So this weekend I was in Cincinnati for an anime convention that I can’t pronounce and refuse to try and spell. It was a good time. Robotech.com webmaster (and big time weblebrity) Steve Yun and I partied pretty good.
While I was there I met a few other Robotech fans and one in particular who asked, “are you THE Azoric from robotech.com?”
”Yes I am,” I replied.
The eyes of the young man before me widened as he suddenly realized he was in the presence of a real-life weblebrity.
Yes I do like the attention. And when it gets back to me via the internet, I like it even more. You see when TrueGritt1 (his internet name) got home he posted the following on robotech.com.
Not a lot of people know this, but I am quite fameous!
Hey guys. I was at Ikasucon this weekend and I met Steve Yun and Azoric!!!
I was there when Steve presented the new Robotech movie, and it looks cool! I even got my picture taken with Steve!
And then later, at this Giant Robot Battle Panel, that was hosted by Steve, I met Azoric! Two very cool people and it was fun seeing them both. (I took Azoric's picture too.)
It was fun!!!
