And now things are so much better -- we hear it and love the smell of napalm in the morning.

Excellent point about the Warner Bros. cartoons -- I think it's safe to assume that's the first place a lot of kids heard classical music, especially "What's Opera, Doc?" (and in fact that was kind of my dissertation topic...)

Vinyl's not mute. She just prefers to speak through music.

What I really want as a DVD or BluRay extra: Video of the writing/storyboarding sessions for this episode. Everyone involved was clearly having far too much fun.

Oh, yes, and that's terrible and it's ruined the show forever.

Donny dies in every timeline in the multiverse.

Sometimes you eat the bugbear, and sometimes, well, he eats you.

Good lord, you're right. These people lurve them some animation -- like Pinky as Pepé le Pew in "Griffon the Brushoff."

You clearly need to try different professionals -- which can suck if you're in a small town where mental health providers are scarce. But depression is treatable. If you go to a doc who doesn't take you seriously, insist on seeing one who does.

A couple of resources: National Suicide Prevention Hotline: 1 (800) 273-8255

Depression Support Group Finder: http://www.dbsalliance.org/site/PageServer?pagena...

Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance: Phone: 1-800-826-3632

Mental Health America (For referrasl to mental health services or support programs in your community): 1-800-969-NMHA (6642)

Also search your state/county's health department online.

Depression sucks, but it's also treatable. I've been living with it for decades, but the point is, I'm living. You may need to try more than one or two counselors and psychiatrists (counselors help with talk; psychiatrists are MDs who can prescribe antidepressants) before you find a good fit, but it's worth it.

He's in the can, man

He died -- like so many young stallions of his generation -- he died before his time. In your wisdom, Celestia, you took him, as you took so many bright flowering young stallions at Khe Saddle, at PadDok, at Stable 364. These young stallions gave their lives. And so would Donny. Donny, who loved bowling.

You really should give it a try -- genuinely surreal humor, cheerful absurdism, an amazing cast, and top-notch writing and acting.

Huh. I sound like someone trying to convince a skeptic to watch MLP.... Except, sure, MLP doesn't have F-bombs detonating every 23 seconds.
