So there are no allusions as to what this blog post discusses - the following video is, in a few words, not very good:
This kind of shit makes me super fucking upset. The video isn't fantastic, though it shows at least a modicum of effort, more than you can say for most brony endeavors. Of course, it falls flat in almost every respect. The animation is jerky, adds almost nothing to the "song," and appears to only be a series of in-jokes and references to the fandom, although I guess that's to be expected of a video like this. It isn't funny at all though.
Of course that isn't even to mention the absolutely dreadful song, which sounds like a remix of every other Living Tombstone song, which are already shit. The lyrics leave a lot to be desired; they don't tell a story. I can't even tell if the singing is good or not, because whoever mixed the song is apparently deaf from birth, and had to just guess at the proper levels by looking at the waveform. What little you can hear from Tombstone is impossible to understand through his thick accent, though I think he can probably sing well enough? The vocal actress playing Trixie seems to fluctuate between a pretty good performance and not giving a goddamn shit at all.
So why does this make me mad? Look how many likes this goddamn shit has. Check the original song too, if you like. People ADORE this shit. It's (relative) trash. Almost every brony artist is either trash or mediocre at best. The ones that aren't (Griffinilla, SoGreatandPowerful, PinkiePieSwear) seem to either be generally glossed over or forgotten. This is probably because they don't form a cult of personality around themselves. No OC, no "big name" to attach themselves to, no circlejerking with other shitty brony artists. 99% of the "music" in this fandom is aggressively bland tripe that wouldn't play at the cheapest nightclubs, yet people think it deserves a spot in the music hall of fame next to Led Zeppelin. "Artists" like JackleApp, TheLivingTombstone, WoodenToaster, all vastly overrated despite not even being worthy of a mention if they weren't brony artists.
If you want to listen to some actual music from someone with genuine talent, try listening to this, or something from any of the artists I listed above.
