Shoujocon Part Deux

Well, be it ever so humble. . . Yes, I’m back. pictures from the con are here. Sorry about the quality about most. What can you expect from the aiptek camera. It does what it’s supposed to do. Nothing fancy like megapixels, but you get the gist. Which is better than memory, as far as I’m concerned.

But it was worth it. Well, maybe not the con, but making new friends and renewing friendships with the ones you already have are worth the trip up. It’s times like these where I make the resolution to go up and visit people without the excuse of a con.

I do regret one thing, and that is the fact that I didn’t get to spend as much time as I would have liked in New Jersey. That, and my lack of a decent Larva costume.

“mad props” to Carmel, Jackie, Adnan, and Tung for the “hookups” this weekend. You’ll see some of their handiwork in the pictures. Some interesting moments from the weekend include:

Hotohori and Chichiri’s cosplay kiss — Gun Buster drinking game — Bar B Q @ Carmel’s — New World Manga — Weak dealer room — One person asking for a picture — cosplayers — Jackie’s mom’s manicotti — Adnan’s scrambled eggs — Special, SPK and the GahtBustah! — Finding the rest of the Brawl cards —

Still haven’t seen the entire Final Fantasy movie, and I’m a bit bitter about that. Read a few reviews that trash the movie because it wasn’t convincing enough. I wasn’t expecting oscar material. It’s not oscar material. What it is, is a fun movie, something interesting to watch. It’s not a live-action film. It’s a film. Better than tomb raider. As good as say, Blade Runner. Man, I’m gonna catch hell for that one. I’ll write more about it later, definitely.

Oh, hey, and Mikey–I miss you too.

Cleaning House

Dangit. Never really goes like you expect it to. Housecleaning, that is.

So, instead of housekeeping, I watched Shrek a third time and went out for drinks with a few friends. Yes, it’s that good. I guess it’s that good because it goes against the whole “fairy tale” movie cliché. What other movie are you going to see a talking donkey (Eddie Murphy a la Mushu redux) and a female dragon. . . er, yeah. I’m not going to ruin it for you.

Also, despite what people think, Guapo’s in Tenleytown is pretty good mexican food. I didn’t realize it at the time, but damn. Forget that Chichi’s crap. Go to a Guapo’s. Me, I like the one in Tenleytown, because it’s where I go. But apparently, there are three locations.
