Pony Pimpin'

The Unsinkable Joie Brown, whom I may have mentioned before as the official artist for Unknown Ponies: the Failure is Awesome RPG, is setting up a table at the Alternative Press Expo in San Francisco this weekend (October 13-14).

"Why are you bringing this up?", I hear you ask. The answer is simple:

Do I have your attention now?  Excellent.

Ms. Unsinkable can be found atthe  AAU Children's Book Club table, #134.  She is selling the set of Seven Pony Pins -- that's the Mane Six plus Derpy, thank you very much -- for a mere $10.

But that's not all! She is also selling other buttons:



Cosplaying Corgis!

And whatever else she manages to create in time for APE.  $10 gets you any 7 pins you desire (not just the pony pins). If you want more than 7 pins, I'm sure something can be worked out.

If you can't make it to APE, that's also fine: Miss Joie de Vivre also has a PayPal account. Send your payment to brown.joie@gmail.com and she will mail them to you.  Again, any 7 pins for $10.

Derpy photobomb!

Want t-shirts?  Well, there's a bit of a problem with that, as MLP tees might draw down the Unblinking Eye of Hasbro Legal Counsel. However, would you like a nice Ponythulhu: Friendship is Madness tee?  Buy one of these and you can offend not one, but TWO fandoms!

Also drawn by Joie, these shirts are available here for $20  (sort "Lowest to highest" to get  to the tees).  And if you really like tee shirts, this link gives you a 25% off discount on any order of $75 or more!

In conclusion, I leave you with two amusing and amazingly-animated pony videos. 

The first, Dorkis a sophisticated yet minimalist... something. I'm not quite sure what it is, frankly. It seems like it would work best as a video ad for the show itself:  

Without their manes, tails, eyes, etc. to identify them, each of the mane six are built on the same stock model. So how are they so vividly, unmistakbly unique in all our minds?

The second, Ponies Royale, is by the same animator and is a full-length video in the style of James Bond opening sequences... except with ponies.  It's the mash-up that had to happen!

In conclusion:  Ponies are awesome and you should buy stuff. 

That is all.

  1. I never thought you're addicted to ponies, and some of them are from pokemon. They're so cute.
