• Music: Fluttershy's Lament

    Source

    Oh my god.

    I used to not care about Fluttershy. What the hell happened? This song is amazing. It's so amazing I convinced Seth it needed a post on its own instead of being included in a regular music post.

    Find it after the break. Yes the banner is because of this.

    Oh my god.

  • Pony Chat Mobile Interviews Ellen McLain About Ponies


    Well, this one kind of came out of left field.

    Yet Another Pony Podcast did a special toy episode where they cover a wide array of pony toys. The Canterlot playsets and the papercraft sets were some of the ones they covered, and you can find that podcast here.

    But also included with the email was an interesting addition- an interview a friend of the team did, by the name of Midnight Dreams, with Ellen McLain, the voice of GLaDOS in Valve Software's Portal and Portal 2. They asked her some questions about ponies, and she said she'd gladly (ha) voice a pony if Studio B asked her to.

    You can find the video after the break.

  • Story: Luna's Day Out

    [Random][Shipping] Luna in socks+Avery Strange... Do you need more convincing?

    Author: Avery Strange
    Description: Luna's finally ready to get back out there into the world of Equestria, ready to see what's become of ponykind in the past thousand years. Except... she's not quite ready to go out on her own, amongst ponies that know only tales of nightmares and betrayal about her, and the one pony she knows personally is a little busy running a kingdom and raising the sun. When the offer for companionship comes from an unlikely place, Luna learns two great lessons. One, the risk to get to know a pony can lead to great rewards. Two, socks make everything better.

  • Pony Ice Pack

    Not the best picture on the planet, but apparently this ice pack is floating around now.

    I guess ponies really are compatible with ANYTHING.

    It was found in the cereal aisle at Fortinos, in Hamilton.

    Thanks to Chelsea for the pic!

  • Even More Tee Shirts at Welovefine

    I tossed the Steampunk one and two others in the nightly roundup last night, but Welovefine.com has just rolled out another huge set of official shirts.   

    Still a lack of Trixie I see! It's a shame I'm the only one that would buy a shirt with her on it.  It takes a certain type of intelligence to appreciate her showmareship.  Sadly only a select few are gifted with such cranial power. 

    You can find them all on this page!

  • Extended Main Theme Coming with Soundtrack?

    This is an interesting response from Daniel Ingram's facebook page.  Apparently Hasbro wants to include the full main theme (Found in the voicebox of the singing Twilight Sparkle toy) in the official soundtrack.

    The idea that there even is an official soundtrack on the horizon is neat.

    Thanks to Lt_Unrealistic for the heads up!  Braving that wall must be an experience to say the least after last night!

  • Story: In Her Majesty's Royal Service (Update Story 2 Chapter 14!)


    [Normal][Comedy]  Apparently this story made the pre-readers feel self conscious, since this author busts out amazing art too. In other words they liked it, a lot.

    In Her Majesty's Royal Service (All Links)

    Additional Tags: Guard, Ponies,Three, More, Words

    [Adventure][Comedy]
    Description: After guardsponies Storm Stunner, Crack Shot, and Check Mate proved instrumental in stopping an interdimensional incident that threatened to annoy the city of Canterlot, the Royal Guard made a realization: perhaps they might just be able to serve functions beyond pulling aerial chariots and trying not to blink in public.


    Now months later, they’re finally starting to get somewhere with each of the odd regimens they’ve designed; it’s a shame that three of their number will have to miss the progress to follow. In recognition of their prior bravery, quick thinking, (and to a smaller degree their dumb luck), Princess Luna has given Storm, Check, and Crack Shot a special assignment: to visit the lands on the borders of pony control, to sample the local flavors, and to maybe even take a picture or two. One might dare to call it a vacation.


    However, expectations mean little so far from home, and despite Luna’s wishes to keep the guardsponies out of harm’s way, the world can easily change in a thousand years. The three guardsponies may be forced to deal with the inconvenience of their vacation turning into an adventure.

  • Comic Con Final Poster Update

    Crimson Valor and his team has heard your pleas!

    They have modified everything and officially created the final version of the Comic Con poster for everyone to divulge in.

    There are multiple versions, some with border/comic con text, some without any of that stuff.

    The Deviant Art version is 5k resolution this time around,  meaning it should actually load on lower end computers.  The actual 30k file is still fully available for the new revisions though.

    Everything can be found on the Deviant Art page specifically created for this one poster.

    These guys deserve a lot of praise.  This is something you could bring to a poster shop and have printed out as a massive poster for your room, rivaling even the Comic Con versions.

    You can find all versions here, OC free. 

    Also a note from CV-
    "It has been confirmed by a member of the show's production staff that one of the characters in the balloon in the original poster is indeed Cherry.  Likewise, it has been confirmed by the same production member that the balloon's other occupant is an official character.  However, this mystery second character is an as-of-yet unreleased Season 2 pony and cannot be revealed at this time, for legal reasons."
