And believe me, I am still alive
My newest music video is finished and on the internet now. It competed over at Anime Central and Jafax, and while it didn't win at Acen ("a close second," I was told, though!), it did win over at Jafax -- it won Best of Comedy, Audience Choice, and Best of Show :D :D :D While I got three faux engraved glass trophies for it (you can barely make out one on the shelf by my knee in the pic below), I was also given the entire Deathnote manga. Deathnote's actually a series I semi-regularly tried to keep up with, ever since my buddy Biccy introduced me to the online scanlations, and since then, I usually grabbed a cookie or something at a B&N, then read a volume in the cafe. Having the whole series now's kinda a treat! I also won a, um...zip-up tie which I honestly wouldn't be caught dead wearing in public.
(blatant L pose! :D )
I uploaded it onto YouTube a couple days ago after a lot of delays, didn't get any response for awhile, I went and took a nap...and the next time I checked my e-mail, I suddenly had around 30 comments, and they kept coming in. Right now, the vid has about 2,000 hits, and it's barely been three days! o_O I knew I'd edited together a good video, but I wasn't expecting such a ravenous response (thanks, Risembool Rangers!). The video took me about 2 months of work of watching anime, downloading/ripping footage, and editing it all together. My girlfriend made all the original animation. And overall, we're quite pleased...and so is the singer! (I met him at Acen, and he hugged me when he found out who I was! :D ). I hope you all enjoy it as well! =)
