What is Tephlon Funk! Exactly?
A comic book series by Stephane Metayer which follows a young girl from Queensbridge Houses, Inez Joselyn, as her life is turned upside down. Along the way, Inez encounters an interesting cast of characters from throughout the Five Boroughs of New York City. Stylistically speaking, Tephlon is heavily influenced by anime and Hip Hop Culture; respectively.

The three character tag challenge has been floating around the internet for a while now. And as usual, I am late to the party but don’t fret my friends. In the words of Korean American singer Jay Park, I got this. All jokes aside, I was inspired to take a crack at it after reading Aria Cross’ own attempt. That was back in June, and I am just now getting around to it.
Challenge: Pick three anime characters that remind you of yourself and tag people to participate. For the sake of the post, I will elaborate on why these characters are reflective of my personality.
I got my Samsung Galaxy S8 back in April after it was released and I did the big switch from Sprint to T-Mobile to get this phone. After using the phone for the past 6 months I got some things to get off my chest and let Samsung know how I feel about this phone. As a Samsung Fangirl I really expected more from Samsung as much as they hyped up this phone before the launch. I do love my phone regardless of what I dislike I did pay for this bad boy so it holds a special place in my heart since phone companies make you pay the retail price of the phone so all $900 of this phone made me love it like no other.

The J-MUSIC Ensemble is an 8 piece band consisting of drums, keyboard, bass, guitar and a horn section with two trumpets, a trombone, and saxophone. Best described through their slogan: Jazz meets J-Pop. Which essentially, is what they do. Think-polished Jazz musicians, tackling Japanese Popular Music with the horns taking the fore front, at times standing in as substitution for the human voice. Though at times, the human voice is still included because there is nothing quite like it. Overall, bringing a new perspective to the world of Japanese Music.
Professor Shyguy is well known for his 8 bit- music, soulful, electro-rocking, theatrical nerd pop music. Most of his songs stem from video games, anime, and time and space. I missed the concert last year and was able to see his performance this year. I came in thier not knowing what type of music I was going to listen to. I thought it was another rock concert but I was wrong. Professor Shyguy really surprised me, he was really good.
Over the years the anime opening and closing theme songs have changed. When I heard some of the songs, I had a complete flashback to my childhood. Some series changed their lyrics completely and others used a translated version of the song.
Soulcial Dreamin’ Entertainment was invited to attend Liberty City Anime Convention in New York at the Marriott Marquis hotel. The hosting space was so much bigger this year compared to last. They even extended it to another site, the Edison Ballroom, where the main events (Masquerade) and the concerts were held. At night they hosted anime dance parties headed by Rabbit Revolution. This year the convention had plenty of panels, video games, voice actors, concerts and anime screenings. We were able to get an insider’s view of the convention while having a great time.
We’re back from our long weekend at Liberty City Anime Con in Times Square. It was so much fun this year around that we got to actually go to more events and panels this time. We have a lot to put up this week so look out for our new posts, videos and photos from this past weekend. This year was much better than last and I’m happy to see LCAC stepping up their game this time.
Next year dates are already set for August 17 – 19, 2018. The live concerts this year were just as great as they were the year before, hopefully a new lineup of events so we can get more variety at this con next time around.
Once again we will have new content coming this week and we’ll be sure to let you guys know. Thank You for supporting us and helping us get this far.
