GANG PARADE’s ‘Beyond the Mountain’ Is Available for Free in Many Ways!

I didn’t see this one coming!

Because I’ll never actually understand WACK’s business model, nor how T-Palette operates in general, I’m surprised every time this happens: If you want GANG PARADE’s new single, you can download it for free from OTOTOY (preferred site for officially free idol downloads!), or you can just get the songs straight from Soundcloud: Continue reading

I’m So Mad That I Almost Didn’t Even Want to Share These GANG PARADE Photos

Because I hate everything right now, I’ve been in transit hell for going on 24 hours, and yeah, I got some PiGU to soften the blow, but I’m just way beyond the point at which I actually give a crap about anything other than … well, getting to work. What a world.

But. So. GANG PARADE. They announced this jazz and I was like “The hell? Didn’t they just do a new single? And also that title’s really familiar” and then was like “I DON’T CARE I WANT TO PUNCH THIS BABY.” But then I ate a sandwich and things started to fall into place.

“Beyond the Mountain.” John did that, hence my confusion. So this is all the art that they’re using for it. Continue reading

Oh Also a GANG PARADE Single

I got the weirdest sense of deja vu when I saw this little bit on the Internets yesterday; didn’t we just talk about this single? And a search turned up nothing! Ergo, it is news, and ergo, it fits neatly into this whole business with BiS, doesn’t it.

Anyway, John can explain it well enough for you.

I was never a big follower of GANG PARADE, at least until I watched the WACK AUDITIONS, which I followed pretty closely. There has always been an on going joke about the group being where idols go to die. Now this is absolutely wrong. The group puts out some pretty good tunes, as all the […]

All Right, Now You Can Get at GANG PARADE’s Latest

For a hot minute there, GANG PARADE had made this announcement about the availability of their “FOUL” single on OTOTOY (for free! why!) and the addition of “Close your eyes” to Soundcloud without actually having posting the track to said service, and OTOTOY keeps taking its sweet time to zip up my files, so I had to wait like 30 whole minutes for the thing to arrive.

Anyway!

It’s not even the first time that’s happened. Fun!

The WACK Exhibition Fallout Was Actually Pretty Awesome

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

Watanabe finally got his commupance

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

A Funny Thing Happened During Last Night’s WACK Auditions

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”:

And as Far as Punning on Titles Goes, It’s Actually Opposite Day for GANG PARADE

Yep, this would be one of those releases that I expected today; GANG PARADE getting out the MV for their new single, which, help me out, I thought was called “BODY & 7SOUL” but this is “FOUL,” so is this a B-side? I don’t care. They could call it “Ham Sandwich” and I’d be okay with it.


Also, ham sandwich

After “Plastic 2 Mercy,” this is a nice next step. Continue reading

Let the Wild Speculation Begin! The WACK Three-way Auditions

Last week, I made the unwise decision to notification-follow Watanabe on Twitter. At first, I was really just looking for new stuff about the BiSathon (so we could do our own!), but that wasn’t panning out and I was bored, but then came one of the ominous “something will happen at 22:00!” tweets, and … well, given that BiSH was the only part of the company that he hadn’t molested in a while, let’s just say that a quick RT from that group’s account had me convinced that the Captain herself was graduating immediately and had set the rest of the roster on fire.

This is no way invalidates that fear!
