    I'd like to take a moment to share a song with you. It's a nice song. It's happy. It helps.


    Happy Wednesday.

    Bandy Goes to College, Vol. 1

    No, I didn't drink the kool-aid. I've just gone to college! Moving in and starting classes and having those little panic attacks where you don't know whether or not you're throwing your life away over a useless degree have been somewhat taxing, but I've been able to find time to write in between dying on the inside and finding ways to excuse not eating to save money.

    I present an Acreuballian amount of vernacular, all set to the bop on the top stylings of John Coltrane.

    Jazz Lounge

    This will be loosely connected to the cannon of a larger, future project. Stay tuned!


    Happy Sunday, and go Bulldogs!

    On Regraduationing

    It happened, probably by accident. I passed my calculus class by four percentage points, and I got my diploma. Before I prostrate myself before the mighty gods of Student Loans and prepare myself for the inevitable kick in the financial testicles, I'd like to look back and briefly (thank God) reflect. Grab a drink, kiddies, and let uncle Patrick serenade you with my anticlimactic, if not cathartic, not-horse-words.

    You guys all know me as a writer. I identify as a writer. That's awfully cool. Writing has helped me get through the tougher parts of these years. Shame I didn't discover it sooner. Two and a half years after starting my first fanfiction about an OC alicorn with a mysterious and tragic past, I'm editing a real-life honest to goodness novel that might even become a book one day. I've gotten a lot better since I started, and I view it as my greatest accomplishment to date. That, and not drowning when I was two. Thanks for the tips and tricks (and for my aunt, who dragged me out of the pool).

    I was gonna write a lot more sappy crappy emotional stuff about how grateful I am and how much you all mean to me, but then I realized how silly that would be. The best way to show my appreciation would be to continue writing. That's how I know you as: readers. And friends.

    See you around, and happy Monday.

    Popcorn: An erotic fantasty tour de force by TheBandBrony

    Set the scene!


    He pushed me onto the bed. My legs trembled as he leered over me, grinning his same salacious grin he had worn for the past hour. He could smell me, and he made no effort to hide the effect the scent of my arousal had on him. The carpet, already stained with a previous bout of lovemaking, would be sullied even more. The stench would linger in the shag for years. And, for once, I was absolutely okay with that.

    "I want you," I spoke, my voice quivering as much as the throbbing pulse between my legs. "Today was utter garbage. I just need to relax and get you in my lap. Warm me up from the inside out, and the outside in. If you know what I mean."

    He knew exactly what I meant. If you know what I mean.

    "IMMA FUCK U GOOD BEYOTCH U GONA B SORE" he replied. His primal growl resonated deep within the cockles of my soul. It popped and fizzled, like a tone-deaf harp player with Parkinson's.

    "Say it," I groaned. I would have begged in an instant, if only to hear his buttery voice echoing in my ears once more. "Say your name."

    "MY NAMES ORVILLE REDENBACKER BITCH"

    And then we fucked like rabbits. Except the rabbits were made of popcorn. Satellites orbiting overhead detected the obnoxious crackling sound of our raunchiness intimacy.

    The stench never came out of the carpets.

    Happy Sunday.

Octavia wakes up one morning to find that she can’t play any of her instruments at all -- It’s almost like her cello wasn’t meant to be played with hooves in the first place! Together with Vinyl Scratch they must figure out what the hay is going on around here.

Or maybe they’ll just end up breaking Octavia's cello.

Be afraid. Be very afraid.:pinkiecrazy: You were mentioned on EQD. http://www.equestriadaily.com/2012/09/story-way-it-was-meant-to-be-played.html

#2 · 111w, 16h ago · · ·

i found this amusing :pinkiehappy:

#3 · 111w, 16h ago · · ·

Oh ponyfeathers :o

#4 · 111w, 15h ago · · ·

No telling why Tavi's stopped working, but Vinyl has a fallback for her problem: She's a unicorn, ergo: MAGIC! :coolphoto:

#5 · 111w, 15h ago · · ·

Found this amusing but not that great.

#6 · 111w, 14h ago · 1 · ·

Frederic may soon realize that he, too, cannot play the piano. How the buck do you play a piano with hooves?!

#7 · 111w, 14h ago · · ·

What? Complete? That's it?!

#8 · 111w, 14h ago · · ·

Indeed, it would be interesting if the story went on.

