  • "Three's a Crowd" Episode a Musical!

    From the cheese sandwiches and random tweets, to the hints during convention panels and Meghan McCarthy's usual shenanigans, this episode has been poked for over two years now.  Remember way back during April 2011 when this happened?  Jayson is the director over on the Friendship is Magic team for those curious.  A simple ponification of a Weird Al song was the trigger that sparked what we will finally get to see come January.

    Anyway, had on down below the break for some speculations on what we will be seeing in Three's a Crowd"!  

  • Snowflake Officially Named Bulk Biceps in the CCG

    Here's a bit of potentially old yet under the radar news for all of you out there that pay attention to background pony names in canon.  According to the MLP CCG Card "Good Hustle", the pony we know as "Snowflake" is apparently "Bulk Biceps" over there.

    I'll let you guys decide on which you like more.  I'm leaning toward Snowflake myself!

    Thanks to Nick for the heads up.

  • MLP CCG: Send Tournaments!

    With the official card game finally out in the wild, and people slowly discovering combos and strategies for it, it's time to get some community building going! I know boatloads of meetup groups probably have systems setup for letting their members know when tournaments are taking place, but there are also loads of lone wolves looking for a place to throw down some Twilight Sparkle.

    There are a bunch of card shops out there that only advertise locally, and if they are anything like the ones here in Arizona, they don't advertise much at all!  It's time to blast it across the internet!

    If you see or plan to attend a tournament hosted at a nearby card shop in your area, send it in! If we get enough, we will convert it into a weekly post.  Otherwise keep an eye out for announcements on each in the Nightly Roundups.

    Include the following:

    Email Header: TOURNAMENT
    Rules (if any)

    Copy paste that up there, fill it out, and send it over!  Hopefully these become more common as the cards become a bit more available.  I know quite a few people in busy cities/areas that can't find them due to lack of stock. 

  • Ponymotes: Daring Don't, Power Ponies, Flight to the Finish, and Crossover!

    I still have no clue where to file these, but they are pretty funny.  Comic maybe? Animated comic? I guess that would kind of work.  Anyway, get three dedicated to the new episodes, and a crossover to finish it. Click the images to go check them out.

  • Poll Results: What Was Your Favorite Micro Series Comic?

    Honestly, this is one of those polls I actually agree with the victory on.  Rarity definitely was a close second, but Luna had so many good moments.   Moonbutt has solidified her place as second best pony in my book after that one.  She really needs a "silly Luna" style episode to go with it this season. Actually, this season could use more happy go lucky in general.  I do love me some of that. 

    I'm sure boatloads of you voted for her by default though.

    Next poll, Part one of two:  Which Character had the best costume in Power Ponies? Get it over on the side bar!
  • Passion - Love the Ponies!

    Sometimes it's good to just sit back and take a look at this completely off the wall pony thing that has flooded just about every corner of the internet in the 2010-onward era.  We had our major influx of fandom growth a little over a year and a half ago,  and over time people become more and more jaded as the freshness wears off and expectations rise to astronomical levels.

    The video below is a good reminder of what exactly we have going for us.  This is a massive community, built around some of the best characters to hit pop culture in a while.  The art, stories, music, videos, and full blown fan animations are simply put, amazing.  Only a handful of other fandoms come close to what we've accomplished when it comes to expanding the original source material. 

    We've been through a lot together over the years, from run-ins with Hasbro shutting down major projects, to the huge positives via charity and and the armada of real life meetup events around the world.  There will always be bucketloads of drama and overly enthusiastic angry fans in comments on Youtube, Twitter, and here during episode posts, but that isn't always a bad thing.  It's good that people care enough to dig into something so deeply.  This is a sign of something that has changed millions of lives. 

    Anyway, what was supposed to be a simple video post ended up expanding a bit. Just keep rockin' on guys! We already made history, lets keep it going! And go watch stuff below!
