Description
Everypony has someone they look up to. (Even other musicians.) (I'm subtly implying that you can interpret this theme as "style emulation.")

What do you see? what do you strive for?

Is it just outside of your grasp?

This week's theme is: idols.

ALTERNATE THEME: make a song in response to any element from season 2 episode 15 (in the place of ERS15)

-----

You have ONE WEEK to create UP TO 2 songs (original, remix, or whatever) in response to the theme.

My Arms Around Her UnderpΩny 2/3/2012 8:02:42pm No.29 - Score: 3
Placeholder vocals for now. I only had time to do one take and it wasn't a good one. Applejack is my idol because out of the mane pony she's the one I most want to be like. She has integrity and honesty blah blah blah




Glazebot Icky 2/4/2012 8:23:08pm No.56 - Score: 3
Glaze is one of the best musicians in our community if you ask me. Not only do I really dig his music, his work also motivated me to become better and to try new things.
But I did notice something.. peculiar about Glaze, I mean we've all heard his voice and it did sound a little bit odd. After doing some research on the subject I discovered that Glaze is actually a vampire

hahaha, no that'd be ridiculous.
Glaze is actually a robot, don't tell him though, or he might go on a rampage through ponyville!

Planning on finishing this, but only started on it this morning. Feedback would be much appreciated!

Oh and I-Pie I put your song on hold, I wanted it to be perfect so Im probably going to remake a pretty large part of the song. Im still totally your biggest fan though!

is anyone else a fan of this blog? 'Cause I am. And It just happens to inspire me and my strange, creepy music skills. Inspiration is kinda funny that way. But don't worry. Mommy'll make it all better...

Dj Pon-3 - Equestria Girls (Music Sounds Better With Ponies) Dj Pon-3 2/3/2012 12:54:27pm No.23 - Score: 2
I liked the short and cute Hasbro original that's everywhere but wanted a real club version. This mashes up that with KP's California Girls (already was in there but more so) and Stardust's Music Sounds Better With You (a busier double chorus). Thought it worked decently and made from parts of all 3 tracks in hopefully a way that doubles the fun from the original. Could be a little cleaner (something funky going on in a bassline that i couldnt clean up) but hey its a mashup and hopefully overall it works for a day's work..

How is this on-topic....um.. well my inspiration is that the Brony fanbase gets more active women members in the fanbase. Know a girl, who's a friend, get her into the show. Please! Let's get more REAL Equestria Girls as part of the fanbase. :P

Flim and Flam are best pony. Deal with it.




Dj Pon-3 Misses PinkiePieSwear - Flutterwonder (Natural Ambience Mix) Dj Pon-3 2/4/2012 9:33:48am No.40 - Score: 2
One of the artists I immediately was impressed with and admired from early on in the brony community was PinkiePieSwear. Sadly they've moved on from the scene and not wanting to be defined by it which i can understand (but I still miss them). Their prescence is sorely missed and so I did Flutterwonder as an ambient track from collaged bits of the original, some show dialogue, and a slowed microsound of the original track (ie paulstretch). Hopefully this sounds epic and not boring. :)

N Algorithm N723 2/4/2012 11:07:04pm No.69 - Score: 2
You guessed it. A mix of me from June, with the knowledge of January, with my basis being from May. Plus it took me 45 minutes to render this fucking thing.

Also, LAST ONE FTW.

Broken Heart ScootaVortex 2/3/2012 7:18:51am No.18 - Score: 1
Hey, Scootabag here.

Missed me?

It's been almost a month since I disappeared of the face of the internet.

Truth be told, I had really lost motivation for writing.

I'm not really as big of a brony as I was, I guess.

So that's why this weeks song is written on my new account. I want to separate my brony music and my non brony music. I just feel like it's something that needs to be done.

So anyway, this weeks theme was "idols". So I guess I have to say my idols are the ones who are confident, and the ones who have a grasp of what their doing Most importantly though, is the ones who know who they are as a musician. I've been jumping around sounds like a cheap whore ever since I started writing. I just don't know my sound, what makes me "me". Even if people don't have a genre, they usually have a sound that's their own.

I guess I'm still finding mine.

Anyway, enjoy.

Peace,
Scootabag




Extra Spiky Jeffthestrider (as PinkiePieSwear) 2/4/2012 5:49:10am No.39 - Score: 1
Sunshine and Celery Stalks is a fucking amazing song so I decided to emulate it. So I shamelessly copied the progression of the song but used Spike vocals instead of AJs.
