Im most likely going... its in my neck of the woods

I might be going. All depends on when my graduation is and who goes and if I can get a ride and room. Since it takes a few hours to get to Richmond from where I live. x_x So unless I can convince some friends to go, get a ride, and get in a room for cheap, I doubt I'll go. lol But I would like to try at least.

I was actually thinking about it; it's close enough to where I live, and it's probably the only con I'll get to go to over the summer before Otakon. Anyone been before? What's it like? ^_____^

i didnt go last year, but from what i've heard alot of what was wrong last year was b/c of poor managing on the cons part. But this year they say alot of the stuffs under new management so it should be better. Gotta start training for the DDR tournament... grrr i will dominate... maybe

just for sat and sun though...senior portfolio is due on the 28th *shudders at the thought*

I went last year and loved it-- had a blast. Though if Lizzy isn't going I will feel lost and alone and... roommate-less, significantly. Need to find some people to stay with, if I go.

I may go, depends on everyone else though, haha, well also depends on a few other details. I wouldn't go by myself though. It's a great con since it's cheap ($30 to register and under $90/night for the hotel) plus it had (and hopefully still has) Anime Whose Line!

I still can't beleive I daytripped that con considering I live in the state capital... for a different state.

ainslye
01-14-2004, 06:19 PM
Anime Who's Line... Stu, we so rocked that.

Ok, Stu, you wanna go the whole weekend, this time? So I don't have to wander around the hotel yelling "Stuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu"... though it was good because it birthed you a new name. ^^

and Natalie, we could stay together-- would be fun ^^

Stueypark
01-14-2004, 07:13 PM
If I go, it would be for the whole weekend and luckily I found out the main commitment issue I thought I had, is actually 2 weeks prior to this, so as it is, so far I could go! Now all I need is a job...

ooooh, you got 444 posts, it's kinda like living on the same street as the devil. You know, going to his 4th of July BBQ, occasionally getting his mail by accident.

01-14-2004, 08:57 PM
*hurries up to post more* I don't want the devil's mail. He probably gets too many credit card apps.

madhatterr104 - I'd love to do FILTH with you again but I really don't know if I can go or not. I'd need both a ride and a room. It takes like practically 3 hours to get to Richmond from where I am because of traffic and whatnot. Ugh. So, it all really depends on if I can find someone to ride me to the con and back home. ^^; I live in the Rockville area of MD.

madhatterr104
01-18-2004, 09:18 AM
i can't help with the ride (sorry :( ), since im in va beach..but as for the hotel, if u don't mind staying with me and my mom (she's my ride and also wants to see the dealers room, ect. ^^) and i think jen is staying with me too ^^
the more the merryer! weee!
i hope u can come! and keep asking around for a ride..lol.

Lyn
01-19-2004, 07:18 PM
Thanks. ^^ I'll keep that in mind. I'd love to room with you. I'll get back to you after Katsucon on what my chances of going are. Right now I have no clue. Gotta convince one my local con-goer friends into going to this one. Specifically, one with a car. x_x;

Ganesh
01-27-2004, 08:22 PM
I might be going...several of my friends (Drake and others) finish high school that friday and have senior week..we decided to ditch the rednecks/popular people at school going to some beachy place for the senior trip and are looking at going on a road trip to this con, Ladysmith Rennfest and Bush Gardens...right now its just an issue of planning.

NekoZidane
01-28-2004, 08:10 PM
I went last year and it was a really great con. The biggest problems had to do with an irate man who didn't relish the idea of "freaks" running around the hotel all night, potentially keeping him awake.
As many of you know, it's cool to smoke in the hotels there, considering it literally neighbors a Phillip Morris idustrial park. He had a big problem with this, and got up in my face and threatened me. I told him to go pork himself, and he went to a staffer and complained. He then made the biggest mistake of his life.

He threatened the founder/owner of AMA, who didn't take too kindly to it.

Well to make a long story short, it turns out he worked in the upper echelons of the hotel company and wound up losing his job due to "an unbecoming demeanor towards paying guests/covention staff.

All is well, see you there this summer.

Lyn
01-28-2004, 08:19 PM
Not sure if I'll be going anymore...since I might be at Animazement that weekend instead. ^^; Sorry, I just know more people going to that and I have a possible ride and room. Though there's still a chance I might not be able to go, in which case I'll definently still go to AMA. Sucks that they're the same weekend this year.

