And we’re only getting more and more articles about bronies in the off-season. USAToday wrote a few facts about bronies article, after watching the documentary, that gives a deeper look on what we bronies really are. If you want to see a relatively reputable article describing shortly just how amazingly talented we generally are and not crazy about the
unnaturally fruit-esque truly childish marketing oriented older shows people usually relate to us, then you can read the article here.
Ever wondered who would win in a fight between a giant robot and a pony? The Escapist was, so they posted a video of what it would be like for the two of them to go toe-to-toe! Head over here to see how it ends, or just go below the break where we have it available to watch.
We’re also aware that this has been out for about two years, but this is to take note of the fact that The Escapist is carrying an article with ponies, not that the video is new.
And its name is “Seed No Evil.” This doesn’t really even need an explanation; head over here to watch it on Vimeo, or just head past the break where we’ve got it as well! Stay sexy, Sherclop.
EDIT: It seems the Vimeo video was taken down because it was . . . released early? Who knows. Here is the link to the YouTube version. We replaced the video below as well.
The publisher behind the latest (and upcoming) MLP books has released a brochure detailing some future releases – one of which sounds fairly intriguing for those of an anthropological nature. Set for release in October (which fits in with the Season 4 release date), ‘My Little Pony – Super Special’ has quite the interesting synopsis that details what could be what to expect from this ‘Equestria Girls’ franchise that everyone is getting
butthurt excited about. It also further supports the idea that this will be the feature-length episode (or ‘movie’) that’s been touted. You can check the synopsis after the break – there’s also a description for the Rainbow Dash novel written by G.M. Berrow, also after that there break.

Remember that documentary that came out a few months ago titled “Bronies: The Extremely Unexpected Adult Fans of My Little Pony” and the extended interviews that it got released with about a month after? Well, there’s even more footage that they want to release to the fandom!
They are currently fundraising to release this material to the public, and need the money to afford the editing, splicing, and commerce to make it a professional release, through their Indiegogo campaign. At the time of the writing of this post, their modest goal of $15,000 is already 1/3 paid for. Considering it went up earlier today, it looks like this fundraiser might break a record of fastest campaign goal ever reached or something.
Oh, and they also provided a video showcasing some of the material that you may get to see if the fundraiser completes on their page. How exciting!
Oh no! Looks like our friends over at Equestria Daily are a bit short-staffed; they asked us to put out this open bulletin asking for everyone to send in applications to help out with running their site!
Head below the break for a complete list of everything they need to fill their roster of prestigious positions.
Although it’s already pretty well known, The Hub have officially announced that Season 4 is on its way, through an article on Entertainment Weekly. It’ll have it all: Fast Kicking; Low Scoring; And Ties? You Bet! (oh, and something about the main character being a princess or whatever). The bad news is that all we have for a release date is ‘Winter’, contrary to rumours we would see the new episodes in Fall. It’s a long wait (again), but we shouldn’t be too bored until then – we have the successful comic books (oh – Micro Series #2 out today!), some literature on the way, a heap of Conventions around the world, and the supposed Equestria Girls announcement around Comic Con this year. So stay tuned!
For a lot of Bronies, Synchtube has been a great website for getting together with friends from around the world to watch their favourite episodes and talk nonsense about them. However, the website has today been shut down due to the owners’ “current career paths” meaning running the website becoming untenable. It’s a shame for many people who use the Synchtube service for episode/fan video marathons, which we used to list before each new episode, and it will also be missed for the events that usually occur over these hiatus periods between seasons. There is a silver lining: the owners do have plans to make it open-source so it may come back in some way or another, but for the time being Bronies will have to find another way to join together for their love of synchronized cartoon equines.
It’s a sad day when we lose something as big as Fighting is Magic. However, not all hope may be lost. The Mane6 megapost detailing this can be found right here.

John De Lancie to Attend BUCK,
Just received a message from Slightly Eccentric from B.U.C.K. with some excellent news!:
Another BUCK Update!
The BronyCon Documentary’s Kickstarter campaign just hit $255,323. Added to the Paypal amount of $18,435 equates to a grand total of $273,758 (and still counting)! BUCK has received an email from John de Lancie himself confirming that he and Documentary crew will therefore definitely be attending BUCK this year.
Needless to say, we’re all jolly excited here in little ol’ Britain.
Jolly excited, indeed! Unfortunately, we are unconfirmed as to whether or not John De Lancie will be attending Galacon. Stay tuned for more on the latest.
