I don't think this person knows what 'trolling' actually is.
Bort
He doesn't even describe the picture right -- it's not a tail whipping around. Having done too much investigation on this, I've discovered that at issue is where Discord's wings attach to his back, and it just so happens the Deviant artist managed to make it look all dongtastic.

Five stars for Nicole de Boer. Ezri Dax is way underrated.

infinite zest
Yeah really. He made a joke at somebody's art's expense, at a convention that wasn't even about that. I was bored one day waiting for my ex to get off work and noticed that Neil Stephenson was doing a book signing and I just so happened to have Cryptonomicon with me and his publicist said that he'd only sign Anathem, which was the new book at the time, which meant I'd have to buy a copy and I was pretty broke. So I was like "OK" and started to leave when the person told me to come back. He signed it as Hiro Protagonist because I brought the wrong book to a fucking book signing. That's not trolling, that's being a nice guy. Q seems like a great guy too.

Xenocide
I like that Q and Ezri are on a first-name basis with each other even though they never appeared in an episode together. I bet all the Star Trek actors are like a little chummy brotherhood, all hanging out at cons, swapping stories and whatnot. Mainly though they get together to mock and shun the cast of Enterprise. Nothing can undo what they've done!

Riker, who was too busy playing Trombone with Phish was unavailable for comment but will send a 35 minute reply via skype.

It's good-natured trolling, what the ancient peoples of the Before-Time called "ball busting".

You can see the actual picture @ 3:40 , and yes, Discord is clearly sporting a big blue wingboner. I have no clue why the narrator even mentions the tail, as the tail has nothing to do with it.

Xenocide
Given that it's brony art we're talking about, that was probably like the 30th cartoon penis John signed that day.
Bort
I imagine John isn't ashamed of doing a voice in a cartoon, but I wouldn't be surprised if he's ashamed of some of the fandom.

When John de Lancie is making fun of the dong-wings on the picture you ask him to sign, take it as a learning experience.

EvilHomer
Mr de Lancie mentions clopping during his musical number "Let's Go and Meet the Bronies", but he declined to give his opinion on the matter. I've always imagined that John de Lancie is a bit like Brent Spiner, i.e. a huge pervert, albeit a classier, more restrained one than his robotic pal. John's delightfully impish and irreverent behavior here lends support to my hypothesis. You don't show off a dong-wing to everyone at the convention if you're offended or utterly repulsed. I imagine, for example, that had this brony dork attempted to get Tara Strong to sign his dong-wings, she would have slapped him and called security.

I doubt very much that John's a clopper, but he does seem like an adventurous sort.

EvilHomer
Also, that's not what Discord's penis looks like. I realize that this may sound pedantic, but believe me, bronies get into fights over this on a semi-regular basis, and de Lancie, if he really was signing fan drawn Discord-dicks all day long, would be well aware of the controversy.

EvilHomer
Case in point: a quick search of the internet reveals the following conversation, which happened just this very morning (link may be work-safe with the default filters on, but assume NSFW)

Two things kill this for meÖ Discordís human dick, and the fact heís unreasonably muscular for his character design lol


TheGreatSako
Wwhhyyy the hairy balls?!


LightDark
well, is discord so he can transform his body into whatever he wants
but why the hairy balls? ;-;


Background Pony #618B
Discord looks like shit.
But Celestiaís ass man..


Eisenfell-
Human Penis and Hairy balls Pretty Much kills it..


Background Pony #CFA3
There is no reason to add hair to any ball


Background Pony #D5FC
Hairy balls is the best part of this image imo.
But I donít enjoy the style, subject matter, presentation, or anatomy.


Minus
Discord has such an akward body that I just never see it animated right. Fantasy did a good job here, the best he probably could have done given the character. Give him some credit! As for getting worse with time, I donít think so. His quality is a bit all over the place though.

And yeah them hairy balls are off-putting. And so is that 90 degree dick bend that SO MANY artists do for deepthroating. Iím not sure if these things bother me enough for a donvote or not.

And that's just ONE conversation about what Discord's penis looks like, the most active one, from today.

infinite zest
Dischord and Celestia weren't in a romantic relationship though, were they? Wasn't he just there to destroy the elements or something? I sort of assumed he was a homosexual and would probably go for a male pony.

