I love this so much, you guys. And fitting, isn’t it, that the project that first made so many of us slack our jaws in disbelief (and then immediately begin week-long binges into the deepest, darkest recesses of idoldom) would inadvertently wind up being the subject of enough fan art to at least once wind up being one of the most bizarre things you’ve ever seen?
I’m trying to imagine a world in which Babymetal actually turned out something so Lynchian on purpose; people complained enough about “From Dusk Til Dawn” (but not, thank heavens, “Tales of the Destinies”).
That might be my personal ideal for them at this point. Babymetal’s done the whole “kawaii metal” thing, they’ve gone more conventional routes, they’ve pushed boundaries in a traditional sense — now let them become a Converge or Neurosis or Mr. Bungle for loudol. That’d be some shit. So many butts would be hurt!
Anyway, gods be good, that’s not even the most WTF / actual WTF for today. I’ve had it since Sunday! I just felt like it was a Tuesdayer, so here we are.
