In a freak turn of events that nobody really expected, Nicole Oliver has been announced as a guest at BABSCON 2014! Hailing from the frigid homeland of bacon and the moose cavalry, Nicole Oliver is most famous for being the queen and overlord of Equestria, as well as a teacher on the side. She will be gracing the bay area, bringing blessings of ham and red jackets. For more information, stay tuned after the break for more. BABSCON is in Burlingame, CA, April 18-20.
Unfortunately, this flew under our radar slightly, but details have been confirmed of a party taking place in London next month – and not just any party, a Super Winter Brony Party (that’s 3 extra words, so you know it’s good!). Taking place on Saturday 25th January next year, the event at Pause Bar in the East End will host an impressive roster of celebrity and fan guests to make it a wild shindig. Artists who will provide live music include Acoustic Brony, Eilemonty, JayB, DJ Sleepypony, HMage and even The Living Tombstone - and the shindig will also host popular show VAs Anneli Heed (Spitfire – Swedish) and Julie Basecqz (Rarity – French) – with the VIP list set to increase. Best of all, it’s completely free to attend – but you’ll be the coolest person there if you help with any donations.
If you want to go, you’ll need to register on the guest list either by email or on the UK of Equestria website – check out the full details over on their website.
One thing that most bronies don’t think about is the amount of time and effort that they have put into the show and the fandom. Thinking logically about it, there would be far more free time in my day if I hadn’t filled it with ponies. This is a choice, not an obligation; perhaps all addicts say that about their problems, but I think that watching an educational, entertaining show for girls is ultimately a better decision of wasting time than slowly giving myself cancer, finding inebriated promiscuous women at questionable social events, or searching for solace in likewise illegal activities.
So, for the sake of argument, let’s say that ponies are not an addiction; that we can all kick them out of our lives at any time, there will be no residual effects, and life will go on as it normally does, sans the ponies. Now we’re getting to where there’s sacrifice—time freely devoted to a cause. Jroddie, as some of you may have noticed, has been posting a lot more articles recently; this isn’t because he likes season 4, however. He still hates the direction that the show is taking, convinced that matters have gotten progressively worse since Lauren Faust departed our fair show.
I agree with him: Things have gotten worse since Lauren Faust left. However, my beef isn’t with the show itself.
This week, EMF ventures into Daring Do!
Imagine being a card game arms dealer, getting exclusive access to a new card game, and getting a lot of high expectations boxes filled with awesome merchandise, which you’re very skeptical about emptying.
Well, that’s what Black Diamond Games was thinking when they bought into the pre-release MLP CCG. As shown in this article, Gary Ray was pleasantly surprised that this new game, at release, was far more popular than a good number of card games that he’s bought into before. The nod at brony dedication is pretty heartwarming for this Christmas season, wouldn’t you say?
in a freak turn of events that nobody really expected, Legends of Equestria has announced an open server weekend for January 24th through to the 26th!

Anyways, the servers will open on 12:01am EST on January 24th and close at 11:59pm on January 26th. They also announce that the open server weekend will coincide with their open panel at Ohayocon!

Okay, I’ve met you halfway. You don’t have to read the rest of this article because I’ve hidden it from you. But if you do, be warned- SPOILERS AHEAD!
In a freak turn of events that nobody really expected, Daniel Ingram has announced on his facebook page that the official scores from MLP seasons 1 and 2 are now available on itunes! The music is available for immediate download on itunes, but if you’re still clinging vainly to the past, it will be also available at an unannounced date on chromed frisbee. You may know Daniel Ingram from his almost-award winning career as a daytime television songwriter, but probably more so for Winter Wrap-up.
For those who don’t know what Nurse Redheart’s Roundup is, it’s a blood drive run by Bronies for Good that took place in the month of September. Well, September was a pretty narrow time frame, so they’re making things more efficient and meaningful to those in need. Head below the break to see everything that’s in store for the new Redheart’s Roundup.
After we finished freaking out about the Twilightception picture (above), we realized we had a new announcement to go along with it. So, while it saddens our hearts to see Ms. St. Germain unable to attend physically, BABScon now has a certain voice of a certain somepony who, as of the 2013 Herd Census, is best pony. See the entire news bulletin after the break.
