Sam & Bill is a comedy music duo that I’ve never heard of until I checked out the Liberty City Anime Con guest list and came across Sam & Bill. I watched a few videos and honestly this has to be an 18+ event at LCAC, just off the comedy videos they have on their youtube. This will be a first for me to sit in a comedy music act with this type of content and judging from the videos they are pretty funny. Sam & Bill remind me of Lonely Island, it’s a similar concept on the music part but completely different which makes me want to check them out. I love Lonely Island and I’m pretty interested now to check Sam & Bill out and see what they will do for LCAC. Continue reading
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 Jay Park’s long-awaited Roc Nation Debut EP and I have to say it’s better than I thought it would be. I’m actually surprised I like every song on this EP which isn’t something that happens often enough with albums I listen to. Jay Park really brought his A+++ game with this project from the beats to the features this EP is a great way to introduce new people to Jay Park and expand his fan base further.
This week will be a little eventful for us before our next con adventure hits and we’ll be going to see The Lox and Young MA in concert in Coney Island. It’s a free concert sponsored by City Parks Foundation. There is a series of free events City Park Foundation does every summer in New York and each year it gets better and more creative with some of the events and concerts. This is how we saw Janelle Monae in concert and many others.
Incredibles 2 Spoilers!!!
This has been so long overdue that we’ve literally waited 14 years for part 2 to come out and it was worth the wait. Now before I get into this if you plan on seeing the movie anytime soon, if you have a history of epilepsy or light-induced seizures be aware that this movie does have a few scenes that have intense strobe lights and for minutes at a time. I wasn’t aware of this and I don’t have a history of epilepsy or light-induced seizures but I am prone to getting really bad migraines when exposed to intense flashing lights.
As the AnimeNEXT festivities continued on we took a break and sat in this Diversity panel hosted by The Panel Sisters. There were so many panels on diversity at this con this year I was so proud to see everyone get to express themselves and find others that identify with them. Diversity is necessary in all sorts of media and I’m excited to see what creators of new anime and manga will come up with after seeing fans call for more diversity.
I went into a time capsule panel that brought back some great childhood memories, I was surprised to learn that Toonami has been around for 20 years already. I remember growing up running out of school to watch anime on Toonami when they used to broadcast in the afternoon. Over the years I have seen many great dubbed anime series on Toonami, some of my favorite shows is Gundam Wing, Sailor Moon, Yuyu Hakusho, Inuyasha, Dragon Ball Z, and many more. Toonami has changed over the years, as well as T.O.M. everyone’s favorite robot host and mascot of Toonami.
