Just a quick update to keep this blog vital…
The biggest news for me this summer is that I won’t be moving. At least, not until January. My girlfriend got accepted into the closest of her grad school options. It will still be a bit of a drive for us to see each other, but I intend to move to somewhere around Durham, Hillsborough, or Chapel Hill to bridge that gap a bit while staying close to my job. I’ll also have lived in my current apartment for over 8 years and due for a change of scenery.
The panel we’re doing for Animazement 2011 is coming together nicely. It’s working title is “What The…?!? Moments In Anime”, though I’m lobbying to have it adjusted to “…of Anime’s Past”. Supposedly, we’ll know for sure if we have a panel to rename by the end of this month, at the graces of con staff approval.
Dustin and I have been putting or heads together on the presentation. I’m trying to incorporate some kind of audience participation so that they’re engaged and we don’t come off like some boring lecture that people sit in just to rest their feet. I think I’m more nervous about the technical side of the panel than our performance. We almost have enough clips at the ready. If you have any suggestions of complete batshit crazy anime moments, please send them in!
The podcast may actually miss a week in May. Kevin and I have a handful of side projects that’s keeping us busy. Plus we’re dealing with some personal hangups; i.e., my car’s been needing a lot of work this past month. I may try to put something together as filler for that week, depending on time, since I always like to have something up for listeners to enjoy every week. Skype with a guest co-host? Do a solo podcast? I could lazily throw something together, letting the surprise be that week’s fun… Stay tuned.
