Helllooooooo everyone!

For some of you it may be late at night, for others early in the morning. You may be getting off work, or just about to start. Maybe you're just around because, well, why not?

No matter the reason, if you see this thread know that it is for you! You late night owls, you early morning risers. Come on in, pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee if you need it, and make yourself at home.

The topic for Tonight/This Morning is:

Hatsune Miku's 10th Birthday!

It has been 10 years since the electronic singing icon of J-pop was released! A lot has happened for Miku in those 10 years, and the future continues to look good for her and the Vocaloid system.

So don't forget to wish her a happy 10th birthday before you get on with your day or night! She'll appreciate it!

I think any official story-based media would ruin how the fans developed the Vocaloids' personality.


I thought most of the official music and games has developed the personalities of the Vocaloids.


I don't know how much Vocaloid music there is that you could really call "official". I'm pretty sure the most popular music is made by people outside of the Vocaloid company. And the video games don't have much in the way of story,  so there's not a lot of room for character development there is.

Everyday, Emperor Palpatine would sprinkle a little bit of sand into Darth Vader's suit, just to make sure he was constantly pissed off and irritated, so his connection to the dark side would stay strong.

I appreciate what you've done here.

Can you please delete that last post?  it's got some spoilers in it.

My friend was trying to convince me that I'm more intelligent than other people and I've adamantly refused to believe that.  However…there is a reading level problem here.

My writing is generally legal briefs intended for judges and long sentences with complex structure and such are what judges expect to read, and different ideas are expressed in clearly-defined places with clear labels.  The friends I have had read my story who liked its story content were scholarly people….those who like me push very slowly through a block of text and understand it meticulously.

It took me 3 hours yesterday to read through my 21K words, and I wrote them.  I have a slow, thorough reading style now because I can no longer scan text because of an eye injury, and I remember reading books as a little kid that were very hard to absorb and I had to go back and re-read a lot to get the concepts.  Textbooks can be like that for me too.

You took much less than three hours, and I think other readers of pony fiction will also take a lot less time.  So,this story is either a script that is only going to work when I read it aloud over illustrations, or if I break it down into smaller bits with more description that forces the reader to absorb it as a speed that can be digested.

Some of the key points you summarize are muddled, which is a clear symptom of this problem and I thank you for approaching it as any reader would.  I think, if you approached it the way I do and meticulously put in the time to see each word you will see the advanced concepts I'm trying to show you, but I don't expect you to do that and unless you do, the story comes out as something else.

>I appreciate what you've done here.
I was hoping it wouldn't be lost on you; it would have lost impact if I had to explain it.

>Can you please delete that last post?  it's got some spoilers in it.
I can do you one better. The important part of the post remains but the spoilers themselves are now gone.

Your analysis of why a disconnect occured between your writing and your audience—and why a smaller audience did like it—makes sense, and I am able to understand it. I'm not sure if it's because it's a pure thought recollection that flows similar to my own thought processes, or because you've broken it up into smaller, easier to read paragraphs rather than leaving it as a large block of text. However, the more important thing to me is that you understand it, because you can now tailor your work to your audience, and achieve a more desired result. This is what any author wishes, so I wish you luck as you pursue it. I'm glad I was able to help you see that, even if it wasn't how I intended to. Good luck and remember: Never Stop Writing.

I gave this some thought today on my high-speed bike ride home.  After a long day of work, buying stuff at Walmart and a burger, i was feeling spry so i pushed hard on the bike to get muscle-building in, and in keeping with the original thinking behind the story, my thoughts turned to this project.

It's disappointing that the remaining form of widely-read classical literature is children's books as we've become too lazy to focus on a "telly" input of information….we've been trained to watch people talking to each other before they start punching each other, blowing something up or just make fun of someone else.  I had a lot of time with books when I was a kid and I really still can't even quite fully understand how a narrative is different thatn watching a movie….my brain accepts each input so equivalently that i have to basically be corrected by someone who can't absorb narrative to even notice this distinction.

Why does no one love a narrative?  That's a rhetorical question, I doubt i will ever understand it.  That de-linking between the two concepts is simply a void in my brain and I'll never understand it.  I love dialog, don't get me wrong….and I love pictures, oh God how I love pictures!  Who doesn't, right?  but I'll never understand why someone talking to someone else is not the same as one person talking to me….maybe it's my ego and love of attention.  I've always preferred a mentor, J.R.R. Tolkein, Hal Clement or a Star Trek adaptation by James Blish to talk directly to me.  It makes me feel special.  I simply will never understand why everyone despises the author taking the time to personally address them.  I love blowing stuff up as much as the next guy, but evesdropping on the main characters instead of having a narrator contemplate the meaning of Spice being a preferred way to absorb a story I will simply never grasp.

Perhaps it's the exhaustive "reading comprehension" exercises on the school tests when I was growing up, where a formless block of consternating text covers one page and a half-dozen detail-oriented fact questions and a couple of conclusory meaning questions cover the next page and you better know the answers or you're going to end up in the dumb class again getting spit wads blown at your head. &Post too long.

I watched Moana today.

I'll say, I wasn't even a little dissappointed.

Best feature I've seen since probably Frozen.

I don't follow.


I thought it would be bad since I was sorta on some haterade about the disney bias in the animation oscars last year but I watched it recently and it was actually a pretty marvelous film.


were you just NOW figuring out the Academy Awards are biased? I found that out in 1994. Besides, the "best animated feature" award only exists so they never have to nominate another animated movie for Best.

You know I'm been happy lately because silly reasons.

Well I'm playing again after many many years Pokemon Trading Card Game is amazing to feel those good teenage days  playing pokémon tcg.

In my country the most popular trading card games are Magic the Gatheirng and Yugioh but sadly Pokemon tcg is not very popular everyone else prefer playing Magic or Yugioh.

Ah I'm playing yuigoh again  because my best friend needs someone to play with but he will play pokemon tcg with me too.  So is a win-win.

Cards Cards everywhere.

Other reason I'm happy is in Overwatch I'm doing a good job playing with Ana as a offensive support with Ana, I improve my accuracy in special with the sleeping dart is very rewarding cancel Soldier 76 and McCree ultimates with a sleeping dart.

So I forget my dissapointment on summer games in don't getting the skins I wanted thanks Ana.

Empty spaces- What are we living for.
Abandoned places- I guess we know the score.
On and on, does anybody knows what are we looking for..
Another hero-another mindless crime.
Behind the curtains- in the pantomime.
The show must go on.
The show must go on.
Inside my heart is breaking.
My make-up may be flaking.
But my smile still stays on.
Whatever happens, I'll leave it all to chance.
Another heartache, another failed romance.
On and on, does anybody knows what we are living for?
I guess I'm learning, I must be warmer now.
I'll be soon turning, around the corner now.

You have two marbles.


So 100?

So I'm really bored and looking for something to binge once my pizza arrives. But I have serious trust issues with lots of anime because people always tell me to watch things and I end up stopping after like 5 episodes. Is this any good?

It's kinda neat. Also based off of a French MMO.


I watched it in French if that makes a difference. I liked it. Its kinda changes tone after a few episodes. Eva was my favourite. The villain seems a bit flat a times, but he has a good origin story covered in a special episode.
