Yet another one of those city-wide newspapers has published up an article on the pony craze. It once again focuses on the gender stereotypes of colorful rainbow ponies being popular in a largely male demographic. There are shoutouts to various charity projects and merchandise takeovers buried throughout. Go read it if you want the complete picture1
I don't know how we missed this one considering our love for all things incredibly stupid here on EQD. We are only human though! Even Celestia makes mistakes right?
Have some Salsa Rarity after the break. She actually looks good in a mustache!

Our European friends across the pond have a new announcement for you all as GalaCon continues to ramp up the hype as they prepare for their next convention! Nabbing the illustrious Michael Pan, who plays as German Discord, the convention promises to be awesome! Check out the full press release after the break for further details.
Six hundred and seventy-five hours went into creating this massive Luna sculpture. At a height of three feet and four inches, I can see why. I can only imagine how difficult it would be to even get something of this size to stand without collapsing. That's a TON of clay, even if it is hollow. It's too bad it can't be duplicated! I know I'd take a few to adorn my future pony throne room.
It still needs to be fired, but out of fear of it not surviving the process, he wanted to show it off before something might happen to it. Right now it's a complete mystery. Lets all hope it does make it through! I want to see this thing completed and decked out!
Head on over to Bigponymac's Deviant Art page for more images, and be sure to tell him how much of a badass he is for pulling it off.
Comic: Bank Robbery / Scoots and Dash / Princess of the Fright / As Sweet / How Trixie Rolls / Trixie's Competition / Headless
Let the comic flood begin! We have everything from new episode stuff, to Magic Duel stuff this time around. Click for full as always!
As was mentioned a few times now, The Hub's Naught or Nice event is happening throughout the month. You know the drill! Head on over to this page to begin the voting. The polls close on the 16th of December, but each day everyone can vote up to 10 times total. Now get to it!
It's actually kind of neat to see how much it has evolved since it's beginning two years ago. If you were around back then, you know how simple it used to be!
Another weekend means another Livestream Saturday is heading your way folks! Last week's turnout was wonderful and this week promises to hold even more fun as we expand our list of artists participating today.
For those late to the party, Livestream Saturdays are a chance for artists to submit their Livestream channels in the hope to make more friends, share techniques, and of course just to have fun! As for those who can submit, we are expanding who can submit to anyone who happens to be doing anything pony related whether it be sculpting, PMV editing, music, ect. If it's pony and you'd like to share, drop me a line with your livestream, gallery, and type of work you'll be doing during the next Livestream Saturdays post. Remember, every Livestream Saturday starts at 4pm EST / 1pm PST so keep that in mind when planning to submit your stream.
Also, to spice up the posts a little, livestreamers are welcome to submit to me a banner I can center their information under if they would like! Should hopefully make things a little more exciting. Anything mentioned above can be sent to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Enough babbling! Check after the break for a list of artists livestreaming today.

The votes are in! The top 10 videos of November have been released. Can you handle the crossovers? Because that seems to be the trend this time around. Everything from TF2 to Dota 2 wound up in this one.
Head on down past the break for all of them!
It looks like that unfortunate US Trademark law has reared it's ugly head once again. MLP: online was hit with a request to take down their game a few weeks ago after releasing their first episode, and unfortunately had to comply.
As noted in their release, this isn't technically Hasbro's fault. Due to specific requirements when dealing with their trademark, they are forced to take down things that violate it, or they lose it. I do wonder how that pertains to other games though, or what causes a legal team to "notice" something. There are quite a few of them out there, many of which are heavily advertised on the ponynets.
Have the exact announcement released today after the break, or hit it up here!
Have a comic to start the day off with! It's a little spoilery, but not completely episode oriented. It is however, amazing. But Pixelkitties episode comics are always amazing. Click for full!
And as an added bonus, have another slightly more spoilery comic below from HatsEnsemble, who has an amazing name.
It's an amazing day.
