Getting really hard to find a Derpy picture that isn’t depressing. Yes it may be depressing, but it shouldn’t stop the happy pictures. Don’t forget tomorrow is dubbed “Derpy Day” which we kind of missed last year due to the whole 4chan war between the pony community and mods. February is not a good month for this community. Anyways, time for a new mailbag.
The My Little Dashie Show
New Livestream Show going around that talks about ponies, hosted by My Little Dashie (@MyLittleDashie). The show airs on Mondays and Thursdays at 9pm and just had its maiden voyage this monday with guests Gendid (DHN) and Brony Dance Party. The livestream channel can be found here.
The Traveling Pony Museum
But first let me introduce myself. My name is Inky Notebook. I’m the creator and organizer for the Traveling Pony Museum, a little project of mine to help get artists out into the community.
The museum has taken on quite a few more artists since the debut post over on EQD a mere few days ago. Here is the current list that will continue to be updated : https://docs.google.com/document/d/11eugpowof2I6DgDBjDAezuD_ihhEWT0fIZyg6jBDu94/edit
The museum has also been given Monster Pie, the enormous Pinkie Pie plushie that has become famous over at BronyCon. She will be traveling with the museum all across the US so be on the lookout for a chance to see her! The museums traveling schedule will be secured and released soon.
The museum also now has a deviant art group page where there is a tentative collection of the works that will be featured! http://mlp-fim-tpm.deviantart.com
I’d also like to thank our three donors, Purple Tinker, Corey McClure and Alexander Kaiser for helping to sponsor the museum.
But! The museum still needs plenty of help!
All donations raised will go towards commissions and travel expenses for the museum so it will be able to make it’s way to all the upcoming conventions including Everfree NW, Bronies Ohio, Bronies DC, Bronies Boston and all the NYC montly Bronies meetups! All donations can go via PayPal to [email protected]
The museum is still looking for more artists as well! Don’t be afraid to send an email over to [email protected]

My Little Brony – A Cultural Theory Class Paper
At base level, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic is an animated children’s show centred around Habsro’sMy Little Pony toy line. Like the rest of the sparkle-and-pastel-doused My Little Pony line, its target demographic is young girls—Hasbro states it outright on their site; their catalogue lists fifteen pony toys under “girls” but only one under “both genders.” Objectively speaking using Roland Barthes’ Myth Today,while there is nothing inherently feminine about the colour pink, rainbows, cupcakes, or magical ponies, society insists these things signify femininity and therefore cannot be enjoyed by masculine individuals1. Paradoxically, however, one of its largest peripheral audience groups is young-adult males.2 The male audience has opened up an interesting discussion about society’s imposition of gender onto biological males and females; internet anonymity has allowed young men to unabashedly enjoy all manner of cute and glittery entertainment media without worrying about the masculinity of their real-life identity being put in jeopardy. While this new freedom of expression is liberating to many “bronies” (portmanteau of bros and ponies), lots of young men are still struggling with masculine ideals conflicting with their individual interests.

A Livestream channel that takes requests on playing Pony PMVs. Runs from 5pm ET to 6pm ET. Doesn’t specify days but I’m guessing daily. Its noted on the e-mail that on weekends, broadcasts will be earlier and most of the time they are longer than the time specified.
