Embarrassing Things You've Done In The Fandom

I don't think I've *done* too many embarrassing things actually, but, trying to bring up vocaloid music to anybody at all usually gets me some strange looks and mixed reactions. It's usually something I have to enjoy alone.

So far I haven't managed to embarrass myself yet, either...I think? :) But that's basically my approach to playing Vocaloid music, too. Mostly I play it alone or over headphones. Though if I do play it in front of other people, it's people who know I like Japanese music. But they don't even know Vocaloid exists yet, I don't think, and they don't listen to Japanese music themselves (They have a higher preference for listening to music in a language they understand.). So it's possible they think most Japanese singers sound like Vocaloids.

yeah I feel like it's something that society wants me to think is not acceptable lol
That'll probably change, though. What society is cool with has a way of broadening over time. I mean, look at all the foreign restaurants we enjoy now that probably might've been seen as weird to go to a number of years ago. There's even a "cool" factor to it, too--going to someplace like that seems to be seen as demonstrating worldliness in certain circles. At least that's what I've observed in the US.

I once had to show some work related photos on my phone to a workmate. Guess did she accidentally see some of the lewd Miku pics I had on my phone too...

I feel the same.

I only had this experience when I was in the early state of being a Vocaloid/Miku fan. I never felt embarassed to talk about it - well, I just lack a feeling of embarassment in general, I guess. It was more like I already expected people to react negatively, so I just never mentioned it.
But nowadays I left all those people behind me since I didn't feel comfortable around them. All the people I keep in touch with are, at least casually, interested in Vocaloid music or are my classmates/colleagues.
My last good presentation was about the history of Hatsune Miku - in front of a class where 90% presented some rappers. And guess what, I knew what my audience was into, so I made a focus on facts that mainstream people like, e.g. Miku's collab. with Lady Gaga, the Just Dance games, mentioned Big Boi and that one rapper who attended Miku Expo LA, showed them my DAW along with Miku V4X and played a hardcore OkameP song since I didn't buy any Miku raps yet. And that's how I earned applause, made the best presentation in class and even converted someone into a Miku fan.
Honestly, I even mentioned Vocaloid when my employer asked me how I decided to learn Japanese. I didn't say "OMG, I'm the biggest Miku fanboy in the world! Miku best waifu!", I was more like "Well, Vocaloid is software for musicians. You choose a voice you like, input your lyrics and make it sing for you". That's your save bet if you want to make someone who is not into anime like Vocaloid.
I believe that you can make almost every person like Vocaloid as long as you pay attention to things they already like. Well, as long as they are not dumbasses that don't get a single thing you say.


Oh, I just remembered that I accidentally showed my arts class my collection of bikini Miku images during another presentation. Now the girls know what "it's difficult" really means.^^'
