my little pony: friendship is magic/star wars

I’ve been sick for the last week so not much to report on my end, but here’s a post from the lovely ladies at I wanted to share. (Yes, I watch MLP: FIM and love it. You should too.)

Guys, I swear I’m not giving up until every single one of you watches the new MLP series, “Friendship is Magic”. In this season’s premiere (which aired this last Saturday on the Hub Network), the end scene (not to give away spoilers or anything) closely parodies an iconic scene from Star Wars.

Come on. HOW can this be a show for little girls?

No, really though. You should totally watch this show, it’s all on YouTube so no excuses! I’ll be back soon with a real update. :) *coughs* *sniffs*

back to the future

I’ve yet to watch any of these movies (it’s on my bucket list!) but…holy cow. These look AMAZING.

One of my favorite blogs, Zaxy, posted this and I wanted to help spread the word!

Britt, Kristina, and I are pleased to announce that we will be participating in Extra Life again this year!

Extra Life is a 24 hour video game marathon to raise money for children’s hospitals.

Check out more info here! It takes place on October 15th, and like last year, we’ll be on Ustream the whole time so you can check up on us. Take a look at the adventures that came of it last year. Highlights included special guests, a fire alarm, and a dancing penguin.

Want to join our team and help raise money for kids by gaming? Join here! If you’re not able to play along but can donate, you’re welcome to do so as well.

We can’t wait to do this again and we’re hoping to make it even bigger and more awesome than last year. Who knows, if we’re lucky we may have TWO fire alarms go off!

Let me know if you’re planning on participating! I’m definitely gonna round up some friends and see if they’re interested. :)


I wanted to show a few of my favorite blogs some love. :)
