It's better be 5-6 eps this time.
The rabbit is OPEN come join for the MLP stream https://www.rabb.it/Anon27
What's PST time in GMT?
You ever stop and wonder at the autism required to come up with those messes that we're supposed to call "time zones"?
I think that it's mostly just territory observing the timezone of its local capitol regardless of if the territory sits outside of the geographical timezone.
That's how it looks at a glance. The lines are straight in international waters, but then start hugging the borders of assorted territories as it snakes its way across land.
It just looks like a complete and total mess to me. Arbitrarily divided up, many times not even following territorial borders. Just look at the US and how many states are split between two different time zones despite there being no reason to do so, or how there are places in Siberia where you can completely skip over one.>>144954>tfw no face
A lot of it is probably tradition and human stubbornness where the lines may have initially made more sense when initially adopted, but then the territory's lines may have been redrawn due to war or legislative reasons. The locals may have simply kept the same time zone that they were accustomed to using because they couldn't be arsed to change anything and nobody gave a fuck about maps.
I agree, but you need to put yourself in the shoes of a lazy bureaucrat. Why go through the effort of changing things when you could just not?
I think I just threw up in my mouth a little.
Is this still happening today? The room is still locked.
You just have to ask to join once you do I will let you in. It's private to stop randos from rabbit it self from joining
I hate registrations
I hate registration.
We need a more open medium.
Find one that works as well as rabbit and is as easy to get content for and we will move to it. Right now Rabbit is the best we have Cytube requires the direct files so it limits us on what we can stream, watch together limits you to a small amount of people and a single person doesn't have control so it is chaos. Right now Rabbit is flawed but sadly the best thing we have.
You said that 2 weeks ago

What if we made a board where we streamed MLP S1 every week and pretended this was a new show we'd never seen before, and were slowly starting to love? Then, at some arbitrary community-chosen point, the show "Suddenly ends" and we all pretend that season finale of choice was also the show's finale.
Fanfic that would have been allowed early-on but now breaks (((Hasbro's))) canon can be posted there, too.
personally i love the idea as i have never seen past s1.
MLP stream starts in 7 minutes at 3pm PST https://www.rabb.it/Anon27

Almost unintelligible and self-depricating stream of curses
My apologies for not making it for the stream tonight. I was attending to personal matters that were both unavoidable and time sensitive. I'll do one tomorrow at 3p PST.
Thanks for to try to accommodate the schedule, but my timing is not fixed, therefore I will do my best to reach the stream.
If God Wills It, of course.
everyone except the streaming anon apparently.
I'm in CST genius
Room is open, stream starts at the hour (22 minutes from now). Season 1 episode 9https://www.rabb.it/ninjas
Jesus christ, what idiot said that time. I very clearly typed 5pm PST, 8p EST
No, I'm serious. I thought to myself "Is 4/7 a good time? It went well last time, and we went 5/8"Its supposed to be 5/8!!
That said, Mlp in about 45 minutes.
I confirm, it died 3 times already for me.
Thanks for your hosting though.
Next week I hope you will be back.
Rabbit claims that your room is locked.
Odd, I expressly said Public room. Its fixed now
I enjoyed it again very much.
"PONIES the Anthology II" was very good.
Why did AJ get such a small role in the movie? She got only one or two lines per song.
Fluttershy hardly did anything either.
reeee I keep forgetting this is a thing on Wednesdays again
Yeah, that was fun, I'm glad you enjoyed it. I can't take any credit for the after-MLP shows though, that was all you guys. Plus it was nice to make some new friends, and BTFO'ing that one troll was an added bonus.>>201941
We actually didn't watch the movie this time,… probably on friday tho.>>201942
We finished with s2e11
For those who missed it, a 17y/o nog (by his own admission) came in and thought he was going to hurt the 'bronies' feelings by calling them names. It was rather hilarious.
The problem the movie had was that it tried to follow a Disney style script, where you've got a main character who goes on a hero's journey type quest. MC is introduced in the beginning as just an ordinary guy living his ordinary life, something happens that thrusts him into a situation where he has to go on a quest, the quest happens, he meets characters along the way who help him, some kind of tragedy usually happens at some point where he fucks up somehow, then he redeems himself, fights the villain, the day is saved, and usually the story ends with the hero marrying the princess or something. A good story format that never gets old no matter how many times you use it, and imo the movie actually did a pretty good job with it for the most part, aside from some minor hiccups. The trouble is, a story like that doesn't really work as well when you've got six separate characters fulfilling the role usually filled by one protagonist.
To their credit, I think the writers did initially try to give each character something to do. Twilight, as one might expect, took on most of the "hero" role. You'll also notice that each friend they make along the way sort of "fits" one particular character and forms more of a bond with that character than they do with the others: Rarity/Capper, Pinkie Pie/Princess Skystar, Rainbow Dash/the pirates, Twilight/Tempest. I'm guessing the idea during the planning stage of the film was that each pony gets to make a new friend.
