That Time I Stopped Blogging & Went to 4 Conventions in 6 Weeks.

Hello dorkness, my old friend… Apologies abound for the lengthy sound of silence.  Truly and sincerely.  The thing is, when you live life in the “geek” industry, unplanned elements are always the plan.  When I started the day to day blogging regiment after my 42nd birthday, I always knew the...

That Time I Named & Co-Founded an Anime Convention Conference Four Years Ago

From the original press release: (Los Angeles, February 7, 2012) Project Anime (www.projectanime.org) is a multi-day conference designed to connect promoters of fan conventions (and fan conventions that feature anime) with distribution companies, vendors, and each other for the purpose of “adding fuel to the fandom.” The event, presented by...

The Ever Expanding World of Green Mustard Entertainment

I spent tonight cleaning up a Facebook page that was created to differentiate Green Mustard Entertainment from Wasabi Anime because each now serves a distinctly different function.  It’s odd, though, because the new structure turns the parent into the child (similar to how JACON became more relevant than JACO back...

The Progression of Project Anime. 0

The Progression of Project Anime.

I’m still getting caught up from being in Japan last week, but I figured I’d better address something that happened right before I left the country since (you know) if it’s on the Internet it MUST be true, right? Last year, Wasabi Anime® (Green Mustard Entertainment, Inc.) added two new...

PUBLIC NOTICE: I’ll be off “the grid” until Monday night.

This weekend was great.  I managed to catch up on a LOT of missed sleep.  The batteries are recharged, and tomorrow is my first day 100% mentally back in the post-Japan real world. Monday day will be spent doing the day job.  Monday night I’ve got the following things of...

Japan Day 3: Akihabara aka “Geek Heaven in Japan” 3

Japan Day 3: Akihabara aka “Geek Heaven in Japan”

Our adventure in Akihabara continued after the Maid Cafe as we further explored the area.  While perusing the shops full of anime, manga, electronics, and toys we came upon a prime example of the Japanese fascination with certain elements of American culture.  In this case, Kentucy Fried Chicken.  Have you...

Disneyland + “Gir” + Anime Expo (aka I have a pretty odd life.) 0

Disneyland + “Gir” + Anime Expo (aka I have a pretty odd life.)

First off: I get on a plane for Tokyo in five days.  Expect a slew of blog posts once that kicks off. Secondly: This blog has been slow lately due to being extremely busy with things like, say, planning to go to Tokyo. Gomen’nasai. What that in mind, some pretty...

Countdown to Tokyo, Japan: 30 Days 0

Countdown to Tokyo, Japan: 30 Days

Did you know that I have a blog?  True story.  I started blogging in 2003 with no particular purpose in mind.  I just liked the idea of writing for the sake of writing.  Ars gratia artis and all the jazz.  I figured the only folks who were reading were a...

It’s Saturday. It’s #GenCon & (bonus!) some @ManvFood love. Also: Check out @TentacleChris & @CosplayDeviants!

Yesterday was a whirlwind of a day.  Going on an obvious lack of sleep from the hotel situation the night before, I pressed on with the help of Starbucks and 5 Hour Energy shots.  The photo above is one of the last things I remember before heading to my room...

The morning after; Back at the Westin; Welcome to the #GenCon Anime Track!

The photo in this post was taken from my current point of view this morning: the Wasabi Anime table at the Westin overlooking the anime events track. Yes, we made it back to the Westin after last night’s adventure. After my late evening (early morning) blog post, the @StarwoodBuzz Twitter...

So @BotCon aka “#BotFAIL” showed up on my radar again today. How long have they been doing cons? 1

So @BotCon aka “#BotFAIL” showed up on my radar again today. How long have they been doing cons?

Everyone makes mistakes. Wasabi Anime (Green Mustard Entertainment) has been designing and hosting conventions and events since 2001.  In that time we’ve had our fair share of “oops” moments.  You’d think, though, that the “professionals” would be a little more polished than us at this point.  You see, when you...
