This year J-MUSIC Ensemble performs at LCAC again! We loved their performance the last 2 years and they’ll be gracing the main stage again. The live music they provide is one of the best qualities to their performances as well as the renditions anime and game theme songs we’ve grown up on. The nostalgia makes me love seeing J-MUSIC Ensemble perform. J-MUSIC Ensemble hits the stage Sunday, August 19th at 2:30pm, the last music performance right before the closing ceremony.

We’ve been blessed again with another gift and that is The Black Panther Album. The album had high anticipation since it was announced that Kendrick Lamar was producing it with Anthony Tiffith. I have to say this album really did meet expectations after listening to it a few times. With the growing momentum around the Black Panther movie, I’m pretty sure there is going to be negative reactions towards this album because of the artists on the album but overall it turned out better than I expected it to. The album has great replay value and introduced me to a few new artists I’ve never heard before. Continue reading
We’ve made it another year! This year has been one of our best years with all the content we were able to get out and all the adventures we had at every convention we were able to attend thru out the year. Our year was full of fun, hard work and we’re happy to welcome a new year with all of you.
Anime NYC was this past weekend and first, we want to give a huge shoutout to Anime Girls NYC. Meeting Stephanie was awesome since we talk back and forth on WordPress often, we actually unknowingly met at the checkpoint as I was complaining about taking off my backpack again to get in on the show floor after coming from the Artist Alley and she turned around and agreed. It was a funny first meeting before we met on the show floor and officially introduced ourselves to each other. Check out her blog and her review of Anime NYC here.
What is Tephlon Funk! Exactly?

Long awaited third album from Bruno mars has finally hit stores and Bruno has never let us down and with this album he took it to the next level. I was waiting for an album after Bruno dropped his single “24k Magic” in October, I didn’t expect it to become my favorite album of the year. I’m a huge fan of Bruno’s since R&B is my favorite genre of all time and when I first listened to this album I was so blown away by how creative and fun this album is just a few songs in.
This movie has been out for 3 weeks now and I’m just seeing it after all the hype has died down and I have to say I did enjoy the parts where Black Panther made it on screen. All the fighting scenes we’re the best parts other than that the story didn’t really do anything for me because it literally took this long for someone to FINALLY call out superheros for destroying cities and killing innocent civilians. That was long overdue, it should have been said long ago. Continue reading
