I'm gearing up for Sakura Con
I do not enjoy attending anime conventions anymore...I think I'm either too old and fat or I just don't LOVE anime as much as the typical convention goer. Probably both.
However, I do enjoy working with the fine folks at FUNimation
and helping out at their booth. Lots of fun, great company with terrific employees, and some pretty cool perks. If you will be at Sakura Con this weekend, come by the FUNimation booth and say "HI SAILOR TWEEK!"
I had also planned to spend the afternoons and evenings of the convention on my own promoting RTX. Gus had sent me some tshirts and flyers...but I still can't find the package. Fed Ex swears it was delivered...an
d I believe them...but this package is nowhere to be found. That's my chore today: BOX HUNTING.I know that this isn't my fault
...but I can't help but feel
like the missing package is my fault and this will reflect negatively on me somehow. Silly, I know...but I really wanted to go the extra mile for RTX and now I can't.
This weekend most likely will not produce awesome "I ran my ass 8 blocks in the rain for Edward James Olmos and now he follows me on Twitter
" stories, but I hope to have some fun photos and buy some more wigs! BECAUSE I TOTALLY NEED MORE WIGS...and theatrical contact lenses.
Which reminds me: be on the look out for a post in the near future where I need to sell off some costume things that I don't wear anymore...like wigs.
Sakura Con is full of lovable weirdos that I don't get to hang out with very often. I will have a blast getting get my drink on with people dressed like ninjas, maids, furries, bronies and pegasisters, and the occasional Disney Princess. ..but, I won't lie...I'd much rather be out there on the East Coast PAXing it up with you guys.
I will be wandering around Sakura Con at some point saying outloud to no one in particular "You know what this convention is missing? Rob Paulsen's Yakko and John DiMaggio's Paul Lynde impression...
To make this journal a little more relevant to your interest:
I'm going to buy the shit out of these:
Have you seen the wonderful new items at the Rooster Teeth Store
You should be saying "Yes, Mary. We're not a week and a half behind on Rooster Teeth news like you are
BUTTONS! Great Gustavo, buttons are back!
I know I say this all the time...but it bears
repeating: BRING BACK DOC'S CHARACTER SHIRT, PLEASE.
You know what would be SUPER COOL? Take the Doc kill count shirt and print O'Malley's name and kill count on the the inside of the shirt...
Also: Barbara announced 2 new RT Community contests!
A scavenger hunt AND a song writing contest! Get over to her journal entry for details! Go forth and make music ... and find shit!
Speaking of contests: The Random Crack Comedic Red Vs Blue Pairing Contest
