So, a year later. “I’m ALIVE!” December 23, 2010

It has been a few days over a year since my last blog post. I gotta say, I am very disappointed with myself.

I doubt very many of you even come here anymore, let alone expect anything interesting to happen, but I promise I’m going to start making regular blog entries again, if only to prove that I still exist! (Because I totally do).

I’m sure many of you, like myself, are enjoying a well deserved winter break. I’m celebrating by stuffing as many covers as I can into a two week period. It’s proving to be moderately successful. Earlier today, I finished a demo for my cover of the BECCA song, “I’m Alive!” I’m sure a lot of you know it. It’s from the great anime, Kuroshitsuji (or Black Butler).

It’s interesting because I just posted a cover of another ending theme from the very same anime right [here].

I guess they just have plain old awesome songs. >w<

So, in hopes that you’ll forgive me, [here’s] the new cover demo!

If you like it, tell me and I’ll think about posting it on my main channel! Thanks!

Hi, guys! A lot has happened since the last time I wrote a post (Sorry about that, btw). I’m actually also sorry about not having posted my last few fandubs. (The last ten or so, actually)

If you read my descriptions on videos, you might know that I’m really busy with school. And I’m also in a bit of a musical rut. Haha. Not much to do about that, I guess. But, hey! Winter break is on the way, so, I’ll have a lot of free time. Some of it, I’ll probably put into my music, I think. Yay!

Currently obsessed with: “Manazashi” – anNina / “Mugen” – Nana Mizuki

I must say, when I first found out I hadn’t made the finals of Gendou Idol, I was a little sad, but hey! I did make the Semifinals! And that’s a really big honor! So, I’ll try again next year and maybe get a little further and be an even better singer. Here’s to hoping! ^ ^

Without further ado, I muuuust thank everyone for helping me FINALLY reach 1K subscribers! I can hardly believe it! It’s like a dream and I can only go up from here. I hope I’m around for a lot longer, making new music, and entertaining people. That’s really one of my favorite things. Hopefully, everyone keeps telling me how I can improve and how I can keep them interested.

I’ll be posting a new blog post and updating my downloads within the next few days! Bye, my little monsters.

Mostly unknown… June 26, 2009

Hello, woooorld. How’s everyone been doing lately? Well, I’m just fine albeit not being able to sleep at a little after 5:30 am. I just spent the last ten or so minutes looking through HIMEKA’s new official blog and I’m so incredibly proud of her. I don’t know her personally, but I’ve been following her from far behind for a while, so I’m a big fan. (Hm. Did that seem stalker-ish to say?) 

She had dreams and she did all she could to make them a reality. Still, with a voice like that I can’t imagine it was nearly as difficult as it could’ve been. To be a foreigner making her way into the Japanese music industry is a great feat and I commend her for it. I wish her so much luck in the future and I can’t wait for a full album (you know it’s coming). 

:\ But looking through her blog made me think. Don’t get me wrong, I can’t thank the people who listen to me enough for… well… listening to me and I’m not complaining because I know a lot of people don’t get this far, but I’m mostly unknown to the world. Outside of a few hundred listeners on youtube, no one knows who I am. Again, I’m not complaining. It’s just something to think about. 

I guess I’m getting into another rut.

By the way, R.I.P. Michael Jackson and Farrah Fawcett. That was such sad news. I’ve always admired Michael’s music and… Farrah’s hair. It’s a total loss to the world. I’m thinking of doing a commemorative song to MJ as a collaboration with Cookieluv123456789. 

There was also some drama earlier about a couple of my friend’s fan vocaloids being removed from a Vocaloid Wiki site run by some harpy. Granted, mine was removed, too, I’m not as angry as they were. 

That’s about it for now. I have some songs I need to post. And I actually think I have enough to span out for the rest of the summer. Leave me comments about whatever and in the words of Lillylivers, I’ll catch you on the other side.

“I need a vacation!!” 

And I’ve got one! Hi, guys! Summer has arrived and I’m feeling all kinds of awesome! Thanks for all your concerns about my recent sickness and I think I’m doing a lot better! Recently I released a “demo” for my own personal Vocaloid, hAck.er. I love him and the one whom created his design, Snekoko. She is AMAZINGLY amazing and I want her babies. -bounces up and down- I’m somewhat hyper. Summer gets me that way. I’ll be posting more updates.

[SEMI-Important] Being sick SUCKS! May 12, 2009

Hi, everyone. 

Well, I’m sick. Pretty sick (in that it has heavily affected my voice). I COMPLETELY lost my voice a few days ago, but my speaking voice is mostly back with my vocal range DRASTICALLY cut. I can’t sing, and I can’t even entertain my friends with various odd high pitched noises. It also hurts to swallow. 

So, it goes without saying that I won’t be singing for a while. Whether I’d been sick or not I was still going to be taking a bit of a hiatus as I can’t seem to pump out a really decent cover as of late. So, this is probably for the best! Thanks for your understanding! 

