    I've always been quite impressed by impersonators, especially those with a wide range of voices! The lady above sure does have that talent I must say.

    Project Interlude - Dusk's Dawn Update

    Remember Project Interlude? You know, the group that was planning to release a full and 100% fan-made episode between seasons 2 and 3?

    Well guess what, we are still alive! However, we are now using “Interlude Productions” for the studio name and for our crew that consists of people from all over the world! The episode will be entitled “Dusk’s Dawn” and should be released in September.

    Synopsis: Strange and unusual events have been occurring around Ponyville, so it’s up to six unlikely heroes to figure just what is going on!
    (any resemblance with ponies -living or animated- is purely coincidental)

    We have recently released several things pertaining to the project:

    - An awesome trailer
    - A gallery of some of our non-spoilerish backgrounds, here
    - A video about our animation process
    - More about us in this interview transcript made by BronyTalk on BronyTV (who are cool guys that interview bronies and aren’t afraid of anything!)

    And more boring stuff in our website/FAQ like the release date, who we are and why you should totally join the crew and help us (we’re hiring! we’re paying muffins!).

    If you are interested please visit our website and contact us!

    Online Newspaper Diario de Noticias Reports on Bronies

    Another online newspaper has reported on the brony phenomenon, this time being Diario de Noticias. Check out the original article here and the translation below.

    "Grown men addicted to 'My Little Pony'"

    "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic" has some unusual and fervorous spectators. They're "bronies", growm men in love with the series, broadcasting in Portugal through Panda (children channel)

    The cartoon series "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic" was created by Hasbro Studios and DHX Media to teach the balue of friendship to 7-11 year old girls. But the story of the six colorful female ponies has been attracting the attention of an unlikely audience: men with ages between 15 and 40 that call themselves "bronies" (bro, abbreviation of irmão, and pony).

    Through a study published by Herd Census, a website created by a fan of the show, 85% of its admirers are men and are in average 21 years old. A phenomenon that has expression on Facebook where, per example, two pages called Bronies gatheres, in just a year and a half of existence, almost 60 thousand and 20 thousand fans.

    "We're just fans of the series and we like to talk to each other. That's it." explained Manuel (ficticious name) to DN, the creatorand admin of the only portuguese page about bronies. This young 18-year old adult fell in love with the story of the little ponies in 2011 , when he watched an episode from the first season of the three shows already made. Afterwards, he discovered that there was a community of people that also liked it" and searched "to interact with other members." "New technologies are a big help. I usually contact with other "bronies" through Skype or Messenger (IM)", he stated.

    As the men and adults that are, fans of a show designed to entertain little girls, the bronies are often target of prejudice. "It's true there exists intolerance, but you can tell it more online than between family and friends. The uninformed people don't understand this fascination and label us as gays." tells Manuel, intern at a nursing home."

    Successful Meetups

    Bronies of CZ and SK

    Copy and Paste:

    Brohoof from central Europe

    28th of July, beggining at 5pm, Bronies from Czech Republic and Slovakia organized second big meetup. The ammount of attendees amazed us. With almost 70 people, this was the biggest brony meetup we ever held.
    Thanks to great, initiative people in our community, the whole event was everything but boring. Well prepared team game of Brony "Jeopardy" with tricky questions from both series and nice pony prices even for losing teams, pony DDR which occupied second room to late night hours, drawing session with fellow drawfriends, sing-along of pony songs, Derpy Hooves providing us with almost never ending flood of muffins and Pinkie Pie seconding her with delicious cupcakes, amazing Fluttershy cake…
    The only thing that made the last of us leave toward our homes was the fact that at 6am, even the great staff of bar Tečka had to go to sleep.

    Just Another Pony Server

    Copy Paste:

    "Just Another Pony Server", is anything but another pony server. The server acts as a home for many different game types, examples being Pony Maps, Zombie Fortress, and the "Other" category which includes fun games like Mario Kart, Balloon Races, and Wacky Races. Stock maps have been included as a voting option too, so that way we have the ability to have competitive games if need be. Soon, Models will also be incorporated, which will include pony skins that our users can choose from. (EX: Rainbow Scout). The server also contains music, which may be activated by any admin currently present on the server. I am hoping that you will find this adequate, and I will also include a link to our group page below, as well as pictures we have taken to show the variety of maps of which you can expect on our server. Thank you.
