MAS PRODUCTIONS (Matt )
Man its been awhile since my last entry, I guess since college classes resumed I've been out of time lately. Well now that summer has begun I can spend more time here as well as on videos. Im currently working on a new vid for El Farlo's contest. I've had the idea for a while but I've been unable to do it until now. This is the first video I'm going to intergrate 3D effects in. Hopefully it turns out well.
On a side note my web comic "Extreme Lunacy" should be up in no time. Its interesting to convert conversations and random ideas I have into comics. I guess its a way to spread the joke.
Quu . . . . . .
I dont know whats happened to bring about your journal entry but I, and Im sure many others, also go through what you seem to be going through. I dont know about anyone else but I greatly appreciate the help you've been to all the contests you have been a staff member of.
Akon trip 2
Last weekend had to be my busiest ever.
Friday I wasn't able to make Akon since I had to graduate from Highschool. Around midnight I packed and left in my Blazier to travel 237 miles to Dallas.
After 4 hours I finally arrived at my hotel. After finding out that I couldn't check in I decided to head down to Akon to get my badge and find parking. Since my hotel was only 8 miles from Akon it only took 5 or so minutes to get to the hotel, the only problem was I couldn't find the off ramp to get to the parking lot. After a series of U turns I finally got into the parking lot. After about 45 minutes I finally found a parking spot (not a legal one but oh well). As soon as I walked in the door I knew something was different. They had created a new line for Pre reg ^-^. It only took 2 minutes to get my badge and goody bag as compared to the hour long wait last year. After I got my stuff I decided to go ahead down stairs. When I got downstairs I started looking for MJ or Carlos so I could find out if there were any get togethers planned. 30 minutes passed so I decided to and check out the deals in the dealers rooms. This year it seemed that the delar rooms were even more packed so it was hard to move around. As soon as I walked in I heard "Slayers season 1, 15 dollars!' About 1 minute later I was the proud owner of Slayers season 1. Well after buying that one of my friends from Arkansas bumped into me and we set out to find great deals. After purchasing some awesome dvds I decided to continue my search for La Famillia. I finally found Carlos and Hitori only to find out that they two hadn't seen anyone else for awhile. MJ, Wonka and Beowolf were mia and Danny Wilson was apparently sleeping. After talking about the AMV awards I decided to go check into my hotel.
After checking in to the Holiday Inn Select south and grabbing a soda I decided to head back, only one problem though . . . bad parking. After thinking for Awhile I decided to get a shuttle down to the Hyatt. After arriving I head straight down to the AMV awards. After watching the awards and not finding the AMV group I decided to head down to the game room and play some SSBM. When I first got there, there was a guy who was bragging about being un defeated but after getting his ass kicked by my worst character he quietly left without saying another word. After realizing there was no compotetion, I left to watch some anime. First I decided to watch Hikaru no Go ( BIG MISTAKE !!!!). Well after watching five minutes of that I left and watched She the ultimate weapon. That anime was wierd but pretty cool. After I finished watching anime I decided to return to the game room, this time around there was more competition but nothing great. When I found out that the guys I met were the ones I wanted to meet from the Smash boards I decided to sign up for the tournament. I came up with the ultimate plan, I make sure that I lose every match and then at the tourney wipe the floor with them and suprise them. Great plan only one problem, after losing to them and going to find MJ I remembered that the last shuttle to my hotel left before the tournament began. So I had to make a deciscion, either stay and prove myself as a true SSBM champion and stay stranded or leave and get back but have everyone think I suck. Unfortunatly for my status as a champion I had to leave because I was dead tired and barely couold stay awake.
.: Sunday :.
After waking up I decided there was nothing left to do at Akon so after checking out I left to go back home. After yet another 4 hours I got back only to find out that everyone who I lost to on purpose at Akon had spread the word that I suck.

Delay in Smash Bitches 2 and devlopment of new project
Well since there was an error that corrupted SB 2, I have decided to take up two new projects.
#1. The Matrix Trilogy
Music: Multiple trailers and audio from Matrix and reloaded.
We were inspired by Fuma from X to do this little project. After seeing the newest DVD of X and seeing Fuma in his kick ass coat and using Neo type powers we decided it would be a worth while project to pick up.
Music: known but unknown
After listening to the song, I decided I could make a pretty cool video out of it.
Updates in the MAS Productions world
First off, it has been quite awhile since my last journal entry, so I have alot to update on -
Unfortunatly, due to end of the year college exams and increasing pressure to complete projects, I have been unable to finish this project. The other problem was lack of help on articles and graphic design. The idea of an AMV magazine is still a great one but until I have time or another takes my place I dont see it getting done until this summer.
I have kind of been lacking in videos here lately due to college but with the Akon deadline only 1 day away I have decided to spear head my plan to renew Smash Bitches! With Smash Bitches: Second Round, I have chosen to use new clips as well as better quality footage. The great thing about the Smash Bitches projects is that the footage changes every time, making it more entertaining than the last. I do not plan on releasing it until after Akon unless I get requests for it. Hopefully with new, better footage and even a new version of the song; it will blow the compition out of the water at Akon.^-^
Due to the lack of updates on our site I decided it wasn't really worth keeping up, but due to my new web comic I have been working on I might have a new site up and running in 2 weeks or so.
Originally I planned on releasing a full manga style comic. One with a co-herient storyline as well as a plot. Due to lack of time, I have decided just to make the comic about daily like with two of the MAS crew at college. The web comic should be extremely funny and I plan on premiering the first comic in a week or so.
Off line life
The end of the college year is next week so final exams and project due dates are really bogging me down. Fortunatly after next tuesday I will be out of college until August, so yay!
Lately I have been training really hard with master Chan for the upcoming tournament. The daily routine is really tough but I get stronger every day. I plan on going to watch X Men 2 with PDperfection this weekend and then Matrix: reloaded on the 15th. It seems that May is a very important month for me.
3. X men 2
4. Matrix: Reloaded
5. Buffy: Series Finally
Even though this month will be hella fun it will also be really depressing for my mother since May 28th was supposed to by her and my fathers anniversary, which if you remember he abandoned her 4 months ago.
I have made final arrangements for Akon this year. I have pre registered and booked my hotel room at the Holiday Inn Select South DFW. This year I will be the only member of MAS Productions to show up but one of my friends has decided to come with me. This year I wont arrive at Akon until saturday morning due to graduation. I plan on spending all of Saturday and Sunday at Akon to make up for missing on the kick ass stuff on Friday. I also plan on spending alot of my time with La Familia to make up for last year. I am seriously hoping that the SSBM tournament will be held on Saturday so that I can participate. Last Year I didn't because neither PDperfection nor Slacker joined and since they didn't, there was no compition for me so I didn't sign up. I hope that there are better fighters this year than last. Last year the compeditors stunk badly and the guy who won first wasn't even that good. Anyways I am really looking foward to Akon this year since I will be alone for the most part...oh ya one more thing I am looking foward to - - HENTAI FEST!!!! I missed it last year due to the fact that PDperfection was under 18 but since I am alone this year I will attend, along side Machine and MJ.
Damn! that was a huge update well hope it was educational. ^-^
