I was back home Tuesday night, and still am having a hangover from the convention. The last 3 working days (including today) were unproductive. I couldn't get much progress in my projects. One week ago on this day and time, I was able to attend the first rock concert in my life... Delinquent

On a positive note, I found that I lost about 3 lbs over the course of the convention trip. Smile

I was thinking they might avoid blogging about specific gifts, because if they blog about one and not EVERY gift then someone would feel bad theirs wasn't recognized.

CURE did [help] bring SCANDAL over to AM2 for us though, so we can't really blame them too much. xD

It has nothing to do with cure or sony. Chase is very busy doing post-con work right now, so he hasn't had the time to approve Day 3 photos yet.

Also, please refrain from making public comments regarding CURE or management. That does not look well for AM2 or Scandal if stuff like that gets disseminated around the web. We only wanted to tell everyone why things occurred, but not have everyone form opinions...

Thanks very much

My Turn

So now after being home and having roughly 30 minutes am going to try and post my whole experience at AM2, wish me luck.

July 30th

so 10fingersmikey (Matt) Arrived at my place around 5 or 6pm and we chilled for a bit and woke up at 5am to leave for California, we both went to sleep around 1am so we made the trip on 4 hours of sleep. Sometime around 7am on the 30th we got into California Upon getting into California my GPS took a turn for the worse and I ended up getting sent into a bad part of town to say the least. Thankfully Matt and I came into the hotel at the same time, but that time was 2:30pm. The press junket started at 2pm. After Matt and I hustled over to the convention center I ran around looking for the interview places. Sadly after running around a little bit I got upstairs only to interrupt on going interviews due to my stupidity.

I picked up my Pass Port was shocked to read, Rossy Oliver, The Cute and Fluffy for the name. I thought it was a joke lol.

My first interview was with Kanon x Kanon (I'll post stuff regarding the interviews later) I told them how nervous I was and I apologized for making noise when I came in. At the end of the interview, as per Koide's request because he is my hermano and part of the team in spirit (like saku) Kanon made Koide a happy birthday sign, and I couldn't stop laughing when they asked "guy or girl"

My second interview was with Sadie, which as I can tell more than half the people here know about already . I walked up and again apologized for making noise and they said it was fine, then I said I was nervous and here is where I plan on Trolling some Sadie forum in the future. "oh, you are nervous, come here" The whole band gave me a bro hug, but the drummer slapped my butt and grabbed my berries. I asked if I should greet the drummer the same way...

Afterward they bro hugged me goodbye and I couldn't get any more interviews because of how late I was... Afterwards I grabbed some Starbucks, and I met Sadie again... more bro hugs were exchanged. After grabbing a drink I met up with Matt and we waited for Jade, Erich, Neil and Alan to arrive.after waiting a long time (and me sleeping) they all showed up. Jade was rocking the Shoujo S and you can all see the picture a few pages back. We all grabbed some food and went home afterwards.

July 1st


First day of con. Everything here is kind of blurry lol. So we all arrived at Con with Jade sporting Haruka that day. Everyone had their passports, but Jade and I forgot to get our Press Passes the day before. So Jade and I waited in line when they caught a picture of us doing a weird pose lol. Afterwards we went to the opening ceremony where Erich and Neil should up in a Canta and Doraemon suit respectively. They made the AM^2 facebook, without noticing, so did Jade and myself lol. After that we all walked around a little and checked out the panels for Sadie and Kanon x Kanon. And both groups remembered me for the day before! Sadie just started at me a little and waved, I was shamed of course.

The Sadie panel was interesting to say the least lol. I was worried that the other panels where gonna be ruined because of some of the questions asked during the Sadie panel, but lucky for us the SCANDAL panel ran the same way. Sadie was asked what their favorite English words were.

In order:
Kiss
****
***
**
******

good luck guessing what I censored lol.

Afterwards, Jade and myself moved from the press side of the opposite end to get better photos of Kanon x Kanon. During the 30 minute break, I ran into Sadie in the bathroom, where 3 of the member who were present... bro hugged me... Words can't describe the walk of shame nor the awkwardness when I came back into the room and had an extreme Sadie fan girl hug me... after I used the restroom...

Kanon X Kanon followed and they had a so-so panel, it was interesting and a little on the silent side. At the end of the panel they had a trivia game. Neil got screwed out of a signed shirt when he said Kanon-san ate Chips and Salsa when it was Nachos.They used my question of "how did Kanon x Kanon start collaborating?" for the last question. When I realized this I stood up and said "oh, I know this one." Kanon x Kanon said "you can't answer" lol.

