Anime Expo Idol 2010 Torrent Now Up

This may be my last release for this year; I'm uncertain if I'll release the other two in their uncompleted form, but I'll debate the merits of that with myself later. Still, why taint what is truly a most awesome release with such bad news? So, may I present this year's historic Anime Expo Idol competition. Historic in that what I often said could not possibly come to pass, did, in fact, come to pass: A guy won both the voice acting portion AND the singing portion. While last year we had the first ever guy to win the contest with the voice acting competition in what was a stand up performance of a part of Rurouni Kenshin (which earned him an actual standing ovation from the audience), this year we had a gentleman get up and obliterate everyone by singing the living Hell out of Nokia plaza. I could tell the guy who usually picks girls was about to do it again this year, but I think he could feel his likely doom approaching from that man's newly acquired fangirls if he dared do so. Even so, it was damn well earned, but you'll see shortly.

Thanks again to Nyaa Torrents for being our tracker.

Having received a request on Momoi's Facebook page, either from her or her mod, I've gone ahead and made her concert from Fanime 2009 available again.

If you missed it the first time around, be sure to snag it now. Also, it comes with the band Makenai's great opening of it, so fans of Makenai should appreciate this as well. Have fun!

Time For An Evil Overlord, Grade School Edition

I'm not entirely certain when I'll be done with my videos; this past year was something of a screw-up and a half on all fronts. It was bound to happen eventually. Ah well, in any event, I'd like to direct your attention to a G rated training simulator on how to be an evil overlord, otherwise known as Little King Story. It has everything you could possibly want, death and blood by the gallons, a harem of princesses, treacherous ministers, womanizing, an army of minions who'll do your bidding, womanizing (really, that needs to be said twice), assassinating kings, killing their subjects, and taking their land and women (I'm sensing a pattern here...)

So, back from Anime Expo and finally got some information on one of the most screwed up technical problems I've ever seen in video editing software of any sort. Simple little problems like...oh...I dunno...ADDING A WATERMARK?! Anyway, after going through several solutions which plain flat out just don't work (not working on linux...gee, that sounds familiar) I find myself back at Avidemux using a plugin designed to work with wine, avisynth. A powerful scripting tool to be sure, but being a scripting tool with a hacked in plugin solution, getting the right verbage down for certain plugins is...harrowing to say the least.

Fanime 2010 Report Up

Could it be? Am I sick? Have I ceased procrastination? Hell if I know, but in any event, the Fanime 2010 Report is up for viewing.

Fanime 2010 Report

Oh Fanime, why do you happen so close to ACEN to torment me so?

Fanime is supposed to be the chill out convention, the one where you just hang loose, go do stuff, and typically have a restful and fun time. This was not the case this year, and I think it started when Mayhem suggested we go to the Black and White Ball. I readily agreed, not exactly enjoying the sausage feast of the adult only dance of last year. This, of course, would necessitate a certain amount of preparation both before (in the form of getting my suit together) and during the convention (in the form of dance lessons). Sounds like a fun way to break up the con a bit.

ACEN 2010 Writetup Is Now Up

Wow, I'm getting faster. Maybe I can get the Fanime report out sometime soon too? In any event, here's the Anime Central 2010 Writeup that I've been planning to get done for awhile now.

As it was in the past two years, I've got nothing but good things to say about the convention. If you're ever looking for a good time, this is the place to go (though maybe they should think about adding a day), I guarantee, so I hope I did the experience justice. But don't just take my word for it, click on that link up there and check out my full thoughts on it which includes some news items for those looking for the videos from this year's convention.

Anime Central 2010 Report

It started when I was being driven to the airport in some rent-a-shuttle you booked for a flight at early hours that should be outlawed or at least protested on a weekly basis, while feeling the effects of a cold just starting that I hoped in vain to whatever god I worshiped isn't a cold just starting make that dry scratchy feeling in the back of my throat. Bus driver was blessedly silent as I alternated between staying awake, silent religious supplication, and waiting for the drugs I took before I boarded to kick in. There's also this vague nagging suspicion that in my haste to get everything together, coupled with the pain I'm presently feeling, that I forgot something maddeningly important. Quick mental checks are not possible; haven't had anyone hit my turbo button yet by mainlining me with a Monster energy drink or even some of the finest brewed Columbian lighter fluid. What items I have high pri on my list, that which makes what I do possible at conventions; I do manage to confirm are in my possession before hitting San Diego International.

p>As I sit here listening to Kung Fu Fighting by Fun Thomas and Carl Douglas, all the while wondering what the Hell I'm thinking going to conventions back to back like I do with ACEN and Fanime, I've managed to complete the processing and uploading of the pics from Anime Central 2010, which you can find here on TFA Cosplay.
