[Maniac: This post is why I don’t give Kerrie self-publishing privileges. Nonetheless, the @weeaboowitch asks, the @weeaboowitch gets.]
Hey everyone, its me again! Where was I last week? I was at Wack HQ pestering Watanabe to make the BiSwagon a reality and turn it into a travelling circus. My Japanese isn’t too great, but I think he said something like “Get the fuck out of here before I release Lui from her idol dungeon!” I think he listened though, because have you heard that circus-y theme of the new BiS song? 😉
Last week Maniac took over in my absence and did a better job than I ever could. Last week he asked you to swap around some idols. Don’t think I wasn’t paying attention. Not only did I relay your ideas to Watanabe before I heard the fearsome growling of a hungry twentysomething idol leader, I came up with a couple of my own, too! Lets see the best of all the submissions!
[Maniac: I won’t even pretend that Kerri’s top entry wasn’t the winner by far.]
Now this week, we’re gonna ask you to turn up that smooth jazz, put on something a little more comfortable and contact your nearest Tenga supplier because this week we’re getting all sick and twisted and erotic in here! Continue reading
Hello gang! There’s a completely different gif party planned for tomorrow, but I’ve been remiss in helping Kerrie get the word out about a special Halloween project (in addition to the various other seasonal doodads going on):
So! If you’re on Twitter, tweet spooky, scary, intense, Halloweeny videos to @weeaboowitch (now a very appropriate handle); if you’re not on Twitter, you can add them to the comments here. Continue reading
I am a man of my word. The other day, Kerrie said to me, Maniac, I’m far too important a person to do the gif party, so it’s up to you to get it done. And I said, Kerrie, you go ahead and be important, I’ll take care of everything. And then I realized that it’s my damn website anyway and if there was going to be a gif party, I needed to be responsible about it.
So! You know how these things work by now. I am, however, also somewhat pressed for time between work and house stuff, so I’m going to un-gif the gif party and instead take us in a similar thematic direction to the kinds of weirdness we’ve been doing, but simplify the medium. This might be what you kids would call a meme party.
The theme? #IdolSwap. Think about some of your favorite idols. Now think about some of your favorite groups. Now think about how your favorite group might benefit from having another favorite swapped in. Like so, in the banner!
That is so mean
So that’s the assignment. I was originally going to limit it to one switch per group, but then I thought, let’s see just how creative people can get. Mix and match. Make a group better; make a group worse. Hell, develop a super group of your own. Just remember to use the #IdolSwap hashtag on Twitter and/or post entries in the comments here on or Facebook.
I’m welcoming back Kerrie against my own good sense; if you saw the conversation yesterday about idol fanfic and where that wound up going, you’ll understand. Nonetheless! Remember that you can get unique idol-inspired gear at her Redbubble.
Happy Friday, everyone! Or should I say, unhappy Friday, considering the theme of our last gif party.
That’s right, lets all get comfortable in our wota bunkers and check out the best of last week’s #idolpocalypse!
[Maniac: Joke’s on you all — I was the only person who made anything! So I’m picking my favorites.]
This week’s feed:
Kerrie continues to tolerate my shenanigans — I swear, she’s starting to like this stuff. Remember to hit her up on Redbubble for your own unique idol merch!
Happy Friday, everyone! How was your week?
Last week’s gif party theme was #Badassbabymetal, in honour of Babymetal’s glorious performance at Tokyo Dome that didn’t bring any announcements whatsoever, but hey, at least nobody is graduating yet. Last week’s best gifs are below; for this week …
Speaking of graduations, this week’s theme is somewhat of a somber note. Why are all the idols disappearing at once?! If it’s not Saki leaving Guso Drop, its Tsubasa Fly and Koutei Camera Girl Zwei disbanding, and whatever the hell is going on with GANG PARADE at the moment. I can’t even blame the BiSwagon this time around. Zombidol on the other hand…
So this week, we want you to post your favourite gifs of either of these categories under the hashtag #idolpocalypse:
- Iconic moments from graduated (or soon-to-be graduated) members
- Units at the brink of disbanding … and the moment we knew
- Idol is (kinda) dead: Killing, being killed, playing dead, etc.
- Idols doing things that would get them killed — pranks, jokes, etc.
Here are a few examples:
Hopefully next week’s theme will be more cheerful! #idolpocalypse
Many gifs serve many purposes
Check out all the cool work we did!
Kerrie’s really mad at me for basically begging her to lead another Gif Party this week. And then she did it nonetheless! What a sport. Remember to check out her Redbubble store.
Doomsday is upon us.
Well, actually according to the Daily Mail, Doomsday was supposed to happen yesterday, but since when are the Daily Mail right about anything, so lets just jump into it.
This week, to celebrate Babymetal’s tour finale at the humongous Tokyo Dome, this week’s gif party theme is #BadassBabymetal! Twitter, Facebook, comments here, whatever. Exactly what it says on the tin: We want your gifs of Babymetal being badass AF:
Or maybe just adorable: Continue reading
We’re a talented bunch; whether it’s putting together the BiS Audition Hunger Games to imagining the strange dystopia of #StateOfIdol2020, we’re great at turning our love of idols into fun, interesting things. Alula Sumendap, who you may know on Twitter as @babytarantula, is contributing some cool illustration work.
I call her first submission Hanako-san at Her Cutest. Continue reading
