If you had a million dollars (100,000,000 yen) what would you do?
Use part of it to pay for college, donate part of it, then buy a big-ass boat (I'm kidding about that last part)
Today's outfit is/was...?
Jeans, button-up shirt, pullover sweater.
Looks vs confidence: which wins?
I think it's really a combo of both. If you present yourself well but don't have the confidence to pull it off, then people will notice, I think, Likewise, if you have a lot of confidence but come across as sloppy, then people might "judge a book by its cover," so to speak.
Any specific improvement goals you have this year for your art/music/writing/whatever you're currently training your skills on?
I'll probably work on my web design skills this summer and try to get together an UTAU site in the process, so I guess that's my goal.
I find your eyebrows really sexy...
If you wee a vegetable, which one would you be?
Potato, because everybody loves french fries, right?
Are there activities/hobbies you used to have that you don't partake in anymore? How about old fandoms you've been in?
Other than the game-show taping I mentioned earlier, I was never a big hobbyist (other than drawing). I think my only major old fandoms (I don't count stuff I'm not as into nowadays but still partake in) were the Kirby and realnews fandoms (a fandom that is based around news anchors, basically. Not to be confused with the fakenews fandom which concerns The Daily Show/Colbert Report), and that was back in the livejournal days. Other than that? Well, I used to be a lot more involved in the Pokemon fandom, but as I still play the games and draw Pokemon occasionally, I'm not really "out" of the fandom.
Any explanations for your current ask.fm avatar?
Just a random drawing of Cactloid.
Any near-death accidents? (Please don't answer if it feels uncomfortable!)
Ever been to a convention? Share some memories! Or if you haven't, are there any you'd want to go to?
I've never been to a convention. I'd love to go to a more general con (Like, one that wasn't just for anime or sci-fi), personally.
Name a reality/contest/competition TV show you'd want to participate in?
Name a song you'd want any band/singer to cover regardless of language barriers.
This is pretty general, but I would love to see a Japanese vocaloid producer do a remix/cover of basically any American/British pop/rock song from the 70's/80's. The styles are so different, so It'd be interesting!
Are you a youtuber? What video are you most proud of? What's your most popular video?
First of all, I hate the word "youtuber." Second of all, I think that's pretty obvious, haha.
I think the video I'm proudest of is the Heartbreak Headlines PV I made nearly 2 years ago.
Most popular one is the UTAU Medley chorus (because it has the most views and most stupid comments)
If you had the power to command for a sequel/reboot any series/movie/game/book what would it be?
I would have a remake of Mr. Gimmick produced.(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gimmick!)
It sounds like an interesting game and I think it would benefit from the features of a remake (maybe difficulty levels for example)
Traveled anywhere? Tell me a story regarding a time you traveled somewhere else.
So, I was in Seattle a couple of years ago, and I went to the book store connected to Uwajimaya (A big Japanese supermarket that's close to the football stadium), and I had like 100 bucks I saved up for my own spending money while I was there. I ended up spending nearly 100 dollars and that was the most of my own money I had ever spent at once at that point. I DIDN'T EVEN BUY EVERYTHING I WANTED.
Also, I was waking by a ramen restaurant in the same place (International District, pretty much Seattle's Chinatown but with a more PC name), and there was a sign up that said something along the lines of "disruptive people will be kicked out." There was also something up there about an anime convention. I think the two might have been related.
(Can you tell I really liked Seattle)
What kind of music genre fusions would you like to hear?
I think electronic mixed with afro-cuban music styles would be interesting. (It's probably already been done, though)
Nastiest tasting food you've eaten?
Salmiakki. It's salted licorice that uses ammonium chloride instead of sodium chloride, and it is the worst thing ever.
Are you the type that would try bungee jumping or sky diving?
Any fun facts about yourself you don't think many people know that you'd like to share?
-I used to be MAD OBSESSED with game shows when I was 13. I'd record them with my old TV that had a VCR built in.
-Related to that, when I was a kid I was really into old TV shows and movies. Back then I wished that I was born like 2 or 3 decades before I actually was just to experience all the 70's/80's stuff. I still have an appreciation for vintage stuff because of my old obsession.
-I am absolutely terrible at keeping up with new shows because I have a huge list of stuff I want to watch, and I usually watch from my "back-catalog," so to speak. Complicating matters is...
-I have an inability to marathon shows for very long. 4-6 episodes for half-hour shows and 2-3 hour shows is my limit. I am absolutely not one of those people who can watch a show all day and do nothing but that, and I think that people who can watch all these shows yet have a full-time job are amazing.
-I love menswear and I really love women's clothes based on menswear. Unfortunately, I don't have a legitimate reason to buy stuff like that.
-I was obsessed with science when I was a kid. I wanted to be a zoologist when I grew up. (Ironically, I'm not crazy about animals now.)
What activities did you do when you visited beaches? Or if you haven't been to the beach, would you want to?
Generally, I like to walk on the beach, preferably during sunrise or just before sunset. Lake Michigan has some really nice stretches of coastline where there aren't a whole lot of people.
Any clothes you've been eyeing to buy? Or anything you've seen online that you'd love to add to your wardrobe?
I would love some skirts and shirtdresses that would go with anything, but things cost money.
Have you ever thrown up after eating?
One time when I was 13, I chugged a bagel and some tea and bolted up the stairs. My stomach didn't like that too much.
Recollect a positive silly moment in your life.
So, back when me and mx talked frequently on MSN, I showed her this one picture I found of former NBA player Kevin McHale (not to be confused with that one guy on Glee) wearing impossibly short shorts. (http://www.gettyimages.com/detail/news-photo/kevin-mchale-of-the-boston-celtics-filming-a-bank-news-photo/75887011)
Later, she tells me that when she goes to use the copier (I think it was the copier, this was like 3 years ago), the guy who works there looks exactly like him but really fat, and she could barely contain her laughter.
More recently, me and my family were playing Scattergories, and we had to come up with terms of endearment beginning with J. We were all laughing when writing down our answers and everyone's answers were pretty much nonsensical; my mom had "Jammie-pants" among her answers, and I had...Jumbo-butt. That was legitimately the most I've laughed in weeks.
Are there things you possess you can't find the will to throw away?
Probably the old artwork I did in art class. Other than that, can't think of much.
If suddenly one day you could not talk anymore and only could say one word, what would it be?
