    when did 'special' become an insult?

    Since when did people start using 'special' as an insult?
  2. So during The Best Gift Ever Special, there's gonna be a Secret Santa thing going on between the Mane Six, Spike, and maybe Starlight, so in this blog we're gonna try to guess who is gonna be who's Secret Santa? Here's mine as an example: * Twilight Sparkle --> Pinkie Pie * Pinkie Pie --> Fluttershy * Fluttershy --> Rarity * Rarity --> Rainbow Dash * Rainbow Dash --> Spike * Spike --> Applejack * Applejack --> Twilight Sparkle If adding Starlight in it then: * Rarity --> Starlight Glimmer * Starlight Glimmer --> Rainbow Dash So this is my guess! It's not very likely to all of them right, but let's see if we could get some of them right! So what's your guesses? Try to keep it random! Try to do pairings that don't interact alot because that's more likely to happen!
  3. Do you want the mane 6 to find their special someponies like Twilight getting together with Flash Century or Cheese Sandwich getting together with Pinkie Pie or do you want the mane 6 to stay single
  4. Okay so I have a new OC, she's a Pegasus and I haven't worked out her colour scheme yet that will come later, but i cant think of a special talent for her I've wanted to call her firefly but if it conflicts too much with the talent then it can be changed. Also I don't want her to be a wonderbolt because i think that's a bit generic I'm sure there's plenty of wonder bolt OC's out there i would like to be a little more original. Every piece of feedback is appreciated thank you. i was thinking of a fire fighter because she's quite punk/rocker

  9. Earth ponies have strength, Pegasi have flight and Unicorns have magic, so what talent do crystal ponies have? I've noticed that all the crystal ponies I've seen are basic ponies ( earth pony model). So is there talent strength? or something completely different?
  10. Hello! if somepony gave you a link to this blog then you are in the right place, there's a message that this person or a group of person decided to gave you for a reason. i decided to make a series about special someponies to express my opinion and my own personal advise, with that in mind lets get started. Have you feel that you are never gonna get a girlfriend/boyfriend because you think you are ugly, with bad breath, shy or with non attractive interests? Let me tell you that is completly understandable, is like being nervous if you are gonna get hired in a job, even if you fulfill the requirements you always have to look the bad things about yourself and try to correct them, (or not and give up finding love) and dont tell me "hey Balareth! is not the same thing! a job than love" well, is a example am using because the X factor is nervousism. Tell me why do you think that you dont have a chance with the pretty girl of the Forums, or near your house? she have a boyfriend that maybe good looking, rich and popular but let me tell you is not enough to make happy a girl. To all boys in the audience lets make an excercise: i want you to imagine that you are a pretty girl, imagine that your hair is long, you have a pretty figure and boys are mad about you, well, lets say "persons" you have persons that are crazy for you. Is not easy to be a pretty girl, you have to keep an image to the rest of the persons, be the most popular, imagine this: you have to wear the expensive and fashion clothes, you have to use the best accesories like cellphones, a car, a nice purse etc. you have to always have makeup to look more pretty that already you are, your moves, your manners all must be perfect to be popular and attract all persons and because it feels so cool (and there's nothing wrong about it because we are humans and as such ALL persons without esception want to be popular) Now why i bring you to this excercise? because you need to understand that a girl's life is being difficult to add more troubles like a bad boyfriend. So you the girl need love, and this is when the magic happens, once they feel happy you just need love, and for that being a pretty girl you can pick any of the boys that is after you, is simply to pick but hey! there's something special about it, since your life is already being difficult you need some understanding, care, something for real, you may have a lot of guys after you but you need someone that knows you deeper so you feel confident, safe and free, to not be judged and somepony that love you for who you are, the person, not the look. there shall be girls that may like the good looking rich boy but it doesnt really mean anything if he is a j*rk, there'll be a few girls that doesnt care if the boy doesnt behave or have strange habits, he is just another accesory of their own perfection but the rest of the girls wants something real, so they can find someone that if he is not a model, knows how to listen and understand, you see when you want some love you gotta understand that you are not gonna satisfy YOUR need, but also you must be ready to satisfy the girl's need as well, everypony wants to love and be loved, i understand but i want you to remember this when you talk to a crush, it doesnt matter how you look, its all about how you treat her, they deserve to be respected, cared, loved, listened and likewise. if you do that you will have no problems to find your special somepony. Something i noticed, is that some people i know doesnt know how to pick up girls, me? am not a professional seductor or whatever, but there's obvious rules, allow me to tell you a personal story: i started an account on another page about bronies, i make all my profile BUT i didnt complete as well, then i received a PM from a guy saying "h-hi..." then i said "hello! how are you? am very happy with your visit!" then he did this: *kiss* I love you so much, i want you to be my special somepony and i was like *...Ok...* then he continue with kisses and cuddlings until he ask me "but you are a girl right" and i was like "aaaahhhmmmnope" poor guy... he was obviously embarrased and i said "is ok dude, just dont go that quick". what am saying that that you have to keep a balance to keep your love interested you cant just say "hiya! *kisses* how are you wanna be my special somepony?" and either "hello" because in both ways there's gonna be trouble, if a pretty girl is watching this entry (and theres's thousands here X3 ) your beauty is not always gonna help you, you may have more option to choose yes, but even so you need to choose wisely and is not easy and you know it! if you are a girl reading this let me ask you It never happened to you that you have a a group of guys with unique styles, good looking, with special talent and you have to choose one depite from the rest? have you not wanting to gather all their benefits and make just one perfect boyfriend? well like i said, girls are also having some difficulties choosing the man of their dreams and is not always like you dream, sometimes there are really honest, loyal, sweet boys but not good looking, so question is you prefer appereance than personality? leave me a comment with your answer Now going to picking you love, i noticed that some people just want love despite if the other person is interested or not or gonna abuse of your kindness, i know having a girlfriend/boyfriend must be really cool but come on! we are talking about your soulmate! you dont really need a handsome guy or a beautiful girl, you just need someone who understand you, thats all! if that person is good looking, cool! a person with good feelings and beatiful is a blessing, trust me, i know, but listen to my advise, dont let your emotions possess you, okay, you need a guy/girl but you must have a plan, something, your crush is cold, you are hot, is just a way to say that she/he is cool but you are desperate in a way, a cool head thinks better, control yourself, think what he/she likes, what words, interests, music all details, and those details are gonna worth to her/him. finally i would like to end this first part of this series of "about special someponies" with a quote i said in the Finding your Special somepony thread, try to not be shy, defeat shyness, it is the true enemy, the wolf with sheep outfit, is not a defense method, it is a evasive way of selfishness, if you reveal all about your likings the chances are gonna be less but the ones interested are gonna worth x100 more than a fake relationship with mask and lies only to win a pretty girl/boy. if this you like this entry please comment, is a way to receive a feedback, and let me know what are your thoughts, i dunno if you are agree or disagree! if you wanna open a debate, PM please

    Movies/TV Crossovers

    Now I'm not talking your crossover fanart, I'm talking actual crossovers that aired on TV. So the question is, what is your favorite crossover. It's only occasionally it happens but when it happens, I usually remember it. My favorite ones would probably be Jimmy/Timm Power hour. The two shows actually blend together pretty well despite the different art style. Honorable mention goes to The Grim Adventures of the KND. So discuss away!
  12. On augest 4 there is a marthon of mlp fim all episodes on the hub channel.
  13. I bought goat simulator a couple of days ago and today, it just went on special... :mlp-rannoy: this always happens to me, i wonder if it happens to anyone else here?
  14. I, for one, do think Valve is very good and thoughtful about their games, and I am a huge fan, but I just can't put my finger on what they do that makes them special. I play Team Fortress 2 and other games, and they always fill up my satisfactory meter. They are pretty much the gaming version of Pixar. But I don't know how, or why. I came up with the topic after hearing so much praise for the company. Do you have any idea?
