• Nightly Roundup #892

    Sorry I am a little late tonight. Just got home from the Lego Movie and had a blast! Anyhow, I kept seeing calls for Sombra for a header so here he is in all his grumpy glory!

    Who should we have tomorrow night guys? While you decide, have a bunch of news after the break!

    Tonight's Stories

    Cake Again!

    You guys are really baking lately! Keep it up!

    Ponies a Religion?

    An article has popped up on The Telegraph, a paper from the UK, that talks about Bronies, Whovians, and Snapewives creating what they call genuine online religions. I know we really like our little ponies, but I think this one is a stretch.

    Check out the full story here!

    EqG Showing in Vue Cinemas UK

    MLP Soundtrack Hits Rhapsody

    For you Rhapsody users out there the MLP Soundtrack has hit the service:

    It looks like they finally put the Daniel Ingram "Songs of Friendship and Magic" album on Rhapsody. If you are a Rhapsody subscriber, it's yours to listen to as many times as you want. There's also a remix of "Love's in Bloom" credited to his name, although I'm not sure how official it is.

    Link: http://try.rhapsody.com/artist/daniel-ingram/album/my-little-pony-songs-of-friendship-and-magic-music-from-th

    Anyway, this is great news for people that have Rhapsody subscriptions and have waited for the album to make it to the service.

    Tonight's Successful Meetups

    Team Brony North Carolina

    Minnesota Bronies

    We visited Hot Topic, The Microsoft Store, Best Buy, Barns and Noble, Games by James, and various other stores at the Mall of America. On Behalf of Minnesota Bronies we would like to thank the Mall of America for being such gracious host.

    Bronies of Toronto Meetup

    Yesterday a very few of the Bronies of Toronto, 8 to be exact, went to the Nathan Phillips Square to do some skating. We then went to the Eaton Centre after and went to some of the stores, including Hot Topic, which disappointingly did not have much merchandise. After that we went to the Silver Snail and then had lunch at the AMC food court. This photo was taken at the food court where I could get everyone in it. I also put myself in the picture too and turned some faces to obscene to clearly identify people who were not in the group. It was a very fun time! Too bad a lot of people in the group only go to large meet ups.

    Bronies from Sudbury Meetup

    Bronies from Sudbury, Timmins and North Bay, Ontario, got together to celebrate a members birthday.

    Tonight's Groups Looking For More

    February Twitter Contest: Win a Vinyl Trixie Figure

    It’s once again time to announce our monthly Twitter follower contest, where we set a certain follower goal on Twitter and give away an awesome prize if we hit that goal.

    This month, we pay tribute (not by choice) to the Great and Powerful Trixie, Equestria’s master of illusion and professed hater of wheels. And we can’t think of a better way to pay tribute to her, than by offering her all-new Vinyl figure as this month’s follower contest prize.

    If we hit the magical number of 1200 FOLLOWS by February 18th at midnight, one of our followers will win this incredible prize. If we don’t, then it vanishes in a puff of blue smoke, just like on the show.

    Here’s how to enter to win.

    1) FOLLOW us on Twitter @CanterlotRadio and you’re entered!

    Remember, we have to hit 1200 FOLLOWS by the end of February in order to give it away, so share, RT, and FAV so everypony can see it.
