Back to unique ponies for headers! I can't remember the last time Colgate had a chance in the Roundup spotlight. Now I really have an urge to brush my teeth...
Anyhow, I can do that after the news and the cake we have for you guys tonight. Tons of EqG impressions in this one from Meetup reports so check those out if you are curious!

It's Father's Day everyone! You know, hopefully we get to see more of the main cast's families next season so we can flesh them out a bit more. It would be nice to see Dash's parents without having to resort to a flashback you know?

We don't usually see a lot of poetry in our inbox here at EqD so it was quite a surprise to me to see a collaborative project collecting all sorts of pony poetry into one big collection drop on us! With a collection consisting of over two dozen poems this is probably one of the biggest sources for pony poetry lovers I've seen in the fandom. So if you are a lover of poetry and have been finding what you have seen lacking in the community please feel free to check this out!
Pony Verse: A Collaborative Collection of Pony Poetry
Regardless of what you think of the actual movie designs, the fandom sure does know how to make the best of whatever it is they are given to work with. I hope those that do get to see the movie today and next week have fun.
On to art!
The Primate Look Is In This Summer
We've got a wonderful treat for you all today! After a long wait the singing voice of Twilight Sparkle and the voice of Sunset Shimmer, Rebecca Shoichet, has joined her friends on Twitter. As usual you know what this means, right guys? Time to give her a wonderfully warm welcome!
We have an urgent update from the EPCU which announced their photo challenge a couple days ago! Check out the revised details in the information below.

- A Fancy Ticket to BronyDays
- A Gold Sponsor Ticket to Crystal Fair
- A 20% Cooler Ticket to BUCK
And this is how you can participate:

Description: The wheel of time turns, as destiny and history clash together.Sunset of Time (New Part 17-18!)
Fifty years into the future, Sunset Shimmer is Princess Twilight Sparkle's most faithful student. She is smart and eager, but doesn't always think things through. Her life had been perfect, right up to the End of the World.
With a ruined future, Sunset travels into the past to alter the course of history. With only her mentor's cryptic word to go on, Sunset and the Elements of Harmony must solve the riddle of the Dark Regalia and stop the mysterious Vesper Radiance from rising to power. But the further Sunset goes, the more she feels like she's been through it all before.
Is destiny set in stone, or can Sunset shape her own future? Only time will tell.

Today marks the official release of Equestria Girls at numerous theaters around the United States and Canada. If you are interested in checking it out on the big screen, have some links:
United States Theater Locations

So far, the twitter response has been positive based on that L.A. release from yesterday. I guess the mass flood in the next few days will be the best way to judge it though, or throw caution to the wind, grab some friends, and raid a theater yourselves!
I'll toss a reminder post once it pops up online somewhere for those of you without access to a theater. Hopefully that iTunes listing updates some time soon.
Until then, feel free to discuss it in the comments below this post.
