Tadpole Treble (game from Brawl in the Family artist)

How many of you out there are familiar with the webcomic "Brawl in the Family"?  It's a gaming webcomic that's based around pre-existing video game characters, mostly Nintendo characters (and even more specifically Kirby characters), as they have comedic set-ups to some of the more quirky nature of certain games and game characters.  Check it out here:

Anyway, he is making a musical game called "Tadpole Treble", which is about a little tadpole called "Baton" as she tries to get back to her pond, and she swims through sheets of music.  Here's a small teaser here:

He's holding a Kickstarter campaign to raise the money for it:

$30,000 and the game will be funded!  $50,000 and we'll get a Wii U version!  There are other stretch goals, too, but not many...  This guy's a really funny and awesome guy, and the game is cute and charming!  Help this guy out and pitch in!

Hurricane Fluttershy: Why it's My Personal Favorite Episode of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic

So, I don't know how many of you actually read this blog, but for those of you that do, you'll probably know that I'm a fan of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic (I GUESS I'm a Brony, though I seem to be steadily growing more uncomfortable with the word every day).  The premiere of season 4 of the show will be November 23 this year, and in honor of the event, Equestria Daily, one of the most well-know pony-related blogs/fansites on the web, has been counting down the days by going over every episode so far (plus the movie Equestria Girls).  Today, they recap the season 2 episode, Hurrican Fluttershy:

I made a long, multi-part comment on the site, as well as various sites, about how I feel about the episode and why it's so personal to me...  So I figured I might as well share it on my blog as well.  See my thoughts after the break, though be prepared for a big read (though by now, I think you'd be used to it).
