OK. For those who dont know what supanova is, I'd say it's the Australian equivalent to comicon!!! And it was epic. Apart from meeting several famous celebrities such as Karl Urban (Eomer from LOTR and McCoy from Star Trek), Rachelle Lefevre (Victoria from Twilight) and Jake Lloyd (Anakin Skywalker from episode 1), i got to meet some fairly famous artists like Tim Sale (guy who does all the comic book art on Heores) and Dave Gibbons(the original artist for 'WATCHMEN'). But that was nothing compared to metting the man himself, Chris Sabat! (for those who dont know who he is, or if you're a douche-bag who doesnt care, Chris does the voices for Vegeta, Piccollo and Yamcha on DBZ, and also does the voice for Major Armstong on fullmetal alchemist among other roles). The one thing i couldn't believe was that there were no DBZ things under $40 that werent tiny, or crap, So i ended up going to the EB games store and buying a copy of DBZ Budokai 3 for him to sign. I also ran into some old mates from my old high school, that was great catching up, and we decided that i'll be cosplaying as Ryu from Street Fighter in the next Animania (australia's equivalent to anime-expo). Anyone from sydney, you'll see me at Animania in september, theres plenty of me to go around lol.

To tell the truth there were also the quite disturbing images there, such as the morbidly obese and a hip thrusting green power ranger with a camel toe. I've uploaded the full album on my photobucket page (which il put the link up once the goddamn internet speeds up and finishes uploading the photos!!!), so make sure to drop by and take a look at what was a really awesome convention. ive got the montage video on youtube now, so go check it out.

On a side note, i ran into BAJO, one of the hosts of Australia's "Good Game", a tv show for gamers, by gamers. The funny thing is that Rubber Ninja actuallyy develloped his 'Gamer Tonight' series for that show, and has never met the hosts. that means i have gained my honor back from my humiliating defeat onSF4 during the Sydney NG meetup, and have unlimited bragging power over Ross lol.

Sorry for the poor quality of some of the pictures, but i used my roommates camera, which is shit, and he didnt delete any old his old stuff on there, which literally gave me about 600Mbs to make this video. I even had to take a photo of me and chris with my phone lol.

anyway, I leave you with a picture of Me and the man, and until next time, Adieu.

on another side note, i have decided to re-write my script for my animation. now that i actually now how to write a script, and my drawing style is much more consistant, im forcing myself to remake dungeons and bandwagons, an unfinished project of mine that never got done due to shithouse timing. All i need is for rina-chan and sonofgokuj to record the new script and everything will be fine :D

ACTUALLY Chris Sabat is a douchebag.... if you think about it he hogs voices *ESPECIALLY DBZ* and takes JOBS AWAY from other VA's... <LOOK how many voices he did in DBZ... and countless other animes.>

OH and all his "VOICES" are the same.
At least Steve Blum can do different ones
