Youtube was recently bought by Google so you know what that means…
Funky seasonal Easter eggs!
And in honor of their current ‘geek week’ thingy, searching for a pony will change the search bar to that pony’s body color!
(This is not an exhaustive list, by the way. There are a few others that work too, such as Cheerilee and Zecora.)
Who knows, maybe someday…
Looks like Amy Keating Rogers (writer for Seasons 1, 2, and 4 of MLP) had her own panel at Bronycon where she got to play around with her ukelele.
She’s been doing these kinds of performances sporadically at conventions for a while now, so it’s nice to see a bunch of them finally recorded.
Here’s my personal fav, with its backstory:
Back when the show was first being developed, they wanted an ‘extended’ opening song to use for promotional purposes and to serve as a short introduction to the concept and characters.
Amy was given the task of writing this intro, and she did, but at some point it was scrapped and replaced with the hyper-punny version you may have seen before (Applejack of my eye, Rainbow Dash to my side, etc.).
Anyway, more recently, Amy took up ukelele lessons and learned one of the instrument’s classic popular songs, Jimmy Buffet’s ‘Margaritaville.’
‘Because she’s weird’ (Amy’s own words), she somehow noticed that the tune matched up pretty well to her old theme song lyrics and so…
She played this at EQLA too, but I guess it didn’t get recorded or released.
Makes for a very fun little sing-a-long!
Amy wrote Derpy’s big scene and clearly still holds a lot of affection for the embattled character.
Song cut for time from The Best Night Ever!
Amy’s original version of the Smile Song, too!
Oh, the chaos of live performance!
And in case you wondered whether the writers have internet access:
I’ve always liked Amy.
She just always seems so genuinely happy and excited to be at these conventions and loves playing around.
She also frequently bursts into song.
Is it any wonder she loves Pinkie?
