Well, it only took them almost two years, but it's finally out.
I'm amazed that I ever found this shit funny, holy shit.
And not TWO DAYS after they were featured on EqD's "Pony History" thing. Coincidence?
MAS is still being made. Greg is just doing his own animation now because Petirep is too busy with other stuff and he can't use the show's animation due to copyright shit.
That was YEARS ago family. I used to find this funny until the wedding episode and then Jenny and Sherclop became huge fucking egotistical pricks that love the smell of their own farts and now try to say that they're trying to be not funny on purpose.
I just realized, from 2010 to now, I've never gotten into anything abridged related about ponies.
Personally, nothing beats none piece and hellsing abridged for me so that might be why.
Nah, next one will take 4 years, be three minutes and have shittier audio quality. Then part after that will take 8 years, be a minute long, consist entirely of screen shots and no sound, but just subtitles. Then 20 years later, we'll get the final part, a three second long video of a shitty drawing made in MSPaint..
Ok just watched it. Their old stuff was a lot better. They should just ditch EqG like catfood did after attempting to make his parody, and get back to making fun of the show. They've got, what, 2 seasons worth of new material?
Wow, it's fucking terrible. Literally nothing happened, a couple backhanded memes, and just generally nothing. Then, to be continued. Jesus, can they not commit to anything? UFP does a better job than these people.
I just think they don't give much of a shit anymore. as far as i know Jenny is working full time. Griffin is like a full time youtuber now, who uploads songs to kickstart his lets player career.
Actually, if you go onto DesuStorage and see the first thread about FiW most people are just quoting lines from it and are like "omgerd its so gud", and theres also some discussion saying that MAS is way shitter

She had one line and that's only because sweetie belle has something to say in that scene. It's necessary to have her there because if she wasn't, it would feel missing. Get that stick removed up your ass and just enjoy things without getting assblasted because they get more hype than your beloved Mas.
Episode 8 was ok
I only watched FiW like over a year after its last episode (ep. 9) and without even looking at discussion or reaction to FiW or anything I thought episode 9 was really shit.
It was only afterwards I heard all the FiW hate and people saying that they were egotistical and thought they were comedic geniuses for that Snowblind parody, etc.
So literally the only reason to like sweetie bot is that she said literally anything. They couldn't use her in a joke, they couldn't do anything except have Cheerilee talk about how their antics will release discord, something that isn't even a joke because it's what we knew would happen. No twist at all to make it funny.
>They've done it before
On 4chan? Surely they didn't admit to that.
>that edgelord OC
>still using love and tolerate unironically
EqD never ceases to amaze me.
If she played no part why is it so exciting to see her return ala the advertising on Equestria Daily? The episode was pretty much just "Twilight exchanges names with people" the parody. Absolutely amazing. The best part was her reacting to Celestia's face, the rest was just bland.
>that faggot going "It's shit. Don't watch it. I'm trying to save you from turning into degenerates."
Something interesting from the comments
>Hasbro now allows their copyrighted material to be uploaded to youtube (and monetized on their behalf, of course) If only they would have figured out how to do that first instead of flagging a bunch of our videos
Buddy, when I was 13 kids were just like they were depicted on South Park, there's no excuse for them to be such pussies over shit like profanity or "meanness".
Also most of the adults are the same.
Jesus, I thought FiW was alright back in the day. What the fuck was suppose to be funny about that?
I assume they're just getting their groove back after all this time. Probably got a few new players on their team too. I mean, it's not like they've been working on those 6 minutes of nothing for 2 years straight. R-right?
Holy shit, that faggot must own an entire collection of fedoras.
except that it's actually decently funny. It's dry humor, but it's actual writing and a real attempt at making a parody of mlp. This stuff was just "haha their name is different now" "haha sweetie bot said something plain" "haha they said something that's happening on-screen" "haha they referenced a previous FiW"
>everyone hates Foaly Matripony and FiW
>mfw it's unironically my favorite episode and I legitimately enjoy the series
It's great to have them back. Hope they continue.
>if the demand is strong enough
how autistic are they. They're considered the most well-known parody series of mlp, even featured in the documentaries. Of fucking course there'll be demand. People would eat their shit if they put it in front of them.
