Touhou Arrange Music

Changing sites, and gigant wall of updates.

It isn’t a common tradition of mine neither changing sites every morning or giving a headache to you because of the amount of times we have switched. But the site in witch were turned out to be quite complicated for both of us, ChaosAngel & Emiya, and over the time we preffered the site that we had here. So once again I beg you guys an apologize for switching a site again, but I promise you this will be the last time for quite a while.

This re-opening of this site came with a surprise too, and also a re-opening! for those who don’t know, there is a new cowboy in town who is going to handle the Techno/Electronic playlist (a.k.a Lyrica playlist). His name is Moomaria, and he is a very good friend (those who read those wall of text on the Lunasa playlist can recall him being mentioned on serval occations) and I can ensure you he is a trustworthy co-worker who is going to handle things a whole lot better than Myonbel did.

Yeah, talking about Myonbel…..I guess I owe everyone an apologize, first for not realizing the possibilities of leaving his account in his hands (there wasn’t actually I could do much, after all he had total control over it), and second for not considering how Myonbel could react against many of you. Last but not least, I apologize for not taking action before too, but I’m glad many of you decided to take the problems in their own hands, resolving the issue for the rest of the community. From the deepest of my heart, to all of them, you have my deepest thank you, and please excuse the lack of answering there has been on me in the past days.

Anyway, the fact is that you can be sure Moomaria is a great person, I can promise you that, and for a because an image speaks better than thousand words (or so they have told me) how about a video with music?:

About the past videos on Lyrica playlist, do not worry. I’m working on to see how are we going to re-upload them. I’m sure someone has already took action before us (Thanks a lot JenejeanTou, please excuse me for taking so long to notice your actions) and I hope he can help us with the rest of them. I say I hope, because I haven’t talk to him, but I’m going to send him a PM in the moment I finish with this post. I want to also thank a lot to everyone ( Thanks a lot to you too UNGunWasHim ) who were avid of techno and decided to continue with the task. I apreciate a lot people want to continue with whatever project I left, and I’m also glad people is whilling to share their music with others.

I just wanted to let know everyone that “The Poltergeist Mansion” isn’t a special spot reserved for someone special, neither none of us are being paid to do this. The only reason we are doing this is because we enjoy it, and the Poltergeist Mansion concept was only created in the need of a good and catchy name for this (or past) site. This concept lead me to name the playlist like the name of the 3 poltergeists from the Perfect Cherry Blossom game. Actually, back when I created the site, there wasn’t any Lyrica playlist, and I wasn’t planning to, but as soon I named Metal playlist as “Lunasa” and “Merlin”, everyone wondered “Who is Lyrica?”, and eventually the only mayor genre that was lacking on “our collection” was techno. One thing lead to another and so we found ourselves in this moment. The objective to tell everyone this, is that no matter what, everyone is on their right of sharing the music they want under the conditions they want, so there is no real privilege on being here. Remember the site (and therefore the name), was just a shelter in case someone got banned, and it did serve its objective. I would more than happy to give every channel an spot, and try to attract as many people to Touhou Music, but unfortunately I don’t have time to listen and recognize every channel I step on. Sharing isn’t privilege of anyone, and so it isn’t this site.

If I decided to assign Moomaria to this task, is because he has been a friend of mine for quite a while, and Emiya I could trust him with my life. I know their MSN accounts, and I already know their available times (since all of us live in different country). It didn’t noticed how important was the techno playlist to some people, till Myonbel closed his account. In this days I have been free, and I have dedicated to solve many issues, and as fast as I could before I return to my mathemathical/musical isolation. Moomaria is the best option for those who enjoy techno, and for me to ensure everything work the way it has to work. So please, I apologize to everyone who wants to join in this little project and I hope you understand that time does not allow me to talk with everyone whilling to do the job. By the way, if you are wondering why I asigned Myonbel to this task in the first place….well you are right, he didn’t fit with anything I described in the last paragraph, but lets just say that the assignment was a “Damage Control” ;)

