Not going to comment on anything regarding JesuOtaku, I don’t follow her work close enough - do to her dropped series and schedules - for me to know much about her.
But this attitude is ridiculous. You can see the exact moment where this went from ‘Yay, no more enforcing gender roles on to inanimate objects’ to suddenly being an awful thing because boys made the change, and not girls.This is the crux of my issue with people getting up in arms over bronies having something to do with the lessening of the West’s stringent gender roles; the only reason people try to discredit the advancement bronies have made is because they are not girls.Every anti-brony argument regarding making gender norms dated just smacks of utter jealousy.Female fans of traditionally male-orientated activities or fandoms are jealous that they are not the ones who were able to enact great change. And you know what? It is absolutely fair to be upset that the boys got more media attention, more coverage, and that their movement was more regarded simply do to the fact they are boys.That is completely fair, and true. Bronies getting the level of attention they do does have to do with sexist norms that are ingrained in our society. However, that does not mean what they have contributed it worthless or that their entire fandom should be demonized. If you’re going to demonize bronies for the contributions they’ve made to helping ease gender norms, if you’re going to pull your support of gender norms being disregarded just because your group is not getting the spotlight, then you really don’t care about the issue you claim you care about. All you care about is being in the limelight.

Ah, just needed to pop in here to correct a misconception: what was being said before was not “it’s bad because boys are into it”, it’s “some people refuse to acknowledge it as a girl thing to start with”. I honestly don’t see this in particular as being a huge deal, as it’s pretty common practice to ask specifics so customers know what’s in stock, but generally when people get frustrated about this, it’s more about being mad the feminine quality of FiM is often really…downplayed in fandom (stuff like “LIKING PONIES IS MANLY” or “FiM is better than the past gens because it’s not as girly"—which I never got, honestly, it’s a girly as fuck show and unabashedly so). 
It genuinely is a thing that happens and something we should be critical of. Obviously not everyone feels that way, but enough do that it should be talked about. Digibro did a great video about it a while ago, if you hadn’t seen it.

That is also a really fair point, castorochiaro, I totally see what you’re saying there and I agree. That is a thing that happens, and it’s a silly thing, and it does need to go the way of the Dodo (meaning, become extinct). I think I got a little tangental in my response. :3

stop argueing about this bullshit…if you want to get a  toy which the massses thinks or calls a girl toy then so be it.. you don’t have to make a whole lecture about it or call it an acomplishment about gender roles… just do it if you like it… it’s like cosplay… just do it if you like to????Just stop forcing it down peoples throat or feeling the constant need of bring this and that up… seriously……the arguements are bloating up a problem way more then what it’s all about.. in the end we are still just talking about a mcdonalds toy..

This slurry look will be gone once the solution is ready. it will harden up a little so im stirring every now and then.The water needs to dissapear from this solution.
NaHCO3 will turn into: Na2CO3

Molecul cookin *sorta* with my toaster reflow oven *forced on consttly on in the micro controller. To make more degassing powder fo metal casing whn my 3D printer is here.Basicly im preparing in advance for when the printer is here

See you guys at Galacon!

http://www.galacon.eu/galacon-announces-more/
I will be coming with new shows as my older one are now absolete and scrapped. I will be coming with new character animation quality *as you might have seen the recent flash laser rig of rainbow dash* along with many other characters!.

The projectors are more powerfull with a lot of the parts being homemade with 3D printer and metal casting so it will be a lot more rigid and nice.

Better visible beams and who knows… maybe I’ll be getting out the planetarium laser lens as well!

Remember that unofficially there will also be:

i can play battlefield 4 premium in 2:30 hours (2 and a half). Be sure to add me on origin and battlelog!: LaserPon3_2

kevlar armor is nice for metal casting.
I also increased my metal casting furnace size.
It has forced air intake now so it can reach rediculous temperatures (2500°F)?? .
Biggest size I can cast/make atm is 23 square centimeter
*9 inch square
From the following materials: bronze, steel, aluminium, iron, gold (why would I do this latter??)
Sadly I have to watch my temperature and I can’t cast steel yet since my crucible doesn’t permit this yet. My main casting material will be aluminium anyway.

The only things that have to be done is some very little polishing and cutting off the sticking out metal that comes from the casting pouring hole that’s it :)

I made my own flux and degassing materials so I can remove impurities from scrap metal.

If you want to learn as well: backyardmetalcasting.com
Please cast responsibly.. I’m not responsible for your safety.

ahahaha fucking hell.

Why has nobody decided to remake a LivingTombstone song with just using skrillex spliced samples?

The package is finally progressing ! :Dit took a while before the package was send off through priority express post.
*3d printer*

bought 2 joysticks 2nd hand for fiddling around with realtime facial control capture of animatronics or 3D whatevs :3 if not they will still come in handy for other realtime applications.

The best would be a hand puppet with a variable potmeter for the mouth or so but for now this will do :)

With these, you could make a giant lazer puppet like the wizard of OZ’s thingy. All you need now is an amplifier and filter for your voice, maybe a couple of fog machines… o:

I already have a big stage haze machine I do not need a couple of fog machine. laser puppeteering is done from within 3ds max and requires an incredibly optimized rig and should be done with a motion capture suit *which is midi*  and with nothing else.No this is just for recording movement of one or 2 specific parts.
