Because I want to post something but have no idea what to post. But for anyone that wants to know; my presentation yesterday went bad, as expected, but maybe I'm just blowing things out of proportion a bit. I had lots of information that I pretty much just skimmed over, I threw the unfinished Powerpoint on my flash drive without realizing. I forgot I made one that just had images before later making one that had text along with it as well. I did okay explaining things even if I forgot to mention a lot of the stuff I wanted to. I forgot what I was going to say for my conclusion so ended up stammering on in circles trying to recall it (because I don't like looking down at my flash cards even though that's the purpose of them, too nervous to do so). At the end my professor told me I still had 20 seconds left and I thought for a second and muttered "I don't have anything else" despite knowing I had uncovered ground. She just smiled and said it was fine and clapped to mark the end of my turn. I know she doesn't mind but an ending like that is just awkward.
Anyway, here are some songs. First up is a cover that Mari sent to me earlier today, I thought it was pretty nice. I usually don't like male vocals for Vocaloid songs, but I thought he did a good job with it. Here's Miichan's cover of Clock Lock Works. If you've never heard the song before and like it, you can of course find many different covers (and the original) easily.
While we're doing Vocaloid covers, here's a nice re-arrange of Matryoshka, done with Pokemon Black/White related lyrics and with a nice Pokemon PV.
This is Kira Kira from Kishidan. It has a very...interesting video.
This next one is the opening from Sora no Woto. But I've never seen the anime actually. I just like Kalafina's songs. Though maybe I should try picking it up some time, I've never even really looked into the anime. Anyway, here's Hikari no Senritsu (Melody of Light) from Kalafina. small video since it's just a slideshow.
And finally I think I'll just throw this in because on my last music post Cpt.Awesome mentioned that he likes more lively Jazz. So I thought I'd throw this in here. This is from the jazz album Tokyo Active NEETs released C78, it's filled with lots of lively jazz arranges. Here's their take on Septette for the Dead Princess, 紅ノ館と紅ノ霧 (Beni no kan to beni no kiri) which can be translated to The Crimson Mansion and Crimson Fog.
I actually had a difficult time picking which arrange I wanted to use from their album. If you like it, they do have a sample of the album up. It starts off with the song I put here, but it transitions into short clips from the others on their album as well.
Alright, back to my Japanese now.
