I have just realized that there are people out there who haven’t yet had the pleasure of hearing the beautiful singing voice of Toyonaga Toshiyuki aka Yuuri Katsuki’s Japanese voice actor, and decided to amend this.

I was actually wondering which song sung by him to choose for this showcase since more often than not he sings in a lower voice than Yuuri’s, but then I found this - “Valentine Season” - from his recent mini album C’LR’OWN and thought that this was just the thing I was looking for.

If you want to hear more of his singing, you can find his solo album on Spotify.

Oh, and fun fact - he can play guitar, drums (he has literally ranked 7th nationally in the drummania rankings which is insane and awesome) and writes and composes songs.

In case you needed inspiration for that “singer/musician!Yuuri AU” here it is. ;D

170220 BTS Aims to Survive In 'Not Today': Watch

Last week may have been about the sentimental side of BTS with the release of “Spring Day,” but Sunday (Feb. 19) brought out the group’s more intense persona with the unveiling of the video for “Not Today.”

One of two dual singles on their You Never Walk Alone reissue of BTS’ record-breaking 2016 Wings album, “Not Today” is a propulsive synth-hip hop banger that calls for “all the underdogs in the world” to not give up and keep fighting. While the single was released last week as one of four news songs featured on You Never Walk Alone, BTS waited a week before dropping the music video for the album’s second single.

The video is a dance-heavy clip propelled by the song’s pounding rhythm, which is emphasized by the precise, stomping choreography. The video shows BTS leading a crowd of black-clad, seemingly ninja-inspired, dancers – who throw off their restricting garments at one point as if in protest– in military-style formations, while the rapidfire dances are interspersed with scenes of the BTS members being chased and shot at.

Within half a day of being released, the music video for “Not Today” was viewed over 5 million times even though the song was released a week earlier on You Never Walk Alone.

The powerful song is one of BTS’ fiercest in years and an update to the group’s early anti-establishment message (“A day may come when we lose/ But it is not today/Today we fight!”) featured in songs like “No More Dream” and “N.O.” Along with the lyrics promoting people bonding together to form a new world, which comes at a time when South Korea’s population is rallying against government corruption, “Not Today” also references the idea of breaking the glass ceiling and all invisible barriers that keep people back from succeeding. Alternatively, the positive, forceful lyrics in “Not Today” (“not today/Not yet a day to die”) could also be the more energetic counterpart to the mellow tone of “Spring Day” and its anti-suicide music video.

And, lyrics aside, the aggressive “Not Today” is exactly the time of pump-up anthem to become a mainstay at BTS’ concerts for years to come.

The “Spring Day” and “Not Today” pairing follows a string of two-part single releases from BTS: Their The Most Beautiful Moment in Life, Part 1 album in 2015 featured the passionate “I Need You” released alongside with the swaggering “Dope,” while 2016’s The Most Beautiful Moment in Life: Young Forever paired the bombastic “Fire” with the desperation of “Save Me.”  

BTS’ artistic approach to socially-aware K-pop led the group to breaking all prior Billboard records set by all Korean acts aside from PSY. Last year saw BTS become the highest-ranking and best-selling K-pop group to appear on the Billboard 200 with Wings, which also is notable for being the first Korean album to stay on the World Albums chart for 18 weeks. The group’s popularity has made them fan favorites both locally and internationally, especially in the U.S. BTS headlined both KCON LA and KCON NY last summer, and will hold their first U.S. stadium tour next month, with five nights of concerts held in three cities.

I will never forget that one time I peeked into the vocaloid fandom and found out that apparently auto tuned vocaloid songs were strongly frowned upon which I still think is hilariously ironic.

