I can't decide what my favorite song from this episode was. At first it was VOTE PIP, then it became the Pony I want to Be, but now I'm leaning toward the final chase song. They all have their awesome moments.

I'm thinking we need to dig into the world of pony skirts for our 3rd installment of the pony fashion series. I'm afraid Coco Pommel here already took the top slot though.

Is that what these are called? Election shirts? I honetstly have no idea. For how much I run into them, you would think I'd have a name for it. My brain tends to only absorb what it needs though, so maybe somewhere in my subconcious it's letting me know that this information is unimportant.
Anyway, you don't need me to say anything, the title says it all. Election shirts on Teefury for 14 a pop. Have some links:

Pony Declining, but Hopefully More Stuff on The Way To Fix It - Hasbro Investor Call for Q3 Transcriptby Sethisto"This is what happens when you don't have episodes for 11 months dad!"
Hasbro did their annual investor conference call today, and the results were a bit shaky on the pony side of things. We saw another girls brand drop, down 28% from last year (echoed by Bloomberg), which includes things like pony, Furby, and Pet Shop. Pony dominates that section pretty well, so we can probably assume it's the main driver.
Luckily, it's not all gloom and doom. In fact, Hasbro seems to "get" why this is happening. In a response to one of their investors calling in asking about it, Brian Goldner responded with the following:
"I think in many ways it sort of reinforces our belief that programming support its over the full calendar year is essential as you look at content storytelling and that it's a little more challenging to put out a one-time per year special, although we do have lots of streaming short videos and other elements to support the EQUESTRIA GIRLS product line. It does impact our timing on that -- on that part of the business certainly."
"In MY LITTLE PONY, several new initiatives coming both in the core MY LITTLE PONY as well as EQUESTRIA GIRLS."
In other words, they understand that giving us literally 11 months of no pony was a bad idea, and more content throughout the year is hopefully the plan going forward. We are coming up on the next major hiatus between season 5 and 6, and the only way to keep this gravy train rolling on their end is to give us something to chew in the break. Speaking as someone who works pretty closely to the world of pony, I can confirm that giant gaps of nothing has a long-lasting effect on the fandom's numbers, and as much as they like to pretend this show is still 100% 12-year-old girl driven, there is no denying that having an army of dudes with Rainbow Dash avatars online is big advertising.
Now they need to do a bit more advertising for the rest of season 5! Where did it go?

Description: "I can face the whole world with one claw, as long as your hoof is holding the other." - A Dragon in Love -Beside Every Great Dragon there is a Great Moon (New Part 7!)
Greed strengthens a dragon. But what of the opposite? Spike feels a little bit of himself broken away with each passing day as Rarity flaunts her newfound love with another stallion. But that's the least of his troubles. A formal gala for which he is the guest of honour quickly approaches. With the relationship between the Council of Friendship and the nobles of Equestria at stake, he is certain this gala could only end in a big political disaster. Enter Princess Luna, cunningly disguised as the sweet elegant mare by his side, intent on turning him from a laughingstock into the star of the show. But jealousy and misfortune swiftly strike, leaving Luna permanently stuck in her disguise. Together they must maintain their cover until they somehow figure out how to fix everything. As the days pass, as the 'one more day's turn into a week, they slowly come to a startling realization - Perhaps there is nothing to fix?

It's gotten super cold around here recently, so much so that we had our first snow of the year yesterday. Just a little, but it sure does show that winter is around the corner.
