Hey, You Guys Want a Surprise Ladybaby Song?

Look this thing just kind of happened!

It’s a limited delivery! It’s available for download! If you want it, go and get it!

IDOL is LAZY, Apparently

I kid, I kid. You know that I’m pretty eagerly looking forward to whatever it is that WACK ultimately gets around to releasing from its stable, maybe except for EMPiRE, but especially BiSH now that Dickhead called the as-yet-unannounced album a “masterpiece” (he also teased new BiS auditions, for what that’s worth).

Anyway, the point is, when I see that there’s going to be a shuffle unit best-of-plus-covers-plus-etc CD coming out …

… but not, you know, actual albums or singles or anything, I feel a little let down. Continue reading

I Bet This New ayumikurikamaki Is Really Fun

Man, you guys, there’s nothing quite as exhilarating as new party idol music and video, you know? I’ve been cautiously hype about this newest offering from Ayukuma since it was announced, and now it’s here, and I just know that it’s absolute aces. I just know it — even other People On The Internet think so! And the Internet is never wrong!

Look, they’re so stoked about it!

Nothing would excite me more right now than to put press Play and enjoy these lovable goofballs doing lovable goofball stuff right on my screen! And I bet the song is fun! If only it were actually something that I could watch at some point along the line of trying 12 different proxy services!

Apparently, everybody who isn’t Japanese needs a proxy

Better, Devil ANTHEM, Better

I had just (lightly) complained in the Weekender that Devil ANTHEM, who will sate anybody’s idol sweet tooth between occasions of being loud, a palliative in a time of trouble, needed to do more of said being loud. I don’t know if this is the loudest they’ve been (it’s not), but it’s a good start!

You may recognize the tune — they had previously released the audio — but this is a legitimately brand new MV. You can do a lot with slick production of live footage and some emotional (ha) solo images of the members, I guess. The new single drops next week. This has been a very short post because most of the info is linked!


I Feel Okay about DISDOL’s Next Generation

So yeah, somehow the least upsetting last live of the past week was the best attended:

I had been bullish on DISDOL’s reboot basically from the jump, simply because they’d been trending down as a project for a year and had been dropping members of prominence for almost as long, so I assumed that there were bigger institutional problems etc. Maybe that’s true, maybe not, it doesn’t matter; after they released that transitional video, I would’ve been content to write off the whole thing.

No need! Continue reading

I Hereby Nominate mistress for Everything

You know it’s October when idols of the homi- variety start dropping sweet, bloody pain for the world. I stumbled over mistress’s announcing an announcement this morning and felt like it was something to heed, but … sweet holy hell, I was not prepared for this:

How about Girl Mannequin for Friday the 13th?

I’m going to be honest with you guys: Despite being fairly able to dredge up some incredibly messed-up stuff here and there, I felt totally out of ideas when it came to doing something special for today. Oshi Digest will, of course, happen, but Sari’s a living nightmare whose blackness infests every second of every day, period; to try to pretend like this is some special exception would just be insulting.*

Languishing in my own self-imposed hell, feeling like to do nothing would be worse than any one thing that I could do, I was all set to nip the Fun in favor of something else when Luis (you remarkable human!) not only saved the day, but finally gave me an excuse to dredge from the hell that is the drafts queue something genuinely disturbing:

That, friends, is Girl Mannequin, and thank all the gods of light and dark for it. Continue reading

It’s Time to Crumble Before Kaqriyo Terror Architect’s 2nd Single

Hot damn, you guys, it’s time to do the 2-hour rodeo with the latest Codomomental brain blender. As usual, song preview, this time for the second single (the first was great!):

And also as usual, don’t let the 2-hour rule stop you, because we know how to preserve what deserves preserving! Continue reading

Yes, Alloy, I’m Awake, Thanks

All right, now that those terrible, uncomfortable, awful, heinous things are behind us, it’s time to pick up the pieces. Hey, I know! Let’s … actually, forget going looking for action, because Alloy got us taken care of right here:
