Something neat I found at the antique mall, but didn't buy. She was $10 as is and there's actually a big spot of pony cancer on the leg I'm holding. Apparently pony cancer can spread, so I really didn't want her around, sadly. To be honest, I thought she was a fakie, but she's actually called Princess Royal Purple and from year 9. The eyebrows were badly mashed and fuzzed up, so much so that again I thought it was something someone had glued on for fun. Too bad! According to the MLP Collector group on FB, she may have been a little overpriced for the condition. Click for larger!
The latest My Little Pony FIM episode was accidentally released a few days early because the date in the iTunes store was marked 2011 instead of 2012. Naturally someone figured this out and the episode, "Hearts and Hooves" found its way to YouTube. A cute ep, but it contains one mind-boggling scene - Sweetie Belle gleefully puts the fun in funeral while singing a song! A funeral, and a Catholic one at that, in Ponyville? Weird!! It seems like a nod to something, but I can't quite figure it out...certainly not Father Ted anyway. I can't really think of any pipe smoking priests from popular media...GK Chesterton's Father Brown maybe?
