Markey Mailer Interview – Ed Valentine

MarkeyMailer2[1]

You might remember the Markey Mailer from the earlier days of the G4 community, and their interview with Peter New and Cathy Weseluck.  They have returned with an interview with MLP story writer Ed Valentine to talk about the episodes he wrote during Season 4.  We’ve snagged a few highlights, as the full article can be read over on the Markey Mailer.

Admittedly I never thought I would ever be interested in any form of ‘My Little Pony’.  Much like writer Ed Valentine, my exposure to the concept of ‘Ponies’ was largely based on the show and toys from the 80’s.  “When I heard the show was relaunching I remember joking with my friend at Nickelodeon when I was there,” he told me.  “I said guess what, they’re relaunching Pony.  Wouldn’t it be funny if I end up on that show?  Because honestly, I would not have thought that I would be writing for a show my little sister had pony dolls of.”

We then talked about the other episode he wrote for that season (‘Flight to the Finish’).  “I’m so proud of that episode,” he said.  “I was so honored to have been entrusted with that.”

The premise of the episode features the school children coming up with different ways to perform a show in the opening ceremonies of ‘The Equestria Games’, the equivalent to the Olympics in the series.  “The idea is that it was the kids, the little ones, gearing up for the Equestria Games,” Ed said, “trying to do something so that they could be part of it but not quite knowing how.”  One of the children named Scootaloo finds herself convinced that if she can’t fly her performance will not be as good as her classmates’.  Try as she might, she just can’t and she becomes frustrated and disappointed.

The hiatus can be hard on us all. Without new content to inspire it can be hard for some artists to crank out new content. On the other hand it is a great time for new talent to arise and fill the gap with the seasonal regulars. Recently I had the pleasure to sit down and interview one such rising talent over Skype to get some light insight into why he decided to make music in a genre we don’t see too often in this fandom.
