  • Whoo! If Google Translate isn't deceiving me, Xingchen departed from the Guangdong post office about two hours ago, so she'll probably be at the warehouse within the next twelve hours! I paid extra (a whole $0.89) to have her booking process expedited, so I'm praying all this happens while I'm still awake, so she can be shipped out ASAP...
    She stood before him, not only offering herself to him, but granting him the honor of looking upon her. Untouchable, yet already his, of her own volition. And how a goddess in flesh and blood could so wholly love him? He'd never know, but he'd never object.

    ...I'm very thankful I ended up never finishing and publishing this, because damn, I wanna use that for a Vocaloid fic. Untouched it's very KaiMeiesque, but a few adjustments and it would also very nicely fit with my portrayal of Kiyoteru's relationship with Gakupo.

    I wish I was half as good at writing now as I was mid-mental breakdown in 2017.

    I'm just embarrassed that my best material was for fucking Kung Fu Panda. Nothing wrong with it of course, but like... c'mon. Now that I'm writing for humans/full humanoids, can I please have an inkling of my old talent back??
    Me: "My video keeps being blocked. It's a sign from God that I'm not meant to be a vocalsynth cover artist anymore. I don't know what to do with my life. I will forever be lost in limbo, questioning my purpose."

    Patuk: "...have you tried using a different video?"

    YouTube: "Lol yeah, we're just pissed you used that video, the audio's just fine. Enjoy your upload!"

    Sometimes I wonder how I've made it this far in life without Patuk reminding me of alternative solutions. :yohioloid_lili:
    Superbuy: "With this added service you've paid for, any order placed between 9:00 and 18:00 Beijing time will be responded to in an hour's time! : ) "

    Me, having placed the order at 9:00 Beijing time sharp, violently refreshing the page every two minutes: "SHOW ME THE GIRL"
    God, don't let me be too late. God, don't let me be too late. God, don't let me be too late. God, don't let me be too late. God, don't let me be too late. God, don't let me be too late...

    (So as to avoid sounding ominously like something is wrong... I caved, and I'm hoping I didn't wait too long.)
    I’ll post pictures tomorrow when I have the energy to get back on my laptop, but I have two new family members! Their names, per Patuk’s suggestions, are Sámo and Bibi. Sámo is a 2ft tall realistic black bear plushie with a red bow around his neck, and Bibi is a 3ft long plush shark with a heart on her side.

    I’ve always wanted to get those huge plushies that Walmart sells during Valentine’s, and dammit, I finally did. I’m SO happy.
    Hhhhhhhhhh I knew I should have gotten Xingchen earlier. I didn't anticipate they'd pull her so suddenly like this. But, again, she's Quadimension's darling, and letting her fall to the wayside would be like Crypton letting Miku stagnate and die off.

    C'mon, Xingchen V5, make 2021 great again...

    My ass is ready for all the fancy A/R they'd give her on V5 :kanon_lili:

    Wait they’re updating her to V5?
    patuk
    patuk
    Nope, that hasn't been comfirmed. It's just a guess we've based on what happened to Tianyi ( they let her boxes run out several months ago and now she's officially getting V5 ) and the fact Stardust on SynthV is very unlikely to happen.
    I keep trying to hype myself up more for AI banks, just in case they’re here to stay, but... I dunno, they all sound the same to me. They all have that Sound to them that makes them lose their uniqueness after the second or third time I listen to them. No matter how astonishingly realistic they sound, I can’t make myself care about them because there’s just so little difference between them.

    @parallax_fifths I realize that, but what gives those vbs their AI ability is also the different sampling method and I feel like that affects the voicebank's performance as well, resulting in different sound and behaviour, even when manually tuned by a person and not AI, we feel like that factors in the end product sounding less personalized but I do realize that's more on the subjective end, if you feel like it sounds different when tuned by individual person that's ofc fine.

    On a side note, I've run into a few instances where Saki AI sings fart noises partway through a note (with or without tuning). It's not quite digital noise, but something "wetter" sounding. Your non-AI voicebanks can't do that!

    Shoutout to my high school drama teacher, who constantly bemoaned how babied teenagers were and routinely cussed at us and told us our work was bad in an attempt to "toughen you up and treat you like adults", only to turn right around and say "Aren't you a little YOUNG to be reading that?" when I, then 17, cited A Clockwork Orange as my favorite book. (I first read it at 13.)

    She was The Ultimate Boomer, and I miss bitching about her with my friends dearly.
    I'm pleasantly surprised at the outrage many, if not most, are showing over the Capitol Riot. My own father, a staunch Trump supporter, told me that, after that, he'll never place a vote for Trump again should he run for any other kind of office. Many stragglers from my old church on my Facebook initially expressed sympathy and support, but now they're realizing just how barbaric and pointless it all was.

    What's it say about the state of my country when I'm genuinely shocked that not even Republicans are defending a literal riot/terrorist attack? Even our ultra-conservative local news station is referring to the rioters as "extremists". For once, I'm proud.
    One more try before I take this to Twitter, since it's now official: I'm getting Gumi V4's full boxed set!! That means I'll have multiples of her Native, Power, and Sweet VBs. So would anyone like them? They're $40 a piece or $100 for all three!

    No worries Cafe! And Twitter's just... I tend to avoid most social media outside of Facebook, as most of my Facebook is just cats, skincare, and petty gossip, but Twitter has been brutal every time I've been on it, to say nothing of VocaTwitter... it's just too much for me, personally.

    That's fine by me, Tema! Not to worry.
    According to my page, it's been about half a year since my last purchase from Buyee (an old copy of Luka's V2, which I STILL need to use).

    Y'all know me. I shop to make things seem okay. I think it's time to break that half-year spell.

    i also shop to make things seem okay, but sadly my bank account doesnt think thats healthy and has put a stop to my actions. hmph.
    Mother Nature decided to rear her ugly head two weeks early, so my hopes of a productive day have been greatly diminished. But! I made decent progress on Kingslayer last night, and I wanna have it up by the end of next week. Here's hoping!

    Oh yes I've heard good things about hyaluronic acid. I need it a lot for my skin when i live in Nevada but I usually use it as a body lotion, I haven't tried it as a face moisturizer. I will probably need to pick up a lot more if my doctor lets me get isotretinoin this time. Last time he pushed for the antibiotic first and the isotretinoin as a last resort,,,, but it is last resort time i tell you lol. :wil_lili:

    When it comes to hyaluronic acid moisturizers, Neutrogena's Hydro Boost moisturizer is an excellent starting point! If your skin's sensitive to fragrance then go for the Extra Dry Skin formula - don't be thrown off by the name, I have combo-oily skin and I can still use it twice daily.
