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. Like

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'

S05E22 brief commentary

An excellent episode. I like it so much!   Discord being in his own unique way the teacher more than ever, taking care of the last remnants of problematic ideas from the past that unsurprisingly Twilight would cling to the most, since she is very intellect-focused, and the mind is the origin of all suffering.   It also showed how easily one can fall into self-delusion by making up a self-image designed to avoid being honest to oneself. That kind of honesty being the crucial first step in hav

Little update on the charity song collabs issue

Referring to https://mlpforums.com/blog/819/entry-14983-living-tombstone-and-shadyvox-dishonor-their-and-my-charity-commitment/   I added a little update with some new info and clarification to my blog article http://dowlphin.blogspot.de/2015/01/living-tombstone-and-shadyvox-dishonor.html

S5E21 brief commentary

Hm, now that was odd. A Halloween episode was perfect timing, but a Christmas episode right before that, that's kinda odd.   What Fluttershy said in the end is roughly how I feel, too. I don't like to play any kind of prank on people that causes bad feelings and discomfort, unless it's to a trivial degree. Just like Fluttershy said: Seeing others in such a state, caused by me, that would make me feel very bad, regardless of prank or not. The feelings are the same. A certain sensitivity combine

Does Pinkie Pie breathe out helium?

Sadly I don't have a perfect memory, so I don't actually know whether there are scenes supporting this theory, but I thought: Seems like any time balloons are shown in MLP, they float up, i.e. they are helium balloons. ... Do you know of any scene where Pinkie Pie inflates a balloon with her lungs that ends up floating upwards? If not, then I guess the writers really thought it through. ... Or not, haha. We're talking about Pinkie here. I would find it quite natural if her lungs expelled helium.
