  1. Once upon a time, there was this prick named PrymeStriker. He hated an episode called "Rainbow Falls". He's dead now. The End. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Well, I see we've redecorated around here. I don't like it. It means I have to reformat my series accordingly. And when every space is a double space, and I use a lot of spaces, this is an immeasurable travesty. Let's jump right into the boiling stew, shall we? Another Friday, another shit episode of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. This is "Pinkie Pride". This episode opens up with a party in what appears to be Appleloosa as we see all the Buffalo and all the ponies dancing around in a celebration of...whatever. The camera pans out to sh- ............... ............................................Mkay, so, let me rephrase my statement. Another friday, another SUPER EPIC AMAZING HOLY FUCKBALLS EPISODE OF MY LITTLE PONY: FRIENDSHIP IS MAGIC. IT'S WEIRD FUCKING AL YANKOVIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You guys don't understand. Weird Al Yankovic makes everything he's in ten times better. When he starred as Wreck-Gar in Transformers Animated, the episodes became ten times better. And have you seen his fake interviews with celebrities? A motherfucking genius, that guy. Yet, here he is, playing a pony in Friendship is Magic. A bit of a downgrade, I'd say, but nevertheless entertaining. Fun times are abound. Once Yankovic's character, Cheese Sandwich, receives some kind of spastic signal, he realizes that the next party to be thrown is in Ponyville. After the "Skip Intro" button makes me shit egg yolks, we show up in Ponyville where Pinkie Pie is doing another grand musical number about how she's planning a party for Rainbow Dash. Once the song is over, we learn that today is Rainbow Dash's birthday! Hooray, I get to regret the day this fucking character was born! What a grand old time. Curiously, she also says that today is not only her birthday, but the anniversary of when she moved to Ponyville. Err, what? Who decides, on their birthday, to just move to a completely new town? Who the hell throws a party for the anniversary of them moving to said town? And why the fuck is this part of the setup? It would've been fine as just Dash's birthday, but they had to throw a monkey wrench into the burning asshole of this episode. Speaking of monkey wrenches, that's when Cheese Sandwich shows up to show Pinkie Pie up with the "Super Duper Party Pony" song. Let the jizzing commence! So while Cheese Sandwich strokes Rainbow Dash's insufferable ego, Pinkie Pie falls into another crippling depression. There's even this scene right after the song where when Rainbow Dash tells Pinkie that she means "no offense", she licks her own tears and pulls out a fake smile. Damn, nigga, that's pretty fucked up, if I do say so myself, Mr. Hangs-People-By-Their-Dicks-And-Watches-Them-Swing-Into-Pits-Of-Molten-Lava. Later, while Cheese Sandwich is planning Rainbow Dash's execution, Twilight stops by Pinkie Pie's place to see if she's alright. 'Cause we all know what happened last time Pinkie felt excluded. She made friends with rocks and shit. But nay, Pinkie Pie expresses a "perfect" attitude, even though she soon laments that since Cheese Sandwich is the best party planner in the world, maybe she's not. Speaking of laments, there's another song about Pinkie Pie's nosedive into dispair. See, this is how you pace a musical episode. Why the fuck can't any other episode get this shit right? It's about time we got a decent one, too, and the fact that it's a Pinkie Pie centric episode guest starring Weird Al, just adds 9,000 more gallons of creamy sperm. In the number, when Pinkie Pie looks at pictures from parties past such as the Royal Wedding, and Twilight's "Welcome to Ponyville" shindig, she realizes "fuck this shit" and decides to get back out there and show her stuff. How, you might ask? By challenging Cheese Sandwich to a goof off. AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW SHIT IS ABOUT TO GO DOWN TODAY MOTHERFI am getting way too excited over this children's show. Yeah, so if you haven't guessed it, the comedy in this episode supersedes any previous Pinkie Pie episode. There's this excellent setup that nobody aside from Pinkie Pie and Cheese Sandwich know what a "goof-off" is, yet in the next scene Twilight has a rule book for it. The goof-off commences through another song, and yes, if you need a refresher, I recommend you watch all the songs I've linked all the way through. However, once the goof-off goes a-rye and Pinkie Pie sees Rainbow Dash in distress, her eyes gl- .....OH SHIT YES, THIS IS A KEY EPISODE. BUT NOT JUST ANY KEY EPISODE, A GOOD KEY EPISODE. *ahem*.............her eyes glow as she realizes that she should just forfeit and relinquish planning of Dash's party to Cheese Sandwich. Subsequently, she proceeds to....move out of Ponyville??......but not before all her friends come to apologize for being overtly indulgent in Cheese Sandwich's bullshit. However, Pinkie Pie admits that she let her pride get in the way of Rainbow Dash's happiness. Suddenly, Cheese