Friday night, 9pm at State Room 1
AnimeHELL got misplaced on AKon16's schedule, but with few e-mails we worked it all out. AnimeHELL is still a go, we'll be haunting State Room 1 at 9pm on Friday night with all your favorites and some new stuff, too. Look for the flyers at the Adam's Mark hotel for details.

Once more, Hell at Animazement was a rousing success, with the main ballroom packed to the gills with easily amused attendees. Thanks to everyone who showed up and special kudos to David Smith for providing the propaganda and to Daryl Surat for hanging out and providing moral support in David's absence.
I've followed gaav's lead and posted the complete Hell line-up plus commentary in the AnimeHELL forum, so cruise on over for the gory details.
Phil, who hopes to start posting somewhat more often than once a year...

Though the real Hell action is no doubt north of the border this weekend, Phil Lee sends me to send word of Hell at Animazement 2005 in Raleigh, North Carolina on Friday. He has a very musical Hell in the works, it sounds like, with lots of weird music videos, some East Indian stuff involving tractors in some fashion, mannequin family sitcoms, Bob Sapp guest-starring on the live-action You're Under Arrest, Survival Tobita versus Ken the Box on the high-school gym mats of the Saitama Pro-Wrestling Corporation, and other good stuff. Friday at 11PM in the main auditorium, assuming they manage to kick out the karaoke contest on time this year.
Because I happened to have the art lying around from this month's OPM anime column, Captain Tylor subs in for the original centerpiece to the flyer, which was deemed too fascist for prime time.

Having trouble with our former Webhost, so we're picking up the pieces and moving to a new server. Sorry about the missing pictures and Video Clips. We'll try to replace them and get everything back up to speed as soon as possible.

I'd like to thank everyone in the audience for making this year's Anime Hell at ACen a very fun time not only for everyone else, but especially for me as well. I had a great and manic time at the mixing deck controls and behind the mic. The energy of the crowd was beyond amazing, and getting to lead the 1500+ in the audience in singing 'Fish! Fish! Fish!' was certainly grin-inducing indeed.
Hell was set in the 10pm-Midnight slot, which i was able to start right on the nose. I debuted the Anime Hell Slide Show (like movie theater pre-movie slides) as the crowd entering/warmup tech/stage changeover went on in the ~9:30-10 timeframe.
oh, and to the woman who yelled that she wanted to bear Heino's children, I'm both disturbed and yet oddly intrigued by that remark.
Here's the rough set list of what i ran this year at Anime Hell, with a * indicating it was a clip new to ACen this year, as you can see, quite a lot of new material was in the mix. As expected, Stapler Fahrer Klaus was the featured success, though so many of the old & new stuff got such good response it was by no means a runaway.

Okay, this may very well be the worst film ever made by man, but I've said that before, so I'll reserve judgement. You can read the full
Jon was amazed at the success of "Feeders" and although he had vowed never to make a sequel to any of his movies he was intrigued when he received a call from the Polonia Brothers informing him that a sequel was in the works.
Due to geographical and scheduling problems Jon couldn't join the Polonias for an actual shoot so it was decided that Jon would shoot material on his own and send it to the Polonias to be edited in with their material.
Jon had his reservations at first but ended up being very happy with the end result. He also ended up shooting more material than previously asked for including various location shots and one death scene which was also pieced together by the Polonias and ended up in the final picture.
The feeder 'puppets' used in the movie weren't the same as the ones used in "Feeders", primarily because they had been destroyed during the first shoot. New puppets had to be fabricated based on the original design and included workable jaws.

After spending a fruitless ten minutes trying to add the correct AWA dates to the "calendar" on the blog home page, let me just take this time to point out to everybody that Anime Weekend Atlanta is in September, not October.
More info on AWA can be found at www.awa-con.com.
Sorry about that, It's fixed now. [-d!]
