Back at Equestria LA 2013, JHaller and I hosted a panel called the Power of Parody Propels You. In the panel, we talked about how to make parodies and what makes great parodies work. Haller and I liked to believe that this was a live-action Round Stable article, so it would only be logical to have it featured up here on the front page. Many thanks go to Brony Clubhouse for recording and posting the panel. The panel is about an hour long, so allow appropriate time to be able to enjoy it. ■
BronyCon has a new guest of honor to announce, and it’s show writer Mitch “M.A.” Larson. Larson, writer of such episodes as “Sonic Rainboom,” “Luna Eclipsed,” and “Magical Mystery Cure” will mark his first appearance at BronyCon this summer, joining fellow guests like Nicole Oliver and Andy Price.
