100 Days of Tsurezure, Day 83: Dominance

It looks like the Shibuya eggman one-man was a hell of a good time:

Wow, PiGU Absolutely Crushed This One

I’ll admit it, I was getting kind of annoyed with Osaka’s favorite cosplay cafe pop punk idols lately — Rino graduates, Momokan graduates, a little bit of live video trickles onto YouTube, but very little of note gets out publicly and I start to get kind of concerned because PiGU used to be good for a fresh single at the very least every few months, with MVs coming along basically whenever, and I didn’t go and get myself all invested in such a project just to have it die a typical idol death! No I didn’t!

Well shut my big stupid mouth. This is friggin’ great:

I Hope You’re Ready for a New Zenbu Kimi no Sei Da Album

If you are, maybe the world is.

Egoistic Eat Issues(!) will grace us with its presence in September. It will undoubtedly have enough synths to start a cosmetic surgery clinic in Napa. Continue reading

Your Homicidols Weekender #37

Hello friends! Have you enjoyed Queen of the Scene so far? I’ll warn you, the very first event for the real competition is going to be really dumb. Like, so, so dumb. I’m really looking forward to it!

It was kind of a quiet week overall, though, huh? Nothing like the one prior, which, woof. But, especially if you were a fan of Friends back in the day, check out the Fun, have a beverage of your choice and kick back, because it’s the friggin’ weekend and we’re having a nor’easter here in the Maniac neighborhood!

I Have a Feeling That You Put a Lot of Crap in Here, Maniac

Just as a note, Narasaki Yuri, or the Artist You Probably Remember as Kyuri from FRUITPOCHETTE Whose Actual Name Is Hard to Decipher, is back to solo activities* (still with Mad Magazine) and probably worth a follow. She even has a new website!

*This has nothing to do with the included blog post; I just wanted something visual

100 Days of Tsurezure, Day 82: Advice

Usually, when members of Not Secured, Loose Ends do the whole reply-via-RT thing with fans, it’s Komachi showing off just how … unique her brain is. But here, very importantly, is what I believe to be Shidare explaining to a fan who to do the whole crowd-surfing thing, or at the very least stay safe at a live:

Or I’m really wrong, which happens! Continue reading

Queen of the Scene Preliminary Final

In a safe, secure, very-far-from-fans video booth in the Mojave Desert, Homicidol Maniac speaks to a camera

The Queen of the Scene qualifying has come down to a single available slot that any of three different idols can earn, and they’re just about ready to go! Let’s get it o– wrestling! Continue reading

Friendly Friday Fun Fever!

Oh hey, would you look at that, I managed to pull myself away from Splatoon 2 and Guso Loss long enough to write this week’s Friday Fun!

Here’s last week’s entries:

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

Here’s a Wonder Lander Interview … en français!

I’m clearly not the only person in the West who likes idols and also likes to write about idols and who also wishes more people would get into Wonder Lander — Passion Idol, from the francophonie, is right there with me. Yeah, it’s in French, but that’s way easier to read via machine translation than Japanese. Also, give Gru! a follow!

Taper ce titre me fait l’effet d’une consécration. Maintenant que c’est dit, passons au reste, au plus conventionnel : bonjour à tous, je suis très heureuse de vous retrouver pour un nouvel article ! Celui-ci, bien plus que les autres, est assez spécial puisqu’il s’agit d’une Interview, format jusqu’alors inconnu au bataillon. C’est un petit […]

via Interview : Wonder Lander — PASSION IDOL

Also, because I will start breaking arms if more of you all don’t get behind Wonder Lander, I’m going to force-feed you this awesome playlist:

They’re great, okay!

100 Days of Tsurezure, Days 80-81: Slacktastic

I missed another 100 Days, and this time just because of regular work, not crappy external things. Oh well. We actually missed something cool (or you probably saw it anyway, whatevs):

New outfits! That look … different! Like Maison-Book-Girl-meets-BiSH different!


I’m trying to think of a quartet of Codomomental performers that wouldn’t be dangerously weird. Megumi, Mene, Tsuyame and one of the guys from Gauche? I really have no idea.

Another all-company show in two weeks!

All right. Members? Members. Continue reading

Stuff Like This Is Why Q’ulle Is So Cool

These videos were making the rounds yesterday after the former Danceroids released them and people all kind of collectively went OOOOOOHHHHHHH; I was too busy being a dumb jerk at work to share then, but I’m ready now!

So if you’ve picked up Q’ulle’s newest single, “DRY AI”, which you should have done because Q’ulle’s worth your time and money, you know “PARTY ROCK!!!!” already; if you have not, this song may be a new one for you:
