FPLOON: Guess which songs each of us put in this post?

Pony + Unreal Engine = Awesome

If you at least occasionally touch video games, you should know the Unreal Engine. Pretty impressive and powerful thing. The guy who made the video above combined it with a pony.
And it looks very good. It might be just a first tech demo with a pony walking around... For now.
Of course he plans on further developing it.
Look at its current state and imagine where it might lead to. What would you like to see being done with it?

Post your digital dreams in the comments and feel free to discuss.

The Animation Hour (Working Title)

You've probably have seen this animation earlier today, but what if I told you there are two other animations that you might not have seen after the break? Don't believe me, then see for yourself...

Twilight commands you to read [Comics].


Well, we ran a little low on comics recently. At least it felt like that. I guess... Have some new ones.
A lot of Twilight in here.

Artsy-Wartsy Stuff #180

Small Artsy again. Feels like a sine wave recently.

Just Cracked It...

Ready for some ponified nostalgia? Well, here's a ponifed scene from "The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy" involving Spike clones...

"WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE!!!!" (Aka, click that statement or go after the break to get your nostalgia on...)

The Music Hour (with FPLOON)

Street poetry is my everyday
But yo, I gotta stop when you trot my way
If I was workin at the club you would not pay
Aiyyo, my man Phife Diggy, he got somthin to say

M*gathr*ad: *xc*ll*nt...

Hey, this is FPLOON... It seems that the program from last night's Nightly Megathread has taken over and has reworked the commenting system... So, as you talk among yourselves, let me know if you notice anything "not-of-the-norm" in the comments...

In the meantime, I'm going to try to stop it before it's too late... Let's makes this a bit interesting, so that the program doesn't get suspicious... Try to avoid commenting with the letter "E"...This megathread suggestion comes from fellow commenter Colgate...

Now, talk among yourself... I may pop in from time-to-time, so be on the lookout... *sighs* Wish me luck...

No-Frills News

Not Much time - mods all busy. Here's the news.

Colgate sent in a bunch of Youtube vids:


This comic was missed a while ago but definitely deserves mention:
Quite humorous

The guy who made the first banner for our site has submitted art to a WeLoveFine contest. Go support it if you can!

Someone sent in their fanfic: http://www.fimfiction.net/story/83579/my-limitless-lily
Not pre-read for sake of time, but seems like a bit of a tearjerker. Proceed with caution.

Also as was mentioned in the comments of the last Nightly Megathread, there seems to be a general consensus that the recent convention, Las Pegasus Unicon, didn't go too well... (check the NM comments for details) Thanks for details added by Zirconium_Pants and Jordan Olling A proposal has been Drafted by Andrew Brockert (well-known convention organizer) to make sure this doesn't happen again: many details, and some of the rumors, were compiled by some anons on /mlp/ here. If it unfortunately turns out that the organizers were con-artists, perhaps the information these anons has gathered will help the police find and arrest them. EFR posted an explanation here, and the comments here are painfully revealing. Sweetie Bot likened it to a crossover between The Hangover and Oceans Thirteen... I'd say that may be fairly accurate. LPU has their side of the story up on their website now. And here's a first-hand account of the events at the convention.
