Jack is totally not using SHODAN chat. Nuh-uh.
@Rinneko Print copies? Yes. Definitely.
Never enough! Had to pass up on some nice ones, so I'll have to pile up a ton more in january/february...
I actually sadfaced really hard irl.
I asked for feedback and interest in the chorus itself
And I gave you that. Song choices are lame, no interest due to those choices. Multiple people who MAY be interested in participating in A chorus have given you feedback on why they are NOT interested in THIS chorus.
How about you reflect on why people are not interested in your shit when they go as far as to actually TELL YOU THE REASONS?
I won't organize any voice work either. That's not something I feel particularly interested in, and I don't do the skype with CL people either. And I can't be arsed to organize something I have no skill in (editing, mixing etc) nor feel up to the task.
Editing words? Sure, no problem. Giving feedback and directions? No problem. Working my way through sound files, overlaying them, denoising tracks, removing echo and balancing out shitty equipment? Hell no.
Bitch, no. I ain't gon' sing. Getting to hear DC is a rare gift to the privileged few, and that's how it is gonna stay for the foreseeable future.
But fuck you, pal. You are discussing the next chorus in this thread, asking for feedback and interest. So yeah, don't complain when the song choices are being discussed and questioned. I had to deal with CloudVariasKira bringing up nsfw shit in my writing projects and a lot of general nonsense, but it was still feedback I took into consideration where appropriate and may resurface in future projects of the type :V
I doubt I'd participate in voice work on CL. I'm just finding this trend of japanese songs really utterly boring and not entertaining to listen to.
We just talked about this on chat a few minutes ago (and probably still are), and @Teru brought up "Still Alive", the first Portal song as an option. Well known, even by non-gamers, with cult status, easy lyrics and even a bit of symbolic value, as CL itself is "Still Alive", now under new leadership, despite all odds, admins, drama, bans and general bullshit.
@johan_5179 brought up Queen's "We Are the Champions" or "We Will Rock You", as they are simple, widely recognized and FUN to sing, even with a multitude of different voices involved. Heck, I know first hand that random people on the train will jump in and start smiling when they hear a Queen song coming from your radio, phone or whatever.
The appeal of random animu openings from yesteryear is fairly limited, and it is not something to really show around to non-japfags. Widening the potential audience would be a good thing.
How about something english for starters, something people don't need fan translations for to understand most of the time? Something that actually has a wider appeal than just to non-weeaboo people on the internetz?
I mean, come on! There are A LOT of great songs that are almost universally loved or well-known, which often have various instrumental arrangements as well. You know, classic hits that are actually FUN to sing, that bring a good mood to people. Yes, let it be silly, by all means, but make it something silly because its fun, not because people's understanding and pronounciation of random japanese words doesn't hold up.
Is this another one of those silly japanese songs? Meh...
Heh, that's the dead tree pile I've picked up since the last picture end of july:
A few books are still to come this month, I guess. Would've ordered more if Hermes hadn't turned out to repeatedly fuck up the deliveries...
