• Nightly Roundup #12

    OHGODLUNA

    Inb4 Luna is creepy as hell in season two!

    On with the news!

    Guest Appearances at BronyCon

    The convention being held on the 25th of June in New York (Found here) will have a few of the more well known bronies attending.  Cabal from rainbowdash.net is presenting a panel, along with Eurobeat Brony who will be doing a live video Q&A for everyone.  Sounds like this event is turning out to be pretty massive!



    Merch Giveaway on Ponychan 

    Over on the /merch/ board of ponychan, another giveaway is currently under way.  The rules are pretty simple: Either Write a fic, draw a picture, or come up with a description of Star Swirl's life.  For those of you who have no clue who the hell that is, you can find the image here.   She is a toy that comes bundled with Rarity, which just so happens to be the grand prize.  Runner-ups will recieve various brushable single ponies.  If you are interested in entering, hop on over to the ponychan thread at this link!



    Rainbow Dash Takes Over a Mountain

    Or at least a sticker of her.  Some brony has pasted his super awesome custom Rainbow Dash sticker at the peak of a mountain for all the world to see.  Few places are worthy of such a mare, but I think this will work out well.  You can find the image page here!



    More Webcomics Go Brony 

    What is it with all these web comic creators!  They have ALL converted!
    1. Gingers Bread
    2. Full Time Ink (Several appearances in various comics)
    Slowly we devour the internet...one community at a time.  I'm still amazed at the lack of Penny Arcade pony!



    European World of Tanks Brony Guild

    It took a while, but the european server finally has a pony clan to call it's own. The clan is called READ (Royal Equestrian Armour Division), and for those interested in joining, you can find the page for it here!



    Twilight's Library Has a Name?

    Apparently logging into The Hub website gives you access to a customizable room, where you can spend your club bucks (collected from various things around the page) to add backgrounds and other items.  The Twilight's Library selection is called "Books and Branches Library".  Whether this is an official name, or a lazy designer, remains to be seen.   Thanks to Hoppie Love for the find!



    Beatles PMV Project

    Flashgen is starting up a massive compilation of pony clips to various beatles tracks.  You can find the page, and his intro video here!  If you are interested in helping out, you can email him at Flashgen75@yahoo.com or send him a message on Youtube.



    Ponies Pop Up in New Zealand's "The Listener"

    Another news source has thrown down the brony card, this time way over in New Zealand where the show hasn't even started airing yet!  The internet really is an amazing place.  Sadly it doesn't really cover anything new...which is why it's here in the nightly update! Hoorah! You can find the article here, along with my awesome banner that I need to change for tomorrow!



    Know Your Meme Pony Stats #2

    A few weeks ago I posted up the statistics for FiM over on Knowyourmeme.com.  Apparently we are closing in on some serious records here.  At it's current rate, it will be come the most viewed meme of all time on the site on the 24th of June.  Great job everyone!  You can find the new stats here



    EQDaily News Below!

    Fanfiction Fan Art

    You may have noticed a trend over on the Fallout Equestria post, a ton of fan art has been added.  I've said it before, and I'll say it again, these posts are your story posts!  If someone gives you fan art for it, or if the image I assign isn't something you want, feel free to let me know!  The blog format does have a few benefits that FF.net and DA generally don't give. 

    Madmax Appreciation Drawing Training Ground

    For those of you that don't follow the training ground post at all, today's bonus entry is to include Madmax's pony into the mix.  She is having a tough time right now IRL, and can really use all of your support.  Madmax has provided us with well over 250 images at this point, completely free, so she deserves it!  Now go draw her ponysona doing random things!

    Reading Rainboom Twice
    Hey

    I don't get much sleep






    And that is it for tonight's Nightly Round Up! Yes, it is 4:00AM. Yes, these posts do seem to be steadily moving to earlier in the morning. Yes, I am half asleep right now and completely incapable of writing anything witty.  I'm gonna go sort that side bar now and schedule tomorrow morning.  Wish me luck!  I'll proofread this stuff later!

    4. Oh my, a news report without Luke Allen. How rare.

      ReplyDelete
    5. That's not a creepy Luna. That's Luna having tried coffee for the first time. Or drugs. Moon drugs.

      And yay, The Listener didn't portray us in a negative light! The first impression for my fellow Kiwis is positive! The battle may be won yet!

      ReplyDelete
    6. Holy shit! I was like "Let me check ED one more time and hit the sack" and then Luna is in my face going "DON'T GO TO BED!"






