Surimuchan [Now] #25 – November 2017

November 30, 2017

– I saw Thor: Ragnarok and Justice League in theaters. I really liked Thor (I’ve really liked all of the Thor movies) and Justice League wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be (not a glowing endorsement, I know XD).
– Even though I didn’t really care about it much when the songs first came out, Morning Musume ’17’s “Jama Shinaide Here We Go!” has been stuck in my head a lot over the past month. I think it has something to do with how much I like the part I did for that song in my giant Momusu dance medley. XD

– I got tons of H!P CDs (and the giant Blu-ray box sets of °C-ute and Buono!‘s final concerts)! I’m trying to get hard copies of all of the H!P album releases as well as significant singles (as well as singles from miscellaneous groups). =)
– I didn’t get nearly as much from the WWE Shop for this year’s Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales, though I did get signed photos of some wrestlers (including AJ Styles, my favorite!). Besides that, I got a Shield T-shirt (way before Black Friday), and I pre-ordered a framed plaque commemorating the Finn Bálor/AJ Styles match at TLC; it has a piece of the ring canvas! =D
– For non-H!P, non-WWE stuff, I bought Wonder Woman, Spider-Man Homecoming, and Kong: Skull Island on Blu-ray (on super-sale). I also bought a little LEGO Beast and a Belle/Gaston/Mrs. Potts Tsum Tsum Stackables set to add to my Beauty and the Beast collection~. ♥

– Work, and lots of it. O__O I haven’t had a ton of time to work on dances (I didn’t even have time to do that second redo dance I had been planning orz). It will be nice when work slows down a bit after the holidays.

– I have another Vlog Blooper video ready, and an auto-caption video is done being filmed but not quite done being edited. I plan on doing my usual Christmas dance video on December 22nd, like always~. I’d like to do more, but I don’t know what kind of time I’ll have, so I’ll probably end up uploading mostly miscellaneous videos for December. (^__^”)

The songs from ANGERME’s upcoming single, especially “Kimi Dake ja nai sa…friends“~! The first time I heard it, I immediately loved it and almost started tearing up during the chorus (and then the instrumental break, and then the layered vocals at the end…). TT_TT ♥♥♥

Thanks for reading~!

Surimuchan Dance Cover Comparisons – Mikan [2011 and 2017]

November 22, 2017

Better lighting! A slightly improved dance break! A special effect! Longer hair! Boots! … That’s about it! XD

~ Surimu-chan

みかん (Dance Cover) Trivia – [Take 2]

November 21, 2017

– I filmed this on November 16th.

– The outfit is almost exactly the same except I added boots and a silver and black scrunchie. I was also wearing a different black skirt.

– I finished this in one take! … But I was wearing something else so I had to do it over anyway. orz XD

– I was originally wearing a silver skirt (which I bought specifically for this), but I didn’t care for how it looked in this dance, so I redid it with a black skirt. orz

– The dance break looks a bit different because I actually looked at Gaki-san’s part for a bit of the dance break (because I felt Kamei danced a little differently from everyone else for that part).

– I wanted something a little different for this video since the dancing and outfit were so similar to my original dance cover, so I added that little color change part right after the dance break.

That’s all for this one! The comparison video will be uploaded tomorrow~. ^__^ Thanks for watching and reading!

This is the outfit that I’ll be wearing for my upcoming (redo) dance cover of Morning Musume’s “Mikan.”

Mikan17 1

Mikan [Take 2] Outfit

This dance cover will be uploaded tomorrow (which will be the ten-year anniversary of the release of “Mikan”)~. On November 22nd, I’ll upload a comparison video (like I did for “Kimagure Princess” and “Tokaikko Junjou”).

Please look forward to the improved dance cover~!

Surimuchan’s Morning Musume Mega Medley Fun Facts

November 7, 2017

A few extra fun facts…

~ Surimu-chan

Morning Musume 20th Anniversary Mega Dance Medley (Trivia)

November 4, 2017

– I filmed this on October 30th.

– I first started editing the song clips together on August 3rd.

– My original plan had been to upload this medley on September 9th (which was the 17th anniversary of the release of “LOVE Machine”), but then they announced their new single, so I had to wait for that to come out so I could add those three songs to the medley.

– As I said in the video description, my camera can’t film 23 minutes at once (it’s a point-and-click camera after all), so I had to put big pauses in the music so my mom could stop and restart the camera. I added the shirt changes for a little variety~.

– On my first attempt at filming this, I was going to wear the same thing (all black and grey, how boring! XD) through the whole dance and film in large chunks (about eight minutes each), but that meant, if I messed up, I’d have to redo a lot more. O_O

– The purple section made me mess up the most. You can tell that I’m starting to get tired at that point, because my moves weren’t as sharp for the rest of the dance (at least, it didn’t seem like it to me). orz

– I had to do a lot of hunting for performances to learn some of the dances that didn’t have dance shots.

– I’m pretty proud of some of the transitions in the music for this medley (especially for the singles from 2015, ’16, and ’17). =D

– That was my “I can’t believe I finally finished this I’m going to go collapse now” laugh at the end of the dance. XD

– In the picture at the very end, I’m holding a copy of Morning Musume’s indies single, “Ai no Tane,” as well as a copy of their latest single “Jama Shinai de Here We Go/Dokyuu no Go Sign/Wakaindashi!”; their first song and their latest song(s)~! =)

– Duh, I almost forgot to say that today is my eight-year anniversary on YouTube!

That’s all for this one~! I might actually make a video with this trivia and maybe a bit more at a later date… not sure yet~. Thanks for watching and reading~!! =D

Surimuchan [Now] #24 – October 2017

October 31, 2017

– I watched a handful of documentaries on YouTube and Netflix, the second season of Stranger Things (I need my paddles!!! XD), and RAW and SmackDown LIVE; I also watched the live action Beauty and the Beast (… didn’t care for it much at all… =/), and I rewatched the movie Penelope (which I love~!).
– For music, lots of H!P and WWE music as usual, but I also started revisiting music by some JE groups (Hey! Say! JUMP (“Candle” and “AinoArika”) and KAT-TUN specifically, since I hadn’t listened to them in quite a while).
– I tried to get back into playing Final Fantasy III, but I just haven’t had a ton of time. orz I did get a cheap game called Arcade Bowling that I’ve been playing like crazy though (the rounds are super-fast).

– Lots of used H!P CDs, the first season of Stranger Things on Blu-ray, clearance Beauty and Beast blind pack keychains (I ended up getting the full set), and a couple of things on the WWE Shop (couldn’t help it after seeing another live show (^_^”))
– A bunch of Japanese candy and snacks from Amazon just because~

– Surgery to place the post for the tooth implant I’m getting was on the 3rd; slightly painful, but I got through it
– More anxiety attacks, including one of my most severe =(
– I went to a WWE PPV, whoa my goodness~!!!! TLC was fun~! I was especially excited that I got to see AJ Styles (again! and on a RAW show!) vs. Finn Balor (such a cool entrance!)~!! The match was amazing~! The main event was kind of a mess, but it was a fun mess~. XD And Asuka debuted (… was kind of hoping for a squash match, but…)! =D

– I have a huge video ready for my eight-year YouTube anniversary~! ^_~
– I also plan on redoing a couple of dances for the end of November (though I haven’t started relearning them yet… orz).

– Arcade Bowling for the DS (DSi, 3DS)~! It’s just Skee-Ball, but it’s addictive (almost infuriatingly so). =)
