Singing Songs


Or, Uta Utai. An original song sung by the Kaito Vocaloid. (They do a lot of covers.) A really pretty, and amazing sounding song.:iconchibihungaryplz:Shows his range well. Doesn't sound too computer-like either. I like when they get his voice to sound more 'human'. Someone said in the comments for the vid about the lyrics, that it's Vocaloid in a nutshell. I agree.:iconchibinitalyplz:Well, here's the vid:

It actually got a bit warm yesterday. Even though it looked freezing out. Weird. It's doing pretty much the same thing today. Parents left a little later than they expected yesterday. Hope things are going well at the retreat. I got a surprising amount of stuff done yesterday. Wahoo!:dummy:

I managed to work on things like my character sheets, building descriptions, editing of Alliance, and planning the next oc face I'll be working on. All related to my story.:la:Finished 'book 1' of Dune. Really part 1 of the first book. Next 'book' is Muad'Dib. I think I might move on to another book, and once I'm finished with that, go back to 'book 2'. That way I'll get to read something that feels 'fresher'. I think at about 200 pages it's ok to stop for now.:iconheroamericaplz:Next one on my list's Timeline. If I remember correctly, it sounded like it'll be awesome. I think I've seen the movie, and it was pretty good. They say the original book versions are usually better, so that should be fun.:iconus-xdplz: 

Started writing out and translating the contents page of the June edition of You Maga. Thought it'd be interesting. And, it is so far. Afterschool Charisma finally had the next chapter up!:iconfrancisplz:Only took me like 5 minutes to read it though. Waited a whole month for that.:iconromanoplz:Oh, well. Good thing I'm reading other mangas in between updates. 

Went through another cookbook. The way it was laid out, was really heard to read. But, I found some things. It's an American/Canadian cooking club cookbook compilation of all it's members' submitted recipes. Really old, too. Like from early 70s I think. So, they're recipes are worded really oddly.:iconchibijapanplz:Ate the leftover sausage and sweet pepper thing I made a while back and had it with pasta for last night's dinner. There's still a ton of pasta leftover, since I made the whole package, and obviously only had a serving. I'm not sure what I'll have tonight, though.:iconkikuplz:Parents are coming home late, so they're eating out. 

Delicious Gakuin was bizarre, yet hilarious. I kind feel sorry for them. Rouma's got to be one of the weirdest characters. He likes to eat onions raw.:iconitalyishorrifiedplz:I think he likes to eat anything raw, actually. He always carries an old dirty frying pan, and has a name for it. 

Played my clarinet for an hour again! Yay!:iconyayhanatamagoplz:I definitely feel more 'into' it when I play for that long. And, I'm improving quickly. Played some Mozart and Beatles tunes. The Beatles book is really oddly written. Went over chirps. It's been a long time since I've stopped and worked on them. They're faster than trills, so they're a lot more difficult. I'm also going over my really high notes. It's not that I've forgotten how to do these things, it's just I've been skipping over them for a long time.:iconusaplz:So, I'm a little rusty. If I keep practicing them, I'll be caught up to what I was like before. 
In Gosick, Victorique's forced to go to class. She calls Avril a farting newt, after Avril taunted her. Later, Avril calls her a frilly witch. Kind of funny.:iconsleepygreeceplz:Leviathan's been long dead, and was a phony alchemist. He was a good magician, though. Conveniently, another magician shows up at the clock tower where Victorique's investigating. He's been after her for a while, but couldn't do anything at the clock tower because the maintenance guy popped in. This magician is also in the opening theme. Where he eventually kidnaps her. Wonder if that comes true?:iconwtfukplz:
In Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei, sensei talked about the Ringelmann effect. It's when many people work together, the amount of work each individual does decreases. People end up slacking off. Example, they discovered over 6000 marine species and you care less and less about new ones. Another, when the page number's big, you start skimming. Next, the students were playing tug-of-war, with sensei being the one tugged in both directions. The students were yelling he belongs to us. It was about unfair decisions. 

deviantART fave: -Chibi America- A really cute drawing of Chibi America (or when America was little), from Hetalia.
