I will happily put myself down on the record as being a fan of SAKA-SAMA. Part of the Trash-Up!! stable that always has such glorious acts associated with it, they’re in a really cool creative churn with everybody from Dots to Avandoned and various points beyond and in between.
I will also admit to almost always just skipping the latest live videos that make their way onto the official Trash-Up!! channel on YouTube, which is a great channel, but which also has gone through serious runs of publishing the same few songs over and over again because idol.
Yesterday was different, though, and “Mirrorical Underground” is great! Continue reading →
I’m going to let you guys in on a little secret: When you wake up in the morning and see that you have a DM on Twitter and it’s from Phillter and the preview is just the “Sent a link“, you’re probably about to get something really cool.
I mean that title to be nuanced, by the way.* One, I feel like I’m not good enough for these gifts from Bokura no Oyugi; on the other hand, what crimes did I commit that would justify having this mass-media blasted into my consciousness? Maybe call it delightful pain, I don’t know.
The terror clown idols who have now spent several days as my absolute personal obsession on three different occasions, the literal stuff of nightmarish carnival hellscapes getting caught making out with some easily impressionable doe-eyed idol candidate behind the calliope. They really only ever release stuff in the same month as a blue moon or something, so these are an absolute treat to get.
Happy weekend, friends! Have you been thinking about fun alternatives for idol MV sets? We need more fun!
This was a hell of a week, though, wasn’t it? Of course the highlight was Papermaiden’s interview with Not Secured, Loose Ends in Toronto, and Daemon’s eyewitness reporting on their first appearance on North American shores. I’m still a little sore that I missed out, but that’s the way the cookie crumbles sometimes. Besides, details are soon to come on another beloved-by-the-community group venturing forth to lands outside of Japan, and I for one can’t friggin’ wait to know the specifics (about which I’m deliberately being coy because you probably know what I’m talking about but I only feel like posting once it’s all lined up).
Of course many things happened and didn’t get included here on the sacred pages of Homicidols.com, so it’s time to look back!
Don’t You Ever Get Tired of This, Maniac?
Did you want the details on Hauptharmonie’s final concert?
Sorry, guys, that’s probably not the best reaction to LDID’s little teaser that they put out at noon (Japan noon!) ahead of their show tonight, and I’d have preferred to have something cute (clever-cute, not kawaii-cute) to say about it, but this sucker just keeps growing and flying and then:
I thought I’d finally go back to some of the other bits of video of lesser-known idols to flesh out today’s offerings, gang, so: Remember HAMIDASYSTEM? I don’t want to oversell their heaviness or anything, but we had some fun with them last time, and they put out this little bit of video recently. I felt like maybe it’d be a good idea to visit with them again!
This is actually one of the B-sides, if I’m looking at the info on the single correctly, so interesting that it’s what they’re putting out as a promo. Might there be an MV on the way? It only took forever and a day for them to give us “VICTORIA” last year, after all. Continue reading →
Hot damn, you guys, this is good times. I used the occasion of BiSH’s announcing this show (with live broadcast!) to complain about their having been quiet for a while — as truly a First World problem as has ever existed — it was with a generally low expectation for anything really coming of it. That was stupid! Of course people were going to record it!
This sucker is worth settling in for; I’ve seen my share of BiSH lives over the past couple of years now, but this might be my personal favorite stage of theirs, starting off with a bunch of the songs of theirs that I hold in highest esteem.
The Canadian adventures of Yukueshirezutsurezure Core Hate (I kind of love that) continue apace, though not for much longer, as their free headliner is now just a week away, and you’ll be able to see the members looking ahead to business yet to be done back home.
However, I want to continue to reflect on the outrageous honor of getting to interview NSLE in Toronto, and the tremendous job that Ariane did in chatting up the members and management, and in apparently becoming best friends in the process. I figured that it would be a popular item, given how well our overall community regards the Codomomental acts in general, but I didn’t expect that friggin’ waves of traffic that hit have been hitting the interview. It’s pretty great! And then I found a primary reason why:
We must be slipping or something, you guys; this live clip of Dots doing the appropriately titled “NOISE” isn’t like so brandy new that nobody could have possibly seen it before I stumbled across it yesterday (good ol’ YouTube). That ain’t right! All things Dots should be immediately lifted up and celebrated for the … something that it is.