Natalie- we might want to go the route of 2 rooms. Stu is going with us (I'm not giving you a choice, Stu, you said yes once and you arent allowed to back out now) and I don't know how your mom would be with that...lol... and I'm triyng to convince Lizzy to go, too. LIZZY you HAVE to go to AMA!! No option!! Last year we stayed with Reiko, Monoyasha and Hyper... are they going again, too? We should all try for rooms near each other, maybe one person can reserve a few rooms? I call not b!tch as I'm always the one doing the reservation crap. ^_^

madhatterr104
01-29-2004, 07:17 PM
jen-*nods* getting rooms next to each other would be cool...but don't be suprised if i try to sneak in your room (after all i heard about the neko orgy, i wouldn't want to miss it again, would i? XD )
so, got any cosplay ideas? im too tired to think right now..lol.

lyn- i reallllly hope you go to AMA..im going to be soo sad if i end up walking the con alone in filth kyo..i hope other jrockers will be there..*sigh* (and just remember that if u need to, you have a room with me) ^^

Last year's problems were more caused by the hotel than the convention staff. That's why they changed hotels. I heard there were bedbugs, but I stayed at a nearby Day's Inn, so I didn't have any such problems. It was fun, though. I wrote a report (http://darkseam.com/Info/Events/2003_-_AMA_3_report.html) about it. 100% true, honest!

Edit: You know, after reading over my report, I've come to realize that it won't actually give you a good idea of how AMA is. It could've taken place at any con.

Why must I always whore myself out so?

i'll be booking our room soon. sorry nat!! but, i have a feeling with all our stuff and ddr-ness, we'll take up one room with the 3 of us (me, jen, stu). we've been trying to figure it out and it seems for the best. me so sorry!

What is walky talky tag? if its fun count me in


Basically, we all brought walky talky's to the con last year. Met up w/each other, and got bored.

SO we decided that since the hotel was basically like a huge MAZE of DOOM, that we'd play a game! After some talking, we teamed up, turned on the walky talkies (synched up different channels for each team) and ran around the hotel acting like Ninja's ^_^*

The Agent names actually spawned from the games of Tag. Our code names were based on our costumes at the time, and the rest is history!

Lol thanks ^_^ I actually started working on them early last year, doing all the sketches and buying all the materials and such (Although I found a place now that sells silk satin that I want to replace the red synthetic satin that I have, because I can actually dye that instead of having to paint the pattern on. uber expensive though 0.0; I'm gonna have to wait until their annual sale on the 3rd of July to buy it.) I was actually trying to have them for Otakon last year, though I doubt I'll have them by Otakon this year... maybe for Neko... I've been working on beading every now and then though... (long seed bead trim is very time consuming to make! lol)

I won't be impressed until I see this (http://eshiron.s19.xrea.com/) Robin. (translated (http://www.pick.ucam.org/~tjm35/robimanga/))

I got my double-bed room earlier this month (almost three weeks ago). I wouldn't be surprised if they had finally run out of that variety. Kings really only go when the doubles are all booked.

One thing to try is this: You've already got a room with a King, right? That's your backup. You call the hotel about an hour before the cancellation deadline (usually 5 or 6pm the day before) and ask if they have any rooms with double beds, because sometimes people have to cancel. If they do, you just switch your reservation to the double bed room. You can also try earlier, like the day before that, as others may try this strategy, but also try in the final hour, because some people wait till then to cancel their room.

Just a random thought: How long do you think it'll take before this con gets it's own section on the forums, and not just another illegitimate child of "other".

I mean, does it go by attendance, or is there a mafia payoff involved, cause this con is one of the best on the coast.

I have no clue and have been wondering about that mysekf. I was surprised when i first saw that nekocon had it's own section on the forum.

03-26-2004, 07:18 PM
i think ama is still TOO small to have it's own section right now. not many people go to it or know about it really (even though their own section would help, i think). i like that fact that not everyone is jumping on for this con. it's a time for all of us to chill and get to know each other better and meet new people. i dunno about you guys, but at cons like neko, katsu, otakon and so on... i don't have time or even a thought process to sit down and just talk. ama allows that. ^^

i know that last year ama made everyone closer. i gained so many friends from it. lol

NekoZidane
03-26-2004, 08:29 PM
True but I think we had time at Neko to kinda chill out, but mebbe that was just me...

The main reason I loved AMA so much is that it only had about 1,300 people there. It sounds like a lot, but in a hotel, it's pretty tame. It gave us time to relax, swim, make calm, collected plans, and actually meet some new people that you'd run into again. Not like Otakon where you meet someone and the following year you see them pass you and say, "Now that guy/girl looks really familiar.... Hmmmm."

And now I trail off into obscurity.

They should make a sub-section for smaller cons. Then at least the threads for all the smaller cons would be better organized.

I'm randomly wondering about the con's events and such, and I just realized: Plushie Con.

Plushie Con was a couple of friends who like their plushies telling random stories that were sometimes completely unrelated to plushies. (This was in a hallroom on the 1st floor/doom level 4 of AMA last year.)

If AMA staff'll let some guys get a panel just by rambling on about work, money and fake Ein plushies, it's only a matter of time until Agent Con is a dream realized.

I think I'll make badges if I can find a laminater at the flea market.

