Show #019c - The 2006 Otakon Artist's Alley Debacle and Thoughts on the Issue of "Fanart", Part 3
Direct Download: Music:
"Young, Dumb & Ugly" by Weird Al, from the 1993 album "Alapalooza"
. You can get the whole song and album in the iTunes store. Alapalooza was one of the first CDs I ever owned. Many of the songs parodied on the album will probably fly right over the heads of our youngest listeners. There's a very funny clip of this song and Akira
in AMV Hell 3
Vocab: Sycophants, Sycophantic
I am so sick
of this episode by now. It no longer even seems relevant. According to this ANN poll
, most people don't even care about Artist's Alley at all. In fact, it's a depressing poll, where the majority of people answering it haven't been to cons, and most people taking the survey preferred meeting American voice actors to meeting Japanese creators, or even Japanese voice actors!
Here's the first ever Fan Art me and Noah got of ourselves by Zelda Girl 4:
Alison still has not drawn Vash the Stampede and InuYasha riding a Chocobo. I'm encouraging all of our listeners to draw it, and we'll put up a gallery later. Maybe I'll make a mini-comic of just sketches of Vash and Inuyasha riding a Chocobo. Under current Otakon rules that would be allowed in unlimited quantity, if it was a booklet. Putting it on T-shirts or buttons wouldn't fly, but we could sell 25 posters of it.Promos:
