We’re just a few days away from our #WorldDotmination effort, friends, and it really could not be easier to take part. You can also invite your friends to take part — after all, even the Darkness Girls are in love with Dots:
“But Maniac,” you say, “what if I have any of several frequently asked questions that will allow you to fill column inches to better justify creating a whole new post on this topic in such a way as to manipulate more participation in the latest fan effort?”
Hello everyone! Last week I asked you all dust off your GCSE Literature Anthology textbooks and come up with some idol poetry that would put Seamus Heaney to shame! And I took part in none of it because I’m an unimaginative dummy who’s still exhausted from reading so much Seamus Heaney in GCSE Literature! Let’s see what you came up with.
Fundraisers have always been a big thing, and a personal one for me, too; one of my first jobs was for a charity shop where I had to stand outside and harass people for donations, and just this year after losing my previous job I set up a Gofundme to help me get to the Necronomidol London show.
And it isn’t just me; everyone had encountered some kind of fundraiser at this point, whether its to raise money for a charity or just to pay for some dude’s potato salad. In the UK at least, we have Comic Relief and Children In Need, charities that hold big TV fundraisers every year (every two years for the latter) where celebrities appear and there’s usually some kind of charity single recorded by the hot new musical artist of that year full of celebrity cameos.
Sweet, now I can finally use Homicidols to fangirl over McFly, a band I’ve loved since the wee age of 12! And you thought my Hello! Project hijacking was bad. Continue reading →
This Here at Homicidols.com, we believe that one of the best ways to make more fans of idols is to lift up and celebrate those fans who are really doing it right. Take, for example, Bekah and Ashley, whose self-produced dance covers of essential idol videos prove just how fun this whole business is.
They released this cover of BiS’s “SOCiALiSM” —
— which was a nice reminder to catch up with their work. They’ve been busy! Continue reading →
Hello! Last week I asked you all to come up with your idol-themed anime ideas, and maybe pester Crunchyroll to translate the Backstage Idol Story anime. Well, the latter wasn’t successful, but hey, you came up with some quality plots last week, and that’s good enough for me.
This is going to be a short one. Mainly because I’m out of ideas and I already used Maniac’s suggestion for Idol Alignments a few weeks ago. But if there’s something you never fail to assist me with, it’s Friday Fun suggestions, and I love you for that! Continue reading →
Similar to last week, this week’s hashtag is related to TV. Only this time, instead of playing around with the naming theme of an existing show, you’ll actually be coming up with your own show ideas! But first, some backstory that isn’t needed at all, but I need to make sure this article is actually more than two sentences long, so roll with it. Continue reading →
You know what today is? Well, the day this gets published, anyway. It’s the day after my birthday! I’m officially way too old to ever have my imaginary idol debut! But I’m at my peak for graduation! Yay.
So how about a more personal-ish theme this week? And by personal I mean let’s refer to a TV show that pretty much defined my teenage years, some obscure 90’s show called Friends. Continue reading →
Editor’s note: Kerrie drafted this very early in the week. When I contacted her yesterday to ask if she wanted to revise it in the wake of the worst news so far this year, her only response was a random, jumbled collection of all-caps letters and numbers. Because I think she can currently only express herself by mashing a keyboard and incoherently crying out into a loveless universe, I’m leaving her original as-is. Marvel at the sudden anachronism!
Hi everyone! As of writing its almost midnight, I’m listening to an online vaporwave radio station to relax myself into sleeping (that Homercidols stunt came from love, you know!) and to block out the neighborhood douchebags having their nightly drunken arguments, and a song just came on of some announcer dude rambling in Japanese, and amongst this Japanese rambling I managed to catch the gairaigo “passcode” and I was like “Heh. PassCode.”
Can you tell I’m half-asleep?
Anyway, in that brief moment I had the realisation “Hm, on that note I should probably get the next Friday Fun ready ASAP because Splatoon 2 comes out on Friday and I’ve been waiting months for this, nothing is going to be able to drag me out of squid hell to do anything productive in the coming days” so, here we are.
We actually had two things going on this week! Our main Friday Fun and a mini-Fun, which I guess would actually be called a Tuesday Fun?
First, the best of #IdolMerchNoOneWants aka can you guess which of these products I would actually buy?
Do you think it’s been too long since I used a Friday Fun to make fun of the WACKy old fool himself Junnosuke Watanabe? Or has it been too recent? I can’t actually remember. But whatever, I was looking at the new BiSH merch and what the hell is this? Continue reading →
Hello everyone! I just got back from my trip to see Necronomidol as of writing. I had an absolute blast! Amazing show, meeting Necroma is an experience that I will never forget, and I also got to meet and hang out with a good portion of you! Big thanks to those who helped to get me up there and those who said hi and just made this whole experience the most fun I’ve had in hell knows how long, I love you guys! Let’s hope Ricky keeps to his promise of sending Necroma to Britain again so we can do this again! Or if any of you happen to be at Juice=Juice later this year, which unless their recent line-up change also brings a new look and sound as Hello!Pro’s first JuiceMetal idols I doubt I’ll be writing about that here
Last week’s Friday Fun, we literally put words into Zero’s mouth!
Hello! Well, there’s so much going on, so lets get to something important first.
Necronomidol’s UK show is this coming Tuesday and I couldn’t be more excited! I just want to thank everyone again for helping me get to the show. Those who donated or even just shared my Gofundme, my store or my commission posts. You’re awesome and I love you all so much!
Now, on to the main point: [MANIAC REDACTED!]
Now, after that public service announcement, here’s the best of last week!
Today’s Friday Fun is very, very similar to last week’s #WhatLuiIsThinking. What can I say, these idols are literally handing over these opportunities to us! This time it’s a special request from everyone’s favourite raspy-voiced idol boss, Rei!
It’s only fair. She not only tweeted the above image yesterday, but she was also one of the girls who brought attention to #YuraSmile to the Japanese side of the fandom by tweeting her response. Unfortunately, I can’t seem to find that tweet now, but she was amused. So it’s only fair that we meme her up too!
Tweet your edits with #ReiSaysand#零ちゃん大喜利大会 and let’s see if the reception will be as entertaining as #YuraSmile!
