  1. Merry Birthiversary! 

  2. Hi all, It's been almost 2 years since I last posted in MLPForums! I'm glad to see it is alive and well! I have a question for the dubstep (or complextro, or trap, or glitch hop, or whatever subgenreofasubgenreofasubgenre you identify yourself with) musicians in the fandom.. Do any of you use Presonus Studio One as your DAW? Asking for a friend, who coincidentally, is me. I've looked on youtube, soundonsound and several other internet resources, but have failed to come up with a good guide for what I am trying to accomplish. I want to make the harsh, sliding/portamento, staccato sounds you hear on tracks by brony musicians like Scraton (DJ Pon3), Strach Attack, Undreamed Panic and the like. I'm attaching a snippet of one of Scratons tracks, just to give you an idea of what I'm referring to. I am looking into getting Serum (I've played around with it and it seems like a very capable synth VST... also I heard some brony musicians swear by it at BronyCon '17 ), but in the meantime I want to learn just what it is that I need to understand about sound design to get to where I want to go... Sorry for the lengthy post. I just would really like to make some progress on figuring this stuff out! scraton-snippet.mp3
  3. What is the name of the super-strong pony that lifted the school house to get her ball?
  4. It took me 5 years to realize that the reason Rainbow's flying is all messed up is because her wings were upside-down and on her underside, instead of her back. :-P Also, I think with everything going on politically in recent years, this episode is an excellent example to show to racists and islamophobes. Don't judge a book by it's cover.
  5. Did anyone notice the reference to "Plank" from Ed, Edd, and Eddy when Rarity and Fluttershy return to Carousel Boutique?
  6. Can I postulate that their cutie marks represent a sort of "half of the picture"? For example, in their first appearance they offer what seems like a great deal to Ponyville. But to the Apple family, it would have a negative impact on their bottom line. There is a catch to their offer - how the profits would be split. Likewise, in their second appearance, they are selling a tonic that seems to good to be true - because it is. Again, there is more to the story than meets the eye. Which is why I think their cutie marks represent half of the picture. On the one hand, you have an almost whole apple cutie mark - which could seem like a positive thing. And on the other hand, you have just one slice of apple, which by itself doesn't seem bad, but when you realize the other half of the picture is a mostly whole apple... do you feel cheated? I wish I could express my theory better, but I feel like their cutie marks work in tandem to represent a situation where it is best to read the fine print.
  7. It had Vinyl Scratch in it so it is automatically good! Joking aside, I loved the formatting of this episode - the multiple interview sections used to make this like a reality TV episode, the real-time scenes were perfectly placed, and every character shined in their own way. My only complaint is that it felt a bit like Canterlot Boutique and The Gift of The Maud rolled into one - not a totally fresh take on things, but I think the format of the episode more than makes up for the similarities.
  8. Did anyone notice that one of the portraits seen in Castle Mane-ia is the same portrait that Rarity bumped into in MMMystery on the Friendship Express? I just noticed this and wondered if there was any significance to it.
  9. Jack of all trades, master of none. I play guitar, violin, drums, bass, keyboard/piano, banjo, harmonica, ukelele and sing. But if I had to say where I actually "play" an instrument vs. knowing just enough to pick it up and noodle around, I would have to say guitar is my main instrument. But I always considered "playing" an instrument to be relative. It all depends on what you are trying to accomplish. I think it depends. Are you just crossfading between tracks, or are you scratching, making a conscious effort to beat match stuff, etc. DJing is not easy by any means, but unless you are putting some kind of artistic flair into I don't think it would qualify as playing an instrument.
  10. I am presently suffering from depression (not sure if it is bad enough to be medicated yet), I also suffer from the occasional panic attack. I guess in the strictest terms of what defines a "mental" illness, then yes. I do. For anybody struggling with your own brain, I hope you are able to get some help (via chemical intervention or other means). Even with our issues, we are stronger than we give ourselves credit for!
  11. I don't dislike him. He's not my favorite either. He felt like a toy placement in the first movie, and in the second one he was kind of a jerk, but by the third movie they succeeded in making his awkward Twilight obsession funny. Even Derpy tried to console the poor guy!
  12. Apparently a couple people caught this before me... and went into much greater detail... http://dr-dippy.deviantart.com/art/Twilight-s-Lecture-The-Meaning-of-Life-296063480
  13. So, I just noticed this. Did anyone else catch the Hitchiker's Guide To The Galaxy reference?
  14. I just hope the rapid approach of a new season doesn't mean they rushed through creating this season. I'm a little bit apprehensive.
  15. Friends, family, my cats, and the knowledge that Lena Hall would be performing at Ponycon NYC in a few weeks!