Seems more like attention-seeking to me. They want to see hundreds of grown men saying "please oh please make the song for us, we love you so so much". If they had any respect they'd just say they had more plans and leave it at that. Wanting to gauge the demand is them dangling the fruit and saying "love us or we won't make anything else"
>hover cursor over [Embed]
>get this reaction pic
but demand is a given for them. They know they have tens of thousands who will gladly enjoy anything they put out. Asking for more demand is just ridiculous. If they were relatively unknown it would make sense, but people have been actively following and praising them for years.
His best series is now Gym of the Romantic Journey
It's comfy as fuck, and he doesn't ruin it with his weird "I stay up til 3 am playing an RTS from the 90's" humor
Still, got to like watching his slow decent into poverty and his seemingly intelligent opinions get fucked after he's done too many personal times
I actually really liked Foaly Matripony and I thought the Babs Seed one was pretty brilliant. Honestly I think the only episodes I don't like is the first one.
I still will never forgive /mlp/ for FUCKING NOT REALIZING THAT KIMI SPARKLE WAS A WORK OF PARODY
I get where you're coming from, but who really knows what yourel fans want and not want.? As they have implied in their description, they are willing to make a whole new episode for it, the question is, would the fans like that?
Cmon guys, the part where she was choking on the apple didn't make you giggle? Not even a little bit?
But really, this is something they need to make sure of because its something that would take them a long time, as they have mentioned. Personally, I don't give two shits about a song and I'd rather just have an episode, and a song would literally take forever.
Okay. Quickly Looking through the first 50 comments on youtube and I see no demand for the song. I might have missed one or two, but I don't think they'll be making a song for the next episode.
They are not referring to uploading entire, actual episodes. In the case of FiW (among others), Hasbro claims Copyright "it's our property we own" and gobbles up any ad revenue obtained for themselves instead of the ones who produces the parody (Sherclop).
It was certainly better than the first ep of Horse Women, I think the only thing I really liked about that was the song. Even the trailer for Horse Women was better than the first episode.
Cute from the Hip and Neigh Soul Sister were god tier. Foaly matripony had god tier song. Rest were pretty awful except for the Gypsy Bard song.
Rest wasn't great. Horse women certainly isn't...
FIW's time has passed.
Oh wow it's fucking nothing. Maybe the Discord crossover that they are foreshadowing will turn out into something interesting, can't wait to see another 6 minute snippet next year.
I enjoyed the first couple FiW's, but the later ones and basically anything Horse Women related is not clicking with me. I dunno if it's that my sense of humor changed or if it's on their side. I got a nice chuckle out of the "if there's enough demand" bit, that was a good one.
don't want to add up to the mas/rdp circlejerk but I'm sad that the equestria primates thing didn't work out
Let me break the circlejerk. The thing I don't like about MAS is the leddit tier scientism that gets put into Twilight's mouth because it sounds suspiciously like what the author actually believes instead of a joke.
I pretty much just watch Lunar Slander and Cute From The Hip every once in a while and I'm good.
>there are people who think this tripe is on par with RDP and MAS
I don't see it as a competition desu senpai.
Basically why I hate MAS
It's even in the fucking title
>THIS IS A SMART SERIES FOR INTELLIGENT PEOPLE
To be fair, their early episodes were decently entertaining, with a couple of nice songs once in a while, but this was just not good.
The writing was so "lol randumb" and lacked any sort of wit.
I don't think the title is meant to be read literally, family. Also, while I vastly prefer MAS over FIW, I've never really noticed any correlation between intelligence and preference towards any one of the two shows.
Me thinks you're projecting a bit.
Well it is the same group of people who fawn over an over-glorified YTP and PMV collaboration, but they totally aren't bronies they only like it ironically.
And then there are faggots who screencap themselves arguing on other forums and post them here begging for attention and goodboy points.
>Since when did knowing the english language make you pretentious?
Well, a sense of superiority for knowing a certain word that someone else doesn't is kinda pretentious though, isn't it?
>a sense of superiority for knowing a certain word that someone else doesn't is kinda pretentious though
What sense of superiority? He literally called the other anon pretentious for using a word, a common one at that. He's either an idiot for not googling or an idiot for jumping to conclusions without knowing the actual definition.
I really don't give a shit about pedantry, let's just drop it.
IIRC, the final title card always says something about "we hope this episode has satisfied all your special needs required from your cartoon horse viewing experience", or somesuch.
