NYCC One Year Party Recap…

October 9, 2009 Leave a comment

Yesterday night, NYCC was hosting a one year party for next year’s NYCC at Bowlmar Lanes down near Union Square. I RSVP, and it was an venue to be at if you wanted to hear the official announcement for the first guests of honor next year. There was some free bowling, and an open bar.

There was a huge crowd there, and on the screens were screen caps of this year’s show. There was also a raffle. Everyone was with friends, so it seemed odd to be a lone person there, still the night was young.

So I mingled and moved around. Got white wine spilled on me.. and that was that. Had soda to drink for the rest of the night.

Yes the guest of honors, unless you haven’t check out the NYCC blog or the Twitters, that I saw NYCC twitter did, as well as I did myself. John Romita SR and JR of Spiderman notoriety.

I ended not getting home until near midnight.

NYCC is an event I find interesting because there are paranormal publishers there, that have books other than comic. I went to this event with the intention of doing some publicity work for JLHLS. Did some advertising.

Makes an self-affirmation as to why I prefer to be a press, than just a fan. If I was a fan, there doesn’t seem to be any point, other than gush on it, but at least if I was press – then there’s a reason for why I do somethings.

Comics unfortunately I don’t read much of – basics on the fact of the art and the length of the series. Archie is the only comic I was a slight fan of.

Still I got to meet hang out with some friends, meet an awesome librarian trainingto be, and bunped into a random friend on the streets of Union Square.

[NYCC] Post-con Snapshot

February 8, 2009 3 comments


Okay, okay losing my voice.. but I made it.. and I am still standing.. I will write an offical con report.. but just wanted to do this quick snapshot of the swag I got, and a brief overview of what I did and maybe of what I learned…so that should be interesting.


  • Picked up my Professional Badge


  • Picked up my Press Badge
  • Got sidetracked by Sakurai Sho fan craze, waited for three hours on foot. Was not lucky to see him. Learned my lesson and for the rest of the convention avoided the big superstar events like mad – ie… Seth Green, Joss Whedon, Joshua Jackson
  • Attended two panels – News Flash Teen Girls Read Manga, New York City Through its Authors
  • Camera was knocked onto ground, by another person…
  • Surprised, but saw Bill Evans, Eyewitness’s NYC meteorologist.
  • Mindset of a professional


  • Attended three panels – Del Rey Manga, Yen Press, Disney Presents Up
  • Camera was knocked into and fell… broke, so some technical difficulties with camera.
  • Hung out in the dealers room some more.
  • Watched the only movie preview in Pixar’s Up.
  • Read Fujoshi Rumi Vol 3… *_*
  • Mindset of a fan
  • Ate at a restaurant with a friend


  • Went to B&H and replaced the entire camera before going to the con.
  • Attended three panels-VIZ Media, Kick-Ass Female Authors and Killer Heroines, What’s New At Penguin and DK
  • Mindset of a Press

Objects obtained

  • About 20+ books for review, will send to editor.
  • Three plushies of Tonberry, Moogle, Cactuar
  • Four telephone charms of Tonberry, Cactuar, Moogle, Chocobo
  • Full Metal Panic The Second Raid – DVD set.
  • Cute pencil sharpener
  • Blue Bentobox
  • Phoenix Wright Casebook Manga
  • Blue Totoro Hooded Sweatshirt
  • Princess Waltz Video Game
  • Portrait of Pirates Roronoa Zoro Figure – This was such a big purchase.. that my friends said I scared the dealers with my excitement.

Have to show what I purchased of Zoro, which was an unexpected purchase. Still on the look out for adding Robin, Brooks, and some other as well to my small One Piece figure Collection.


With my friend,there will also be a more official con report at JLHLS, but this is just my own thoughts for the moment. Pretty happy, and very exhausted from my recent excursion to NYCC 2009, but man are my wallets empty for the moment.

[NYCC] Planning out my schedule for NYCC 2009

February 4, 2009 Leave a comment

Since I am a New York Native, I don’t really have to worry about hotel stay and all that.. but still need to plan out my schedule. Figrue I’ll do it here.. so I am armed with my handy dandy new digital camera… and a notebook and I am off and running.

This is still a unfinished thing I must look through and edit on… so it is still a wip that can change up to the very last second. There are also dealer’s room time that I did not put in.. so much schedule some time for that as well.

[NYCC 2009] Okay information overload… and it’s not even here yet!

January 19, 2009 1 comment



Okay e-mail bombardment of press releases check…. latest press release is Heros star: Milo Ventimiglia going to be at CC itself..

Email reminders to update my sessions check…

Friend im-ing/emailing double check check…..

Twittering like mad…. triple check..


Okay… I am going to NYCC as press for JLHLS, but now I realized, from NYCC last year with TMR, what a publicity venue this would be for both American, and Japanese stars… this is making my heart go all aflutter… have to stop and focus… ack… >_<

I don’t care about the American/Western aspect of the con… but just news of Sakurai Sho going to be at NYCC is making my Celebrity watch radar go mad.
