/mlpol/ Movie Night
Yep, you read that right. There will be a movie stream tonight as we're all trapped in our homes, slowly going insane thanks to
We'll be watching the MLP, and then after we can decide if we want to watch some show episodes or just repeat the movies while shitposts occur as has always happened historically.
We'll start the movie at REMINDER: Program commences at 5:30 PST instead of 6:30. If this time works out it will likely be the new starting time going forward.

The ending to the movie was unsatisfying from a macro perspective because the greater problem of neighborhood decay was never solved. This is by design; the film doesn't attempt to resolve this problem because the actions required to resolve it are outside the scope of the story. It's beyond the protagonist's power to fix the things that have ruined (and will continue to ruin) his neighborhood. So, while it might have been more superficially satisfying to have him go on some kind of crazy violent rampage and drive all the undesirables out of his neighborhood, and end the film with young white families moving back in, it would be unrealistic, and would detract from what the film is ultimately supposed to be about.
The story centers around Clint Eastwood's character, with the decaying city of (I think) Detroit as a backdrop. He represents a lost American ideal: the strong, tough, self-reliant man who solves his own problems and takes pride in his work. The world around him has completely moved on from this: his neighborhood has been taken over by gooks and blacks and whatever else, the Ford factory he used to work at is long gone, his kids don't understand his way of life and he's estranged from them, and so forth. Despite this, he holds to his way of life and continues to exist as he always has, even though it's a futile action; you see this reflected in the way his gook neighbor is constantly berating him for refusing to leave the neighborhood, like all the other white people did.
The Gran Torino itself is majorly symbolic. It represents America's past, the world that Clint Eastwood's character comes from and ultimately belongs to, as well as the character himself. It's not just something he owns, it's something he helped create and took pride in creating. It's also a tangible object that can be passed down, and, since it's established fairly early on that his character is going to die soon one way or the other, there is both a symbolic and a practical question of what to do with it. The car is a legacy that can be passed down, but he has no one to pass it to. The only person connected to him who seems especially interested is his thot granddaughter, who just likes it because it's a neat car and is obviously unworthy of what it represents. His sons are not interested in it at all, and would probably either sell it or give it to the worthless granddaughter.
Eastwood is the living embodiment of Evola's lost warrior in Men Among the Ruins:
the lone soldier without an army or a cause to follow, adrift in a new world whose ideals are alien to him. The gook autist, meanwhile, is Nietzsche's Last Man: he's weak and spineless, completely lacking an identity or even the desire to have an identity. He's a foreigner living in the cultural void of nu-America, with no meaningful connection either to the America that Eastwood knows, or even to the Hmong culture that he comes from.
Like the Gran Torino, Eastwood's friendship with this kid has multiple meanings. The average normie take on it would probably be that it reflect's Eastwood's coming to terms with the multiculturalism of nu-America: he is finally able to put the past behind him, soften his racist views somewhat, and accept that the world has moved on from the one he used to live in. There's admittedly something to this: Eastwood's experiences in the Korean War obviously weigh on him quite heavily, and finding some common ground with his Hmong neighbors allows him to put some of this to rest. However, there's a lot more to it.
As mentioned above, Eastwood's character is estranged from his children. His two sons and their families belong spiritually to nu-America, and have no frame of reference for understanding Eastwood's worldview. They see him as a stubborn, cranky old man who is difficult to get along with, they don't understand why he rags on them for driving foreign cars and allowing their daughters to dress like sluts, and so forth and so on. Not only are they unworthy to inherit Eastwood's legacy, they have no use for it; they belong completely to nu-America. Eastwood understands this, and that is the basis of his conflict with them. However, they're also his sons, and he is connected to them emotionally if not spiritually. His inability to connect with his sons is another part of his personal baggage. Once he finds out he has cancer or whatever, he attempts to call them and make amends, but they're never able to establish enough common ground to form a meaningful relationship.
Eastwood's character is able to become a father figure to the gook autist in a way that he was never able to with his own sons. Moreover, his own sons belong spiritually to nu-America, and thus have no use for anything Eastwood could have taught them. However, the gook does not belong to any world; he's a spiritual non-entity. On some level he and Eastwood are similar in that they are both wanderers in a world to which they don't belong; however, Eastwood possesses the virility of the world to which he does belong, while the gook autist has nothing he can orient himself to. In adopting him as a symbolic son, Eastwood is able to pass on this virility to a new generation, instead of having it die with him.
Ultimately, the film's conflict revolves around one particular group of gangsters and you're right, the overall macro problem doesn't change. Once these gangsters are gone, some new ones will move in and the neighborhood will still be shit. The world continues to degenerate for multiple complex reasons beyond the control of any of the film's characters. Old America is gone and it's probably not coming back. The point is that even as that world dies, the virile spirit that gave life to it is being passed on, albeit in a different external form than its previous incarnation. That's my take on it, anyway.
I actually have another movie that relates somewhat to all of this, I might show it in a couple of weeks.
Very solid review, Mr. Football. At the risk of flattery, it's not far off from a Counter-Currents review in terms of quality.
The movie is effective precisely because it's so realistic, and describes a situation that is sadly prevalent all across the country (though it has an element of the heroic which is difficult to find in the real world). It probably was a way for Clint Eastwood to describe his feelings on race (including the ability to use slurs) without overtly appearing "racist." How is it possible to have hope when your own flesh and blood has not only fled the area but has degenerated in character? The ending is bittersweet, not just in the matter of fates of the characters but in terms of themes.
