So my professor brought up something interesting today: is there anything actually wrong with being elitist? As in, is elevating the elite above the rest of the crowd bad? The example he gave was the music of Schoenberg. It is inherently not music for the populace, and that is one of it's major criticisms. However the counter point to that is, well so what? What does it matter if the common person can't understand it, does that mean it's bad? Further, is there anything actually wrong with art that is obviously aimed at a lower common denominator? Is not the fact that the said work is targeted at people who are not as knowledgeable grounds for not being taken as seriously? For instance, why should a band like Switchfoot being given the same credibility as say Handel?

Let's even take it to the hard sciences. Why should the opinion of say, a chemistry student be just as viable and valid as somepony who's only background in chemistry is reading the ingredients in the back of a Coke bottle?

I don't necessarily agree with all of this, but it's interesting to think about nonetheless. It's funny how the world culture has shifted from doing anything to try to get in with the elite, to there being a universal distrust of people who are knowledgeable.

in theory, no

unfortunately on the internet "elitism" means really boring idiots getting huffy and upset about really boring things and losing any and all ability to shut up about it

Is it possible though. To be so educated in music, that you suddenly only have the ability to enjoy and critique a very narrow selection?
My evidence, is most folks I've met who had extensive vocal training. They then judge all vocals by classical singing criteria and don't seem to understand or be able to enjoy any sort of alternative singing style.

You have the ability to critique anything you want no matter how educated you are, it just doesn't mean anything unless you know what you're talking about.

Yo, what's the region code for getting into the Pchan region?

I know it's back in business. Yo, let JamesJoycia in bruh.

Also NationStates General I guess.

Shit's cool, you should try it. If you want a really chill version of stuff like Civ. Kinda cut down, but it's still cool to build a nation with small choices.

Really, /oat/? Were triple fives the best you could give me this year? Well, whatever. Congrats on your merger with MLPchan. I'll definitely continue with my annual GETs on the new site.

Much love from GETchan, and see you next year.

Discord suddenly appears to you and tells you that he's tired of all your clopping and is here to put an end to it! However, being the spirit of Chaos, he can't resist making a bit of a game out of it, so he offers you a choice of one of two wishes:

Wish option 1: You can have any boy/girl/pony/whatever you want, he/she/it'll be eternally faithful and you'll be together forever.

Wish option 2: You can wish for this every evening, but it will be gone by morning, and if you wish for the same one they not have any memory of you.

So what'll it be, monogamy and a relationship, or wish fulfillment of everything but that?

Hmm, that is quite a question. Right now, I have no desire for an actual relationship, so I guess I'd just take the wish fulfillment. However, it may not always be that way. Welp, I guess I'll just have to hope that my potential future mate will be kinky enough to enjoy spontaneous and guiltless threesomes. I'll take #2.

isn't 1 just strictly superior to 2?

True, but I like planning my fanstories as Pseudo-canon. It's like taking the long way round to have what I want by making sure it fits in with canon lore.

For example Epic Mount lives in Everfree Forest (seems writers like to make shit up and add to it when conveniant). Since MLP:FiM has yet to fully explore the forest to proove it, you can't say it is entirely untrue.

I mean yeah it's non-canon thus isn't true, but can still logically work!

My headcanon is that all the fourth-wall-bending, cartoony stuff that Pinkie Pie can do is because she's partly an Earth Pony and partly descended from a "Chaos Pony" created by Discord when he ruled Equestria.

Also that Screwball is a Chaos Pony created during his escape at the beginning of S2, who may or may not have ceased to exist when Discord was re-sealed.
