Anime Oasis anyone?  
Anime Los Angeles was a blast. I danced with nolly for almost two hours! My AMV didn't win, but at least the one I voted for one (it blew the others away). I was able to do my panels without freezing up. I was invited to be on panels again next year! Thanks, Chaz, for the great first year of a convention to watch. Now then...

So, Anime Oasis is March 25-27. I'm entering the AMV contest. My friend MastressAlita is trying to fill her hotel room to help cut costs... so far that makes two of us in the room, with a total cost of $136 for the room for the weekend.

If at least one of you comes along, I can drive up there to cut travel and hotel costs. If not, I'll probably get a flight. The con is in Boise, Idaho, but it has these advantages:

Only a 10.5 hour drive from San Jose (10 hours from Hayward).
AMV Contest Friday at 6pm: Experience a whole crowd of people watching "Ai Ai Baby."
Crazy cosplay events: Swimsuit contest, 18+ unrestriced cosplay with $200 cash prize, standard stage cosplay, sleepwear cosplay, cosplay cooking contest.
Yaoi night
Idaho's special brand of crazy fun.

Please let me know within a few days if you can and want to go! Thank you.

Sorry love, but Boise is not my idea of fun... I'm glad to hear that your panel went well. :-)

My AMV didn't win
Which AMV did you enter into the contest?

but at least the one I voted for one (it blew the others away).
Can I download that one somewhere? I'm curious now...

Let me know if you don't have a membership, and I can just send it to you. The contest discussion and the six entries:

I saw the table of votes. The second highest got 10 votes... all the others got single digits. The winner got 50 votes. I think I had 7. One of my friends commented that they showed them from worst to best, which wouldn't be that far off (and would put mine about second best, heehee).

I don't have a membership. :)

Ouch.

I think I had 7.
Well, that's not too bad, I guess. It might have to do with the video itself: it's pretty depressing (at least that's what I think), maybe you would have made a better chance with Ai Ai Baby. :)

I'm hoping so. Seeing "Mayu" next to the others, in front of a crowd, made me think a few parts were lacking too. I'll keep moving forward. :)

Sending the winner now. In case you're interested, an account on animemusicvideos.org is free, and you can start actually downloading after two weeks, unless you donate, heh.

I see lots of AMV awards in your future... ;)

OK, I feel bad making you do all the hard work now. So I signed up for an account. :)
