• Nightly Roundup #1257

    Man has it been a year already? With my bday tomorrow it's a time to remember I'm getting ever older and yet another year closer to 30. Hopefully the year between this bday and the next is good (and without much fire).

    News time my friends! Get it all after the break!
  • Music of the Day #573

    Turns out, the secret was actually the reveal of the Great Mi Amore Cadenza statue, and not a baby. Shiny was just messing with Twilight.

    Or something. Just go get some music! Tons of ponies at dawn this time. We will probably make a separate post with our favs from that one, but for now we will flood it in music of the day!

  • Equestria Daily's NYCC After Action Report Part 2—Artist Alley

    Considering the characters involved, I'm sure you can figure out what happens in the next minute or so to Magica de Spell. Thank you Amy Mebberson and James Silvani for the fantastic co-lab commission!

    I will not mince words. Artist Alley is where I spent the vast majority of my time while at NYCC. Well, there and trying to get a certain rainbow maned exclusive from from a certain toy company that shall remain nameless. But considering that Artist Alley alone had over 300 comic creatives, just saying "hi" to a fraction of them would have taken most of a day.

    Since these are all creatives gathered in one place for the dual purpose of granting easy access to their fans and selling their wares to their fans, just saying "hi" to everyone simplely wouldn't be enough. Also, because my bags were stuff full of something from almost every MLP Creative I chatted with while in the alley, their second purpose worked very well on me.

    Thankfully the organizers of NYCC had the foresight—and probably someone who realized that Agnes Garbowska's request of having Sara Richard placed next to her would be good for all the MLP Comic Staff—to put everyone who works on the comic in one spot. Made chatting with the MLP crew, and gaining little tidbits of news from them much easier than usual.

    You can find out all of that information after the break!

    FritzyBeat dropped an awesome new Spitfire and Soarin themed track off earlier in the week, and we totally missed it. So go listen to it below, OR ELSE!

  • Nightly Discussion #505

    AJ as a knight of some sort really seems to fit her well. As the Element of Honesty I can see how that virtue would translate over well to a paladin or something.

    Evening my friends! Another weekend is over it seems. Ready for the week ahead?

  • Them's Fightin' Herd's Fully Funded

    Since most people didn't see our update earlier, and It totally deserves some celebration, I figured I'd split this off. Them's Fightin' Herds has been fully 100% funded! Three days still remain if you want to get in for those $15 deals or any of the other more reward filled packages they are offering.

    Congratulations fandom! We still got it!

    Thanks to the swarms of people that sent it in! :D
  • Tumblr Spotlight: Night Vanguard / Ask Cutup / The GunRunners / Four Inept Guard Ponies

    Phew, the tumblr list is getting shorter and shorter my friends! I spent a good part of the day sorting through old emails, weeding out dead tumblrs and ones I had already used but had not filed. We're down to 75 emails so with any luck if you sent in a tumblr to me at some point I'll be able to get to them relatively soon.

    In the meantime, we've got a nice batch of tumblrs suiting the Halloween theme this month, quite a few of them submitted to me awhile ago! If you're not in the Halloween mode we do have a silly tumblr for you guys to check out at the end of today's feature. So check on after the break for our latest edition of the tumblr spotlight!

    As always, if you have a tumblr you would like to share, whether it is your own or someone elses, please make sure to send it my way at [email protected] or my Twitter for review and filing. Mature themed ones (PG-13) are welcome as well!

    Update: If you have been featured before and were in hiatus and are coming back you can inform me at [email protected]! I am starting a section at the end of spotlights that will point out tumblrs coming out of hiatus so people can check them out.

  • Discussion: What Kind of Foal Should Shining Armor and Cadance Have?

    It looks like the news is officially out! These two are having a foal.We have no idea what it will actually be, and it doesn't look like any of the future episodes of this season are going to reveal that. Outside of Princess Skyla creeping her oddly shaped little head into the world of merchandise a while back, there haven't been any hints.

    So, good peolpe of the fandom with all of your wonderful fan-based ideas, it is time to choose! Prince or Princess X is a blank slate, and you need to decide their fate!

    Should it be a male? A female? Or is Shining Armor actually Chrysalis and Cadance is surprised to find a changeling pop out? THE POSSIBILITIES ARE ENDLESS!

    Choose the race, choose the sex, and give it a destiny in the comments below!

  • "The One Where Pinkie Pie Knows": Episode Followup


    The scene opens on a spacious, well-furnished New York apartment. On a couch in the center of the frame, Pinkie Pie is hardly able to sit still. She just found out some incredible news, and she can't wait for the rest of her friends to arrive so she can share with them what she just--

    "Ooh, wait, wait a minute! Is this what I think it is?"

    Suddenly, Pinkie Pie speaks up, seemingly to an empty room. As she looks towards the front of the room--or rather, beyond it--a really odd smile curls onto her face...

    "Omigosh, it is! This is the movie reference, isn't it?"

    This is... wait, hang on a second--

    "Or is it a TV show reference this time? This is supposed to be Friends, right? I love that show?

    Okay, no, stop. You're not supposed to--

    "Don't worry. I got this. How you doin'?"

    Look, at least let me--

    "We were on a break!"

    It kind of defeats the purpose if you just--

    "I'm a simple mare. I like pretty, dark-haired stallions and breakfast food!"

    That's not even from Friends, that's from Parks and Re... you know what, fine. FINE. I get the picture. Just start the stupid followup.

    My name is Aquaman, this is the "The One Where Pinkie Pie Knows" followup, and guess who's back, back again? (I'm back. Tell a friend.) Let's get down to business.

  • Special Edition Mini Aurora Plushies Hit Hot Topic

    Aurora has a special edition lineup of Celestia and Luna invading Hot Topic if this find is any indication. Both clock in at $12.50. It would probably be best to call in before making the trip to pick them up, as Hot Topic tends to be pretty random on stock from my experience.

    Thanks to Victor for sending them!

  • Princess Cadance Book on The Way for Next Year, Plus "Equestria Girls 6"

    Hatchett Book Group has a new listing up for an untitled Princess Cadance book for all of you following the G.M. Berrow series over the last few years. Unfortunately, no information is yet available, but chances are it will follow the same style as the last few princess themed releases.

    Expect a post when we get a synopsis, title, and cover!

    And in other news, the rest of the Daring Do series will be getting solo releases, and yet another Equestria Girls book is on the way. I wonder what that one will be based on?

  • PMV: Frame of Mind

    I totally had the song from this one on my extremely strict favorite music playlist for like a week. Not a lot of songs last a week on that list! Imagine my surprise when it got a PMV from a bunch of awesome video editors in the fandom.

  • Early Morning Discussion #322

    So Cadance now has a bun in the oven (at least I think so). Guess we'll be seeing some adorable auntie Twilight in the future huh?

    Morning everyone! How is everything going?
