    Mine's Got Rocks In It

    As an earth pony I can understand being overlooked a little bit in favor of both pegasi and unicorns alike, but earth ponies can still be pretty neat too as is demonstrated in the fanzine Mine's Got Rocks In It. Check out the full details of this cute zine below.

    "Mine's Got Rocks In It is a high-quality earth pony themed art zine! With submissions ranging from comics and visual art to poetry and prose, it covers a wide breadth of artistic endeavors, with something for everybody. Produced a seriously talented bunch of well-known pony artists, this book is the ultimate MLP art piece. The professionally printed book features over sixty pages of glorious full color for you to enjoy. MGRII is debuting at Equestria LA with a high quality limited print of 100 copies run ready to buy at the convention. Several of the artists will be attending as well, so make sure to say hi and get your copy signed!

    The book will be offered at a convention special price of $20, and a special copy signed by the contributors will be available at the EQLA Charity Auction. So make sure to head down to EQLA Dealer table H3 (Ponywise's table) to get your copy.

    After the convention, you will be able to order it online for $25 per copy. For now, you can email ponyzine@gmail.com to ensure a spot on the waiting list for online orders."

    Successful Meetups

    Spaniard Hooves Meetup

    Copy Paste:

    Last saturday 4th of Mach, some members of the spanish brony community "Spaniard Hooves" went to an exposition of some My Little Pony artwork promoted by "Casa del Libro". The artist was Veganya (the girl with the blue hair), an student of "Joso" school of visual arts.
    She was about to teach some little girls how to draw ponies when our little herd silently appeared. We took a seat and started to draw and have fun.
    After this event, she gladly spent about an hour talking with us about her work and other MLP stuff.

    The drawings were lovely, you can see them at her deviantart: http://veganya.deviantart.com/gallery/34125199
    And either you live or not in Spain, you will be gladly welcome in our community: http://www.spaniardhooves.com/

    The Attack on Canterlot Audiobook Auditions

    Copy Paste:

    Hello. My name is bobby165324. Now, you may know me as the host of the game show My Little Millionaire, but that's not the reason I'm here today. I am working on an audio fanfiction (or a radio play as some call it) and I need some voice actors. Here's a basic summary of the story:
    Your name is Cobalt. Your business has finished their bi-monthly team meet up in Canterlot, and you are flying home to Manehatten. You've just finished going through security at Canterlot International Airport, and you are waiting for the tram to arrive to take you to your gate. Meanwhile, at the Canterlot Castle, the wedding of Shining Armor and Princess Mi Amore Cadenza is about to start, and the airport is decorated with wedding stuff. But, unknown to you or anypony else, Canterlot will soon be thrown into a state of chaos, when the Changelings break through the shield.
