my bade was flipepd over half the time...they didnt care lol

Saw the AX with by live streaming this year....Fanime needs to step it up

AX as in Anime Expo?
Why would anyone want to watch a livestream of a convention? That just sounds so odd to me.
I mean sure Im guessing there are industry panels to tune in to, but Im doubtful any big news wont show up on the net days later, and at least for me being at the event and doing things is the appeal of a convention.
Yes AX is the only Anime Expo I know of in Cali...

Million Dollar questions: why do people livestream on Facebook? or anywhere else for that matter do you find that strange too?

Its probably of panels, guests, and i am hoping the major events (cosplay and AMV), as well as the music event..

I want to see this mainly because I can't make it to AX anymore.

I mean I do find it the oddest thing that Twitch is what it is, games usually being available with ease for people to play for themselves.

For those saying that this was the worst Fanime ever, the common denominator I noticed so far is alcohol and social issues. Those are you and your friends' choices for ir/responsibility, not the convention.

It's been compliments all around.
No one has blamed the con for their own personal issues... at least not yet. Dun dun dun.

Yeah generally alcohol can be a pretty bad issue over con. I myself like to get a bit of a buzz before heading out over the night, but a lot of my friends feel the need to get completely wasted beforehand. The guy that passed out in my room did unknowingly drink Absinthe not realizing how much alcohol is contained in it usually (about twice that of whisky and other usual hard drinks), but also is known to have a drinking problems in general.
On the flip side alcohol did make myu other buddy with an infected tooth able to function during con by keeping his tooth relatively clean, but eh still would be nice if they didnt have to drink so much. At least I didnt have somebody snorting coke in my bathroom this year =P

General Convention Discussion / How was everyones Con Weekend?
« on: May 29, 2017, 08:09:10 PM »
I hope everyone had a good weekend this year?

I unfortunately did not.

PreEvent
For the most part everything was ready and I was excited and rearing to go. Despite my terrible allergies this year which developed into a annoying cough, I actually was a bit more energetic then I normally am, and I took all the usual precautions to help alleviate those allergies.

Thurs
Fine for a Day 0 for the most part. Got Pretty drunk and Swap Meet, went around town eating. Found this Icecream Sandwich place called Creme a couple of blocks out after learning B&J closed, amazing place with fresh warm cookies for the sandwich as well as some other options.

Fri
Wasted a lot of time waiting for people to show up for our dinner deal we usually do, as well as getting people into cosplay. Overall an Ok, but uneventful day.

Sat
Started out alright. Then came back to the hotel to find a friend over-drank. Long Story Short, he fell in the bathroom and threw up several times while unconscious. Requiring us to get into the muck and turn him over on his side so he wouldn't drown on his own vomit. After a few hours when he regained some consciousnesses he could not tell us some basic information, and one of our guests (Great guy that stayed around the entire time to help out) told us we had to call the ambulance after that because he may have a concussion. So after they came and took him away, I had to go and clean up the pool of vomit. Most of my latter part of the night was wasted there.

Sun
I was determined to make use of this day best I could and not be held up by my friends dilly dallying, but at this point it seems I got extra unlucky and developed a sinus infection of sorts, and after a few hours out at Con I was incapacitated and had to retire. Missed the vast majority of the night, but still managed to stay up from the ruthless cough that I had developed which required constant maintenance.

Mon
Well I still felt like shit, but was mobile enough to clear out my rooms and get a few items out of the dealers hall, though I didnt get to bargain at all being effectively as dead as I was, which for me is usually half the fun of the Dealers Hall on Monday. Overall I was looking forward to getting back home. Had some miso soup at a sit down Chinese place near Ramada. Got my traditional Buritozilla as my Fanime castaway. Immediately went to my parents place to get antibiotics. Hoping this infection dies down over the week.

PostWrapup
Overall, probably the worst Con I have been to, and that sucks because for the most part it had little to do with the Con itself, which from what I saw had some decent content available that I would enjoy. And this is usually my one vacation for the year where I can ignore school and work and relax (albeit while getting plenty of exercise from walking around).

Dealers Room / Re: Merch old vs. new

There are a few booths in Dealer Hall that sell some older stuff, but really if you are looking for old stuff the Swap Meet is the best place to shop.

lol why would we bring drugs into something that doesn't relate with at all

Probably the reason anyone takes drugs > They make you feel good/better and can give you energy in the case if uppers. You can be assured that there are drugs all over Con. It is inescapable given the nature of the Con (and its 24h days).
No because people turned it into one and it started to get out of control (drinking included)...I've been going to them since 1999.  Why do you think glow sticks arent allowed

When did they implement that policy? I have not been to a Fanime 'Dance' for 2 or 3 years, but last I was there there was certainly people with at least electric glow sticks. I imparticulary remember the only issue with chemical glow sticks was that they could leak and cause a mess and werent allowed.

 you have to be pretty naive if you think the majority of people who listen to electronic music and dance all night don't do drugs...

the no glowstick policy ....I dunno for a while now ...i seriously doubt Fanime was concerned with people spilling glow stick chemicals.

Well I remember specific rules where chemical glowsticks were banned at one point while electric ones were not. I dont remember the specific year, but chemical sticks sticks could not even be sold in the dealers hall or swap meet, but electric ones were widely available. I could be remembering though.

General Convention Discussion / Fanime 2017 Weather Forecast
« on: May 16, 2017, 04:40:43 PM »
Looks like we are going to have pretty perfect weather all weekend long in mid+ 70s. A little cloud cover a few days but nothing major.

https://weather.com/weather/tenday/l/USCA0993:1:US
http://www.accuweather.com/en/us/san-jose-ca/95110/daily-weather-forecast/347630?day=1

That heat wave at the beginning of the week should hopefully not stick around. At most we might see some 80s.
Or these can be totally inaccurate.


(and this year Im pretty sure I didnt look at the wrong week!)

Hotel and Facilities / Re: Fanime moved my hotel reservation

Saw a post on the unofficial fanime thread on FB on this, looks like a few people got reallocated do to overbooking. This happened a year or two back as well, but that time it was not nearly as close to convention day.

I myself am on my 10th or 11th year. Much too old.

General Convention Discussion / Re: Lockers At Fanime
« on: April 06, 2017, 07:05:10 PM »
I may be wrong, but I am unaware of any lockers on sight.
Im guessing you are commuting in then? Do you have any friends getting a room that you can stash stuff in?
If not, I suppose you can bring a traveling bag, which if you are commuting in will also be valuable space for lugging around anything you might pick up at Con from swap meet or the dealers hall or such.
