Who wants a charity livestream? We do! Ponyville Live, Your Siblings, and Bronies for Good are going to be running one this very Saturday with esteemed show talent Amy Keating Rogers (writer for episodes such as Bridle Gossip, The Cutie Pox, and Filli Vanilli) and Natasha Levinger (writer for Pinkie Apple Pie and the upcoming episode 16 of season 4). They’ll be having fun and raising money for a great cause and also answering plenty of questions we may have for them, so feel free to participate and enjoy yourselves in the stream, which is right here. Check out the full announcement and all the big details, such as what causes this fundraiser will be going toward, below the break.
Our friends over at Everfree NW in Seattle have sent over a brand new press release detailing their latest guest announcements – which will be of interest to those of you who are fans of the official comics. Georgia Ball – author of the popular Princess Celestia Micro Comic, and Heather Nuhfer – writer for the equally popular Nightmare Rarity story arc, will be gracing the Washington convention with their presence this year. If you’re a fan of either or both of these two talented scribes, then check out EFNW’s press release after the break!
Soon, ponies like this will be available for children to print, too! Thanks to Clawed-Nyasu for the picture.
The world is a swiftly changing place. Atomic bombs now serve as dinner tables, the aging process has now been all but abolished, and we’re able to print 3D ponies. Only one of these futuristic things is true, sadly, but Hasbro knows the direction the world is taking, and they are aiming to bring ponies to the home… without having to leave your home. Ever. Nor would you have to open the front door and sign for a package. Or even leave the computer chair.
That’s right, Hasbro is working on 3D printing for the average consumer’s children now. There’s no telling what we’re going to see out of this, but we can hope this ushers in a new age of amazing pony things we can get in the home through their new partnership with the 3D printing company 3D Systems. You can check out the full article from The Guardian over here.
Who would have thought? A song that was produced in 2012 by composer Dan Schutte, known as “Glory to God,” happens to bear a striking similarity to a certain very familiar theme song. Seeing as the G4 theme song was created by Daniel Ingram first, we can only assume that Dan Schutte heard it, thought to himself, “You know what this would sound really great as? Church music,” and got to work. The full article, where you can hear a comparison between the two songs, is over here. The only thing that I can think is, at least the church-goer who noticed this has decent hobbies.
Plans for this year’s BUCK convention are shaping up after the announcement of a new venue the other week, and now they have their first wave of special guests. G.M. Berrow, writer of the MLP novels and upcoming Daring Do series, will be heading to Manchester in August, as well as some well known personalities from around the community. Check out BUCK Con’s press release after the break!
Spoiler alert: It’s about Fluttershy. Thanks to Infinitoa for his adorable picture!
And so, if you are unable to wait just one more day for some information on the episode, Entertainment Weekly has become our go-to for the pre-episode spoiler. You can enjoy it in all its yay-ness over here and get excited and stuff.
You can only choose one to be best pony; who will it be? Well, thankfully you don’t have to choose best voice talent, because Andrea Libman will be there, and she voices both of them! What’s that, your favorite pony isn’t Fluttershy or Pinkie Pie? Then head to Edmonton BronyExpo and let them help you change your mind!
But wait, there’s more! Ever wondered who it was that introduced you to all the wonders of Appleloosa? Spearheaded the Buffalo Relocation Project? Nearly ended the war singlehandedly?
Has some questionable fanart? Then look no further than his voice talent, Michael Daingerfield! He’ll be there to rival Andrea and try to steal our hearts as best pony at the same expo. The announcement from the convention can be found after the break.
Be warned: Don’t check out these articles unless you’re either looking for something to rage senselessly about or can laugh at yourself. Some of the comical claims made in these articles have been known to induce butthurt.
All right, so first up today, we have an article from Taki’s Magazine on how the writer will “never stop making fun of wimps, metrosexuals, beardists, dogmatic fatsos, Gawker fags, Daily Kos beta males, MSNBC bitches, transgendered whiners, Clay Aiken, commies, yoga, plushies, infantilists, maskers, and cuddle parties, but the autistic fan base of a social-interaction cartoon is different.” The fan base that’s different, of course, is our little brony fandom. You can find the article here.
Our other negatory article for today, this coming from NYU Local, is about someone who was researching bronies, was apparently browsing Tumblr for information on us, and came across something too graphic for The Daily Oat to report on–okay, we can, but we’re not going to. This is full of action, adventure, stereotyping and profiling, and inaccurate information on the takedown of the Princess Molestia Tumblr. Hunter S. Thompson would be proud.
Ponies have been doing a world tour of sorts, with Hasbro being active during the Toy Fair season. At New York City’s variant, their Investor Event spread some light on what to expect from the company in the future. MLP featured fairly heavily as one of the key brands, and some interesting information came to the fore. Spoilers can be found after the break!
