This year's Fanimecon had two major shocks for me.

The first was a policy change regarding access points. In previous years, people who didn't buy a pass were only blocked from attending specific events. They were still free to roam the convention center's open spaces on both the upper and lower floors. This year, the entirety of the upper floor and a good chunk of the ground floor were off-limits except to pass-holders. This is a HUGE drag.

The second was the sharp increase in registration prices. The last time I attended Fanimecon, a 4-day pass was somewhere in the neighborhood of $60. This year, it was $85. Look, guys, this isn't Venezuela. We're not experiencing 50% annual inflation. This kind of price increase, in combination with the first policy change that I mentioned, is absolutely inexcusable, especially when Kublacon is still only $60.

It was fun while it lasted. Maybe I'll start my own convention with blackjack and hookers.
Things in the Universe / Felicia Day is overrated

Felicia Day's biggest professional accomplishments:

- Ruined the Youtube series that made her famous to begin with
- Had cancer in one episode of House
- Did a voice in one of the Fallout games
- Is Whil Weaton's friend in real life
- Once expressed a very poorly informed opinion on gamergate
- Has attended some conventions

Let's be real. If not for "The Guild", no one would have any idea who this chick is.
Back in august 2014, I posted a thread in which I linked to a preview of a non-anime video that I was developing, and asked if you'd be interested in showing it. I was told that you would "take it into consideration", but in the 8 months since then, there has apparently been absolutely no discussion of it on your end, and Ewu is acting like he has no clue what I'm talking about. Can I get some feedback here? Hell, at least a due date would be nice.
From the official standards:


MPEG2, AVI and MP4s accepted.
Frame rate should be either 23.97 or 29.97.
Please use resolutions of 720x480 or 1280x720. Higher resolutions will be scaled down.
Please compress your video- don't send us your original uncompressed copy. While we don't have a limit on filesize, we would prefer to not have to download 500MB+ videos!


• 192 Kilobits per second or better
• Choose stereo over joint stereo for best quality
• Sample at 44.1Khz

Now, here's what I don't get. The only reason I can imagine for having such uniform standards is that all the videos get spliced together into one large file. BUT if this is the case, then the 720x480 videos wouldn't mix with the 1280x720 videos. On the other hand, if every video gets its own file, we could have 48khz audio, weird resolutions like 752x320, PAL/SECAM framerates, whatever.

So what's the deal?

EDIT: also, is there an unofficial requirement that these be ANIME music videos, or can I send in my Star Wars music video and Aliens music video?
Normally, the only music videos that get shown at Fanimecon are either fan-made Anime Music Videos or awesomely bad Japanese official music videos.

And now for something completely different.

I've been working on a little project... a tribute to nerd girls everywhere... well, I'll let the video speak for itself:

Is this something that you'd like to see played on the main screen as a special event?
