Ride a Painted Pony PMV

It's been a busy few days.  The Marefriend put together a new review video which will be released tonight, I made a new episode review that will be released tomorrow, and I created that PMV I've been wanting to do for about a month now that I released last night.  Check it out below:

Corpulent Brony Anniversary

PARTY TIME!!!

Yesterday marked my one year anniversary as Corpulent Brony online and on YouTube.  It was on that fateful day a hasty and poorly thought out decision was made to record a video of myself promoting The Marefriend's Patreon account shirtless and to call myself Corpulent Brony.
I now have 1,050 subscribers, many of which I am very lucky to also call my friends, and I've created almost 100 videos.  I've had the privilege to meet so many awesome individuals and am very honored to have been afforded such an opportunity.

I obviously couldn't have made it this long with most of my sanity in tact if it weren't for all the help I've received along the way.  The number one pony upon which the bedrock of my humble success has been built is, of course, The Marefriend.  Many others have contributed, but to try and list them all here would be unfair as I would inevitably leave some out. 
So thank you everypony, and here's to another awesome year of pony!

Origins of Discord (He Is Not Starswirl) - A Corpulent Analysis

It's finally here: My Discord video!  A look at Discord and his origins, which are likely tied closely to the Tree of Harmony.

Discord Video Update

I recorded the live action parts of the video over the weekend, and I'm very happy with the way it turned out.  So happy, in fact, that I think I'm going to eschew the fully animated portions I had planned and just do the animation on top of the live-action video.  Most of that tedium was actually accomplished last night, leaving just some fancy After Effects editing that should take the thing to the next level followed by combining it with the introduction I have been working on for a while now.  I hope to have something rendered and released if not tonight then at some point tomorrow, with the latest being Thursday.  Not much time to celebrate, though, as immediately afterwards I must turn my attention to the Season 5 prediction video I'm planning to release the following week (and hope my predictions aren't proven true/false before I can even release the darn thing).  This is probably a good exercise in preparation for the new season, though!
Here's a quick and silly clip of me being facetious in a horse mask.  Enjoy.

The #HorseFamous Scale

People often wonder, "Am I #HorseFamous?"  Well, folks, I'm here with the answer to your pressing needs: A #HorseFamous scale!  It's a very simple function and can be represented algebraically as:
 F   =  log(S  )
  H          YT
Basically, #HorseFame (F) is equal to the (base 10) logarithm of the number of YouTube subscribers (S) somepony has, making the #HorseFamous scale logarithmic in nature (much like the Richter scale).
Of course, one of the most obvious faults of my scale is it takes only YouTube subscriber count into consideration; as a result, somepony like Dustykatt would score a paltry 4.3 while Antony C (well-known in the analysis community, but not as much outside) a 4.5.  So perhaps this function should be constrained to those bronies who are #HorseFamous on YouTube for now, until a more generalized equation can be derived.

Where Do I Fall?

Well, now that ONE THOUSAND awesome people have joined the Corpulent Cartel and subscribed to my channel, I officially rate a 3.0 on the #HorseFamous scale.  Since it is logarithmic, I am still far from people like Minty Root (4.2), JHaller (5.2), or Living Tombstone (5.9).  Still, it's something, I guess, though not really...because, at the end of the day, being #HorseFamous or not really doesn't amount to a hill of apples.
But what does matter is all of you and how grateful I am to you awesome people for endorsing my shenanigans seasoned with occasional bursts of analysis.  I am deeply humbled and honored to have earned each of your subscriptions.


For fun, I created a chart showing where some of the people on my subscription list fall on this silly little scale.  Hope you enjoy!
