Did you know that Bitcoin, which is not actually money but nonetheless something that people have invested in, and which has skyrocketed in value faster than a Dutch tulip over the past couple of months (in particular), is currently continuing to skyrocket in value because it’s open to futures trading for the first time, and capitalism loves wild speculation even more than I do?
I bring this up not because I’m encouraging anybody to put money into cryptocurrencies (I am not!), but because you could use the money that you aren’t throwing into the void to fund some worthwhile idol-associated projects that will leave us, the fans, as the greatest beneficiaries after all.
First up! I mentioned the boans project a couple of weeks ago, and it still needs some cash:
Hey, who else wants to get all of the cool idol DVDs, but balks because … well, unless your Japanese is at a pretty solid level, you’re going to be relying (at best!) on the vocabulary you do know and sweet, sweet context. That’s no way to live!
Our old pal boans agrees. You might remember boans as a Know Your BiStory contributor; he’s also ringleader of a band of merry translators and subtitlers who are all only too happy to hook up the English-speaking world with translations of prominent-and-actually-interesting idol films and the like. We’ve actually rounded up luchre for boans projects before! And now it’s time to do it again.
So Alloy, unofficially officially the successor unit of petit pas! and definitely up to the billing, started themselves a big-ass tour, and, rather than do the obligatory idol thing where you make the big announcement at the end, they decided to front-load the fact that:
I was being a little lazy on the updates about BiSH’s upcoming EP because reasons, and leave it to John to have the goods.
I have one issue with this: The re-recordings with the updated membership; how dare you write Hug Me out of that history?
Otherwise, I don’t buy a ton of idol stuff myself, but I’m all over this stash.
Here we are about one month away from the release of BiSH’s new offering. Oh, and does it sounds like a good one. I always get excited for new things from BiSH because they are always so good. So, lets take a look at what we have on offer this time.
Seeing these tweets happen yesterday gave me a good feeling; if you don’t like 2016 Homicidols.com Collaboration of the Year winner Screaming Sixties, I don’t know how to help you. They’re loud, they put on a great show, they usually only release tiny clips of their live shows (and on Twitter, no less) … basically, they’re a good thing. And this DVD looks like it’s going to be a good thing.
Man, this would be really exciting if I were in Shinjuku: BiSH is releasing the DVD of their Less than SEX tour final next week, and the whole thing is going to be narrowcast (but HUGE) on the big-ass Yunika Vision screen that we hear so much about:
【拡散希望】BiSH「Less Than SEX TOUR FiNAL"帝王切開"」野外プレミアム上映会 開催!!ライブ映像全編一挙放映!! 新宿ユニカビジョン 1月17日(火) 19:00～20:50 同時にダイジェスト版公開!!https://t.co/jmvnIsvKba
For now, we’ll have to content ourselves with watching this-here trailer for the DVD, being gobsmacked, hating people who live in Tokyo and wishing that the whole thing were actually just “Hoshi ga” like we thought for a hot second when the video first started. Continue reading →
Why’s that? Nbd, just Bellring Girls Heart streaming their B and Q concert DVDs before a live broadcast of the pre-hiatus Babel show. Just a few hours of the very best of BRGH! Nothing to get excited about at all! Continue reading →
Bellring Girls Heart is going away. Well, kind of. Mostly. For a little while. And that sucks and is sad, especially after the year they’ve had. But now you can relive the whole thing with this series of live DVDs that are coming out in a pair of Thursdays.
