I am so happy and honored to be having my 2nd Event at TinierMe.com! Polo (Japanese Guitarist & producer) and I made this special song for all of you! The title of the song is called "Mirai heno tobira! The song is about looking towards the new year with a positive outlook! Also I knew how much everyone liked my personal item the cat ears with pink ribbon! So I told staff we need to make those animated! They are so cute huh? THANK YOU TINIERME STAFF FOR EVERYTHING! Also thank you Polo! You are such an awesome producer! ;p I am so happy to be able to make so many awesome friends through TinierMe! Please add me as a friend if you haven't yet! You can only listen to the song over at TinierMe.com! So what you waiting for? ;p

Here are the romanji lyrics:

anohi kimi ha sora kara oritekita boku ni sotto warai kakete kita
sono sunda hitomi ni suikomaresoude boku ha sotto kimi no kao ni hureta

never end love bokura no naka ni
crazy my mind kimi mo kitto

hashiri dashita hutari no omoi itsuka kitto bokura no negai
togirenai yo ni tsuyoku te wo nigiru
kanashimi nante sokoniha naku tada gamushara ni susumi tsudukeru
mirai heno tobira ha itsumo soko ni aru


kaidan nobori inoru kimi no yokogao boku ha kimi ga ima nani negau ka nozoitemiru

togirenai yo ni tsuyoku te wo nigiru
kanashimi nante sokoniha naku tada gamushara ni susumi tsudukeru
mirai heno tobira ha itsumo soko ni aru

I went to the Luna Sea concert with TinierMe Staff!   
09:03pm 06/12/2010
  I was invited by TinierMe to go check out the very famous Japanese Visual Kei rock band Luna Sea! It was the band's first US concert! The show was awesome! And I still have the song Dejavu stuck in my head! After the show we were invited up to the VIP area by Sugizo's Agency! We saw a very famous Japanese actress Momoi Kaori (memoirs of a geisha) and Yoshiki (famous musician). I also finally met Sugizo! He was very nice and we shook hands twice! ;p Then I was able to meet the lead vocalist of Luna Sea Ryuichi Kawamura! Here is a picture of Ryuichi and I! Hopefully next time I can get a picture with Sugizo... I was too busy shaking his hand to remember to ask for a photo! Lol! Thank you TinierMe staff for the fun night and great opportunity!

Perfect Blue - In Memory of Satoshi Kon   
05:26pm 25/08/2010
 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ABf2qcwt-GM


R.I.P. Satoshi Kon (1963-2010)

In this video I am singing the song Omoide Ni Dakarete Imawa from Satoshi Kon's movie Perfect Blue! Ever since watching Perfect Blue I became a huge fan of Satoshi Kon. I am very picky in my anime and I can name off a small few talented anime directors and animators that I truly love. And Satoshi Kon was always one of my all time favorites! When I heard that he passed away I was shocked. So young! Cancer has surely taken the best people of this world.

Taken from The Salt Lake Tribune:

Satoshi Kon, a Japanese animator who took anime into gritty reality and mind-bending fantasy, died Tuesday after a battle with cancer. He was 46
.
Kon's films were brimming with originality and color. His Hitchcockian rock 'n' roll thriller "Perfect Blue" (1998) was a cult hit, as was "Millennium Actress" (2001). His Christmas comedy "Tokyo Godfathers" (2003) combined Hollywood sentiment with a colorful take on modern life in Tokyo.

Kon's masterpiece, though, was "Paprika" (2007), a trippy story in which the dream world and reality collided in an explosion of strange images. The movie's plot -- about a "dream detective" who could enter other people's dreams -- has been cited as an inspiration for this year's hit "Inception."


"With feelings of gratitude for all that is good in this world, I put down my pen.

Well, I'll be leaving now."

Satoshi Kon

Miku Hatsune makes her first official US debut on TINIERME.COM!   
08:20pm 20/07/2010
  On the same stage where I had my concert on TinierMe.com is now featuring Miku Hatsune's Concert! That means I have now shared the same stage as Miku Hatsune! Not too many people can say that huh? ;p

Photobucket
Banner from my concert where it featured my newest single "SAKURA WONDERLAND".

