Right now the entire set of series one cards is available, along with autograph cards to go with them. It looks like bids are sitting around 400. 100% of proceeds will go straight to assisting people who were harmed by what happened at Unicon
Head on over here to check it out!
So, for whatever reason some of these songs didn't show up when I was in the hotel, which means we have a few from a week ago in here! I guess that's why the last post only had nine?
Anyway, have some music. We have 19 in this one.

I have to admit, I've had "What My Cutie Mark is Telling Me" stuck in my head for a week now. Pinkie Pie's being the best part.
A True True friend was cool too... I guess.
Onward to next poll: suggest a poll in comments!
Wow Germany, way to keep on trumping the rest of the world on pony merch. First blu-rays, now fully molded toys that stomp our McDonalds variants.

And as one of the Galacon heads points out, we can expect to see these on March 4th.
Whelp, it looks like the fandom has officially done it all. Not even Ski Free is able to escape ponification.
Brought to you by the same person that did the Dota 2, we have another excellent animation filled with all sorts of throwbacks to the old days of gaming.

Important: Efforts are still being made to coordinate the relief movement for the affected attendees. If you went to Las Pegasus Unicon and were unfairly charged or otherwise harmed by the events of the convention, please head here and fill out this form, so those coordinating efforts to help out can best figure out who and where to send help.
I'm sure you've been hearing by now that some very unfortunate issues left a lot of people who attended Las Pegasus Unicon in some financial pain. Many of these attendees were ordinary con goers without a lot of ability to deal with the sudden financial hit caused by the fallout from this incident, most especially those with comped rooms or who booked at the convention rate only to suddenly find themselves double charged by the hotel.
Fortunately, Friendship is Magic writer and all around awesome guy M. A. Larson is currently auctioning off several signed "I believe" buttons, to be handed out to wining bidders along with a page from one of the scripts he's written for the show. The money raised here will go to help supporting the non-musician, non-writer, non-special guest attendees least able to cope with the sudden and unexpected (and unfair) surge of expenses. You can find those auctions here:

The last panel of Saturday -- and the last one we covered this weekend -- drew quite the audience into the Riviera's largest panel room. And why not? Any time you gather Tara Strong, Tabitha St. Germain, Andrea Libman, Cathy Weseluck, and Nicole Oliver at the same table, wonderful, wonderful things will be sure to happen. Let's not waste any more time. Let's finish this writeup so Couch can get some sleep for the first night in a week.
That may look like a drawing, but it is supposedly a new mask available at Party City. It's a bit on the creepy side though!
