RIP Canterlot Hill by


Welp. Today we bid farewell to yet another piece of the MLP Fandom structure, as Canterlot Hill - the quasi-successor to Everfree Radio - has gone offline for good.

Here's what they have to say.

In a Facebook Post from about 20 minutes ago, the staff says:

"Some people have noticed that our website, canterlothill.com, has gone down. This is, unfortunately, permanent. Over the last year, we've had some great times together. We've run some truly excellent programming, shared the music generated by this incredible fandom, and forged new friendships.
We realize that our listeners and viewers, not to mention the people running our regular weekly programming, have been frustrated with the lack of communications from Canterlot Hill staff.
Please know that we appreciate each and every one of you. We've been frustrated right alongside you, with our own shortcomings.
We are simply unable to keep the doors open any longer. We don't have the manpower we need. We don't have the time we need.
We're sorry, and though individually we will continue to be a part of this fandom, we can't continue as an organization.
We will miss being here with you all.
Farewell.
-Canterlot Hill Staff"

This is a sharp contrast to the post they made just last week:


Welp, the ride claims another.
Best of luck.

    2. Trying to get your followers to gang up on a fucking kid for being rude to you on the internet? Really? And you're HOW old?

      Maybe someone should post your Eric Wareheim-esque face along with the stuff you've done. Stuff like supporting Down With Molestia (when it got popular) while claiming to be friends with Molestia's artist.

    3. It's just a prank, bro. Shit. Don't get in such a tizzy about it.

    4. Purple Tranny got his Encyclopedia Dramatica post deleted but I think Horse News should publish an expose on the trans fats

      Once they climb out of his ass I mean

      Delete
    5. To be honest, I didn't even know who Purple Tinker was until he decided to make a tweet about me saying "Purple Tranny."
      Seriously though, after looking at his Twitter Account, I can assume that he was one of these types: https://youtu.be/2q9C1p4x_NU?t=1m46s

    6. Hey, they are pretty much a sociopath.

  3. Sadly, both the Facebook post and the tweet were by me. Which means I inadvertently lied. :(

  5. So finally the cancer is all gone. The remnants of Everfree Network has dissolved into poisonous dust. All we need are certain liers and childish morons that help run some of the cons and remaining sites left and the fandom might actually be able to be considered somewhat well managed. Pffft what am I saying there are plenty of idiots willing to make themselves look like closed minded idiots, look at Osaka Jack

    1. yea I agree they really needed to bury that fucking corpse it was starting to smell lol

    2. Canterlot Hill wasn't run by Final Draft, or (I THINK) even Osaka Jack et al. They were always decent folks, seemingly not run by ego or aspiration. It's sad that EFN lasted longer than CH.

      Delete
    3. I met Purple Tranny at a con once. He called me a nigger.

      Delete
    4. They still worked for EFN so are therefore by association cancerous, when you remove cancer you don't leave a little bit in just because you needed that arm or leg, it's dangerous and needs to be fully got rid of.

      Delete
    5. So like when Purple Tinker got his dick cut off, they should have just cut off his head instead?

      Delete
    6. Sometimes I wonder if Purple is even in the same fandom, but whatever.

      Delete
    7. Purple Tranny is in the "give me money" fandom

      Delete
    8. Touche.

      On a more serious note I've met Final Draft in person (both outside and inside pony conventions) and my conclusion is that most of the EFN people I've met OUTSIDE of him are unbearable. So he's irrelevant.

  6. Purple Tweaker is just another left-wing lunatic tranny granny who's just glamorizing body shame and genital mutilation. The problem I have with transexuals is that they normalize and glamorize their behavior, trying to force their beliefs down the rest of the populace's throat.

    Look, if you choose to be a transexual, that's your goddamn problem. But don't act like your lifestyle is the greatest thing since sliced bread and demand that others do it.

    They feel ashamed of their own bodies and think becoming another gender is a great idea. No. It doesn't always work like that. Those who wish to go through the transition need to be reminded of bodily acceptance; accepting yourself AS YOU ARE. You are fine JUST THE WAY YOU ARE. You have to deal with the hand you are dealt.

    Besides, would you really be happy if you switched genders? Later down the line, they either wind up switching back to their original gender, or commit suicide, because they're still not happy with themselves. Even more so, the transition is not perfect. Unless someone discovers a real life version of ADAM and literally rewrite your genetic code, there is no way you can truly become a woman. And even if that were to happen, the body would go through so much shock from splicing.

    Also, what's the deal with transexuals who get lazy and let themselves go? They never look passable. People like Purple Tinker and Brianna Wu, they look like old women. At least drag queens go out of their way to fit the womanly standard of beauty. Don't like what I'm saying about it? Too fucking bad. With most people, the fact of the matter is that looks matter. Stop lowering your goddamn standards.

    Also, if you're in your 50's or 60's, stop transitioning at your age. It's just midlife crisis attention whoring. No one wants to see your wrinkled middle-aged face. I could understand if you were in your 20s or30s but to take THIS long to figure your shit out? No. Either throw yourself in traffic, or overdose. PLEASE. No one wants to hear this bullshit anymore.

    1. Purple Tweaker recently came out as autistic. Not only hilarious, but would have prevented her from getting the dick-chop-chop surgery in the first place. So she's definitely regretting it now, but there's no way to un-chop the chopped-dick.

