    Physics Project and Thank you Note

    "I have been working on this project for two years now, and I am quite proud to present to you part one of Exploring Physics through Candy Colored Ponies! It's pretty dense right now, but if time permits I will be advancing into part two which will include applications and explicit computations, as well as how to sections.

    To the Show Staff and the Brony Community,
    I wrote this essay for a plethora of reasons, but the primary purpose is to give a sincere thank you to the show staff and fandom that have changed my life so much. You may think that a 300 page tome on physics is a strange thank you card, but when you recognize that I could have instead spent the time making a thank you card for somepony once a week, every week, for the rest of my life I think the level of appreciation I feel becomes more apparent. I really have pulled a 180 in the past two years, and I will always be thankful to the people who made it possible.
    Thank you Lauren Faust for starting such a wonderful show.
    Thank you DrWolf for your wise, kind, and inspiring words at a time that I really needed them.
    Thank you M.A. Larson for my favorite episodes – Amending Fences and It’s About Time, episodes which have helped me so much.
    Thank you Silver Quill, Commander Firebrand and Lily Peet for your humor, wit, and insightful commentary.
    Thank you to all of the show staff who worked so hard to provide us with such high quality material.
    Thank you to all of the members of the Brony fandom who have made this experience possible.
    Thank you all! Thank you everypony!

    Tonight's Groups Looking For More

    Symphonic Rock Opera


    I'm a composer seeking a lyricist/co-writer who is interested in putting together an extended symphonic rock piece chronicling the events leading up to the founding of Equestria (Season 2, "Hearth's Warming Eve").

    Experience is preferred but not strictly required. Instrumental ability is also a plus, and I'm flexible as to how we split musical and lyrical duties or whether we each handle one half of the equation. If you are interested, please send an email to ClassicalEquestria@gmail.com with an example of your work. Hope to hear from you soon!

     Reading Rainbow's "One Full Day" Hardcopy Edition! 

    Hey, guys! Corejo here.
    Do you all remember my story Reading Rainbow?    http://www.fimfiction.net/story/10624/reading-rainbow   
    Do you remember the story within the story that Rainbow Dash read to Twilight while laid up in the hospital?  Did you ever want to hold and read that poem in your very own hands with your very own eyes?

    Well, now you can!

    I have fleshed out plans for a fully illustrated hardcopy version of Reading Rainbow’s “One Full Day” poem.  It will feature approximately seventy-six—yes, seventy-six—pages of illustrations by the amazingly talented Ruirik!

    How much is it?  Well, isn’t that the ever-burning question?  Prices will depend on how many people are interested, but guidelines are as follows (before shipping costs):

    0-59 books ordered: Project cancelled  :fluttercry:

    60-99 books ordered: $30/book

    100-199 books ordered: $25/book

    200-299 books ordered: $20/book        

    300+ books ordered (stretch goal!): $15/book

    Yes, you read those prices right.  Only $15-$30 for seventy-six pages worth of pony.  That’s your standard price range for one standard picture by your standard pony artist.  I am also considering allowing a few slots for OC background features for those who want to put in a little extra.  Current sizing is planned to be 7"x9".

    But now that we’ve gotten prices out of the way, let me talk about why.

    I am not doing this for monetary gain.  I have never accepted money for ponies, and I don’t see myself doing so any time soon.  Ponies are a labor of love; they always have been.

    I have a few charities in mind.  Every penny over cost of production will go to one or more of the following, or, if you like, feel free to suggest a few others where you’d like to see your money go.


    St. Jude Children's Research Hospital

    Ronald McDonald House

    Doctors Without Borders

    Send a PM/telegram/instagram/carrier pigeon/smoke signal my way if you are interested in a copy.  Now, I ask of you: go spread the word, and let’s make this a thing!

    Onward and Upward!

    Brony Stories: A Star-Studded Event

    I asked various reviewers, artists, and such from across the Brony fandom this question: What first drew you to My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, and what keeps you around?

The video features, in alphabetical order: AnimeWolfgamer, Anna Madsen, Crimson Glow, Hallelujah Brony, Mattwo7, MisAnthro Pony, OkashiNaArtist Nat, Phoolery, The Second Opinion, UnovaBrony, and of course, myself, since I'm the host.

    Brony Problems: Confessing as a Brony

    This video will teach you the best way to tell others you are a brony and like My Little Pony Friendship is Magic. The video goes over Parents, Dealing with it, Understanding it and figuring out the best way to comprehend it or not because theirs no reason to tell anyone that you like talking ponies. My Little Pony Friendship is Magic is just like any other cartoon show that is airing.
