I can’t decide which 2000’s boy band is my favorite.

It’s a toss up for me between The Meaty Cheesy Boys, and Dujour.

Both are satisfying in their own way, don’t get me wrong.

How Disney Stereotypes Hurt Men

mtv braless does a great job taking a look at the gender roles men have in Disney movies, and how it might affect both the boys who grow up watching Disney movies, as well as on society.

Anime Matsuri 2015

P1140155Anime Matsuri was pretty enjoyable, but I’m on the fence if I want to go again. I helped out at the Louisianime artist alley table this year, and while that was enjoyable enough, the convention has just grown too large for my personal taste. Then again, I had similar feelings when I worked in the same dealer’s room space at Comicpalooza.

DSC00431This is a really weird complaint to have, and the only fix is to go down the path of self destruction for the convention, so I think I will just have to look at other conventions to volunteer to go to.

Despite the lack of cheap food in both the surrounding area (food trucks aren’t cheap), and inside the George R. Brown, I did enjoy myself well enough. The sad thing is that this seems like a photographer’s convenention, as they had a giant exhibition room set up just for photographers and cosplayers to take some excellent pictures, so I dislike disliking it. Also, right outside  of The George R. Brown Convention Center is Discovery Green, a beautiful park that allowed for some amazing photoshoots.

P1140144Perhaps with the appropriate networking beforehand, and not working an artist alley booth, I can grow to enjoy large conventions in The George R. Brown, but honestly, I didn’t like the smaller first year Anime Matsuri at this venue too much, nor Oni-Con when they used it.

Maybe I just like going to hotels more? Anime Matsuri 2016 is going to be even larger, and use up the entire George R. Brown, which they are currently doing construction on as they expand it. Awesome.

Below are a few pictures that I snapped at Anime Matsuri, and more can be found at my flickr page here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/netsenshi/sets/72157649666914023/P1140100P1140156P1140102DSC00430

Because I am apparently 8 years old

marsjupitermy Sailor Mars and Sailor Jupiter figures came in the mail last week! This is awesome, as I only have Sailor Venus to get now to finish off the inner senshi, and then I can get the rest a little later maybe. Because I am apparently super immature though, I took some… questionable photos of them, partially due to the fact that I have a friend who is into shipping Jupiter and Mercury, and partially because… once again, I am apparently super immature.

jupitermercury1 So apparently, it is difficult to take pictures of girls in super short skirts. Most of the pictures showed panty on Mercury, and I only found out after the fact. Oh well. Here’s hoping that I eventually get to a real photoshoot with these figures once I get Venus.

Misfile – The Movie?

misfilemovieChris Hazelton, creator of the devine TG racing webcomic, Misfile, is attempting to create a movie based on the first part of his comic. At first, it sounds weird, but Chris’ pitch makes more sense once you learn that he actually has a degree in filmmaking, and has worked on some major Hollywood movies.

Make sure to check out and donate to his Kickstarter! Also, if you have no idea what Misfile is about, make sure to check out his comic from the beginning here: http://www.misfile.com/?date=2004-02-22

Hippocampus

hippocampusNot quite the ‘Mermicorn’ I mentioned before, the Hippocampus is acreature that is half horse, half dolphin. The Hippocampus is shared by both Greek, and Phoenician myth. Quite an interesting mermaid-like creature, huh?

Okay, so why is this seahorse so important? My Little Pony. More importantly, their second Equestria Girl’s movie, Rainbow Rocks, sort of features Hippocampus villains. I had no idea that this was what they were, until I saw a Bronies react to the movie… so awesome? Anyways, I felt like it was worth sharing on this beautiful Mer-monday!
