The Convention Quadrant: Legendary Voice Actors Panel at RangerStop 7!

Hello to all of my beautiful nerds and welcome back from traveling the vast universe! I am back for another post!

Legendary Voice Actors Panel at RangerStop 7

Another panel video for you all and it is the Legendary Voice Actors Panel from RangerStop last year! Two of the guests they had were Samantha Newark who played Jem on Jem & the Holograms and Wally Wingert who you’ve seen my interview on YouTube and here on the blog! This was a very interesting panel because we get to not only hear Sam’s adventure in becoming a voice actress but also Wally’s adventure too. I did get to ask a question and had to re-iterate it a bit because it was kind of lost. I asked about how they feel about live-action adaptations of classic cartoons? I came up with the idea due to how Jem & the Holograms was adapted into live-action and well it didn’t get a lot of rave reviews and same with many others like Josie & the Pussycats as an example due to how the movie didn’t have a good script if I remembered one answer was said but you get to hear their answers. I do agree since you will see and hear my question in the John Tui Experience video that if it is a bad script then the movie wouldn’t do so well and can see why other cartoon live-action adaptations weren’t really made for the big screen. I did like the one Scooby Doo movie that Cartoon Network had a few years back on how the gang got together and wished they continued with that. Anyways, all tangents aside, just enjoy the rest of the video!

That is it for this post! I will get the next panel video up but I do have another book review for you guys so stay tuned!

The Convention Quadrant: Magical Source! Mystic Force! Panel from RangerStop 7!

Hello to all of my beautiful nerds and welcome back from traveling the vast universe! I am back with a new post!

Magical Source! Mystic Force! Panel from RangerStop 7!

Sorry for the wait on panel videos because we had a bit of trouble getting them off the SD on Gondras’ phone and he was going through laptop issues and of course we were also preparing for Omni on top of it but managed to talk with Damean in getting them together. The first panel up is the Mystic Force Panel and this was a long one because there were a lot of things being talked about in this one even it split into four parts for this one.

I did remember Linkara saying this was one of the weaker seasons of Power Rangers but I am kind of curious to watch it after this panel since my ex did watch the Japanese version, Magiranger, but am a sucker for the American version since that was what I grew up on. I did start watching Wild Force so it will be a bit before I get to this season. What took place? Watch and you will find out!

That is it for this post guys! More panel videos to come since we have gone to a majority of these during that convention. WHat’s next? I did get my BoxyCharm and Glam Bag Plus earlier today so I will be posting my BoxyCharm first! Until next time!

The Interview Quadrant: Aljin Abella from Power Rangers Jungle Fury!

Hello to all of my beautiful nerds and welcome back from traveling the vast universe! I am back with our last interview from RangerStop!

Interview with Aljin Abella from Power Rangers Jungle Fury!

Our last interview from RangerStop 7 is with Aljin Abella who played Theo on Power Rangers Jungle Fury! I haven’t watched the season yet since I’m still finishing Time Force at the moment, hey work keeps me busy, but will get to it eventually since it does have a blind master, Master Swoop. And the interesting part his character is his student! I can’t wait to see that since I only remembered clips when Linkara did his History of Power Rangers episode on this season. What did I ask Aljin? Watch and find out!

Well that is the end of our interviews from last year’s RangerStop. It was great getting to interview who we got a chance to. Even though we were hoping to get more but we did run out of time and there were so many great panels on top of it. We did give some of the people our business cards so they can get in contact with us for any Skype interviews since it’s been a while on there and that gave us a new interview experience. If not, there is always RangerStop 8 in Orlando which I can’t wait to see who they bring. I hope more people from Time Force and Lost Galaxy since those are two of my favorite seasons. We will be getting our panels edited since Gondras’ phone split them up into multiple parts and I did record some things on my end so hold tight for all that. Next will start my Subscription Satellite since according to the tracking BoxyCharm and GB Plus are supposed to be here this week. So, stay tuned!

The Interview Quadrant: Christopher Khayman Lee from Power Rangers In Space!

