They should SO make a Christmas special
3 albums in 2 hours?
@Bombedrumbum<_< Doesn't Winter Wrap Up cover that? Or the actual concept?
@wackyteenWinter Wrap Up mentions "awesome holidays." Assuming they follow the northern hemisphere calendar, that would include Christmas.
Celestia looks pretty good in a scarf/sweater....at least it's not pink.
I failed to hear anything pony related in #3, please correct me if I'm mistaken to believe it is completely unrelated to ponies.
@wackyteen well, winter wrap-up takes place at the end of winter, not the start of it. I mean a christmas/holiday special where it focuses on the actual holiday season, not ending winter
@Tony1695No, it would imply possible gift giving.Christmas implies that Christ was a major figure in Equestria.
@tony1695 true, true....
@wackyteen WWU is the transition to spring, which is three months after the solstice.However the christmas piece was quite chipper; change from electronic to physical instruments, it might be the music to an Xmas special
I really like the Eufeion - Equestria, it's got a good beat to it, I wanna hear more, heheh.
@wackyteen or they could do a santa claus one, like most other kids shows.
@BombedrumbumWhat would we call the holiday?
@wackyteen we could call it whatever we want (possibly start a fan-name even), but if Hasbro wants to do it, its their call
@wackyteen if Hasbro were actually going to do it, then they would probably call it Christmas (or something VERY close to it) considering that it is, after all, a show for little kids
*sigh* Same thing with #1, I would really like to add more songs to my pony playlist, but having these songs that don't have any actual pony in them just keeps preventing me from adding them. I can accept #1 a bit easier though, since it just gave off the right kind of vibe, I guess, but it still didn't make it on the pony playlist, sadly.
@jelfes its a good song, nonetheless. That such a song would be dedicated to ponies, wouldn't that make it a pony song essentially? I can see your argument, that it doesnt have any real pony in it, but it IS dedicated to ponies. Its your call, anyway
@Bombedrumbumbut calling it Christmas makes no literal sense, seeing as Equestria lacks Christ or a Christ esque figure.Not to mention Equestria isn't even on Earth, so it's not like they can observe it because the rest of the planet does.
Yeah, I can accept that it was dedicated to ponies, and I'm sure it was, but I can't actually accept it into my pony playlist unless there's actually pony in it.I've heard many songs before that were, "dedicated," to ponies, but I couldn't find any relation in tone theme, or anything that made it sound like it was made with ponies in mind.
@wackyteen well, that is a good point. Like I said, its up to Hasbro if they want to do it.
@Jelfesyou need to lighten up.I have songs with no relation, AT ALL, to Ponies in my pony folder. <.<
@wackyteen So listen, I just made the song. I didn't get into deep thought about if ponies have Christmas or not. Ponies have haloween, right? Why not they have Christmas?? It's a song guys.And thanks for the positive feedback!
@Jelfes what about "A Waltz for Trixie" by Makkon? I thought that you said that it was one of less than five songs that you actually thought were beautiful from this fandom? It doesnt have pony in it, just piano, bells, and violin (i may be wrong about the instruments). It was dedicated to ponies with ponies in mind just like this was.
Celestiamas, when ponies celebrate the birth of Celestia.
Sure thing, mr. pickle. And isnt halloween technically in Fall (Autumn)?
@Michael Arellano(mrpickle)Didn't mean to start an arguement...but Ponies have Nightmare Night, IIRC. not Halloween. <.<
@Flutterfanoh, fuck yes. LET'S DO IT.
@Flutterfan good idea. So it was created when Celestia defeated Discord, thus saving Equestria? Or what would it symbolize then?
DERP. I didnt read the whole comment, did I?
Wait, when WAS Celestia born, anyway? or, rather, just how old IS Celestia??
If only we had somebody from Hasbro reading/commenting on this post.......
1. Yah... I seriously listen to this everywhere I go for some reason. Great job, Mike.3. This was awesome as well! I liked the melody quite a bit.@Jelfes I'm somewhat alright with you saying stuff like that about my tracks... but you must honestly have NO CLUE how inspiration works and how it affects a piece; Ponies all up in this bitch.Also great music... can't believe you'd decide to miss out on track #1, but hay, who am I?
Well there is a Christmas-style outfit in the shop window in The Ticket Master, so there is definitely some sort of resemblance!
I'm still shocked Beyond Her Garden hasn't been featured here yet...