Besides the Evolan characteristics of the movie it's purple-pilled. Eastwood raises a foster-son and molds him from being a cretin to having aspects of masculine virtue, and that's based. However, one also gets the impression of a "white savior" complex, that replacement is inevitable so might as well get your replacers to be as worthy successors as possible. Mixed feelings are natural for those who are knowledgable about this issue, and it makes the movie all the more poignant. It's a direct look into the mindset, regrets and dreams of the conservative Boomer (I'm aware Eastwood is playing a Silent in the film) and the passing away of America.
It may be worth comparing it to Rambo: Last Blood
which has similar themes but is darker in tone and more violent
. After readings its review on Counter-Currents it may be worth watching, as it's particularly hated by the mainstream press.
Both "invincible" and "turning red" deal with a heavy subject of sacrificing the most sacred part of self, integrity, to be under a prospect of a parent. And whereas the first condemns it through showing the destruction unleashed to the world that reveals the weakness buried within, the latter fills it with furries shaking their bums.
Does the movie deserve the hate from the critics? In the applicable ammounts, yes. It's fair to point out what works in the movie and what does not. It works on a level of a medium budget cash-grab. But you can't possibly compare it with pixar's most beloved standalone hits, like WALL-E or Monster's inc. Disney is shoving their pride in the mud by bringing the most admired cartoon factory to this supbar criteria. Good riddance is all I can say.
I had some laughs at cringy shit though.
Movie time again. Here are tonight's selections:A Clockwork Orange (1971)
Has been suggested a few times, I have been meaning to show it for awhile.Reservoir Dogs (1992)
I think this one was suggested at one point as well.マイリトルポニー～トモダチは魔法～
Moon-rune pones continue with Eps 13-16 desu.
Show will commence at 5:30 PST, and I'm assuming Flappy will once again be managing the pre-stream.>>339051
Thanks fren. Rambo: Last Blood
might be a good one to do at some point.
Music is ongoing. I'll be queueing up RD Presents' My Little Dashie if more people come in, otherwise it'll just be more music and some Totally Legit Recap episodes until movie time.
Time for the old ultra violence.
I had a great time tonight. I'm glad I can finally say I watched Clockwork Orange and Reservoir Dogs.
Was all that bizarre slang supposed to be because it was a stupid future setting, or was it just because they were British? I was genuinely unsure when I was watching the movie, but now I'm thinking it's supposed to represent the future.
>>339863>Was all that bizarre slang supposed to be because it was a stupid future setting
Imagine living in the mid-twentieth century and imagine people using terms like "bussy", "sus", and "YOLO".
It would seem pretty degenerate, which I think is the point.
This. it was absolutely the point
I'm putting this week's Pre-Stream playlist together. Does anyone have some YouTube or other Streaming media they want to watch?
The plan is 10-15 minutes of music, then some animations or skits of some kind.
I have decided that we will start a watch-through of Turnabout Storm. As all the episodes after the first are over an hour long and the last part is two and a half hours long
, I hereby request that we consider including a Turnabout Storm section in the movie night stream proper.
Here's the playlist on YT that I'm looking at: https://www.youtube.com/
I'd shove the PONY.MOV series in, but the story was split with at least one AskBlog on that tumbling blog site that spent a lot of effort to kill itself over the years for some reason. I don't know how much of the story is missing from the animations, but I know there are at least two major plot points. I also don't remember if there were any other story sources for that story.
The playlist is made. If Turnabout Storm is a complete no-go, then I can see about replacing that 35 minute runtime with something else.
How about some My Little Pony YTP's?>>340239
It's really pretty easy to follow .MOV without knowing about the Ask Jappleack vlog.
>>340246>How about some My Little Pony YTP's?
I don't think I have any/many of them in a playlist. I'd appreciate links.
The Turnabout Storm begins...
No news from Elway yet. Pre-stream will continue in the meantime.
Hey all, sorry about the late notice on movies. My sleeping schedule has been ridiculous for the past few days.
I have a couple of movies ready to go, but it sounds like you guys are watching something already. I'm not sure what Turnabout Storm is or how long it is, but once it concludes we can see what time it is and probably watch a movie + some more Japanese pony episodes. Since today's the anniversary (as well as April Fool's Day), the movie selections can remain a surprise until showtime.
Only stayed for the first movie and a bit of the second but, nevertheless I had a swell time with you all on the board's 5th birthday yesterday
You can see in the second image of >>340239
that most of the episodes of Turnabout Storm are over an hour. With the padding music and another pony animation for variety, this week's Pre-Stream playlist is about 1 hour 40 minutes.
How do you want to work that in to the movie night? I'd like to have the pre-stream push back the movie start time, but I don't know how many people go to the movie stream link directly instead of visiting this thread first.
Movie Suggestions: As Good as it Gets.
It's a movie about a writer. I'm less than four minutes in to it and the MC has already tossed a dog down a trash chute to stop it from pissing in an apartment hallway and talked about "that coloured man I've seen in the hallways".
It's also the movie with that scene where the woman talks to the writer to ask how he writes women so well, and he replies "I think of a man, and take away reason and accountability".
