We have a few radio plays this time around for those that want to entertain their ears for a bit. Below the break you will find REHARMONIZED PONIES #7, as well as Filly Gamez episode #2. Now go listen away!

Lauren is at it again, this time with secret insider info on the origins of Derpy's cutie mark! Who would have ever guessed? I suppose that is one more mystery solved!
But what about our other pegasus pony friends? Well, Lauren has this to say about a certain Wonderbolts leader:
@alonsotejeda94 so spitfire's cutie mark it's because she ate to much chilli?? ---No. She farts methane. She's special.

You heard it right folks! Intrigue abounds with these startling revelations!
It's that time once again! We have four conventions with announcements. Check out the headlines below, and full releases after the break!
And to convention heads/organizers - I am setting up a section on EQD with a listing of conventions. For those that have not been emailed, please send the following by Friday if you want in on the initial post:

This section will be stickied to the side bar, but the initial listing will be on the front page here, so be sure to get your stuff in before Friday!
BronyCon Rears its Hooves to Rock Baltimore with BronyPalooza
CANterlot Con Press Release
Toywiz looks to have corrected their listing of the MLP Trading Cards set #2. October has been switched to the much earlier April, when the cards actually release. I guess EQD isn't the only site that gets hit with the Derpy bug every once in a while!
Find them here.
We have bad parenting, Firedash/Rainbowfire/whatever it is, negotiations, and a joke that requires some background knowledge from Lauren Faust's recent totally canon and unquestionably accurate tweet. Click for full!
Spotlight Instrumental Music: Through Equestria / Pony Concerto no. 2 (Magic Duel) / Pinkie Pie Style
It seems almost like Music of the Day has become the EQD instrumental music hotspot. It's the most common music style in this fandom after all! Every once in a while we get some excellent ones, and that's when a spotlight post happens.
First off is a nine minute long orchestral epic that sounds like it came right out of a high budget motion picture or something. It covers pretty much everything on the orchestral spectrum, from the low soothing to the upbeat and invigorating.
And in the second slot, we have a battle style piano concerto based on Magic Duel, complete with all the showboatyness you would expect from the Great and Powerful one. With five yes votes from the reviewers, it was pretty much unanimous.
And finally, for all you electronic fans out there, we have a bit of Pinkie Pie vocal splicing dance music. It was split down the middle on votes, but one of the more instrumentally inclined music reviewers dropped a "I don't think I've heard something labeled "brony music" that is this sophisticated in terms of harmony for a LONG WHILE.". I'll trust him on that one!
Find all three below.
1.) [Orchestral] Through Equestria
2.) Yourenigma - Pony Concerto no. 2 (Magic Duel)
3.) Pinkie Pie Style
A certain something has been teased in an upcoming episode that I cant mention up here due to spoilers, but I figured I'd drop it after the break and let you guys guess away at it. Just what line could it possibly be?! Decide below!
Welovefine has done something amazing. They've taken the coolness of ponies and paired them with the awesomeness of shiny blinky lights! There is now a full line of LED-enabled wearable pony merch. Check it out here! And check below the break for a quick preview.
|I have no clue what this is|

3.) [PMV] DashStep
Lyra seems to get most of the spotlight around here, what with her love of human objects and hand comics. Her partner in crime tends to go completely unnoticed though. Clearly this must be amended!
Introducing Bonified, an entire Tumblr dedicated to creating puns out of Bon Bon's name. Right now it is sitting at a full four pages, ranging everywhere from Bon-Omb's to full comics dedicated to corrupting what would normally be a relatively boring pony! It's glorious, and you should go look at it.
You can start at the beginning by visiting this link!
I still say Fluttershy needs a permanent hoodie, bunny ears, goggles, and socks. Rarity really does know how to make a pony look great, even if she did seem to randomly choose a bunch of items and mash them togeather.
Have some roundup!
