WORD OF THE DAY! 1/21/14!





anthology [an-thol-uh-jee]
noun
1. A book or other collection of selected writings by various authors, usually in the same literary form, of the same period, or on the same subject.

EX. So, I think it's been about a hot minute since we had any ponies on my blog, but the third installment of the Ponies Anthology is a perfect excuse. In the same vein of AMV Hell, the Ponies Antholgies are a collected montage of scenes taken from dozens of independently created works, collaborations, and other fan videos related to Hasbro's My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. They are edited together into something both easily digestible and attention holding, adding in special projects created especially for the anthology, to celebrate another year of the fandom's work.

Even if you're not a fan of MLP, you can probably appreciate a lot or at least some of the humor and definitely appreciate the effort. Similar fan efforts have produced other projects like MLPFiM: Double Rainboom and Rainbow Dash Presents.

Enjoy or not. Shrug. I indulged in one of my interests for an article and will now return to my usual programming.

If you want to learn more about this recently emerged, slightly marginalized, and ever-growing fandom, check out the recent Bronies documentary narrated by John De Lancie.
