• Nightly Roundup #647

    Sorry for the rather erratic Roundup schedule you guys! Now that finals are over they should start settling back into their normal routine again. Anyhow, have some Gilda for the header tonight as there really isn't a lot of cool pics of her out there.

    Check out the news after the break!

    Ponibooru Film Night

    Copy Paste:

       Poster artist DaisyHead here. The movie of the week is Ferngully: the last Rain Forest. You know, cause Australia is the only continent that has one. All those documentaries about South America are lies. I'm pretty sure a lot of people are familar with this one, be it they watched it all the time as a kid or they were introduced to it via Nostalgia Critic. For those of you who haven't heard of Ferngully, it's a movie about forest conservation with a message that's as subtle as a brick to the face. A young fairy named Chrysta lives in the jungles of Australia, living a peaceful life along with her tribe, when three Australian loggers, with a New Yorker additude, are sent to chop down trees, They incidentally release an ancient evil called Hexxus, the eldritch love child of Discord and the Smooze, and becomes more powerful by consuming the pollution produced by humans. If Hexxus doesnt make you feel dirty, then his voice actor Tim Curry will. One of the loggers is made small, and must learn to appreciate nature and help stop Hexxus from destroying Australia, Cause frankly, if the entire continent is turned into a choking furnace, I think someone would notice.

    Hosts for this week are:
    Feral Socks
    Pony Cat
    Harlequin Jester

    Pony on Cracked...Again!

    Cracked has once again featured pony on their site, this time placing it in a list detailing Pop Culture Questions Answered by Super Fans. It's typical Cracked material and they use the ancient MLP Physics Presentation from almost two summers ago so they are a little late to the party. Anyhow, if you'd like to check it out, follow the link below.

    Ponies Briefly Mentioned in SteamPipe FAQ

    Ponies and Steam have had a long relationship during the fandom's history and this little bit of information would indicate that relationship is nowhere near fading away:

    If the mod you want to use is only available in a .zip format, then unzip it into a subdirectory under the game's custom folder. For example, if the .zip contains custom player models that look like (heaven forbid) ponies, and one of the files is materials/models/player/scout/scout_head.vtf, then you might make a dirctory such as tf/custom/i_love_ponies. You should unzip the mod such that the custom scout head texture ends up at tf/custom/i_love_ponies/materials/models/player/scout/scout_head.vtf.

    Got to love the guys at Steam!

    Groups/Meetups/Guilds Looking for More

    Patch Ponies

    Copy Paste:

    In light of recent events, I've come to realize that there are a lot of people that are teased, bullied and driven out of local brony groups. Most seek companionship from other bronies online and never get to find out if they have any friends nearby that are just like them. My friend and I have started up an anti-bully group on facebook called "Patch Ponies" for victims or local brony group teasing and bullies.
    We would like to promote our group and help find other victims in the world to join. Perhaps members will find out that they have people closer to them than they thought that are just like them.
