  • Hot in Cleveland Brings Back Pony

    Remember the episode we reported on months ago about the Brony fireman that was to stir up the cast of the show Hot in Cleveland? From the looks of it, the concept appeared to be popular enough that a new episode is airing on July 17th which will return the fire fighting pony fan to the show once more. Will the television show finally portray the fandom right? Will fireman Eddie Cibrian get the girl? And most importantly, who is his favorite pony!?

    According to the press release we got from the PR people for the show you can go an express your feelings about the upcoming episode using the hashtag #HICBronies on Twitter. Besides the PR statement, Zap2It confirms the episode for the 17th so I guess it is real. Check the description for the episode below:

    Title: “Pony Up”
    Airdate: Wednesday, July 17, 2013 (10pm ET/PT)
    Episode Description: Victoria (Wendie Malick), seeking some mood-cheering limelight, acts as a spokes model and inadvertently commits to a very generous donation on national TV. Joy (Jane Leeves) works with private investigator, Bob (Dave Foley), and reunites with hot Brony fireman, Sean (Eddie Cibrian).
    Guest Stars Include:  Eddie Cibrian (“Third Watch” and “Sunset Beach”) and Dave Foley (“Dan Vs.”)

  • Everfree Northwest: A Calpain Retrospective

    Amazing, simply amazing. I had high hopes for Everfree Northwest considering the rave reviews I heard about the event last year, but I can safely say all those expectations were not only met, but greatly exceeded. A combination of great people, events, and merchandise made this an experience I will not soon forget and has made my trip to the west coast my best convention experience to date.

    As I was so busy running around chatting and such I didn't get a good chance at some pictures, but an awesome pony fan by the name of Brawny Buck has provided me with a ton of images for this report. Thank you so much man!

  • Reviewing Is Magic: After School Special

    Here at EQD, we've been accused of ignoring criticism of Equestria Girls in favor of praise. So let's mix it up a bit—in this video, pony analyst extraordinaire Antony C shares a critical take on the movie, exposing some of its plot holes and ideological inconsistencies. Check it out after the break!

  • Japanese MLP Manga Detailed

    As was announced a while back, a new pony focused short manga will be unveiled in Japan.  In September, the magazine Pucchi Gumi (image above) will have it included within. 

    You may be thinking, "but don't we already see a bunch of vector comics in other girly/kid looking magazines across the world?".  And you would be right at that! We have posted quite a few, and most of them are pretty ridiculous looking.  The generic stock vector of Twilight Sparkle they are using in the announcement above definitely doesn't help any.

    Fortunately, they seem to have brought on these guys to do it.  If you are curious about their other Manga works, hit up either the gallery page, or their "Works" section. 

    Or something even more relatable, via a series of Zelda manga they did (image below).   Hopefully the same level of quality is applied to pony, followed by it being split off from the Magazine and sold separate.  I wouldn't mind another pony comic to follow every month. 

    Thanks to everyone that sent this stuff in, and Bojo Pigeon for the pile of links and translating stuff for us!

  • Drawfriend Stuff #863

    I have no clue what to say about this image other than it is awesome.  Floaty planet thingies and giant headdresses always are.

  • Spotlight Vocal Music: The Rescue / Dah Montz! / Aviators - Friendship (Acoustic Version)

    I've been trying to keep spotlight music posts down to two each, but the third one is kind of a revamp of a song you all have probably heard before, so I figured I'd add it.

    We start this one off with a bit of synthpop in the form of a Vinyl/Octavia song, followed by a country rock track, and finish with Aviators acoustic version of "Friendship.  Check them all out below!

    1.) Cherax Destructor - The Rescue
    2.) Dah Montz! [Eile Monty] (Day after birthday pressie)
    3.) Aviators - Friendship (Acoustic Version)

  • Story: There, They're

    [Comedy] A grammar fic?! I'm doomed!

    Author: FanNotANerd
    Description: Throughout all of history, one concept has kept both the written and spoken word from becoming an unintelligible mess. That concept is that most holy of grounds known by some as "grammar." It sets down rules for language to follow, and keeps it free of distortion.

    Yet something is wrong. The rules are failing. And only one pony so much as suspects that something is wrong. Something that goes deeper than a simple appearance of errors. Something that could be an attack on the very root of language itself.
    There, They're

    Additional Tags: Grammar is really bloody important.
  • PMV/Animation: Baking Bad / Raritia

    We have two new ones in the PMV's with a ton of custom animation category this time around, starting off with a crossover with the Breaking Bad intro, followed by a whopping five minute video dedicated to Silvahound Avicii Vs. Rarity.  It has a bit of an uncanny valley thing going at some parts, but overall it's pretty cool to see this song get some animation love!

    Head on down below the break for both of them.

    1.) Raritia
    2.) Baking Bad: Meth is Magic
