• Equestrian Inquirer #41

    The 41st edition of the Equestria Inquirer has been released! Copy paste, Deviant art, and Youtube versions can be found below!

    Paper Issue
    Copy Paste:
    It's a brand new season of the Equestria Inquirer, and our premiere episode is literally going to extremes. While Joe gets back to basics with some hard-hitting, side-splitting reports about the Equestria elections (and PONIES IN SPAAAACE!), TechRat goes in the complete opposite direction and tries outdoing the seriousness of Joe's China report with some fear-mongering of his own. Then LttMoose waxes poetic about the moon....and wanes, too! See what I did there? Waxes? Wanes? Moon?.....Wow, you guys are a tough crowd.

  • Papercraft: Sparkle Family and More!

    It's been a long time since our last papercraft post; I just don't see them very often! Tonight I've got a handful of papercrafts for those of you out there that love to make little paper ponies. The source of the templates needed to make them can be found (usually) at the picture's source, so just click if you're interested!

    Check out the rest after the break!

  • Comic: This Day Failure / Rule of Funny / The Day of Which I Dreamed

    You know, singing about your evil plan is one thing, but doing so in front of others might be a tad unwise. Oh well, it certainly beats the old fashioned villain monologue any day.

    Comic time folks! Click for full view.

  • Random Merch: Puzzle Books, Belts, Birthday Cards, Magazines, and White Celestia's Lines

    Time for more of that random merchandise you all love so much!  Hasbro's domination of the world continues along at an astounding rate.  It looks like we will soon have Twilight Sparkle plastered on to just about every object in our houses. 

    First off, we have a puzzle book (Going for 7.95 CDN) spotted in Calgary by an observant brony going by the name of Holly.  Apparently it was buried in a bin filled with g3 merch. Perhaps it's a scheme to get us newbie pony fiends to check out older generation stuff? Sneaky! 

    We also have yet another birthday card, this time with some Scootaloo.  She doesn't get nearly enough love.   Thanks to Meagen for that one (found below).

    Hot Topic  expanded their inventory with yet another belt, this time focusing on Rainbow DashSears has also picked up the Derpy Belt from a while back.  Thanks to Ginger Snap for digging that up. 

    And finally, Germany is being invaded by a yet another new magazine.  Our number one Italian reporter, Taliesin,  sent over a whole pile of images from his recent purchase of the thing.  We have posted the comics out of this one before, but never the normal pages.  Find all of those after the break, including a plastic diary thing that comes with it.  He also confirmed that the white talking Celestia Toy has the same lines as the pink one.  Apparently they got their hands on one early.  At least she is white, right?

  • Story Updates June 6th (Evening)

    Lots of story updates tonight! Now go read stuff.

  • Tara Strong Being Awesome (Again)

    A few days back, Tara Strong had to cancel her appearance at the Knoxville Comic and Anime show.  This was a pretty sad announcement for those that were planning on attending, including a disabled fan going by the name of Dragon.  After noticing the mother posting a comment on her Facebook wall about it, Tara did the best thing she could, she called up dragon and talked to him in Twilight Sparkle's voice. 

    Have the exact dialogue from their Livejournal account:

    Tara:  Is this Dragon?
    Dragon:  ...yes.
    Tara:  Do you know who this is?
    Dragon:  Yes, it's Twilight Sparkle.

    Dragon:  Tara, you are so talented with all those voices you do.
    Tara: Yes, yes I am, aren't I?

    Tara: (in Twilight's voice) I love you, Dragon.
    Dragon: (stunned, muttering) ...love you, too, Twilight.

    Tara: Dear Princess Celestia, today I got to talk to an awesome person named Dragon.
    Your faithful student, Twilight Sparkle.

    Tara and Dragon: Sunshine, Sunshine, ladybugs awake! Clap your hooves and do a little shake!

    Tara: (in Raven's voice) Dragon, if anyone bothers you about liking My Little Pony, I'll kick their butts.

