Ultraklystron Romance Language 2 CDs and Promo Photos

Looking good, no? Romance Language 2 be shipping no later than Friday, which means the preorder window is until tomorrow night. Also, orders after Monday afternoon won’t ship for a couple weeks as I’ll be out of town, so, that’s all the more reason to get a move on if you’re impatient, though I guess the truly impatient will always be able to hit up bandcamp, as I should have it for sale there by Sunday/Monday.

More hipster than nerdcore, but I wanted a little American Apparel flavor.

Haven’t posted some pictures to the blog (rather than forums or twitter) in a while, and I figure all 5 of my readers might enjoy some me.

what anime cons can learn from i/o

Posted on May 29th, 2009

Filed under: General,Pictures — Karl Olson @ 2:54 pm

It’s not the ridiculous freebies (though working on the anime companies to get rid of their old single DVD backstock as a bag stuffer would be slick, just like how they got rid of their VHSes back in the day) it’s not the elements that blatantly crossover anyway (late-night parties with crazy dancing, great music, awesome sociable people, and the like are welcome at any nerdy con, and are in full effect whether you’re at I/O, PAX or any anime con,) no it’s more simple than that.

You see, the Google I/O badge had a little schedule guide w/ map jammed right in the back of the badge, and you could easily fold it over to the section of the schedule you were probably there for anyway (like Android panels or OpenSocial Panels.) Now, maybe you couldn’t quite do it the same way at a big anime con with scads of panels, but putting a simple script on the con’s website that’d allow proactive attendees to print a little list of all the panels they wanted to hit that they could jam in back of their pass would be super convenient.

Oh, and the self check-in option at would be neat to replicate as well. It could dramatically drop the wait time in lines for pre-registered guests at least, and at large cons like AX or Otakon, wouldn’t be much if any of a cost burden. If anything, you may be able to free up volunteers for more pressing business.

PS: Check out the first round of Google I/O media from me, namely photos.

I wear my stunna glasses at Computer Stop, so I can, so I can, look at expensive 3D monitor effects in the afternoon.

Meanwhile, I am going to Google I/O in San Fran as I am an Android Developer, and the company is paying for it. One of these years, I won’t end up going to a con unexpectedly.

Oh, and someone did a video for an old song of mine that I should probably do fresh vocals on. NintendoNerr bevideoifies “He’s Homsar”.

album cover / initial work complete

The album maybe effectively done. I just need to road check the master (listen to it in the car while the car is in motion.) If I’m happy with it, it goes to the replicators. Album cover after the break.

A comic about my current situation

Needless to say, I’m now busting my can getting stuff square. It’s gonna be “get the apartment, move in, go to school.” So much for having breathing room, not that the weather would have afforded me any anyway. I’d have been packed faster though.

And oh man, it’s going to be sweet to have basically a bed, computers/printer, a table for computers/printer and some tubs o’ clothes. Maybe some small electrics (rice cooker would be good to have, electric razor will come with, hopefully the apartment has a microwave.) By sweet, I imagine I’ll be up to Seattle on the weekends as time affords to get some other stuff down (like a dish set/silverware set.)
