An online store called Zulily has a boatload of MLP merchandise on sale for the holidays. Everything from Aurora Plushies for 7 bucks off, to the completely off the wall random merch we post in the weekly compilations is available. There is a bit too much to list. You can find it all over here! Thanks to Alice for the heads up!

Heh, I bet we'd all react the same way if our favorite pony was starting back at us.
Yet more comics guys! Lots of them lately. Click for full!
[Sci-Fi] This fanfic makes me want to go play F.T.L.
Description: The discovery of a tiny extraterrestrial object within our own solar system makes a strangely equine alien race aware that the Earth is inhabited by an intelligent species, and they're on their way to come visit.First Contact is Magic
But since space is a really, really, really big place, they aren't going to get here for about a thousand years. They do have FTL communication, though, so while we wait maybe we'd like to be pen pals...

Up all night waiting for the new episode? Keep yourself going with the final videos analyzing last weeks' ep! Silver Quill delivers yet another massively entertaining review, followed by Gibbontake assembling the points of all the analysis videos he's seen to draw some conclusions. Finally, Matching Ties analyzes the episode's humor, giving his thoughts on which jokes work. As an added bonus, I've linked a text analysis of the Phoenix Wright crossover parody Turnabout Storm at the bottom. All of this after the break!
Like Twilight Sparkle wasn't already a super hero. I'm pretty sure the endless amount of spells her horn usually blasts things with would have been much more effective than ice. That costume was awesome though.
Anyway, onward to art!
The My Little Karaoke team has released a new disc overflowing with boatloads of extra pony. Some of the major improvements include:
- A lot more new songs! We've added more than 70 new tracks, not counting instrumental versions.
- As always, we're trying our best to focus on quality assets with 720p video backgrounds and high-quality sound when available.
- We've added a few extras, such as a paper song list to makes it easier to pick songs during parties.
- We've added a variant of the MyLittleKaraoke skin, with a static background. This will be useful for people who want to capture videos using tools such as FRAPS.
- We've updated the Windows
version of the engine to gain a performance boost. We're now using a
cutting-edge build of Ultrastar Deluxe (nightly).
- We've created a patch fixing an issue on OSX Mavericks, preventing the game to be launched. Mavericks users must patch the game for it to work properly.
- We've built an easy-to-use updater both for Windows and Mac OSX.
Hopefully we get a lot of super powered ponies after the episode this weekend! Can't wait to see what awesomeness people come up with.
We Love Fine has tossed up a bunch of new shirts based on both Power Ponies and the official MLP Comics. Were they ever this fast in last seasons? I honestly don't remember. Anyway, get them over here.
Anyway, new episode time! This one is sure to be one action-packed epic adventure. Personally I'm excited to see [REDACTED], but that's just me.
Though no tweet-a-long has been announced, you should still check out the Twitter accounts of episode writers Charlotte Fullerton and Betsy McGowen, as well as the usual suspects Meghan McCarthy and Mike Vogel, as I'm sure they'll have some sort of entertaining commentary on the episode. Also check out the #MLPseason4 hashtag to tweet along with others watching the ep!
