Mistress Zecora d.notive 11/18/2011 4:47:46am No.19 - Score: 11
When you've got a disease, magic won't solve it
she's got the herbs that you need.
(She's got the herbs that you need)
Just call the girl with the Z, you know she'll halt it
for a nominal fee.
(For a nominal fee)

You think she'll do this for free?
Well just between you and me,
I've been behind the scenes
where seldom ponies have been.
Lonely traveler beware,
for what you will find in there:
a paradise for this mare,
in her chamber of terrors.

She's Mistress Zecora!
She's coming to claim us all!
Beware Mistress Zecora!
Just a lonely, saddened soul!

Now you're lost in her eyes.
Don't you deny it.
It's time that she claims her prize
(it's time that she claims her prize)
'Cant back out or escape, so don't you try it
There's a debt to be paid
(there's a debt to be paid)

So take a drink of her brew.
She'll put a spell over you.
Your freedom's nothing to you.
What's a pony to do?
So now you're spending the night,
and soon it's gonna feel right,
as she takes all your fight,
and turns off the lights!

She's Mistress Zecora!
She's coming to claim us all!
Beware Mistress Zecora!
Just a lonely, shattered soul!

She's Mistress Zecora!
She's coming to claim us all!
Beware Mistress Zecora!
'Just a lonely, scattered soul...

Incurable Dark Symphony 11/18/2011 6:33:34pm No.30 - Score: 8
My first toastbeard entry! Hopefully going to be making a regular thing of this.

Anyway, about the song:
It tells the tale of a pony from back in the Paleopony period, when the disease was still considered incurable, charting their initial elation at getting a cutie mark, followed by the subsequent fear as they keep getting more cutie marks. Eventually the plague has to be stopped...

Maakit Stop! General Mumble 11/18/2011 10:24:36pm No.40 - Score: 8

First entry to this whole toastbeard thing! I started making this about 2 days before the new episode. Guitars were recording on the air day. I heard one of CMC, Scoots I think, say something about "demolishing" so it made me think of the game Burnout for some reason. I tried to go with the Burnout2 The Point of Impact soundtrack style. If you've never heard any of the amazing Steve Emney & Stephen Root Burnout soundtrack you should:

What do you think of the...weird breakdown?

Oh merde, j'ai une marque mignon! Tout le monde est comme "oh non!"
Je m'en moque, je suis la refine du monde!

Broken Lessons Cutie Appleblues Circuitfry 11/18/2011 5:28:05pm No.29 - Score: 5
Currently, I'm on the world's worst laptop ever. The soundcard is so bad, I *must* redo this song later. I have to.

I have had a secret album idea in my head for months, now, and I'm going to unveil it: Broken Lessons. The concept behind it is to come up with maybe six songs and consult an influential musician in its development so that the song turns out as perfected as possible. I also want to work more closely with my music partner, BMDoubbleBass, because he has resources for mastering tracks very well, and I am utilizing his talents enough for our songs, hahaha. Finally, my third goal is to totally remove myself from my music and concentrate completely on ponies. A lot of music I've made, looking back, has been much more about me and what I can do rather than just making pretty sounds about the show and its community. With the release of We Broke It, I want Broken Lessons to break away from that habit and make the listening experience wholesome and valuable to a fan of the show.

Broken Lesson will have songs that turn an episode over and rethink it, looking for a special hidden lesson to expand upon. I hope that I'll be able to make pretty videos for it, too, because even though *this* version of the song is only kinda cute and wouldn't even win a toastbeard, my plans for the songs are to balloon their quality and beauty into an evolved state.

NotACleverPony was on the list of artists I deeply wished to consult for advice, and he very much wanted to be an encouraging helping hand to new musicians, as well. I'm very happy to have made his experience more interesting and fun while he was here, and I hope that he returns, healthy and happy, because I'd love more than anything to give him a loving hug and ask for his advice.

Cutie Appleblues :: F#, G, A, B, D, E
Everyday you
find a way to
try something new
while staying true

hearing Applebloom's
cutie appleblues
heavy tears and sighs
losing grip, she cries.

Hoping magic brews
could cure appleblues
she put aside friends
to make sadness end.

This ain't what she wanted
but the lesson must be learned
even when you're down and out
progress isn't quickly earned.
When you get back on the horse
you will have to reinspire
dig deep and remember to
reignite within your fire.

Dear Princess Celestia, my broken lesson of the week
is that you must learn to encourage yourself when you feel
helpless. Scootaloo and Sweetie Belle were good friends to
try cheering Applebloom up, but it's something she had to
learn to do on her own. Every fire can be reignited.

ps cat and I are pb and j ok

The episode said there was a Cutie Pox before, and everyone died.

That's pretty brutal. And I was pretty pissed off when I made this song.

So have some angry stuff.

Burn the witch!
Burn the witch!

An ancient plague
With no know cure
The cutie pox
You’ve caused our doom

Look what your greed has brought upon us
This price we’ll pay for avarice
The death of all you hold dear
This price we’ll pay for avarice

This is our curse
This is our hell
This is our final judgement

CUTIE MARK POX NOISECORE ROCK Circuitfry 11/18/2011 1:24:59pm No.26 - Score: 0
I tried to used the soundcard's tendency to ruin captured audio to my "advantage."

Instruments include toms (plastic bottles), crash (a pitch-shifted piece of paper being slapped), snare (sharpie markers on the laptop), and a ride (glass cup struck with a stylus).

RIP headphone users.

Ain't no colt is gonna take my marks
Gonna run me to the ground!
Ain't no filly gonna shake my core
I'm gonna rock this town abound!

A deal with the devil,
Applebloom has paid!
Buck off, world!
Demands are made!

Now believe me when I say
I'm gonna get my talents today!
Cutie Mark Pox!
Cutie Mark Pox!
Cutie Mark Pox!
