Anime NYC 2018: Masquerade Ultra Deluxe

Anime NYC Logo

Isn’t the Masquerade everyone’s favorite part of an Anime Convention? It’s where cosplayer’s get to showcase what they poured their hard work and dedication into. Whether be through sewing, knitting, molding and other forms of crafting, I am excited to see it. I also love to see the skits prepared for these events, they are usually- always the funniest way to see some of our favorite characters portrayed.

This year the contestants did not disappoint.

This year at Liberty City Anime Convention (LCAC) everyone discovered that this was the last year and final performance of the band 2une.  This was my first time listening to the band because in the previous years I was never able to make it in time to see the band perform. 2une has been performing together for three years at LCAC and had many great performances. This year for their final show 2une’s Sneko and Uno had a combined performance together with Ari.Ki (Ari and Ki). Ari.Ki are twin dancers that perform their own choreography, I really enjoyed listening to the band and watching the dance performances. Continue reading

Childish Gambino – This is America Music Video is not revolutionary art.

I can’t express how tired I am of seeing black death on my screens. I can’t seem to escape seeing a video of someone killing a Black Person, it’s even shown on the news on replay every hour. I am a Childish Gambino fan and I have to say this music video was disappointing to watch. I listened to the song before watching the video and I liked the song before the video but now I can’t stand to hear it. If you’re on the internet you will end up watching it because everyone is sharing the video, screenshots, memes and think pieces breaking down every meaning of the video. I wonder if it still okay to mention the triggers this video may contain for some people even though it has well over 72 Million views which means there’s a chance you saw the video already and was introduced to the chaotic scenes of death, massacre, suicide and chaos all while black people dance in the foreground.

Big meets bigger: Rampage Movie

Image may contain: 1 person, meme, sky, night, skyscraper, text and outdoor

The Rock has yet another action blockbuster under his belt and it’s a movie about characters from one of our favorite childhood video game Rampage. I got the chance to see a advance screening of the movie earlier this week with Alice and have to say it was a short movie but the action picked up quicker than I thought. Although I have some mixed feelings about the movie not giving the other characters from the game more screentime I did enjoy the movie because of the characters and their witty banter with eachother.
