MechaCon VII - Scott McNeil & Steve Blum Panel - Part 1 − 8


Barely edited and nearly uncensored :) The panel called “The Best There is at What We Do” with Scott McNeil and Steve Blum. This is the first of 8 parts…

I apologize for the horrible camera quality. I had 2 cameras and switched to the better one for the final 2 videos. It didn’t help that I was seated pretty far back. I advise you to watch this in a small format :3

Question:

Not creepy at all! :) Thank you so much! I'm sure it will be tons of fun! It always is. Do you plan to go this year as well?

Asked by 8bitsyndrome-deactivated2011053

Answer:

Yes! I’m so excited, I can hardly wait! A friend of mine and I are going together. I moved away a few years ago, and it seemed like a great excuse to have fun together again :3

Enraptured

Just checking in with another (enormous) vlog. I wanted to show something that I found, that I almost forgot I had…not to mention announce (formally) big news for August :)

MechaCon IV - Vs. A Leo

The Vs. A Leo panel at MechaCon is legendary. I went for MechaCon II and I enjoyed it so much I bought a T-shirt :3 So, when I heard they were having it again, I demanded that we go… Totally worth it.

MechaCon IV - Cosplay For Adults

The infamous Master Roshi was scheduled to host a panel called “Cosplay for Adults” :D We went because we knew that he was a great, fun guy and we were interested in what he’d have to say. We ended up having a lot of fun!

Mecha Con IV 01

Here’s the first video of Reiko’s and my trip to MechaCon. It was Reiko’s first visit to MechaCon and my second (though I had no company last time). We made our own fun when we had to and had fun the rest of the time, so it worked out well. More videos to follow (as soon as I can edit them :3).

Mecha Con Plans

So… I got a call from Reiko not too long ago. She was driving/moving back down to Louisiana. Her hubby Jim is deploying soon, so they wanted to get her and baby Owen fully moved down there. The rent is much cheaper, and she wont be alone in a city she doesn’t like surrounded largely by people she don’t know.

And then she tells me, “Are you taking the Summer off? Because if you are, I will pay for your plane ticket down here. In fact, when’s Louisiana-Con??”

I had never even heard of Louisiana Con, so I googled it. I didn’t find anything, but … I did find Mecha Con. It’s in August, and it moved to New Orleans. And that sounds most promising.

Reiko’s and my last hoo-ra was Mecha Con in 2008 (Mecha Con IV). It. Was. A Blast! We ended up making friends (who no longer speak to us) and got some swag, and I took tons of video (which I still haven’t edited fully), and I took so many pics that I made a huge pair of matching scrapbooks for both of us. It was just one of those experiences that was so fun and enjoyable for both of us that we both look back on it fondly. And, needless to say, the prospect of going back with Reiko is exciting :)

So, this year, Mecha Con’s gonna be in New Orleans instead of Lafayette. It’ll be from August 26 −28th. My Dad’s told me that he has had a ton of Delta Sky miles all built up from flying offshore so much over the years, so he’s offered to let me use his sky miles for the flights, which would be awesome. Then all we have to worry about is our passes and the hotel rooms. I’m actually hoping to save up some money before then… Lord knows it won’t be much, but it’s better to be conscious of it than forgetful.

It’d be nice if I could visit with more of the girls more often, but none of us have ideal circumstances for visits. Jen’s in Georgia and a student like me. Chibi’s busy with her dream job in NV. And Scamp, though closer, is still tormented by her own SAD. So, I console myself knowing it just isn’t the right time with the others, and enjoy the prospect of spending time with Reiko :)

So, it looks like I’ll be flying down some time at the end of August to New Orleans :) I’m really looking forward to it, and already making plans now. I really hope all the plans go through.
