i had a question about the main event tickets. i purchased Lisa Concert tickets then printed out the ticket thing will that be it or will i need to scan it at AX to get the real ticket like we do with the badges? hope it made sense.
I would say check with the AX information desk, or when you pick up your badge at the registration desk booth, you can ask them if the print out is good enough. (Be sure to bring the printed copy with you when you are inquiring at the desk, and to print out 2-3 copies just in case, one gets lost.)
It would be interesting if the bad joke panel really is the Roasting of Marc Perez...
If that Marc Perez panel is indeed real, and it is a "roasting", then I don't think too many fans would show up. (Or if they do, it's because they have serious issues with his SPJA leadership.) His associates would certainly show up, and they would most likely clap, cheer & laugh at any of his jokes, but many of the fans won't. (His associates may try to entice the crowd to laugh & cheer with them, but if it's not funny, the audience isn't going to laugh, no matter what they do.)
And unlike the AX forums, you can't control/censor what the fans in the audience are going to think & say when it is "Live". (You'll also have a mass exodus of fans in the audience, if they keep getting kicked out for expressing their concerns, or they aren't laughing hard enough at his jokes.)
Hmm..Maybe they could even put "Ren-tan" & Peter Ngo to be the cheerleaders in the front, and have them both hold up a big cue sign to the audience that says "Laugh", "Cheer", "Applause", or "Standing Ovation".
As I said before, the fans didn't come to AX see Marc Perez. They came to see anime, manga, cosplay, and the various anime & manga guests of honor.
A "roasting" event like this should have been held at the SPJA office, or behind closed doors. It is really a bad idea to do this in public. (I don't know if this is some sort of "damage control" thing to repair Marc Perez's image among the fans.)
But then again, there is the possibility that this panel is not real, and it was just written as a "temporary filler".
On things of a different note....
Just as a quick reminder to everyone.
If your cosplay gathering is located in the South Hall entrance, and it is on the very same time as the car rally course race, (Which will pass by the South Hall entrance) it will be really, really LOUD
. It will be so LOUD
, that you will not be able to hear the instructions of the cosplay gathering leaders. (At last year's X-Games, the sound of the racing cars could be heard for blocks away, and some of the crew were wearing ear plugs.)
Also, the cars leave a very big trail of dust, and that dust of smoke WILL
hit the South Hall entrance.
It is strongly recommended to check the X-Games schedule, to see if there is a car rally race going on at the same time as your cosplay gathering. If your gathering is on the same time as the car race, you can also opt to move out of the South Hall entrance, and find another alternate location.
