A couple of months late, I know. But I can't help but be happy to play this game. I once had a weird rule for not buying new Nintendo consoles, but I'm glad I bought a Switch.

I'm currently trying to win in 1st place with the Fire Stingray, but this is quite a challenge. Only one victory for me so far with the Wild a Mini Grand Prix XD

It went great for me when I got this link via Fanime's Twitter account.
The folks who made and sold merch at Fanime and other events throughout the years are retiring.They are having a sale.

Here is a link for their statement

I'm gonna miss them in the future  :(
Things in the Universe / R.I.P. Eddie Van Halen
October 10, 2020, 11:54:24 PM
People who know me know how much I love Van Halen, my favorite band. So naturally, I am currently upset over the loss of Eddie, the band's guitarist  :'( He lost his battle with cancer on Tuesday, Oct 6th, 2020.
But I am glad that I got to see the band during their 2015 tour. The concert wasn't perfect, but I still enjoyed it.
I leave you with a link to Eruption, an instrumental from the band's debut album.

P.S. I am aware that today, Oct 10th, is David Lee Roth's birthday. I guess irony can't hurt (in a desperate attempt to lighten the mood XD )

And here we go again. How was your hotel stay this year?

Hotel: Westin (Saint Claire)

Check-in and check-out went smoothly. Yay!
Still love that tall shower head  :)
Heater and airco worked wonderfully.

Weird coincidence:
Every time I was in the elevator, someone else went to my floor as well.

How does the dial in the fridge work? Do you turn it to make the temp colder, or do you leave it alone for the coldest temp?


No HBO on the TV...has it always been this way?
The king bed felt smaller than it did last year. I know that I'm not growing any taller.
I understand the need for a security guard in the lobby, but he gave me the vibe that he wanted to follow me all the way to my room (he didn't, but still that was weird).

Come back next year? Sure, why not.

Straightforward enough, just share your experience with the hotel you stayed at this year.

Hotel: Westin (Saint Claire) on Market and San Carlos


1 Smooth check in and check out.
2 A fridge
3 Awesome shower that goes above my head.
Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.
4 They got me a room on the 2nd floor. Sweet.


1 What's taking so long for them to email my receipt that I asked for? XD
2 Tiny elevator
3 One night, my key card didn't work on the door from the stairs to my floor, forcing me to use the elevator...come on...

Would I come back?
Very likely :)

Side note, my first choice for several years, the Ramada/Pacific Motor Inn is
Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.
I just watched them and they seem okay. Also the director who was chosen makes me skeptical.

Thoughts? Comments? Complaints? Mccloud?
Strangely, I could not find a thread for this. Basically, this is a thread to share your photo galleries, cosplay or not of this year's con. And videos too.

My cosplay set: if a cosplayer does not like a photo I took, I'll take it down upon request (send me a message if needed)

My general con pics:
Things in the Universe / R.I.P. David Bowie 1947-2016

The musician and entertainer has recently passed away from cancer. I imagine he is visiting Freddie Mercury on the other side right now.
FC 2000 is the one year that I went to for which I don't have a program guide for. I regret throwing out the one that I got. I hope to get a replacement someday, just for collector's sake, so to speak. Thus, I'm willing to pay for one.

Edit: Oh well, better luck next time for me. To honest, I confused meself with me own rules.
Rules and stuff:

-This thread will be closed once it hits number one.

-No particular order for this list

-You can not post more than once in a row. Please wait until someone posts a title after you.

-Don't forget the number next to you anime title (ie, 300. title here)

-Anime titles can include movies, oavs/ovas, onas, tv series, and official music videos.

-Post one title at a time. Exception is mentioned below.

-Honorable Mentions (HMs) will be allowed, but they must be related to the title you are posting (Example, if you put in a tv series, you can use a movie or two as HMs). You can subsequently post as many HMs as you want.

- Edit: Sequels and spinoffs must be listed as HMs next to the title you posted anyway.

New rule: You may now post more than one title per post.

New rule: No more sequel or spin off limits. This means that you can now post as many *franchise* movies and ovas as you want.

-I just think 500 sounds like a cool number. If this thread becomes popular enough, I MIGHT expand it to 1,000.

-You can use a website such as AnimeVice or MyAnimeList (these are just two examples) to help you find a title to post.

-Subject to change per questions and suggestions.

I'll start:

500. Fist of the North Star (1980s tv series)
I recently decided to try hosting another party thing sometime before the year ends. Nothing solid yet though, so I guess plans will be made up as this thread moves along.

Things in the Universe / Ketchup on your hot dogs?
November 20, 2009, 01:16:22 PM
I just felt like asking because I was thinking about the "debate" a while ago as I tried a Nathan's Famous dog at SJSU and put ketchup on it. I dunno.

As for me I say yay. I happen to like the way it tastes.

So, share why you are ok or NOT ok with putting ketchup on hot dogs.

I am so hype that I can't concentrate right now. More details later.
