Let’s Have Ourselves a Look at Mikicco

It was literally months ago when one of the routine Twitter conversations with Pure Idol Heart got me to pop open a few video snips in my browser at work … whereupon I basically forgot about them for a while. But I needed to clean up my whole business there this week, so I took some time to stick around after hours and account for things, either just Xing it out for being not terribly interesting or setting reminders for myself, and this is the result of one of those reminders.

This is Mikicco (Twitter), aka Mikitsuko Mikikko, and her profile lists her as being less than 4 cm tall and 4 kg in weight, so she must be very small indeed. No really. Also something with shellfish, loving and hating it. Weird girl! Continue reading

I Had an Even Better Reaction to Pikarin’s Latest

And speaking of videos that came out yesterday and I temporarily had to shelve in the interests of time, Pikarin joined Guso Drop in making good on a teaser video for her most recent release:

Man, I think we got played! Continue reading

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

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!

Dots Appropriately Provides a Religious Experience for Holy Saturday

It figures that almost immediately after hitting Schedule on that post about the lazy weekend and the video teasers, a real-deal MV was delivered unto the world by Dots. Dots! The exciting little shoegazer+ project with the enigmatic look and bizarre/incredible performance style and Maniac’s heart with a little bow around it. Those Dots!

The song is “Satellite,” but the choreography is apparently a chimera. As Brian put it, “We appear to finally have a genuine, bonafide, non-abstract and reasonably professional-but-not-too-professional DOTS PV!” Anyway, enjoy it because you deserve nice things:


That lead guitar gives me hope

Get Funky with Dance for Philosophy

I never trust that I’m going to keep up with everything, and definitely not that I’m going to have all of the answers. That’s what you guys are for! Literally!

Take for example:

I’m having immediate PASSPO flashbacks

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

For the Tuesday WTF, Your Guess Is as Good as Mine

I’m starting to get a little bit of an additional fascination with RABBITS Lab, I’ll admit, because I don’t understand the project, the idol persona, the creative process, any of it, at all, at any time.

So imagine: I have about 20 minutes this morning to find something WTF-worthy, and Twitter’s turning up bupkis, so it’s time to take the terrifying journey called Look Through Maniac’s YouTube Subscriptions for New Videos. Why is this terrifying? Because I have many subscriptions, and also many random subscriptions to accounts that do a lot of live video and the like, but also add all kinds of things that don’t interest me at all, and sometimes things that I find strange and disturbing.

Anyway, TMI; I was very fortunate today because RABBITS Lab, being pretty fresh yet, was right near the top of the list, and yes, there was a new upload, and yes, it’s completely appropriate:


Oh no, “LABBITS Lab.”!

The Blue Forest Family Is Bigger Yet: Meet Real Light

You know how idols will sometimes say in interviews that their whole motivation to get into the work was because they saw idols on stage and they were “sparkling” and I kind of lazily always call back to that by calling idol “sparkly” because let’s be frank it is?

This is kind of what they mean:

If You Wanted a Preview of PassCode’s ‘bite the bullet,’ Now’s the Time

I don’t want to say too much about it because I’m sure that the video’s impending (and possibly even available in all countries right away this time!), but definitely check this out:

You never fail me, PassCode. Continue reading
