• Nightly Roundup #735

    Yeah, random header I know, but I made a promise to someone some time ago I would use it and Cal keeps his promises. So here's to you Forrest! Sorry it took so long, heh.

    Anyhow, onward to the news! Quite a lot of it tonight so let's dive right in, shall we?

    Tonight's Stories

    Ponibooru Film Night

    Poster artist DaisyHead here. We will be watching an extra special movie this week. It will be The Nine Lives of Fritz the Cat. The
    Hated and unofficial sequel to the Fritz the Cat movie. Known for being the worlds first X rated cartoon, it fails to prove that it
    deserves this title when Drawn Together exists as well as being rumored to be the foundation of the Furry fandom as it exists today.
    After the first Fritz movie, Robert Crumb hated it so much he had Fritz murdered to end the comic series forever. But a sequel
    was made to that movie depicting the lives of Fritz never before seen. Without Robert Crumbs blessing of course. Viewed as the
    most hated of the Fritz the Cat works, fans of the comic grew to hate it. It's a skewed movie about Fritz remembering the events of his
    past lives after getting high, and the tumult of the world around him. From racial stereotypes, religious blasphemy, and to jokes at the
    third reichs expense, it still proves itself to be a horrible mess of a movie. NSFW cautionary warning.

    Hosts for this week will be:
    Feral Socks
    Harlequin Jester
    Pony Cat

    LOCATIONS WILL BE HERE: http://www.livestream.com/derpiboorumovienight?t=958481

    Brony Aerospace - The Final Frontier

    I actually met these guys at Everfree Northwest and they were a cool bunch! Check out what they are about below and pay them a visit and give them support if you can. Sounds like an ambitious project.

    Brony Aerospace is a privately funded company that focuses on putting rockets in space. The relatively small team hopes to build and launch both manned and unmanned rockets into orbit of the Earth. The company was founded in late 2012 by five men, they wanted to take their love of the brony fandom and of space and combine the two. The company aims to give the more scientific bronies more involvement in the community, as well as artists. Almost all funds collected by Brony Aerospace will go towards helping other brony based projects, and fund further space exploration projects. Brony Aerospace is based in Ontario, Canada.

    The company is starting out with a bang, currently working on large engine testing and finding new ways to make hybrid engines. Brony Aerospace is currently working on creating a personal rocket pack titled “SC-1 Chicken”. They are developing a propulsion system for their suborbital rocket, capable of putting a load of 200kg at an altitude of 500km. The team at Brony Aerospace are highly trained in chemistry and engineering.

    Brony Aerospace has a website set up so you can see the team and missions. Visit bronyaerospace.net for all the details on current mission statuses.

    MLP: GRIFFON KINGDOMS - Role Playing Board

    The war has begun... Nearly twelve years ago the griffons invaded Equestria. Canterlot fell, the Princesses and their heroes scattered; and all seemed lost after eight long years of battle. Equestria's once-great cities now rest in ruin under a gloomy sky full of rain and sadness. The light that had once shined down on Equestria had long burned out... Or, so it would seem. Four years after the war was concluded officially, and Year 0 began, a rebel force was building under the rubble and sorrow of the streets above. An underground force built out of ponies, zebras, some griffons, and every other species still residing and loyal to Equestria has been gathering, building up their resources, and planning to retake their country.

    Year 4; four years since the great war ended, and four years under Griffon Kingdom rule. The ponies and residents of Equestria have been oppressed, brutalized, hunted, murdered, and even eaten by the griffon tyrants. Enough is enough. The time has come to rise up and take back Princess Celestia's country! It begins now, with you! Choose your side... Will you choose to fight for your freedom! Or will you choose to crush the rebels, and seek the power and riches which follow... You choose now. Register today!
