Star Wars Celebration VI - The Condensed Version

Star Wars Celebration VI was just fantastic.  It's perfect for any Star Wars fan (except the poor kind), and it's a really good primer for going to something like Comic-Con.  I say that because you really have to pick and choose what you want to do, and you have to sacrifice some things for other things.  For example, I had to sacrifice some really interesting fan panels to go to panels that involved the guests.  And even then I had to sacrifice some of those for other guests!  So I'm just gonna go through the list I made of things I did at the con, and I'll have pics at the end to share!  Want an explanation on something more thoroughly?  Just ask!  I'd rather recap in podcast form, but unless I have a co-host, I think it would sound kinda lame.  Here we go:

Shane Helms is THE MAN!

I just want to let everyone know (as if you really needed further proof) that Shane Helms is THE MAN!  I don't know what happened, but I ordered a Vertebreaker shirt back in March, and it still hadn't arrived as of last week.  I sent THE MAN a friendly e-mail just asking about it, as I assume that his operation is run by himself and a few others at most.  I know he's been through a bit the last couple months, with a new kid on the way among some other things, so I was really just curious as to what was up more so than upset about this matter at all.  I come back from vacation and check my mail today to get a package.  I opened it up and found this.

That's right, not only the t-shirt, but a PERSONALLY autographed 8X10 from THE MAN himself!  This was totally unnecessary and I am extremely thankful!  I might have been lethargic from the weekend trip, but this certainly perked me right up!

So extreme thanks go out to Shane Helms.  Keep healing up, and if LLUSA ever comes around Tampa or Orlando, you can bet your ass I'll be there!

Double Jump!

Double Jump!

Been a tad bit busy the last couple of weeks.  Hell, I'm still busy, but I don't want to hold off much longer.  Also the server I'm working on for class is down, so I've gotta do something productive, right?  It helps that there was no Naruto one week and then no One Piece this week.  I'll still pick two winners though, one for each week.

Also, in some semi-anime related news, I'll be at Supercon in Miami all weekend, hopefully having a good time.  Come say hi and junk!

Also, another Gantz to end it this week.

Weekly Jump Off 21

Week 21!

For once I read these about a week ago.  I'm going to try to go quickly because school and Suda51 games are really eating my time up this week.  I generally want to stay short anyway, because you should really read these comics yourself!

Gantz as well this week.  I should be doing "better" things right now...  Proofreading is also still for chumps this week!

Weekly Jump Off 20

Week 20!

So it looks like we're a month shy of being halfway done with this year of manga.  That's really the only thing special I could come up with for the twentieth edition.  Although I might have an announcement of some going-on coming up.  Haven't decided yet.

No proofreading again, as I should be in bed.  In fact, I welcome the grammar police!

Weekly Jump Off 19

Week 19!

Alright.  Gonna try a slightly new (well, probably old, and the way I used to do it.  I don't remember.) format.  I'm probably still going to write these at the 11th hour, knowing me, but I'm going to actually read them first only writing the most basic of points  Then I'll write what I remember and only go back to pick up some details.  This way they'll be shorter, and actually the parts worth remembering, right?  I still plan on going through the end of the year.  We need an ultimate champion!

Not a terrible week, but I've seen better.  Also, more Gantz, and screw proofreading this time, I'm tired.
