@MEDdMI - Me and my teacher both had box turtles. The teach did animal rescue work, so two of her turtles were actually deformed and couldn't be released (one's shell was too large and the other's too small), so they ended up being class pets.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (23 May 2017 - 02:12 PM)

They had regular flat, cereal bowl-type molding at the bottom, so it wasn't much an issue that I can recall.

@  OrionPax44 : (23 May 2017 - 02:10 PM)

How tough is it to clean out those bowls. I'd imagine the nooks and crannies from their spines are tough areas.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (23 May 2017 - 01:47 PM)

I had two of those bowls, Michelangelo and Donatello

@  MEDdMI : (23 May 2017 - 01:46 PM)

Nice. What kind of turtles?

@  Noideaforaname : (23 May 2017 - 01:10 PM)

I had that turtle bowl too. Never did the obvious 'pretend to be Shredder and dine on turtle soup'... but that's because I had a bunch of pet turtles plus I frequently pet-sat a teacher's trio.

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 May 2017 - 12:36 PM)

You ate out of a Ninja Turtle? Kinky.

@  NightViper : (23 May 2017 - 12:33 PM)

My bowl didn't just have a picture of a Ninja Turtle, it WAS a Ninja Turtle. And came with a box of Cookie Crisp that I didn't eat.

@  Foffy : (23 May 2017 - 12:31 PM)

My favorite dish is this bowl I had as a kid that had a picture of a Ninja Turtle on it.

@  Robowang : (23 May 2017 - 10:32 AM)

mmm. That's my favorite dish.

@  Bass X0 : (23 May 2017 - 10:06 AM)

@  MEDdMI : (23 May 2017 - 06:51 AM)

everything sounds dirty

@  NotVeryKnightly : (23 May 2017 - 06:49 AM)

why does this sound dirty

@  Bass X0 : (23 May 2017 - 06:05 AM)

Psh. I'm still waiting for Ranma Whole.

@  unluckiness : (23 May 2017 - 05:08 AM)

I'll wait for the sequel series Dragon Whole.

@  Maruten : (23 May 2017 - 04:26 AM)

Can't believe the Dragon Half manga is finally being translated this year.

@  Bass X0 : (23 May 2017 - 03:22 AM)

DRAGON HALF!

@  MEDdMI : (22 May 2017 - 09:00 PM)

Xellos...? *looks at avatar pic* speaking of old anime... DRAGON SLAVE!!!

@  Xellos : (22 May 2017 - 08:56 PM)

Yeah, Tylor is awesome. One of the few series (Tylor and Escaflowne) I watched multiple times subtitled. On VHS even. Own two sets of each on DVD (or BD in 2nd Escaflowne's case). Original Tylor DVD and the remastered DVD, and both sets of dubs for Escaflowne (not counting the aborted Saturday morning edit, though I did tape that as it aired).

@  Steevy Maximus : (22 May 2017 - 08:28 PM)

Man, I'm so sad I missed so much of the mid-90s anime. The Irresponsible Captain Tylor is SO MUCH FUN!

@  Paladin : (22 May 2017 - 11:43 AM)

where's GALVATRON in MP form dammit?! he didn't even get in for the anniversary year...

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 May 2017 - 11:35 AM)

I'm still waiting on the rest of the Dinobots.

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 11:24 AM)

The Decepticon MP cassettes are probably my favorite MP figures so far. Fantastic little dudes.

@  Bass X0 : (22 May 2017 - 11:23 AM)

I want a Masterpiece Blaster if only because I'm fond of the Masterpiece cassettes and want Takara to make more. They should also do Slugfest and Overkill since they were in the cartoon too, even if it was only very briefly.

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 11:21 AM)

I just want the Chip figure. The only Autobot cars I have or want are G2 Sideswipe and Hot Rod.

@  Paladin : (22 May 2017 - 11:14 AM)

another Autobot car. "yaaaaaay."

@  Benbot : (22 May 2017 - 11:02 AM)

I haven't been this excited about a new MP since the Datsuns! He looks amazing

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 11:01 AM)

I love the little human figures with the MP line. Is it just young Spike, Future Spike, and Daniel so far?

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 11:00 AM)

And it comes with Chip Chase! I will order just for that! Holy crap!

@  Bass X0 : (22 May 2017 - 10:55 AM)

Whoo! Masterpiece Sunstreaker!

@  Anonymous X : (22 May 2017 - 10:40 AM)

Less said about the Sinclair Microdrive, the better...

@  Anonymous X : (22 May 2017 - 10:23 AM)

I had two ZX Spectrum games on cartridge. Played 'em loads as it beat having to wait ten minutes for unreliable tape loading...

@  Rycochet : (22 May 2017 - 09:25 AM)

Super Bootspork!

@  Bass X0 : (22 May 2017 - 08:45 AM)

I remember doing the same for my ZX Spectrum.

@  DeltaSeeker : (22 May 2017 - 08:40 AM)

I remember loading games on my Vic20 from an audio tape.

@  Paladin : (22 May 2017 - 08:37 AM)

anyone remember "Chex Quest?"

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 07:13 AM)

I never played those. I had, like, two-color bootleg files of Donkey Kong and stuff like that with 50 games on a disk.

