*Cracks knuckles* So let's begin with track 1: It's a Pony Kind of Christmas!
First off, I need to get this out of the way... I know this is a theme album based around the most popular December holiday of Christmas, and I'm sure making "Hearthswarming" work instead would have been a daunting task, but still... as a theme album... I'd really liked to see more Hearthswarming than Christmas. This will be the last you'll hear of that!
So... this is a very generic tone of a Christmas song. That isn
Alright... So this is just my introductory post for a series that I'll be working on and hopefully completing before Christmas (or Hearthswarming) Day.
I need to make a few disclaimers.
First off, I am a lifelong musician, having played in concert bands, rock bands, and jazz bands. I am a percussionist, and have taken music theory and several other classes in music as part of my musical upbringing. Because of this I'll be very attentive to the arrangements, meter, tempo and transitions. Grante
I've often spoke out about who is the best princess (vs favorite princess). This isn't going to be about who is my favorite princess (but it isn't wholly unrelated), but rather whom I feel is the best overall princess and why. I'm going to take into account everything I've read and seen across all media for this.
Starting from the bottom... Princess Luna, probably the most popular princess, is also, in all likelihood, the worst princess. To start with she is overly tied to emotions. While this
Alright, so another non-pony pony movie and another review... I'm going to do things a bit differently this time around, for a few reasons. Probably the chief reason is that I feel this movie can be more easily rated on a fair level without compensating for characters and biases going in like I did last time (I gave the last movie a 6.5 due to the characters and novelty of being sort of a pony movie) despite the glaring issues of the movie) So this time around I'm going to give two ratings, one
So, apparently I'm one of the few that didn't like this episode. So I have decided to write down my thoughts about this episode.
It started out OK enough, but nothing I found particularly funny. Bulk Biceps just seemed, from the start, like they were trying too hard with the "YEAH" personality thing, instead of trying to think of new ways to make him entertaining. But really there was a bigger problem with his character... Why couldn't he fly? He was in the Wonderbolts Academy, and flew pretty
Hey! I haven't done one of these in a while, I'll try and keep this thing short... Now, I'm not going to say this episode was perfect, but it is easily one of the best episodes overall of all seasons thus far.
So... We open with Rarity being manipulative and Pinkie Pie being annoying. Neither of these are bad, but it is a very expected way for the episode to open... What was unexpected? Instead of making something up for a reason to head to Manehattan, they used an ACTUAL EVENT THAT EXISTS! Fas

Now before I start, I want to say that I actually didn't hate the movie, on the contrary it was rather entertaining. I'm going to be fair as possible in this review, because the movie is actually NOT bad in my opinion. In fact, I'd say the IMDB rating is almost spot on at it's current rating (6.5/10).
So let's begin... First let's get through the technical stuff. Animation is top of the list... I'm sorry to say that I was a bit disappointed. It looked
I'm really writing this to collect my thoughts on the matter that had transpired. Basically this blog entry is entirely self serving so I can collect my thoughts and have a record of it. Whether anyone enjoys reading my ramblings is entirely up to them.
To begin with, I was never really interested in applying for cast. I had a list of two possible [that I thought I could effectively play and potentially enjoy playing them]... Celestia and Twilight. And really wasn't sure. I was going to app Tw
OK, so I love science. I love technology. And being the son of a [now deceased] Yugoslavian immigrant, I was exposed at a rather young age to this man named Nikoli Tesla, the ultimate geek, science nerd and all around genius. He has done more to shape our modern world and technology more than most (who most people don't know about because of a man named Thomas Alva Edison).
If you need to learn about him, The Oatmeal, made a fantastic comic about him. This link is NSFW as it has coarse language
So, a little background for this. Someone, on another forum, basically said that he didn't like MLP, or any other Western animation, because Anime (Eastern Animation) was better. And so, I wrote a quick reason to him as to why I think he is mistaken in his assertions. So, since this is a MLP forum, I felt this was the best place for me to post my thoughts on the subject. But let me preface this by saying that I am a fan of BOTH mediums for entirely different reasons. However, this will be writte
