Guests are up BTW.

What would’ve been your cosplay plans for this year’s AX if this year didn’t go to shit?

Yeah that effectively drives away any casual viewer or people who aren't closely following AX. I hope AX bankrupts itself completely this year and sells off to someone else more competent to run the show.
>>
>>10637516

That five dollars would be better spent at a local Asian grocery instead of some woke charity that will pocket everything.

This, what's there to spend money to try and stop mentally ill homeless people from beating up Asian people?

Wow just wow.

I have absolutely zero desire to watch another "livestream" of pre-recorded panels, and even less of a desire to fund AX's tax write-off to an organization with a vacuous mission statement to "dismantle racism and hate" that has yet to concretely identify how it intends to allocate donations
>>
Anyone who pays for these "live" streams is an idiot.
>>
>>10638182
donations probably go to get looters out of jail, I'd save my money

Nah, they're going to purchase a gun for old Asian couples living in LA.

Fuck I wish it was real AX. My whole body is telling me it's that time of year and it sucks that it's not actually happening. I wonder if people are gonna go hang around LA Live anyway despite the lack of a con.
>>
Imagine still living in a covidwoke state at this point
>>
>>10638182
Is that really their mission statement? They'll probably just use the money to buy a billboard and slap on some feel-good empty slogan, then write off the rest as "operation costs". I wouldn't be surprised if the AX management is the ultimate beneficiary behind the charity (or friends with them).
>>
>>10638478

That's the stated purpose on their website, anyway. What's not clear to me is whether Hate Is A Virus is raising this money on behalf of the Philanthropic Ventures Foundation, a charity listed at the bottom of their website that seems to mainly disburse grants to other organizations, or if they are operating on a grant and the money will flow to Hate Is A Virus, Inc, a 501(3)(c) incorporated in late May to "combat hate and discrimination against communities of color by engaging, educating, and activating the multigenerational Asian American and Pacific Islander community and other communities to stand for justice and equality" that is not currently registered as a charity in California.
>>

>"combat hate and discrimination against communities of color by engaging, educating, and activating the multigenerational Asian American and Pacific Islander community and other communities to stand for justice and equality"
>combat hate and discrimination
Look at all the news stories and see who makes up the majority of attackers on Asians. Protip: It's not whitey. How can you combat that without making yourself looking racist?
>>
>>10638442
Shut the fuck up, cunt.
>>
>>10638634
The Asian community knows who attacks them most, don't worry

You doomerfags are a determined bunch of little cunts, aren't you?
Make sure you come back and apologize when all 2022 cons come back at full capacity.
I'm not sure what third world countries are doing, but the USA is pretty much over Covid. The government here cares about money, not lives Even if the variants pose a threat, we're not going back into lockdown here.
You Eurofags and down under fags can enjoy being under house arrest for another year, but that shit isn't happening in America.

Did you also voted for Trump?

>>10639516
No, actually.
I'm just telling it like it is. I'm not saying things have been done the way I'd personally like them to.
Stop letting Trump live in your head rent free, and stop making the pandemic and vaccine a political thing.

Tomorrow is already Day 0! I just got home from work and I started loading up my cosplays and gear into my car for the long road trip to LA. So what's everyone's cosplay lineup for the next several days who will be at the LACC tomorrow?

so are we actually doing an lacc meetup or what

There is suppose to be a gathering Saturday in LT at Weller Court on Saturday, but that's it.

It's fucking weird that my brain actually has this filed away as "AX season" and I start thinking more of cosplaying/vacation time just because of the weather and July 4th, but it does.
Also, fuck AX Lite, the stream last year was the single most depressing event during COVID

The Delta variants along with a high unvaccined rate and rising cases is what is going to keep us in lockdown for another year.

You do realize that AX is held in Los Angles, an extremely liberal city in one of the most liberal states in the US. If anything your post should have been.
