With 2021 bringing back larger conventions again, Dustin and Jonn talk about their experiences with Anime Weekend Atlanta and Phoenix Toy Con.
(0:00 – 1:08:28) Convention Reports 2021: Jonn hits the ground running with what he did at Phoenix Toy Con the same time Dustin was at Anime Weekend Atlanta. While Jonn was getting great stuff like Bloodstained on the Nintendo Switch and other great comic goodies, Dustin was getting his moment in the spotlight with a grand AMV win at the VAT Exposition contest along with an award at Youmacon AMV Contest all at the same time. Both get into topics about Marvel films, Covid guidelines between the two conventions, things we bought and #LetsGoBrandon. Dustin goes extensively on how his Initial D and B.A.D. panels went, navigating the horrendous Atlanta 285 construction/World Series traffic, meeting industry peeps like Carl Horn, picking up import games of such anime series at random, sleeping at different places with different peoples cats, reading off crappy Evangelion poetry, playing Initial D Zero in the arcade, seeing Tiffany Grant again, Anitubers who rant against AWA because of questionable panels, and much more!
(1:08:28 – 1:59:39) Closing Remarks (i.e. more Chris “Jebuzz Sanix blu hart” Chan prison letters) – This is really self explanatory, this is how we spent our time Reading. These. Letters. Anything with other politics was very brief.

Now you can enjoy listening to them at your lame New Years Eve party or getting over a hangover on New Years Day!
(0:00 – 1:59:20) ACT 1 – Our Gaming Episode that didn’t make it out in time for ThanksGaming – The excuse for our ThanksGaming and not having one was reasons of not having the time to do it. But hey, Dustin and Jonn talk about a plethora of games that came out in 2020 like Cyberpunk 2077, Mario 3D All Stars, Star Wars Squadrons, Final Fantasy 7 Remake and a few others. This also includes side banter and closing remarks talk of Peter Fay tweets, surviving Atlanta the night Biden got elected on the news, election results talk, Baked Alaska arrest and the world around streams and the IP2 community, RIP Shoutouts to Alex Trebek, Sean Connery to name a few that have passed away, and much more!
(1:59:20 – 3:42:22) ACT 2 – Our annual Star Wars something review of The Mandalorian Season 2 – Because of the entertainment empire of Disney and their golden calf of Star Wars titles to make, Dustin and Jonn go over the Mandalorian series and hit up more on the Star Wars universe.

(3:42:22 – 5:47:42) FINAL ACT – A somewhat review of Wonder Woman 84 with a platter of a bunch of nerd ramblings – Dustin, Jonn and Daft come on the mic to give their thoughts on the latest Wonder Woman film, but in reality like 30 or so minutes was spent talking about that movie while they would rather talk about anything and everything else that sidetracked the conversation. Included in this dish is sports talk, live action shows we were watching, Jonn and Daft trash on Looney Tunes Rabbit Run, how the 80’s have warn out its welcome in media, 90’s nostalgia, cartoon remake talks, comics, how it is watching Marvel films with your parents, the Christmas gifts we got this year, Daft explains Section 230 to Dustin, and much more!

Instead of doing three bite sized episodes for the listener, we’re gonna cram everything we recorded into one super deluxe crap-of-o-combo podcast for our listeners which involves reviews of the CoronaVirus, Chuck E. Cheese in the Galaxy 5000, Dirty Harry and Death Wish films.
(0:00 – 2:21:54) Act One: The George Floyd Arc – This was recorded in early June and it involves the thoughts of Dustin, Daft and Jonn giving commentary about the American social riots over the death of George Floyd and the CoronaVirus outbreak at that time.

(2:21:54 – 4:24:15) Act Two: It’s all Funi Games at Chuck E. Cheese – We count this review of Chuck E Cheese In the Galaxy 5000 as an anime review for the sole purpose that it came from Funimation at the end of the 20th century, before the rat got replaced by Goku as the company cash cow. Before any of that happens, Dustin and Daft have a bit of backstory behind the animatronic adventures of Rock A Fire, how needless it is to have Weather Awareness, more covid talk, Dustin getting a SNK MVSX, arcade talk, Dustin tells his (non) heart wrenching story of being a Covid Survivor, the end of an Unknown Hinsin, Kluspo cartoons talk, discussions on Adult Swim shows and politics, Ralph Retort sex tape debacle and Ghost response to that, and much more in store!

So since everything con related is closed forever in 2020, let’s talk about the cons that Dustin and Cloud went too that happened last year that some have been sitting on the backburner for over a year at this point. This also marks our 150th episode!
(0:00 – 1:05:00) Animazement 2019 Review – This is one of many cons that didn’t and wasn’t going to happen this year, but hey its ok, you can hear about the fun time Dustin had 14 months ago. This includes Dustin being on the AnimEigo panel thanks to Robert Woodhead, meeting industry vets like Evan Jones, the best panel done by Phil Lee, con security talk, stories involving sketchy post offices in the middle of South Carolina, trash talking Universal Studios according to Josh Fairhurst, the yearly entertainment of street preacher vs. convention attendees, us being wrong about Macross license rights, and plenty more!
(1:05:00 – 1:21:15) Closing Remarks Part A – Who cares about old news from a year ago? No really, who would care? Probably no one, but oh well. It’s nothing special regarding outdated info on Chris Chan, the Ghost Show and Brexit in case anyone wants to listen or not.
(1:21:15 – 2:35:15) Anime Weekend Atlanta 2019 Review – This con was what, end of 2019 roughly, so its not too old to listen too. Dustin spins his tales of hosting badass panels, how the AWA app sucked ass, bad parents who let their kids see Descendants of Darkness, people dressed up like Antifa who scare children at panels, pissing off the ATL police MONTHS before people decided to riot in the streets to piss them off, meeting the @Blacotaku1 himself and getting cool mix VHS tapes, RIP John Witherspoon, trying to get your AMV to play at the con, and much more.
(2:35:15 – 2:44:40) Closing Remarks Part B – Old news for people who wouldn’t care regarding the DNC race in 2019, Dustin colabs with Bmar on a Ghost Trolling video, bad Bob Haney Batman comics, and Ghost talk in general.
(2:44:40 – 3:37:56) New York Anime Fest 2019 Review – This is our report from our silent contributor Cloud who went to this years New York Anime Fest. Before we dive into any con report, Dustin will cast grievance against Tom Styer for performing like crap in South Carolina DNC race.

Sorry for the delay on getting out an episode, but after our hiatus in July, we are back with us talking about Anime Boston and Avengers: Endgame.
(0:00 – 1:12:20) Con Talk: Anime Boston 2019 – The excuse Dustin is going to give for nothing coming out for about two months is the fact that summer was busy for him to not sit down and edit something together, but that doesn’t mean we had nothing recorded. Here we have our recording from Cinco De Mayo to kick off our discussion about Anime Boston from audience member Cloud and his time at Anime Boston again. This includes talk about the new City Hunter movie, him going to panels, Steven Universe talk, people who get overly offended at conventions to complain about them on forums and much more.
(1:12:20 – 1:59:00) Avengers: Endgame Review – Seeing how this film has topped James Cameron Avatar for bestest biggest blockbuster spectacular film ever made, Jonn and Dustin go into the film and spoil things about it if you haven’t seen it yet, but that was over 3 months ago so you listener should’ve seen it by now.
(1:59:00 – 02:12:48) Closing Remarks – This one is pretty light but enough to garner some discussion on lowcows like Ghost and Chris Chan, our thoughts on that wonderful “just-came-out-of-a-time-machine-and-must-be-sent-back-to-1993” Sonic live action film, and some other interests to talk about per usual.
This show has:
