Hey nerds! Just wanted show my face and let you all know that I’m still alive 🙂 Here are the new songs for this weeks Must Hear Music- a sick remix of Misty Mountains by Dorincourt and the most adorable EDM song I’ve ever heard, straight from Kill The Noise. Comment and let us know what you think!
Okay, first of all Sugoicon was AMAZING! I loved seeing all of my friends and getting to know new ones! Can’t wait to see you all at Ohayocon 2013 XD
As Aary mentioned before, we went up a day early and that was by far the most exciting part of my weekend =) Our friend DJ z3r0 introduced us to Greg Ayres (amazing voice actor and DJ, click here for a list of his works), and the four of us, two kick ass DJ’s and two wonderful kandi kids, spent the entire night talking music, kandi, and other nerdisms. Needless to say, these nerdgirls were in heaven! By the end of the night, I had tons of new music, a great new friend, and a really REALLY exciting opportunity. Since I haven’t received any conformation yet, I won’t say too much, but I PROMISE to let all of our wonderful readers know when I do, and believe me, its exciting! Ahh! I’m getting all hyped up just thinking about it! =D
Hokay. So. Friday basically consisted of me running around an giving TONS of hugs! I didn’t get my badge until about 10 Friday night, so I stayed mostly in the room and the common con areas. And one point, my friend Kong and I decided we wanted to cuddle, about 5 minutes into the cuddling I informed Kong that I was about to fall asleep. His response was “we could always play magic” and INSTANTLY, I MEAN I-N-S-T-A-N-T-L-Y we were both up and digging through our bags for our cards. It was by far the most nerdy moment of my entire life. From cuddles to searching for cards and dice, in quite literally a split second, simply at the mention of Magic: The Gathering…not sure if proud…or really, really ashamed. Aside from nerding out over Magic, Friday was pretty uneventful and full of random people I met and then forgot about the next day! And as always, I was up majority of the time, but about 6 am I decided I would take a nap, especially since I was to work in the Dealer’s room all day Saturday!
Saturday. UGH! Saturday! 9:30 a.m. rolls around and I report for duty at The Dragon’s Hoard booth in full Applejack cosplay. Cheap cowboy boots + standing on your feet all day + little sleep + recovering from a night of partying – food = a TERRIBLE day of work. It was pure torture. My only relief was the wonderful Captain Shameless. I love him dearly for understanding my misery and making it bearable! Majority of my Saturday was spent in the booth, prancing around in heels, lacing girls into corsets and just the general hullabaloo of working in a vendor’s booth. Met and took pictures with some pony friends and received several compliments on my portrayal of Applejack 🙂
After my shift FINALLY ended, I retreated back to my room for a couple of hours where I sat in bed and made kandi and prepared myself for the rave! And now to the rave. The rave was grand, once it finally got started and until the hotel shut it down an hour early.
*The following is a plea to all convention and hotel staff, as well as attendees. Please read carefully.*
Really people?! WTF? The rave is the biggest event I’ve seen at every con I’ve attended. Time, energy, stress and love goes into making each rave a special experience for the con attendees! The event coordinator listens to multiple auditions/mixes/sets/what-have-you and then chooses a select few who he/she thinks will create the best experience for the con-goers. They plan, organize, budget…they do EVERYTHING to make sure the rave is a success. The individual DJ’s play sets specifically for the crowd of people they are playing for. No good DJ will play the same set at an anime con that they would at a video game con or nightclub or a brony con. When they are told that they will be able to perform at a certain place, they plan a specialized group of songs that will be catered to the audience the night of the show. Why on earth can’t people respect that??? Not allowing the rave to start on time and/or cutting it short is telling these people you don’t care about any of the hard work they put into YOUR event!
Now, with my rant out of the way, the Sugoicon 2012 rave was outstanding! Aary and I went HAM! We were both aching within an hour after the rave was shut down, and the remainder of our weekend was spent saying goodbye and showing friends exactly how much we care for each other.
All in all Sugoicon 2012 was a great experience. I saw a different side of the con life and I have a new-found appreciation for all the hard work and effort required to make a convention successful. Was your Sugoicon 2012 in fact…sugoi? Mine sure as hell was ❤
*ps…JASON JASON I LOVE JASON!
Finally finished the second seaons of Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni, and at the end of the episode there were photos of a “real life Hinamizawa” so of course, I had to do some invistigation. Found this article and now I’m freaking out! I need to go here!
IF this ever actually happens (though it is HIGHLY unlikely) you best believe I will be rocking my Mion Sonozaki cosplay ERRYDAY!
Okay, admittedly I am biased being a Higurashi fanboy but out of all but the places in Japan I have visited, I recommend a summer visit to Shirakawa-go the most.
Shirakawa-go is an ancient city in central Japan, deep in the Japanese Alps. Most only attempt to go there during the summer (as I did) as it is often covered in deep snow. Shirakawa-go is famous for its unique style of houses which are still lived in today.

Last Wednesday marked the release of Borgore’s newest video, “Decisions,” featuring Miley Cyrus and it has (once again) brought up a topic that I need to share my thoughts on. Many people are appalled by Borgore’s decision to include Cyrus on this track because she is a “talent-less pop star” or some stupid shit like that. Borgore hits the nail right on the head with the statement “if someone used to like the tune before he knew she was on it, and now he doesn’t like it just because she’s on it, he’s lying to himself” (Read full article here).
OH MY GOD! I love this man! I kinda liked him before- now, it’s love. Far too often an artist is written off because of what genre they are from or because of who their audience is. Simply because someone is popular DOES NOT mean they aren’t talented. What they have done is exactly the same thing that nearly all musicians want- they have made a career out of something they love. Let’s face the truth here for a moment…making music doesn’t pay the bills unless there is someone to listen to that music. The more people listen to your music, the more money you make, and the more bills you can pay. It’s really quite simple.
Miley Cyrus has an exceptional voice. She made a KILLER female vocalist on “Decisions.” Anyone who disputes this fact is looking at a name, not the music. Let’s stop making decisions about music based on who its from and instead focus on what it makes us feel. Who’s with me?
I haven’t used the Reblog feature on here yet, but this seems like a great post to use it on. To all you nerds out there feeling like love will never find you, I present this ❤ ❤ ❤
To Whom It May Concern,
Love (or by the ever love sick entitled “wove”) is quite the interesting phenomenon. We have no control on when it occurs and when it does, it can be a real pain in the ass to deal with. Love is what can make us strong, give us hope and truly make us feel that we have purpose. Now I have never had the opportunity to look into someones eyes and truly say “I love you” and it come from the bottom of not just my heart, but me as a being. There are moments where my absence to love another becomes unnerving. There are also times where I feel like I’ve been thrown into some crappy movie and everywhere I go, it seems as though every couple in the world decided to follow and look all dare I say “cute”.
To be honest, it does bug me, but only for a slight…
