Pasta Pursuit Canceled

If you're reading this, then a) you're not at the 3rd Gourmet Race, and b) I'm not there.

My ride to the gathering backed out after founding out that he had to pick someone up from the airport who was arriving. Since it was a international flight, odds are she would probably want to go home instead of tagging along to the gathering. Thus, I'm not at the gathering but instead at home.

I'm all good.

Gourmet Race 3

So I've only read about the first two Gourmet Races that have occured. The first one involved sushi, and the 2nd one involved steak.

Now there's a third, and it involves pasta.

Oh, and I'll be there competing.

Details to come...

Nico Nico Douga Medly Remix

So out of the blue I had the urge to remix both the original audio version with the one from the Masquerade. I had one version up using both rips from YouTube, but now that I aquired the original audio track of the Medly, Ver. 2 is up. Compared to Ver. 1, the track is much cleaner, with no sync issues.

I hope to get some good feedback before making a video version of it.

Fanime '09

So we're about 16 days away until Fanime changes the main page to reflect the 2009 edition of FanimeCon. I do hope that pre-reg is available when the new page is up since I really wanted to get pre-reg for '09 out of the way. I also expect to change the banner to reflect the 2009 edition of FanimeCon.

Until then...

Fanime Connections

So I just watched Kung Fu Panda, which came out today. Great movie for both kids and adults, and odds are I'll be the #1 movie this weekend.

But as I was fascinated by the action sequences, one thing popped up into my head:

Ric Meyers - yes, that Ric Meyers, the kung-fu guru and longtime FanimeCon guest - worked on that movie. So obviously it showed in the detail of those sequences. Great job Ric, and keep up the good work!

Photoshoot 1 of 2 Posted

The first one that I took has come in. This is the one that I took with IamTetuso of the Forums on Saturday afternoon. I had him for a photoshoot last year, and this year we tripled the output of photos - 81 high-quality photos!

You've already seen four of them featured on the front photo of the blog - that was me posing with an airsoft shotgun modeled after the Mossberg 590 in the stairwell. Although some of the shots were whitewashed due to flash, they came out very nice. Here are some of my favorite shots:

Tetuso, you come through again! Love you work!

I'm still waiting on Darkain's photoshoot, and I'm waiting to see how the night affected the shoot...

Sac-Anime Gathering

So last Sunday, there was a Sac-Anime Gathering at the front of the convention center. I was wondering when I would see the photos...until now. J Ryoga of Coscom (short for, a Sac-Anime regular, posted these and I'll share them here: was nice to see all us reppin' Sacramento in the Bay Area. I won't be seeing you all in June - I have to work in the morning - but definately come August, when Sac-Anime hits.