Hello to all of my beautiful nerds and welcome back from traveling the vast nerd universe and I am back with another RangerStop Interview and some really good news! Let’s go!

Interview with Christopher Kayman Lee from Power Rangers in Space!

Rounding off the Power Rangers in Space cast from last year’s RangerStop is of course Christopher Kayman Lee! Wanted to interview him at RangerStop 6 but since the red rangers were in demand that year didn’t get a chance but this year we did. Even though I counted this as one of my favorite moments but I do have another but have to get to that video when it’s up because it made me realize it was a great one. Anyways, since I have bene a fan of this season due to the space bits like with Lost Galaxy, I was glad to watch every moment and did enjoy “Countdown to Destruction” myself. What did I ask him? Watch and find out.

We did try to get Melody who played Astronomer but she did leave early on that Sunday so hoping if she comes back this year to Orlando we get a chance again. I wouldn’t mind also interview the other three rangers from this season too if they also get invited. Let’s see what 2020 brings to Orlando!

Now onto an important announcement! As you saw in our last post I mentioned briefly about upgrading this blog and we did! Today starts a new beginning for Nerdy Shique Universe and that is we are now a full on website domain! Yay! For the past seven years of running this blog, I haven’t had the funds to upgrade and now that working helped get me to this point alongside having all the hard work with going to some of the conventions we had press opportunities at like RangerStop, Omni Fandom Expo since they found us, and even MetroCon, MythiCon and a few others. Plus with posting about Ipsy, also reviews on items, and so on, it was time to kick it up a notch. So, I thank you all for supporting this blog as long as it has been alive. Without it I wouldn’t be where I am today and how it led me to my job in teaching Adaptive Technology since I use it to operate this thing. Now that it’s all upgraded and raring to go? What is more to come? I did mention the Favorites being changed, also that means Convention Spotlight will also change alongside Convention Impossible. Since now I am doing each category as Quadrants to match our space theme, I will be referring Spotlight as Comet as in Convention Comet and Convention Impossible as Convention Nebula since we do discover new conventions if we can travel to them. So now stay tuned for the Convention Comet on Omni Fandom Expo when it gets closer!

We will still post our interviews by the way and hoping to add more pics of me with the guests like we had in the past since it does add a bit of a flare to those posts. And with the Subscriptions post I will also include links to the products for you guys so you can explore the items themselves. Which makes me changing the Beauty part of this blog to the Beauty Galaxy and separate the Beauty Subscriptions to Subscription Sattelite since it would fit the alliteration a lot better with that part. I think that is about it since we have changed over time and it would be better to separate our items and make more titles space infused. And of course, glad to be a part of this vast nerd universe alongside with you all. 2020 will be a big year for this blog especially now that it’s a full on website and we will keep it that way as well.

What is next? We do have an interview with one of the rangers from Power Rangers Jungle Fury and now waiting on my subscriptions to arrive since Glam Bag Plus has been shipped and BoxyCharm is also on its way. And make sure you check us out on Twitter and YouTube for any convention videos, my beauty videos, and our Twitter updates! Until next time!

The Interview Quadrant: Justin Nemo from Power Rangers In Space!

Hello to all of my beautiful nerds and welcome back from traveling the vast universe! Now to continue with our interviews from RangerStop!

Interview with Justin Nemo from Power Rangers in Space!

Happy New Year to all and hoping you all had a safe one and partied until the morning rays. Now I am back with another interview and that is with Justin Nemo who played Zane in Power Rangers in Space! When I heard that he was a guest for this past year’s event I wanted to interview him and glad that Gondras got the interview. What did I ask the Silver Space Ranger? Watch the video and you will find out!

That is it for this post guys! Next up is our interview with Space Red Andros himself! Stay tuned! Also will be bringing more RangerStop coverage since we have to get our panel videos sewn together and rendered so hoping we can get those up by Omni this year. Also, stay tuned for updates on our upgrade and of course my subscriptions for January! Until next time!

