I am up bright and early to get ready to head out with Crisp and his buddy Jason to Bronycon at the Meadowslands Exposition Center in NJ, along with the other 4022 people who have registered for it.

This is a convention (similar to the ones held for Star Trek or Doctor Who) for fans of the animated TV show” My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic“, which, although it is a kids show has become very popular with kids of Crispy’s age and above-

The show has been critically praised for its humor and moral outlook. Despite the target demographic of young girls, Friendship Is Magic has gained a large following of older viewers, predominately teenagers and young adults, largely male, who call themselves “bronies“. Reasons for this unintended appreciation include Faust and her team’s creative writing and characterization, the expressive Flash-based
animation style, themes that older audiences can appreciate, and a
reciprocal relationship between Hasbro, the creators, and the fans.
Elements of the show have become part of the remix culture and have formed the basis for a variety of Internet memes.

Crisp’s cousin Matt turned him onto this show, and of course is going to the con too.

This should prove to be an interesting day, watch this space…
