[personal profile] sasha_honeypalm's musical tribute to Barbara G. Walker's (professionally published!) novel
Amazon:


Don't know much about history
Don't know much about theology
Don't know much 'bout how to write a book
Don't know how to cite the quotes I took
But I know all that I say must be true
And I know if you believed it, too
What a wonderful world this would be

Don't know much about geography
Don't know much sociology
Don't know how to understand folklore
Don't know what a reference book is for
But I do know that one god is bad
And if we'd kept the goddess we once had
What a wonderful world this would be

Now, I don't claim to be a goddess
But I'm tryin' to be
For maybe if I'm a goddess, people
You'll all worship me.

Don't know much about history
Don't know much about technology
Don't know much...


[personal profile] rosepsyche's paean to the Power of Story is also quoteworthy:

I have to call "bull" on Antiope's reasoning that art and music are inferior because they are "not alive" for another reason. No, such creations aren't living, breathing things. However (and I apologize if this gets a bit corny), the best of them can seem as if they are alive, get us invested in their characters, have us cheering about their triumphs and crying over their tragedies. They are just as valuable in their own way for their ability to entertain, to inspire, to teach, to help us grow and develop by seeing the world from a new point of view, and I don't think anyone involved in creating them would appreciate being told that their work can never compare to something that was squeezed out of a vagina.

In the interest of Being Excellent and considerate of those who plan to watch this episode, all references to the content of this episode are stashed under the cut and will remain so hidden for at least a month. Someponies like to watch MLP:FIM in herds and it can be a while before they get all their ponies together. 8^) As spoilers are also likely to be in any comments: don't read if you haven't yet seen the episode unless you like being spoiled. When you're ready, drop in a comment and say what you thought of this episode!

After a month, I hope Episode Discuss posts will be so far off the top page that it'll probably take the tag to find them, so about a month after posting the cut will be removed. 8^) Sometimes I go back and drop in little extras into the posts, like comics and links to the music.

Broadcast starts at 11:30 am Eastern Daylight Savings Time, which should work out to 4:30 pm UTC, 8:30 am PST and maybe about 11:30 PM Down Under. Confused? Look at the PonyCountdown widget on the community page! At the moment there are just 45 minutes left to go.

Written by Josh Haber.

For those of you following Twitter, you can follow writers Nick Confalone (Hearthbreakers), Mike and Will Fox (The Gift of the Maud Pie), Joanna and Kristine (Gauntlet of Fire), Dave Polsky (Rarity Takes Manehattan) and Jennifer Skelly (Buckball Season). Other twits in the early morning chorus may include the likes of Meghan McCarthy, Jayson Thiessen (Supervising Director of MLP:FIM), Andrea Libman , the voice of Dragon Lord Ember Ali Milner, Big Jim (storyboard work, voice of Troubleshoes and Director of MLP:FIM), Mike Vogel and Josh Haber. The hashtag to watch should be #MLPseason7.

Review for episode 19, It Isn't the Mane Thing About You, below the cut. )

MLPMovie_in_Germany

If you want to catch the MLP Movie in theatres in Germany in English, you have one chance, two days before it gets released in the US. Here's the deal, on October 4th, the following movie houses will have a "Brony showing" of the movie at 20:00 CEST:


Colloseum (BERLIN)
Othmarschen Park (HAMBURG)
Ruhr Park (BOCHUM)
Hürth Park (KÖLN)

The Kinowelt chain of movie houses is making two of these preview events. The first, at 2:30 in the afternoon on October 1st, is for a German dub of the film. There are details here, and it looks like admission includes a poster, gratis, for "jeden Besucher" (there's one born every minute!). Buy your tickets online. Do it now, the October 4th screening will be the only one for the English version in Germany. Schnell! Schnell!

If you're a UK rabbit, you're going to have to wait until October 20th.

It seems that Starbucks is offering sandwiches with Cage Free Egg Whites. Personally, I never keep my egg whites in cages. Usually keeping them in their shells works just fine.

Legends of Equestria!

frith: Blue-grey cartoon pegacorn with light blue mane (FIM Luna enchanted)

The Legends of Equestria multi-user interactive immersive environment game is back and open to all! Unfortunately, "all" causes the servers to crash so you might want to try and dial in tomorrow or maybe even next week. But the good news is that it's just an open weekend event like in the past, but it supposed to keep on going, so you and I should have ample opportunity to get in and explore. Right now I'm downloading the client. It's 762 MB and that's going to take me 2 hours. Browsing anything else right now is like working with a 33 kb/s dial-up modem. Been there, done that.

So to get in you need to create an account on the Legends of Equestria forum. That username and password is what you use to log into the LOE game.

You will also need a client to run the game. You can download that here: https://www.legendsofequestria.com/downloads . There you can choose from Windows, Mac and Linux. I don't know what the "Launcher" is, so I chose a "direct download". When it finally finishes downloading, I expect to have a zipped folder. If I recall correctly, I unzip the folder, find the file with the feather icon and click on that to launch the game.

This time around, the pony you design after logging in starts the game as a foal and ages as you gain experience. There are several quests, like the cookie quest that nets you a pair of music headphones, and a few new areas, such as the apple wood. Beware of beasties, even if they're pretty.

You can't do that anymore, those flying things are deadly.

[personal profile] rydra_wong posting in [community profile] metaquotes
Everyone was nice to me, but I found it hard to participate in some of the conversations because everyone else there was fluent in Gearhead and I just don't care. It was all

One dude: "How do you like that model BLQ45Z?"
Other dude: "It's got pretty good flang, but the chimping bleederweep doesn't zerbert as well as I like in the corners."
First dude: "I heard that floppykush helps with the zerberting, tried that?"
Third dude: "My next squelch is gonna be a floppykush! Used to have a panpan bleederweep, but you know what they say about those oilsquirms!"
All dudes: [nod sagely and then argue]
