    Brony Research

    I'm not sure if you are willing or able to do anything with this but my school, CSU Fullerton, is conducting research on the Brony fandom but they aren't getting enough people to interview and I was wondering if you guys would be willing to spread the message so that they could get some more interviews. So far they've only interviewed my boyfriend and me and they need plenty more than that for their research!

    In person interviews are not needed! I did a Skype video call for mine because I feel a face to face conversation conveys more but regular phone calls are also allowed.

    I loved doing the interview as did my boyfriend! The main questions I answered were about the show, why I liked it, the characters, which was my favorite, least favorite and why, and what it means to be a Brony and why I chose to become a Brony (how, when, why).

    Here's the information on the study:
    "This study is IRB (Institutional Review Board) approved, and participation will entail a 1 hour interview conducted at your convenience and location of choice.
    Sample questions during the interview include (but are not limited to) the following: What do you like best about My Little Pony? What are the characteristics of a Brony?
    Participation in this research is voluntary, and participants can skip questions or stop participating at any time without losing any benefits to which they are otherwise entitled. We will keep all records confidential to the extent allowed by law. We will use a pseudonym to conceal the participant’s identity in any presentations or papers based on this research.
    Please let me know if you have any questions regarding the study. Also, since participation in this study consists of an interview, let me know when you are available to meet for the interview.
    Best Wishes,

    Pony 411 Episode 70- Holes

    A new Pony 411 is here! In the news this week, we have the usual convention stuff, erasers, a holiday comic, Rainbow Rocks trailers, and more! A lot more. It was busy this week.

    After that, Nemesis and Alca7raz get to a long promised discussion. Equestria Girls. The first movie. They cover some of the plot holes within it, possible reasons it is the way it is, and of course, Flash. They aren't able to cover everything they wanted, though. Maybe in the future... Anyway, they also have Friends Forever #9 and a lone fan song to wrap it up. Tune in ,we're going to high school.
