  • Me: "My stuff doesn't get much exposure and it deeply affects my confidence. I can change that by using more popular synths more often, like the Cryptonloids or Eleanor, even some Utaus!"

    Also Me: "SAKI I'M COMIN' FOR YA BITCH"
    A concept: if the videos on Xingchen's Bili/YouTube are anything to go by, she was the first of the Medium5 sisters to materialize after ZERO split herself into five. She then travels to Earth and delivers the icosahedron to the ocean, which brings Haiyi to life; going by this pattern, we might assume Xingchen's the one who "awakened" her sisters. She's depicted as a being of light and energy, both because she literally holds power over the element of aether and because, well, she's a nice girl.

    So Minus is what could have happened, had ZERO's split not gone so well. Perhaps, instead of sorrow, ZERO was filled with rage. Perhaps Xingchen herself was simply evil, or overwhelmed with the power of her element. Either way, she was born as Minus, who seeks to keep Metranon's Cube to herself to exploit its power; rather than help her sisters, she seeks to hunt and kill them, so that no one will stand in her way.

    ...so yeah, basically the "Minus is Edgy Xingchen" take, just slightly more fleshed out and fueled by exhaustion and caffeine.
    We made it to September and Eleanor's preorders still haven't been announced. The whole month of August was a damn lie. GIVE US OUR QUEEN, VOLOR

    (At your own time of course, it's important to take your time so that the end result will outshine her Gen1/Gen2 Lite and we're willing to wait for that! Just... very eager.)
    Me: “I just had to dish out $800 in vet bills and my GoFundMe’s not going anywhere. I can’t even TOUCH any card until Friday, much less buy anything other than necessities.”

    Also me, refreshing my email every five seconds: “RI-ON! RI-ON! RI-ON!”

    ...at least White Rabbit offers another option besides DHL and Seamail. Here’s hoping it doesn’t break me too badly. :yohioloid_lili:

    And don’t even get me STARTED on Minus and Eleanor Pro... why now, sales? Why now?
    Every time I see Miki up for sale on Mercari, I have to battle the irresistible urge to snatch her up. I don't even like Miki very much. Why is she the one to constantly trigger my retail therapy addiction? :yohioloid_lili:
    I'm thinking I need to strive to be like Mitchie M... he advertised one of his very first Vocaloid songs as "HATSUNE MIKU SINGS LIKE A HUMAN!", yet he's considered one of the sweetest big-name producers the fandom has.

    A big reason I don't let myself get too confident is because I'm terrified it'll go to my head and I'll become an awful person. But if Mitchie M can know his worth right off the bat and still be a good person, I can too, right?
    Aaaaaaaaaah I forgot how much I love working with Nemu! Considering her status as V4 Gachapoid, you'd think she's a pain to work with, but... she's not. She ranks up there with Len V4X Power as one of the easiest, most pleasant VBs to work with on my computer. I've really gotta use her more!

    (Also, I lied, another update: Binx had to have his leg shaved so he could take an IV, so now he looks like he has a single boot on his front right foot. Every single time I see it, I internally yell "BOOTS WITH THE FUR WITH THE FUUUUUUR" )

    i've mostly just done some plug n play with him, but he's been sooo good omg! maybe the people who said he's hard to work with were trying to make him not sound like gachapoid and that's what made it difficult to work with? i'm just theorizing. so far, if you're embracing his quirkyness he's really fun!

    It's wonderful seeing fellow fans of Nemu here:nemu_smile_lili:Speaking of her demo songs, the album released to advertise her did not do much justice for her either.
    Gachapoid is another of my favorites. I'm surprised techno producers don't use him much. His voice fits techno very well.

    I’m actually planning on buying Nemu when i get piapro, so thats good to hear that she’s easy to use!
    This will hopefully be my last update on my idiot cat, because he’s bouncing back beautifully! I was bawling to Patuk last night because he was still lethargic and showing no interest in food. Before I left for work today, he was cuddly and active and ate himself a nice lunch. Knock on wood, but I think we’re in the clear! At the very least, the worst is behind us.
    Oh God. I forgot I'd bought Rion V4 through a proxy... and now I have to pay for shipping. One sick cat and $800 later.

