Are stallions obsolete?

New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd once wrote a book called Are Men Necessary? (Did I read it? Well, yes.) This weekend there’s an op-ed in the Times called “Men, Who Needs Them?” by one Greg Hampikian, professor of biology and criminal justice at Boise State University and the director of the Idaho Innocence Project. I would suggest to Ms.… (more…)

Go cry, emo pony

For some reason, I felt compelled to explain My Little Dashie to a coworker today. (Having the poster for one of the film versions hanging in the office will lead to such things.) And I completely and utterly lost it. I mean, we’re talking a whole rack of bawls. So if you saw something here, or elsewhere, with my name… (more…)

Random musical observation

My usual procedure, once I’ve downloaded a new song from some source other than the iTunes Store or Amazon — I buy a lot of stuff from Bandcamp, for instance — is to direct it to a desktop folder for easy access, and then eventually move it to its permanent location once it gets to the point where I don’t… (more…)

We don’t even fade away

Um, no, it’s not. It skirts PG-13, maybe, but that’s… (more…)

Not your sister’s ponies

Just received at DSHQ: the anthology Bronies: For the Love of Ponies. It is not necessarily MLP-related, but I still expect it to be worth the read. I will report on it once it’s made it through my ridiculously large backlog of books to read.

Nomenclatural query

One phrase that occurs entirely too often in human writings — because there’s entirely too much of it in real life — is “man’s inhumanity to man.” It may be that the comparable concept does not exist in Equestria, though any number of stories tagged “grimdark” might suggest otherwise — but assuming that it does exist, how would you phrase… (more…)

Greetings to everypony

After hanging around the fandom for about a year < and apparently not having made a complete fool of myself, I have decided that I needed a place of my own that could be all pony, all the time, without getting in the way of my three other blogs (plus some scribblings I’ve left at FIMFiction.net, which will eventually be… (more…)