Sandwich shows up to say that he was just trying to impress Pinkie Pie, because the pony who got him interested in party planning way back in the days when the earth was flat and God was real, was Pinkie Pie herself. The feels are reals. Must spend rest of day regaining testicles. So they indeed join forces and put together the biggest, glorious, most seizure-inducing, vomit-promoting, ultra druggy, super buzzed-out, makes-you-wanna-have-sex-with-a-goat, drunk-as-fuck, ultramegazord sen kai bonanza since the previous biggest, glorious, most seizure-inducing, vomit-promoting, ultra druggy, super buzzed-out, makes-you-wanna-have-sex-with-a-goat, drunk-as-fuck, ultramegazord sen kai bonanza. As we see Pinkie Pie writing in her journal, Cheese interrupts her to give her Boneless. And the fanfics and endless dick jokes were sent spiraling out of control! Finally, Cheese walks into the sunset with Boneless 2, looking forward to "another town, another party". Pinkie Pie comments that she never did get that pony's name, which would've been a great joke if left there, but the others had to yell "Cheese Sandwich!" and force Pinkie Pie to say "Oh yeah". I also hear that's a reference to something, but I don't give ten fucks and a dangling green shit. There he goes. The messiah, the legend, Debbie Harry. And so concludes "Pinkie Pride". ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- This.....is the best episode of season four so far. I mean, what else can be said that hasn't been said about the best episodes of the series? Pinkie Pie's character development here is probably the best example of such since "Party of One". The songs are all entertaining and don't clutter the pacing whatsoever, and the comedy reaches the highest levels of hilarity thanks to Weird Al's gift to the world, which was the day he was born. There are a few blips here and there in this episode, like the fact that they merged Rainbow Dash's anniversary of moving to Ponyville with her birthday just to make this bash seem "more important", and the half a second that Pinkie Pie was going to move away from Ponyville, but all of those are minuscule in the epic saga that is "Pinkie Pride". So does it come at any surprise what numeric rating this episode is about to receive? You guessed it, a 10/10. .....Wait a minute.... ......Nope, that's right. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Well, what a great episode that was. Shame it's surrounded by shit episodes, but I'm certainly over "Rainbow Falls" now. I wonder what follows this up. .......................................OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUOh, wait, I already reviewed this. Right, I still hate "Simple Ways", and even though it's been upgraded to a 2/10 ala my "Revoking Opinion on Simple Ways" editorial, and my original "Simple Ways" review is a bit cluttered due to it being the first review I've ever done, it's still royal piece of shit. Great, I get to skip an episode for the first time in two years. This day just gets better and better. So what episode comes after "Simple Ways"? .......................................OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCKMEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
  2. Did anyone else watch Pinkie Pride and not enjoy it nearly as much as 95% of bronies? All I ever see are great things about this episode. Great guest star. Great moral. Great jokes. Great Pinkie Pie Characterization. Great Songs. Etc. I on the other hand disliked this episode. I can literally count how many episodes I disliked on one hand. There are certainly some meh episodes, but they were mostly still enjoyable. I liked Princess Spike more than Pinkie Pride, but maybe that was because Cadence (best princess) was in it. I rarely truly dislike an episode of this show. So you can imagine my suprise when one of my arguably least favorite episodes was loved by so many. I think it was a combination of high expectations, hype, my least favorite pony (at the time at least), and over all ridiculouses of the episode. I saw NOTHING but good things about this episode before I watched it. So I watched it expecting to be wowed like the 1969 lunar landing, and I was dissapointed. Pinkie Pie was even more nonsensical in this episode. The guest VA was like a rule 63 Pinkie (and not the good kind). I dont even remember the moral. The jokes weren't clever, they were childish slapstick. Pinkie's Friends abandoned her first chance, and RD had the nerve to tell Pinkie to her face she wasnt good enough. I had MMC déjà vu with all those songs, Pinkie's eye swirl realization was definately the weakest (oh no RD's not laughing at our cringeworthy competition, noooo). Cheese Sandwich gave up his most cherished possesion like he was lending Pinkie a 1$ to buy gum at the check-out. Do I need to say more? Why do people like this episode? Do you like Pinkie Pride? Tell me what you think in the comm... Oh wait not Youtube. Put a post below about what you thought of Pinkie Pride, whether you liked it, disliked it, or it was meh, as well as what you thought of my points if you are so inclined.
