Wow, what a week! Maniac’s back, Miss iD got a whole boatload of familiar faces on deck (more on that later, hopefully!) and earlier today my cat managed to catch and eat a butterfly whole! Oh, and all this great stuff too.
PS: The opinions expressed here do not reflect the entire Homicidols writing squad.
It may be a minority opinion, but allow me to emphatically say out loud that BLACKNAZARENE is dumb and boring and you should stop supporting this farce:
I think Maniac can put in a more comprehensive review of this video!
Hamidashi Paradise is a memorable music video for me in more ways than its memorable choose-your-own adventure style; it was my first real exposure to You’ll Melt More! aside from them occasionally sprouting up in my music feed and making me go “well, that was nice!”.
On a week that was either turbulent, or boring, depending on who you ask, we still have idols to tide the week by.
What exactly happened this week, you ask?
Well, for starters, have you noticed some of the recent overhauls to the site lately? Everyone give a big round of applause for Daemon, who made all of this (as well as a lot of this weekender) possible!
And screw it, why not clap for this stuff too:
MAMESHiBA NO TAiGUN are now an edamame themed unit, or something.
Let’s take a look at the biggest style icons of last week.
This week is another fun where you need to climb into the mindset of an idol. Whether that be your oshi, or idols in general. For this week, you’re going to tweet like one! Better get that impersonation talent going because someone’s gonna have to fill the void if Kamiya Saki deletes twitter after her graduation today!
So, think like an idol, and then tweet like an idol, with the oh-so-original hashtag, #TweetLikeAnIdol.
I don’t know about you, but some of these idols somehow managed to look even cuter with facial hair.
Calling the past several months in BURST GIRL land a rollercoaster ride would be undermining it just slightly. Starting with the farewell of original member and Guso Drop refugee Rei, the additions of two fresh-faced young newbies, the sudden loss of one of said newbies and having dozens of shows cancelled for obvious reasons. Despite all this, BURST GIRL have just shrugged it off and kept their stride, announcing a new single, and, last night, a new member.
Well, the term “new” might depend on how loosely you define such a term. You thought BURST GIRL was done employing Guso Drop alumni? Nope! Say hi to Wakapiku! Again!
When the week’s news slips through the cracks, The Weekender catches it for a feature we call The Weekender.
Rei, Michelle and Okaki (formerly of NECRONOMIDOL) shared some big news with us.
Even the idols themselves (okay, one idol) accidentally got involved last week!
This week, we’re going to watch a load of music videos!
Specifically, we’re going to watch music videos, and take out anything that might seem bizarre, hilarious or concerning and share them without context!
Let’s face it, there are enough idol MVs out there that make no sense even with context. So this should be easy!
This week’s hashtag is #OutOfContextMVs!
This article was a bit delayed due to sickness, so sorry to all 99% of you who know about this by now!
As many of you know, Pour Lui has seemingly been repeating 2010 in 2020, first releasing a (pretty darn good!) solo album, then going on to form her new group.
Anyway, we got the solo album, time to see the group! Meet PIGGS:
(We knew Pour Lui was borrowing WACK resources for this, did that include the artist for the GANG PARADE split groups’ logos?)
How’s lockdown holding up? Are the outdoors even recognizable at this point? This weekender was almost cancelled just because I forgot what day of the week it was! Nonetheless, I hope life is treating all of you well. Take it easy, stay indoors and take a look at this long week’s highlights. Oh, and do the fun too if you want to kill some time in a silly way.
WACKxAvex buddies BiSH and EMPiRE both released digital singles on the same day.
