Hi everyone! It’s been a while. Truth be told, I’ve been having computer troubles at home, so I’ve ended up having to significantly reduce how much content I’ve been able to write until further notice (which I’m sure all of you are very happy about!).
Thankfully, the rest of the team have been doing a fantastic job without me, with last week’s Friday Fun by Brian being one of the most successful ones yet!
Now, with how much fun last week’s challenging fun was, I wanted to do another fun that makes all of you think, laugh and go “god damn it, why didn’t I think of that?”. I wasn’t sure what to do though, until I saw this video appear in my YouTube recommendations.
Thanks Barshens! (And RIP)
Now, this shamelessly-copied fun takes a few steps:
- Dig through your collection of idol photos and find two photos of different idols
- Go onto morph thing (or any other site that lets you morph faces into one, if there is one) and morph your two idols into one beauty! (Or monstrosity?)
- Post your brand-new idol onto twitter, with the hashtag #Idolstein
- Wait and see who guesses correctly!
Here’s an example I made earlier this week to start with.
Wow, it’s Friday again, huh? Team Homicidols has been combining our minds together to help with the Friday Funs since Kerrie’s laptop went down, and one thing I think we’ve learned: Creating Friday Fun is actually pretty tough! Kerrie’s been doing this for quite a while now and when you realize how much effort she puts into entertaining us by dreaming up activities for the pre-weekender, it’s quite an impressive feat. But anyway, the crew came up with a new one and I think you’ll all have a good time with it!
But first, last week’s Fun was near and dear to us on a personal level, since it brought together fandom and creativity through fan-art. It was the positive and supportive rally we were hoping for, and please keep in mind that we intend to keep #idoldoodles going well into the future! We’re hoping to revisit the theme on a semi-regular basis and share more fan-art as a Homicidols feature, so by all means keep your pencils/paintbrushes/digital tablets sharpened!
More #idoldoodles to come!!!
Okay, now for this fine Friday! Have you ever played Pictionary? We’re doing something similar to that where we’d like you to utilize images and place them together to create references to idols, song, titles, album titles, etc. You can create a sequence of images, or even a single image to allude to something in the idol world. And for extra fun, leave them unanswered so people can guess at them! Here’s an example that Daemon came up with… Continue reading
Happy Friday!!! I’m filling in for Kerrie this week, and I know I’m not nearly as much fun, but it is indeed Friday so at least I’ve got that much going for me!
So last week the theme was #BadIdolAwards, and with ground that fertile, there were some pretty darn funny responses…
Now for this week, we’re actually looking at something that goes beyond Friday for some fun, and hopefully continues well past the next week. This is an idea we’ve kicked around for probably close to a year now, and I think it’s time we got it rolling…
Last week, we had fun at the expect of one of my more recent best girls!
Summer’s almost over, huh? When I was a child, hearing those words filled me with dread and sadness; no more sunny weather? Back to school? Please, no! But, now that I’m an adult that dislikes children (excluding kids that I’m related to, and certain younger idols), and climate change is gradually turning the planet into a a ball of flames, I just feel relieved now. Autumn is my favourite season when it used to be my most disliked; the kids are back in school, it’s cooler, not to mention all the typical “white girl with an instagram” perks of Autumn like pumpkin spice and pretty falling leaves. Where am I getting at with this? Well, now that Autumn is creeping upon us, its also the time that we begin to take a closer look at our best-of list, and begin planning for our annual voting period in late November/early December. And with silly internet awards on the brain, why not come up with another last-minute Fun idea? Well, maybe I should have waited until the actual awards season, but who knows if I have to push out another #WackAuditionPredictions post by then?
So, think back, not just to the awards you know and love like the Oscars, but also stuff like the Kids Choice awards, or any award show that offers prizes for “sexiest actor” and “best onscreen kiss”. What exactly is the idol equivalent of such, arguably, insigificant awards? What would it be and who would win?
Think up some prizes to give out to deserving idols using the hashtag #BadIdolAwards and who knows, maybe we’ll steal some ideas for our own best-of?
Last week, not a single one of you actually took part in last week’s fun, so instead I’m gonna share the responses I got to the tweet I made asking about idol workouts instead:
Friday already? No problem!
You know what is a problem though? Those uncanny face swaps!
This is another instance where I forget what day it is and scramble through the old “Friday Fun Ideas Sheet” for anything useable. Well, let’s see… Continue reading
Last week we shaded Watanabe again, and also mourned everyone’s favourite boss who fired herself!
This week’s challenge really needs no explanation. It’s just something dumb, like every week. Ever wondered what one of your oshi’s faces would look like on the body of another oshi? Of course not, you’re normal! But I need something this week, so guess what, we’re swapping faces! At first, I thought “Yep, just put Himari’s face on Okaki’s and Okaki’s face on Himari’s it’s gonna look weird hahaha” but, I know you guys. You’re gonna go all out, putting innocent idol faces onto heads that really don’t deserve to be that cute and vice-versa. Continue reading
Last week’s fun was all about wanting your lost oshi to come back in some way or another!
I’m writing this fun in the midst of a heatwave right now. I’m so hot that I can barely think straight. Can’t even think of a witty thing to say about this and that thing. Might as well bring back an old favourite with a twist, then spend the rest of the weekend eating birthday cake and drowning my loved ones in my own sweat. Continue reading
Phew, lads! I almost had to dump this fun onto the other writers again, what with NECRONOMIDOL’S European tour this week as well as a few personal ups and downs and events and incidents, but insomnia thoughts won out in the end and I’m here! Now, let’s look at last week’s highlights:
Actually, this Fun is actually a little bit inspired by this week’s Necroma-charged antics. It’s the first time I got to see the new lineup in action, and it’s fairly known at this point that newbie Kunogi is the evolved form of Gokigen Teikoku’s Hibiki. Appreciating an idol in one group I love, losing her, seeing her re-emerge in my favourite group and then eventually meeting her in person after all this time? Pretty darn cool! Continue reading
Alright, alright, alright, you Yanks had your fun last week, but now it’s time to get back to the norm before an all-new Homicidols revolution takes place.
So, idols change their style all the time, right? Sometimes their old output just wasn’t working, sometimes they just fancy a change and other times everyone leaves at once and they have to suddenly rebrand. It happens. And when it does, it can often be hit-and-miss. Now, let’s not start big old fights about the “Orchestrafication” of BiSH or anything like that, but instead how about we experiment with new looks and styles for our favourite idols, then pray to a divine entity that these terrible results don’t happen for real!
