TonyoTV and Depression

I’ll be on BlogTV tonight (Tuesday 25th May) from 7pm GMT.  It’s my last camstream before the Expo, so we can have a group chat and see if we’re prepared enough.  I think this will be handy to remind us of forgotten things before the weekend.

7pm GMT – Tuesday 25th May 2010

NERF WAR…. It’ll start at 8pm now.  Doctor Who is on at 7pm this Saturday which is later than usual, so I’ve put the time on by half an hour.  Before we start shooting, the Pocky Brigade will be back chasing Joey down, then war shall begin!

Alright, now to the depressing bit.  Half an hour before doing this, I did my videos which needed filming, I was hyper, maybe a little too hyper, and then I got depressed.  Reason being.. Lost finished!  It’s sinking in now that it’s over.  6 years worth of my favourite TV show and it’s all finished.  Tony is very sad.  I suppose I’d be alright with having Flash Forward to look forward to but that finishes this Monday and they f***ing cancelled it!  Looks like I’ll have to take things into my own hands then doesn’t it?

Not only this, on Sunday at noon, England are playing against…… JAPAN!  NOOOOOOOOOOOOO, F***!  NO!  NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!  Why Expo weekend when I’m having fun and being busy, WHY?  I’ve been wanting to see England play against Japan for years, now it happens, NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!  *SWEARS A LOT*  I want a time machine!  God damn it, I hate you FIFA!

In other news, I got my Japanese football shirt today.  I’m very proud to support my country.  😉

Pre-Expo Info Blog

Alright, this is my last blog about Expo before the big event.  I go down there in 4 days, stay there from Friday to Monday, and have one of the best times ever.  This time, I’m probably more busy than any other Expo.  I think my sleep times will range from none to completely none, and by Monday morning I’ll still be hyper drinking Coke.  LET’S DO THIS!

Friday
I meet Jodie, and we head off to London.  We’ll probably get to the Premier Travel Inn just before 2pm, so please, whoever has my number, don’t text me.  It’s nice of you to ask where I am but I get swamped.  It’s a tradition I’d like to stop.  Here.. if I’m not there by 2.30pm, text me then.  😛
After saying hello to loads of my awesome friends, it’s time to head off into London at 4pm.  If you’re going, meet outside the PTI at 3.45pm because if you’re not out there by 4pm, you’ll miss going with the group.  If nobody else is going at 4pm, I’ll see you all later at Namco.  😛
First stop is Forbidden Planet, then off for food (I’m going to McDonalds), and then to Namco Arcade.  As soon as I get in there, I’ll be setting up my camera and starting the Air-Hockey Tournament.  If the demand is as high as it seems, it could be a long tournament.  If you’re not planning on sticking around in Namco, do not enter the tournament, the last thing I’ll want is someone to get into the next round and leave, or can’t be found and waste people’s time looking for you.  That WILL annoy me.  *evil Tony look*  Yes, anyway, hehe.  I have prizes for the final which Sheffield Space Centre complimented us with, so really epic stuff.
I have no idea when the Tournament will end but hopefully if we can keep it flowing well, it’ll end before 9pm.  I want to do my game of Deal Or No Deal and win this time.
Anyway, make sure you have your pennies with you, it’s going to be an epic night.  After Namco, it’s back to the PTI, and to bed as soon as I get there as well.

Saturday
Up at 3am, get dressed up as Professor Oak, and get into the PTI lobby at 4am.  I’ll get up at 3am because other than getting ready, I’ll need food.  4.05am, it’s to the ExCeL where the bridge is… what bridge?  Haha.  Oh well, someone will know.  A load of us cosplayers will then watch the sun rise, and then queue up.  Sammy will be doing a Pokewalker Challenge starting at 5.30am so if you want to be a part of that, check her Facebook, she’ll be tagged on this blog on that said website.
I wasn’t going to get up that early but I think it’ll be a lot of fun and I want my place at the front of the queue.
We queue up, which is also a big part of the Expo weekend, and then go into the event.  First thing’s first, I want my Masquerade ticket.  Then I’m going to the Tecmo Koei stand because they have epic stuffs.
I will be doing my first wander video very early in the day before the place gets crowded.  I want to see the stalls properly and film the lot.  I will do a second wander video later on though concentrating more on the cosplayers.
At 12pm, it’s the Nintendo DS World Record attempt, which will be broken.  Later on, I’ll queue for Masquerade and watch a brilliant event.  It’s the qualifier for the Euro Cosplay Championships so one not to miss.  Of course, as always, I’ll be dreading my camera going pop or something.  I don’t think I show my worries when I’m there but I’m always scared my camera will mess up or something.
Straight after Masquerade, I’m not waiting for anything, it’s a mad dash back to PTI to watch Doctor Who.  At 7.30pm, it’s the Nerf War, which Georgina has kindly said she’d film using my camera and following me about in the war.  Last time we did this, I didn’t film anything, so this time I want something for Tonyo Times’ Expo Extra.  That’ll be fun.  Oh, and the Pocky Brigade is abck as Joey does the crazy thing of sticking Pocky to himself and running.  He’ll have a 20 second head start this time, and only a minute to catch him.  THAT WILL BE IMMENSE!
To end the night, it’s time for pizza and a relaxing time in the PTI lobby and bar.  I doubt it’ll be an early night, but I think I’ll try being earlier than usual.

Sunday
Up early to queue for the relaxing day at Expo.  Professor Oak will be put away until 2012 because on Sunday, I’ll be the Nerf Ninja.  I’ll have my two guns, and Nerf combat gear on.  It will be epic. 
From 11am to 12.30pm, it’s the Crazy Collaboration Meet just inside ExCeL west entrance (Custom House station side).  If there’s anyone you like on TCT, ICN or KoC, this is a good chance to meet them.  Not all members will be there, but quite a few will be.
In the afternoon, it’s the Masquerade, so I’ll be queuing again for that and hoping my cameras behave.  I am planning on having a third camcorder by October.  Just got to save the pennies until then.
After the Expo is over, me and a few others go to the chippy.  This time, we’ll be heading over to hang out with Luna and friends.  I suggested a game of football to see in the World Cup and I’ve taken it upon myself to lead Japan to victory.  I want 4 teams to play a league, about 5-7 minutes per game, and hopefully we’ll get people to film it and take photos.  It might get a bit dark though?  I will have my official world cup Japan shirt for then, I can’t wait to wear it for my country.  Haha.
The last thing on Sunday will be the chat.  The After-Expo Chat is the controverisal and most honest view you’ll see, EVER!  Me and a group of Expo friends talk about the weekend.  It’s the most unwatched thing on my Expo Extra videos, but it’s still one of those things we need to do to complete the weekend.

Monday
I’ll probably be in the lobby until late drinking a can of Pepsi, unless nobody else I know is in there.  I want to do the lobby again, it was fun in October.
I get a little bit of sleep and then it’s home time.  Boo *cries*  Then we all get home, get online, and talk about what we’re doing in October.

I must stress that I have so much to do, with things I haven’t included in this, that my time has to be accurate and I cannot wait around for anyone.  I do apologise in advance if you’re expecting anything of me, but if I have to be somewhere like I’ve stated here, then I will have to go.  Time is a big issue this Expo, too much to film, not enough time.
Other things I will be filming will be the new Expo People, MCM Buzz Special, and I have another plan which I think I’ll keep to myself because it’s mine.  😛

Alright, let’s all have some fun, and see you at Expo.  YES!

Tonyo Times – Issue 120

CCN Magazine

Anyone in the Crazy Collaboration Network thinking ‘what the hell is with that title?’ YES, I’m making us a magazine. I’m on Kingdom Of Crazyness from this Saturday taking over Corinna’s role. I’m quite looking forward to making my return, and in celebration I’m going to gather the videos every week and make a magazine on Thursdays with the previous weeks 21 videos from all 3 channels. Hopefully it’ll evolve over time with new sections, but it’ll start with just the weeks videos.

Anyways, if you haven’t already made your video for next week, you can always make a video on the non-themed week saying hello or something as they’ll go in the first issue. The first one will be out on Thursday 27th May and will contain the videos from this Thursday to next Wednesday. Or in better terms.. TCT Week 73, ICN Week 48, and KoC Week 21.

Only thing I’d ask everyone to do is put a bit more in the video description as that’s the info I’ll likely be using to put with the video on eBooks. Okies, so let’s see how thing goes. This Thursday is bit of a new start. 😉 I’ll tag everyone I can on Facebook so hopefully you’ll all know about this. If people don’t, make sure you spread the word. The CCN is about to expand a little bit.

Tonyo Times – Issue 119

Pokewalker and Fringe

Couple of things to talk about here before I go to bed. Fortunately, tonight is my last night at work until Thursday. I work next weekend and then I have a week off for Expo. YES! So this week I’ll be sorting any media stuff I need to and save all the little bits and bobs for the week after.

Pokewalker.. I made a status on my Facebook asking if anyone had a Pokewalker. I got quite a good response but now I’m going to explain why I asked and everyone will groan and leave the room. 😛
If you’ve seen my Tonyo Times blogs where I make a newspaper cover thing, I like getting people to take photos of a certain genre and I add them to that. This time, I want people to take photos with their Pokewalkers. Add your photo to Facebook and tag me, I’ll nab it and put it on a Tonyo Times. 🙂 I know I’ll get people saying they’ll do it and then never do. That’s the way it’s always been, but as long three or four people give it a go, I’ll be pleased.
I might make a special gallery on my Expo ebbok (after Expo) for Pokewalker owners. I will be looking for people at Expo who have one to take photos. Let’s see how many I can get.

Fringe.. If you’ve been keeping up to date with what’s happening at Expo, you’ll see a lot of talk about Fringe actors. To be perfectly honest, I hadn’t got a clue what Fringe was. I thought it was a programme about a hair salon or something. It isn’t though, it’s J.J. Abrams latest series which has gone into two seasons and has been signed for a third. I haven’t seen any of it yet but after having a read about it and with Amazon customers rating it very highly, I took the plunge and bought the first series. So you know what else I’ll be doing before Expo weekend. Cheers MCM, I may have found a new series that I desperately need since Lost is finishing in a couple of weeks. *cries* Nooooooo, don’t end Lost… wait, actually, please end, it’s getting stupid. Haha.
