Chu At Free Comic Book Day! [VIDEO]
Last weekend (May 6th) I got to go out in the wild to represent Chu! Bam! Pow! for Free Comic Book Day 2017! Yeah! That whole sentence feels weird to me!
I have never been invited anywhere as “Chu” in real life. I’ve always felt very welcome on the internet (thank you guys) but never has what I do ever translated well in real life. Be it trying to explain what I do on YouTube or describing the trials and tribulations of voice acting in my closet, these things are often met with smiles and nods and then left alone. I mean, family members have expressed pride in what I’ve been accomplishing and I have felt very supported! But still I never really felt understood.
So color me surprised when Mr. Dave Raines from Big Show Entertainment Network found me at Colorado Anime Fest 2017 and was genuinely interested in what I was up to. And then invited me out with him to Kapow Comics and Coffee for Free Comic Book Day to do interviews and just be a… Like a guest. Like a celebrity guest?
WHAT IS LIFE.
WHERE ARE WE.
WHO AM I.
So please check out the video linked in this post for an interview with me and some candid, awkward moments!
I may appear wildly uncomfortable (ahahaha I am) but I had a lot of fun! I got to talk to some great people who were wonderful personalities of their own. I got to eat a delicious banananananananana Batman smoothie. I got to meet Bitfaced. I got to get a bunch of FREE COMICS. It was Free Comic Book Day after all! And I look back on that day really positively and hope it’s just the beginning of more fun adventures!
And stay tuned because while I was there, I was able to guest on the Bitfaced Podcast, a really fun pop culture podcast with a bunch of genuinely funny, super nice fellows. I’ll share that link around as soon as I get it!
UPDATE: The Bitfaced Podcast (with me!) is here! Give it a listen and be sure to let Bitfaced know if you’d like me to try it again! LISTEN HERE!
I will work hard to become less awkward in front of a real people camera. I will strive to entertain even when outside of the comfort of my closet. And I will become slightly less of a mole person. These are the promises I make here to you today.