40 situps a night every night until the con. (Zidane was thin; I am not.)
Walking at least one mile everyday. (Zidane could use a better butt.)
The occasional DDRMax2 workout mode at 600 kCal. (No clever comment here.)

I think my goal is to not have to be too self-conscious when in the tight lil pants.

Nuff said.

NekoZidane
04-20-2004, 09:08 PM
Well, the idea isn't to be buff. It's to be not-fat. It doesn't help that I have no upper body strength whatsoever. (Long torso, short legs.) But I've managed to do my situps every day so far. I might be able to lose some weight. We'll see.

And keep an eye on that trainer. If he wants your wife/girlfriend/video games, he can take them, just like The Rock as Nick Cattrell on SNL.

6 rounds of DDR, 50 turning crunches (they're easy), 20 regular crunches, 20 push-ups, 50 more turning crunches, 20 more regular crunches, 10 of those pushups where you keep your hands together (hard, but I only do 10), light weight lifting, then shower. Every night since Spring 2003. I've lost 5 pounds. Of course, the intent wasn't to lose weight, it was to build muscle. My stomach muscles are tight now, so it doesn't bother me to suck in my gut any more, and that's what really counts.

The push-ups are the only part that never gets any easier. You'd think all that typing would have built up my arms quite a bit, but it's done nothing for them. Swimming is good excersize.

I think mebbe they were due for a renovation or two. Maybe it's just me, but if I'm paying money NOT to sleep in my own bed, I'd like it to be staph-free.

Yes, I agree. I found the comforters that year to be very abrasive and not very comfortable.

Well seeing as how they CLAIM to have new carpeting, I may have to forgo the use of the slippers (that I asked never be spoken of ::sigh::) to test the plushness of this "carpet".

Of course, nothing short of felt shag rugs, have ever been to the taste of my tootsies.

Ahem.


New carpeting maybe, but those tiles and linoleum may not be good for your feet (or anything else... >_>) . Who knows where the rash came from!

Hell, we might as well get you the Pope-Mobile.

Tora, do you think that Master Amarant would want to give up his comfortable, stylish, and need I remind you, expensive limo for such a crude vehicle as the popemobile??

That turreted pinto may be good enough for a leader of men, but not for a leader of Agents!

but amarant, i thought you were going to be basically at the art show most of the con. i figured you'd stay with us for thursday nite and then be with all your art show buddies friday morning until sunday afternoon. interesting. well, at least your thursday nite will be nice and comfy!!!!

oh, and i guess this means stu gets to sleep on the floor. amarant hates sharing beds. i think he's got the same problem tora has. ^^

The room is a single/double, if he gets the only bed that puts everyone else on the floor.

Maybe Amarant should sleep in the car, afterall, he knows how clean that is but the hotel room might have all sorts of... "filth" all over.

Not just a condom.

It was used.
*bleah*

We didn't touch it.

Thinking back, shoulda complained louder and gotten even more of a discount. We got one for it taking over 5 hours to get into our rooms due to lock malfunction or something. *shrug*

but that's just nasty.

O.O; You guys definately should have complained...

dizzylizzy
05-04-2004, 01:20 AM
well, we did get A LOT knocked off for the room for the whole delay of getting into the room. they swore up and down that there was nothing wrong with the room key (electronic) and basically said that we didn't know how to operate it. we had to get 3 different keys (or was it more jen?) to try. the last time, they FINALLY called the maintanence guy, who was awesome and started fixing the lock. he gave us a room across the hall. looking back now, we should have stayed in that room. >> we decided not to because the # to the room was the police id # for a murder. O.o

so yeah.... we did meet "that guy!" while waiting. ^^but yeah... we figured after getting the huge discount, PLUS getting tired of moving around and stuff... we just left it (all of "it") alone.

at least everything else was clean! i heard some peeps had bed bugs. O.o i dunno about you, but i'll take the thing under my bed before i get bitten in my sleep. >>

makes me wonder what would have happened if we did say something. dunno if they'd believe us... maybe think we put it there... us crazy con goes.

and let's not forget about getting in trouble for being out of our rooms at midnite! so staffer tried to tell me to go to bed. me=25 at the time. i'm like, excuse me? lol ainslye was there! honestly, i can't believe i said soemthing back to the guy.

him- ::cocky manner::do you have rooms?
me- tch, yeah.
him- then go to them
me- i will in a minute, jesus christ
him- ::about to walk down the stairway:: what was that?!
me- i said 'jesus christ'. whatever.
::Walk away while the guy watches us::

did we go to our rooms? fuck no.
were we playing tag and prob caught? lol most likely. ::snickers:: hey, everyone was up anyhow. it's a hotel con! lmao

::sighs:: good times, good times.

anyone else have some fun stories?

