Guys, in light of the topic I have planned for this week, and recent events that have prompted this, I want to spend some more time making sure I do the topic justice. With that in mind, I’m going to have to take an extra day or two to make sure I do this justice. To be honest, it has been hard to write what I want to say and I want to make sure I say it properly. So expect this week’s topic Tuesday to come out around Thursday/Friday. In the mean time I will be posting a Video Spotlight as a make-up for the lack of the standard update for today.
For those of you who don’t know or haven’t heard, Patrick Bohnet, also known as Quu, passed away earlier this week. He was a great inspiration and one of the founding members of a-m-v.org as well as pioneering the technical side of AMV Contests. He has played a major role in Anime Weekend Atlanta’s VAT, making it a contest and department that is used as a standard for AMV rooms all over. I own what I know and do as a contest coordinator to him. He was a proud father and husband who loved his family and loved cooking as much as he loved AMVs. I will miss him as will many others. He has touched so many lives, and many more lives through his work without them even knowing it.
