    Finland Article Translation! 

    This article popped up on the Finland news site Aamulehti.  Jussi has translated it for us, with a bit of nonsense cut out! Check it out below:
    The term 'Brony' stands for 15-35 year old, generally male, fans of the animated TV series My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, a show originally meant for young girls. The Brony community also includes women, although they are a minority. For example from the almost one hundred participants in the meetup in Helsinki in February only ten were women.

    Apart from watching the show the bronies also maintain blogs and forums and produce fan art, make remixes of the musical numbers in the show, make custom figurines, do their own fan animations and write fan fiction about their favorite characters. For example, one of the most popular pony fan fictions, called Fallout: Equestria, stands over 620 000 words long, and is therefore longer than Leo Tolstoi's War and Peace.

    Friendship is Magic promotes important values such as caring and accepting difference, as well as having a general positive outlook on life. The message of the show sits well with older audiences as well, says a pony fan from Tampere in an interview for Aamulehti.

    -For many the community is much more important than the series. It's not about the ponies, but the people

    Friendship Express Is Widescreen

    On the Amazon Page, they apparently had it listed as Fullscreen instead of Widescreen.  For those that were put off by that, it was apparently an error! So... Charge!

    Howdy from Houston EqD! The Rice University Brony group hosted this meetup, where we played
    Pony Jepordy, with categories like "What are you, a Dictionary?", "Things Pinkie Says", and 
    "Obscure Unicorn History". After that one of the Brony artists among us explained how he made
    this Rarity poster used for the Winter BroNYcon, and we finished out the night with some episodes of
    MLP and pony youtube vids. It was a blast!
