Florida Anime Experience 2011 DOOM Playlist

The Florida Anime Experience was conceived from the start to be a low-key affair and was planned accordingly. The event was a success, exceedingly attendance estimates by virtue of the fact that quite a few of us poor schmucks in Florida can't easily get to any of the major anime conventions being held in North America that weekend. For cons of this scale, most attendance is on Saturday only...and so with that in mind I scheduled my Panel OF DOOM! for 10:00 PM on Friday. They gave me the Main Events room, and while I didn't fill the grand ballroom to capacity like the various Anime Hells that occurred Memorial Day weekend, part of that was because the total convention attendance for that time wouldn't have filled the room anyway. I was perfectly satisfied with my turnout. Setup was a breeze and all the tech ran flawlessly; the show started at 10:00 PM on the dot (after leading in with some vintage Sailor Moon toy commercials) and ended right at midnight, just as scheduled. This despite the lead-in being a cosplay-related "American Idol"-style contest!
