Yeah, I hope the new guy doesn't overstay his welcome. Heard though they're bothering to do a movie with him if it's what I think it is that's taking Heino's place now.

I understand that Rich Lather does a really good Hard Gay impersonation.

Jeff Tatarek said...

Yes, indeed it is Hard Gay. And yes, I can do a pretty decent Hard Gay impersonation...in voice only.

I think that HG is a good replacement for the time being, unless new Heino stuff surfaces. Nothing is ever set in stone here in Anime Hell land.

How did the shows go? I heard you were judging hentai amvs saturday night...

From what I'm reading this year's Ohayo seems like it was kind of a train wreck crossed with a county fair. They didn't have the convention center this year? WTF?

And what's up with the only one DVD playa??

we had multiple players. main problem was that when we 'paused' during a pre-edited montage/sequence to do some Choose Your Fate, only had the 2nd player to use and had to change discs, lest we lose the place on the other one ^^

Thinking about Hell-related material I'd love to try one day, I often want to relive a show I used to be glued at nearly a quarter-century ago called "Starcade". But the way I want to present it, I randomly pick two guys from the audience and force 'em to play a classic 8-bit game (via MAME or any emulator) and see who gets the highest points in a minute's time to win whatever prize I might have lying around. I just think it's both cute and EVIL for me to force newbies into playing something as mundane as Taito's Zoo Keeper in front of a crowd in humility. Oh well, it's just a suggestion (and if anyone wants to steal it, be my guest).

Danno, I didn't end up judging the Hentai AMV Wars competition. I was actually supposed to provide color commentary, but they only had one mic so I just hung around in the front row cracking wise with the MC. They kept calling me "Grandpa", but we were all in on the joke. I think.

Dave, this year's Ohayocon was not that great. Largely stagnant guest list, personnel goofs causing the loss of prime convention room space no less than 2 weeks before the con (resulting in devastating ripples like panelists not knowing what the schedule was until a week before go-time which led to the inevitable flood of conflicts and missed opportunities), staffers stretched even MORE thin than is usual at cons, and a general feeling of malaise.

I'd like to be all-PC next year, since then I don't have to worry about burning DVDs or file format conversions that don't work. Oh, and I'll try not to have my motherboard go tits-up on December 26th. That'd be a BIG help.
