Pre-Rumblings [Kami-Con Season 3]

Well, well, well. Here we are again. Nearly a year gone by and it’s already time for another Kami-Con.

Last year, I made a post following the weekend-long event, giving it an overall thumbs-up with minor complaints. However, the hosting organization felt otherwise and I got wind of a special meeting held just to whine about how insulted they were that someone criticized their precious convention. To them I say: Grow the fuck up. Instead of bitching about me (and others whom you received complaints from), work on improving your convention, like a REAL organization would, instead of hugging each other and crying about it.

I wholeheartedly stand by everything I said in that previous post and see that I was even greatly generous in giving praise, skipping over many of my major dissatisfactions. Don’t expect the same generosity this year, should I see a train wreck happen.

Oh, and by the way, while I am not affiliated with any UA organization (I’m not even a student anymore), there are whisperings of the maybe-not-so-kosher workings of Kami-Con. Illegal gambling, anyone?

Now, since that’s out of the way, I can proceed.

Because I was, in fact, impressed with the convention at large last year, I have taken the liberty of preregistering for Kami-Con Season 3, which takes place this weekend, Feb. 19-20, at the University of Alabama’s Ferguson Center. With my DSi in pocket and a fresh paycheck in the bank, I imagine it to be an eventful two days, though this year I pray that actual interesting panels will be held that might pique my interest. I can’t say that I’m too jazzed about the idea of sitting around, connecting Pokewalkers with strangers again. Though I am really excited about the special Pokemon Center room. I’m sure you’ll catch me in there.

Now, don’t worry. I’m going to remain as objective as possible when it comes time for me to write up my thoughts, I just don’t plan on sugar coating anything.

Until then, Space Cowboys!

Musical Break [Simon Curtis]

While scouring the webs, I came across an article about an emerging artist by the name of Simon Curtis that has been getting some attention from big names in the industry lately, but 90% of the general public have yet to discover as they are too busy sucking at the tit of Gaga.

I’ve just spent the last few minutes listening to Curtis’s album (which you can download for free at his website), 8-bit Heart. I’m fairly impressed, I must say.

Jump the break for further scrutiny.
