Hiatus!

Notice of Haitus!
So where the hell have I been?
Here's an idea: Geek.Kon 2008
(I'm on staff for PR, Vendors, and Sci-Fi Viewings), creating artwork to sell at my part of the Staff Artist table in Artist Alley for Geek.Kon, I run the Geek.Kon Guild on Gaia Online, I've also got a full time job, I'm moving on August 1st from a 2 bedroom to an efficiency and thus have to get rid of a lot of stuff, switch over utilities, etc., I'm playing the MMO City of Heroes (my global chat handle is @Tira Blue if you'd like to friend me, though I'm not much of a talker while I'm playing) I'm also playing Diablo II: Lord of Destruction on Battlenet with a friend from work (we're gearing up for Diablo III)
Yeah...I've been kind of busy, and so I'm putting the Anime Impressions blog in all its incarnations on hiatus at least until I've finished moving in August. At the latest, it should be started up again by October (as Geek.Kon 2008 will be held September 27 & 28). When it does start up again, I plan to go through my back log of short series, then move on to discussing older series, mostly from before 2000. I'd really like to sit down and watch some of the classics from the 70's and 80's like the original Cutey Honey, Galaxy Express 999, Captain Harlock, Goshogun, Godmars, and other giant robot series, Minky Momo, other older magical girl series, and Science Fiction Saiyuki Starzinger. A lot of these older series are fairly long in length, so the blog may still be a bit spotty when it some to being updated. However, it will be updated! Even if it takes weeks to do so.
You've probably noticed by now that the world, or at least American pop-culture, is steadily becoming indifferent to anime. Companies are cutting back on staff and series (ADV), and others have had their American branches go under completely (Geneon). I, myself, have gotten a bit bored with at least the new stuff, to the point where I didn't even bother to attend the special July meeting for the UW Anime Club featuring old vs new stuff. Thus I intend to return to the good old days that I remember from middle and high school. Once I have the time.
However, the group here on LJ will still be open for anyone wishing to post an anime review or link to their review site.
