Someone has ponified the ending credits to Golden Sun: The Lost Age, and added a custom short story to finish it off. I still have to play this game.. there sure is an overload of stuff to do lately.
Anyway, check it out after the break!
Leopardpawz over on Deviant Art has released a really awesome time lapse video showing off the creation of a raw scene from Friendship is Magic. It's pretty crazy how much actually goes into a single scene, and defenitly worth a watch! Head on over to his page here and check it out!
(Update: Since people seem to be confused, this isn't an actual DHX animator, just a fan)
We have a mix of vocals and remixes this time around, starting with two originals and finishing with a greatly extended version of that background music playing when Cadence and Shining Armor EXPLODE. Find them below!
1.) What We Have is Magic - Scarlett Peace
2.) I'm a Hurricane (Original Song by PhonyBrony)
3.) Waltz of Ridiculous Sentiments (Love Conquers All Remix)
The Elements of Charity 24 hour fundraiser for Maddy Peters' 'Inked! Art for Africa' effort was a resounding success over this weekend! The goal of raising $5000 for the charity was easily surpassed for a total of $5053 in just that 24 hour period! Congratulations guys, I couldn't be more proud of you all.
Many cool guests popped in over the course of the marathon (a hearty thanks to those who showed up to hear my terrible voice while I was interviewed) including some special thanks from the likes of Andrea Libman, Ashleigh Ball, and Maddy Peters herself in the form of audio files for the audience!
Once again, a big thanks to all of you that showed up in support of this event and especially to those that donated. You guys rock! Check out the official copy paste on the event after the break as well as for the audio files from our lovely VAs!

be the perfect servitor race. They are powerful, adaptable,
intelligent and completely under the control of their creators. A
laboratory accident frees one such pony from her mental chains, but
how can one mare save herself and the rest of her people if she
doesn't even know she's a slave?
This is not the Equestria you know and these are not your little ponies.
Not yet anyway.

Time for a whole bunch of random pony merch! First off is another one of those huge coloring books found in the Ukraine. All of the pages can be found after the break translated. Thanks to Ярослав for the translation and images!
We also have a whole pile of stuff from a Dutch store called Action. Jarika took a bunch of pictures, and send over a list of prices! Have that:
- Pinkie Pie door sticker (€1,98). About 50-60 cm wide. The balloons and part of her mane are sparkly.
- Pinkie Pie plastic cup (€0,46). Green or pink background.
- Sticker box (€1,95) four sticker sheets featuring the Mane Six, Celestia, Luna and the Cutie Mark Crusaders. Yep, the stickers are pink and sparkly, but they are pretty nice :)
- Plastic scissors (about €0,99?) with Applejack, Rainbow Dash, Fluttershy, Pinkie Pie and Twilight Sparkle. No Rarity, though. Each pair of scissors cuts a different pattern.
- Celestia pen bag (€0,99). Very pink, but large enough for your pens. And hey, Celestia is white!
Images of the rest of it can be found after the break!
Over in Calgary, our ace reporter, Navi (Not to be confused with that obnoxious Zelda faerie) has bugged Mark Meer, the voice actor behind Commander Shepard in the Mass Effect series about ponies. Apparently he is a fan, and has endorsed his favorite pony in Equestria. Using a strenuous investigative process, we have come to the conclusion that Mr. Shepard actually snuck off to watch ponies at the end of Mass Effect. That much galactic stress and turmoil can only be healed by pastel equines.
I guess he does sort of share an affinity with the "do everything yourself" attitude his favorite pony has, though he may want to re-watch Applebuck season.
Anyway, check it out after the break!
You LA people must be having a blast lately! It looks like Meghan McCarthy is invading yet another panel. At Nerdmelt, Meghan is signed up to do a writers panel along with a few other cartoon writers. It looks like tickets are actually still available this time around, but considering how huge the fanbase is in California, you might want to grab them before they are gone.
The actual panel takes place at 5:00 PM Pacific on May 6, 2012. For more information on Nerdmelt overall, check out their website here!
Thanks to Dr. WTF for the heads up! For once, he was the only one to send it. Slackers.
Update: Apparently these pop up on itunes after a while too, so catch it there after!

Author: Nicholas Taylor
Description: No matter how strong the bonds of friendship may be, the unexpected events of life and the call of dreams can still pull friends apart. Only Twilight remains in Ponyville, and she wonders if she'll ever be able to be happy without her friends living in the same town.

Remember that crazy Fiends from Dream Valley game that was floating around a while back? Well, it finally has a demo out! The general gameplay idea is to switch to different ponies, each with their own abilities. It also has some really neat physics to top it off!

The video quality is a bit low, but the actual audio works well enough!
Bronyville also has the audio up in HD over at their site.
Got two interesting projects for you all today! Apparently the newest issue of the hand drawn version of Fallout Equestria is out for those who are interested. Click above and check out the description for the rest of the comic.
Down below, we have an animatic set to The Moon Rises by Ponyphonic. It's a little rough, but it's pretty enjoyable so check that out as well after the break.
Twilight may be my favorite pony, but I do like AJ quite a bit as well so lets have an Applejack edition! Too bad she doesn't get as much love as the others, but maybe she can turn that around next season.
Plush time once again! Check after the break for more!

Description: Sometimes, when you've lost so much, when everything you do seems to come out wrong, and when you don't feel like anything but a failure, it can seem like there is no other option but to give up.All Links after the break!
But when one pony feels so lost, so inconsolable, so forlorn, that she makes a life-changing decision that almost leaves her shattered forever, it is up to her friends to bring her back.
When you lose something that you can't replace, when you love someone but it goes to waste, and when the tears come streaming down your face, is there anyone who you can turn to...
This time around on the ever entertaining comic compilation post, we have Chrysalis taking an obnoxios meme to a level beyond obnoxious meme, Johnny Bravo joining the dark side of the ponydom, and Woona being cute, because I know a bunch of you really like Woona for some reason. Click for full!

There is somewhat of an epidemic going on in the fanfiction section of the EQD submit box. Every 13-23 year old on the planet is writing stories about their adventures in ponyland. The big problem with these? They are always sad and depressing in real life, then the ULTIMATE HUMAN in Equestria. Lets do something different with this age old formula!
Blueshift has released a Choose Your Own Adventure pony story that has been automooned (We don't even need Celestia anymore) quite a few times now for being a "brony in Equestria" fic based solely on the title and chapter length. In fact, we never even looked at it. Time to make up for that!
Go forth my pony loving masses! Be one with Equestria! Marry Luna and Trixie! But do it in a controlled environment with danger around every corner.

This is just... amazing. I'm not exactly a fan of Owl City, but the editing and style of the video is ridiculously well done. I could see something like this actually being printed out as a giant picture book thing.
Anyway, I'll shut up now. Go watch it after the break!
