What is up, my awesome bronies? It's Mray again, and welcome to the second month of 2012! This year’s speeding right along, huh? Next thing you know, it’ll be my birthday! (September 5th, peasants. Get your gift ideas ready.) 

Onto the news!

This week, we had a whopping zero new members. Jeez guys, don’t trip over yourselves when rushing to join. 

As a side note, one of our most active users, Stranger, was made a group moderator this week. I guarantee that nothing will be different at all now.

Group Events

Here’s the schedule for all the happenings going on this week.

Brony Round Up

This week’s Round Up will be on Xbox 360, and will be in Halo Reach. There will be quotes from The Room. The leader of the Round Up will be Stranger, so be sure to send him a friend request on Xbox Live if you haven’t done so already. This will take place on Friday at 8:00 PM EST. 

Good Movie Night

The good movie for this week will (supposedly) be Boondock Saints, and it will be in Synchtube (password: spitfire). This will take place on Friday at 11:30 PM EST.



Shortly after Good Movie Night is over, Superking will be doing a live stream of him drawing. It's a commission from me, and I can guarantee it's going to be all kinds of awesome.

Brony Round Up #2

Yes, there are two Round Ups this week! The second one will be on Saturday at 7:00 PM EST, and the game will be Team Fortress 2 (Steam). Papercamm is the leader. 

Bad Movie Night

The bad movie for this week has not been chosen yet, but it will take place on Saturday at 11:00 PM EST. The leader is Potatoz. Prepare for anything, as last week's movie was The Room. WARNING: Your IQ WILL drop.


Group Projects, Art, and Blogs

This week, Mray was on TOGNick’s podcast, The 4th Floor. You can check it out here, on his blog! There’s talk of ponies, movies, and time travel. What more could you ask for?

Although not technically a "blog" at the moment, Mray wrote a (very) short fanfic in the blogs thread. He's trying to get the idea of writing a story down, so please leave your critiques!

And now Mray can finally stop talking in third person.
