Three of us go see one of Maude's stand-up routines. Epilogue to the in-progress Rock Solid Friendship review. With HeartsyArtsy (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCBmEH7z5j6ntfqj951BGiPw) and PsiStarPsi (https://psistarpsi.deviantart.com/), and featuring Jocelyn Kirby (https://crescentlady.com) as the voice of Maude.
A review of MLP Season 8's first half-season. Wherein our host shares his thoughts on how these 13 episodes stack up. Shadows of Corruption, mentioned in tghe video, is available here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S-giS42nfPQ&t=284s So annotations are no longer a thing and end cards have weird restrictions so I had to do it as a card, which isn't quite what I wanted. Oh well, I'll figure something out for the future.
AKA The Geology of My Little Pony Part 1 aka Episode IV: A New Pie. The opening theme is a poorly-sung and parodical rendition of the "Star Wars Theme" by John Williams. The ending them is a similarly parodical rendition of the "My Little Pony" TV series (aka Gen1) by Hasbro Studios (individual writer not available).

Ok so something messed up last time, hopefully this will work. This was my audition for RoundTrip's video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=db1GAgcaIDU The person he did get I agree was better, but I had fun doing this. Ending visual is a test for an upcoming review.

The introduction to an in-the-works review of the MLP Season 7 episode "Rock Solid Friendship." Been awhile since I posted anything... and this is most of what I have to show for it. I now have great respect for people that manage to do this sort of thing in a non-ridiculous amount of time.

Well this wound up rather longer than intended. I might do a "snappier" cut at a later date.

Wherein our host and guest go off on long tangents that are cut, resulting in awkward cuts. A half-blind commentary/review of the My Little Pony episode "Maude Pie." Half as the guest (Tyler C. https://sites.google.com/site/tjcookmusic/) had not seen the episode before, but the host had. Actual video of the episode not included for legal reasons, but if you have a legal copy, feel free to watch along!

Wherein our host further questions the wisdom of not doing the commentary while watching. My Little Pony episode considered is Pinkie Pride. Featuring Tyler C (tjcookmusic.com)

Review of My Little Pony Season 6 Episode 10: Applejack's Day Off. Wherein we find that ponies apparently have sophisticated plumbing systems and attendant materials science. No video for "Flutter Brutter" as I couldn't think of anything sciencey to say about it.
A brief analysis of A Hearth's Warming Tail, drawing parallels with A Christmas Carol Notice: There is no video for S6E9, both so I can work on panels (as mentioned in this video), and because I did not have any unique observations on it.

A brief analysis of the season 6 episodes of "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic", "Cart Before The Pony" and "28 Pranks Later". Wherein I figure out how to use titles and severely misremember part of one of the episodes. Also, I later realized an additional problem with the solution in the titles. Namely, at least a quarter of the way into the race, Rarity is still going down-hill when she reaches the intersection. That is simply not possible with unpowered carts for the track shape depicted. In reality, the writer and animators just did not think it through, I'm sure, but I'm trying to come up with an explanation in-universe. Now all I got is that the scenes are not shown in order and Rarity's wing-blocking (where she's going downhill on a pretty clear gradient) actually occurred in the first leg of the race and is just shown later. ...I'd make another video for all this, but at this point that's more trouble than it's worth. I'll shoehorn it into some other video.
A review of Season 6, Episode 6: Second Prances. Couldn't tie much science into this one. The fanfic I mention in the video is found here: http://www.fimfiction.net/story/324420/starlight-glimmer-does-not-want-to-make-friends-with-trixie

Here's a quick cover of "Time Adventure", from the Adventure Time finale. Right now it is just me but I am thinking perhaps a video with a bunch of fans edited together (perhaps with Rebecca Sugar's Comic Con performance as the base) could be cool. If anyone wants to do that, or knows of such an effort already underway, let me know.

Here's my take on the third episode of this season. Featuring: Infinity percent more abstract paintings! Slight better video editing! And then there's Maud! I likely will not do a review of "Cutie Marked", partly for personal reasons but partly because I'm trying to get in someone to explain what Maude was saying in this episode and put that up next week instead. The ending them is a poorly-sung and parodical rendition of the "My Little Pony" TV series (aka Gen1) by Hasbro Studios (individual writer not available).
