Excuse me... did someone say they wanted PMVs? |your order is just below the break|

Comic Post #10 Damn It, Pinkie Pie / The C Word / Facecamo / Where the Sun Never Sets / Pie vs Pie 1

I want to be a Hero [Shaded] by tamalesyatole

Time for Halloween. I think I'll be dressing up as Twilight, for she is most bad ass pony. Except maybe Daring Do. And Rainbow Dash. Comics, have them.

A Derpy Love Story [Comic Dub]

"I brought you a letter!"

This blog has a disturbing lack of Derpy and therefore a lack of cuteness. I'm going to fix that. Break through the break to see it.

Happy Birthday Swat!

Go celebrate in the comments!

Artsy-Wartsy Stuff #6

I've been thinking... When life gives you lemons... Don't make lemonade... LOVE AND TOLERATE THE FyayK OUT OF THEM!

Head on over for art after the break (Now with 20% more wallpaper)

PMV: Skyfall / Cooking By The Book, Pinkie Pie style / indestructible

Due to my loathing of "Slow Day" posts I went into PMV finding overdrive and came up with these |enjoy them after the break|

Trig Rant #4 A Canterlot's Writing

You're the Song of my Life
and my Love by johnjoseco (modified)

The season two finale was one of the most anticipated events of my entire life. Few releases have topped my anticipation levels for this pair of episodes back in April of 2012.

The question is: Did it deliver?

This isn't quite a review of A Canterlot Wedding parts one and two, but what I think went wrong with the two episodes. I'll still point out some of the positives as I go, but as a whole the rant will be on what didn't work.

Click here for a refresher on the season two finale. Enjoy yourself? I did. Now click "read more" for my labyrinth of logic. I know I've asked you to click so many things, but bear with me, this'll be the last one.

Megathread: HUGS!!!!!!

Copypaste, you know what to do:

The Great and Powerful Trixie has given you the opportunity to give you the magic of hugs and why it is important for everypony to love and tolerate. This provides optimistic approaches and satisfaction to you and everypony to have as much hugs (and cuddles) as possible.

Discussion Question: How important is hugs to you and why it makes everypony to smile smile smile? Leave your comments below.

Thank Nykkes64 for the suggestion!!! (Everypony gets free hugs!!)

Crowdsourced Q&A #1: Brony Study

A tribute to Brony Study by ~KryptidAnimals on deviantART

We blog moderators here at EqM have been chatting about the possibility of organizing Q&As with various constituent groups and individuals in the brony community. But these will be Q&As with a twist. We will be collecting our questions from you, our commenters, right in the comments section!

For our first Q&A, we will be collecting questions for Dr. Redden and Dr. Edwards, the scientists working on the Brony Study research project. These two scientists, with the eager aid of tens of thousands of bronies, have collected an incredible amount of data about the brony community (since very early on in the brony community's existence, when compared to studies of other online communities). This data set has helped them test the veracity of many early-forming stereotypes about the brony community as well as create a typology to help describe and interpret the brony community, and maybe one day it will yield hints about the nature of the earliest phases of community formation on the internet: a notoriously difficult area to study. Dr Redden and Dr Edwards are currently preparing for their "longitudinal study", an experiment where they will collect data over the course of a few years to gain insights into how the brony community changes over time.

So if you have any questions for Dr. Redden and Dr. Edwards, please leave them in the comments below! Also if you don't have IntenseDebate or just don't want to comment here, there is now a thread up on Ponychan for anonymous commenting.
