My Little Pony, My Little Pony…. who knows the song? No, not the current version, friendship is freaking magical or what have you. Yes, it’s the hour of crotchety “PONIES WERE BETTER IN MY DAY” grumbling. Hey, I’m 32 now, I’m entitled. And get off my lawn while you’re at it.
No, no, I don’t mean to hate. I’m glad ponies have been revived (because PONIES!) but I don’t like the new look. It’s this current trend of bigger eyes=moar cuter… where does it end, people? Let’s look at the evolution of the pony, shall we?
Generation 1! This is Applejack, circa 1982 (the year of my birth. Coincidence? I think not.)
Generation 2; Late 90’s. Nobody remembers these, according to the internet. They didn’t do well. Sad pony.
Generation 3! This is Applejack with a makeover, circa 2003ish. I like this generation, I have to say.
Egads! Applejack, what did they DO to you?! Generation 4, 2011 ish
The next generation can be called My Little Eyeballs.
Anyway, ranting aside, I loves me some My Little Pony. There was a terrible MLP movie that came out in the 80’s sometime featuring some nasty-pasty witch ladies who wanted to take over Ponyland so they created this horrible living purple slime monster called the Smooze. There’s a catchy little musical interlude in which they sail on waves of Smooze in their cauldron singing “Nothing can stop the Smooze” (spoiler alert: flutter ponies can stop the Smooze. Darn.)
SO. I was thinking ponies and smooze and here’s some makeup about that.
