Picks of the Week (DVD/Blu-ray)

The FanimeCon 2012 Cosfest Post of Doom! (including pictures!)

Yes folks, it’s true: I’ve actually begun going through my FanimeCon pics! (See, I’m really trying to overcome this whole inertia thing…)

Unfortunately going through them is going to take a while. I vowed to try and be more judicious in the use of the shutter button, but failed miserably – I ended up with […]

FanimeCon 2012 AMV Contest Finalists and Winners (Updated)

OK, it appears as though the AMVs that were shown at this year’s FanimeCon have started hitting the org, so I figure now’s as good a time as any to post about it…

Overall there were some amazing videos this year, and aside from the usual technical glitches (c’mon people, just burn a frakkin’ DVD […]

FanimeCon 2011 Day 2 Report

Editor’s note: Unfortunately, I was not able to complete my daily reports while at-con due to a very nasty hard drive crash on my laptop. The good news is that no data was lost. The bad news is that this has delayed my reports until I could come home and fix things. I’ll post the […]

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.)

Before we go any further, I’d like […]

Heads up! FanimeCon is this coming weekend!

Well, Memorial Day weekend will soon be upon us, and you know what that means… it’s FanimeCon time once again!! Yes, that’s right, FanimeCon will once again be returning to the San Jose Convention Center for four days of fun-filled anime goodness, this coming weekend, Friday-Monday, May 27-30. This is a terrific convention, and very […]

Episode #0012 – Convention Survival Guide

Welcome to a very ghetto episode of Otaku no Podcast. I say “ghetto” because I am doing NO editing whatsoever in this episode. That’s because it’s past 4 AM on the morning I’m supposed to be leaving for FanimeCon. Actually I was supposed to leave last night but wasn’t able to get my act together […]

Heading up to FanimeCon… (and some Important Announcements!)

Apologies for the radio silence, but between work (crazy busy with the added fun of rush deadlines, joy!), the Great Move, and FanimeCon, I’ve been a pretty busy boy. But, deities willing, I’ll be on my way to San Jose (do you know the way? ha!) tomorrow evening, and will be snaking my way through […]

It’s officially official: Come see my panel @ FanimeCon!

Well, those of you who have been particularly observant may have caught me making vague references to this on Twitter or Facebook, or on some of my past video podcasts. And if you were paying attention to last week’s audio episode, you almost certainly heard me announce this. Well, now it’s officially official: I will […]