  3. Do any of you have an episode that just didn't click for you, but in multiple places around the site, you see people praising it? Or Vice Versa, when you really liked an episode and it seems the popular opinion is unfavorable? My example would be Pinkie Pride, i just thought this episode wasn't all that good, some cheesy western guy (pun intended) who throws parties, all of pinkies friends abandon her, then she leaves and comes back and all is happy. One of my least favorites definitely. Or flipping it around, it seems an unpopular episode is Look before you sleep, but i really liked the interactions between the two, and it felt like this is the episode they truly became friends So what do you guys think? Do you have any unpopular favorites or popular least favorites?
  4. In he episode Pinkie Pride, we learn that Rainbow Dash moved to Ponyville on her birthday. Surely there had to be a reason. Why do you guys think that Rainbow Dash moved to Ponyville on her birthday?
  5. Who do you think is the better PARTY PONY?? Pinkie Pie Or Cheese Sandwich give me your reasons in why you think so For me it's definitely Cheese!! Oh, no I messed up the tittle oh, well
  6. Hello everypony! Finally, there's my very first season 4 remix! Make a wish, one of my favorites songs of the season so far! Well, let's see if I can put a dailymotion video here... http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x1mmwht_my-little-pony-friendship-is-magic-make-a-wish-ricardo-f-psytrance-remix_music Just click on the link if there's not player (I think DM doesn't work for forums...) So yeah, hope you all enjoy, feel free to comment!
  7. This was something I found a little unusual. Given her reaction to Maud saying she's not into "winning", thus not into competing, as well as her own love of racing and being the best, you'd think that she would be ecstatic and happy about two ponies essentially fighting over her and continual outdoing themselves to impress her. If you watch throughout the competition she's smiling away and enjoying herself anyway up until the party tank and gigantic pinata bits. Now, I'm not saying it was out of character. She showed earlier she was a little uncomfortable with Pinkie's overbearing attitude towards parties, and since someone had to lose that would mean she would lose have of her party making team. She wanted to have both of them working together to make her party the best. And lastly, she may just have times, like her birthday, where she just wants to chill, and thus a competition isn't high on the list of things she wants for it. So, thoughts?
  8. With some out there irritated with Pinkie Pie in "Filli Vanilli", as established by Gilda the fastest way to get you to villain status is to make Fluttershy cry, my friends raised an interesting point. Considering that two episodes ago, in "Pinkie Pride", she learned she should back off when her friends are not having fun, would this episode have been far better placed after Filli Vanilli? Would it have made a difference in how Pinkie Pie was viewed during "Filli Vanilli". or perhaps put her actions in context with "Pinkie Pride" following it, and making "Filli Vanilli" a step to the lesson?
  9. How did I miss all that? Not only are Twinkleshine and filly Cheeralee there, but so the fillies Bon Bon, Lyra, Flitter, Cloud Chaser, and... ... Also, how is there an adult and filly Colgate at that party? The work of Dr. Whooves, no doubt.
  10. My new and yet *original* piece of a music track. This one was a bit rushed after the episode was aired.. *balloon effects are canon!!* Help with a genre? BPM: 175 LIMIT: 2:15 Some more info are available on the video's description plus a free download link!!
