Since it was brought up extensively in the last few days, here’s Adam’s appearance on BiteTV’s The Surf with The Conventioneers. It was actually really good. It’s actually worth watching the rest of the show too, so check it out.
Also for those of you wondering, Mike will hopefully add the links of interests for the last three episodes within 24 hours…he just needs to find where he put that list…after he’s recovered from his Post Convention Syndrome.
Update: Links of Interest now added for Anime North episodes. Mike is wondering if there’s something he forgot…
…and the podcast panel at 9pm.
As for the tapings, don’t forget they happen tonight and tomorrow at 11pm in the New York Room in the Doubletree Hotel. Get a sense for how the show looks live, including the stuff that happens when we turn the recorders off. And yes, there will be Pocky and maybe something for whoever listened to Courteney.
And don’t forget we’re still looking for e-mails to Mike’s iPhone. So if you have a question you would like us to try and read on the air: firstname.lastname@example.org
And if you miss the show, check back here overnight when we put the episode online, and your feeds in the morning before you go off to enjoy the convention.
See you tonight!!
A final reminder on the tapings of the Roundtable this weekend at Anime North. We’ll be taping two late night shows on the Friday and Saturday at 11pm in the Doubletree Hotel in Video Room #4 (The New York Room), same place as last year. Maybe with free Pocky too, just like last year.
Don’t forget, we’ll be putting up the episodes here on the website within a few hours of taping, and the feeds will hopefully be updated by morning.
And remember, I’ll be looking for the first guy who listens to Courteney’s third and final piece of convention survival advice. Forgot what it is? Listen to the final insults of episode 19 right here (at about the 59 min mark). There might be a prize.
Also we are doing other stuff that might be of interest as the convention approaches.
- Host Mike Nicolas will be doing a podcasting panel along with Enrico Bianco, and Ron Mandziak (aka DJ City) from The Japan Xperience. We’ll give our tips on podcasting along with stories from our experiences. That’ll be on Friday at 9pm in Panel 3 (The Hamilton Room).
- Following up from our friend and TATANS co-host Brent Chittenden’s appearance on Bite TV, our own Adam Grant will be on it LIVE, on Thursday night at 9pm in the run up to the convention. Check out his appearance on The Surf with The Conventioneers. I know I’ll have my DVR set for this. If your have Rogers Cable its channel 322, or you can check out www.bite.ca for more info. Expect another mention of this tomorrow.
- And while we’re at it Megan will be helping out at the gaming area, while James will be helping out the all night track. Gotta give props to every member right?
Oh and one final thing. We are looking for e-mails on the fly, so if you have something for the panel as the tapings are happening, please e-mail Mike’s iPhone at email@example.com. If your question is interesting, we’ll put it on the air. And we really hope to make a segment out of it.
See ya at AN!!
It dawned upon me over the weekend that the actual anniversary of the show is today. It was three years ago tonight when myself, Neil, and James sat in a classroom in the Bethune building at York University, across from the school’s anime club hosting their weekly screening, and started to talk about stuff going on in the anime world, with our Canadian sense.
I’ll say a little bit more about it this later this week. But I thought I’d regard it since it is today. Needless to say though, I am happy to have gotten to three years. Some say it’s been a waste of time, others say it’s been AN INCREDIBLE waste of time. Thank you to everyone for listening and wasting some of that time with us.
On that note, we’re actually leaning against doing an episode this week. However I may have a surprise for everyone by the end of the week for your listening pleasure or otherwise.
And another long hiatus. Nothing like the lazy and hazy days of summer.
Just wanted to tell everyone we’re still not dead and that the new season begins next week. And as tradition goes, the first show of the season will have our thoughts on the Toronto conventions over the summer.
Also a quick heads up, we’ll be starting a new feature sometime before the new episode too. Look forward to that.
*and I’ll be looking forward to another season of Neil and Adam…or should it be bracing myself for??
Hopefully this will be the final delay of more than four weeks between recordings of any sort. There may be one more week long hiatus before the end of the year (for reasons which were hinted at in the last episode…a prize for the first person who knows what), but that should be it. After that, we plan to be more consistent than we ever were.
I can’t wait, can you?
Best wishes to our own Angela Jordan as she left for her one year JET placement in Japan this past weekend. At last word she’s finishing up her orientation meetings in Tokyo and will finally go to her placement later today. Angela will still be contributing to the Roundtable. We’ll figure out the details sometime in the near future.
In case you’re wondering, Angela’s placement is in Koriyama City, in Fukushima Prefecture, north of Tokyo. This is very much the hub of the prefecture. Anime wise, its most famous resident is seiyuu Miki Nagasawa (EVA, Princess Nine, Vampire Princess Miyu)….Yeah I Wiki’d it.
If you want to know more click here for Koriyama City’s Official Website in English.
Also heads up podcast fans. We plan to finally tape our next episode with the next week. Of course it’ll be up not too long after. Mike, James are set to return with the Visser brothers. So the wait is almost over.
Please look forward to it.
Depending on which version you want to believe, Mike is either still recovering from a nagging illness he’s had the entire month of July…or Mike is still recovering from everything concerning episode 50.
Trust me, you can put up a good arguement for both.
In any event, lots has happened the last few months so hopefully we’ll have a new episode up in the next couple weeks.
Hey, we’re sort of enjoying summer…
And almost right on cue after taping the 50th episode with both Adam and Neil…I need a few days to both recover AND decide what to do with what was recorded. Because of that, the episode won’t come on for at least a few days. If you were at the actual recording of the episode at Anime North on Saturday night, you’ll know what I mean.
Anyway, I have to continue recovering…
