Here’s a Bunch of Cool Stuff from Guso Drop’s ZEPP Live

Well, gang, Guso Drop may be on its last legs as a project, but the show was definitely still going on, at least in terms of their ZEPP Tokyo show last night. I was going to just let it ride on out into the sunset, but, looking through Twitter and YouTube, I also wanted to be able to memorialize it to some extent.

A ZEPP show is a big deal! Q’ulle, who legitimately tour internationally and have many many more followers than Guso Drop, have a tough time selling out ZEPP performances. They’re large venues, capacity in the low thousands, and they cost a lot to book and require a host of other incidental expenses (gear, etc.) that you, Idol Manager, might not face in other clubs, or at least not to the same extent.

So, for posterity, here’s some cool stuff: Continue reading

Zero-chan Says Play the Friday Fun or Get Your Ass Whooped

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 #ReiSays and #零ちゃん大喜利大会 and let’s see if the reception will be as entertaining as #YuraSmile!

When Guso Drop Met Malcolm Mask McLaren

First! Remember, we’re doing #PainfullyViolent on Monday. This is important. Read that to see what you need to do to take part.

Now, let me put this out there to start things off: “Malcolm Mask McLaren” here is Guso Drop, albeit in their compatriots’ gear, and yes, this appearance at a Village Vanguard store the other day is genuinely odd:


Good one, Terry!

I haven’t looked very hard, but Guso Drop as Malcolm Mask McLaren is basically getting two cool punk units in one, so no real complaints. Continue reading

It’s Time for a #PainfullyViolent Campaign to Support Guso Drop

Hey team! As you know, Guso Drop’s latest (and maybe-greatest-but-definitely-grossest) officially drops in a couple of days — let’s show them the same level of love that we’ve shown BiS and PassCode and NECRONOMIDOL! Brian again is the mastermind, so get your instructions from the man himself:

For anybody who’s reading this, I have no doubt that just like me, you love this music, but, also like me, I suspect that participating in the fandom is a big reward as well. At times, I think that the fun of fan interaction and participation rivals the very subject matter that bonds all this […]

It’s a Thursday Hurtsday Family Reunion!

You know what’s really satisfying about having put together a few thousand posts about a few hundred idols? It feels like there’s always something to talk about, even something new. I started dedicating little content spots over the course of the week to regulate that a bit. Thursday Hurtsday, though, can be a little difficult to meet up with, to the point that I sometimes have to stretch the concept to make it work.

Fortunately, this week has a bunch of really loud stuff!

The other night, the A-minor family (well, most of it, the part of the family under Daichi) did a bill all together, and one familiarly helpful YouTuber captured and uploaded the entire blessed thing: Continue reading

I’ve Been a Bad Maniac This Week, So I’ll Make It up to You

Hey gang!

I’m finally back from the traveling and conferencing and stuff, and I stopped for a second to realize that, , we haven’t done any of the regularly themed daily posts! Zounds and gadzooks!

So let’s go ahead and make amends: Here’s something perfectly acceptable for WTF Tuesday and Indie Idol Wednesday in one fell swoop:

The ‘Painfully violent’ Video Is Here!

It feels like half of idol is sending out news and whatnot today — my queue for the week is getting ridiculous, and it’s only just noon — but I’m jumping over my own line to make sure that you all see Guso Drop’s latest.

The Heaviest Idol in the World deserves as much. Continue reading

It’s a Lazy Weekend, So Here Are Some Video Teasers

It says “lazy weekend,” but my goodness was it a dull week, too. I’ll put it this way: I judge the overall strength of everybody’s interest in what’s going on by the amount of traffic that comes through these parts, and I have FANCY MATHEMATICAL FORMULAE to account for crazy business like the Corenament, so as long as certain baselines are being hit or surpassed, or the baselines are being consistently beaten (and therefore should be adjusted), I feel like I’m doing my job and idol is good and interesting and great.

This past week, though … I mean, at this point, I shouldn’t be struggling to find content to share, you know? I follow what feels like half of idol, friends are always sending over referrals, the Facebook groups and whatnot are going strong. There’s always something. Except when there isn’t! Like what happened this week! Or, at least, less than we’d like to be able to see.

Ergo, while I completely quietly made an editorial decision a little while back to not push out video teasers as main posts a little while ago (BECAUSE THERE’S SO MUCH STUFF JUST WAIT FOR THE REAL THING, MANIAC!), instead preferring them for the Weekender, I am immediately going back on that because dammit, we all need things to enjoy, even a little bit. It’s Saturday. It’s spring (except for you goofs in the Southern Hemisphere). We want loud idol stuff! Continue reading

Beautiful Things Happen When Idols Are Friends

I had somewhat grandiose plans to celebrate this amazing juncture of NECRONOMIDOL and Guso Drop, but life intervened with a vengeance over the last couple of days, and ol’ Maniac just plumb ran out of time to do it well. Fortunately, John was on the case.

Honestly, if this doesn’t get Collaboration of the Year, something (especially) terrible is wrong with the universe.

Sometimes things come together in great ways. Who remembers the old Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup commercials? What goes together as well as chocolate and peanut butter? Well, it seems NECRONOMIDOL and 偶想Drop do, as was seen last night at their 2-man live: 『暗黒混沌GIG』.
