We've got a little treat for you guys tonight! We don't hear much from the pony fandom over in China, but apparently they are enthusiastic bunch. Tonight a member of the community has sent us a simple animation to celebrate the Chinese New Year.
While it's rather plain, I thought it'd be great to post here as an acknowledgement of the pony community way across the Pacific from us! We hope you all are doing well.
Check after the break for the animation and thanks to 文韬 for sending it in.
I'm way behind on the comics, but apparently most of you liked the Celestia/Sombra arc in the Reflections story if I recall correctly? Man, I really do need to catch up.
Anyhow, evening everyone. Ready to chat?

Comic time again guys! Check them out after the break!
Well, this is certainly a first… especially since the following aren't exactly Single Panels Out of Context! MLP Cover Artist Sara Richard has tossed up a few sneak peeks of some of her upcoming covers on her Instagram account!
Note how I said covers. Considering that Sara works primarily on the covers for the comic, it's unlikely that she's showing us snippets of the same work. Then again, I could be wrong and all the following shots are really really close to the surface of the cover.
For those of you who want to take a guess at what the covers could possibly mean, you can check them out after the break!

SMILE EVERYONE! THE PODCAST IS HERE!Hello everyone! We had a lot of fun with this podcast on Equestria Girls.

Hey guys, rainbowdashzx here! I've been a PMV creator for four years now, I've collaborated with many creators from the fandom, and have recently come aboard Equestria Daily to write up PMV posts!
Today I bring you a wonderful, elegant and simple video. Something that is both equal parts simplistic, and artistic masterpiece! With a perfect blend of scene selection, color correction, and sense of atmosphere, CavePony shows you can do a lot with a little! Get it below!
Just in case you needed an excuse to speed up time by diving into a Civilization 5 match, Starlight Glimmer has been added as a playable character. Everyone's favorite misunderstood communist has a few abilities:
Unique Ability: No Pony Left Behind -- Halves unhappiness from number of citizens but also Halves Great Person creation rate.
Unique Unit: Cutie Unmarker -- A unique Lancer that cost half as much.
Unique Building: Cutie Mark Vault -- A unique Shrine that adds +1 Culture and + 1 Faith with no maintenance cost.
Go download it over here! And combine it with pony units, because why not.
There are a lot of big time business ponies in Friendship is Magic, with Filthy Rich, the guy that promotes Coloratura, and various others. For the most part, they are portrayed negatively, which seems to be a growing trend these days.
Why is that? Join Doodle Dabble for a sketchbook analysis on the very subject below!
SPOILER warning in the first two if you haven't been following the new pony. I kept the images clean of that, but if you click em, expect to see it!
Now go get your comics above and below the break.
Remember when Cheerilee and Big Mac were talked about constantly in the fandom? It's weird that Marble Pie is now Big Mac's big crush. Ah, times sure do change.
Morning everyone! Ready for chatter?
