• Nightly Roundup #893

    Well, that came out of nowhere. Sonic and Rainbow Dash (technically SonicDash, but I didn't want the whole site exploding) was suggested in the comments and it ended up with almost 40 upvotes and won last night so, um, here it is! You guys voted for it and I keep my promises, heh.

    So! With that out of the way, how about tomorrow? Leave a comment down below to vote. Also, remember that you can have whatever sort of off topic conversations you want in the comments here in the Roundup. No worries as long as it is SFW!

    Now for the news!

    ArtForMichael Project

    The You Will Rise Project, an anti-bullying organization, has heard about Michael's story and the huge community outpouring. Currently they are collecting artwork to be displayed on a website dedicated to art, music, ect just for him:

    We learned about Michael Morones' story and wanted to get involved. Our project is about empowering people who have experienced bullying to speak out through the arts.

    We were moved by the powerful art pieces we saw being created for Michael, and wanted to create a display on our site that all can contribute to. Our goal is to offer a show of support for Michael and his family, as well as making a statement that everyone should feel free to celebrate the things they love without fear of judgement or senseless bullying. Here's a link to the page: http://artformichael.com.

    All of the works are posted with permission of the artists. We just launched it this weekend and we've already received 60 pieces, including visual art, poetry, short stories, and music.

    Everything submitted before April 30 will be compiled in a hardbound book and presented to the Morones family. We would greatly appreciate your help spreading the word. Let me know if you need any additional information. Thanks!

    Tonight's Successful Meetups

    Indiana Brony Meetup

    Me and some fellow bronies chilled inside sears and looked at fridges afterwards. Don't judge why we chose fridges its what we do in Indiana. totally not boring people at all :) I figured I would submit it for the heck of it sense our last one made it on.

    Idaho Bronies Meetup

    Idaho Bronies Successfully met up, on Saturday the 8th of February. We met up at the theater and watched The LEGO Movie, and had a great time. While we were there one of us even got a 2 dollar bill as change. After the movie a small group of us went to dairy queen, and had a milkshake race (Yes, because we didn't learn from Button Mash's mistake). The group picture is blurry, and that is my phone's/the taker's fault.

    Tonight's Groups Looking For More

    Croatia Bronies Cinema Meetup

    On 15th of February 2014, Croatia Bronies - Cronies will have a Cinema meetup in Zagerb city.
    Meetup place will be King Tomislav Square (aka: Glavni kolodvor), in front of the statue, in 17.45h.
    On start of the meetup, we'll have a vote on which film we'll going to watch, where and when.
    Choices are:
    Robocop (2D) - Cinestar Branimir Centar - 20.45h
    Robocop 4DX - Cinestar Arena Centar - 20.35h
    Lego: The Movie (3D) - Cinestar Branimir Centar - 19.00h

    From the meeting place, if we head off in 18.00h we can make any of the screening times listed above. That's why it would be appreciated that members that plan on coming to the meetup aren't late more than 15 min.

    Note: College (and University) students can get Cinestar students card. It's free, no membership fee. If you have that card, you can buy 2 tickets per day on lower prices than regular prices and you can buy snacks and drinks cheaper inside the cinema. To get that card, you'll need to get some kind of certificate from your college that you're a college (or university) student and go to nearest Cinestar cinema and ask for a Cinestar students card. You can get the card on the meetup prior to the movie, but take note that process of getting the card takes some time (till they do all the paperwork) while we should be getting tickets for the film, so it would be appreciated if you could get that card prior to the meetup.

    Tonight's Podcasts and Blogs

    No Hooves Barred

    I hate the show, and kinda don't like the type of people who like the show. But I'll never tell them to die or s***, that's just cruel. I don't understand why people must always be b****es to other. They really shouldn't judge others by what they find entertaining and harass them for it.'
    Joined by Comic Artist Phaeston, Sarf and Shade discussed the perception of the fandom from the perspective of the media, furries, and the most recent episode, Pinkie Pride (And why it was the best episode yet!)
