ninjaHELL! Introductions and "Ikkkicon 4: A Look Back"

Hi there. My name's Christopher W. Reynolds, or as you probably know me "Kubu-kun The Sound Ninja," and I'm the founder of "ninjaHELL!", the Austin and San-Antonio area Anime Hell show. I've been doing this since Ikkicon 1, and hope to be doing it for years to come. We've expanded to doing San-Japan (A big hello to anyone who showed up to our show there last year. Hi.) and hope to do other conventions in the near future.

If you guys are interested in finding out more about me or the show in general, let me know in the comments and I'll double post the article I posted on my blog telling the whole tale.

Now, on to what you guys came here for - Ikkicon 4: A Look Back

Let me start by saying that we have way more fans than we thought we had. Both nights had a packed house. As is our history with Ikkicon, we had some technical difficulty. But the majority of it got ironed out. Except for Saturday (Thank God we were doing "What is ninjaHELL!" and we've gotten used to this sort of thing). On Friday Night we had the "Oldest Cell Phone", "Best Use of a Phone Book" and "Worst Holiday Memory" contests, which resulted in free stuff and a tear in almost everyone's eyes. On Saturday, two girls from the Austin Area REPO cast, Austin's Designer Hearts, brought a clip they had made and hosted a "Best Horror Movie Scream" and a "Find the Eyeballs While Blind" Contest. After, we degenerated into our usual show.

Playlists:

Friday

  • ninjaHELL! Presents: Telezonia
    • A classic clip of ours. We've decided to do it as our first RiffTrax. Even had a "Host Segment" where a Southwestern Bell employee and a lame Rapper jumped up and interrupted us to try and prove the project still had value.

  • Afterward, we showed some more clips
    • Sweatin to the Oldies

    (And here we are dancing to some of the songs.)
    • Alexander and the Terrible Horrible No Good Very Bad Day
    • "Abs of Steel" and "Learning to Line Dance"
    • Some of Gary Busey and Howie Mandell's Tribulation
Saturday

We spend the hour before answering people's questions about ninjaHELL! in general, our history, and various bits of advice. And we had to go an hour and a half over because of the lack of a VGA cable. And the Projector we would have had that had a VGA Cable attached and was suppose to be ours got held up because someone decided to hold AMVs over and shorten our event.  When we got our cable and good projector, we showed...
  • The Devil and Daniel Mouse
    • Cute anthropomorphic mice, folk and rock music... AND THE DEVIL!
  • Chuck Jones "Raggedy Ann and Andy - The Pumpkin who Couldn't Smile" 
    • (which was creepier and way more sexually twisted than I was expecting) 
  • REPO in A Minute and Fifteen Seconds
    • Which legitimately summed up everything that is that film in 1:15.
  • Santa's Suprise 
    • (which was way more racist than I was intending)
  • Some Dog Christmas Cartoon 
    • (That had nothing to do with the Holiday besides the setting)
  • Deception of a Generation Part 1 
    • (Scooby Doo is leading children to SATANNNN!!!)
  • Hot Chicks: 
  • Munchers, up till the cavity devil shows up

which led to...
  • Heaven's Gates and Hell's Flames
    • "Slutty f**k and her friend Snorty McCokeSlut" and the Spanish-Wrestler-meets-Gene-Simmons-from-Kiss Devil.
  • Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel
    • The Love Song
    • "No Steam Shovels Wanted"
  • The Relaxed Wife 
  • Half of The Ninja Squad

Glad to meet you guys, to see such a big turnout, and can't wait to see you guys at the next convention we do!

    I never knew Sweatin' to the Oldies could be that much fun.

    What kind of crowd response did you get on the holiday clips?

    It seemed that they enjoyed it. Wish I had more of them.
