Happy Throwback Thursday from the air!

15yearoldmeI should be in the air heading back to Texas from Colorado! So hey, Let’s throw back a little!

Remember the past and how amazing it was?!  Here is a picture that proves it!

See?!?!? Now let’s not remember about the cosplayer who is a neo nazi white suprema….

NO! THIS CHICK IS THE DEVIL!!!!! Or at least an evil Oni. Seriously, it still bums me out that this cosplayer is a white supremacist. Here is some other things to make me feel better from the past:

Anyways, here’s hoping for a brighter tomorrow.

Ariel is a racist?

When this was discovered, she tried to make light of the incident until it was discovered that there was, in fact, video of her with her husband chanting “Jews will not replace us”. For more information, as well as the video, please check out this article from Bleedingcool.com: https://www.bleedingcool.com/2017/08/18/supergirl-cosplayer-went-charlottesville-guess-whose-side/

jasmineThis is a woman who once cosplayed as Princess Jasmine from Aladdin, Lum from the anime Urusei Yatsura, and the gay Japanese character Sailor Neptune from Sailor Moon.  Seriously… what the hell happened to her? Was this the way she has always felt, and these cosplays were just ‘ironic?’ Was it when Alisa Farrington met her husband Johnathan Nortis?

Who knows. I just… *sigh*

This sucks.

 

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.

Oh My God! The Half Price Books sent me back in time!

BSB2000.pngI went around time town today looking for some discounted Wonder Woman stuff… but honestly, it was hard to find much of anything Wonder Woman related. I went to my local comic store hoping to find some buy 1 get 1 graphic novels, and nothing. Looked for some regular ones, still nothing. In desperation, I went to Half Priced Books… and what I found was terrifying.

Apparently, I was trapped in the early 2000’s, as I was starring directly at a Back Street Boys ‘Into The Millennium Tour!

Panicking, I looked around to get my barrings, andIMG_0353.JPG then this! Pokemon but more importantly Sailor Moon S and Super S VHS Tapes? Why God! Why would you make me relive one of the worst eras of humanity! Despite surviving Y2K, We were still disillusioned from the lack of flying cars we were promised!

VHSsmFearing for the time space continuum, I listened for The Tardis, the roar of a Delorean, or even the archaic ringing of a pay phone.

Nothing.

I flipped over the VHS Sailor Moon tapes, knowing full well that if I even found a VCR to watch these ancient tomes on, the monstrous machine could devour my childhood, if not my soul.

$2.00? For Anime? I take a sigh in disbelief. I remember back to my high school days paying $40 for less than 5 episodes of a show on DVD. Everything might be okay.

Then, I remember the creepy old man who used to run The Pawn Shop that I used to buy old Ranma 1/2 tapes for cheap. I know right then that I had to get out of there.

Wait a second though: Sailor Pluto’s calm and knowing look was all I needed to see. I stood up, turned around, and slowly walked away… just in case something immortal was following me.

As the door closed, I realized that it was NOT the year 2000. I looked back, half expecting for there not to even be a store there.

To my disbelief, the store was still there, and past the register there were relics from an even further time I took one more glimpse into this time anomaly, and I see something from even further into the past… Records.

What’s The Main Event? A movie from 1979 where Barbara Streisand manages a reluctant boxer? Nifty I think, until I stumble upon a record that was some sort of… podcast?

IMG_0349Apparently, there were horrible motivational ones with religious undertones such as Evangelist Jay Snell’s Alternative to Divorce. I knew right then that making this second quantum leap was a terrible decision.

I tried to run towards the door, but was disoriented. My body jerked an aisle or two over, where I saw this!

IMG_0356[1]A Book? Something from either further back? How far was I going to be thrown back this Thursday? This book though… it looked familiar. Piers Anthony’s Yon Ill Wind, one of the last Xanth novels that I could actually read? I’m almost back! I then see what I originally set out to find: Wonder Woman!

Nestled into a cranny between Last Year’s smash hit Deadpool, and 1970’s 80’s, 90’s, 00’s and 10’s hit space opera Star Wars.

Puzzles, clocks, and coffee mugs: If I had a use for even one of those things… maybe I would have given into my capitalistic tendencies right then and there.

Sadly, not one comic book though. This was, however, enough to remind me that Wonder Woman was coming out tonight. A movie, based on a book, based on a weird man’s obsession with the truth.

I meandered away from this building, caring not about the dinosaurs, mercenaries, or time lords that crossed my path. I had a movie to go see, damn it. One about a woman who might finally do what Supergirl, Vampirella, Elektra, and even Catwoman could not do; be wonderful!
