• Official Card Binder Prototype and the Giant Holographic Sheet

    Apparently this binder that was on display at Bronycon is actually the prototype of a folder they are planning on releasing for all you card collectors out there.   I wouldn't call it the finalized art, but I would be completely OK with this.  Also Derpy.

    I've been told to expect it for order some time this summer by one of the writers, but don't quote me on that. 

    And on the left is the sheet they had up at Bronycon for the charity auction.  That is a ton of pony right there.

  • Brony Thank You Fund: Updates and News

    I never get tired of seeing this image, because it always means something cool is about to go down. In this case we've got a bit of a wrapup from Bronycon, during which the Thank You Fund was able to raise $5,641. This means they'll be cutting Toys for Tots a six thousand dollar check this week, which I think you'll agree is exciting stuff.

    Of course, The Brony Thank You Fund is about more than just its charity work (admirable though it is). They are moving ever closer to completing the first-ever fan filmed, fan funded commercial to air on The Hub and thank the Friendship is Magic series creators and employees who bring us pony year in and year out. This past weekend, they unveiled their selections for the faces to appear on the commercial. That is to say, our spokespeople have been chosen.

    Look at the list. If you took a supercomputer and dedicated it to selecting the perfect assortment of people to put the fandom's best foot forward, it would burn itself out trying to outdo this group. On the off chance you still had any lingering concerns about what this was going to look like, check it out and be assuaged.

    There will be more news coming later in the week, but for now check out this article on the Daily Dot about the Brony Thank You Project. It's a pretty neat read!
  • People That Need Followers: Lee Tockar / Peter New Edition

    I have no clue what is going on in this image
    See this number:

    This is uncalled for in ponydom.  Lee Tockar needs followers, and you have Twitter accounts!  Snips and Snails may have ruined Trixie's life, but I hear she got a respectable job holding her hoof in the air and wearing odd purple glasses because of it. 

    We also have Peter New 

    Why don't you autosmooth this time arrow? I cant draw straight lines.
    Coming in at 1,133.  Big Mac needs love guys.  His lines are few, but his worth ethic and loyalty are unmatched! Eeyup. 

    And while you are at it, go follow Meghan McCarthy.  You guys do realize she is the lead writer right? And the one that makes ponies lose their minds professionally?  She even made twitter cards with her amazing oc on it.

    The best oc pony. 

    Actually, Sibsy's comes close.  Follow her too! Have we ever even plugged her? I swear we did, but google isn't giving me anything.  Well, you know what to do!
  • Sound is Magic: A look into the sound design of "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic"

    Fluttershy after the very first sentence.
    Bronycon sort of dominated the news circuit for the last few days, but over at Anime Expo, a whopping 500 bronies met up and did all sorts of stuff.  Victor Frost here ran a panel during the festivities that essentially breaks down the way sounds are used within the show.  His description says it way better than I can:
    This lecture-style panel aims to educate fans of G4 My Little Pony on
    the different and creative uses of sound and sound design techniques
    as well as some of their historical roots in western entertainment
    (animation and film alike) with an emphasis on how they enhance the
    narrative of the show as well as the fidelity of an inherently
    non-real world.
    Take that, add a bunch of random swear words (It even starts with one) and one of the more entertaining panelists out there, and you got yourself some fun education! Check it out after the break.

  • Lauren Faust Interview on Bitch Media

    Yeah, I was a bit confused at the title at first too! It's all positive though.  Lauren posted this interview up on her Twitter account.  It is, as always, inspirational.  She really knows how to make ponydom feel good!

    Head on over here to check it out!

  • Welovefine 25% Off Sale on All Pony Shirts Tomorrow

    You may or may not have seen a million people running around with Welovefine shirts in those Bronycon Livestreams. One of our friends from Welovefine sent us a heads up on a deal they are running for the 4th of July to get 25% off all the Friendship is Magic shirts.   This will only be available from 12:00 PM to 6 PM Pacific time (3PM through 9PM Eastern Time) tomorrow, and they will not be advertising it on their website.  I'd recommend finding the shirts you want now so you will have time tomorrow.  Each registered Welovefine account can use it only once, So sign up for more than one account if you want to use it multiple times!

    You can still get the Derpy/Luna/Fluttershy while using the code, so it might be a good excuse to go for one of the three.

    I'll toss a reminder out at 12:00 PM tomorrow.  You can find all eligible shirts here!

    MFW my favorite character ever is a mare

    You may remember a sketch comedy show for BIG KIDS on Nickelodeon back in the day going by the name of "All That". As is the norm for this fandom, it has been ponified, and fully animated at that. Check it out after the break!

  • Arnold Schwarzenegger Spotlights: Diamond Tiara, Silver Spoon, and Gilda

    It looks like the Governator is in a villainous mood today.  Three of our beloved antagonists have joined the Pony Spotlight series, or two if you want to count it based on number of videos!

  • Madman DVD Volume 4 Has Popped Up!

    It looks like the 4th volume of the Friendship is Magic Australian box set has finally popped up for pre-order.  The release date is listing October 3rd, so we have a bit of time before it officially releases.

    Sadly all the pages aside from "add to cart" 404.  I guess we have to wait until it completely updates!

    And just a heads up, this is actually region 4 only.  If your DVD player doesn't support Region 4... import an Australian one!  You know it's worth it!

    Check the main page out here.

    Thanks to Dang0alot for the heads up!