  15. Okay, in just about every anime, there's just that one scene that stays with us. Sometimes, it may make us shed a few tears. Or maybe feel an abundant amount of joy. Or maybe, think about our own actions in our own life. For me, it was the scene in DBZ where Vegeta admits that Goku is better in him. This was a sign that Vegeta would turn out to be good. Yet, after the Majin Buu Saga was done, Goku and Vegeta were still rivals and still fought. But that one scene just completely touched me in a way that I can't describe. It made me think twice about being prideful in situations and thinking that I am perfect. Well, nobody is perfect in this world. Also, another scene that touched me was from Pokemon, when Lucario sacrificed itself to save Mew. Tears were running down my face in that scene, for I loved Lucario and didn't want him to die. Anyway, what scenes in anime touched you?
  16. This is something I like to thank DVD distributors for. VHS tapes can be pretty nostalgic, but not enough room for all the "behind-the-scenes" extras that discs offer! I find that Shout! Factory has done amazing jobs with extras and interviews for even the most obscure shows in existence! I absolutely love watching the interviews and other goodies that these people seem to go through all this trouble to include! Does anyone else like to watch any of this stuff, or is it just me?

    Ponies on Sesame Street

    You know, the Ponies have already taught all of us (not just children) about friendship; I’m certain many of you agree that they can help teach children many other things as well, on Sesame Street. I’m certain everybody here has watched Sesame Street, and perhaps you might remember all the celebrity’s that have appeared on Sesame Street. For example: Pee Wee Herman appears in “Put Down the Duckie”: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SMAixgo_zJ4 The Simpsons Appeared in “Monster in the Mirror”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PM6ya7wTb58 Here’s The Pink Panther on Sesame Street: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NTNdsIzEii0 Here’s Shari Lewis and Lamb Chop on Sesame Street: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n6JKinrhrfc Finally (I’m certain you get the point by now), here’s Luxo Jr. on Sesame Street: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e9ajy13-v9c Anyway, I think that the Ponies on Sesame Street would be a wonder thing to behold. I’ve already thought of a segment in which Pinkie Pie and Twilight Sparkle demonstrate the letter ‘D’. Also, perhaps one or more of the Ponies might cover a Sesame Street song (such as “I don’t want to live on the Moon”). Perhaps you can think of more Pony appearances on Sesame Street. Also, feel free to share any other thoughts you might have on Ponies on Sesame Street.
  18. There is set to be a new Powerpuff Girls special that will air on Cartoon Network on January 20th, 2013. People are hesitant since the special will have a different design of the three girls than before, poster here: This is actually official, especially since it was posted on the Cartoon Network Facebook page. So...opinions?
  19. Mr. and Mrs. Potato-Head are owned by Hasbro (but I know most of you already know that), and they have allowed Pixar to use the Potato-Heads in their “Toy Story” movies, shorts and specials for many years now. But imagine a “Toy Story” special where yet more Hasbro toys are added to the gang, The My Little Ponies. So, what do you think would happen when they “Toy Story” gang (Andy’s toys and Bonnie’s toys; and/or perhaps the toys at Sunnyside Daycare as well) meets the “mane 6”? Perhaps Pinkie Pie could play with Evil Emperor Zurg (annoying him), and then party hard with the bath toys. Fluttershy and Rex could could both scream in fright when they first meet face to face. Perhaps Mr. Potato head could become jealous. Imagine the Pizza Planet aliens wearing special glasses and hitting a turntable with Vinyl Scratch (yes, I know she’s not part of the “Mane 6”). Maybe in a fantasy, Rainbow Dash and Buzz Lightyear will have a race. And Applejack, Woody, Jessie and Bullseye will pal around in an old western fantasy. And of course, don’t forget about the Pixar eastereggs; perhaps Twilight Sparkle will read a book tall about “A-113”, and Spike will try to balance on the Pixar star ball. Now it’s your turn to be the writer: Tell us all what would happen if the Ponies come to “Toy Story”. What would you think of PIxar using the "Mane 6" in a "Toy Story" special?
