Just a banner for the header tonight because while it didn't work too well with our new parallax banner scheme it was still pretty neat! Thanks to Obsequiosity for the banner!
Now, onwards to the news my friends!
I give it another two or three months before I'm back into League of Legends. It's impossible to stop playing that one forever.
We have 12 songs this time around for all of you to dig into! Get them below!

As part of the new CNN series "Parts Unknown", Anthony Bourdain samples horse meat once again. Following his trend last year on the Travel Channel, we got another shoutout to Rainbow Dash.
Hit it up below the break! Thanks to Anthony (A different one) and everyone else for the heads up!
iTunes has previews up for both the 2013 Annual edition and the 12th comic in the main series. Expect both of these to release on the 30th! Head on down below the break for all the pages in higher resolution.
Sunset Shimmer is actually pretty badass as a pony!

Airing in less than a half an hour from this post is the Brony Documentary for those that have the Logo channel (7:00 Pacific). Their announcement is over here if you are curious.
Thanks to everyone for the reminder!
Do you remember where you were on the morning of September 17, 2011? I sure do, and it means a lot to me.
Contrary to uneasy fears, pony didn't go away with the inter-season hiatus. If anything, that hiatus was the greatest thing that could have happened for the show, while Equestria Daily surpassed 40,000,000 hits just two days before the season premiere. With so many of us coming to the show in the summer, The Return of Harmony, Part 1 was the very first episode of MLP we watched live -- me included.
And wasn't it something? When Rainbow Dash corralled those cotton candy clouds, you could tell the animators had really stepped up their game. When Celestia mentioned Luna in her exposition, everyone cheered in some degree for their favorite neglected-until-now moonbutt of the night. If only we knew what was in store for her three weeks later!
Then we had Discord. Hypotheses and spoiler images of his appearance before the episode aired sowed just as much chaos in IRC channels and dA groups as the master draconequus himself! Recruiting Q to voice his cartoon counterpart just went to show how much noise this show made back then, and its fans were only getting #LOUDER (go 'Hawks). How could we not love the show after they threw this in? Or this?
Sure, it hurt to wait for Part 2 to air the following week. If anything, though, that just gave everyone time to update and reinforce their headcanons, and it wasn't long until 300 lucky people in a hot Chinatown, Manhattan room joined Jayson Thiessen and Seth in celebrating the triumph of these little horses over the forces of chaos two hours ahead of the rest of the world. The success of that gathering alone gave people ideas -- but that's a story for another time.
Everything changed with this episode, including the passing of the HD ripping baton to a foxy little outfit named Xyro. Find a non-taken-down rip below the break, and remember where you were all that time ago.
I'm looking forward to the mystical creatures we will see in season four. Can we get some mindflayers and beholders? I need these to be happy.
Anyway, get some art below!

Description: Ditzellia Esmerelda Doo is an average mare with a long name, and typical job.Through Storm and Snow (New Part 5!)
She also has a not so average eye condition, that brings pain in the form of a name given by other ponies. But
when unusual things start to happen, a stranger makes an offer that can turn the tables for our favorite mail mare.
Events take place before, during and after "The Return of Harmony" Episodes.

The official Halo 4 Facebook page has tossed this image of Fluttershy up in their forge art section. I really need to get the 4th one at some point. My poor xbox hasn't gotten much love in a while. If only it's performance wasn't 10 years old...

However, when Granny Smith praises Applejack for her efforts that day, a memory that the farm mare had tucked away resurfaces to haunt her.All But Two
At some point, everypony has to face the truth, no matter how much it hurts to do so. For Applejack, it's the fact that not everypony had been at the reunion that day. All but two had been there. All but two...
