    Don't Forget the Magic - Sim Gretina PMV

    Always nice to start something off with a little music! I've always loved Sim Gretina and I still have his version of BBBFF stuck in my head.

    Arkansas Tech University Prints Ponies

    Ponies in print sure has a nice ring to it. Makes me glad to see them continue to pop up in the media! At this point I'd be surprised if we don't see pony appearing in some form of news media during the week.

    Halloween Fiction Contest

    I keep forgetting that Halloween is quickly approaching! Thank goodness I have all these reminders from you guys telling me that I should really buy some candy soon. Anyhow, a fiction contest has popped up for those of you wishing to test your writing mettle! Check below for details.

    In the spirit of Nightmare Night, Twilight of Equestria forums are having a friendly contest to add lots of spookiness to the world in which we play. 

    That world is Refuge: a place in which Equestria is the stuff of legend. One day soon, however, the ponies of Refuge may learn the truth about its existence.This is a site where weirdness abounds around a spectrum of villains, anti-villains, anti-heroes, and regular ponies just trying to live their lives. If you ever felt like writing stories in a site where creativity is highly valued, this is the RP site for you.

    Or, y'know, just show up and write something really scary for the free art and bragging rights. It's all good.

    Pony 411 - Episode 7: Canterlot Gardens

    It's time once again for the Pony 411 podcast! In this week's episode, we talk of the official comic having a launch party, a new brony gamer group, Jerry Springer and... there was something else... oh yeah, that whole season three finally getting a release window thing.

    Afterward we turn it over to Four String as he talks about his experience at Canterlot Gardens. He shares quite a few fun stories, including meeting Andrew W.K.

    Finally, we delve into the usual fan content, including artwork, music, and fanfiction. Yes, fanfiction finally comes back this week.

    The intro and outro this week are from Flim Flam March by DJBadjuju:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QWlwTBnD3yg

    P.S. Apologies for Four String's microphone, it decided to start dying in the middle of recording. But all is well, he'll have a new one soon.

    You can also listen to the podcast on iTunes or Libsyn

    Please pony responsibly.


    Successful Meetups

    Argentina Brony Wedding!

    Copy Paste:

    This past September 28th we celebrated the first brony wedding in Argentina. It was a beautiful, very emotive ceremony with plenty of brony attendance. The party went on from 22:00 to 7:00 hs starring drinks, brony music, regular music, cakes, cosplayers playing Discord, Fancypants, Rainbow Thrash (Metal Rainbow Dash) and Pinkie Pie. There were also party games and carnival dancing and Gangnam style dancing and so much more.

    The cake dolls were custom made ponysonas of the bride and groom made by one of the bronies attending. All in all, it was a beautiful event, brimming with fun and love, something all of us are proud to have been a part of.
