This was my first time at an anime / comic book convention.  I had a blast at ACen!

My friend Ramon’s big little brother Alfredo warned me it would be weird and he was right. Bearded man stuffed into a Sailor Moon costume weird.

The vibe from the attendees was overwhelmingly positive and everyone attending was beyond accepting of the weirdness: everyone, myself included, was (literally) geeking out!

In the afternoon Ramon and I sat in on a panel discussing the role of cats in anime.  The presenters, husband and wife, brought in a treasure trove of anime cat clips from Sailor Moon’s cat Luna to the award winning soul-searching Cat Soup.

Don’t let the guy with the, “Free Shrugs,” sign get you to buy into his cynical worldview. There is a lot to get excited about at ACen.  I’m excited about the fluffy cat head Gabi got me as a gift!

RIP Superdawg

My favorite hotdog in the world. Having a Superdawg on a beautiful Sunday in May is like a spiritual experience for me!

Today I drove my 3 friends to Anime Central in Rosemont and we had a Sunday late morning pitstop at Superdawg.   It was my first anime convention and he first time eating at Superdawg for Ramon and Gabriel.

Ramon had a Super Chick and loves the BBQ sauce. His big little brother Alfredo had a Whoopsie Cheese and immediately craved another. Gabriel had a Superfish.  Alfredo remarked how cool it was that Superdawg has been continuously operated by Maurie and Flaurie and their family since just after World War 2. superdawg maurie flaurie rip acen anime central godzilla gabriel ruiz ramon eymar flores 3rdarm arthur mullen  

In the afternoon we heard the news: Maurie, founder of Superdawg, passed away this morning.  He was 89.  Thank you Maurie for the world’s best hotdog. My pure beef heart goes out to your wife Flaurie and the family.
