Weekend Update

Taniyama Suzumura Terashima Toriumi Miyano Suwabe Shimono
All of the jumps and not-so-jumps are fantastic in their own way XD

Currently jamming to my Utapri music playlist because Utapri music <3
while ironing all of my shirts from the last time I did laundry and from yesterday.
And for the first time in a while, all of the shirts are actually ironed.

I cleaned part of the house yesterday (bathroom, living room, part of the kitchen) 'cause the roommate has someone coming over next Saturday and we'll be busy with high school Solo and Ensemble festival. The roommate was gone this weekend because it was his best friend from high school's annual ski trip with 20 other people.

I also decided to sit down with the cello that I've had in the house over a year (I borrowed it from the high school) and take a look at it and see what I could fix, and what I probably should leave to the music store ahaha. The A and D strings sound nice still... I replaced the G string and it sounded better (yes, the first string I've ever replaced). The C string needs replacing too (it does not hold pitch like at all). Then I put in a new bridge that I found in the case (yes, being adventurous here... this bridge is quite a bit taller than the older one that was on it) to see if it would help with the sound, and I think it did. Except now I need to file down some of the grooves because I can't play on the D string without hitting the G string and vice versa. At the very least, I plucked out Twinkle Twinkle Little Star XD

Last thing to do tonight: Clean the computer desktop. Too many things from tumblr again!
And maybe get started on another photoshop project.

Also: http://www.b-g.jp/
I've been following Baba of course, and I saw a few pictures of him wearing athletic wear from the musical. This makes me happy. Plus Masa and Onoda Ryunosuke.
I sure hope this thing becomes a DVD!

Edit (from tumblr):

Just lol. Like really lol. Words can't even explain the lol with the wtf? moment I had when I saw that.

W-Why were they jumping? Do I want to know?

YES CELLO! <3 Do you remember what the string brands were? You replaced the bridge? How does the soundpost look? ...before you file down anything, can you upload a photo of the D+G string?

Looks like the encore version of Maji Love 1000% from the first stage event. I don't quite remember exactly when this happens... I've seen the second stage more recently and a few more times than the first. Some of them are doing the anti-jump lololol

The string brands are crapptacular... the Red Label (that's what my violin/viola methods professor calls it... unless that is what they're actually called?) kind that I found in another cello case. I'm sure that the last time this cello was used was when TR had an orchestra program, which ended like three or four years ago. The bridge that was on the cello had tape in two areas and I found a Selmer Self-Adjusting one in another pocket. Like I mentioned, it's quite taller than the other one and the slope? isn't as slope-y as the other. I might change it back when I replace the C, but yeah, I can send you a few pictures this weekend when I get some time.

... I'll have to get back to you on the soundpost. I know it's there lol.

The orchestra director/professor of cello stopped by the office today needing copies. I mentioned to him I was picking up cello and he said I should get in touch with his grad assistant to get everything fine tuned and started. He also gave me two Spirocore C strings and said even though they're old, they'll still sound a lot better than what I have. He said if I end up needing to replace other strings, he'll help me out since he has string laying around he doesn't use :D !

I...I didn't even realise there was a a Utapri live. And now I'm watching then do Maji Love 1000% and ughhh so perfect. Even if part of me wants the seiyuu in their character's clothes? :P
Feb. 6th, 2014 04:35 pm (UTC)
Ahhhhh Utapri watcher! :D !!!!!!!! Like only one of my frends have watched it so I usually talk about the music non-stop to myself lol. And Suwabe, Taniyama, and Suzumura are my favorite seiyuu (and Maeno is a new favorite!) And Mamo and Shimono are just plain hilarious on stage. Character-wise, I like Ren the best. And Ryuuya-sensei XD. What about you?

I'm glad you were able to find a link to watch it!
Suwabe is probably the closest to dressing like his character. Or at least, his hair is long enough...

There is a second stage too... and they had a third one, but the DVD is not out yet.
Plus there are the Quiz-sama specials on the DVDs for both seasons and the sheer hilarity of almost all of them is totally worth watching. Have you seen/heard of them?

Favourites are so hard to pick! I'd probably say it goes Tokiya, Syo, Shinomiya. But I like all of them and the Tokiya bias really just comes from a bias towards Mamoru's voice.

I've got the second stage as well now but it looks like I have to go looking again for the Quiz-sama specials. ^_^

I know... so many favorites sometimes! Cool, cool - so between the two of us, we pretty have everyone covered 'cause I do like Masato too. Just not Ittoki and definitely not Cecil

Oh! And from Quartet Night, it's got to be Camus for me. He is just way too fabulous ahahahaha. Atobe would even think it's too much XD

Mamo's voice is a winner for sure.

If you haven't found them already...

Season 1
Season 2

Enjoy! Enjoy! :)

Well I like Ittoki in a way because he's totally one of my friend's favourite, and Cecil was a cat for a bit and cats are cool...

I don't really have a Quartet Night favourite (possibly Ai?), but now I really want to see a fabulous showdown between Atobe and Camus. XD
