Third year I’ve been to this convention, and the first at their new location of the Sacramento Convention Center. It’s a far larger location situated in downtown Sacramento, and surrounded by all the amenities of a down town area, such as hotels, quickie marts, and food…though that last one wasn’t as important this year as I’ll describe in a bit.
As has oddly become custom, though differently arriving in this case, I wound up flying in on Friday, Day 1. Original plan was to take the train, but I’m not spending thirteen fucking hours in transit when I could drive there in eight. Wound up taking Super Shuttle to the Quality Inn situated about a block away from the convention center down town, where Mayhem and co were already set up.
I actually hope to get the Sac Anime Summer 2013 report done very soon. I've been dragging ass since I really wasn't too sure how I'd like to proceed with the Masquerade video, but I'll go ahead and release it in this fashion...for now. In any event, here are the High Def, non censored, versions of the Sac Anime 2013 Summer Movies as hosted by Nyaa Torrents. These include: the Maquerade, most of the Akai Sky concert (since the Sac Anime staff would not let press in to set up early), the Steven Skyler mini concert, and the Eyeshine concert.
For those that simply want to watch the events, I invite you to head over to our Youtube Page and check them out there. I do warn you though, due to King Records (Japan) basically putting a blanket world wide blackout on any video with what they consider their property, I had to remove the audio for one of the skits. Until such time as sanity either returns or is driven by knifepoint back into law in general, this is how it shall remain on a public site like Youtube.
Enjoy, one and all!
Oh yeah, and if anyone can get me in touch with someone with the Elizabeth Stevenson memorial video, so that I may include it within the Masquerade video proper (with all credit given), I'd be most appreciative.
