mass amnesia.

for some reason, almost nobody remembers what happened during a specific span of a few years.

those who do remember only have good things to say about the timespan, but these are few.

most ponies now are too young to even have been alive at the time.

so what happened that was so great?
and if it really was so great, then why doesn't everyone remember it?

write a song about it.


  • allotted time: One week
  • what to submit: ONE (original, remix, or whatever) tunes, in response to the theme.
  • Songs cannot be longer than 8 minutes. (Anything longer will be skipped and/or deleted.)
  • Get your entry in by Saturday 11/9/2013 6:00pm EST (see the "Deadline" countdown for a better idea of when this is.)
  • PLEASE enable downloads on your entry. Even if you think your entry is bad, someone in the chat may think otherwise. (also it helps to prevent archive decay, since a TB mod can grab a copy and archive it.)
  • head to irc (or the flash link if you like pony emoticons) for a sync-listen once the deadline reaches zero!

The Method of Loci Resonant Waves 11/8/2013 8:55:22am
The Method of Loci (plural of Latin locus for place or location), also called the memory palace.

No one remembers anything! This track is about The Method of Loci, many tried remembering and came across this method to help improve their memory loss, intelligence, and recall this incident that Occur.. or what if no one doesn't know they have amnesia O_O but i wonder what happened that effected everyone to lose their memory. o_o (goes into fetal position) P.S hello! everyone c: how are you? been a while! hope you enjoy this small track, it was inspired to be a menu theme BGM! which explains the 1 min track but hope you like!

If you analyse this song, you will find it is way more ego than what you hear at first.
Srsly, spectrum analysis this shit.

Lyrics :P
I had a great track
But then I forgot it
I used to know music
But now I don't know shit


Groose Happened Spikey Wikey 11/8/2013 9:27:31pm No.12
Groose fell off of Skyloft and landed in Equestria but he was a big jerk so Celestia banished him to the moon where he remixed his own theme song and then shot everyone with a confusion ray and they forgot everything the end.

I tried my best, but it's not quite there.

Anyway, I know I'm not going to do any more "fixing" on this track before Saturday, so screw it.

This is what ponies having a mass orgy sounds like.
Sorry, you made it too easy.

(everything was sampled from playful poni music)

Lexical Amnesiacs The Fear of Being Lonely 11/9/2013 12:42:26pm No.15
Language is a strange idea, endowed to all of us through interaction. We decide as a culture what labels are associated with what ideas, but describing those labels requires using those same words we have to describe. Cyclically, paradoxically, the words describe words that describe words that describe words.

What would happen if no one had a word for an idea except you? What would you say?

An experimentation in subtlety. Feedback is appreciated.

Crying Memories A2Z 11/9/2013 4:14:03pm No.16
Your memories are your past. When your past becomes lost, you only have yourself. Take solace in the joy of new beginnings, but remember fondly of a time once lived that will never be again.

I checked the prompt a couple days ago and immediately thought of a stupid thing that I could do. I'm not in love with how it is right now but it was fun to make. Hopefully it's worth at least a small chuckle.

Abduction Serrated Skies 11/9/2013 5:22:29pm No.18
I imagined that everyone was abducted for a week, put into some sort of euphoric REM sleep, and some ponies remember it, but most don't.
This was my best attempt to do something that kinda sorta fit that.
