May 8th, 2011 -- Upper Darby, PA -- As of February 2011, The Asian Karaoke Idol Invitational celebrated it's 5th year in existence. Both professionally, as well as personally, the organization & all of its members (the Team TAKII Coalition) have gone through a plethora of changes. Not everything came easy & at times, painful decisions had to be made. However, through it all, "the world's most extreme Asian culture fusion festival" has endured through 10 seasons of complete & utter awesomeness, with a new generation of fusion festivals being born in the form of TAKII 11 ~Stage On!~! Let's take the time now to give you the inside scoop on what to expect & be prepared for come May 14th - 15th, 2011 at Philly, PA's own The Rotunda:
Even though pre-registration for #1 Contender's Passes & Vendor Table Slots is over, you pay still purchase #1 Contender's Passes at-the-door during TAKII 11 weekend! For only $15.00, you will acquire the ability to compete in ALL of the festival's contests, shows, & tourneys all through the duration of the season. Yes, to enter The Asian Karaoke Idol Invitational is (& will remain) free. However, purchasing a Pass (in addition to its perks) gives this organization the ability to grow & expand into new territories of unchartered Asian culture fandom. Ever wonder how we can get guests like Mandy Mefford, Mario Bueno, & Elderberry to come & perform for us? Monies earned by the sale of #1 Contender's Passes makes it possible for us to accommodate our guests, as well as purchase prizes, Asian edibles, donate to our "Charity Beneficiaries", & save money for future seasons of The Asian Karaoke Idol Invitational. What you could spend in a trip to Hibachi you could insure your place amongst the most elite of TAKII fanatics with your purchase of a #1 Contender's Pass! While there will be free festivities to take part in, you will be asked to show your #1 Contender's Pass for any Pass-exclusive happenings that require it.
For EVERYONE who is attending TAKII 11 ~Stage On!~, downloading your copy of our "Hardcore Handbook" is essential in maximizing your enjoyment this season! Along with spiffy shout-outs & guest bios, it comes with an easy-to-follow schedule & program (going as far as to differentiate which festivities are free & which ones require a #1 Contender's Pass). Think of the "Hardcore Handbook" as your TAKII yearbook of sorts, minus gratuitous "OMG, I looked like THAT....ewww gross" photos ^_^. Printed copies of this season's "Hardcore Handbook" will be in limited supply, with #1 Contender's Pass holders being the 1st ones to get copies. Towards the end of TAKII 11 weekend, we will be asking TAKII fanatics ways to improve this precious resource (as well as the festival itself), so come prepared with constructive feedback!
Hordes of fans come to each season of The Asian Karaoke Idol Invitational each season, but only a core group of Co-Coordinators was responsible for making each TAKII that much easier to run. Without these leaders of the Team TAKII Coalition, much of what we now enjoy & the memories that have been created would not have been possible. One of our founding Co-Coordinators, Dan Rubel, has made the decision to retire his in-person fusion festival duties this season & become an adviser for the TAKII organization. While his antics during "Otaku Jeopardy" & our "Ota-Raves" will be missed (gorilla-suited man + Michael Jackson's "Thriller" = AWESOME (from TAKII 6 ~NintenDecision 2008~)), Dan will forever hold a special place in every TAKII fanatic's heart (^_^). As a Co-Coordinator was stepping down, other Team TAKII Coalition members were stepping up, namely Rose "Yu-Gi-Oh!" Rappaport & Peter "Cloud" Gerber! These 2 amazing young people will not only be responsible for The Asian Karaoke Idol Invitational's 1st festival/convention etiquette panel (for "X-Treme X-Posé), but will be the driving force behind our ultra-ambitious charity activity named "TAKII: A Rotunda Beautification Project". With this being the start of a "new generation" of fusion festivals, it's only fitting that Rose & Peter be installed as official TAKII Co-Coordinators at TAKII 11 ~Stage On!~ in front of a crowd of their peers....the TAKII faithful!
Before we know it, TAKII 11 ~Stage On!~ will be upon us all. Just how did less than 6 months pass since our last season so fast? The answer is simple....because of everyone's enthusiastic & passionate support for everything The Asian Karaoke Idol Invitational stands for. A season of TAKII may only be a few days long, but the memories that are created & the relationships that are born can & do last forever. Let's get ready to celebrate life, liberty, & the pursuit of all that is extreme in Asian culture fandom as only fanatics like you guys can....see you at TAKII 11 ~Stage On!~ at Philly, PA's The Rotunda on May 14th - 15th, 2011, minna-san!!!!Team TAKII PR CoalitionTAKII
