• Nightly Roundup #732


    No idea what to post so have some anthro Vinyl! Hey guys, I'm back from BronyCon for better or for worse. It's good to see you all again and get back to work and science! Expect to see more of me again in the following days.

    Now, on to the news!

  • Music of the Day #155


    That new sonic game comes out soon doesn't it? I really need to get a 3DS before this holiday season. 

    We have fourteen songs this time around, covering just about everything.  Get them all below!


  • Another Giant PMV: Twilight Sparkle's Sing-Along Blog


    We have yet another giant PMV From Daga Yemar, who you may know from those Disney PMV compilations over on Youtube.  This one covers all of the Doctor Horrible's Sing-Along blog, via Twilight Sparkle.  It clocks in at a whopping 42 minutes, so hopefully you all have some time to kill. 

    Check it out below.


  • My Little Pony Main Series #9 - Discussion, Download, And Variants


    It has been a week, so hopefully most of you had a chance to read this for the sake of discussion! If you haven't already picked it up, I would highly recommend it.  Big Mac was honestly one of the lowest on my list of best ponies, but he is making his way up there with this series.  Now if only these comics were weekly so we'd have something to really hold us over until season 4!

  • Comic: Boredom is Dangerous / Prince Blueblood - Prince Charmless / Ready for Adventure?


    We have some Looney Tunes style humor, followed by a ponification of another one of those old cartoon movie songs, and finish with a super simple Doctor Whoof comic because the Doctor is relevant right now.  Click for full!



  • Micro Comic #6 - Cutie Mark Crusaders Preview Appears


    A few pages of the upcoming Cutie Mark Crusaders micro-series comic has been released over on iTunes.  I have a feeling this is going to be a good one for those of you that are fans of these three.  Check them out after the break to avoid spoilers! And thanks to Kein for the heads up.


  • Air Force Pony Badge Detailed Around the Internet


    Way back on July 5th, an air force patch for Vance Airforce Base popped up in the Nightly Roundup, but lacked any real meaty information.  Since then, it has literally invaded the internet.  Multiple main-stream news sites have posted about it, and the guys at the airforce base have received a stream of questions from them.  One excellent quote from Wired
    “Honestly, the patch is the last thing on the student pilots’ minds,” Barger said. “They are focused on the rigors of their fast-paced and world-class pilot training … Our allied partners send their student pilots here to train because the United States Air Force is known for its air superiority around the globe, and now perhaps, in the land of Equestria. Perhaps the Wonderbolts will start sporting a U.S. Air Force patch of their own.”
     Anyway, have a list of articles.  I'm sure this isn't all of them, but it's a good chunk.

  • Japan Time - A Dog and a Pony Show


    "But I thought you waaanted whiiiining!" is what Rarity will be saying in about 20 minutes here. Can you even handle that in Japanese?  It's going to be interesting.

    I think this sort of sealed the deal for me in season one, throwing Rarity up to the top slow on my best pony list for a good few episodes, or at least until Party of One.

    Anyway, head on down below the break to check it out at 7:30 JAPAN TIME, or 3:30 Pacific.


  • Drawfriend Stuff #886


    It's not often we get a badass looking Pinkie Pie round these parts. At least not with the fuzzy poofy mane.

    Onward to art! It's a shorter one today, but you can probably blame a certain convention absorbing all the artists for that.

  • Applejack, Rainbow Dash, and Rarity Fan Favorite Poll Promos Posted


    The Hub has released promos for Applejack, Rainbow Dash, and Rarity to go along with Pinkie Pie the other day.   Each is dressed up election style with loads of new lines from each of the characters.  I'm really hoping the side cast gets some love after this.  I wouldn't mind a few more bonus lines from them while we sit around waiting for season 4.

    Anyway, head on down below the break for all three videos.

  • Story Updates - August 5th, Plus Comment Derp



    Story updates! We have a bunch today. 

    I'd also like to point this out here since it primarily effects fanfics,  there was a bit of a derp in comments yesterday where everything on the site was migrated over to Intense Debate.   I'm working on fixing this now, though it could be a while.  Luckily all of them still seem to be in-tact, they are just hidden.  Hopefully we can restore those on older posts that didn't have Intense Debate soon. 

    Anyway, go read stuff!

  • Poll Results: Best of the Mane 6 and Spike Voices


    Look at that Rarity! Winning polls left and right lately!  For the record, I'm totally with you guys on this one.  Tabitha is straight up epic with that voice.   Ever since her breakdown in Suited for Success, she has been on the top of my list. 

    Next poll: Best villain voice!  Hit it up on the sidebar as usual.


  • Random Merch - Decals, Blankets, Hats, and More!


    A whole bunch of you sent these in, so I'm assuming they are a big deal.  Fathead has released pony decals, though they are using the default vectors we have seen a million times over the years.  At least you can deck your stuff out in higher quality stickers!  I think most noted their location as Wal-Mart, so check there first if you want some.   Thanks to Bingk for these particular images. 

    Onward to random merch. 

  • Super Smash Ponies - Rarity


    Another one for that list of pony projects I seriously can't wait to see complete. Super Smash Ponies started off incredibly simple, and has evolved into a fully fledged game.  The team behind it has released a video showing off Rarity and her gem focused fighting style.  Head on down below the break to check it out!



  • Nightly Roundup #731


    So... New Doctor Who.  I wonder what people would think if we got a spinoff Doctor series with the pony version?

    Onward to nightly roundup stuff!
