Good morning! You ever just have one of those days? Technically mine just started because it’s oh-dark-hilarious here at the moment, but I’m putting myself flush in the middle because it actually started yesterday afternoon. Ain’t really feeling it! But hey, it wasn’t the most exciting week in idol, either, so I don’t feel like I’m selling anything short here so much as, like, just kind of matching the mood. Go play the Fun, though; it’s scandalous!
Oh, Wow, That Was Fast

Idol in Focus
This week’s Idol in Focus is BiSH, of all things, for apparently regaining full control of their IP but still working with avex, as their long-dormant YouTube channel sprang back to life with a bunch of old stuff, a bunch of repurposed stuff and a bunch of stuff to come. It even has its own trailer!
But the real important thing is tomorrow’s YouTube live, which you may be able to watch here:
I want to live this one from IVOLVE more than I do:
O’CHAWANZ successfully completed their crowdfunding-for-an-album project an entire month ahead of schedule! You should still give them money, though:

In some ways, this live cut of RAY is beautiful and amazing; in other ways, it is terrible. I love it:
