  • Sun, 12:10: .@foalpapers needs to see this one. /RT @TDot_Babs: This is, hooves down, the BEST PMV I have ever seen!!!!!
  • Sun, 12:16: These Ponies Didn't Start the Fire
  • Sun, 12:49: Saw yesterday's pony EP. Other than the sandworm, I expect to forget the whole thing in about 10 minutes. At least Cadence got some action.
  • Sun, 12:50: No, wait, I tell a lie. Dubious AppleJack was also good. :)
  • Sun, 12:50: Still. "Discord is a troll, ponies fall for it" has gotten old fast.
  • Sun, 12:55: Oh, one question re: yesterday's ep-- has Discord always been in the S4 credits, or was that added for this one? I'll have to check.
  • Sun, 13:05: Now I'm sittin' here thinking re: how I react to comments on my work. A steady diet of "It's awesome!" gets ignored as much as "It stinks!"
  • Sun, 13:06: Well, not ignored. Praise always feels good. :) But without specifics, it doesn't help me get better.
  • Sun, 13:07: Of course, most fans aren't English majors, y'know? So they don't have a lot of "literary critique" chops. They just know they like it.
  • Sun, 13:08: And really, that's perfectly cool and I love 'em to pieces for it. But a detailed and specific piece of praise or critique sinks in.
  • Sun, 13:09: Coming at it the other way, as a fan responding to a work, I try to keep that in mind.
  • Sun, 13:09: I also try not to say anything as a general comment I wouldn't be willing to say directly to the artist's face, 'cos, y'know, they're real.
  • Sun, 13:10: And you never know when your comments will get back to the person.
  • Sun, 13:11: The artist might not see my comment in context, either. It's not unusual to say 10 great things and 1 bad thing, and they only see the bad.
  • Sun, 13:13: Anyway. "This episode was forgettable" is hardly tearing an artist a new one. And one person's "forgettable" is another's "brilliant."
  • Sun, 13:15: S4 has still been quite good overall, and I'm eager for the Weird Al guest spot. :)
  • Sun, 13:16: The AJ/Pinkie ep. set a real high bar for the rest of the season to live up to, tho. ;)
  • Sun, 13:17: ...and that's enough about that. I'm supposed to be drawing! Back to work. #AmDrawing #GneCoDraMo
  • Sun, 13:21: Oh! Oh! That reminds me-- did anyone else notice that Weird Al's pony had cheese hooves? What they did thar, I saw it.
  • Sun, 13:23: RT @CrossbowROoF: @the_gneech And this shows the differences between fans. I actually considered that one somewhat forgettable, and I love …
  • Sun, 13:23: *points at that RT* See? You can't please everyone.
  • Sun, 13:26: RT @CrossbowROoF: @the_gneech Nor should you try. Try to please everyone and you won't please anyone. (And not that the ep was bad, just n…
  • Sun, 13:27: It -is- possible to get to the stage of "be acceptable by almost everyone," by being incredibly bland. See "elevator music."
  • Sun, 13:28: But that's not really a place most artists want to be, obviously.
  • Sun, 13:29: I have a lot more respect for distinctive art that isn't to my taste, than for something that offends no one, by having nothing to say.
  • Sun, 13:32: "At least it's distinctive!" is something I say quite often about things that aren't to my taste, but I still respect.
  • Sun, 13:47: You know what I love about @tmbg? Songs like "Eight Hundred and Thirteen Mile Car Trip." They sing about ANYTHING. And that's cool.
  • Sun, 13:52: RT @foalpapers: Photoset: This is just painfully beautiful. Twilight Sparkle would agree.
  • Sun, 13:52: Ping @laurierobey (c/o @foalpapers #BlameFoalpapers)
  • Sun, 13:58: Dear breasts: I love you, but you are hard to draw. >.> Please forgive me if I mess up.
