  • Blast from the Past #18 - Fanfic Edition

    Wow, it has been a couple months hasn't it? Hopefully now that school is over I can get back to making these things since they are actually quite fun to do! Since it has been even longer since our last fanfic edition of the Blast posts and now that more people have time to read as summer is just around the corner how about we dust off some old stories?

    If you have a suggestion for future Blast from the Past editions, whether it be music, comics, videos, ect please send them to my email at calpain@equestriadaily.com. I'll make sure to take a look at them when I can and see if I can file them for later!

  • Story: Treating Her Right


    Author: The Rated Ponystar
    Description: Applejack has always had a secret dream, one that some ponies would find strange for the tomboyish farmer. She's always wanted somepony to treat her to a special romantic night, while being treated like a real lady. Turns out all she had to do was have a certain rainbow-maned pegasus catch her in a dress. Such an awkward moment will lead them to a night neither will ever forget.

  • iPad App Review: "A Canterlot Wedding"

    Courtesy of Whatshisgame, we've been informed that the official A Canterlot Wedding iPad app by Egmont from some months ago has today been re-released in two versions: an English-only version, which isn’t available in the US, and an English/Polish version, which is available in the US and is the one that I grabbed and flipped through. The app is presented in Polish, but there's a switch on the main menu screen to make it English.

    Much like the Ruckus storybook apps we reviewed a while ago, this is a simple storybook app with a (Polish-accented) voiceover and episode footage. You flip through scenes from A Canterlot Wedding and have the story told you, minus that whole deal with Chrysalis. I guess she was too dark for a children's app.

  • Drawfriend Stuff #800

    800 of these posts? That's almost scary. If we average out the entire lot of them to around 40 per, thats a whopping 32000 images.  With how strict we are here on EQD in Drawfriend posts, that is pretty staggering. 

    Onward to art, and another 200 of these things so we can hit 1000!  Thanks for sticking around everyone!

  • Story: Edited By

    [Slice of Life] Rejoice, you True Believers of the "Slice of Life" tag! Here is a small, happy work in which a simple moment between Spike and Twilight registers as a successful execution of what the tag can accomplish. - Pre-Reader #13

    Author: TheBandBrony
    Description: Infuriated by a seemingly unwritable essay, Twilight Sparkle turns to bashing her head against a table to ease the feeling of literary inadequacy. Luckily, Spike is there to offer some more practical advice on finishing her essay--and why she should write it in the first place.

    Dedicated to all editors: the grandest fools of all.

  • Simple PMV Compilation #25

  • Brony Thank You Fund Gains Tax-Exempt Public Charity Status

    What started off as a simple project to hop on The Hub for a commercial shoutout to the show staff has moved on to a full blown tax-exempt charity!  What does that mean? In layman's terms, you can now count your donations to their multiple causes as tax deductible. This is also retro-active to quite a bit of last year.   I'll let them iron out the details though, head on over to their news post for the full jist of it all.

    Or if you are lazy, they sent some copy pastable highlights over, since EQD loves copy pastable highlights: 
    • - IRS grants The Brony Thank You Fund 501(c)(3) public charity status.
    • - All donations made since May 8th of 2012 are now tax-deductible
    • - The Fund becomes the one and only federally recognized Brony charity, and eligible to register to fundraise in all 50 states.
    • - On Monday, the Fund will announce a celebration donation give-away with chances to win a heavily autographed poster, one of two dozen MLP trading card mats, or even Sibsy's drawing of your OC!
     Ponies truly are taking over the world. 
  • Spotlight Music: Solstice / My Equestria / Gypsy Bard ( DJ Pon-3's Remix )

    We start this one off with a new Drums and Bass song with accompanying vocals from a singer I haven't heard of going by the name of Sidonie.  I wouldn't mind hearing more from this duo personally!

    Slot #2 is taken up by an Equestrian ballad from yet another newer musician going by the name of Amadhia. I for one welcome this new armada of female vocalists!

    And in the final slot, we have a remix of Gypsy Bard, with a mix of funk and intense electro beats to build it up. Find all three below the break!

    1.) Evening Star - Solstice (ft. Sidonie Bishop)
    2.) My Equestria
    3.) Gypsy Bard ( DJ Pon-3's Remix )
