This is so cool that I’m just going to:
Good morning, you goofballs! As you know, our community is growing, and with that growth comes the feeling that many of us have: Holy crap I need to share this with other people!
You know about the podcasts; there’s A-to-J doing the Lord’s work for all things Japan, including lots of idol, and the Alt-Idol Podcast is still churning and growing, too. Subscribe, watch, listen, learn and, above all, interact.
There are other ways to spread the word, too. For instance, as Daemon likes to do, you can host a panel at a convention:

If you have a hankering to talk about the hard side of idol in a public forum and get a little bit deeper into this weird, wonderful world, AND you happen to be capable of attending Anime Los Angeles (in Ontario [California, not Canada]), here’s your opportunity:
Re: Title, I kid because I love. A-to-J does the Dark Lord’s work out there.
Well, friends, if you have a few hours (literally!) to kill over the next little while, you could do much worse than to spend them with the team at A-to-J Talks and lil ol’ me talking about the best stuff from 2016.
It actually happened in 2016, too!
Never let it be said that I don’t love a good panel on the hard side of idol (like Daemon’s!), nor that I don’t enjoy every minute spent talking about idols online with A-to-J (yes, even Manuel!). Nor let it be said that I don’t talk up friends because, come on, we’re all friends here.
But hey look! A-to-J’s team is frequently at various cons for various reasons, and they often do panels, and they often do panels on subjects that we happen to enjoy, and they just shared this video from their appearance at … what the hell is Kraken Con? Like, a seafaring event? Continue reading
Friends, we had a great time on A-to-J Talks this past Friday night. While we didn’t get to talk about everything on the agenda (for instance, only about 2/3 of the way through did anybody notice that the subject was supposed to be “spooky idols”), we did get to cover:
- The obvious connection between Pour Lui and Gerard Way
- Why people love the “Skulls in the Stars” video so much
- The new trend toward death in idol concepts
- And more!
I don’t know what’s happening in California these days, but it’s apparently infecting people’s brain waves. Those silly people at A-to-J Connections are having me on the A-to-J Talks podcast again tonight.

What’ll we be talking about? Continue reading
The song itself is BiS at their peak, a wild ride of pop punk at the climax of their career. Something about flowing with creative juices, I don’t know. Did you WATCH that video? It’s about sex. There’s no better way to put it. People have taken to foregoing the technical translation and just calling this song “HORNY.”
Read the whole thing, and know that this whole countdown may continue, but it’s not getting any easier to handle!
Last week, it was my pleasure to join A-to-J Talks again, this time for a special edition to discuss the return of BiS, how and why and what, with the obligatory wild-ass speculation that makes the whole issue so fun.
I still apparently can’t get my (new) laptop to actually send my face via Skype, so you have to settle for my sultry voice. No cats this time, either, though there may be a very brief murmuring sound that was me speaking in Mrs. Maniac’s direction about the cats.
But we mostly talked about BiS and stuff. LOTS of swearing happened, and some very #hottakes, so I guess it’s NSFW?
