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
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.
something funny that i've noticed: for some reason, casual fans of a medium are often more strict then actual reviewers/critics. at least for music and for anime. (maybe because there are too many hardcore elitists in those communities)
