In this lineup of celebrities, I'm more of a supporting player. :P

Actually, I'm "executive producer" for AMV Salad 3 (see sig :book: ).

I'll be walking around as Beelzenef for most of Saturday but on Friday I'm Nekozawa. I'll have a hand puppet of Beelzenef, of course. If you're at all superstitious and think you would like to increasy your video's chances of winning, sign your opponents' names on the back of its head. :mrgreen:

Hrrm. I saw that I can pick up my badge for the special seating OK, but I remember reading it's good for me and two friends. Is this still the case? If so, my boyfriend can't make it until the very end (lucky for me, since I'm in Comedy!!) so how should he go about sitting with me? Is seat-saving allowed?

I have one friend who can make it for most of it and cut out later, and I think my boyfriend won't be able to make it until my friend is gone (he's leaving work early to join me when my video is premiered, I am so loved haha). So if there's only one extra seat for everyone, that'll be okay...

Buhh. Wish I knew about this... although, Cheesecake Factory isn't a great idea if I want to fit into my costume tomorrow. I've been working on looking good for it for the past month, I am not going to blow it by eating at the Cheesecake Factory the night before. XD

Eat well, they have delicious fish and chips.... hahah.

Well according to the schedule back on page 15 (in the unlikely event that it is accurate) the first round has come and gone. Good luck to all.

Packed to the point where the fire marshal had to intervene, apparently. And awesome! (Especially the Trailer/Parody category :D Not that I would have a personal stake in that category or anything. :wink: )

the contest was cool-beans! :D
-although, i know i lost already..

the room was PACKED...so much for "reserved seating for finalists" ^__^;;
i had to stand until there was a point where people began raising hands if there was a seat next to them~

i'm exaggerating though, it was still a good year. The intro was amazing as always!
