• Nightly Roundup #413

    Daring Do swings into action! Coming one thousand summers from now to a moon near you, it's the latest hot non-film out of not Hollywood, and best one to not see the light of day since Celestia's cinema debut in Some Like it Plot. The non-existent Daring Do film wowed imaginary critics up to three towns over from an undisclosed starting location, and promises to feature all of the crystals, dungeons, Nazi-ponies, and nuke resistant refrigerators your little pony minds can handle. If you don't not see one film this summer, make it this one. Or not.

    On with the actual news.

    Children of the Night Animation Seeks Talented and Motivated Voice Actor to Play Tired Grown Up

    You might remember this project as the drop-dead gorgeous fan animation seeking to tell the story of Luna's fall from grace by way of child napping to create a kingdom of eternal night and dreams. If you haven't seen any of the buildup to that, then... surprise! It's beyond fantastic. But they need a voice for their narrator character, a little pony who lived through the events of the short. You should check out the details here, and either try out or poke a friend you might know who could be up to the task.

    Houston Bronies Make Contact With Omnipony, Declare Successful Meetup

    Omnipony came all the way from New Jersey to visit family, and the Houston Brony Group knew just what that called for... a PARTY!

    Omnipony blasted some of his awesome music and Djed the rest of the time while people chatted, played trading card games, or played Fighting is Magic on a huge projector screen. We from the Houston Bronies just wanted to let the Mane6 team know that we are extremely impressed by what ya'll are doing and are so excited for FiM! Personally, I won't be surprised if FiM becomes THE staple thing to do at meetups all around the world, keep fighting the good fight guys! We then played a game of Pony Jeopardy created by one of our own, and the winner was none other than Omnipony himself (who was dead last most of the two rounds, but was the only person to know the answer to the Final Question "What is the title of the book Spike accidently burned in Owl's Well that Ends Well?" [Hint: This is how he knew: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SLG9aEZa_eg]). Also, the Houston Bronies wanted to give a shoutout to Omnipony's parent's, because... having parent's that are bronies and are 100% behind you being a musical celebrity at the age of 15 is -> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hYjpE1I7XbE

    SoCal Bronies Declare War On Concept of Non-Meetup News Items, Gain Traction in Form of Gigantic Writeup

    This past Saturday, 36 SoCal Bronies met up at the Irvine Spectrum for a day of hanging out, toy store raiding, and fun!

    The day started off just gathering from 11:30am-12:30pm. At 12:30, the existing group split into two groups; one headed to Red Robin and the other to Panda Express. The Panda Express group finished faster and went to Barnes and Nobles for awhile then off to the Target. Once at the target, the Red Robin group finished up and reconvened with the Panda Express group at Target. At this point it was about 3pm.

    After the Target was raided, we ventured our way to the Apple Store to convert EVERYTHING to pony! Our mission was going well until a staff member went around and started resetting the machines. All that work, wasted. We then went over the Hot Topic to buy pony swag! Pony shirts, sweatshirts, pins, and trading cards were bought! After Hot Topic, we went to Dave&Busters for some more food, games, and hanging. We spent around an hour hanging out and talking pony (watching failed at playing Portal 2! Haha, that was fun though!) We had a royal wedding of our own with blind bags, ponies, and plushies!

    The group then left the spectrum and went off to more local stores to pony raid! We headed towards the Toys R Us in the Tustin Market Place where we were successful in buying blind bags! Then to the Target across the way in the Tustin Market Place where more ponies were bought, including more trading cards! Then off to another Target not far from there where more ponies and card were bought. After the raiding was complete, we reconvened at a local Denny's to show our spoils!

    We ate food, listened to music, opened ponies, drew and enjoyed each other's presence. As the night started to come to a close and some bronies started to head home, a small group remained and headed over to our very gracious host Briston's home! We sat around the TV and did what Bronies do best, watch My Little Pony! We sang to every song that came on and talked about interesting facts during the episode currently being watched.

    All in all, very awesome and amazing day! Thank you Briston for putting this together!!

    Seriously, Look At That Writeup

    Jeez, Guys.

    An Open Letter From A Dramatic Reader on The Youtubes

    Hello dear reader over at Equestria Daily,

    I'm a brony on youtube that does fan-fic readings and reaction video's.
    I have a small audience of about 106 subs.
    I'm taking requests for fan-fic readings and reaction video's, and currently having a small contest where 4 people can win a reading with me.
    Sadly this is going really slow because I have such a small audience. And I know that alot of people would want to win a reading or would want to submit a story they want to have a reading of.

    Here's some links to: My channel, 1 reading, 1 reaction video and to the video of the contest.