The Interview Quadrant: Patrick David from In Space!

Hello to all of my beautiful nerds and welcome back from traveling the vast universe! I am back with another post!

RangerStop 7 Interview with Patrick David from In Space!

Sorry for the wait guys but have been working hard at the YouTube Quadrant with getting looks up with holiday sets I purchased this year and glad to be back here! So, we are on the last Psycho Ranger and that is Patrick David. He plays Psycho Red on In Space and on Lost Galaxy since the crossover with both teams dealt with the Psychos again. Still makes me sad with Kendrix in that. Anyways, we were glad to get him towards the end of the convention since he was heading home but was nice enough to give us some time. I love this convention and glad some people had time and unfortunately we did run out towards the end on that Sunday and same with the guests. There is always next year after all! What did we get to ask this guy? Check it out!

Well guys that is it for this post! Stay tuned for our interview with Justin Nemo! Since its Christmas Eve I want to wish you from the bottom of our hearts here at Nerdy SHique Universe a Merry Christmas and a Happy Holidays to you all! I have enjoyed my first year being away from home and also bringing more posts to this blog and the YouTube channel. I never thought I would listen to Christmas music again since my spirits have gotten better since I started working and even worked harder here and on YouTube. Please have a safe, happy, and healthy holiday! Until next time! Stay beautiful and merry while traveling the vast universe!

The Interview Quadrant: Michael Mayes From RangerStop 7!

Hello to all of my beautiful nerds and welcome back from the traveling the vast universe! It is time for another Power Rangers interview!

Interview with Michael Mayes from RangerStop 7!

Continuing our interviews from RangerStop is with Michael Mayes who plays Psycho Black in In Space! He was actually our first interview to do with anyone during the weekend but I guess the order got mixed on YouTube. Anyways, I didn’t get to have my Braille Sense Polaris in this one and same with another since Gondras thought it would have been best to be a bit quieter. It wasn’t too bad when we did it with Wally and three other interviews which you will see next. What did we ask this guy? Watch and find out!

That is it for this post! Next interview is with Patrick David who played Psycho Red!

The Interview Quadrant: Wally Wingert At RangerStop 7

Hello to all of my beautiful nerds and welcome back from stuffing yourselves with turkey and all the fixings! I am back with another post!

Interview with Wally Wingert at RangerStop 7!

Alrighty then! So, starting the interview footage from RangerStop and man it was interview upon interview since Gondras talked to EVERYONE and handed our business cards and pamphlets out which also helped. We did get to do six interviews and did mention we do them over Skype in case no one is available or we can also catch them next year if we get the chance for press which I hope we do because this convention is a major blast to go to! Heck, I saw someone on the group earlier say they are going to Orlando next year from the UK! Oh yeah!

So, to start off with this year’s set up is Wally Wingert! Not only he played Psycho Blue on In Space but he has been in a ton of anime such as Tiger & Bunny as Kotetsu also known as Tiger and anyone who has been into Bleach! He Voice Renji! And to all of my Invader Zim fans he was also Tallest Red! I did get to ask him my favorite question which was the funniest thing happened in the booth which you get to watch because it was hard to think of other questions since I didn’t know what else to ask and it’s been months since we have interviewed a voice actor. Glad to talk to him and not only that got to cross his name off the Voice Actors to Interview List.

That is it for this one guys! Stay tuned for our next interview with another Psycho Ranger, Psycho Black played by Michael Mayes! And also follow our Twitter, @ Nerdy Shique, for all of the latest updates!

The Convention Quadrant: RangerStop 7 in Orlando, FL

Before this post begins I want to say that this post is dedicated to Robert Axelrod. He just passed away yesterday and I remembered meeting him at the very first Omni Fandom Expo. He did suffer from a big surgery a year ago and Barbara Goodson did raise money for treatment at last year’s RangerStop. I still remembered going to his Sunday panel at Omni where he talked about his role as Lord Zed in Mighty Morphen Power Rangers and his work on Digimon. Rest in peace Mr. Acxlrod you were a very talented voice actor who brought a lot of entertainment to kids as they grown up like I had when I first saw Zed on screen.

