The Second Annual Tom Awards

Bigger!1 Louder!2 Pony-er!3 Bronystate survived another whole year, and now we celebrate with the Second Annual Tom Awards!

If you missed the show, you can catch it again anytime on Youtube:

Our staff chose nominees for each of the five categories by paring down lists of the episodes and movies shown since the last award show, agreed on a final five, and you the viewers voted during the week of April 1st. We try to be original, and so did not include an award for Best Pony this year, nor an award for the Best Meme, seeing as how GAK was really the only one. Still, the best, and worst!, of 2012 and 2013 are on display!


The winner of Worst Season 3 Episode, presented by SuperBrony64, was Spike at Your Service! The nominees, and their number of viewer votes, were:

  • Spike at Your Service – 65

  • The Crystal Empire – 13

  1. Actually shorter, but so was season three 

  2. No about the same volume really 

  3. Okay now this is getting silly 

Daylight Saving Time Starts Soon!

Hey folks it’s that time of year again. No, not the season finale, we passed that. It’s that time of year when we all mess up our clocks because old dead people told us to!

On Sunday March 10, next week, US timezones will spring forward one hour at 2:00am local time; I’ve added a timer to our countdown aligned to Eastern Time. At that time, our site timing will change to Eastern Daylight Time. Movie nights will continue to start at their usual time, which will be earlier for our EU viewers until they move forward as well.

On Sunday March 31, EU timezones will spring forward one hour at 1:00am local time; I’ve added a timer for this as well aligned to UTC. However, Daylight Saving comes around so rarely I’m not sure if our timers will continue to be accurate after the US switches. If there’s an issue, I’ll be sure to correct it next week.

Of course, you’ll all have your own reminders about Daylight Saving Time, this is just a friendly reminder that our weekly schedule is tuned to US Eastern Time, and so will move forward an hour relative to now until the whole world switches over. Then we can all get back to mourning the loss of our hour of sleep. Or our hour of Bronystate, whichever is more applicable.

Cheers!
