You certainly are, Blossomforth. Too bad it ends up getting you tied up in knots on the training grounds!
News time guys, sorry it is a little later than usual. Saturday is my gaming night so I run a little late as a result.
Welcome to Equestria Daily's Tutorial Codex!

We start this one off with a new Sim Gretina track collabin with a female singer going by the name of Chichi, followed by a bit of classic rock dedicated to Spike and Rarity from M Pallente! Find both below!
1.) Love In Ponyville by M Pallante
2.) Sim Gretina feat. Chichi - What Your Friendship Means To Me/Ponylude
News? Not really. Entertaining for no apparent reason? I suppose. Google's search for "What is Applejack" has had it's image replaced with the pony. She is now a strong alcoholic beverage produced from apples. Or maybe the other way around? I don't rightly know.
Thanks Jordan for sending whatever this is classified as!
After months of intense music making from musicians across the fandom, the much anticipated Rainbow and Rooted album has finally been released! There are a whopping 55 songs included this time around, with a name your own price option for those of you on a tight budget. Have a blurb:
After a year since the booming success of their first fundraiser album, the makers of Balloon Party are back again bringing you another huge wave of hard hitting tracks! Much like its predecessor, Balloon Party, Rainbow and Rooted is a mixed genre album favoring Modern EDM and Rock. As with the previous fundraiser album Balloon Party, all donated proceeds go to funding the traveling and hotel expenses for your favorite musicians to perform at Bronycon! After a year of hard work, we are pleased to present you Rainbow and Rooted: Fours Fall Down!And head on over to their bandcamp page to pick it up!
And check out the promo video below the break!
And just like videos, music has been compiled and posted as well! Which songs dominated your playlists?! Which songs should dominate your playlists?! Hit them up below the break!
That needs to be displayed in an art gallery somewhere. Traditional art can be epic when done right. This fandom has such amazing talent.
Onward to art! We have a bunch of great stuff today. And a weekly reminder: be sure to click the source links for the full size, and watch/fav/comment when you get there!
MLP - Home Sweet Home

As many of you may be aware, Kiki Havivy, an incredibly brave little girl that has been in the lives of pony fans throughout the fandom for almost two years now, passed away yesterday after a long struggle with cancer. Tara Strong broke the heartbreaking news yesterday and the community has responded strongly with condolences and other wonderful gestures. The family has responded, thanking the community.
@tarastrong Thank you all- Your support allowed us to offer Kiki treatments options that extended her life 2 more years then expected.
— Kiki and Ami Havivy (@Kikiandami) June 8, 2013
For instance, the Brony Thank You Fund has decided to give all donations between June 8th and June 15th to cancer research in her honor as well as True Equestria Radio which is donating all funds they gather this weekend on their show. We have also received some videos for Kiki as well. To check all of those out, especially if you want to donate to BTYF to fight cancer, check after the break!
If you would like to offer your own condolences please contact Kiki's Twitter here. We would also like to do a collection of art and videos for the family, so please send any you create to [email protected] with the subject line reading Kiki Memorial - Insert Text Here for proper filing. After a couple weeks we'll put together what you all sent in and make a post for them. For OC information on Kiki's pony, you can find pictures of the little filly here.
Rest in peace, Kiki. You're in all our hearts.
We start this one off with a rap parody, because nothing can escape ponification, followed by a bit of Scootalove acoustic style, and finish with an awesome remix of Love is in Bloom. Check them all out below the break!
1.) TGSM - Remember The Mane
2.) MLP Original - Big Sister Now
3.) F3nning - Love Is In Bloom (Slow Flower Remix)
It looks like Magical Mystery Cure accomplished more than just decking Twilight Sparkle out with wings! Both Daniel Ingram and Steffan Andrews took the Leo award for best musical score on the episode.
Go toss them some congratulations!
Good news! You all get to join me in being lazy tonight. !!Rainbow Dash from Ponychan compiled up everything from her thread earlier and sent it over to us. Head on down below the break for a whole boatload of insight into our favorite pony show straight from the Fausticorn's mouth.
This has been going on for an hour, so chances are it will end soon, but Lauren Faust is currently answering questions for the masses over on Ponychan. I'll compile the answers later tonight if you are feeling lazy, but feel free to roll your dice until then!
