Last week Brian covered for me while my laptop was away for repairs and you all did beautifully!
Well, well, well, my first Fun back with a fully-functioning computer and I completely lose track of the week and forget to do the thing! Shame on me! It’s lucky that you guys are able to come up with insanely good ideas, otherwise I’d have you drawing idols in MS Paint again! Continue reading
Wow, last week’s Friday Fun was pretty beautiful! Kerrie once again fulfilled her role as the nexus of idol fan energy and nurtured some positive vibes. We all should occasionally remind ourselves that while we do indeed love idols, the interconnected family that is the fandom community is perhaps an equal, if not greater draw to what keeps us here. Last weekend was even better for that little love-in, and we should indeed take a bit of pride in ourselves and each other for this thing we’ve become a part of.
Alas, Kerrie is still suffering through her frustrating technical difficulties, so the fun is falling onto the substitute squad’s shoulders. Thanks to Daemon and his mad mind though, we’ve got a very fun….well, Friday Fun!
You know what we need in the movies these days? Less Moody-McMoody superheros and more idols! So that’s where you come in! Imagine you’re pitching your concept for an idol-themed movie to an executive or investor and use a tweet to sell it to us!
It can be an idol-specific storyline, or perhaps a remake starring your oshi, or just about any wacky (or serious) thing you can imagine! Tweet your #IdolMoviePitch and wait for the offers to flood in! We’re waiting and have millions of dollars ready to throw at you! (Okay maybe not, but how about a $7 box of Raisinets?)
Well, that sure blew up in ways that I should have prepared for!
Wow, I actually managed to think of something on time for once! Let’s celebrate by admiring last week’s tweets!
Good morning everyone! Last week, you all made freakish frankensteins from your favourite idols!
Hi everyone! It’s been a while. Truth be told, I’ve been having computer troubles at home, so I’ve ended up having to significantly reduce how much content I’ve been able to write until further notice (which I’m sure all of you are very happy about!).
Thankfully, the rest of the team have been doing a fantastic job without me, with last week’s Friday Fun by Brian being one of the most successful ones yet!
Now, with how much fun last week’s challenging fun was, I wanted to do another fun that makes all of you think, laugh and go “god damn it, why didn’t I think of that?”. I wasn’t sure what to do though, until I saw this video appear in my YouTube recommendations.
Thanks Barshens! (And RIP)
Now, this shamelessly-copied fun takes a few steps:
- Dig through your collection of idol photos and find two photos of different idols
- Go onto morph thing (or any other site that lets you morph faces into one, if there is one) and morph your two idols into one beauty! (Or monstrosity?)
- Post your brand-new idol onto twitter, with the hashtag #Idolstein
- Wait and see who guesses correctly!
Here’s an example I made earlier this week to start with.
Wow, it’s Friday again, huh? Team Homicidols has been combining our minds together to help with the Friday Funs since Kerrie’s laptop went down, and one thing I think we’ve learned: Creating Friday Fun is actually pretty tough! Kerrie’s been doing this for quite a while now and when you realize how much effort she puts into entertaining us by dreaming up activities for the pre-weekender, it’s quite an impressive feat. But anyway, the crew came up with a new one and I think you’ll all have a good time with it!
But first, last week’s Fun was near and dear to us on a personal level, since it brought together fandom and creativity through fan-art. It was the positive and supportive rally we were hoping for, and please keep in mind that we intend to keep #idoldoodles going well into the future! We’re hoping to revisit the theme on a semi-regular basis and share more fan-art as a Homicidols feature, so by all means keep your pencils/paintbrushes/digital tablets sharpened!
More #idoldoodles to come!!!
Okay, now for this fine Friday! Have you ever played Pictionary? We’re doing something similar to that where we’d like you to utilize images and place them together to create references to idols, song, titles, album titles, etc. You can create a sequence of images, or even a single image to allude to something in the idol world. And for extra fun, leave them unanswered so people can guess at them! Here’s an example that Daemon came up with… Continue reading
Happy Friday!!! I’m filling in for Kerrie this week, and I know I’m not nearly as much fun, but it is indeed Friday so at least I’ve got that much going for me!
So last week the theme was #BadIdolAwards, and with ground that fertile, there were some pretty darn funny responses…
Now for this week, we’re actually looking at something that goes beyond Friday for some fun, and hopefully continues well past the next week. This is an idea we’ve kicked around for probably close to a year now, and I think it’s time we got it rolling…
Last week, we had fun at the expect of one of my more recent best girls!
Summer’s almost over, huh? When I was a child, hearing those words filled me with dread and sadness; no more sunny weather? Back to school? Please, no! But, now that I’m an adult that dislikes children (excluding kids that I’m related to, and certain younger idols), and climate change is gradually turning the planet into a a ball of flames, I just feel relieved now. Autumn is my favourite season when it used to be my most disliked; the kids are back in school, it’s cooler, not to mention all the typical “white girl with an instagram” perks of Autumn like pumpkin spice and pretty falling leaves. Where am I getting at with this? Well, now that Autumn is creeping upon us, its also the time that we begin to take a closer look at our best-of list, and begin planning for our annual voting period in late November/early December. And with silly internet awards on the brain, why not come up with another last-minute Fun idea? Well, maybe I should have waited until the actual awards season, but who knows if I have to push out another #WackAuditionPredictions post by then?
So, think back, not just to the awards you know and love like the Oscars, but also stuff like the Kids Choice awards, or any award show that offers prizes for “sexiest actor” and “best onscreen kiss”. What exactly is the idol equivalent of such, arguably, insigificant awards? What would it be and who would win?
Think up some prizes to give out to deserving idols using the hashtag #BadIdolAwards and who knows, maybe we’ll steal some ideas for our own best-of?
Last week, not a single one of you actually took part in last week’s fun, so instead I’m gonna share the responses I got to the tweet I made asking about idol workouts instead:
