I’m still gearing up to get back into full-time music reviewing, but this is an album I can’t let wait.
Pounce Aid is a collection of 25 tracks from artists like Reverbrony, GatoPaint, Screams from Equestria and even Eurobeat Brony, compiled to help out a really great guy suffering through a major medical crisis. You can find out more about Pounce’s situation from Scribbler or the #help pounce tag here on Tumblr.
The album’s listed for two bucks, it’s definitely worth more than that, hopefully you’ll give it a listen and find a reason to donate even a small amount, because every little bit helps.
Matt Smith’s off to a cracking start. Fun episode, a little thin on plot for the sake of introducing a bunch of characters, lots of really powerful visual storytelling. Smith has a lot of the same energy, and I like that he dresses like a schoolteacher despite being even younger than Tennant. Also, I really like what they did to the Tardis, aside from the uppy-downy bits in the middle. I mean, glass bulbs, really? Why?
I like Amy, she seems like a fun, feisty character, maybe a bit like Donna but smarter. Rory I know shows up again later, in what capacity, I have no idea, and he seems a bit like Mickey, but hopefully that means — if he becomes important — he’ll have a similar arc of going from comic relief to finding his potential. Looking forward to that, and pretty much everything.
