    Top 10 List #17: Ways I'm horribly old-school

    Just on the topic of mobile phones, I'd say they're pretty essential these days. For some, it's hard to go back on having messages in your pocket. That doesn't mean a phone would outright replace your social life, oh no, but…

    Thirded on self-driving cars. Technology can fail and when that happens we're in trouble if there's no human ingenuity to back things up.

    And the thought of self driving cars frightens me and is a sure sign of the apocalypse.
    I agree with this. And to be honest, what's the point of having a car if you're not going to drive, haha. I also agree that cars don't need a lot of gadgets, there's a place for everything, and having a huge display with stuff in my car... Looks awkward. Only if you had, a stereo and GPS, that's enough for me. I'm always going to be a fan of light cars, without any kind of confort, just made to be fast and noisy. But, comfortable sedans are just great for long trips, and some of them look amazing. It's really hard to choose a kind of car for me, being honest.

    Well crap, and it doesn't look like there's any way to opt-out of it either.

    Guess I should select some random region just so I'm not randomly stuck with the cesspool that is Hoenn...

    Still, York County, SC best region. And nothing will change my loyalty. #qualityinncarowindsislovequalityinncarowindsislife

    -Why do you like Quality Inn so much?
    I think it started with their '90's logo which I always found classy with its black and gold colors:

    Nowadays, it's because of the price/value quotient. The Quality Inns I've stayed at have, for the most part, been good properties that have also been affordable. Yes, I've stayed in better hotels, like Embassy, Hampton, and Marriott, but they're also much more expensive. And, I just got back from an anime convention at a $250-$300 water park resort in Ohio where the rooms actually weren't as good as two of the local Quality Inns/Suites I use as "staycation" getaways.

    Of course, it could also have to do with staying in so many Quality Inns as a kid and not having any particularly negative experiences with any of them.

    -Favorite cosplay?
    Ooh, tough one. I'm gonna go with one of my newer cosplays (debuted at a con in April in SC) of an obscure character/series: Saki Mizukoshi from Natsuiro Kiseki:

    I like the style of the uniforms and cosplaying as a blond tsundere is always fun The show itself I found to be a very enjoyable as a short, relaxing series that few know about and even fewer cosplay from. I'm trying to bring recognition to the series and look cute at the same time haha
    The skirt on my Leaf cosplay (recently retired) didn't look terribly accurate. However, if you ask my friends in the NC/SC con scene, they'll tell you I'm best known for my Sailor Mercury cosplay xD Serena (old, X/Y game look) is the newest addition to my cosplay lineup.

    -What do you want Game Freak to do next with Pokemon?
    Pokemon girls fashion game! The outfit customization in X/Y was almost a game unto itself, but it still lacked in variety. Anything where I can put Leaf into a ballerina outfit, Dawn in a maid outfit, and Serena in a wedding dress would be a major winner for me.

    Part of me also wants to see a game where the "evil team" is a huge investment company involved in securities fraud and their boss is a Bernie Madoff-like character. A lot of the minigames would involve financial investigation and detective work.

    And cars. Cars should be a viable mode of transportation in a Pokemon game. Especially large station wagons with the fake wood on the side.

    Top 10 List #15: Favorite Anime Idols

    That's a lot of freaking time to spend on that.

    Also, Maki #1 but no Nico in the top 10? This list is clearly and wholly unscientific. :P

    I don't think I know enough anime idols to even have a top ten myself, though, haha.

    That's more discounted passes than the largest convention in my area gives out for TOTAL passes, sweet mercy. Though the one local to me has deliberately capped out attendance at 5000 this year to try to keep the experience enjoyable rather than having attendees feeling like they're being crammed into the convention hotel like sardines.
    Well, it is the biggest anime-centered convention on the East Coast (eastern cons larger than Otakon are multi-genre events like NYCC and Dragoncon), and as I type this less than 5700 of those slots remain and it's only been open for about a week. Total attendance is capped at 35,000. Based on last year though, I think they could cut it to 30,000 or even 25,000 - it was VERY crowded.
