A lot of people sick of Trixie in that survey earlier, so I should probably get her out of my system! Poor Trixie.
We have a bunch of bonus music tonight for anyone looking to dive into the stuff that didn't quite hit spotlight. Head on down below to listen to 10 new songs!
Acoustic Music: The L-Train - Daring Did Theme / GhostXb - Gallant Girls / Daniel Ingram - The Spectacle (Elias Frost Cover)by ExplodingPonyToast
Here we have a collection of 3 awesome non-electronic tracks!
First up, whilst The L-Train normally produces heavier stuff than this, he's dusted off some orchestral libraries to produce a fitting theme for a friend's fanfic about Daring Do. As would be expected, it has a very adventurous feel to it, and fits the character really well. Second we have a light orchestral piece from GhostXb about the Equestria Girls in their new Legends of Everfree getup. This piece is very heroic-sounding, and focuses on quite bright-sounding instruments with a whole heap of woodwind and brass. Finally, Elias Frost delivers a pretty awesome cover of The Spectacle, taking it into a new style with an industrial German-language cover. I really like the new take he's got on it, especially those chord stabs around a minute in. Check them all out below the break!
The next two dolls from Integrity Toys are now listed on their store. Each with a 500 figure limit. They are pretty pricey, so expect to drop a bit of money if you want to collect them.
Have some links:
Rarity™ Inspired Dressed Fashion Figure
Applejack™ Inspired Dressed Fashion Figure
So.. what do you think? Are they a couple now? Bonus points for Flutterbat.
Note: Trying a Humanized / Anthro section out. We don't get any submissions of this, so please send them in if you want to see it in drawfriend. This will be below regular pony art.
Go get art below!

Metal Music: SDreamExplorerS - Trust Me! (feat. Francis Vace) / Velvet Wings & SDreamExplorerS - Little Feather / Thrasher - Orbit (Vylet Vocal Edit)by ExplodingPonyToast
Due to the insane amount of releases over the last week music posts will revert back to small compilations instead of single posts when there are tracks that work well together, at least until the amount of music is more manageable. Here we have a collection of awesome metal tracks that are all pretty great!
First is a heavy metal track from SDreamExplorerS featuring vocals from Francis Vace. The use of lyrics from 'It's Gonna Work' turned out incredibly well here! The second track is a collaboration between SDreamExplorerS and Velvet Wings. Velvet Wings' vocals do wonders for this track, which is backed up by a really strong instrumental, and overall it comes off feeling quite a lot like something Nightwish would do. Definitely some pretty awesome symphonic metal! Finally, we have a piece where Vylet has taken Thrasher's original track Orbit, and added some really cool vocals to it. You can check all of them out below the break!
Community Soapbox #5 - Rainbow Dash's Ego, Imploding Brony Fandom, Guardians of Harmony Series, and More!by Sethisto
Apparently it's really hard to keep these on a schedule. This week's community soapbox is all compiled up and ready for you all to dive in and opinionate. If you have no idea what these are and suddenly find an urge to write something, head over to the submission info post.
Below the break, the community tackles the following subjects:
- How Egocentric Rainbow Dash is
- Changeling Origins
- Credit Where Due (Pinkie Pie Editorial)
- Give Guardians of Harmony A Series
- Imploding Community? UMM NO.
Go get them below!
The Cutie Mark Crusaders and Discord. Which is the greater instrument of true chaos?
We have the unstoppable force meeting the adorable objects in this issue. Let's talk things up!
After you've read the issue, of course. Watch out for spoilers!
We've done a few of these over the past year, and while they haven't done a whole lot to help the site grow, they have made it better for a lot of you who come here every day for your pony. We are looking into getting our very first advertisement out for problem #1, but #2 is something we can always improve!
The last few times we did this, we really didn't have any good material to reference from going forward other than digging into hundreds of comments, so this time we are doing it in survey format. It covers the basics in each specific section that we can take to a second post and go through.
I've always tried to keep you all in the loop on how we are doing things here, but I admit, I stopped doing it as often as I should which has created a boatload confusion surrounding the site over the past few years. Hopefully this can get us all on the same page.
The survey covers a lot of things, and all questions are optional if they don't pertain to you at all. Feel free to skip around or do the entire thing, it's up to you.
TL;DR If you want to help EQD improve, please check out our survey!
Note: Please be honest too! We won't hate you if you complain. We won't even know who you are.
It's that time of the month again where you can relive fond memories of the past month gone by in an effort to choose your favourite videos and songs from the fandom to vote for! October had a whole heap of awesome stuff, so I know it's at least going to be tough for me to decide what to give my vote to. You can vote for the top songs here (with a handy refresher playlist here of a majority of the songs released last month), and you can vote for the top videos in the comments of the video after the break. So make sure to check out the voting videos for both below the break!
AJ Young is back with another heavy dubstep tune. This one is from his new EP, Make Noise. Whilst this track is produced really well and has some awesome wub design, arguably the best part about it is the incredibly tongue-in-cheek synthesised vocals. With gems like 'better include an overused Pinkie Pie sample so it can get on EQD', among other things, it makes for a highly amusing and yet still strongly produced track. so make sure to check it out if that sounds like something you'd be into!
