Anime North 2010: Day 1

Friday May 28, 2010. Day 1 of The Infection’s Anime North 2010 excursion. First and foremost, before we even get into anything we have to say that this whole convention was fucking great. If you weren’t there then you need to be there next year. Trust us when we say that we have been entertained! Continue reading

Final Message before Anime North

Hey y’all it’s Poison here, currently working hard with Lionel and the rest of the Infection to get ready for the big show tomorrow. I just decided that I would greet you all with a cool personal message on behalf of all of us here at The Infection.

First off, thank you all kindly for the support. We’ve been active for a year and a half now and thanks to your support we’re able to keep doing what we love. Once again we apologize for all the promises we’ve made to you all that we can’t keep. On a personal level, I want to thank all the members of The Infection for all their hard work and support. We can’t forget to thank our friends like the cool guys over at Starhill for having our backs whenever we need it. Props to you all people!

Second of all, today is the day before the biggest show of the year for us so far . This will make my 7th year straight of perfect attendance for Anime North. If you’ve been paying attention then you’ll know wassup with me when I say that alot of shit has been going on over on my end. Everyone over here at The Infection has been working so hard by either keeping their shit up to date or just helping us prepare so I’ve gotta shout out to them.

Otherwise, I’m looking forward to seeing all my friends from school. It’s been a full month of summer break already and I kind of miss them. They’re all pretty cool people and I’m hoping that alot of them show up for dinner on Saturday night. Perhaps even party with me and watch Saturday morning cartoons. It’ll be fucking awesome! I’m living off junk food and anime for three days straight…perhaps I’ll have my last real meal tonight before my insides collapse on themselves.

Still, the important news I have to share- The Infection and Starhill has the honor of being the first and coolest panel to open up the convention on Friday! We’re going to be in the Doubletree hotel in the Toronto B-room for 5pm sharp and we’ll be there until 6. What we’re going to be talking about is simple- whatever the fuck we want. C’mon out, get some free candy from us, peanut free of course (we hope) and start off the con eating junk food and talking anime with us!

Keep all of us entertained!

Toronto Comic Arts Festival!

Doug Sneyd- Cartoonist for Playboy

Alright people it’s Poison Apple here and as usual we’re here doing our best to deliver the goods for y’all on everything worth knowing about! So this weekend past I decided to hit up the Toronto Comic Arts Festival thanks to the suggestion by my bro, Allen, who’s in this week’s video.

So to begin, this is the first major convention of the year that we’re going to be hitting up here at The Infection. Not that the Auto show was big but when it comes to comics and animation you’re stepping into the field of our passion. Sadly, our camera died so we weren’t able to get many pics or videos for you all but we do have one thing to say…It’s so worth going to! Continue reading

Power to the people!

Warning: This article contains politicial ideologies that are not necessarily the views of the entire group. Please read our mission statement if you want to know our views as a whole.

Welcome to The Infection, it’s been a busy week and we’ve been preparing material for you all in various directions. Our lateness  has an actual legitimate excuse that we wont bother to give you since we’re cool like that. So…here’s the first post for last week!

So Saturday May 1st was International Free comic book day. We promised that we would visit our local comic book shop and give you all the lowdown on us getting free comic books. We failed to do that and instead we decided to go out and help fight the good fight for the people’s rights in a May Day rally in Toronto. Aren’t we awesome?!

So we went out and got some pictures and some video that will be placed on Facebook and Youtube. The fact is that we were there and supporting a good cause. Continue reading
