• Nightly Roundup #695

    Robotech along with the likes of DBZ and Sailor Moon were probably some of the first anime series I was exposed to when I was a kid. Good old Toonami! It has been quite awhile since I have seen anything related to Robotech and leave it to ponies to bring it back to the forefront of my mind.

    Anyhow, news time guys! Check it after the break.

    Fredericksburg Meetup

    On Saturday the Bronies of Fredericksburg met in Midlothian, Virginia to watch Equestria Girls (That was the closest theater location). Afterwards we met at the mall next door and at some lunch. There at the mall we also went on a quick trip to Hot Topic to browse some pony merch. Overall we had a 10 people attend the meetup, a rather small amount, but not bad considering the large traveling distance to the theater. Everyone had a blast and we look forward to our next meetup.

    We always encourage new members, so if you are from the Fredericksburg, Culpeper and Stafford areas, feel free to join us on our facebook page and/or google+ (see below). We also dont mind people from outlining areas either! We have future events planned such as a possible meet up at Kings Dominion Amusement Park!

    Seattle-area herd participates in the Dirty Dash

    On Saturday, June 22, 2013, twelve Seattle-area bronies participated in the South Sound Dirty Dash. This is a 5k race through mud involving many obstacles designed to get the runners absolutely filthy. Running along side men and women in wedding dresses, in various kinds of cosplay, and the occasional out-of-place serious runner, Team Cutie Mark Crusaders had a blast slogging through the mud while belting out songs like "We Are The Cutie Mark Crusaders," "Smile, Smile, Smile," and the theme song for the show, much to the delight of most of the other racers. No pony was left behind, though we almost lost Thrackerzod (a Regular Magical Unicorn) when his shoes disappeared in one mud pit. Unfortunately, by the end we were too covered in mud to tell whether we'd gotten our cutie marks in dirty dashing.

    Roanoke EqG Meetup

    It was a dark and stormy night. On June 22nd, 2013, at 1:00 in the afternoon, a few lonesome souls ventured forth to the Carmike 10 Cinema in Roanoke, Virginia, to brave the one movie that all of them wished, in futility, to ignore. Cursed by some strange amulet, however, they slowly filed into the small theater room and shuffled to their seats. Against their will, they were watching the dreaded Equestria Girls. As high-powered electromagnetic radiation washed over their terrified faces over the next hour and a half, some screamed in terror, others laughed maniacally, all the way to the end of the film. Then, as if on cue, all of them went full Snowflake as the credits ended. Afterwards, they leered at various cellular phones before shuffling away to spread the infection. Some gorged themselves on the flesh of innocent cows at a nearby Red Robin, while others slipped away, creepily muttering the cryptic phrase "We're going to Chick-Fil-A to eat Scootaloo." The world will never be the same.

    Dota 2 Brony Group - Iron Horseshoes

    Hello, everyone; a bit over a week ago we had a good response from the community, so I wanted to invite everyone to check out our own little brony Dota group, The Iron Horseshoes. We're not professional in the least (we have a tendancy to all-random in every game mode), but we're here to bring some fun into the game. Dota 2 Passes are going to be disabled soon, so if anyone was interested in trying the game out before it's released in batches (meaning that it won't always be available for anyone without the game), you can send a message to MaillouxB, and I'll be happy to send a pass your way (5 available). Anyone else who's familiar with Dota 2 or any other popular games is welcome to join us at http://steamcommunity.com/groups/IronHorseshoe. See you soon!

I also always include the links to games used in each video in the description (just thought I'd mention this as I still get asked about where I got the games).
