nothing stands out to me and I don't go

00:29

out of my way to listen to it if anyone

00:31

out there is like me you understand the

00:33

pain of when a conversation starts

00:36

turning towards the topic of music you

00:40

helpless to stop it there's nothing you

00:41

01:05

damn that's that's crazy

01:09

yeah and after that conversational

01:11

stumbling the person starts talking

01:13

about the music they like and you have

01:15

to stand there and take it oh that

01:17

sounds cool I should give it a listen

01:18

you're just lying through your teeth not

01:20

being convinced in the slightest and

01:22

will immediately forget every piece of

01:24

information they tried to feed you even

01:25

if I wanted to look it up later my brain

01:28

goes get this out of here immed

01:29

immediately we've got to make room for

01:31

the 4-Hour long video essay about Freddy

01:33

Fazbear basically I don't connect to

01:35

music the way the majority of people do

01:38

and no one including me is happy about

01:40

it look I've tried to contribute in my

01:42

own way but no one else listens to the

01:44

Mario Kart cheeseland theme in their

01:46

free time it's good No One Believes Me

01:48

Now on a completely unrelated note a

01:50

while ago I wanted to get into a hobby

01:52

that was fun and active at the same time

01:55

because I do not move if not incentivize

01:57

to and that's not good i' like like to

02:00

still be fully functional at the age of

02:01

30 so after a bit of soul searching and

02:04

digging around in the old ideas jar I

02:06

decided to try out DDR I got a Dance Pad

02:09

downloaded some fun video game songs and

02:11

Anime intros to Dance Dance Revolution 2

02:13

and I got really into it it was the most

02:16

active I've been since high school I was

02:18

doing cardio for hours on end who am I

02:21

after playing my batch of custom songs

02:23

for a few months I decided to download

02:25

some more stuff and that's when I

02:26

casually thought to myself I wonder if

02:29

there's any good Vocaloid charts now to

02:31

start a completely new tangent again

02:33

Vocaloid is a voice synthesizer program

02:36

yada yada yada basically it's robot

02:38

voices you can control to write songs

02:40

and there's different characters based

02:41

on what voice you use the most common

02:43

example you know her you lover her is

02:46

hatsun Miku yep strap in folks we're

02:49

finally talking about hatsun Miku my

02:51

beloved my history with hatsun Miku is a

02:54

bit all over the place I first got

02:56

really into her in high school I don't

02:58

remember exactly how but I I probably

03:00

just stumbled on to some of her popular

03:01

songs while browsing YouTube one day

03:03

either way I was obsessed and that was

03:05

the first instance of me actually

03:07

listening to music which as you know was

03:10

groundbreaking I loved hatsu Miku so

03:13

much that in my senior year of English

03:15

class the teacher told us to write a

03:17

PowerPoint presentation about anything

03:18

we wanted most kids talked about like

03:21

ending racism or recycling or something

03:23

like that but I decided my presentation

03:26

was going to be about our girl hatsu

03:28

Miku you know just as morally important

03:31

as ending racism and preventing global

03:33

warming of course I disguised it as a

03:35

presentation about our hologram

03:37

concert's going to be the future of live

03:38

music but it was really just an excuse

03:40

to gush about meiku because I

03:42

desperately needed that outlet I was a

03:44

lonely child honestly I'm not even sure

03:46

how I mustered up the courage to do that

03:48

presentation in the first place because

03:50

as the shy art girl who never talked to

03:52

or hung out with anyone it was a bold