    God help me.

    On the bright side! Binx is finally back home!! He's still sleepy, but more alert than he was before I brought him in. I had to give him his meds then wash his butt as soon as we got home, so now he's skeptical of me, but he's pooping and eating and finally acting like he's feeling better!

    (Also, I've started a GoFundMe to assist with the vet bills! Since I took him to an emergency clinic, they demanded payment up-front, so the sooner I get the money back, the less trouble I'll be in down the line.)
    YOOOOOOOOO! That PSA I mentioned with the song no one can find? Someone made a video about it, and my comment regarding the song made it into the video! It's kinda hard to catch, but here! This is so cool holy shit

    Maybe it’s from the stress of my cat being in the hospital, or maybe it’s just one of those days, but I’m feeling especially discouraged lately... my last cover was met pretty lukewarmly, and I wonder if all the effort was even worth it. I pour hours of love and stress into something, and four people like it. That’s how it usually goes. I feel awful feeling this way because it shits in the face of the people who DO like and support my stuff, but... I dunno. Like, what’s the point?

    Don't feel too discouraged peaches, it can just be hard for videos featuring lesser known synths/songs to take off, but your work is always so immaculate!! I understand how you feel, but I hope you feel better sooon. :kokone_lili:

    Thank you guys!! I'm sorry again for feeling this way (and, well, posting about it)... I just needed to vent I guess. Things have been so rough these past few days, then I go on YouTube and see no new notifications, same as always, and I guess it just got to me more than usual.

    I'm sorry you feel that way, peaches. It's hard to work hard to create something and then have very few people even acknowledge it. I don't really have a good way to deal with it, other than to take comfort in the friends you have, and remember the joy you took in creating the art in the first place. As long as you enjoyed creating what you made, the experience was still valuable.
    I can’t listen to ANYTHING without thinking about covering it, I swear.

    There’s this disturbing anti-ecstasy PSA that’s notorious not just for its horrifying visuals, but for the shockingly lovely song playing in the background. It’s like a country ballad from the 30s or 40s, but I’m about 95% sure the song doesn’t exist and was made exclusively for the PSA (it’s over 20 years old and no one’s been able to track it down in that time).

    I watched it again last night, and my VERY FIRST thought was “Man, if the full version existed, who would sound best? Al? Ellie, pitched up an octave?”

    It’s ingrained in my mind and I can’t stop, I swear.
    I had the honor of paying another $100 to have water shot up his ass. But! He finally pooped, and his intestines are getting back to work! The vet said his gastrointestinal lining was looking softer and less inflamed already. God, I’m so relieved. My baby might make a swell recovery after all!
    Binx (my idiot cat who swallowed some yarn) is doing better, per the vet. He's apparently been sleeping in his litter box all day. If given the choice between comfort and solitude, he'll choose the latter, so that sounds about right.

    Still, they've given him medications and have him hooked up to an IV - their suspicions were correct. No intestinal blockage from the yarn, but it made him so sick he hasn't been able to eat or drink. He'll have some more X-rays tonight to determine if the yarn's going anywhere.
    Is there a way to imitate the guttural R sound (such as in French) in Vocaloid, in any manner? The best I've been able to imitate, in any synth, is a rolling R, which works alright but lacks authenticity...
    So my idiot cat ate some yarn and now he’s sick. It’s 4AM here and I can’t get him into a vet until at least 9, but I’ve already called in and let my manager know I won’t be in.

    Please pray for him, and for me. He’s my baby. I can’t handle the thought of something bad happening to him.
    On this episode of Peaches Messes Around with Phonemes: while attempting to make Haiyi say "hand," I instead made her say "cunt".

    I don't know how I managed that, but somehow, I did.
