This idealy was supposed to come out before Christmas, then on Christmas Day maybe, but none of that happened. Dustin Christmas weekend was a s***show day to say the least. Our real Christmas special will come out on the next episode, which in turn is really our 10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY of doing this. 10 years of failed promises, broken dreams, lowered expectations, and somewhere in the middle of that is a review of Japanese cartoons somewhat. This time its a con report from the end of October at Atlanta, so enjoy that!
(0:00 – 1:36:45) Con Report: Anime Weekend Atlanta 2022 – Chalk it up to laziness and loss time that back to back episode releases are just more con reports, but we’ll get it right for the next one im certain! Dustin comes back to regail his tale of the major anime con in Atlanta for our listeners. This gets into his invovlement in doing AMV stuff with AMV people, winning awards at AWA, settling some issues with people, Jonn discusses what he did that same weekend that wasn’t at UwUCon, crime and drugs in our local major cities, the haters on Twitter, what we got at the cons, how Dustin is now officially an uncle, Dustin impressions with seeing the latest Mobile Suit Gundam: Cucuruz Doan movie in theaters since the last time he saw a Gundam film in theaters (which was Char’s Counterattack), a quick overlook at 801 T.T.S Airbats anime, Cardcaptors en espanol, how Gundam is seriouz buzinezz!, first impressions of the latest Gundam Witch from Mercury series, what panels Dustin did at AWA this year, Discotek future releases were looking forward too, the Legacy of VegettoEX, passing out in room parties on a Saturday night, get buried in KISS merch, how AWA has a line and drinking problem, and much more!
(1:36:45 – 2:06:05) Closing Remarks – Not too much to say other than addressing a few things from months ago that isn’t a big issue until we bring it up again to light. This includes our quick thoughts on the American mid-Term elections since this was recorded before Nov. 8th, Responding to a Gatomatt Video, the Return of Brick, Elon early reign on Twitter as of last month, 90’s fads, and a few more things to boot!

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.

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.

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!
(4:24:15 – 5:25:34) Act Three: The Death Wish’s of a Dirty Harry – Jonn and Dustin give their impressions on an overview of the Dirty Harry and Death Wish films, all the while talking about police procedures and politics behind them. This includes Dustin rant on BLM politics with Christianity, DNC talk, forgetting Teri Hatcher name from Lois and Clark, Dustin watching V: The Series and Star Fleet and much more!

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.

(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.

(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.
