Please note... the following scene may lose and/or simply drop a slight bit of logic in favor of "Rule of Cool", a la, Gurren Lagann.

The more I hear names like 'brainstorm' and 'buzzkill', the more I remember MLP is owned by the same company that makes Transformers.

I'm not impressed. But, then again I haven't taken an interest in watching the show.

My interest is your Skype planning. It's my understanding that public speaking is among the more terrifying fears.

Not that it matters, but what are you planning to share. I realize radio jockeys love to talk, and the show will in part no doubt be oriented towards instructional, philosophical, or political discussions.

Still, what other plans do you have for the discussion with your audience?

Will you be fielding questions from the audience?

What is your preferred interviewing style PEACE, motivational, Reid, or question duck?

How do you intend to maintain waining interest. Will it be like an audio blog?

Will you be creating news on the fly or let things happen naturally?

Are you planing on disguising your voice?

How do you plan on generating buzz?

@GabrielsThoughts: I've actually been in two videogame playthroughs with Ragnamune.

Expect some more stuff like that.

Hey, does anyone know anything about the flutterbat meme that cropped up recently on deviantart? Seriously, vampire ponies now? What's next, zombies?

@Lugbzurg: A "friend" of mine (as much as someone whom I've never met in person can be considering a "friend"), Ultimate Yoshi, is doing reviews of other webcomics from this site. I THINK his rules state that the author of the webcomic has to submit said comic, but if not, mind if I suggest it to him?

Bit of a warning, though: He's not too fond of Sonic OCs and self-inserts (as evidenced by some of his reviews), and he might take issue with some of the pacing problems this comic has. Given your admittedly undeserved reputation... please don't get mad at him if he brutally tears into it. He's already had a couple people freak out because he gave them a bad review.

EDIT: Here's the link, in case you actually do have to submit it yourself:

@Jarkes: I've long-since noticed several problems with this very webcomic and am very much looking forward to beginning something new. However, I am rather a completionist, and will not be satisfied until I have Serendipity finished first. then I can move onto Gaiden Chain. And after that...? Oh, boy, that one's gonna be strange...

@Jarkes:

well, since I'm old enough to know the difference between an attack of a comic and an attack of the comic's creator.

In addition to being aware that poor evaluation of what I've done or created has no bearing on whether or not I am a good person. And, since I grew up in a miserable household where the patriarch constantly complained to the point where one of his nicknames was MOAN, I hesitate to suggest you subject yourself to such treatment unless you have a thick skin, know how to conduct a proper review yourself, or have no expectations.

If you genuinely love yourself and what you've created you're inner child needs to be protected for several weeks if not years afterwards.

Reviews always cause a bit of cognitive restructuring, if not psychological damage for the unprepared, and if the reviewer is as sick as a rabbid dog, they're going to s4!7 all over you with violent, if not bloody, diarrhea.

"ULTi" seems like an intelligent reviewer, and based just looking over a handful of his reviews, it would appear he offers genuine suggestions for improvement. He doesn't appear to intentionally or violently attack the authors with encopratic psychological mesmerism and propaganda.

However, I've only read a handful of his later reviews and an earlier one he did for a friend. He seems very objective and patient. He doesn't appear to be critical because he believes he is correct.

He treats his readers and the comic authors with respect. He doesn't appear to needlessly insult others for the sadistic entertainment value or joy it might bring him.

@Lugbzurg: So, essentially, you won't submit the comic to him because whatever flaws he points out are ones you're already aware of.

For the new year, I just made a few changes to the comic.

First and foremost, THE NAME-CHANGE. It used to be called "The Tales of Serendipity". However, since there is only going to be one tale, instead of fifteen, as I want to move onto other more original projects, it has been changed to "Serendipity: An Equestrian Tale". (No "obvious pun route" taken... Deal with it.)

Second is that the old "Chapter 1" page has NOT been deleted, but has merely been moved to the "Stable of Extras" section for archival purposes, as the chapter system is no longer relevant.

Finally, The Sagas Yes, the sagas. If you use the navigator or view the Archives page, you'll see that "sagas" have been put into place, grouping each section of pages in a "Dragon Ball" type of fashion.

See? I still care more than enough to add some creative changes were they are needed! I'll just be eager to start Gaiden Chain as soon as I can.

@Lugbzurg:

I'm eager to start my own projects as soon as I can. Unfortunately, I have an excessive need to be prepared.

As such, I have priorities. And, while creating stuff provides much anxiety release, I follow through on projects based on level of difficulty and complexity first. My comic making ability may not be impress, and it may take me a week to make a page from start to finish. As opposed to writing, then pencils, then ink, then color,(( which are arranged in order of complexity in general although technically inking is less restrictive and time consuming than pencil work,)) I'm in the process of completing several personal research projects at once.

I think once I've covered a textbook on group dynamics, and finished my media research, I should have enough wherewithal to take my sweet ass time reviewing art textbooks while I continue to venture forth with my comics.

Sadly, I will have to switch over to a newspaper format after a few square pages because it makes it easier to be lazy about panel arrangement and embed secret messages. Other than that, the stories should take off without a hitch.

You can expect something like Dominic Deegan with less attention to detail and elitist intellectual pandering. There will be nerd humor, tragedy, and romance... probably not a lot of references to pop culture as I prefer a more dated and timeless approach to storytelling.

Pick one. They are opposites.

@Lugbzurg:

Don't make me explain the joke, it ultimately looses something fundamental to making it funny. I've read Steve Allen's how to be funny, and I've read Truth in Comedy. I've glanced over, or read the first chapters of Make 'em Laugh and Reader's Digest: Laughter Is The Best Medicine. I was being farcically ironic.

incidentally, I'm thinking of changing identities on smackjeeves, I've already changed my password twice since the incident occurred. But, I've never used imageshack.us in my life. Too unreliable. At the very least I can argue I haven't used imageshack for uploading photos.

So, when I look over past posts indicating I used it _somewhat_ recently I got concerned my avatar was hijacked.

Not that I mind, I could always use free advertising.
