  • Music of the Day #157


    When pony ends in a few years, I'm starting up a pirate business in the Caribbean. I'll  buy me one of those old fashioned style wooden ships, deck it out in pirate insignias, hire a crew of pirate actors, and host pirate tours for rich people. We can have mock treasure hunts and drink rum straight from the cask in island caves while singing pirate tunes.  Who wants in on this?

    ...Uh anyway, it's music of the day time! We have 15 tracks for you all tonight.  Head on down below the break!

    We haven't had a purely instrumental post in a while. Lets change that! Start with some fast paced orchestral with an excellent use of banjo to back it up, followed by a bit of ambient dedicated to an hourglass, and finish with a Jazzy Fluttershy track. Get them all below!

  • Artisan Pony Crafts Compilation #22



    Sweetie Belle does have an amazing voice and if she grew up to be anything but a singer I think I would be shocked. But life is good at throwing curve balls at you, so maybe I shouldn't be so surprised if Sweetie's talent actually turns out to be wrestling.

    Crafts everywhere today guys! Check them all out after the break.

  • New Dungeons and Dragons Magazine Posts Ponies


    I haven't played Dungeons and Dragons in years, but I'm sure a bunch of you have.  In the debut issue of the new Gygax Magazine (A successor to the old "Dragon" magazine), they have a full on article about an "Assault on Equestria!" campaign, where a father battled it out with his daughter via some pony Vs. monster mayhem.  They even used Celestia's Castle as a setpiece and rolled hit chance based on distance.  Clearly the original target audience needs full on monster manuals at this point.  She looks like she had fun at least.

    Head on over here to check out the full article!
  • Story: Dream


    [Sad]

    Author: Cascadejackal
    Description: Hidden deep within a maze, well away from prying eyes, there is a statue.
    The last great work of an artist long forgotten, her time-worn visage
    watches the raising and setting of the sun and the moon as though
    enraptured.

    Who created such a marvel, this sculpture of copper and brass, of crystal
    and cog, and why, is unknown, lost to the mists of time.... until now.

    This is the tale of a painter and a clockmaker, and the love they shared.
    This is the tale of a dreamer, who knew only her dream.

  • Comic: Tales From Ponyville / Always Greener / Tasting New Flavors

    Chapter 3

    I've been meaning to feature this comic for quite awhile now, but kept forgetting for whatever reason. Tales from Ponyville has been going on for quite awhile now and is a slice of life style comic series that is quite awesome I must say!

  • Youtube Pony Easter Egg Expanded


    As if the guys over at Youtube couldn't get any craftier with the addition of random ponies prancing around when you search "My Little Pony", it looks like they took it to the next level with customized header bars for just about everyone.  Each pony from the mane 6 to Doctor Whooves has a theme.  This is the best easter egg ever I think.

    Simply search the pony name and you should get something for it.  Some need to be a bit specific (Princess Luna instead of just Luna).  And a few ponies don't have one (Cloudchaser, Daring Do) 

    I've messed around with a few more well known characters from other geeky movies/shows and had no luck repeating it, just in case it was some automated script.  It could still be, but it's a damn good one if it is: 

    Vader < Ponies apparently
    Anyway, go try it for yourselves!  Thanks to Kenneth for the heads up!
