If Trixie only masters turning things into tea cups, her magic shows could get a bit surreal.

Suddenly, a wild episode appears! What do you do? Y'know, there are only three episodes left to complete the season, and it seems that they've all been broadcast or leaked somewhere. Today, you can blame Canada -- apparently Treehouse broadcast episode 24 this morning. Since I won't get those quality download links until after the episode has been broadcast on Discovery Family in the US, I'll wait until next Saturday to put up an 'Episode Discuss' post. Might be Saturday after next, the Pony Countdown clock is reading 12 days to go. Whenever, but in the meantime, should you want some brain candy before hitting the hay (or before work, or during lunch break... your time zone may vary), you can watch episode 24: Uncommon Bond on DailyMotion, here. Hmmm, sounds seems good! Watch it before a bot eats it!

In the interest of Being Excellent and considerate of those who plan to watch this episode, all references to the content of this episode are stashed under the cut and will remain so hidden for at least a month. Someponies like to watch MLP:FIM in herds and it can be a while before they get all their ponies together. 8^) As spoilers are also likely to be in any comments: don't read if you haven't yet seen the episode unless you like being spoiled. When you're ready, drop in a comment and say what you thought of this episode!

After a month, I hope Episode Discuss posts will be so far off the top page that it'll probably take the tag to find them, so about a month after posting the cut will be removed. 8^) Sometimes I go back and drop in little extras into the posts, like comics and links to the music.

Broadcast starts at 11:30 am Eastern Daylight Savings Time, which should work out to 4:30 pm UTC, 8:30 am PST and maybe about 11:30 PM Down Under. Confused? Look at the PonyCountdown widget on the community page! At the moment there are just 5 hours left to go.

Other twits in the early morning chorus may include the likes of Meghan McCarthy, Jayson Thiessen (Supervising Director of MLP:FIM), Andrea Libman , the voice of Dragon Lord Ember Ali Milner, Big Jim (storyboard work, voice of Troubleshoes and Director of MLP:FIM), Mike Vogel and Josh Haber. The hashtag to watch should be #MLPseason7.

Claus Studios has posted many of the end title illustrations that they had produced for the movie. Check it out here. All that text and eye candy flies by pretty fast but I think I spotted the word "bronies" up at the beginning. [edit: After seeing the film a second time, I think I must have imagined that.]

Sia's MLP Movie Song, With Lyrics

This very nice and unlisted video is an exclusive for a bit produced by Entertainment Tonight, which you can read here. What I like the most is that the lyrics are in the video and I can finally figure out what Songbird Serenade is singing. She mumbles a wee bit. So, it is a good song! Who knew?

I'd say that the video does not spoil the film even though the song and the animated characters in the video are taken straight from the movie. The song doesn't reflect the story, unless in some sort of abstract way, and the characters are silent and stripped of backdrops and context. The video does give away the artistry of the animation and you get a peek at who the characters in the film are, but not the roles they play.

(By the way, some weeks ago Google threw in a patch that, while it doesn't allow old embed codes for YouTube videos to play, it does throw in an image from the video and a link to the video on YouTube. It's better than a kick in the pants. It's also better than the other option I'd considered, which was to host a screen-grab from a video, post that and use it as link to YouTube. That would be a pain in the rear.)

Book Printing -- Project: Sunflower

Project_Sunflower

Here's another pony fan fiction book print project. After getting burned by Inner Glory and burned harder by The Life And Times of a Winning Pony (I still haven't finished reading that horror), I figured I could do worse than read the first chapter or so of Project: Sunflower, just to be sure. So far, it reads like juvenile fiction. Something for slightly older readers than those expected to buy the My Little Pony chapter books (like, Rarity and the Curious Case of Charity, or, Lyra and Bon Bon and the Mares from S.M.I.L.E.)

Project: Sunflower is a science fiction fantasy set in 2038. It's a doomsday scenario where a black sludge is consuming all life on Earth and will cover the entire planet within five years. One project is to develop a trans-dimensional portal technology and use it as an escape hatch to a suitably habitable planet, as soon as they can find one. You can guess where this is going.

The chapters are quite short. The content of chapter two suggests that this story could end up being a good exploration of humanity's arrogance and sense of entitlement, in a man VS MLP context. A sort of Manifest Destiny in the name of survival. Thus, quite a bit better than say, Redwall.

Link to the story in Fim Fiction: Project: Sunflower

Link to details about the book: Project: Sunflower pictures and details. Payment will be via the same methods used for the Fallout: Equestria books, so it should work fine for most people.

More pictures.

Link to the sign up form for purchasing a Project: Sunflower book. It's hardcover, printed in Sweden and shipping outside of Sweden about doubles the cost of the book to around €70 or over $80 US. Deadline is November 6th.

The movie is in theatres, many theaters, somewhere around the world. So I drove a long way to see it, and a long way back. It was a pretty film. Now I get to read those books I bought a few weeks ago.

There's also this: it's a 'making of MLP the Movie' featurette. It was on TV a week ago or so, but the ban bots got the DailyMotion vid. That download link will let you watch it anyway.

I think there's a fresh episode tomorrow. I will check when I wake up.

Element of Harmony Day

For those of you playing along at home, you probably knew that today was a Harmony Day. My coworkers have had these events imprinted to the point that they can almost remember which Element we'll be celebrating next. That's the power of cake. The pony swag I give away just speeds up the learning process.

The fifth Element is Loyalty, and since the movie came to theatres around here today, I had a movie version of Rainbow Dash on my cake. I made the drawing yesterday. Last minute. It's always last minute with me. Especially when the days get so short.
