Hello my (not) numerous readers.

Something I've done recently. I got myself the software Vocaloid 2, which I must admit is quite a piece of work. It's typically in Japanese but there's an English version as well. There's a fairly large culture in japan surrounding Vocaloid, and specifically, one of its voices- Miku Hatsune (初音ミク), who acts as a sort of mascot along a bunch of other mascots. Someone even created a software for making dance music videos using 3D models of Miku and the others, called MikuMikuDance. The newer versions also have (moderately well translated) English language support.

Here's a video documentary of Miku Hatsune (Hatsune Miku in Japanese name order), with Vocaloid 2 and MikuMikuDance making appearances. There are English subtitles available.

I've been playing around a bit with the Vocaloid 2 software and MikuMikuDance. Both are very easy to use for their power. I may mention them again in later updates.

Hello, sorry I have not posted recently (like anybody noticed). I'll get back to you all as soon as I come up with something fun to post about. Which hopefully will be shortly.
