Touhou Arrange Music

Musc N' Video

Only a master of dexterity could rotate a T-Block in time…..but it’s done!

Well that certainly went quicker than expected.  The Lyrica playlist has been fully restored.  A huge thanks to all the youtubes who offered their assistance.  You guys kept me supplied; therefore I kept at work.  I  apologize for the massive spam I have probably incurred on your poor subscription box.  If it caused you to temporarily unsubscribe, it’s over now!  Now we can get on to the real music, EH?

Haha, see you guys soon.

ChaosAngel: Nice post Moomaria, and thanks for your titanic work. Quick update on the poltergeist list, all the music and images from the metal channel, from 0 to 100 videos is online.

Thanks for watching.


A Sincere Hello, Reporting for Duty, and Humble Request.

Howdy!  This is your new Lyrica, Moomaria, at your service.  Apologies for the somewhat late introduction, but I needed a little while to get nestled and for various events to unfold so that I could have more than a few sentences to type!

Firstly, I’d like to thank Chaos Angel and Emiya for allowing me to pick up the Lyrica playlist.  It is a great opportunity and honor that I will not take for granted.  An even bigger thanks yet goes to Myonbel for their diligent and hard work thus far; sharing many great arranges with the masses to enjoy.  Your time spent here has been appreciated by us all.  Your unique qualities and persona made you quite an interesting character.  No one can ever truly replace you.

I apologize for if, at any point, this seems like I’m rambling or not making any sense.  I’ve never really participated in blogging my entire life, so this is a first for me.
So a little bit about myself, eh?  Okay, here goes.

I’m a guy.  Let’s get that done with.  Got it?  Good.  I live in the United States (Virginia), I’m a slacking 10-year-plan college student/pharmacy technician/otaku/alien.  I like cheese.  I like walks on the beaches….. ok forget that noise.  I first stumbled across Touhou while playing World of Warcraft in 2006, when a friend and fellow guild-mate told me about MegaMari.  Seeing how literally 99% of my childhood was spent playing MegaMan, I was instantly interested in the so-called “hardest megaman clone ever”.  That would be it.  That was the trigger, the catalyst, the beginning of my addiction to Touhou.  I played the shit out of that game until I was 25-mushroom coding in my sleep.  I’m also a novice Let’s Play’er, so some of you may have stumbled across one of my MegaMari LP’s via my channel.  I began my LP adventures on Dailymotion, so that’s why some of the dates might seem a little off.  My interest in Touhou at that point diminished somewhat until I discovered Doujinstyle and, yep, you guessed it, Chaos Angel and his youtube playlist.  While I do enjoy playing Touhou games a great deal (I have 1cc’d everything on Lunatic), the music became my soul food.  You can’t really describe or explain fully what it is exactly about it that captivates you and keeps you addicted.  Maybe it’s the association across vast genres and circles.  The ability to say “Hey, I can actually be a valid critic and analyze this!”, because you actually have a control (the original themes) to base your critique off of.  Whatever it is, it’s had me hooked ever since.  I love pretty much any genre that I can groove to.  And while I am fronting up the Lyrica playlist, It doesn’t necessarily mean Electronic is the only thing I’m fond of.  Okay that was a bit redundant.  But yes, my subscribers prior to taking over the Lyrica reins can attest to my tastes, as I was uploading arranges before that.

Now, speaking of the Lyrica playlist.  The re-construction has been clipping at quite a fast pace so far, but as I eluded to earlier on video #161, I’ve now hit a snag.  JeanejeanTou has been gracious in providing us with the majority of information on the videos thus far, but has run out of the means required to continue providing said information.  Luckily, they have informed me of a way in which we can once again acquire that information.  I know many of you favorited or put many of Myonbel’s videos into your own playlist.  If you are one of those people, then we can finish this thing no sweat.  I’m just going to quote our friend here.

“Now here is a way so the viewers of Myonbel can help. If they kept a playlist/favorites of Myonbel’s original upload.

