Happy out of context Throw Back Thursday!

Thursday is an amazing day to just throwback to some more nostalgic times, shows, thoughts, etc. I decided to just share some images I’ve previously shared on my blog. Some are quite meaningful, while others less so but I still find them cool.

  1. The Doctor Who one is special, because it was Dorky, taken in my birth state of MS, and it recently helped me meet someone who I thought was… pretty nifty.
  2. The little comic under it, was from a Blog Post about GameStop, and I just think it’s a cool quick sketch of me?
  3. I really like this picture I took of Dugg Finn at Louisianime.
  4. Sailormoon meets steam punk photo was quite cool from an Oni-Con YEARS ago.
  5. Member Holiday in Aculpoco from Pokemon? I used to have banned episodes from it on VHS. Good times.
  6. I like I Dream of Jeannie, and her sister was evil… but damn if that green outfit wasn’t cute.
  7. Galaxy Express 999 was amazing, and it reminds me of how coll/weird it was to see it when I was younger..
  8.  I have worked on two pony fanarts of friends, and the other one was my first OC I believe. The first one was of my friend Julie’s Transformers Animated OC alongside an OC I made of her husband David named Dashing Husband. The second one was something I did for/of an ex. The third one(?) was just a cool character that I named Doodles. While I was living with my dad, I made some Gaming with Sean videos for the first time, and well…
  9. Ice Ocean wasn’t a real NES game, but it’s one of my favorites from a bootlegged bunch of nes games in a controller?
  10. A-kon 16 was my first A-kon of two, and yeah… not awesome, but one of the best Pose Offs ever? I did them under the banner of NetSenshi, and none of the people behind the table really hang out these days, to my knowledge? Take pictures kids!

Throwback Thursday: Free Hugs

The story behind this photo is that at Ushi-con 2005, there was an area where people had signs saying outlandish things, one of the most extreme was ‘grope me I’m Mexican.’ I ran to my car, grab some lei’s from a cosplay I never finished, and made a sign giving them away for kisses. I my friend dared me to see if women would do it just for Pocky, but that happened as well. My favorite one was when a girl kissed me right in front of what I assume was her boyfriend. Awesome times.

Here is a pic from O-chibi con… which was a tiny convention a long time ago, with some friends that I will honestly never get in a room together again for many different reasons. It’s sad, because one of them was a best friend of mine from high school, on the bottom right, and well… yeah.

Louisianime 2017

P1160119

Like usual, full disclaimer: I worked as a volunteer at Louisianime, I’m good friends with 1/2 of the owners of said convention, and since I was given a badge, hotel room, and gas money, I can not fairly review this convention. 

Now that that is out of the way, let’s discuss Louisianime 2017!

… … … It was fun and a lot of the stuff went off rather smoothly? Like I said, I worked there and I can’t tell you even if it was fun, as I was working.

They raffled off a Nintendo Switch, The table top gaming room had Pathfinder, Cards Against Humanity, and several board and card games that my roommate provided for the convention. The Library Bards were our musical guest, and the crowd really seemed to like them, so go check them out.

Below is the cosplay contest:

Here are some of the pictures that I took of the convention

But it’s my birthday!

P1150979Once again, I survived another full year since I’ve been born! Suck it fate! Seeing as it’s my birthday,  and a useless Sunday, I figured that I might as well post random stuff today… because I can.

I mean… it’s my BIRTHDAY… right?

See?! There was no reason to post this very old image of The Pose Off from back in the old days. Do you know why I did it though? Because I could.

Daryl Hannah and Tom HanksWhen we get older, I think it is common to use the anniversary of our birth’s to remember days gone by. First times, last times, and more importantly… special times.

I just got back from a trip to Rhode Island to visit an online friend. this was a first time for me and that was special too. Today at lunch I ate a pickle in a hamburger that my mother couldn’t finish. That’s hopefully the last time I’ve been given the pickle.

PEDESTALKITTY

See? I’m just randomly plucking out photos from past articles with no context of why I posted them in the first place. Below are a few more of my favorites for no particular reason.

We all have a lot of regrets in life. One of the biggest ones is typically not doing something. I feel like we owe it to ourselves to fill the short time that we have with as many wild and crazy things/experiences as possible. Go hug an online friend, cosplay for the first time, embrace some weird interest that you are passionate about.

