Re-finding the show: Recent life and comments on first 3 episodes of S4

Wow.   I changed my name!   I used to be called Happy Plant. I have changed to Planty, but will be keeping the same signature for now as I don't really have enough time to be able to create anything that is actually good.   The reason for this is because I got fed up of people thinking that Happy Plant is a reference for weed use. It never was it was just supposed to be the fact that I like plants and I am happy. In any case Planty is good and it also is a reference to another TV show (Pl

Confessions From An Introvert - My Thoughts!

THIS IS NOT MY WORK, THAT COMES AT THE BOTTOM:   http://thoughtcatalog.com/laitin-amanda/2014/02/10-confessions-from-an-introvert/   Fellow introverts: It’s ok to be reserved, but don’t use that as an excuse for becoming a hermit. Extroverts: Let us be. Not everyone can be a social butterfly like you.   1. I hate the stigma attached to the word “introvert.” That means a weird, socially awkward person we all want to avoid. To me, an “introvert” is someone who is selectiv

Film Review: The Wolf of Wall Street (spoiler free)

So yesterday I had the fortune to see The Wolf of Wall Street. So here is a shorter the my usual reviews, review of it!   Here is the trailer:   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iszwuX1AK6A   So, the story is basically this guy "Jonny" starts from nothing and working his way through the perils of being a broker, eventually makes it big. The film explores his life and tells his story.   My Impressions:   Before I start i want to remind you that it is an age rated 18 film, and believe me i

I Get more stressed the Twilight! - Trying to live life to the full

So I have come back to UNI and I have 5 exams in 7 days. I love my course and all the modules I'm doing, but simply am finding it so difficult to cram as much knowledge into my brain as much as I would like to!   I have also been getting stressed really easily (and feel that my heart sometimes races for a few minuets) and have started to get panic attacks when I think about how much I need to do!   But over the last few days, I've realised, no matter what happens in UNI over the next year, m

Snow, tree, decorations, presents, spending time with family, celebrating Jesus birth, the meal, christmas morning, mulled wine, carroll singing, its just all awesome!   It is also 2 years (not to the day but ish) that I first found MLP as well, what a great 2 years it has

Crazy month!

I feel like it's been ages since I have posted, in fact I don't think I have been on the forum in over 2-3 weeks (which is awful I know).   Lately life has just been so busy and I have had little time to even think about browsing forums, but sadly I was also put off by a fellow brony.   I met a brony and at first I was excited, but then I realised we are just not the same people. I didn't care at all about anything he was talking about! I have never read a fan fic in my life and this guy was

Halloween: Harmless or Harmful?

So, I have not done a good blog post in a while (and seen as I am going to see Thor 2 tonight I imagine I will post a few over the next few days) CW bla bla bla.   But seen as it's almost here, I decided that I would like to do a little piece on Halloween!     Introduction:   So, these are my views on Halloween (from a Christian perspective) and I know that these will differ from your many of the people who read this. Rather then dismissing it, I would love for you to read it and then w

Quick Pokemon X Review! (minimal Spoilers)

So after deciding not to pick up Pokemon X/Y on firday, I ended up buying it first thing satarday morning. I have just finished my first play through of pokemon X (took me 16h33m) and have decided to do a quick review with minimal spoilers for those of you who don't know if to buy it or not .   The Looks:   Firstly, let me just say the game looks great most of the time. The new 3d esc view rather then the top down view of the world really works, and also lets them pull some flashy tricks at

How does Twilight Sparkle do it? - A look at time management, life, and how to get better at it!

It must be clear from people who say me post often a month ago, that I have so much less time at the moment then what I used to have to browse the forums. At one point I was posting many times a day effortlessly and spending many hours enjoying reading all of your topics, but nowadays I seem to have barely any time at all!   Lets face it; I'm struggling with both time management and just a massive lack of time for everything. Currently I am trying to juggle:   1. My course 2. My church/read

Moving into Uni Yr2! - A new house, but it's not finished....