We had a problem with the first room that was given to us too, though I don't remember what it was... maybe it smelled like smoke or something. And to get to it you had to go up this flight of stairs (because there was no elevator in that section of the building) that strongly smelled of urine. Luckily we got our room switched to one on the ground level.


Flute, you were there when they came and told us to go to our rooms right? All we were doing was sitting and talking quietly on the furnature in that downstairs lobby area.

I should have said "Yes Mommy." :rolleyes:

I'm just going to have to locate a place to stay when I get there Saturday aroud 9-10 pm. heck I'll settle for a motel 8 on the side of the highway if I have to. Just as long as I'm not living out of my car at a rest stop again (Otakon 03). Maybe I'll pull some recon that wednesday or thursday. I am about an hour away or more so I can do that. I work all day friday and saturday.

Anyone know of any vegetarian friendly places to eat near the con? I don't know the area that well and I don't think my vegetarain friends want to live on salads and granola bars the entire weekend.

NixKlouD
05-20-2004, 07:22 PM
Well... considering as I'm not vegetarian I don't really know too many places, but I remember Outback Steakhouse has some vegetarian-friendly entrees.
Directions from the con:
Take a right out of the parking lot, then a left on Johnston Willis Dr.
Follow the curve (right) and the road changes to Early Settlers.
Take a left on Robious Road, and follow that through I believe 2 stop lights. Before you get to the major intersection with the train tracks (you'll see what I mean) turn left.
Outback will be in the little area right near Blockbuster, a bank, and Sheetz. ^^

The whole thing's like a 5 minute drive :bigtu:

Umm... I think Subway, El Paso, and Apollos (Italian), all have some vegetarian options, but I'm not sure.
I hope that was of some help! lol

Hello fellow vegetarian! ^_^

Yeah, it would be great to find someplace near the con that has veggy food... the salads and granola bars are all too familar... lol


Hmmm... Outback Steakhouse... Not a place that I would guess on having vegetarian food... I'll have to check that out sometime... ^_^

I know what you mean- especially since "Steak" is in the name, but they're catering an event at my school soon and there was a vegetarian option ^^ Go figure.

If anyone would like directions to the other restaurants as well, just let me know :)

Thanks, NixKloud, for the options. Are the Subway and the Italian restaurant within walking distance? Actually, Outback has 1 or 2 vegetarian things on the menu (the ones in Northern VA do). Not surprising since it's a steakhouse after all.

NixKlouD
05-22-2004, 06:39 PM
No problem ^^ Subway is a lot closer than Apollo's, but it all depends on how long your willing to walk, lol. It takes maybe 5-10 minutes on foot to get to Subway from the con.
To subway: Take a left out of the parking lot, then a right on the... bigger road thingie, lol. If you walk up it just a little ways (a minute probably) there'll be a shopping centre/strip mall on the left side with Toys R Us, the Dollar Store/Tree, and Home Depot. turn there ^^ If you keep walking on that little entrance road to the strip mall, there's a building in the middle of the parking lot- one of the little shops in that off-building is Subway :)

Apollos is right off of Midlothian, but would take 30-some-odd minutes to walk to... actually, the food court at the mall has an italian restaurant (as well as various other types of food)... To get to
Chesterfield Towne Centre: turn left out of the con parking lot, then right on the more busy road thing. If you follow that, the mall is the your left- you can't miss it ^^
Happy eating :p

My costume's all made and ready to go. Finding those boots was a pain. Had to go to 4 different stores to find something passable. I still have to iron a bit, but otherwise I'm ready go. Tomorrow is school, Anime club, pack, go to Liz's.

Alrighty folks, this is my last post before the trip down to Richmond. I hope to see you all there safe and sound. Here's a few of NekoZidane's Words of Wisdom to keep in mind:

1) If you have to take any highways through MD, watch out for cicadas. They make a gooey mess of your windshield, and can get sucked in to the car through an open window. Just don't freak out if one hits you, especially if you're driving.

2) Cops love to pull you over for speeding if you have out of state tags, especially VA cops.

3) DC drivers suck. Sorry to say it, but they do. I watched 2 cars in 2 minutes drive backwards the wrong way up an on ramp to avoid a minor traffic jam on the way to Katsu. Be careful.

4) Mapquest's directions suck. 'Nuff said.

5) Don't forget your bathing suits!!!

And with that, I leave you. See ya on thursday.

i've driven into DC more times than i can count last summer... trust me, I KNOW the suckiness of DC drivers >.<, VA drivers don't know what a turn signal is... neither to PA drives (sorry you guys ^-^; ) and NJ drivers have a problem with what we NJ-ers love to call "Aggresive driving" where in what we consider to be normal driving skills required to survive the NJ turnpike, other states would consider aggresive driving. so with that said, watch out for pretty yellow NJ licence plates, we'll run your ass off the road ^-^;
