My Other Me Gets Funded On Kickstarter

http://youtu.be/dF64evU0AZI

The cosplay documentary My Other Me: A Film About Cosplayers has surpassed its funding goal on Kickstarter and will be getting the funds it needs to battle post production costs and shady film executives. Most of the footage was captured at Sakuracon, Anime Evolution, and Cos & Effect, so if you plunk down $60 on the kickstarter, you might be able to see you and your friends in a movie! Hurry though, there are only 4 days to go!

Vancouver Comic Book Burning, 1954

Even Vancouver wasn’t safe from the moral panics of the 1950s. Over 8000 comics were burned at this rally by the Jaycee Youth Leadership committee in 1954. “No significant improvement” in Youth behaviour was observed as a result of this burning, but it was rallies like these that led to the Comics Code of authority and the lack of diversity in western comics up until the 1990s. I love that in true Vancouver fashion, “Rain dampened the affair”.
