Hiya Guys! Welcome to Ryuchu's Random Rants (a.k.a. RRR). This is a place where quite literally I'll rant about anything I feel need ranting about. My life, anime, video games, books...etc.

Since this will be full of all my personal opinions, It'll most likely contain spoilers at one time or another, so I guess if there are spoilers...I'll put a warning in the title of the post! (I really wouldn't want to black out a whole post with that black line thingy...that would be weird) ^-^

So Aywho (I LOVE THAT WORD!), enjoy your time here at RRR and welcome yourself to the secret workings of an insane person!

"I looked at my right hand, the hand with which I painted. There was power in that hand. Power to create and destroy. Power to bring pleasure and pain. Power to amuse and to horrify. There was in that hand the demonic and the divine. The demonic and the divine were two aspects of the same force. Creation was demonic and divine. Creativity was demonic and divine. Art was demonic and divine." --Chaim Potoko, "My Name is Asher Lev"


Hey there guys! I'm in an actually kinda good mood today (that I hope will last for quite awhile). Would you like to know why? I'm going to tell you even if you don't want to, so ha! ^^

1. It's Skinny (A.K.A. Thanksgiving) break! That means sleeping in, eating tons of food, hanging with friends, ACTUALLY having time to myself to draw, watch anime, or play videogames(wonderful~) and having time to comment and look at my friends artwork! :D (and I get to go on a baking spree with no one caring because it's food that will actually be eaten)

2.We got our parts for Madrigals and I only have to say like two lines (kinda sad, wish I had gotten more but oh well ^^) and I get to wear this pretty blue and purple dress, which I might post a picture of...maybe

3. My stupid legs which have been itching endlessly for like the past two months have FINALLY stopped itching after lots and lots of lotion

4. My voice will actually have time to recover before I go and assult it again with crazy "two-weeks-of choir-hell" that's waiting for me after break; but let's not think of that~~~

5. They have the english demo of Ace Attorney: Investigations out and I played it, loved it and am waiting for the Edgeworthy GOODNESS to come out in GOSH...DARN...FEBRUARY!!!!! GRRRRRrrr....

So, that's what's managing to make me smile...yup...if you can't tell I smile pretty easily XD;

...I don't have much else to say except that I hope I get around to actually posting some art in this break time and that I can actually talk with you guys/comment on your artwork. If you're bored (or just want to talk to me because I'm so GOSH DARN AWESOME! weird and random) PM me or somethin.

Kay, talk to everyone later and I hope you have a happy Skinny if I don't talk to you before Thursday! ^^



...title will make sense to about all of 2 peoples! :D

Hi there guys! I feel like I haven't visited/talked with you guys in forever! (most likely because I haven't...bad Ryu...being neglectful of your friends!)

So anywho, life has been pretty busy recently...most of it involoves the insanity that is choir and college and in some cases the two of them combined, oh joy! *insert sarcasm here*

Anyways, I'm really really really really really (this could go on for awhile so I'll stop here) nervous about an audition that I have coming up in January. It's to see if I can get into Illinois State University so that I can study music therapy. I have to have 2 pieces memorized, one in English and another in either Latin,German,French or Italian (just take a wild guess which language I want to sing my foreign piece in~). But you know, it's not really important...it only decides the college that I could get into to persue a future career that I may possibly have for the rest of my life...no pressure.

In other news, I have Monday and Tuesday off this week, so I might lurk around on the computer (or go play Persona 4 or Muramasa since I've been addicted to those two lately~ :3), talk to me if you're bored and have nothing better to do!

And in more other news, we found this little blue parakeet out in our backyard the other day. He was just sittin' there freezing his feathers off, so I brought him, fed him and got him a cage. If no one claims him, my mom says I can keep him! Yays! :D

I named him Pudgey...Pudge for short :B

Bye guys~

P.S. Oh and I want to draw some couples pictures...any suggestions?

Ryu is Pondering...Pondering...

Hiya guys! This is a really random post that has absolutely no point (although not many of my post hav much of a point).

So, I'm coming up with a Fan Vocaloid, because everyone and their dog who knows about Vocaloids has come up with one, and I wanted to join in on the fun! :3

...but now I'm at a dilemma

I want to make a Vocaloid with the different voice parts (like Soprano, Alto, Tenor and Bass) but I'm not sure weather to include the guy vocal parts along with the girl all bundeled up neatly into one vocaloid, or to split up the guy and girl and make them both seprate vocaloids...hmmmmmmm...deccissions...

What do you guys think I should do? (at this point I think I'm leaning more towards splitting them, because it would be kind weird to have a girl singing a bass part...as a matter of fact, very weird)

In other news in my life...nothing much is going on. Although I'm 99% sure that my teachers are having a contest to see who can bury their students in the most homework (so far english is winning). Aaaaaand all my choirs are fun, but kinda hectic (and I'm possibly considering joining another one...).

Oh, and I'm sorry that I haven't been commenting but I haven't had much time to actually draw myself, let alone sit down and actually do something enjoyable and fun on the computer.

Well then, tell me you opinions on the whole vocaloid thing. M'kay, that's all for now, buhbye!

P.S. Ferdie-chan, I hope you have (or had depending on when you read this) fun at your U2 concert :3

Choir News in The Life of Ryu

Why, hello there! It's been awhile since I've really talked to you guys...how have you been? :3

School has been hectically fun so far. Anatomy is alot of vocabulary memorization (I have slight pain in my lumbar region today, by the way), Pre-calc is okay so far...I haven't been killed or killed anyone yet, so it's a good sign and in English we watched Monty Python, so there ya go!

Oh yeah, and in choir news, I'm now not in 1 chior, not 2, not even 3! BUT 5 CHOIRS!

Yup, 4 of those choirs are school chiors and the last one is my church choir. I'm really happy about the choirs in school because one is a madrigal choir (which is like the renisance erra) and we get to dress up in big flowy dresses and sing a bunch of a capella music. It shall be rather fuuuuuun~ :3

Although, after all that singing I am most defiently going to kill my poor voice *pity pat for my voice*

So yup...nothin else interesting is happening in my life. Anything fun going on with you guys? (I feel like I haven't talked to you all in forever!)

Alrighty then, over and out!

My Schedule~

Yay! I finally managed to get my grubby paws on my schedule for this year ('cause my school is lame and dosn't send out schedules till like the last moment possible DX)...I'm posting the name of my teachers for the benefit of my friends that are wondering if I'm in a class with them ^^

1st - Anatomy Honors (Burgwald)
2nd - Sports Medicine (Boryca)
3rd - Concert Chior (Hawkins) (Who'da thunk it? XD)
4th - Lunch
5th - AP English 12 (Brook)
6th - Treble Chior (Hawkins) (I think I might just know who this teacher is :3)
7th - Pre Calculus (Stumphauzer)

Yup, there ya go! :3
You may notice an apparent lack of German in this schedule...that's because my school is STUPID and wouldn't let me take it...so I took 2 chiors instead XD.

And I ish scared of Pre Calc...I suuuuuck big time at math. Hopefully I woun't get a C on that final like it did on my final for second semester of Honors Algebra 2. And I don't think I'll like having anatomy first thing...then on the days when we have to disect the cat (yes, I will have to dissect a cat to complete that class...I'm sorry kitty! ;~;) I'll smell like fermaldahyde all day...oh well ^^
