Andrew W.K. Feels the Love at 'My Little Pony' Convention

 (source Rolling Stone)

Right now Canterlot Gardens is in its second day of Events and the Rolling Stone has done an article about Andrew WK's appearance at CG. Andrew WK had his own panel event yesterday with a speech based on Pinkie Pie, he spoke about a new virtue to the room: individuality 

“It’s a humbling experience . . . to be a part of something, even if it’s like a neighborhood,” said the 33-year-old New Yorker. “It doesn’t mean you’re giving up a part of yourself. We choose to get together and celebrate our uniqueness.”
The sense of inclusion and acceptance that had greeted him, W.K. said after his panel appearance, exemplifies the good-natured fandom that advocates a lifestyle of “love and tolerance.”
“They didn’t react badly to someone who might not understand,” he told Rolling Stone. “You convert the people – you kill them with kindness, essentially. It’s more wanting everyone to feel this in whatever way they can.”