EvilHomer
>> Dischord and Celestia weren't in a romantic relationship though, were they?


A romantic relationship has never been confirmed in canonical sources, no. However, Discord/Celestia is a very popular 'ship, as they are the two most powerful beings in Equestria, with starkly contrasting cosmic roles to play, and there's a huge amount of unexplored history between them, which naturally invites fan speculation. According to the official story, Discord was the original ruler of Equestria, possibly also its creator-God, until he was overthrown by Celestia and her younger sister, Luna. This connects Discord with Tiamat, Kronos, or Ymir, suggesting (to me) that there may have been a familial relationship between Discord and the two Princesses. Discord being their father (possibly uncle or grandfather) would fit the Tiamat trope, and would certainly explain why Celestia and Luna bear the title "princess", a term denoting royal parentage.

The other popular ship is Discoshy, which DOES have support in the show, being that Fluttershy is the closest thing to a friend that Discord has ever had. I prefer that one, mostly because Fluttershy is way cooler than Celestia.

infinite zest
Good to know! Like I've said before I don't really follow FiM, but Dischord just seemed like the Eggman to Celestia's Sonic.. or actually that makes sense since they can both communicate. Bowser and Mario's a better analogy. But now I'm curious about this.. I mean, enemies can become friends. I think Eggman and Sonic at least talk during the show, as does Razz.

TeenerTot
Hahaha! The picture had a penis-looking thing and a minor celebrity said something about it!! Classic!
Bort
I enjoyed it more than you, perhaps because I'm looking at it from de Lancie's perspective. From the description, it sounds like John de Lancie was at a Star Trek convention where he was being asked to sign a fan-created (fan wank?) piece of MLP artwork, and he quite possibly is not fond of Brony pervert bullshit. So this was his chance to push back just this once, in ways he couldn't at a MLP convention. Petty and childish, perhaps, but come on, pony dong.

... I mean, how do you NOT see the giant dong right there in the picture? And the fan didn't even know what it was. Hell, it would be more convincing if he said that Dr. Manhattan was standing just off-screen.

M-DEEM
You went to the cartoon pony club as a grown man and you're pretending to be embarrassed by a cartoon penis you're faking being unaware of. It took you almost five minutes to say this

TeenerTot
Perhaps I should be more clear:
This "celebrity" encounter story wasn't anything special (particularly to the "celebrity," I'll bet), and certainly wasn't worth being animated.

John DeLancie talked to me like we were normal people one time! Animate it!

That guy
I trolled John De Lancie once, and fairly effectively.

True fucking story.

That guy
...I'm a little afraid that nothing can live up to people's imagination filling in the details.

I'm imagining a hotel laundry service, an accidental fire, and Eyes Wide Shut.

That guy
He was one of my teachers at a repertory company where I studied in a 2-3 month intensive program. So we were in class with him like 6-10 hours a week. At this point I'd seen him on stage twice, and on ST:TNG. He was a good stage actor.

In class, he was an domineering egomaniac, and a pusher of the kind of classically bullshit acting theory that was arcane and rigid and based on his approval, and he had a captive audience. It was the kind of shit where the whole class was falling all over themselves to figure out what he meant, but he'd never lay out his acting theory in an intelligible way. So it was like "try something and hold your breath and hope for his approval". (It was basically "actor's intention/action" shit where he wouldn't say what was off limits, and it seemed like everything was).

I was like 21, and after having enough of bullshit teachers making themselves what the class was about from high school and college, I pretty much flipped my opinion on him from "I can't believe De Lancie is going to be my teacher!" to "What a motherfucking pseudo-intellectual tyrant!" in a day or two.

He gave us plenty of examples of his great performances on set (that the whole crew thought was amazing, naturally- because the crew gives a fuck... right?) and how he got to those intentions/performances by doing some (dumb) trick- the dumbest of which included subtly stroking his dick in his pants during a scene, or snorting coke before a scene, or remembering what it was like to be high on coke.

