On the non-internet front, it looks like ABC 11 (the local news for North Carolina) has picked up on the Micheal Morones story. They have a video link over on their site, as well as an article. Find it here.
And in other news, he's also up on Gawker, though that sort of just repeats what we already know at this point.
Thanks to everyone for the heads up and Steven for the link!
(Update: Also on WTVY)
I remember watching Flapjack a lot with my sister during college. Now its ponies that monopolize all my time it seems. What other shows do you guys like to watch or did watch when you were younger?
Also, leave a vote down below for tomorrow night's header! I'm running out of ideas for headers on these things, heh.
Also, apologies in advance for the video heavy Roundup tonight. Sometimes it can't be avoided so fair warning to those of you who experience slowdown when a bunch of embeds load. On to the news!
I honestly don't even know where all this music comes from! The fandom pumps it out like an assembly line! Things seem to have doubled again sizewise for the pony world. Thank derpy for that.
Get boatloads more music below!

It looks like the bully awareness has reached outside the pony fandom, topping the most popular images over at picture upload/viral image birthplace Imgur. Said image links to an article in the Chicago Now, that details his story so far and the pony community's donation drive.
It's good to see this spread around! Hopefully the entire internet backing him helps Micheal through this crisis. He's going to be in for a amazing ride when he wakes up!
Thanks to Knighty and Amana for the heads up!
The 16th comic in the main series has a new preview available for it. Head on over to Comic Alliance to check it out! Expect it to release on the 5th, and get the synopsis below if you missed it!

Things haven't changed a whole lot since the last time we ran this poll years ago. Fluttershy and Twilight are still the big two. I wonder how many of you Rarity's just think you are Raritys? That's a tough lifestyle to live!
Next poll: Best song from Pinkie Pride. Go hit it up over on the side bar.

Description: They say that the apple never falls far from the tree. As the only member of the Apple family to forsake the family's agrarian ways, however, Applejack is perhaps the lone exception to that rule. Instead of returning to Ponyville, Applejack found her calling in the bright lights of Manehattan, and has called it home ever since.The Furthest from the Tree
She may be an Apple by blood, but she is about as far away from the tree as she can get. And she likes it that way.
Additional Tags: Applejack never leaves Manehattan
Party! It's pretty early for the Drawfriend post. I blame the sudden influx of art. It seems like the fandom has completely revitalized and then some lately. Derpy and Weird Al work wonders!
Head on down below for a bunch of it!

Over in Europe, a big event took place dedicated to the world of toys, with pony taking a huge chunk of that. Unfortunately, a lot of this convention is locked down, not allowing photos of any of the products. One of our European guest reporters Gerjet "Weatherhoof" Betker grabbed what he could out of it, with a few interesting products being confirmed for on the way. Head on down below the break for the entire thing!
Comic: Snow Day in Equestria / On The Same Rail / Cheese Sandwich / Pinkie Promise / Silly Hats Onlyby Calpain
I remember when I used to adore snow as a kid. Snow days and sledding were so exciting back then. Now it just means more white stuff I have to shovel off my car. Sometimes it stinks to grow up, no?
Even more comics today guys. Click for full.
Two more of those 24 hour shirt sites have pony shirts up for the usual 11 buck price tag. One dedicated to Shining Armor, the other dodging copyright the way these sites used to do it with an unnamed duo of ponies. Head on over here for Shirtpunch, and here for unamee.
