Just released today!
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.

At the grand old age of 70, former companion Frazer Hines has just made his pop video debut!
Hines plays a Renfield-like barman in a vampire-themed music video for Linzi Gold’s newly released track Killing Kiss .
A beautifully done music video done back in 2011 and featured in our Five & Dime Fangirls Who Crack Video Track project at Gallifrey One in 2012, Last Friday Night can still bring up all those feels of the best of the 11th Doctor, Matt Smith era. River Song haters beware – she’s in here a bit, but that’s because she ruled!
Shipping characters, or supporting the real or imagined romantic relationship of certain characters in a fandom, has been around since Classic Trek. However, the term “shipping” has only been commonly used in more recent years, and nowhere have I seen it more prevalent than in the My Little Pony universe. Fluttershy and Big Mac (my favorite), Fluttershy and Discord (Time Siren’s favorite), Pinkie Pie and Cheese Sandwich, Lyra Heartstrings and Bon Bon, Dr. Whooves and Derpy…the list goes on.
You see it in art work, fanfic, and fan videos. One of the most popular ships of background ponies has been Octavia and Vinyl Scratch/DJ Pon-3. They are constantly put together as roommates or something more. This clip from the upcoming 100th episode finally make this fan-created ship canon (well, the roommate part).
There is a lot of speculation if Vinyl will finally speak in this episode, and if you’ve think you’ve heard her speak, check again: we’ve only seen her speak in fan videos. If I’m not mistaken, we’ve never heard Octavia speak either. Despite that, Vinyl has been pulled up from the background several times during the show, has her own music video, and played an important part in the Equestia Girls Rainbow Rocks movie.
Check out the comments on the Equestria Daily page…my favorite is “There aren’t enough FedEx Trucks in the world to ship this.”
And finally, a big #secondgeekhood shout out to composer Danny Ingram for combining classic cello and Techno so awesomely!
