My Little Rambling #81 – Vinyl Scratch is Too Cool to Speak


With an unknown amount of time to wait before the second half of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magicc’s fifth season airs, I figured I’d take a look at a question that came up during its panel at San Diego Comic Con 2015. One fan asked why Vinyl Scratch (a.k.a. DJ Pon-3) “can’t speak,” and the show’s staff responded as I expected: they said that she chooses to speak through her music, which makes her cooler. It’s not that Vinyl is mute: if she did open her mouth, it might sound like dubstep bass (which would be a pretty bizarre sight, in my opinion.)



Thus, it’s a safe bet that Vinyl Scratch won’t be getting an official voice. Am I disappointed? Not really: after all, fan videos such as Epic Wub Time have already accomplished that. Vinyl’s choice to “speak” through music instead of words certainly adds a whole new dimension to her, enhancing her already enigmatic persona. She shows the world all of her character that she needs to: she loves electronic music(created with the help of magic, of course) and isn’t ashamed to express it. It’s certainly been enough to help make Vinyl a fan favorite (myself included.)

Mark is g33ky about a lot of things, including music (especially his hero “Weird Al” Yankovic); movies (just about anything goes in that category); TV (ranging from older Simpsons to Breaking Bad to My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic); and video games (he started with Sonic the Hedgehog 2 for Sega Genesis, and his modern consoles of choice are the Nintendo 3DS and – most recently – Wii U.) Some of his other favorite things are cats, Chipotle burritos and long walks on the beach. His least favorite things include poison ivy (the plant, not the smokin’ Batman supervillain), rude people and the inevitability of making a typo or two.
