Yet another new update? No way!! I bet you can guess what I’ve been doing to fend off end-of-year burnout…

Actually, I learned this dance awhile ago, and have just been waiting for when I had time to do a recording of it. Yes, that’s right, a dance!! I’ve been learning Jpop dances for awhile now, but haven’t been sufficiently satisfied or been too busy to post them here. But this one I’m proud of, since I feel like I got both the dancing and the singing down fairly well ^_^ And also… ARASHI! *flail* And I absolutely love this song (although there’s few Arashi songs that I don’t love XD).

Yezz… BROWNIEPOINTS if you can figure out who my bias is 😀 Hint… it’s pretty obvious if you’ve seen any of their performances of this song…

Anyways… I conclude from this endeavor that boyband dances are more challenging and interesting to learn than girl group ones. I suspect it’s due to difference in footwear >_>;; In any case, I’ll definitely be learning more Arashi dances (and maybe the rest of JE… this is contagious v_v). In fact, I’ve got the moves to Monster learned, just need to polish it up some more ^o^

Another anime song!!! I wanted to cover this song maybe like, a year and a half ago, but at that point I was sure I could not actually pull off the style of this song. I still don’t feel fully confident, but I definitely haven figured out better how to control my singing now, so I decided to go ahead and sing it ^_^

Alas it’s not perfect, and apparently the instrumental balance comes out VEEEERY different depending on the particular set of speakers/headphones, but what can you do…

I’m sort of now searching around for songs (new or old) that I can re-record and make nice, because I’m very tempted to audition for Supercell. However… the fact that I have to write a mini-essay in Japanese, and my lack of confidence, and the overall impracticle-ness might deter me. We’ll see XD I spent more time than usual on this song because I’m considering using it as one of my demos, since I have very few polished recordings from more recent and I’d like to show off my more improved singing rather than my previous weaker voice XD
