Argh, I missed out on the first minute or 2 and have NO blank tapes...I won't be up at 1am, damn first day of Senior year starts tomorrow and I should be awake during class...

I saw myself for a brief moment but I don't care if I wasn't on TV, I want to tape it for the sake of having some good footage!

hey Ranma if you see me and Kitty can you send us a copy if we wire you the cash for shipping and a blank tape? I doubt we're on there but just in case since we're still in our hotel room in new york and theres' no way we could tape it.

Uhm, how long are you going to be in NYC? I was gonna convert it to mpeg and upload it.

Ack! I missed it already?! I thought it wasn't airing for a while or something . . . I'll definitely be needing that MPEG from you, please. ^^

I have it on vhs if anyone's really desperate---but I don't have two vcr's hooked up to copy it at the moment, it is a rather short piece anyway...

Hi everyone. I couldn't make it to AXNY but I wanna do my part. :)

Here's the CNN coverage of AXNY. I have it in several formats:

RealVideo Small (160x120) 1.9 megs (http://www.divideby0.com/~oscarc/axny/axny-cnn-small.zip)

RealVideo Large (320x240) 10.8 megs (http://www.divideby0.com/~oscarc/axny/axny-cnn-large.zip)

MPEG (352x240) 32.5 megs (http://www.divideby0.com/~oscarc/axny/axny-cnn.mpg)

For you modem people grab the small version. It's very viewable, though the sound is a little watery.

Grab the RealVideo large file to see TV quality version of the video.

For you video nuts (like me ;) who want to make a VCD or for long term archiving, grab the high quality MPEG file.

If you are grabbing multiple files, please download them one at a time. My poor dsl line can only take so much. :)

I won't be keeping these files around too long, maybe a month. If someone wants to host it for longer then that, just grab it and post the link.

It looked like a lot of fun, I wish I was there. :)

Oh, legal disclamier: This video clip is copyright CNN and AOL/Time Warner. I am providing this video clip under the "fair use" clause of US copyright law. I am not profiting off this video clip so please don't sue me.

PS: what does Arron Brown mean at the end...?

Thanks to SoulCrash for providing a mirror for the MPEG file. Try this link, it might be faster.

OMFG!!! that was the funniest news report about anime I ever seen... So far, I only saw Ranma in the whole report for just like 2 sec. I'm not sure for anybody else..

Anyway, I got the mpeg version on my server right now

I was cosplaying Sumomo of Chobits [not the one that actually announced who she was... the one who obviously didn't realize she was being taped and looked oh-so-stoopid-and-confused] XD

ZiggyB, thanks so much for ripping that video!

I thought that was a really good segment. They did a pretty balanced job of explaining anime for those who are unfamiliar with it.

I would have liked to see them mention the primary difference between Japanese and American animation - that Japanese animation is targeted towards a much wider age range and is usually more mature in nature.

I think the number one misconception about anime is that it's a bunch of people obsessed over kids' cartoons!

Also it was great seeing a lot of you guys in the video! :D

ZiggyB
09-09-2002, 08:05 AM
You're welcome. Yah, I thought it was an ok segment. But I think the "Star Trek" thing instantly made it sound a little weird... oh wait it is a little weird. ;)

Yah, it's one of those end of the show stories, you're not gonna get too much detail. It was probably this or show a cuddly kitten being rescued. :>

article...grrr....>.<.... it was an article that came out in feb. and it was based on darcy and scott and BAAF 2001 and cosplay, it was horrible! it compared us to treckies and basically made cosplay look stupid, the only reason i bought it was because there was a picture of me in it^.^

Galaxia, join the NYO Cosplay ML and you'll find it there. I haven't uploaded it here yet.

Sailor-Moon, I talked to Darcy about that 2 weeks ago... A lot of that wasn't even supposed the be in the article! Hell, they were pressured into it and if they didn't comply, he wouldn't have published the story. And if you want, I"ll e-mailyou the entire chat we had on that. .

Mwerg? oO >.< Well, there's worse things you can be compared to than a Trekkie. Besides which who are we to criticize their fandom? Although I understand that people use the comparision in a negative way . . . anyway, I'm interested to see the article, if anyone could email it or something . . .
