Some more Spike for the Roundup! It has been years since I saw Kickass; not too bad of a movie.
Time for some news after an eventful day everyone. Hopefully tomorrow is a bit calmer.
Dreams are a wonderful thing to have. They propel us through life and make our spirits soar even in the worst of times. We're all just little ponies looking up at that big castle in the dark of night.
With midweek over we're getting ever closer to the weekend. Hope you all are well! Just wanted to thank you all for being such good sports for using the Discussions here for off topic banter as it has significantly cleaned up the other posts on the site. Well done!
Now, get to chatting!

News has been going around that the Journey of the Spark has run into problems and has ceased production completely. Unfortunately some of the rumor is true according to a new post by the production group behind the animation. While work on the animation itself will be halted, the film will instead be converted over to an audio drama. So while the film itself will never be, at least we are getting the story in some form.
Check on after the break for a copy of the full press release and here for the source.

For anyone who loves to talk about high fantasy series, Den of Geek has written the article for you. They're looking at all the different fantasy elements of MLP and how they compare to other well known, more "serious" fantasy series. It's really cool to see how the different ideas can be used in so many ways.They do a really good job showing how the lighter ideas MLP uses have been used in darker series. For example the article mentions things like how the Windigoes could fit in nicely with Game of Thrones and their Winter woes. It also points out some interesting similarities between our equine friends and Lord of the Rings. Applejack as Sam anyone?The article gets into more obscure series too, including mentions of The Belgariad, which in case you've never read it, is one of those classic high fantasy series that you could use as weights.If you've ever wanted to know more about fantasy elements this is the article for you. It might also help folks who are worried MLP is too superficial as this really does point out the deeper aspects.Get it over here
News has come out from the Wall Street Journal of Hasbro ending it's partnership with Discovery over The Hub network. Under the new agreements, Discovery will have controlling interests of The Hub and will rebrand the network the Discovery Family Network. This change can be expected as early as the 4th quarter. Hasbro will still have a large amount of influence over the company, controlling six hours of programming from 9am to 3pm.
The Wall Street Journal muses that while Hasbro's involvement with the network is expected to decline it is also possible that other outlets, like Cartoon Network, might be approached to host their programming.
We'll try to keep you all updated if more information arises. Thanks to SleepySteve for the heads up.

Update: To view the entire article paste in "Discovery to Take Control of Hub Children's Network" to Google and click the Wall Street Journal result. For some reason this gets around their paywall which I accidentally discovered while searching for sources earlier.
