  • Cool realization I just had: red, blue and yellow are often called the Primary Colors but on computers they are magenta, cyan and yellow.

    Hm.... Where have i seen those colors before...

    I wonder if kei had that in mind actually, giving them "artificial" colors on purpose to fit the image.

    for me, using a vocal synthesizer in certain styles of music can be more appealing to me than using an actual singer. i feel like the impersonal side of it can draw out certain emotions in the listener, like melancholy. of course, that also depends on how you tune the voice.
    all the whining about the Nintendo Direct being "underwhelming" affirms my belief that people set their expectations too high about pretty much everything. most especially about things that don't mean much in the long run:ring_ani_lili:

    in other news, i tried a new brand of cat food for my cat and he loves it a little too much. won't stop meowing at me, the little gremlin.
    it kinda bothers me how a lot of vocaloid fans are too caught up in the Vocaloid scene specifically to respect anything outside of it. like how whenever someone makes a eurobeat vocaloid song its called Samfree-style, even though eurobeat is a popular genre that has been around for 30 years. or how a lot of weebs from ten years ago used to always compare Hatsune Miku to random Western pop stars of a totally different vein (for some reason this one dude would comment what essentially boiled down to "miku good, meghan trainor bad" on every single vocaloid song lololol). Basically too many people who listen to Vocaloid solely because its not mainstream. The "i'm not like other girls" of music tastes if you ask me.

    Honestly? I haven't seen this mindset anywhere outside of YouTube and certain strains of VocaTwitter since like... 2013. Many, if not most fans nowadays respect it as a facet in a larger picture, enjoying it alongside more mainstream J-pop and K-pop and the likes, while the number of fans who enjoy it by merits of its software and production value grows with each passing year.

    Reading this was like stepping into the past: this was absolutely an issue when I was first active in the fandom, when Miku English had just been announced and everyone cheered that she'd overthrow American pop stars and people still called Kaito "Shion Kaito", but mercifully fans who still think like this are such a small part of this fandom anymore.

    I remember when much of the Western fandom would behave like this as well. A few people like that still exist on YT, but for the most part, I think the fandom has grown up a lot in the sense that more, if not most fans can respect non-Vocaloid artists and genres while still liking Vocaloid.
    whatever happened to that news about a Korean male synth? everyone was talking about it and then it just fell out of conversation.
    i'm not very k-pop oriented but Red Velvet songs are *chefs kiss*. their music sounds like all the best pop songs of the 90s but with an extra energy boost. my kinda vibe

    I love Red Velvet!!! They're practically the only kpop group I follow anymore but I've stayed this long because those girls have the vocal range like no other kpop gg :mirai_ani_lili:

    man i really should get a NND account. its so frustrating finding a really good small producer on NND and not being able to follow them because they don't have a Youtube.

    yeah the new UI feels really nice. i also like how people on NND are more chill and close knit in the Vocaloid community as opposed to Youtube. (i just wish there weren’t so many annoying ads that i can’t understand lol)

    yes!! i always liked the feel on NND more too, it's not a very critical or pressuring environment, and you rarely ever see mean comments on videos (at least from google translate + my almost nonexistent japanese). not having a puplicly displayed liking feature is interesting too, but i kind of like it because it relieves competition / pressure on if or how many people thought your video was "good". If they really REALLY liked it, they'd comment or mylist it :)

    the ads and higher video quality is something you can get when you become a premium member, plus unlimited video posts. i've been sticking with standard for so many years i almost feel like i deserve premium lmao.

    do you use desktop or mobile to watch NND? i used to only use desktop but the NND mobile app is really well layed out too and now i almost use it more than the desktop!!

    as you can see i am a VERY passionate NND > youtube girl :)))

    i usually watch it on desktop, especially to sort of “window shop” for new songs while i work. the only problem with that is that i’m always clicking on thumbnails that i find interesting, so sometimes i neglect my work haha

    speaking of that, i also like how NND will advertise songs to you and recommend you videos with a similar amount of views. Youtube does a similar thing sometimes but for the most part it recommends really old Vocaloid stuff or music that i’ve already heard. i wonder how the algorithms differ on both sites.
