celeste_ @ : VAMPS live in Portland! July 20th at the Hawthorne!
(It's not *exactly* anime-related, but since the singer's other band has done lots of anime theme songs...)The Hawthorne Theater presents VAMPS!
This rock band is a collaboration between legendary Japanese artists HYDE (vocalist for L'Arc~en~Ciel) and K.A.Z (of Oblivion Dust and hide with Spread Beaver).
July 20, 2009 - The Hawthorne Theatre
These guys are no strangers to selling out *massive* arenas all over Japan and the rest of the world. Seeing them in an awesome small venue like The Hawthorne Theatre is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that should not be missed. Tickets are on sale now!http://www.vampsxxx.comhttp://www.myspace.com/vampsofficial

tabyk @ : Also trying to get rid of stuff...
I am currently in a purge process as I might be moving soon, and I've tons of junk I know I don't need, but am in a bit of a quandary on this particular one.
Might anyone have a suggestion or two?

chinadoll66102 @ : Stuff for sale!
You know, it just occurred to me that this would probably a good place to post the fact that I have a lot of japanese stuff for sale. And I mean a freakin' LOT.
Here's an example of what I mean: http://pics.livejournal.com/chinadoll66102/pic/0001k3a4http://pics.livejournal.com/chinadoll66102/pic/0001g00w/ http://pics.livejournal.com/chinadoll66102/pic/0001e05p http://pics.livejournal.com/chinadoll66102/pic/0001cxt6 http://pics.livejournal.com/chinadoll66102/pic/0001p43g
Some of this stuff I won't be selling, (most of it's up for sale) and some of it I already sold, but it's just to give you a general idea of what I have.
I've been collecting since I was 14. I have a bunch of stuff. Kimono (wedding one too) japanese shoes and other accessories, japanese anime music CD's imported from japan, bento box supplies stuff, fabrics, also final fantasy / pokemon stuff, game soundtracks (RPG mainly...FF7-11 I think), etc. etc.
Problem is, it's all in boxes right now, so it takes a whole bunch of time to load this stuff out and go through it.
Here are some recent things I've posted:http://portland.craigslist.org/mlt/for/1024263473.htmlhttp://portland.craigslist.org/mlt/hsh/1022668969.htmlhttp://portland.craigslist.org/mlt/bks/1024279140.htmlhttp://portland.craigslist.org/mlt/clt/1024286317.html
I know this is a crappy post and pretty vague, but for the next few weeks I will be selling a lot of stuff. All in Portland, of course. I'm also being' really generous with the prices TBH (trust me!)- I just want to move this stuff out :)
If you want to see the posts, I will be specifically putting in 'Ardenwald' in my location (small unknown suburb area over by Johnson Creek) and look for, obviously, anything Japanese.
But yeah. Go nuts! Or contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org if there's anything you want but don't know if I have.

suki_no_love @ :
Hey, I heard people in this live journal community meet up once a month at someone's house and watch anime all night? Is this is the right place? I was recommended by the Anime Club at Portland State University.

blackjackrocket @ :
How does one go about affixing a logo to a shirt? It's for a cosplay--I'm going as a Team Rocket agent from Pokémon and I need the giant red R all up ons.
And it needs to look professional, like a standard-issue uniform. And I'd like it if it didn't wear off after a few washings.
I...um...also need advice on styling a wig. It's a very basic style
, just brushed over to the side, but I've never worked with a wig before and I hardly do anything to my *own* hair besides pull it back.

blackjackrocket @ :
So I'm going to an anime convention in two weeks and both my costumes are partially busted. Problems are that a, I can't sew, and b, one of them I think I'd need to wear while someone else sewed it up anyway.
Is there any way one of you could give me a hand with those? On the big one it's ripped seams in both legs (it's a jumpsuit), and the minor one has a rip on the fastener (it's a trenchcoat).
I'm looking to pay maybe 10$/hour, but it shouldn't take more than three hours to do both of them.

ludekat @ : Hmm Milk Tea?
Ok, so I've been searchign for awhile, and I figured someone here might know. I was wondering if anyone here knew of a place where I could get strawberry milk tea juice boxes in the Clackamas area. Uwajimaya might carry it, but thats a lil far. =/ I miss my milk tea. /sob I'd also love to know if theres a place to get tayaki, but I think muh chances in that are slim. =o( Thanx for any help! ^_^

giapet @ : Warning: Blatant Pimpage Ahead
A while back I posted here looking for people to beta a new website that I am employed by, and the site has long since gone live (albeit still in "beta" mode). So I thought I'd pop in just to let y'all know: animeOnline
is now officially the coolest anime news site out there. I know, because I write the majority of the content. Mwahaha.
That said, for those of you who favor not having to leave LiveJournal while still getting your constant stream of anime(/manga/J-pop/game/etc) news, we also have an LJ syndicated feed: animeonlinenews
. And hey, our RSS feed no longer sucks! (It used to only show the title of the article, but now it also shows the content of the articles as well.) But here's fair warning - we post a LOT. ;)
So, there you have it. Give us a shot! ♥

blackjackrocket @ :
All you cosplayers out there, where do you buy wigs? I need a short brunet wig for my JP costume (the boy in my icon), and tying my hair back and pinning it up just isn't cutting it. Also, how much should I expect to pay for a wig like that?

mariahgem @ : Platform International Animation Festival

kinsugi @ : Eep: To answer a question,
Eep! I'm never in this forum anymore. To answer motorharp
's question from November:
Our fall Japanese Film Series had good films but few people at that late hour.
However, Winter term days have rocked! We've hosted anime meetings twice a week (8 hr of anime!) to meet people's schedules, and have been showing more than a dozen different anime including two current in Japan at both
meetings: DEATH NOTE and Naruto: SHIPPUUDEN!
We gather Tuesdays 3:30-8:30, ST 235 (Vandread, Ah My Goddess, Ouran HS Host Club, Mushishi + DN and N:S) and Wednesdays 2:30-5:30, SS 116, through March 14 (Wolf's Rain, Slayers, Jing King of Bandits, Fate Stay Night + DN and N:S).
In addition, we managed to pull together three special afternoon events!
(1) Japanese Popular Films (KAMIKAZE GIRLS and SAMURAI FICTION),
(2) Mamoru Oshii's GHOST IN THE SHELL and GitS 2: INNOCENCE, and
(3) Live Action Anime from Japanese TV (i.e. based on manga/anime) GREAT TEACHER ONIZUKA and DEATH NOTE.
Spring term we'll continue regular viewing meetings, probably carrying on most of the anime we're watching now, but the special focus will be on SakuraCon rather than film showings. And classwork. Of course.

welovesimon @ : New Slants' song up!
My all-asian band, The Slants, posted another song tonight (We Will Never Die).
It's a demo version and still needs live drums/vocals, but it kinda gives you a general idea of what we're going for. More songs coming very soon and shows shortly after that, I promise!
25th January 2007
welovesimon @ : All-asian rock n' roll (The Slants)
Your favorite all-asian Portland band...well, probably the only one, has moved to www.myspace.com/theslants
There's only one track right now, an interview with me...but we will be adding songs shortly and look forward to playing throughout the Northwest very soon!

motorharp @ : JAPANESE FILM SERIES
So, I was going to go last night, but ended up tripping over a cord and sloshing boiling tea all over my hand, among many other clumsy things I did that day. I thought it would be better if I did not endanger others, or myself, by venturing out in public. How was the first showing?
