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.

@  Touch My Thighs : (26 September 2016 - 09:30 PM)

Sakamoto or Sipher's art?

@  ShadowMan024 : (26 September 2016 - 08:17 PM)

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.

@  Touch My Thighs : (26 September 2016 - 07:43 PM)

What did Derrick do?

@  Pennpenn : (26 September 2016 - 07:42 PM)

That makes sense, thank you.

@  TheMightyMol... : (26 September 2016 - 06:53 AM)

I think I'm just too used to metal to not understand the lyrics.

@  ▲ndrusi : (26 September 2016 - 06:02 AM)

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)

:(

@  PlutoniumBoss : (25 September 2016 - 08:25 AM)

Everypony ready for an Applejack episode?

QUOTE
The Last Roundup: Applejack goes missing after attending a rodeo, so her pals search for her.

Looking at TVGuide.com, it appears that there won't be an encore showing immediately afterwards anymore. The time slot following all new episodes for now on will be reruns of S2 episodes. No more of the same episode back to back. So try not to miss the first showing, or you'll have to catch YouTube later instead.

In my opinion a great episode. AJ I thought was acting a bit out of character and maybe not living up to her elemeny of honesty, but she technically didn't lie. She just... didn't tell the whole truth.

Pinkie was fun, as usual. It was funny to see them use her as a "weapon" to try and get AJ to spill the beans. Angry Pinkie was funny too.

The final scene with Pinkie and Rarity was just awesome. Nice to see that the writers didn't just have them magically be on the train with the others. Poor Rarity... icon-fire.gif

And finally, Derpy is now officially canon and has a voice! Anyone know who was voicing her?

Yeah, me too. Lucy references excite me more than CANON DERPY. I mean, I'm glad the show has this ongoing back and forth with the fandom--god knows it wouldn't be as popular as it is without it--but I prefer that to be more in the background (like correctly pairing Lyra and Bon Bon, like they were this episode.)

Also, I love how this show isn't afraid to bend its own rules for the sake of a gag. Like, there's no way they wouldn't go back for Rarity and Pinkie, you know? But somebody said "ponies on a handcar! PONIES ON A HOOFCAR!" and so it went in.

Doesn't sound like Tabitha, but that just goes to show how good a VA she is.



One thing that's got me thinking is how come no one went with Applejack to watch her in the rodeo and offer support?

They actually named her derpy.

I.... don't know.... how I feel about that. I don't think I like it.
As always, I'm in agreement with Master Fwiffo.

I'm also not too fond of excessive slapstick (My fondness of Lesson Zero isn't exactly universal, either), which her scene kinda was. And it felt very, very forced.

I'll withhold judgement of the rest of the episode since the above may have coloured by impression of the rest beyond its actual relevance for the episode at large, though.

Well.....I....I don't know what to say. I've got mixed feelings about this. I'm not really sure what to think of it.
I'm still in shock that they actually made Derpy's name canon on the show. That was very unexpected. She had been absent in the past couple of episodes, but today she came back in a BIG way. And they even gave her a speaking role!

After watching the episode on the Hub this morning, I hit EQD to see what the fandom's response was to this. The number of responses there are overwhelming, but they seem positive overall. A whole lot of excitement going on there as a result of Derpy's canonization today.

I always thought that she was meant to be the "where's Waldo" of FiM and never expand past that. At least, that was the impression I always got. Hasbro really dropped a surprise on all of us today. One that I never expected would actually happen.

Poor Applejack. Looks like her episode today is going to be remembered as Derpy's episode instead.
