I really wanted to give BiS crap about doing that “never title your thing in a way that’s easy to ironically mock” thing from the very second that “I can’t say NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” was announced, but I moreso really wanted to be happy and satisfied about getting invested in this whole BiSusiness and sticking up for probably the most influential idol project for my turn as a fan, not to mention the thousands of people for whom idol is a much more immediate and impactful part of their lives. I was ready to get some knives ready for this one, you know? Just in case. Either cut it to ribbons in disappointment or defend it unto the death.
This one almost slipped by me yesterday, which is funny considering that I’ve been trying to watch BiS/H/EMPiRE like a hawk over the past week for things that I think are inevitable but suddenly seem kind of evitable. Anyway, December 8:
【WACKのフェス。開催決定!!】12/8(金) ZEPP ダイバーシティにてWACK所属のアーティストが一堂に会してライブすることが決定!! 出演 BiS BiSH GANG PARADE EMPiRE and more!! 詳細⏩https://t.co/cEFYeLYIoa
The last time there was a WACK event of quite the type, it gave us The Trade, The Idol Eventually to Be Named EMPiRE and wasted a bunch of time from an audition process that actually changed very little for the company but probably sold Niconico a bunch of temporary subscriptions. Well, also, there was the family reunion: Continue reading →
The news came out so late last week that it barely registered for most people, but Peri Ubu has gone into the hospital with what the Googler called enteritis. Rather than just forge ahead without her, BiS quickly announced that all appearances through Aug. 20 were being cancelled or postponed, with other WACK members filling in on some bills. This included TIF, much to the chagrin of some. However, Ubu was tweeting even on Friday, basically saying, hey, I’ll be okay, just gotta get well, we’ll be back grrr.
Then things took a dark turn!
【お知らせとお詫び】 8/16に発売を予定しておりました「I can’t say NO!!!!!!!」は、ペリ・ウブの体調不良に伴い、10/4に発売を延期とさせて頂きます。 皆様に多大なご迷惑をお掛けし、心よりお詫び申し上げます。https://t.co/bvkyBknOua
Hi everyone, how’s the week been? I actually had to check back on last week’s Friday Fun entries because I’m half-asleep right now (thanks heatwave) and forgot! For shame! Last week’s #BadIdolNames certainly brought some good (or should I say terrible) suggestions.
I was stuck for ideas for this week’s Friday Fun. I had a few in the bag to be chosen, I just didn’t know which to go for.
But then like she was reading my mind, Pour Lui went and tweeted this an hour ago (as of writing):
It stands to reason that BiS, having come back from the dead to a warmish embrace and ultimately a more enthusiastic response after “SOCiALiSM,” would want to keep the momentum going, with a couple of new members and what felt to a lot of people like a good shot in the arm. So at today’s one-man:
This is kind of old news, but I missed my chance to mention it before and yet wanted to make sure that everybody knew — BiS’s BAD SOCiAL TOUR, featuring the addition of PAN LUNA and MOMOLAND, will kick off live on NICO NICO:
【リキッドSOLD記念】「BAD SOCiAL TOUR」初日の恵比寿LIQUIDROOM公演ニコ生にて生中継決定!!
That being said, I was a little bit unsure about how I wanted to proceed today. After yesterday’s unfortunate choices, I was thinking about doing Kamen Joshi vs. Al Jolson, but I thought that people might miss the joke and/or not have any context, and I figure that letting Amina kind of run with it is the smarter move anyway, so.
Instead, we have Terry:
People still banging on about the 'legacy' of BiS, move on and either enjoy what they are making now or drop the group. Simple really
