    Scenario Thing- Luka's English Class

    Luka: Okay, let's just move on. Time to practice our rhotic vowels. Open your books and we're going to take turns reading a short story aloud. (Turning to the story page the students get nervous.) The Story of a Lord's Elevator by Nokone There once was a lord who lived in a spire. For...

    Scenario Thing- Luka's English Class

    Luka: You have all made good progress. For a change of pace let's try an advanced exercise as a little challenge. (The class breaks out in a nervous sweat.) Luka: For the first exercise we'll practice pronouncing "L." Let's try saying this phrase. (Luka writes on the whiteboard.) Luka: Repeat...

    Dictionary Use and Thoughts on Phonemes

    Actually, I recently bought Miku V3! There are few things I want to try with her. One idea is that I can run two vocal tracks and if Miku V4 is struggling with a word or phrase I can see if Miku V3 works better. I've tried this using her Japanese voicebank, Miku V4 (Original), and it has...

    Ah! Sorry. I didn't mean it like that (I was referring to having fun during the activity of writing alternating paragraphs with a friend, not writing in general). I encourage you to have fun, but if you're not feeling it, then you're not feeling it. That applies to inspiration too. If you...

    You need to loosen up and have practical goals and expectations. Don't sit down and try to write "something good" or to "make a bunch of progress" on what you're working on. You going to sit down to write. Just write something, anything. That's the bar for success: just to write. You, like...

    Lyric Writing with Nokone

    [Warning: Dry Philosophical Analysis] It's often a struggle to decide whether to simplify a lyrical passage. I tend to just write lyrics as key ideas of much longer chains of thought. I don't know if it makes some of the lines I write seem over-complicated. At the same time, I don't want to...

    "Perfection is finally attained not when there is no longer anything to add, but when there is no longer anything to take away." -- Antoine de Saint Exupéry Things you can do when you have trouble writing something succinctly: Write it anew from memory on a blank piece of paper (or open a...

    Lyric Writing with Nokone

    "Time To Grieve" part 2 I've been singing to myself all day long. I think I have the chorus down. I won't expand on the verses until I have a better idea of what their melody will be. Some kind of dramatic rock number in the vein of yuyoyuppe or neru. I really want to express the pleading...

    I had a strange experience. I wasn't doing anything in particular when these words came to me. I basically wrote a whole song in one sitting. I put it in my lyrics thread, but I got a feeling like I should post the chorus here. Like maybe someone out there needs to hear it? (I dunno, I...

    Lyric Writing with Nokone

    "Time To Grieve" part 1 (placeholder image) This is an original composition. It was so odd. I wasn't doing anything in particular when these words just came to me. I practically wrote all of this in one go. I have an idea of what melody goes with it, but it will be quite a while before I'll...

    I feel true "metalheads" are all about the music. If they're pretentious they're more like "metal hipsters."

    "WAVE" part 2 This is what I've come up with so far. I really like what I came up with for the chorus. I'll likely make changes to the verses. With one mistake, all time and space is done and gone, the end, finito flying by a go/no-go, my lights are all green a heart-to-heart connection...

    The character design and personality are a huge influence on me. Even without a canon personality they still give off a certain attitude by their art and via community creations. For me, it's not about making a synth vocal track for a song. It's about having that particular character sing a...

    What do you mean by that? Feeling "cringy" when you look up the English lyrics. I'm genuinely curious.

    Lyric Writing with Nokone

    "Wave" part 1 I love the music niki makes. Some of the best songs using Lily's voice! But either I'm missing something, or their lyrics seem to contain a lot of non-sequitur phrases? I believe they're more focused on lyrics that sound good when sung, rather that lyrics that convey specific...