By then the viewers can right click the playlist/favorites page (where they can edit their list) and just right click the page and select View Page Source and viola. Use Ctrl+F to find the number (Ex. 123) and there is all the descriptions of the upload. Like Song Title, Original, Her (I’m positive she is a girl) wall of text, etc no picture though. Then the viewers will send a PM of the descriptions by of course copy and paste.”  Alternatively, I found you can also CTRL+F for “Myonbel”, and that would also lead you to relevent infos.

So basically, what I need is the information from video #81-156 (Final).  If you happened to favorite, like, or put any of said videos into a playlist, would you be so kind as to send me a PM on youtube @ moomar2 with the playlist # and the song information.  You can omit the personal wall of texts Myonbel wrote, we’re not too concerned about that.  And remember, we have the image and music packs as a reference, so I will use my deductive reasoning to determine what images go with what arrange.  However, if you feel the need to tell me that too, I would appreciate it, along with any other information you feel might be important.  And who knows, I’m a very accommodating and generous person; so there could possibly be some rewarding to those kind souls who help out.

Together we can finish this thing before Chaos can even upload 1 video!  I truly look forward to the good times I hope to have here and with all of you, the viewers.  Take care and god bless.

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.


Our trip through ZUN’s wonderland… Act 1

What I want to say as a prelude is already in that video’s description, please do give it a nice read…
Here’s the story, cut me some slack, I wrote it in less then 10 minutes or so:

“Wait up Renko!”
“Hurry up Mary, we’ll lose the train if we don’t hurry up!”

We’re in a train station, in the middle of the night. Renko and Maribel are about to take a strange train, it’s called the “Emiya Express”, they found out about it on some fliers that where around.

“Which binary is it?”
“Hmm… it says… ⑨…”
“9?”
“No, it says 9-circle”
“That’s weird, I’ve never seen a ninth binary here, they seem to end at 8, what a small station…”

The 2 girls notice a mister with white hair and luggage walking in a rather swift and messy manner, not to mention his rather strange attire. And to top it all off at this time at night, in such a deserted station, rather unusual…

“Let’s ask that guy!”
“Wait! Renkooo…”

The 2 girls approach the mister, who stops, eying them in a rather strange manner.

“Can I help you?”
“Yes! Do you by any chance know where binary ⑨ is?”

Renko shows the sir the flier. Suddenly a look of interest sparks in the man’s eyes.

“Hohoho, why yes, I shall take you there, it is rather simple really, watch and learn.”

The man steps aside and where his luggage used to be appears a “slice” of the sorts on the ground. Maribel gasps in awe.

“What’s wrong Mary. Wait, don’t tell me…”
“Yes… it’s a boundary”
The man smirks, “Rather well informed little girls we have here, now do we? Step on in”
“Wait… Renko… is this really OK? Following a stranger and all…”
“Bah, who cares, let’s just get going, we might lose the train!”

The two girls jump into what they defined as a “boundary”.

After a rather rough landing, the two girls find themselves in front of a pretty normal train. A dump of a train, really.

“This is what is going to bring us to “wonderland”….?”
“Hahaaa… Let’s just get in, maybe it looks better inside!”

The two girls step inside and they find themselves in a totally different place. A very luxurious train, the two girls cannot help but gasp in awe. Soon after that the man from earlier approaches them, this time dressed more formally.

“Surprised, now are we?”
“The flier was not kidding when it said “a comfortable trip to wonderland”…”
“May I take you to your cabin?”
“Please do!”

The man takes us to a cabin and opens the door, we deposit our luggage inside and take a seat in the extremely comfortable seats.

“We sure are going to enjoy this, now are we!” The two girls say in unison

Suddenly the man from before starts talking in the train’s broadcast.

“Welcome to the Emiya express, I hope you enjoy your trip through what I called “ZUN’s wonderland”, I will be your guide and captain, my name? Hoho, such things are not needed.”

The two girls look at each other and say in unison.

“What a strange man…”

Suddenly some relaxing classical music starts playing……

There are slight differences between this train and ZUN’s Hiroshige, for one the windows are not kaleidoscopic.

Thanks for reading, please do tell me what you think about this little “project”, I’d love to know.