  11. I guess this could be considered a review, but this is honestly gonna be more fanboying then reviewing since I didn't find anything majorly wrong with the episode. All right fanboying in 3.2.1 THAT WAS SO AWESOME, I MEAN REALLY. Now that that's over time to explain why Pinkie Pride is the best episode of season 4 1. Pinkie Pie's characterization: Throughout season 4, Pinkie hasn't really done much outside of being a gag character with a few exceptions like Pinkie Apple Pie. In this episode, she was characterized perfectly. She actually had depth outside of being a gag character. She also had some great development and got her key (seriously a rubber chicken is so fitting for her). 2. Cheese Sandwich: Weird Al did an excellent performance a party pony who steals Pinkie's spotlight. The episode didn't go the easy route and just made him an antagonist but had a great plot twist of him being inspired to throw parties by Pinkie. It was such an excellent plot twist 3: The songs: The songs were excellent. they each flowed well with the episode. It's hard to pick a favorite, they were all so amazing, the song Pinkie sung in the beginning was very reminiscent of the beginning song in Beauty and the Beast, there was a sad song with Pinkie singing about how she's always thrown parties with nice callbacks to earlier episodes kind of like in Magical Mystery Cure that had amazing animation, and the other songs were excellent. Also the live action sequence with Gummy and Boneless was amazing and reminded me of an early Spongebob episode. So yeah new favorite episode in season 4, new favorite Pinkie Pie episode, and one of my favorite episodes in season 4, I'm giving this episode a 10/10, no that's not enough, how about an 11/10, nah still not enough to how awesome it is, I know, Final score: 12/10
  12. Well fillies and colts, it looks like I have a new favorite episode. Party of One has been knocked down to #2. Party of One was about Pinkie Pie's existential crises when she believes her friends have rejected her as friend and party pony. Well, this episode had that exact same basic premise, but with the schizophrenic party of inanimate objects replaced with Pinkie competing against "Weird Al" Yankovic. Let me repeat that last part with greater emphases: FUCKING WEIRD AL!!! Can we just let that sink in? "Weird Al" Yankovic....was on My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. And it was a musical episode at that. The hyped Pinkie Pie musical episode. It's really is an episode plucked straight from my fondest dreams. I have the exact same dream every night. Right down to the giant rainbow turd. First of all, let me just express how much I frickin' love Weird Al. I wouldn't say I grew up on him, but he was always creeping around in the background of my youth. I caught as a kid while it briefly aired Saturday mornings on CBS, immediately attracted to his goofiness. During my early teen years when I was infatuated with Avril Lavigne, I heard his parody of Complicated and found no end to annoying my sister with it. In 2006, his major hit helped influence my acceptance of myself as nerdy and odd from the inside-out, when it seemed like it was just at turning point in our culture when being a "nerd" was "cool". Not something of which to be ashamed, but a title to wear as a badge of honor. I ended up buying that album Straight Outta Lynwood and I've enjoyed Weird Al's novelty music and comedy ever since. Movie recommendation: UHF. Ultra High Friendship Many Weird Al fans (Al-oholics?) likely have similar stories, but even among casual people he has this inherent likeability, even if you don't find him particularly funny. Being such a lighthearted clown with strong appeal to kids really helps him fit right at home in the world of My Little Pony, while his comedic spin on popular music and his status as an OG nerd also greatly suits the "brony" title and fandom. Could this be a match made in Heaven? "If pony Weird Al did not exist, it would be necessary for us to invent him." - Voltaire Enter Cheese Sandwich. It's as if Weird Al's DNA was spliced with a pony, a smidgen of Clint Eastwood (as a cowboy, not the crazy old kook who talks to empty chairs, although he could've used that skit to further one-up Pinkie Pie), and a literal cheese sandwich. Fitting for both My Little Pony's tradition of assigning ridiculous themes to ponies, and as an allusion to Al's early obsession with food. Specifically cheese, which for some reason is considered the edible epitome of quasi-weirdness, although my pals at Illogicopedia protest this. To top it off, Cheese Sandwich is a male counterpart to Pinkie Pie, the eccentric, reality-bending party pony known to play ten polka instruments at once. Yes, this is the best possible angle they could've took to justify Weird Al on MLP. And yet, while having "Weird Al" Yankovic as a guest star is a big deal, his presence didn't steal the show. They easily could've written this exact episode around the premise of Pinkie Pie having a competing party pony. This isn't so much "the Weird Al episode" as it is "Pinkie Pie, featuring Weird Al". Cheese Sandwich may be all the rage in Ponyville, but Pinkie's struggle with the feeling of inadequacy is the true heart of the story. And what a Pinkie episode it was. In my review of