Seems good so far. I have it on Amazon Prime Video. 2h 18m, from 1997.
If we want to keep a Jack Nicholson theme, then maybe it could be paired with Anger Management. It's been a long time since I saw that movie, but I remember it being fun. I think Adam Sandler is in it, too.
If you want to let the pre-stream run long I don't object, but some people were complaining about the movies running long, since some people are in different time zones and have to get up early on Saturday morning. It might make more sense to just start the pre-stream earlier, but either way I'm okay with it.>>340993>As Good as it Gets
Oddly enough I've been thinking of showing this movie for awhile now. I can probably throw it on the list for tomorrow. Or today, technically.
Whoops, forgot to log in. This is me though.
Alrighty folks, it's that time again. For tonight's selections, we have:
As Good as it Gets (1997)
Lonely romance writer attempts to incinerate his neighbor's dog, hilarious mishaps ensue.
The Departed (2006)
Lonely glownigger attempts to infiltrate an Irish gang, hilarious mishaps ensue.
Cute little ponies speak in moon runes, adorable mishaps ensue.
I'm assuming we'll be starting around the same time as usual, possibly a little later depending on when Flappy decides to start his pre-show. Show will tentatively commence around 5:30 PST, or thereabouts.
Pre-stream is moving through the starting music now.
Turnabout Storm Part Deux has begun!
Good night, and thanks eveeyone!
Thank you for the stream!The Departed
has a surprisingly traditionalist streak in it. Both the protagonist and the antagonist were concerned with their reputation more than death itself at the end. That caught me by surprise at the end, how one wanted to expose the truth with little regard to living and the other wanted to conceal the truth more than stay alive. That's not something you see often in Western movies nowadays.
Also, ponies are cute! >pic related
The Pre-stream will start at 6pm EST this week instead of the normal 7pm EST start time. This will accommodate the longer runtime of the Turnabout Storm episodes.
I hope to be early at home.
Pre-stream will begin in a couple of minutes. Getcher booze and snacks ready.
Pre-Stream is a go. I'll start the playlist when people begin to arrive. As usual, the playlist will start with 10-15 minutes of music to account for any latecomers.https://cytu.be/r/FlappyPterodactylhttps://cytu.be/r/FlappyPterodactylhttps://cytu.be/r/FlappyPterodactyl
No-one's in the room yet. If things go too long, I might have to cut this week's episode of Turnabout Storm for time and just have a bunch of music and MLP vids.
I think starting an hour earlier than usual might have been an issue. Would people be able to make that time next week, or was the issue this week the fact that I dropped the start time in the thread yesterday? I mentioned it in the stream chatroom last week, but that's not exactly a place where people re-read what was talked about.
I just noticed this post, I was just getting movies together and then I was going to hop in. I think people might not have noticed the open room yet, usually movie night stuff doesn't start until a little later.
>>341836>usually movie night stuff doesn't start until a little later.
Yeah, but people said they wanted an earlier start to the pre-stream when I started the poll last week.
Co-ordinating start times across all these timezones is tricky stuff.
Movie time once again, here are tonight's selections:Heavy Metal (1981)
A story about rock music and large cartoon boobs, and probably some other stuff as well. Delightful 1980s silliness.Heavy Metal 2000 (2000)
Pretty much the same thing, but 20 years later.マイリトルポニー～トモダチは魔法～
LUCKY PONY SLUTTO
Movies will commence after Flappy's preshow, at approximately 5:30 PST. See above posts and ongoing discussion for preshow start times.>>341837
I can sympathize, coordinating timezones has been a major headache since I started doing this. Anyway, we can probably start the preshow, hopefully people will see that the thread has been bumped.
This week's Turnabout Storm episode will be starting in about 3 minutes.
Pic included for post visibility.
Pre-stream is over for the week.
Next week, the pre-stream will start at the normal time (7pm EST) instead of one hour earlier like this week (6pm EST). The first movie of Movie Night will be the Turnabout Storm episode of the week, since they're pretty much the length of a movie anyway. There are 3 episodes left. See >>340239
Pre-streams will consist of music and shorter animations. I'm thinking of leaning into the PONY.MOV series for next week.
We were talking about The Ten Commandments on the Easter stream and apparently it is ranked as the tenth best epic film of all time. #1 is Lawrence of Arabia which I've never seen. The oldest on that list is All Quiet on the Western Front which I've also never seen.
Hey, Elway, regarding the first movie of this week being the Turnabout Storm episode, are you all set up for that? Do you have your own offline copy of it to show on the normal movie stream link, or do you know that you're going to use CyTube for the Turnabout Storm movie?
If you need to rip the movie from YouTube, then some ripping tools might take a while to convert it, or they might be throttled.
Just checking in and making sure that things are set up.
I have the pre-stream stuff ready to go. We will have music, music videos, an old fan animation that I found when I was poking through some archives (which even has a trailer made for it!), a short album, and some PONY.MOV videos.
The Pre-Stream will start at 7pm EST, or basically now. I'll start the music and stuff once people start filtering in to the room.
Playlist in the post. I have no idea what's messing with my screencap. If anyone knows how to export a playlist into a readable format that includes things like the video length and the thumbnail, let me know.https://cytu.be/r/FlappyPterodactylhttps://cytu.be/r/FlappyPterodactylhttps://cytu.be/r/FlappyPterodactyl
No-one's in the room yet. Well, Occult is, but he's going to be in and out.
