Hatsune Miku and the Amazing horse.

Those two things have nothing to do with each other. That’s really the first thing I need to say. The second is that I have been gone for a very long time. Criminally long, really. I think I just got tired or distracted or something. Erm,….or something may have been it. I mean how exhausting can blogging possibly be?

More importantly, Hatsune Miku. It’s faster to link to Wikipedia than launch into a full explanation for those who don’t know, so that is what I will do. I will also do some explaining so you don’t have to actually follow the link. Hatsune Miku is a character that sings. Well, technically Miku is the face of a program that sings. The basics (or what I remember) is that Miku is a vocaloid. She has a synthesized voice and sings whatever you type (In Japanese). Her voice is fairly high, and originally belonged to a real person.  Miku’s not the only one of her kind. There are others, but Miku’s the one that everyone seems to know. I only remember the name of one other Vocaloid, and that’s Luka. I believe she has pink hair. Fortunately, there are nerdier people than me on the internet and they know a fair bit about the vocaloids. Here, have a Tvtropes link.  What does any of this have to do with an amazing horse? Nothing, as I said before. However, I did mention in the post before this one that I wanted Miku to sing the Amazing Horse song. It seemed like a good idea at the time. What’s this Amazing Horse song I’m going on about?

This:

At the time I wrote my last post, I had recently spent a day on KnowYourMeme looking at various versions of that song. I found it to be highly entertaining. Hatsune Miku came into it because that was also the day I’d been looking at Ievan Polka/Leekspin and other anime related memes.  Miku isn’t the leek girl, but there’s a Miku version of Ievan Polka (I believe I posted about this already). The point is the that the two things got smushed together in my head somehow, and hearing Miku sing the Amazing Horse song suddenly seemed like something that would be cool. However, it now occurs to me that two vocaloids would be necessary to sing it correctly. Hopefully, someone with a lot of time on their hands and a fondness for memes will make this happen.

Important Things To Know About Miku:

She is the face of singing software. She is not from an anime. Asking what anime she’s from will get you laughed off the internet.

Important Things To Know About the Amazing Horse Song:

Not much really. It’s just amusing. I believe a fellow known as Weebl made it.

Next Time: American Psycho. Again? But why? Because you touch yourself at night. Also, Touhou.

Sanctuary, Ilevan Polka

Sanctuary is a Sci fi show. I’m behind on it, but I don’t really care because I’m a bit bothered by it’s recent play times. Lately, it’s been in The X-files spot, which is at 2am in the morning on Sci-fi channel (I’m not spelling it SyFy, that spelling’s stupid) This wouldn’t matter and I wouldn’t care, except that I like The X-files. I know that it’s been over for years, but that’s not the point. The point is that I like watching the reruns. I like watching reruns of shows I like, and on Tv is as good as anyplace to watch them. So what? You say. Buy the box set, you say. I don’t have money for that. I rarely have money for things like that. For that reason, Tv is currently the most convenient place I can watch X-files reruns. Now, Sanctuary used to be in the spot right after the X-files. That was fine. I liked it there. I’d like it in it’s new place too if The X-files played after, but they don’t. I’m guessing that Sci-fi channel’s moved the show or taken it off, and I know that they don’t care what one random idiot who stays up too late thinks,  but I wish they wouldn’t. I never did manage to see all the episodes, and I’m still trying to. However, this post was supposed to be about Sanctuary, not the X-files. I shall try to get back on track.

Sanctuary is okay. I don’t think I like it as much as the X-files, but I always figured I wouldn’t. The only reason I ever watch it is because Amanda Tapping plays Dr. Helen Magnus. Helen Magnus is the main main character. She runs this place called the sanctuary. It’s a sanctuary for abnormals (think mutants and fantasy creatures) and it doubles as a research facility for studying abnormals.  I don’t know many other character’s names. There’s a guy who works there, he seems new to the whole thing, seems normal. I think his name is Daniel. (too lazy to Google)  There’s another guy, the Techie. Then there’s a ape looking fellow. He seems friendly. As for the females, there are two besides Magnus. One is her daughter, Ashley. She helps out from time to time. I don’t know the other girl’s name. She seems snarky. Anyway, the reason I don’t think I like Sanctuary as much as the X-Files is because I don’t have a favorite character. That, and it’s just not the same.  The reason Amanda Tapping has any bearing on why I watch the show is because she was in Stargate Sg-1, also known as the best of the Stargates.  (in my opinion)  Sanctuary really just reminds me of Mutant-X. Sorta. I recalled similar issues liking that show. Fortunately, I had a favorite character. Unfortunately…

Well… never mind. I shouldn’t mention it here. I’m done with the Sanctuary/Sci-fi Tv shows part of the post anyway. Onwards to…!

Ilevan Polka.

Here, have a vid:

That’s the Loituma Girl vid. It’s just a looped animation of Orihime Inoue from the second episode of Bleach. I like the song. I looped it for six hours via leekpsin. It’s one of those random anime memes that I happen to know about. The other two are Carmelldansen and Caipirinha. The first is annoying, the second is equally so. That’s just my opinion though.  I don’t know why I like Ilevan Polka. I just do. I like when Hatsune Miku sings it too. My hearing her sing it sparked a very random anime meme/all things Hatsune Miku craze. It only lasted half a day, but it was fun in it’s own random way.

And just for kicks, have the Hatsune Miku vid as well:

I’m over 600 words, so I’m stopping now.

Next Time: Who’s Hatsune Miku? Glad you asked. Also, my horse is amazing.
