you won't die out doesnt make it true.
Who wants to proofread my fanfic? It's about Awesome McCoolname and how he saves Equestria and the Mane 6 from certain doom, becoming the elusive 7th Element of Harmony. It's seriously the best thing ever, for real guys.
SOPA'D... feels like being rick roll'd only times the internet worse
Why talk about SOPA? The reality is that equestria daily will be destroyed along with all other brony connection websites. It will be illegal to defy someone as a brony.And SOPA isn't an act for power or any of that shit. It has reason or else it wouldn't be a threat. It's an act, that instead of independently selecting piracy and eliminating the independent target, it selects the primary target and genesis to block, therefore destroying all potential and current threats to piracy.
Need...ponies....*twitch*God, if it wasn't for my video game addiction I would be lost to madness right now.
No! They SOPA'd Twilight! This looks like a job for... VETO STAMP... man... guy... er... um... oh, got it...This looks like a job for... the non-plothole, non-corrupt legislators, or possibly President Obama if the former does not exist!
I miss the poniesThey are gone for a reasonBecause of SOPA
And now the video appears to have been "SOPA'D", lmao.
@Thederpsauce Drawing and guitars are keeping me sane. Not much of a gamer myself.
1. Watch the show from tv2. Brony elimenation will help us allEven you.
No Equestria Daily for one day is absolutely brutal, to imagine it post-SOPA...On the bright side though, 13 senators dropped their support for SOPA, and the president doesn't support it either. So BAM.
@BeergogglezzReading your posts makes me wanna shoutALIENS
@BeergogglezzI doubt bronies will die out if it is passed, we just won't have an outlet to easily share with other bronies. Really all the show and community did was give us a banner to rally behind. After all, the underlying ideas behind the show and the community is what got this all started, and keep it growing. Don't underestimate the power of an Idea.
@vcrmaster Glenn Beck rails against SOPA and PIPA!! http://www.mediaite.com/online/glenn-beck-is-the-next-to-slam-sopa-they-will-shut-down-voices-like-ours/Ironically, as one who's listened to him for years, SOPA is exactly the sort of free speech-destroying bill he'd warned about for a long time trying to sneak through the back door.This bill has united the far-right with the far-left! It is the MOST HATED BILL IN HISTORY!!Ironically, it may end up creating the unification in the country Obama promised. United by our rage against SOPA!! :DAs South Park would say: FOREGT ABOUT THE GALGAMEKS?!! RABBLE RABBLE RABBLE RABBLE RABBLE!!
I NEED my Pony news.....this is getting redunkulous.
Wait... Sethisto made this post! He got untied! Shame, Seth. Shame. You should haven't posted. You knew good and well that The Great and Powerful Trixie had you covered today.
"Don't forget to spell-check, Or I'll come to your houseAnd throw a brick through your dad'sWindshield.Windshield."
Equestria Daily** Except for today
I do hope I'm not the only one laughing at the fact that so many people are still posting.
@CityFlyer502 I can't bring myself to draw or play my guitar, as I lose all motivation to do both when I realize that it would be illegal to cover songs and draw with my somewhat unoriginal style if Representative Lamar Smith (damn, he's even from Texas, as if Rick Perry weren't ripping our pride into enough tiny shreds) and the media industries get their ways. Besides, my sanity left me for another guy a long time ago. I'm doing fine without it and I hope it never comes back.
http://www.walmart.com/ip/My-Little-Pony-Applejack-Sweet-Apple-Barn/15729080applejack.....with a......BLUE HAT????]]
@Jimperator There's an exception to every rule. Though that could have worked as a banner for today.
Kid, bronies run off the Internet, it's how you operate.Sorry, but no.
@vcrmaster Well I don't do either to be noticed or anything. They're both stuff I do for fun. Though as far as the drawing is concerned, I have been practicing lately so I can turn out something decent to share with you guys.
And now a haiku:I logged on todayEqD had no PonyI wept tears of sad
boy, did the internet let its NUTS HANG today or what?
@Huundee Oh, well. Back to business. LOL
@Alondro "Cause this is MY United States of freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble!" Meh doesn't have the same ring to it, but I'll take what I can get.Oh, and Glenn Beck would never support a bill that hinders his ability to ridicule people and make fun of what they did on on non-Fox media outlets. He'd lose all his ratings and his show wouldn't be funny anymore.
I was fine with wordpress. I only use it to post. I was fine with reddit. I don't use it at all. I was fine with wiki. I don't need it every day.But EqD is less OK. I am going into near pony-withdrawl. I don'n know hw much longer I am going to be able to deal with thiWHY EQD? WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY?
@CityFlyer502I would start writing, but I'm too distracted. Got too many things on my mind.
If these bills pass, thousands of bronies will be unable to watch the show or new episodes because they don't get The Hub. Many of us rely on YouTube and streams for access to the show.
