As you may have already seen, I changed my facebook page to "Cosplay Joe". I made this announcement at the end of my Final Fantasy panel last night at Zenkaikon, and for those of you who were there, you know the mail details. I decided that I won't be doing standup anymore however, I won't be leaving the stage anytime soon. That's because I will be doing anime songs instead! That's right, i'm making the move to singing! This is a decision that I don't make lightly and I will certainly miss doing regular standup. However, I felt that this move would be best for me at this time and chose Zenkaikon in particular to make the announcement because 1, it's near Philly and 2, you guys are so awesome!
But like I said, I won't be leaving the stage anytime soon and in fact, I already have a whole lineup of songs written for my new act! The only downside though, is that they're all Christmas songs so my act will be best suited when it's getting near, or shortly after, Christmas. (and yes, "The 12 Days of Anime Christmas" will be included in that act! ^^) I also said this at the end of my panel and I gave a little preview of one of my songs (because we all know that May is the perfect time for Christmas songs, lol) and as a parody, it seemed to go over well. (especially considering my voice was shot at the time) I also debuted that and another song during my standup @ Jaycon last month and that was a big success. It didn't feel so awkward b/c that was a week before Easter, so maybe that'll be another time i'll perform as well. (near easter) (and i'll have to check and see when eater falls next year, b/c I may do it @ Zenkaikon as well.)
So that was my "big announcement" I was talking about for Zenkaikon. So now, my name is "Cosplay Joe", singer, cosplayer (duh), panelist. And my other accounts will be up as well, I just have to make the appropriate changes and i'll be having a new website up not too long from now, so you'll still get to see my blogs, convention news, website info, cosplay schedules, and the like! And i'll be having a new page on here to reflect these changes. So thank you all and I wish the best for Uncle Yo, +2 Comedy, the Geek Comedy Tour, and all the others. Those guys can take the geek comedy world and I can take the geek singing world!
So see you at a convention near you!
