Instrumental time! I hope you're not in the mood for vocals, cause, well, you ain't getting any tonight until you eat your vegetables.
1.) Solar Empire VS Lunar Republic
2.) FraGmenTd - Pegadrome
3.) Sky Dashings
Have I used this before? I don't remember, but I'm going to use it again because quite frankly it is the best image ever. At the moment.
It's time for some vocals! I told you you had to eat your vegetables, but, well, you've been so good lately.
1.) Discord Rap!
2.) The Nightmare Moon Jam
3.) I'll Be Waiting (Derpy's Song)
[Grimdark][Sad-Tragedy] And Twilight ran. She ran so far away...
Description: A long drought has created food shortages across all of Equestria. In an effort to restore the country to its former glory, Princess Celestia sends Twilight Sparkle to the northern country of Prance to seek aid. But when something goes wrong, it starts a tragic chain of events that seems to have no end. With a sinister plot for power developing in the shadows of the sun, the entire world will be changed forever.All Links After the Break!
It's vocal time! Have some Discord, Scarlett Peace, and our favorite 14 year old rapper remixing Rainbows Blood, because some crazy event made a bunch of people jump all over that song in particular! The lyrics are a bit explicit, but I guess you can expect that.
1.) Discord's Lament
2.) I'm Not, But I Wish I Was - Scarlett Peace
3.) Interrobang Pie - Rainbow's Blood ( TheDumplingz Cover )
Recruits! Our rescue mission was a success! There's been so much to do, but even in the midst of a busy week and with the grind beginning to set in, you've persevered to bring in 327 lost and captured ponies! I know it isn't easy, but you guys keep sticking with it and churning out content in stupendous numbers. With an event total of 1805 images, we're in the final stretch. Give it your all!

Day 5: A Winner is You!
The whirlwind of activity lately has been so intense that you can scarcely keep track of everything that has been happening. One day a griffon assault squad storms the camp and is barely beaten back. Another day you're charging in behind General Derpy's siege troops. And that princess you rescued? Hasn't. Shut. Up. Not a single day has gone by without a quip from her or a close encounter of the lemon meringue kind. All the ponies you've come to know as friends have come back smothered in cherries.
And then all of a sudden... everything stopped. All quiet on the western front, and every other war story cliche you've ever heard. No more pastries or name calling or being yelled at. In their place, there's confetti and shocked faces and dancing in the street. "We won! We actually won!" somepony calls out. To your left, a minty green unicorn sweeps a cream colored earth pony off of her hooves and kisses her deeply. To your right, your superiors gather together and smile. Despite everything, you can't help but feel a sense of pride.
"You did great work, soldier," Derpy beams with pride and steps aside to reveal a shimmering portal, "You can go home now."
But... do you want to?
Assignment: Draw a pony coming home
Deadline: January 27 at 7:00 pm, PST (GMT -08:00)
Luna and Celestia detect that Discord, despite being imprisoned in stone, is still at work. Instead of attempting to fight him, they free him in exchange that he enter an agreement to, once again, challenge Twilight Sparkle and her friends. On the surface, this is to improve the abilities of the main six so they can confront unknown threats in the future, which Celestia and Luna are wary of, but Celestia also believes that the six may be able to remind Discord of a past life, where he would not be so motivated to malicious intents.They are looking for assistance though! Right now vector artists, voice actors, and anyone with skill in animation should watch this video for information on joining the group.
The story will follow Discord as he tests the mane 6 (minus Twilight) individually, separated from Twilight and unable to rely on her magic. Twilight, meanwhile, is instructed to join Discord, yet will she be successful in turning his heart?'
Check out the actual animatic fter the break!
|Art by John Joseco cause hes awesome and draws things in like 20 minutes holy Celestia|
If the banner and the headline didn't tip you off already, BronyCon has been invaded by everyone's favorite lord of CHAOS. John De Lancie, the voice actor behind Discord, has been confirmed for attendance! Can they handle the CRAZY? With their new massive venue, I bet they can!
After the break is the full writeup for those thinking about joining!

Wow, I completely forgot to post this in the Zap2it thing earlier. Someone had to submit it to remind me. Apparently a commercial is floating around for the We ❤ Ponies Mare-A-Thon, filled with more glorious Rainbow Dash lines.
So... Go watch it!
Apparently I'm a tag on the video. Thanks, I think :p
Engineer Earth Ponies need to happen! Clearly hooves and a mouth are the best way to build things. Hands are for losers who can't handle doing it the real way, and magic is for cheaters.
Have some art.
Over on Zap2it, a new press release has popped up regarding the We <3 the Ponies Mare-A-Thon. Buried in the stuff we all pretty much know about is an updated blurb about Hearts and Hooves Day. It's minor, but I'm sure some of you will enjoy digging into it and trying to figure out what it actually means.
I'll toss it after the break, or you can hit up the page and look for it for yourself.

Remember all those times when I said this community surprised the hell out of me? Well, double that. This is the best possible thing. The team over at PonyKart.net is going all out on this one. Everything from the graphics to the soundtrack look great so far. Apparently this track isn't even finished yet.
They will be opening up more slots for their group on Monday, so stay tuned if you want to help out!
Also Twilight Sparkle.
I'll stop blabbering and let you watch the video!

1.) DasDeer - Pinkie Responsibility Pie
2.) Ponies Love Jura (Drunk P0Nie Remix)
3.) Luna's Eclipse (A Song For Luna And Celestia) - NickThePunkRockPony
Another foreign Pony comic has been translated up. I almost wish it wasn't though based on that 4th page. Without reading it, I can only assume Rainbow Dash unlocked some sort of SUPER RAINBOW POWER MODE. That would be epic!
Thanks to Diegotan for the translations and rips!
A store called Comic N Stuff recently rolled out these Rainbow Dash shopping bags. Remember back in the day when we were only on the internet? What a silly time that was.
Each pack also comes with 30 popup stickers.
This week on Bronyville, Sandy is out of town so Cider enlists the help of the painfully British Midnight Shadow to join the discussion with three of the gentlecolts with Bronies for Good. Cupcakes, CWrebel, and Mastertortilla27 tell us of their efforts, the success of the Smile! charity album for the Children's Cancer Association, and their future goals. As always, there's listener emails, fanfic suggestions, and our one cool thing to round it all out.

A few days ago Bejoty let me know about this, and I completely forgot. It looks like Hey Ocean, (Ashleigh Ball's band) is looking for a coder to help them build an app.
So if you have any connection whatsoever with Rainbow Dash or Applejack, and want to give them a hand, go hit up their twitter and let them know!
You want cookies don't you?
