Billie Idle, Late Night TV, Sure Thing

I wanted to get this out before I forgot about it (again), so do forgive its somewhat random nature, but check it! Billie Idle make an appearance on The NIGHT, which isn’t new for them, but this is probably the first time that I’ve seen (this much) video from it:

Did You Guys Want to See More Babymetal from the Tokyo Dome?

This recording popped up on Reddit last night, with the uploader pulling the ol’ fake-’em-out-with-YouTube-but-it’s-actually-on-Dailymotion trick. I was on the fence about whether to make yet another callback to the Dome, but then figured that it’s been a while since we last really did anything fun with Babymetal, so heck, post the sucker.

As the video stuff indicates, this is “No Rain, No Rainbow,” a song that I loved all the way up until it wound up on Metal Resistance, whereupon I immediately fell out of love with it, but this video got me to love it all over again:

Here’s That Screaming Sixties Collaboration We Were Warned About

Collaborations are one of the things that make idols fun — whether it’s your favorites mixing it up with other idols or taking the stage with a band, you know that you’re getting something both familiar and unique at the same time.

Last year’s Collaboration of the Year winners (well, half of them), Screaming Sixties, had warned us that they were going to be connecting with I love you Orchestra, and here are the results:

Thanks, Jul!

We’ve Been Missing Guso Drop Lately, So Thursday Hurtsday Is Theirs

You guys, you may have noticed that I’m kind of an idiot sometimes*, so trust me when I say that yeah, I published this yesterday by accident because I somehow lost the ability to understand how time works. I did catch it before I ruined things for everybody; I did not catch it before Jul saw the thing and clicked and shared some very useful information that now I can incorporate into the post at the correct time!

So! I’ve changed up just about everything, but dig it: I’m first showing you the live video because that was the plan all along.


Literally never a dull moment

But it gets way better!

Here’s a Nice Chunk of Live Minna no Kodomo-chan

Man, do you guys remember Everybody’s Children and their awesome debut MV? I had seen some renewed chatter around them lately, Facebook and otherwise, and then the Supreme Nothing himself went plumbing and turned up this awesome chunk of live video:


Well, you mostly hear wota, but still

Oh, Sweet, There’s uijin That I Haven’t Heard Yet

I was mostly minding my own business, as I do, and friend to us all Pure Idol Heart was like “hey bro, you gotta check this out,” and I was like, this is how you wind up addicted to painkillers in the after-school special, but I’ve learned by now that one should listen to one’s elders when delving into idol, especially when said elder is possibly not an elder but has been around this whole game for a while, so I complied, and oh look! New uijin video!

Let Phantom Voice Get You Going

It suddenly dawns on me that football season is now completely gone for months yet to come, and Sunday just kind of blends into stupid-ass Monday, except this is a holiday weekend in the United States so we can smash two former presidents’ birthdays together and have an excuse to have a federal holiday in February, and Monday feels like Sunday and that would ordinarily be fine except for the fact that it’s an extra day of little to do right in the worst part of the year. So let’s give it a jolt.

Just a few days ago, Phantom Voice (remember them?) dropped some live video from their recent series of one-mans (good for them!). They’re just one-song snips, but worth some time if you feel as butt as I do this morning.

No, *Now* You Can Watch the Live Debut of There There Theres

The anticipation was great, the moment dripping with potential as the former-and-reformed Bellring Girls Heart, now christened There There Theres, shared the link to the livestream of their debut stage performance. Hundreds in attendance, thousands watching all over the world as five raven-winged schoolgirls hit all the right notes, made the right steps and showed that, while the faces may change, the essence of BRGH would live on forever. Powerful.

The problem was that the only people who heard anything were the ones in the building.

Oh, and how the kinds of people who are fans of things like BRGH/TTTs not only took that in stride, but made it into a crucial part of the show. Many excellent jokes and many more excellent puns were made. Poor Tanaka had to come out and apologize:

He vowed to fix it, and fix it he did: Continue reading

Come Watch the Up Up Girls Auditions

Well, this is something that we’ve been neglecting to post about ever since Up Up Girls (Kari) got added to the Homicidols roster. Luckily, Maniac just gave admin rights to someone who as you may have guessed from the Friday Funday posts, is also a Hello! Project fan, and that includes groups made up of ex-trainees from their kenshuusei (known as Egg at the time) program, and what do you know, something big is happening that said admin has completely forgotten to update you on since it was announced! My bad.

Living Dead I Dolls Finally Graced Us with Some Live Video

Well, this whole thing started off with me going to share this post from John, but then suddenly there was a whole lot of video and there was another Straight from Japan joint and I couldn’t cleanly consolidate them so … one Homicidols.com post!

Living Dead I Dolls! Getting a little invested in their debut was fun a few months back, and then they debuted and then nothing. I mean, yeah, they were doing lots of shows, but it was a video-less existence, and what they sounded/performed like was kind of a pain.

And then: Yesterday.
