Live in the Ohio area? Doing anything tomorrow (26th July)? Good, drop it. Because the guys behind the epic TrotCon event last week are hosting a meetup at the place where it all began – Momo’s in Columbus. However, this time the place is likely to shut down for good unless the $100,000 is raised by the end of this week to keep them being thrown out of its current location – and a Kickstarter fund will be started shortly. A press release is attached after this break that explains the situation in full – but if you can, get to Momo2 tomorrow afternoon and help support the place that really helped TrotCon get to where it is now.
And we know you’re all there, don’t try and hide!
The musical power house Sim Gretina has uploaded a remix of ‘Fruits of her labour’ by WoodenToaster and StormWolf. This remix features a beat by Supermen Lovers, slowed down vocals (A great way to learn the original vocals if you ask me, since it’s slowed down of course) and they are also pitched higher up to harmonize with the rest of the song.

After Rina-chan uploaded a small clip of her singing a brushie song for everyone’s favourite tooth-paste based pony Colgate, TheLivingTombstone made it his mission to make a remix of it…and he did! Using most of the vocals from the original video, a glitchy beat and brushing sounds he created an amazing remix based on brushing your teeth. I doubt you can find a better song to brush too so give it a listen, there’s even a free download option for you too!

Want to listen to a song about Applejack that’s fun, dancey and…sexy? Then head on over to General Mumble on youtube and give his new song ‘Appleshake’ a listen. Don’t worry there’s not actually any R34 stuff involved in the song, just some light ‘plot’ inspired synth and a few wubs here and there. Whether this song is about Apple milkshake or Applejack shaking is up to you.
Daily Oat Studios is proud to present the demo to our upcoming visual novel adaptation of My Little Dashie, by Robcakeran53! We were all very excited about what we had accomplished so far regarding the project, but also realized how much more of the story we had left to complete. As such, we decided to create this short demo to give you all a sneak peak of our what’s to come! As always, this is a work-in-progress, so there are quite a few things that will definitely be altered in the final release.
The main menu art for example. Yes, we are aware it is very silly. You’re welcome.
Our project tumblr can be found here as well.
And now, links!

The Brony Thank-You project has not lost steam over time from their inception, and now they have finally completed and green-lit a Hasbro-approved commercial spot for the Hub network. The next goal they are looking to accomplish before the commercial is set to air is to enlist the aid of brony musicians to provide a background track for the commercial spot, so they have decided to hold a competition for musicians to submit their work, where the winner will have their track finalized for the commercial!
All details about how musicians can enter for this contest can be found in the hyperlink below!
The Bit Bucket Brigade team have hosted a competition over on Ponychan to find the best Screenwriter and Storyboarders – and now we have winners! Check out the press release sent by John:
Greetings from the Bit Bucket Brigade!
After hours of debating we have come to you with the winners of both the screenwriting and storyboard competitions. These winners weren’t chosen lightly, we were amazed at the quality of our entries. Unfortunately we could only choose one winner for the screenwriting competition, but we made sure to give the runner ups a nod; there’s also a few honorable mentions as well.
The storyboard competition lent more leeway so we decided to crown not just the previously announced two but an additional four more. We are happy to announce a total of six new members of the Bit Bucket Brigade who will be contributing in several fields that involve their artistic creativity.
Guten Abend! If you’re going to the Galacon Convention this summer, then you might want to check out the press release that the team have sent us. This includes info about Legal Guardianship and Curfews, Badges (the pic of the guest badge is shown above) and info about questions to the Guests of Honor – so its pretty important to check out before you head to Stuttgart. You can read the full press release after the break – Danke Schön!
A few more attendees have been confirmed for this year’s Canterlot Garden event – which is becoming more and more like a Comic Con event each day. The always shy yet outgoing Andrea Libman will be on hand to talk to the brony masses and to increase the party percentage even further than Andrew WK on his own. She actually confirmed her attendance on her birthday yesterday – our best wishes to her from TDO!
Joining her will be Quinton Flynn – if you don’t know, he’s the voice of Raiden in the Metal Gear Solid video game series (something I’ve become a bit addicted to of late), as well as also doing work in Mass Effect 3 and Final Fantasy. Another random edition, but will no doubt add to an increasing impressive roster for this year’s event. The staff are now looking for people to help volunteer their help to make it a great convention this September. Check all the details in their Press Release after this break.
In perhaps the greatest example of blink-and-you’ll-miss-it in the fandom, the Derpy toy from Comic Con sold out as quickly as it went up. The estimated time between sale and sold out was 13 minutes, and unfortunately it caught some people out. Well done to those who got one – for everyone else, we just don’t know what went wrong. Check the listing here.
