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.

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.

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:

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...

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

Week 223 Wrap Up

A horse! A horse! My kingdom for a horse! Or a pony. Or something...

I think this play may still need a bit of editing. I've been told it was written by... some famous guy whose name I can't recall. My brain is like that. But still, half the writing here looks like Princess Luna-speak. I just hope it's not spoken at Princess Luna volume; my eardrums would not be happy about that, and I doubt the audience's eardrums would be either. So yeah, I think this play needs work.

But then again, I'm just a stagehoof here. It's not my job to review the script, it's my job to make sure all the technical work is handled properly. Somepony's gotta set up the scenery, maintain the props, handle the lighting, raise and lower the curtain, and so on and so on. And that pony is me! And the rest of the stage crew of course; I can't do all of that myself! We'd end up looking like a poorly run grade school performance. And something billed as a Great Tragedy shouldn't be in the running for Best Comedy Act, if you get what I mean.

At any rate, I need to get back to work. But if you would like to see what the stage crew does, feel free to take a peek behind the curtain below:

I'm not sure gummy could lift that pony, he seems to think this scene is baloney. - fetchbeer
