Well, amigos, it actually happened: It’s the first birthday of Homicidols.com, and … I’m honestly kind of stumped on what to do about that. Despite not having any particular religious or cultural opposition to it, I’m not really much of one for celebrating Maniac Day, so all I know of birthdays stops at the age of 21, i.e., the time I decided to celebrate with friends and got so drunk that I fought a bathroom and was still hungover three days later.
Anyway, Garry and I managed to launch our sites at approximately the same time, and we were talking about the upcoming milestone and he’s doing a thing that’s going to be pretty cool, so I thought, hell, why not. In other words, indulge me a bit of navel-gazing; it’s the least you jamokes can do. Continue reading →
I was like, “Oh, message from the boss, that’s not good, I hope …” and then it was a bunch of mundane thoughts and then Watanabe’s like “we have a day off, how about a 100km marathon?” Continue reading →
I almost let this sick, sick event slip under the radar! Remember the whole business with GANG PARADE doing not just one super marathon per WACK’s insane traditions, but a there-and-back 200km relay haul?
Welcome back to the Monday Match Game! Last week’s contest saw Billie Idle crush their poor namesake (Billy Idol) in a mismatch as complete as it was expected.
This week, we complete the run of puns based on idols’ names by getting a little monstrous. Yes, folks, while it’s fun to pit like-named human beings against one another, it’s quite another to stand up idols against analogous primal forces with the very future of the nation of Japan at stake.
In this corner, the most iconic movie monster of all time, a prehistoric reptilian mountain of destruction whose very name evokes fear, awe and probably a little bit of pants-wetting in those who hear it. In the other corner, a newcomer to the idol game but no stranger to fear-inspiring behavior in her own right. Two powerful enigmas enter, but only one will leave! Continue reading →
As you may recall, Ladybaby underwent something of a reboot lately, being rechristened as the Idol Formerly Known as Ladybaby and signing with major label King Records. Their first single (see the tweet) is due at the end of the month, and people have been anticipating some kind of pre-release that would give us a chance to react to what’s become of one of 2015’s most talked-about debuts.
Ladybaby is officially on hiatus, but Rie and Rei are still doing work together, in this case as hosts of this, uh, show with another weird adult man. Like, a lot of the stuff I watch is kind of weird because I can’t understand what’s being said and the context is missing, etc., but this is weird, period.
In what appears to be a reaction to BiSH management banning lifting and some other wota activity at their shows, Guso Drop has flat-out declared that not only will they do no such thing, but they are “most heavy idol in the world.”
Yurapiko’s smile does kind of take the edge off the attitude in that photo, however.
That’s a bold claim! Hardcore-as-hell or not, Guso Drop, you can’t just say something like that without objection. This must be settled by blood, or an Internet poll at the very least. Continue reading →