At the end of the course, I was rehearsing a scene in front of the class. I still didn't know what his fucking definitions of objective / intention / action were, and at this point I didn't care anymore. During a given beat in the scene, he stopped me and asked what I was doing (as in, what was I playing in the scene).
I said I was mocking the other character.
He said that's not a playable intention.
I said it was, because people mock people, as an intention in real life, in order to do a few basic things: make someone feel bad, or to make oneself feel better, or to (try to) change someone's mind, or to bring someone down in status/other people's eyes and oneself up, win arguments, basic anthropological shit
(and I'd already argued that I didn't believe that people are ALWAYS actually doing ONE thing at a time in life, as in "thou canst only have one subconscious/semi-conscious motivation". But no one in theater accepts this, so whatever...)

We'd had this argument before, so maybe he interrupted me somewhere in there, but basically I was asserting that my intention could be a word a 9-year old knows, and that I wasn't always forced to choose between 'FUCK' and 'KILL'.
(I'd also studied enough psychology/anthropology to know about the shift away from Freud is God, AND that fixating on our wild and wacky subconscious as a be-all, end-all in art was kind of dumb.)

-so he asks me again to pick again, and I pick mock and he says "You can't play 'mocking'. Go ahead play 'mocking'- it's impossible. I say ok. He says 'from the top'.

I say 'one sec', step off to the side of the stage, and pretend to snort a huge rail, and then another.
I do the scene the way he would do it, pretending to stroke my dick through my pocket the whole time.

There was plenty of stifled tittering from the class and he didn't let me finish the scene.

That guy
0% lies.

I wish I could say he was the worst acting teacher I ever had, but like 3 out of 4 acting teachers are in an epic race to the bottom with each other.

EvilHomer
Oh god, that's awesome!

Did he REALLY advocate stroking your dick through your pocket? Because if so, fuck it, that proves my earlier hypothesis {Xenocide OP 1, Reply 2}.

(ghost stars for you, sir)

That guy
My hand to fucking God.

EvilHomer
... do you, do you think he was doing that on the set of TNG?

Like right before talking to Patrick Stewart or Marina Sirtis?

Bort
That guy wins!

What would John de Lancie think of this master thespian?

Followup question:

http://www.poetv.com/video.php?vid=54256

At 0:32, why is his left arm a dong?

memedumpster
Well, I was close!

TeenerTot
See? That's a story worthy of animating.

That guy
EH I think it was for Thornbirds or something like that where he had a bit part. On ST:TNG, your guess is as good as mine.

Bort, I wish I could help.

Xenocide
But like...John De Lancie is basically known for two characters, and ALL THEY DO is act mockingly. Q never speaks to anyone in a tone that isn't at least a little mocking, it's his entire thing. Discord is a deliberate homage to Q and has most of his inflections and mannerisms. JDL has made a goddamn career out of "play mocking."

That incredibly typical lack of self-awareness from a d-list celebrity is how I know this story is completely genuine. Well done, That Guy!

That guy
Yeah, how did I forget that part?
It was dumbfounding.

Old_Zircon
"I'd already argued that I didn't believe that people are ALWAYS actually doing ONE thing at a time in life, as in "thou canst only have one subconscious/semi-conscious motivation". But no one in theater accepts this, so whatever..."


Reading that really gives me some new insight into why I find so many theater people insufferable. Thanks!

That guy
Yeah, it's like ham-fisted armchair psychology based on 100-year old academic psychology.

memedumpster
Only Q could make a brony ashamed of a picture of a cock. That's some omnipotence right there.
chumbucket
JDL gets a +1

I actually watched part of that "Brony" documentary De Lancie was involved with. There was this bit with a Brony's father was rather over the top.

"Uh, my dad is '"conservative". That's the word," the brony, who is a little fat shit, whines.

SMASH CUT to dad in the garage looking befuddled with old "Bush/Cheney" campaign sign behind him.

Later, John De Lancie arranged a meeting with some other Dad who's an actual Brony and thus followed some really contrived and pathetic Dr. Phil-level browbeating, made only more pathetic by the supposedly conservative dad just going along with the whole thing.
EvilHomer
You remember how in the 1960s and 70s, the Old Left got liquidated by the New, and any survivors who did not get on board with the new program were forced into exile amongst the conservatives?

Yeah, that process has already begun for you, BushHWW. History has left you behind.

You can't copyright word salad. That's a style, not a specific idea, and it's free to be copied - as proven by the outcome of the brony/Hasbro copyright dispute over the videogame, Fighting is Magic.
