The Fall N3uro 4/14/2012 9:10:42am No.6 - Score: 3
Well, I know I haven't made anything in a while, but I've finally got something.

It's definitely not anything close to perfect, but I worked pretty hard on it, and I think I'm SLOWLLLYYY improving- so hopefully you enjoy a little!

Fluttershy's Gala (Bear Murder Remix) Neon Jalapeño 4/14/2012 8:29:41pm No.17 - Score: 3
To my left was a glitched Playstation game. To my right was my iPod, with F3nning's "Fluttershy's Gala" song playing.

This was the only logical conclusion.

apple skytree (what have i learned in a year remix???) sci 4/14/2012 8:54:17pm No.18 - Score: 3
we're going back to the moment where I earned my own cutie mark: almost exactly one year ago, with "apple skytree".

I tried remixing it. I'm not sure what to think of it...noting that I don't want to change much.
bleh whatever, I tried.

I hope you like to see me again Bartekko 4/12/2012 3:13:08pm No.2 - Score: 2

Verse 1: Welcome everypony, I hope you like to see me again.
Waiting wasn't easy, the boredom almost ate my brain.
It feels like i was for a million years in a stone.
I'm not gonna wait for friends, I won't let fun get postponed.

Chorus: So apparently i have been misunderstood.
I didn't mean no harm, I just wanted good.
when I wanted to party, you were never in the mood.
when i partied alone, you've been acting very rude.

Verse 2: Can't you see, what thanks to me , you have gained.
If you're having problems, then let me explain.
Chocolate rain, and pink clouds everyday.
colored floor tiles and trees that don't decay.

Con Mane Theme Mixolydian Pony 4/13/2012 6:35:58pm No.3 - Score: 0
"Ah he's known in the spy world, Mane. Con Mane."

A quick theme for the "spy" from episode 24 of MLP:FiM. I know that he was more of a Bond reference, but I took cues more from Mission Impossible for this piece. (Namely the iconic 5/4 time signature and rhythm pattern.)

Composed, arranged, and synthesized in Finale.

Enjoy :)
