Yeah, it's been going on during AX for a few years at least. I've always wanted to go. One of my friends is supposed to help design some of the costumes. It looks really awesome and the costumes are really amazing.

The Labyrinth Masquerade ball looks like a lot of fun. I may give it a try since I've always wanted to go to one of these. It's in the area so why not? I love any excuse to wear a fancy giant dress.

Some of my friends really like that event, in past years they have spent some time at AX and some time there. I've heard good things about it (but never been to it).

Sheesh. You know when you are speaking in a page that is affiliated with AX, it never looks good, and it's totally unprofessional to drop the F-bomb when you are representing a company in an official capacity.

Here's the excerpt from DJ "meishismile":

http://otakulife.net/stuff/AX_LOL.png

Quote:

meishismile:


I'm playing AX Dance at the United States' largest anime convention this year, Anime Expo! I'll be representing Maltine records and Zoom Lens. More details TBA soon! I look forward to meeting a lot of new people and spreading my message across the dance floor!

FUCK REAL LIFE, ANIME IS REAL LIFE.
The DJ is also being highly irresponsible for trying to encourage underage attendees to come to this dance party at AX after hours & during the curfew time.

Here's another quote from the DJ "meishismile":

Quote:
After 11pm however, the dance is only 18+. It is extremely unlikely they'll be able to kick out such a large crowd, so be safe and just show up before 11 if you are not of age.

Also, encouraging underage attendee to sneak in after the curfew time is illegal under the law. (The DJ can potentially get AX into trouble with the police for this.)


And another quote from DJ "meishismile":
Quote:

Be advised when entering the dance, standard club procedures will ensue (basically hide all your drugz well...)

So he's not only encouraging underage kids to break the curfew, he's asking them to hide the drugs as well. (Oh boy, the DJ is really asking for the LAPD to go undercover & have a surprise drug bust at the party. He's going to make AX look really "good". So good, that it may end up as news in the Los Angeles Times newspaper.)


I wonder if the DJ even knows that some of the AX attendees & cosplayers are Police Officers, Paramedics and Firemen? Probably not. You know, Mr. DJ "meishismile", if you haven't gotten their attention about the dance party before, you certainly have their attention now.

I'm on tumblr a lot and I also follow AX's blog so I saw that post with meishismile right when it was posted (I didn't think it'd show up here). But here's my thoughts:

1. The F word on tumblr is not a new thing. It's overused to the point that I barely even notice it anymore when I'm reading posts. Blog names are even "f__yeah(insertsubjecthere)" It is at least a 13+ site and considering that the post was originally the DJ's personal's tumblr and not directed to any person, I think that is fairly acceptable (even if it's crude).

2. Personally I think AX should not have reblogged that post since that that DJ was kinda pushing it with the "hide your drugs" and the "if you're under 18" comment. It would be best if the DJ's personal comments were kept to his own blog, since it probably would not have cause much of a scene and that info would just circulate with his own followers. Unfortunately, we don't get to choose who re-blogs our posts on tumblr. AX should generally be careful with what they post/how they post it. If they wanted to promote the DJ, It would probably be easier with a summary and a link to the main post and with some possible warnings (or decide to not post it at all).

3. I'm thinking the DJ is a guest, and not exactly a staff? Although his post was kind of crude, it's not necessarily all that uncommon on tumblr (heck I see posts on how to get away with murder). But it does blur the line between being okay or not okay with his profession. However, he does seem like a pretty popular DJ and people seem to like his music.

Here's the difference though.

If he were start his own rave at a different party at some nightclub, and he cussed like that, it probably wouldn't raised too many eyebrows.

But if he's going to be the sole DJ, (As he's claiming) at the AX Dance Party, the party actually reflects on AX. People will associate with AX with that dance party.

His post wasn't about a private small party at a private nightclub. (If that were the case, then noone would really care what he wants to do.) However, his post was about a very public AX Dance Party. (His posts does reflect on AX.) It also wasn't an opinion post. His post was very specific about what he was planning to do at the AX dance party.


Also, while cussing is not a crime, (Even though it shows a tremendous lack of professionalism) sneaking in illegal drugs, and willfully sneaking in underaged kids during curfew hours are illegal.

And I do not think Marc will condone sneaking in illegal drugs & underage kids after hours into the party. (Which is what the DJ was encouraging.) It's stuff like that can get people fired on the spot. It's also breaking the law.

I also don't think the AX staffers will relish the idea of explaining to the police, or the parents as to why there were minors after hours, and people were secretly doing drugs during the dance party. It's the kind of attention that AX doesn't need right now. (I'm sure that the LA Convention Center or the J.W. Marriott won't be too happy about it either.)


Yes, I believe the DJ may be a guest of AX. (Who is showing some very poor taste.)

In the long run though, it doesn't matter how popular the guy is. What he was encouraging was wrong and illegal.

Personally, AX should start looking for a replacement DJ for the dance party.

Yes, I agree. It's nothing big anymore, and If you still do get highly offended by the word fuck? Then hello, yes, everybody says it. If you say you don't, I'm almost completely sure you're lying. Hell, my blog has the world 'Fuck' right in the middle of the title. But still, as a professional? Seems a little harsh. And I need to agree, why are you advertising drugs and underage kids to go to a rave? ((Regardless if you call it a dance, a party, a rave or just a DJ hanging out, its inappropriate.)

Quote:

True, and I think AX could have simply kept it under the spotlight instead of reblogging it like that. I try to refrain as much as possible from cursing or 'lewd and inappropriat ' comments whenever I type, but it's hard when saying the F word has been common in my house and in my vocabulary since the age of eight.

Quote:
3. But it does blur the line between being okay or not okay with his profession. However, he does seem like a pretty popular DJ and people seem to like his music.
Still, it's like...say Jurassic Park as a reference possibly. You love dinosaurs, but would you want to spend the night in a room with someone who said 'Hey, lets genetically build dinosaurs then accidentally let them run wild.' Or hell, being the guy who said they didn't need boats for if the Titanic sank. If something happens to a minor, do you think he wants to get held accountable?

I don't know what I'm even saying anymore.

Talk about bad taste. I heard about it about 30 minutes after it happened. It will be dealt with today. When I have more info I can share, I will comment more.

Thanks for pointing it out!
