Week 230 Wrap Up

Orange you glad I didn't say banana?


Yes, I know I told that joke last week. But seriously, how do you ponies not get that!? It's a classic knock kno- *Tomato to the face!*

Well, that was uncalled for. We're here to tell jokes, not to get involved in a food feud. If that's the kind of show you want, you should take a trip to Trottingham. They're always going on about 'the apples and pears' over there. You know, I never did figure out what exactly they mean by that. Somepony once told me that King Sombra likes them, but I never did figure out what that meant, either...

But enough of that. You're not here to hear me rambling, you're here to hear my knock knock j- *Tomato to the face! Again!*

Alright, alright! I'll stop with the knock knock jokes! Jeez, you ponies are throwing around enough vegetables to supply an all-you-can-eat salad buffet. So how about I just open up the gallery and then leave you all to your food feuds. I think I need a vacation. I wonder what the fjords are like this time of year...

Giant greens are hard to eat, but are quite easy to beat. - fetchbeer

02. G-DO-29--Anagram
Not so much the actual feud, but a little after (approx. 3 days) when you're still riled up or griked in regret. Also an extension of [ATG 226 - Secret]. Bonus points to those who can piece together the story.

Secrets can lead to a broken heart, but maybe your love can restart. - fetchbeer

03. Lemon-Bitter-Twist
Even the Flim Flam brothers might learn not to take on the Apple family.... one day.

I've never seen a trebuchet so large, it would definitely stop a charge. - fetchbeer

04. pony-x
Do you feel lucky? pink!

The face that launched a thousand pies, maybe she should learn to compromise. - fetchbeer

05. Scuri Levenstein

Those turnips are cold at heart, and may give Luna quite a start. - fetchbeer

Week 229 Wrap Up

Orange you glad I didn't say banana?

... Get it? Orange...? Oh c'mon, ponies! This is the oldesss... Actually, I probably shouldn't finish that sentence. Maud Pie may be in the audience.

Hmm... Well, let's try this one then: Have you heard about Harry's recent move into a new tree house? He moved because his old neighborhood was simply unbearable! Get it? Un'bear'able? ...Because Harry is a b-wha-woah! *falls flat on his face*

Hmm... Maybe I should just stay on all fours instead of doing my routines while standing up on my hind legs. I don't think anypony is getting the 'stand up' comedy joke anyways.

Well, you know what? I think it's time I yielded the stage to some ponies who are much more adept at puns than I seem to be. Here they come now:

Gallery for Week 202

01. Speedy526745

Getting your mane all covered in gunk, causes one to enter a vengeful funk. - fetchbeer

02. G-DO-29--Anagram
A bus, in computerland, is whatever the heck connects your various computer parts to other computer parts. A bus, in commuterland, is whatever the heck connects your various commuting locations to other commuting locations. So a computer bus and a commuter bus are basically similar things, but you gotta read to the end of the word to really see the difference. (Basically, the only pony pun that could be pulled off, the plug got pulled.)

Try not to get your homophones confused, or those who fix your stuff will be amused. - fetchbeer

03. Lemon-Bitter-Twist
A pony Bun...

Try not to hang around giant buns, especially when they weigh several tons. - fetchbeer

04. Scuri Levenstein

Never trust a pony in a tracksuit, or you'll soon lose your pony named scoot. - fetchbeer

05. AaronMk
And then Scootaloo was an attack helicopter.

If your wings aren't big enough to fly, just get a device to rule the sky. - fetchbeer

Week 228 Wrap Up

Spooky scary skeletons come creeping... err, crawling...? Uhh...

How did that song go again?

Ah well, that was last week's theme anyways. This week's theme was about rocks! Igneous, metamorphic, sedim... wait, this week's theme isn't A Pony With Rocks? But rocks are all that my new friends talk about. Rocks and rock farms and rock candy and rock soup... and crystals, for the occasional change of pace. Meeting new ponies can be a lot of fun, but sometimes they'll talk your ears off about their passions. But then, old friends sometimes do that too.

But if this week's theme isn't A Pony With Rocks, then what is the theme? Perhaps taking a look through the gallery below, and talking to the ponies doing the same, will shed some light on this. And who knows, perhaps you'll make a new friend among all the new ponies you will meet within.

Gallery for Week 201

01. Speedy526745

A new friend is always sweet, and now to bond with a nice treat. - fetchbeer

02. G-DO-29--Anagram
Not so much the process of meeting new friends, but a little after when you get to know them better. Worst show-and-tell session ever.

Toilets are often overlooked, as bathrooms are always overbooked. - fetchbeer

03. Lemon-Bitter-Twist
A good time to find a new friend is when your life is flashing before your eyes, especially if they can save you.

Some ponies should always watch their step, unless a sudden drop gives them pep. - fetchbeer

04. Scuri Levenstein

Best friends because of a love of rocks, at least they don't just love socks. - fetchbeer

05. Vaser888

A bird makes a good companion, and one not hindered by a canyon. - fetchbeer

Week 227 Wrap Up

Christmas, Christmas time is near
Time for toys and time for cheer...

