• Nightly Roundup #1128 - Sunset is Awesome Edition

    Now that is a really lovely EqG drawing of Sunset Shimmer! I really hope she gets to come back to Equestria at least for an episode. It'd be funny to see her get used to being a pony again.

    News time my friends, get it after the break! Big thanks to Seth for covering last night while I watched Edge of Tomorrow and Summer Wars.

    New Pony Podcast - The Wonderbronies!

    The Wonderbronies is a new Brony show hosted by Lovinity Hearts and The Brony Critic. It is set to begin with a pre-season episode on February 15th, and then weekly shows starting one week before the Season 5 premiere of MLP. On the show, we will be giving in-depth reviews and critique on My Little Pony episodes. But not only that, we will also be reviewing and critiquing some of the Brony works as well, from fanfics to animations to art and more. We will also be inviting some famous Bronies on the show as well as some Bronies looking to just get some exposure. And finally, we will be playing Brony music, both popular and ones deserving a listen to.
    The show will be hosted on a Google Hangouts which will be streamed live through Lovinity Community radio. This allows others to request to, and be, a guest on the show fairly easily. In addition, our past episodes will be available for listening from our website or from a podcast feed. Also, our radio track requesting system will allow you to request Brony tracks you want to hear during our show on our website. And finally, we will allow Bronies and Brony organizations to correlate with us and have underwriting during the show for a small donation to support the radio station. This will allow Bronies to get more exposure, whether it'd be for their music, services, cause, or just them in general. And in return these donations will help us keep the website and radio running.
    For more information about the show, please check out the official page at http://lovinity.org/radio_wonderbronies .

    The Reformation of Discord: A Utilitarian Story - Part II

    In Part I of this two part exploration of Discord's reformation, I drew upon utilitarian philosopher Henry Sidgwick to argue that Discord's reformation could be viewed as a story of the conflict between egoism and utilitarian ethics. Sidgwick argued that this conflict was logically irreconcilable as the decision to be one or the other came own to one decision: the willingness to put your own interests aside for the greater good.

    In Part II of this exploration I will analyze Discord's reformation through the lens of Sidgiwck's view of the role of sympathy and the duty of benevolence in the utilitarian ethic. In doing so, I argue that Discord's story can serve as an example of how one can transition away from the egoistic philosophy. I can also explain why Fluttershy was the best choice of pony to reform Discord despite my arguments that Pinkie Pie is already a utilitarian of sorts.