03:54

choice for me to talk about something

03:56

considered so strange and nerdy at the

03:58

time I started my presentation and

04:00

immediately was like oh my God what the

04:02

hell am I doing talking about a

04:04

holographic Japanese pop icon in front

04:06

of my Normy ass classmates I regret

04:08

every moment I didn't stop myself from

04:10

getting right here after playing miku's

04:12

viral World Is Mine performance for the

04:14

class one of the like popular girls was

04:17

like that was cool can we watch another

04:20

and I thought she was making fun of me

04:21

so I just sat back down as much as I

04:23

loved Miku back then my anxiety got the

04:26

better of me and I slowly drifted away

04:28

from her because I didn't want to feel

04:29

like a social outcast it's a doggy dog

04:32

world when you're a teenager and you

04:33

know it we were all just trying to

04:35

survive out there I'm sorry Miku I was

04:37

weak fast forward to current Jaden I've

04:39

grown up a bit and more sure of myself

04:42

learned some life lessons am not

04:44

surrounded by self-conscious teenagers

04:45

24/7 I'm now sitting here in front of my

04:48

computer screen with a choice should I

04:50

choose to yet again repress myself from

04:53

pursuing a niche and uncommon interest

04:55

because of self-conscious fears or am I

04:58

going to choose self-healing and growth

05:00

and allow myself to fully re-explore the

05:03

world of a Japanese virtual pop star to

05:05

play

05:07

ddr2 crank up that meiku I started

05:10

downloading songs I listened to years

05:12

ago found some new ones I was exploring

05:15

and already getting more and more into

05:16

the music I chose to leave behind out of

05:19

fear years ago I was flourishing and

05:21

that's how it began I didn't know it

05:23

back then but this was the first step of

05:26

a hyper fixation like no other I've

05:28

experienced hatsun Miku was showing me

05:31

the ways of truly enjoying music I was

05:34

playing her whenever I was in the car

05:36

consistently looking up new songs and

05:38

artists to add to my playlist even

05:40

listening to her while I work or play

05:42

video games which I pretty much never

05:44

did my world was changing and it was all

05:48

hers this wasn't just the music either

05:50

it was straight up about hatsu Miku I've

05:53

never been a figure collector but I

05:54

started buying so many Miku figures I

05:57

had to get a custom shelf in my office

05:59

just to display them all dude it's such

06:01

a double-edged sword to be into Miku

06:03

because the fan base is constantly being

06:05

fed new Miku this new Miku that gorgeous

06:08

figures are coming out like every month

06:10

what am I supposed to do not buy them

06:13

every house needs to have at least one

06:15

Miku that's a funu rule also a huge

06:18

oversight on my part when I got my Miku

06:20

shelf installed I wanted it above my

06:22

computer it turned out great and

06:24

displays them really well but when I'm

06:26

actually sitting at my desk and want to

06:28

look up and admire my figures all I see

06:30

is accidental upskirt shots and I feel

06:33

so bad I'm sorry M I'm not trying to

06:36

disrespect you I promise it was a

06:38

miscalculation on my part so whenever

06:40

I'm at my desk I just don't look up as

06:43

most of you probably know Pokemon

06:45

invited Jacob and me to Japan to attend

06:47

the PokΓ©mon World Championships back in

06:49

August that was super fun and the video

06:50

of that trip should be up by now if I

06:52

planned things correctly if not then

06:55

oops but worlds also just so happen to

06:57

overlap with magical m guy also known as

07:01

one of the biggest hotsun Miku Expos and

07:04

concerts

07:06

[Music]