If the stream needs to be cut short, then I'll remove the animations first for time.
I think I might have misunderstood what we agreed last week. My assumption was that you were going to be showing the Turnabout Storm stuff on your stream as you've been doing, and I would just be streaming a single movie plus pony episodes. The Turnabout Storm episode you'd be showing would take the place of one of my movies, so my stream would thus start about 1.5 hours later than usual. Unfortunately I don't have any of the Turnabout Storm episodes saved anywhere.
My plan was to just show Lawrence of Arabia since that was one of the requests listed and then some more Japanese pony episodes. Is that not what we're doing?
That works for me. It's easy enough to add that on to the end of the stream playlist.
My concern was that some people might have your regular stream room bookmarked and just got used to going to that stream room without going to this thread first to see what's going on.
No worries. I just woke up a bit later than usual today because I was assuming I didn't have to start the stream until later. I will just plan on starting Lawrence whenever Turnabout wraps up.
Also, everyone, tonight's selections will be:Lawrence of Arabia (1962)マイリトルポニー～トモダチは魔法～
LUCKY PONY SLUTTO
Stream will commence after Flappy's show, probably around 7-7:30 PST, which I think is about 10 EST.
Fantastic. See you soon.
...Aaand that's the end of the Pre-Stream and Turnabout Storm episode for this week. I've got an early day tomorrow, so with time zone stuff, I'll be turning in now.
Talk to you next week. Have a good time with Lawrence of Arabia.
See ya, sleep well.
Someone in chat mentioned Picnic at Hanging Rock, do you want to watch that film? Please do host the stream earlier though.
More movie suggestions:
Waco: The Rules of Engagement. I was told that this movie is about three letter people, and will be an education that will tell people why they should hate them.
The Northman. A viking movie. From what little I've heard, there were some Leftists who were upset that this movie didn't show enough black people in viking times. I know nothing else about this.
Going with Picnic at Hanging Rock this week since that was suggested first. Also, apologies about the long run time last week, I forgot that Lawrence of Arabia is like four hours long. Picnic at Hanging rock is about 1:50 so this week it should work a little better.
>>343181>Going with Picnic at Hanging Rock this week since that was suggested first.
Oh, I'm in no rush. I just thought they might be good fits to go somewhere on the movie list at some point. I was slightly unsure whether Waco was a good fit, since I understand it's more of a documentary that's supposed to make people angry rather than a fun movie..
I'm getting the playlist for tonight set up right now, so here's hoping this early post will get people in earlier than last week.
The Pre-Stream will start at 7pm EST, or approximately 45 minutes from this post.
The Pre-Stream Pony of the week is Fluttershy.
As noted above, tonight's movie selection will be:
Picnic at Hanging Rock (1975)
Along with another four episodes of Lucky Pony Slutto. Show will commence as soon as Flappy's stream wraps up, probably about 7 PST (10 EST). Since this movie has a more normal run time, we shouldn't have any issues with ending late this week.
Just lost my reply, fuck. Pic related.
The Pre-Stream will start with music as usual. I have music, animations, and the next couple bits of PONY.MOV (finale next week!). The Pre-Stream will be an hour(-ish). After the Pre-Stream, we'll move into watching the next part of Turnabout Storm, then it'll be time to move to the movie stream room to watch Picnic at Hanging Rock.
Pre-Stream will start when I have 2 guests in the room.https://cytu.be/r/FlappyPterodactylhttps://cytu.be/r/FlappyPterodactylhttps://cytu.be/r/FlappyPterodactyl
Done with the Pre-Stream plus Turnabout Storm episode. Moving to main movie room linked in >>343286
Time for a movie about a picnic or something.
Thanks once again everyone for the good times
Picnic at Hanging Rock: the Lost Endinghttps://youtu.be/G2RRdsIjsj8
Pre-stream Pony of the Week is Pinkie Pie.
This week's Turnabout Storm episode is two hours and thirty-four minutes.
I tested SWAG.MOV in my cytube room when I was the only person inside it, and it seems to play just fine without any age restrictions on it.
I put that "The God of Ponies" animation in the playlist this week.
Aside from these major animations, I have a few minor animations scattered in here and mixed with the music.
The total playlist length, including the Turnabout Storm Episode, which will count as the first of the two movies of the night, is currently set at three and a half hours. That fits into the regular one hour of pre-stream, plus one movie.
I'll have the tab open, and will be able to respond and make any needed changes before 7pm EST.
Alrighty folks. Same deal as last week, we will be running one movie + Lucky Pony Slutto after Flappy's stream wraps up.
Tonight's movie will be:
Office Space (1999)
Once again, we will begin once Turnabout Storm concludes, probably around 6:30 PST (9:30 EST).
Pre-Stream room will open up in approximately ten minutes!
See you soon!
Very hype! I'll probably be late this time so don't worry about me.
The Stream Night has officially launched!!!
Pre-Stream stuff is done. Turnabout Storm Finale is starting now!
We've also finished with SWAG.MOV, which was the PONY.MOV finale.
Pre-Stream is done for the night.
Like that, we're finished with PONY.MOV and Turnabout Storm.
Time for the movie, and then more ponies.