He's definitely 'avin' a giggle, m8.
HORSES ARE MORE IMPORTANT THAN REAL LIFE
Greg is a cool guy. People who say he's condescending are talking out of their asses.
>Greg is a cool guy
Eh plays fallout and doesn't afraid of anything
Yeaaa I don't want to be THAT GUY but I just have to ask...
Is anyone else surprised at them making this much on Patreon for a video of this quality? No really, some parts were funny but not as good as past episodes by a margin. And who can really say how much their content is valued at. Do they still even do this Patreon? Or is it just there? You'd think they would get C&Ded or something but hell if I know.
Again I don't really care but I am genuinely curious as to what their Patrons thought of this. After all they are the ones probably motivating Sherclop to do anything at all.
It was OK, I liked it, it's not as good as the previous ones but whatever, I still enjoing this shit. Yeah it's not the best thing in the world but my taste isn't as exigent as some people here so I guess I'm the minority.
>people don't like content for the creator's opinion rather than the content itself
EqD and Youtube is over there guys.
>people don't like it because it's shit
I like you guys, you are cool.
I like MAS and FiW as well, and MAS is better.
Unfortunately, it would seem simply redubbing the dialogue is not "transformative" enough. I saw others noticed the small scene with original animation. Also, this FiW had sliced clips of EqG1 with a clip from "Return of Harmony."
I'm amazed that I still do.
And yet, I still do.
Rewatched the series again, holy shit I still love this stuff.
The issue has never been brought to court. And it never will, because average Jenny's don't have the money to challenge a DMCA takedown notice. So in practice, Fair Use literally doesn't exist. A corporation could file a copyright complaint against something completely unrelated and get away with it because there's no recourse, no defense against false or invalid reports.
I'm all for creators being able to get paid, be they Hasbro or fan artists. IANAL (phrasing!) but if it came down to it, I'd think FiW, MAS, RDP, etc, are all sufficiently transformative that they'd stand up in court. Hasbro doesn't want to risk the money they'd lose if they took it all the way and actually lost on the merits. No fan artist can afford to take it all the way if push comes to shove. So here we sit at a stalemate.
The real question is whether fan art like FiW is made for money or for the lulz. I'm all whynotboth.jpg here except that this lawyerpone was cuter.
But when it comes to deciding how to categorize one's transformative content, the decision to try and monetize versus "fuck it, let the record company and Hasbro fight over the scraps" is always a tough one. Whether you're recruiting your own VAs and doing your own animation where needed, or whether you're just a lowly PMV creator splicing clips together against your favorite song.
Yes, they've made enough money to buy 4 cheeseburgers once a month for a couple years.
First, it's much better than the rest of FiW content. But it's still filled with bad and overused stuff, MAS and RDP are always better
6/10 chuckled in silence at some parts, cringed on rage at others
Well I don't even know if they use it. They probably do but isn't this considered copyright infringement? You'd think Hasbro would have issued a C&D by now. Then again I bet lots of people get away with it on Patreon.
Very unfortunately true; I cannot tell you how many times in the past I have read people explain Fair Use is ultimately a matter decided by a Judge.
However, whilst going to court is quite a hefty sum; consulting a lawyer is not totally out of the question. I wonder if that is one reason this took so long to come out? Perhaps Sherclop consulted a lawyer a time or two and maybe got guidance that really made them chew over things. I know that's what Greg did and way MAS is now his own artwork and not clips or stills from the show.
When nobody (Vimeo, etc) would take their content in, they got their own website to host videos on, so they tried lots of ways of getting around their US ban, consulting a lawyer doesn't seem too farfetched. But I'm pretty sure Hasbro have just changed their policy regarding taking videos that use their footage down, as evidenced by the fact that full episodes of MLP with millions of views can stay up on Youtube for months.
>yfw someone saw that video, decided to give them $11
well there's six minutes I'm not getting back
most importantly he's still around, even posts here and isn't one of those people who suddenly think they're hot shit, announce they're quitting pony, distance themselves from the fandom and try to breakthrough/make a deal with a label, only to crawl back to get the attention they got used to, like Alex S. for example.
Question about Patreon for anyone who can answer.
