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. Although my interaction with the organizers or Anime Matsuri has not been nearly as dreadful as those reported by others in he last few years, […]

What kind of scam are you running here?

I don’t want to name names, but there’s a guy who runs a small collector/flea market-style convention who has been known to say some rather unkind things about other cons in his area. Well, apparently his house got robbed. He set up a GoFundMe where he attempts to explain what happened. On the page, he […]

Viva La Manatee – Lizzu, Love Forever

Lizz & PatrickD with Takumi Yamazaki

This morning, one of my best friends of nearly 20 years died.  Fuck cancer. Elizabeth Bramlett Donnell, “Lizz” to most people, is one of the most kind, understanding, considerate, giving, creative, and fun people I’ve ever known.  I honestly can’t imagine how my life would have turned out had it not been for her. One […]

The Week in Review

I’ve had a really good week this week: Bakuretsu Con was fun and relaxing. Toured Ben & Jerry’s on Sunday with Jody. Free samples! Got my (BIG) federal tax return. Got buffalo wings for free on Monday for trying EasyDine. Ate those for lunch on Monday and dinner on Monday and Tuesday. Tuesday’s eye exam […]

Pre-Bakuretsu Con Thoughts

I’m actually getting excited about Bakuretsu Con more than I thought I would. Although it will be nowhere as big as Anime Boston was, I think that’s reassuring. I’ll be able to just hang out and relax. Of course, I still have a lot to do before I go and not much time to do […]

Bakuretsu Con – now in handy pocket size!

Bakuretsu Con 2003

Okay, I know I’ve mentioned that I’ve been asked to be a guest at Bakuretsu Con before, but I was browsing around their site earlier today (trying to figure out when I should get there) and decided to check out the site for the hotel. They had a nice big hotel last year (as seen in […]

Record this…

I still intend to write about Katsucon, but I’ve been busy trying to catch up on stuff. (I finally caught up on Digimon Frontier tonight.) …but I just had to poke my nose in here to say that I bought a TiVo. It should be shipped to the office next Wednesday or so. I used […]

Foxes, Pain, and Dizziness: Why I Shouldn’t Leave the House

I spent most of Saturday plowing through the entire season of Digimon Tamers looking for sound clips that would be appropriate for our performance at Katsucon. I think I’ve got everything I need. I’d better…since I recorded about 40 minutes of sound bytes to make a 2 minute skit. I’m going to edit them together tonight […]
