Damn, where has the time gone?

Final Anime Expo 2013 Pics Up

I appear to have hit a bug in gallery 3. Until it can be figured out, I'll have to live with the current state of affairs. This means that the current Anime Expo 2013 sub gallery has been moved to another Anime Expo gallery, and this is where I shall place the pics for Anime Expo for the foreseeable future, or until the problem is corrected. With that in mind, head on over to the new Anime Expo 2013-20xx gallery where you'll find the pics for 2013. Among them you'll see pics from our newest member, KamuiX707, our old friend, Mayhem, and several new events added.

I have added the pics for the Burlesque show, but until I can figure out some sort of age verification system on that gallery, I'll keep them unavailable for the present time.

As is usual, if you're one of the cosplayers and want a larger/unedited JPG and/or RAW version of your cosplay, let me know, and I'll make the available. Have fun!

First Of The Anime Expo 2013 Pics Up

Well, I've had mine up for awhile, I'll grant, and I was going to wait to make the formal announcement until I managed to get them all up, but this is taking a great deal of time. As such, I'll just update as I get them done. With this in mind, you can click to the gallery by using the links up top, or just head over here for both mine and Gensao's Anime Expo 2013 pics.

Bring some popcorn, there's a massive amount here. As always, if you're a cosplayer, and you see pics of your cosplay you want in unedited and/or raw format, drop me a line and I'll make them available.

And so, as I wade through Youtube's copyright hell on the Masquerade video, I will make it and its brothers available to you unedited in HD as a torrent. To get said torrent, you can either find it hosted on Nyaa Torrents or click on the Attachments field down below this post after clicking on "Read More" which should bring it up.

To one and all, I hope you enjoy the videos we all shot of this year's AX, and hopefully many more to come.

So, I hear a few of you have been missing some movies. Well, your wait is over. In this batch we have the entirety of the Anime Expo 2013 movies that we shot this year. These include:

Battle of the Bands
Myth: Legends of Burlesque and Magic (18+)
The Masquerade - Youtube Edit
Last Comic Standing
The Alodia Press Panel
The Danny Choo Press Panel

Really, there's so much good stuff to say about these events, that it's going to have to wait for the report when I get that written. For those of you waiting for the high quality torrents, I ask that you be patient. There were quite a number of movies this year, and uploading them all to the torrent box is taking awhile. When they get up there, I'll be sure to share them out. In any event, we get to see how long we stay up this time before we're flagged by some asshole rights holders for infringement, heh. Enjoy, one and all!

Anime Expo 2012 Movie Roundup

So, you like movies?! You like movies from conventions?! Yeah, we got those. And if Youtube would quit flagging them for every violation known to man only to have them slowly released, we'd upload them to Youtube faster. Until then though, we have our old friend, bittorrent. And what movies are these? Why, the movies from Anime Expo 2012, the link hosted by Nyaa Torrents...or you could click on the Attchments field of this post and get it there! What movies do we have? Oh, just the Masquerade (of course), the Lounge 21 Traci Hines and Midnight Shinigami concerts, the first formal (as in put on by Anime Expo rather than someone else, not all tuxedoish...though that would not have been out of place) Anime Expo Fashion Show, and the Yuki Kajiura Press Panel.

So what are you waiting for? We only seed for a couple weeks! Get them while you can!

Anime Expo 2012 Report Up

What's this? I have the report up this early? Again? Am I becoming reliable? Next thing you'll probably be wondering is where the movies are, right? Well...they're actually done, but I need to upload them and such, heh. Still, the report. It's there, and what can I say about the convention? F'n weird is what I can say about it. Perhaps it's a good idea we basically drank the whole time, and I do mean that, we were drinking the whole damn time. I'm reminded of shore leave in the Navy. Come to think of it, in terms of just how much I drank this convention...yeah, that was on par with a typical shore leave without the nightly finale of getting totally hammered.

So what are you waiting for? Check it out and see all the weirdness. If you were there, you can probably sympathize with some of what I noted in that report, I expect. Enjoy!

Anime Expo 2012 Report

Huh? What? Oh, right. Time for a report. You'll have to excuse the mess…yeah okay, the beer and various other alcoholic drinks scattered about, but I was at least rather mellow this whole convention. Even when they were doing what AX does best and not speaking to each other. At all. I kinda find it amusing that one has to stay a little bit 'happy' just to get through this convention, and that this year, being AX's 21st birthday, they tried to keep us 'happy' with various places to get alcohol, but I'm getting ahead of myself.

Swear to all that is evil and unholy, if I have to do this again any time soon, I'm going to fry this mudball of a planet...

Oh, hi all! If you've been to the gallery any time in the past day, you'll note that I've been upgrading the damn thing with new technology, or in this case, Gallery 3. This was required because, as many have been screaming at me, the Gallery 2 based website was malfunctioning badly. This was due to the upgrade to version 5.x of PHP on my webhost. Theoretically, the version of Gallery 2 I was running was supposed to be compatible, but we were all seeing the extremely slow response times, 500 errors, and broken thumbnails...assuming the thumbnails decided to load at all.

This has now been corrected. You'll note that the site works slightly differently. You navigate with the arrows in the top right corner. Gone is the lightbox, though I hope to bring it back in the future. I've increased the amount of pics and rows per page considerably. If you want to see the full sized pic you'll have to click on the pic again after opening it in its own page. These are still resized and edited pics, so in the future, I'll see about the feasibility of uploading full sized pics. As time goes on, other features, such as some Facebook integration, will be added along with a complete rearrangement of the albums to make them a little more organized.

But what am I doing talking about all this? You're here to see Anime Expo 2012 pictures, are you not? Well, here they are. All the pics are here: Mayhem's, Gensao's, and mine along with some events that required their own albums. If you see a pic of yours and want a larger and/or unedited version, just tell me and I'll make it available. Enjoy!
