future projectsAlright, I just want to start off by thanking all of y'all for the awesome and overwhelmingly positive reception of the latest RDP episode. This episode in particular was a labor of love, and one I've been looking forward to making from the very moment I read the fic a little under a year ago.
We have several projects planned for the future.
First, is a short cartoon called 'Investement Losses' about Aurora getting separated from her mother in a supermarket. Trust me the title will make sense when you watch the video. I'm really looking forward to making that one - Aurora is always fun to draw.
Oh course we have more Allen Hours planned (one which I will have to do some art for) and more episodes of the Mentally Advanced Series. Greg is working on Episode 13 now. He started a few weeks ago, but he had to take a break to help finish up 'My Little Dashie' and currently because he's moving to a new place of residence. He'll resume work on that soon enough - probably after the lines for 'I

And thus, season 3 comes to a close with an adorkable new purple princess, an entire season's worth of amazing new songs, and an entire lifetime's worth of memes. I loved the finale so much, my only wish is that there was MORE of it. It felt like so much goodness was left on the cutting room floor to make space for a single episode. Twenty minutes is clearly not enough to contain so much pony. That said, I welcome our new purple princess and look forward to seeing what kind of trouble she gets into in the upcoming TWENTY SIX EPISODE Season 4!
And while all sources point to the next season being a ways off, even that's not so bad. The fandom and the swirling chaos of feelings around this show has been boiling hot since Season 3 was announced as only 13 episodes. Drama, worry and discussion and debate have been in high gear. At this point, I truly believe it will do everyone good to settle

Who likes posters? Well, everyone, duh! Who likes pony posters? Everyone again! Who likes free pony posters? Stop asking stupid questions, that answer should be obvious!
Last night I decided to head back to Walmart and pick up Twilight Sparkle and her awesome car…and with it a few more posters! In the spirit of friendship and stuff, I’m passing my obsessive completionist need for a fleet of pony vehicles onto you!
I have one set of four posters including the much-coveted Equestria map that I am going to give away!
In order to win one of these suitable-for-framing works of art, you have two options. I will be giving away two posters in an art contest, and two in a raffle. The art contest, I fear, is blatanty self serving. I want pictures, pictures of my pony! To enter the art contest, draw a picture of my pony doing something- worshipping Trixie, drinking beer, bare-knuck
Copyright crap...So ya, in case y'all haven't heard yet, Hasbro is cracking down on abridged videos. Both The Mentally Advanced Series and Friendship is Witchcraft have come under fire. FiW is attempting to move to blip but they were denied an account: http://spiderjewel.tumblr.com/post/41246681741/help-friendship-is-witchcraft-get-onto-blipCopyright crap...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Today, our already created blip account was taken down too. So we can't use blip to host the mentally advanced series on our site atm. I'd ask, if you are willing, please take the time to help us out by submitting arequest form (http://support.blip.tv/anonymous_requests/new), telling them something akin to "give dawnsomewhere back their account and allow them to post".
Under url you can put our old account page: blip.tv/dawnsomewhere/
and for username you put our name: dawnsomewhere
We'll see if this works. If not, we'll just have to find some other way. Rainbow Dash Presents is fine btw - it's just the Mentally Advanced Series.
Also, while you're at it you might a
Blip is a no-goAlright, Greg heard back from blip. Their response is on our website: http://www.dawnsomewhere.com/2013/01/24/the-blip-verdict/Blip is a no-go2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Essentially, they said they wont be giving our account back. For those who submitted requests on our behalf, thank y'all for your support, but complaints don't change these policies unfortunately. While our stuff legally falls under 'fair use' laws, Blip has their own interests to look after and they don't have the time to verify everything. Essentially we're guilty until proven innocent, and the burden of proof is on us, the accused, not the accuser. That's just the internet landscape we live in nowadays.
That said, we will certainly find another method of hosting the mentally advanced series on our site; Y'all need not worry. If you find yourself going through withdrawals however and need to watch an episode of the mentally advanced series that is blocked you can download any/all of the episodes from the link posted on our forum here: http://www.dawnsomewher
RedirectsYou guys are killing our server! There's too many of you! Haha it's both annoying and wonderful at the same time!Redirects2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Greg just finished uploading redirects to the mentally advnaced series on YouTube and now our site is getting bogged down with all the new veiwers. Last time Greg checked our bandwidth use had increased 1,500%
So ya, that's awesome!
The site should stop being so sluggish soon. It'll autimatically adjust the bandwidth eventually, that the initial influx will calm down allowing for the site to work better. Greg and I are considering switching the site to a new server and buying more bandwidth perhaps this week, but we'll see tho.
You probably won't be able to do much with our site so slow at the moment, but you can attempt to watch the eisodes here: http://www.dawnsomewhere.com/mentally-advanced-series/ - might as well just get on there and bog down our servers some more
Thanks guys for all your support! This copyright hurdle is over for now!
It's always dawn somewh