  20. The year was 1993, and the Doctor was dead. Well, at least his career as TV's favorite time traveling space hobo was dead. Yes, despite BBC's assurance that the beloved series was merely "on hiatus", all the signs pointed to Doctor Who being cancelled. After decades of alien-fighting, running down corridors, and dubious fashion decisions, the only way fans would be able to experience new Doctor stories were through audio serials and books. History became legend. Legend became myth. And for four years, the Doctor passed out of all relevance. But every once in awhile, the fans would catch wind of a possible continuation or special or what have you. At one point, a video release centered around the Fourth Doctor was given serious consideration, but fell through. As the 30th anniversary approached, a draft made the rounds at the Beeb in which the Seventh Doctor reunites with the Brigadier to do epic, explode-y battle with the Cybermen, but for reasons unknown then, that was dropped. The "Dimensions in Time" special that sprung up in its place, however, looked even more awesome. All five of the living Doctors, working side by side to kick ass and take names! Even Tom Baker, who only appeared in the last Doctor team-up story, "The Five Doctors", in the form of stock footage from an unfinished serial and a wax dummy in the promotional photos. This is how Christopher Eccleston should be included in The Day of the Doctor. And the past iterations of the Doctor aren't the only ones returning for the fun; several of his beloved companions would also make appearances, along with a Who's who of classic Doctor Who monsters. After all this time, it appears Doctor Who was finally coming back, and even if it wasn't for long, at least it would have been a glorious final outing for the character and his universe. Plus, it was the centerpiece of that year's Children in Need program, so not only was the Doctor coming back, he was doing it to aid children! And then the skimpy 15 minute special aired and it was the worst thing ever Yes, worst than that. Okay, maybe not that bad. So yeah, it's disappointing and badly produced, but what makes it truly stand out is the bizarre creative decisions they decided to go with . Instead of just having the Doctors just meet up with each other and defeat some monsters or whatever, they have this weird plot device where the Rani (the only Time Lord villain they could manage to get a hold of) is screwing with time, causing the Doctor to switch between his various regenerations. Sort of interesting idea in theory (and maybe one I could see Moffat having some fun with, if he ever felt like just going stupid for a second), but weirdly executed here, and a definite disappointment in a special where the main draw is all the Doctors getting together. Not only that, but BBC mandated that the episode have something to do with Eastenders, the channel's most popular show at the time (hence the axing of that Cybermen story). That would be funky-in-a-bad-way enough, but it's handled as clumsily as it could possibly be. The plot will just derail for a moment to focus on a bunch of random people nobody who isn't a British person in 1993 cares about. Also, BBC couldn't work out a deal with Terry Nation, the creator of and owner of the rights to the Daleks, so the Nazi pepper pots of doom, arguably the most iconic and popular thing associated with Doctor Who, doesn't make an appearance. Poo. It's one of those things that approaches a level too nonsensical to describe in well formed sentences, so here it is, in all its 3D "glory". Wasn't that insane!? Anyway, random thoughts on this matter: - The little segway into the special featuring Jon Pertwee is pretty cool, but only because Pertwee himself is awesome. He could be done up like a scarecrow and he'd still be the coolest mother in the room. - Anybody else shit themselves in fear when Patrick Troughton's decapitated head floated past the screen? What, was stock footage or still images on a monitor too not-creepy enough for you people? You have to subject us to this Uncanny Valley horror in conjunction with the loss of brain cells we shall certainly receive? - So then the theme song plays and it sounds like electronic ass. And no, speeding up the Seventh Doctor's opening does not make it suck any less. Quite the contrary. - Good news, guys, the Fourth Doctor, arguably the most popular Doctor ever, is in the special! Unfortunately, he spends the whole special stuck in what appears to be Max Headroom's colon. Unsure how much of this was Tom Baker just being like "whatever" and how much of it was the producers just being buttheads. Favorite moment is 3:20, when you can see it dawn on Baker how utterly asinine this whole affair is as his soul enters the fetal position. - , because we needed to be reminded the Rani is a bad guy. The image of the Rani tossing the First and Second Doctors' heads down the giant galactic energy toilet expertly balances being tasteless and hilarious.