• Nightly Roundup #658

    Disregard suggestions, post Rainbow Dash.

    Surprise! I stole a roundup from Mr. Calpain this evening, but you should all go tell him how awesome he is at his Twitter. Now, on to the good stuff!

  • Music of the Day #110

    We have a whopping seventeen tracks tonight! Looking back, it has been a while since our last post.  I blame Twilight Sparkle.

    Head on down below the break for all of them!

    And once again - Please submit genres!

  • Simple PMV #26

    A wacky image for a simple PMV post! Head on down below the break for six of them this time around!

  • Mixed Media: The Way She Flies (Typography) / Pony Trek Into Darkness / Metal Pony Ac!d 2

    We start this post off with a new typography of The Way She Flies (which is an awesome song you should go listen to), followed Metal Gear Ac!d ponified, and finish with some Pony Trek. Check them all out below!

    1.) The Way She Flies [PMV][Kinetic Typography]
    2.) Pony Trek Into Darkness (Official Troller)
    3.) Metal Pony Ac!d 2: PSP Ponified Trailer

  • Poll Results: If Pony was Contracted for a Big Budget Game Release, What Type Would You Like to See?

    This was acutally a pretty difficult poll to choose categories for.  Game like Zelda, or Dark Souls for example can be considered one of many on the list.  Hopefully the "other" section covered that, and the rest of you found homes in the specific categories.

    I'm not too surprised a Skyrim style Western RPG won.  Exploring the entire continent/world of Equestria would be straight up awesome, especially while ditching the limits of an MMORPG to do it.

    Onward to the next poll: Suggest a poll! I ran out again. 
  • Spotlight Music: Pinkie's Brew (Synthetic Orchestral Remix) / Mares of Beyond - Pony Back it Up / Faded Stars

    We start this one off with a new orchestral Pinkie's Brew from Tsyolin.  We haven't had one of those in forever!

    The second slot is some of the best flow I've heard in this fandom yet.  Seriously, if you like rap, listen to it!

    And the third is a sadder chill track dedicated to Applejack, with vocals from Sylphstorm.

    Find all three below!

    1.) Tsyolin Imitates Blake Robinson - Pinkie's Brew by Griffin Lewis (Synthetic Orchestra Remix)
    2.) [FenPony] Mares of Beyond - Pony Back It Up
    3.) Risen and SlyphStorm - Faded Stars

  • Story: It Only Hurts When I'm Sober


    Author: Aquaman
    Description: After losing out on first chair cellist in the Manehattan Philharmonic Orchestra to her biggest rival, Octavia tries to console herself with a healthy bout of moping and a strong drink. One drink soon becomes several, though, and her evening of debauchery leads to a long night of frenzied, sordid passion with her best friend Vinyl Scratch.

    It isn't until she wakes up in the morning with Vinyl's legs wrapped around her that Octavia remembers two very important things: one, she's straight. And two, if the infamously strict conductor of the Philharmonic finds out how unrefined Octavia's social life has become, she could lose her one and only chance at the only dream she's ever had in her life.

    This could get a little bit complicated.

  • Japan Time! - Dragonshy

    Now that the Great and Powerful Trixie has had her big Japanese debut, we have a bit of a break before any new characters pop up. I figured I'd get these posts up for those of you following it anyhow though!

    Viewing starts at 3:30 PM PST / 7:30 AM Japan Time.

    This week we have Dragonshy and it's Fluttershy filled antics. Head on down below the break for the player, and hit the switch on the bottom left if you want the comments turned off.

  • Comic: Proper Drama Requires Lense Flare / The Stars Will Aid... / The Biggest Challenge

    Comics! We have a new Pixelkitties one covering various topics, followed by a bit of Luna jumping around, and some Anthro Twilight sparkle.  Click for full!

  • Drawfriend Stuff #802

    We haven't had a griffon header in a while.  Lets do that.

    I added an Equestria Girls piece in here, but I wanted to ask you all how you wanted us to handle these.  Separate drawfriend? Or just mix them in?  I've always went with a "it takes less than a second to skim an image if you don't like the subject matter" motto, so we do sneak humanized in here every once in a while even if quite a few of you send me angry emails.   I don't know how prevalent human ponies will be though once we get closer to the actual release though.   Discuss away!

  • EQG HD Trailer on MLP Facebook

    >Do followup post with awful quality images

    I'm so not fixing that post!

    If you wanted the trailer in higher quality, find it below the break. I also forgot Snips and Snails near the end there, so let it be known that I made a note of that somewhere on EQD!

  • Daniel Ingram and Steffan Andrews Up for Leo Awards

    We have some good news coming up from over at the Leo Awards.  Both Daniel Ingram and Seffan Andrews have been nominated for "Best Musical Score in an Animated Program or Series", focused specifically on Magical Mystery Cure.  That was definitely an above and beyond performance for the two, so I think congratulations are in order all around! (Seriously, go throw some props on Twitter)

    And in other news, Friendship is Magic: Sleepless in Ponyville was nominated for "Best Overall Sound in an Animation Program or Series", with Marcel Duperreault, Todd Araki, Jason Fredrickson, and Adam McGhie credited on that end.  Lets hope we dominate this one! 

    You can find their competition over here!
  • Equestria Girls Trailer Followup - Notable Points of Interest from the Trailer

    We are getting absolutely swarmed with emails of "did you see x in the trailer!" so lets do one of those good old fashioned episode followup style posts specifically for it!

    Head on down past the break for a whole bunch of notable pieces, from background characters to Twilight Sparkle not being a pony. 

    Sadly there isn't an HD version yet, so the images are a little bit on the low quality side.  We work with what we can get though!

  • Nightly Roundup #657

    I saw a few people mention that we were a bit lacking on Rarity and Sombra headers for the roundup in that last post, so let's fix that!   Have some Sombrarity.

    And the usual roundup stuff below the break!
