Minecraft Creator Likes My Little Pony, But Not Like That

Len Peralta just has a way of bringing out the pony fan in today's most respected video game developers. After outing Valve's Gabe Newell as a certified brony, Minecraft's Markus "Notch" Persson admits his My Little Pony Admiration on the latest Geek a Week podcast.

Now Notch wouldn't call himself a brony per se, but he does admire the workmanship that goes into creating an episode of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. He tells Mr. Peralta that it's the sort of cartoon that he'd let his children watch, if he had children. You know, standard boilerplate for a brony too timid to join the herd.

It's okay, Notch. They're a gentle bunch. After all, vänskap är magi (thanks, Google translate!)
