Took long enough! I'm already bored of my Elin mod anyway.
This is actually just a teaser of a mod in progress. The animations still need some work, as explained in the video description.
Still, it's pretty awesome to see Twilight Sparkle setting things on fire with her horn!
I have never used a GPS outside of my phone, but suddenly I want to give TomTom a shot. Qcom on Youtube has modded his personal device with various pony voices, and in this little demo video he shows off Fluttershy. Nothing is more relaxing than being guided by the best pony on the second weekend of each month (And Wednesdays, but don't tell Cereal. He thinks that is Rarity day lol).
Anyway, check it out after the break!
It seems like Colbert did a bit of research on is, and it didn't end well! His new shoutout:
"I want to very specifically not give a shout out to my Bronies tonight. I feel like I have been sucked into a dark corner of humanity, and am crawling my way back to the light."Who linked him to the clop?! This is someone's fault!
Seriously though, It's pretty funny to see so many episode intros hit by the pony. Check it out after the break.
Remember the 90's? Remember that Ska thing that popped up for a few years then seemingly died off? Well, someone has finally brought it to pony, and I couldn't be happier.
It's time to throw Blues, Reggae, and Jazz into a mixing bowl with a bit of upbeat Friendship is Magic to bind it all together! Check it out after the break!
(This needs a new album cover, have some Daring Do and Trixie as filler)
Description: It's just like any other party in Canterlot, except this time Frederic is a guest rather than a member of the ensemble.
With the evening to himself it may finally be his chance to confess his true feelings to the mare he has long held feelings for but if he can't work up the nerve he may miss out forever.
I'll Sweep You off Your Hooves

Time for the second Livestream Night! The last one was as successful as I could have hoped- one artist reported back to me that he had a concurrent 93 total viewers. He was quite happy! Let's make these guys just as happy, eh?
Toronto Star recently popped an article out about general gender stereotypes and the different styles of marketing companies use. As is the norm for anything involving pink and frilly merch these days, Friendship is Magic is brought up as an example of something that both genders can get into. While we haven't seen a huge push from Hasbro for the male demographic (and it's hard to blame them considering the history of My Little Pony), there are still male fans out there outside of our 18-30 demographic.
You can find this article here!
And on to the discussion. Have any of your nephews/sons/third cousins/little brothers been drawn in by the pony without realizing it's technical true demographic? I think a lot of people find it fascinating to see how exactly actual kids react to FiM without pressure from outside sources or peers.
Discuss it in the comments!
Apparently, official My Little Pony band-aids were spotted in a Uniprix in Quebec! I don't know about you, but these things worked wonders for me. That one time when I had that broken leg and that nasty case of Ebola, I just slapped a Twilight Sparkle bandage on there and felt worlds better. I also think it may have optimized my circulatory system and given me the ability to heal people with my hands. More after the break.
Thanks to Chris for the images!

More bronyville for all you bronyville lovers!
Dear Princess Celestia,
One year has been a very long time. And while we’re going to be rocking this anniversary for all it is worth I do want to thank all of our awesome fans who make all of this so totally worthwhile. Our guest this week? Why, that would be Sherilyn Connelly from SFWeekly! An actual journalist AND fan of the show? She does these awesome My Little Pony Episode writeups! And she made us super jealous by being one of the lucky few with a Season Finale Press kit! So yes, much fun is had as we talk to derp or not to derp, looking back and forward on MLP seasons, and my luxurious Mustache!
I know a bunch of you just love fanfiction, and you also just love to ship ponies with each other. We have posted these in the past, but in a few months the amount of romantic situations in the ponyverse tends to double from it's previous rendition, so it's time for an update!
Ciscoql over on Deviant Art has compiled a really neat chart showing off the various pairs. It's much more complex that what we have previously had in the past, though a bit more difficult to judge exact amounts. This takes all the shipping and romance stories across EQD and Fimfic into account. Check it out above!
Instrumental Music: Jazz Invades Equestria / Trixie's Lament / Sunset / Mistress of Mystique / Party of One and a Half
Lots of really awesome instrumentals all came in today! It's crazy how much music this fandom pumps out. Check them all out below, with genres in the parentheses!
1.) General Mumble - Jazz Invades Equestria (Jazzy)
2.) Trixie's Lament - Original MLP Music by MandoPony/Leeches/Joanna Blackhart (Piano)
3.) Sunset - Blaze (Trance/Dubstep)
4.) Mistress of Mystique (Electronic/Dance/Tribal)
5.) Party of One and a Half (Piano)
We have three new merch items this time around! The first one is actually pretty huge. Costco now carries a gigantic pony coloring book filled with 150 stickers and 35 pages of ponies to color and play with. At $7.50, its not a bad buy for the size! These have been sent to us from both Tuscon, AZ and Delaware, so it's safe to assume they can be found on both the east and west US coast. Find images of that above, and more after the break from Ciara and Shelby!
We also had a Celestia baseball cap sent in from Esoru in Montreal Canada. This particular one was found at a store called Winners near Atwater. He didn't give a price, but Celestia is WHITE. Clearly this needs to be bought out immediatly.
And finally, a small Pinkie Pie party book filled with your classic pony merch vectors was found in a dollar bin at Target. Collectors might like to pick one up! Thanks to MyBoyJ for the image.
And as a reminder, a few of the internal images of the giant book found above can be seen after the break, including Luna!
We posted King Sparta's Rainbow Road remix a while back, and since then he has greatly improved overall. He has also released a ton of new crossovers for all of you to nostalgia out over. What's better than ponies and the good old cartridge console days? Not much. (Aside from ponies and Baldurs Gate, but I'm biased)
Have some stuff in link form, there are too many to embed.

A pop-culture blog called Pop Candy (part of USA Today) has posted up an exclusive screencap they've received from the upcoming Royal Wedding episode. I think we can all clearly see that the most important detail we can glean from this picture is that Rainbow Dash is totally wearing flowers in her mane, and is therefore dressing in style. And the two ponies making out, I guess.
After last night's incident PK is currently in maintenance as we fix the chip implanted in him. Don't worry, he'll be back to you all soon with a few upgrades to boot! Now if only I can figure out how to install this coffee maker attachment...
While I upgrade PK, have some news!
