Julius Perdana over at Paper-Replica has created this amazing looking Sugar Cube Corner 3d Model, and to top it off, there is a template on the page you can grab to build your very own paper rendition of it!
Head on over here for a whole bunch of images showing off different aspects and views of it.
It's no secret that Friendship is Magic has a gigantic galaxy sized hurdle in place that turns people off just on the "My Little Pony" alone. We all probably have at least a few friends that absolutely refuse to give the show a shot.
I'm actually going to drop a real life example that literally happened just the other day. While playing Guild Wars 2 with one of my old internet buddies from my WoW/EQ days, I had the opportunity to show off some pony after months of absolute refusal. His stance is what most people that have never seen it share - it's a cartoon for pre-teen girls about colorful horses who's greatest fear in life is getting their mane cut and chasing butterflies. What better way to dispel that than Lesson Zero, right? Clearly sonic rainbow nukes and Fluttershy going Jackie Chan on a grizzly bear would completely obliterate those perceptions! I had only a few minutes, so in a rush, I grabbed the nearest video with said nukes and tossed it his way.... without watching the end. Needless to say after a few minutes of laughing, it went the complete opposite direction.
So here is the discussion post for all of you! Your friend who has never even glanced at the show has given you the same opportunity to show him/her what it's got. What do you toss their way?
And as a bonus: What specifically converted you? I know a bunch of people ended up giving it a shot after running into a PMV.
Toss your stuff in the comments below!
As many of you are probably aware, including those that have any sort of affinity to the Harvest Moon series, Budding Friendships is off there on the horizon. And similar to the game it's borrowing it's design off of, it has some pretty great backtracks to grow your carrots and lettuce to!
They recently released their game OST as a bit of a teaser to let you all know it's still in progress. Check the announcement video out after the break, and the music here!
I wonder why changelings have such a hard time in Equestria? I bet people in our world would be all over an obsessive love sprite that can change shape at will, assuming they don't do that mind control voodoo. These guys are just approaching it the wrong way with the sneaky hostile takeover stuff!
Have some music! We have two tracks in the first and third slots with a whole bunch of autotune and electronicyness, and some rap in the middle to break it up some!
1.) Artattack and Metajoker - Return (Video by MyLittleVisuals)
2.) Where Are We Now
3.) Blaze - The Diamond In Her Soul
I don't really do that jewelry thing, but if I did, I'd do this jewelry thing. ChaoticBrony over on Deviant Art has been busting out some really cool stuff for a while now. This one in particular is hand crafted with sterling silver wire and quartz, with plans for going up for auction at the Canterlot Gardens Charity Auction.
Anyway, head on down past the break to check out the rest of his stuff!
Thank goodness Rainbow Dash is loyal to her friends otherwise the show would have ended after episode 2. Still, she sure does look awesome in a Shadowbolts outfit!
Customs coming at you after the break!
:Commission: Element of Disloyalty
We have a bit of late stuff coming out of Everfree Northwest, namely the production staff interviews Equestria Inquirer pulled off. Head on down past the break to check them out! I can say from personal experience, the entire team is awesome.
Yep, it's official. Ponies are everywhere. I can't go 10 links on the internet without running into something with a Rainbow Dash cutie mark or Fluttershy meme.
Anyway, check out that dude with the badass beard above in the video below talking about Metal Gear Solid.
Description: A short trip to Canterlot with Rainbow Dash and Applejack is the perfect opportunity for Twilight to test out her new long-distance Teleportation spell. But a nasty cold dashes the hopes of a quick trip, and makes the spell disappear in smoke: instead of arriving in Canterlot, the three find themselves in the nearby Everfree Forest, and discover that their location is not the only thing that went wrong.Those Blue Wings (New Part 15)
While Rainbow has exchanged her wings and tail for a straw blond frond, Applejack has acquired a rainbow tail as well as a pair of strong, blue wings.While Twilight attempts to find a spell to return the body parts to their rightful owners, the others must attempt to deal with this situation... and with their changing feelingss

You are bubbles, and bubbles just happen to be the equivalent of a cat vs a laserpen for Derpy. Guide her through the creepy Everfree Forest, dodging timberwolves, sticker buches, and traversing fallen logs.
It can actually get pretty challenging later on! If you are curious about the health system, the mouse cursor actually shows it with the number of bubbles.
Anyway, check the game out here!
Albums: Warfilly / Hell Muffins / Nocturne of the Firmaments / The Science of Friendship / Epic Final Bosses / Let's Buck Sh** Up
More albums? More albums. We have something for everyone this time around!
I think we might set a required number of songs for these in the future! What do you guys think of eight per? And for future posts, please include a genre with your album email, as well as the description!
Head on down past the break and click the images to shop around.

2.) Koroshi-Ya - Great and Powerful
3.) The Adventurer (ft. BassBeastJD)
It was rather close, but it looks like Braeburn wins header tonight! Poor guy is a little under appreciated, but at least Apple Bloom seems to appreciate him just fine!
Time for news guys! Check it out after the break and also make sure to suggest tomorrow's header!
Everypony needs some time to charge up their batteries after a hard day's work or in Derpy's case after a quick muffin break. If I could put lithium ion batteries in all my food maybe my fridge wouldn't be so empty... Anyhow, hello again everyone! Calpain here one last time as we begin to bring the Training Grounds to a close. Tonight we've got an electrifying 320 charging and moving ponies for your viewing pleasure! This brings our grand total to an astonishing 15591 pony images. That is a heck of a lot of pony!

Today marks a special day in the Artist Training Grounds, a day where we begin to wrap up another year of training, hard work, perseverance, and most importantly, fun. You've all come such a long way and it has been a pleasure to watch you grow over the past month! The amount of effort and dedication you all have exhibited is admirable and you all deserve a well earned pat on the back and a good rest. In honor of all your hard work today's theme is Draw a Pony Celebrating / Draw a Pony Graduating.
