Hope you all had a wonderful holiday and are just as tired as these ponies here. Next up is New Years so lets make the most of these scant few days before we ring in 2014! Let's leave 2013 on a good note, eh?
News, news, and more news after the break!
And that just about wraps up today. Hopefully you all got gifts like Luna's instead of embarassing stuff like Twi!
We have 10 songs tonight in Music of the Day. Get them all below.
And always, please include a genre. Look at all these blank genres!
Description: Ten years have passed, and even the best of friends have begun to drift apart.The Shadow of a Doubt
Twilight Sparkle finds old regrets are beginning to weigh upon her, keeping her trapped in the past. However, the bustling, decadent nights in Canterlot are made for sharing secrets, and tonight, an old friend is waiting for her among the crowds. Perhaps a familiar face and a guiding hoof could be enough to lighten the young princess's burden.

In this entertaining and informative video, the team behind the Fallout: Equestria game adaptation share some knowledge and know-how in the realm of understanding copyrights, trademarks, and the dreaded "cease and desist." It's a good place to start with learning about these issues, so check it out after the break!
Quite a bit of Christmas/Holiday themed music came in these past few days. For the sake of the holidays, these aren't going to go through much review at all, but some are really good anyway, so go get some Christmas cheer below! Vocals at the top, Instrumentals below them, and a cute parody/Dinky thing to finish it.
