Animation World Network recently posted this article all about Friendship is Magic, covering everything from the history of the show, to why it is so successful among it's accidental demographic.
This one dug out some really interesting extra information too! There is a whole section about Derpy Hooves (Sounds like Jayson was the culprit here!) and the team's initial reaction to her, as well as how Lauren Faust was hired to work on FiM in the first place.
You can find the article here. It's ditching the nightly roundup, because it's awesome. I'll spam the blog with Trixie for a week if you complain!
Another brony is modding Super Mario World with pony stuff! So far gummy is the main addition. You can find the embed after the break!
Now would someone please create that Lyra Megaman game already?
Now, I know what you're thinking: Seth, for pete's sake, stop posting Trixie! We're all sick of Trixie! Well, guess what? It isn't Seth this time, so you can all yell at me. I can take it. I like Trixie, too. Just not as much as Seth. Though, this fact might be debatable considering I do have a three-part story starring her on the blog. It's all irrelevant- look at that craftsmanship!
This comes to us today courtesy of KNA, who did the other papercraft ponies. You can find the two separate parts of Trixie's design (her body and her outfit) in these links:
Cloak and Hat
And, of course, you can find the instructions here.
Be sure to thank KNA for all his/her hard work! Stuff like this isn't easy to make.
Anyway, the Tubey Awards have moved on to a new round of polls. Friendship is Magic is up for the following:

3.) Transformares 3: Dark of the Mare in the Moon
I finally get to start sneaking posts into the schedule again. Today's offering is an as-of-yet unfinished comic about Pinkie Pie building a giant robot and getting some serious parrrr-tay on. Y'know, like you do when it's 5 am and you have a giant mechanical version of yourself lying around. Ah, memories.
At any rate, have a look. Flamingo, our artiste du jour, has put together some wonderfully vibrant visuals and a Pinkariffic little story so far. He's also uploading it panel by panel, so instead of spamming the hay out of this post with image after image I'll simply link you to the gallery below. Have fun, everypony!

In case you weren't aware, the bronies meetup group network just keeps growing and growing. Starting with three groups (NYC, Portland and Seattle/Tacoma) several months ago, we have now grown to EIGHT groups all across the United States!
And now there is a site that will show you exactly where the nearest brony group to YOU is. Now you have no excuse to not socialize with your fellow bronies! Don't worry-- they don't bite. :)
Just go to http://www.bronies.com/ and click on the handy-dandy "group map" link, then select the area nearest you. It's that simple!
And if there ISN'T a meetup group in your area (Chicago and LA, I'm looking at YOU!) and you'd like to start one... well, step up to the plate and shoot Purple Tinker an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. She'll help you get started. We're always looking for new chapters!
Some reminders: The two big brony conventions, Northwest Bronyfest in Portland and BroNYCon in New York City, both have events coming up! Northwest Bronyfest is going to be held next on August 6-7, 2011, and BroNYCon on September 24, 2011. Start making your travel plans-- these are worth traveling for!

I almost want to order a custom giant one and move my computer in!

Ponies are popular. They're almost too popular, by now, in terms of keeping up with all the fan output. As a result, several quality pony videos have doubtlessly slipped through the cracks. Pinkamena is sad, knowing that those videos deserve another shot. This is that shot. This is their chance to shine at last. This...is Youtube catch-up. Details after the break.