- The fact that every wall-circle in the Rani's TARDIS contains a living creature is even funnier. I like the Time Lord's expression, he's all like "I may not like this, but I accept that this is the way things are." - "It clashes!" was actually kind of funny. You win this round, Nathan-Turner. - You know, if you're going to keep cutting to those Eastenders cast, could you at least give them something interesting to do other than say stuff like "We need to make some money"? I have no idea what goes down in early 90's Eastenders, but I'm guessing that isn't exactly riveting within that show's context either. - Gotta love that time travel effect utilized here. The whole "looks like an unintentional video glitch" thing really adds to the production. - I get why the Doctor is switching regenerations, but how is Ace changing into all the other companions? - Sarah Jane is always awesome to see again, though I'm not sure why she looks like she just ate a fire flower. - The Doctor doesn't so much solve a mystery or try and figure out what's going on so much as he just wanders around and recites variation of the same info over and over and over again. Adventure ho. - Dat camerawork, am I right?! 360 degrees, bitch! - The scene where the monsters attack the Doctor is just the silliest darn thing. A number of them somehow look even worst than when they were on the show, most of them appearing in windows and behind little walls like a bunch of muppets. And you gotta love that Time Lord standing there feeling inadequate next to all those monsters. "No, seriously guys, he'll look intimidating! See, I gave him a gun!" - Worst cliffhanger? Worst cliffhanger. I voted for Big Ron on name alone. - "I took back what I said about a genius operator being behind these time jumps!" - Wait, how does that ensuing confrontation work? The Rani has them cornered, and then the Doctor starts having a migraine, and then the Rani starts walking away, but when the Third Doctor appears, it's like he just pulled off this mind-blowing trick that changed the tide of the battle despite doing absolutely nothing. And then Liz just walks right up to the Rani, and they have a non-struggle, and then an Eastenders chick sort of touches her arm and she "lets Liz go", despite never appearing to have her. Thankfully, Captain Yates is there to save us from this confusing scene. - It's always nice to see the Brigadier, and it's cool having him meet the Sixth Doctor, which he never did in the series. - Did...did the Rani just sit in that pub and wait for Romana to walk past the door? And that old guy is totally cool with witnessing a possible assault and not doing anything. - So the Rani is attempting to build a time tunnel out of Leela clones so she can cross over from the East to the West, which will give her the power to control evolution. - Once again the day is saved, thanks to a bunch of cables, random terminals, and the Doctors chanting random gibberish about believing in Santa Claus or something! SO SATISFYING! So yeah, that's "Dimensions in Time" for you. And you people thought Moffat sucks? These guys were perfectly happy with this being the only intended Doctor Who television story for years. What a time to be alive, is all I'm sayin'. Now let's bleach this awfulness with a much better Doctor Who Children in Need special.
  21. So today I've been working on this Halloween special drum and bass song and I would like to know what you guys think of it and put all complaints down below, thanks!
  22. Well , This special item I made which I meant to post tomorrow but I had no time left to upload. So Yes, this is a bit tardy overdue what you wanna call this. but Enjoy it. If you want a background special, Please ask! (Click the image to see why this is special)

    Mirror's Edge Review

    NOTICE: SInce this is my first video game review as part of this series, I'd like to take a moment to tell you a few things you'll probably want to know. First of all, if I'm going to give away the ending or something I'll warn you and put it in Spoiler tags. The second thing is more obvious, which is that this series contains my opinion and thus I'm not claiming that you won't enjoy games I find bad, everybody's taste is different. ___________ Alright, so today I'm going to be reviewing Mirror's Edge. For those who don't know what the game is about, basically it's a game about parkour and combat. Here is the E3 Demo, to help those who don't know understand what the game is like. __________________ Gameplay: This is Mirror's Edge's strong point, the gameplay. The maneuvering is fun, the combat is intuitive and the game feels great. For example, the fact that enemies can actually block your attacks if you just button mash makes strategy required. Disarming an enemy is really satisfying. The movement fills me with adrenaline and the various ways to go through the levels give the game a high replay value. But it could have been better. Let me point out a few flaws. First of all, the game is too short. The game is WAYYY too short. I have beaten it two times (Once on Medium and once on Hard) in a matter of seven hours of gameplay. That is a hint that a game is too short. A better direction for the gameplay style would have been open-world. If