Stream night is completely done for the night.
Happy sleep time.
I see. 7 hours long.
Since Turnabout Storm has wrapped up, I'm assuming this week we will be resuming our usual format. So, unless I hear otherwise, I will plan on showing two movies starting at 5:30 PST/ 8:30 EST, with Flappy doing his thing in the before-space. Schedule will be announced shortly.
Regular format it is. If we're going to go for the Pony Anthologies, most of those are over an hour long, so we'd be going back to the one-movie format.
Excuse the lateness. I had some stuff after work come up, and I still need to go for a wash before I can attend the pre-stream. I have a playlist mostly put together, I just have to remove a few entries, and then I'll post the link.
Pre-Stream Pony of the week is Applejack.
Pre-stream is ready to go. We've got music, short animations, PMVs, and some Totally Accurate Recaps.
I've got some stuff to take care of, so I'll be starting the pre-stream as soon as anyone arrives.https://cytu.be/r/FlappyPterodactylhttps://cytu.be/r/FlappyPterodactylhttps://cytu.be/r/FlappyPterodactyl
The stream is rolling along! I'll be AFK for a while, though. Please address any complaints to whomever seems to have seniority in the chatroom. It won't help anything, but it'll be funny.
Good evening, gentlecolts. Tonight's selections will be:
Winchester '73 (1950)
The timeless tale of a rifle and the men who loved her.
Danish adaptation of the Jason and Medea story by Euripides.
LUCKY PONY SLUTTO
S2 Eps 15-18
Program will start at 5:30 PST/8:30 EST as usual, or whenever Flappy's thing concludes, which should be roughly around that time.
Pre-Stream is over now! Time to swap to the movies!
Room is open, a little earlier than was announced. I'll give everyone some time to head in, we'll get started in about 10-15 min.
It's that time again. Tonight we are back to a one-movie schedule as Flappy will be showing a couple of the pony anthologies during his stream.
Tonight's film will be:
The porcine equivalent of a manlet.
LUCKY PONY SLUTTO
S2 Eps 19-22
Program will commence at the end of Flappy's stream, most likely around 6:30 PST / 9:30 EST.
Just doing some last-minute setup (again).
Pre-Stream Pony of the week is Spitfire.
Stream is ready to go!
As discussed last week, we'll have the pre-stream, then we'll watch the Pony Anthology series. I think we saw Pony Anthology 1 a month or two ago, so this stream will have Pony Anthology 2. These Anthologies will be like the Turnabout Storm in that they will take up the first movie slot of the night.https://cytu.be/r/FlappyPterodactylhttps://cytu.be/r/FlappyPterodactylhttps://cytu.be/r/FlappyPterodactyl
See you soon!
Pre-Stream is DONE.
Now on to the Movie Stream.
Movie is DONE.
Now on to Moon Ponies.
The Pre-Stream playlist is set up. It'll be the pre-stream stuff, and then I'll add the Pony Anthology 3 from the archive link like last week. We've got a couple of themed sections in the pre-stream. Delta Vee's Junkyard series, a couple of Spitfire related videos, and a collection of alicorn electro swing songs to wrap up the pre-stream before the Anthology.https://cytu.be/r/FlappyPterodactylhttps://cytu.be/r/FlappyPterodactylhttps://cytu.be/r/FlappyPterodactyl
I'll start the stream with the first arrival.
Pony of the week this time is Celestia.
Hi all, sorry about the late announcement.
Tonight's movie will be:
O Brother Where Art Thou?
Last week we did Hamlet, this week we do The Odyssey. We wuz classy Westerners an sheeit.
Last four episodes of S2 tonight, and then we are sadly done with Lucky Pony Slutto. However, I have the Nip dub of the 2017 movie, which we will do next week.
Show will begin whenever Flappy's stream concludes, probably around 6:30 PST / 9:30 EST.
That's a wrap for the first part of the Pre-Stream. We're on to the Pony Anthology 3.
The Pre-Stream is done.
Suggests, it's time to move to the Movie Stream.
What a wild ride thanks frens and lucky pone sluttos.
And that's a full (or extra-full) night.
The final slut of MoonPones was Cadance.
Good night, and have a good week.
It's that time again. Our film for this evening shall be:
Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead (1990)
Suggested by Pupper. Much like Gibbon's Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, the title sort of gives away the ending, but we can still pretend to be surpised.
As to the horse feature, I have bad news and good news. The bad news is that, alas, we have run out of officially dubbed Moon Rune pones. However, the first bit of good news is that we still have the official dub of the 2017 movie, which we will be watching tonight. The second bit of good news is that apparently, the Disney Channel produced a Japanese overdub for S3 and S4. YayPonies has versions of these episodes, which are basically just the iTunes rips of the episodes with the Japanese audio substituted for English. However, they are unsubbed. If I can find subs for them by next week, we will continue with Moon Rune ponies (though sadly, they will no longer feature the anime-style openings or the Lucky Pony Slutto segments). If I can't, then I will figure out something else horse-related for next week (worst case scenario we just go back to watching the show in English).
I'm assuming Flappy will be doing his usual pre-stream show, so the movie will commence as soon as his stream wraps up; usually around 6:30 PST / 9:30 EST.
