do you agree with this Dashie? Are you in fact, awesome? What levels of awesome do you think you count as? Can you out-awesome Rainbow Dash?
It's roundup time, which means the usual roundup news! Get it all below.
As I've noted in the Drawfriend post, our compiler is currently dead. This unfortunately means our normal format for posts like this is a little bit different.
Regardless, we have reviews from around the fandom! Head on down below the break for all of them as always. And click the image to go check it out if it looks interesting to you!
Here at Equestria Daily towers, we have decided that celebrating 99 things isn’t enough, and so we will be celebrating an extra 9, making 108 instead. This does mean that the 100th episode will now be pushed back to 109, but we’re sure you won’t mind.
Today, we take a look at 9 of the best background ponies. So many ponies. So many colors. Head on down below the break for this amazing post written by our very own Blueshift from the pre-reader squad.
Season 6 has been completely replaced by Fallout: Equestria! How does this make you feel? What is your initial reaction to our now post-apocalyptic ponyland?
Or discuss whatever below.
For all you old fashioned vinyl record collectors out there, the Celestia and Luna set is now on sale at Hot Topic. Right now, you can grab one of them for 7$ off, and get the second one (or another of the same apparently) for 1$.
Have some links:

Thanks to Prariedawg for the heads up.
They say that Equestria was a paradise. I don’t know if that’s true, but I wanna believe it. There sure ain’t one in this piece of the ‘verse. Maybe we coulda built one if it weren’t for the damned Confederation. Those bastards wanted every planet in the system under their hoof and wouldn’t take no for an answer. The outer planets fought ’em, and we lost.
It’s tough to get by these days with Confederation lawkeepers looking for an excuse to crack down, bandits and thieves crawling everywhere the Confederation’s not, and the Jesters prowling around the edges of civilized space. Honest work’s hard to come by, and honest folk are twice as rare. Still, a mare has to make a livin’ somehow. So that’s what I do.

Apparently Gamestop is going to be stocking these, at least in their app store. The three pack of Discord, Rainbow Dash, and Derpy POP! tin was spotted with a June 15th release date over there. If you happen to be collecting these, I'm sure we will see them migrate elsewhere, but for now, this is the first we have seen of them.
Thanks to Austin for the image!
Not Five Nights at Freddies?! Not just a remake of a scene from the show? We finally have an original SFM video!
Get that in the first slot, and some scene remakes afterward! All below the break.
So how about that FIFA arrest thing? Major victory in the fight against corruption?
Day two of our compiler being busted. Picasa, why you change API? Head on down below for the art tornado as always!
Hasbro seems to be going all in on the SDCC panel this year. We usually don't get anywhere near the level of advertisement it's getting. A month out, and they are already teasing "super secret things" that are "awesomazing". Have the quote:
Hey ponies, here's a general public service announcement. The San Diego Comic Convention is a little over a month away. We'd like to ask that you please start getting excited! Maybe even...NERVOUSCITED!! There are so many super-secret things we have planned. THEY'RE AWESOMAZING!!!! We can't say anything yet so just hold on!!
Keep an eye out for our liveblogging when the event begins at 10:30 AM pacific on July 10th!
We have another massive animation project with two and a half years of work total going into it. Lullaby for a Princess has been animated in it's entirety. If you don't know what that is, you can find it over here. Needless to say, it's epic.
The trailer itself only shows a few of the animated bits. The final project covers all six and a half minutes of Lullaby. Get it down below!
Ahh nielsen ratings, you just love scaring us don't you? It looks like pony is back up to the other half of a million, with TV Media Insights reporting a climb to 594,000 viewers for last week's "Lost Treasures of Griffonstone" episode. The question is, what caused the dip previously? Does one week off really cause so many to forget a new pony episode is imminent?
I suppose we will find out when the 100th episode airs in a few weeks, though that might be skewed due to HYPE.
Thanks to Sleepysteve for the heads up!
Alex S. was one of the biggest early fandom musicians out there. Some of his songs still play on repeat constantly if you walk through any kind of pony-oriented social gathering.
A little over a day ago, all of his pony oriented songs on his Soundcloud and Youtube channel were marked as private. Quite a few of you have been sending this in, but we haven't seen an actual reason for it.
Did he get signed on with a label that requires him to remove his potentially infringing content? It's possible. That, or many other reasons could be the cause. There haven't been any announcements on his social media pages to point at one. He could even just be tired of being associated with cartoon equines for all we know.
We fired an email off, and will post a followup if an official response arrives. Until then, there are quite a few backups out there.
Rarity, you do realize that it's a pain in the neck to take frosting OFF a cake?We really need a header for these posts. Hopefully once the EQD mascot is finished, we''ll be able to put together some nice shenanigans involving it and our EQD Staff OCs.
Anyways, Brenda Hickey—IDW MLP Artist—has tossed up a Single Panel Out of Context (SPOC) Sneak Peek up on her instagram account for the world to see!
What sort of revelations does this panel contain for the upcoming story starring Rarity and the Cakes?
Well, the answer to that is not up here. For those curious enough, it's down below the break!
