This is probably the 1000th post about this topic that has appeared on the internet. I have big issues with what Pixar, a branch of Disney has done with Tiana, our favorite and only Black Princess. Colorism and whitewashing is always a controversial topic because so many people feel offended on both sides. Colorism in itself is a conversation a lot of people are not ready to have because they don’t want to face the reality and the history that makes up our media and society today.
Soulcial Dreamin’ Entertainment attended New York Comic Convention (NYCC) at the Jacob K. Javits Center. This year NYCC collaborated together with Anime Expo to create Anime Fest, a new convention that was located at Pier 94. Continue reading →
Last weekend was NYCC and AFNYCC (Anime Fest), So that’s 2 cons in one weekend and Alice was the braveheart to go to both from Thursday – Sunday. New York Comic Con wanted to bring back Anime Fest and they did. Lizzo and I only did 1 day at NYCC, we didn’t want to go for an extra day because we both felt like NYCC was becoming too commercial. We usually don’t always agree but that was one that we did and all three of us might not go to NYCC next year because it’s too expensive to buy single passes!
Alice has a few posts about NYCC and AFNYCC coming out this week, it felt like we took a week off last week but work and other things caught up with us because we’ve been putting in so much work with SDE other parts of our lives were getting jealous lol. We enjoy going to conventions to see and meet new people as well as hang with friends but NYCC will most likely not be on our list of cons next year because we do miss the weekend bundle pass and it’s much cheaper to hit the other cons that are just as fun.
Our next convention will be Anime NYC and we’ll be doing press coverage there and we’re super excited about it. Hopefully, Anime NYC fixed their security issues from last year but regardless I will be carrying a smaller camera bag just in case they haven’t. If you don’t remember last years’ Anime NYC or didn’t get the chance to go here’s last year’s Anime NYC Overview.
This is week 13 of our Spotify Playlist and as usual, we hope to be your music plug and introduce you to new artists and new favorite songs.
This year will be the first year of a new anime convention in New York, the Anime Fest (which is collaborative venture between NYCC and Anime Expo ). In years prior, there was a separate anime convention that was hosted with New York Comic Con but, over the years they fused together and became one convention that enveloped the entire Jacob Javits Center.
This year attendees have the option to purchase tickets to Anime Fest and/or New York Comic Con but the conventions this year will be held in two different locations. I will be attending both conventions, this year and I can not wait to experience what both conventions have to offer.
WHEW! It’s been a busy couple of weeks for us but we made it through and got our content out and now we’re going to start up early for our press coverage of AnimeNYC in November. This will be the last con of the year for us and we’ll start gearing up for 2019. Continue reading →
The Flashbang panel was hosted by Rorie Still, the author behind Flashbang: Sci-Fi Stories That Will Blow Your Mind! It’s a compilation of six short stories, two poems, and three soundtracks. Ranging from comedy to somber tales. In each story, the characters are all searching for something and this is was what links them together. Continue reading →