Pinkie Apple Pie, I mentioned how disappointed I was with Pinkie, finding her far more annoying than amusing. In fact, this whole season has felt like an exercise in Flanderization and character regression. She started to become more mature after Baby Cakes, but now she's doodling in a coloring book and playing an organ like a child with a plastic piano. And that squealing voice! AGH! To my relief and ecstasy, this one hit all the correct notes. She was appropriately crazy, excited without piercing my ears, and she had moments of depression that evoked real emotion from me. This is the correct way to do Pinkie Pie. YAY!! We follow Pinkie suffer the most universal of griefs: Realizing someone else is superior in what makes you you. Why even try, ya know? This was the first time MLP has touched on the premise of two ponies having the exact same special talent. (All the exiled Time Lords unaddressed.) A pony's natural talent prescribes their place in the given area's division of labor. However, Cheese is a universal loner, with a life of experience spanning all over Equestria. Not so much throwing a wrench in the system, but making Pinkie Pie obsolete. When Cheese Sandwich comes to town and steal's her role as party planner for Rainbow Dash's "birth-iversary" (really Amy?), she's knocked down the second place as the quintessential party equine. To make matters worse, her friends seem to have abandoned her - again. Whereas Pinkie's state of sadness in Party of One was brief with a moment of full mane deflation followed by insanity and anger, this had a mild deflation, but more emphasis on depression and self-realization. This stallion is a professional party planner, and all you have is balloons and a piddly-ass banner. Oh, and a cannon. How adorable. "Knock knock." "Who's there?" "A BIG ASS TANK!" Even beyond the novelty of "hurr hurr ponified Weird Al", Cheese Sandwich is now one of my favorite supporting characters. He's introduced as a serious Western figure, but, c'mon, we know that's Al under there. They don't even humor us for 30 seconds before he gets his 'cheesy sense' moment and we're all, "Mmm-hmm." Later in Ponyville, he milks this "serious cowboy" schtick for his introductory monologue, going all the way with a lame bait-and-switch, "Oh, I don't think so." *GASP!* "I KNOW SO!" Only then through the power of polka could his true form be summoned. As a musical episode, this vastly exceeded Magical Mystery Cure. Putting all the controversy aside, that episode straddled the line between so-so and suck. While the first half had three good songs out the four, Alicorn Hell had absolute zilch. Fortunately, all the songs in this one worked and were perfectly distributed. This opening song ' ' was purposely molded after 'Belle' from the opening of Beauty and the Beast, with everyone in town singing. A lot of people liked Diamond Tiara singing and throwing a scrap of approval within her brattiness. I personally liked Mr. and Mrs. Cake. The second one 'The Super Duper Party Pony' where we introduce Cheese Sandwich is a polka style tailor made for Weird Al. We get to see Cheese as a colt, with a rounder mane perm and big glasses like Al's trademarked look for decades. "Hey, good looking. Want some mayonnaise?" was the one time I chuckled out loud. This party polka sets the stage for silliness, yet it ends by turning bittersweet with Pinkie asking, "But what about the super party pony named Pinkiiie?" THE FEELS! . It's the sad part. Pinkie trying to incorporate her special talent into other jobs was amusing. I wonder if the surgeon scene was a reference to Weird Al's ' '. It's also been suggested the possibility that there may have been a subtle fandom nod to the infamous gorefic "Cupcakes", seeing as Pinkie offers a Mane 6 color-striped cupcake to the head surgeon. I say split the difference and make a creepypasta of Pinkamena and Cheese Sandwich. That something you don't see very often. Weird Al gore. One thing that irked me was when Pinkie used the interlude to explain the previous episodes as featured on her party wall of fame. Not only did it hurt the mood, wasn't it kind of hacky writing? Even in the context of her talking to herself, she wouldn't narrate exactly like this. It feels as if they were treating us, the audience, as if we're stupid. For the kids at home for whom this was intended, which is a bit condescending. Well, okay, children under five watch it, but still. I realize most kids are not as obsessively and religiously devoted to all the episodes and every last painful, excruciating detail of the show as we are, but they do air reruns everyday, so maybe we could've managed without this walkthrough. Be that as it may, her voice sounded very cute with this cringey narration, and I did like this trip with the Ghost of Pinkie Past. Pinkie going out on the balcony and looks over Ponyville was really beautiful, invoking more Disney. This is followed by sad Pinkie turning in VENGEFUL PINKIE! An exclusive preview clip from MisterDavey's next video. Leap frogging over THE GOOF OFF!! to Pinkie's epiphany moment when she realizes she's failed Rainbow and decides to leave town. All her friends apologize for being neglectful of her...again...and she admits her pride ruined everything. Then comes Cheese to being liar. I swear this