the game was open world, with simply the option to do the missions, it would be perfect. There were several points where the movement was glitched/unpolished to the point that certain pipes would not be grabbable (Or even solid, with Faith flying right through them like some kind of Spooky finger puppet parkour ghost). Over all, I'm happy with the gameplay mechanics but I'm not happy with how little gameplay there actually is. Let's just say that the game looks way more interesting in the trailers than it is once you actually get your hands on it and play it. 7/10 ________ Story (All Spoilers Contained within Red Lines) This game is truly lacking in story, it really is. That is perhaps the game's biggest weak point. It just throws characters at you and expects you to care about them even if you only interact with them for say, twenty seconds, In addition, the whole background abut why the city is totalitarian, what exactly the oppressive laws are, and other seemingly crucial details are left vague/not mentioned at all. The next part contains spoilers, but if you don't read it you won't quite understand how I'm going to rate this segment of the game. SPOILERS IN THE PARAGRAPHS BETWEEN THE RED LINES __________________________________ ___________________ 2/10 _______________________ Graphics I'm torn on this one, the harsh colors are unique but bore me. I mean, the environments are not at all varied, to that extent that if I had mashed up a video of my playing experience it would be hard to tell which level is which. This game needs more varied graphics, I know the city is supposed to all look similar, but they at least could have had some unique-looking interiors. The laboratory-like place under PK was a great opportunity that they turned into a three minute long hallway. As for the quality of the graphics, meh, they're not the best, they're not the worst. I'd say they're fitting for the game. 7.5/10 ___________________ Soundtrack Mostly just ambience, doesn't suit my tastes but on the other hand I can't just flat out call it bad because it achieves the ambience level it was meant to. I'd say that to improve the sound track it would need more variation, much like everything else in the game, the soundtrack is repetitive and by the end of the game it's just plain boring. The soundtrack isn't memorable at all, and once more, don't get me started on the ending song. If I had uploaded the ending video was "Mirror's Edge has a shitty ending while I play unfitting music" nobody would be any the wiser, if they hadn't played it, they might not realize I had not edited it at all. It's not at all memorable in any way, I don't think anybody would go out of their way to listen to this and I think that if the Mirror's Edge soundtrack was on DVD only Hipsters would buy it. 4/10 ______________________ Controls The controls are responsive, the player moves at a good speed, I did not find myself having any trouble doing anything, there isn't much to say about these, except that the game is well-programmed. If I had one complaint it is that sometimes when trying to jump over a railing, you'll instead end up stepping over it and falling to your death. While you could back up and curl your legs up upon jumping, this is not always an option on smaller areas like say, a fire escape. 8/10 ______________________ Summary This game was okay, that's all I can really say about it. Let's just say that it had potential but it really failed to reach that potential. The game looks way more interesting in the trailers than it is while actually playing it. While you will find that it can be a fun way to waste a few hours, I wouldn't recommend checking it out if repetitive gameplay and environments are something that really gets to you. If you're looking for something new and unique, this is a place to find it, but if you're looking for a game that will blow you away, I'd recommend looking elsewhere. Mirror's Edge is really a swing and miss game, I mean, somehow, they managed to take an incredibly unique concept, and make the game in such a way that even with unique gameplay, Mirror's Edge is nothing special. It has it's fun moments but the game was so repetitive that anything interesting was grinded out in favor of more copy and pasted environments. This is not to say that I dislike this game, in fact, quite the opposite is true. What I'm really getting at, is that Mirror's Edge could have been so much more than it ended up being. Let's hope that Mirror's Edge 2 fairs better. Don't buy this game if you're expecting it to be the best thing ever made. That isn't to say that you won't enjoy it if you're looking for something unique and adrenaline filled. This game might make you happier than Snoop Dog if it was raining Cocaine, nobody knows. Final Rating: 7.5/10
  24. Normally the sort of stuff I love to listen to is songs that feel like they have depth and meaning. As if the Music artist is trying to illustrate some of their emotions and imagination in a few (or more) minutes of audio. So I thought I may dedicate a thread to that to see what songs you guys love. Here's a few from my phone:
