Working on retail and tech support for five years now has giving me some background so this episode hit close for me. It is intimidating - much more than some would say. You will be pulling stupid stunts and saying weird stuff to satisfy or circle-around the customer. Personas do emerge specially when uniforms are involved, and if you're not careful they will take over even off-shift. One of the scariest things I've experienced is finding myself as high-and-mighty and above

Curse my tongue... · 5:43am Oct 27th, 2017

I have a weird accent... or is it a pronunciation tick? If I read a word before I ever hear it I end up giving it my own bit-of-a-spin. I also tend to play with words and their sounds. English is my co-primary language. Sometimes those end up conspiring and I arrive at strange connections.

A few thoughts on The Movie. · 3:33am Oct 6th, 2017

Definitively, a very pretty movie - as long as you don't look at the ponies' eyes; Voicework is great - I really liked Emily Blunt's; and the music is what one would expect; . Yet it somehow doesn't even seem like "MLP:FiM" to me - similar, but not the real deal. Most of the characters felt bland and flat. The story was so-so. I think it was even tamer than the show itself. Maybe they played it too safe.
Overall, Six out of Ten.

On The MLP Movie Trailer · 4:47pm Jun 29th, 2017

The animation is something I need to get used to. The models looked okay in some of the stills when we got word of the team's switch from Adobe Flash to Toon Boom, but once in motion... I need to see the final product to adequately judge. Admittedly, it looks smooth AF and mostly agree with Dr. Wolf.

What are the chances that the Starlight's far-off village and her childhood village are the same place? The place was shown to have it's own traditions, and Starlight was certainly bonkers enough to have (re-mapped?) it at one point to fit her ideas and they're now recuperating them. The good judge stats at home, they say.

Is it official to say that Starlight has replaced Twilight at this point?
Also, I think I see a ship sailing! With this episode, and her interaction with Spike and Sunburst in "The Crystalling," I feeling that we have a fleet captain in the making.

I don't write about episodes, but.... · 3:56am Jul 19th, 2015

Ep 5x13, "Do Princesses Dream of Magic Sheep?," was *. I tend to keep this stuff to myself, but I did not like it. It goes to the bin along with "Tanks for the Memories", "Appleoosa's Most Wanted", "Make New Friends but Keep Discord", and "Princess Spike." That's a five out of thirdteen, or ~38% of current airing, that haven't jived okay with me. Every season of every TV show has a couple of stinkers, but this last one strikes as particularly bad (to me). I like dream sequence but I'm not sure

I hate the Bookshelves feature. · 5:30am Mar 16th, 2015

Perhaps "hate" is too much of a loaded word; more like: "I regret finding and using this feature." Sometimes I get this penchant for organizing and upon finding Bookshelves, well, all stories I follow/fave/like must be organized into their respective bookshelves according to 'verse/series.

That sinking feeling. · 5:04pm Aug 19th, 2012

You know that feeling, that feeling about the things you've done and are about to show someone? That feeling of dread, sickness, and nausea that makes you say, "What have I done?" That's what I feel right now regarding Field of Posies, my contribution to "Operation: Stormy Skies"/"Raindrops Needs More Love", and my
