Goodbye Marimo!!SpikeCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 36831205Sticky[View]

It's been a long ride. I got into the show around the middle of season 1, and I started visiting Ponychan during the hiatus between seasons 1 and 2. I feel like being here as really helped made be better at analyzing and discussing media, and it's surprising to think I even became a mod here.

However as time passed, things have been getting busier for me in real life. I've finished college and started working a job. I've found myself getting more busy and spending less time on here. I had stopped interacting and checking on the board as much as I used to, and probably not as often as a mod should. I even stopped making threads about the comic. However, I still stuck to trying to make sure the episode threads would go up, even if I wouldn't be around to watch the episodes live.

Now that the show has finally aired its last episode, I feel like it's time for me to finally step down and make it official that I'm retiring from moderating. I've seen many posters around here just drift away over time, but I'd like to at least say it out loud that I'm leaving. Might check on this site months or even years down the line, but otherwise, I'm done. Goodbye you guys. I thank you all for all the time I've spent around here, from the good times to the bad. With that, there's nothing left to say but...

Twilight is best pony.

When the rainbow laser depowered the baddies and the bell seemed to crack, I actually thought for a second that the finale would feature Discord and the Sisters losing their magic forever. That would have actually been a kinda awesome conclusion in my opinion, giving weight to everything that happened and giving Twilight even more of a reason to step up as ruler.

/pony/‘s Last Hurrah EquestriaGuy!1DerpyVA.6Country code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 36829824[View]

As we head into the final season, I think it’d be nice if everyone from throughout /pony/‘s history stopped by in the series finale thread to say hey for one last time, bid FiM farewell, and say what the show meant to them. I’m posting this now because I know how slow this board is, and I expect old faces will probably pop in at least once between now and then, and will hopefully see this.

I remember back in the golden era of FiM, our episode threads could get over a thousand posts. We were a pretty vibrant community, and while I don’t expect us to get near that again, it’d be great if our last episode thread was something to remember.

So whether you watch the show still or not, even if you got off after season 2 or 3, keep it in the back of your mind to post here in the series finale thread, which will most likely be some time around October.

Pick another couple of shows still in production or in heavy circulation.

Martha Speaks isn't as great as MLP but was made by Studio B and has plenty of music and a theme song by Daniel Ingram.

There are plenty of archives of Rapunzel's Tangled Adventures which is on their third season mid point hiatus at the moment. Brilliant music and a fairly nice overall story arc.

And, of course, the obligatory Rick and Morty series which is starting their fourth short season tonight on AS. They're streaming the first episode tonight. Not honestly looking forward to the rest of the series now that the pressure to get seasonal renewals is gone. The stuff they've already shown from con appearances isn't looking that promising.

To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand Rick and Morty. The humour is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of theoretical physics most of the jokes will go over a typical viewer's head. There's also Rick's nihilistic outlook, which is deftly woven into his characterisation- his personal philosophy draws heavily from Narodnaya Volya literature, for instance. The fans understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths of these jokes, to realise that they're not just funny- they say something deep about LIFE. As a consequence people who dislike Rick & Morty truly ARE idiots- of course they wouldn't appreciate, for instance, the humour in Rick's existential catchphrase "Wubba Lubba Dub Dub," which itself is a cryptic reference to Turgenev's Russian epic Fathers and Sons. I'm smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as Dan Harmon's genius wit unfolds itself on their television screens. What fools.. how I pity them. 😂

And yes, by the way, i DO have a Rick & Morty tattoo. And no, you cannot see it. It's for the ladies' eyes only- and even then they have to demonstrate that they're within 5 IQ points of my own (preferably lower) beforehand. Nothin personnel kid 😎

According the Hasbro staff e-mail leaks from a few years ago, yes. It will be a somewhat questionable 3D animation project with the new voice actor team that will be followed by the official 5th Generation ToonBoom based animation series to be released some time in 2022. In short, the next gen will look more like MLP The Movie and Rainbow Roadtrip now that Flash is off the table once and for all.

The same e-mail leaks had images including a number of proposed redesigns for the various Mane 6 characters.