Unfortunately, trying to do that for six characters is probably a little ambitious for a 90 minute movie, so as usual, the writers just pushed the characters they couldn't do anything with into the background. It's pretty well documented at this point that they have some kind of progressive hateboner for AJ, so she naturally got fucked over as usual, and Fluttershy just kind of spends the movie being Fluttershy in the background. Maybe she just needed to be more assertive and demand a bigger role.
I would have liked to see a longer Canterlot siege/liberation, the Chrysalis take-over did left me expecting a far well-arranged one in this movie, but anyway.
Room is open, show scheduled to start in about 10 minuteshttps://www.rabb.it/ninjas
God damnit. I go afk for five minutes and come back to some weirdo having the remote who spamming repulsive pornography.
>>203322>host left leaving the remote to suspicious suckup>suckup and others start sharing faggoty normie memes>not sure if suckup then left or gave it away intentionally>literal gay ass porn>kek at how it all went to shit in under 5 mins
went about as well as could be expected
I have the control back
God dammit! This is why I asked for volunteers! I hoped someone who I could rely on would say something, but noooo, this new guy did. I come back 30 min later and the stream is dead (and gladly so, given what I'm seeing).
Stream ended on s2e18
It could have continued, in fact I came back to continue it, but apparently people can't resist being insufferable fags, and the only responsibility I take is for thinking that people could control themselves. Lesson learned. e\_/e
No need to apologize, the fault is mine. I'm opting for default rule A.
So, it will be at least 1 (probably 3) showings of the movie for the rest of the night
Alright then, also, who exacly was that faggot's account?
There was another guy too. I should have recorded their name, but they were the ones with the avatar of some autistic looking hispanic girl's face. I was sifting through some stuff in another tab, and then when I came back flamebolt was gone and this other person was abusing the remote.
Appreciated, but again the fault is mine
Looks like I do have a record of their name. The guy who was viewing porn was Bobby Hill (@enclave4321).
Geez, that must have happened not long after I left (am visiting relatives). I wish I had stayed longer.
Its fine, I learned my lesson
Oh well, my internet is failing once again, i can't get in the room… nice stream tho, i really enjoyed it.
Sorry, thanks for coming. With recent changes to rabbit, that's only forcing me to find a better alternative (again, props to germanon) Soon. Take care!
Thanks, a lot of people are complaining about it in other rooms, i think they'ĺl fix it soon.
Anyway, take care Poner.
I wouldn't hold my breath. In the meantime, some anons asked about the stream. I linked them to the horsepussy thread. They left for some reason, IDK. XDDDDDD
>>203354>They left for some reason, IDK. XDDDDDD
I am a witness of the stampede.
I am late, but on my way.
I think its time to address this one.
As you mention its not a Disney-style script its a heroes journey (read: story/theme that surpasses time immemorial), but one that involves an established 6-pony group rather than an individual. The movie starts with everyone doing what they do best in and for Equestria and if you think about it, this is more bookworm-Twilight than is often seen in the series at this point (it takes places post season 7) than has been seen since she got her wings.
I see your point on not everypony having something to do, but that's because the circumstances that would make sense for a character to contribute to were easily or readily applied. Yes, Appul and Flutters took a less significant role overall, but that's because their talents were less appreciable in context. You can blame that on writing but in a world-building sense how else could it be applied? Unless there was a montage about working hard and exerting discipline Appul doesn't have much to show for cuz that's her thing. Through her example in the show the characters have become more honest, and honesty definitely played a subtle roll in the movie (over the course, if not at certain moments; there was deception certainly).
Or take Flutters,… even in the show she is more of a passive roll, was this to be any different.
Realize that while catering to established audiences, the point of the movie was to try and market the
series to a new audience that didn't know them. Even if some ponies did more or less, you can't say you didn't get a goo glimpse of each pony in theirenvironment, and lets' face it, honesty/discipline (Appul) and compassion/kindness (Flutters) are not attributes that are easily marketed to children.
As far as the storyline as a whole I think you're being a little too demanding. Everypony played a part in the Canterlot siege, though obvious emphasis was given to the newcomers (which the new audience knows just as well as the established ponies, so no surprise there).
Going back to the heroes journey, it makes sense that Twilight was the one who fell to the 'dark side' (relatively speaking) because lets not forget, Twilight was one willing to put a curse ('enchantment') on her rag-doll because she needed to (create and then) solve a problem in ponyville. Let's not pretend that Twilight always acts on the up and up, but this is a context in which her occasionally duplicitous actions blew up in her face. Additionally, she got a chance to encounter a pony who through totally different circumstances had long since gone over to the dark side, and it was only through her ability to comprehend that decision (having flirted with such a decision herself, both in the series and in the movie) could she appreciate, understand, and bridge the gap to said Fizzlepop.
The movie is full of classic themes, including Celestia hinting at what is going to happen long before it does, has all manner of cameos INCLUDING Anonfilly, and of course it presents the best pony Songbird Serenade, don't test me on this one
in a delightful yet humble manner that doesn't impose on other ponies through the majority of the movie or the series.
