Well, slow news week is slow, but I guess there just isn’t that much going on in the world of ponies, minus of course the news EqD gets, but even then its been minor. There’s a new Eurobeat and 8 Bit tracks that will be coming here later in the evening (if you didn’t catch them on EqD), but right now I’m looking for some help.
I mentioned this in one of the previous post, I’d like to collect all the pony videos that I can on this site for our media section, and I ask you guys for some help. Basically I’m looking for links to all videos that are not featured here in the media section, and yes before Captain Obvious Pony comes in and tells me to go lift them from EqD, I do plan on doing that at some point, but as said my time grows limited in these warm months, so it would work out easier if my mailbox was filled. You don’t have to be the author/creator, and hell if someone wants to go over to EqD, click the video label and go through and make a list, that would be awesome. This is a summer project, so of course there is no rush.
Hopefully the community has calmed down about the Lauren Faust thing, yes that was a biggie in the news world, and I know in certain corners it became a quick shitstorm, but at least in my neck of the woods (IrcHighway) it was pretty calm. To quote someone, Faust is the creator of the world, but she didn’t hand make all the episodes of Season 1, she basically did what she is doing with Season 2, so there should be very little worry about what Season 2 will be, it still has her touch. If there is a Season 3, then I’d start to worry. But again as Faust said, she is done, but so is pre-production of the show.
So all should be well and hopefully we have ponies again by October. There’s no official date of course, just a guess, which I think is based on the schedule of the first season. Its known that Season 2 production will wrap up sometime at the end of December / start of January, and some did assume that would mean season 2 would start then. BUT Season 1 didn’t wrap up until that time last year, thus I predict October.
That’s all for now, submissions can be mailed to Submit@DerpyHooves.com, feel free to use that form I have under the submit button, but I think some people are turned off by it, either way works fine.
PS: No word yet on Mentos/TrollHD of Episode 26, his google doc has yet to change.
