• Nightly Roundup #178 - Trixie!

    So, I got this in the mail the other day.  Apparently the DC brony meetup group sent one to each of us.  We appreciate it! Thanks guys!  Bonus points for the Greatest and Most Powerful pony of course.

    Have some news!

    I'm going to go take a break now... holy crap so much news.  Ignore the typos!  

    Pony Hairstyle Guides

    If you bought a pony toy, and have Rarity level OCD bout the messyness, a massive step by step guide has been released to help you all out.

    There is also an Applejack's hat guide, because she needs a hat. A hat-less Applejack is like Rainbow Dash without wings.

    Both sections can be found at the deviant art pages below!

    Ponies in Brazilian Newspaper 

    Sadly it hasn't been fully translated, but I've been told by Petra (The person that sent the image) that the general gist of the article is that pony isn't just for little girls anymore.  Pretty neat!

    EDIT: Translation added thanks to Federico

    A design full of colorful ponies and cute songs. Something for girls right? WRONG. The animation "My little pony: friendship is magic" featured in the discovery kids channel, makes a success among kids and teenagers.
    The fanaticism is such that they call themselves "bronies". "Brony is a guy older than ten years that watches the cartoon", tells Felipe Martins, 16, creator of a site dedicated to the subject. A "bronie" site exists already in english: www.equestriadaily.com. It reached almost 80 million views!
    The cartoon tells the story of Equestria, a world where ponies can talk and sing. Among the characters, there are unicorns and even a pegasus that leaves rainbows in its way.
    Most bronies started watching the show on the internet. It was with the premiere, last 21st, that the show became popular among the newest members.
    "My little pony: friendship is magic" features on Mondays at 8, on Discovery Kids.

    Dutch Meetup

     Woah, there are a ton of you out there in The Netherlands.  They gave me some copy pasta, so have it:
    Hello everypony!

    We’ve done it again! After two earlier successful two-monthly meets back in October and August we’ve successfully finished our third meet in Utrecht, The Netherlands! The amount of people that came doubled from 26 to a whopping 59 since the second meet!

    We rented a place in Utrecht to keep our hoofsies warm and had a lot of fun in the few hours we were together. Card- and boardgames were played, pony-related music was played, new people were met, interesting conversations were held and at 4 pm our time we all watched the live stream episode together! This resulted in 59 people bursting into singing the intro tune together and a lot of cheering was heard several times during the episode (and boo-ing when commercials came along). All in all, it was great fun!

    We hope to see all of you again on February 4th to help us wrap up winter and with a bit of luck, the amount of bronies in the Netherlands will continue to grow! Please visit www.bronies.nl for future updates about our next events and help us to make the community even bigger!
