First and foremost, I cannot begin to apologize for the lack of updates to the Website over the past year. I have been so busy with work, hobbies, friends, and other things lately that I have not been able to devote a lot of time to the Website, my YouTube channel, my Twitch channel, and a few other avenues (although I have been keeping the Facebook page updated very frequently). I know that I have not worked on the Let’s Plays in over a year, and the Image Gallery still has over two years worth of pictures that need to be uploaded to it. When I am able to, I will spend some time updating the Image Gallery and getting more Let’s Plays out.

In other news, it has been over three years ago since I first launched Christopher Eastman.com, and while I have not done much to the Website lately as far as major content, when I am able to, I will make some small updates to My Anime List. Currently, I am not planning a redesign to the Website, but at some point, I do plan on updating the Website’s header. Various aspects will remain the same, but the images behind the Christopher Eastman.com text will end up being changed. As far as the actual text, I am highly debating upon changing it to a different font, but we will see.

Work has been going extremely well lately. On April 20, 2016, I have been officially employed by CrossCom National for a year, and I am very pleased with the progress that I have made growing as an IT Technician. My continued hope that, as time goes on, I will continue to learn additional skills and be able to fully utilize my Bachelor’s degree in Management Information Systems. I still plan on working towards some professional certifications, but at this time, I am just going to continue at the pace I am at right now.

For those that are not aware, I have been doing a lot more with photography over the past year. I am incredibly blessed and honored by the opportunities that have been presented to me at the events that I have attended, and I am extremely thankful for everyone that has allowed me to take their pictures and those that have shared their advice and wisdom with me over the years. With the things that I have learned over the years, I have been able to take better pictures of my toddler niece (it is still hard to believe that she will be two years old in September) so I can share those with my family and loved ones. While photography is not a profession (it is a very expensive hobby), I still strive to become better as a photographer so I can continue to take many pictures of my niece for the years to come.

All and all, the year has been fantastic. I am so thankful for the people in my life, and I really cannot wait to see what the future continues to bring. I cannot promise that I will have any big updates before the year is over, but I will try to have some additional updates to Christopher Eastman.com in the months to come.

See You Space Cowboy…

I know that things have slowed down a lot on Christopher Eastman.com lately, and for that, I truly apologize. Lately, I have been busy with work, spending time with friends, and working on photography, so I have not devoted a lot of time to the Website. Additionally, since I like to record my Let’s Plays when I am home alone and undisturbed (for those that do not remember, I live with my mom, and she is retired), I have not released a new Let’s Play in months.

Nonetheless, with the way things have been going at work and my finances, I am hoping to have my credit card bill paid off sometime early next year so I can start saving up for an apartment, furniture, Internet access, etc. When I have my own place, I should be able to produce Let’s Plays much more frequently than what I am doing right now.

Getting back on subject, for those that are interested, I created a petition on Change.org regarding my current efforts of trying to engage the appropriate decision makers to convince them to produce a karaoke version of the Pokémon: 2.B.A. Master soundtrack. Personally, I do not know if I will get a lot of traction with this online petition, but as the old saying goes:

Nothing ventured, nothing gained

Anyway, I cannot promise that I will be able to post again before Christmas, and I know that I have a fairly large backlog of pictures that I would like to get uploaded to the Website, but I hope to make another update to the Website before the year is over.

See You Space Cowboy…

I know that things have been pretty quiet on the Website, and I do apologize about that. I have been fairly busy as of late with work, spending time with friends, and working on my photography hobby. However, with Planned PTO coming up for the week of November 1, 2015 – November 7, 2015, I hope to be able to work on several projects for the Website that I have been neglecting lately.

During the weekend of October 23, 2015 – October 25, 2015, I attended Wizard World Comic Con Tulsa 2015 at the Cox Business Center, and there was so much to do over the weekend. There were celebrities and industry guests that attended over the weekend (such as Norman Reedus, the Undertaker, Bruce Campbell, Charles Martinet, Kevin Conroy, and so many more), there were official Wizard World Comic Con Tulsa 2015 events to do each night after the convention ended each day, the cosplay contest, and so many additional things that occurred during the fun packed weekend. Wizard World certainly did not disappoint Oklahoma when they returned, and I am thankful that the Wizard World Comic Con tour made a return visit to the Sooner State.

It will be a while before I upload all of the pictures from the weekend to Christopher Eastman.com (largely due to the fact that I took over 1,000 pictures throughout the weekend), but if you are a regular visitor to my Facebook page, you can check all of the pictures in the albums I posted there.

Also, if you are interested in an un-watermarked copy of my pictures, please feel free to send me an E-Mail through my Contact Me form, and I will send you the .jpg file as soon as possible.

All and all, I would like to thank everyone so much for such an amazing weekend, and you better believe that I will be returning for Wizard World Comic Con Tulsa 2016.

See You Space Cowboy…

With the excitement from preparing and attending Tokyo in Tulsa 2015: Worlds|Collide: Mecha vs. Kaiju, I completely forgot that there was an anniversary earlier this month.

As of July 1, 2015, Christopher Eastman.com has been up for two years 🙂

It is hard to believe that two years ago, I started this Website as a way to post my digital content, write about my life, test various things with HTML5 and CSS, utilize different WordPress plugins, and so much more.

It has been an amazing two years, and as the years go by, I hope to add more digital content, share more of my life with you, and basically just keep doing what I’m doing right now.

