But most of my friends say it’s a lengthy and annoying process trying to put one little animation as a spray.

Getting a regular image as a spray is simple enough but animated ones are a real chore and they have to be under 512KB as well I think

Did somebody here just get something posted on Pony Confessions? This one was posted last night:

“I’m a part of a relatively small, tight-knit herd (on a site that isn’t even pony-related), and I think it’s fantastic. They’re all nice, accepting, and somewhat controlled (perhaps out of fear of the mods and other forumers…), and they’re among the friendliest people I know. So maybe move away from the massive message boards and find a smaller community to settle into, where everyone knows each other.”

That sure sounds like KYM.

There have been rumours about a South Park episode called “My Little Brony” since the middle of last season. This is no more real than it was last time.

Why would they do this to us.
I’m pretty sure I’m just going to disregard these two episodes in term of being canonical, no matter what happens in them.
Hopefully they’ll be okay; we thought Return of Harmony would be bad because of Discord, but look how wrong we were.

NOW READ THIS

Hope you guys are ready for something interesting. Movie buffs, get ready!

The Searchers was a 1956 Western movie directed by John Ford starring the incomparable John Wayne, widely considered one of the best of all time. Wayne plays Ethan Edwards, a former Confederate solder visiting family in Texas. The story picks up when a rogue tribe of Comanche Indian troop torches the Edwards homestead, killing most of the family and kidnapping Ethan’s young niece Debbie. For the next three years, Ethan and his erstwhile nephew/partner Martin, who is 1/4 Comanche himself, will search across the West for Debbie, relentlessly pursuing the Comanche war party.
The film was notable for portraying Wayne in an Anti-Heroic role. Ethan is extremely racist; he talks down to Martin because of his Indian blood, defiles Comanche bodies so they won’t pass on, and considers leaving Debbie with the Comanche after she was forced to marry one of them. There’s also a romantic subplot between young Martin and his childhood friend Laurie, which is complicated by his mission. I highly recommend it.

All that being said, I think this could be a good fic. I didn’t have the Apple family in mind exactly, but a variation of it, perhaps starring young Granny Smith, would be something I’d like to see.

TL;DR: This is a good movie, might make a good fic. Thanks for reading!

I just makes Twilight seem a bit Mary Sue-ish. She’s the most powerful unicorn in Equestria that we’ve seen, she is the God-Queen’s personal student, she apparently has a brother that’s marrying a BUCKING ALICORN PRINCESS!

I’d be fine if the princess wasn’t a Princess and an alicorn (possibly as powerful as the sisters for all we know) and stuff. I don’t know. I just pisses me off.

I recall Faust saying somewhere that she had never intended on… whoever-the-heck being an alicorn. Back when this episode was first planned, she wasn’t an alicorn.

@Season Finale

I imagine this has more to do with Hasbro than it does with Studio B. In order to sell the upcoming wedding playset, Hasbro wants Studio B to make a wedding episode. In order for this episode to work, there needs to be some sort of excuse for Twilight to be there, so why not make Twilight a sibling? After all, a sibling would show up to a brother’s wedding and this would allow the Mane 6 to appear as guests.

And yes, I don’t like the fact that Cadence is an alicorn either, and I don’t like the fact that Twilight might be related to royalty. But it’s a show for little girls. The little girls will always take priority over us, whether or not they’re the majority, especially in the eyes of Hasbro because they’re the ones who give them money. And though the show was made to be enjoyed by everyone, Faust had still made the show with the little girls in mind (though the alicorn idea was not hers).

Does this mean we should go into a mindless rage? NO. As with the Derpy scenario, this only makes our image worse and pisses off Studio B and Hasbro (don’t bite the hand that feeds you). By all means, we can go ahead and ignore it’s place in cannon, which is what everyone really ought to do instead of flying into these rages. I don’t think that Studio B or Hasbro is happy that whenever they try to do something with the show, they ultimately wind up pissing someone somewhere off, so this would be for the better of all of us.

I’m not trying to sound as if I’m pointing a finger to anyone on here, but it’s important that we all keep calm. Also, this is only a rumor, and we should all wait for some more information.

And who knows, maybe Cadence’s horn is fake.


@ Western discussion

I’m not well caught up in my westerns (despite Red Dead Redemption being one of my favoritest games ever), unfortunately. I plan on fixing this, though I haven’t had time to.

That makes… a lot of sense.

I usually don’t like two parters, because the plot is always so cliché. Saving the world from the returning darkness with friendship? Saving the world from returning chaos with friendship? Not like it’s been done in every other little girls’ show, hell, every show in the history of television ever!

Don’t get me wrong, Discord is the coolest dragon/horse/snake/deer thing I’ve seen. Drinking a cup of chocolate milk, in which he literally drinks the cup and leaves the milk behind, which he then throws and causes a grenade sized explosion is just… wow.

So other alicorns besides Celestia and Luna are canon now? Then the theory of Mrs. Cakes having an affair and then giving birth to twins who each only inherit half of their father alicorn’s powers, yet maintain his godly strength, is one step more plausible!


But yeah, Hasbro is falling into that “make new episodes to sell merchandise” phase again. I can’t blame them, MLP is really more of a toy line with a show, not the other way around. And with the Hub being such a terrible source of revenue, they have got to keep it up somehow.

@That weird episode

I don’t see what the problem is. If you think back to the Hearths Warming Eve episode, you’ll remember that Equestria was founded without the help of any alicorns. That means that Celestia and Luna must have arrived on the scene later, and they had to come from somewhere. So what’s stopping other alicorns from coming into existence? What if alicorns are just an incredibly rare race, and not actually ‘goddesses’ like most of the fandom seems to think? It could also be that any unicorn that achieves a certain level of magical aptitude becomes one.

I’m a little more concerned with the idea that Twilight has a semi-regal brother (he looks regal to me, can’t be sure though). I’d always liked the idea that Twilight came from a fairly normal family, and that it was her drive to become as talented as possible that lead her to achieve everything she did. It kinda ruins it if she was born into nobility.

Also, what’s this ‘wedding shocker’ going to be? He’s doing it for money? He’s cheating on her? She’s not really an alicorn but is just pretending? She’s actually Princess Celestia in disguise? Trixie is planning on crashing the wedding? (Oh God please let it be that one)


Edit: Completely unrelated, but I just found this on EqD:

I thought it was really interesting. Surprising that one of the most impressive looking shots in the show so far is actually quite easy to do.

Nah, his name is Shining Armour. He’s probably a Soldier, his uniform looks similar to a lot of British dress uniforms:

I don’t know, Lauren Faust worked on an early draft of this episode so it must have been a long time ago. I don’t think it’s strictly a marketing thing.

I just makes Twilight seem a bit Mary Sue-ish. She’s the most powerful unicorn in Equestria that we’ve seen, she is the God-Queen’s personal student, she apparently has a brother that’s marrying a BUCKING ALICORN PRINCESS!

I couldn’t agree more, simply how this scene can capture our attention. The smooth motion, shadings and the perfect positioning of frame by frame. Imagine in the next 10 years, there will be far more advance digital technologies that can make holographic episodes of ponies in your own living room.

That’s an interesting little video there. But yeah, nothing done on Flash is terribly difficult (in my experience, anyway). Time consuming, yes, but usually not difficult. Still, the result is impressive.

As for the rumoured season finale episodes… I’m still on the fence about those. I can see how they could end up being terrible, but at the same time I know that the team behind them can and most likely will make them amazing instead! We’ll just have to wait and see, I guess.

Woaaaaaaah….my mind is blown so hard…

Mar 07, 2012 at 03:23PM EST


I personally like where this seems to be going.
There is maybye some incoherences with the source of this information, but concretly the episode doesn’t seem problematic… Just because a new character, as important as the brother of a protagonist appears, doesn’t mean this would give something disappointing. I mean, until now the show has always well led its episodes and ideas, why would this be a shitstorm? I only think the show tries to prepare something big for the season finale. If the information is true then I put now enough trust in the producers to think they will do something great again.
