Surprisingly, as of writing this, there hasn’t been any bonkers Banamon news come out. Maybe they read your predictions of their future and are quietly discussing how to avoid every single one of them.
In an idol first, Banamon has a membership of -2 when a bunch of non-members crash the stage to announce their graduation from the group. #FutureOfBanamon
3978: A group of astronauts crash-land on a distant planet inhabited by controversial publicity hungry idols. After being captured by and escaping from the idols they find the remains of the Tokyo Skytree on a shoreline.#FutureOfBanamon
Well, it’s finally December. I’ve been playing the O’CHAWANZ Christmas rap on loop and panicking over all the last-minute Best-Of preparations. It’s a cause for celebration! So, I’m doing something special, yet tedious this month. Behold, the
HOMICIDOLS FRIDAY FUN HOLIDAY EXTRAVAGANZA!!!!
That’s right! The entire month of December, you’re getting a very special holiday-themed Friday Fun every week until 2019! How long can you go without getting fed up of Wa~ Marry Pin’Xmas? Let’s see! Continue reading →
It’s almost December already? Just like 99% of my oshis, this past year has just disappeared before my eyes! Soon we’re all going to be drowning in Best Of 2018 preparations! But don’t get too excited for the Holidays yet, we’ve got to cry over last week’s tragic auditions first.
I swear, with the news of BiSH starting a new show where they explore Japan’s ins-and-outs, I was so so tempted to do another WACK-inspired fun this week about idols exploring the hidden cultures of other countries. But:
Having two WACK funs in a row has been banned ever since I got that anonymous letter that said “Coco’s next if you don’t stop this”
It would literally just be me, Salem and Chris spamming the “Necroma eating Greggs” photo and nothing else
Now down to just two members, The Banana Monkeys become desperate, and announce an audition with a bonus: Whoever joins next gets $1000 on the condition that they keep up with this insanity for at least three months.
While discussing this week’s Fun with the Homicidols team, the idea floated around of making a Thanksgiving-themed fun. #IdolThanks perhaps? But, me being British, Thanksgiving means nothing to me except “You mean we stole Black Friday from this but not an extra delicious turkey dinner?” so instead, here’s something more relevant to me; getting mad at WACK!
A documentary of this year’s WACK audition, also known as “Trivago Hell: The Movie” is coming out in January! Anyone else just got a pang of misery? Well, so did the people making this movie, because even the title is literally called “The World’s Saddest Audition” in Japanese! Also, doesn’t this title sound so exploitable? To come up with even sadder audition scenarios perhaps? Continue reading →
If I could compare THE BANANA MONKEYS to anything at all, it wouldn’t be a banana, nor a monkey. It would be a bottle of Diet Coke. A bottle of Diet Coke that some jackass decided to do the Mentos prank with, then also shook it a few times just to make absolutely sure it would explode in just the right way, once opened. Because, much like a shaken-up Mentos-implanted bottle of Diet Coke, the person/s responsible for THE BANANA MONKEYS is likely a huge jackass. Also, when THE BANANA MONKEYS open up with some news, a whole damn bottle’s worth of eye-raising mess just comes exploding and pouring out and it feels like its never going to stop, until, in the end, we’re left with just a big uncomfortable mess that’s going to be a pain to clean up.
So, first things first. As mentioned in the last Weekender, Karin has decided to jump ship, citing that the general insanity that comes with being a Banana Monkey was just too much for her to deal with. But wait! There’s more!
So, remember that time when newbie Miru left for unexplained reasons, only it turned out she was a “licensed chiropractor”? This is basically a more minor repeat. Minmin (who lasted far longer than Miru ever did) suddenly stopped showing up to events, eventually announcing her withdrawal effective immediately. She claimed it was due to studying getting in the way of idoling, but apparently, it was because she was a cabaret worker? Unlike Miru, whose profile was right there, I couldn’t find anything about it other than the news article talking about the next thing, so let’s just take that one at face value.
So, now Banamon are now three members down, will they keep going as a duo? Of course not, what if they jump ship due to secret side-jobs too? They’re holding a quickie audition! Continue reading →
In a fandom where half of us have no idea what our faves are talking about, it’s very easy for them to be misquoted on certain topics. Which means its also easy to make up fake quotes for shits and giggles and possibly confuse a bunch of people! Observe: Continue reading →
That was “Semai Monogatari” from Maison book girl’s upcoming album, Yume.
In a time full of general idol weirdness you can always count on MBG to bring something that’s both a pleasant break from everything else, while also being artsy enough to make you go “Hmmmm”. I’m looking forward to hearing the deeper meanings and interpretations from certain fans because god knows I’m too dense to really think any deeper other than “Ooh, pretty!” Continue reading →
Ohohohohohoho oh lordy! Last week, in the midst of oshi-loss, Supreme Nothing kindly took the reigns with his own dealio. Then right as I was starting to feel better one of my all-time non-Homicidol oshis had her own little announcement to make! HAHAHAHA, I don’t feel anything any more! (At least, not until Coco decides her time is up, which considering my luck with oshis this year will probably already have been announced 5 minutes before this post goes up)
Anyway, Supreme Nothing, why don’t you summarize last week’s Fun while I rip out my tear ducts!
Thank you Kerrie! Well, truth be told, “Idoween”wasn’t exactly the highest trending Friday Fun hashtag ever, it was kinda just me, Andrew, and Salem the Black Cat playing along. (sad trombone) But that’s okay cause for one thing, not every edition of the Fun needs to break the internet, and second, Salem is a funny-as-heck cat that never fails to crack me up. He would definitely win the #Idoween hashtag award if there was such a thing….
Y’know, I always enjoy checking in every Friday to see what kind of wackiness (or WACKness) that Kerrie’s come up with, and now I feel like I appreciate how much work she puts into these hashtag fandom projects even more! (Here’s where I cue up Carly Simon’s James Bond theme from the 80’s…. “Nooooobody does it better…..”)
Thanks as always, Kerrie, back to you!!
Aaah, that’s better. Where were we? Oh right. Well, what else other than every idol I ever loved jumping ship, let’s see… -paper shuffles- Ah, right, the BiS League thing. That’s certainly a thing nobody ever wanted yet still gets forced upon us! Might as well make the best out of a bad situation (lord knows I’ve been doing it a lot lately). Continue reading →
Sigh. I’m going back to my crying hole now, can someone else do the fun this week? Thanks.
(This is Supreme Nothing stepping forward and awkwardly tapping on the mic…)
Kerrie, Kerrie, it’s okay!!!! We really do understand. I feel like the last week has been a group therapy and support session as we come to terms with a major impending idol loss. Even last Friday’s Fun took a fittingly tragic turn…
I’m not even gonna try to do the Fun as well as Kerrie. Instead I just talked it over with the rest of Team Homicidols and we came up with a “Group Fun Collaboration” of sorts related to Halloween! Continue reading →
It’s my favourite time of year again, good old Halloween! Now, you should already know by now to have “SAMHAIN” on repeat until November, but is that really enough idol spooks? Of course not, it’s Homicidols! So, we’re bringing back an old favourite for you all, partly because I’m lazy, partly because, it went so well the past couple of times, might as well make it tradition. Continue reading →
