Ahaha, thank you Prism for dropping this off. Now somepony make’em some sprites to use for future episodes!
Another letter in the news mailbox, today’s a good day.
Senn555 of Ponychan is currently looking for signatures on a petition to show musical people that there is a need for a soundtrack album of FiM. Here is the Ponychan post (and link).
Also remember Ingram will be interviewed on the 26th.
Okay, here’s the deal.
I’m a HUGE soundtrack / film music aficionado, and as such, I personally know and can get in touch with many people working in the soundtrack industry. I’ve mentioned Friendship is Magic to several of them, but no one is willing to even touch this unless they see that the demand is there.
That is where this comes into play – I threw together this petition earlier today:
If we’re going to see a soundtrack album released on CD (or at least, increase the odds that it will happen), I need to gather up as many signatures as possible from you pony fans. I’ll send this off to the soundtrack guys once I see that a sizeable number of signatures have been collected.
Yes, spread the word about this petition, as much as you can! Word of mouth is the #1 factor in ensuring this gets as many signatures as possible.
Go check it out!
Thanks for reading~
Eurobeat Brony has released the next preview of Europener Mix, and is seeking all the feedback on it that he can. So jump over to Bandpuff’s youtube channel and leave some for good old EbB.
Very entertaiing 7 minutes spoof of an investigative report on Bronies. Dropped off by Wolfenbarg in the news mailbox. Check it out, two words though guys, sound equalization, you may have to bounce the volume back and forth, but still worth it :)
I will my typical Steven Colbert stance and scream “Nooo” for no DerpyHooves love, but I love being the Colbert. Bonus points for the few outtakes at the end (and muffin points for sticking Derpy graphic at the very end).
Alright! So I’ve decided that I’m going to hold a small contest!
The contest will be to take a video game, and somehow work MLP: FiM characters in it, or vice-versa!
Here are the rules:
-Must have at least 500 words. That is the minimum (Aim for a thousand!).
-Must have Ponies (Duh)
-Must be VIDEO GAEM related
-Nothing super explicit; meaning no excessive gore, super kinky things, or anything like that.
–Steven Magnet counts as a pony. And so does Spike.
The prize for this contest will be any game on Steam that is under $10 :D
Here is a link to Games under $10
When you have the story completed, please submit it to me at[email protected]
The message title should be ‘Story Contest’
In the email you should provide the link to the story, the author name, and what game it’s based off of.
The contest deadline has not been decided yet, and the contest hasn’t been finalized.
The rules will be the same, so you can go ahead and start writing and submitting now.
To remove any confusion, there WILL be a winner. The number of winners is still not decided.
Just in on the Derpy Hooves news floor (or submit inbox)…
On May 26th 2011, from 2pm to 3pm PST (5pm to 6pm EST), Daniel Ingram, musical composer of FiM will be interviewed by The Fan. You might remember these guys from the Tara Strong interview, though I’m sure Ingram is probably more aware (especially by now) of the fandom that dwells on the internet.
All bronies are welcome to join The Fan’s IRC channel during the interview, which can be found on the Rizon network, #918thefan. If you’re not an IRC user, you can hit up the web chat. And of course you can listen via the giant [LISTEN NOW] button found on their website, 918thefan.com.
If you’re not going to be around, well then you can catch the recording which will be uploaded to their website, and possibly a youtube afterwards (depending on edit time). So either way, you won’t miss it.
