The abridged series Camaraderie is Supernatural has released their 3rd episode over on Youtube. They grabbed a pretty massive set of talent for it too! Head on down past the break to check it out!
It's not quite yet Halloween, which means it's time to start thinking about the winter holiday season. Smart alecky quips aside, a group of bronies have taken it upon themselves to put us all in the holiday spirit by setting up a very unique sort of charity for now seven-years-old Kiki Havivy, the little girl fighting a potentially lethal brain tumor whom Tara Strong has been rallying us around for quite a few months now.
What makes this project unique is that it's not seeking funding, but rather a much needed boost of morale in the form of stories. That's right, it's time to put our collective fanfiction chops to work for the forces of good! Check on down below the page break for the official press release, an informational video, and as a special bonus, a video that got released a few days prior of little Kiki singing, circa age 3. If that doesn't motivate you, I'm not sure what will.
A new series of shorts going by the name of "Gamer Derps" is in progress, with some of the big names behind Epic Wub Time, Picture Perfect Pony, and VGPonies. If you have ever had an urge to toss ponies into various video game worlds, and have any love of motion comics at all, this might be the set to check out!
Links to their first 3 episodes can be found below!

[Adventure][Slice of Life] "An excellent use of language and storytelling flair wrapped around a narrative brimming with promise - this is a story worth reading." - Pre-reader [derp]
Description: When Derpy Hooves's failures destroy what little is left of her life, it falls to the Elements of Harmony (and Spike) to get the wall-eyed pony back on track to a happy future. What they didn't count on is that Ponyville's unluckiest mailmare might have a lot more to offer than anypony realized, including a strange pendant that acts as a gateway to the annals of Equestria's Lost History. Contained within are tales from before the time of Celestia and Discord, lessons of friendship and heroism long forgotten, and dark secrets better left unlearned.Lost Legacies (New Part 23!)

The Chart Toppers Authoring group has a few more pony songs in the works for Rock Band 3. Included this time around are the following:
Eurobeat Brony ft. Odyssey - "Discord (EuroChaos Mix)"
Dasha and The Living Tombstone - "Good Girl"
Eurobeat Brony ft. Odyssey - "Luna (NIGHTMARE MODE)"
Jeff Burgess - Trixie
None of them have specific dates yet, and will be separate DLC purchases. Hopefully all you Rockband players out there see them soon though!
And head on down past the break for their announcement video!
It almost seems like some kind of media explosion is going on lately. We just can't avoid it!
Norwegian talk show "Sent med Simen Sund" has done a full section on the pony phenomenon. The video on Youtube has been subtitled for those of us that can't understand it!

I was made aware of the supposed existence of a pony programming language (FiM-based, obviously) by a friend of mine in lecture one morning. He said he found it on reddit, but after many, many Google searches I was only able to find a barren, empty Google Code repository with no details or implementations. I was deeply disappointed for a few minutes before I realized I could write the damn thing myself. It probably wouldn't be good, complete, or usable in the sense that anyone could write an interpreter for it (dear past self: it isn't good at all), but I felt like validating my in-progress degree to some extent. I am also a fan of jokes that go on for far too long.
And so, ladies and gentlecolts, I present to you the rough syntax of what I'm dubbing FiM++.
EDIT: Here is a sample implementation of the 99 Bottles of Beer algorithm by DeftCrow using my syntax. He includes a more formal syntax in the description.
You can also check the comments section for more discussion on where this spec is workable and where it is lacking (which I may fix later) and some more example programs like Hello World.
The guys over at mane6 have compiled a huge amount of information for those of you that couldn't visit them at CG. Everything from their panel video, posters, and even a bit of Cathy Weseluck joining in on the pony battle action can be found on their website!
So, this awesome song came out two days ago, and for the first time ever, no one submit it! You guys are slackin lately! Black Gryphon and Baasik might be topping this months best music charts with this one.

I guess it was inevitable wasn't it? We can't have a fandom without a real life Gangnam Style. This one actually pulls off footage from around the world for it too! Isn't technology wonderful?

The "bronies" that were on Jerry Springer the other day have tossed a short response up on Youtube. They are pretty adamant that they weren't payed actors, but Rainbow Dash having a horn does point at their knowledge of the show being pretty low.
Anyway, check the video out below the break!
Sad news for all of us that can't wait to grab an issue of the upcoming MLP Comic. It looks like the release date has been bumped back to the 28th. Most sources still point at the earlier date, but Andy Price has confirmed the date on Twitter.
I guess we get to wait!
We have another mix of songs this time around. The first is an Applejack vocal rock song, followed by an instrumental symphonic piece, and finish with another one of those video game/pony crossovers from the guy that does way too many video game/pony crossovers. Find them all below!
1.) The Windigos - "Buck 'Em"
2.) Twilight Sparkle's Mind Palace - Symphony part 1/4
3.) Pinkamena's Haunted Hall (DKC2 and DK64 Cupcakes Orchestral)
