夜もすがら君想ふ (Dance Cover) Trivia

October 15, 2017

– I filmed this on September 22nd.

– This was the first dance that I filmed after getting my braces off (though it wasn’t the first one I uploaded; that would be “Morning Misoshiru”).

– As seems to be the case with a lot of Nico Nico dances, this one didn’t take me too long to learn. o_O

– I had no idea what to wear for this, so I found a random top that I had never worn and some socks that had one color that matched the top, and then I just built the rest of the outfit around that.

– My lips would dry out and stick to my retainers like crazy when I tried to lipsync, which is partially why I didn’t bother lipsyncing the second verse. XD (^__^”)

– My favorite move is probably the heel tapping after turning around (around 1:05). I think my mom liked the sort of running in place move near the beginning of the chorus. =D

– I had my nails painted for this dance, too. I believe they were dark green, but they might have been dark blue.

– I added the little snap-point before the clapping near the end of the dance~. I also changed the end move slightly because I wanted it to go with the music a little more.

I think that’s it for this one~. Thanks for watching and reading~.

Happy Birthday, Mom~!! ♥

カラダだけが大人になったんじゃない (Dance Cover) Trivia

October 9, 2017

– I wanted to make sure to get this done in time for Juice=Juice Day (10/10)~. ^__^

– I had this dance learned not too long after it came out, but various things distracted me from filming the dance: health issues (it was around the time my entire family came down with the flu), other dances, and not having the song. I could have gotten this song on iTunes, but “Next is you!” was not available, so I figured I had to buy the physical copy anyway, but I wasn’t working at that time, so I was waiting until I sold more on Etsy or got more Patreons (and we all know how that turned out). orz

– I am so… SOOOOO tired of all of the white or silver or white and silver outfits H!P has been using for singles in the past few years. (-_-*) I was debating on whether or not I should depart from their outfits completely for this one, because there are only so many things I can do (not to mention it doesn’t show up very well with the light background). =/

– The one thing I struggled with the most in this dance (at first) was getting my left arm extended down at the same angle as my right arm during the opening/transition moves. XD orz I would always have my left arm closer to my side even though it totally felt like it was at the same angle as my right arm! XD

– The red lipstick and red gloves are references to the lipstick and boxing gloves in their music video (and the lyrics mention red lipstick, too).

– I haven’t worn lipstick for a dance since last year’s “Every Day Halloween” (and I don’t know if I ever wore any for a dance before that!). I like how bright the color is, because it show’s up well on the camera, but that specific kind transfers too easily. orz

– I’m wearing silver nail polish, so I do have the white and silver to match the original outfits. XD

– I had just had surgery to have a dental implant post put in four days before I filmed this, so my mouth was still a little sore. I had to pile on concealer because I still had the greenish-yellow bruising on my face as my mouth healed. o_o

– I had washed my hair shortly before I filmed this, and I prefer to let my hair air dry, so it was in that weird still-a-little-damp-but-dry-enough-to-look-frizzy-and-stick-to-everything phase. XD orz I had to use a couple of dark purple hair clips to keep it away from my face because it kept sticking to my lipstick. XD

– Even though I had a dance shot to watch, I had to watch various live performances to check on the upward punch at the end of the dance break. Karin had made a small mistake in the dance shot by not punching up with her right fist, so I corrected that for my cover.

– I love the arm swings during the chorus, but I had to be careful because that’s my unstable shoulder.

– I did change the tilting arm movement during the opening/transition moves because they have an extra little tilt in there, but I thought it goes better with the music without that. (^__^”)

– It’s been, what, over fifteen months since my last Juice=Juice dance cover?! O_O

That’s all~! Hooray! It’s finally done~~~! =D Thanks for watching and reading!

Surimuchan [Now] #23 – September 2017

September 30, 2017

– I started watching Heartland on Netflix. It’s pretty good! I will also admit to watching LEGO Elves on Netflix. … It’s not quite as good. XD It kind of reminds me of Totally Spies (which I liked to watch way back in the day).
– I got ten books from Thrift Books and have read four (and a half) of them. I’m really getting back into reading after not reading much for quite a while.
– I’ve had snippets of the most random songs stuck in my head (especially at work) including the following: Minimoni’s “Chiccha na Chiccha na Onna no Ko,” KAT-TUN’s “WILDS OF MY HEART,” “Let Me Be Your Wings” (from Thumbelina), Morning Musume’s “Aishuu Romantic” (Sayu and Fuku-chan) (only the “TEKE TEKKE TEKE TE” line), “Step in Time” (from Mary Poppins), and part of one line from Morning Musume’s “Motto Aishite Hoshii no” (just “dakiyosete choudai” … that’s it XD), Reel Big Fish’s “Sell Out,” and Cherry Poppin’ Daddies’ “Stay, Don’t Just Stay,” and “Irish Whiskey.” Quite a variety, huh?
– I’ve been playing Rhythm Heaven on my 3DS and doing much better than I did before~! =D

– More H!P CDs (and a couple of NEWS CDs that I was missing), a bunch of nail polish (not sure why I’ve gotten back into painting my nails, but I have) and… mostly just food, I think, since I can finally eat more stuff! XD Ooh, I also got some snail cream from Amazon because I wanted to try it.

I got my braces off~~~~!! =D I bought trail mix right away; it’s the thing I’ve been missing the most. ♥

I have (what will hopefully be my last) surgery on the 3rd of October to get the post for my implant put in, so I took all of next week off. I have quite a few plans for videos, but I’m not sure how many I can get done. O_O I already have the dance for my Mom’s birthday done (not edited), and the MINI Tutorial for “Just Try!” done (almost done being edited). I wanted to get a couple of Surimu Stories filmed on my vacation, and maybe a dance, and the “Oh my wish!” MINI Tutorial… but I don’t know. (^_^”) Also, I know I still need to do the final contest; life’s just been a bit hectic lately. orz I’ll do it before the end of the year!

Marx Brothers movies~! My favorite is “A Night at the Opera,” but most of their movies are really funny. =D

モーニングみそ汁 (Dance Cover) Trivia

September 25, 2017

– This is the first time in a long time that I’ve uploaded a dance on the day that I recorded it. O_O

– The hardest part about this video timing the “dance break” correctly. The second hardest part was figuring out what to wear. XD

– I absolutely love this song (as well as the original), so I was able to listen to it repeatedly (to learn all three parts) without getting sick of it. ♥

– The part with the green sweater was a little tricky because I had to stay so far to the side. I had to step on the tiled part of the floor as well a few times and it threw me off a little bit. XD

I think that might be it for this one~. Thanks for watching and reading!
