Things in the Universe / Please help. I'm trying to figure out something.
« on: December 23, 2015, 07:01:52 PM »
Ever since I've been going to fanime, I've wanted to DJ at one of the dance nights. I've applied twice and got denied both times. I've been trying to figure out what it takes to get chosen to play but I can't seem to find out why or how. I just recorded a mix tonight and if any of you wouldn't mind, please take a listen and critique the hell out of it and tell me what you think, please.


Thank you for the opportunity. You guys passed on me but I'll try again next year. :)

I received the following message on 2/5/2015 and haven't seen or heard anything relating to the dance since. Is there any update?

DJ Applicant:

I am curious about getting a DJ gig at fanime next year. Mind if I asked how you went about it?

That same type of TARDIS was at my company meeting last quarter. I had to carry it and it smelled sooooooo bad.

I'd be rude to you too, if you thought $15 was too expensive for prints. A lot of those artists put a lot of time and effort into making something worth buying. A lot of those people actually paid large amounts of money to go to school, put a lot of time into studying, and lost a lot of their hair dealing with finals and disappointed parents. What I saw in there was a lot of incredible deals for prints and handmade items. I didn't see anything more expensive than $40, in regards to art prints, and even that was a great deal. IMO, some of that art work would have still been a great deal at twice the price they were asking.

This was my first real fanime experience but I've been collecting art prints for almost ten years. I've paid as much as $400 for prints before. Some of what I saw in AA was just as good, if not better.

You know, my friend I was with was harassing me all weekend to cosplay. Dressing up is not really my thing, but that doesn't mean I'm completely opposed to it.

I'm sure you were one of those people I saw smiling. It was fu**ing cool, man.

I actually want to try and DJ at one of the dances next year. That would be really cool.

Mod edit: its called a dance

Happy Things in the Happy Universe / Fanime 2014 vibe (review?)

Let me preface this by stating that my anime knowledge and experience is slightly above n00b, but still quite minimal in comparison to the majority of the attendees of Fanime. That being said, this was the second time I attended Fanime, but the first time I did the entire event from Thursday to Monday. It was an incredible experience for me. I feel like I witnessed something truly special in life.

I was a total outcast growing up, all through school, and always felt socially awkward. It wasn't until I went to my first rave in 1999 that I felt like I belonged somewhere for the first time in my life. It was the first time I ever felt like I was around people who were just like me. The general acceptance and shared interest in everything was so foreign, yet incredibly amazing to me. That right there is something that I thought was lost and assumed I would never witness anything like that ever again... Until this weekend.

I watched so many people, of all ages, and all lifestyles, sharing a common ground. I watched all of these people smiling and enjoying themselves, and looking like they were all great friends who hadn't seen each other in years. I met people that were so fun to be around, it reminded me of what I saw 15 years ago. Regardless of what you're into, or not into, you were all cool as hell. I now have a gigantic list of things I need to check out and learn about, which I cannot wait to start on. I am a bit depressed that the convention is over because it was a reminder of a feeling I never wanted to end in the first place. I wanted to share this with this board because maybe others feel the same way. Maybe there are some that needed to hear or see this. Maybe this will remind someone of there first time and it will bring a smile to their face. Either way, whether it falls on deaf ears or not, I felt the need to share it.

I'm just happy that something exists like this, still. I've been feeling like life has lost all happiness lately. Sometimes it's nice to get cheesed out on life. If you stuck through this whole novel, thank you.

the con was cool... so many feels.
