Together we can Raze this Barn...! by SkycatcherEquestria Together we can Raze this Barn...! by SkycatcherEquestria
I love AJ, and I loved this episode (and song... being a bit 'country' myself.)

But I couldn't resist the play-on-words with this homophone and the "history" of the Apple family's barn(s). Sing the song in your head while reading down the left column, then the right. =)

Used VLC + YouTube streams to get the screen caps, then Photoshop 7 to assemble it.

In retrospect, I should have included a fruit bat or three in that 4th row somewhere, but her looking from behind the tree going "uH-ohhhhh" was too priceless.

Parasprite = JayBeeBug
Dash = TheEarwig
Pinkies = MysteriousKaos
AJ = Anxet


And edit: I looked at the view counter and saw "wtf 5k", and realized it must have hit EQD, heh.

The barn is officially a running gag. Not just it's destruction, everything that happens to it.

I knew somepony would notify, or make a joke about the fact the AJ's barn has been smashed down four times now.
Great job!

Well I have to say that AJ episode was over the top I loved it. I'm not a country fan but I think her song was the best in this season thus far. Second best was Bad Seed. Well done with the comic though art wise though I believe that some of the comments down here held true for over doing the Raise barn song.

I hated this song, the same way I hate Call Me Maybe. It's an alright song, but after the tenth time you replay it in your head, it get annoying.

Ah, sure enough, heh. =) My search for "raze" didn't catch this one. The difference I suppose, is the play-on-words here.

Yours is more well done though. I really like the cause for the destruction being in the center of the panels. Adds a really funny dimension to it. It's original too!

Actually the word is "raze" which means to destroy, a homophone for raise, which means to bring up (and can be used to mean build)

I apologize if my cold humorless attempts at spreading knowledge explained away the joke.

It is true. The apple family barn does get destroyed very often, and it always comes back looking exactly the same. There is something very strange about that barn indeed. Sorcery...black magic...Cthulhu? There should be a Twilight Zone episode on the Apple family barn.

It doesn't really need to be the SAME barn for the joke to be humorous. Just the fact they had a barn on their farm destroyed 4 times and possibly raised one on top 4 times as well already counts for me.

It doesn't need to be the same barn for the phrase to work. "Raze this barn" can refer to the current barn in the lineup, with the pictures depicting the other barns that have been razed in the past.

I like the design of this comic over the one or two others I've seen with the joke, Skycatcher, with the source of the damage in the center. Doubling the numbers is a little awkward, though. Putting the number next to the cutout of the source might have worked better.

I could see that yeah, re: your last part. What I was going for was to have the song singing along in your head, while going down the left column first, then the right column second, hence the repeat of the numbers. =)

Oh, I see it now. I've only listened to the song once so far, forgot they counted between the phrases you used, and left-to-right reading pattern took over.

Barns #2 and 3 weren't their main barn. They were secondary barns a good distance away from their main barn. #2 was one Applejack asked Rainbow Dash to demolish so she could assemble a new one in its place, #3. #1 was destroyed over a year ago, leading to another one being built off-screen. This barn is the one that gets destroyed in Apple Family Reunion, prompting a family-run barn raising.

Yep - I wasn't trying to propose that they were all the same building, hence the "barn(s)" joke in the description. ;)

The next barn will burn down, fall over, and sink into the swamp. But the one after that one will stand, and that's the one you will inherit.
