  1. Happy birthday! :D 

  2. Eeyup. In two places. When Pinkie bawled out, “I’m gonna miss you so much!” Watching her cry this realistically was absolutely gutting. The final song, mainly the final chorus. Perfect time to publish the show’s best and one of the most emotional.
  3. …I can live without watching closeup shots of Scooby and Shaggy eating and spitting out mushed-up vegan burgers… :yeahno:

    Crystal Cove Officer: *shows chopped-off piece of finger* Snappy Jack did this to me yesterday. Does this…look like something an animal would do?

    Uh, duh! I'd be shocked if a snapper didn't!

      Was Snappy Jack jealous the Crystal Cove Officer had fingers to snap & he didn't? :P

  5. Episode 8 of Mystery Inc.

    Theater showing man wanting to spend more time with his schnauzer instead of girlfriend.

      Velma's mean in this show...I love it! :laugh:

  6. 7/52 eps finished. So far, the latest is my favorite Mystery Incorporated episode thanks to its intertwined conflict between Fred and Daphne.

  7. On to Ep. 7 of Mystery Inc. Aside from the creepy art style, this version of Scooby Doo has some other differences that make it pop.

    1. The whole gang feels way more fleshed out, from Scooby being more protective and cute to Freddy being an adorable dork. They’d not talking cardboard boxes, but characters with real motives.
    2. Scooby talks a lot more in this incarnation compared to other series. Not just exclamations or repeats, but full sentences.
    3. The chases are a lot scarier with real stakes.
  8. >Freddy fallin’ in love with the volleyball nets instead of the girls playing the game

    ”They’re nylon. Absolutely perfect for traps!”

    :laugh:

  9. Long ago, @The Coffee Pony recommended Scooby Doo: Mystery Incorporated. Now onto episode 3!

      Great show! Never did finish it, though. :sunny:

  10. I hope they will, too. Sure, the characters make up and forgive quite a lot, but there oughta be limits of when they can start trusting him again. Ponies ostracizing and not trusting him for this trick is one way. No, he doesn’t need to be punished, since he didn’t commit the crimes, but he needs something so he really understood the gravity of the consequences.
  11. I still don’t like it. In fact, I think I hate it. Minus some changes (I no longer call it “well-planned” behind the scenes; it wasn’t), my comments here stand. Discord’s plan was beyond reckless, risking millions of lives over a short-sighted goal of making Twilight feel self-empowered. By revealing to being the trump card throughout S9 (including bringing back Sombra), he made every villain defeat feel less of an accomplishment to the characters, thereby making Twilight feel worse than before. More importantly, this plan doesn’t feel so in character for one key reason: he put his friendship with Fluttershy at risk; didn’t he think of imagining what would happen should she find out eventually? No, he didn’t. He may not be the sharpest tool in the shed, but that stretches my suspension of disbelief way too thin.
  12. Congratulations, @TBD! Welcome to the staff!
  13. >wonders what it'll be like if they sing "What More is Out There" >votes for it
  14. This feeling of betrayal and anger from Sanders supporters at Warren is far more different than their contempt for Hillary. Yes, she wasn't well-liked at all, but Hillary had a reputation of not being the nicest politician, and everyone knew she was a centrist. All campaign long, she had to be pushed leftward. How is it different from Warren?

    1. She and Sanders are considered to be giant, longtime allies and friends. Despite differences in various policy, they're part of the Democratic Party's progressive wing.
    2. Despite some friction and shots by the surrogates late last year, it never got too far, and neither Sanders nor Warren were disrespectful to each other. In fact, after Sanders returned to the trail, both sides became cordial again.
    3. During past debates, both of them held their pact while going after others and defended each other when needed. Recall Bernie's billionaire contribution jab to Biden and Buttigieg last month; this was after Buttigieg strawmanned her.
    4. Slowly, Warren crept more and more rightward in her policy rhetoric. Waffling on Medicare for All to attach two separate bills in order for it to become law (then using the Big Pharma "choice" talking point, and not referencing M4A at all last night).
    5. Many Sanders supporters not only saw her as a solid #2 candidate should he lose, but also donated to her campaign. Hell, the winning progressive was likely going to pick the loser as the VP or some other cabinet position.
    6. Primaries can get dirty and ugly in a hurry, but for the Warren camp to leak a lie about Sanders, whose impeccable honesty transcends politics, and treat him as a misogynost was extremely stunning. No one expected the Warren camp to play the dirtiest tactic in a Dem presidential primary in quite some time.

