You know what today is? Well, the day this gets published, anyway. It’s the day after my birthday! I’m officially way too old to ever have my imaginary idol debut! But I’m at my peak for graduation! Yay.
So how about a more personal-ish theme this week? And by personal I mean let’s refer to a TV show that pretty much defined my teenage years, some obscure 90’s show called Friends. Continue reading →
I’m clearly not the only person in the West who likes idols and also likes to write about idols and who also wishes more people would get into Wonder Lander — Passion Idol, from the francophonie, is right there with me. Yeah, it’s in French, but that’s way easier to read via machine translation than Japanese. Also, give Gru! a follow!
Taper ce titre me fait l’effet d’une consécration. Maintenant que c’est dit, passons au reste, au plus conventionnel : bonjour à tous, je suis très heureuse de vous retrouver pour un nouvel article ! Celui-ci, bien plus que les autres, est assez spécial puisqu’il s’agit d’une Interview, format jusqu’alors inconnu au bataillon. C’est un petit […]
These videos were making the rounds yesterday after the former Danceroids released them and people all kind of collectively went OOOOOOHHHHHHH; I was too busy being a dumb jerk at work to share then, but I’m ready now!
So if you’ve picked up Q’ulle’s newest single, “DRY AI”, which you should have done because Q’ulle’s worth your time and money, you know “PARTY ROCK!!!!” already; if you have not, this song may be a new one for you:
I feel like I didn’t even know that YKG was coming out with an album soon, but it had been a good long while since their last album (though not that long since we last looked in on them) — maybe if Phillter, the world’s greatest Yamaguchi Kassei Gakuen fan, weren’t so busy being all living and working in Japan and stuff, I’d have known about this earlier!
Anyway, NOTE4 dropped the other day (fittingly, their fourth album, following NOTE3, their, uh, third), and here’s the trailer:
Homicidols Maniac is met by a roar of boos when his face appears on the Titantron
Yesterday, huh? It’s a real shame that the referee completely missed that outside interference and use of foreign objects in the Blindfold Triple Threat. Congratulations to Yuna and Hanako-san nonetheless!
Things wind to a close today, and the field is practically set. Are you ready to ru– not get sued into oblivion? Continue reading →
I was super busy yesterday, gang, to the point that I was still at the ol’ office until a couple of hours after closing. I’d warned the usual suspects that I wasn’t going to be able to be very chatty, and I even turned off my Gchat notifications (which, if you know me, WHAT). It was awful. The only thing to do was to queue up some Bandcamp and Soundcloud favorites and get through a butt-ton of work.
Just before leaving, I decided to take a quick look at Twitter. I’m very glad that I did!
A hush falls over the arena as Homicidol Maniac takes a somber stroll to the ring.
I know. I know! Maybe you don’t consider it an upset that Yurapiko took down Yuimetal in the Whirlwind Smile-off DEATH MATCH, but I do; it seems like ol’ Babymetal just doesn’t have the same cache that they used to.
A sudden flash! bang! of light, and Su-metal appears at the top of the ramp!
“Everybody knows that you’ve rigged this competition against me, Homicidol Maniac, but I pledge victory to all the little kitsunes out there!”
Isn’t that precious? Well, without further ado, let’s get into today’s action! Continue reading →
You guys who are bigger fans of Hirano* Yuri than me (Jordan, I’m looking in your direction), help me out. She added this rocking little corker to Soundcloud last night, and I don’t recall having heard it before, but that apparently doesn’t mean anything because I miss lots of stuff:
I mean, I don’t even have an analog for that much bounce. Supergrass, but with the singer from Letters to Cleo? No idea. Continue reading →
