Surimuchan [Now] #23 – September 2017

September 30, 2017

Entertainment
– 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

Purchases
– 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.

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

Plans
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!

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

Thanks for reading~!

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!

セクシーキャットの演説 (Dance Cover) Trivia

August 9, 2017

– I filmed this on July 21st.

– The cat ears I have for this dance are actually bunny ears that I bought around Easter. XD I wound them around the headband to make them shorter and more cat-like. When I saw a grey bunny ear headband for a dollar, I figured there had to be some way for me to turn them into cat ears so that I could do this dance.

– I got the cat paw fingerless gloves a while back from a Doki Doki Crate~.

– I wasn’t going to have a tail at first, but it seemed a bit off without it. (^_^”)

– That hairstyle is not only practical in that it kept my hair out of my face, but it also kept the headband in place. =D

– I wanted to do something cat-like for a special ending clip, so I had to think, “What do cats do a lot?” … Push things off of tables/counters/whatever, right? XDD

– I resolved to follow one of the three “cat” parts early on because the dance for the rest of the members is pretty ridiculous. XD orz

I think that may be it for this one~. That’s the last of my Neko Dance Set! I hope you enjoyed them all~! Thanks for watching and reading~~! =D

ハッピーサマーウェディング (Dance Cover) Trivia

July 1, 2017

– I filmed this on June 25th.

– I remember “practicing” this dance waaay back in 2007/2008 when I first found Morning Musume’s music. =)

– One thing that kept me from doing this dance for so long was finding a proper outfit. … What I ended up with wasn’t amazing, but it worked, I guess. XD orz

– I had a bunch of extra red fabric left over from the stuff I bought for my “Iroppoi Jirettai” outfit, so I just hemmed the edges and pinned it in certain places to make a sort of skirt. I didn’t want to cut the fabric up in case I needed it later, so I actually had a ton of the extra fabric tucked into the waistband of my shorts. XD

– The gold headband I’m wearing was originally going to be used for a veil, but the tulle that I have is too stiff/scratchy to fall nicely. (^_^”)

– As I said in the video description, I incorporated the 4th generations moves during the chorus into the dance, but I also tried to continue with the main singers’ movements… it didn’t look too great in the end. orz I probably should have just used the 4th gen. dancing throughout, but it’s too late now~~~… orz

– I had originally wanted to split screen the choruses in this dance so that I could do the main part and the 4th gen. parts separately, but I just decided not to. Maybe I wanted it to be like a throwback to some of my earlier dance covers… or maybe I’m getting lazy in my old age. XD TT_TT

– Another effect I thought about using was an overlay of a close up of me doing the spoken part during the dance break, but I figured that would take away from the actual dancing, so I decided against it.

– I wish I could have done a better “Pa Pa Pala no ACHAA” kick, but that skirt wasn’t terribly easy to move in. (^_^”)

I guess that’s about it~. Thanks for watching and reading~! =)
