    Man, I really do feel like this right now. Time to hit the hay and count some sheep! Oh, and I think I'll keep Roundups at around 10pm blog time since most of you had valid reasons why that didn't fit your schedules. Back to business as usual!

    WTVY Brony Feature for Creativity Month

    WTVY is holding an awesome event you all can take part in. Take a look:

    In October, News 4 This Morning held a Art Contest with an amazing response from all over the world from fans of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. For Creativity Month in January, we’re following up on that in two different ways!

    Many fans of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic enjoy the original music created by fans of the hit animated series. If you have created some music based on the series, instrumental or vocal, share it with us! PLEASE NOTE: We cannot accept remixes of actual songs from the show due to copyright concerns. These must be fully original works.

    If music isn’t your creative medium, we’re looking for a “Pony News” banner for our broadcast and webpage. This would be displayed on air and online with our news updates on the series and its fans. Feel free to get creative with the banner and even use our “OC” (seen above) if you would like. The image would need to be 1280x720 and have a news-related theme of some kind! Feel free to include multiple submissions if you would like.