I'd say I'm changing up the format of the pre-stream night by a bit, but I'm really just fucking around. There's all 7 parts of a 6 part animatic series in here, one 14-minute gaming pony animation thing that I watched 15 seconds of to check for animation and audio quality, and some small non-pony stuff because I thought it was funny.
That makes for much less music than usual.
The Pony of the Week is going to by Lyra, to complement this whimsy and deliberate chicanery.
Room will open in ten minutes.
Alright there, folks, you know what time it is! The stream will start with the first couple of arrivals. The first couple of videos are 30 seconds to a minute long, so get there quick so you can get the whole pre-stream experience!https://cytu.be/r/FlappyPterodactylhttps://cytu.be/r/FlappyPterodactylhttps://cytu.be/r/FlappyPterodactyl
The first leg of the pre-stream has concluded, and we are now into the Anthology portion.
Since Anthology 4 looks to be just a 6 minute ad for Bronycon 2014, we'll be watching Anthology 5 as well.
The Anthology section for this week is airing it's credits. We'll be moving to the movies shortly.
I think I might have suggested Rozencrantz and Guildenstern are dead. Either way, it's one of my favourite movies. It's gonna be a good night.
Forgot my capcode but this is me, movie room is open.
I got too close to all the pony content and got lost in it far later in the night than I intended.
In only a matter of hours, I will find my way back to consciousness.
The pre-stream will definately start later than usual today. After-work stuff took a lot longer than usual.
I'm on the way home now and I estimate it'll take 25-35 minutes to get it running.
Sounds like we may be getting a late start tonight. This evening's film will be:Paper Moon (1973)
Followed by:Moon Rune Pones (2013)
Found subs for S3, so we will continue with S3 of the Nippones.
Show will commence whenever Flappy's stream wraps up.>>345602I never noticed this before, but if you rotate Pic 1 on its side, Lyra's tail looks like she is shitting rocket fuel and launching herself into space.
Pre-Stream is ready to go! We'll kick things off when people arrive, which I assume will be soon.
I decided to skip spending the time to prune the list, so given the late start time, we may be skipping this week's Anthology, depending on audience feedback.
Pre-stream pony of the week is Bon Bon.https://cytu.be/r/FlappyPterodactylhttps://cytu.be/r/FlappyPterodactylhttps://cytu.be/r/FlappyPterodactyl
The Pre-Stream has officially kicked off! Get your butts in here sooner rather than later to fully experience all the content there is this week!
Anthology has begun, we will start the movie in approximately 1 hour from the time of this post.
Anthology 6 is out of runtime, and I'm out of fucks to give about managing the Pre-Stream with only SFW images. This isn't a blue board here.
Time for the movies!
>>345926>This isn't a blue board here.
You're damn right.
Those wanting a sissy board can move to derpibooru.
The movie's still going on, but I have to head to sleep for the night.
The videos that were suggested will be added to next week's rotation. Remember, last week also has Anthology 7, the last one, in it.
Thanks eveeyone, I think I crashwd during horse
Pre-stream may be a bit different this week, as I'm much drunkjer than usual. I made the playlist on an earlier day, at least. Gotta sober up and look at it with clear eyes, right?
Poney of the week is declared to be Octavia. I just picked her to be at the end of my folder, so I know what other images I can send to the thread. during the event.
I'll start up the room soon, and start the actual stream with the first guest proper.
Here's the stream, ready to go, though I think I might be a bit late in replying, so we'll see how things go.
Evening all. Tonight's film selection will be:
Flesh and Blood (1985)
followed by our usual spirited bout of equestro-nipponese wackiness.
Show will commence whenever Flappy's pre-stream wraps up, probably around 6:30 PST / 9:30 EST if past experience can be relied upon.
Watching the Anthology right now. It's great so far. You're missing out! Come on in!
Looks like I passed out during Anthology 7 and missed the movie stuff. From what bits I could see from the chat, it looks like it was a good stream.
See you guys next week.
Hey all, just letting you know that I'm going to be otherwise occupied tonight and won't be able to show a movie. Sorry. Our regularly scheduled program will continue next week.
Oh? Alright, then.
I have the playlist prepped, but I'm okay with putting the pause on for this week. We've got three days of the online convention to keep us going.
So, there is no stream now. Right?
For an encore at the end of the movie or between movies, how about a short silent film of "Our Gang"? Derby Day
is pretty good, Dogs of War
but the first is hoers-themed.
Based and old-pilled
Oh, as it's Canada Day, I'll be out celebrating it with some friends. If someone else wants to take over the pre-stream tonight, that would be great.
I just make a YT playlist of pony content that's about an hour long, and plug that into my CyTube room, adding the whole playlist at once. It's probably easiest if you have your own CyTube account, but if someone really doesn't want to use their own CyTube room, I can look in to adding them as an Admin or Moderator of my room for this week. I don't know exactly how those features work, but all we need is the ability for one person to add a playlist of their stuff to the room.
Since it sounds like Flappy will be out celebrating some made-up Canadian holiday, there may or may not be a pre-show this week. As such, start time tonight will be a little ambiguous. We'll see what things look like once it gets closer to our usual start time.
