We’re about a month late in getting this out, but help doesn’t stop being needed overnight, and we just recently got word of this. Today is Lindsey’s sixth birthday, and she needs help. For years now, she has been battling cancer, and her family is up to their ears in debt. At the rate things are going, her family will lose their home; we know this won’t bode well for her. If you’d like the full story, you can head here for what she’s been through as written by her brother, Jason (that brony in the picture). You can also head below the break to watch a video in which Lindsey plays with the ponies her brother has given her. If any time is a good time to give what you can, it would be now.
Because 2013 isn’t retro enough, we decided to use last year’s banner for tonight’s post.
To those who are attending TrotCon, they have published their convention schedule here. They have all kinds of crazy events planned, from explaining Homestuck to Mad Libs, for your entertainment pleasure. If you’re attending, make sure to have a good time, because if you don’t, you didn’t try hard enough.
Like tuning into awesome livestream events in the name of great things for bronies? So do we! According to those holding the event, Bronies for Good, The Traveling Pony Museum, The Brony Show, and Ponys Live Now (not sure if it’s Ponies or Ponys, they said Ponys) will all be hosting a full 24-hour livestream with plenty of giveaways and events planned. The stream, when it happens, will be located here. Make sure to show up and give your support! Head after the break for the full breakdown of what’s being given away and some specifics of what’s going on during the livestream.
Thought that Galacon’s only big event was the gala? Surely you jest! This year, Galacon will be having an art gallery full of submissions from members of the art community to showcase some of the artistic talent held by some of our bronies. If you’re an artist and would like to strut your stuff, or are interested in learning more about the gallery, head here to do so.
Additionally, Galacon now has their charity auction donations open! All of the proceeds that result from the auction will go to Bronies for Good, who will ensure that all of that money will go to a great cause. Head here for more information on the auction. If you’d like to read Galacon’s words on the matter, past the break as usual!
Remember that announcement we did a while back about the news station asking for brony stories for a news segment? Well, they delivered! Head past the break to see what News 4 in Alabama has to say about bronies, or head here to watch it on their website.
Another week means more oatmeal to digest! This week we have something from Michelle Creber, some sister love, a perfect example of pony communism, some Trixie, a Daft Punk cover PMV, Scootaloo doin’ stuff, an assertion of the superiority of unicorns, Pinkie Pie on a mug, a song about Fluttershy, Babs Seed in Polish, Fluttershy with a ponytail, Fluttershy with a hippie, a Pinkie Pie tutu/dress combo that can be won in a raffle, some Derpy Hooves and Rarity necklaces, Pirate Dash, Pinkie Pie in a Japanese thing, and a game in which you are Twilight Sparkle!
As the days count down to Everfree Northwest, the event keeps looking better and better with each new piece of news, and if everypony wasn’t going to have a spectacular time there before, it’s almost a guarantee by now. Check after the break for the awesome tabletop RPG, online MMORPG, and actual game development events one will be able to try out!
There’s been a lot said about the new franchise in the last 24 hours, but little has been made public about what access people outside the US and Canada will have to the film. However, Licensing.biz has announced that Shout! Factory, the company responsible for distributing other Pony videos, has now gained worldwide distribution rights for the film, promising a release on “the home entertainment marketplace and a variety of digital entertainment platforms in North America and international territories later this year”. Although the agreement with Shout! Factory was already known, this seems to be the first confirmation that foreigners might see this outside of a shaky-cam recording across twelve separate YouTube videos. Check the press release here.
In a freak landslide of sh*t that I totally predicted, pictures have leaked of Equestria Girls dolls. Now, as much as I feel that Hasbro was in it for the money and absolutely nothing else, I’ll try to be as unbiased as possible in reporting this news.
The original thread on /mlp/ can be found right here, and literally everyone with an internet connection is posting in it- Purple Tinker, Moot, and the most high Queen Faust herself. It was all started by a tweet by Fyre_flye, which was posted on /mlp/. With big names like these getting in on the action, and with hundreds of posts coming in by the minute, this is going to be one of the great historic threads of our time. Go over and check it out. Click on the ‘more’ tab for my opinion.
And so it begins. Reddit has found a link to a Russian toy site that has released what seems to be the first images of toys associated with the EG movie expected next month. On first observance they seem to be pretty similar to the spoiler image that was leaked a while back (with the cutie mark face tattoos and freakishly large lips), except Twilight decided to wear a rag with a ‘T’ on it. But hey – Applejack has a new hat, so you better buy them all now.
Check out the listing on lillru.ru here, and the Reddit post here.