must be the first serious, non-humorous song I've ever heard Weird Al sing. We see filly Derpy, a quick freeze-frame shot of filly Colgate wearing braces (nice), filly Cheerile and a grown Berry Punch who apparently keeps like a fine wine. Oh hey, and now the map of Equestria is canon. Cheese and Pinkie reprise 'Pinkie the Party Planner' when they learn a lesson about working together blah blah blah PARTY TIME. Holy hell, this party is so awesome it has a Rainbow Dash Macy's balloon. The last song, ' ', was this electro-pop thing like the ones from Equestria Girls. It's pretty nice, upbeat and short. That's really all I can say. This scene speak for itself: I've reviewed the rest, now time for the best... Remember when I said 'Apples to the Core' was the cheeriest song this show has ever done? Well that song is a dead pet compared to this one. When I stand in front of the personification of Eternity, and he asks me what was the purest expression of happiness, I'll answer, "The Goof Off." I mean, everything about it makes you smile. Pinkie throwing cupcakes in Rainbow's mouth and blowing bubbles. Cheese playing accordion on a giant wheel of cheese, manipulating Rainbow's face and oh God, those are cheese shoes. The combined powers of Pinkie Pie and Weird Al are so magnificent we get a live-action dancing rubber chicken and a real world Gummy who still could not give enough of a fuck to do anything in light of this strange new dimension. The entire mitzvah escalates in exuberance until we have Pinkie singing in Spanish on top of giant birthday cake piñata. The song she sings, a traditional Mexican tune, translates to: "Hit it, hit it, hit it / Don't lose your aim / Because if you lose it / You lose the way!" This was apparently supposed to allude to Pinkie missing the mark in her mission and her following epiphany. Speaking of gleeful songs, I love when Cheese starts singing a polka cover of "Smile, Smile, Smile", the most Weird Al-esque thing of the entire episode. Congratulations, Pinkie. You've finally made it as a musician! Actually, the fact that she was pissed itself was a joke. For the sake of good faith, Weird Al always asks the artists he parodies for permission before spoofing their songs. In this instance, Cheese made her angry by downright stealing her song. Taken to a more meta level (as I always do), we could find a parallel to the conflict between Weird Al and Coolio. Due to a miscommunication, Al wrote ' ', a parody of ' ', without permission, leaving Coolio not exactly thrilled. And who have we established comes from a background that is a living parody of the Amish life? Keeping within the context of the show, we should look back to The Cutie Mark Chronicles, the episode is notable for exploring MLP's theme of destiny. We learned that Pinkie Pie became the fun-spreading party pony thanks to Rainbow Dash, and now we know Cheese Sandwich himself was influenced by Pinkie. Coming full circle, here he is throwing a party for Rainbow with the pony who inspired him. He even gave Pinkie Boneless back (now at Chili's!), which will come into play when she opens the Tree of Harmony box. On that note, there's one flaw in this episode that may or may not be considered a plot hole: Since when does Rainbow Dash live in Ponyville? Cloudsdale can easily be rationalized as a party of Ponyville, and I suppose her family moved to Cloudsdale when she was a filly. Yet, more importantly, wouldn't her birthday have always coincided with the day of this move? Why is it suddenly a big deal this year? Could it be some kind of calendar overlap, like when the first day of Hanukkah fell on Thanksgiving? Or is this overlap a consequence of counting birthdays by "horse years"? (I challenge you come up with explanations that are both satisfactory and more badass than those.) This set-up doesn't make sense to me. Couldn't they have come up with a better reason for this birthday to be extra special that doesn't make my head hurt? Then again, I've learned to accept the fact that ponies have names given to them at birth by their parents that match their cutie marks years before they earn said cutie marks. I'll simply invoke the MST3K Mantra and call it a night. On last thing I'll touch on that many viewers noticed was that Pinkie has a new sister not featured in The Cutie Mark Chronicles, supposedly to keep in line with 'Pinkie Pie And The Rockin Ponypalooza Party'. There definitely will be more light on this mystery in the upcoming episode in which Pinkie's sisters come to Ponyville, the next one I'm strongly looking forward to. As for the episode at hand, it was more than satisfactory. It was..."epiiic?" Good songs, great character work with Pinkie, the best possible guest star for this show, a rubber chicken. My new favorite episode, I'll be watching it alongside Party of One when my own birthday rolls around. I'll end this review with the Brony Polka, a testament to what can result from the collision of Weird Al and bronies. A polka medley of popular original fan songs, creating a self-referential style parody of "Weird Al" Yankovic. Because this fandom hasn't nearly reached the summit of irony and meta. We need to crank out more inspiration in this vein while we wait for Al's appearance at BronyCon. *knocks on wood* What can you do? Dare to be derpy!
