I was invited to Anime Matsuri, then ignored

Anime Matsuri invite

There’s a lot of talk about Anime Matsuri recently in light of the convention’s recent attempt to silence a blogger for speaking out against sexual harassment which has prompted calls to boycott the convention.

Newtype USA’s subscription department is staffed by MORONS!

Back in December, I signed up for Newtype USA subscriptions for Lizzard and myself. On January 9th, I discovered that only Lizzard’s had gone through. I contacted Newtype USA and Caroline Toppert told me that they only had record of Lizzard’s subscription (even though I had received confirmation e-mails for both.) She told me she […]

Turkey, Newtype, and housing: What would Tyrone Willingham do?

Had Turkey Day here at my parents’ new house. Lots of the family came over and ate whatever…turkey, smelly cheese, veggies, pie… I like pie. Actually, the chocolate cream pie wasn’t too good. Tasted kind old. Bought from a restaurant (Cole Farms in Gray) so I’m not surprised. I found Newtype #2 at a gaming/comic […]