Hello to all of my beautiful nerds and welcome back from traveling the vast nerd universe! I am back with a new convention spotlight!

RangerStop 7 in Orlando, FL November 8th through the 10th, 2019!

It’s Morphen Time again with RangerStop 7! Yes, another year for Orlando’s Power Rangers convention. If you were in Atlanta you probably have went to the pop culture version of this convention and probably met other familiar faces besides our favorite Rangers. Let’s see what this year has in hold for the fans that are excited for the Orlando counterpart!

Hotel: This year the convention will be held at the Wyndham Orlando Resort which is in the heart of International Drive. Me and Gondras have stayed at this resort before the renovations have been done back in 2011 and 2012, we did go to AFO 2015 as attendees and seen the changes. There are more panel rooms added, ramps and stairways well small ones stair sets. If you have a wheelchair or a blind cane, watch your step as my tip. We will be staying at the hotel which the price for the discount is $109 a night. I would say book now because the rooms will go fast in time for the convention and if that happens you can stay at other places in the area, there is the La Quinta to let you know. Besides the hotel, you do have many attractions surrounding the hotel like the Orlando Eye for example, CityWalk down the road, even Universal alongside SeaWorld and their parks along with it. And for bites to eat, there are many restaurants you can go to like Red Robin for example or can order in if you wanted to if you have Uber Eats!

Tickets: There are so many tickets to choose from
You also get a 20% discount on some of them like the weekend pass with a shirt, the all weakened pass for example. One ticket I found interesting is of course the Family Plan where you can have two adults and up to five kids age’s four to twelve for $100 at the moment. For information on tickets, you can visit the link I will be providing down below!

Guests: This year there will be a lot of returning guests such as Kat Sutherland, Karen Ashley, Austin St. John, Christopher Kayman Lee, and a few new ones to add which one we are excited about! John Tui will be appearing at this year’s RangerStop for his first time. For anyone who has remembered the season SPD like we have he played Doggie Cruger in that season. Another interesting add on for any pop culture lovers and that is Samantha Newark who is known as Jerika and Jem from Jem & the Holograms! Make sure you follow RangerStop on their Facebook group because there are more guests to come. I am crossing my fingers on some and hoping to interview a few to add to our channel!

Well guys that is it for this spotlight. I know it’s short but there are new announcements to come for this convention. I do have to say is that this one is a huge blast to go to and worth the money since I did attend back in 2015. The guests are veryRangerStop Orlando Page nice and you get to hear their stories from being on the series or from their own convention experiences since they do appear at other conventions around the world. And of course with our second year of press we will be wearing the shirts and bringing the pamphlets along since we want to spread the word about our work so can’t wait for what this year brings.

What is next? Still waiting on my subscription boxes to come. I also am saying that I did join Dollar Shave Club well sued to hygiene issues…okay I was lazy in using RangerStop Tickets PageGondras’ razor from his box! Now I get one myself! It is worth it! Anyways, I am waiting on Glam Bag Plus and BoxyCharm at the moment since they got shipped out recently. So, until next time!

Also, check out the links to the tickets page and RangerStop Orlando!

The Convention Quadrant: People We Want to Interview Part 1!

Hello to all of my beautiful nerds and welcome back from traveling the vast universe! I am back with another post and taking a change of pace for a minute.

List of People I Want to Interview

Since we interviewed Steve Blum back in 2016 at holiday Matsuri, we have achieved that goal and still interviewed people like Paul St. Peter, Derek Steven Prince, and Jennifer Hale and so on. Now with the slight slowdown in press we have kind of thought just sticking with Omni and RangerStop for press but doesn’t mean we want to branch to other conventions in the future. Heck, we still want to go back to MetroCon since they were really good to us and have given us recommendations to some of their guests. Hoping next year would be a goal? Who knows? Now, there are some people I do want to interview whether it’s on Skype or in person and who are they? Let’s see!

