Two bits of site business: First of all, if you left a comment on a post in the last few days and I haven’t responded, please don’t think I’m ignoring you. Google/Blogger has been behaving very strangely for me lately–the Reply button frequently doesn’t do anything, and when it does, there’s about a fifty-fifty chance that it just eats my comment instead of posting it. I really need to get off my butt and finish the transition to the new site, so we can get on a non-crappy commenting platform.
Second, the liveblog of the new episode tomorrow is GO! I will post some time in the late night/early morning with details of where to go to participate via IRC (pretty much as soon as I know what those details are…) We’ll watch the East Coast broadcast (10:30 A.M. EST)–if you don’t have Hub on TV, Equestria Daily should have links to livestreams you can use. If you don’t have IRC, you can use the comments on that post to record your thoughts, and after the chat, I’ll update the post with a log of the IRC conversation.
Am I the only one who was just plain unimpressed by the second arc of the Friendship Is Magic comic? I don’t mean that I hate it or anything, it just… left me flat. Part of it may be expectations–I was told going in that the first arc was only so-so, and I was utterly blown away. The second arc, on the other hand, had significantly more hype, and I don’t feel like it really lived up to it–or, for that matter, to the standards established by the first arc. I’m looking forward to eventually reading the third arc, though, since that was apparently made by more or less the same team as the first one?
