  • Story: The Star In Yellow (Update Complete!)

    [Dark][Normal]

    Author: Blueshift
    Description: Deep in the Royal Library is a book. A terrible book that is said to send whoever reads it mad. A book so dangerous that it has to be hidden away and secured with chains to prevent it from ever being opened.

    A book which has just been accidently checked out by Spike on behalf of Twilight Sparkle.

    The Star In Yellow is rising once more, and only Rainbow Dash and Spike can save Twilight before it’s too late. Ideas live forever. Ponies do not.

  • Random Merch: MLP Valentines / Notebooks

    Source: Ex the Ferret
    Pony invades pretty much every form of merch. If you can fit a picture on it, they probably have a Rainbow Dash version.  For all of you starting a new semester after Winter Break, these are floating around right now. The actual store wasn't listed, but they exist... so I guess it's hunting time!

    And if you want to get a head start on Valentines Day, a store called King Swoopers currently has MLP Valentines in stock.  It looks like everything is still using the same vectors.  It's a shame we don't get some new ones!

  • Music: Winter Wrap Up (Sparkle Mix) / At The Gala (Elliptisoar House Remix) / Snowy Equestrian Night

    We keep getting these amazing Winter Wrap Up remixes.  I am actually kind of tired of the real song, but they change it so much these days it's like a totally different track. I've been listening to it for the past hour and can't stop! Just download it.

    We also have some house, and a snowy song, because it's snowy everywhere other than where I am/plan to go.  Confound it New York, where is my winter weather?

  • Clarification on YouTube Stream Takedowns

    I assumed this was common knowledge after the Ponyarchive cease and desist, but I guess not!

    The actual "Hasbro.inc" take-downs are actually legitimate take-downs.  Even the "Habsro inc." was just a typo. 

    The emails are always protected legally (So I can't toss personal proof up) , but someone did create a video on YouTube of his experience with contacting them directly about it.   You can find that after the break.  They haven't told us personally to stop linking streams, but they are removing them from Youtube.  


    --Sethisto's Trixie-Free Opinion Section--
    We grew up on Youtube.  Without it, this fandom wouldn't be anywhere near as large as it is.  While I can support it from a legal/sales standpoint, it is confusing from the marketing side.  Having easy access to episodes, any time, has always been a massive boon to the community. 

    What was the norm ten years ago, when we would look at the TV guide and plan our schedules out to catch a specific episode, doesn't really fly today.  Fanfics, PMV's, Art, and music are always released the date a new episode airs.

    I don't think Hasbro/The Hub was prepared for the brony phenomenon, and dealing with something like that while still protecting their assets is going to be rocky.  Who would have thought My Little Pony would grow like it did?

    --End Sethisto's Trixie-Free Opinion Section--

    Exploding about it won't do anything.  Don't treat this like Ponyarchive did.  Large corporations are complicated. With DVD's on the horizon, it is sort of required that they protect their copyright.  It's difficult to sell something in mass to a retailer that is completely free. They have investors, retailers, legal representatives, and hundreds of other sects that need to be appeased.   How they will decide to deal with the"brony" group while balancing the others is still undetermined.  For now, the best thing YOU can do is give them your take on it civilly, be it in comments here, or through their various contact forms

    Hopefully in the end, we can get some sort of understanding going.  Aside from this, both The Hub and Hasbro have been really good to us.  It's not worth bashing them over.  Take it in stride. Until something crazy happens, we have been dealing with this for months now, so don't expect any major changes yet. 

  • The Brony Show Episode 24

    Another week, more live pony. Have some copy paste after the break!
  • YouTube Copyright and You!

    With the recent Youtube takedowns, the music community over on My Little Remix has compiled a quick copyright how-to guide on plowing through their claim process.  For those of you who aren't like me with their contact info a Google search away for the last year (Anonymous doesn't work when you run a giant pony blog that makes media people drool at the potential hilarious editorial for "insert magazine/newspaper here".), this will give you information on avoiding using it! 

    This is for the fake reports though.  Hasbro is actually taking the full episode streams down, so it doesn't really work for you guys!

    And as with most Youtube guides, do your personal research before blindly following it.

    Check it out after the break!

  • Drawfriend Stuff #293

    We don't usually get a whole lot of Applejack compared to everyone else.  I wonder if her two upcoming episodes bump her popularity up a bit?

    I was going to use an EPIC Trixie image for the header, but I figured you guys would yell at me. 

    To the art!

  • Story: Pale Cocoon

    [Crossover]

    Author: Inky Notebook
    Description: Long ago, ponies once lived upon the surface of the planet. The archived records are all that remain of that world. Ponies have long forgotten the greens and blues that Equestria used to be. Living day to day in a metal world, one pony seeks to gather the truth. As a member of the Excavation Department, Antiquity's job is to dig up records of what Equestria used to be before the Princesses departed. But will those records lead to answers or just more questions?
