The Legendary Strangething

I got opinions!

A couple of Pony-related links, a plug for a web game, and a question.

How Octavia got her name. Usually background pony fan-names emerge by consensus, but Octavia is the result of one fan's subtle lobbying.

Would MLP take off in Japan? Well, the fan-made subs have just been released over there. Here's a random chat room's response.

I've gone and gotten into another online game. Echo Bazaar is a huge step forward from the interchangeable Zinga-style hamster-wheels. It just oozes gothic Victorian style. I'd bet the creators know pen and paper RPG well. You can see the focus on story and uniqueness.

Anyone else still using LJ? I think I might pull up stakes and move to Blogger or Wordpress.

Big time spoilers incoming! Somebody who works at behind the scenes slipped some details about episodes 3 and 4. And some blurry cellphone pics to prove it. There's now an official plot synopsis out for episode three, and it matches the leaks.

Spoilers under the cut.

Two whole weeks without ponies! Why must you tease me, Hasbro! Equestria Daily has the confirmation.

Maybe this Pinkie Pie gif can keep me entertained until then.

So far, so good.

I get things done

On my way to school and back, I kept seeing a few warning lights on my dashboard. Oil and coolant. No problem, just pop the hood and top off the tanks.

While doing this, I noticed something odd. It looked a lot like a the fluid reservoirs I had just filled up, only with no cap on top. I got out my car's user manual, and found out that it was for power steering fluid, and yes, there should be a cap on it. Looking closely, I see that it's nearly empty.

How did this happen? I had a brief vision of hoodlums siphoning my precious steering fluid with a straw.

Hunting for a clue, I found the missing cap, resting lightly in a crevice of the engine. I guess I dodged a bullet there. Who knows how many weeks it was sitting there. It could have bounced into the street and I never would have noticed.

Time to get a lift to Autozone and get a bottle of power steering fluid. Also another pint of oil, and a funnel, since there wasn't one in the garage.

About then I start to wonder why the guys at Firestone didn't see this when I had to get my ignition replaced. They're supposed to do a courtesy check, to see if there's anything else you need done. (And need to pay for.) That cap being missing seems to qualify. On further reflection, the cap was probably only missing due to their goof. Some dimbulb mechanic checked the fluid level, and forgot to put the damn cap back.

Oh well. I solved all my car problems today, even the one I didn't know about this morning. Today counts as a win.

Ponies are back! The first episode of season two aired this morning.

Check out Derpy Hooves for places to download. They've got a link to a good quality version with the Hub's ads still intact, for the full kid's tv experience. I have it buffering as I type this.

It's been a long time since I posted here, about ponies or anything else. I haven't even bragged about my poster. You know, the Comic Con exclusive MLP poster? I gots me one! A pair of gaming friends of mine went to Comic Con this year, and they happened to see me post about the poster on Facebook. So they picked one up for me. Friendship really is magic.

There are a lot (seriously, a lot) of pony music videos on YouTube. The best ones either use a very silly song and run with it, or a very serious one and take the piss.

The above is one of the former, Spike Jones's "Hawaiian War Chant".

If you just can't get enough, I've got a list going.
