I knew that Pekora wouldn't abandon Don-Chan without a fight and i was missing something. Thanks.

Pekora killed Ollie again and just before Christmas too! She can't keep getting away with it!


Petra Gurin, cute as a button but mess with her and get dunked on. Luxiem take note. lol.




Mario Kart trending in the UK partially because of the upcoming NijiEN MK Tournament and the UK must love Petra.

Vans/Converse need to get in touch with Cover and get a variant of those shoes out there. If i were a girl, i'd be all over 'em.
I say Vans/Converse because they look closest to the stuff they do but anyone making canvas boots needs to get in there quick.
Make a lot of people happy. I wonder how many Cosplayers are already sourcing materials? lol.

I forget what brand the classic canvas shoe/boot in the UK was called. Wasn't Vans/Converse tho.

Thanks, i updated the Niji-En LoL collab with Elira's VOD.


Gura is running a Meme Review today/tomorrow? Stupid Timezones.


I noticed Miko has been running AsaMiko News too. Gradually the girls are taking up Kaichou's legacies and bringing them along with them on this journey. It's good to see.

I made it. I managed the whole 16 hour flight to Ligma City, Wonderland on Non Airlines. It was an experience. Definitely.
Non said she'll put up a playlist of all the videos and tabs she had running during the stream.
I also got comments read out but to be fair Non was reading and interacting with chat A LOT but i did get mentioned which was nice.

edit: I pulled out the names of the tabs Non was initially playing at the start of the "flight", they were at different volumes and you could hear them but also her voice was coming through over the top of them very clearly. I'll update them when Non publishes the playlist if she remembers or if someone on PRISMcord puts up a list. Anyway...

Big Holo all EN Xmas VR collab in a few hours. Apparently Ame has been working really hard again behind the scenes.

Kiara seems the only one with her POV in frame so far.

Can i just reiterate how great i think Pina from PRISM Project is? She's amazing and one of the VTubers i am happiest to have found and followed.
Here she is trying to teach us tone-deaf Penpals how to sing harmony. Good luck with that, Pina!



PRISM Project is really underrated and one of the agencies where each member is distinctly different from the others but they all gel together so well when they collab. The community is pretty damned great as well. Small but comfy and in a crowded space one of the teams i'd like to see do well and continue rising.

Here's Pina's cover released as one of the winners of her "ABC of Anime Songs".

I am completely sold on Vox Akuma. He's so smooth. 🥵

Chat is a bit thirsty and bonkers lol, but that's all right. He plays along with it well.
============

Oh and here is a new Okayu cover. She always said her voice was too deep for singing but I'm glad she warmed up to it in the end. Her voice is unique in all the best ways.

In the new round of Game Pass promo streams.



Miko's stream should be interesting if her Asseto Corsa stream was any indication. :flare_lmao:

I haven't watched any of the Luxiem streams yet or debut beyond their debut trailer and song. lol
Far too much going on with other people i follow like PRISM, Phase Connect, Reiny, indies and Holo in the run up to christmas so i haven't seen much of Niji at all. I've barely watched any Gen 6 Secret Society outside of a couple of clips either.

Hopefully Microsoft sort out the FH5 online issues by the time Miko streams or it won't be a good look for them. I haven't played for over a week but it was still plagued with server issues and sync problems last time i checked.

Someone need to tell Flare that Ori is tricky at times and not as easy as it's fluffy lovely look suggests.

Calli caught her shiny Giratina after 1680 attempts, and today's stream was kind of a chill extended podcast with Sana who was also trying to catch a shiny. It lasted 11 hours; breaking the record for longest EN collab

I've had it on in the background while i'm WfH, it's been great. Sana said Calli is the senpai she's spent the most time with all from one day of Pokemon streams. I wasn't sure as i hadn't read any blreb but i figured they'd meet up when i saw they were both chasing shiny pokemon. It's been great background content. I did take part in the smiley wave when Sana went to an Idol Meeting leaving her avatar staring off into the distance smiling. lol.

Anya has postponed her stream until MoonaUtau Hololive Song stream has finished and Moona just treated us to a great rendition of Ahoy and was thoroughly embarassed lol. She's got a great low register, now singing Palette by Towa.

Moona's rebroadcast of her earlier Unarchived Karaoke has turned into a duet karaoke as she's singing alongside it and it's awesome.
I just hope my yt-dl is working.

PRISM Project Snowman competition is just as Seiso/Seison't as i expected. Love 'em.


TakoTori collab out tomorrow night! Followed by an after party chat and drawing stream.

After a long time away from regular streams due to working on her music AZKi has returned with a new christmas outfit and a singing stream later this morning - 11am GMT!


Her latest collab with WataruSena is also out now on many streaming services - 3 vocal tracks and 3 instrumental versions.



Teaser for the 3 track release...


Looks like Cover have a Hololive Tree up in Akihabara for the next 3 days with a light show.
They have a livestream of the tree and some music. I missed the first "show" so i don't know what it is tbh.
[Installation location] Akihabara UDX Akiba Plaza (4-14-1 Sotokanda, Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo 101-0021)
[Installation period] December 23rd (Thursday) to 25th (Saturday), 2021
[Lighting time] 12: 00 ~ 24: 00
[Light production] 17: 00 ~ 20: 30 (conducted every 30 minutes)
* Excluding 25th *
It may be changed or canceled due to various reasons.
* Please refrain from making inquiries to the facility regarding this matter.
6.2k watching at the moment. At the very least it's a hololive music stream people have playing in the background for the next few days.
edit:
I've seen the light! lol.
The tree goes dim and lights up in beat to the song. Just a little fun thing.

