Signed, Sealed, Delivered

Way back in May, when Lauren Faust stepped down from her work on My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, I set out to collect letters of thanks from bronies around the Internet in a post on this blog and find a way to deliver them to Lauren as a way of showing her how much her work means to us.  I called the project Letters to Lauren, and scores of bronies responded, sending over 140 letters total to be included in the collection.

After a frenzied day of adding letters to the post, I set out to bring them to Lauren’s attention.  I tried a few different methods, none of which panned out, and I began to wonder if I’d started something I wasn’t really prepared to finish.  Then Tek stepped in.  My friend Tekaramity, one of the blogponies at Equestria Daily, told me cryptically a short while ago that he just might have some way of delivering all of the letters I’d collected.  It turns out that he was in the process of conducting an interview with Lauren herself (read it here, it’s amazing), and he told her personally about Letters to Lauren.  I have it on his good authority that Lauren Faust is right now in the process of reading through each one of the letters that you sent me.

Yes, you read that right.  Lauren Faust is reading through Letters to Lauren.

As you may be able to tell, I am absolutely floored.  My sincerest thanks to Tekaramity for proving once again that he is the Element of Generosity and using his incredible opportunity to speak with Lauren to make this dream come true for me and the bronies who sent in their letters, and an equally sincere thanks to all of you bronies who sent in your letters and made this project come alive.  It was an enormous privilege to help coordinate this effort, and I’m so glad that it was such a success.

And, of course, a huge thanks to Lauren Faust.  You’re a great force for good in this world, Lauren, and we all appreciate what you do.

Your faithful mail pony,

Tim N.

Questions Part Two

So last week I posted asking all of you lovely readers to give me a few of your favorite questions so that I could use them in an upcoming blog.  Two or three of you responded with some excellent questions, but I’d really love to hear from more of you, so tonight I am shamelessly creating a second questions request post.  I’m looking for all kinds of questions, especially ones that are fun and creative, so feel free to ask whatever you’d like.  I’ve always enjoyed asking you guys questions and reading your answers in the past, so I figured it would be fun to try it the other way around, and the questions I’ve gotten so far have been great.  I can’t wait to read your questions and have fun answering them, so don’t be bashful – let me know what’s on your mind!  Leave your questions in the comments below, and have a great night.

Also, because I feel bad for the lack of actual content, have some laughter courtesy of Julian Smith:

“With Child” – One of Julian’s funniest skits

“Racist Coffee” – One of Julian’s most endearingly quirky music videos

New Video (Sort Of)

I’m going to be at home and away from my school’s speedy Internets this weekend, so I’m bumping the Saturday pony post up to today.  That’s a good thing, though, because two big, pony-related things are happening today.  First of all, today is the day before MLP Profile Picture Month officially begins.  During the month of April, all Friendship is Magic fans on Facebook are changing our profile pics to ponies.  Why?  Because we can.  If you want, you can join in, too!  Here are a few fun pictures that you can use if you’d like (Protip: Bucket Dash is always a good choice):

Also, I’m working on a new video project right now that is decidedly pony-related.  After seeing all of the amazing videos in the “Confound These Remixes!” post a while back, I considered making one of my own.  Then, the other day, I was watching Julian Smith’s “I’m Reading a Book”, and I couldn’t help but think it would be amazing to use that audio to create a video of everyone’s favorite bookworm, Twilight Sparkle, rapping/singing “Don’t you ever interrupt me while I’m reading a book!”  Confound these ponies, they drive me to video editing!  I’m not finished with it yet, but I posted a 20 second preview to YouTube today, so feel free to check that out here and let me know what you think in the comments below.  Have a great day, and I’ll be reporting in tomorrow from my lovely home in Michigan.  Until then, God bless!
