Take Maniac’s Best of 2016 Challenge

Before we actually kick off voting for the Best of 2016, team, I thought I’d actually get around to introducing the You vs. Me component so it makes a little bit more sense.

See, you’re all smart, tasteful people. You’re here, after all! I, however, am the smartest and tastefulest and will brook no argument, and while I won’t be making any direct interventions into the community’s vote for the best of the year, I will nonetheless make my own thoughts known.

I’ve asked a genuine panel of experts* to vouchsafe my submissions; the task before you (should you dare to take it on!) is to see just how well you know your Homicidol Maniac. Using the ballot below, select for each category not your own favorite, but what you think mine is. Continue reading

You Won’t Believe What Was Said During Maniac Night on A-to-J’s Podcast

Are you ready for three hours of chatter about idols? For Friday the 13th, the smart and cool team at A-to-J Connections had yours truly on as a guest. We talked dark idols, everything from Kamen Joshi to Yukueshirezutsurezure (hear it said out loud!) and Zenbu Kimi no Sei Da to Necronomidol. And then the conversation kept going for a good while after!

A-to-J is something that you should look at. You should visit their site and attend their events. These are good ideas.

Bad ideas are: Making fun of Maniac’s voice, making fun of Maniac’s broken driver that prevented webcam operation, making fun of Maniac’s opinions, making fun of Maniac.

Hey You Guys! I’m Gonna Be on TV!

Kind of!

For reasons unbeknownst probably even to them, the fine humans over at A-to-J Connections have invited yours truly to participate in their podcast tonight.

You should be afraid, dog!

Tune in for awkward real-time puns, rampant mispronunciations and so, so many swears in addition to whatever else A-to-J wants to talk about. I will everything in my power to keep the conversation focused entirely on the most obscure things possible.
