PareFura – Sainou Sampler
March 30, 2012

…………………………

I wanted to make a really long and loving post with all caps that was like OMG I LOVE PAREFURA SO MUCH THEY (insert good things) and (insert really good things) and I just have (insert a very large amount) of love for them because they are just (insert positive qualities) and and and I am officially their biggest fan. OFFICIALLY. MOST OF THE MEMBERS GAVE ME PERMISSION TO BE :D <3

…… Q A Q I’m so tired though and I don’t feel creative enough to think of things to insert and say LOL but I want to blog about Parefura now because VocaFusion Round 3’s VOTING IS NOW OPEN! ^^ It closes at April 1, 2012; 11:59pm (GMT +8).

But uh, this is like the most wonderful and pleasant..thing that I’ve ever seen that is related to scalpels and .. cutting people .. to take their .. talent which is in the form of organs, I think………
BUT YEAH. THIS IS BEAUTIFUL. But I feel like beautiful is the wrong word. I don’t know how to describe this hahaha. xD;; The girls have such pretty voices and the boys sound so handsome. *w* I’m proud of all of them! They keep improving~ And the mixing by Holi! And the animaaaaationnnn by Chiisana and Chiika! THE ART. THAT ART. THE ART. THE COLORING. THE DESIGNS. MARI’S DESIGN I REALLY WANT TO BE MARI <333

Um. How do I end this entry.. ;A;
SUPPORT PAREFURA PLEASE /o/

And I love how the scalpel at the end is just like -sticks out tongue- BEHEHE SUCKER.

Greed
March 29, 2012

Even though I can’t even properly mix, animate, sing, or rap well yet.. now that I have a working tablet, I kind of wish to learn how to draw.
Q A Q

I don’t have the artistic fundamentals though nor the creative visions ;w; Also I suck with tablets since I need that friction you get with pencils ahaha. I’m actually really bad at writing with pen. -mulled over-
And there’s also the fact that I can’t color..

I used to reaaaaaaaaaaally like drawing though even though I wasn’t that good at it ; u ; I drew a lot when I was younger and I always drew, like.. pixies and princesses and stuff HAHA. <3

I don’t even remember how old I was when this was drawn but this was basically Water Pixie ; u ;

And then and then! In middle school, my friends and I wanted to try making an anime [drawn in Microsoft Paint hehe] called Candy Basket which was based off of Fruits Basket except we all had characters and were gonna voice act as them~ I was the main character Evi who was equivalent to Kyo-kun. :’3 I related to her a lot because she was bullied and misjudged.

Random but this picture is because when my youtube account [I forget if it was waterpixie or waterpixieva…] reached 400 subscribers, I was gonna do a video where it was like.. me interacting with an animated Evi LOLOLOL yeah that never pulled through but I tried!

Speaking of Candy Basket, I actually wrote that as my “novel” in 8th grade although it’s kind of an abridged version with no details and it doesn’t dig into all the characters’ ~*~extensive deep, complex, and thought out background stories~*~ haha. I started rewriting that sometime in high school and I’d love to finish rewriting it someday. It’s not a bad story :’D I think I give up on animating it though, even though the anime’s opening was fully animated (we wrote lyrics for it and I sang an Evi solo version!) and we had some parts of the first episode. ;w; Candyba even had a website and my friends drew fanart. It was gonna be awesome HAHA. Definitely one of my favorite things to remember about middle school. ^^

…this post ended up a lot longer than I was hoping.

self-portrait
March 27, 2012

I still have to blog about Parefura’s awesome VocaFusion round 3 entry but I’ll wait til tomorrow when I’m feeling a bit more genki =w= Since I love them so much and I want to be able to express it at my best..

ANYWAY.

Chiisana and I were talking about a project we’re working on together and how we’re gonna be a singing duo/animating duo/mixing duo ANDDDD we’re gonna try for our own art too. :’D Well, art-wise we’re no longer a duo because she can draw and I’m only mediocre LOL. The only thing is that she has no tablet.

BUT!!! I uh.. tested out my tablet which I haven’t touched in about 3 years and surprisingly it still works *A* I had no idea!! I thought it would be broken or that I would’ve lost the pen. I’m gonna let her borrow it when we hang out this Sunday~ Anyway, Chii asked me to draw her something so I crappily drew a self-portrait hurhurhur =v=

This doodle is called
“Ebah’s response to Chiisana in general”

[2:22:02 AM] Chiisana: SO CUUTEEE
[2:22:05 AM] Chiisana: QvQ
[2:22:11 AM] Eva:
[2:22:13 AM] Eva: ok…………..

【Gemini ft Erin & Fyre】 PONPONPON (acoustic ver.)
March 26, 2012

Thank you so much to our amazing friends Erin and Rob/Fyre for featuring as our very special guests in this song~ Their beautiful voices were a perfect addition. ^^ If you haven’t already, do consider checking out their channels–we promise talent.
Also, we’d like to apologize to our special guests for the 3-month-long wait.. Now they know how slow Gemini is. [Heck, we still aren’t even done with Secret Santa yet…]

Please enjoy our rendition of this very relaxing arrangement of PONPONPON, originally by Kyary Pamyu Pamyu. :’D
And if you get tired of soft!Gemini, don’t fret because badass!Gemini is coming back to town soon…in May.

