  1. Nope, I pointed that out in the initial post about the screenshots. Looks like pony phones have a hoof-slot so they don’t drop it. Which is, granted, genius.
  2. It’s not technology that people are irritated about. It’s smart phones specifically. Also in G4 the general rule is that if it looks sufficiently advanced, assume its powered by magic. But the synopsis says that the magic is gone from the world. So any tech we see is actual, mechanical tech. Not magitek. And that’s 100% a smartphone. It’s shaped like one, she’s tapping on it, and it has a camera spot on the back. It’s possible they won’t CALL it a phone. But a phone is exactly what they’re trying to evoke here.
  3. That’s actually the main issue right there. If phones just EXIST and are used in a casual, practical way, then it’s not a problem. But if it’s littered with tired smartphone tropes like selfies, social media obsession, ect., ect., then it’s gonna suuuuuuck... You know what might have helped? If they made a not-phone. As in, it functions exactly like a smart phone, but doesn’t look like a human one. Just that little bit of distance from the real world object we all have would make it not stick out so drastically.
  4. It looks like the back of the phone has an attachment that they pop their hooves into to keep them from dropping it.

  6. Unlikely. Sonic was a purely visual change. They’ve probably integrated the freakin’ phones into actual story beats.
  7. Heh, you overestimate how much big companies give a flip about continuity. If they even slightly reference it I would be ASTOUNDED.

      You don't understand me. You'll never understand me.
      All my life is is a never ending void of darkness, cruel shadows cast by those who I called friends in a field of endless suffering.

      Wanna go to Hot Topic with me? *Linkin Park intensifies*

  9. I don’t want it to have Gen 4 style, but I do wish it was still 2D. I just have a real fondness for 2D animation, and I feel it’s really under-appreciated in general.
  10. I get a little squeaky towards the end, but here’s some quick ShadO singing for funsies! XD

      @Cwanky Oh there are hummingbirds, I just haven’t added them yet because I don’t know WHICH species they are.

      Do tell me if you find any black phoebes. They have lovely voices.

      @Cwanky Awww they do! What a cutie... <3

  13. Not a good photo, since they were a ways off, but this really brightened up my morning.

    That is what I believe to be a Cedar Waxwing on the left and a Lesser Goldfinch on the right.

    I’m so glad I keep binoculars in my car now.

      @Samurai Equine It’s so weird how Tree Chickens are always so much smaller than land chickens!

      @ShadOBabe True story: One time, my mother and I were suffering because money was tight and we were short on groceries, including meat. We had to skip a few meals to make our supplies last. Then one day, we were looking out the window and saw the biggest, fattest pigeon birds we had ever seen. My mother made a comment like "If only we could cook up those little chickens and make a meal out of them."

  14. Unlikely. Companies like Hasbro as very protective of the image of their really important characters. Like Disney with Mickey, Mattel with Barbie, etc. They wouldn’t dare let the character they’ve spent years building up as an admirable icon for little girls suddenly fall to the dark side. A side character possibly, but most definitely not practically-the-mascot Twilight.
  15. Not a huge fan. She has her good moments, but most of the time I’m of the same opinion as @The Wife of Hawks.
  16. Oh boy, it’s going to be fun helping Spare Parts tonight. :BornAgainBrony: Their electric shelves are on the fritz.

      Think of it as an evening workout! :sneer:

      Sounds quite heavy. Is the electricity situation over there still an issue? Some things take quite long to fix.

    4. ShadOBabe

      @Splashee Nah it was workings after the winter storm and only just now flipped out.

  17. That’s actually what makes me the most convinced that ascension will happen. Little girls love ponies, unicorns, and pegasi, but why choose when you can have all at once? Still rooting for it to be an Earth pony though.
  18. Well she could have just died. Or been sealed away. We have no way of knowing yet.
  19. Are you freaking kidding me? Disney’s doing the $30 rental thing AGAIN with Raya and the Last Dragon?!

    DISNEY. STOP IT.

      I sincerely hate modern Disney.

      @TomDaBombMLP I don’t know. I’m not pay $30 bucks to see it, that’s for sure.

  20. That’s unfortunate, because I still don’t agree with your perspective. But I’m fine with letting it die of you are.
  21. I only meant political abdication. The could still control the sun and moon while retired. But we’re getting off topic.
