• Nightly Roundup #421

    Checked the last Roundup I did and it looks like Pinkie beat out all the rest in being tonight's header! I'll probably keep asking for headers for the rest of the week so leave a comment stating which MLP character you want to have as the header next. Whichever one gets the most upvotes will be the next to go up!

    Anyhow, news time guys. This one is rather large, so you'd better set some time aside to read it.

    Ponies in Roblox

    A new pony project is trying to make ponies in Roblox. They've just started, but have already made some progress and hope to add more and improve on what they do have in the future!

    Copy Paste:

    A few friends and I are working on a big project, which is making Equestria on ROBLOX. It’s not off to a real good start, but we’re getting there

    As I said, we’re not off to the best start, but we’ve made Twilight and Pinkie Pie (just about!) so far. We have a bit of a team, so now the rate of the update is going to be faster.
    If you look at the attatched files, you’ll see some WIP models.

    I know it’s really not much to look at, the ponies aren’t that good, but we’re trying out best to improve them!

    Elements of Absurdity - Episode 3

    The Elements of Absurdity's THIRD podcast is online!  We've migrated from SoundCloud over to Youtube due to lack of space.  Please see our SPECIAL MESSAGE on our SoundCloud :3

    In our Third Show, the cast of EoA thank Equestria Daily for their help by playing a song.  DJ SpriteShine interviews a promising newbie Music Artist who goes by the name of Oplex.  And as a special treat, Oplex performs a LIVE remix for our show!  Octaviapus and SpriteShine go head to head in a debate of who is best Music pony:  Octavia?  or Vinyl Scratch?  The Cast calls for Artists to draw a Ponified version of Neil Armstrong in tribute to his passing.  As a prize, DJ SpriteShine will mail his own drawing to the Brony he finds has the best picture.  

    The Cast also goes to EQD and reviews a lot of Newbie Training Ground II art and encourages them to keep at it.



    Successful Meetups

    Sunshine Coast, QLD Australia Meetup

    he inaugural Sun-neigh Coast Meetup was so AWESOME!
    We had a small contingent of eight and we all had some sweet little pieces of swag to show off, I
    jelly as heck of the McDonalds ponies.
    The group started off the beautiful day outside by walking up and down Cotton Tree and its wonderful beaches, debating r34 and r63. Lots of lulz were had.
    Then a quick drink stop, and raid for ponies, which was overall a pitiful exercise, Australia gets all the basics but bugger all blind bags. I acquired best pony AJ, finally.
    To cap our day off, a fantastic game of mini golf ensued, and many ball jokes were made.

    Fantastic times were had, and there will be future Sun-neigh Coast Meetups!
    The next meetup near us is Winter Wrap Up, previously featured on EqD, go and check it out, everyone is welcome for the epicness sure to ensue. And now, there is a legitimately awesome prize up for grabs from the trivia! Come and join the QLD Bronies, where we all love and tolerate the anger out of each other. Every day.

    Seattle Bronies

    Copy Paste:

    So we decided to get a few bronies together and check out the new Ferris wheel in Downtown Seattle. We had a blast and got something to eat on the waterfront afterward. While eating, we heard and saw several fire trucks go by. We peaked out and discovered that the nearby Pier 56 had caught on fire. So we did the only logical thing left to do: get a picture! We view it as a tribute to Summer BronyCon 2012. After that, we visited a comic shop at Pike Place Market (they had ponies!) Then we went to a silly hat shop, where we took a photo in tribute to Everfree NW. Then we walked down to the International District and got bubble tea, sitting down to discuss the finer aspects of equine society. Finally, we visited a Pink Gorilla and a bookstore. All in all, it was a really eventful day!

    Athens, Ohio Meetup AKA Bronies Show Calpain Ohio

    Never thought I'd be writing about my own experience with a meetup in this section! This past Sunday five other bronies and myself met up in uptown Athens for a day of touring, eating, and good drinks. The day started off wonderfully with a trip to O'Bettys restaurant where we all finally met and then had breakfast together. After our meal we retreated to a nearby bar for drinks and stories as the bronies accompanying me told me everything from events experienced at BronyCon and Trotcon to crazy stories about the wonderful Ohio Bronies group.

    After we had drank our fill, we explored the important commercial districts of Athens, guided by bronies that knew their way around town. Hot and a bit tired, we retreated by to the bar for a quick snack before ordering pizza to take back to my apartment for us to chow down on. Arriving at my place we quickly went back to discussing the Ohio group and ponies in general!

    While we didn't really have anything officially scheduled as the meetup was on such short notice, we still had a blast! With good food, good drink, and good friends (new and old), anything can be a fun time. I'll certainly be looking forward to the next meetup in my area sometime in the near future! Here's to you Ohio Bronies!
