World is うさ

While I’m recovering my computer… here’s a little gem I stumbled upon after (finally!) signing up for niconico video.
If you already have an account, you can go to the original nico video page.
Also, if you really like this rendition, うさ (usa (oo-saw)), the singer, included an mp3 for download. The password you need is “usawine” (no quotes. there’s a text box above the download button, type the password in there). (Update: sorry, forgot there’s another page after you enter the password. On the 2nd page, scroll down and under the last banner should be a link: ＜ダウンロードする＞ – which translates to “download” – yes, click that one ^^) Alternately I think whoever uploaded the youtube version also included a megaupload link.
Probably old news for niconico goers (>750,000 views!) and miku fans alike, but I’m a slowpoke, so cut me some slack :P And for the rest of ya like me who were unaware, you should listen to it now!
Also if you haven’t gotten around to the original song, here’s it is:
If you haven’t signed up for niconico, dannychoo user tenrou wrote up a little how-to. I was going to do one of my own with screenshots and explanations of some of the parts of the site (like adding to your list, where to find the rankings, etc) but haven’t gotten around to it yet. In the meantime, check out tenrou’s instructions, it might be fun to see what the fuss is about if you’ve never experienced it.
If you can read any japanese (even just hiragana), you may be able to appreciate the insanity of the comments that float across the screen. I love ’em ^__^ teh intertubes at their finest.
For reference, here’s a handful of characters to look for:
かわいい – kawaii
すごい – sugoi
すげ – suge (== sugoi, even less formal)
ｗｗｗｗｗｗ – last time I checked, ‘w’ stands for ‘warai’ == laughing, so in this context == lol. so wwwww roughly translates to lololol ^^;;;
