When the Wattersons each want to watch a TV show at 8:00 PM, a mad race begins to claim the TV remote as quickly as possible in order to secure viewing rights. However, Richard’s decision to hide the remote – which is then lost – soon complicates things. I was somewhat cautious going into the […]

Movie-Based Animated Programs: Hope For The Future?

by on August 6, 2012
I have long been a proponent of movie-based animated programs. Perhaps I am unusual in that regard, but if I like a movie, I would like to see as much of its world as possible. Sure, it might not be as excellently portrayed on a TV budget, but at least you get to see its […]

Otakon 2012: In the End It Really Does Matter

by Weathermanon August 3, 2012
At last, we come to it, the end. Another Otakon gone by, another summer convention season drawing to a close. Not that Otakon closes slowly by any means. There was still a packed full dealer’s..well, room isn’t really appropriate. It’s more of a packed dealer’s hall that happens to be larger than a couple of […]

Otakon 2012: Saturday Night’s Alright for Conning

by Weathermanon August 1, 2012
So it was less of a meltdown by Saturday and more a mass of swirling people, costumes, and odors. Seriously folks: deodorant, showers and fresh clothing are your friends. Compared to Friday it was cooler, but we’re not talking a massive cooldown here. More of “well, it’s not almost 100…..*flump*”. Thankfully it was possible to […]

By 10 PM the air had the relative quality of lead, and it wasn’t helped much by the smoke from the Orioles’ fireworks show hanging in the air. Otakon Friday generally […]

2nd Impressions of Otakon 2012

by Weathermanon July 27, 2012
It’s still hot. In fact, it’s hotter. Sweltering in fact. Yeah yeah, Otakon used to always be like this, but it’s been a little rare the last few runs, so a return run isn’t exactly wanted. Neither is rain, but so far it’s been dry in that regard. I feel quite sorry for all the […]

First Impressions of Otakon 2012

by Weathermanon July 27, 2012
It’s hot. Holy cow it is HOT! Even by our summer standards, it’s hot out and in here. Add in the overflow level crowds already and, well, it’s Otakon. I suppose expecting something else would be naive and heaven knows I haven’t been naive in 15 years, but still, this weather was supposed to have […]
