Johnathan, myself, and others have discussed having a meetup centered on watching YouTube Poops--and now that I have a space, I thought, why not host it? We can watch YTPs (especially pony-related ones), abridged series, and other random funny videos!


I've got a laptop, VGA cable, and nice-sized TV, so all we need now is attendees!


Note: The place is technically not mine, as I rent a room, but my housemate is fine with parties. He likes MLP but not enough to go to meetups with me. :)




Also note: We have two cats, so just FYI if you're allergic.



Another note: While I'm not within walking distance of a Metro stop, there is usually a good amount of parking spaces in my neighborhood (you can park in the ones that don't say "Reserved"). Also, I'd be willing to make Metro runs to Shady Grove if people want to come but can't drive.

    Let me know if this doesn't work. Also, there were some videos on there we didn't watch because they dragged on a bit, but they're still funny.

    I have never heard of YouTube poop videos till this Meetup. So since then I have been watching a lot of YouTube Poop videos.

      Has it made you so hungry that you could eat an Octorok?

      4 · October 27, 2013

  • Sean C.

    Can you release a playlist of the YTP's you watched?

    2 · October 27, 2013

  • Josh T.

    Videos were hilariously entertaining, but I went in under the impression that they would mostly be pony fanvids and there were actually only a few.

    1 · October 27, 2013

  • Johnathan I. T.

    I wished I could of stayed longer but it was tons of fun!! Thanks ya for making it a really good time! We gotta do another one of these meetups!

    The Youtube Poop is back in my head!

  • Jaye V.

    Hmmm... You guys and your Youtube poop stuff... MY BRAIN IS MUSH! I had fun, though!

    Stopping to pick up the food, then heading that way. Should be there in 30-50 minutes

    October 26, 2013

  • Josh T.

    Morning event was canceled. Alternate transportation plan means I'll be late. I estimate around 1pm.

    October 26, 2013

  • Canaan W.

    Kate. I'm gonna be late to Shady Grove D:, do you have a number I can call you on?

    October 26, 2013

  • Geoffrey A.

    I've fallen ill and cannot make it. I thought I might improve, but alas, I have only gotten worse. I'll hopefully catch this next time.
    (I've changed the RSVP to give whomever is next on the waitlist some notice)

    October 25, 2013

  • Johnathan I. T.

    I'll bring some soda for the meetup on Saturday! Want me to bring over some cups too?

    October 22, 2013

    • Kate M.

      I believe we have cups, but I'll check tonight and let you know. Thanks!

      October 23, 2013

    • Kate M.

      We do have cups, so no need to bring them!

      October 25, 2013

  • Alex P.

    I am very sorry, but I have to change my reservation to "no". There has been a death in my family, and I will be in Michigan attending a funeral. I understand you're planning a second one; I hope to be there for the second one, as this is very much my sort of event.

    October 24, 2013

    • Kate M.

      My condolences. I'm sure we will have another one so hope to see you then!

      October 25, 2013

  • Josh T.

    Our attendance is down to 19, should we move up the last waitlisted person? Also, my morning event was cancelled, so now I have to rework my transportation plan. Would any drivers be willing to do a one-way rideshare from Baltimare County Saturday morning?

    October 24, 2013

    • Max S.

      Waitlists are automatic

      October 24, 2013

  • George F.

    So I have to decline this trip because my friend's birthday is on Saturday and he wanted to celebrate and invited. Next time ill join :) Have Fun!!!

    October 24, 2013

  • Canaan W.

    Hey! I added some things to the foodshare, but I wanna make sure, is there a way to get pizza and wings around your way?
    Or should I do that before I head up there?

    October 23, 2013

    • Mark E.

      There's a Ledo Pizza nearby.

      October 23, 2013

    • Kate M.

      There is? I wasn't aware of it. There is a WingStop that you can pretty much walk to.

  • Bass Hooves (Chase G.

    how long is the meetup going until

    October 23, 2013

    • Kate M.

      Right now we have ~5 hours of video, but we may not watch it all (or we may watch more), so it's up in the air. I don't have space for sleepovers, though, so it won't be an overnight thing.

      October 23, 2013

  • Sam P.

    That foodshare sheet is confusing, but I think I added my name correctly. Anyway, I'm bringing a few party trays (Meat/Crackers/Cheese, vegetable tray, etc.)
    I'm also driving from Rockville, which is fairly close but I can detour a little if needed.

    October 22, 2013

    • Kate M.

      Thanks for volunteering!

      October 23, 2013

  • Josh T.

    I might be a few minutes late. I have a thing in Olney in the morning. Also, I don't need a carpool for this one!

    October 18, 2013

    • Josh T.

      Update: I'll definitely be late. I should arrive between 12:30 and 1. However, I will absolutely be there! Also, I plan to make my art available but I won't be pushing it. I'll make an announcement when I take out my paper but after that it's up to you guys to come to me if you want a free sketch. One of my favorite things to do at these meetups is share my art so I try to offer some every time if possible.

      October 21, 2013

    • Kate M.

      No worries!

      October 22, 2013

  • George F.

    Because I'm an idiot and thought the meetup was Saturday and Kate is an awesome Kat im still coming over!! Late but still coming!

    October 21, 2013

    • George F.

      Reread it...I was hanging out with Kate and Jay on Saturday and I thought that the meetup was scheduled for Saturday 10/19/13 and I put no, but I already talked to Kate and even tho I'm on the waitlist ill still going because I derped and she was okay with it

      October 22, 2013

    • Kate M.

      I wish I could let everyone in! I just don't think I have the space. But yeah, George was one of the people who came up with the meetup idea (along with Johnathan and me), so I said he should come.

