Themes ▼

whether you like it or not, time marches on, and progress is unstoppable.

and more often than not, it's for the better.

so why not embrace it?

this week's theme is: dawn of a new era.


  • 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 11/23/2013 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!

A dawn of a new era... an era OF ZOMBIES

ya I missed the deadline for last week's toast beard and I didn't want this to go to waste so have this breakbeat thingy...
also, the excerpt isn't from a fanfic, I just quickly came up with something for the theme. If there's any writers out there, feel free to expand on it!

The three fillies cried in horror as the monster they once knew as Fluttershy approached them with drooling lips and a devilish grin. They bumped into a corner and collapsed on the floor with teary eyes.

The tip of one of Fluttershy's hooves cracked off as she trudged towards the cowering crusaders with her eyes fixated on them.

"There's no need to be afraid girls..." the pale pony said calmly.
Suddenly, she began to sing...

INSTRUMENTAL (as in no intro story):

Time doesn't just march on, it marches backwards, up, down, and sometimes diagonally as well.

Scattered, We Unified (from an EP to raise money for the Phillippines) Somasis 11/17/2013 6:50:03pm No.4

I felt really bad for the victims of the typhoon that hit the Phillippines recently, so I decided to put together a few songs I’ve made in the past months and release them to raise money. All proceeds will be going to the Philippine Red Cross, to help aid people who were hurt by the typhoon’s effects, as well as help with people currently homeless by the aftermath. Please donate, if you can!

The vocals were tragic, so I removed them to save everyone from a horrible death.

Yup... Title pretty much sums it all up...
For once I am trying to sound a bit "good" instead of my usual fucker-upering...

Can't say I like it to much... but at least I now have all the synths saved, so it wasn't a total waste. Learning, yay!

And once again, shameless self promo. Polka plot, pretty sure I'll get it out this weekend... nah... Due to an unexpected girlfriend I'm probably gonna push it back a week.

Open sea. Marooned without a chance of reaching land.

But you caused this. You took the risk. The consequences are now yours to live with. Who knows whether someone will come upon you or whether you will die here first.

The waters below are infinitely deep. It seems so easy to just reach out... to take the plunge...

Sometimes, it's a need for contact, any kind of connection, that drives us to the next stage of our life.

oh and the song is about two souls entering the spirit world + journeying on into the 'next life' wow ~so conceptual~

"This needs something...!"
And I know you're not supposed to taste the cake before it's done, but I'm just so excited about moving out of silly, messy, all-over-the-bed sampling like I was doing before, and into much more professionalish fun stuff. *nod, nod.*

I'm your Auntie Pinkie Pie, and I hope this is your jam!

Sampled EileMonty's vocals from "Picture Perfect Pony"!
