Somehow, you're just a little bit more embarrassing than me with your stridency. And to think this was the first Brony thing I actually thought was sort of cute. In any case, happy to know you've made strides. A happy Pony day to you sir!

I'm disgusted at some of the responses that I've read in this thread. Shocked actually.


Agreed. It's pathetic. This is no different than discussing Thundercats, Snow White or any other cartoon score. The title said it all. Not interested? Don't click on the link.

You create multiple threads on a subject most of us find creepy and annoying, and you keep doing it even though the responses it gets are overwhelmingly negative.

An all-ages, family show that promotes positivity and healthy, relevant morals... "creepy and annoying".

Any other kind of entertainment that depicts gruesome violence, vulgar language, sexual innuendos, et al... totally normal.

I think I know what's completely wrong with this picture, and my ideals aren't it.

Wouldn't this all be much easier and wouldn't blow out of proportion if the instigators would just... I don't know... let it go? This is 2013, liking MLP isn't news anymore. I thought the haters/trolls were done bickering at me a long time ago over this, but I guess not.


You're missing my point. In the past, you've started threads about MLP - a subject at odds with the age groups here, morals or no morals - in earnest. Most of the responses have ranged from disdainful to hostile. Now that you've started this one and received more or less the same reaction, I have to ask - what did you think was going to happen?

Look, go ahead and like the show. It's fine, really. But maybe... just maybe... this isn't the right place for a pleasant discussion about it? If I'm around my friend who can't stand Star Trek, I probably shouldn't keep bringing up Star Trek.

So that justifies the nasty comments?

This is a forum where people are free to discuss film, TV and video game music. Is Senn555's post off topic?

No, but it doesn't excuse Senn555 from not knowing better.

I have my own opinions about MLP, but I have nothing against Senn (Lucas, I think his name is?). From what little I've seen, he seems like a nice guy. I'm just baffled why he'd waste the energy on pissing matches.

Come to think of it, I'm not sure what I'm doing here either. Whatever.

Thank you for your comments, Erik W. They really do mean a lot to me and I sincerely appreciate it. I can't even remember what squabbles we've had in the past, but regardless, whatever I did, I'd like to apologize. I'm sorry man. Perhaps we can start over fresh one of these days?

I dunno, I thought that perhaps because having a genuine interest in My Little Pony was news back in 2010/2011, and that I feel it isn't news anymore, that people would have gotten over it by now after knowing about it for a couple of years. It speaks volumes the reactions people have to this day demanding that I drop my interest, rather than considering for themselves if they should let go of their own prejudice. Then again, in this day and age, America is still fighting for LGBT rights, so...

I don't particularly care for Star Trek myself, and I see threads about it weekly (it almost feels like daily to me). I'm not going into those threads telling people to stop being interested in it and to go do what *I* deem acceptable, though.

This is a discussion board for film music. I was posting about the documentary's music. At least, I was in the initial post, until the trolls decided to return.

I do know people who lurk this board who like MLP:FiM. But I know most others don't care either way. That's fine and dandy if you don't care about it or don't watch it, but I think I deserve the same respect everyone else gets when they post a film music topic and ask that comments not be hateful or disrespectful.

If a bully on the playground comes up to me when I'm playing in the sandbox and proceeds to kick sand in my face and/or throw punches at me, I think I deserve the right to defend myself for what I do, that isn't causing harm to anyone else.

Fair enough. I'm sorry if you thought I was kicking sand in your face too.

I don't know MLP. However, I admit to being kind of surprised by the "not here" comment and by the statement that older students and maybe even us can't learn anything from "children's programs." We are a music board. Right?

I don't want to give up discussions on Goldsmith's Mulan, J N Howard's Dinosaur, Powell's How To Train Your Dragon and all the marvelous FUTURE animated scores.
Also, I can't help but ponder all the important lessons I've learned from Pixar and Disney in movies like Toy Story, Monster's, Inc., Nemo, WALL-E and so many other wonderful movies made for kids that also impact, entertain, and teach adults.

I am so not giving up Pixar and Disney for Lent next year or ever.

No, you weren't. I'm mostly ticked at Daniel Schweiger.

The treatment I get from some people - and in the industry, no less - all for simply attempting to promote some film/TV music that they/no one else would have otherwise heard or been made aware of. Unbelievable.


Boy, that's a bit of a severe punishment Lucas. Bigotry. Like goofing on MLP is Selma! I goof on just about everything (including a bunch of stuff I like), so consider me an equal opportunity offender.

As I walk into the Nefud desert with my life destroyed for finding MLP fandom a bit absurd, might I say that if you weren't so stridently standing on your platform fighting for justice, you would've missed the fact that I actually found the short to be cute. I honestly enjoyed it.

I think we first got into it a while ago because of my belief that seemingly all-consuming fanatical fandom obsessiveness of any kind is not the key to a happy life, or a broader experience. I'm honestly glad that you've found someone nice through it, and wish you both happiness.

I meant to poke fun, not to bully you. Consider me properly chastised. I shall be staying out of your sand box.

Let's see, show with cult like fandom obsessively talking about things daily that are not real and perceived to be losers by all else who do not share their passion:



Check.

