New blog!

This is my new blog- the old one had a crappy and frustrating interface. I’ll use wordpress now for my bloggin’ needs and hopefully the ease of posting will make me want to blog more. I have plenty of photos from Japan and other events that I’d love to share.

Sukoshicon Huntsville (repost from old blog November 17, 2010)

On the 13th I woke up super early and made my way over to Huntsville Alabama. Why would I do something like that? To participate in Sukoshicon!
The Con was in the Marriott right next to a NASA space center.

Here is my display. My table has a bit more stuff on it than last time.

Sukoshicon Huntsville. My table!

Sukoshicon Mobile (repost from old blog October 17, 2010)

Sukoshicon Mobile was my first anime convention where I had a table in the artist ally.  It was a 12-hour con in the heart of Mobile Alabama. Here is my table.

Louisianime 2010 Baton Rouge (repost from old blog September 17, 2010)

What is the home of Alligators, Zydeco, and Otaku? Louisiana!!! Last weekend was Louisianime, an anime convention in Louisiana (Well duh). This year’s Louisianime (2nd year) was held in the Baton Rouge Crown Plaza on September 10-12. This was my first convention in Louisiana, and there was lots of Creole otaku spirit.

Who Dat?! Master Roshi! Geaux Saints

Ghost Buster, New Orleans Creole 9  This is an awesome Ghostbuster Pack

The con was spacious enough for everybody but still had that ‘small-con feeling.’ Also there were lots of cosplayers costume-playing about.

Lots of cosplayers

Art tables and such

Steam-Punk Mad-Hatter  His cane is a spout for tea!

My friend and I hosted the ‘Pose-off’, a game with no winners! How the game is played is that my friend and I make an ass of ourselves by striking a pose, any kind of pose, and then two people come up and try to do the pose.

Kung-fu Knuckles hat!

KamehameHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ash Ketchum!

Guitar Hero! Star Power!  

Vocaloid will do what a Vocaloid dose.  ROTFL! this is win.

Can I have some energy for my spirit bomb?

This was my first time hosting a panel, and it went over very well. I’d like to thank all the people who played and watched!

The special guests, Scott McNeil and Amelie Belcher (there were more, I just didn’t get to their panels) were awesome! Scott is a character as always, and Amelie was off-the-wall hyper and informative.

Scott McNeil  Amelie Belcher like crappy romance novels

So overall this con was lots of fun with a unique spirit and had a high-level of vigor (9000+ possibly?). I would defiantly attend next year.

…Okay, enough of this sappy everybody-is-a-winner talk (well anybody involved with the pose-off will be losers). Lets end with something I call

“THE MANY FACES OF SCOTT McNEIL!!!”


Wait, is that guy selling Canadian Beer?  Tastes like chicken.

“Wait, is that guy selling Canadian Beer?” – “Tastes like chicken.”

Ahhhh… Boobies!  F*ck you! F*ck you! You're cool.

“Ahhhh… Boobies!” – “F*ck you! F*ck you! You’re cool.”

Oh my he said "doodie."

“Oh my he said ‘doodie’.”

Resturant review of Coco Ichibanya (repost from old blog December 07, 2009)

I love Curry, maybe more than Dave Lister, so when I want some immediate spicy gratification, I trot down to the closest CoCo Ichibanya.

Coco Ichibanya, a Japanese curry house chain restaurant

Coco Ichibanya is a Japanese fast food curry house that is quick, easy, and delicious. They are located all around Japan. There are two located in Yokosuka city alone. Like any chain restaurant, they all have a similar feel.Coco Ichibanya has more than just curry rice; also available is nan bread, curry pan, salad, and dessert.

Counter seats are for the sad lonely guys, great for me!

But it’s not all cookie cutter, they do have local specials and seasonal menus. Coco Ichibanya is very foreigner friendly.  The foreigner menu has seven languages.

I can read that!

Ok, this is how it works,-

1: Pick your curry base: Beef, Pork, Hash

2: Pick your topping: There is a wide variety of toppings, from cheese to fried quall eggs, order as many as you want

3: Select the amount of rice: From 200 grams to 600

4: And my favorite, Spice level: From mild to 10

Not that hot...

The face let's you know how your bum will feel later.

This particular trip was my first time playing with level 10. I ordered a half plate of shrimp curry.

Half-plate of ebi curry. level 10

The rice is your typical Japanese sticky rice, good and hearty. The curry is flavorful and tasty, an instant classic.

Yum

That level ten was hot, but it was no match to a curry junky like me, well played, curry, well played.

Done!

If you want to take the experience home with you, you can get take out, delivery, or the Coco Ichibanya ready to make ingredients.

Too bad I don't cook...

Overall, Cocos is not the best, but it is still good, not to mention quick and easy. Keep spicy!

Punny Stuff (repost from old blog November 29, 2009)

 As you can probably tell from reading my comics and blog, is that I have a lame sense of humor. I am a dork, I just sit around on a computer all day and say “I’m a dork! Internetz!” Well for once, it actually paid off. I entered DJ Bog Trotter’s worst (best) pun contest. And of course I won with my patent

What does the Basketball Playa’ do when he was sad?

…He was BALLIN’!


Oh gawd, how horrible. Why would I pollute the internetz with horrible humor?

Pun contest grammar nazis

That’s why; I won a free print of DJ Bog Trotters work. It’s a nice little trophy that proves I AM THE PUNNIEST! To continue the fun, comment on this blog post with your worst (best) pun and win a free print of your choice!
