S7E10 - A Royal Problem - brief commentary

I thought the black spots weren't part of Luna's cutie mark. Last time, when it was taken away, only the moon vanished. I assumed it's just her natural coat (and that it's naturally symmetrical). Hm, maybe that was just draining the power from the cutie mark. Interesting dreams ponies have. Pinkie surfing on the gummyboard, wearing shades, I like that a lot, heh. And Derpy as queen, on her side another ... background character. ;-) Starlight's dragon toothbrush was funny. Twilight

Oh my, I almost posted a potential episode spoiler, but then Pinkie jumped in front of the camera just in time. ^^

Star Citizen - good time to join

I recently made a referral code bonus webpage   http://starcitizen.dowlphin.de   that gives a good introduction to the game. I played with the idea of entering the whole advertising game since my altruism focus doesn't seem to get me anywhere, but the more I read up on it, the more off-putting it became. So I'm always trying to get a little caress for my soul without playing in the hands of an ugly system, thus doing open, sincere, more personal advertising.

S07E07 Parental Gildeance - brief commentary

Remember Dashie's fear of failure and sometimes overbearing self-glorification? I think the real meat of this episode was written between the lines. I'd say timing is important and that managing to get along better with her parents could only happen right now, in this episode, not sooner. I think this only makes sense if we assume that indeed Dashie enjoyed her parents' praise, despite the embarassment. That would make her an odd personality though, because I haven't heard something like

New content of mine

It has been quite a while without pony output for me and then recently two humble pieces in a row. I just wanted to share them here. (There must be a trampoline at rockfarm bottom, hah.) I'm curious about what thoughts the video triggers in you.   Caption pic about anim error, found while browsing content for the videomaking below: http://dowlphin.tumblr.com/post/156365530982/i-have-no-nares-and-i-must-breathe-many-ponies   Video edit:

Brief commentary on S06E18 - Buckball Season

Three little things caught my attention in the beginning:   First I was surprised that pony hooves can sense the coolness of spit evaporating on a hoof.   Second I was wondering how AJ could kick an apple so hard that it smashes through a wooden target without smashing the apple with her hoof.   Third I grieved over the missed very first latin lesson for young watchers when AJ used "pegasus" as a plural instead of "pegasi".   The general message of the episode I can relate to a lot.

Brief commentary on S06E16 - The Times They Are a Changeling

This episode reminded me again of how much of a metaphor the Changelings are. They are weaking a mask in order to receive love that they don't carry inside. Everything is energy, so it was only a matter of time and interaction that among teh troubled Changeling culture there would be born one affected by the best of Equestrian magic that is flourishing. I can empathize with Thorax. Being born with that difference can make it difficult to sustain oneself in an environment of takers. It was a bold

Brief commentary on S06E13 - Stranger than Fan Fiction

It's weird how that Daring Do fan seems to have never heard of Rainbow Dash and her and her friends' deeds. The stuff they have done that should be common knowledge, and the guy still argues about details, like there aren't worldsaving heroes in Equestria and he's not talking to one of them.   And his name is Quibble Pants. Well, his parents surely recognized his tendencies early and didn't hold back, hah. ;-D

Brief commentary to S06E08 A Hearth's Warming Tail

I don't mind at all that this episode doesn't match our season. Who said Equestria needs to match our timeline?   Kinda funny how things started out though:   Starlight Glimmer was like: "Bah, it's just about telling the same old story with the windigos again and silly singing and giving presents." And Twilight is like: "Let me tell you a different story. One you haven't heard yet." And then tells the Scrooge story.   It's a story where the main character, Snowfall Frost, hates that day o

Brief commentary to S06E07 Newbie Dash

One thing yet another episode shows is that the one thing Rainbow Dash is not is cool. Nobody is who is obsessing over it. It's a classical issue where one tries to compensate for an inner shortcoming with outside things that are not her. (Apparently I saw where this episode was heading.) When she manages to resolve that, she'll be cool. (I see this stuff all the time.) And hey, her fear of failure is well-known and again shown clearly in this very episode. That might go away if she focused less

Brief commentary to S06E06 No Second Prances

It's a bit annoying when they do a kind of character development reset to get a message across. Although sometimes I wonder whether Twilight has changed at all. She still seems like being all the student. It's like the Discord situation again where the lack of sincere acceptance and good will towards his reformation, the unwillingness to let the past be the past, drove him into Tirek's influence, and it required Fluttershy to be herself in practicing sincere kindness and forgiveness, which is he

Great MLP example of synchronicity :-)

I made this a couple of months ago, but I was today reminded of video-related synchronicities, and compared to some of the relatively well-known stuff on the net (like "The Dark Side of the Rainbow"), this one is quite an intense example. I'll copy&paste the video description below, since it explains everything. Feel free to comment on the video and give thumbs up - It would make me very happy. (I could really use a strong positive side to counter the negative influences in my life so that

Ponified vocalized lyrics to an oldie

It feels good to finally have made something pony again ( always my wish ), after tons of Terraria videos.     Video description: ------------------------ This is a brony fan lyrics version of Buddy Stewart's "Sun Shine On Me" I had this project on hold for quite a while and now was in the right mood and with decent mic to vocalize it. I wrote "karaoke'd" because I have almost no practice in singing or music production but wanted to give it my best shot and make use of my decent mic and

Christmas more popular than Hearth's Warming among bronies?

So much for living Equestria. I notice that especially convention reps and such aren't quite in the brony spirit. It's kind of an irony, because you know how sometimes people wish "happy holidays" because they don't want to exclude non-christians from the celebration/adress (that to a good degree isn't even christian but was annexed by christianity - a religion which fought the pagan faith it annexed)? That's for political correctness, something that people in official representative function se

Dan the jerk in Equestria Girls, wouldn't that be fun? ^^

Could be a minor/major school villain, teaching the lesson of how people dig their own grave, so to speak. ... Ah, there are so many other facets and potential subplots in this.   The thought was inspired by watching this little crossover again:     P.S.: Somewhat related crossover comic of mine: http://dowlphin.deviantart.com/art/How-Dan-managed-to-abduct-Rarity-412825674

Profound spiritual teachings can be found in MLP and everywhere

I wrote a comment on deviantART and realized it's worth blogging here. It is based on a picture I have in my wallpaper slideshow for a long time because it impressed me so much on a deep level:   http://moderatelydeviant.deviantart.com/art/Against-All-Odds-285429361     Twilight shows maybe the clearest example of the power of the controlling mind trying to force its way, fueled by negative emotion. Her energy shoots at Discord, but you see it strike her friends, too, mostly from Discord'