Coincidentally, “acoustic” is the theme for VocaFusion’s chorus battle round 3! Our own Chiisana and Ryan are participating in the group PareFura, and although Vivid Chemistry–of which Rob is a member–is no longer in the competition, please support them all!!

[ have we redeemed ourselves from troll status yet? ]

… ;_____; So many regrets about both the video and the mixing….. >< I’m sorry. I literally learned how to EQ for the very first time for this, and it sucks ’cause it’s ACOUSTIC and EQ is sooo crucial and my mistakes are just SO OBVIOUS ahhhh. Even though I bugged List, Ian, and Kousei for EQ advice, it still ended up cruddy and I hate EQing. Regret regret. I wish I were better at both mixing and animating. ]’: For all the flaws in either aspects, I’ll accept responsibility. ;w;

I kind of wish I kept a running timer on how many hours I spent on this! Q A Q It’s probably.. over 50 hours LOL. But yeah. I spent almost every breathing moment when I wasn’t at school, at work, or studying.. working on the video or mix. I actually gave up some sleep for this too a-and there was even once when I cried out of frustration ;w; Soooooooo I would really, really, really appreciate it if you could give this a watch! ^^ Even though PONPONPON is an overdone song, give us a chance? ; u ;

Everyone sounds beautiful though. :’D One of the things I love about Gemini is that we all have vibrato! Well, Jay’s are “wafers.” =w= And then Erin and Robert have super nice vibratos as well~ >A< <3 And I looove the versatility of Gemini! We’re trying to explore different genres. :D From PONPONPON acoustic to DBSK’S Rising Sun.. Hehe. I think all of us can have power and be soft or be cute, and we can all somewhat’ish….SOMEWHAT all rap to SOME extent, kinda.

On another note, I’m really happy that a lot of people said that this was relaxing/soothing/calming and that they could fall asleep to this. ; u ; <3 yeeey

Also, I hope you enjoy all of the cavity-inducing cute objects that I cropped out HAHAHA. I’ll probably reuse them for future cutesy animations since I cropped out so many of them.

(I only ever really use that expression towards food..)


March 25, 2012

Seeing my high school friends today–although I love them–made me realize just how different I am from them. I can’t relate to them; they can’t relate to me. They don’t really know what kind of person I am and what kinds of things I like to do. They have no idea how much effort and time I put into things like recording, mixing, and video-editing, and don’t really care.

This was my first time hanging out with someone irl other than Chiisana [-clings to her-] for a really long time, though. ;w;

-pathetic and forever alone-

Back in high school, my friend and I joked about how when college starts, I’m going to be a home shut-in… We were so accurate. =w=

Mozaik Role
March 25, 2012


【りst】 英語で「モザイクロール」を歌ってみた

; u ; Pimping List’s new short cover of Mozaik Role. His voice is so powerful and full of energy, and his mixing is really crisp and professional-sounding~ He’s improved a LOT! I’m proud~

Haha trying to spread word about this as much as I can because he seemed rather dejected and discouraged from the dislikes on the video—which I think are misrepresentation of the general response to this impressive cover—and imo this deserves as much love as it can potentially get. ^^

.. /back to the world of doing nothing but mixing

Only for Gemini would I mix until almost 5 AM and then wake up at 10:30 AM to continue working on the mix before I had to go out for lunch.

Sherlock
March 23, 2012

[4:57:51 PM] Eva: i haven’t heard Sherlock yet xD
[4:57:57 PM] Eva: and i’m actually.. ;w; not that curious

[5:04:01 PM] Chiisana: wait how were you able to make that “I’m not that curious” joke even though you haven’t heard it or the teaser
[5:04:01 PM] Chiisana: LOL
[5:04:17 PM] Eva: o.o
[5:04:19 PM] Eva: what do you mean?
[5:04:23 PM] Eva: wait
[5:04:27 PM] Eva: don’t tell me that’s part of the song LOL
[5:04:30 PM] Chiisana: ………
[5:04:32 PM] Chiisana: the chorus is
[5:04:36 PM] Chiisana: “I’M SO CURIOUS~ YEAHH!”
[5:04:37 PM] Chiisana: …..
[5:04:40 PM] Eva: LMAO LMAO LMAO
[5:04:48 PM] Chiisana: I thought you were making a reference.
[5:04:50 PM] Chiisana: LOLLLLLLLLL

But yeah, it’s sad but I’ve had absolutely no connection to the entertainment world recently LOL -goes back to EQing-

I’M SO SORRY, SHINee and EXO AND ALL OTHER COMEBACK/DEBUT GROUPS Q A Q I’ll catch up with you guys laterrrr
