• Nightly Roundup #479

    Good morning, Equestria Daily! Coming to you live from the EqD headquarters right here on the internet, Xyro is here to bring you the most current in late breaking news and weather. It's a beautiful Friday morning, and if you aren't out in it, you're probably sane because it's like 3AM my time and I should probably get some sleep.


    Nah, more pony.

    Drifting Derpy!
    As a car guy myself, I can appreciate this.

    Hi, my name is Dave Adams, I’m 28, a former US Marine, motorsports enthusiast and above all, a Brony. My primary focus in motorsports is currently drifting and I have been doing so for the last 4 years. My current vehicle of choice is a 1987 Chrysler Conquest TSi that is undergoing a build to emulate Derpy Hooves as her main livery. Why, Derpy? Well I feel, the car is very fitting (other than the color) in that it tends to be a bit of a social outcast among the car community but it’s loving, adorable and incredibly charming. A link to her Facebook page can be found here. There, you’ll find more information on the build, be able to follow her progress in motorsports and be able to actively participate in giveaways. I hope you enjoy her as much as I do! I want to do my very best to represent the Brony community in the best way possible. Love and Tolerance will be the new theme of drifting! Thank you!

    The Brony Initiative
    Welcome back to the newest episode of The Brony Initiative podcast!
    This week, we had a bit of a long week, so me and Mahamojo decided to simply do a two-man show, talking about some very exciting MLP:FiM Season 3 news, talking about a very interesting update on Shout Factory's MLP:FiM Season 1 DVD set, bringing in several MMOs for discussion, and finally a bunch of other pony news!
    We hope y'all enjoy the episode!

    Successful Meetups

    Abbotsherd Meetup
    The Abbotsherd pony group had another meetup. We decided that spending $100 on pony merch was a good idea, and went to McDonald's to unbox said merch. It was a lot of garbage.


    Budapest, Hungary Meetup
    30 people were there, approximately. It was one of the country's biggest meetups, lasted around 6-7 hours with much hookah and cider of course.


    NC Halloween Meet
    ncbronies.com showed classic pony solidarity last Saturday by going out to Fayetteville, NC's "Stoney Point Trail of Terror." The maze itself was built by the local fire department with help from local volunteers, and had 3D effects, an entire house, TONS of actors, and a drag show! We even gave hugs to the zombies and monsters haunting the line. What more could a pony want? All the proceeds from the maze go to helping save more lives-- this year, it goes to new equipment for the fire fighters.
