• Nightly Roundup #752

    Have a header with Sweetie and Button, they seem to be a popular pair. Sorry I didn't look at the votes the last time I asked for a header, but I promise to look this time barring an catastrophes and/or death on my end. So leave your header suggestion in the comments and I will take a look at them!

    Now, time for some news!

  • Analysis Compilation 1: AJ and RD's Swapped Elements of Harmony, and FIMPressions: Party of One

    Seth has given me the go-ahead to start making compilation posts of analysis videos that aren't as likely to invoke a massive discussion, so here's the first in the series! We've got the latest video from myself, and the latest from Bronycurious. In my video, I talk about how Applejack and Rainbow Dash were given the wrong Elements of Harmony; while in BC's, he gives his impressions of the classic season one episode, Party of One. Check out both videos after the break!

  • Antipodes Soundtrack Releases

    Once upon a time, in the early days of the fandom when Equestria Daily was a simple little aggregate site trying to hold onto the little scraps of the burgeoning Friendship is Magic community, a young man named PK began to pen a story named Antipodes. A tale of a dystopian future in which Celestia and Luna have vanished and the sky exists in chaotic disarray, the adventure was one of the very first fanfics to resonate with its readers on an appreciable scale. With its striking cover image and promise of adventure, Antipodes captured the imagination of many early readers, inspiring some of them to create their own works.

    Inspiration, as it turns out, takes many forms. Enter aspiring composer MindKog. Over the course of the past year, he has labored to take the chapters and events of Antipodes and turn them into something that could resonate in a new way. This music is largely atmospheric and orchestral, covering a large swath of musical space and mood, and giving enough different feelings throughout that just about anybody who's interested in instrumental work should find something to like here. Personally, I think it's a good set of tunes to write by.

    Find the album on bandcamp, or click below to see the release trailer and learn a bit more about what this is all about.

  • Animation: Pony's Creed - Sisterhoof

    Oh hey, we finally got a full on Assassins Creed crossover.  I was wondering when that would happen.  The animation here is a bit stiff, but the concept and overall makes up for it.  Head on down below the break for some Pony's Creed!

  • Parody 2 - Button's Mom (feat. HardCopy and ShadyVox)

    It may be a bit late, and that earlier Button's Mom parody already ran off with a harem of Button's mom cosplayers after going gold and signing a million record deals, but this new one shouldn't be missed! Dylan1kenobi, Shadyvox, and HardCopy collaborated it up and released their own rendition of the classic song.  Hit it up below the break.

  • Poll: Season 4 Has a Male Alicorn, How Do You React?

    That's actually a lot less WORST POSSIBLE THING'S than I thought.  I've always had a bias against the male ponies though with those square snouts, so I guess my vote didn't count. 

    Next poll: Recommend one in the comments! My creativity died while clicking cookies.

  • Newbie Artist Training Grounds III - Day 12

    Look, sometimes I reach my limits in objectivity, ok? I'm sorry (I'm not sorry). Last night's prompt was, fittingly, about art and performing great acts. A great act is a strange thing, though. Sometimes it's not about producing a work of peerless quality to be marveled at. In fact, most of the time I'd say that's true. Because what I find impressive is when people step out of their comfort zones to deliver every night and improve because they thought they could be better. Well, here we are. 292 master ponies later, and my hat is off to you. Er... if I had a hat. It's a metaphor! Our latest gallery gives us a grand event total of 5009 pictures. Tell me: how far do you think we can take this?

    A reminder, today is your last day to get in late entries in our first makeup gallery! If you want to do another piece for a theme gone by or send in one you couldn't do the day of, this is your last chance until we open the second gallery at the 2/3 mark of the event. I'll link it here one last time. Your deadline is the same as tonight's prompt.

    Come one, come all! It's Open Night at the Galleria of Ponies, and everyone's invited! What wonders will you witness? What do people think a masterpiece looks like? I think you'll find some very interesting answers inside. You guys keep doing things to challenge my perceptions of what's possible with a prompt, and I love you for it. My deepest regret is that I don't have the power to comment on everything. I promise, I do what I can.

    A proper prompt appropriates plenty of pleasant possibilities, pleasing to present, purvey, or (purportedly) to peruse. Presently, do you ponder what presumption your participation in this prompt precipitates?  Prodigious! Draw a pony putting on a play/Draw a pony performing. Submit all entries here by 11:59 PM, Pacific time on Tuesday, August 27. Prepare!
