I was there in 2007, Long beach was the worse AX I have been too. I remember someone saying the discs were stolen, I don't recall if it was the announcer or just some people passing by. But I never heard of anything beyond that. I remember the contest being postponed and going to the showing the next day with my friends. Which brings up another event. I don't recall if this was masquerade or AX Idol or the amv contest But I remember one year there was a blackout of sorts and everyone started using their phones as light and started wave them back and forth XD.

The paper airplane thing I have never heard before. Wow. Must have been a quite a sight though

The paper airplane was basically the tipping point of a very long night of standing and waiting.

Ha, 2007 was the first time one of my videos got into the contest and I was so disappointed with the stolen disks that I went back to the hotel and promptly passed [Which is coming from someone who stays up stupid late]. I still look at the whole thing fondly though, kinda funny to hear that after all this time.

The previous year with the freezing room was the straw that broke my back after going to AX for a couple years... I am so glad I dodged that paper airplane lol

this year's intro brings back some old school that all you fogies should appreciate :asd: I'd love to take credit for the original idea, but it was actually troy's...

This reminds me of a dream I had one time where AX moved to Big Bear and everyone had to watch the AMV contest in the snow. The guy running the projector was frozen like an ice cube you see in cartoons. :uhoh: :sorcerer:

I remember when this was a thing. I'm 95% sure which one of my entries made it, even so... Most conventions typically opt for the ticket to visit the Fianna rather than being dunked into the ethereal waters of overlay heaven.

I was there for the paper airplane episode in 2002... The problem was they waited way too long to tell anyone an when they did the audience was totally angry as they waited almost a hour and there was a standby line outside waiting too! That was the first time when I ever saw 3000 people almost ready to riot.. It was the last time I went to AX until 2009..

Yes, and I remember in that same freezing room Kevin's Fangirls friends saying "Lets just give Kevin the prizes and go to bed" and a certain "Joe" Person saying "Yea, right!"... A priceless moment indeed!

Ok after checking the ticket roster, looks like my problem that was my own damn fault is solved - I only asked for one ticket because I thought none of my friends who hadn't entered wanted to go, then it turned out someone I thought wasn't coming to AX was indeed coming and on top of that she was upset I hadn't gotten a second ticket for her. D'oh! :(

But it turns out one of my friends that also entered will be getting enough tickets to cover my mistake, thank God. However that leads into a question I asked a few pages back that wasn't answered because it was my first post and got stuck in moderation: If my friend and I pick up our tickets at the same time, will the seats be all in one group? From one of your earlier comments it sounds like this would be the case unless someone shuffles the tickets on us.

The priceless moment for me was when they talked about the best technical video winner from the previous year... citing my Lain video which did not win the award... and watching Kevin hang his head

I just wanted to know if there will be an award given for the best gif/jpeg in the contest thread? :ying:
