pdnmz_takii2:47pm: {{ PRESS RELEASE }} TAKII 9's Grand Premiere This Weekend!
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - Ain't No Stoppin' Us Now: TAKII 9 Releases Its "Hardcore Handbook" & MORE In Time For Its 9th Seasonal Celebration Memorial Day Weekend!

ORIGINAL PRESS RELEASE URL: http://amen.pdnmz.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=29&t=30

May 27th, 2010 -- Upper Darby, PA -- Ever been in a situation where you find yourself going to a festival/convention, fired up & ready to go, but have no freakin' clue what to do, or where to go to do it? Well, minna-san, the Team TAKII Coalition proudly presents to you the "Hardcore Handbook" for TAKII 9 ~Yume Ga Kanau~! The "Hardcore Handbook" is your key to celebratory awesomeness for the fusion festival! It's just like any other programming book you would find at other like-minded functions/conventions, but it's value is unmatched in the realm of Asian-themed fandom. Featuring various at-festival procedures, guest & performer bios, event schedules, autograph panels, & other TAKII-exclusive sexiness, it's the perfect compliment to everyone's fusion festival experience. People who plan on attending a season of TAKII are encouraged to print out a copy of the "Hardcore Handbook" prior to their arrival, as only limited editions & quantities of this guide would be available at-the-door. Without further ado, you may download your copy of TAKII 9 ~Yume Ga Kanau~'s "Hardcore Handbook" here: http://takii.pdnmz.com/registration.html#hardcore_handbook

As any fan of "the world's most extreme Asian culture fusion festival" would know, The Asian Karaoke Idol Invitational prides itself on offering the most uniquely cutting-edge sources of entertainment around. In that spirit, TAKII 9 ~Yume Ga Kanau~ is excited to premiere a 1st in the Greater Philadelphia Region for an Asian-themed celebration: a collaborative tournament in both Capcom's Tatsunoko VS Capcom (Wii) & Super Street Fighter 4 (PS3), a centerpiece of our "Capcom Showdown SmackDown!" game show/tournament to be held this weekend!! From the official TAKII website: "Capcom has been a video game juggernaut for decades, creating timeless classics families all over the world have thoroughly enjoyed across generations of system. With the coming of TAKII 9, we once again celebrate the vast amount of characters from this gaming giant's empire in the form of "Capcom Showdown SmackDown"! #1 Contender's Pass holders will be chosen at random, taking part in a series of Capcom game-based challenges on systems ranging from old-school Arcade & PS3 & everything in-between. Finalists will be determined by each system that they triumph, with all of those victors battling it out for ultimate gaming glory (in a Tatsunoko VS Capcom & Super Street Fighter 4 finale) to crown our "Capcom Showdown SmackDown" World Champ!"

Another trademark characteristic of The Asian Karaoke Idol Invitational is its penchant for going "off-script", coming up with fantastic festivities that give birth to some of the memorable (& humorously-bizarre) moments in TAKII history, & TAKII 9 ~Yume Ga Kanau~ promises to carry on that tradition strong (^_^). What special tasks will contestants have asked of them during our combined "TAKII 9 Show" & "AMEN Talent Showcase"? Just how extreme is our extended "Ota-Rave" going to be? Whose performance is going to bring down "the house of Asian music appreciation" during our "Makenai: Fusion Charity Benefit Concert"? And what will Pocky, ice cream, water ice, sugar, spice, everything nice (& maybe naughty LOL), other chilled desserts, & a crazy game show host that has a fixation for the word "Iron" have to do with each other!? The only way to solve these mysteries, & MORE, is to make sure you don't miss a moment of the non-stop action that's goin' down at TAKII 9 ~Yume Ga Kanau~ this weekend!

In closing, the Team TAKII Coalition (new & veteran staff, sponsors, & various volunteers alike) wishes to send a special DOMO ARIGATOU to all of its fans worldwide, especially those who will be in attendance live at TAKII 9 ~Yume Ga Kanau~ this Memorial Day Weekend. It has been an amazing journey, putting this season of The Asian Karaoke Idol Invitational together, & we can't wait to share the fruits of everyone's combined labor & heart-felt sacrifice with you all. It truly does make our pending ground-breaking announcements for the future of this fusion festival, its parent organization, Prince Diamond's NegaMoon Zone (PDNMZ), & the entire PDNMZ Empire, all the more sweeter. SEE YOU AT THE ROTUNDA IN PHILLY, PA THIS WEEKEND, MINNA-SAN!!!! o^_*o

Coordinators also wish to fairly warn everyone that passionate gamers tend to dominate our entries for Tourneys each season, so as they say, "if you can't stand the heat, then you should get out of the kitchen" (LOL ^_^). Excessive douche-ry, however, isn't endorsed or tolerated by the festival.

In less than ONE WEEK we'll be playing with MC LARS.

In honor of this. A most exciting development. MAY 7TH 2009 will be the first unveiling of MUSTACHE REQUIRED as a FULL ROCK BAND.

The band Fezzwig http://www.myspace.com/fezzwigband will be playing all the beats from our hits from the popular BOTTOM HALF SWIMMER in support of one of our coolest shows EVER. Trust me, you're not going to want to miss it.

