possible are also glad to announce that full details regarding its 13 TAKII Premier
festivities have now been posted to the official TAKII website, including 4 special features (details for which came from our "Events
" section, http://takii.pdnmz.com/events.html
"WHO'S GOT NO TALENT!?" SHOW
In what started out as a half-baked joke at a TLO
club meeting, the "Who's Got No Talent!? Show
" was born & has grown into 1 of the most entertaining portions of the TAKII World Tour
, making its seasonal debut at TAKII 5
! The "Who's Got No Talent!? Show
" is completely FREE to enter, as you will pay a price in epic LOLZ to get up on stage do what everyone on this planet was born to do: SHOW OFF, even if what you are to "show" should have been kept to yourself (^_* haha). Musicians/vocalists get 1st preference, but all who participate will be judged equally sarcastic by their own peers: the TAKII 5
enthusiasts! All that is required to participate is a good sense of TAKII
-branded humor, a talent to showcase, & the belief that there is "no shame in your game" (lol).
THE GREAT TAKII DEBATE: NINTENDO VS SEGA
Come one, come all, ye Nintendo & Sega fanboiz & fangurls! At yet another royal whim of TLO
President Dan Rubel, he will be hosting The Great TAKII Debate: Nintendo VS Sega
. Unlike his open-ended forum, this 1 will work slightly more like an actual debate. Participants will be split up into pro-Nintendo & pro-Sega squads, with 1 participant at a time stepping up to their respective podium. Dan will pose a series of questions, with each side given ample time to defend their position & score points based on accuracy, charisma, ability to adhere to the rules, & overall presentation. No one is to speak out of turn, or go over their time limit. When all is said & done, Dan will award the winning team the Great Debate Championship! Who needs to see another Presidential debate when they can come to TAKII 5
& participate in on of their own!?
WIN, LOSE, OR DRAW: ARTIST ALLEY EDITION
For those artists out there who either aren't content with just manning your table at TAKII 5
, or have not been able to register a table spot before they all ran out, then this gameshow is for you. TAKII
is proud to debut this season "Win, Lose, Or Draw: Artist Alley Edition
"! Artisans will be chosen at random, lined up on stage with nothing but a large easel & marking/drawing utensils. The gameshow host will then let the artist select a random term from a mystic bag of holding (....quite mystic, might I add ^_*), after which time the artist will have a specific amount of time in which to draw said term & have the TAKII
faithful guess at what it is supposed to be. No one is allowed to give hints, with answers only being accepted once your hand has been raised & acknowledged. The artisan who is able to have the audience guess more of his drawings correctly will receive the title of "Win, Lose, Or Draw: Artist Alley Edition
" Champion! The drawings/sketchings produced from this gameshow will then be autographed by the artists themselves & auctioned off for this season's charity beneficiary.
TAKII GUEST & PERFORMER Q&A
Are you surprised that it took us 4 previous seasons to figure out we needed this kind of programming!? So are we (LOL)! Our inaugural instance of Guest & Performer Q&A
is your chance to ask those questions you couldn't ask while your favorite performer was on stage, or to ask for an autograph from a guest you have had a secret crush on (....ahh, the screaming fanboys & fangirls ^_^). This is also prime time for members of the multimedia press to conduct interviews, take group pics, & generally pick the minds of our esteemed guests & performers for TAKII 5
(details for which can be found in our "Guests & Performers
" section). Time might be limited, but the memories of TAKII 5'
s Guest & Performer Q&A
will last forever.
Stay tuned to future press releases for more TAKII Premier insight.
With only 100 or so days left before TAKII 5
in April 5th-6th 2008, things are sure to steadily get taken to the extreme behind-the-scenes. In the meantime, we all sincerely appreciate all of your support & are eagerly looking forward to making TAKII 5
our best season yet!
