That's right, everyone: me! Originally I had sort of left the fanbase for the show because I felt that I became too attached, as it were. We have all felt that at one time or another... right? It's not just me, is it?
Anyway, join me this spring with Crafty Reacts to My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic Season 5 Premier! It should be a blast... you know... when we actually get the episode. I have made a resolution to myself that I will record a blind reaction to each episode of Season 5. If I don't record an episode on time, I will give a valid explanation.
That's all for now, so... Bye! :D

Earlier today, someone (the name of said person will remain anonymous) e-mailed me a private link to the newest rendition of the film Annie. This film is set to be released to cinemas on the 19th of December this year. Some already-known people who helped produce this film are Will Smith and Jay-Z (Jay-Z actually wrote a song called "Hard Knock Life" with the same lyrics as "Hard Knock Life" from the original Annie film). The film stars Jamie Foxx as Will Stacks and Quvenzhané Wallis as Annie. The twist on this version of the film is that, instead of having a red-headed Annie, the audience gets to see a young, African-American Annie.
Will Stacks is attempting to run for Mayor of New York City, while Annie lives in an orphanage with a cruel, alcoholic boss. One day, Stacks ends up accidentally saving Annie from being hit by a moving bus. Stacks' VP, Grace, advises him to take Annie in for a little while to boost up his election points. During that time, the two of them grow close to each other. On the other hand, Grace and Annie also get along very well. Grace admits to Annie that she has a crush on Stacks. Annie has a secret of her own: She is unable to read or write. She can only sign her name, and according to her, "that's the only thing you need to be able to do." It is during this time that Stacks speaks to Grace about permanently adopting Annie. A plan is devised and a fake mother and father "reclaim" Annie as their own. Stacks then makes the decision to get her back. After Stacks, Grace, and the NYPD successfully track down the fake parents, Stacks tells the news stations in a report that he is "stepping down [from the election] to take care of more important things" (a.k.a family). Stacks asks Grace out to dinner, and then picks up Annie. Stacks and Grace adopt Annie, and that's the film in a nutshell.
In my personal opinion, I'm positive that the general audience will love this film. I'm not the one to cry in a film, but I started crying when Stacks sang about losing Annie. I felt as if the emotional bond between Stacks and Annie became deeper as the film progressed. Another thing I loved is the character development of Ms. Hannigan in the duration of the film. At first, I hated her character, but now, I understand a bit more of why Ms. Hannigan turned out to be who she was at the beginning of the film. In closing, I have to give the writers, directors, actors and actresses, and producers an A+ on this film.

I have to admit something. I'm not around much anymore. That's a given. There are two main reasons I'm not around anymore:
Crafty's Modpack is a custom modpack compiled together by myself, Crafty. It contains just under fifty different mods; the main mods being IndustrialCraft 2, BuildCraft, Carpenter's Blocks, Tinker's Construct, and more! The first episode of "Crafty's Adventures in Technic" will air Wednesday September 3, 2014 at 7:00pm EST. This is a step-by-step guide on how to add this pack to your Technic Launcher!
1. Open The Launcher
When you open the launcher, you should see all the different packs to the left side of the screen. Scroll to the screen on the left that looks like a plus (+) symbol
2. Select "Add New Pack"
Once you select the "Add New Pack" option, a new window will come up and it asks you for a URL to a specific pack. The URL for "Crafty's Modpack" is http://www.technicpack.net/api/modpack/mids-farmpack. Copy and paste that into the text box.
3. Press "Add Modpack" and then press "play"
Let's just say that the "Add Modpack" button is like the "Ok" button. You press the button, then press the "Play" button on your launcher. The pack will download and then you will be able to play Crafty's Modpack!
4. Download the PureBDCraft for Crafty's Modpack (Optional)
If you would like the texture pack that I will be using for the series, you can download the pack HERE.
THIS IS A DEVELOPING STORY. This afternoon, Hasbro uploaded the third sneak peek to their YouTube channel. I couldn't really find a main purpose to this sneak peek other than establishing more character development to Sunset Shimmer.
Personally, I like the part with Flash Sentry walking into the scene asking for Twilight. It's like M.A. Larson wants to force FlashLight into existence (I could hope...).
SPOILERS AHEAD. This afternoon, Hasbro uploaded the second sneak peak to their YouTube channel. The main concept of this clip is conveying that people still don't accept the new Sunset Shimmer because Twilight and the others made her nice. There's a lot of aggression towards Sunset in this clip where Sunset is trying to be a nice person.
Personally, I really like this clip because it does show character development on Sunset. In my honest opinion, Sunset was a pretty bland character in the beginning of EQG 1. Hopefully Hasbro can persuade me to think otherwise when Rainbow Rocks is released to the public.
YOU HEARD IT HERE! I'm currently sitting in my room at the Hyatt Regency in Baltimore, MD. It's the second night of the three day event and I'm exhausted. I'd love to be editing my BronyCon 2014 vlogs, but my Chromebook isn't able to edit/import videos from the iPhone. The videos, however, will be uploaded as soon as I return to my house in Massachusetts.
I'm gonna recap my first day at the convention for you guys:
Today was even better for me:
Tomorrow is the final day of the convention. I plan to be at the convention bright and early. I hope tomorrow will be as awesome and amazing as these last few days! It will be sad to go home though. I really like this convention and I don't want to go. :(
Honestly I have not been following along much with A Brony Tale but now seeing that the movie is available to preorder HERE, I'm considering following along with the news now. I will keep you up to date on the latest info on the movie. ~Dan
If you navigate to the brand new iOS 8 page on the Apple website, you will find some amazing things!
Apple unveiled the latest operating system, iOS 8, at the World Wide Developer's Conference.
"iOS 8 is the biggest iOS release ever — for developers and everyone else. But that wasn't the goal. We simply set out to create the most natural experience. Each enhancement has a purpose. Every new feature deserves to be a new feature. Each function is more considered, each next step is more eﬃcient. It all adds up to an even better experience — one that is pleasantly surprising at ﬁrst and becomes utterly indispensable before you know it." -Apple's iOS 8 page
Everyone is becoming excited for the launch of iOS 8 coming this September.
Not a lot of features have been confirmed by Apple as of yet, but if you navigate to the iOS portion of Apple's website, you can see the majority of the features.
I recently got my hands on iOS 8 for a brief amount of time (before my phone said no to me). I personally like this keyboard. However it is becoming similar to the Android's keyboards...
I will report to the viewers as soon as we get more information about the new iOS features.
"Twilight's Kingdom" Summed up in a couple of paragraphs:
The opening scene of this episode starts out in the Crystal Empire, with Spike talking about the season 3 opening episode. Rainbow Dash makes a witty remark, and then Rarity counters that remark.
Just your average person who posts about anything pony related and sometimes things about magical blue boxes.
