    SEAPonyCon Orchestra Performance Appears on Online News Site



    Looks like SEAPonyCon is getting a little bit of attention from online media! Let our friend Squeaky Belle explain:

    My IRL friend was the one who recently conducted the first ever live brony orchestra (Seapony Orchestra) over at SEAPonyCon. One of the senior members from marelaysia did a writeup for him and sent it into one of the local news sites which supports local talents (he's Malaysian).

    And it got featured! Now more people in the country will know about the brony fandom (they barely have any clue it exists lol).

    A cute and childish pioneer
    "My Little Pony": an 80's precursor

    For little girls in the 80's they were the most common thing, given that most cartoons at the time had a unicorn between their main characters. She-ra, He-Man's twin sister, fought evil riding a unicorn with rainbow wings; Rainbow Brite was an inseparable friend of Starlite, who had no horn, but did have a rainbow mane. Althought undoubtedly, it was My Little Pony's plastic horses the ones that awoke the fever. Hasbro launched them in 1983 and they had such a success that cartoons and animated movies came after it. Known as "bronies", fans reunite at BronyCon, an annual convention that started in New York and now is held in Baltimore. Althought these cartoons were targeted at girls, it's not them the ones who fill these events. 80% of bronies are men between 16 and 35 years old and show their devotion by getting pony costumes.

    Origamis and Chalk Drawings for GalaCon 2017 and the Czequestria 2017



    For the recent GalaCon 2017 and the Czequestria 2017 in Ludwigsburg / Germany respectively Prague / Czech Republic I created origamis of the respective con mascots and put them in little scenes refering the places of the cons. Both origami figures were sold at the respective events' charities auctions:
    Origami Canni Soda (mascot of the GalaCon) Origami Libussa (mascot of the Czequestria) alternative background version of Origami Libussa.

    At the GalaCon and the Czequestria I drew a lot of chalk ponies and invited others to draw along which I would also like to submit. These are the ones of the GalaCon:
    Chalk Applejack
    Chalk Rainbow Dash
    Chalk Apple Bloom
    Chalk Black Gryph0n
    Chalk Octavia
    Chalk Minuette / Colgate
    Chalk Spitfire

    Pointless Ponies Update: Going Fourth


    Bronies,

    We are under six weeks left until the MLP Movie and under eight weeks until Ponyville Ciderfest. That means I still need a few respondents for my surveys for "Pointless Ponies" at Ponyville Ciderfest at the Hyatt Regency Milwaukee on October 20-22. I have presented three pairs of questions so far:

    Survey 6A: http://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/3753409/Pointless-Ponies-6A

    1) Name as many named members of the Apple Family that have appeared on the show up to and including "The Perfect Pear".
    2) Match the member of the Mane Six with the fact for each of the seven parts.

    Survey 6B: http://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/3774608/Pointless-Ponies-6B

    1) Name as many named characters who made their debut in a two-part episode.
    2) Match the secondary character with the fact for each of the seven parts.

    Survey 6C: http://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/3784838/Pointless-Ponies-6C

    1) Name as many people who have written or co-written an episode between Seasons Four and Seven, but did not write an episode in Seasons One, Two, or Three. (In other words, he, she, or they started writing for the show in Season Four or later.)
    2) Fill in the missing blanks of the episode titles.

    Now, I introduce the fourth set of questions.

    Survey 6D: http://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/3801333/Pointless-Ponies-6D

    1) Name as many characters on the show whose name is two words. (Royal titles such as "Princess", "Prince", and "King" do not count.)
    2) Please name the city or town where the episode in question was primarily set.

    If you are unfamiliar with "Pointless", it is based off the British game show of the same name where the object is to guess the most obscure answers to survey questions. The fewer people who guessed a particular answer to a question, the better. There are prizes to be had for the winners and a special bonus prize for winning the bonus round which I won't say until Ponyville Ciderfest.

    Once again, your participation in these surveys is very important and greatly appreciated in order to make this a success at Ponyville Ciderfest.

    Thank you,
    StatManDan
