Experiencing OMG!Con

Tumblr.comThis time I’m going to talk about something different that I’ve never talked about before and that is conventions!

I’ve always wanted to talk about them at some point, but I haven’t gotten the chance to go to any of the ones lately because like most people I work and deal with other life problems that come our way. That’s okay though. I finally was able to go to another anime convention after so long.

Art StallOMG!Con was my second time going to an anime convention and I freaking love going to these events. This one was located in Owensboro, Kentucky on June 9-11. It was freaking awesome as hell! To be surrounded by like-minded people like myself, who are really into anime and like to cosplay and all that good stuff really puts a smile to my face. Before, you guys ask….no I did not cosplay for this event, but someday I will just not this time. Yes, I will take better pictures next time. I was distracted by everything going around me, so I wasn’t too concentrated on the picture-taking while I was there. Until, I master this art….. JUST DEAL WITH IT.

As you can see though, the thing I like most about conventions besides the people, costumes and the vibe is the vendors section. You never know what you’re going to see in that place. You can always find cool stuff there and for a decent price, but this where they always get you. If you don’t got the cash then I would steer clear of the vendor’s section at all costs or they will bleed you dry. This is what I do I scan all the stalls making a mental list of all the things that I want and if I happen to find two of the same item at two different stalls then I find out which one is cheaper before buying instead of being a compulsive shopper.

Anime StallTo me, that’s just common shopper sense, but the main thing is though that I’m always coming out of there with SOMETHING. Never Nothing. I always have to have at least buy something to remember the occasion.

I enjoyed everything that they had to offer to the food to the arcade that they had in there, too. My only regret was going to on the third day which I discovered is what I like to call the ‘winding down’ day. I was so mad at myself, but now I know that when it comes to cons you need to go on the 1st and 2nd day. If you didn’t already know this most conventions last for a full three days and almost always on the weekends because they know that if theirs any days of the week that everyone is off its on the weekend.

I had a great time during this event and if I have the time next year I’ll definitely drop by and see what’s going on. Also, if their are any events that you all recommend that I should go to and see then just let me know in the comments below. Thank you!

Space Dandy Season 2

Source: http://www.sentionaut-plus.tumblr.com

Space Dandy season 2 is a the continuation of what Dandy and his crew was doing in the first season. Just to give you all a recap of what the show is about, it’s about a team of alien hunters that go all across the universe trying to catch rare aliens for money. Unfortunately, for them they never really catch anything. They’ve had some close calls before but still haven’t caught anything.

Their hunting skills have gotten so bad that Scarlet, who is an inspector who works for the registration center actually suggests to Dandy and his team that they should just think about a career change. Which hurt their pride immensely, but its like they do anything they anything. Meow, the cat alien just eats, sleep and play video games or go on social networks. The robot, QT, just follows the crew around and keeps telling the rest of them how useless they are and Space Dandy, the leader of the team, is the one who causes most of the trouble and sometimes gets them out of it, too.

Oh and I forgot to mention that Gogol Empire is still after Dandy because they believe that he holds the secret to them winning the war against the other empire. They are still trying to capture them with no luck on their part either. For some reason, they think that Dandy is some kind of genius that keeps trying to avoid them at every turn. But, Dandy isn’t even aware that their trying to capture him in the first place!

I wonder when their going to ever capture Dandy and see  what happens next.

My favorite episodes so far are There’s Music in the Darkness, Baby and I Can’t be the Only One, Baby. In the episode, There’s Music in the Darkness, Baby, Dandy disband his team and then gets a letter of invitation from a rare and creepy alien who he thinks when he gets a letter is a pretty girl alien. Turns out he invited him so he could freeze him and steal his smile.

In the other episode, I Can’t be the Only One, Baby was very funny in my opinion. Space Dandy and his crew end up going to parallel universes where they kept meeting different versions of themselves. Personally, my favorite parallel universe Dandys’ were the first one with the blue hair and one who kept doing Michael Jackson moves. Why he kept doing that was beyond me?

How this hilarious season is going to end is beyond me. Will the Gogol Empire finally  capture Dandy? Will they ever get good at alien hunting? Will Dandy ever get a girlfriend? Will Dandy ever be able to buy the franchise called BooBies? Who knows, but I’m excited to find out.