Wait, wrong holiday. Wrong universe, for that matter. But nonetheless, these two holidays do have some things in common. First of all, candy! Lots and lots of candy! And also costumes! Although in this case, the costumes are a fair bit scarier than an elderly guy in a red suit. Now a sinister green thing in a red suit, on the other hoof; that's scary! Especially if he's coming down your chimney. But that's from yet another universe, thankfully. Right?


Err, let's take our minds off of these scary thoughts by seeing what costumes everypony is wearing this Nightmare Night, shall we?

Gallery for Week 200

01. Goggle Sparks

Where in the world could this pony be? They seem to be predisposed to flee. - fetchbeer

02. Speedy526745

Getting in the shell might cause some pain, but it will protect you from the rain. - fetchbeer

03. Cobralash

This costume is quite well grounded, and someone is certain to be astounded. - fetchbeer

04. Scuri Levenstein

Some are shocked by holidays, hopefully they meet some delays. - fetchbeer

05. G-DO-29--Anagram
Obligatory schism between the candy fetchers and the candy distributors. Plus, if you're given a question whose answers are either A or B but given options C and D to choose from, what answer do you pick?

This comment is made every year, but it just meets a sneer. - fetcbeer

06. HalflingPony
There’s Nothing Under Your Bed!

Do you trust what your parents say, or is there a monster to cause dismay? - fetchbeer

07. Vaser888

This costume is sure to cause dismay, though she's just here to play. - fetchbeer

08. Lemon-Bitter-Twist
Inspired by my son's cosplay of Vampire Vinyl to his local MLP CCG group.

Dripping fangs and spinning discs, the dj knows her jobs risks. - fetchbeer

09. AaronMk
"J'suis le Grand Zombie My yellow belt of choison Ain't afraid of no tom cat Fill my brains with poison"

Bones painted on the fragile skin, show what it's like within. - fetchbeer

Week 226 Wrap Up

It's dangerous to go alone! Take this! What is it, you ask? Well... that's a secret!

What was that you just said? ... "To everybody"? Yes, yes, I'm certainly aware of that particular meme, but Invidlord already used that for the journal entry title.

At any rate, what I just gave you is a genuine secret agent gadget! Indeed, it's so secret that even I don't know what it does! Maybe it fires a laser. Maybe it explodes! Maybe it works as a 4G cellphone. Maybe it turns into a delicious chocolate cake!

Well, actually, that last one is most likely a falsehood. But the pictures below the break are certainly not lies! ...and most likely won't explode either.

Gallery for Week 199

01. Speedy526745

02. Cobralash
Another Steven Universe crossover

03. G-DO-29--Anagram
Nova and Gem's friendship started off being extremely weak and superficial (and by that I mean not very deep by Gem's definitions). For Gem, anything about her "friends", she had to know everything about to ensure she could trust them or leave them. Gem goes too far by unearthing a secret that Nova that wants to keep hidden from the world that he and his aunt only know about. Also, this image is extremely high-resolution that it's hard to appreciate as a low-res thumbnail.

04. Darelith
This is my first time Submitting for the NATG Alumni, hope you all like my drawing!

05. Lemon-Bitter-Twist

06. Scuri Levenstein

07. HalflingPony
Future Pinkie's Secret Past REVEALED

08. AaronMk
Secrets that kill.

Week 225 Wrap Up

Goals are very important things. Yep, goals are VIP's... err, T's. Goals help us to improve by giving us a clear objective to strive for, and steps to follow along the way.

But, one needs to be careful about the goals one chooses, as a poorly chosen goal will pretty well guarantee a lack of success. An obvious example of this is a goal that is too grand or far-reaching to be readily attained. For example, creating a full-blown, AAA-style video game is not a good choice of goals, if one has never done any game design or programming work before. Another classic example of a bad goal is winning the lottery. Lotteries aren't skill-based; they are pure random chance. Thus, they are not something that one can improve with practice.

Of course, there are other types of goals out there. Like the kind you score when you kick a ball into a net. But whatever one's goal may be, it certainly feels great to attain it! Just ask the ponies below:

Sometimes giants are quite kind, though their footprints are still maligned. - fetchbeer

02. Scuri Levenstein

Stamping things into the ground, they may wish that they had drowned. - fetchbeer

Week 224 Wrap Up

We're not gonna take it!
No, we ain't gonna take it!
We're not gonna take it

Wait, what was that? ...'visit sister'? Oh, I thought you said 'Twisted Sister'. Oopsie...

At any rate, this week's theme is... what was that? You want to our sister right now? But the gallery is opening tonight! We need to make sure everything all set and.... oh alright, fine. I really don't think this is a good idea, but I never win an argument with you anyways. Seriously, I'm amazed you don't have a Sad Puppydog Eyes cutie mark.

The things I do for family...

Gallery for Week 197

01. Speedy526745

Sometimes you just want to pose, and done right it just glows. - fetchbeer

02. Lemon-Bitter-Twist

A pair of ponies with awesome moves, so very smooth on their hooves. - fetchbeer

03. pony-x

A card to show your love and care, or even just to say your there. - fetchbeer

04. HalflingPony
Four Words You Never Want to Hear Your Stylist Say

One clumsy snip and all is lost, it may be fixed, but at what cost? - fetchbeer

05. AaronMk
There is a love so strong it can beat evil spirits. Although, it may really just twist its desire.

If one can't decide to kill or cuddle, it just leaves you in a muddle. - fetchbeer
