Week 350 Wrap Up

Double, double, toil and trouble.
Fire burn and cauldron bubble.
Scale of dragon that once was hooved.
Voice of 'corn that hath others soothed.
Whisker of shifter of primal mien.
Hair of mare with aquatic sheen.
Scale of sea prince oft emersed.
Feather of maid who might be cursed.

Into this cauldron of water hot,
And brewed into tonics many have sought.
Chilled with tales that long hath stood.
Then this writ is firm and good.

Week 349 Wrap Up

The moment I've been waiting for has come! The time is now. I know what I need to do. I need... (pause for dramatic effect)... to write this week's Blogger entry! I feel like I've been training all my life for this moment! Or at least the last five years, give or take a few months. And after all that time and practice...

I've got nothing. I choked. Like, complete and total brain fart here. So I'll just have to do the only thing I can do: Open up the Gallery and showcase all the ponies training for their big day. Here's hoping they don't choke as well.

Week 348 Wrap Up

They say, "One is the loneliest number." But they also say, "We're number one!", so I think that first saying is a load of horseapples. They also say, "It's lonely at the top," but I wouldn't know the truth of that.

But I digress. I hope everyone hasn't been feeling too lonely this week, given that being alone has been this week's theme and all. But then, being alone doesn't always entail feeling lonely. Introverts in particular, like myself, need time alone to recharge their batteries for future social interactions.

But the time to dwell on such things is nearly at an end, for the Gallery is about to officially open!

Week 347 Wrap Up

That's Princess Vile Betrayer to you! Oh wait, sorry about that. I had a certain movie running on repeat in my mind, and got carried away. Don't you hate it when your thoughts betray you like that? Hmm... But does that truly count as being betrayed by one's thoughts, or just a lack of focus? I'm not really sure.

It could be that I've just got betrayal on the mind because that has been the theme for this week's Gallery. A veritable treasure of traitors awaits within! And that is not a phrase I would have expected to say, but art can have that effect at times.

Well, it seems that the deadline has been reached; either my clocks have betrayed me or I got distracted. Err... it was totally the clocks' fault. Totally. But yes, the time for the opening of the Gallery is at hand, and must not be delayed any further.

Week 346 Wrap Up

Brick-a-brack-a firecracka, shish boom baaaa...ah'm not feeling this. I think I've made that reference before, anyways. Being a cheerleader is not easy when you're not exactly the most energetic of ponies, but at least I'm not out on the field. Seriously, how do those ponies maintain that kind of energy level? Constantly running and spinning and diving and leaping; I get tired just thinking about it.

Which is why I prefer my work here at the Gallery. Not nearly as much running around involved. Well, usually... Things do get pretty hectic around here when a major villain is on the loose, but that's usually only twice a year at most. And that's much easier to deal with than trying to keep up that pace through a full season of a typical sport.

But enough about that. It is time to open the Gallery this evening, so let us go ahead and do just that.

Week 345 Wrap Up

I don't know what to write here, so I'm just gonna call this done. Goodnight, everypony!


Yeah, I don't think I could actually get away with that. But it's hard to write when you don't know what to write... which should probably get the response, "Hello, Captain Obvious." But it is nonetheless true. Perhaps I should seek out Mystery Inc., and see if they can find me some clues on what I should write. But sadly, I do not have time for such an endeavor. Or for much of anything else, for that matter. So let's turn our attention to this week's gallery, and see if any of the resident artist have any clue on what to do.

Week 344 Wrap Up

You're probably wondering what all that banging and clanging is. Well, we had planned on doing renovations over the course of the week, with said renovations being completed on Friday. But we ran into a few complications. And by 'complications', I mean the summoning of Shala Lala the Shuddering Horror. Eldritch entities appearing in the middle of town doesn't exactly speed up one's projects. Of course, this is Ponyville, a town that comes under attack by powerful supernatural entities on a regular basis. So the construction ponies had factored in such a potential assault when they planned out their work, and thus expected to be finished by now anyways.

But then, the Inferno Empire attacked. Overlord Vulcanus and his incendiary minions didn't stick around for long, quickly deciding that discretion was the better part of valor after Princess Twilight threw Shala Lala at them (Of all the days they could have picked for their invasion, it had to be the one when the 'stars were right'), but their brief presence in town still added to the overall destruction wreaked that day.

But thankfully, the Gallery is still able to open this evening. While the builders aren't finished with their work, they have found some inventive new ways of getting the work done without impeding the visitors. Specifically, finishing the main hall first, then worrying about the side rooms. Which doesn't really seem 'inventive' or 'new' to me, but who am I to argue with the ponies that keep this oft-cursed town from collapsing?