    And how rich for affluent liberals (most of whom are white, Warren's main primary demographic) to richsplain and tone-police Bernie supporters for feeling so bitter. Yeah, you got the healthcare, and you're gonna be fine, but Bernie's working-class supporters don't have the privilege like you do.

  15. u know CNN’s tonight’s biggest loser when almost 50k tweets with the hashtag #CNNisTrash is trending nationwide…

      CNN = Crappy News Network?

  16. debates winners, okays, and losers:

    1. Steyer (handled himself really well)
    2. Biden (only hit at once early, but skated by)
    3. Sanders (had some substantive answers, but he stumbled more than normal and felt unprepared at times. his mic was too soft, too, but i don't blame him for that)
    4. Klobuchar (nothing too memorable, but did okay)
    5. Warren (didn't help herself at all to help bridge Sanders's supporters, most of whom had her their second choice)
    6. Buttigieg (black voters distrust him to a great degree, and i think his answer to that q regarding it will hurt him more)
  17. i've never seen a dem presidential debate this awful in my life! :Cozy:

      @Aangel Dust yeah, they're not good, but good god, the framing of every q was an ultra-right, trumpish talking point, more so than past debates. and they covertly showed hostility towards bernie here.

      There's also the obvious logistical challenges of these debates. There's 6 candidates sharing the stage still and they likely only have about 2-3 minutes to articulate and sell their arguments and points. Until the debates narrow further down to 3-4 candidates don't expect much substance. You're better off following Twitter.

      @Cwanky the debates between clinton and sanders were much better for the reasons you gave. two ppl exchanging their ideological differences.

  18. Lemme get this straight! Bernie Sanders…

    1. Fought for women’s rights since before the Roe v. Wade decision!
    2. Stated at least twice in the ‘80s that he wants not only more women in office, but a woman president!
    3. Has a 100% record on abortion.
    4. Wants to repeal the Hyde Amendment.
    5. Has a close friendship with Warren and similar legislation record.
    6. Lobbied Warren to run in 2015 and only decided to run for president himself when she declined.
    7. Campaigned aggressively for Hillary Clinton, making 39 campaign stops to rally supporters to elect her over Trump.
    8. Never attacked Warren in any way throughout this campaign, even going as far as sticking true to their pact and defending her during debates.

    And in a span of two days, Warren decided to not only burn bridges with Sanders (and reinvigorate the false “Sanders is divisive” talking point from four years ago), but double down on what looks like a lie by the campaign and published by CNN (the host of tomorrow’s debate) claiming that Sanders told her directly that he doesn’t think a woman’s ready to be president? Sorry, not buying it!

  19. …Seriously? Last year, Daniel Farrands released The Haunting of Sharon Tate, a movie so atrocious and offensive that one could argue it's the worst American-released film of 2019.

    Now he doubles down with The Murder of Nicole Brown Simpson, a movie that Chris Stuckmann claims is worse! Wow…

    P.S.: I haven't watched either film, and I never will, and I think there's enough detail in both to form a judgment over them.

      Honestly, Tarantino was more tasteful about Sharon Tate's murder. :dry:I

      And I like Tarantino and his exploitation film style.

    Warren campaign, tsk-tsk-tsk, keep falling for all that manufactured consent, eh?

    1. Waffled on Medicare for All after Buttigieg and the media cornered you for not figuring out "how to pay for it"? Check.
    2. Waffled on your response to Soleimani's assassination? First after progressives called you out for 1980's, right-wing talking points, and then after Meghan McCain baited you? Check!

    Now you make a fundraising pitch long after the record on a forged Bernie volunteering script was corrected. Why? Because this fake script (Sanders' team forbids volunteers from campaigning negatively against other candidates) dared to mildly:

    1. Refer to you as Sanders supporters' second-preferred candidate.
    2. Critique your base for having an older, affluent, college-educated, and second-most white coalition (first being Buttigieg) of the top four candidates, and will likely vote Democratic no matter the nominee.

    OMG, what a scandal! *smh* Warren campaign, grow some thicker skin.

  21. Luna and Celestia’s visit to Ponyville’s post office remains super adorable! :ph3ar:

  24. Ravens played their worst game of the season at the worst time. Congratulations, Titans!

  25. >tfw Rahm Emmanuel claimed that Democrats need to nominate a “moderate” (aka, another corrupt, war-hungry stooge) to attract voters instead of Senator Sanders

    >nvm the fact that he worked under Obama who pretended to be progressive in his presidential run
