  • So Love Live SIF is shutting down at the end of March. :/ (Honestly though, I’m having a blast playing it again)
    I knew it was coming, but the roll out feels rushed. I get the feeling that Klab knew it was coming soon and prepared some stuff for it, but Bushiroad suddenly announced that it was the end. Hopefully the SIF2 livestream on the 9th will provide more details on what will transfer over.

    I'm still devastated over the news, especially because all the stuff that would carry over to SIF2 won't carry over for me just because they don't want to comply with EU laws... now I'm trying to figure out how to save my stuff. So much trouble just because they're rushing 😭 I don't want my decade old account to vanish into nothing...

    They are blocking anyone who has ever used an EU IP address to access the game, even via VPNs or while someone is on vacation. It is insane. I just ran into a post on reddit and some people are trying mass emailing bushiroad to get them to change.

    yeah.. I'm in a Love Live discord and a group is trying to figure out if there is ANY way to get around this. I hope they find a way or klab hears us.. sigh
    So um is no one going to talk about what 1st place is doing with IA on tiktok??? Like how did she agree to do those videos? Someone talk to her agent. TikTok
    My mom’s been rewatching Nashville and I totally forgot how good the music is. Like actually listenable country music.

    Why are people still getting on Gwen Stefani about cultural appropriation?? I don’t get it. It’s clear that she is a fan of Japanese culture(especially Harajuku culture), but I don’t see how that’s any different from so many people I’ve met online that are regarded as totally okay. Edit: It turns out that people in Japan actually don’t care about this as much as westerners do.

    With the caveat that this kind of outrage on the part of groups like asian americans can be justified, in this specific instance the anger seems to be coming from the decontextualization of what she said. Headlines, baiting for outrage, quoted her solely as saying "my god, I'm Japanese!" but the full quote reveals that she wasn't trying to imply that she literally felt like she was Japanese or that she wanted to become Japanese a la weeaboo stereotype of old, but that she thought her contact with Japanese culture in early life influenced her feeling comfortable when she first visited Japan. I barely know who Gwen Stefani is so I have nothing in this for or against her. The way she said it was unfortunate, but if it hadn't be snipped out of the larger quotation, I doubt people would be acting like this.

    The people that lash out and get angry, and the people that lash out at those who originally got angry... all of them feed engagement and page views, and make the big guy money. Algorithmically served content and Google AdSense has literally weaponized our human disposition against us.

    Thank you. That was really well said.
    Am I remembering incorrectly or was there a point in time when the vocals community was obsessed with Shiningray? edit: meant vocal synth not vocals

    It's true, I have several Shiningray utaite covers on my iPod to prove it
    This used the Cryptonloids’ vocaloid banks right?
    Stardust’s Vocaloid vb discontinuation made me think about IA and how 1st Place has shifted to promoting her Cevio AI vbs. I really hope they don’t decide to discontinue her Vocaloid vb at some point.
    I really want to draw, but my brain and hands say no. Too much overload and joint pain from long covid. I’m having a hard time. :/
    I’ll be so glad when January is over and I don’t have to be subjected to Christmas movies anymore.
    Once we’re moved I will need my own tv. There is so much I’ve wanted to watch over the years that I haven’t been able to because we only have one tv and my mom watched tv all the time while she works on the computer. I was watching The Umbrella Academy recently and she was literally like “You can’t watch this in my presence” because she she saw all of 10 min of it and decided it was too chaotic or something. She even started jabbing at it and asked me to defend it. But here I am forced to watch really awful Christmas movies. I’ve just reached the end of what I can tolerate I think.
    I’m hoping that the discontinuation of Galaco Talk means that Yamaha will be rolling out some sort of vocaloid talk or something.
    Anyone want a level 37-40 Vaporeon? I have around 20 of them rn from shiny hunting a mass outbreak.(didn’t get a shiny one though)