File: 1573196318183.png (220.66 KB, 450x555, 1572820015436-1.png)

Tom Sawyer is, in both the book and song, the personification of a sort or type of person, the sort of person breaking away from the status quo, exploring and, importantly, the sort who represents both a normative and actual shifting of the human paradigm in the direction of his (man's) rational evolution. This fits, to a greater or lesser extent, with Freud's idea that man evolves in such a way as to shed his dependence on ideals (religion, social norms) and replace that dependence with a greater implementation of reason (leading to self-reliance, a deeper self-awareness and sense of responsibility for ones own "destiny"). Tom Sawyer has thus been a different people at different transitional points in man's evolution (our history). "Todays" Tom Sawyer is exactly what the song says; a leader to the next step in realizing pure reason or rationality; the "space he invades," is his days work, to explore the unknown as progress towards truth; the "friction of the day," is the resistance he faces from both people's unwillingness to embrace change as well as the intellectual rigor of tackling what hasn't already been explored (the guy who cuts a path through the forest faces resistance from the brush leaving those who follow behind with little to do but be complacent and stagnate). He (TS) does all of this with a mind filled only by his own conclusions (i.e. "not for rent"), and via the power coming from honest intellectual reciprocity or dialectical process ("he gets high on you," "he gets by on you"). As far as "riding out the days events," the song is referring to fate controlling what life gives to us, even though it is our responsibility (and can be a point of pride if done well) to live our own life with what fate hands us. In RUSH's "Roll the Bones," Peart refers to the same notion, "we draw our own designs, but fortune has to make that frame."

From what I was able to figure out from watching the episode tags, most of this reel was from Season 8 episodes. Most of the people on the show were already aware that season 9 was it and they weren't going to be rehired for Generation 5. One said plainly in one of the clips "What are they going to do? Fire us?" Hasbro isn't going to pay the voice actors from G4 for obvious pay requests, especially by Tara Strong and John DeLancie.

It will be interesting to see who all is hired for the next movie due out in Sept. '21, as announced today.

So I've noticed this since season 4 appeared. Im writing to express my feelings about "MLP Friendship is magic" series. Season 1-3 was a personal favorite of mine because I liked how you reversed the gender roles. You "added an ingredient" which I can only describe as a sense of superiority of the girl ponies: emotional, social status (spitfire), behavioral (RD, AJ) and more. I think the episodes in season 4 (and the following seasons) "changed directions" and gave the male ponies the upper hoof. It made me feel uncomfortable while watching. It disappointed me. It made me feel as if you were imposing the stereotype of whats male and female.
I doesnt feel like a "girlshow" anymore

1. How can Twilight do Celestia's job all day long and follow it up with an all-night shift policing the Kingdom of Dreams? Is somepony else picking up the slack?

2. When, and how, did Twilight acquire the long legs and the ever-flowing mane?

Wrap-up Nother NonymousCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 36831252[View]

Looking back on a decade of Faust's ponies, I find myself thinking about what originally drew me into the fandom. In my case, it was watching the video of "Winter Wrap Up" -- just the song, excised from the episode (S1E11). I was enchanted, and I walked into Equestria and never came out. But I rarely encountered anything in the show later on that had the magical force of that first video.

What was, and is, so special about it? What was there in this one number that drew me in to a franchise that I had previously classed with Rainbow Bright and the Care Bears as a farrago of meretricious and cynical cuteness mobilized in the service of corporate greed? Here are some answers that have occurred to me.

1. The "Winter Wrap Up" number is quiet, modest, and serious. Apart from Twilight and Spike's getting buried in a fall of snow at one point, there are no sight gags. Nothing funny happens, and there is no laughter. On the other hand, nothing epic happens -- nothing magical, explosive, or portentous. The subject of the song is the absence of magic, which is forbidden to Twilight by local custom ("the earth pony way"). At first appearances, this is a work song.

2. And yet it is mythic and magical. It deals with the fundamental stuff of mythology: the cycle of years and lives, birth and death, the melting away of winter and the coming of spring -- Botticelli's "Primavera" redone with cartoon horses. It is both solemn and gay (in the original sense). It is also magical, because this is a world in which the sun and moon do not rise and set, and the seasons do not come and go, without the intervention of labor and intelligence. Unless the Houyhnhnms work together, the clouds will not part to let the sun's warmth and beauty in, the southern birds will not return, the snow will not go away, and winter will be eternal. Only laboring intelligence can shift the axis of the world. If Disney had animated this number, the birds, ferrets, and bunnies would have been running around chipping in, brushing away snow with their tails, and bringing ribbons to Rarity in their beaks. The MLP number presents us with a fantasy mode of interaction between culture and nature that is less obvious and harder to define.

3. The main (mane) characters are very delicately individualized. Pinkie does not bounce, shriek, and emit balloons and confetti; Rarity does not posture and preen; Rainbow Dash does not boast, compete, and wh

>I don't suppose you used to be Time Lord before you became Anonymous, did you?
Nope. Never registered a name here.

Animation has always been a thing for me because, before digital graphics and green screens, animation was the most practical way to realize a story in visual form as far as movies and TV went.

I can see a lot of influences in Song In The Sky. Everything from Lovecraft to Hideaki Anno's works. Toss in the mix of modern and older mid 20th century architecture and you get a very interesting backdrop for a story.