Jennifer Yen: First up is someone I really want to interview for a long time now and that is Jennifer Yen. If you have read my Ipsy posts, she is the one who created the brands Purlisse and Yensa Cosmetics. Reason for interviewing is not just because she created her own brands but she was Vipra on Power Rangers Light Speed Rescue. Not only have I wanted to know more about her brands but her role in Light Speed Rescue as well. I still enjoy seeing that little tidbit about her villain role on Ipsy whenever I get an item from either brand.
Barbara Goodson: Next up is another iconic Power Rangers villain and that is Barbara Goodson. She is known for playing Rita Repulsa and of course our favorite overlord Leharl in Disgaea. Hoping to get press again this year for RangerStop since she is a guest again if not I did get in contact with her recently over Facebook to see about getting that Skype interview since that is a bit of a backup for us and has worked well so far. I will update over Twitter with what happens.
Neil Kaplan: Since we have interviewed Digimon stars over the years Neil Kaplan is another one I want to interview. Recently the National Federation of the Blind talked about how there should be more blind actors in blind character roles and I remembered how Mr. Kaplan taught at the Braille Institute years ago when it comes to using Braille scripts. I did get back in touch with him and he does stay in touch with students after ending his class. He does want to come back to Orlando and Omni if you’re reading this he should be a guest since he is Halsemon in Digimon Adventure 2. Also, any Voltron Legendary Defender fans? He also plays Zarkon.
Yuri Lowenthal: Yes! I placed this guy on my list since I have been a fan of one of his characters even if he was evil, Yuri Lowenthal. He has an amazing voice range and the first time I heard him in anything was as Sasuke in Naruto and my favorite role he has done has to be Haseo in the G.U. games. Getting to sit down with him in person or over Skype would be a huge honor.
Johnny Yong Bosch: Another Power Rangers alumni and now anime and video game voice actor has to be Johnny Yong Bosch. I have met him twice in person and want to interview him since it would be a nice addition to our channel. How I heard of his anime work was when the anime heat Guy J appeared on MTV2 when I was in high school and he has been in so many anime series and video games over time, heck he is in the G. U. games and the last two Devil May Cry games, as in four and five. Hoping to get to interview him sometime in the future.
Liam O’Brien: Speaking of G.U. another actor from that franchise is Liam O’Brien. When he was at MythiCon for the first time, we only went for fun to get a feel for the convention and got to enjoy the panels. Now that MythiCon has ended hoping to interview this guy since he has voiced Gaara in Naruto for the longest time and Endrance in the games I mentioned above.
David Mitranga: Who is this guy you’re wondering? Well, all thanks to our buddy Xeno Crystal not being able to go to MetroCon this year like us he has inspired me to add him to our list of people we want to interview. Anyone who is a My Hero Academia fan as much as we are he is the voice of Todoroki Mr. Ice Fire himself!
Bridget Hoffman: Adding another actress on and that is Bridget Hoffman. I know this would be a hard one to get since I haven’t seen her here in Florida as much. She has been the voice of Mizuho in Please Teacher, Miaka in Fushigi Yugi and Mahoro in Mahoromatic.
Colleen Clinkenbeard: Maybe I should stop here since this list maybe long and that my last entry for now is Colleen Clinkenbeard! We tried getting press for Anime Festival Orlando again last year since she was a guest oat this one and didn’t get a chance to interview her at MegaCon which I won’t get into detail but the short end to that story was due to not letting any press interview any people that were famous including voice actors. Voice actors can be famous but most of the time they can be popular! She is a popular pick due to not only voicing Erza Scarlet but she has directed many series in the past including my all-time favorite series, Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle. Hoping to get to interview her in the future even if she ends up as a guest at Omni.

Well, that is it for this list for now. I am ending it here because there are so many people I want to interview and it’s hard to fit them all in. I may do a second part to this down the road so stay tuned for that one later. Until next time everyone stay beautiful while traveling the vast universe!