Don’t think I’m quitting or anything. I just need a break to both recover and regroup. If I try to sing in my current state I might permanently ruin my voice and I’d rather not have that happen. -goes into coughing fits- Yeah, that happens, too. I’m going to log onto Skype because I feel like I haven’t been on in weeks. Or maybe MSN. Whatever, I just need to talk to some people. My real life friends are boring as of late. I’ve been busy with schoolwork and… having a life? Whatever.

 

:\ I need booze.

 :\ Hey, guys. Sorry I’ve not gotten back to my sudden in-pour of youtube commenting and PM’s. Sorreh! Just some random (and unprovoked) troubles flew in my window and my parents -being the GREAT people they are- decided to… well… not be parents. Eh. Whatever. Old people are old people. The rest home calls. SO, did anyone else get this letter from this site, Weka-something? About a Japanese contest? Music? Something? It looks like epic spam, but all the other recipients that I saw were like… REALLY up there in the talent. So I’m like… o.O.

It’s probably going by descending subscriber count… seeing as I can find a thousand more people on the Japanese server with much more talent (Not a put down. A fact.)

Well, computer’s douching up and it’s bedtime. Night, babehs. See you this weekend, most of you.

OH. AND HAPPY BIRTHDAY, LILLYLIVERS. 😀 I LOVE YA, HUN!

Okay! Hi again, guys! Not much has changed since my last post (wut.)

I am working on a new cover, though. 666 subscribers and all. Heh. I’m a strange person. Anyway, lovelies… I’m obsessed with a new song! I’m sure at least some of you have heard of the series “Cutey Honey.”  It’s not suitable for younger audiences, though. I swear, every five seconds it’s tits and ass, not to mention the onslaught of “Fuck you, Cutie Honey!” or “You bitch! Don’t get cocky!” and then, of course… more tits and ass. The original series came out in the seventies, but there is a more recent (and less racy than New Cutie Honey) remake by Gainax, the studio who gave us “Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann” and “This Ugly Yet Beautiful World” called “Re: Cutie Honey.” 

Well, besides all that… every remake of “Cutie Honey” features an opening theme by the same name. I promise you… EVERY remake of the song is gold. My favorite, however is the newest by Koda Kumi. She is great. I loved her “1000 no Kotoba.”  It’s got a dancier beat and a newer style that makes you want to get up and… shake something?

Check it out for yourself! Download here!

明日へのキズナ (Asu he no Kizuna) [~Ashestoashesjc~] feat. Desho April 10, 2009

=D Hi, everyone! Well, remember when I mentioned that debut song from HIMEKA (because it was only like…. ONE post ago)?

Well… because I’m totally neurotic and obsessive… I covered it. A total crack cover because I could never display the same sort of emotion. XD;

I love this song and I love you guys so I thought I’d post it here. I’m probably not going to post it on youtube because I’m deathly afraid of suspension.

I got a friend of mine, ohmydesho (ohmygaa) to do harmonies, hence the “feat. Desho” so big thanks to him. Plus, an even BIGGER thanks to djbouche for giving me permission to use his great MIDI instrumental as backup instrumentation. And the biggest thanks to HIMEKA for making such a GREAT and catchy song!

(I wouldn’t click if I wanted to live) Here is the link to my cover of HIMEKA’s “Asu he no Kizuna” – click here

Guys, please give me your feedback! I really want to improve!

Getting the hang of it ^^ April 7, 2009

I’ve had this account for a whole day and so far all I’ve done is pick a layout and make a header (which I think is kind of cute if I may say so).

It’s pretty empty as of now, but then again, I haven’t really broadcasted it over my youtube so no one really knows that this exists yet. I’m on Spring Break currently, my allergies have kinda subsided, I just finished a new cover, and so far things are going PRETTY well. 

As I’m sure a lot of you know, HIMEKA’s debut single was released recently (a sample, at least) and let me tell you… it is AMAZING. It’s entitled “”明日へのキズナ (Asu he no Kizuna)” and I’m totally thinking of doing a big group cover of it if I can find anyone that’s interested :/ 

A link to the sample can be found here as well as a link to Fictionjunction’s blog page.

;D Thanks.

こんにちは、皆さん! (Hello, everyone!) April 7, 2009

Hi there, people. Well, I finally got around to making a blog, yeah? I figure this way I can gather everything to one place and maybe if you actually feel interested in getting to know me… well… here’s a way to do it, right? 

Okay, so, to be honest… I have no idea what I’m doing, but what I plan on doing is posting new songs here (probably before a post them onto youtube), along with having an area where you guys can post  requests for songs you’d like for me to do because it’s so much easier than having you put them in comments and me never remembering where they are

I also want to thank you guys SO much for 650 subscribers! Wow! That really means a lot to me that you guys like my voice at ALL much less want to hear MORE of it! So, anyway, thanks for reading and paying attention to me for a while year. So… let’s see what this new era of Ashe brings, shall we? (Let’s not.)
