• Nightly Roundup #261

    This needs to be an episode right here.  It would be perfect.

    Have some news!

    Uhh, and the post title... TV Guide has a very slight alteration to the normal "It's about Time" synopsis.  I accidentally used my draft post from earlier for the roundup! It's pretty minor.  You can find that here anyway though!

    Bronies Vs Kony 2012

    We tend to stay out of real world politics here, but enough of you seem concerned about this that I figured I'd put a mention here in the roundup. A bunch of bronies are joining the cause to bring an African fugitive to justice. You can find the video about it here if something like this would interest you!

    Smile! Project Update

    Copy Paste:

    The Massive Smile! Project is a version of Pinkie’s Smile! Song done in the style of “We Are The World”. It will be released as a Global Giving charity single, supporting the Children’s Cancer Association’s Music Rx—a charity that “fights the pain and isolation of hospitalization with music therapists, volunteer musicians, and the mobile music cart that plays music, videos, and has hundreds of instruments to bring joy!” (GlobalGiving.org)

    So far, several pony musicians (including some very well-known artists) have expressed interest in the project. Wooden Toaster and the Living Tombstone have recorded solos for the project, and Mic the Microphone, BaldDumboRat, SherclopPones, CyrilRufus, F3nning, Kryptage, Decibelle, and Caboose have expressed interest.

    But here’s the fun part—the final chorus is being sung by the fandom. Anypony with even a vague ability to sing and a method to record themselves is welcome to submit their voice to be included. With over 44 submissions so far, we already have an epic ensemble, but the more voices—the better. There is just over a week left before the submission deadline of March 15.

    For more information on how to participate, please see the promo video

    The Massive Smile! Project has been featured on Brony Talk, Equestria Daily, and Everypony Sings.