Kanauru made this for Kiara in 2 days after she saw the Mean Girls clip and asked if they were up for a KFP version.



Reiny's unarchived Christmas Karaoke is amazing. I'm waiting for Sumi to start her unarchived Karaoke in a while.
I feel a bit bleh after my booster yesterday so sitting here browsing Steam/GoG/etc listening to all these streams with a cup of coffee and some cake is awesome and comfy.

ExistentialThought I'll check later but do you know how many resets she went through/how long it took? I know Fubuki has been at this for a LONG TIME! lol.
Just in time for Christmas, we now have a very happy fox.
Per the latest counts around 13,000 attempts. Her in-game hours was around 220hrs if I recall. She has been at it for 27 days/streams. She did make the comment it was like a present haha given it is the 24th in Japan

Yeah came to post the Fubuki news also. 221 hours lol. 😓
That is quite some dedication.

uhm i don't really have anything to add. But rather something I feel I can't keep to myself lol. The other day I was just sitting around listening to VoD's of Kronii, i think I was just grinding stuff in FF.

But i think it was her Night Delivery stream. She mentioned wanting to try catfood, saying some of the flavors interested her. She also tried to yeet a baby from the 4th floor balcony. Kronii is not a Momeronii.

I'll have to convert that list to GMT and see if i can set-up a bunch of yt-dlp commands to grab 'em as they pop up as they're probably unarchived. Are they?
Oh hopefully they will appear on the schedules page! I'll repost the three that i have as they may be handy for people over the holidays.

Hololive EN/ID/JP - In the sidebar set language for the interface to whatever and set timezone to where you are or you'll miss everything lol.

PRISM Project

Nijisanji - it's jp language UI and is bedlam at times due to the sheer number of Livers they have but it might help.

If anyone has a scheduler for any other agencies like VOMS, Phase Connect, Tsunderia then post 'em here too!

edit: According to savvytime the Christmas Karaoke Relay starts at 6am GMT on 2021/12/25

HoloID Rewind 2021 in 20 mins


I need to check twitter to see if Pina is okay today. She did a squats for subs stream yesterday but chat had persuaded her to also include donations and she ended up doing an extra 267 squats/push ups/sit ups due to the regular chat madlads with money giving her a bunch of crazy holiday akasupas on Streamlabs so Susan won't take a cut.

Pina is planning a Knitsudan "Chatting while knitting" stream today and because we thought it might be fun ( and we wanted to see the Scarf ) she's planning on having a hand-cam, wearing gloves, so we can see the scarf she's working on. Hopefully she's still up for it after yesterdays exertion.

Yeah, i've got a busy day of ... oh sitting on my butt drinking, playing games and watching Youtube or blurays mainly Holo but there's a couple of PRISM streams i want to catch too. My mum is old so i don't want to risk going back home at the moment, just in case.


I've also found a REALLY handy tool called "ytarchive" which is a nice tool to have together with yt-dlp, aria2c, ffmpeg. Basically it monitors a youtube channel for live streams or a video url for the start of the program and then passes them off to ffmpeg to download. After spending time writing powershell scripts and playing with scheduled tasks i got bored and wondered if there was a simple tool that would hopefully cope with delayed streams etc.

I'm testing it with IRyS' unarchived karaoke at 2:15am and Naki's Padoru stream at 3am.

Here it is:
Pastebin - Simple ytarchive example from a Mumei follower.

I'm testing this command in a batch file and passing in a channel/live url and a video url for testing in two instances:
"%~dp0ytarchive.exe" -w -v -t %1 480p/720p/best

I may also try this python tool too:

I won't be abandoning yt-dlp as it allowed me to archive 12 hours of Non's 16 hour Crazy Frog stream of cosmic horror which is actually enough for anyone thinking about it but hopefully ytarchive will let me setup the command and go to bed if i need to.

It's 2:40am here, i'm getting over my booster so i'm super tired, i've been up late all week so i'm super tired, i'm about to add another ytarchive command to capture Kronii's karaoke and i'm going to be watching Pina's Knitsudan for some comfy chatting and i'll probably fall asleep in my chair and wake up later this morning to a random VTuber stream from my recommendations.

Happy Holidays!



edit:
Heck Yeah! YTArchive is downloading IRyS' Christmas Carol Party i told it t monitor for the start of earlier this evening.
I wonder what quality will be, i've set it to 480p because for Karaoke streams i'm more interested in the audio which is why i like yt-dlp as i can tell it to grab the 480p video but the 720p audio as it's usually better quality... i think. It's been ages since i looked so i may be wrong.

Yeah the booster shot was rough. I felt dead as... for like 3 whole days. 😓 Hopefully it goes quick and good for you!

I just caught this happening as I watched an old VoD of Nina and I just had to share this moment of comedy. ( It's Just a minute:thirty secs.)

I was going to post that the other day but kept getting distracted! Good work, it's a classic. I love Nina, i mean Mom.
We need a Calli & Nina collab.
Nina's joy and their disappointment is classic.

Thanks, today will be Day 3 after my booster and i feel much better today apart from being insanely tired because i've been up until stupid o'clock wrapped up warm watching stuff on youtube for the last few days feeling sorry for myself. So at least i won't be feeling dreadful on Christmas Day.

edit:
Can confirm that ytarchive works. It sat there waiting for IRyS' Christmas stream and recorded the whole thing. ~765mb for 1hr 40 at 854x480 with 44khz, 128kbps stereo sound. It looks and sounds great in VLC so i'm happy enough.
I just watched my other ytarchive command start Kronii's Karaoke too.