If you give money per video, what's to stop a channel from spamming like 6 shitty videos in a couple of days and raking in money? Is that how it works? Are there safety mechanisms in place for the donor?
Whenever the content creator makes a post, there's an option to charge the backers or not. I guess they could just spam it, but I'm pretty sure that's sure fire way to get your patreon reported and lose patrons.
So there is safety mechanism then, bc if you're willing to fuck over your patrons I don't think you care about good faith.
Sherclop is a good example of a channel that could do this because the potential they could make from Patreon is huge, but they don't depend on it as a source of income.
In the case of "Per Video," Pateron allows patrons to setup a limit to the number of videos they are willing to support in a month. So, some patrons may only support one vid, two vids, three, etc per month.
He just really can't shut the fuck up about Griffin and Jenny, can't he?
I wonder if was referring to "they" on purpose, considering that he's in the fandom, and I without any research at all, know that its Griffin who makes the meme-music these days and Jenny doesn't do anything anymore.
You got them mixed up. Petirep is the guy who does the art behind RDP, Greg is the writer, artist behind MAS and most of the voices you can hear on both shows. Greg runs the tumblr, Petirep has its own (iirc literally petirep.tumblr.com)
>Cromartie reaction pic
It's a meme, you dip
>Often times the characters are only saying things to be saying things, or they’re only saying things that people normally wouldn’t say.
Oh for fuck sake. He say that as if he doesn't do it himself.
>You know what we gotta do?
>We gotta tour with the weather factory.
>The weather is an important part of our world and we should take a moement to appreciate it.
I don't wanna...
>Yeah? Me neither I guess.
And lots lots more.
>inb4 Jenny or Griffin
Some people just sees it when someone is getting butthurt, but tries way too hard to hide that fact.
>announce they're quitting pony, distance themselves from the fandom
Well that part you quoted actually makes sense to me. Dash and Fluttershy just arrived to Cloudsdale to sign up for the competition, they landed right next to the weather factory. Fluttershy reminds Dash why they are there, but Dash doesn't really want to sign up, so she needs to kill time to "accidentally" miss the deadline.
The first hint you can see is when Fluttershy mentions the competition, Dash's ears... what's the word, flop? Fold? And she frowns a little as well. Then she looks around, and because she needs to distract Fluttershy asap the first thing she sees is the factory, so she proposes the tour (btw. she says oughta, not gotta), trying to bullshit her with some phrase about it that sounds like from a tourism guide or maybe even school.
But Dash probably doesn't care about the factory that much and because Fluttershy didn't take the bait, Dash tries to come up with another idea, something that caters more to Fluttershy. That's why they end up going to the zoo after all. The yellow one likes animals.
You kinda put BG in a position where he can't argue with anything because if he says that horsefame matters, many people disagree. If horsefame doesn't matter, many people disagree as well.
The right thing to do is
1) acknowledge that the reason he has any semblance of famousness is horses instead of spitting on the fandom and
2) not act like a fucking rockstar primadona charging a hundred bucks for the privilege of hearing his previous advice.
>implying anyone outside the fandom gives a fuck about horsefamous people
>implying his portfolio isn't already permanently ruined by associating with bronies
- So, sir, it says here that you're talented in music and even make your own songs. May I ask you to show some of them to us?
- Yeah, sure, here's this, umm... My Little Pony song I did a while ago. It got really popular on Youtube!
>acknowledge that the reason he has any semblance of famousness is horses
Are you sure about that? Because he said many times, they have been involved with alot of music gigs that doesn't involve ponies. Even won an American Idol in Disneyland. Also, if he does say "My fame is never without the help of bronies!" Wouldn't you expect people to be all like, "Horsefame doesn't matter. Don't mention horsefame because it's just a meme."?
>spitting on the fandom
Did he really spit on the fandom? He said it himself that he makes stuff for the fandom because it's fun.
>not act like a fucking rockstar primadona charging a hundred bucks for the privilege of hearing his previous advice.
Honestly, he can charge however much he wants. Some people charges higher for that one person. BG and Creber are like $50 bucks each. He's not wrong for charging so high. I'm not saying he's right either. It's just business.
>Yeah, sure, here's this, umm... My Little Pony song I did a while ago.
Dude. He got hired in DHX. Not to mention collaborated with Daniel Ingram. I'm sure he's more than proud to say that.