We all waited in line to get autographs of Kanon x Kanon and Sadie. Sadie bro hugged me at the autograph signing...

Afterwards we checked out the halls were they were selling stuff and I bought some SCANDAL things like Best SCANDAL and a T-shirt. Then we all went to see what was left of the Heidi concert and waited for Sadie. Sadie was a standing concert which forced Jade and myself to stand up while we took pictures and what not. We all rocked out a little to Sadie lol. I believe we called it night after running into Tenjou.

Day 2

We all woke up early for this day as well. I can't remember why at the moment. Jade was wearing the Cute! outfit this day and we found a Cinnamon Roll she could take a picture with. We chilled around a bit in the area and got everyone together for Purikura photos, with 9 people in the booth lol. We also got autographs from Kanon x Kanon.

We waiting for the Kanon x Kanon meet and greet. I tried getting a little ahead of the line, but it didn't work. Thai, Jade and myself got cut off right before it ended. After all of that the we watched the Kanon x Kanon concert which was very enjoyable. After the concert ended we headed to LAX...

LAX was a pretty rough drive. Someone stopped in the middle of the highway for no reason, and parking was pretty rough at LAX, but afterwards I was finally able to get us all parked and we waited for SCANDAL... at the wrong terminal. When we found the correct terminal I recall Neil being in front of the pack, then I think Alan, with myself in third and Matt behind me. We ran as fast as possible to the terminal and waited for a good long time. Then with my poor eyesight I was actually able to spot Tomomi in the distance.

SCANDAL arrived at LAX and we took photos of them and had the banner out. Before SCANDAL left they had their staff take photos of us with their own camera's even. We decided to grab something to eat after LAX, but that is all I remember considering I got sick at the restaurant, I think I was told everyone though I was sleeping the bathroom lol.

Day 3, SCANDAL DAY

Woke up nice and early. Matt, Jade and myself got at the convention around 7AM. Sam was there first though. Jade was sporting Pride today. It was a long day, we got front row for the SCANDAL panel at 10am. The panel was awesome, I don't recall too much of it as of right now, but I remember being nervous because of how close I was to SCANDAL. I started doing poses and waving to Tomomi who was in front of me. She waved back. Then i started doing poses cause am nervous and she started copying the poses, made me even more nervous, but she is awesome for it. Tomomi dropped her straw into a her water bottle and spent a good 2 minutes fishing it out which was really funny lol.

The autograph part was kind of harsh. You had to buy the SCANDAL shirt their to get the autograph. I bought mine on day 1. Lucky for me the lady selling all the Cure stuff remembered me because "I bought one of everything" and gave me a card.

After the panel we lined up for the meet and greet. I pretty much planked on the floor for about an hour. The meet and greet started eventually and Sam, Neil and myself I remember asked questions. In that order, Neil gave them something which made my question kind of pointless so I asked a dumb question, but SCANDAL liked what Neil gave them so its all good.

Next was the Concert. I can't describe how awesome it was, the set list was posted several times already. I remember losing it when Hoshi came on because I really wanted to hear that song live. We all rocked out and had a lot of fun. We met with SCANDAL after the concert and said thank you. Afterwards we all went home and went to bed to enjoy the last day of con.

Day 4

Bright and early again. Jade was wearing her Baby Action uniform this time. We waited a bit before press was able to get in. Someone took a photo of the back of Jade's and my head from the sounds of it... SCANDAL came in and we got a good minute to take photos of them, I took roughly 12 photos. We asked some questions, which I'll have to post later or talk about on the next SHP episode we have. Someone then also smelt Haruna's chair and drank from her water as well...

Last meet and greet, it was epic, got to shake their hands and I asked them what they thought about our cosplayers. They loved all of them. Jade did a good job on the cosplays as SCANDAL was very impressed.

I'll post stuff I did with the other members later, This post took me forever to write out.

"Not I" said the dog! I don't need to see it and she knows where the grinded down sticks came from... Rock on... but uh, I do feel bad for not getting anything else for the rest of the girls now that I think about it... The autograph sticks just happen to be there by default... HA HA!

@10fingers: I say blog about it now before the moment is gone! I don't think it'll have the same effect 2 months down the road as it does now... Plus it'll be archived if you do!

@Ross: Dude... You forgot to mention that you chilled with Sadie again after the SCANDAL concert... Facepalm
