Well, I still can’t help Stunthead, and I don’t think I have much to say about anything else than I hope Calpain recovers and doesn’t leave. It’s always sad when someone has to leave something fun for them behind. Hell, I hope that he can stay in contact with the fandom in some way, even if he has to stop moderating EqD.

Other than that, I’ll just post this:

Why yes, I DO like posting weird goofy pictures, why do you ask?

Screw the ‘Pony of the hour’ threads. This thread will be a more universal thread than a “Vinyl Scratch” or “Rainbow Dash” thread. This thread will be a…………THAT’S IT! A ‘Pony thread’.

Anyone think they can handle this so called ‘Pony thread’? I think I can do it guys…..I. Can. DO IT!

Something tells me I screwed up.

As for Hippieshy? Isn’t that just her default state with new clothes?

Over the last 20 pages you were within the first 3 posts 11 times (7 being the actual get, so it’s assumable the other times you were just a bit too late). Out of those, 9 times involved some form of topic forcing (some literally saying “X Thread”).

What do page gets and single pony spams mean to you?

Vinyl has too much pages already! WE NEED SOMETHING CUUUUUUUTE

Life Loser makes the best HNNNNNG material.
I also think we’ll need a new Pony General before Season 4 airs.

@Finishing General VII by next season

We have a little more than 98 pages to go. I’m sure that we can think of enough insightful, interesting things to say to camouflage all the shitposting we’ll need to finish by then.

Speaking of Vinyl Scratch, the weekly CMU pony chalking is done! This week we drew Rarity:

We tried to base the drawing mostly on her season 3 appearance. I think we captured her personality and beauty quite well.

Also, a few days ago I finally got my first custom made plushie! I ordered it quite some time ago, but it kept getting delayed for various reasons. However, I think it was worth the weight. Here she is next to my 4de Twilight plush for comparison.


She’s unbelievably soft (literally, I cannot believe her softness and have come to question the nature of reality). My jimmies have been put into cryostasis thanks to her calming plushness. I am at peace. That is all.

You would certainly be more qualified than any of us to write about that entry. Why not give a shot at editing it?

The entry is already being called a forced meme. I have said if they want help, I will give it but I don’t want to camowam so I will stay off as an editor on it.

I kinda doubt that. We started this Pony General over 5 months ago, and even with recent activity, we began Page 96 about 11 days ago. That’s more than 1 day per page. Even if we progressed at the rate of 1 page per day, we’d still be at around page 170 when Season 4 begins (the Season 4 premiere is Saturday, November 23rd.)


On another note, this image had exactly 100 upvotes (with no downvotes) on Derpibooru when I first saw it.

Of course, it’s Twilight taking a selfie with her perfect grades. So instead of upvoting it and marring the perfect “100” (in the spirit of the picture), I just favorited it instead.

Unfortunately, someone had to go and give it upvotes after that.

Yes.

And pressing the upvote button afterwards removes the upvote.

So that explains it. And yeah, you can link shit from Derpibooru. I do it all the time.

Alright guys, looks like I need a bit of help here. Radio show is almost due, but I haven’t got an interview yet. So, i’m going to need two things; Someone who can hold a 6 to 8 minute interview and someone who can tell me how I’m supposed to hold one and make it an audio file that I can edit. Sorry the post was so long, but I wanted it to be eye-catching so that more people would give me a hand.

What do I have to imagine with this 6-8 minutes? And do you just need anyone or is your aim preferred at someone with experience with the fandom.

In case of some sort of fandom experience and helping out, you have Verbs and Opspe with their survey and bronycon presentation, my research for this site, artists like Muumi (art), Fifths (music) and DP (writing). Amongst others.

The people you listed are prettymuch exactly who I was hoping for. It’ll just be a few questions relating to what they do and what they think of the show, as well as a bit of discussion if we don’t have enough to fill in the time.

Oh, cool! I’ll be sure to send you that info… right away… frantically begins making skype account

I got mine from this etsy shop, it was $100 for the full sized one and around $75 for fillies. That shop does indeed do OC orders, the only thing they don’t do is giant body alicorn types. Their previous pony commissions can be found on deviantart here.

