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.

Mayhem's Fanime 2010 Pics Are Up

Doug Nelson, also known as Mayhem, has posted his Fanime pics on TFA Cosplay. This was also a very good year for picture taking as he was allowed back stage of the Masquerade to take some composed shots of the cosplayers with a quality you don't often get to see. You'll find those pics in the first item which is a sub album for the Masquerade photos.

As always, if you see your pic and you want a larger and/or raw version of it, send me a message and I'll make it available. Enjoy!

Anime Expo 2009 Masquerade Torrent

Having finally managed to resurrect the Platinum Dragon as an undead Lich (J/K man, heheheh) I once again turn my attention to the final torrent of this season's convention videos, that being the Anime Expo 2009 Masquerade. It was entertaining, but I must admit, nothing stood out in my mind this year, other than the half time show. Either way, it was a fun time.

Anime Expo 2008

Anime Expo 2007, despite all the bands, cool guests that attended, and other goings on, can only be called one thing: an unmitigated disaster of galactic proportions. There is no escaping this, there is no denying this, there is no justifying this. Complete and utter; the destruction was phenomenal. It couldn’t have been worse had it been planned. That being said, when the new site was announced, which was the L.A. Convention center, it received the same lukewarm response that the announcement of the Disney Land Convention Center did back in ’99. In essence the, the culmination of a comedy of errors that was only funny to sick fucks like myself and possibly Megatron.

Anime Expo Masquerade 2008 version 2

There was a slight sync problem in the original release of the Masquerade around the middle of the file which forced me to go back and recreate it. Around this time, Pinnacle in every version that I used decided to start malfunctioning. Basically the transition fades I was trying to place in the file would either just plain flat out not work, pixelate, or turn green when they were supposed to fade out and in.

Fanime Report 2008

Fanime 2008 was, overall, a pretty enjoyable and oddly restfull experience. I’d go so far as to say even low key. It doesn’t share the same tireless energy as ACEN, the frenzied pace of Anime Expo, or the overwhelming (even disorientating) abundance of Comic Con, but it has its share of things to do; all of which are fun. However, Fanime always has this tone of being extremely laid back, or as Gensao put it, “It’s a three day con spread over four days.” This is true, but it’s not necessarily a bad thing. One doesn’t NEED to be going from place to place at mach speeds of over 9000 all the goddamn time. Sometimes it’s best to sit around and chill with a few thousand people and meander around from place to place in no particular rush. Only thing that would have made it better is if they had a bar right outside of the dealer’s hall and registration or served beer at the Maid Café. Hey, that’s an idea: a Maid wet bar. No, not wet nurse, wet bar! Sheesh, bunch of pervs out there, I swear. Wait, I’m the only one writing here. FUCK!
