Calling all musicians! Bronies for Good is organizing its fifth charity album, Shine Together, and we will be accepting submissions all summer long.
Thanks to the tremendous work of the music community, the ongoing Seeds of Kindness 3 fundraiser together with the two previous ones have raised over $100,000 from online donations alone, supporting various Your Siblings and Engineers Without Borders projects in Uganda, Burundi, and Tanzania. We incorporated a few suggestions and rule changes to make this work even better for the musicians, and we would like to ask for your help to support the outstanding work of the Against Malaria Foundation!
Yesterday, San Diego Comic Con came to close.

PictishBeast, a member of the Round Stable, posted several pictures taken along with some information on upcoming comics and some questions answered by the MLP comic staff that attended the panel. The information can be found past the break.
An announcement from our friends in the Big Easy!
DerpyCon South’s hotel block needs to be filled, so we are giving away free passes with the extra incentive of an Alicorn pass if we meet 80% of our block! An Alicorn pass comes with a night in the hotel, so if you win that you basically come for free, get awesome swag, VIP status, and the best time at the con! Getting a hotel room before the cutoff date of August 15th will IMMENSELY help the convention, not only this year but next as well.
We are giving away 1 Alicorn pass*, 2 sponsorship passes*, 4 weekend passes and 6 day passes to be chosen randomly from those who register their hotel rooms at our discount rate of $99 in the DCS hotel block below.
However, this opportunity will only be available until August 15th, *and the Alicorn pass and Sponsorship Passes will be replaced with weekend passes if we do not reach 150 room nights.**
So what are you waiting for, get your hotel booked today! Each night booked counts as one entry!
(**if you don’t win a pass, you’ll get an extra hour in our rock quarry)
For those of you who are curious as to why I gave “Two Pets for Two Pests” a 3/10, much of it boils down to how awful the B-plot was. If I were to score the two plots separately, the A-plot would’ve gotten a 7/10 (at most) while the B-plot deserves a 0/10 given the mean-spiritedness of the whole thing. With that out of the way, we come to “Feud for Thought” which apparently shows how little thought was given into telling cohesive stories.
The biggest problem with both plots here is that nothing really happens for the first two acts and the third act has both plots hand-waived after it does take two seconds for Blythe to come up with the solution. The B-plot is that Whittany gets a higher grade on a test (D-) than Brittany (no points for guessing what she got). Brittany essentially tells Whittany to go hang with the “smart kids.” And for economy cast purposes, the “smart kids” are Blythe (B+), Sue (B), Youngmee (A-), and Jasper (not said, but likely nowhere near B). Actually, it’s really Whittany being an annoyance to them while Brittany is feeling lonely. That’s really it for the first two acts.