    Ah, got scheduled work. Duty calls I suppose.

    Can i bring food?

    October 18, 2013

  • Kate M.

    Note to those who can't go/are waitlisted: I'm hoping to have one of these again, whether it be hosted by me or someone else at another location. I know there's interest. And after the event, I'll provide a link to the playlist so you can see all the videos I compiled (and will add any others we watch as well)!

    October 17, 2013

  • Rodrigo O.

    Work. That is all. I'll come around DC eventually, but this day won't be it. :(

    October 16, 2013

  • Torch(Nathan K.

    Sadly, I cannot make it. Personal stuff has come up at the last minute. Sorry.

    October 13, 2013

  • JustinG

    Oi, one I can actually make and it's booked already. Maybe next time. Have fun all!

    October 12, 2013

  • Kate M.

    Added links to a rideshare and foodshare spreadsheet. Less than a month to go!

    1 · September 29, 2013

  • Mark E.

    On the wait list... I'll be moving right next to the Montgomery Village Center this weekend :D

    September 28, 2013

    • Kate M.

      Sweet, more bronies near me!

      September 28, 2013

  • Kate M.

    I have changed the attendance limit to 20. I think we will be able to fit, but it will be a little tight. Most of us will be sitting on the floor in front of the TV, as I have two couches and only a few standalone chairs. I'll provide blankets/things to sit on if need be.

    My past experience with meetups has been that people do back out due to unforeseen circumstances as the event gets closer, and there are always people who sign up but don't show up. I urge whoever is signed up to change your RSVP if you can't come so that we can allow those on the waitlist to attend. If the waitlist stays small I may be able to try and squeeze everyone in, but as always, we'll see when the meetup gets closer! Stay tuned for periodic updates.

    1 · September 10, 2013

    • Johnathan I. T.

      I can bring a couple of extra chairs for the meetup if you need it :)

      September 10, 2013

    • Kate M.

      We shall see, but thanks for the offer!

      September 10, 2013

  • Sam P.

    Oh hey, I just realized I'm not even 20 minutes from you in Rockville. So yay for meetups that are less than hour of driving away!

    September 10, 2013

  • Julie

    can I come?

    September 6, 2013

    • Kate M.

      Right now there's an attendance cap because I don't know how many people my place can hold. I may be able to let more in later but for now I'm keeping it at 15.

      September 6, 2013

    • Julie

      aww ok

      September 9, 2013

  • Sean C.

    darn, no spots left :( Oh well. Maybe we can have another one sometime! :D

    September 8, 2013

    • Kate M.

      You can still get on the waiting list! I may expand it later. I just need to figure out how many I can fit.

      1 · September 8, 2013

  • Kate M.

    Just a note to everyone. Some of the videos I'll be showing may have offensive material, e.g. cursing, sexual humor, etc. Everything's hosted on YouTube (except for one video that keeps getting removed for copyright reasons but is on another video site), so it's not explicit, but I just wanted to put that out there as a disclaimer.

    This meetup is focused on what many would consider funny videos, and lots of people have a sometimes dark sense of humor (myself included). Therefore, if you're easily offended, this may not be the meetup for you.

    1 · September 5, 2013

    • Torch(Nathan K.

      Don't worry, I have seen worse. a LOT worse.

      September 5, 2013

  • George F.

    Soooo how long will this run? My manager is going to be on vacation the last 2 weeks of October and I have to work until 4 :/ so I'm just wondering if it until everyone leaves, overnight, or 10pm/11pm/12am

    August 29, 2013

    • Josh T.

      If I finish my PMV project in time may I premiere it at the party?

      September 3, 2013

    • Kate M.

      Don't see why not!

      September 4, 2013

  • Brian Salguero (Cactus N.

    I can come over. Ride-on buses for me are free 24/7 all the way till Christmas '13.

    September 3, 2013

  • Julie

    I will be there

    August 31, 2013

  • Alex P.

    Bleh, missed the cutoff of people. :/ Welp, on the waitlist now

    August 28, 2013

    • Kate M.

      Depending on space I may be able to let a few more in. We'll see when the event gets closer.

    Any possibility of us pullin' up a lame internet game ta see how we fare with an audience?

    August 27, 2013

    • Kate M.

      What kind of lame internet game?

      August 29, 2013

  • Mandy

    I can attend if I can be included in the Shady Grove metro run. Coming from Fairfax (Vienna station). :)

    August 26, 2013

    • Kate M.

      Certainly.

      August 26, 2013

    • Mandy

      Awesome, thank you! :3

      August 27, 2013

    I'll be there! Metroing in. :D

    August 27, 2013

  • Josh T.

    Do you have wifi?

    August 26, 2013

    • George F.

      It can't be an internet party without wifi!

      August 26, 2013

    • Kate M.

      Yep. We have Fios and the long-ass access code.

      1 · August 26, 2013

  • Kate M.

    Setting an attendance cap because sadly, my place isn't terribly large. I may be able to hold more depending on interest, but for now space is limited.

    August 25, 2013

  • Torch(Nathan K.

    Should we bring snacks and drinks?

    August 25, 2013

    • Kate M.

      Feel free to do so. I'll probably be getting some snack foods beforehand, but I'll set up a Google spreadsheet sometime soon if anyone wants to bring stuff.

      August 25, 2013

  • Torch(Nathan K.

    I'm going to need a metro run

    August 25, 2013

    • Kate M.

      Happy to provide! We'll solidify details as the event gets closer and we see how many will need Metro pickups.

      August 25, 2013

  • Sam P.

    I'm gonna put myself as a "probably" since I don't know exactly what will be going on that weekend. I'm in Rockville so it's not a huge range, but I can drive anyone nearby who needs a ride.
