I know I am late to the game, but I want to wish Kitty and Mimmy White a very happy birthday. Normally I would go on Hello Kitty Online, but it has been reported that the service has ended and the servers been taken down. The slow decline of Hello Kitty Online deserves a separate blog post.
Happy Birthday to Mimmy and Kitty White
Two weeks ago I was interviewed by Saumeh and Marty of the Small Gift Big Story podcast. The pos cast is about us fans of Sanrio and Hello Kitty and our love and stories. I am very honored to be interview them and gave them free run of my blogs for pictures of the cons I took Hello Kitty and Chococat . The podcast is now up on soundcoud and Itunes.
The sound suffers because I use my phone and I talk to fast. I discuss my motivation and love of Hello Kitty influenced by both my time in Japan and my involvement in the Furry Fandom. I hope I represented the fandom well.
Saumeh and Marty are neat people and Hello Kitty fans the been interviewed by a major paper covering Hello Kitty’s 40th anniversary http://www.nydailynews.com/life-style/kitty-festival-marks-character-40th-birthday-article-1.1989289
It is a honor to be interviewed by both of you.
I Suspect Portland is a whistle stop on the way to Seattle for the opening of Hello! Exploring the Supercute World of Hello Kitty at the Experience Music Project . I picked up a mug and macarons later, I shared, in the spirit of Hello Kitty with friends at the mall furmeet.