I'm sorry, but I don't see how you could appreciate the movie for what it is and attempts to do (and does so splendidly) and maintain criticism of it.
And if you do, you just haven't watched it with other anons and shitposted the whole time. Its much better that way.I haven't nearly exhausted myself in this diatribe, so please challenge me on this
Why do you like Songbird Serenade?
That's none of your business
Rainbow Rocks was better.
Way better songs.
Way better villains.
And it was an EQG movie.
>>204721>my opinion is better
Good luck with that Italy
I think you may have misinterpreted a few of my points.
>As you mention its not a Disney-style script its a heroes journey (read: story/theme that surpasses time immemorial), but one that involves an established 6-pony group rather than an individual.
What I actually said is that it DOES attempt to follow a Disney-style script, which is a format that generally more or less follows the monomyth or hero's journey (ie Aladdin, the Lion King, etc). My point was that this format doesn't work as well when you have six characters simultaneously following the same journey, because you either have six characters splitting the role of hero between themselves, or you give the hero role to one characters and then you have to find something for the other five to do. I feel like what they actually tried to do was a combination of both: Twilight clearly assumes (or attempts to assume) the hero's role, but ultimately learns that problems are easier to solve when you rely on your friends.
All I was really trying to point out is that when you try to do a Hero's Journey story in a 90 minute movie format with six heroes, it's hard to balance it so that each of the six characters gets adequate screen time. In this case, Fluttershy and Applejack wound up being the ones who got shorted. I don't necessarily fault the movie for this since as I mentioned it would have been extremely difficult to make a feature-length movie that gave each character their own story arc. I do, however, think it's worth noting that Applejack is the character who was given the least amount of screen time, considering that the movie was written by Megan McCarthy. Feel free to correct me if I'm remembering this wrong, but as I recall in the leaked internal Hasbro emails from last year, McCarthy was one of the writers who was vocally complaining that Applejack was too much of a hick and she didn't like writing her. My suspicion is that this is why Applejack got pushed into the background and I think it's worth pointing out.
>I'm sorry, but I don't see how you could appreciate the movie for what it is and attempts to do (and does so splendidly) and maintain criticism of it.
My intention was not to denigrate the movie. I own the Blu-ray and watch it periodically, I've also sat in on streams with other anons and shitposted throughout as you've suggested. It's a good movie and they did a good job with it. However, the fact that you like something shouldn't place it above criticism. It's possible to enjoy something and still assess its strengths and weaknesses through an objective lens, in fact I greatly enjoy taking things I like and subjecting them to intense criticism.
Overall I think a fair assessment of the movie is that it was good, but not fantastic. Some of its shortcomings were unavoidable, like the issue with some characters got shortchanged on screen time as I explained. Some of its other problems, however, could have been handled better. For instance, I don't think the Storm King was a particularly well-developed character and I found him kind of meh as a villain. If I was going to rate it on a Disney scale, I would say it's not quite at the level of the Lion King, but it beats Pocahontas by a wide margin I'd give roughly the same rating to Donald Trump's presidency
. Overall I'd grade it somewhere between a B+ and an A-.
The music was great. I listen to the soundtrack a lot when I'm driving.
>has all manner of cameos INCLUDING Anonfilly
I never noticed Anonfilly, where does she appear?
Agreed, she is a good character.>>204721
I actually wound up really enjoying Rainbow Rocks. The first EQG I thought was bizarre and nonsensical, but they did a good job with RR. I'm going to have to watch the rest of them at some point.
Anonfilly is in the crowd on the left when Songbirb is flying over the audience
As for the critique, here's the thing. You're quite right about Twilight being the obvious hero as far as the journey is concerned. The movie starts with Twilight not appreciating her position and capacity as friendship princess and first appealing to the other princesses to pull off her event. From that point on, in a deliberate parallel I'm sure, she is torn by feeling like the last hope of equestria which leads her to be overly critical of her friends and make ill advised decisions herself.
The Storm king WAS a meh villain, that too is part of the point. Unless he was using others (in this case Tempest) he was a flaming idiot who didn't know the first thing about the magic and devices he was having them gather. Tempest was the real force for his kingdom (at least in this context, who knows what the next movie is going to put out there), and she was only doing so because she had never experienced true friendship, which only Twilight got close enough to her to realize (during her song). So then, while in the beginning Twilight thought that she needed the other princesses to make this big event go over properly - neglecting the fact that her friends were all doing their part - in the end she realized that all she needed to focus on was friendship and as a result achieved everything she hoped to by way of the festival AND together with her friends saved Equestria. The whole movie is an expounded parallel of the festival in general, and both were successfully accomplished by the same spirit and intent.
I can comprehend disliking aspects of it, but the aspects that were less appreciable only complemented the aspects that were intended to be more appreciable. At least, that's how perceive it.
Well, i dunno how to objectively tell how the songs are better.
But i can tell very well that Adagio isn't another Glimmer-tier viilain with her own shitty backstory.>>204751
I hope you like them but honestly, don't expect much.

Is this one?
She looks like Anonfilly indeed.
