Milestones, Turning Points, and Activity Updates – July 2021

So I kinda recently remembered that my bucket list is actually three bullets right now because of the Lisa the Tearer Project. Anyway, yo, really busy month be ending soon, and despite and through all the pressure that came with this month I helped make this busy, I’m glad to be able to do a lot of what I want to do. Still, I definitely can do a lot better, so yeah, praise and thanks be very much again to God Almighty, and may He keep on helping us all.

Now, more about my activities during July 2021. Lisa the Tearer finally ends his two-month music upload arc, with this month’s music featuring a vocal cover of Rico Blanco’s “Amats” and an original song titled “Restless.” I also made an English rap remix of DECO*27’s “The Vampire” and a vocal cover of Kiara Takanashi’s “SPARKS.” And then there are two fanfics: one for Ao-chan Can’t Study! and one for Nijisanji. And yeah, lot more impulse posts here, alright. Definitely a challenge, especially with my day job’s workload having grown heavier, but again, I think it’s all pretty worthwhile one way or another. Besides, everyday’s gotta be a worthwhile challenge, right?

Also, about the vlogs and meme vids, I feel like I’ve gone a bit slower about making and posting them, but I also feel like I’m improving as a public speaker, among other things. And I don’t know if you’ve noticed before, but it’s not like I won’t be posting new vids there in between the time after this sort of blog post and before the next blog post. Oh, and seriously, those vids are also supposed to be another “Crap guy who needs to improve and get help here, you’ve been warned” sign, if not a clearer one, for everyone who wants to follow me around.

And with that and another request for honest constructive feedback, I’m ending this blog post, yo~

Kiara Takanashi – SPARKS – TOB Vocal Cover

Another cover of a song written and produced by KIRA, and with the addition of this sunny phoenix named Kiara Takanashi, I’ve once again added variety to them musician VTubers I’ve covered, although they’re still all holos, hahaha~ Oh, and there’s also this production being probably the third one which I consider a vocal cover with added raps.

And yeah, this one’s a pretty impulse production. Or, well, more impulse than my usual, I guess. Though ironically, during the early parts of the recording process, I usually found myself going too slow with my singing. As for what I particularly like about my performance here, those would be my added raps and my rough and wild voice moments. Also, I think my video encoding skills improved some more here, considering how I figured out how to really make this vid HD with the tools I have. And it’s been a while since I last used a reprint of a source MV for a cover vid.

I’d also like to thank Shigeru very much again for continuing to wonderfully put up with this more or less weekly and month-long barrage of work I’ve been giving him right now. Special mention also goes to him keeping up with my orders that include rapping. Also, I’d like to apologize again for being slow with my responses to his updates, especially considering how I send all those orders with such short timeframes. Gotta take care of myself better and be less of a burden and more of a help not only for myself but also for others, alright.

And now, here’s this cover’s mp3.

And of course, don’t forget to give me honest constructive feedback, please~

DECO*27 – The Vampire – TOB English Rap Remix

Rapid-fire rapping plus ceiling-hitting singing really made this a lot of work on my part, alright. And then there’s Shigeru having to deal with another piece of chaos from me, hahaha… X”D

And yes, I intended to be that rougher with this, even down to the visuals. Sure, the original’s already pretty fun, and financial constraints certainly factored into my visual production choices, but I felt the impulse to rap over this with more monstrosity (probably my history of being a failure of a boyfriend calling to me there at best), and I don’t think fancier visuals would help drive that vibe more effectively. The rapid-fire rapping also wasn’t in my earlier plans for this, and it only happened because I realized that said earlier plans didn’t feel like something that was really pushing my rapping abilities. I also wanted to add color to the video text, but instinct told me that that would be too jarring, so yeah. Oh, and I very much enjoy those yells~

Now, I’d like to send my thanks to Shigeru again for the audio engineering work. And there’s also my thanks to mauweeen, this vid’s illustrator, for the quick and sharp avatar work~

And of course, here’s the mp3 copy of this cover, and here’s the lyrics sheet. Don’t forget to credit and link me if you’re using my stuff!

Also, please set me on fire better with honest constructive feedback!
