Yaoi Press’s entry on not offering BL-video games..

August 22, 2008 1 comment

I just read this blog entry from Yaoi Press, and is sadden, by their decision. I understand their justification, but as a supporter for bl-material, and owner for Animunidi and Absolute Obedience. This is quite disappointing news, I always am in anticipation for a new bl-visual novel game to be brought over. Yet if piracy forces companies like Yaoi Press to turn away from bl visual novels, or how Hirameki went out of business.. then where is the hope for any bl to grow? I believe that visual novels are a great entertainment value to fans, and of maybe a seed’s hope of homosexuality become more of a norm and accepted lifestyle.

Sept changes and plans – Digital Life/New York Anime Festival

August 21, 2008 Leave a comment

Okay… news flash.. Digital Life, a convention to showcase the latest and best in consumer technology is postponed… T_T. I am still settling from my Otakon foray, and will repost my con report here as well, when I post the entire thing online.

At first on the last week of September, there was news of two events overlapping, one is Digital Life and the other NYAF. I was contemplating on how will I cover both DL and NYAF, thinking about going to each on the same day, but apparently DL lost out and there is now news of postponment of the con, so that leaves only NYAF – so this year going with Rai, and Mina.. hoping to meet other, namely Hinano, who’s post of this had me had my first reaction as o_O… and if there are any other online bloggers… I’ll be attending NYAF as press, so say hi, if you’re inclined…

Then later headed over to the Jam Concert.. which was pretty off the wall, except I couldn’t see… took over 300 pictures, will recap later on JLHLS and here, but just ranting now…. meeting up with friend tomorrow for a photo shoot.

August 7, 2008 1 comment

Made it to Baltimore in one piece, very humid conditions. Attendance this years, seems higher than last year. Pretty excited… didn’t wait in long lines at all, but wondering about tomorrow. Ahhh..

Made some new friends, feeling kinda shy – missing my friends in NYC. Need to meet up with one or two friends tomorrow. Life is nice.. the hotel is nice.. just worrying about foot traveling tomorrow.. it is going to be a long day tomorrow. I’ll be doing a recap, semi-stuffed with pictures- plastering over the web – flickr,, JLHLS…some LJ thoughts.. etc.

There I said it!!!!

But oh my… still so much to do.. Have the clothes as a suitcase ready, some autograph stuff to take… but need to drop by 42nd street today for several things.. run to HSBC ATM, purchase rechargeble batteries, Asahiya for One Piece cd or something, for one and then rush home to pack my personal book bag of electronic gizmos.

Won’t be able to review much this weekend, other than ebooks, so got that covered… need to think about where to get food… throwing in my luggage a box of cereal, so need to get milk from that supermarket… hmm..

Thoughts and more thoughts!!!!!!!!!

Need to finalize my questions for a potential interview…

Anime College years

August 4, 2008 2 comments

Ahhh.. this draft has been on my wordpress account for several months now. Just had to add coding and write some thoughts. Also need to prep for Otakon 2008 and one thing also is to try and clear my blog reader… still 1000+ posts over the mark.. so occasionally leaving comments on other people’s blogs.

This is coming to a near closure in posts for this memory walk, might do another recap several years from now.

At undergrad college, I spent four years away from my mom’s house, upstate with my first personal desktop computer. So at a college environment with high speed internet and no anime club in sight. What else was I to do with keeping my head into the anime stuff. Read more…