As to my segment of the night's entertainment, I've decided that I like the idea proposed by >>346751
. I found a collection of the old Our Gang shorts, and I also have a collection of the old Merrie Melodies/Looney Tunes cartoons. I've decided it would be fun to do movie night the way movie theaters used to, with a short cartoon and a serial shown before the movie itself. The shorts are roughly 25 min each, and the cartoons are usually about 5 min, so this shouldn't seriously impact our overall runtime. We'll try it this week, and if people like it we'll keep doing it.
Anyway, here is the program for tonight:Looney Tunes: Congo Jazz (1930)Our Gang: Small Talk (1929)Gods and Generals (part 1 of 3) (2003)
This is one I've been wanting to show for awhile now, but have been hesitant due to the fact that it's unironically like six hours long. The version I have is split into three separate files, and each file is about 1.5 hours long, or in other words the length of an ordinary movie. So, I've decided to show it in parts. We'll watch the first hour and a half this week, followed by the second hour and a half next week, and so on in that fashion, until the third and final hour and a half, which will be shown on the third week.
I've never actually seen this movie and can't vouch for its overall quality, but some things I've heard about it make me feel like it will be a good time investment; namely that it was universally panned by critics and compared unfavorably to the same director's other civil war movie, Gettysburg (1993)
. The reason for this had less to do with the film's overall quality and more to do with its sympathetic portrayal of the South:>Gods and Generals is widely viewed as championing the Lost Cause ideology by creating a presentation more favorable to the Confederacy. Writing in The Journal of American History, historian Steven E. Woodworth derided the movie as a modern-day telling of Lost Cause mythology. Woodworth called the movie "the most pro-Confederate film since Birth of a Nation, a veritable celluloid celebration of slavery and treason." He summed up his reasons for disliking the movie by saying:>Gods and Generals brings to the big screen the major themes of Lost Cause mythology that professional historians have been working for half a century to combat. In the world of Gods and Generals, slavery has nothing to do with the Confederate cause. Instead, the Confederates are nobly fighting for, rather than against, freedom, as viewers are reminded again and again by one white southern character after another.
So, in summation, this feels like a good selection for July 4 (or thereabouts).
Anyway, we will follow this up with our usual screening of Nipponese pony episodes. Since there are only five episodes left in S3 and we (probably) won't have a pre-stream this week, I was thinking of just showing all five.
Unless someone volunteers for a pre-show, I'm going to tentatively aim for a 4:30 PST / 7:30 EST
start time, so roughly an hour from the time of this post. Keep an eye on the thread as times may change. Hope to see you all there.
I've gone ahead and opened the room, we can start as soon as people show up.
SO MUCH MARE AND HORS.
Yet, yet there is always room for more Mares and Snowpitty in our hearts.
Thanks everyone for inviting them into the cockles of home, hearth and heart.
Such a hot ass.
Hey all. Haven't heard from Flappy yet so I'm not sure if we're doing a pre-show this week, but here is tonight's movie program:
Looney Tunes: The Booze Hangs High (1930)
Our Gang: Railroadin' (1929)
Gods and Generals (part 2/3) (2003)
Mai Rittaru Poni: The Bombing of Pearl Harbor
S4 eps 1-4.
Since I haven't heard otherwise, I'm going to assume that Flappy will be doing his usual pre-show, and we will start after his program ends. Either way, I'm going to aim for a start time of around 5:30 PST / 8:30 EST.
Welp, no sign of Flappy this week, so I am going to just get the room up and we can start whenever people wander in.https://www.pon3.stream/view/07e9a98f-5ee7-4b61-9f84-7578821db05b/
Sorry I'm late enough to not be able to do the pre-show.
In my defense, Canada just had a major internet and phone service outage that lasted from just before 6am EST until right about now.
No internet, no phone service, no banking with debit cards (though apparently debit cards with a certain bank service worked, and credit cards were supposed to work). Apparently, not even 911 calls worked. Major outages today.
I have the playlist from an earlier week ready to go, but it's nearly a full hour of content. Starting it this late probably wouldn't be a great idea, but I'll keep an eye on the thread in case you still want to run the pre-show.
lmao speak of the devil.
no worries, I'm ready to go with movies as soon as everyone else is. we can probably save the preshow playlist for next week.
Sorry everyone, stream is kill for tonight. We will reconvene next week with the conclusion of Gods and Generals. In the meantime, please enjoy this horse pornography.
>>347588>Sorry everyone, stream is kill for tonight.
Evening gents, it's that time again. Due to the technical issues we experienced last week, I've reduced the stream resolution down to 768x432, which I'm hoping will make us less taxing on pon3's resources. I've run some tests and it doesn't look like picture quality has been seriously reduced. I think it's an acceptable tradeoff. If we still experience speed issues I'll try reducing the frame rate down to 30 fps next week, and if after that we still have issues, I might consider going back to JoshWho for movie night. If anyone more knowledgeable than I am about the technical aspects of streaming video has any additional suggestions for how to improve stream performance, I'm open.
Anyway, we only had about ten minutes left on part 2 of G&G last time, so we'll be watching the remainder of part 2 + part 3 tonight. Beyond that our schedule remains the same; if Flappy has a pre-show for us we will begin whenever his stream wraps up. Otherwise, we'll plan on starting around 5:30 PST / 8:30 EST.
Looney Tunes: Smile, Darn Ya, Smile! (1931)
Our Gang: Boxing Gloves (1929)
Gods and Generals (remainder of Part 2 + Part 3 of 3) (2003)
The Confederasah shall rise again.