The limited animation was part of the problem that could not be overcome due to time constraints and limited animation resources to work from. His second episode will have vastly improved resources due to having hired someone with far more experience with the software he was using to render the video.

>The limited animation was part of the problem that could not be overcome

Interesting. So-- the pilot wasn't a finished product, but a sort of high-grade animatic? There ought to be a word for that.

I should have linked the guy's YT account earlier. Here you'll find his other early projects along with updates on Song In The Sky. He's pretty interesting and the videos hold a lot of the details behind his creative process and the problems he faced in creating the second episode.

Final Reflections EquestriaGuy!1DerpyVA.6Country code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 36831200[View]

I thought I should post some final thoughts, reflections, and comments before I close up shop for good and say goodbye to pony.

I came into the fandom 8 years ago today, October 13th 2011, at 4:01 AM EST. I’d always seen the pony stuff on /b/, but didn’t know it was a cartoon. I thought it was maybe someone’s artwork that people were making memes out of or something. Then by chance I found a pony related youtube video, which lead me to the KYM article, which lead me to Ponies: The Anthology, which lead me to watching all of season 1 and up through Luna Eclipsed 7 times each before I took a break from rewatching the series over and over like I was. I remember the exact moment I sold my soul over to the show, and knew that this was going to be my life and obsession for the foreseeable future. It was after I’d seen The Cutie Mark Chronicles, and stopped to read some articles about the show online. They said John De Lancie had just played Discord, which was basically Q. I grew up on TNG, TNG was my life back in the early 90s, so when I read that and saw my two loves had crossed over, that was it, man. This was my show from then on. I was driving home from work laughing hysterically because I knew this was it, and how absurd it was that I would fall in love with MLP and that it was such a damn good show that it would cross over with Trek.

The first few years I ran into a hell of a lot of drama in the fandom, a lot of it my own fault. When it comes to things I’m interested in, I’m either a 0 or a 100. With pony I was a 200, so I was always in arguments and getting banned out of here and TRS. I’m sad about those interactions, even the ones that weren’t my fault. I’m glad things settled down after that.

As for the show, I can honestly say I’ve never seen a show with as much heart, and as much effort into creating perfection, as MLP. DHX always knew how to make a show that simultaneously spoke to both adults and kids. Everything from the animation, to the music, the writing in the early seasons (and some of the late season individual episodes), everything exuded this perception that those behind the curtain truly understood these characters and knew how to bring them to life. They never felt like flash puppets. They ALWAYS felt alive. There was life in them. There was depth. But what stood out the most to me was the voice acting. Every line, every inflection was delivered with an absolute understanding of the character’s thoughts and fee

This thread will be followed this Saturday by a finale-discussion thread, and probably by one or more separate threads looking back over the whole MLP decade. It would be great if we could coax as many of the old posters as possible to come back for a final Show Discussion on /pony/. If you know any, please hit them up; if you are one, please join in the final post-show discussions this weekend.

I’m definitely going to be typing up some final reflections and things I want to say before I hang it up for good. This show has been profoundly meaningful to me and I want to say as much as a sign off.

The events taking place were... actually pretty well written? But the character interactions, the dialogue, the choices... pretty much your usual schlock. Not to mention a lesson that was much better handed in season 1? What's sad is that this is probably one of the better episodes this season.

Haven't seen much of the student six this season, have we? Or even the pillars.

No time for them anymore now that loose ends are being wrapped up and various characters get their final showings.

On one hand, I think we would have seen way more of the young six if there'd be a season 10, on the other hand their story arch was pretty much completed in season 9.

For everyone asking who Miller, Meghan, Larson keep referring to when they say "they" and "Hasbro" I have an answer. Here's a very informative thread for everyone asking who was actually behind it all. These 3 links explain you the "brains" behind the show.

For those who don't understand the lack of full disclosure by people who work at a show level produced for a corporation like Disney or Hasbro, one must first realize that there are very few places where people can obtain employment. You fuck up at one place and have that splattered around the industry and fandom at the same time, your odds shrink to zero, even for people with decades of success in producing and writing for shows.

Thus, you rarely get those who rely on the fact they'll never get work again if they piss off one too many suits at the major studios or the people who own the studios.

Hell, you don't even need to piss someone off if they think you're too expensive to keep around. Look at what happened to OK KO! and Ian J.Q. last month. He and his show were canned. No reasons given. No controversy or drama. Just a nice kid with a fun show being fired after three seasons.

Just so you all know, OP is a deranged, racist Romanian who has been spamming /mlp/ about Vogel since at least April 2017. He's been permabanned many times and continues to ban evade.
