Well guys, tonight is the last night with me as your 'Supreme Overlord' here on EqD. It was fun and I hope you all enjoyed yourselves this weekend, whether you were at Unicon or hanging out on the site with me. I'm sure I'll see you all again tomorrow night for another Roundup. And hey, nothing burned down!
As is the norm for iTunes and it's broken episodes, we finally have a fix for Games Ponies Play. If you have it downloaded with that awful sound quality, delete it and re-download the new and improved version. Hopefully season four won't run into the same issues!
Got some short and simple animations for you all this evening. Some silly alicorn madness, a short animated bit to the tune of One Trick Pony and finishing off with some very random Derpy. Take a look at them all after the break.
Some big news out of New York tonight as Big Apple Ponycon announces the Director of MLP:FiM, Jayson Thiessen! It has been quite awhile since Jayson has attended a pony convention and it's great to see him back again at this years Big Apple Ponycon. For the full press release and details take a look after the break.
While viewing the above picture I could not help but be hit with a wave of nostalgia. I can't believe that it has been roughly two years now since I followed a link on one of my favorite forums and watched ponies for the first time. Who would have known at the time where all of that would eventually lead.
Art time! Check it all out after the break.

What you see here is pretty much an accurate representation of how JDL's morning panel went yesterday. The moment he took the stage, he opened the floor to questions -- I think I heard the thumping of bodies against the back wall lining up to ask him things.
Before we begin our recap, however -- and I'm betting on at LEAST a couple of attendees reading this writeup before going to today's panel -- I'd like to stress one important thing. John hasn't had time to keep up with the show as of late due to some very important personal projects of his, which I shall disclose below. If you are planning on asking him a question at the panel, keep this in mind before you ask him about how Discord would corrupt some given background pony or something. Ask these questions, and he'll be honest with you.
Nevertheless, this panel was full of delightful insights on his experiences with the show, the fandom, and his own life, and I encourage everyone to hit the break and see what our resident lord of chaos had to say about the show, the fandom, and the documentary.
Remember that "I Just Can't Wait to Have Wings" song from the other day? Well, it looks like those shoutouts for animation in the comments have been at least partially answered. Someone has created an animatic for the entire thing. Hopefully they keep on going with it!
It's 3am here in Vegas, which means it's the perfect time to keep everyone awake with a last minute music submission. Sim Gretina, The Living Tombstone, and Eilemonty all decided to collab on this one, and its awesome.
And now wings are even more awesome.
Find it below, or here, because embeds keep derpin on my cell internet.
Double Rainboom has launched an official trailer, and a release date to go along with it. On the 30th of March we will finally get to check all 25 minutes of it out!
Also, while Double Rainboom may technically be premiering its first half at Momocon
in Atlanta, that’s not the only place it’ll be that weekend. Three hours after
its showing in Georgia, part of the team will be at the Cloudsdale Congress in
DC to show the same footage for a more pony-centric audience. So if you were
planning a last minute trip to see the first fan-made episode, you now have
options! Cloudsdale will have Emily Koch, voice of Rainbow Dash, James Lyons,
special effects animator, Rob Nigro, special effects animator, Amy Galletta,
storyboard artist, and Nick Iaconis, character animator. While Zachary Rich,
director, and Cara Murray, assistant director, will be at Momocon. You can
register for Cloudsdale Congress here and for Momocon here.
We’re excited to bring you the most-anticipated fan animation at two cons
simultaneously, and we hope that everyone enjoys the results of our hard work
Head on down past the break to find it, and celebrate in the comments!
