• Brony Day 2011 Festivites Around the Internet!

    It's tomorrow on the East coast now right?  So lets get this show on the road!

    A whole bunch of stuff is planned for Brony Day! 

    Below the break you can find all sorts of events sent to me in the last week, celebrating the first official holiday for pony fans everywhere.  Lets make this a yearly thing!

    I will continue to accept more entries, so keep an eye on this post for anything new!  If you have one to submit, send an email with BRONY DAY as the subject line. 


    Fibers.com (I hope they don't mind me stealing their logo for this hah)  has opened up a custom brony T-shirt shop.  They don't own the actual license for the show, so the designs are subtle... which is kind of a good thing for those of you less open about your pony obsession.  Their main deal is customization, so everything can be fully modified to whatever color/type combo you can think of. 

    They tossed me a coupon code you can use at checkout for 5 Dollars off in honor of brony day.  They are also letting me give out a free shirt voucher!

    I'll run that the same way as I always do.  Send me an email with FREE SHIRT in caps, and I toss your email into the pile, then random off the winner at the end. 

    For those of you looking to buy one, the coupon code to enter at checkout is: Brony4Life

    You can find the shop here!


    Bronies Appreciation Dinner

    Bronies-NYC (the ponies behind the every-three-months pony extravaganza known as BroNYCon) will be holding a Brony Appreciation Day dinner mini-meet at Cha Cha's in Little Italy, Manehattan. No admission fee, since it's just dinner in a restaurant.


    Those crazy bronies over at Everypony Radio are running an all day 26 episode marathon starting from  7 GMT-6 , with a bunch of extra stuff mixed in.  They expect it to end at 7PM!

    You can find the site here!


    Ctone on Deviant Art is giving out hats! Literally all you have to do is email him and he will put you in a drawing for one at the end of Brony Day.  Pretty easy right?  So go do it!  Slackers...


    Terraria is pretty aweome!  When I first picked it up, I thought it was just another minecraft clone, but it's addicting as hell once you get going.

    Have a whole pile of copy paste.  All of these contests start NOW, and end on August 25th!
