What the Crap, You Guys? Marbles Broke Up

You all should just be thankful that I walked myself back from a “lost your Marbles” pun

This is dumb, bad news, you guys. Remember Marbles? Remember how it was like “oh neat, hardstyle idols, one of a kind!” and there was much praise? Well, on that original post, this happened:

Prophetic! Continue reading

Bonus Thursday Hurtsday: Live Wagamama Rakia!

Who else out there remembers Wagamama Rakia? I do, because I was momentarily significantly excited about them last year, only to be just as let down as always.

Why can’t idols always be exactly what I want them to be?!

At any rate, Pure Idol Heart had brought them up the other day, and then Viz Major was sharing this on Facebook and I felt like, yeah, sure, let’s have a look in: Continue reading

I Might Be Wrong, But This Was All the WTF I Could Handle for Tuesday

Hey team! So there’s plenty of “normal” stuff (that is, music videos etc.) today, or as normal as it gets for this whole business, but … you know how idols can get kind of creative in how and when they screw around, and how that tends to wind up on video, which then winds up on Twitter, when then winds up burning itself into the ancient reptilian part of your brain, which is probably exactly what they intended?

So Yannderu Ame, among the latest in sick-plus-disturbed-plus-crying idols, recently had themselves a little moment like that, I think. I say “I think” because what looks to me like a moment out of Ringu could simply be how they start the day, or part of a more elaborate bit of play-acting, I don’t know, don’t judge me.

Mistress Has Very Loud Video, Too

So on top of all of that other stuff from yesterday, including and especially that of it that trickled over into today (coming right up!), we have this grinding little corker from mistress:


Heavy

I don’t know what “Disturbing the Real” is meant to mean, or I guess what is meant by “the Real,” but you know what? It doesn’t matter! Continue reading

The ‘Painfully violent’ Video Is Here!

It feels like half of idol is sending out news and whatnot today — my queue for the week is getting ridiculous, and it’s only just noon — but I’m jumping over my own line to make sure that you all see Guso Drop’s latest.

The Heaviest Idol in the World deserves as much. Continue reading

PassCode’s ‘bite the bullet’ Is Partway Here

We heard the trailer for “bite the bullet” last week, and, in addition to being more than ready to hear PassCode’s second major label single, I was also nervous that region blocking would kind of ruin the party for those of us in North America (we weren’t able to pre-order, for instance).

No such problems with the video’s short version!

It’s a Lazy Weekend, So Here Are Some Video Teasers

It says “lazy weekend,” but my goodness was it a dull week, too. I’ll put it this way: I judge the overall strength of everybody’s interest in what’s going on by the amount of traffic that comes through these parts, and I have FANCY MATHEMATICAL FORMULAE to account for crazy business like the Corenament, so as long as certain baselines are being hit or surpassed, or the baselines are being consistently beaten (and therefore should be adjusted), I feel like I’m doing my job and idol is good and interesting and great.

This past week, though … I mean, at this point, I shouldn’t be struggling to find content to share, you know? I follow what feels like half of idol, friends are always sending over referrals, the Facebook groups and whatnot are going strong. There’s always something. Except when there isn’t! Like what happened this week! Or, at least, less than we’d like to be able to see.

Ergo, while I completely quietly made an editorial decision a little while back to not push out video teasers as main posts a little while ago (BECAUSE THERE’S SO MUCH STUFF JUST WAIT FOR THE REAL THING, MANIAC!), instead preferring them for the Weekender, I am immediately going back on that because dammit, we all need things to enjoy, even a little bit. It’s Saturday. It’s spring (except for you goofs in the Southern Hemisphere). We want loud idol stuff! Continue reading

While We’re on the Topic: Bee x SWAT

I alluded earlier to idols who kind of fit the parameters of the Friday Fun, and now I’m making good on that.

So you guys remember Honey Emperor from the other day? And how I was like, they have a sister group but honestly this bees thing? Well, this is the sister group, and the bees thing, it’s still a thing.


Specifically, armed bees

Alloy’s Steps Forward: One Single, Two Members

Oh, and this goes on the Thursday Hurtsday train, too, probably — certifiably loud inheritors of the actual petit pas! legacy because they’re from the same family and until like two weeks ago even had an old member Alloy* are going to release their first single:

I’m always amused when musicians release a single well after having put out something else, album or EP or something; it’s not, but it sounds to my brain like a weird step down

Along with that is the anticipated partial member overhaul: Continue reading

Let’s Give Thursday Hurtsday to uijin

You guys know that I dig a little uijin. In this case, their steady forward march toward bigger and better things is a live MV from their live last Saturday:


Thanks as always to my dude Pure Idol Heart

It needs to be blogging-appropriate to insert a “nodding” emoji sometimes. Continue reading
