Cartoon Ponies and Kink

I enjoy the new My Little Pony cartoon series. It’s pleasant, generally well-written fluff and has even managed to sell me a toy or two, which is obviously its reason to be. My girlfriend and I have even cosplayed “Equestria Girls”, the magically-transformed human version of the Ponies. But since I do have a crowded, …

Girls With Slingshots Cameo

I made a guest appearance in today’s Girls With Slingshots webcomic! That is indeed me, by the way. I’ve met Danielle at Katsucon and Intervention (both awesome cons, BTW) and she’s a lovely, fascinating woman. So I’m glad to score a cameo spot. Hard to imagine someone in 2014 who doesn’t check their e-mail for …

Harassment

Whether it be a fan con or a lifestyle event, from this day forward I will do everything in my power to make sure that every convention with which I am involved has an anti-harassment policy in place, well-publicized, and enforced. For decades, I have been under the impression that fans and kinky people were …

Agents of S.H.O.K.O.L.A.D.A.

A Twitter conversation… [friend]: Awesome thing I forgot to mention earlier: I finally have an official dotgov.gov domain registration account ๐Ÿ˜€ [me]: I’m guessing I can’t bribe you to register “shokolada.gov” for me, though. ๐Ÿ˜› [friend]: *giggles* Not really, unless you can come up with some official-y agency or program acronym that matches ๐Ÿ˜› [me]: …

Visitors here probably know this already, but “pi” (the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter) is approximately 3.14, which is close to the way Americans often write March 14th (3/14). So, geeks have been declaring March 14th as Pi Day for the last several years, and celebrating with tasty confection. As …

Steampunk and Pie

When I have some money lying around for a Steam videogame purchase or two, I may need to pick this up and try it. Really, it’s the music that’s selling this one. And pie! Though on the other hand, I am a little sorry the trailer’s through Machinima.com, since thanks to them we may never …

Girls with Slingshots

And now, I would like to take a moment and plug the excellent webcomic “Girls with Slingshots” by the charming Danielle Corsetto. I am doing this in part because I’ve enjoyed her work for years and wish to encourage people to support her strip, and in part because I accidentally got to have dinner with …

Strangely Obsessed With Tubs of Jelly

So, this is a song from a My Little Pony episode where three little girl ponies are trying to find their teacher a boyfriend. My friend Maya says that she thought of me instantly when she saw the “tubs of jelly” pony – especially the *interesting* smile on his face ๐Ÿ™‚

Master of WAM

I’m absolutely stunned: Valentalae of FetLife and Twitter has written a filksong about me! And now I’m hearing talk that someone wants to record it? Whoa. It’s to the tune of Rupert Holmesโ€™s “Escape (The Piรฑa Colada Song)” and the original post is on her blog. I’m re-posting it with permission: “I got done with …