@Overkillius your ovekillius, aren't you?Okay, okay, jokes aside. Music that's dedicated to something is also inspired by that something. In this case, ponies. When inspiration and dedication go together, it makes for a wonderful output. Whether it is full-on pony or merely dedicsted to ponies, it is still a pony song. Inspiration a TON of the piece by the way
@Kixu it was featured yesterday
wow, I made a lot of errors when typing that....
@BombedrumbumAbout this whole Christmas conversation:There are a few things that don't make sense given the context of the show. See: Pinkie pies #1 foam finger thingy. How did she know what to model it after?Christmas is fine, if not Christmas then just call it the winter holidays...infact ignore most of this post and just focus on"just call it the winter holidays..."
@Bombedrumbum That is a good point. There are exceptions, A Waltz For Trixie being one of them for multiple reasons, one reason being that Makkon is known, by me at least, to be a renowned artist of ponies. I didn't mean to imply A Waltz For Trixie as such a song that I don't hear any correlation between it and the show. Another reason being that I actually think it very likely that Trixie would do something very similar to what she did in the fic based on the song. I hold it as more of a head-canon type of pony song, than an actual one, however much I wish it to be a real one, its beauty would have been ruined by any pony sound effects. Best way I can describe it is to say that it is an honorary pony song, ranking far above many more of the, 'real,' pony songs.
Seth, you know how you said "happy music time?"? Well, I'm sorry for not being happy about the music. Thank you, for the music is good
I'm pretty sure ponies celebrate Festivus.
@Jelfes well-spoken, good sir. I agree with you about the music and hold Makkon in the same (if not higher) respect, due to him being the reason that i'm a brony
@Overkillius Pinkie Pie is Pinkie Pie. That's all you'll ever need knowing. She can break the fourth wall and has mysterious powers..........as seen by the banner
@Overkillius Also, if I sounded like I was saying that all music without direct relation to the show sucked, then I apologize, because I didn't mean that at all. I don't just throw all those songs in a, 'piece o' shit,' bin or whatever, I do add them to a playlist, but they will not end up in my pony playlist unless they are exceptionally well done.My reasoning for wanting the music to be more pony related is because I listen to my pony playlist far more often than any other playlist I've got. As I've said before, I'm large on organization, so making exceptions to my organizational method does not happen often, nor is it a choice made easily.
@Jelfes I too am large on organization, and even in the same respect. Thus, I have a mlp pony folder, and just a basic, simple favorites folder. Therefore, I can put the pony songs in both, while at the same time not tainting the pony folder. (I don't really mean to be harsh by saying tainting, but thats the best word that I can come up with at the moment)
@Bombedrumbum Yeah, I'm sort of crazy about organization. :PI suppose what you did is a viable option.It's really creepy just how much we have in common; I saw that you had mentioned you hadn't watched star trek at all, guess who else hasn't!?
Great minds think alike?
@Jelfes I'm the same way for the most part. Sorry if I seem like a douche about this stuff; I just hate the notion that my stuff (or even my peers stuff) is seen as just some music with ponies slapped on it to make it more popular or something, because it isn't.
@Bombedrumbum I guess so!
@Jelfes Welcome to the party Twilight Sparkle ^.^ Seriously, that was a very Twi thing to say. I'm so proud ^.^
@Jelfes you wouldnt happen to be a musician, would you? Because THEN i'd be worried
1. Already seen it, but I still love it.2. Very nice album!3. Catchy.
I really like #3. All the songs are a little too similar to really enjoy back to back, but if you spread them out they're pretty good.
i thot the christmast in ponyville wud be a christmast in hollywood remixd thing:D still good tho
@Flasht Haha, I guess it was. A long time ago, in some random post I ended up talking about why I found the show, as well as the characters, so enjoyable/relatable.I proposed it was because I hold the same interests as each of the mane 6. Twilight- Eagerness to learn(though I still hold the fault she had of being a recluse), Fluttershy- caring for all living things, no matter their size, Rainbow- Love of aviation(I even want to be a fighter jet pilot, that is only if programming doesn't work out though), Pinkie- Really random(What I'm typing now is proof in and of itself. Also, my whole family has ADHD so I can assume that ties in with my randomness a bit.), Applejack- Honest(Though, sometimes I'm brutally honest, to the point where feelings may be hurt, but I think knowing the truth is, more often than not, better than living in a world of lies), and last, Rarity- Generosity(I really don't go too far beyond the average person's generosity, but I have my moments)Note: That whole rant is just my Pinkie-ness acting up.
