Description: The name's Slate. Straight Slate, detective by trade. It's no easy job, tracking down changelings on the cold city streets, but I'm good at what I do. I've been doing this a long time, ever since the attempted invasion at the royal wedding. But these days... These days, things are different. Something's rotten in the city of Canterlot, and one way or another I intend to get to the bottom of it. Even if it kills me.

So, if you guys are anything like me, you love hearing about what influences the show staff use to create our favourite show. Well, today we've got an interview someone wrote about a researcher who studies why those influences even exist.
The interview is with a woman who studies how modern culture uses and understands ancient cultures. She got hooked on our favourite pastel coloured equines in S2 and never looked back. The article she's written focuses on how the Pegasi culture is a sort of mash-up between Greek and Roman ancient culture and theorizes as to the reasons.
My favourite part has to be when the interviewer asks if her research is aimed at the MLP crowd, which she completely dismisses. She points out how much we love this show and how many of us adore finding little hints of influence and talking to the staff about the hard work they put into things.
You can find the interview here and can even follow this amazing researcher here and read the article she wrote over here. She's got some other really cool pieces including one about Blade Runner and Gladiators. I think you need to make an account to access the entirety of her pieces, but it appears to be free for anyone to use. Sort of a facebook for academia.
I for one hope she has great success and I know all of us would love to hear more of what she has to say on our favourite ponies. Maybe something about the symbolism of Rainbow Dash's mane? Or perhaps the significance of the main six's coat colours in North American colour theory? There's so many possibilities!
Thanks to Ryan, sleepysteve, and everyone else for sending it!
I never know what to say about Fluttershy images. She's always so peaceful in them. I've been complaining about that for years now. How did I manage to do 1580 of these?
We are using a new compiler from EQDbot who you may recognize from the comments. Crossing fingers all is well! Looks good so far though! that dude is a beast.
Anyway, get some art!

There is no doubt about it, ponies are all over the gaming industry. It may have died down a bit over the years, but we still regularly see references to them all over the place, especially in the indie scene. It's not often the big companies show something like this off though. The Ubisoft building in Quebec has Dashie joining some of gamings biggest icons.
Now we just need more awesome things like that Trixie keychain in Watchdogs. Top reference!
Thanks to Mic for sending it.
I'm following the rules of Trixie as laid down by Seth, so here's some awesome magic and Trixie to announce the next EQD Podcast: Summertime Edition! For past editions look no further than right here
This one will be happening on July 12th at 7pm EST* on youtube. As before we'll have a post and link the day of.
In case you're new to this here's how it works. We make this post and you guys flood the comments with questions you want us to answer. Wanna know How obsessive Seth gets? Wondering what it's really like working as a pre-reader? Have you always pondered how Gameleon has such a cool accent? This is the time!
Give us your questions and musings and we'll do our best to answer and entertain. As always, the people who will show up vary wildly, but I can promise my presence at least.
So fill the comments and we'll see you there!

After my "My Past Is Not Today" was released in several different languages a few days ago, "Friendship Through The Ages" has now been dubbed into Brazilian Portuguese
Not as much languages as "My Past Is Not Today", but maybe we will see those appear in the near future.
For now, find the original and the Portuguese version below the break.
We've got a new SFM artist for you guys today and considering his first piece is over four minutes long with multiple scenes, set to a song and has multiple ponies being animated I've got to say it's an admirable first effort!
Check on after the break for the video and leave some feedback if you can for this new artist! Also, thanks to Pasha for sending it in.
Flies are such dweebs and Gilda seems to agree. Nothing sucks more than those biting flies you get in the summer. You're just trying to enjoy the sun and they're trying to nibble on you. Annoying!
Morning guys! It's Friday time. Ready for the weekend?
Daniel Ingram is so busy making you all pony music, he had to cancel his trip to BronyCon. Here's to hoping he can get through the huge amount of stuff he's working on. I can't imagine being creative on a deadline 15+ times a season is easy!
Get the press release below.
