MTAC 2013: Charity Auction - Anime, Music and Pop-culture Gear to Benefit Autism Society of Middle Tennessee





The folks at MTAC are putting together a great charity auction to benefit a worthwhile cause!

Raising some money for a good cause is music to our ears! The MTAC Charity Auction, where we auction off some awesome memorabilia for the Autism Society of Middle Tennessee, has some awesome donations from the world of anime, music and more!

Headlining band The Slants has entered in some personally cherished items to raise money for the Autism Society of Middle Tennessee. As band founder and bassist Simon Young says, "Autism is a cause that's very near and dear to us."

It is to us too, so be sure to show your support when the bidding starts this weekend!


Items up for auction include:

  • Personal voice mail recordings from voice actor guests, such as Todd Haberkorn and Chris Cason.
  • Autographed memorabilia from Hellsing, Fullmetal Alchemist, Final Fantasy, and more hit anime and video games.
  • Anime swag.
  • MTAC merchandise
  • An original master for the Slants' second album, "Slants! Slants! Revolution." It's the only one in the world, the encoded/WAV gold disc that provided the original content for licensing and distribution.
  • An original set of Fender chrome amp "kick stands," originally owned by Bon Jovi and were used during his "Shine" tour. They were originally used on a Fender custom shop cabinet. The Slants used that amp for their first two tours. There are only two pairs of them in the world - one pair is with the Slants, the other is with Bon Jovi.
  • A proof copy of Simon Young's book, How to Get Sponsorships and Endorsements. It's the original and still contains some errors that he caught before it went to press. It's a bestselling book for non-profits and music business.
  • The shirt off Simon Young's back. Simon's pants fetched a decent amount for a charity at a previous MTAC. This time, they're auctioning off clothing worn by the band during their MTAC concert!

Be sure to check out what fellow guest Jonathan Klein has also donated to the auction.

MTAC 2013: Rockers "Powerglove" Merges Metal with Classic Video Game Themes






Bringing their metal covers of classic video game tunes to Music City's Anime Con, MTAC welcomes Powerglove!

Hailing from the outer reaches of flavor country, the Powerglove woodwind quartet is the perfect choice for any bat mitzvah or funeral procession. Top scientists from Powerglove University in Prague have ascertained specific evidence from the children of "Sanchez the Wise" that Powerglove's music is the answer to domestic abuse and gout.


However, clinical trials have yet to prove that Powerglove is in any way effective against dysentery. These four young men, full of bold and fresh flavor, as well as all requisite herbs and spices, will dance for you until the siren call of the "Great Mancuso" beacons us home to the undying realms with the audacity of succulent ham.

"Marvel's - Iron Man 3" TV Spot Reveals Pepper Potts in "Rescue" Armor


Be the first to know when Iron Man 3 tickets are on sale!



Looks like the rumor I reported about a few months back and mentioned during the WDW After Dark weekly webcast about Pepper Potts getting into the Rescue Armor in "Marvel's - Iron Man 3" is coming true. Check out these screen caps from an upcoming TV promo!

Jarvis has Pepper's back!
In Marvel's "Iron Man 3", brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man played by Robert Downey Jr., is pitted against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds. When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy's hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle.

Actually Tony's got Pepper's back.
With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him. As he fights his way back, Stark discovers the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?

Pepper getting blasted in what looks like her Rescue Armor!
Iron Man 3 continues the epic adventures of "Iron Man" and "Iron Man 2", starring Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, Stephanie Szostak, James Badge Dale with Jon Favreau and Ben Kingsley, "Iron Man 3" is directed by Shane Black from a screenplay by Drew Pearce and Shane Black and is based on Marvel's iconic Super Hero Iron Man, who first appeared on the pages of "Tales of Suspense" (#39) in 1963 and had his solo comic book debut with "The Invincible Iron Man" (#1) in May of 1968. "Iron Man 3" arrives in theaters May 3, 2013!

See the spot! What do you think? I think it ROCKS! Go Pepper!
