I cut out the middleman and assume that they're all jerks and/or shills.

@  Rycochet : (27 September 2016 - 07:15 AM)

Social media is the worst thing to happen to fandom, you can now see people whose work you like being jerks or shills on a daily basis, which is worse than a bad interview or two.

@  Robowang : (27 September 2016 - 07:12 AM)

Dirty Jerk Warts?

@  Broadside : (27 September 2016 - 07:05 AM)

Also, I guess he hates IDW Soundwave for not being an emotionless brick like the cartoon version? Man. Any enjoyment of Animated in future is going to be tainted for me by the fact that DJW is the worst kind of boring Geewunner.

@  Broadside : (27 September 2016 - 07:04 AM)

He also hates Action Man for no apparent reason other than "I don't know who this is and I don't care to find out". Which isn't fair, because Ian is the best character in IDW.

@  Jalaguy : (27 September 2016 - 06:47 AM)

DJW was mouthing off about the art for Revolution the other day too, doesn't entirely surprise.

Oof.

@  zephyrX9 : (26 September 2016 - 08:05 PM)

Sipher made a sarcastic remark about Sakamoto's skeeviness. Derrick called him an a**hole, and insulted his art, which was a low, unnecessary blow.

it's a vile interruption, chess the scripture way

@  Pennpenn : (26 September 2016 - 03:49 AM)

I've had versions where the issue doesn't come up (or at least doesn't come up in the part I notice the most), but the version that got remastered for Bluray and DVD releases have it.

@  Nevermore : (26 September 2016 - 02:05 AM)

I initially misheard "flying tools of torment" as "we're flyin' into some torment".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 September 2016 - 01:08 AM)

If it's a problem with all released versions, maybe the original audio source was itself damaged?

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 09:30 PM)

I wish they'd relase a remastered version that fixed the audio and included at least had an option to have the text crawl rather than the credits at the start.

@  Telly : (25 September 2016 - 09:27 PM)

tryin to buy the movie from amazon for $20-ish. the price of it has been fluctuating like crazy. not a day has gone by that it hasnt dropped to one price and then gone back up a few hours later. never seen a price fluctuate so much

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 07:57 PM)

Then again, a lot of versions of the movie had pretty bad sound quality, even the most recent blu-rays mess it up in places, so it's not as much our fault if we misheard stuff.

@  Arazyr : (25 September 2016 - 07:28 PM)

When I first heard it, half of it may as well have been in a foreign language, for all I could make out. (Of course, I can say that about most music...)

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 07:14 PM)

I can't remember entirely, and I can't "hear" anything but the actual lyrics now, but I remember "I am born to hurt you, I'll break the boundless sky" as how my brain parsed the first words.

@  Nevermore : (25 September 2016 - 07:01 PM)

So what did you hear?

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 06:39 PM)

I almost completely misinterpreted the lyrics for that song for ages, and when I did find out what they were I thought my idea of the lyrics was better.

@  Nevermore : (25 September 2016 - 06:29 PM)

So apparently the 2016 remake of "Instruments of Destruction" is out. I'm still waiting for an Amazon download to become available, but the clips I heard thus far sound cool. They're using the uncensored lyrics!

@  Bass X0 : (25 September 2016 - 03:02 PM)

This is EPIC. Fluttershy wrestling a bear, Rainbow Dash dropping the rainbow nuke, Rarity's couch... icon-hotrod.gif And of course, the many crazy antics of Twilight. Man, I missed this show during the summer.

Also, in one shot, we see Twilight and the others from above (first time, I think) - and that answers our old question - yes, ponies have cute mark on both sides. icon-hotrod.gif

And hey, they even put Derpy in the opening!

Nope, they are new. I bet we'll have some "Old Ponies' Home" scene in an upcoming episode.

Man, must say, the huge pile of ponies (including the Mayor) all surrounding Big Macintosh will lead to a lot of fanfics of 'that' nature. But regardless, that scene was hilarious. Loved how Derpy gets her eyes derped back again once the spell is dispelled.

And besides all the fun in the episode, Celestia's talk at the end and the whole lesson was a quite heartwarming one. As a kid, I have been a model student myself, and I know what it feels like to be thinking that you have let your teacher/mentor down... when in truth you were just over-reacting.

Okay, that was awesome. The Sonic RainBomb did it for me, as well as FS wrestling a bear. I like how Spike saved the day. Big Mac is golden, as he is every time we see him. And I actually really like Angry Celestia. We need more of her.

Of course, this was an important episode, because we can not get a lesson in every episode for the EI rating, without forcing Twilight to be in every episode.

Any idea where this goes in the timeline? I think summer, possibly before Dragon Shy. They don't seem to know eachother as well as in the DisQord Saga, and Fluttershy is still phobic of everything (according to Twilight)
I had a better signature... then it ran away. MLP card trade list. MLP blind bag trade list.

And of course Celestia was awesome. Now she actually flies and even jumps.

It's not the first time she's flown. But it is the first time she's teleported.

But when she appeared, it was like an old 80's family-friendly alien movie, particularly ET when the ship returns for him. She's just throwing beams of light everywhere like air-to-ground search lights.

I'd say sometime in late/mid-spring. Possibly even after Winter Wrap-up. The weather's warming-up, the skies are clear and sunny. Why wouldn't they want to invoke the right of Spring Fever and have a picnic?
Also, Twilight's mind was slipping. She clearly wasn't having rational thoughts.

I really enjoyed this one. The updated opening was good; it was about time the CMC were included in it. The facial expressions were priceless, and this definitely tops Swarm of the Century for how deranged we've seen Twilight. There were some seriously creepy vibes in her scene with the Crusaders, though, lol (unfortunately, a bit reminiscent of a certain fanon incarnation of Celestia)... and materializing inside the ball and destroying it seems almost like something Discord would do. She seemed extremely comfortable with teleporting in this episode, whenever it took place. I wonder if that kind of unhinged state of mind is one of the things that's more conducive for performing that kind of unusual magic. The Dinky and Ruby sightings were welcome, too; I hope we see more of both this season.
