Well,...my three-year streak of not getting on the AMV contest ballot continues.

I feel like giving up sometimes... :(

...and three Ouran vids in comedy (if that's what the Twincest one is)? Wasn't there anything else to lend some variety?

Hmm. This is only the second time since 2003 that I didn't make finals. Of course, it helps that (1) I shouldn't use an over-used song as the background, and (2) I shouldn't spoil major, MAJOR moments of the anime I'm showcasing in my video. Also, to be fair, there *were* 70 entries in the contest, and I was told there were a LOT of videos in the action category this year, and I was warned that my video would be on the brink one way or the other.

Still, 2007 was just a year that I wasn't hitting on all cylinders for my AMV's. But this year should be good (I hope) with what I have planned. So here's looking to 2008!

Plus, for those going to Katsu, I'm showing The Doomrider Project: DBZ in 10 Minutes on Saturday morning at 8:45am right after the showings of the Bardock and Trunks TV specials. Please come over and check it out!

WOW! I can still go online before the connection here at the Hotel becomes totally pwned!

For question #5, there is no reserved seating. Seating shall favor the victorious!

I wish you good luck in the coming battle! :twisted:

Don't feel bad, though, I don't get a seat! I stand guard at the door and hand out ballots! VOTE! VOTE! VOTE!