>Are you sure about that? Because he said many times, they have been involved with alot of music gigs that doesn't involve ponies. Even won an American Idol in Disneyland.
Didn't see any of that, fair enough I suppose.
>Also, if he does say "My fame is never without the help of bronies!" Wouldn't you expect people to be all like, "Horsefame doesn't matter. Don't mention horsefame because it's just a meme."?
I doubt that. There'll always be people bitching just at the mention of his name, but I think people would at least prefer that to his current stance, which suddendly seems to be "I don't know these people".
>Did he really spit on the fandom? He said it himself that he makes stuff for the fandom because it's fun.
That's all he's been doing, at least that's how I think most people see it.
>Honestly, he can charge however much he wants. Some people charges higher for that one person. BG and Creber are like $50 bucks each. He's not wrong for charging so high. I'm not saying he's right either. It's just business.
He's free to charge whatever he wants, and I'm free to call him a deluded prick with an ego the size of a planet in response.
>implying his portfolio isn't already permanently ruined by associating with bronies
His portfolio IS association with bronies
My original point was that him claiming his career has nothing to do with his horse fame is plainly ridiculous
Yeah, so it seems
I think with the discord statue plot, the guy crossing into the portal and the main Twilight vs Shimmer plot they tried to make something big and interesting, but in the end just weren't bothered developing it any further and said fuck it.
FiW is excusable b/c they unashamedly admit that any semblance of story arc is accidental or an afterthought. But when your parodying a movie and its clear they intended to introduce all these story branches (although most definitely had no idea where they were going) and then just went "soz we're not finishing it" is kinda stupid
looks like they're going for the lowest common denominator of entertainment
Everything in my portfolio is ponies, and I managed to use it to get a paying writing job.
See... in the professional world, particularly the world of art, your grown-up employers don't care that you drew art of Pokemon or the Lion King or My Little Pony, or whatever. They don't give a shit. They're not as hostile as your peers are. All they care about is if it's good, and you are talented and experienced and work well with others and do what you're told. 99% of them don't even know what a "furry" is, let alone a "brony". They're too "normal".
In my time in the IGDA, (International Game Developers' Association, a cancerous feminist leftist hugbox), I looked at other professional writers' portfolios, and they were putting shit like "High School Drama" and "Barbie and the Emptiness She Feels Inside" in their portfolios, so who gives a fuck?
was that not always the intention
I followed him on Twitch when I used to use it, he's been very active since then
thats nice and all
on the other hand, we can watch the new episode of the better seires
the episode kinda depressed me in a good way
Why everyone take this as some kind of competition?
It' because greg talks about FiW?
It's just how people work. Give them two of something (in this case MLP parodies) and rather sooner than later people will start arguing which one is better and separate into groups by preference. The incident with that one inappropriate joke (I totally forgot what it was about) helped to fan the flames as well.
I made it about 4 minutes in, and I just couldn't stand the art anymore. Although, I was never into MAS series in the first place, I was an autistically huge superfan of RDP.
It seems that Greg and Petirep simply need each other. Without Greg, all Petirep can do is draw cool looking pictures. Without Petirep, all of Greg's good humor and good writing can't make me sit through a video because the art is so bad.
Hell, I enjoy both parodies, I think MAS or RDP is better than FiW, but I like FiW anyway.
FiW has better songs tho
That's a bad one, the one with Zecora it's ma favrt
The Starlight Glimmer one made me kek https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6iVy5s2DB4o
Even as someone who liked the series this was shit.
I mean I know a lot of people already thought it was shit, but good lord it got even shittier after that 2 year hiatus.
Doesn't cost me anything to enjoy it if it actually comes out.
Are you literally retarded? I was asking why the fuck they decided to put the "To be continued" at the end of the video when they knew they weren't going to make a Part 3! You even quoted the same fucking post as I did.
It would taken them all but two seconds to remove the "To be continued" part from the video before uploading it, but they were apparently too lazy to do even that.
I'll give them the benefit of the doubt and assume they really hadn't made up their mind about whether or not to do a part 3 until after they released part 2 (even though the decision not to was made like less than a day after release)
It is surprising that they make that much off it, but they never upload so it's not like people are losing a constant stream of money.
I've seen channels that have way more patrons but make less per video than sherclop bc they upload all the time
