I was at Anime Expo in either 2005 or 2006 at the Anaheim Convention Center, and I heard rustling in an area of tall plants right outside the convention center. I went to investigate what the rustling was because it wasn’t clear from outside the plants, and found a Sudowoodo cosplayer in the typical Sudowoodo pose standing among the bushes. I started laughing, took a picture, and the Sudowoodo cosplayer ran off to find another spot in the bushes to hide in.
This year (2017), I returned to the Anaheim Convention Center for Pokémon World Championships. It had been 11 years since I’d been there, because Anime Expo moved to a different venue after 2006. I was within around 50 feet from the spot where I found that Sudowoodo cosplayer, and I booted up Pokémon Go because there’s a gym and a few PokéStops right around there.
Lo and behold, I found and captured a Sudowoodo right then and there.
My friends say if I return to the Anaheim Convention Center in another 10 years, perhaps I’ll find a real Sudowoodo next time!
But, somehow I still try to believe that I’m the one for you ‘cause I know all the dirty things you’d like to do. I’m the fear in your eyes, I’m the fire in your flies. I’m the sound that’s buzzing around your head.
fun fact: the jonas brothers played bamboozle in 2006 and 2007 alongside these bands……
fall out boy, panic! at the disco, paramore, my chemical romance, taking back sunday, all-american rejects, motion city soundtrack, underoath, relient k, thirty seconds to mars, saves the day, say anything, linkin park, circa survive, plain white t’s, all time low, dashboard confessional, yellowcard, new found glory, and brand new…….. just to name a few.
basically, the jonas brothers were literally lumped in as just another rock/pop punk band at the time, sooo go ahead and jot that down.
I can't believe MTV asked Cillian about Harry Styles' haircut. I feel so bad for him.
Ha ha. If anyone understands the heartbreak of a haircut it’s Cillian. It was kind of expected and just silly fun. It doesn’t come close to some of the shit he’s been asked at film premieres.
This is one of the worst —> 2006. Toronto Film Festival. Cillian’’s on the red carpet for the premiere of ‘The Wind That Shakes the Barley’, a serious, heartbreaking film. After Cillian explains how much the film means to him the interviewer asks - ‘On the first day of shooting did you bring the Scarecrow mask just to kind of break the ice?’
“My favorite memory of Robin Williams was from Muhammad Ali’s Celebrity Fight Night. I was the em-cee at the benefit dinner/auction, trying to get everyone to take their seats so we could start the show but not having much success. Jim Carrey jumps up on his chair at the head table and says, “Hey!! Do you know who that is? That’s Reba McEntire! Now sit down and shut up!” Robin at the other end of the head table, stands on his chair and says the same thing but in a foreign language! The crowd loved it, laughed and found their seats. I was speechless and in awe of these very talented wonderful men.” - Reba McEntire
RIP, Robin Williams (July 21st, 1951 - August 11th, 2014)

Tell me I’m wrong / You’re wrong. / Why are you doing this? / Because I hate humans with every fiber of my being… and I’ll kill every single one of them… almost as quickly as they’ll try and kill me. / You used to be human. / But not anymore, right? I got sick and now I’m something less than human. Something worthy of extermination.”
HAPPY ANNIVERSARY SONIC THE HEDGEHOG 2006!!
This was the first game I was dying to play, this was the first game I was dreaming of playing ever since I was little. This was really the game that brought my love for sonic closer, this was the game that really made me love him. And I remember the joy and happiness of playing this game for the first time, seeing one of my favorite characters on screen for the first time, for me it was pure happiness. This is definitely the game that is closest to my heart and honestly I don’t think I will ever stop loving it. And this game makes me smile so much and it brings me happiness that no other game can. And with that said I just wanna say that all I wanna do with this post is to bring joy and greatness to the Sonic ‘06 tag on here. I wanna tell people that many do enjoy this game and love it endlessly, many play it because they want to, as for me I’m done with people shitting on this game or on Sonic because of this, it has to end. Sonic isn’t about hating and making shitty memes all the time, it’s about friendship, love and just great things. And I think this game has those good qualities. And as I said i’m really done with the hate this game is receiving so I try to contribute positivity to it in any way I can, because it needs it. So if you’re reading this and like/love this game I’m really happy, we contribute both the happiness and positivity that Sonic deserves.
And also happy birthday to my favorite hedgehog out there! I just wanna say on a quick note that I love him so much, and i’m one of those people who was really happy to have Sonic ‘06 as his first game. And what I said to Sonic '06 applies to him too. Sometimes I feel like people are hating on him or dislike him because of his first game appearence so it’s my job to bring him as much positivity as possible, and i’m very happy doing so. Anyways ending this with a little “sappy-ness”, Silver, I love you and you make me happy and you make me smile and I love you even more for that, you keep on making me happy and i’m glad to have you as my “sunshine”. I LOVE YOU
so yeah, that’s it to wrap it all up. This was a bit long so if you read all of this i’m glad ha ha. Last but not least a happy anniversary to Sonic '06 and a happy birthday to Silver the hedgehog, without them the Sonic franchise wouldn’t be the same.

Eureka isn’t just a town, it’s an idea. A place where intellectual aptitude is celebrated, not ridiculed. Not only is it okay to be smart, geeky, or obsessive… it’s required. Don’t let all the explosions, AI takeovers, and space-time disturbances fool you. Eureka is a damn fine place to live. - Amy Berg (co-executive producer/writer)
