On a train in the Netherlands late one night, we got bored. We were worried about how the conductor would react, at first, but he turned out to be a fun old man after all. Even some of the other passengers got interested! It’s hard enough to even keep your balance while playing as the train’s moving, let alone actually play well, so we hope that the simple act of us playing DDR on a train is enough to make this video entertaining. Because it sure was for us. Now if only I could’ve got my soundcase through airport security…
The simfiles we played were “Doll Judgement” and “Love-Coloured Master Spark” (simfiles made by Gpop), from a pack named “Touhou Pad Pack”. Thanks to Dnstje for filming and taking his dance mat with him, and to MasterPJ55 for motivating us to actually do something so win.
I didn’t notice at the time that the bag being held at 06:17 appropriately looks just like a power item from the Touhou games.
This is a laser show created by ThePDI for Kotoko’s “Suppuration -core-”, played on Dnstje’s 40kpps RGB laser projector. We kind of overdid it with the smoke machine at one point (that thing is overkill for such a small room).
The projector has a 400 mW red laser, 150 mW green laser and an 89 mW blue laser, although blue is barely used in this show. Having caused a lot of dead pixels on a previous camcorder of mine by having this projector shine directly onto its image sensor, I wasn’t going to risk it again. Therefore I recorded this show from slightly underneath the projector instead of directly in front of it (I was less than a metre away from it).
The song is from the I’ve Sound / Kotoko album “Re-sublimity”. I purposely did not overdub the song in high quality, so that people can’t use my video to rip the song from, because YouTube seems to be becoming more and more stringent.
A new soundcase will be making its way to London MCM Expo in May 2010! Here you can see the making of it, and the old one being used in October 2009. It seemed to go down so well that I just had to do it again, and not a last-minute job, this time. ;)
The soundcase is basically music on wheels. Except that this time, you can also sing karaoke on it, and there are lights (although you probably won’t be able to see them much during the day, unfortunately… wish I’d made it last October, when it gets dark early :/ ).
Also, yes, I haven’t put any pictures on the suitcase yet (in this video), but I couldn’t really leave it until much closer to MCM before uploading the video.
We were walking away with some hardstyle blasting from a “sound suitcase” we’d made and used throughout the day, when a group of people started showing off some cool stunts to it.
This was at just gone 6 PM, after the first day of London MCM Expo, on Saturday the 25th of October 2009, just outside the ExCel building.
Here are all the Caramelldansens which Dnstje and I recorded at MCM Expo last weekend, combined into one video! =D
Thanks very much to Dnstje for editing them all together, and even making dual-views for the parts where we were both recording at the same time!
Eye was the strongest, who also carried around around a “soundcase” (sound suitcase) which Dnstje helped me to make. It was playing the music most of the times in this video.
I’ve been lucky enough to be able to travel to the Netherlands to attend Abunai, a convention to do with anime, manga and other Japanese stuff. The con lasted 3 days (Friday to Sunday), and we had to camp at a nearby place and travel between there and the convention site each day, using bikes we’d rented from the camp site.
So… for now, photos! Click any photo to see the full-size version. Here are a few which I took…
…and here are a lot more which a friend of mine took (including a few of mine, since he wanted to fill up his PhotoBucket account):