07:08

ever we had to go since getting super

07:11

into Miku it became one of my biggest

07:13

dreams to see her live in concert who

07:15

knows if we'd ever get this perfect of

07:17

an opportunity again what if she invites

07:19

me backstage and we became friends I

07:21

immediately tried to get tickets but

07:23

couldn't figure out how the Japanese

07:25

ticket system worked so Emily ended up

07:27

having to help me out she was also the

07:29

one who told me about the concert in the

07:30

first place so thank you Emily my hero

07:33

My Savior we got tickets but not

07:36

07:38

way Japan does most of their online

07:40

ticket systems is through a gotcha yeah

07:44

random Lottery no matter how much money

07:47

I was willing to hypothetically spend to

07:51

we were all just like those little

07:53

numbered balls in that Bingo spinner

07:55

thing months pass as I eagerly await Our

Fate then then the email pops up in my

08:01

08:19

smiled back for the first time something

08:21

smelled like toast you have no idea how

08:24

excited I was I don't even understand

08:26

why I love hotsun Miku as much as I do

08:28

but she has become one of the pillars of

08:31

my being let's jump to the day of the

08:32

concert Jacob and I are in Japan and are

08:34

just about to arrive at the convention

08:36

center I remember looking out the window

08:38

of the taxi getting so excited to see

08:40

people wearing their Miku shirts and

08:43

kimonos and they had meiku bags I felt

08:45

like I was finally around my people we

08:48

get there walk into the convention

08:50

center and a blast of Hsu Nam Miku hits

08:53

us giant Miku statues and posters booths

08:57

08:59

everyone dressed head to toe in Miku

09:01

clothes I saw people with hotsun Miku

09:04

suitcases to hold all the Miku things

09:06

they were buying I immediately wanted to

09:08

run around and look at everything all at

09:10

once there were multiple times where

09:11

Jacob lost me because I just started

09:14

walking off in different directions like

09:15

a meiku moth we spent a few hours

09:17

looking around and buying things we

09:19

spent a lot of money but eventually we

09:21

started getting ready for the live

09:22

concert I was giddy with excitement at

09:25

this point she was going to be right in

09:26

front of me we found our seats and dude

09:29

we were pretty damn close to the stage

09:32

especially for randomly selected seats I

09:34

couldn't believe how close we were going

09:36

to be to hotsun Miku I already knew

09:38

going into it I was going to cry frame

09:40

one if you didn't know it's pretty

09:41

standard to have special Miku glow

09:44

sticks you can shake to the beat of

09:45

whichever song is playing you can even

09:47

switch them to the coordinated color of

09:49

whichever Vocaloid was on stage at the

09:51

time I've only learned about it from

thus far and I got to say it was so fun

09:58

to see people before the show warming up

10:01

their arms and practicing their glow

10:03

stick moves they really take hatsun Miku

10:06

seriously and I respect it so much some

10:08

people were even quadruple wielding glow

10:10

sticks the record I personally saw was

10:12

six like some sort of Miku Wolverine it

10:15

was a huge bummer though because Jacob

10:17

and I tried to buy some sticks of our

10:19

own at the expo hall but they were

10:21

already sold out so we didn't have any

10:24

and it was kind of embarrassing soon

10:26

enough the Miku songs The Venue was

10:28

playing started getting louder and the

10:30

house lights dimmed and man seeing the

10:33

lights turned down and the teal glow of

10:36

all the sticks emanating together to

10:38

light up the room

10:41

honestly it it made me tear up I don't

10:43

even think I realized how much I loved

10:46

hatsu Miku until that moment being

10:49

completely surrounded by people who love

10:52

her just as much and more than I do this

10:55

is what it's like to be into music isn't

10:57

it to experience these moments being

10:59

completely engulfed in a community all

11:01

connected by a single art I get it now

11:05

it's beautiful the room glowed Miku blue

11:08

and everyone was cheering and shaking

11:10

their glow sticks anticipating her

11:12

appearance all the Vocaloids were

11:14

introduced one by one with text on the

11:16

Hologram screen moo Luca Kao kagina Ren

11:21

and Len and then KSU Miku the crowd went

11:26

ballistic I could already feel myself

11:28

holding back tears a little digital poof

11:31

explosion goes off and there she was

11:34

right in front of

