Stuff about me and what I’m up to!

Bound for Toronto, Bound for NYCC, Bound for Press

I will be moving to Toronto for a while on September 28th, in an excitingly uncertain and risky situation that I could probably better describe in a devoted blog post someday in the future.

As a result, I will be making it to the now Greyhound-able New York Comic Con!  I’m really excited since it may well be the biggest convention I’ve attended to date.

Adding to that excitement is the fact that I have been approved for my first-ever press badge.  I recently acquired a Zoom H4n audio recorder for the purposes of upping my audio quality in videos that aren’t toy reviews and streamlining my mobile audio recording set-up, which means I am going to try and put together some coverage of the NYCC that will hopefully not be as amateurly-made as my usual fare.  I intend to make good on the press badge and try to at least give some worthy coverage of the independent toy company exhibitors who have, in particular, drawn my attention to the show.  This perhaps means the NYCC will be a bit more work than play on my end, but I’m still really pumped.  😀  Hoping to record several Vaudiosonic podcasts, as well as a vlog and a couple of interviews.

So if you’re going to the show, I hope to see you there!  Right now I suspect I will do a lot of loitering around any booth related to Glyos.  Also, I got a ticket to see Jay & Silent Bob Get Old at the show, so live podcast audiencing times lie ahead!

WTF@TFW – Episode 156 and Primetime – Metal Attraction

WTF @ TFW – 156 – July 15 2011

Click to proceed!

Capping a 3-year run of weekly podcast recordings, Omegus and Aaron join an obscenely fatigued Vangelus to try and maneuver him through Transformers news, Skype disconnection, and iTunes reviews.

WTF Primetime – 16 – Metal Attraction – July 12 2011

Click to proceed!

Vangelus, Gogdog, and Aaron are metallically attracted to form a tribunal of completely innocent discussion about a completely innocent episode of Transformers Prime that involves magnets.

That’s 3 years of weekly recordings, ladies and gentlemen.  Thank you all, so very much.

Gendrone Revolutionaries and Glyans arrived!

…last week!  Just in time to hang out on my desk for the Callgrim Custom Corps 1.0 drop, too.

Vangelus Review 119-R – TFX-04C Crystal Protector

I tried using masking/matte things for the first time in the opening of this.  Was a lot of fun, even if it didn’t end up looking all that great.  XD

Some thoughts after my first viewing of Transformers: Dark of the Moon

Thanks to the kind Canadians, I got in on a press advance screening of Dark of the Moon for free!  Full 3D and whatnot.  What follows are my initial thoughts, primarily spoilerless but still behind a cut.

I do want to mention though: This is not what I would call my comprehensive review.  I still have plenty of additional thoughts to come up with about DOTM, both in recording a vlog about the film and participating in one or two podcast roundtables through WTF@TFW.

LA Weekly Botcon 2011 article

I am back home!  Now to get back to propogating videos and podcasts into this site.

Great show, will have more to say later on, but I wanted to share this LA Weekly article about it.

Partly because I got quoted in it~  😀
