Its funny, when I see a thread about a cartoon, I think its going to be about the cartoon.  When you see a thread about a cartoon, you obviously think of sex with children.  Maybe you should go seek help before those urges get the better of you.

Dear Princess Celestia,

Today, I learned that road trips to visit crazy, cat-obsessed relatives who may-or-may-not be the Third Doctor are much more enjoyable adventures when you bring Pinkie Apple-Pie along. Also, Trixie was right about the wheels.

Your faithful student,

...and how far did that get them?

that's kind of what i meant about the episodes themselves.  there are sideways references to alot of things, but it's kinda conveniently glossed over when the actual episode storyline is more important...

i guess i see it as one of those "stars without makeup" kind of deals, where when the six are running around doing whatever they're doing in the episode, they're out of context, and people aren't EXPECTING them.  also, as was mentioned, you can take the pony out of ponyville, but you can't take the ponyville out of the pony.  they're kinda used to having to pull their own weight, but every once in a while, it's convenient for the episode to remember (or forget) that they DO have connections they can use...

fair enough.  it wandered a bit afield, but even with the bits falling where they may, cadence/sa's wedding would have pretty much landed all six of them in the same social standing as the people hired for will&kate's, though, whether they blatantly show it or not...

[i.chzbgr.com image 248x375]

...and how far did that get them?

I think we're also dealing with a problem of scale. Let's just forget about the bottom six billion people on the planet completely and concentrate on the top 15% of the world's population who have a western standard of living. The divergence between the 1% / 99% is an easy-to-remember slogan, but that's still 3,000,000 people in the United States alone. There's about as big a wealth gap between the top 0.01% (30,000 Americans) as there is between the 1% and the 99%. When we imagine a thousand people who might participate in a one-in-a-billion event like a royal wedding, you're looking for one-in-a-million caliber people.

Back in Equestria, we're looking at a population of a few hundred thousand (assuming a few thousand per town, with some towns larger than others) at most. You're a lot more likely to become a big fish in a small pond. Even if we assume Equestria's wealth disparities are comparable to those of the US, the one-in-a-thousand ponies may be doing pretty well for themselves, but being part of the top 1%-0.1% (vs the top 0.01%) still doesn't guarantee you a cab ride in Manehattan.


And poor Thunderlane.... the cabbies won't even stop for him, especially at night

Sure, they're not going to all be Smile Smile Smile, but they've had some damn good ones. Even Racist Barn was okay, though this episode's AJ song was better.

And you know there's going to have to be a song in the Weird Al episode. And the Filli Vanilli episode. In fact, that string of numbers Meghan McCarthy tweeted out sort of confirms those are the song episodes.

And herein lies the difference between money and wealth. A million bits' worth of money means you can blow it all on a 20-year sugar and cider bender. Being a princess, magician, fashion designer, athlete, veterinarian, party organizer, or apple farmer means you have wealth: the ability to generate more money as required. On Earth, social class corresponds inversely with the amount of effort required to generate said money; the harder you have to work, the less social capital you get with the job. The Equestrian economy is geared more along the lines everypony doing whatever it they're best at and letting the bits fall where they may.

That jibes nicely with filly Applejack's reaction to Manehattan social life: "buck that noise..." It also fits well with Rarity's "Sweet and Elite" trip to Canterlot; she'd have farked it up completely without a little help from Fancy Pants, who helped cover for her after every social faux-pas. You can take the pony out of Ponyville, but you can't take the Ponyville out of the pony.

Is Rarity even rich?


depends on how you describe it.  she seems to be in the "rich" category of people who make lots of money but don't actually OWN much, because they go through it about as fast as they make it, which is why she's so fanatical about her fashion career.  that's how she maintains the "style to which she is accustomed"...  i mean, as stated, she can always find jewels, so it's not like she'd ever be left with nothing, but she does have (and play with) a lot of money...

Speaking of Disquord, he's back in episode 11.

Episode 12, of course, is the Weird Al episode.

And Episode 15 (IIRC) is called Filli Vanilli. I'm assuming the cutie mark crusaders get famous by lip syncing, only to have things go horribly wrong when the record starts to skip.