We were born and we will die. Make the best of your time everyone. Be good to everyone, while we are here. See you on Mer-Monday tomorrow! Here’s a sneak peak!

Up way too late Saturday Morning anime!

I have been watching a lot of Dragon Ball Super, and now that new episodes will be coming to Crunchy Roll, I could watch it there legally now. Awesome! I recently bought an awesome figure from Dragon Ball a few months back and got it on Thursday. Here’s an unboxing of it down below!

A few days ago, Tokyo Comic-Con canceled it’s ban on crossdressing. Awesome, but now they will be issuing different colored badges depending on what your ‘true’ gender. Hah hah hah, and the controversy gets… worse? *sigh*

In August it was revealed that Viz is going to re-release the OVA’s and 2 movies of Ranma 1/2 in 2017, so yeah… I’ve already seen these, but hey… that’s pretty cool. Will they release the OVA from Rumeric Theater that happened 7 or more years ago though? Probably not, so watch the one for Ranma, Urusei Yatsura, InuYasha, and surprisingly not Maison Ikoku on… I want to say Youtube? Here is a video they made about Rumeric Theater that is awesome.

Besides watching some Sailor Moon S via Crunchy Roll, I haven’t been watching a lot of anime, hence the lack of Saturday Morning Anime on my blog. Sorry. What’s some good anime that I should watch?

I’m officially boycotting Tokyo Comic-Con

You heard it hear first! NetSenshi Productions will never cover any content from Tokyo Comic-Con. Weird, when I never have, I know, but the reason is because they now have a ban on men dressing as women at their convention.

trick_or_treat_by_netsenshi-d31gtimCharacters who crossdress is a rampant trope in Japanese media, if not society. While crossplay is huge among women in Japan, and isn’t being banned at this show, men dressing up as women has. Let’s set aside gender nonconformity, people who are trans, etc. for a moment, and remind ourselves of some Japanese content that makes this ban really weird.

71kiwwkwqrs-_sl1500_Where does Bridget from Guilty Gear come into play? A male character dressed in women’s clothing but in all reality is still a male character? Not Japan enough? Okay.

pink-ranger-girls-of-power-rangers-22611440-500-375Power Rangers… err… Super Sentai… err… Tokusatsu in general, uses a lot of male stunt doubles for their shows. If you have one of them as a guest, and they are in their ranger uniforms, then guess what? You hypocritically have a guest advertising the very same lifestyle that you are directly objecting, all because you are afraid of there being ‘too many’ guys dressed as women. Awesome.

5c2d54990a8233506450b0555f41eeb9What about fans of JRock, or Japanese Rock music to those who are unfamiliar with the term. All of a sudden, fans can’t dress up as their favorite crossdresser from Dir En Grey and strut their stuff? Everyone knows that Shinya is a man, but now NUH UH, not happening. Guess they will have to use some extreme vetting on both actors and musicians for the foreseeable future. Well, as long as there is nothing else that promotes a lifestyle that the people running the convention apparently hates… oh wait… this is Japan.

fisheye-hands-cropAnime and Manga. I know that my references are really dated here. My main point though, hopefully, wont be lost.

So males cannot dress up as male characters who dress up as women, which really isn’t even crossplay but just normal cosplay. Awesome.

29228719f3510ce44f67569f85d9264dAnthropologists even have problems distinguishing between Asian skeletons. Under all of the wigs, makeup, masks, and frills… how are they really going to be able to enforce this? Westerners, wanting to ironically see Stan Lee, a WWII veteran in Japan, sure. That’s easier… but unless they are willing to role the dice and pull out people who might legitimately be women who look a little man-ish and thus make international headlines, I can’t really see this as enforceable on a large scale.

Louisianimer-Monday?

P1150754I saw this cutie on the arm of another cutie while attending Louisianime 2016 in beautiful Baton Rouge, LA earlier last month. I wonder, how would I go about gathering people with awesome tattoos together so I could take pictures of their awesome ink? Huh… I will think about this and see if I can figure something out.

mertartThere was one more mermaid sighting during that convention weekend, and that was on a box of Kellogg’s Pop. Tarts. BTW: if you google search Mertart, you are getting porn. Search for the #pastryofthesea unless you are just trying to get porn. Apparently Metart is a porn sight, as is Mertart and gah… I just wanted popped pasty’s and not popped… umm… never mind.
