I thought I’d take a look at what all Desu.Rabbits were up to after doing that other bunny thing, and wouldn’t you know it, they’ve been slowly releasing tidbits of their first one-man. It’s a live digest, but hell, it’s in four parts, that’s enough video to be many idols’ entire performance month:
This is really fun, and perfect for you Sunday start-up — Desu.Rabbits, who continue to wheedle their way into my fickle heartbleed, had themselves a fun little beach party that was just all over Twitter:
Good morning, fellow disciples of the cute and disturbed! It’s Papermaiden, back for a second punctual post before I finally am on top of my things and starting my own column every fortnight or so.
This week, we’re doing something a little different, graciously sponsored by The Ender Partner talent at finding really dubious stuff on the Internet.
So Partner the End drags my overworked ass in front of the TV, asking me for 25 minutes of my time to show me something he refuses to disclose anything about. Here we are, watching a guy (King Lionel) trying to become an Internet celebrity. His whole act is based on parodying either pop songs or remixing children traditional songs to make them sound like club anthems. He managed to land a deal for a show sponsored by the Ontario French Television network on the web and their cable network. In this episode, he was invited by a Japanese management company who just wanted to meet him and he uses this trip to make himself known to the general public.
I’m such a disaster sometimes, you guys; this happened yesterday and I started to get a post together, and then I had to run out the door and was actually busy-busy at work except for the little bit of time that I took to share that Necroma tickets thing, which put me further behind the 8 ball and now here we are, a day late but still:
I feel so out of touch that I can’t remember if I’d ever even pointed out the new single, but this is “Ichima Spring,” possibly, machine translation and all. What really matters is “pyon-pyon-pyon” and yes of course that’s in the song. Continue reading →
I didn’t intentionally not do anything with the latest video from The Idol Formerly Known as Ladybaby yesterday; one only has so much time, and priorities and juggling and whatnot, but I enjoyed having the bonus of perspective from people’s reactions to this one:
Happy Monday, amigos. Seeing as how quiet things had been lately in the idolverse, I had originally intended to make today a little introspective, a chance to look inward into the minds of the people who provide the entertainment that we all love so much. But now we can do that across a couple of days intead!
Today’s entry is none other than Kuromiya Rei, who was interviewed for IDOL AND READ a few months ago. Kayseur put together a very thorough translation for the piece, which runs the gamut from idle talk about relationships to her feelings about Ladybeard and her broad musical career, among a number of other topics.
On addressing her past
You can’t convey all of your feelings through text alone. Aren’t social networks nothing but a place to flatter your ego? Text isn’t enough, if you want to talk, you can just come meet me after our lives during the goodies sales, and if you can’t come, just call me out in the street! Judging people on looks alone isn’t very pretty. There are times when I talk a bit harshly and some where my tweets are a bit extreme, but I don’t want people to look at my words, I want people to look at the real me. I don’t want to be judged on my past, that’s why I deleted all of my tweets.
It’s Easter Sunday for the Christian world, and much of the world that connects to the Christian world, and even for lots of people who aren’t Christian at all but like to have an excuse to have candy, and while we could celebrate the happy re-birthday of Jesus of Nazareth with a little Living Dead I Dolls, I’ll aim instead for the more pagan/secular side of the celebration.
First up! MOAR RABBITS LAB, which has been out for a few days but I was sitting on because, come on, Easter:
I have no idea what the aims of this project are, but the girl can sing, so nbd. Continue reading →
