I still have things on my mind as of writing today’s Fun (hey, at least it’s on time!), specifically, this week’s Indie, Idol and Infamous Tour. Yup, I’m gonna try and inevitably fail to score some dirt on the latest batch of idols visiting my home country, then cry on the way home after I embarrass myself! But, surely, there must be a way I can embarrass myself ever so slightly less? Perhaps even prepare myself for any other idols I might run into in the future? Or maybe you just want to snark about Homicidols being a terrible website. Hey, it’s your call! Continue reading →
You know what’s been a thing in idol lately? Cafes. There’s of course the AKB48 cafe, Tsubaki Factory and Morning Musume had pop-up cafes recently, even WACK had their own half-assed version of a “cafe” (if by cafe you mean grab a BiS soda at Tower Records).
It’s a pretty funny coincidence that both of the most recent albums that I’m the most hype for just happen to be cover albums; you’ve got Bed In’s Endless Bubble out this week, but also, in the longest wait for a new idol release, my all-time favourite idol unit and queens of cover songs W finally released a collection of their canceled music (okay, that one is an EP, and the title track is an original song, but it’s W damn it!).
Yep, these past two weeks I’ve been all about cover albums. I want more! More! So this week, come up with some good concepts for idol cover albums. The hashtag is #IdolCoverAlbums and now I’m going to listen to Choi Waru Devil for the billionth time.
after days of blood, sweat and tears trivago is finally accepted into WACK. all wars end and the global warming stops. every person on the planet has equal rights; discrimination and exploitation are forgotten terms. god is happy.#WACKAuditionPredictions
In the future, the Japanese government captures a class of future idols and forces them to eliminate each other under the revolutionary "WACK Royale" act. Forty-two idols, six days, one deserted Island: welcome to Audition Royale!#WACKAuditionPredictions
Auditions continue until WACK has 150 members under their belt. At the reveal of member 150, Watanabe reveals that performances will take place from now on at a dedicated theater in Tokyo, all groups are merged into BiSH, which becomes the alt-idol AKB48. #WACKAuditionPredictions
Speaking of WACK, we all know WACK stands for “Watanabe Artistic Creative Corporation” BiSH stands for “Brand-new Idol SHiT”, BiS is “Brand-new Idol Society”, and amiinA stands for “Awake mind into ideal naked Avalon” (according to the mysterious stranger that submitted this week’s hashtag into the Friday Fun suggestion box I keep saved for whenever I forget to write something up again) but what about our other favourites? Yeah, PassCode might SEEM like a straightforward name for an idol group, but who knows if it really means “Please Ask Sally’s Secretary, Caitlyn, On Data Entry”? And what the hell does Gu-Gu LULU even mean!? I need answers and I need them now!
This week’s hashtag is #IdolAcronyms and … sorry about the WACK Audition guys. Yikes.
As predicted, last week’s Friday Fun backfired horribly!
Dotstokyo has announced that their disbandment later this month is tied to the global climate protests. When global action has been taken, the dot-chans will reportedly return to performing. Even idols hate global warming… #CurrentEventsAsIdolNews
“BiS in yellow vests to protest Watanabe’s latest decisions on the members as well as what they describe as “bullying against Aya”. Tags have been found in Zepp Tokyo saying “YUiNA belongs to EMPiRE” This national crisis has been going on for 18weeks”#CurrentEventsAsIdolNews
In the sequel #FyredolFes 2 the evil developers manage to shut down the following years festival by bribing the local authorities. HM has to become a professional skateboarder & win the first prize of a local skateboarding competition after multiple musical training montages.
Raise your hands; who else saw this and thought “If Banamon somehow became big enough to start getting brand deals while still keeping their apparent concept of cringe, this is exactly the kind of thing they’d advertise” and then die a little inside because seeing anything related to Banamon just sort of does that to you?

Yui loss, day 110. The sun staggers slightly behind, like the bands of time are worn and stretched like an old cassette tape. my horse dies silently.still,I follow this path, where eating, sleep, warmth are all abstract concerns, like watching an old movie.#IdolFanFicMadness