@Bombedrumbum I did play the trumpet and, I've always wanted to learn the piano or any other orchestral string instrument.
@Jelfes wow. I once took up the bugle for a while to learn to play taps and other such songs. Other than that, I only play the piano. About the emotions, I tend to be blunt, if not.brutally honest sometimes. Pretty much the same thing with the other mane 6 emotions, though. Almost creepy....
@Bombedrumbum No, I think it's past creepy now, haha.
@Jelfes I really don't know what to say.....
Well, the banner isnt helping matters.....
Yeah, Pinkamena isn't helping going all The Ring.
I never really liked cupcakes, too much frosting
Well, there's another thing, I hate frosting too.
holy frijoles this is weird
Im not mexican, but who cares
You wouldnt happen to have been good at math?
How about pickles?
I dont usually eat pickles. Please tell me that you love them
Oh, well, sort of, I struggle to learn most things because I usually learn by example, but yeah, I'd say I'm moderately good at math. I know what's necessary for programming at least!
Nope, I hate pickles, they make me vomit.
Okay, that's a difference. I was always good at math, even taking pre-algebra in the fifth grade, and I know the basics for programming as well. Nothing special, just the basics
@Jelfes SHOOP DA WOOP ME RIGHT NOW, SAME HERE
*close enough*I like how we've taken over this two hour old post.
I for one welcome our new brony overlords
Off topic from our already off topic posts, my blogger has gained nearly 300 views today, just passing 3,400. Why is my page looked at so often?! I decided to add a link to my Twitter account because of all those views, trying to keep the people looking at it entertained, and hopefully get some artistic assistance with my two person pony game project.
Ill admit to five of those being mine. I was checking the abnormal.rate of your viewcount
Heheh, yeah, it has its days.
OKAY, I KNOW THAT I HAD 700 YESTRTDAY
@Bombedrumbum Good job taking over the post guys.
@the official halo 3 podcastThank you
Gaining popularity, huh? Or at least public awareness.
@The Official Halo 3 PodcastAs best said by Discorded Rarit, "MINE!"
Like your 3400 view count?.....Is gaining awareness a GOOD thing?
Hey, sharing is caring!! After all, he did reply to ME! So it's MINE, ALL MINE!! *evil fluttershy laugh*
*Flutterbitch mode activated*You know what else is all yours?! This bucket on YOUR FACE!
Ugh, how do you do that? Link links to things (like deviant art) under different wording (like shrug pony)? Thats always bothered me
You know what else is ours?ALL YOUR POST ARE BELONG TO US
This may be difficult, I know what I will do!(a href="http://www.youfail.org/")(/a)I just chose that link because I like that song, not because you fail.Change the parentheses to this "<" or this ">"
Wow, we've really commented a lot......
The text that will link to the image will in between the two sets of the greater than less than symbols.
Here goes nothing:Here's the best website ever!!
Derp. Lemme try again
Eeyup, nothing.(a href="place link here")put text to be linked here(/a)
best website ever
Yay. And then the bold/italicized text?
(b)(/b) (i)(/i) (u)(/u)
And to combine bold and italics, or italics and underline?
I'm gonna test somethingInteresting, you can't post when you add a Horizontal RuleTo combine, just nest them. (b)(i) like this, but it doesn't matter what order you end or start them in(/i) (/b)
It seems you are restricted from using underline (u) or horizontal rule (hr)
seems that breaks (br) are also allowed.
(top of the hour; new post is coming)
Horizontal rule is a solid version of the dotted lines separating these comments.
I dont care, just thought that I should remind you
Okay, so to use bold and such, you just nest them together? Then the horizontal rule comes in where?
Horizontal rule isn't used, it also isn't allowed (you cant post a comment when either (u) or (hr) are in them), it would be used much like the dotted lines separating our comment posts
So no underlining things? why??
Okay, I think I get it now
Well, I would assume they don't allow such tings to prevent spam of it, if you ever go into a livestream people always activate all three text modifiers so their text is noticed more, but everyone does it so it doesn't work.I would just say it is because having bold and italics is already enough to give to us, not to mention links.
Okay, thats understandable
Wow. You guys talk a lot.
We've been discovered, abandon post!
Thats a cool tip......AARGH!! BRONIES HO!!!!
