Well, slow news week is slow, but I guess there just isn’t that much going on in the world of ponies, minus of course the news EqD gets, but even then its been minor. There’s a new Eurobeat and 8 Bit tracks that will be coming here later in the evening (if you didn’t catch them on EqD), but right now I’m looking for some help.
I mentioned this in one of the previous post, I’d like to collect all the pony videos that I can on this site for our media section, and I ask you guys for some help. Basically I’m looking for links to all videos that are not featured here in the media section, and yes before Captain Obvious Pony comes in and tells me to go lift them from EqD, I do plan on doing that at some point, but as said my time grows limited in these warm months, so it would work out easier if my mailbox was filled. You don’t have to be the author/creator, and hell if someone wants to go over to EqD, click the video label and go through and make a list, that would be awesome. This is a summer project, so of course there is no rush.
Hopefully the community has calmed down about the Lauren Faust thing, yes that was a biggie in the news world, and I know in certain corners it became a quick shitstorm, but at least in my neck of the woods (IrcHighway) it was pretty calm. To quote someone, Faust is the creator of the world, but she didn’t hand make all the episodes of Season 1, she basically did what she is doing with Season 2, so there should be very little worry about what Season 2 will be, it still has her touch. If there is a Season 3, then I’d start to worry. But again as Faust said, she is done, but so is pre-production of the show.
So all should be well and hopefully we have ponies again by October. There’s no official date of course, just a guess, which I think is based on the schedule of the first season. Its known that Season 2 production will wrap up sometime at the end of December / start of January, and some did assume that would mean season 2 would start then. BUT Season 1 didn’t wrap up until that time last year, thus I predict October.
That’s all for now, submissions can be mailed to [email protected], feel free to use that form I have under the submit button, but I think some people are turned off by it, either way works fine.
PS: No word yet on Mentos/TrollHD of Episode 26, his google doc has yet to change.
Just in on the Derpy News Floor from TGTF of the IRCHighway IRC #mylittlepony room (where I hang out).
Project Tales of Equestria
With the end of season 1 bronies everywhere are left with at least 6 months of poniless void to face. And in times like this are perfect chances to bring up interesting projects to entertain and bring together the fan base with a great project. It all occurred to me after reading some of recent releases of Avatar comics, taking old franchises and creating compilations of stories by different artists.
Then I thought, this fanbase have great artists and writers, so what if we bring all this talented people to work together on a big project to help bronies face the poniless months and have something to talk about. The project would consist of a compilation of stories by different artists and writers, all of them not too long, something about 10 pages tops and with free theme with obvious restrictions of course. That would give an opportunity to everypony to work on their skills and give aspiring comic artist a chance to play around a little.
Now have in mind that this is a project in development and a lot of things are still to be set, but with the help of other artists i'm pretty sure can pull it out.
Here are the basic guidelines set so far.
- Try to keep the stories mostly PG13, with a few exceptions.
- Stories be around 3 to 10 pages long.
- All themes are a go, stories don't need to follow any canon or fanon, just be good and fun.
- Artist must use the A4, 72 dpi, RGB standard format.
- Closed stories would be better, but something continuous can be considered.

Hope i can count with you guys.
I'd be in, if I had some talents in art or writing (well, I do with writing but have yet to do a pony fanfic).
If you are pondering about the HD downloads, according to Mentos’ google doc that contains all the download links, he’s out of town this weekend, so the HD downloads will not be around just yet, probably tomorrow or Tuesday.
I did though get a link from MichaelXX2 and their youtube channel which has a 720 version to watch, so have some HD ponies this Sunday.