Nipponyos Part IV, The Quickening (1948, colorized)
S4 Eps 1-4.
I actually have two weeks of playlists ready to go, and made them before Canada Day.
This week's playlist has a chunk dedicated to non-pony animation.
I declare that Pony Of The Week for tonight is Trixie.
Whelp, I've got the playlist for the pre-stream ready to go whenever we're ready. I'm aiming to start up about 30 minutes from now on the hour.
Pony of the week is Applebloom.
As usual, the playlist will start as people begin to arrive. I plan to go for about an hour. It's a music-heavy playlist this time.
See you there.
Sorry about the late notice, running a bit late. Tonight's selections will be:
Merrie Melodies: One More Time (1931)
Our Gang: Lazy Days (1929)
The Bounty (1984)
We will begin our program as soon as Flappy's commences, probably around 5:30ish.
Room open, everypony get in here
Here the thingy referenced. Nice thing is the search function works alright.
>Talking about PETA doing shit, with the fundamental ethics is kill all the things.
As a seemingly isolated ponerlogical (evil stemming) system it mirrors (((New world order, world economic forum))) stances along with the now destroyed (((Georgia guide stones))).
Because it also matches with Planned Parenthood (youth sacrificial organization). As in killing of the future.
More to the point it follows the same (((playbook)))
Now 'schizo' time
The hostile entities desire the destruction of the metaphorical and literal light. As in the end of creation/creating.
So what's the big deal? It's just a few seemingly imaginary ideas floating around.
However, because they seek the removal of all light. Anything or amything related to it is worthless for them (it is actively antithetical for them). So the best move they would do is offer those light based things through proxies to accomplish the checkmate regardless of cost.
The reason why they have to disclose what terrible things they will do is to not contain the light inside them. As they do in various sacrificial procedures.
Else they have proxies that as in their natural nature to be of the light to hold the light to snuff it out because that too is a by product of the light.
Which means they only have a range of ways to actually permanently kill creation.* (*How they can go about doing things is vastly limited compared to beings that are actually supposed to be here and to help. Which is why proxy beings that are hostile yet belong to an extent and also are 'easily' manipulated are used.)
Stream will begin when people start arriving!https://cytu.be/r/FlappyPterodactylhttps://cytu.be/r/FlappyPterodactylhttps://cytu.be/r/FlappyPterodactyl
One of this week's features is Missing Out, an animation by Minty Root. We also have two pairs of songs here. An original, and a cover of that song. (One of the songs is a cover of a cover.) I'm also starting to put the Pony Zone audio things in here for the finale.
I have also made it possible to post images directly into the CyTube chat, so that should be fun.
Pony Of The Week for this week is Derpy Hooves.
Sorry gang, I completely spaced out what day it was. I'm in a bit of a rush getting things together, but we are still on for tonight.
Looney Tunes: Bosko the Doughboy
Our Gang: Bouncing Babies
The Deer Hunter (1978)
Ponies in Japanese
Unfortunately I forgot to prepare the edits of the Jap episodes with the opening and ending changed, and at this point I'm not going to have time to get them done before showtime, so this week we will be back to the standard openings. I will try to have the better openings ready for next week. Sorry about that.
Show will commence as soon as Flappy's prestream wraps up.
Things are going well in the Pre-Stream.
Anyone else gonna do their daily cardio? Jog on over to the room and hang out while you relax.
Pon3 doesnt work for everyone. No doubt, there would be more if not for, and thats recognizing it as the most actionable stream-site for what we do.
Nominating John Carpenter's Vampires, while Im on
Why are you talking about Pon3? I'm not using it.
Do you have a preference for a different streaming site? It seems like pon3 has periodic speed issues, so I would be amenable to using another service if anyone has suggestions.
>>348853>Pon3 doesnt work for everyone.
The TeaTime Stream works great for me.
Pre-Stream is done. Move on over to the main movie.
I think things went well.
Pony(?) of the week is Chrysalis.https://cytu.be/r/FlappyPterodactylhttps://cytu.be/r/FlappyPterodactylhttps://cytu.be/r/FlappyPterodactyl
Stream will start when people start to arrive.
With the image posting ability that I put into the CyTube chat, I tried throwing a few "challenges" to people to post specific themes of images. If the song was about Rainbow Dash, the challenge was to post an RD-related image into the chat before the song ended. I think it might be fun to try doing that a bit more. What do people think about that? Of course, you can use the chat as normal and chill out to the music and animations that we have in the playlist. This is just to use some of the features we have access to and get a little more interaction when the chat seems to have slowed down.
Stream time is now!!!
Post Chrysalis -> get MLP music and animations!
We have another Pony Zone video coming up at the end of the Pre-Stream in a little while. Come on over if you don't want to miss it.
Elway can't make it tonight, so I will be filling in. Movies tonight will be a bit off theme, but I think they will still be fun. First up, Stargate the movie from 1994. Then I am going to try a movie called Runestone from 1991. Then it will be My Little Pony episodes to finish off the night.
The thread no longer appears on overboard. Do we need a new one?
Is it because we passed 700 replies? If so, then probably.
Should a specific person make the thread? I'm not going to be up to it until tomorrow at the earliest.
We decided to swap back to the cytube to watch ponies. We found a way to stream it there without lag buffering.
