• Nightly Roundup #613


    Sorry for the lack of a Roundup last night guys! I sort of bombed due to complete exhaustion and simply needed some sleep. But that at least means you get a longer Roundup tonight as a consequence so make sure to check it all out after the break.

    Nashville Bronies

    Copy Paste:

     The Nashville Bronies had an early 21+ St. Patty's (Berry Punch's) Day celebration on March 16th, 2013.  We all met up at a dive called Santa's Pub! A fun and cheap karaoke bar run by a couple, which the husband looks and is called Santa while running the bar and Mrs. Claus helps run the karaoke and the door. We all sat down talked, drank, sang a few songs and had a wonderful time! We were even able to go up as a whole to sing Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen. Everyone had so much fun that when we all went to leave, we all decided Waffle House was a better idea.  We end the night around 12:00 am and all can't wait for next year!

    The Trotting Dead Project

    Copy Paste:

    • This going to be the first-and-only fan-made episode of a crossover between "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic" and "The Walking Dead", otherwise known as "The Trotting Dead". 
    • Voice actors are set, but I am still looking for animators, background artists, concept artists who can design Zombie Ponies, and people who can design puppets for Zombie Ponies, Big Mac, Shining Armor, and Cranky Doodle Donkey. 
    • I'm still worried about using "copyrighted characters" from Hasbro an DHX Media (even though this short episode is completely and utterly a fan-based concept – made by fans – for fans – and intended for free distribution for the promotion of My Little Pony) and the whole "Walking Dead" setting/theme concept created by Robert Kirkman. 


    • My YouTube channel is www.youtube.com/user/ilovetangled2010 where my videos/updates about "The Trotting Dead" can be found.
