It’s Black History Month, There are some pretty interesting things popping off in the nerd community. One of my favorite highlights is, the 28 Days of Black Cosplay, which is celebration created by Chaka Cumberbatch-Tinsley five years ago. And since then, the number of participants have grown tremendously.
Two years ago, I wrote a post about my love of ost. For those who are unfamiliar with the term, OST stands for Original Soundtrack. This post entailed what I loved about them and then extended to some of my favorite themes from anime. This got me thinking if I had to compile a list of my favorite soundtrack now, would it be any different.
Another thing I find myself talking about often is my love for cosplay. I am a firm believer, that cosplay is for everyone. We as a community should celebrate that because we have that in common. So in conjunction with the 12 Days of Anime I would like to take the time to share some of my favorites up and coming Cos-Stars.

As always, I’m late to the party but the new DLC roster for Tekken 7 has fallen into my lap and I’m hyped as a motherfucker- I repeat hyped as a motherfucka. Tekken is one of my favorite gaming franchises and has been since I first laid my hands on Tekken 3 back early 2000’s.
Crunchyroll has used their industry connections to the fullest. Anime NYC is only in its second year and its list of guests is stacked. As a person who is fascinated with sound, this is something that has caught my interest. There an even a point in my life where I wanted to pursue voice over as a career. These folks have my utmost love and respect.
This list was pretty long so I divided it into two. Welcome to part one.
the Blackfinity Gauntlet Podcasting Summit spanned over two days of the con. The Expo was hosted in The Bourbon Room, formerly known as the House of Blues which is located on the Second Floor of The Showboat Hotel. The House of Blues is an iconic venue, so being able to take in an event in such a historical place made it that much more memorable and the energy was definitely in the air.
