World Steam Expo: Aegis 2011

In our coverage of the 2011 World Steam Expo, Star and I came to a room that had some interesting stuff going on.  We went in and talked to the different workers who ran this room.  Personally, my favorite thing in the room was the knife throwing.  Check out our video here to find out what other cool stuff this group does at the event.

Convention Guide Part 2

This is a guide of how I handle conventions.  This is not saying it’s the right away to go around conventions as everyone enjoys conventions for different reasons.  Though my reasons for creating my own little guide is to get to see and meet guests, hang out with friends, and learn as much as I can with spending as little as possible.

Part 2: Planning your weekend

When going to a convention it’s important to note that there are many different type of convention goers, there are the buyers and sellers, the cosplayers and artists, the panelist and staffers.  So once going in I usualy want to know just what it is that I am there for.  Going over a schedule with a highlighter usually helps.  Sometimes a convention will have this posted on their website in advance, though most of the time they don’t.

Part 1: Deciding on going to the Event.

Whenever I start planning my trips I first search up all the events I can for guests that I have not met, or have made friends with and would like to see again.  After I get the events listed out I look at it in terms of which conventions would be affordable for me.  Usually conventions within a 13 to 16 hour driving distance wins me over the fastest, since I can get there cheaper than going to a convention across country.  After I narrow it down to the realistic list of conventions I could try and make it to, I list those conventions on the TMNT-L forums.

Making of Cowabunga Corner Season 3

Cowabunga Corner Season 3 was a total blast to make!  I cannot thank everyone enough for all the time they put into it.  This season was the first time where we had almost as many interviews as we did reviews, which did really surprise me as that was not something I thought was going to ever happen.
