    Once again Tara Strong surprises me with a voice credit. This time I was watching the Studio Ghibli anime film Spirited Away and she voices the baby of all things. :eek:

    2:29-3:00 "The steam train along that line, which was also a single carriage, was known as a 'jinny' or a 'jenny', as in the female donkey, not the girls' name. The nickname seems to have transferred over to The District after after the Hammersmith and Chiswick Line closed. Transport historian J.E. Connor says the service was also known as 'The Pony', which I've not seen referenced anywhere else, but I would guess that the electric train was seen as being faster than the old steam train."

    Guess which colourful equines he showed on the screen when he mentioned "The Pony". :p

    Haha now that's what were missing, any TOC's want to introduce a new flagship service (preferably diagrammed by HST) and call it 'The Pony'? I could picture The Pony roaring down the main line at 125mph, so much better than the boring train names they seem to give now.

    I actually saw a news article today where psychologists said that kids should enjoy the summer instead of being focused on catching up in education, and the photo featured two girls playing. One of them was wearing a Rainbow Dash T-shirt. Kinda cool to see ponies invading the news indirectly.

    I hadn't heard the name Verity in ages, so my brain just autocorrects to Rarity...

    I'm sure most, if not all of us are gonna have ponies invading our day for the next few weeks because of this, especially if we're out and about:
    [​IMG] I'm sure this is the first time anything My Little Pony related has been advertised on a bus. The Friendship Bus advertisting the 2017 movie doesn't count since it wasn't a public service bus.

    My mother is watching a Netflix show called "Maid" and showed me a clip. One of the episodes is actually called "Ponies" and features the main character's young daughter receiving a large bag of secondhand pony toys as a gift. Most are either off-brand or I think G3 ponies but I definitely spotted a couple of Rainbow Dashes and a Shining Armour. :D

    I've had a pony invade my day and not realised it until much later. I've been hooked to Coldplay's new song Coloratura, listening to it loads of times. I then finished my rewatch of Season 5 only to see the episode introducing Countess Coloratura, or Rara as Applejack calls her. It was quite the realisation that I was amazed by. How did I forget about that character!?

    I watched The Girl Who Leapt Through Time a couple of days ago and I recognised the voice of Shining Armour as Chiaki. I was surprised at how many other pony voice actors were in that film though. Shannon Chan-Kent, Brian Drummond, Nicole Oliver and Tabitha St Germain all had voice credits too!

    Well, that comes as no surprise, seeing as it was dubbed by Ocean Productions.

    In Worcester on Saturday, I passed by one of those shops that sells discount toys and suchlike. On the table outside was a battery-powered doll doing twirls and so on to the accompaniment of tinny music from an internal speaker.

    The song playing? "Babs Seed." o_O

    Sounds like one of those Chinese bootlegs.

    So, I’m watching an episode of The X-Files, a really old one ‘Born Again’ from the first season, would have been filmed around 1994.

    One of the characters is played by a very young Andrea Libman (she’s playing a creepy little girl whose psychokinetic)

    Reading Amazon reviews of a book called Factfulness, and near the bottom of the list of press reviews was this gem:

    "Bestselling books about statistics are as rare as unicorns. One that gets to No.1 is as rare as a lunar unicorn."

    I mean, there is only the one Princess Luna!

    Another day, another pony actor in the X-Files. This time Matt Hill (Soarin’) was in a season 2 episode called Fresh Bones.