Holy crap. Over 100 comments in this music post. There's been some serious discussing going on. Mainly by Jelfes & Bombedrumbum it looks like. lol
Its taken them this long to notice? Well, at least some of the conversation can help fellow, new bronies
@Octavia Like bawwsses
Im just glad that none of the blogponies (like seth) have noticed yet
Wait, can they ban us from EqD?
I feel like it'll be our fault if this post makes it onto popular posts
I don't know, their haven't been any cases of bannings though... I think. We're not really doing anything wrong here, just commenting, albeit unrelated to he post.
I just want to see (read, whatever) one of the blogponies reactions, nonetheless
We've commented so much that we've passed the number of comments on, well, sheeiitt, pretty much every nightly and drawfriend...
wanna take over another post? (lol, jk)
Eenope, lol. There's only 6 posts in the past three pages with more comments, a few of them just barely...
Lol! Even the one year anniversary post is within sight!
*feels bad brony*
I feel ashamed......
So how'd you become a brony?
At least we can feel ashamed together...
Ah, yes, might as well, screw commenting in the correct post!This may take a while, time to formulate a large response for that.
Also, Screw replying with @Jelfes and such! The post is OURS!!
We stopped doing that almost exactly two hours ago, lol
Its been 20 minutes.....wow
How Jelfes became a brony, Chapter 1... lol jkIt all started with my multimedia and web design class(where I learned HTML). In that class, I had a few good friends, one of which, was a brony. At the same time, I had my classes at DigiPen, away from my home high school; in that class I also had a few good friends(eventually the whole class), again, one was a brony(from what I knew at the time, that is). So this is where it becomes confusing, I don't know exactly when I became a brony, nor do I know which of the two friends from different schools made me a brony. While at DigiPen I received exposure to the fan made content from Ponibooru, and while at my HS, I just had someone to talk to about the show(I wasn't a brony yet). One day, around the time that EqD had 1 Million views, I watched the first episode, then the second, and the third, I couldn't stop watching... (it would have gone on, but I had time restrictions that came with taking 9 classes at once) from that day on till the weekend I fit in as much MLP:FiM as I could get(once I hit the weekend I finished all the remaining episodes). Upon the first day of returning to school after mare-athoning every available episode, I was actually able to have a pony conversation with my HS brony friend, so I would say that was the official marker as to when I became a brony among the community.Later in the year, something epic happened, I discovered that nearly every single one of the people in my DigiPen class was a brony... that's about 20 bronies... all in the same room... everyday, how epic is that?!Random somewhat relevant information:It wasn't till about the time that Sethisto no longer allowed Anons to post comments that I actually made an account.I joined the herd with no resistance, I never questioned why I was watching My Little Pony, nor did I ever make fun of any of my brony friends before I became oneThe friend from DigiPen is the notorious, "Am I Late Yet?" He's also the person that I'm working with on the Mortal Pony game you can find out about on my Twitter.
Care to go into depth on your story? I've got plenty of time.
Okay, but its not really as in-depth as yours. First off, I go to a small high-school, with only about 100 kids in the high school part of it. Now, I was pretty much the only guy there who was familiar with the interwebs, and thus I didnt really have anybody to tell me about the brony culture. After a while, I saw a few brony related things, and decided to see what all the fuss was about. So I looked it up on youtube and saw some videos. (this is in April). So I didnt really think much about it at the time, until about early June, when a song by Makkon (can't really say that it was a single song, just mixture of them all that were out at the time) got me so curious about how such epic music could come from such a show, that I finally decided to check it out. Thus, I watched the first episode (watched isnt really the word to describe it, I more of kinda observed it, not really knowing what was going on) and then the next, and then the next. It was around episode eight that I stopped, realizing that it was 2:00 AM and I still had work to do. (even now, I still have some stuff to do, yet somehow, I maintain straight A's) after that, I sort-of skipped through the episodes, only watching those which looked interesting. It wasnt until the last episode (i had only watched about half of the episodes) that I realized that I had become a brony. So I went back and watched the ones that I missed, and even re-watched a fair amount of them. So, I started frequenting EqD around late July/early August, and whaddya know, I'm a brony. Pretty soon after, I saw a post dedicated to Makkon, and thats when I started reading the comments. Which then led to me creating Bombedrumbum, which is this account right here. The name Bombedrumbum is.actually another story in itself, however.So bottom line, if it werent for Makkon, I dont know if I ever would have had the motivation to become a brony. Ever.
Interesting, indeed! I only wish that I had known of the fandom earlier and gotten in on some more of the content.
