Poor Applejack :( · 6:20am
This has nothing to do with the last episode. It was an excellent episode, giving Applejack some much-needed screen time, but that's old news now. (Presumably, Sleepless in Ponyville aired in antiquity, and the series was introduced some time during the Carboniferous.)
No, this is about the new pony-based color schemes. Applejack's bears an uncanny resemblance to the infamous Hot Dog Stand from Windows 3.1.
OH NO MY EYES
KILLING ME WON'T GET BACK YOUR GOD DAMN APPLES
Yes, it isn't as bad, but still, looking that close to the worst color scheme in Windows history has got to be embarrassing. (Windows 2 comes close, though.) I don't think anyone would really like this color scheme, either, except maybe AJ's evil arch-nemesis, Tomatojack.
Honestly, though, ditch the red, make the orange-brown darker, and call the scheme "Sepia." I'd actually use that scheme. But no, it's gotta be all ketchup on mustard.
Rarity's scheme, on the other hand, looks like it came out of a Commodore 64, but spent the last thirty years becoming more erudite and cosmopolitan. Moreover, it's actually the least bad of the new color schemes, including the medium ones. (Your mileage may vary.) This proves once again that Rarity is best pony.
This computer is hardly 64-bit. But I suppose it'll have to do.
But I thought you wanted purple!
Granted, it's still not suitable to read off of, but the pony schemes were novelties anyway. And, hey, it gave me an excuse to share the horrors of Hot Dog Stand with you this Christmas Eve. Hey, maybe it'll give someone an utterly horrible gift idea and prevent them from killing themselves from stress. (CLOCK. IS. TICKING.)
