Time to Come Clean · 6:38am April 2nd

This was all good & fun, but I think I got too deeply into character. I was LARPing as an autistic American for comedy purposes, but it's time to be the real me.

Hi, I'm Smiling Scripts. I'm a unicorn from Canterlot. I come from a largely martial family. I attended magic tutelage under some of Celestia's finest students, & now I'm working at a hardware store. What are the odds? Earth ponies & donkeys make for good customers though.

Self-Improvement Introduction: Acknowledging Problems & Solutions · 9:58pm May 27th, 2021

Imperfections. Chaos. Problems. Strife.

We have to accept that life would be nothing without these. Maybe you have bad relationships with people you love. Maybe you have health problems. Maybe you’re out of shape. Maybe you’re addicted to drugs. Maybe you aren’t very popular in your clique. Maybe you never get the things you want done in the day.

However, rather than simply embrace them or accept them, our job is to overcome them to bring order into our own lives.

The Language Police: Censorship from the Left · 2:58am May 16th, 2021

Now that we have covered how a far-right movement that was barely alive for more than three decades, one that came & went quickly, was still enough to leave a lasting impact on children’s literature, we will now discuss the political spectrum that has been calling for censorship long before & long after a mere three decades: The Left.

I Missed May the Fourth · 12:55am May 6th, 2021

So alas, I must stay alert for the Revenge of the Fifth!

Star Wars was a big film phenomenon when it first came out; few believed it could take off the way that it did. It didn't even win many awards for direction when it first came out, but rather, for editing! & the first one was subperbly edited, BTW. Moreso than any of the prequels or sequels. Without such good editing, it was bound to fail.

Here is the story behind how good editing saved the day:

The Language Police: Censorhip from the Right · 2:59am May 1st, 2021

We shall now cover the actual censorship.  We will start with censorship from the Right.  Now we will be careful with the use of the word “censorship”, since teachers have a responsibility to select their textbook material carefully.

The Music of Halo: Eastern European Influences · 11:32pm Mar 11th, 2021

When I first heard the vocals of Halo: CE, I thought it was Hungarian folk music, but I was wrong.  It was just Marty making high pitched sounds.  However, Hungarian & Bulgarian folk music have played palpable roles in the shaping of Halo.

Here is the piece to which I refer:

Compare that to when they try an actual Bulgarian singing voice for Halo 4:

The Language Police: The Testing Companies · 3:46am Mar 2nd, 2021

Not only has this impacted the publishing corporations, but this has impacted testing companies as well.  Ravitch explains that a “top official at the Educational Testing Service told me that his company and other testing agencies deleted test items whenever anyone complained about them; items might be dropped not only on grounds of bias, very broadly defined, but also if they make a student feel ‘uncomfortable’.” (Ravitch, pg 50)  The problem with this is, as Ravitch explains, is that “good

The Language Police: Textbook Publishers · 3:57am Feb 7th, 2021

As we go on, we shall continue to prove “that’s what they say” wrong, because “if you are willing to accept unquestioningly what ‘everyone’ says, then the story is over before the investigation begins” (Ravitch, pg 31) Remember, in the Middle Ages, being unhealthily overweight was fashionable among the upper classes, people used to believe that there was absolutely no evolution, not even very basic natural selection-fueled micro-evolution, some black people believe that all white people have