    2. You made my day, sir. Thank you.

    3. To be fair, the human species is one of the most gender fluid creatures of any global relevence. We all start out biologically as woman, and you have plenty of pseudohermaphrodites whom are genetically one sex but are completely the other (save for infertile sperm or eggs) due simply to missing signals/receptors at certain points in development. IMO, the real issue is that gender is largely a social construct, and people with gender dysphoria just happen to not fit snugly in either category. So when a post-op trans individual still faces gender-based depression, they're still suffering from cultural bullshit that people should leave well enough alone.

      To that end, I agree with the sentiment that people shouldn't give so many fucks about gender lines and be comfortable with themselves, but we do have a lot of cultural bullshit going on.
      Maybe someday, humanity will get to the point Equestria is at and, say, judge Big Mac in a dress by virtue of their actions and not their gender expression, but we aren't there yet.

      However, with every step of progress towards true equality among the human race, you only know you've achieved anything at all when you have some folks whom can appropriate the issue for their own drama.
      As a woman, I can safely say that there are plenty of other women out there whom miss the point of feminism to a farcical degree. But for me, I take it as an inevitable, but ultimately good sign:

      If someone feels safe enough to bang on about a cause without ever expecting to have to fight, protest or strike to back their cause up, well...
      We're at the point that you *can* say that women are equal human beings without fear of drastic repercussions, like getting involuntary hysterectimies, lobotomies or electroshock.

      So While the PT stuff may be "dank maymays" here and all, (and I honestly don't know the story, so I decline to comment on anything but that its honestly getting stale- more pony-related shit plz?) but if you see someone freely running with what's supposed to be a serious issue, then its getting better than it was in the past.

      And while I'm talking about all the controversial gender stuff, I wanna point out that feminism is about appreciating feminine concepts, things and ideas. Real feminism acknowledges it in everyone, regardless of gender. This means that if we, say, acknowledge and appreciate the feminine attributes in men, we'd realize its okay for a man to be a good, devoted parent, to have a sensitive side or be a victim. (you know, all those real men's issues that people see "feminism" as suppressing)
      How do people fuck up feminism so hard? Its *not* called Womanism, ovarism or anything sex-specific.

    4. Hey 15:24, prove any of your assertions made about gender and "true feminism" with facts based on legitimate studies, then maybe we can have an honest conversation. If this is all based on your opinion and what you BELIEVE to be true, well that has as about as much value as the toilet paper I used this morning.

    5. Your Google-fu must be shit- this is the first thing to come up: http://www.menshealth.com/health/3-signs-you-started-as-a-girl

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pseudohermaphroditism

      Oh, and for good measure, there's this village with a disproportionate amount of boys whom grow dicks at puberty: (because, again, humans are rather genderfluid a species) http://www.sciencealert.com/in-a-remote-town-in-the-dominican-republic-some-girls-turn-into-boys

      As for the ideas on feminism, I admit its my own personal bent, but in general, the more recent (aka: "Postmodern/Contemporary," or discussions from the past couple decades) angles on it are specifically focused on an encompassing understanding of gender and the idea of femininity, and not mindlessly recanting the essentialist "woman as mother" arcetype. Heck, people accuse it of trying to undermine political feminism- contemporary feminist theory is willing to go in the face of the established and political Feminist powerhouse.

      Unfortunately, though, its hard to find stuff on the Internet about it- people don't like to have to acknowledge the "other" as their fellow human beings in their angry tumblr rants. But this brqnd of feminism does exist.

    6. "If you choose to be transsexual" and with that, the entire lengthy post can be disregarded as from someone who has no idea what the fuck they're talking about.

      Seriously dude, do some research before flapping your gums and looking like an idiot.

    10. Lord, ignorant SJW's mudding the waters on gender again. Let me say this first, the term gender and sex are interchangeable based on their real definitions, but for arguments sake I'll refer to them using the SJW dictionary.

      Gender, as in ones gender role in society based on stereotypes, I will agree is fluid and IN PART a social construct. While there is a biological factor these stereotypes stem from, as a species and society we are not wholly bound to them and don't need to be pigeonholed in the roles we play. However, biology will always play a factor and create built in limitations.

      Sex, the biological factor that determines male and female in all mammals and most species, is not fluid, nor is it on a spectrum. Over 99% of the human population can be classified as biologically male and biologically female, with the mass majority of this population wholly accepting their sex classification. The 0.03-0.05% of the population born with birth defects, sometimes referred to as intersex, are an outlier. They fall outside the norm, quite literally are abnormal, and do not represent the average human being. They are an exception, not the rule.

      As far people that identify as the opposite of their biological sex, due to a combination of biological and environmental factors, suffer from a form a dysphoria. What's fascinating is this identification is based on gender stereotypes. It is because of this I have no real issue with transgender individuals and believe should be accepted as merely another part of society. If gender is really a social construct and is fluid, then who cares what role anyone plays? In the end though, regardless of gender roles and identification, ones sex classification is static.

      No matter how one behaves, no matter what hormone treatment or how much cosmetic surgery they receive, their biological sex is still that they were born with. Well, that is untill gene-therapy becomes practical, at that point people may find they can literally change their sex from one to another.

    11. No thanks. I prefer the Incinerate plasmid as opposed to a Gender Swap gene tonic.
