Season 4 · 9:12am Sep 3rd, 2014

I never quite watched all of Season 3. I haven't watched any of Season 4. It occurred to me while writing for personal amusement that I won't feel comfortable posting any pony stories I happen to write until I've caught up on the episodes. At the same time, I feel a strange trepidation about watching Season 4.

Pop-Up Video Ad · 4:39am May 10th, 2014

Okay, what the heck?

I've got adblock running on Fimfiction, but the ads are getting through. Not only a relatively unintrusive one at the bottom, but a pop-up video ad. I didn't see what it was for. I reflexively closed the page with keyboard shortcuts when a pop-up came up. That reflex is overwired from the early days of the internet when questionable sites would chainspawn pop-ups until only those with quick reflexes could avoid their browser dying.

Ponyfinder · 12:05am May 8th, 2014

Apparently, I at some point ordered a copy of Ponyfinder. Or something.

Between this event transpiring and my receipt of my actual copy of the book, I forgot that I'd ever done it, and in fact forgot that Ponyfinder was a thing that existed. In case anyone reads this and doesn't know, Ponyfinder is a thing that exists.

This isn't a review post. Surely it ought to be, but my name isn't Shirley. Suffice my review to be: It's really awesome.

Talking Advertisement · 4:18am Apr 26th, 2014

I had FimFiction whitelisted on my ad-blocker to avoid negating their ad revenue, but two of the ads just started blathering at me simultaneously. That is a hard no. I will not tolerate talking ads on sites. Sound-producing advertisements in general are walking over a pit on paper flooring. Talking ads are right out. They're intrusive, and quick to discover that I've lined the pit with spikes.

No more FimFiction whitelist from me. If that hits someone's ad revenue... good.

"Thou Goddess", "Wild, Sweet, and Cool", and "Flitter" · 9:23pm Mar 3rd, 2014

I have updated my primary recommendations list. A top spot has been stolen by Horizon's "Thou Goddess", displacing two other very worthy stories with its poetic beauty. There is scarcely a height of acclaim I would not believe it deserves (which is more or less the Primary Recommendations entry requirement). Perhaps this passion will fade under some future sun, but it is solid

Dreams of Twilight Sparkle · 11:53pm Oct 15th, 2013

I took a nap today, and I dreamed of being Twilight Sparkle. It was a subtle thing. It was only when I woke up and thought, "That was an odd dream of Twilight and the two Princesses." Then I thought to myself, "Wait, who was Twilight? I don't remember talking to-oh. Huh. I was dreaming of myself in that role." (If you don't want to read about a dream of Twilight Sparkle, stop here; I would rather not waste anyone's time, and there will be no secret insights hidden in this
