I just like to learn. You are likely to see cutie animals, fun science, beautiful art, social commentary and the occasional morbid curiosity on this blog. Life is so weird!

Which is a big deal for me because I only cut it like 2 times a year. I really want to shave off the right temple area for GDC but that requires maintenance and upkeep uuuughhh.

Okay, can we please just take a moment to consider “Smile HD” by MisterDavie, a video published on Youtube in August 2013. Similar to his previous work, “Cupcakes HD,” Pinkie Pie is the main character and attacks her friends with a smile worthy of a slasher flick. In “Cupcakes HD” she dismembers Rainbow Dash with the purpose of baking her organs into cupcakes. “Smile HD” features her beating her friends to death to a remix of her song “Smile” by Foozgoz. In the video description, MisterDavie says that Pinkie Pie is simply going on a rampage because she is tired of her friends laughing at her.
And yet, he decides to add a frame of Pinkie Pie breaking down into tears. That, and there was also a frame of the video, lasting only a millisecond, where Pinkie Pie and Fluttershy are embracing and laughing.
There is obviously a lot more going on here than just Pinkie Pie slaughtering her friends with a fucking creepy smile on her face, and Fluttershy beating the ever living shit out of Pinkie Pie. Now, I know that the MLP fandom has generally accepted that if there were going to be psychopaths in the mane six those ponies would be Pinkie Pie and Fluttershy. (If you’re wondering about Fluttershy, just go watch ”Shed.mov” by hotdiggedydemon. You will never look at her in the same way again.) So, in this respect, that could be all this video is playing towards.
So, why the moment of Pinkie Pie crying? A moment, mind you, that many Youtubers, brony and non-brony, were confused by. Well, obviously she is upset about the loss of her friends, who she killed, which is something completely different from what was presented in MisterDavie’s previous work. “Cupcakes HD” makes Pinkie Pie out to be a heartless sociopath perfectly content with performing a vivisection on her friend with cannibalistic intent clouding her senses. Why make her cry in this new video?
When watching “Smile HD” for the first time, I was reminded of the dramatic dialogue “Porphyria’s Lover,” written by Robert Browning. The dialogue describes a man strangling the woman he loves with her own hair in order to preserve one perfect moment. To put it simply, he loves and cares for her to such a degree that he kills her. There have also been real life cases where people murder those that they love because they cannot bear the thought of their loved ones falling upon difficult times. They believe it is better to kill them out of love than have those people suffer hardships.
With that in mind, look back at “Smile HD.” My own interpretation upon first watching it, especially with the song “Smile” in the background, was that Pinkie Pie is murdering her friends because she can not bear the thought of them ever being sad, and her not being able to make them smile. So she murders them, with a smile on her face, so that they will always be smiling and happy. Fluttershy, who has been shown in the series to understand the most aggressive creatures, is able to interpret what Pinkie Pie is doing and is happy that she cares for her that much (explaining that one millisecond where they embrace). However, Fluttershy is a fighter and doesn’t want to die so she continues resisting until Pinkie Pie kills her.
Yes, I understand what the creator gave as the description, but that’s just my interpretation of the video. I really think he was trying to say something a bit more, and people shouldn’t consider it as simply a gore-filled smack down with a techno-soundtrack. Especially when there are distinct differences between the showcase of emotions in “Cupcakes HD” and “Smile HD.”
It’s just something to think about.

I am a nurse. For 30 years of my career, I was a labor and delivery nurse. I took care of women through all stages of labor and through their delivery. Due to the many times that I have worked 16 hour shifts, I bonded with many women and helped them through long hours. Finally, through much work on the mom’s part with my guidance, she would be ready to deliver. In would sail the doctor, spend five minutes catching the baby, and then pose for all the pictures. I would hear from the families how wonderful he/she was.
Then why is my back killing me because I stood for two to three hours with a woman in a variety of positions including resting her foot on my shoulder while she pushed? Oh, and did I mention that she is also paralyzed from the waist down from the epidural, so I was also helping to hold her up while she squatted to push?
Why have I had to change my scrub clothes twice in a shift because someone either puked on me or amniotic fluid soaked everything?
Who is it that actually got that IV started while reassuring the poor mom?
Who is it that took the camera out of the daddy’s trembling hand and started taking family pictures because she knew that otherwise there would be no proof that he had even been in the room? And capturing the look of wonder on both parent’s faces at the same time.
Who is it that cleaned up every body fluid that can spew from a human, with a smile on her face and encouraging words for the mortified patient who has never been sick in front of a stranger in her life?
Who is it that tracked down the anesthesia people, chased them out of the lounge, and threatened them with their lives if they didn’t take care of her patient, NOW?
And when things didn’t go well, who was it that took that poor baby that didn’t make it, cleaned it up, dressed it, wrapped it in a soft blanket, and brought it to the broken-hearted parents to hold for the first and last time?
Oh, yeah, Dr. Marvelous is just great.
I’m just a nurse."
Nurses are so underappreciated, like, seriously guys. All of my best memories from hospitals as a child were because of nurses.
..I’ll never forget the first baby I caught as a student nurse because the doctor was out buying a magazine or something because the mom was “only 50 cents’ worth of dilated” and couldn’t possibly be ready to deliver for another three or four hours. Oh yeah.
Most doctors are wonderful. No question. But 90% of the people who take care of you in the hospital are the nurses.
