Perhaps you are in my shoes and also live behind a wall of pastel equines that block out real life current events. If that is the case, then you should probably check out some of the real news sites out there!
Or you could just watch the storm on youtube.

Description: MLP Chess is a thing known as a chess variant. In chess variants, the general idea is the same as chess (turn-based, boards, pieces) but there are certain elements changed, such as the setup, different pieces and even turn order. This is one of the milder ones, meaning that it plays a lot like FIDE, *the* chess.MLP Chess

Good news! I finally found a good width/height for youtube videos, so no more random sized embeds all over the place!
Anyway, On Neigh You Didn't above, and a Yu-Gi-Oh Abridged Pony Parody of Giant Rock below!
Make MLP fanart involving Persian themes.
I don't care if it's a Prince of Persia crossover (Luna in a Warrior Within armor, lol), or Achemenid portrayal in pony form, the Simorgh, or just drawing Garshasp becoming friends with the FiM-cast.
Just surprise me.
Here are the price charts:
1st Place: Garshasp on Steam (19,99€)
2nd+ 3rd Place: a $5,99 GoG game of free choice
4rd+5rd Place: a $3 game of free choice on Steam.
Dead line is 18th May which is also the release day. and make sure to add either GoG or Steam ID in your email bar.

Apparently typing "MLPTEN" in the code box at checkout activates it!
Sadly they don't have any of the hard to find toys that most of us are searching big lots regularly for, but they still have some stuff!

Apparently it lasts until 12/31/11, so no rush!
Thanks to Watching the Moon for the tip off!
The Spike Pilgrim video from yesterday has appeared on the official Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World Facebook page. It's a shame the movie is a bit old now, hopefully some people will see it posted up!
Pony Polka 2!
I really hope the guest appearance thing happens for season 2. I can only imagine how ridiculous that episode will be, especially if they really are planning to ramp everything up for it (According to Flashinthepan at least).

This might be where I send people for editing after the pre-read process determines its needed, though I still really like Ponychan.
I know it's a bit more strict here than it used to be with the pre-readers for authors, but we will see if the desperation for content outweighs the need for quality come summer! I feel bad sending you guys off for editing in email, but lately the reader base seems to have become much more...picky. I've seen a few stories that would have been perfectly fine a few months ago get attacked in comments, especially when it comes to grammar.
Anyway, stop reading those dusty old books and go make some friends! ...To read more dusty old books with!
Also another I need a source for!

The Filly synctube is doing a Pinkiethon tonight in honor of the best episode ever. Join in on the fun! Until the room fills up, I guess.
Here's the room!
And if that room is full, Filly says go here instead!
Scribus has put together a My Little Pony MUSH. For those unaware, a MUSH is basically a MUD, which is a text-based adventure game!
He says that the project is in open beta, and he's looking for ponies to test it out, and perhaps for larger roles as well, such as RPing the mane characters. He is also looking for moderators.
Check it out! The Ponychan thread is here.
You can also simply join the server by pointing your MUD client at equestriandawn.dyndns.org.
Yes, it looks ridiculous I know. The actual demonstration is after the intro!
This is another demonstration video for the my little pony flash game that popped up a while back. This video goes more into the technical specifics than the last one.
I can't wait to see what everyone creates with this once the sandbox version is released!

Masterlinkx's Youtube channel has been terminated for copyright infringement.
You all may remember when it was shut down before, but eventually reinstated. Hopefully Youtube does something about it.
I don't think this is any reason to panic. Thankfully no other pony channel has been terminated. I think Hasbro knows how much of an impact Youtube has had on the success of this show. They would be absolutely crazy to crack down on it considering 70% of us don't have the Hub.
For those asking who Flashinthepan is: He is a layout artist for Friendship is Magic who answers questions on /co/ every once in a while.
For those wondering what the > are for: It's a 4chan thing that changes your text to green, usually used to quote someone else or imply something

Everything is after the page break! (Updated Question Set 15!)
And the final numbers!
Twilight Sparkle: $6,200
Pinkie Pie: $4,050
Derpy Hooves: $2,151
Absolutely crazy. Grats to all the winners!
But I'm surprised Derpy was last! How could we betray what was essentially the brony mascot for the entire first few weeks!?
Thanks to Chris for the graph (I doubt he wants me to give his full name!)

The Winter Wrap-Up Sing Along is still going on, but here's another one from Ponychan for you guys to sink your proverbial teeth into. This time it's the Cutie Mark Crusader theme song.

I'm pretty sure we can safely assume that Dashie will be the next princess of Equestria, replacing tyrant Celestia of course.

Champions Online has added rainbow powers, and this has, of course, spawned a whole armada of Rainbow Dash/Celestia knockoffs.
Now to turn back on the MMO resistance... I just quit WoW, I can't get into another!
April Friend Off
The April Friend off will be officially posted on May 2nd. Currently my "event" folder has 20 entries and counting, so that should be interesting! Especially considering everypony always enters on the very last day!
After that, I have some other stuff planned... Obviously these aren't set in stone, and can change based on feedback below.
OC Pony Competition (Updated)
The First event will be an OC pony Competition. It's supposed to be completely ridiculous and mary sue all over the place. One bracket will be MS Paint, the other will be for more professional digital artists. Still working on the specifics here.
I got back in contact with the reward guy. These are actually some pretty badass prizes!
1. €59 Steam Game (Brink, Crysis 2, etc...)
2. €29 Singularity
3. €18 Magicka Complete Pack
1. €45 DUNGEONS - Steam Special Edition
2. €19 Cargo! - The Quest for Gravity
3. €18 Magicka CompletePack
Total Prize Pool: €188
The 300 word event will probably happen first, so some things are bound to change.
Still really cool though!
300 Word Short Story/Poem Event
There are a few fanfiction based pony community/websites in progress right now. One on DA, and two just out in the void. So lets give all the fledgling authors some ideas for content! The first 300 word story event was undeniably successful, and Cereal Velocity is willing to host a new one with his new author powers. He is still deciding on any special rules for it, but keep an eye open!
Anyway, I'm sure we will run all sorts of neat stuff over the pony break to keep the interest going. Pony can never die!
A pony going simply by the name of 'E' has made quite an informative post in Ponychan's Projects section about an image database he's working on.
If you're into coding and programming, this may be interesting to you! Quite frankly it goes just over my head, but I can appreciate the work he's put into it so far. Give it a look!
This is the thread.
This is similiar to the last one found here. But for those of you who have read that one, you know what to expect. I think they tried to keep a consistent plot this time!
Of course it's still totally random.
Ultimate Ponychan Collaboration 3
Unlike a choose your adventure story, these tend to be on the fly, with the artist busting out images based on replies.
Pretty interesting if you haven't experienced one before!

I guess It's Twilight Day!
Also The Twilight Sparkle Auction is currently breaking $5,400! Guess our favorite antisocial pony deserves this more than anypony else anyway!
