It’s Thursday Hurtsday and I Demand Very Loud Idols

At the risk of being remiss toward a few other pieces that I’ve been sitting on, I wanted to make sure that I not only had a chance to get genuinely very loud and surprisingly, excitingly good for Thursday Hurtsday, but that there was a chance to come back around on Minna no Kodomochan, who are responsible for probably my single favorite Best of 2017-qualifying song.

So here’s a live set!


The real magic starts around 15:00

This is true: Much like how YouTube almost always has Biohazard in my recs when I’m listening to Western metal favorites, idol videos almost always have “I wish I were dead …” in the recommendations; I take this to mean that YouTube’s fancy (and smart!) algorithms have figured out that Minna no Kodomochan is perfectly attuned for my tastes, and that I should therefore celebrate them at every turn.

So, I guess it’s time to honor that. THEY’RE VERY LOUD AND THE SONGS ARE PRETTY FINE OVERALL AND I REALLY LIKE “I WISH I WERE DEAD …” AND THE GIRLS ARE DOING A GOOD JOB PERFORMING WITH THAT GOOFY THING ON THEIR BACKS AND TRASH-UP!! NEVER STEERS ME WRONG.”

Pretty good, right? Happy Thursday.