Further exciting news, KOALA T will be able to play this show with an exception to his HOUSE ARREST rules. The news is mindblowing, and could seriously result in this being the best MUSTACHE REQUIRED show EVER.

Tickets are 12 dollars, but 8 dollars from us. Please buy them, and come see us perform. This show is gonna be off the hook.

-MC Mystery

NOTE: Freezepop will not be at this show. This is just a shout out, if fans of Freezepop in this area were at the show yesterday, where MUSTACHE REQUIRED opened for Freezepop, wanted the down low on this show. It's going to be most excellent.

March 25th, 2009 -- Upper Darby, PA -- What, you think we haven't been busy the last few months, eh? Shame, shame, shame, quite the contrary. With only 4 weeks to go before "the world's most extreme Asian culture fusion festival", there is plenty to unveil, discuss, & enjoy. That also means it's about that time to unleash to the world 1 of TAKII 7's best kept secrets for the season....

For those of you who haven't been keeping up with the latest developments on the TAKII website, PDNMZ Feedback Fourm, & Asian Multimedia Entertainment Network, we are proudly excited to announce the centerpieces of this season's momentous celebration: TAKII's 7 Deadly SINs"ASIAN"s!

ASIAN REALITY TV/GAME SHOWS

OBSCENE # OF CHARACTERS
COSPLAY
ASIAN DRAMA

To pay tribute to these dynamic heroes of Asian-themed entertainment, every festivity (divided into "#1 Contender's Pass Exclusives" & "Free-For-All Festivities") at TAKII 7 is based on a Deadly SINs"ASIAN", if not a combination thereof. The following festivities are only a small portion of our seasonal premiers, giving TAKII attendees even more chances to win spiffy sway & that all-but-illusive TAKII-branded glory:

The past few months have proven to be a period of exponential growth for the fusion festival that almost "never was", & this has been proven (among other ways) by our record-breaking pre-registrant sales, surpassing estimates that have been made in previous seasons! With this being said, it is all the more important that y'all get a hold of your #1 Contender's Passes & Table Slots before the final pre-registration deadline of April 15th, 2009 comes up ($8.00/#1 Contender's Pass, $40.00/Table Slot).

Get ready in 4 weeks to enjoy what we promise to be the most jam-packed, inspirational, & awesomely entertaining season of The Asian Karaoke Idol Invitationalthat has ever been produced!!!!

Anybody else pre-order the new Dark Knight collectible soundtrack they're putting out soon? I saw it's 18 bucks cheaper if you pre-order it at the main site: http://www.darkknightscore.com. They put 50 minutes of extra music on, as well as remixes with Crystal Method.

Now, I am not normally one to tout any new shit...but I'm sort of having a nerdgasm over this. It's probably the booklet. Or the extra Hans Zimmer.

Asian Americans For Obama (AAFO) was founded in December 2006 to reach out to & organize the Asian Pacific American community to help elect Barack Obama the next President of the United States. By way of scheduled meet-ups, correspondence with the official campaign, & massive multimedia out-reach, Obama's plan for the Asian community is conveyed in a uniquely effective way everyone can understand & enjoy...."


BAWLS (OFFICIAL TAKII 6 USA BEVERAGE SPONSOR ~ ENERGY DRINKS)
...."BAWLS Guarana started as the brainchild of a recent college graduate who was looking for an alternative to coffee. As part of a class project, he came up with BAWLS – a premium, carbonated, non-alcoholic beverage made with Guarana. Named for the caffeinated 'Bounce' it gives you, BAWLS gets its flavor and kick from the Amazonian Guarana berry, which contains a natural form of caffeine nearly three times stronger than that found in traditional sodas. Bawls reps will be on hand all day on Day 2 of TAKII 6, giving festival-goers free samples of some sexy drinks & showing them just why they are this season's official American Energy Drink Sponsor. This marks the 2nd official energy drink sponsorship TAKII has ever earned...."

We replied to that individual by simply saying, "They want to come to TAKII for the fans & to get exposed to the extreme brand of celebratory excitement we are all known & loved for." Whether you attend for our Asian-themed "straight talk", or come to experience "change you can believe in", we promise you....with TAKII 6, "you ain't seen nothin' yet!"

While joining AMEN is just like a TAKII festival, free, the moments & glory that you will earn will be simply priceless. Never ones to do things the easy way, Team TAKII Coordinators took their chances in introducing something that has never been done by any festival or convention of its kind to such a degree that AMEN exists. However, that gamble payed off, as TAKII: AMEN fans can now post their own blogs, customize their own profiles, use our very own AMEN Instant Messenger, create their own social groups, post music & video, & so much more. As TAKII: AMEN keeps its feet on the ground, they & their fans keep on reachin’ for the stars of success & celebration in what promises to be yet another milestone of Asian culture appreciation, 24/7!"

Fans of the fusion festival will be able to enjoy the best of Asian music, anime, & culture from the comfort of their own home!

As a wise lady once said, "You only get 1 chance to make a 1st impression." With the debut of Asian Multimedia Entertainment Network (AMEN) on Day 1, TAKII 6 ~NintenDecision 2008~ will be a season of this Asian-themed phenomenon that the world will not soon forget.