    Can Tara Strong get anymore awesome?   This has since gone viral all over the internet.   Hopefully Dragon will get his chance to meet her face-to-face in the future, but until then, It's not often a voice actor actually calls you up directly!
  • Bronyville Episode 57 - EQD edition

    Another week, another bronyville! We actually showed up on this one livestreamed a few days ago. Have some copy paste!
    Dear Princess Celestia,
    I hope you are having a wonderful morning. I sent along a fruit basket this week. All I had were grapefruits and I hope you do enjoy them. I tend to prefer a little sour in the morning as it wakes me up rather well. This week on my show I had the EQD staffers Sethisto, Phoe, Cereal, and Calpain on for a little bit of Q&Neigh talk. We covered news, user questions, got serenaded in call ins, and detailed awesome shark and goat based versions of our favorite ponies.

  • This Spy Aria

    Cadence is sad.  Once again, she has been locked in the dungeon and impersonated.  It looks like the TF2 Spy is to blame this time around.  Poor girl...

    At least The Spy also sang This Day Aria. He really knows how to play the part!   Check it out after the break!

  • Drawfriend Stuff #469

    OVER 200 APPLES.  I would never want to paint that.

  • Cereal Velocity and Phoe Interview John De Lancie

    You might have heard of this guy John De Lancie! He played a pretty popular draconequus and is making this documentary about some group of nutjobs called bronies. Phoe and I thought it would be a good idea to ask him some questions to see if he was legit or not. Turns out he is. Imagine that.

    In this fifty-minute interview with John we talk about the similarities of the growing brony fandom to the Star Trek fandom that he was a huge part of, discuss his plans and hopes for the Bronycon documentary, and generally sit back and let him explain to us his vision of what he plans to accomplish with it. I invite you to sit back and do the same thing we did- bask and absorb. If you have doubts or questions about what the documentary could be, this will answer them.

    You can find the embed after the break!

  • PBS Idea Channel: Are Bronies Changing the Definition of Masculinity?

    What's this? A positive brony media release? How could it be? That never happens! The PBS idea channel over on Youtube has dropped a really neat 5 minute video on the pony craze, and asks the audience an important question: Are we changing Masculinity?

    What do you guys think? Are we getting big enough to actually have an effect?

    Check the video out after the break!

    And thanks to everyone who submit it.  I can't reply to all of you, but you all rock! 
  • Story: Nineteen Neighty-Four


    Author: Blueshift
    Description: Can a utopian paradise that preaches love and tolerance really make ponies happy? Does contentment really lie in free universal healthcare and open government?

    Twilight Sparkle is determined to resist this happy world on a matter of principle, and finds herself sneaking off with a mare called Trixie to hate and loathe each other in secret.

    Will their hate-nest go undetected? Or will they be forced to face the dangers of the Ministry of Love and the mysterious Room 101?

    Author: Nicholas Taylor

  • Story Updates June 6th (Morning)

    We have one fix from earlier, and three updates! Find them all below.

  • Story: Triple X (Update Complete!)

    [Shipping] [Comedy] [Slice of Life] [Kinda Sad] This story is a bit more mature than what we usually upload.  Think American Pie style humor.  The general fanfic readerbase tends to take these too seriously, so ignore the star rating.

    Author: ElMikkino
    Description: Sly Clop is a laid back slacker who runs one of Ponyville's only porn shops on Soresaddle Street. He is a regular customer of a "gentlecolt's club", the Knife and Apple, where he regularly shoots the breeze with Rainbow Dash, who's seen better days.

    One day, his only employee quits, and he hires Lyra as a new one. Almost immediately, his life becomes more interesting, and in the long run, better, as he begins this new awkward relationship with her.

  • Nightly Roundup #341

    I love this time of year. Everything is in bloom, the weather is warmer, and life abounds everywhere as we greet summer.  Enjoy it while it lasts my friends and make some good memories!

    Before we dive into the news I hope many of you were able to see Venus as it transited the Sun today. Crazy another opportunity won't come for another 100+ years!

    And now, without further ado, the news. Check it out after the break!
