Today's featured article – Equestria Girls
My Little Pony: Equestria Girls is a Canadian-American animated film produced by Hasbro Studios. The film premiered in the U.S. and Canada in 2013 across limited screens — limited primarily by the absence of patrons in front of them.
The film is based on My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, but re-casts the characters as schoolgirls rather than ponies. The film's plot imagines that Twilight Sparkle is a prom queen whose crown has been stolen by a bitter Sunset Shimmer. The producers believed that morphing lovable ponies into backbiting, treacherous teenage girls would overwhelm their subsequent morphing into a new line of play toys that everyone would be expected to buy.
Hasbro has multiple sequels on the drawing board, in which the ponies become effeminate high-school football players and the nerds who bully them, then supermarket cashiers with a venal shift manager who insists that they count out the customer's change.
"Princess" Twilight Sparkle and her Ponyville friends arrive at the Crystal Empire for a ton of palace intrigue. Twilight still struggles with the fear that she is not fit to rule, a fear oddly shared by everyone else. That night, Sunset Shimmer appears through a magic mirror and steals Twilight's crown. The good news is that Sunset falls back into the mirror. The bad news is that the crown does too. Celestia says the mirror leads to a different world, where children play with movie-themed toys more than once. She insists that Twilight enter this world to retrieve her crown before the portal closes again for thirty moons, and travel alone, and leave her pocketbook "for safe keeping." Twilight, like most members of Royalty, is a complete dupe and does everything her courtiers tell her to. Her dragon assistant Spike anxiously jumps in afterward. (more...)

Whey, also called milk serum, is what you get when you take milk and drain off all the milk. It is a by-product of agribusiness and has several lucrative uses. Sweet whey is a by-product of making cheddar or Swiss cheese. Removing by-products is one reason Swiss cheese is full of holes. Whereas, sour whey comes from making cottage cheese and yogurt, neither of which have holes to begin with. (more...)