  13. Sometimes I like to just drop a grenade and run away. This is one of those times. So, I think we're all agreed that "Pinkie Pride" was a laughapalooza of random, whacky zaniness and just plain 110% unadulterated awesome, no? Pretty much every second of it was unpredictable, agreed? Well, last night I'm pretty sure I found the biggest "what the buck" moment of the entire episode, no joke, and it will probably surprise most of you, so brace yourselves for what I'm about to tell you. *deep breath* Pinkie Pie has a third sister. No, you didn't misread that, and I'm not yanking your chain, I'm telling ya'll there's a third Pie sister, cross my heart, hope to fly, stick a cupcake in my eye! Don't believe me? Well then, take a gander at this... Up until now, this has been the extent of Pinkie's family as far as we know: Ya got Pinkie Pie, Inkie Pie, Blinkie Pie, Cloudy Quartz (Pinkie's mom), and Igneous Rock (Pinkie's dad). HOWEVER, in the latest episode, right in the middle of the song "Pinkie's Lament" (if you want to confirm this I believe you can see the photo at the 10:00 mark), we saw a family photo of Pinkie and her family at the first party she ever held. The whole family was there... AS WELL AS THIS FILLY IN THE BOTTOM RIGHT HAND CORNER!!!!!!!!!!! This is quite obviously not Inkie or Blinkie, they're both quite clearly in the photograph along with Pinkie, her mom, and her dad. Soooooo... WHO THE BUCK IS THIS?!?! I shared this with DashForever last night while we were chatting on Skype, and he was equally perplexed. Who is she??? Is she a cousin, or is she really the lost Pie sister we've never seen nor heard of? What happened to her? Why have we never heard of her? Are there dark secrets and skeletons buried in our dear Pinkie's closet? Did Pinkie repress the memory of her third sister? Is this Pie sister a changeling? A figment of Pinkie's imagination? Her dark alter-ego? Or is this simply retconning of the absolutely most absurd kind on DHX's part? Whatever the case, I don't think there's any denying that this is kind of a big deal, even if it only showed up in the episode for about five seconds. This character did not exist AT ALL until yesterday in MLP canon, but as far as I can tell the evidence now points to one thing and one thing only: that she's supposed to be related to Pinkie Pie in some way, shape, or form, most likely as a sister. What's her name? Stinkie Pie, Drinky Pie, Linky Pie, We-Don't-Care-Enough-To-Remember-You-When-We-Recall-Old-Memories-ie Pie? Will she show up in the future? The possibilities are endless, so go, go my minions, discuss this mind-blowing turn of events!!!!! Just how much of what you thought you knew are you now questioning as a result of this revelation? I'd like to know very much!
  14. The first thing I can't get over is this image, a screenshot taken from the episode "Pinkie Apple Pie." Second... Oh, I am super excited for the upcoming episode "Pinkie Pride." I really can't wait! >3< In case you haven't yet heard of this episode, click on the spoiler below:
  15. So, SDCC revealed that the upcoming episode Pinkie Pride is going to be a musical. How do you feel about this? Do you want another musical like Magical Mystery Cure? Do you think Weird Al is gonna sing? Would you like to hear some more Pinkie songs? I know I would. I'm pretty excited myself. The songs so far this season are really good IMO, so even more? Fantabulous!
