This weekend in NYC Liberty City Anime Convention will be taking place in Times Square and it will be jammed packed with tourists, new yorkers, and my personal favorite cosplayers. As we set into the weekend this week we have posts lined up for our press coverage of LCAC. The team has been preparing and working hard deciding on what to cover and the heat and possible thunderstorms happening this weekend. LCAC will be held in the Marriott Marquis Times Square same hotel as last year and I’m going to assume the main events will be held in the Edison Ballroom as last year since everything worked out perfectly space wise.
This week will be a little eventful for us before our next con adventure hits and we’ll be going to see The Lox and Young MA in concert in Coney Island. It’s a free concert sponsored by City Parks Foundation. There is a series of free events City Park Foundation does every summer in New York and each year it gets better and more creative with some of the events and concerts. This is how we saw Janelle Monae in concert and many others.
Another Soulcial Sunday another Bi-weekly playlist! This week has been a bit slow for us as we rest up and prepare for the upcoming cons we will be visiting and content we’re trying to put out. We’ve been trying to be more active with our YouTube channel and create a workflow that will work for us but it’s a bit of an issue with our busy schedules so we will figure that out so there will a visual aspect of SDE.
These past two weeks have been a real one for us pumping out everything as fast as we can and having to work our 9 to 5 and I’m happy we’ve got almost everything out. There’s still more content needed to be edited and published which we’ll get to finish all this week. We’ve been prepping for other cons we want to hit throughout the year and the next one we hope to hit is Women In Comics Con on June 30th at The Brooklyn Public Library on Grand Army Plaza in Brooklyn, NY. We went to one of the WINC events when it was held in Harlem and we had fun and spent money on merchandise created by people of color. If you’re interested the tickets are free and it’s always something to do at this convention between panels and meeting people. Continue reading
This is the last day of AnimeNEXT and it’s really been a blast we have so much content to push out that we hope you guys think about coming out to Atlantic City for next year’s AnimeNEXT. This weekend has been a never-ending fun filled con full of cosplayers, events, and games. I’ve said this before there is so much space the elbow room is so amazing and AnimeNEXT always has something going on so finding things to do is an easy part but this year felt like there were so many choices that picking where to go will be the hardest part.
This past weekend we visited Castle Point Anime Convention for the first time in years and they have really come a long way from being on a college campus to an expo center. We posted what we had on out Instagram and other social media accounts so check it out. In a week we’ll be at AnimeNEXT and we’re super excited it was so much fun last year so we have high expectations for this year. I believe the most exciting thing about this con is all the events happening and all the elbow room that The Atlantic City Convention Center offers is what other cons dream of!
Happy Mother’s Day to all the good mothers out there handling their business doing what mothers do. None of us are mothers but we see how hard mothers work to provide for their family and make sure everything is done. Motherhood is a thankless job that sometimes goes unnoticed but I want every mother knows you’re are appreciated every day.
Here’s a little laugh from our IG paying homage to Outkast for this oldie but goodie.
