• Nightly Roundup #694

    I've gotten some demands for Doctor Whooves as a header for the Roundup and I'm happy to oblige! I really need to get back into Who myself now that I've gotten a taste of it.

    On to the news! Tons of it tonight, especially meetups. Looks like I wasn't the only one who wanted to go to the theater this weekend.

    Tonight's Stories

    MLP Fan Fiction Documentary Update

    Some news on the Fan Fiction documentary for you all tonight. Despite some setbacks they should be able to show you all some of what they have at Everfree!

    Good day fellow Equestrian Thespians,

    Piquo Pie here with a update to the MLP Fan fiction Documentary 2013. There were a few moderate setbacks so the documentary will be doing a final release Late July/Early August. However we will still have a early screening at Everfree NW where the audience can give feedback.

    In the mean time this fan fiction author interview with Jake the Army Guy, author of Under a Luminous Sky and Finding Your Place, has been released including his recounting of having a knife pulled on him for wearing a brony shirt. This interview follows the format for the extended interviews with each author from the documentary which will be released at a later date. Obviously some additional content and editing will be used in both the documentary and the extended interviews.

    If people like these interviews I will continue reaching out to speak with various authors. Please leave your opinion of the interview so that I may better future endeavors.

    Have a smileriffic day!

    Laugh, Ponyacci, Laugh Song Set to the Comic

    The Ponyacci song we posted earlier has been set along with the comic thanks to our own EqD commenter Jordan and another Youtuber! The first version is his while the other belongs to the other Youtuber.

    Rarity Joins Sonic Invasion

    Rarity has decided to try her hoof at Sonic Invasion, joining Twilight in her quest to stomp on robots and save innocent creatures. I'm surprised Fluttershy wasn't the first character considering all the animals that need to be saved. Check out the video below!

    Tonight's Successful Meetups

    Alberta Bronies See EqG

    Brony gathering for the new movie Equestria Girls Edmonton alberta June 23 2013

    Idaho EqG Meetup

    "Today was a momentous occasion! A large migration of bronies made 3 & 1/2 hour journey from the Boise area all the way out to Pocatello leaving early in the morning to catch the 12:00pm showing. Combined a healthy turnout from the ISU Brony Club who held a pre-movie tailgate, we had a total group size in the 40's, and we dominated the theater! All bronies were well behaved, with applause saved for the credits. After the theater let out, we met in the parking lot and then we went to a local park to shoot some hoops! The out-of-towners won! Equestria Girls, was a great movie, and we highly recommend it to almost any fan of the show. This was a day that we shall remember for quite some time to come!"

    Oakland County Bronies See EqG

    After several members met up at a local theater for an early showing of Equestria Girls, many of the Oakland County Bronies gathered at Firefighter's Park in Troy, Michigan for their Summer Sun Celebration on June 21st.
    Fun and games ensued, including frisbee throwing and catching, Euchre playing, and some radical dancing by a few. Old and young alike were represented at the park. Pony baked goods were brought which included Dr. Whooves, Cheerilee and Vinyl Scratch patterned frosted cupcakes, as well as some 'from-scratch' blueberry muffins! (Derpy was elated)
    Pizza and grilled hot dogs were the mane fare, as well as a constant stream of Pony music. The weather was warm and humid, but the Pegasi were faithful in keeping the group high and dry for the day!

    North Texas Bronies EqG Meetup

    It was worth the 2 hour drive to tyler texas, as most of the bronies travel from the dfw area, and couldn't put into words that the movie was AMAZINGLY AWESOME!!
