Milestones, Turning Points, and Activity Updates – August 2020

So I’ve been experiencing some creative rejuvenation this month. Also, I’m making significant progress with regards to having a day job. And this blog is already 7 years old. Praise and thanks be to God Almighty very much again, then, and may He keep on helping us all.

Now, I think you’ll be able to see a bit of that rejuvenation in this set of posts:

  1. “Winds of Caution” – an Infinite Stratos fanfiction centered on Charlotte
  2. “Childish Dedication” – a Honkai Impact 3 fanfiction starring Durandal with Cocolia’s orphans
  3. “Within This Wonderful Heat-Haze Daze” – a KonoSuba Kagerou Project fanfiction where Kazuma and his party come across the Mekakushi Dan applying for the Adventurers’ Guild
  4. “Souzou Forest” Tagalog Cover – also, I had enough confidence to share this with my family and friends
  5. “Another Man’s Treasure” – a Persona 4 fanfiction, companion piece to “One Man’s Trash”
  6. Tobby’s Recommendation Yell: nostraightanswer’s SYNTECH 0 also earned a response from the man himself
  7. “Today’s Meal: Purple Prose!” – a Gintama fanfiction, set after “An Artist-Lawyer Hookup Doesn’t Necessarily Mean Copyright Immunity!”

Also, there’s more of my memeing madness on YouTube. And there will be more in the following month. Well, maybe not as much as this passing month had, but still, the meme videos will increase.

As for music stuff, I think I’ll have this month be production time without any posts, considering how big my planned next posts are. Making music videos by myself, especially with my amateur skills, sure is tough…

Fanfics? Yeah, there will be more, of course. As for other writing stuff, I’m also preparing some reflections.

Anything else? Well, more honest and constructive feedback, please.

Tobby’s Recommendation Yell: nostraightanswer’s SYNTECH 0

Tobby’s Recommendation Yell: nostraightanswer’s SYNTECH 0

As I further re-evaluate my sense of what it means to make good art, I’d like to express my appreciation for the double album version of Lupin’s debut lyrical album, a version which now stars both Vocaloid and human singing, and my opinion on how important it is to the Vocaloid scene, especially for the Anglophone and pop-oriented parts of it.

Souzou Forest – TOB Tagalog Cover

Huh, ang tagal na pala since huli akong gumawa ng ganito. At akala ko pa na hindi ko ‘to matutuloy, hahaha~

Anyway, eto, isa pang cover ng isa sa mga pinakapaborito kong kanta, pero sa Tagalog naman! Nabuhayan ng malakas recently ang loob ko para sa pag-translate at sa paggawa ng musika kasi. Saka matagal na ‘to, baka isa o dalawang taon pa nga na tagal, pero nagkaroon ako ng kutob na pwede maging magandang-maganda itong kantahin sa Tagalog. Saka August 15, so ‘yon. XD

Ah, at this time, among other things, may mga harmonies ‘tong take na ‘to, ‘di tulad ng nakaraang attempt ko. Saka gumamit ako ng subtitle template ni vgperson para mas may style yung video saka para mas madali kong trabahuin ang video.

Also, gusto ko talaga ‘to ipakita sa mga kapamilya’t kaibigan ko. Maraming salamat sa Diyos uli! 😀

Ngayon, heto ang mp3, at heto ang lyrics sheet. Pa-credit at link din po kung gusto n’yo din pong gamitin ang lyrics ko para sa mga sariling cover n’yo po.

And of course, honest constructive feedback. Penge po ng honest constructive feedback.

a Honkai Impact 3 fanfiction by The Overlord Bear

Of course, with her history and work ethic, one need not expect her to go easy on some little kids. And so far, Bianka was quite impressed by Cocolia’s most treasured orphans…
