I was losing sleep over the New York Times’ careless factual error on their article about college students with Aspergers who are navigating the perils of an intimate relationship. How dare they mix up two My Little Ponies? Not only do they have totally different personalities, but Twilight Sparkle and Fluttershy look nothing alike. Fluttershy is yellow with a pink mane and Twilight Sparkle is a lavender unicorn with a pink and purple mane. The Times needs to get their act together or I am no longer going to be able to trust them as a journalistic institution. Thank God they caught this one. [Coke Talk]

Lauren Conrad Gets Punky Streaks

Lauren Conrad has never really been my hair idol. Okay fine, I totally have tried to replicate that braid thingy she does—but other that than, I’ve always found her long, blonde locks a little safe. However, last week on her website TheBeautyDepartment.com, Lauren posted a photo of a woman with multi-colored streaks and asked readers whether she should go for it, too. They voted yes. Awesomely, Lauren did it and is now rocking pink, purple, blue, and green streaks on her tips. Personally, I love the new look. I call it Nuevo My Little Pony. [MTV] Keep reading »

Bill Clinton’s My Little Pony Knowledge Is Put To The Test

When I was a kid, I begged my parents for months to get me a “Mothers The Pony.” They’d go to toy store after toy store, and no one would have any idea what they were talking about because I’d gotten the name wrong—I, of course, meant that I wanted a My Little Pony. Apparently, Bill Clinton knows more about the pastel ponies than I did. Over the weekend, Peter Sagal interviewed Bill on NPR. After asking some fun questions like, “What is more fun—being president or former president?” and “Did Hilary have to give you any lessons in standing to the side and gazing adoringly?,” Peter got to the segment of his show called “Wait Wait … Don’t Tell Me,” where he asks people questions about a topic they really shouldn’t know all that much about. The category he decided to give Bill: My Little Pony. Keep reading »

Watch Ryan Gosling Sing The “My Little Pony” Theme Song


So, I used to work for Rolling Stone. Peter Travers, the handsome gentleman with the mustache in the video above, is the film critic for the magazine. He is also a lovely person and I swear I am not ass-kissing. Peter interviewed Ryan Gosling about “Blue Valentine” for ABCNews.com and got him to sing the “My Little Pony” theme song. I am pretty sure this means that Peter Travers could convince Ryan Gosling to do just about anything, including go on a date and/or have sexual relations with me. How about it Peter? Let’s see what you’re made of. [ABC News] Keep reading »

A Lady Gaga My Little Pony

I was a big collector of My Little Pony circa 1985. And so I am loving this Lady Gaga pony. Unforch, you can’t pick it up at your local toy store—it’s made by artist Mari Kasurinen who customizes the dolls. Genius. [We Heart It] Keep reading »

“My Little Pony: The Musical” Is, Predictably, An Extremely Creepy Show

This is a kids show?!?! Reason #612, then, not to make babies: the vacant eyeballs of “My Little Pony: The Musical” will never enter your home. Unless you’re a freak. Keep reading »

My Little Pony Gets A Celeb Makeover

We were unnerved by Strawberry Shortcake‘s updated look, and when we first saw an article about My Little Pony, we feared for the worst. What could they do to already unrealistic plastic ponies? Thankfully, it seems that our favorite horses are not getting a makeover, but that celebs are designing limited edition ponies. LeAnn Rimes, Deborah (Debbie) Gibson, graffiti artist/designer Claw Money, Japanese manga artist Junko Mizuno, and Spanish illustrator Catalina Estrada have all decorated 18-inch tall versions of the plastic horses, and they will be unveiled at a gallery event in New York City in September, when they’ll be auctioned. Rest easy, kids, this relic of childhood is safe…for now. [CBS News] Keep reading »