11:36

us she started singing and Jacob and I

11:39

were cheering and bouncing with the rest

11:41

of the crowd by the time she got a

11:42

couple songs in Jacob and I were

11:44

definitely feeling left out for not

11:46

having the glow sticks to shake so we

11:48

pulled out our Miku plushes to use in

11:50

place of them and that felt much better

11:52

by the end of the concert Jacob was even

11:54

dual wielding Miku after a few songs

11:56

Miku disappeared and the other Vocaloids

11:58

played some some of their songs I

12:00

honestly don't know them as well so I

12:02

wasn't too familiar with most of the

12:04

songs they all played but I was having a

12:06

great time nonetheless it was nice to

12:08

not be fighting tears the whole time

12:10

anymore as well then Miku came back and

12:12

I the concert continued on and we

12:14

learned some real nice glow stick moves

12:17

replaced with our Miku plushes of course

12:19

there's the classic arm cheer onbeat the

12:21

onbeat offbeat the building cheer on to

12:24

beat even throw in the advanced building

12:26

cheer on to double beat with a height

12:28

I'll say it doing all those glow stick

12:30

movements was honestly a really crazy

12:32

arm workout like we were working biceps

12:35

and shoulders for 2 hours straight

12:37

imagine beat saber but higher up in the

12:39

posture with almost no breaks and if you

12:41

don't commit then hatsun Miku thinks you

12:44

hate her I wanted to mention that in

12:46

Vocaloid concerts obviously they have a

12:48

recording of the vocals because you know

12:51

but all the other instruments were

12:53

absolutely real there was a live band

12:55

playing all the songs for the entire set

12:57

in the middle of the concert there was

12:59

was even a nice little appreciation

13:01

moment showcasing all the band members

13:02

by name accompanied by a little solo

13:05

they got to play I'm a big bass fan and

13:07

would love to learn how to play it one

13:08

day and I know bass players get super

13:11

neglected because everyone wants to

13:13

watch the cool guitar players so I gave

13:15

extra attention to the meiku bass player

13:17

they definitely noticed me cheering for

13:19

them probably because I could tell

13:21

everyone was watching the guitar players

13:23

and I was the only one actually looking

13:26

at them and the bass player smiled super

13:28

wide and raised his Bas to me and I just

13:30

thought that was a nice moment

13:31

appreciate your bass players guys they

13:33

need it anyway the concert went on there

13:35

were awesome lasers and sparklers fun

13:38

costume changes from all the Vocaloids

13:40

great set list shout out to the guy in

13:42

front of us that was there with his

13:43

girlfriend and definitely more excited

13:46

to be there than she was finally it came

13:48

to the Encore we had to convince Miku to

13:51

play one more song you know how at least

13:54

in America people are cheering and

13:56

screaming for an encore well Japan is

13:59

like so quiet and polite they were

14:01

saying it like a suggestion it was so

14:04

quiet kind of just a long session of

14:06

Applause with a whisper of meiku meiku

14:11

like if I were hoton a meiku I would

14:13

have questioned if they even wanted the

14:14

Encore in the first place also we were

14:16

asking for The Encore for like 5 minutes

14:19

straight I was fully convinced she had

14:21

left the building but she came out for

14:23

her last song it was a blast she was in

14:26

her magical mid eye outfit for the year

14:28

and it was over I've only gone to one

14:32

other concert in my entire life and it

14:34

was because a friend in college had an

14:36

extra ticket and invited me along I

14:38

didn't even know the band at the time it

14:39

was some random group called Fallout Boy

14:42

or something but I could have been to a

14:44

thousand concerts and still say this was

14:47

the best one I've ever been to I loved

14:50

the energy I loved how passionate and

14:52

excited everyone was to be there and I

14:55

loved hoto Nam Miku and still do I want

14:58

to go to so many more of her concerts it

15:00

was a great event for me and I want to

15:03

relive it again and again you might

15:05

think it's weird or you don't get it

15:07

it's just a hologram robot girl right

15:09

that's totally fine if you can't find it

15:11

in Vocaloid I hope everyone has the

15:14

opportunity to connect with or find a

15:16

community to enjoy like I have with

15:18

hatsu Miku because moments like that

15:21

concert are so incredible and I feel so
