AVCon 2011 (anime and video games convention in Adelaide that happened July 23-24) was awesome. 14k+ attendance was a damn good result, particularly considering Adelaide is one of the smaller capital cities in Australia. Nearly 50 people attended the History of Anime panel I did - which is a lot more than I expected, particularly since LittleKuriboh was doing a repeat of his panel at that time. Editing of the recording is finished, doing the uploads now. Presentation lated 51 minutes, so the panel will be uploaded as 4 videos (Youtube's current limit is 15 mins) and fully available in 8 hours. Look forward to it.
Heard you've been watching some retro material like Legend of the Galactic Heroes so thought you would be interested.
Yep, Attitude Era and Flamboyance Era were far better than freaking PG Era.
Another thing is that ever since Jim Ross is no longer a regular commentator, they've lacked a good headman. Lawler is decent but Lawler is the type that needs someone to roll off with, hence JR and Lawler were great. Michael Cole...ugh...
And as for anime, not liking a single thing from 2011. Heading back in time to fill my void.
Saw you say to Triple_R about how you loved the 'Cena Sucks' chants during the return of The Rock. Gotta love it when someone breaks the stranglehold Cena and Orton have on the kids and consequently the WWE.
Best anti-Cena chants ever were definitely at the Rob Van Dam vs Cena match in 2006 at One Night Stand. That crowd was the most hostile I've ever seen. They were one step away from inflicting greivous bodily harm on Cena.
lol, I like watching that kind of thing; so I'll take a look once it's uploaded.
As for ISML, lol. I stopped taking it seriously a while ago, and post in that thread solely to entertain myself and a few others since having a thread filled with just votes and random hater comments is pretty boring.
Hehe, nice work on stirring up things in the ISML thread. Geez, it's a joke this year. More like Chinese Saimoe. Nothing against China, but they're controlling the contest and anyone with a brain in their head knows it.
Ever felt like taking the plunge on watching some retro anime? Doing panels next month and the local anime convention and I'll be speaking on the History of Anime panel. Hope you check it out once it's uploaded late July. So much good stuff from decades past that should be licensed/acknowledged but isn't. Anime's roots is worth knowing about - trust me.
