• Nightly Roundup #249


    Derpy has the best eyes.  Sometimes.

    Have some news.

  • Music: Smile (Bronified/Whitetail Remix) / Smile (And don't you dare to stop Mix) / Been Dreamin (Greatest Chapter Mix)

    Lots of smile remixes coming in!

    We have two new ones in this compilation, and a Been Dreamin revamp to finish it off!

    1.) Daniel Ingram - Smile, Smile, Smile Song (Somewhat Metal Cover feat Bronyfied & Whitetail)
    2.) Smile! (And don't you dare to stop Mix)
    3.) [Thank You Cover] Been Dreamin (Greatest Chapter Mix)

  • Character Screentime Analysis


    We have had charts similar to this before, but this one takes it above and beyond the past ones.  All the mane cast characters are painstakingly timed from every episode.  Based on the captions, he factored pretty much every single aspect of a characters appearance.

    I'm surprised Applejack had so much air time, considering she really didn't have a huge presence overall in season one.   Twilight is pretty obvious though!

    Anyway, check out his DA page here if you want to thank him!

  • Short French Pony Documentary Translated

    I don't have any french ponies to use! Ridiculous.

    Last night in the roundup, I tossed a video in there from a French news group.  Sadly there weren't any captions or anything, so most of you couldn't understand it! luckily a few people went through and translated all of it.  For the most part it's actually really well researched, imagine that?

    Check the video out here (turn on captions in the Youtube menu), as well as the entire translation in text form.


  • Friendship is Magic Storyboard Artists Breakdown


    With all this talk of Jim Miller floating around from our recent Twitter plugs, a bit more storyboarder information is more than welcome!  

    Mutating Raven over on Deviant Art recently dropped this really interesting look at the different people working on each episode.  I'm sure everyone has their own favorite, so it's nice to finally toss some names into the mix for each of them!

    Below the break, you will find both season one, and up to A Friend Indeed" for season two, along with each of the story boarders that worked on their respective episodes.

    Author: C. Theron Vulpin
    Description: Twilight has discovered a strange old book purportedly written by Star Swirl the Bearded, and Rainbow Dash discovers a latent spell in it that transports the two ponies to a strange island in the middle of nowhere.

  • Ponies and SCIENCE!


    I'm sure a bunch of people out there are scratching their heads at our odd little community and FiM in general.  Luckily, ponies have gained the backing of SCIENCE in an attempt to wipe out the confusion! Dr. Patrick Edwards (Seen above) is embracing the brony culture with surveys and convention visits, observing with a scientific eye.  His goal is to explain why we like this show, and how the hell we built an internet culture around it.

    Check out his interview here for some neat information on how he is analyzing us for his scientific journals, and eventual book.
  • Pony Hospital/Daring Do TF2 Map


    I'm not too sure how balanced something like this would be, but you gotta give them some credit for making pretty damn accurate rendition of Ponyville Hospital and Daring Do's temple with just a few clips from the show. 

    I've been playing a lot of TF2 lately, are there any servers out there that rotate these?  I can only do so much 2fort!

    Anyway, check this out after the break!

  • Equestrian Inquirer Special Announcement / Arnold Schwarzenegger Spotlights Braeburn


    We have two series this time around with smaller updates than normal! First off is the Equestrian Inquirer's new special announcement, of ridiculousness, as always.

    And following that is the governator's stance on everyone's favorite cowpony (Sorry Applejack!).

    Check them out after the break.


  • Daring Do Sidescroller



    I think Seth's love for Daring Do is rubbing off on me.

    Tonight I have for you a sidescrolling game featuring Rainbow Dash's favorite heroine, and lemme tell you, it is really pretty. This first version may only be a small sample level for framerate testing purposes, but the visuals are far and above what we usually see from these games. Check it out below!
