FanimeCon 2011 Day 1 Report

Day 1 of FanimeCon has drawn to a close. Unfortunately this day was spent mostly getting things set up logistically speaking – laying in supplies, picking up badges, etc. Our actual at-con time consisted mostly of watching the excellent Fanime Music Video (AMV) contest. (More on that later.)

Want to go to Japan? Delta’s got a fare for you!

Psst – want to travel to Japan, but don’t have a lot of money? Well, if you act quickly, you can take advantage of a nice error on the part of Delta and fly to Japan’s Haneda International Airport for around $500! The poster of the article got quoted $589 for a round trip JFK […]
