Some of you may frequent Ponychan's /media/ board. Those few may recognize the Pony Music Archive, which is graciously upkept by a pony named Waka. It's reportedly so well-organized that even your grandmother could probably find that remix of Avast Fluttershy's Ass*. It even has that one cover I did of the Cutie Mark Crusader's crusading theme. I checked. Now that's impressive.
However, Waka is well-aware that the archive is presently a staggering size for most pony fans- it currently sits at well over 4GB of delicious pony Kool-Aid in music form. Scratch would be proud. Therefore, he has taken it upon himself to put together a best-of compilation of the best songs in the collection for your downloading pleasure. Isn't that nice? I think so.
You can find the stickied thread here, and the Google Doc with the download links here.

Blazbrony, a new game has been modified for ponydom.
I've given so many fighting games a shot, but I never actually get through the learning curve of memorizing combos. These flash videos make me want to give one a shot. Hopefully Fighting is Magic is addicting enough to do it with!
Anyway, have some guilty gear after the break!
And the first update here.
The pre-reader running the event has more copy paste too, have that below!
Fillies and gentlecolts, as I write this, my Internet is still out where I live due to the damage from Irene coming through on Sunday. This won't stop me, however.
At the current time, it's 1:25 p.m., August 31st on the east coast. For the Aussie and Asian participants, it's already September 1st. My friends, those participants and those wondering just what will result from this insanity, when you hit midnight local time on the 1st, you are free to write your hearts out.
Good luck to everypony and happy writing!

[Crossover][Dark][Normal] Yep, I think we have officially crossed over everything at this point.
Description: (Metal Gear Solid crossover) "Metal Gear has fallen into the hooves of an Equestrian revolutionary, who, with the backing of his human mercenary allies, intends to use it to depose Celestia and crown himself ruler. Now, the legendary Solid Snake must ally with the residents of Ponyville to prevent this monster from unleashing a nuclear catastrophe."Pony Gear Solid (New Part 18!)

I'm going to geek out for a second. I hope you don't mind.
We've featured these spinny pony models before, and they've always been very impressive. Tonight, we have some more, this time featuring our favorite princess pair. KP-ShadowSquirrel continues their march towards distracting us all to death with magnificent 3D pony plot with a Celestia (in both stereo and regular versions) and a Luna.
The Luna one details that these are made with Maya, ZBrush, and After Effects. I'm assuming they're passed through in that order- that the base model is done in Maya, refined and detailed in ZBrush, brought back into Maya for some final rendering, and then composited and prettied up in After Effects. I've used this workflow before, so, take my word for it that these are really impressive. Drop whatever you're doing and go take a look. They're magnificent.
(These are big, so the post might take a bit to load on a slower computer using anything but firefox. Apparently firefox is broken and loads these faster or something)
I have to admit, the completely ridiculous Derpy is growing on me. I wonder what they will do with her now that she has her own specific animations in season two?
Also some Spike being ridiculous. I'm not sure how Rarity taking a shower is any different than Rarity walking around, business as usual, but cartoons aren't supposed to make sense are they?

I think I'm most curious about Rainbow Dash. How does a pegasus get a rainbow mane?
The screenshot above is from Lauren Fausts DA page. Thanks to Zack for the heads up.
Aidan Mcateer released this animation reel with a small bit of Season 2 mixed in.
Check it out at this link, or watch it below! I'm not sure why Rainbow Dash is color faded, most of he other video isn't. Maybe it's a depressed dash episode?
UPDATE: Looks like it was removed, Gif's after the break! (Or click here for the combined one)
Suddenly I want to play Fallout 3. Wonder why?
Also something very...strange in the last slot. I think?

But I promised you three comics, so have two more after a page break. I'm sorry, but I can't for the life of me get the formatting to not look terrible. The shapes of these things are messing with my head.
[Normal] Some Celestia and Luna bonding stuff that apparently got lost in the hopper for a while! Well, Seth found it. Enjoy.

[Adventure][Dark] Sounds like an adventure story to me! I like all these Normal fics.
Description: After a fine vacation in nearby Withersdale, Twilight and her friends decide to head back to Ponyville, and Twilight thinks she knows how to get them back without having to endure a day-long walk. A theory on the workings of magic in one of Twilight's books seems to hold the answer, but when she tries, things don't work out quite right...It's Like a Cake... Scene (New Part 8!)

Below the Horizontal line, you will find a good amount of the people that make EQD awesome. While the blog is essentially fan-driven, these guys help manage and control it so we don't get flooded in a deluge of everything and become the next Youtube or Fanfiction.net.
There are three primary categories:
Check them all out below!
Behold, the Great and Powerful Princess Luna! She's so cute with her little cape. Ponies with little capes are, I think, about 15% cuter than ponies without little capes (not accounting for ponies which have something other than little capes. I'm not running a scientific journal here). This cutie little Luna happens to be for sale, so if you think you can give her a good home check out the auction here.
Or if you're like me and just don't have it in the budget to buy a soft and huggable little pony to call your very own, at least the pictures are nice to look at. I miss having disposable income. With as poorly as I've been sleeping, I could really use a pony in my bed. Oh well, maybe some day. For now, come with me below the page break, and we'll all check out some more awesome plushies.

Carrot farmer Applejack is kind of cute actually!
All images are after the break.
There's nothing quite like the mental whiplash of being deeply embroiled in the transhumanistic science fiction future of Human Revolution, and then taking a break, checking your email, and finding it full of tiny little ponies.
I swear I'm not being paid to advertise this game.
You can find the tiny ponies here.
Look guys, I'm flattered you want to make me an official pony. It must have been a pain in the neck to install those cameras in the birds nest in my back yard. But you must have gotten a bad exposure or something because the cutie mark is all wrong. Attached is a photo taken at a party a few months ago. Please take the time to correct this inaccuracy; I really can't afford to be misrepresented in public.
Also who do I talk to about that upcoming role in Season 3?
Who knows! Go speculate. The video and time is here!

So, I'm pretty sure we're actually a bit late to the party on these, but what the hay. Everypony loves colorful math cubes, we might as well complete the whole set, right? Normally I'd have more to say, but I hate Rubik's Cubes. Like, a lot.
