AnimeFest 2014: The Fun Never Stopped

I haven't even steeped foot onto the premises, and already the mania and excitement of Anime was bursting at the seams. With everything going on with the news lately, a little escapism can do the psyche some good.

AnimeFest is Coming Back to Dallas - Bring on the Cosplay

So the summer season is a total wash. Our favorite TV shows won't return from hiatus until fall. Things are getting pretty crazy in politics and in world news. Weather is out of control. Concert tickets are getting pricier and summer movies are becoming more lame. August isn't exactly what I would call a slam dunk month for events that happen in DFW. But when events do happen, why not take advantage when the opportunity arrives?

REVIEW: What Really Happened at Oak Cliff Film Festival 2014

REVIEW: What <i>Really</i> Happened at Oak Cliff Film Festival 2014

I'm a fan of film. I could name you several films off the top of my head, the type of genres, and argue your face off about what they should or should not have done in the movie. However, I've never made a film. I've never written a screenplay. Nor, have I ever directed anybody, hustled for funds, actors, locations, or equipment.
