• Artist Training Grounds: Mock War, Day 1

    Greetings, conscripts! Does the evening find you well? Did you put on your beret like I asked you to? No? Twenty demerits! This is not a game, you know!

    Now, for these games, you're going to need to remember the rules of engagement. You kept your pamphlets, right? Well just in case, here they are again. To make this even simpler, here (Currently Down!) is your submission site. If you're having problems, your contact frequency is phoe@equestriadaily.com. Feeling lost? Here's some great tutorials from your friends in the original ATG alumni. Get it? Got it? Good!

    Day One: Welcome To Camp, Soldier!
    Today has been a whirlwind affair, to say the least. You're not quite sure how you got here, or indeed where here is, but for the moment you don't have time to think about it. There are ponies, ponies everywhere, scrambling about or doing push ups or patrolling about and forcing others into lines. Also, you have hooves... Huh. As you stand there trying to get your bearings, you are approached by a gray pegasus clad in ornate golden armor. She looks you up with one eye, and down with the other. After a long pause, she nods her head in something not unlike approval.
    "All right," she says with a voice that is entirely too adorable for battle hardened visage she's been keeping to this point, "I won't lie. Last time we held these games, the griffons beat us into the ground so hard we found potatoes. They haven't let us live it down since. But now? Now that all stops, thanks to all of you. I bet you have a lot of questions, and rest assured you will get answers. Eventually. Probably.... Maybe."
    "Uh... excuse me." Calls a pony somewhere to your left.
    "What? No time! Follow me, all of you. It's time to get you dressed."

    Assignment: Draw a pony wearing armor or a uniform.

    Pencils up.

  • BroNYCon Invading a Bunch of Stuff!

  • Instrumental Music: Allegrezza- Evolving Friendship / Discord's Pimp Hand / Shadow Archon battle theme


    Something the new per-listener system has always had trouble with is determing how "pony" a song is. We have decided to add a new subsection of "instrumental" music. These will be anything from techno Scratch songs to fanfiction music. This is NOT dumping ground though, so expect a pretty heavy amount of quality control, and they still have to have a pony feel.

    This time around, we have a two bagpipe brony songs, dedicated to both Allegrezza and Discord, and a track based on Through the Eyes of Another Pony that makes me really want to play Super Meatboy, just listen to it!  

    1.) Allegrezza- Evolving Friendship (feat. Octavia and Vinyl Scratch)
    2.) Discord's Pimp Hand (Discord's Theme)
    3.) Shadow Archon battle theme

  • The Brony Show: Episode 35



    We have episode 35 of the Brony Show today! Have some copy-paste:

    Hello everypony! It's another Monday, which means another installment of the Brony Show! School may be starting up again, but The Brony Show is still going strong, striving to raise the standards of fun and hilarity you've come to expect from us. Join Circuit, D-Pad, and Hypermark as they deliver your daily dose of pony in a convenient pill form, with just a spoonful of sugar to help the medicine go down.

    You may notice that Foxtrot's name has been omitted. Our good friend and former co-host has decided to step down from his post and pursue new horizons, and we will miss him dearly. Join us tonight for Foxtrot’s last episode of The Brony Show as we send him away with a bang: our Swan Song to a wonderful individual and fellow brony.

    We shall start promptly at 6:00 PST (that's 9:00 EST for our east coast fans) with the news, ranging in subject from our humble show updates to BronyCon coverage to other pony news. Then we'll move right into our interview with RobBob and the rest of the geniuses behind Epic Cupcake/Pie Time, where we'll answer the viewer questions as well as ask our own. You'll also get our coverage of the newest episode, Family Appreciation Day, after which we'll dive into a smorgasbord of pony videos and random hilarity. Join us for Crimson the Wolf's Oatmeal Galore Afterparty when the show ends for even more fun!

    www.livestream.com/thebronyshow or www.thebronyshow.net
    It all starts at 6:00 EST/9:00 PCT. Can't wait to see you there!"

    It's been a busy weekend for everyone and I'm sure a lot of you fresh from BroNYCon are feeling a little like Dash right now.

    Talking about the Con, if you missed the streams and the festivities we've got some more material in tonight's Roundup to wet your palette with.

    Also, since some of you have requested it in my previous posts, I have included a biography on who I am in this edition, so check it out if you have been wondering over the past month who this Calpain guy is.
