Mythological Resonance · 6:05pm June 15th

Today, Overly Sarcastic Productions came out with this. It is a discussion of the god Dionysus and the transition of his representation, from underworld ruler of all, through being the god of destructive madness, to being the god of fun times and parties.

The parallels to Discord cannot be ignored.

Late to the party. · 1:49pm May 25th

So, a couple of months ago, I heard for the first time the lyrics to Canterlot Camelot:

It's true! It's true! The crown has made it clear
The climate must be perfect all the year

A law was made a distant moon ago here:
July and August cannot be too hot
And there's a legal limit to the snow here
In Camelot
The winter is forbidden till December
And exits March the second on the dot
By order, summer lingers through September
In Camelot

Camelot! Camelot!

So, I just saw the Last Jedi... · 8:47pm Dec 16th, 2017

And a couple of things popped out at me:

1) Old Master Luke is every anime Wise Old Mentor trope. Including the comedy ones.

2) If Quentin Tarantino can me called a foot fetishist for the number of times that he focuses in on them in a movie, then this movie's director, Rian Johnson, is a hand fetishist. There were so many more hand close-ups in this movie than foot close-ups in any Tarantino movie. I mean, it was getting weird.

The Citizenship Question · 4:30pm Sep 11th, 2017

This is something that has been bothering me for a few years now. The Diamond Dogs that kidnapped Rarity -- are they Equestrians? Does Equestria have a concept of citizenship as we think of it? How does one become a citizen? If it is by being born there, then is every sapient born within Equestria's borders a citizen thereby? Should the Diamond Dogs have been reported to the authorities? Is slavery illegal in Equestria? Should they be charged with kidnapping? (Or "unlawful confinement", which,

The Logic Conundrum · 8:32pm Jul 10th, 2017

The logic conundrum is this: everything is an appeal to emotion, even appeals to logic. For appeals to logic will not work unless the target has an emotional investment in logic as a superior basis upon which to make a decision.

Sitting in my bathrobe, watching YouTube. I believe that the furniture has come to accept me as one of their own.

By Request · 7:19pm Mar 17th, 2017

Written for James Fire, in response to Comma Comma.

:moustache: Ahem.

As I walk through the valley where I harvest my grain
I take a look at punctuation and realize that it's a pain
Cause I've been pausin and clausin so long
That even my sister knows that my mind has gone.
I ain’t never parsed a sentence that didn't deserve it.

Something that we don't see often enough · 2:34pm Mar 16th, 2017

"No!" Sunset stomped her foot. The universe shook. "I am not so self-centered that I believe my personal issues outweigh the slow collapse of the universe! You are going to take a rutting number, and you are going to wait your moon-banished turn! I will deal with you when I'm finished saving the world. Again. Do I make myself clear!?"
