  • Gawker's Article on Friendship is Magic + Hasbro Response to Derpy's Takedown


    Over on Gawker, a new article has popped up about our little Derpy extravaganza.   They acutally did a pretty good job of digging through the piles of information that has been flooding every aspect of the fandom for the past few days, as well as bugging Cereal for an interview.  It is Gawker though, so expect some snide remarks buried in there. 

    One key point to focus on is the Hasbro PR rep's response:
    "The 'My Little Pony Friendship is Magic' series has always been about acceptance and inclusion, and the series strives to convey that through the playful antics of a diverse cast of characters," Hasbro spokeswoman Nicole Angello told us over email. "Some viewers felt that aspects of the episode 'The Last Roundup' did not stay true to the core message of friendship which is the heart and soul of the series. Hasbro Studios decided to make slight audio alterations to this single episode."
    So there you have it!

    You can find the entire article here!
  • New Welovefine Shirt: Octavia Approved


    Normally I would wait for Welovefine to get a few more shirts up before posting a compilation set, but fans of the music ponies will probably get a kick out of this one.  As most of you know, Hasbro has to approve the shirts put up on Welovefine before they can be sold, and it looks like Octavia managed to get through that little blockade without any problems... with her fanon name.

    So, welcome Octavia to the official canon herd I suppose!

    You can find the shirt here.

    They also have a new Nightmare Moon bag, check that out here!
  • Collegehumor's Brony Video


    Collegehumor recently did a Brony video.  The animation is actually pretty impressive, but it is definitely focusing on the negative.   You might want to avoid this if you are easily offended.  Everyone else might get a good laugh out of it!  Generally their parody videos are supposed to be ridiculous.

    Check it out here !

    And all bronies listen to skrillex.
  • Hub Commercial Air Time Reminder
