New Release and Forum Monday, Jan 25 2010 

AHHH! Finally, it’s out.

The second track to Bishoujo’s first single, If you hit, ATTACK! came out today, Dakishimete Dakishimete by Berryz Koubou.

Overall I am proud of it. Congrats to our lovely cast!

Next off, after about a month of trying to find  a good Forum board hosting site, I came by one. I went through literally about 10 and one of our members finally recommended a decent board site. The Forum is not finish but you all are welcome to join  any way. We are still working on it, it’s not really close to being done. Just go ahead and join us and chat with us!

New Releases Monday, Jan 18 2010 

We have had two recent new releases! The debut of Fuantei and the first track to the first single of Bishoujo’s.
I am very proud of the way they both turned out!

SHOCK! was hard on me. After it crashed three times I felt like giving up, but it turned out pretty decently.

I am really proud of all the girls in this! We really did a great job at making SHOCK! a fair and equally coded song!

Next is Iroppoi Jirettai by Morning Musume. GOSH. THIS THING HAS BEEN AROUND FOR TWO MONTHS. I am finally glad we can get it up. It is very lovely.  Rae did an AMAZING job at mixing. NO LIE. I felt like dieing once I heard it.

One thing we both learned is we are NEVER EVER making a group this big EVER again. Unless it’s full project x.x GAH don’t remind me…

Any way, under request of at least 10 people, we are creating a forum. I haven’t found a good site to use yet, I am caught between two. I will figure one out, so you all can look forward to the new forum!

Long time, No see Monday, Jan 11 2010 

Hey guys.  Long time no blog.

IKP has been sort of dead lately. I haven’t been around to update either. We are just now getting back in and settling in from our sicknesses and our holiday travels. This is going to be a blog FULL of updates.

First of all, singles have been put on hold because of my computer. I am sure all of the members know and some others might know as well.  A little accident happened two weeks ago. Something got thrown at my screen (accidentally) and it cracked. Not just cracked but flipped out. What happened was the inside bulb or whatever exploded and it cracked on the inside shooting out some harsh type of mercury or whatever. I heard that it was cancerous to be around, and that I shouldn’t be around it. So I lost my computer. I tried fixing it myself with my computer nerd skills but it didn’t work. So I was on my own. My parent’s didn’t give a hoot since it was my fault. My father was trying to help but he told me I was old enough to handle it myself. We went to where we bought it and they told us to ship it to the manufacturer.  So while I was in town the following week, I mailed it off. The sad thing is, I am loosing my hard-drive along with this, so bye bye all my hard work. Bye bye a years worth of stories and pictures and memories. I am also loosing my ability to mix with my brand new programs downloaded for mixing.  Take a lookie at my situation:

Really blows, right? Ah it could have been worse. I have been going through a lot lately but thankfully my darling younger sister is allowing me to use her computer. I can’t mix like I used to, in fact I was really working HARD on the past singles we had planned. Before I had the chance to post I lost them all. So now all I have is audacity (not acquitted for mixing the way i’d like) and my sister’s computer. Lilac has  been nice enough to mix many things for me and that I thank her for.

But that’s just to let everyone know the situation.

Next off, I’d love to welcome new members into the project and new kaizen.
Welcome Amaranth to Generation two.
Amber, Carmine, Mint, Teal and Indigo are our lovely members of Kaizen. We are so happy to have you in the project!
The Kaizen single will come out soon, by  the way. It just depends on mixing status. Also two members will be promoted up along with the release of the Kaizen single. Good luck!

Next, our newest single was just released. It is the second mini-single for Bishoujo. Our debut single with three tracks is coming up soon by the way! The mini single was released about a week ago. Really on New Years day (but YouTube and it’s stubborn time differences insists it was on Dec 31 2009). It was mixed by the lovely Lilac again (: She really is sweet!   It’s been a while since she mixed for me. Her first time mixing something for me was a few months ago back with my old project, Midori. Man it seems forever ago!  The song was Munasawagi Scarlet by Berryz Koubou. It is BK’s 12th single.
But I would love you all to comment! I am dying to know what you think of who. We wasn’t trying to sound like Berryz Koubou at ALL but somehow we turned out being voice impersonators.

Support us by watching, ne?
Ah, that pretty much settles the updates! We have a serious of singles coming out soon! Just to let you all know.

Lastly,  I’d like to thank everyone who has been here with me through the death of my uncle, suicide of my cousin and our financial issue. It really means a lot. My father is getting better which is a great thing. I don’t want to loose another loved one. My illness of which i’ve had for four months is going away slowly. I hope to one day be well again and hopefully sing with IKP. Thank you everyone and I hope you continue to support IKP!