#9 · 111w, 14h ago · · ·

>>1269471

Maybe her horn has just became a stick coming out of her face. :derpytongue2:

#10 · 111w, 14h ago · · ·

Notice: This story isn't listed in Band's "Stories" section yet. Either s/he forgot to hit Publish, something is wrong on FimFiction's end, or EqD jumped the gun.

#11 · 111w, 14h ago · · ·

An auspicious beginning. But where to go from here?

Surely you won't leave the two most musical ponies in all of Equestria unable to perform. You couldn't possibly be that cruel.

Right?

RIGHT?:pinkiecrazy:

#12 · 111w, 14h ago · · ·

This was entertaining, good work sir!

“I’m not crazy. I’m classical!”

Best line ever! :pinkiehappy:

>>1269668

Next up, the weather team can no longer manipulate water particles in the air with their bare hooves.

#14 · 111w, 14h ago · · ·

>>1269567  Very, very carefully.  :trollestia:

#15 · 111w, 13h ago · · ·

...you know, taken to it's logical extremes, this could be a setup for an interesting "Adventure" story. Magic in Equestria dries up, need to go fix it before Luna and `Tia can't maintain the Geocentric spin of the Sun and Moon anymore.

Oh, and Rainbow Dash is PISSED because, without magic, her wings are TOO SMALL to allow her to FLY!

Please, somepony take this idea and make it a fic. I REALLY want to read it now...

Speaking of afraid...

That cover pic makes me very afraid...

Wait, it must be Discord! He is inflicting real physics on Equestria. Run! Pegasus will fall from the sky! Tea cups will be rendered useless!

>>1270850 It's been on EqD for a few hours, but 500+ view in that small a time frame is still oh mah gerdness so awesome.

#22 · 111w, 10h ago · · ·

Dun Dun DUUUNN! I smell a sequel!

#23 · 111w, 10h ago · · ·

It's a little late, but I'm still gonna say it...

INB4 FEATUUUUURED!

#24 · 111w, 10h ago · · ·

Hilarious...absolutely hilarious!  :rainbowlaugh:

#25 · 111w, 9h ago · · ·

Saw this on EqD

#26 · 111w, 9h ago · · ·

If this spreads from pony to pony like a plague chaos will be caused.

#27 · 111w, 9h ago · · ·

There's a surprisingly dark implication in this comedy piece. The magic of Equestria is failing.

My personal theory has always been that pony magic is channeled via keratin "antennae". This is most obvious with unicorn horns, of course, but it's also how pegasi fly (keratin feathers channelling flight magic) and how ponies in general manipulate things with their hooves that they normally couldn't (short-range telekinesis). It's also how earth ponies do whatever it is earth ponies do. :ajbemused:

>>1271885 AspergerGoodness certainly does have a way with a blank canvas. The same could be said for your avatar, too.

#31 · 111w, 5h ago · · ·

more pwease:scootangel:

#32 · 111w, 4h ago · · ·

This is a really interesting concept.  I'd like to see more!

OCTAVIA SMASH!

#34 · 110w, 6d ago · · ·

This reminds me of a certain Spongebob episode...

>>1274116 SOILED IT! SOILED IT! SOILED IT! SOILED IT!

#36 · 110w, 6d ago · · ·

>>1271201

I always felt they could grab things due to microscopic cilia on their forehooves which could be unconsciously manipulated by the pony.

#37 · 110w, 6d ago · · ·

Oh NO!:pinkiegasp: Without the pegasus-maintained weather, Equestrian society will crumble!

And THEN what will I do for a living?:raritycry:

#38 · 110w, 5d ago · 1 · ·

I think this situation is known as the centipede's dilemma. How do they walk with so many legs?

#39 · 110w, 5d ago · · ·

My faces:

>>1274636

Oh Faust NO! Don't take the fic down in disgust! He didn't MEAN to insult your creative ability THAT badly! Don't do it!

#42 · 110w, 1d ago · · ·

How is this a comedy!!?? This is tragic!!! :fluttershysad:

But seriously, you should make this a full length about everything everyone who posted before me mentioned with the magic failing and real physics and whatnot :derpytongue2:

#43 · 109w, 4d ago · · ·

Pony hooves work on a biological form of granular jamming.  There, I have explained everything. :pinkiecrazy:

#44 · 89w, 6d ago · · ·

I'm not sure what was more amusing, the story or the cover art you got for it.  Either way, thumbs up, well done sir!

#45 · 89w, 6d ago · · ·

>>2094938 Yeah, Asperger's a pretty cool guy when it comes to art-ing.

#46 · 63w, 6d ago · · ·

It's contagious and Octavia is Pony Zero?
