Otaku 5-0 Season 2: Episode 12

Aloha everybody!

I must apologize for the delay in getting the latest fruit of our labors to you, but our schedules have been in a temporary state of flux. But we still are on track to end our season by the 1st week of June.

But first, some unfortunate tidings. Due to scheduling (we have been set behind a week due to my work obligations) and staffing concerns (Jupiter will be leaving on a vacation this week and will not return until the end of the month), I have decided to end this season at 14 episodes instead of the planned 15. That means the recording session planned for May 25th (Monday) will be for the season finale.

Since we only have 2 episodes remaining in the season, we (your intrepid podcast staff) are already discussing on what to do for next season. One of those discussions centered around an idea that I had about recording audio commentary tracks for some of our favorite (or not so favorite) movies, TV shows & anime series and then posting them here for you (our audience) to enjoy. Unfortunately, in the chaos of the current season this idea got put on the back burner. But now, I am pleased to announce that we will be recording an audio commentary track for the movie adaptation of Harry Potter & The Sorcerer's Stone. I am confident that the finished product will be an entertaining (and informative) experience...At least for us.

But returning to current events, we are joined on the panel by DJ Buma, Assistant Technical Director & VAST (Video Art Showcase Theater) Coordinator for Kawaii-kon. Actually, this is the first time that he is appearing on the panel NOT acting in an official capacity (even devoted staffers sometimes need a break.)

I have to LOL because of there was no solid... ending saying haha. But I have to agree with Mr. A about Star Trek. Very awesome. In the middle of the movie, I decided to watch it again haha.

Dork, geek, or nerd... I'm a mixture I guess haha.
