Not to mention the occasional translation. Which, by the way, will probably get less occasional as time passes.

|Anonymous: The cover of let it go and river flows into you was really well done!!! Good job ras-san!!! Just a question, how do you figure what kind of harmonies to add in? If you're just 'by feeling', you're really a talent!! Keep it up!~|
Ahhh thank you;;;
Umm I know that I don’t really have any talent for making harmonies, but for the past year when covering songs, I’ve practiced harmonies by memorizing harmony lines of other songs and creating new ones, so that’s how where I am today. also, having taken music theory class in high school helped a bit, because it’s from there that I know that 3rd and 6th intervals sound richer while 4th and 5th sound more hollow - that’s why most harmonies in popular music are 3rd or 6ths. So in some parts was like “for some reason I feel a hollow sound would really work here” so I used a 4th or a 5th. With practice I’ve had to ‘calculate’ harmonies less and simply churn out a 3rd below harmony line simply by following patterns in other songs that eventually became familiar to me.
This cover ended up being fairly easy to harmonize because in most songs, the hardest thing about harmonies is understanding that usually each note that you sing should be a part of the underlying chord, and I’m not that good at picking apart chords. In River Flows In You however, the piano part splits up chords into separate, making it intrinsically easier to realize what sort of harmony (as well as melody changes) would fit.
So basically it’s ‘by feeling’, but it’s a feeling that comes with practice, and some more academic theory-based considerations also come into play.
I don’t know why I haven’t seen this kickstarter all over tumblr yet.
Basically Catfe is a cat cafe, like the ones in Japan, that is trying to start up in Los Angeles, CA. They’ve already got the OK from LA department of health and LA animal services to start up their business but they need about $350,000 to get started up. At the moment they only have about $4,340.
But the really cool thing is, its not just a cat cafe! They plan to work with local shelters to house social cats, help them get adopted and help spread over all awareness. They also plan to host special events for local nonprofits as a way of giving back to the community, like children with disestablishes or orphanages.
You’d expect that once its started up it would be kind of expensive to get in with the cats right? Nope! They plan on pretty cheap rates!
|Anonymous: Hello. I know you have translated for translating manga but I want to know how to ask a artist if you can translate a piece of artwork not a manga|
oh!! usually i say like イラストのテキストを翻訳してもいいですか？
if you have a pet and i’ve ever visited your house: i’m sorry
Ahaha this was kind of an impulse cover;;
Yeah, there’s no way to portmanteau Let it Go and River Flows in You without sounding really dumb.
Besides that, though, it turned out really fun.

This is exactly how I feel about him too. But do you like him now after all that?
well i havent watched the really recent episode, but since technically the exorcism will only work when the shinki has repented, then although under normal circumstances i wouldnt believe that he repented, here it’s been indirectly canonically stated that he’s truly sorry, so my opinion on him is basically neutral now. I’m sure I’ll grow to like him in the episodes to come, but for now he’s a blank slate whose sole purpose was to offer a foil to yato and as a plot device to demonstrate how cruel the world of gods is.