Same here. I found out about it all by myself though, which is an accomplishment in itself.
Since then, I have converted one other person, and am in the process of converting another
I'm in the process of converting one as well, once he's converted then the rest shall follow as well, I hope...
Who will take over the world first: bronies, or China?
Not chinese bronies
GOOD. my convertee was worrying and asked me that question.
You've got him there right now? Or did he just ask that before?
He asked that before
Ah, hehe, seemed like a ridiculous thing to ask after I posted that, being that we're both on the west coast. Whatever! I found out you can use the HTML tags on the blogger page, I made mine much prettier now, not just a giant wall of text filled with dashes now! Hooray!
Well done, Jelfes, well done. Hey- you added princess bride to movies! No, you just recently added it. Since I had added it to mine
I am SO getting a Twitter
Added it some time last week, Yeah, I added it once I saw you had it because I hadn't remembered it till then. Inconceivable, I know!
You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means
Ferris Beuler's day off has always arbitrarily been my, "favorite movie," and I don't even know why, sure it's good, bu it just doesn't compare with Princess Bride.
I feel the same way. Princess Bride is just a timeless classic. Same with the Charlie Brown movies. I actually still have a vcr tape of "Bon Voyage, Charlie Brown" where snoopy and woodstock go to a bar, and Chalie and Linus go to France. I dunno, its just something from my childhood
There ya go. I just created a twitter. And I think im following you. Not really sure. Im Amish level at this
Snoopy and Woodstock definitely played a roll in my childhood as well, I wasn't exactly big on the Charlie brown movies back then, but looking at them now, they're good.
Why, yes, you are following me! How much creepier can this whole thing get, now we're following each other...Ha, yeah, I was never into social networking, Twitter is the first I've used in many years, even then, I barely use it.
Well, I have a twitter follower. I feel accomplished
I don't know if it's safe to consume all this Jelfes and Bombedrumbum at onceEufeion made an MLP themed track? Me gusta, I enjoy some of his other work, I imagine I'll enjoy this :D
Hahaha, can't wait to see the Eurobronies reactions when they get on to catch up on the posts. Definitely coming back to this one!
We already got one! Sup, Hardbeat!
Okay, im subscribed to this post by email now
@BombedrumbumHey Bombedrumbum :DNot a eurobrony but Australian, same deal with crazy timezones, lol
I am as well
Lol! Well, with more 200 blogger views than when I woke up today, a new twitter account, and a complete invasion of a random post, I say that this day is well spent
Eeyup, pretty successful day!
End with a brohoof
@Bombedrumbum Oh, yeah, what's the story behind your username?
Aww man, you going?
Meh, I should probably tell you tomorrow. I get up at 5:50 AM to ACDC highway to hell (because its the first song on my ipod), so ill be getting 4 1/2 hours of sleep. I think thats enough, considering I have some testing tomorrow
Sorry, but I think that a simple brohoof if proper
alright, good night! *brohoof*
Thanks to all who have listened & commented on Equestria on Soundcloud. The "Equestria" name gave me the inspiration for the track. The track it's self is 100% original :
OOPS. I forgot to put a link if my free downloads ran out for Story of Equestria. I'll do that right now!
Added Mediafire download to my album since free downloads ran out.
So, how about that Username story, Bombedrumbum?
Ah, yes, that.... Just a sec
Ahh! My phone! It be trolling!!I am doing all of this on a Droid smartphone, which just happened to need a software uptade right then. So, I managed to tyoe three sentences before it was all deleted. So.....next comment! (sorry so much for the wait)
No problem, I'm working on proof reading for CoffeeGrunt right now.
So, when I was still a little kid, about 8 years old, I used to love to play computer games. Dont get me wrong, i wasn't obsessed or anything, I just did it sometimes in my spare time. Eventually I was shown the game "the battle for wesnoth" which is an very strategic game. It was usually very hard for me, being a little kid as I was. Now, the game had a random name generator, (which comes in handy if you ever need a name that sounds cool), and one of the names was Bombedrumbum. Now, this name didnt go to any character, it went to the one character on the one time that I actually owned at the game. That character........was a tree. But oh, did that tree own..... Now, this might come of as an extremely random way of getting a name, but its one of those things that you just remember from your childhood. And so I did. Now even my youtube and twitter accounts (made the youtube one in commemeration of the first anniversary of mlp fim) are decked out tree-style. Random, but true story bro
