Friendship Report: Clown?


Dear Readers,

Although I found the latest episode quite entertaining, I found the message to be a bit unclear. I think it was supposed to be something about blessings in disguise, but that didn't sit right with me. To me the message seemed more along the lines of "Fake it 'til you make it." Yes, I did get that line from Fallout 3.

Friendship Report: Goodbyes


Dear Readers,

In the last episode of My Little Pony, poor Rainbow Dash was struggling to say goodbye to her adorable pet tortoise: Tank. We all know how hard some goodbyes can be, even if you're going to see whoever it is the next day. Sometimes you just don't want people to leave you, or you don't want to leave them. Either way, this theme brought on an episode filled with references and hilarity.

BronyScot Announces 2015 Date and Location!


Sit back, put on your See You Jimmy Hat and crack open a fresh can of Irn Bru, we’ve got a convention to announce!

BronyScot will be returning to Edinburgh’s Grosvenor Hilton Hotel on Saturday 21 November 2015.

The BronyScot Team have been working hard to make sure 2015 is better than ever! We will have more space, with every nook booked and a team brimming with original ideas.

BronyScot, as ever, is all about the fandom. 2015 will see the return of some of our favourite performers from 2014 - with some surprises thrown in!

We’re able to announce the return of Scandinavia's top export Injustrial, the voice-shifting John Willow and unmistakable artwork from Mad Munchkin and Twigileia. If that didn’t satisfy you, we can throw in the broad-ranging skills of Sketchy Sounds and street beat icon One Wing Pegasus.

If that raft load of talent wasn’t enough, The BronyScot team can announce the return of Rock Nessie. We are putting the finishing touches on our exact plans with the event, but we will let you know as soon as these are firmed up.

Tickets are on sale soon so get ready to saddle up and hit the Highlands.


We’re making sure our new website is perfect. Check back during the week when it’ll be ready and full of everything you’ll need to know about the convention. Found at www.brony.scot or www.bronyscot.org.uk

You can also follow us on twitter @BronyScot or like us at Facebook.com/bronyscot

Friendship Report: Worries


Dear Readers,

In the last episode of My Little Pony, poor Apple Bloom was worrying about what would happen if she got a cutie mark she didn't like. I for one wasn't much for that episode, but it did have it's moments nonetheless. I think she shouldn't have woken up from the first dream and instead actually fight to get her pest pony cutie mark back in order to save Equestria (or at least Ponyville). But that wasn't the case, and the message was different.

Friendship Report: Not All Houses Are Homes


Dear Readers,

In the latest episode of My Little Pony, we had Princess Twilight avoiding her home because it didn't feel like a home. Anyone else been there? I have, thankfully I was able to solve that problem about 5 years ago. Admittedly, my solution wasn't really the best, but it worked for me. So here's a little story about a young lad who moved to Birmingham, a young lad that totally wasn't me.

Friendship Report: Cutie Marks


Dear Readers,

I hope everyone has enjoyed the season premiere, I sure did. It featured a new song, which I loved, some hilarious new characters, and a message which really spoke to me. Unfortunately, that message will just bring about a large rant from me, purely because of my views on the subject. Equality to me is a big taboo.

Friendship Report: Happy Easter and Season 5


Dear Readers,

As a lot of you know, today is Good Friday, so Happy Easter all those who celebrate it. Slightly more importantly, at least for me, tomorrow is when then next season of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic begins. This may bring a slight change to my Friendship Reports, as I plan on taking the lessons learned at the end of the episodes, and trying to relate them to my life. That is of course, if the episodes continue to have a little Friendship report at the end of them.

Friendship Report: Impulse Buys


Dear Readers,

Have you ever done something by impulse that turned out to be a much better idea than you had originally expected? I have,in fact it was a recent impulse buy of mine that turned out to be a very good idea. I had been watching a lot of videos on YouTube from a user called Rob Scallon, and he likes to play 8-string guitar, and so I decided to buy my own 8-string.

Friendship Report: Spring is Here!


Dear Readers,

So last Sunday I was fortunate enough to catch Papa Roach perform at the Manchester Academy along with Coldrain, who I had never heard of, and also The One Hundred, who I had also never heard of. I didn't originally know about the two opening acts, I just thought it was going to be a Papa Roach gig, but nobody tells me anything. I'm not complaining, it meant there was more Nu Metal for me to bounce around to.

Friendship Report: The DJ


Dear Readers,

I'm quite happy to say that I was fortunate enough to find two Rush albums on half price at HMV earlier, and so instead of only buying one like I intended, I bought both of them. However, I'm not happy to say that I was in a night club last night that featured the worst DJ imaginable, she didn't know how to equalize, and she had no clue what she was supposed to be playing.

Friendship Report: Addictions


Dear Readers,

For some strange reason I thought it would be a good idea to resubscribe to World of Warcraft, and now I've rekindled that old addiction of mine. So before I plunge myself back into the magical world of Azeroth, I thought I'd better get a quick post up, especially since I didn't leave myself enough time to post yesterday.

Friendship Report: Too Much Stuff


Dear Readers,

I may not live in the cleanest of houses, and that doesn't really bother me. I don't exactly live in a cluttered house either, I simply just have too much stuff in my room, and not much space. The sad part is I've cut down on clutter by approximately 60% and I still have too much. I find it amazing, how could I live with all that junk in my room? So I want to talk about stuff in the literal sense for a change.

Friendship Report: The Interview and some Lovey Dovey Stuff!


Dear Readers,

As I believe I mentioned in my post last week, I had my interview for the army today. It was the first job interview I have ever done, and as one can expect, I was dreading it. Thankfully it all went quite well, and my terror quickly dispersed once the interview actually started. On the other side tomorrow is Hearts and Hooves Day!