EQD+You-> (you have now been addicted to Ponies)EQD+SOPA(Pony withdrawal)Strenght,Will,Barter,Survival,Weapon,and Mental state -5(Damn no ponies for a day really screw up your Stats)
Don't worry.... the unicorns will un-censor everything
@CityFlyer502 I too play music and draw more for my personal pleasure than for that of others, but I weep for my friends who are in bands or exhibit their art. For it may soon be illegal to cover "Crossroads" and "Ghost Riders in the Sky".
@ChrisDamnit, now how am I going to quest?! Gotta find me some ponies right quick.
BTW go here to sign the petition to stop SOPA and PIPA: https://www.google.com/landing/takeaction/
Please stop SOPA I can't take much more of The Great And Powerful Trixie
lol i just got sopa'd ans please stop Trixie
@Thederpsauce Well, that's life for you. Something always keeping us from doing what we want to do. If you ever do write something, look forward to reading it.
See everyone. This is the weakness of Democracy. We have to fret about our freedoms being taken away.Notice how Equestria is an ideal land? One word: Diarchy.Think about it. Not to hard of course, but think about it.Getting real for a second. I don't think there's a good chance that SOPA/PIPA will pass, especially after the major spotlight it's recieving. It's good to show support and rally against it, but remember, the sky isn't falling.
EQUESTRIA DAILY, SOPA IS TO STRONG, EQUESTRIA DAYLY, NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
@vcrmaster Well that's why we're making ourselves heard. So it doesn't come to pass.
@Huundee So need to watch that show again.@JordanWhile it would definitely hinder many of us, I doubt it will stop us. After all, look how successful Prohibition turned out, and that was before the internet existed at all. We would find a way, especially as long as VCRs and DVRs exist and postal services still operate.
I just want to live in Equestria
Kill it with fireThen Napalm StrikeThen dance on the ashesThen go about day.......oh wait we're talking about SOPA? Ugggg
I really cant say how up and down this day had been, went to walmart, found the blind bag ponies in the trading card shelf, AND THE IDENTIFICATION STILL WORKS!!!! i got clear rainbow dash, the 2 clear twilight sparkles, and the clear pinkie pie. along with the only 3 of the mane 6 they had, rarity, pinkie pie, and fluttershy, then at toys r us (i work there) i found a box in the back storage room, we had just got a new shipment and it was on the truck i was unloading. so i sneaked around the manager and i popped open the box, found another set of the clear ones, and the rest of the mane 6 in regular paint, rainbow dash, twilight, and applejack (i payed for them, of course) but then......equestria daily is doing THIS!!!!!
I know that feel, bronies.At first, I couldn't go to sleep without watching an episode. 24 days later, I went into withdrawl. Quitting cold turkey sucks, let me tell ya. So a week later, I found EqD.And now I lurk the blog almost 24/7.(I swear, I'm not downplaying withdrawl. It's just that pony withdrawl is serious, too.)
SOPA don't give a shit about usIt's the congress were talking aboutAnd it probably will pass.
Well wouldn't this count as a break for Seth since I'm not sure he got one last week. He deserves one right?
If this piece of shit does pass, riots will break out and I will be part of it. #OccupyEquestria
@MasqueradeBefore Ponyarchive.org got shut down, i downloaded all the episodes in 720p cc, up to episode 11 of season 2. now i just clip em 1080p from uploaders. i have all the episodes downloaded, so i marathon em every once and a while. i also have a youtube playlist i stream over my bluray players youtube app. not really withdraw isnt a problem for me, its the lack of pic updates (i save the ones i like on my pc :) and the little news tidbits and info that leaks into here for us to read.
@MailMareDitzyreplying to myself here, just to clarify, i will not pay 2.99 for an episode every week from itunes, when the hub, or hasbro, could offer the episodes cheaper from their own site.
@Hawklaser You do bring up a good point there. When you restrict something, that's when people are at their most creative. Though it may require jumping through hoops, people find a way to get to what they want/need.@Masquerade Any withdrawal is serious. Though based on what you've said, I've long reached the point of no return.
dont worry Seth 4 more hours till its tommorrow then you can cure your pony withdrawal
@darkeagleOh, I wouldn't worry about going mad, my dear homicidally insane Darkeagle.You know, you remind me of myself when I was your age. All I cared about was riding narwhales and sleeping in honeycombs and drinking babies' tears... A word of advice, when riding a narwhale. Mind the pointy end.Ah, but there I go, waxing poetic about my misspent youth. Now, where were we? Ah yes. Now you, you can call me Ann Marie. But only if you're partial to being flayed alive and having an angry immortal skip rope with your entrails! Ha ha! If not, call me Sheogorath. Daedric Prince of Madness. Charmed.
SOPA better not pass or it will leave all us bronies cut off from eachother