About Lunasa playlist. As many of you have seen, I have been focused on uploading the first 100 videos, with occasional new (as in never uploaded on the channel before) content. This is/was because It consumes less time to do it, and its the perfect job to do it while I was busy on university. I’ll try to finish this week uploading up to the 100 video, and then I’ll upload new stuff from the past events I have missed up. Once I return, to my duties, I will continue re-uploading videos from the 101 to (I hope) 250. For those wondering about the files, “The Poltergeist List” is up to date, and I will start uploading the rar files from the first 100 videos. I hope that for video 100, I have many of the music uploaded (music from 0 to 20 is already online) and all the images too (images are going to be in 1 rar file, that will contain images from 0 to 100).

Last but not least, I created a facebook profile. There isn’t an strict objective about this, is just to let more people know about Touhou music, and because some people prefer to comment on that site. Also it makes wonders when you need to spread the news about something fast, so take it as a news updater. The full post will appear on this site, however to those who like facebook, I’ll update the profile everytime some post concerning something important (like this one) about the channels.

There isn’t much more to say, except once again thanking to all of you for being the supportive you are, and as usual thanking you for watching. The blog will continue it’s eternal construction, and while I still figure out a nice banner (the past doesn’t fit) I will try to keep update in here. It’s hard to read every comment, and so does the un-answered inbox I have been leaving since like 2 months, but I’m thinking calling someone (Not Myonbel I promise) who takes care of answering most of your questions and keep track of the suggestions, as well as modering (this aren’t forums I know) this site. While this task can be the most boring thing on the world (and tedious too), at least we could ensure a fast way of keeping things here un answered.

I curse time gods. I hate time limit. Oh Sakuya….why can’t you be real and stop time?

Thanks for watching.

    By the way, re-reading this post made me aware of 2 things:

    a) English still sucks.

    b) The contrast of the background and the color of the font makes the eyes go clunky.

    I’m sure everyone notices “a)”, however, Am I the only one with “b)”?

      Well, I suppose I can’t argue about a), but if you really care so much just about your grammar have someone proofread it for you or just do it as best you can yourself. I’ll give b) a maybe, though it didn’t bother me too much. I was wondering though, is moomar going to become one of the “authors” here now too?

        Having someone proofred, that sounds like a good idea, but who will be tortured?
        About b), glad to know I’m only tired.

        And yes, Moomaria also will contribute in this blog as well from time to time.

      There are plenty of fluent english speakers laying around, you just have to pick one up. I happen to be one, but the most I could do would be to point out corrections after you post. And the only good way to get good at english would be to read higher level novels and see how the writers do it. Honestly, if it wasn’t my first language, I don’t know how I would be able to learn English.

    Here we are again, good old cozy mansion (a bit nostalgic though). Tea tastes great here :)

    b) depends on your display device/settings. Seems ok to me, but getting the background a bit brighter may be easier on eyes for those using LCDs with higher contrast

    take care

    Well, the most you can do with A is just work on it, but yes, having someone proofread it is probably the best way of doing it. That, and if anything, it’ll help you with learning it more too! Never know! As for b….hmmm. Depends on the lighting at the time. Sometimes it can be hard to read, sometimes not. Though using a background with no field (like how the reply box at the bottom here has a black border) is kinda hard. It’s an issue I have with my own site too (which I haven’t updated in months now that I think about it…).

    But good to know that everything is working out I suppose~ But if anything, keep up the good work, and with you, keep at it with university. Taking care of yourself should prioritize over anything else. We can all wait as long as needed if you need time to do things!

    Somehow, I don’t notice either one of them. I never liked white text over black, but besides that, the background doesn’t really screw over your eyes, and your grammar is much better than the grammar of some other blogs that I’ve been on.
    …Though, I suppose that, after looking more closely at your sentences, I do see a few mistakes.

    Oh, by the way, you should probably update your link for the Touhou Wiki to point to touhouwiki.net, as the Touhou Wiki has moved to that site.

    Anyway, nice to see this site coming back to life again!
