Again with the movie (and again with the spoilers!) · 8:13pm October 12th

It appears that I (completely inadvertently) managed to convey the entirely wrong impression about the feature film with my last blog post, and in retrospect this is understandable; I detailed a handful of things I didn't like and then said, very quickly, that I liked it very much anyway without saying why due to time constraints on my part. "I liked (x) despite its flaws" is almost textbook damning with faint praise. So let me go into a few specifics of why I liked this movie:

New Cadance of Cloudsdale (but not by me!) · 2:32am October 7th

Well, what do we have here? Why, it's a new piece of Cadance of Cloudsdale fiction, and better still, I didn't have to write it. Go check out "More Precious than Silver or Gold" by the delightful Georg for a story that fits perfectly into (and is for all practical purposes an extended chapter of)

Back on the Cadance horse; also, Galacon 2018 · 1:16am August 30th

First, before I say anything about magical cartoon talking horses, I think it would be remiss of me not to acknowledge all those affected by Hurricane and/or Tropical Storm Harvey. Stay safe; our thoughts are with you.

Wherein Sky does not talk about "Fame and Misfortune"... · 11:58am August 17th

...at least, not directly.

An overview of the various discussion threads on the topic of this episode reveals some strong feelings and opinions that are approaching the "entrenched" level. Also, there's nothing I can say here about the episode itself that hasn't been said, elsewhere and better, by other parties.

What I will say, is this:

"Monday Blues," et al. · 12:06pm August 7th

Okay, I really liked "Monday Blues." It had a moderately strong musical hook (though the closer was weak due to obligatory credits bit; any chance of an extended version with a proper end-chord or something?) Plus, It is always delightful to hear Rebecca S. perform a duet with herself; I like hearing the vocal placement choices she uses to distinguish (Sci)Twi and Sunset. Sunset's double finger-guns "lookin' good, kiddo" at her ridiculous bed-head was wonderfully in-character, and we finally

Headin' to EFNW! · 2:37am May 10th

This year I am committed to only one panel: Characterizing Characters, in Twilight's Writing Room, at 2:15 Friday. This is probably for the best, as standing up in front of people pretending to know something gives me the heebie-jeebies, increasingly, every year. It was better when I had the delusion that I actually did know something.

Anyway, hope to see you there!
