Thanks Sol!!

Good idea.

Any good commercials (anime related)?

Most old commercials are pryty good anyway.

Some weird stuff about tampons, McD's Chicken Nuggetsm various snack foods and a cool toy commercial for BioDragon and BioRobo.

I am a profesional sound engineer and would be happy to lend my services if needed, incase Mari decides to do a number and needs to set up anything (mixer, mic, speakers, etc).

AND

I never got a confirmation email.

AND

I may have something to enter in the JM/SD/nonscale catagory.

i got your payment on June 5th. Just sent you a confirmation email.

and i would LOVE your help with Mari's performance if you could bring a sound system.... All i have is a Fender P250 speaker system that i was going to hook up a mic and a Yamaha S80 keyboard too...

I was gonna get some monitors and speaker stands, but if you have some of your own equipment or sound system you'd like to bring and help set up, that'd be awesome!!!

and i'll enter your stuff into the customs contest.... thanks!!

Fortress Maximus gave me an idea that i think would be cool for the con:

Maybe in addition to supporting Mari by buying her cds we should give her a handmade gift? I know there are tons of artistly talents folks on MW and there are bound to be some attending too. Perhaps we could get one of them to create a unique work in tribute to her not just as a fanboy lusting object, but for her greater body of work as a performer and singer. I think something like this might be really appreciated by Mari since it is from the heart and the MW con members contributing to the comission of this drawing or sculpt could initial the base or frame or something. Just a thought. Lmk how it goes.

does anyone want to make anything cool for Mari??? i could pitch in... but i suck at making stuff... but it would be a cool tribute to give to her from us.....

MacrossWorld Con is just around the corner!!!! for those still interested in attending but have not yet registered... PLEASE register by emailing MWcon2007@gmail.com

the con is almost 2 weeks away!!! we have Mari confirmed.... and possible appearances from Egan, Tommy Yune, and Tom Bateman....

If you have registered, please check out the event thread to sign up for events. At this point, i think we're going to cancel the karaoke contest and just have it for fun....

some people have entered the customs contest.... we may just have sign ups for the video game tourneys at the con itself.

the big thing is the POKER TOURNAMENT!!! I need all those who are interested to sign up for the poker tourney ASAP so we can secure the prizes. check out the event sign up thread soon!

for those who registered and were interested in purchasing an Autographed CD, here is what Mari has for sale and will be bringing to the Con:

"Uncompromising Innocence" - $20 (Her newest Album)

" Silent Love" - $20

"Gems" - $20

"Lorna Doone." -$10 (Soundtrack CD)

Everyone who has agreed to purchase a CD from Mari will get first dibs in line for the autograph session. You can purchase the CD of your choice directly from Mari and have her autograph it anyway you like. In addition, each person in line can only have up to 3 items signed by Mari to keep the flow going.

Those who want more stuff signed can get back in line if they wish. The performance and autograph session should be really fun. Again, if you're interested in attending the con but haven't registered yet, PLEASE register ASAP.

Thanks!

If you look carefully at the first pix of that collection, you'll see it in the middle with a clear plastic cylinder over it. ^_^

plans for this year's con began in February of this year... I suppose if we keep the same venue, we can begin planning earlier, but we'll have to wait till near the end of this year to check the availability of the rooms. If I do host another con next year, we'll make it bigger and better for sure!
