Calpain is off doing that movie watching thing, so I'm taking over the roundup tonight! I even used the new template this time to keep it standard.
Tomorrow is technically EQD's 4th anniversary, but we can celebrate that one with a big old post tomorrow morning. For now, it's roundup time! Get the fun and games below as always.
Fluttershy and Dash make the cutest and unlikeliest friends. I think deep down that's what I love about the show: no matter who you are you can be friends with just about anyone if you put some effort into it!
Hey everyone, ready for a chat?
This is so refreshing. In an analysis community that has pretty much turned into an OC in the corner and a window with pony episode pieces in it in the other, messing with the formula is the best.
So, how does the education system in Equestria Work? What have we seen so far that we can build something off of? Have an incredibly cute notebook art style analysis that delves right into it!
Head on down below the break to check it out.
If any of you follow our stream events while in season, you have probably run into Xyro's at some point while waiting for GLORIOUS 1080p. This also means you were subject to all sorts of humongous DJ mixes while waiting.
Consider the first track to be XYRO APPROVED, and we can probably expect to hear it at some point when s5 starts airing.
But if electronic stuff isn't your thing, or you need some variety, we also have some metal from Ponysphere. One can't have ponies without variety after all. Celebrate both below!
1.) [House] L.M. & Hydra - Flight (Instrumental - House)
2.) Ponysphere - Loveable Monarch (Ft. Secret Metal) (Vocal - Metal)
Those crazy Russians are back with another cover song, this time spotlighting Love Me Cheerilee! Expect the same stuff we got from the Pinkie's Brew one a while back. Now go get it below the break! Or else!
I've been told that we are falling short of our daily quota of BADASS. So have SPACE MARINE Luna defending humanity from the orks!
And get more art below, with your cute, questionable, etc etc.

Got a bunch of first parts to multiparters today! Up above is a series that has been going on since 2013 about the fall of Equestria to evil and how a grown up CMC try to save it.

Everyone's favorite fuzzy wolf is back with another bit of speculation and discussion. For any of us who grew up during the 90s, or heck, growing up at all it's hard to not think of a childhood without Disney influencing us in some regard. As such, is it possible that other media like MLP can be influenced by Disney as well?
Check on after the break for DrWolf's analysis!
We haven't had a good chopped up vocal song in forever. Usually I don't like these much in more mainstream music, but ponies somehow make it work really well. Maybe I'm just biased due to that whole obsession thing.
And in the second slot, it's back to the pre-2000's with some clasic rock! Ge them both below.
1.) Nexaka - All Together Now (Vocal Chopping - Electronic)
2.) Tis A Lie (Vocal - Classic Rock)
Mid way through January everyone! Time sure does fly even when we're in hiatus, eh? Hopefully it means new pony is just a couple months away at this point. In the meantime get your pony fix with some of our artists today after the break!
As always with this event, if you want to partake in the madness make sure to send an email to me at email@example.com with your name, the type of art you'll be doing, a gallery link (optional) a link to your livestream and a banner (also optional). Make sure that your stream follows our content guidelines as laid out under our submit tab and also make sure to that you can be ready to stream at our standard time of 4pm EST / 1pm PST on Saturday. Also, if you participated in this week's stream event please send me the art you made so I can include it in next week's Livestream Drawfriend.
13.75 BILLION years ago when the universe BURST into existence(roughly), the pony within you was chosen before the very first cloud of dust even considered settling and forming a planet. The crew over at Ponyfinder has found a way to hack into your SOUL. No longer will you wander the internet wondering what your inner pony is, or if you chose the right color scheme for that oc you created in Pony Creator three years ago and have since adopted. It's time to let fate decide!
Head on over to Who Is My Pony, and discover the equine WITHIN!
I am now a: unicorn pony with silver mane, black eyes, and peach fur. They discovered their passion for swords while gazing at the stars. They collect unique traditions at every chance.
Uhhh... close enough

Here's something interesting from the world of randomly placed pony merchandise. This new fabric swatch was spotted at Joannes Fabrics. I don't think a lot of this art has ever been used. The Rarity and Fluttershy remind me something out of the earlier Andy Price/Katie Cook stuff, but the rest is a mystery. I have a horrible memory though, so maybe one of you can point out where they are from.
Thanks to Faith for sending them! If you are around Colombia, SC, expec tto find it in the Joannes Fabrics over there.
What are your thoughts on baby ponies? I thought they looked weird at first, but I have grown to like them a bit about the Cakes had their kids. Still look a little odd...

Website. Twilight Sparkle and friends have been upgradeed with more accurate mane styles, along with pointier noses. It's not often we see an entire toy line get a redesign in ponyland.
Head on down below the break for a comparison shot of all of them!
I've been getting a lot of emails and responses worried that our new Desu Daily EQD style blog, is going to detract from pony, so I figured I'd get a followup going on what exactly is going on with it to put some of those fears to rest!
Desu Daily is staffed by primarily a different section of Equestria Daily. They either haven't actively posted ponies in a while, or were in our fringe groups that would do specialized posts for certain events (usually writing events). I'll be hopping over there to help out and advise every once in a while, but my focus is still Equestria Daily and ponies. I'm addicted to cartoon equines! Expect me (Sethisto),Calpain, Leon, Illustrious Q, Cereal, Ferret, Phoe, Couch, and our in-season guys (Xyro and Krypton, etc), along with most of the reviewers to remain here.
And on an entirely different note, we are aware that anime is an old and well established thing, and you guys aren't composed entirely of anime fans by any means. Desu Daily isn't looking to explode and be top anime dog. It's simply an extra convenience for those of you that do find yourselves liking both topics. Will it grow over time? We will find out in a few months! You can help us by spreading the word and providing feedback if it interests you, along with sending in interesting news or fanworks.
Adjusting to a new climate will be interesting for everyone involved, and like all sites things will start off slow and get into the rhythm over time. If you'd like to help out, we have a suggestion box going to gather feedback and ideas. We are still figuring out the exact topics we'd like to cover in anime outside of fanworks. It's a massive genre in comparison to pony, so things are going to be a little bit weird.
So, tl;dr, no worries! Pony is #1, and if you enjoy anime, you can check out DD for fun.
(Note: This will probably be the last actual Desu Daily post here on EQD. Further updates will be found over there. EQD stays poni)
