The fact that an immense human achievement was overlooked because of a fucking shirt is evidence that we are the most pathetic generation of human beings in years
Seriously, fuck you all
ISIS is cutting off people's fucking heads and there are people crying about a shirt made by his female artist friend

In other news, 9 working days left before I class up and I get to be active online again
And I get most of December and January off for New Years and Orthodox Christmas

Russian Ground Forces - Training Day II by Gvozdi
Russian Ground Forces - Training Day II
After the training session, we are given a review and a final assessment
We were told we did a decent job, but had to explain why some of our actions were irregular or otherwise not suitable for the scenario
For the most part, it was just a glorified field testing of some new gear and how they work in some colder weather conditions and damn was it cold that morning
My face was at least, I eventually borrowed someone's goggles just to keep my eyelashes from freezing

All in all, I am enjoying my new life and my career choice is not as bad as I thought it was now that I am in the routine of things
Ura Russian Ground Forces!

Russian Ground Forces - Training Day by Gvozdi
Russian Ground Forces - Training Day
Since everyone has been doing selfies and shit lately for some reason, I noticed I can totally one up everyone and post bad ass shit instead
So here

At my newest command, I am required to do a few weeks of additional combat training and new equipment familiarization
So here I am, you should be able to guess which one I am - with members of my battalion doing a basic patrol scenario
It was a very cold day - but the new uniforms the Russian Federation gives us are fantastic, keeping us warm and keeping us effecient
This new gear is top of the line, everything from the boots to the magazine pouches are superior to the shit we had to deal with in Boot Camp
As for weapons, they are the same - some compensators and newer optics out there - but I did not personally get to play much with them

Nothing confidential here, you've seen all this shit on my brothers over in Ukraine on the news and shit

For future reference, I am not going to be posting any pictures of my base nor what installment I am at
Let me just say I am near Georgia and lets end it at that

Two more weeks of additional familiarization, weapon manipulation and training
Then I can finally class up and start my language learning shit
Loading...
So yeah
Normally this is something I'd put on tumblr
But I don't like using my ask blog as a personal tumblr
So you poor fucks will have to deal with my shit

I took the time this morning to get up early (which is easy considering my internal clock just wakes me up at a certain time)
And watch Rainbow Rocks online
And I enjoyed it to be honest
I felt some of the designs, specifically the Sirens, were slightly over done and obviously pandering to Hasbro's intentions to market toys
But overall, I found the characters to be fun and the overall plot, as deus ex machina ridden as it was, to be fun and with some surprisingly well produced songs

Now I wish I could say that I am gripped and intrigued by the obvious setting of an American high school essentially
That I am over taken by the atmosphere and that culture I never experienced 
But I was educated in Germany and unlike most Eastern Europeans, I did not get that experience while watching this
I did get a good dose of nostalgia though
Even though it reminded me more of college
The cliques, the groups of people you meet, the projects, and so on
I remember getting talked down in college for being late to class or doing bad on a test
I remember being stressed and embarrassed about that shit
And nowadays, I get fucking ripped apart, sometimes hit and forced to exercise for making mistakes here in the military
Yet another way to gauge where my life is at now - in a positive way, however

Protip - if anyone here is trying or wants to join the military, get a thick skin beforehand

Anyways, I thought the soundtrack was a healthy dose of variety and catchy ass tunes
The references were more subtle this time around, while also in your face (Rarity's Daft Punk reference for example, even though I thought it was fantastic)
The whole movie is a lot more subtle and knows its fanbase is familiar with the setting, so it feels less forced than the first film
I really enjoyed it for giving Sunset Shimmer some strong character development, realistic one at that - making her a suitable substitute for Twilight in that world
Trixie got some brief spotlight and I adored the shit out of it, her song especially is my favourite on the soundtrack
The Siren's have great singing voices and their songs are easily the best and most welly composed
A mix between mainstream pop and near the end, some strong industrial metal elements - at one point, some riffs reminded me of Rammstein 
Overall, their voices are really fitting to their magical skill and I found myself listening over certain scenes over and over again

The movie is fun
As simple as that
And catchy as shit
So I highly suggest it to be honest
Whether or not it is canon, that is up to you
My only real complaint is that Luna and Celestia feel kind out of character so they can fit into the more authoritative role they needed for some scenes
They otherwise felt like cardboard cut outs of themselves occasionally talking though

So, with the Eastern Bloc Brony series - I tend to bring up how this relates to my culture 
I think one of the things that is interesting is once again, that youthful innocence that is present in the atmosphere here and in the show that really brings people from the Ex-Soviet world in
Our schools, our heritage is rough and while they are becoming more common now, we never had time for individual competitions like battle of the bands or anything like that
It is a fun escape, in my opinion - the Russian school system from the 90's was terrible 
You can see the results in the youth and young adults today as a result
Once again, this is more of an observation as I did not get educated here personally
But I still feel that Rainbow Rocks brings a certain level of wonder that some people will be like "Shit, I wish we had a school where fun was allowed"

The music that is actually used is the kind that you'd find dominating a lot of Russian radio stations
That sort of popy-rock
And with the electronica/dubsteppy stuff
And the somewhat industrial rock riffs at points
It is very modern music, obviously pandering to the music loving/creating side of the fandom
Movies like this are just surprisingly aware of their audience and what can sell in the States and over the pond

On a closing note, the animation style is very robotic at points
Scenes with extra detail stand out in a disjarring way and there are some interesting perspective work, that may or may not be 3d at points
But I overall feel that they were just flexing their budget to show off and some parts suffered over all as a result

My biggest gripe is that the movie is short
I am aware it is for kids
But they could have taken all those shorts they released on youtube and put them in the beginning of the movie or something to help pad it out, give it better foundation and overall - more content in one sitting
One large fault that you also see in the series is that there is a very formulatic variation of dialogue going on
Which was not always present, as in the early seasons
Usually one character will say something, then AppleJack will say something strong headed, Rainbow dash will be arrogant, Rarity will say something about fashion, etc. etc.
The show suddenly suffers from "Whose Line Is it anyway" like line delivery, as if trying to remind us that yes, this character is in fact there
And yes, this is because they do have a limited amount of time to tell the story while focusing on primary characters
But like I said
20 minutes of those shorts added would have made the whole thing feel... 
I dunno, if I paid to see it, I would have expected at least 20 to 30 minutes more out of it

But - to hell with complaining
7.5/10
Genuinely enjoyable, if not wooden and forced at points - a good experience that is great for just relaxing and enjoying some cute colourful people doing magic stuff and singing

Russia
Makar Rusakov is a German born, mostly ethnic Russian living in the city of Chernyakhovsk within the Kaliningrad Oblast. A professional welder by day - he spends most of his time wishing he was an astronaut, instead of an IZ fandom writer at night. He recently returned from Russian Boot Camp and is attending his job training at his newest command.

Makar enjoys long walks on the sun in his tracksuit and freestyling with Gopniki outside of bars.

Makar is most well-known for creating the character Strelok, essentially the Russian Irken Boba Fett. Since their Blood-Sport debut, they have spawned fan art from many and earned admiration from many more.

Makar also owns an ask blog for his cannibalistic pony - Metal Fang: askmetalfang.tumblr.com/

Gagarin by 85MAG
I adore space.
My only regret in life will be not becoming an astronaut.
Yuri Gagarin is my hero.

A new night of humdrum scares
The troll presents to your dares;
          "From 8-bits to Freddy's at night
           All wails away at my thirst for fright."
His pause ends with Neverending Nightmares.