@  MEDdMI : (22 May 2017 - 07:11 AM)

not pure text games, but you still had to use text input to do stuff. "PICK UP flask", etc

@  MEDdMI : (22 May 2017 - 07:05 AM)

I think those were the old King's Quest/Space Quest ones

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 07:02 AM)

I remember floppy disk games! Never gamed enough to own one that was more than a disk, though.

@  MEDdMI : (22 May 2017 - 07:01 AM)

I remember booting things from DOS, and games that were like 10 floppy disks big.

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 06:57 AM)

*dies*

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 06:57 AM)

Oh man, the days of Realplayer and AIM and man, I can't believe how long ago that was.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 May 2017 - 01:00 AM)

ugh, RealMedia was pretty awful. RealPlayer was so bloated and buggy, I tried to avoid it

@  siccoyote : (22 May 2017 - 12:17 AM)

I remember downloading Realmedia episodes of Beast Wars Season 3, days after they were shown in Americ, but the quality was terrible and the guy who did it wasted half of a stereo audio track because he recorded it in mono. Took many hours to download

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 May 2017 - 09:55 PM)

Yeah, I remember those days. I had a bunch of Quicktime clips from Beasties/Beast Wars and Reboot, most of which I had to leave the computer on overnight to get, lol

@  Steevy Maximus : (21 May 2017 - 09:49 PM)

I remember when it took 3 hours to download a 240p, 2.5 minute movie trailer

@  MEDdMI : (21 May 2017 - 09:02 PM)

and there weren't any rocks yet, they were all space dust

@  MEDdMI : (21 May 2017 - 09:02 PM)

I remember when there was no internet

@  Telly : (21 May 2017 - 08:55 PM)

dont remember what it was called, but i had an internet answering machine software back in the day. turn it on when i was online and i wouldnt miss a call. would leave it off if i didnt want to be bothered though lol

I think I'm loosing interest in Ponies. They aren't all consuming like they once were. I don't know if it's because I'm not on here every day talking about them, and when I do log on there's such a backlog that I don't even bother reading it. Or maybe it's simply run it's course. It's been a full year now that I've been following this show, and it turned from "This is amazing!" to "Okay, that was fine." I don't know.

I mean that fact that I've got waves 1 and 2 of Blind Bags on my desk below a MLP calender says something. But not even Fluttershy gives the the joy she used to.

Thoughts?

It's quite possible that you're simply burned out from it. Over indulging or obsessing can do that. Relax from it, take a few weeks and watch an ep or two of the new stuff once the season ends. If you're still "blah" on it, then it might have just been a fad.

And, if you are truly done with it, try to keep some of the morality in your heart and mind. You don't need to be a brony to try to make the world a better place.

Hey, if you're not interested anymore, you're not interested anymore, none of us will hold it against you, or at least none of us should.

Wonko's advice is good stuff, so keep that in mind.

This season is missing something from that last season one, that little bit of magic that made it perfect. But, I had this problem before, go watch a horror movie marathon, Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th, Hellraiser, Child's Play, Puppet Master, Halloween. Then watch an episode of FiM, it will rekindle your love for it! =D

Scaling obsession back to the point where it's a regular interest among others?

Excellent.

Yeah, I'm in a similiar boat. I still faithfully watch the show each week and enjoy it immensely, still collect the toys, and still peruse this subforum or ED here and there, but I'm not spending several hours every night looking at every PMV and reading fiction and making gifs and looking at fanart. It's a natural winding down.

I wouldn't say I'm losing interest, just that I'm not spending all my time on them.

I don't so much give up on fandoms as get distracted from them by the next shiny to come along. The more specific the fandom, the better it holds my interest, but the more likely it is to cease getting new material (see, for instance, my War Planets or Mystic Knights of Tir na Nog pages). I'm more distractable from huge sprawling fandoms (like Trek or kaiju) because they're too big to really get into in depth, so my roots are shallower. But when it's possible to follow pretty much all of the official stuff and a big chunk of the fan stuff, I find it easier to latch on.

I figure ponies will be one of those things I stay interested in as long as they keep making FiM, at which point I may drift off if G5 doesn't immediately grab me. In many ways, Transformers are an oddity in my fan behavior because it has changed radically many times and still held my interest. (Superhero comics, being something from before I was solidly "fannish", are also an exception.)

In any case, I rarely burn out on any fandom. They wither from the other side first, or I was never that into it to begin with.

I'm still enjoying the show. Of course, I just watch the episodes. I don't follow any fan sites, fan art, message board discussions or anything (barring this detour into the Allsparkle). So there's no burnout.

I still watch every episode as soon as I can find it, but I don't spend all of my spare time sketching ponies anymore, and I've never really delved much deeper into the fandom than these boards--you guys and gals are a great filter, by the way, and I love you all--so while the show no longer devours my life in great gulps, it still maintains a fairly strong hold on me. And I have to say, quite a bit of my own petty/childish/profane/hateful/intolerant attitudes and behaviors have been significantly improved or even completely abolished since I started watching the show and coming here regularly. This show made me a better person, and I will always remember and cherish it dearly for that, and for all of you. Whether any of you leave or not, I want you all to know that you are some of the best people I have ever had the pleasure of knowing.

All of the gratitude, dear friends. All of the gratitude.
FREE CUSTOM PONIES!!
