    When Cozy Met Tirek PREVIEW

    When started writing my Cozy Glow origin story (which went through two title changes) for the Depth in Innocence contest, the deadline was so distant that it kept slipping my mind. On Mother's Day, I checked the contest rules to see how much time I had left, and noticed that the deadline to sign up for the

    What's the deal with Cozy in Marks for Effort?

    Halfway through writing my fanfic that focuses on Cozy Glow's backstory, I re-watched “Marks for Effort” to get a better feel for the character. This was my first time seeing the episode after watching everything that came afterward, and it didn't help me understand the character any better than I had before. Viewed in this new context, Cozy's characterization in this episode seems like it

    Update in the Crazy Times

    In the past few days I've had an increase of views, to the point where I wondered if one of the site admins had given me a plug. Apparently people just have more time to catch up on their Read It Later lists. So thanks to those of you who read my fanfics.

    My Baby Pony

    I 've known about the stop motion shorts for a few weeks, and I finally watched one a couple of days ago to see how bad it was (specifically, it was “Cake Off”). And . . . Yeah, it was bad, folks. It wasn't even a preschool show. This was a show for babies. There was just giggling, laughing, crying, and no dialog. The short technically had a plot, but it was very simple and without substance.

    My Top 10 Shows of the 2010s

    As the 2010s come to an end, I've decided to make a list of my personal favorite series that aired/streamed in the past ten years. Without further ado, I'll give you the short list and then my explanations.

    10) Shark Tank
    9) The Big Bang Theory
    8) Over the Garden Wall
    7) Dragons: Race to the Edge (Riders/Defenders of Berk)
    6) Stranger Things
    5) Phineas and Ferb

My Baby Pony · 1:32am February 26th

I 've known about the stop motion shorts for a few weeks, and I finally watched one a couple of days ago to see how bad it was (specifically, it was “Cake Off”). And . . . Yeah, it was bad, folks. It wasn't even a preschool show. This was a show for babies. There was just giggling, laughing, crying, and no dialog. The short technically had a plot, but it was very simple and without substance. It's the equivalent of making funny faces and noises to try to get a baby to laugh. I'd say this was a regression to “Newborn Cuties” except “Newborn Cuties” at least has dialog. The stop motion animation is better than the cheap flash animation in “Newborn Cuties,” but the mouths are bothering me. The mouths are below the muzzles instead of on them, and the muzzles don't move with the mouths. They mostly look okay when they smile, but when they frown, the ponies look like they have stylistic human mouths beneath weird-looking noses.

The best thing I can say about the new shorts is that they're, well, short. At two minutes, they're more like long commercials. I'm just going to forget about them and wait for the new movie and G5 to come out. Even if they're not as good as FiM, they've got to be better than this.

Thanks for showing me, I hate it.

The noses are just... yeah.
We'll see g5 when we see it, I guess.

I watched the first one. Never again. Nope.