      Time to crack open the energy drinks and burn the midnight oil doing nothing much. Cause that's the least I can do for our superior moon goddess.

      ReplyDelete
    7. It is 5:00 here. The only reason I am up this late is a last ditch effort to rollover my sleep cycle; That is out of whack, by the way, because of ponies. (confound them)

      ReplyDelete
    8. After reading this I went down and check my copy of the listener twice (it's an old one though). I'm with slaanme, first impressions like that count!

      ReplyDelete
    9. You should take Luna's advise, American Bronies. Stay up all night, Sleep through Celestia's day.

      Or maybe she is telling me to stay up through the night. I don't know, The Night and day dynamics get more confusing when you factor in time zones.

      ReplyDelete
    10. Don't go to bed? It is 13:29 in the afternoon here.

      ReplyDelete
    11. 5:18, comprende? My alarm will go off in less than an hour.

      ReplyDelete
    12. As you wish princess, i will not sleep tonight.

      ReplyDelete
    13. 5 stars for GREATEST LUNA

      ReplyDelete
    14. OHGOD WHERE DID THAT LUNA COME FROM

      I think I just got a new TF2 spray... :O

      ReplyDelete
    15. Hmm, I'm surprisingly disapproving about someone putting a sticker on a mountain marker. Someone is going to have to clean that off and they'll have to climb the mountain to just cause of Rainbow Dash.

      You got it Moondrug Luna.

      ReplyDelete
    17. I would stay up all night for you Luna!

      ReplyDelete
    18. Ponies, I think we need to start asking ourselves a serious question here: Does Luna have mind control powers? Because I can't help but look at that picture and feel... oddly compelled....

      ALL HAIL LUNA VI EQUESTRIA!

      ReplyDelete
    19. My darling luna! I'll got to sleep under your moonlight and dream about you!

      ReplyDelete
    20. Where did you get that image?
      I don't remember that from the show, and it doesn't look fan-made. Oh well.

      ReplyDelete
    21. I was already planning on it, Luna! I'm glad we were thinking the same thing
      I was wondering where our update was, and somehow ended up watching half an hour's worth of Pinkie Pie's nonsense on youtube

      ReplyDelete
    22. Putting a sticker on a mountain is just littering and messing up the place. Yeah, it's got a meaning to us but you're essentially putting a graffiti tag up there. Not so hot.

      ReplyDelete
    23. Penny Arcade is complete shit anyway (sorry if anyone reading this is a Penny Arcade fan.) Not that I wouldn't accept the writer into the herd, the more the merrier.

      ReplyDelete
    24. Books and Branches Library? I LOVE IT!

      You know, it's brilliant because it's in a tree :D


      I'm also waiting for a pony reference in "Housepets!"

      ReplyDelete
    25. Why are people complaining about the sticker. I don't think anyone will mind there being a sticker on a post on top of a mountain. Also leaving a piece of you or something you love on top of a mountain is a great form of expression, as long as it isn't harmful to others or the environment (which a sticker stuck to a man-made statue really isn't.)

      ReplyDelete
    26. Don't go to bed?

      YES GREAT PRINCESS LUNA!

      YOU COMMAND AND I OBEY! NONE CAN STOP THE CRUSADE OF THE RIGHTEOUS!

    27. http://www.furaffinity.net/gallery/furseiseki/
      Here is where the Luna picture is from. (i think)

      ReplyDelete
    28. I'm hoping that name for Twilight's library isn't laziness.... Cause I kind of like it <.<

      And for those interested in "The Beatles" project, I'm looking for either video-makers or fan art/album covers in the pony style.

      ReplyDelete
    29. I actually just woke up. its 8:35 AM right now, so looks like I'm not going to bed. Still dosen't make Luna any less adorable.

      But anywho. Lets draw some madmax!

      ReplyDelete
    30. Don't go to sleep? I just woke up! 5 am here!

      ReplyDelete
    31. Furseiseki you say!? BY THE GODS! He's one of the craziest and most brilliant persons on the planet :O

      ReplyDelete
    32. at this rate we have to start taking bets on when MLP:FiM will over take Forever Alone guy.

      And by order of Luna I stayed up all night. time for work haha.

      ReplyDelete
    33. and there goes google with rainbowbooks and twilight eclipse ads

      ReplyDelete
    34. but.... I don't read the listener....
      This is the first mention I've seen of this outside of my own work.... perhaps someone there reads Debate?

      (page 6)

      I intend to write an article too, since I'm on break at the moment. Looking forward to it.