Personally, I’m going to keep tabs on any great quality plushies I can find and buy them all and build a mountain of them and live atop the mountain like deadparrot does.

Well, I guess you might be in luck since Derpibooru has at least two Anthro pictures of that. No humanized that I know of though.

@Stunt and Jimmy

Hold up, guys.
We’ve got this.

… maybe.


@Plushies
Nice Spitfire, Sky!
I’ve got an Octavia from the same artist and she really does make them super soft and squishy!
Hug her lots!

@Lunar
If you are looking for OC plushies, most artists will do them, it all depends on your budget.
LilMoon, who Sky linked to, is definitely on the more affordable end of the spectrum for the size she works in, but it sounds like long delays are a bit of a pattern for her.
(I waited months from the time I ordered Octavia to the time I got her.)
Plus, if you are looking at 6, that’s going to run you at least $600 – $700 dollars.

If that’s over your head financially, there are plenty of other options out there, you’ll probably just need to compromise on either size or quality.
I always like suggesting BewareOfKitty for people on a budget because she makes really cute little beanie ponies for, last I checked, about $25 a pop.
For made-to-order custom work, that’s pretty darn good and her results are adorable and portable!
(Their size means that they are easily concealable, so for that reason, they are still the only ponies that I have taken out in ‘public,’ not counting cons. They’re always getting into trouble… Always…)

If you want more suggestions, I can run through my list of DA artists and see what I can find, but that’s my two cents to start with.

(Hey, I earned my title.)


Random stuff time!

Fluttershy likes trains!
(Even if the music annoys you, jump to 1:40 for a pretty awesome animation effect!)

This was just too soul-crushingly adorable to not post:

She may have picked the wrong pony, but god damn it, she’s so damn cute!

I don’t know if anyone cares, but apparently H8_Seed’s YouTube page just fell of the face of the Earth. He hasn’t really given much reason as to why besides he didn’t like the attention of being a brony celebrity. I don’t follow why he needed to shut it all down though, I mean YouTube pages don’t require any extra effort to keep up right? There are a lot of YouTubers who fall off the face of the face of the Earth without removing everything. Eh, whatever.

That most certainly feels bad, man. He will be sorely missed. At least his archive is active for the time being. Might want to grab any and all tracks while we still have the chance.

Fame got to him, I guess. Being popular does cause a lot of stress, after all. As we say in the pro wrestling business, I wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors.

Man, you know what I just realized? I’ve been too busy to even watch an episode of MLP in months…..It kinda hurts. I don’t have the same energy at work that I used to have when I used to be able to watch Pony before work (because oh no, they just HAD to move MLP to the moment when I’m supposed to be at work).

I…..I need to watch a few episodes tonight.

Since we saw Rainbow Dash win a Death Battle against Starscream, who would win a Mane 6 Battle Royale? Here’s my take – each pony would go after their breed counterpart (Rainbow Dash vs. Fluttershy, Twilight Sparkle vs. Rarity, and Applejack vs. Pinkie Pie). Rainbow Dash would win because Fluttershy is the weakest of the Mane 6 and does not fight that often. Twilight Sparkle would win because her magic is stronger and she had more experience than Rarity. Applejack would win because she is more hard working than Pinkie Pie and is skillful at a lasso. This would narrow the fight down to three ponies. Applejack’s lasso wouldn’t reach Rainbow Dash since she can fly too high while her strength wouldn’t be enough to handle Twilight Sparkle’s magic thus losing to the two ponies. The final showdown would be between Twilight Sparkle and Rainbow Dash. Since Twilight Sparkle is the leader, she knows everyone of her friend’s skills and powers, so taking out Rainbow Dash with some magic blasts would be a walk in the park. The winner is Twilight Sparkle.

@Chowz

You’re forgetting that Pinkie Pie’s speed is on par with Rainbow Dash for some unfathomable reason, so she could outmaneuver Applejack and strike quickly, knocking her off balance before she could do anything with that lasso. And Applejack’s strength will mean jack all if she can’t land a hit while being worn down herself.
