End of the line for 2010...
Posted on 17 Nov 2010 by Mario Bueno
Things have been crazy on my end even after the New York Anime Fest/Comic Con came to a close, but even with a brief period of rest, there's still one more gig to go!TAKII 10
in Philadelphia, PA! ^_^
I'll be performing what I expect to be my final set for the year at that event, so click the link to find out more! I hope to have some goodies ready to give out, and even if not, I expect to at least come back with some new video footage to round out the year. And speaking of...I have footage of my impromptu performance of "COLORS" from Anime USA.
While I was there to film the masquerade event for my benefactors/good friends American Cosplay Paradise
, I was asked to come up and do a song to buy a group time to get their set pieces in order. Needless to say, after a little negotiating since I was totally unprepared due to being in videography mode, I agreed and don't regret it at all. ;-)
Before I end this post, however, I'd like to take a moment to encourage anyone who follows my work to give me a hand with something:
As people who've seen me at other venues both big and small know, I bring my A-game everywhere I can, and I love getting the opportunity to travel to new places to spread my variety of entertainment to new audiences. However, as much as I can offer many venues with references and resume material, I can't do it alone! If you want to see me at a venue, please do what you can to drum up support so that I can have an easier time getting to perform near you!
Many thanks to all my new fans/friends that I've made in the past year alone for being as kind and vocal in your support as you have, and I look forward to seeing where things go in the next year!
Catch you after TAKII...;-D
A moment to reflect...

(...because I still have more work waiting on the horizon. ^_~;;;)
Welp, NYAF/NYCC 2010 has passed.
As a whole, it was both an amazing event and a bit of a hot mess, but nothing ever goes to plan when you do something new, so I'm confident that next year will be a much smoother run overall now that Year One of the joined cons has passed. I'm incredibly grateful to the ReedPop! team for letting me perform there once again and expanding upon my involvement as a result. Given the caliber of performance I was able to give (both for the capacity crowd at the IGN theater, and all the new followers from Gaia Online, where the event was simulcast), the pros outweigh the cons by a longshot.
That said, while I'll be adding videos like crazy, you can check out three of the biggest performances as the first three videos in my Hall of Fame rotation in the video section of my site.
from my Friday concert, wherein we belt out my first live duet in SEVEN YEARS.
-The TWO PART
(due to Youtube's restraints) ULTIMATE EDITION of my epic skit of epic epicness, "Scott Pilgrim vs Comic Con". This one features a few of my buddies who I met this summer at AX Idol (once again solidifying entering that competition as one of the best overall decisions I made in a long time), as well as my team whom many of you have seen by my side over the years both on video and on stage.EDIT (10/17/2010):
Just added two more videos from the Masquerade...WORLD END
, and...get ready for this...Go Go Power Rangers
. Yeah. THAT one. XD These are also in the rotation on the Video page.
Next up? The next phase of the Durarara!! Projects I've been working on, as well as a stop at MangaNext and one more con for the year...but that'll wait for another post. ^_~EDIT (10/15/2010):
Speaking of said project, the pilot for that next phase is up, and aside from directing/editing/scripting duties, I provide the narration for it, so check it out!
Thanks again to all my friends (old and new), as well as all my fans for giving me the chance to go up and do what I love. Let's end this year strong, ok? ^_^
Last minute gig addition!

-Ciné Dramatíque: October 2
Being held at Kinokuniya Bookstore in New York, NY (located at 1073 Avenue of the Americas), I'm making a special appearance as part of this pre-NYAF/gallery opening celebration! Details available from the link above. Hope to see many of you there!
Upcoming Gigs Ahoy!
Posted on 31 Aug 2010 by Mario Bueno
So I've dropped off for a while to prepare the next slew of projects and appearances, and while my next big project is still under wraps for another week or so, here are some upcoming gigs to note:
-Anime Syracuse: September 11, 2010
-New York Anime Fest/Comic Con: October 8-10
(performance + special masquerade exhibition)
I'm so excited to finally be able to announce my return as a NYAF guest as it's really the epicenter of many of the major strides I've made in the last few years, so to get to attend (and do so in style) is always an honor.
I'll have details for all my appearances there in the coming weeks when I get them.
My main NYAF performance is:
Mario Bueno: Aim for the Top (Note)!
Location: Variant Stage
Date: Friday, October 8
Time: 5:15pm-5:45pmUPDATE (9/27): Announcing special guest singer EMI for the first duet performance I'll be doing in over seven years!
Anime Syracuse should be interesting as it's apparently a first year con, so do come by and check it out if you live in the Upstate NY area! Again, details to come when available. ^_^
A good way to end the summer indeed...let's see how much I get to do this coming year, eh? ^_~