“Mimesis” 2012 – 2014 (Mimesis is a Greek word meaning imitation)
 


Mimesis is an adaptive imitation strategy.
There is a major difference between mimesis and camouflage in terms of evolution: camouflage capability, involving colour in particular, can appear and develop very quickly in a species through the interplay of mutations and selection, but mimesis by contrast is a complex co-evolutionary mechanism involving three species: the model, the imitator and the dupe.

ngl tho working on this pv is legit giving me major ghostie-vibes like

particularly because back in the Day, around the time face less and serial contraption of malice were uploaded, i was working on a yohioloid song that was also gonna have a multi-picture pv, and the character from that one looked and was drawn really similar to the one in this pv im working on right now

i was using the same pencil-lookin brush, the character was in b&w while the background was themed in black + one main color, and the characters have the EXACT same hair style. that old pv from 2014 also had the same art style as dance with the dead (the rhombus-shaped eyes, blush circles, generally kinda blockier than my normal style), which is really similar to what im doing with this song

and theyre both sung by yohioloid

and im just over here like hello 2014 how are you today

Music Chart Changes To Start Affecting Midnight Releases Next Week

Recently, new changes were announced for Korean music charts, which prevent songs released outside the window of 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. KST from entering charts until the following afternoon at 1 p.m. With this change, music sites are discouraging the release of music at midnight.

According to reports, the major Korean music sites — Melon, KT Music, CJ E&M, Bugs, Soribada, etc. — will be implementing this change at midnight on February 27.

Following this change, the industry is expecting many artists to change the time that they release music. This is a major goal for the change, to avoid the midnight hours — when the competition is mostly among fandoms — and promote releases during the day, ideally evening out the competition between the general public and fandoms.

Previously, following the initial announcement of the change, netizens raised protest, saying that the changes aren’t fair and is discriminatory toward idol fans.

On this day in music history: February 21, 1966 - “Nowhere Man” by The Beatles is released. Written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney, it is recorded October 21 - 22, 1965 in Studio Two at Abbey Road Studios in London. Written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney, it is the twenty fourth US single for the legendary rock band from Liverpool, UK. Composed primarily by John Lennon, he comes up with the song after spending five hours trying to write something without success. Finally, the words and melody come to him all at once. Lennon shows what he’s come up with to McCartney, who helps him complete the song. “Nowhere Man” represents another departure for The Beatles, with Lennon and McCartney writing more introspective material, moving away from the subject matter of their earlier work which focused more on love and romance. Another one of the songs’ crowning touches is the dual guitar solo played by George Harrison and John Lennon on a pair of matching ‘61 sonic blue Fender Stratocasters, purchased for them by their roadie Mal Evans from Grimwoods Music in Whitstable, Kent. When the song is mixed, Lennon and Harrison asks producer George Martin and engineer Norman Smith, double the amount of treble on the guitars to create an even brighter and cutting sound that is instantly apparent on the finished recording. Originally a track on the UK version of “Rubber Soul, the song is left off of the US version of the album and is instead released as a stand alone single backed with the country flavored "What Goes On” (#81 Pop) sung by Ringo Starr, also extracted from the UK version of “Rubber Soul”. “Nowhere Man” peaks at #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 on March 26, 1966. Both songs make their US album debut on the compilation “Yesterday And Today” in June of 1966. “Nowhere Man” is certified Gold in the US by the RIAA.

     [ Alola cousins! So I really quickly wanted to ask if the mun were to do art streams from time to time would you guys be interested? I don’t post a lot of art here but I’m looking to once I get to the point where I can actually finish drawings, ha ha! I probably wouldn’t be able to take requests in the streams but who knows! So lemme know if that would be something that would interest you. Picarto would be the platform of choice, but I know twitch offers mobile viewing~ I’ve seen some others in the community do art streams and I wanted to give it a try c: ] 

Anyway nothing fucks me up more than the fact that in the “Goodbye” scene as the trailer was pulling away and Doc was left alone to watch the town once again go dark, the song “Goodbye” that was playing morphed into an instrumental of “Our Town,” specifically the part of the song in which the lyrics are “no one seems to need us, like they did before.”

Indonesian hackers hacked their website and played twice knock knock -.- If you go on twitter, you will find videos of it and how it looks like. I don't believe they did anything else tho, I hope

I sense another fan war… *deep sigh*

I hate when fandoms fight, it’s always so petty and pointless?

Like, I’m not really a huge Twice fan or anything, but I respect them, I actually like some of their songs. I don’t want to see fan wars between ONCEs and ARMYs :/

It also makes me think, do people really have nothing better to do with their time, than literally hack into a website, which probably took some effort, and play a song from another k-pop group? What is the actual point?

Granted, it might be people trying to stir shit between the fandoms, I can’t say for sure :/
