Remember that ish with BiSH (ha) and the mini-album they have coming out, the one that’s going to include an anime theme?
This is that theme:
I’m an idiot and accordingly stayed up to watch the WACK Exhibition on Niconico Douga like a crazy person, and I did it because I wanted there to be some kind of fireworks coming out of the nearly-a-week-long WACK auditions.
For once, I was not disappointed!
Here’s your very brief recap: BiSH is WACK’s crown jewel; and also completely heartless, because while everybody else was literally sobbing, they were horsing around; Kamiya Saki only exists for Watanabe to treat her like shit; if you ever wondered if massive nuclear reptilian kaiju had feelings, wonder no more. Oh and a whole bunch of other stuff related to the auditions and exhibition and aftermath after the jump. Continue reading
With the trainwreck that is the WACK auditions, my first promise when I was handed the keys to Homicidols.com was to get in contact at WACK HQ and make sure Watanabe finally got what was coming to him. That smug git has tortured idols in the name of publicity long enough! It’s about time we showed this man some humility.
So I arranged a special event, hosted by Pour Lui herself, with some help from BiS, BiSH, Gang Parade, the one girl from SiS that’s currently in idol purgatory, the other WACK eliminations who are also in idol purgatory; all for the sole purpose of expressing their feelings towards old Junnosuke himself; with paddles.
Exclusive video footage of the event below: Continue reading
Despite my reservations (and desire to do anything but idol for an evening), I let Kerrie talk me into watching the all-group WACK audition marathon that began last night, and I let Garry talk me into joining the chat, and I have no agency of my own apparently because I’m blaming others for my choices.
That being acknowledged, thanks guys. You only get so many chances in life to hear Aina the End “audition” with GANG PARADE/Pla2me’s “Plastic 2 Mercy”:

That’s literally the worst headline I’ve ever written; you’re welcome
With the Makuhari Messe show announced, you knew it would only be a matter of time for BiSH, now officially existing to shovel money into Avex’s gaping maw, to announce a new record to build on the steady success of “DEADMAN” and KiLLER BiSH and now “Promise the Star” and continue their inexorable rise to being big enough, but not staid enough, for Budokan.

My apologies, kiddos, for being a bad Maniac yesterday and not contributing much of anything, but I was dealing with some stuff and it just got to the point where posting anew wasn’t going to better anybody’s lives, so I decided to just shift the relevant stuff ahead a day.
And speaking of relevant!

BiSH’s Nirvana-themed tour final was yesterday, and at it they announced the biggest show in their history, and arguably for anybody in the WACK camp — they’re going to Makuhari Messe (Event Hall — see below0. That’s kind of a big deal. Continue reading
If you recall, in our post-“Promise the Star” world, the most exciting thing about BiSH was the announcement that Ainajiendo herself would be featured on multihyphenate TeddyLoid’s new EP, which would include a cover of “MONSTERS” and a whole bunch of other stuff.
A lot of you are going to be just as excited as I was to hear and see this (or as excited as a really nice friend and I were when listening to it yesterday); another lot of you are going to hate this so hard and I really wish I could see your faces!
Reminder: Aina’s also a sick dancer
I knew the MV drop was coming, and I waited for it, and then it happened and I just spent about 30 minutes just going back over it and trying to decide how I feel. I love BiSH, you know? I’m one of the goobers who pretty universally supported what they were doing even as other folks found faults — that’s okay! we’re not always going to agree on everything! — and can be fairly said to have been really eagerly anticipating their second major label single.
So here’s “Promise the Star”:
Where are you on this one? And take your time; I have things, but I also don’t want to be setting an agenda here (thought you can probably tell what it is). Ready?
I feel like I skip over a lot of the more random BiSH news because there’s so much of it and most of it pertains to performances and fan club stuff and basically a whole bunch of things that we’re not going to experience, and they don’t seem relevant to the BiSH story, so I just leave it alone; let these guys worry about that stuff, and you’ll find it if you’re interested.
This MONSTER biSH business, though?

With BiSH having a major single out next month, getting a music video was inevitable. Unfortunately, we have no music video yet. However, we do have a trailer for a music video:
Personally, I never saw the point in trailers for things like music videos. But I can’t lie that the piano notes at the end gave me chills!
Coinciding with the trailer, we also got some CD covers. Continue reading
