I’m not Dead Yet, I’m getting Published Online
So it’s been a while since I put up any My Little Pony articles. I’ve been covering all the weekly shorts from Hasbro Studios that were suppose to run up all the way to the premier of “The Friendship Games”. Then suddenly, we were three weeks short! I’ll have to put up a review of the third Equestria Girls movie later.
However, I haven’t been idle. I’ve been working on a steampunk screenplay and a Christmas novel. And when I need a break from both of those, my pony OC (Original Character), Tale Weaver, takes over. He just finished his first My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic fanfic. You can check out Chapter One of “Broken Hearts” here!
I’ll be posting a chapter a week until all four are up. Don’t worry, the story is already complete, so I won’t leave you hanging.

He’s a fan of Second Geekhood.

BronyCon PMV – Good Morning Baltimare
I’ve been to a lot of conventions. Some of them have a video during the opening ceremony, like Gallifrey One. They’ve included things in the past like a message from show runner Steve Moffatt, and even a skit by Peter Davison (the 5th Doctor) where he misses his flight to L.A., goes to the Doctor Who Experience in London, gets in the Tardis there and then appears from the Tardis onstage at the con. Videos are a lot of work, animated videos even more so. Which means that even if you are not into MLP, you still have to admit this is impressive.
BronyCon 2015 was held August 7th – 9th at the Baltimore Convention Center. It is the largest MLP convention, topping out at over 9,000 attendees. There are a lot of wonderful videos to be found from BronyCon. Here, have some lines, cosplayers and John De Lancie:

MLP Behind the Scenes: Tina Gou
Equestria Daily recently put up four short videos of celloist Tina Guo recording a track for the 100th episode of My Little Pony. Here is one of them:
MLP has a wealth of talent, from the writers to the voice actors and singers. Those are the easy ones to spot, but sometimes it’s easy to miss the talent that goes into making the music tracks, from composer Danny Ingram to musicians like Ms. Guo. If you dig a little deeper into her Facebook page or YouTube channel, however, you’ll see exactly what kind of talent this show has to offer:
At the end of the video, she plays various genres from classical to heavy metal. Heavy metal cello, you say? Take a look:
Wow! Does Vinyl Scratch know about this? Maybe BonBon isn’t the only one with a secret identity.

Countdown to Friendship Games: Short #5
A new season, a new movie…it’s a banner year for Ponydome. Here is this week’s short starring Flash Sentry!
Saturday, August 29th, Discover Family aired a preview to Friendship Games. It contained the first four shorts and about ten minutes of the movie. It was big news early in season 5, when Rainbow Dash got her first solo song in “Tanks for the Memories,” but until now, nopony seemed to know that she gets a solo in this movie as well. She even strangely ponys out without her guitar, which ties in with Sunset Shimmer trying to figure out how magic works in the EqG universe in the short, “The Science of Magic.”
On another musical note, I recently found this PMV on YouTube. It’s the perfect followup to last week’s short, “Photo Finished.” Keep in mind that this is a fan made video!
Still wish the movie was going to be in theaters. Enough! I go!

More Pony Besties, Please!
Recently, Hasbro announced the release of five sets of ponies based on best friends in entertainment history.
Personally, I need Optimus Prime and Bumble Bee, and Lavern and Shirley. Hopefully, Hasbro will release more BFF pony pairs for next year’s Friendship Day. If they do, here are my suggestions:
Kirk and Spock: “You are, and shall always be, my friend.”
Xena and Gabrielle: Have you ever noticed how similar Sunset Shimmer’s path is to Xena’s?
The Skipper and Gilligan: Probably as close to sea ponies as we’ll ever get.
Fred and Barney: Talk about “Friendship Through the Ages!”
Mr. Ed and Wilbur: Now this has possibilities. They could do Mr. Ed as a pony and Wilbur as an Equestrian guy, or they could mix it up and make Mr. Ed an Equestrian guy and Wilbur as a pony. I guess it depends on which side of the mirror you’re on. Boggles the mind, don’t it?
Have any other BFF suggestions? Leave them in the comments.
