Quick note on this post: I love when you guys tell me about stuff! Sometimes it’s a bit of news, or sometimes it’s a performance to share; whatever it is, if it’s cool and good, I’m going to want to amplify it so more people can see more idol stuff.
Take for example Hoshina Fumimi, a member of Daichi’s A-minor crew and the kind of solo idol that I can personally really get behind — she’s doing it for the love, and she’s doing it because she’s good, and people should support that.
Pukovnik Krv is probably as big a fan as anybody in the West of Daichi’s merry band of misfits, and you know that he contributes a lot of material and insights around Guso Drop and family. In this case, it’s Fumimi’s birthday live, which has some story to it.

Good morning, lovely people!

This final live in Nagoya, their old home base, we’ve known about, but it finally came yesterday:
There I was last night, minding my own business, when the ever-reliable Pure Idol Heart was tweeting things my way (that’s what friends are for!), and right into the ol’ feed came what I immediately proclaimed to be my new favorite thing:
Anyway! The point here is not to tread back over stuff — it’s been covered, and with more genuine interest — but to hold up the shiny thing and get all excited about it. You know me. Continue reading →
Holy crap, you guys, it feels like half of everything happened this week, and that’s not even remotely true. Unless you’re Zenkimi, that is. Otherwise, the march toward the Corenament final continues unabated (Final Four revealed Monday!), and idol, as forever and always, remains a terrifying, stupefying enigma.
So What’s the Good Word?
I’ve been told that the Alt-Idol Podcast is off for the week, so go relive last week’s instead:
This is Li-V-RAVE (Twitter). They’re super brand new, like a month old, but I’m digging this limited stuff so far primarily because one of the members used to be a member of something else and was randomly in my Twitter feed and I don’t know who she is but that’s okay, now there’s Li-V-RAVE!

H/t to Phillter for pointing out that ayukuma released the video for their upcoming single today; thumbs down to whoever decided to publish the thing without availability in the United States or EU. But if you can see and hear, I bet it’s pretty good!
