A shell doesn't reveal whether it is hollow

A shell doesn't reveal whether it is hollow

How very fitting that this was performed by the Dazzlings.     Escapism is flight, running. Seems necessary sometimes, but a temporary relief confirms what you run away from. A repetitive, uneventful series of days can be torment for some, bliss for others. It all depends on the inner state, but which is reflecting the outside world. Meaning, if society is healthy, people can lead the same clichée-boring lives as today, 9-5- cubicle job and such, and be fulfilled

Check out this lovely pair of hooters

I know it's probably much more marketing than taste variety, but still, how could -I- possibly pass -this- up? I did skip the pony-themed one though, because, I mean, that's really just shameless.   SUPPLEMENT: They got a mild berry flavor. The violet ones a bit more distinct, like dark berries. (I am generally not getting excited about this common wine gum stuff anymore. But they're alright.) SUPPLEMENT 2: The sugared ginger-lemon stuff they have is much more exciting

My dream bikes ponified and punified

I miss the feeling.   (The fact that the body coloring creates such a good impression of mane and tail is torture. ... Anyone wanna electrostart my long dormant happiness?)   ...   And here is the PinkR3 Pie version, which is probably more theme-appropriate, but the Fluttershy one just feels nicer to me.   ...   This would probably be quite enjoyable, too: ...although I think I would prefer PrincYS Luna style for that one:

The mystery of the Dali ponting

The mystery of the Dali ponting

First this appeared in S2E9 - Sweet and Elite:   And now this in Equestria Girls - Spring Breakdown Part 5 'Hoofin' It':   Note how the old one has, arguably as a bit of an immersion breaker, a more realistic painted art style, but the new one has the cheese that is such an upgrade. Various elements became more odd/abstract, and the wear marks near the corners are mostly identical, too. One could spin all kinds of theories as to what happened here. Diege

If Spike's castle scheming was any more masterful

If Spike's castle scheming was any more masterful

Not only did Spike exploit a sibling rivalry in a sibling rivalry, but he created it in the first place. Spike asked Thorax to impersonate Celestia while she was on important business and instructed him to deliberately brush off all of Luna's security advice to make her susceptible to allying with him for the betrayal. Spike also hired Grogar to abduct all castle guards and replaced them with changelings so that they would be unrealistically easy to distract. Shining Armor was also a c

The Mild and the Mirror

My heart is beating between these two. (And by beating I mean pronking.) Punkie Pie got to work again. This could also read "WIRD". (Pinkie Pie is not normal. ... Well, duh. Pastel-colored cartoon pony. ... And she is notorious for turning things upside-down. And I love doing that, too.) I love the depth of this pun so much. This is beauty. This is magic. This is life.   Fluttervector kindly by https://www.deviantart.com/redpandapony/art/Fluttershy-Being-Fluttershy-297769

Saw this at a supermarket and couldn't resist. I had checked two videos about these and they both indicated these contain various figurines. But that must have been different, some special case, because this one only had an iron-on patch. It was the same chocolate as in the review videos, too. Half brown milk with stars, half white. Both tasted mild, creamy, not overly sweet, and unspectacular. I had a feeling it was too good to be true. (This day was rich in disappointments. Also go

Turtle, tortoise, terrapin - no one right way

Turtle, tortoise, terrapin - no one right way

Lately I was reminded of this old episode that conveys in a gentle, subtle, humorous way how this debate about whether it's a turtle or a tortoise is somewhat futile since different countries do it differently, and the various other, supposedly more scientific terms are based on the same meanings, too, so any name you could be using for refering to the whole range of those animals that share the same traits are also based on the common terms for supposedly specific types. Sounds confusing? Exact

I invite you to follow me on Twitch! :-)

After a long wait I finally got VDSL and a proper render PC and settled on playing in 1080 when streaming so that I can read chat without having to buy a separate display. If you sign up and follow me on Twitch, you can get notified when I'm playing something live and chat about it. My style is typically relaxed and thoughtful, experimental-unconventional-playful and philosophical-critical-informative.
