• Nightly Roundup #814

    How about some lovey-dovey ponies for tonight? Sure stands in sharp contrast to killing necromorphs in Deadspace for the past five hours (hence why this is late).

    Have a great night guys and have fun at Nightmare Nights for those of you taking off for it in the next day or two.

  • Music of the Day #213

    Fluttershy in socks.  You can't not header things with this combo.

    Get some music of the day below, 12 in all.

    Thanks to Steven for the heads up.

  • 50/66 Days of Pony - MMMystery on the Friendship Express

    It occurs to me that if the pegasi ever wanted to cripple major ground transportation in preparation for their aerial assault on Ponyville, all they'd have to do is take out this one train. Maybe there are multiple trains that look exactly the same, though. Maybe for every toy train they sell the train gains a level, like Cookie Clicker if instead of cookies it was a giant pink friendship train that routinely carries the Harmony Element bearers around when at least three of them don't need it. Friendship Clicker, get on it guys.

    Keeping with the theme of old movie throwbacks- if that is indeed a theme, and if it isn't, don't tell me- even the title of this episode is a throwback to the 1934 crime novel Murder on the Orient Express, written by Agatha Christie. Instead of dealing with a murder, though, the mane six just have to deal with someone eating giant desserts. Fun fact, even though Applejack was the only investigated pony not to admit to eating any of the cake, she was originally planned to, but the scene got cut for time. Lucky break, applebutt.

    Be sure to don your bowler hat and catch Celestia: Dessert Fetishist after the break.

  • MLP Facebook - The Most Powerful Magic of All is Friendship!

    A new post popped up on the MLP Facebook page with the image above.  They didn't label it as a season 4 promo in any way, but you never know! At least we got some Trix, which means we have a post on EQD! 

    (I'm not complaining if Trixie confirmed for season 4 though!)
  • Drawfriend Stuff #977

  • Artist Spotlight: Rariedash / Labba94 / smartMeggie

    Welcome art fans to another edition of the Artist Spotlight! We're proud once again to present to you a small range of artists today that show some amazing talent in a variety of different fields, whether it be digital, comic, or traditional!

    As usual, these posts are in similar style to the Tumblr Spotlights, a group of 3-4 artists will be spotlit each entry along with a small short description along with a small selection of their artwork! In order to make this feature work though we need people to suggest artists to us so make sure to send artists you think need some exposure to [email protected]. Please also include a short biography I can work with as well as what medium you work in most.

    What sort of artists count? Suggestions should follow these criteria:
    • No clop or extensive gore galleries as those typically violate our content guidelines. If the artist has a safe for work gallery separate from their not safe for work stuff they or their fans can submit the safe for work gallery. If there is a mix of SFW/NSFW on a gallery the decision whether or not to include them will be judged on a gallery to gallery basis.
    • Don't be afraid to spotlight yourself as well as others!
    • Artists of all types accepted -vector, OC, traditional, digital. As long as it is pony and of quality it has a chance of being spotlit. 
    Now on to the artists!

  • Poll Results: Best Cutie Mark Crusader

    I remember wayy back a few years ago when Scootaloo won this poll.  We also only had a couple thousand voters.  I'll admit, I'm in the Belle park too.  She really is the best CMC. 

    Onward to the next poll: Dug up from that last poll post - Which alternate world where a villain won would you like to see?  Get it on the side bar. 
  • Comic: Age Restricted / Sunset Shimmer

    I can't decide on comics anymore. I think my humor bone broke.

    We also have the issue of it being difficult to round up three at a time right now without these being ridiculously late.  Do you all want three at a time? Or do you want them dumped asap?  I suppose I could just start using :30 slots.  Can't hurt right? Anyway, get some comics, the first with Flutters, and the second a continuation of Equestria Girls with Trixie level narcissism. 

  • Spotlight Vocal Music: Crystal Heart

    There isn't a whole lot of music flooding the submit box lately for whatever reason, so have a single!  The closest thing I could relate this to would be the old punk rock bands from the 90's and early 2000's.  Blink 182 style! I could be completely missing the mark though.

    Anyway, get P1K's Crystal Heart below.

  • Hot Topic Interviews Tara Strong
