• Nightly Roundup #422

    Checking the results for tonight's header I was quite surprised to see votes for Cal pony were not only high, but actually won for tonight's header! It even spawned the picture above! I really appreciate it guys, I really do! I try to read your comments when I can and I always appreciate the nice things you say. Love you guys!

    Anyhow, for this, you all get cake along with your news! Check it all after the break and make sure to suggest your header for tomorrow night.

    Animated Cal pony is courtesy of the awesome VexPon! Thanks Vex! For a full bodied shot of Cal, which you may not have seen before, I'll include a pic after the break as well.

    Also, thank you to Blaze Feather, an incredibly talented 11 year old for our new banner! You've got a lot of skill young lady.

    Hi, I'm Cal Pony!

    My Little Portal Hits Kotaku

    Looks like pony has hit the pages of Kotaku yet again with the videos of My Little Portal. It's a fun little read and can be checked out here.

    Cake As Promised!

    (Not cake, but this license plate was given along with the cake above.)

    T-shirt of the Future Briefly Features Ponies

    Another night means another instance of pony making some sort of cameo! In a video for a supposed digital t-shirt, a random pony can be seen for just a quick second at the 0:45 mark. Once again, ponies continue to take over the world!


    Ponies Now on Canal5 Mexico!

    Looks like MLP has finally debuted on Canal5 in Mexico. This is certainly a time for a fiesta! Check out the details below:

    Mexico's Canal5 network premiered My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic this past tuesday as a part of their new morning lineup. Our Mexican amigos can now join Twilight Sparkle and the rest of her equine friends on Tuesday and Thursday mornings at 8AM. The broadcast does feature a SAP audio option so anypony who wishes to hear the original voice acting can do so. The show is also in HD in it's DTV format.

    By the way, many cities close to the border with Mexico (San Diego, CA for example) have Canal5 coverage! So if you live close to the border with Mexico you too can watch ponies in the morning before heading out for the day.

    Here's a page listing cities with Canal5 coverage: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canal_5_(Televisa_Network)

    Finally, a bit of Randomness...


    The Brony Bookclub - Episode 7

    Copy Paste:

    This week we had on Niaeruzu, author of Thrown Abroad and My Little Changeling: Friendship is Weird. We talked about what Slice of Life is, and the difference between Slice of Life and Normal fics. Sam and Niaeruzu discovered they're both anti-clop brothers in arms, and the guest and I realized we're both Butcher fanboys. Sam went all hipster and talked about fics nopony has heard of. Sam is scared of the guest's non-pony fic. And a hint to the special 10th episode. You can find this weeks episode here and email us here ([email protected])

    Successful Meetups

    Latvia Brony Meetup

    Copy Paste:

    The meetup was loads of fun! It started with us 14 bronies playing minigolf, which took us some time. Then we shared some of our art stuff which was quite impressive! Then we all headed towards a pizza parlor and in the end some bought more ponies.

    Purdue Bronies

    Copy Paste:

    Purdue Bronies had their second meetup last Saturday, with an impressive 13 bronies showing up (compared to 3 the previous week) We talked about favorite pony, and generally introduced ourselves.  We watched lesson zero and later that night went on a midnight campus raid to post as many pony posters as possible (from which we attained another 10 bronies on our site.)  If you are, or know a brony attending Purdue University in West Lafayette Indiana, please follow the link.  http://www.ponysquare.com/purdue
    2 Seasons 2 Days Event

    Copy Paste:

    Last weekend over 120 Bronies got together to celebrate the show that we've all come to know and love at the event known as 2 Seasons 2 Days. For 48 hours people from all over the East Coast watched every episode of MLP, sung Pony songs, had a rave, and consumed more energy drinks than they should have. This is the largest meet-up the Boston Bronies have ever had and it was absolutely amazing. There was no way I could condense this event down to a single picture and copy-paste, so here is the 2S2D Highlights video hosted by DudeBroBrony.
    And a bonus

    Friendship Express to EFNW 2013

    Copy Paste:

    Any Northern California bronies planning on going to Everfree Northwest next year?

    How about, instead of driving or flying, we take the train?

    Amtrak has a train, the Coast Starlight, going from the bay area to Seattle on a regular schedule, fully equipped with sleeping and dining cars. 

    Instead of urban sprawl, when you look out the windows you'll see picturesque coastlines and beautiful mountain skylines, and the best part is you'll be able to enjoy it instead of having to focus on the road.

    There's a bar, arcade, theater, cafe, and more—not to mention free WiFi (though we might get our own hotspot, just for the trip!).

    And to top it all off, as a group, we can get a section of the train all to ourselves.

    Head to the Bronies of Northern California discussion thread for more information, or add cybergeek94 on Skype to join the live discussion! 

    A lot of the details have yet to be worked out, so come join the discussion and get your two cents in.

    One last thing: the train goes all the way down to Los Angeles, so any SoCal bronies who are interested are welcome to join us!

    All aboard the Friendship Express!
