    Apart from the obvious, I am also a huge fan of Star Wars, Mass Effect, and pretty much any other good sci-fi franchise.

    I'm very much into vintage music, styles, and technology from the 20th century. Basically anything between the late 30s and early 70s has my name on it, though the 50s I find especially fascinating.

  1. Quibble might be my favorite guest character in the show. This episode was absolutely hilarious, and definitely knows what it's talking about. I've been a Star Wars fan since I was a baby, and controversially, I actually like Phantom Menace. I have had this very same argument on that subject that Rainbow Dash had with Quibble. I loved Patton Oswalt's performance, the dialogue, and all the little quips and touches that really make this a great parody not only of Indiana Jones, but fan arguments in general. I think it's my new favorite episode.
  2. Robyn's really stepping her game up. Her latest cover is just as good as some of Scott's best work.
  3. A couple classics by Vera Lynn: I'm not even British, but I've been stricken with unaccountable Anglophilia today.
  4. As they were 102 years ago, and 25 after that, tomorrow all eyes rest on Britain. Give 'em hell.

      I made a thread for it

  5. Democracy is a flawed, imperfect system that's ripe for abuse; but I'll be damned if there's anything better. Here's hoping Britons remember this tomorrow. Go Brexit.

      The decision's already here?

      Yup. Tomorrow, Britain either declares its independence, or submits to unelected dictators.

      Oooh,boy, hope they break off.

  6. Where's that chap who always brought up the Conversion Bureau in threads like these? This seems right up his alley.
  7. 10s, 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, and 80s. I have a pretty wide range of tastes. Not a fan of the 90s, or anything past that.
  8. Even though there are other princesses, I believe it's safe to say that Celestia holds more power than all others. Luna was an exiled traitor who only recently returned after 1000 years imprisonment, Cadence is more of a governor focusing exclusively on the Crystal Empire, and Twilight just... does shit. We have been given no indication of Equestria having a congress, or parliament, or any other legislative body besides the monarch. Voting probably comes into play on the local level (hence why Ponyville has a mayor), but being Supreme Princess is clearly an appointment for life. Economically, Equestria clearly has the spirit of commerce and enterprise about it. Burgeoning capitalists like Rarity and Applejack are always looking to expand their businesses and rise above the competition. I have yet to see any regulations come into play, so I'm at least going to presume it's a mostly free market. There's also a probable lack of an extensive welfare state, since Flutter's brother essentially had to go live in the woods when he proved too insufferable to live with. But what's most interesting is the tech disparity. Manehattan is clearly a modern, 20th century metropolis, while Ponyville still looks stuck in the 12th century. This leads me to believe that technology doesn't travel too far in Equestria, likely due to a weird system of inter-county tariffs on industrial goods, or simply the fact that trains are only used to carry passengers for some bizarre reason. Either way, the difference between industrial and agricultural communities in Equestria is even more pronounced than it was in the United States before the civil war, and that doesn't look like it's going away any time soon.

      Damn. Should have used my devil trips to declare the Trumpenreich. :P

  10. If there is even an insinuation of a rumor of a possibility of a sequel to Wolfenstein: The New Order, I want it.
