Preparations for the Summertime Boogie-Woogie

May 6, 2015

Summertime, let the love birds fly tonight
Summertime, can you feel it deep inside?
Summertime, come along and sing this song
Let’s celebrate a party all night long

If you’re reading this, then we’re halfway through spring. This only means one thing: summer is coming. It’s a time for relaxing and who would dare think about blogging at a time like this? (This is especially since I’m a prolific blogger as it is and I almost burned myself out at least twice last year.)

Well, there is a slight tradition here that melds my two main worlds (art and blogging) together. I tried this for the most last year with… results, but I hope for better days. (You have to be hopeful if you’re going to be an idol fan, even if being in the H!P fandom will turn you into the world’s biggest cynic.)

So here’s what’s going on:

Problem Averted

September 3, 2014

Welcome back, Magical Meteorites, and greetings to the Earthlings. Welcome to a very special installment of the Summer Refreshment series!

Why is it special you ask? I’ll tell you why: Remember that little crisis that led to a big ol’ poll to determine the future of the series?

…there are now two open slots for content: August 31st and September 1st. I’ll need your feedback to determine the future of the series. You can pick up to three choices with the top two being the ones that will decide the fates of the two dates on the blog.

Well… the results are in!

Morning Dance Shaker Song Carnaval

August 25, 2014

Welcome back, Magical Meteorites, and greetings to the Earthlings. Welcome to another installment of the Summer Refreshment series.

This post was made in light of how Manatsu no Kousen, the A-side who kickstarted this series, is noted as the only summer-themed single of Morning Musume. Quite an interesting observation, especially since there have been other summery-tunes in the MM catalog.

This actually ties in to an observation I made about Celestia’s own Summer Refreshment post, on how “Manatsu no Kousen” is evidently Morning Musume’s only summer-themed single ever. But again, one has to take this as part of a bigger picture. Would Morning Musume have been better able to shore up sales by doing summer-themed singles? Maybe, maybe not. Perhaps that has more to do with the mindset involved – being less concerned with the established fan base, looking more towards a casual audience of listeners – and how Morning Musume’s own audience seemed to dwindle down to the wota hardcore for a while? Certainly, there’s something to consider there.

While the topic of the summer song has been discussed before, I would like to examine it even more with a proverbial pair of tweezers. The only thing more fun than dissecting physical entities is dissecting ideas, abstract entities.

Which is where we are. Read the rest of this entry »

It’s a Wild, Wild Summer

August 11, 2014

Warning: There are YouTube videos here which may cause some browsers to freeze and crash.
Also, I can personally guarantee that by the time you’re done reading this entry, you’re going to be sick of something…

1! 2! 1, 2, 3, 4!

Welcome everyone to the Summer Refreshment series, where I talk turkey as I grill music.

The theme song for this post is going to be a little more obscure than usual: Wild, Wild Summer by Flipper’s Guitar.

Let’s shuffle this up a bit by talking about an old summer favorite: the Shuffle Units!

Houston, We Have a Problem…

August 8, 2014

Due to a somewhat unforeseen circumstance (one of them being the lack of a summer single for Morning Musume), the Summer Refreshment series is at risk of ending too early.

As you can see, there are now two open slots for content: August 31st and September 1st. I’ll need your feedback to determine the future of the series. You can pick up to three choices with the top two being the ones that will decide the fates of the two dates on the blog.

As for why there are three maximum choices instead of two, it’s because of how WordPress/PollDaddy works: 3 is the minimum amount of allowed multiple choices.

You can also spread the word by using the following:

Your feedback and support are greatly appreciated. The results will be announced around August 31st so mark your calendars.