    35. Speaking of stats, how does Equestria Daily's "Total Pageviews" counter work? The counter widget updates continuously and at a regular interval, without polling the server. The rate of pageviews doesn't seem to change based on time of day.

      ReplyDelete
    36. Lol who draw Luna like that xD?
      Btw, Synchtube already turned me into an insomniac
      Yayz now i can go DJ in the clubs xD

      And thanks for linking to the source of that pic, whoever did that.

      ReplyDelete
    39. I fucking love these nightly roundups!

      ReplyDelete
    40. They got Luna's eyes wrong. They're Teal/Turquoise
      Then again who knows they might also change in season 2 throughout the series
      Looks like people are making them more realistic
      Turquoise eyes usually change between blue & green

      ReplyDelete
    41. Hmm...
      I Wonder what Luna's Personality will be like...
      Well time to bug Lauren Faust and the MLP Team

      ReplyDelete
    42. HELL YES!!! so buying the listener today for this =]

    46. Thanks for the EU world of tanks shoutout- lots of people are joining!

      ReplyDelete
    47. Actually Penny Arcade has dropped a Pony in at least one comic, "Ballin" back in march, it's a gen. 1 by the looks. That still count?

      ReplyDelete
    48. @Anonymous

      No.

      Surely you shouldn't have to ask; there is nothing further back than gen4, you hear me?! NOTHING.

      ReplyDelete
    49. I've just been through four months of Penny Arcade comics because I was *sure* I saw another MLP PA. Tycho is sitting on a couch playing a game, when Gabe walks in with a DVD(?) of MLP. He makes Tycho watch it. Last panel is the two of them in front of an explosion of rainbows declaring their love for ponies.

      I couldn't find it.

      Did someone do a spoof PA strip? Did I dream it? Am I going insane?

    50. @Church

      I'm sorry to be the one who has to tell you, but yes, you are losing your mind.

      Actually, no, I'm not sorry at all. That was kind of fun.

      ReplyDelete
    51. I really liked this news post. That report on Bronies from Australia was quite amusing actually. Funny how quickly they go to the Hitler reaction video.

      ReplyDelete
    52. Thanks guys for getting this to almost the most viewed meme so far!

      I still have mixed thoughts on Boxxy crawling back onto the top 10.

      ReplyDelete
    53. You're so cooooooooool Seth. :D

      ReplyDelete
    54. That pic made me think of this "One, two, Luna's coming for you...Three, four, better lock your door...Five, six, grab your crucifix...Seven, eight, gonna stay up late...Nine, ten, never sleep again."

      ReplyDelete
    55. Tip to any comic maker looking to get more views: mention ponies and get plugs on Equestria Daily. I've actually found several new comics from them being mentioned here.

      ReplyDelete
    56. >"Reading Rainboom twice"

      My favorite update of the post.
      XD


      Get some sleep, mang

      ReplyDelete

      ReplyDelete
    58. Okay, the CG fanart for F : E is officially uncanny-valley worthy. Can't look at LittlePip's face without wanting to lose my lunch.

      ReplyDelete
    59. Where are the ponies on that Full time ink site? Can't find a lick of em

      ReplyDelete
    60. oh look
      a news article that actually got it right

      ReplyDelete
    61. @Anonymous

      In one story the ponies appear in the backgrounds in human form, here are the quick links -
      Rainbow Dash/Fluttershy, Twilight, Derpy, Rarity, Luna, Pinkie Pie, and Apple Jack.

      Plus there's a comic about bronies here.

      ReplyDelete
    62. That Rainbow Dash sticker appears to be on top of Mount Snowdon. Looks like she's already reached Wales then.

      ReplyDelete
    63. You know, last night I could barely sleep a wink, at all. No matter what, I couldn't get comfortable, I couldn't sleep, nothing.

      So, I got up, turned the computer on, and went to Equestria Daily...and that creepy picture of Luna WAS THE FIRST DAMN THING I SAW.

      I refuse to believe that this was somehow some sort of weird coincidence.

      ReplyDelete
    64. I could imagine an anti brony's face when he's like yeah i'll climb this mountain like a BAWWZ cuz ponies haven't conquered it yet. ...Gets to the top >:(

      ReplyDelete
    65. GOOD LUCK, SETH!

      ReplyDelete
    66. Sethisto, you might want to check out "Ginger's Bread" again. Carl has a Derptastic comic up!

      ReplyDelete
    67. The RD sticker on the mountain is awesome! Which mountain is it?

      ReplyDelete
    68. SETH