All and all, thank you all so much for your support over the past two years 🙂

Last week, I attended Tokyo in Tulsa 2015: Worlds|Collide: Mecha vs. Kaiju, and once again, the staff members, volunteers, vendors, guests, cosplayers, photographers, visitors, and everyone made it a fantastic weekend.

There were so many things to do over the weekend, the musical entertainment was amazing, the Cosplay Contest was spectacular, and in my opinion, you would be very hard pressed not to have fun during the three-day weekend. It was amazing being able to see familiar faces, see my entire anime convention family, and add new members to my anime convention family. You all are absolutely incredible, and I definitely cannot wait for next year.

It will be a while before I upload all of the pictures from the weekend to Christopher Eastman.com (largely due to the fact that I took over 1,800 pictures throughout the weekend), but if you are a regular visitor to my Facebook page, you can check all of the pictures in the albums I posted there.

Also, if you are interested in an un-watermarked copy of my pictures, please feel free to send me an E-Mail through my Contact Me form, and I will send you the .jpg file as soon as possible.

Once again, thank you so much everyone for making this such an amazing event. If I don’t see everyone at the Tokyo in Tulsa holiday parties this year or at Wizard World Tulsa Comic Con, I will see you all next year 🙂

See You Space Cowboy…

The moment that I have been waiting for all year long will soon be upon us.

Tokyo in Tulsa 2015: Worlds|Collide: Mecha vs. Kaiju starts on Friday, July 17, 2015!

As per usual, I will be attending, and I will be bringing my camera with me to take pictures, visit panels, watch anime, see the cosplay contest, and so much more.

My plan for this year is to have all of the pictures uploaded to the Website within a few days of the convention ending. Due to server upload limitations (due to being on a shared server, my PHP Max Upload Size is 64 MB, and NextCellent Gallery/NextGEN Gallery fails to upload pictures and generate thumbnails once it hits the 64 MB limit), the pictures will not be in their full resolution, but all of the pictures will be edited in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom prior to uploading them to the Website.

For those that follow my Facebook Page, the pictures will be in their full resolution there due to the fact that Facebook uses their own dedicated servers and have higher upload limits than my shared server.

Finally, if you see me at Tokyo in Tulsa and would like your picture taken, feel free to stop me for a picture.

The festivities for the anime convention kick off on Thursday, July 16, 2015 with the Tokyo in Tulsa 2015: Worlds|Collide: Mecha vs. Kaiju Annual Charity Ball.

July 13, 2014 - 028

I was determined to get all of the pictures from Tokyo in Tulsa 2014: Worlds|Collide: The Undead vs. Mecha uploaded to the Website before this year’s Tokyo in Tulsa, and with just a little over two weeks to go, I finally completed the project.

All of the pictures from July 13, 2014 have been uploaded and are available in the Image Gallery.

In the process of editing the names for the pictures, I also corrected all of the pictures that I named incorrectly (for example, tagging the year as 2015 instead of 2014).

Besides getting all of the pictures uploaded to Christopher Eastman.com, the reason I embarked on this massive editing and upload journey is due to the fact that after looking at the bulk of the pictures almost a year later, I felt ashamed of myself that I did not do any kind of editing to the pictures to improve the quality. Granted, I did not officially start using tools such as Adobe Camera Raw and Adobe Photoshop Lightroom until Wizard World Tulsa Comic Con (those pictures will be uploaded to the Website before this year’s convention, and all of them were edited last year), but ever since I finally started shooting in RAW format last year, I should have edited the pictures each night when I got home so they could be at their very best quality that I could get them in with the equipment I had available. Furthermore, while I have been taking pictures at anime conventions for years, I was mostly focused on taking as many pictures of my friends and fellow con goers without worrying too much about quality (at the time and to this day, I never considered myself a serious photographer). However, after my baby niece was born, I decided to strive to take better pictures and grow as a photographer so I could, ultimately, take better pictures of her.

All and all, to those that I took pictures of last year, I truly apologize that I did not edit the pictures to the best of my ability.

The original edited pictures in their full resolution are available (the pictures on the Website are at a lower resolution so I can get them uploaded to the Website in one batch without NextGEN Gallery choking), and if anyone is interested in them, please feel free to E-Mail me with your request.

See You Space Cowboy…

I am nearly done uploading all of the pictures from Tokyo in Tulsa 2014: Worlds|Collide: The Undead vs. Mecha to the Website, and if I keep working at this rate, I will definitely have all of the pictures uploaded before Tokyo in Tulsa 2015: Worlds|Collide: Mecha vs. Kaiju.

With this update, I uploaded all of the pictures that I took on July 12, 2014.

All and all, I hope everyone enjoys this next batch of pictures.

July 11, 2014 - 301

I am still working on getting the pictures from Tokyo in Tulsa 2014: Worlds|Collide: The Undead vs. Mecha uploaded to the Website.

All of the pictures from July 11, 2014, the first day of the anime convention, have finally been uploaded and are ready to be viewed.

If everything goes according to plan, I should have the rest of the pictures uploaded to the Website before Tokyo in Tulsa 2015: Worlds|Collide: Mecha vs. Kaiju begins on July 17, 2015.

All and all, I hope everyone enjoys this next batch of pictures.

It has been an incredibly long time coming, but after an eight month hiatus, Let’s Play Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes finally resumes with the upload of Part 7.

Now that Meryl has been spotted by the enemy, Solid Snake needs to ensure that she is safe. Upon meeting up with Meryl, the two set off towards Metal Gear REX’s underground maintenance base.

However, as they move towards the Commander’s Room, we end up noticing that Meryl’s been acting strangely…
