The external media. What are they saying about MLP? Is it good? Bad? Do they get the details right? Do they judge?

I wanted to talk about this Shortpacked strip for a while. Is this happening in the pony community?

Rooted hair is the nylon brushable hair that a lot of MLP toys use. One of the big debates among toy collectors apparently is whether it's better to do that or use solid plastic hair sculpts.

Oh, that. I like the brushable hair just fine, I think it's fun to style them. But molds are fine as well...

Penny Arcade had a cameo from Ditzy Doo a few days ago.

MLTG is two great tastes that taste great together. The video was mentioned both on theTransmission blog and in Top Gear Magazine.

This got posted on EQD. For the most part, this was a very positive article.

Ooh, fun. Thanks for sharing. = )

I went to the local Dollar Tree to pick up a few things today and noted that their entire shelf of hand sanitizer was empty. I spoke with the cashier about it, and she told me that someone from one of the schools had come in earlier that morning and cleaned them out.

Anyone else seeing runs on things like hand sanitizer in your area?

 

Iced tea? Uh...I dunno how long it takes. But it's a lot longer than 4 minutes.

Most excellent. The Pony influence has officially spread into IRL mainstream media. In our home state, no less! Makes sense that it would pop up here first--Portland is generally pretty weird-friendly.

Still wish someone like Entertainment Weekly or TV Guide or someone would do a piece about the actual show. Positive press or not, I'm bothered that such an excellent show is being overshadowed by its own fans.

Pinkie cosplay in Devil's Panties. ("Devil's Panties" is a bio comic, the title comes from a band names brainstorming session in college.)

Mad just referenced MLP during their Cowboys & Aliens parody. Applejack appears even though her hat was wrong & had Rarity's cutie mark. Still, pretty funny! icon-ironhide.gif

EDIT- Now another reference, during a parody of the new Thundercats pilot, a Rainbow Dash stand-in can be seen invading Thundera as part of an army of internet memes.

Thanks for the heads up, Don_East. I'm a few timezones behind you for Cartoon Network, so I had time to catch this and upload it to my newest YouTube channel.

Here's the MLP/Cowboys & Aliens parody on MAD. There are a lot of MLP references in this one. Other than the name "Applejack," there are no canon characters in specific (copyright reasons, I'm sure) but a few might resemble somepony we know.

And here's the one for that. This one is funny, but nowhere near as much pony as the first one. There are a few instances of pony scattered throughout, but they go by really quick (and good thing too, I didn't care for how they looked in this one.)

Wow...that Thundercats one was amazing! It's the first Mad toon that was somewhere in the area of being amusing.
