Anime Expo 2010

A very late post, but I’ll be going to Anime Expo this year.

I’ll be helping out at the Hen Da Ne booth on and off in the dealer’s hall throughout the convention, so feel free to ask for me. I’ll also be trying to sign up for the karaoke contest since I last minutedly decided to compete, haha.

If not that, I’ll be hanging around the karaoke room in the Westin from time to time.

There’s also a Touhou Gathering that I will be attending!

See you guys there!!

Super Idol Follow-up

I didn’t make it to the next round, but that’s okay! I feel pretty content, though just a bit tired as the event took quite a long time. Someone I met made it through, so I am glad for her! She did really well. In fact, she was at the top of the rankings of scores of the top 25. Some people who made it were not there in person, though, so I thought that was weird.

It really is too bad that in these kinds of contests, they don’t give you any real feedback so you really don’t know what to do better next time, but that’s okay. I think I should properly send out auditions instead. These kinds of contests aren’t quite my thing.

In the long run, it was a lot of fun.

Hey, so, does the Japanese community have these kinds of things as well over in California, I wonder? That would be neat, though I never hear about it.

I also got free stuff (dumpling soy sauce, a jar of something, a bottle of tea, and a free shirt..), and also grabbed a free shirt that was being thrown. New pajamas, I guess? Haha. I have 2-3 other bottles of tea from this event, seriously… omnomnom.

Also, I wish everyone in the top 26 luck in making it to Taiwan!!!

HTTV USA’s Super Idol Competition (semifinals)

So, uh, on Sunday I did the audition for this competition, which gives the winner a recording contract in Taiwan.

So.. uhm.. I made it into HTTV USA’s SuperIdol Competition’s semifinals round! I totally thought I didn’t make it in because only one judge said anything. I did a Japanese song but I wonder if I should sing in English or Chinese this coming round. No clue.. but I need to be on my toes for sure this time.

It’s another a capella round but for at least 3 minutes a person, haha.. Gosh, I’m excited.

Apparently the finalist that get voted most popular online gets an iPhone so I will post about that, too, if I make it. Finals are the day right after Semifinals.. Geeeh.

If there are those of you in the Southern California area that I know, the Semifinals allows people to bring signs and boards to support the competitors. Feel free to come and watch! But yes, the Semifinals are at a the Chinese Cultural Center in El Monte, California. (??????: 9443 Telstar Ave. El Monte CA 91731)

The competition starts at 10:00am, though I have to be there earlier for check-in.

Please let me know if you can make it and I’ll figure it out ( I hope)! I don’t want to be there alone like I had been during auditions, haha. I’m contestant #232, though there are only 100 competitors for this round.

For those of you who can’t make it, I believe HTTV USA will broadcast it at some point on channel 62.2. I don’t know when it will be aired, though…

Hope I can do it!