So (and I have typed this once but internet on my PC broke), Today I moved into my new house for the second year of Uni. Now this would be uneventful normally, and I was really excited to move in, but when I got to my new house something was up....   The house was unfinished! Now as a bit of back story, I am living with a friend who's dad owned the house and is refurbishing it, however, I did not expect to be moving into a house so unfinished!   So when first entered the house, I was greete

RUSH - The Review (no spoilers)

It's time for another film review! This week I got to see RUSH - a film by director Ron Howard rated 15 (from bad language, sex and gore).   Here is the trailer:     Plot:   Rush portrays an exhilarating true story of possibly the two greatest rivals in F1 history - English playboy James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth, or the guy who plays Thor) and the perfectionist, Niki Lauda (Daniel Bruhl).   It's set in the mid 1970's in the hayday of Formula 1, where both drivers push themselves to bre

God and Gaming, Are they compatible?

So this was always a topic I was going to talk about at some point, but seen as there was a topic about strong Christian parents stopping people playing games I decided I would write this post:   So I will answer 2 questions:   Are Video games demonic?   Are videos games a waste of time? (mainly from a Christian perspective).   Making stuff:   So lets look at Genesis: Genesis 1&2 – The Creative God •V1 – God creates ex nihilo •V3-25 – Filling and Forming creation   Ultimately,

The Evolution of a Song - The Many Remixes of "Monster" by Meg & Dia

I find the evolution of a song on a website such as this or even on youtube fascinating. The way the same song can be remixed in so many different ways and move so far away from its original genera and sounding I find amazing, and its great to have the talent of so many artists able to do there magic on one song! So here is a great example of it using "Monster" by Meg & Dia (with a pony example at the bottom).   I chose this song initially because the contrasts are so massive!:   Origina

As Promised: Experiences of a first time camper!

So, as promised, I said on a recent topic I made just before I went camping that I would write a short blog entry when I got back about my experiences.   Firstly lets set the scene; I was camping with my Christian Union at a Christian conference camp that had roughly 1000 campers. The weather was very sunny on the first 3 days of the 5 day camping with overcast/light drizzle on the last few days.   Now I just want to say, overall It was loads of fun ! As people on the forums had promised, wh

FILM REVIEW: Elysium (no spoilers)

Welcome to another film review!   So Today I was fortunate enough to see the a film that is about a week old in cinemas (only gone through one orange Wednesday ) so lets take a quick look at the trailer before my thoughts:     As you can see from the trailer, its set in 2154, earth has become polluted and the wealthy have build a massive space station to live on while the rest of earths population resides on ruined earth. The rich have the capability to heal ANYTHING completely and the

Tinfoil FIM: The death of Celestia ?!? (spoilers from comic con discussed/included)

@sylentmana posted today:   "Because Celestia didn't make Twilight and alicorn. Twilight more or less "attained enlightenment" about the nature of friendship and ascended. Celestia only guided her to that point. She's been grooming Twilight to be her replacement. Even Lauren Faust said that she always intended for Twilight to replace Celestia. The current writers thought her ascending was the best way for her to do that. Twilight earned her wings, so to speak. Also, you may be taking this whol

For the last 7 -10 days over in the UK the weather has been abnormally summer like for the UK.   Normally the it is cold or rainy or both!

Pacific Rim - The Review (non spoiler review)

Today the film Pacific Rim was released in the cinema and I had the good fortune to go and see it!   Bellow if the youtube trailer (to give an overview and synopsis).     Non- Spoiler Review   Now I make an effort to see as few trailer as possible before a film and not read any reviews whatsoever if I like the film just from the trailer. This way my first impressions are the most accurate and I don't have any thought about the film in my head (such as twists).   My initial thought f

Equestria Girls - Film thoughts (My opinions less of a review)

So, being a UK brony I had to wait a fairly long time before I could see a decent version of the film of youtube (I decided to wait until I had a good copy to see before I gave my opinions on it) and for the most part I have not seen anything about the film apart from a few adverts that where on reddit.   Before the film thoughts:   When I first heard about the film I think my initial reaction was one of being a little excited but also very nervous. I have never been one for humanized ponies

Do you know your cutie mark? (with Twilight and Trixie) :D!

So recently I have been thinking about what my cutie mark would be and that got me thinking what gifts I posses and how it would be best to use them.   I always thought finding your gift would just happened and that I would just "Know" but it took a few days thought and practice before I discovered my greatest talent, encouraging people.But that got me thinking about how I would use it and how the ponies in the show use there gifts.   From this I think that the show gets over really nicely t
