One Week BUTAOTOME 146: no more lives with Paprika (oh, and new TC layout!)

Tiramisu Cowboy just got a new look! It was something I planned as part of the fifth-anniversary celebration. However, while I was fixing some pages, I was particularly unhappy with the layout, and I decided it was time. I hope you enjoy it! I and the Crew are currently trying to fix some bugs, so wait warmly. BUTAOTOME members have… Read more »

Happy birthday to Comp! (2020)

Add Ranko’s wonderful voice into the mix and you have a plethora of amazing tracks, a lot of my favorite songs and Touhou arranges of all time.I wish… Read more »

One Week BUTAOTOME 144: ContentID things and new Cannonball update

First of all, please read this post about the Youtube ContentID on Touhou songs. Try to spread it, if possible.

One of the most fun things with Touhou songs is that you can do pretty much anything you want with the same theme, and have fun doing different things with each one of ZUN (and Uni Akiyama)’s compositions. And over the years, BUTAOTOME managed to make arrangements of 90% of the Touhou themes. There are some themes the Pig never… Read more »

One Week BUTAOTOME 143: let’s not talk about titles.

No seriously. Let’s not talk about them. I have the introduction of a new series ready to be published, but I’m only missing a cool sounding title. Anyway, not a lot of news today… I already wrote most of the stuff in this update, so go read it! Comp was at Reitaisai’s livestream last weekend. He talked about the new… Read more »