Photobucket
Banner from Miku Hatsune's Concert that is in Selfy Town on TinierMe.com NOW!

When TinierMe told me of the awesome collaboration that they were doing with the Vocaloids I was in awe! Especially because Vocaloids are very popular in Japan and are now making a scene for themselves in the US.

Vocaloid fans don't miss Miku Hatsune's first ever US debut and all other Vocaloid goodies at TinierMe.com!

Here is some info taken from the PDF file on TinierMe.com about Miku Hatsune:

"HATSUNE MIKU" is a computer music software that enables users to create synthesized singing of unprecedented quality and remarkable realism by
just typing in lyrics and melody. Powered by YAMAHA's VOCALOID(= Vocal + Android) technology, HATSUNE MIKU was developed by Crypton Future

Media in Sapporo, and released on August 31st, 2007. And since then, there have been more than 30,000 songs and movies about HATSUNE MIKU were posted in a popular Video sharing web site such as YouTube and Nico-Nico-Douga(Japan).

From this "music software" with cute voice and an illustration of cartoon girl on the cover, not only lots of CGM(Consumer Generated Media) music were created, but remarkable numbers of derivative illustrations and dedicated free software (including an amazing application tool to create 3D animation of HATSUNE MIKU, etc.) were also created. Then, as the recognition and popularity of HATSUNE MIKU grew, more other related activities such as launching news site and SNS site featuring MIKU or organizing events for MIKU fans are taking place.
HATSUNE MIKU is not merely a music software anymore. It's turned into a source of inspiration to create its derivative works.

With the increase of those mash-up and remix works by HATSUNE MIKU lovers, Crypton Future Media has opened "PIAPRO" as a next step. PIAPRO is a CGM contents posting site for the creators to collaborate and
exchange ideas with others. At PIAPRO, you'll be surprised to see all those talented works, but besides that,
a CCJP official character are being seeked as one of collaboration projects, and also, creators are discussing
vigorously and freely about copyright for the sake of better future goals of their works.

TinierMe Booth @ Anime Expo 2010 with Stephanie Yanez   
04:11pm 06/07/2010
  Photobucket


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vy_Wq7_wKJY



Anime Expo has so much history for me. I mean I won AX Idol in 2004 at Anime Expo. And since then I have done many fun things like recording at Paramount Studios with Geneon & I'VE, being a Tokyo Reporter for Anime Selects Comcast On Demand, and my mini tours in Japan performing at venues like Omotesando FAB!

Now I am honored to be a sponsor with TinierMe a Japanese Anime avatar gaming online site where they featured my NEW SINGLE "SAKURA WONDERLAND". The site has been growing strong in Japan and now they wanted to introduce the online site to the world. They first made their worldwide debut in October of last year. Now they have a million users!

I am on TinierMe everyday because it is a great place to interact with my fans. They told me they wanted to dress me up as my avatar which is called "Selfy" on TinierMe. And they wanted to bring me out to Anime Expo so my fans can come and spend some quality time with me at the booth!

I was there all four days. And I was sooooooooooo happy to meet everyone from old to new faces. I was so honored to have people come up to me and still talk about how I won AX Idol or how I was on the documentary Crazy Sexy Tokyo with Anime Selects! Of course I was soooooooo excited as well to meet my TinierMe friends who said they sing or listen to my song Sakura Wonderland all of the time.

Every Anime Expo I have gone to since 04 I have been involved be performing my own concert at the summer festival stage to performing the half time show at Masquerade to being called up and introduced on stage by Kotoko!

Anime Expo will always have a special place in my weird and goofy heart! Even though it has changed so much since 04 it still rocks! Thank you to everyone that came to say hi to me at the TinierMe booth! And thank you to the hard working staff of TinierMe and the sponsors of TinierMe! ANIME EXPO 2010 WAS CHO CRAZY AWESOME!

Luv,
Steph
