You Might Smirk at This · 8:54am Apr 1st, 2017

EDIT: You can read all about it yourself here. Click on the hyperlink "Lataa tiedosto" to see PDF file, then look up page 19 for poni. You can also use ctrl+f to search up more Dash references if you're in the mood for some weird adventure.

A few years ago I carved myself the shape of a promise.

The promise was to include an amount of poni in my Master's Thesis. Anyponi, someponi, everyponi – just not no poni.

Essays Are Magic VI: Explaining "The Gift of Maud Pie" · 3:50pm Apr 7th, 2016

What really transpired in the latest episode of our beloved show, “The Gift of Maud Pie”? What was it really about? Really?

To put the answer shortly, a careful reading of the episode, especially of the logic of the gift it puts forward, offers some intriguing perspectives into pony psychology, which, as must be obvious, is nothing short of anthropomorphic – thus of utmost relevance to ourselves.

Essays Are Magic V: On Cruelty (And Enjoying It) · 3:58pm Aug 28th, 2015

Recently I dipped my hoof in novel ground by writing a pair of fics: the Dragonshys “Gone Wrong”. The novelty of the pieces was due to their violence, which was sexual and fetishist in nature. The response was overwhelmingly negative, as was to be expected. Nevertheless, the whole business, and especially the discussions undergone in the comments, got me thinking.

M.A. LARSON HAS MADE HISTORY (S5E9 SPOILERS) · 6:56pm Jun 13th, 2015

This is no joke, no exaggeration. I mean it. M.A. Larson has made tv-history. And now I’m going to explain why and how.

Today’s episode (S5E9/100th). It was Awesome. Beyond Awesome. You know what I mean. But that is not the point. The point is that this type of Awesome was unheard of. Prove me wrong. I dare you.

Reading Porn vs. Watching It · 6:12pm May 31st, 2015

On the topic of writing sex(y), one might venture to introduce the question of reading.

Now, how does reading sex really differ from watching sex? And how should the difference, if there is any, affect the way we write about sex? These are the queries we will strive to answer today.

Thoughts on the Season 5 Premier: Ponifying Huxley and Orwell (Spoilers, Duh) · 5:18pm Apr 4th, 2015

On a scale of 1-5, one representing near-absolute dissappointment and five a sonic rainboom, the episode was...

4.5

Otherwise I'd call it a clean four and leave it at that, but Daniel Ingram did it again and pulled out the extra 0.5 with an awesome song, of which I'll soon be listening the heck out before turning my ears to the endless remixes. Anyway, how does the numeral really convert into words?

Boredom Is Always a Valid Reason for Stupid Promises · 5:32pm Aug 29th, 2014

Putting this up for myself mostly. Worked a while ago when I was set to get that one fic published in Eqd.

I'll smuggle the ponies into my master's thesis. Be it an odd ponified phrase, a footnote or the whole friggin theme, they'll be there.

Derrida's (meta)politics will also be mentioned.

Oh yeah, and I need to write some more clop about T-Lane, Dash and Shy. Maybe it's time for Helia to make an appearance? About time, methinks...
