• [My Little Theories] Can Rarity Defend Herself?



    I think it's time we made up for the fact that Rarity didn't get an episode this season and focus the spotlight on her for just a moment. Continuing our coverage of more in-depth analysis of the show, we have a segment here from TheoryBrony titled Can Rarity Defend Herself? It goes into evidence presented in the show, including comparisons to the others and a discussion of her character traits, to answer this question.

    You can find the video below the break.

  • Music of the Day #101


    These posts are magic.  We have nine songs in this one.  Head on down below the break to check them all out!

    And on another note, there was a bit of a derp in the submit box.  If you sent a song in either yesterday or the day before (not today), and didn't get a rejection message, you may have been meant to hit this Music of the Day post up.  Feel free to resubmit and I'll add it if it's missing!  Include genre and youtube link as usual.

  • Discussion: What's Your Butt Symbol?!


    According to this completely random page on the internet that cites something else completely random, people change their careers five to seven times in their lifetime.  It's no secret that finding a livelihood that is both interesting and rewarding is extremely challenging.  I wouldn't doubt that a lot of you don't exactly enjoy your current place of employment.  At the same time though, I'm sure a bunch of you found your calling and enjoy every second of it.  Here on the EQD staff, we have a guy going for his doctorate in Neuroscience, and he seems to love it.

    So assuming you could get into your ideal field, what would your cutie mark be?  Have you always wanted to be an astronaut, but lack the time get the required degrees and experience for it? Or maybe you like something a bit more down to earth like bridge construction?

    Drop it in the comments below.

    Thnaks to Equinenoxx for the topic.
  • Comic: Love Gone Wrong / One Special Talent

  • Ponies Invade - Teen Titans Go!


    It looks like the premiere of the new Teen Titans series dropped a bit of pony off, with the entire episode revolving around one of the characters (Raven, seen above) trying to get everyone out of the house so she could watch a show called "Pretty Pretty Pegasus".   What a way to premiere!

    Thanks to Skullivan for the image and everyone else for the heads up!  I'm not sure if we will see this one appear on Youtube, since Cartoon Network tends to be pretty strict about that stuff, but keep an eye out for it anyway.

  • Drawfriend Stuff #783


    This image makes me want to play Wind Waker for some reason.  Every time I do that though, I stop after the 3rd dungeon.

    Anyway, have some art!   It's a shorter one today, but still a good one!
