My Little Dystopia: Oppression is Magic

An interesting interpretation. I'm not sure I subscribe to all the points the gentleman makes, but it's certainly food for thought. Via Equestria Daily.

Greetings, Panel Folks!

I just wanted to extend a warm welcome to everyone who's found their way here via the BroNYCon mythology panel video. Obviously, there's not much posted yet; Quilly and I are both busy people in our non-pony-related lives, so we've not yet quite got off the ground. That said, we do have several pieces still in the works, so if there's genuine interest, we'll definitely pick up the pace. We also welcome outside submissions and suggestions, so please get in touch if you have something. You can reach us via email (contact at bronyscholars dot com) or on Twitter (@bronyscholars).

Dusty Old Books (or, the Mythology Panel That Wasn't at BroNYCon)

This presentation was initially intended to be delivered at the January 2012 BroNYCon, but was delayed due to technical issues. As promised, I've now put it online instead. To preserve the idea of a live rendition, I did this in one take and only one recording, so please forgive the screw-ups, of which there are likely many. And while we're on the subject, apologies for the terrible jokes, too.

BroNYCon Mythology Panel Update

As I finally have sufficient time to tweak and record it, the BroNYCon Mythology Panel, which was meant to take place (as the name would imply) at BroNYCon but which was delayed due to technical issues, will be posted this Friday, January 27th at 2:00pm EST. I know we're not exactly the most punctual here, but this date is absolutely firm. Hopefully it'll be worth the wait. Thanks for your patience, all.

The Genetics of the Pony

Though Quilly and I are still mired in our respective mucks trying to get our first articles sorted out while juggling our more immediate day-to-day responsibilities, we're still keeping a close eye out for any interesting bits of pseudo-academic (or even legitimately academic) pony-related research floating around. Over on The Brony Farm, newly minted author @TwilightOtaku has written about a fascinating piece that's surfaced on DeviantArt entitled "The Genetics of the Pony" (written by a fellow named theaceofspadez). You can find Twi's excellent writeup here, and the piece itself here.

Press Delays

Some bad news, folks: Quilly and I have discussed the matter, and we've concluded that we both need more time to ensure that our first articles are as high-quality as possible. We're both committed to making this site something special, and we want to start out on the best possible foot – and while pushing back our first deadline isn't the best way to do that, rushing to publish something substandard would be a far worse way to kick things off. We apologize to those who've been waiting eagerly (I know there's at least one of you, anyway), and we appreciate your patience and understanding.

Be excellent to each other.
