Anison Central

Starting in 2004, I've spent each birthday on a day-long quest, trying to set a new personal best for the number of anime songs sung at karaoke (the entire song, natch, not just one verse). The marathon is gruelling, but it's also a unique way to reflect on life, with the songs evoking a steady stream of memories from throughout the nearly three decades that I've been a fan. And at marathon's end, there's the satisfaction of having achieved something new.

In 2004, getting through 142 anime songs had been gruelling; not a fun experience, but something I took some pride in having been able to do. In 2005, the goal was 150--and this time it was actually fun, especially with a new karaoke system, UGA, offering a couple thousand more anime songs than the previous year's CyberDAM system (including some of my longtime favorites that only UGA seems to have!).

After #145, it was time to think about the final five songs...but I'd started from the back of the catalog and there were still several pages to go, with a slew of fun songs I hated to skip. Sooo, figured what the heck--63 is my lucky number, so changed the goal to 163, and spent the final hour tickled silly that a voice was still coming out!

One-Fifty Fest--At First...!