Okay, so I admit I got a chuckle out of Josh and Shaun's initial reply, but this got needlessly ugly. Clearly if Senn555/Basil/Apple Blossom (mlptrinity?) was out of line in posting about MLP music on this forum, then he'd have been banned a long time ago. But he's not, and he hasn't. He clearly marks his MLP topics for those who may or may not be interested and he also takes care to post topics solely about the show over in the non-film score discussion board, so I'm not sure what else one can ask of him in that regard.

And really, so what if it seems very few people on the forum seem to care about MLP presently? There is a search function. Maybe some people will come across it later on and appreciate it more. Or who knows? Maybe it'll attract some people from the MLP fanbase who wouldn't have come otherwise and spread further appreciation for film music in general. To my admittedly very superficial understanding, the underscore to the show does have its fair share of film music references, so it's not out of the realm of possibility that it could spark further interest. And besides, we already have a lot of weird people here, myself included, so that sure as hell's not an issue.

I know I've poked a little fun at Senn555 and MLP myself a time or two, and like Daniel and Erik, I certainly didn't mean harm by it, but there's a difference between a little teasing now and then and starting to gang up on someone and suggest that they ain't welcome 'round these here parts no more. I'm not sure where exactly that line is, but it's definitely been crossed in this case, and I think a tad more tolerance wouldn't hurt.

And I also, like Daniel, kinda liked the video. John de Lancie doing an homage to Modern Major General. Why not?

A couple of you really need to learn to read more carefully. Senn's posts are almost always about the music. It doesn't make one damn bit of difference what one thinks about the sort of show it is. The music is the topic.

The show itself is not exclusively aimed at children any more than The Simpsons or Spongebob is. It's full of sly, subversive humor clearly aimed at those older viewers with half a brain, and/or very smart young 'uns (LOL).

tarasis, solium and Erik Woods have the right idea. Like any thread here, if the subject doesn't appeal to you, don't click it. And certainly don't go in just to troll. That's beneath everyone who's actually done so in this thread thus far.

As someone else said, film score aficionados are a fringe group themselves, and looked down on by quite a few others, including a lot of classical music listeners (something I've experienced myself, even though I also listen to classical music). I find it shocking that, despite that, you think nothing of subjecting others to the same kind of bullshit a lot of us have put up with for owning tons of film scores. This kind of taunting of someone else is not only beneath you, but also laughable and pathetic in that you can't stop yourselves from behaving little better than playground bullies. I presume most of you, undoubtedly mostly dorks (I know I was), know how it feels to be bullied? I was bullied all throughout grade school, simply for watching Star Trek; and I'll never subject or tolerate anyone else being subjected to that kind of treatment ever again. How sad that some of you, rather than becoming better people, instead chose to exercise your frustration by finding someone "lower down the totem pole" to treat like crap. Absolutely shameful.

As "creepy" or "sad" as you think an adult watching a cartoon is, an adult bully is even creepier and deserving of scorn.

Kim Tong's now-deleted, inflammatory post to my direction has proved my hunch correct that he is Erik Donovan in disguise, and he is supposed to be banned. I've reported his account accordingly, so hopefully he'll be removed shortly.

TM2-Megatron gets it. Perhaps next time I advertise film/TV music that would otherwise go unnoticed people won't feel the need to get butthurt over a complete non-issue and shoot themselves in the foot out in public. I look forward to my next interaction with David O so I can tell him I tried to give him some promotion here and Film Score Monthly is not all sunshine and rainbows.

Valid as that statement might be, I'd put cash on the reply being in the ballpark of "barking up the wrong tree."

It was meant to be a FILM MUSIC thread on a FILM MUSIC DISCUSSION BOARD, until you and others knowingly and deliberately came in to piss on it. Just because you and your friends feign constant "annoyance" that I'm posting about scores wherein their subject matter pertains to horses, that doesn't make any and all discussion of it invalid because you don't want the topic of horse-related film music on this board. By your own logic, War Horse, the two Black Stallion scores, Silverado, Flicka, and any other score featuring horses should be barred from discussion here. I could "claim" that I don't want any Mark Hamill talk on FSM just to eliminate *any* mention of Star Wars and Slipstream on the basis that I "hate" it, but I know that won't fly - and neither will your suggestion - because it's stupid.

Film music threads. On a film music discussion board. That you can't even grasp so simple a concept... wow.

I was going to write a longer post, but since you're that guy who actively looks for all opportunities to foam at the mouth over Skyfall, Prometheus, anything to do with Christopher Nolan and J.J. Abrams... anything you don't like (which includes MLP:FiM, since you're obviously posting in EACH AND EVERY SINGLE THREAD about it), you're obviously not going to stop barking up the wrong tree toward me and an Emmy-nominated TV show you and your friends know absolutely nothing about either.

Two years and two months now these same, rehashed, tired, illogical "arguments" of yours and the rest of The Dark Side have been going on, and you still don't get it. I like the score and songs from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic and the Bronies Documentary. I'm not the only person here who does. And as far as LK and DS see it, I can discuss it just as all other soundtrack music can be, and I have the same rights as you. Deal with it.





Effective immediately, you and all of the other shitposters in this thread and all previous related threads are going on block. The harassment and libel against me ends here.


P.S. Your retweet of this disgusting post says everything about your kind and the people you hang around with. I'm the one who gets falsely accused of being a pedophile by your friend JJH and JSWalsh and yet YOU'RE DELIBERATELY SPREADING THIS SEXUAL SHIT AS IF *THIS* IS PERFECTLY ACCEPTABLE.
