I love a good snack to munch on throughout the day. I usually buy Japanese snacks from my local supermarket that has a handful of options. If I’m in Manhattan I would stop by a supermarket in China Town. I also used to order off a Japanese snack website that shut down a year or two ago. Cons are usually when I rack up on snacks. I now use a new website I want to introduce to you all if you wanted to order Japanese Snacks that aren’t around you locally.
It’s already the end of the year and 2018 took a little longer to end. This is also the time of year everything is hectic for everyone with holidays, work and just life in general. We want to wish all of you a Happy Holidays for the many we celebrate this month. Continue reading →
We’re right at the tip of the new year! 2019 is literally a little over a month away and the giving season is in full effect. November celebrates our 3rd year on WordPress, it seems like so long ago we started this blog. We’re many years into SDE but our online presence is 3 years strong and we can only go harder.

On Sunday the last day of Anime NYC, I was able to catch the panel and get some insight from women in the professional gaming field. These ladies turned their love for gaming into a career, I’m extremely proud of them for being able to make a living off of a hobby they’re passionate about. You can work your day job while building your dream at the same time, just remember there are sacrifices to be made. I understood that because this is what I’m personally doing with SDE.

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 →
This weekend at J1-Con we will be hitting the music fest on Saturday to see the 4 music performances lined up. The acts set to perform are Sys2matik Ovrl0ad, Andrea M, Rachael Rota and Reef of Law 27. I’ve never heard any of their music prior to writing this post and I have to say it is a mixed bunch and it’s a mix of music that everyone can enjoy. The performances will be held in The Bourbon Room in The ShowBoat Hotel in Atlantic City, this will be my first time at the ShowBoat hotel and The Bourbon Room and the setup with the seats and stage looks amazing. This venue is attached to the hotel which is a bonus and just from looking at the photo it looks like music sounds great in here, I’m excited to see everyone perform at this venue.
Last weekend was LCAC 2018 and it was a blast! This year we’ve met some new people as well as seeing some new musicians perform. We were given the opportunity to do press coverage again this year and with that, we have a lot of footage and photos to sort through. This year LCAC, in my opinion, was a little lacking compared to the year before. Yes, the con was fun but it didn’t live up to being better than the year before. I really hope LCAC 2019 will pick up the ball next year and be an even better con than this year.
Liberty City Anime Convenion was last weekend and we had the opportunity to do press coverage for the con and it was fun. There was a few places the event was lacking but nothing they can’t improve next time around. We were already prepared to take on the workload and get into crunch mode to push everything out as fast as we can.
This week will be posts for our press coverage of LCAC 2018 and we’re pushing out videos on our YouTube pretty soon and we’re trying to make more content on short notice but our quality is important so that is what’s always holding us back. We have to make time for what we want and we want to be active on YouTube and with all the hard work it takes to stay up with a YouTube Channel we’ve been trying and failing but we’ll keep trying until we get into our groove.
One thing we all need to rememeber is that failures come before success and as we’ve been trying to create a viable media company that can thrive in this and future economy. It’s more work we’ve been prepared for because we know how much goes into starting a business and building a company and brand. We have so much going on that it’s overwhelming and exciting at the same time to be so busy yet so frustrating since our outcome is moving slower than we want. We worked hard for this to even think about giving it up and I hope that gave you a little inspiration to keep pushing through and find that motivation and time to create your dreams and live the best life you can.
Week 10 Spotify Playlist
This week we have another playlist full of our faves and it’s one hell of a mix from K-pop to Hip-Hop. Enjoy 🙂
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 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.
