Week 287 Wrap Up

'Twas the night before Hearth's Warming and all through the town,
Not a creature was stirring 'cept a cat with some yarn.
The morrals were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that Father Nutmeg soon would be there.
The foals were all nestled all snug in their beds,
As dear Luna kept watch o'er the dreams in their heads.

Stories are a grand thing, are they not? They entertain and enlighten the populace, and can bring history to life in a manner that your typical school history book could never hope to match. And especially over the holidays, they bring peace and harmony to the ponies of Equestria. So perhaps tonight we'll all have the chance to curl up with a good book, or share a story with our families, and enjoy some classic holiday tales.

And I heard him exclaim as he rode out of sight,
Merry Hearth's Warming to you all, and to all a good night!

Week 286 Wrap Up

Ever have one of those days? Not one of those days where you can't seem to do anything right, but rather one where your coworkers can't? One involving numerous loud bangs, lots of cleaning supplies getting used, and repeated calls of, "No, your other left!", due to everypony being careless? Yeah, it's been one of those days.

Fortunately, the coworkers in question are the ones from my day job, and not the Gallery staff. The exhibit is fully set up and ready for our guests, with nothing damaged, discolored, or sitting off-balance, ready to fall over. So feel free to enter and take a look at tonight's offerings, which center around other ponies who are suffering a deficit of carefulness and/or balance. It's a lot less painful than the real thing, after all.

Week 285 Wrap Up

Joy to the world, the Moon has come! ...wait, is that right?

Well, music isn't the focus of this gallery anyways. This gallery is focused, as usual, on the visual arts. And we've got some very good pictures for you today. Because that is this week's theme: Ponies Doing Good! See what I did there? Now that's what I call a... well actually, calling that a 'good' pun is probably being overly charitable. But it was a pun, nonetheless.

But yes, ponies doing good and being charitable is the theme for this week. Which admittedly is rather normal behavior for many ponies. But good behavior should be celebrated regardless of how commonplace it may be, wouldn't you agree?

At any rate, it is time to open the gallery up. And I'll be charitable and spare the puns at this point, and simply step aside to let you all through. Have fun this evening!

Week 284 Wrap Up

Okay, time for this blog to take a level in... err, I probably shouldn't finish that statement. This is supposed to be a family-friendly place, after all.

*ahem* Well, it's time to power up! Indeed, it has been time to power up all week, as that is the theme for this week and all. Well, that and levelling up. But at least it's not a week of throwing up... err, sorry. *ahem*

Hmm... I think this blogger has taken a level in brain farting this week. At any rate, I think I'd better give up on this let you into the gallery before I say anything else that could make tempers flare up. So go on ahead and peruse all the art that's been put up this week!

Week 283 Wrap Up

@#*^$#^$@ &^*%$ #@#$*&^...

Why am I swearing so much, you ask? Oh that's not swearing. I'm just practicing my Q-Bertian. But enough of that, for we have a gallery to open! And I am quite happy to do so.

And yes, it may seem odd for me to be happy given the theme for tonight's gallery, but I can't help but be excited for each opening! Even when said opening is for an anger-themed exhibit. Besides, how would we attract a crowd in here with an angry frontman?

But enough of that. It's time to officially open for the night, so go ahead and peruse this week's pictures to your heart's content. I promise not to get peeved no matter how long you linger this evening.

Week 282 Wrap Up

Good evening, Ladies and Germs...uhh, okay. Who wrote this?

Err, nevermind! Tonight is a night for elegance, which that first line certainly is not. But do you know who is elegant? Princess Celestia! She's so noble and regal and pearlescent and nice and tall and shimmery and kind and... err, perhaps I should stop fawning over her before this gets any more embarrassing.

Besides, elegance is certainly not limited to her. Just look at her sister Princess Luna, or at Rarity. Fancy Pants and Fleur de Lis make quite the elegant pair as well, and then we've also got... wait, is that Prince Blueblood? Ugh... there's no elegance to be found there, just a whole lotta self-conceit.

At any rate, it's time for me to bring this little speech to a close. But if you've not yet gotten your fill of elegance, feel free to take a look at all the portraits of Lords and Ladies in the gallery tonight. It is truly the most elegant thing outside of Canterlot itself!

Week 281 Wrap Up

What is that? The Blogger still needs to be done? Well whatever, I'll do it tomorrow. Wait, what? You say it's due today? And that I should go with a different intro because you believe I've done this joke already? Meh, whatever. I'll check on it later...

Huh? Okay, okay! I'll get to it already! Sheesh.

This week has been a week for, well, being lazy. Sleeping in, avoiding work, following the old adage "Never do today what you can put off until tomorrow," that sort of thing. Like I wish I could do with this entry... But oh well, one can't put things off forever, after all. So come take a look at these pictures of ponies lazing about and/or sleeping in. Perhaps all of this will inspire you to stop putting off that thing you keep meaning to do! Or perhaps it will simply inspire you to sleep in tomorrow. Whatever works.

*looks through past entries* Hmm. I have done this schtick before. Oh well.

Oh-oh, you're here already! Well, come in, come in! Don't worry about my comments about still setting things up; that's for a different display. The art gallery for tonight is all ready for your viewing pleasure! But I must warn you, only those of a more adventurous spirit may want to pass through these doors. For this week's gallery is not about staying at home or going through the daily grind. Nope, this week is for those wanting a vacation from all that, especially if it's an exciting adventure of a vacation!

So throw caution to the wind, and enter this grand temple to adventure!

Week 279 Wrap Up

Quacky Quacka Quackquack. Quack quacky... err, quaquack? Umm...

