• Music of the Day #161

    It's too bad they don't like pinkamenaing Pinkie Pie.  She looks really good with straight hair.  I think I've said that a million times.

    Have some music! We have nine again.  Get them all below.

  • Discussion: Which Classical Movie Would You Like to See Ponified?

    I'm stealing this one from one of the poll recommendations over here.  Once again, that hypothetical blank check tossing Hasbro executive has given you an unlimited budget.  The project this time around? You need to choose a classic movie (anything before year 2000) and ponify it! There is one little addition though:  They need to continue selling existing toys, so ponies from the show have to swap out with characters in whatever movie you choose. 

    Grab your favorite classic movie and substitute the characters out with any pony you want from FiM.  If you want Twilight Sparkle to be the new terminator, or Spike the new Austin Powers, then go for it!  

    Hit the comments up with your revamped cast list. 
  • PMV/Typography: Pinkie Pie / Ready or Not / Need Your Love

    Seems like every PMV post has at least one typgraphy thing in it these days.  Start with one of those, followed by one of those oldschool AMV style PMV's, and finish with some Equestria Girls.  All below as always. 

    1.) Pinkie Pie - Typography [GuitarBrony] [X3D's animation]
    2.) ℝeady or ℕot (ʜᴇʀᴇ ɪ ᴄᴏᴍᴇ) ❃ [ᴍʟᴘ♘ᴀᴍᴠ / ᴘᴍᴠ]
    3.) [EGMV] - Need Your Love

  • Wallpaper Compilation #99

    Celestia needs more love.  I blame your lack of interest in her on the lack of episodes devoted to her.  Hopefully season 4 changes that. 

    Onward to wallpapers!

  • Game: The Reddit Game

    Upvote ponies! I think this is the only instance where I can safely say there is WAY TOO MUCH PONY.  At least once the music picks up.  It's a super simply shooter, but this is a super simple :30 slot. 

    Go play it over here.
  • Week In Pony / August 17th, 2013

    We're lucky, in a way. Some fandoms don't have the benefit of such an active community when the show isn't airing. You can check in on our community at any given moment and find something to inspire you, something to make you laugh, or something to drop your jaw. The amount of news to filter through can be overwhelming at times, and at Equestria Daily we've had the privilege of showing you what we think is exceptionally neat, even if we get some flak for our selection process sometimes. I would call it a labor of love, but when we love this stuff as much as you guys do, it's hardly labor. Keep making neat things. We love it.

    That's only sort of an intro for this week's video- and hell, I've said it all before- but I felt like saying it again anyway.

    Check after the break for today's Week In Pony. As promised, this series will continue. I've incorporated a few suggestions from you guys, and hopefully you like the result and this turns into something that you guys can catch every week and be well-informed.

  • Thoroughly Analyzing "Look Before You Sleep"

    I must apologize for the lack of analysis videos lately; both by myself, and postings of ones by others. Preparing for, going to, and making videos out of Bronycon kept me much busier than it should have. Luckily, EQD kept its timeslots well filled in the meantime. Things are calming down for me and the site though, so I'll be making and posting more videos again~! Here's my analysis of Look Before You Sleep. Enjoy it after the break!

  • Newbie Artist Training Grounds III - Day 2

    Blink. Blink blink. Greetings, everyone! Welcome back! My name is Phoe, and this is the Newbie Artist Training Grounds. Yes, I, me, myself, and Phoe, your once and future overseer for this grand tutorials. After much waffling, I have come once more from the shadows to be your personal cheerleader and commandant for the remainder of the training grounds. Accept no substitutes! Except for that Calpain guy, he's pretty cool (and will be a very large part of the event still, so keep an eye out!)

    We're staring, we're glazed over, we're motionless, and most importantly we are on this day 629 ponies strong! So let's talk for a minute about how wonderful that is. The decision to step into the NATG is not an easy one, nor is the process I'm asking you to move through very easy. It's long and it's tedious and you've got schedules to keep up with, and all of that makes every single submission you choose to send along a spectacular accomplishment. I look at each and every one, and I always, always, always love you for taking the time to do it. 

    Now then, down to brass tacks. You've taken the first step on a long road, and it's time to think about some ponies doing the same. But let's get one thing straight here - although I say 'pony' for tradition's sake, anything and everything from the FiM universe is fair game. OCs, minor characters, backgrounders, gryphons, dragons, it's anything that appeals to you. I urge you to think creatively and bend the theme to your will. Drawing is creativity! Make it your own. And so! Today your task is to Draw a pony walking OR! Draw a pony on a journey. Submit all entries to this compiler by 12:00 AM Pacific Standard time tomorrow (August 18), and show me you've got what it takes to follow this road where it leads.

    For now though, let's enjoy our sweet snacking, glazeariffic gallery. Featuring, yes, many a donut. Delicious!
