Lost Vlog 08 – Happy Belated 4-Year YouTube Anniversary (Alternate Take)

If you can’t see the video above, click here.

This vlog was originally suppose to be Vlog 33, but I decided to rerecord it because I wanted to do a shorter take. However, I was able to par down the dialog and thankfully I did because I talk about some stuff here that I forgot to say in Vlog 33.

One of the things I forgot to mention was that Chrome Sparks has its own Soundclick account! It just has the 5 Riff Ideas for now (I haven’t officially recorded Riff Ideas #6 or #7 yet, aside from Lost Vlog 07), but I’ll be recording some new material when I get new equipment in San Diego.

Unbeknownst to me at the time, Vlog 32 was actually released on my 4-year YouTube Anniversary and I forgot to talk about it!

I still can’t believe that it’s been four years since I signed up for YouTube! A lot has changed in that time, and I hope that the quality of my videos has gone up along with the times.

When I go to A-school in San Diego, I plan on getting an HD camcorder so that you guys can see me in HD as well as the surrounding areas. As I’ve said before, I’m also planning on continuing to vlog while I’m in the Navy as much as I can and hopefully let you guys in on the scenery.

Well, it’s been fun looking back on these past four years. Here’s to many more!

Unbeknownst to me, Vlog 32 was released on my 4-year YouTube Anniversary and I forgot to talk about it! Whoops!

I can’t believe that it’s been four years since I signed up for YouTube! A lot has changed in that time, and I hope that the quality of my videos has gone up with the times.

In the near future, I plan on getting an HD camcorder so that you guys can see me in HD as well as the surrounding areas. I’m also planning on continuing to vlog while I’m in the Navy and in Japan as much as I can and hopefully let you guys in on the scenery.

Well, it’s been fun looking back on these past four years. Here’s to many more!

Eriopolis' Medley Take 1 & 2

This was the first and second time Eriopolis is seen in an online video, but his voice was first heard on Ben’s Karate Pwnage. C’mon Ben, kick his…

I remember when Eriopolis and I decided to do this, back in the good ol’ UU days before things went pear-shaped for me. We were fairly tipsy from drinking Sparks (keep in mind that this was when it still had all that taurine & caffeinated goodness) and went out for a midnight stroll to Hazard Hall’s lobby area, where several Chinese exchange students were hanging out and speaking Mandarin in the background. Having discovered the piano there a couple months prior, I had been plunking around on it beforehand just for kicks.

That night, I had Eriopolis bring his camera to record me playing a little ditty so I could put it on YouTube. After he recorded the video, I showed him a little bit of how to play Happy Material and recorded him trying to play it. Now keep in mind, we were both a little drunk so our playing skills weren’t the best. Despite that, we had fun and our fun was immortallized in video form!

Here’s the description of the original video:

Sup guys, it’s the Andy-San here. This video is of my friend Eriopolis playing Happy Material from Negima. Note that he’s quite drunk off of Sparks in this so be gentle. See-ya!

TheAndySan's Medley Take 1

This was my official online video debut. Can you believe that it’s been two years since this was recorded? Yeah, me neither.

I remember when Eriopolis and I decided to do this, back in the good ol’ UU days before things went pear-shaped for me. We were fairly tipsy from drinking Sparks (keep in mind that this was when it still had all that taurine & caffeinated goodness) and went out for a midnight stroll to Hazard Hall’s lobby area, which apparently is an Asian hotspot for the Chinese exchange students who were speaking Mandarin in the background I believe. Not to sound racist, but they didn’t sound like Bruce Lee so it probably wasn’t Cantonese, which is what he spoke. Having discovered the piano there a couple months prior, I had been plunking around on it beforehand just for kicks.

That night, I had Eriopolis bring his camera to record me playing a little ditty so I could put it on YouTube. After he recorded this video, I showed him a little bit of what I did and proceeded to record him trying to play it. Now keep in mind, we were both a little drunk so our playing skills weren’t the best. Despite that, we had fun and our fun was immortallized in this little video!

Here’s the description of the original video:

Hey guys it’s TheAndySan here playing a medley of Happy Material from Negima, a riff from CastleVania Symphony of the Night, some riff I’m experimenting with, and the Final Fantasy victory fanfare.

Note that I’m quite drunk off of Sparks in this so be gentle. Peace!

Gettin' Drunk 'n Fuckin' Bitches!

How’s it going, it’s the Andy-San here after one long-ass day.

To celebrate Eriopolis’ 21st birthday, we went to Quaker Steak & Lube. I rode with the Shizzon and got lost because of Eriopolis’ directions being out of order. When we got to the place, everyone ordered wings because it was Endless Wings Tuesday. Shizzon and I didn’t get the memo so we ordered Philly burgers with fries. The fries were great, but the burger was quite sub-par. I was very disappointed. After I was about halfway through my burger, Shizzon noticed the big ass sign for the endless wings. We both were like, “son of a bitch!” Cody tried the Atomic Wings and said they tasted terrible and weren’t even that hot. Eriopolis had a good time though. He had a shit-ton to drink there.

When we got back to UU, I got him some Sparks Plus as well as some Sparks for myself. I also had some Smirnoff Green Apple and it was dee-lish (wow, that didn’t sound gay at all lol). We ended up doing some hilarious drunken st00f and went to bed around 4am. I got up around 7am because Tylor’s phone wouldn’t stop going off. I then drove back home, stayed up for a bit, and went back to sleep before going to work. Whew!

In other news, my first lesson with Rich went well. It was a bit boring since we went over some beginner guitar stuff like open chords and reading notes. I played “Jane” by Jefferson Starship while he was getting my lesson book and before the end of the lesson, I played “Still Got The Blues” by Gary Moore. I’m looking forward to my next lesson!!

While I was working today, I came up with a new idea for a manga series. I wrote down a skeletal outline of the first episode and it’s not too shabby if I do say so myself. I also wrote down some of my short-term financial goals, which tie into this blog. I recently found out that WordPress offers hosting your own domain for $15 a month. I don’t know all the nitty-gritty details, but it’s definitely worth looking into.

Well, I’m gonna go. I get paid today so I’ll be able to put some money away for my new computer so yay. Oyasumi!