Bah, this just isn't working. I have some important work to do this week, the kind that requires cooperating with a specialist. The problem is, that specialist... is a duck. And while that duck understands Equestrian, she can't actually speak it. It's not exactly easy to form Equestrian words when one does not have lips, after all. But it still makes conversation more than a bit difficult.

This task would be a lot easier with a translator available to aid us, but Fluttershy will be out of town next week. But at least she has been willing to aid me by trying to teach me how to understand the duck language. Which is not the slightest bit easy to pick up given that I don't have an animal-related talent like she does, but if I can understand even a little of what my partner is saying, it will make things a fair bit easier.

But enough about me. I'm certainly not the only one who has needed to handle an awkward team up, after all. Indeed, that has been the theme for this week's creations. So feel free to peruse the gallery, and take a gander at all the awkward artwork in there!

Hmm. That didn't come out quite right. Awkward...

Week 278 Wrap Up

Help! I need somepony!
Help! Not just anypony!
Help! You know I need... somepony! Anypony!

Things are such a mess here right now. The pegasi were bringing a big storm through this afternoon, and it got away from them! Thankfully the rain didn't get into the Gallery, but the wind certainly did. And it blew our pictures everywhere! I sent a messenger to get my friends in the hopes that they would arrive to help before visitors started arriving, but obviously that hasn't happened! I fear we may need to delay the exhibit's opening until tomorrow night.

Wait, what's that sound? Is that the sound of multiple galloping hooves headed in our direction? Yes, my friends have arrived to save the day! Or the night, as the case would be. With their support, I can have this gallery open right fast! So just give us all a few minutes, and you'll be able to peruse this week's exhibit to your heart's content.

So, how about a song to help things go faster? All together now:
I'm gonna try with a little help from my friends.
I'll get by with a little help from my friends...

Week 276 Wrap Up

Ah, hello there! Welcome, mares and stallions, to this evening's gallery exhibit! We've got a plethora of water-borne ponies for your viewing pleasure today.

Wait, what did you just ask? "Where is my captain's hat?" Were you expecting some sort of sailor-themed diatribe this evening, simply because this week's theme is sailing? Well, of course you won't find that here. Why, we'd never stoop to such obvious jokes in this place! So I'm afraid you won't find any "Yo ho ho"'s or tricorne hats or bottles of rum here, and you certainly won't...

Umm, why are you all holding up 'LiarJack' pictures?

Ahem. Well, it is time to officially open up the gallery, so feel free to wander in and take a gander at all of the aquatic-themed pictures from this week. Just mind the tri-horned bunyips.

Week 275 Wrap Up

"Getting to know you,
Getting to know all about you!"

And I don't mean by going through your old discarded mail to steal your identity...

Ahem. But at any rate, ponies have been getting to know each other a bit better this week as they all take a moment to relax with their friends and family. After all, we all need the occasional break from the pressures of life, whether those pressures involve work, big upcoming changes in life, nosy in-laws, planning the next big con... Err, did I say that out loud?

Well, I think I'd better stop talking now, for... reasons. Yes, reasons. So feel free to take a gander at this week's display in the Gallery, and see how others have been relaxing as of late.

Week 274 Wrap Up

Hello hello there, everypony! Step right up and prepare to be amazed! Amazed by what, you may ask? Why, my astounding sales pitch, of course! For I, my dear pony friends, have a bridge to sell you.

And not just any bridge, mind you, but the world famous Bronclyn Bridge! Built more than a century ago, it remains to this day one of the architectural wonders of Manehattan. One crossed by thousands of Manehattanites on a daily basis, mind you. Why, imagine the money that would come rolling in if one were to set up a toll booth on the bridge. Indeed, the bits would just come rolling in!

And speaking of bits, it is time to start the bidding! And we'll set the starting bid at... what was that? You say there's a police officer heading this way?

Err, for completely unrelated reasons, I suddenly find myself needing to be, uhh... elsewhere. Yes, elsewhere. Until such a time as I return, feel free to wander through this gallery of artwork I'm conveniently standing in front of. Within it's walls, you'll find plenty of examples of ponies engaging in completely honest and upstanding behavior. You have my word on it! But for now, gottagobye!

Week 272 Wrap Up

Ah, you're here. Forgive me for being brief, but I have a game to get back to. My friend challenged me to see who can score the most points by the end of the day, and the competition is fierce! And what makes it so challenging is that the rules are constantly changing! It's like having Discord as the ruleskeeper, but without the issues of actual chaos magic.

Nonetheless, competition is the name of the game this week! Unless you're not the competitive type, in which case having fun is the name of the game this week. Of course, whether or not someone is competitive typically depends on whether or not they have fun engaging in competitions. And admittedly, I typically don't find competition all that much fun. But even someone like me can find entertainment in a competitive event when you're competitors are good friends! And when they don't take things too seriously, of course.

Well, I'd better get going, as my friend is waiting for me after all. But don't let my absence stop you from perusing this week's gallery. As you can see, I'm not the only one who's been doing something competitive and/or fun this week. But now, I must get back to our friendly game!

The score is still Q to 12, right?

Bah, enough of that. Ye Olde Canterlot Speak is almost as hard as emulating Zecora, and I don't think any fantasy gamers actually speak that way anyways. Or at least, not any more. So yeah, enough of that.

Fantasy has been the name of the game this week, and the gaming ponies are out in force! So set aside your multi-sided dice and foam-covered swords, and take a gander at our fantasy-themed gallery! Perhaps you'll find some inspiration for your next game.
