A Friday Fun for Blatant Holiday Cash Grabs

Last week, Maniac took the wheel and had you #GiveThanksToIdol, of which I myself was very thankful for.

Well, it’s that time of year again, where Christmas commercials are totally unavoidable. But, is it just me, or have there been a lot more celebrity Christmas albums this year? Continue reading

A Very Thankful Friday Fun

Happy Friday! So our intrepid Weeaboo Woman (Kerrie) is up to her neck in getting the annual Best Of stuff properly organized for proper fan voting, hence you’re getting a very special edition of the Fun from yours truly. It’ll only be good for about half of the wit, but maybe we can make up for it with sheer earnestness!

First up, last week’s top entries for #IdolFitness — I sense a very distinct theme among our various workout regimens:

Now, fitness motivation is often an outcome of the holiday season — all the food and drink and simmering intrafamilial resentment — but we (Americans, and recently also Canadians) are genuinely supposed to express thanks and grace about the good things in our lives right now. Continue reading

Get Your Revisionist Fix in the Friday Fun

Last week, you let an AI do all the hard work for you!

I’m scribbling this down real quick, as I’m currently a mess at almost 5:00 a.m., looking at old tweets from three years ago about the BiS Reformation Audition (the first one, the 2016 one) for information to put on my little side-project, the WACKi.

Ah, sweet little Kerrie. Remember how I was the biggest SiS fan for exactly one day because that’s how long they lasted? Remember a time before the chaos of this year’s BiSgeddon, when GANG PARADE’s (relatively small, in comparison. They lost what, two people? That’s less than what BiS loses in a week!) repeated fallouts had become a running gag in this community? Times were so much simpler back then.

This nostalgia really got me thinking of things that could have been. If SiS actually survived. If Coco Partin Coco actually managed to get into BiS like everyone thought she would at the time? Then, I got a metaphorical light bulb over my head for this week’s fun. Continue reading

Idol’s Deus ex Machina Meets the Friday Fun

Happy November, everyone! Did you have a nice Halloween yesterday? I certainly had fun looking at this year’s batch of #IdolNightmares tweets!

A recent obsession of mine has been the website, Talk To Transformer. It’s a website where you can write any old nonsense and an AI will complete it for you. Great for autogenerating idol fanfiction! Continue reading

The Recurring Nightmare of the Friday Fun

Last week, it wasn’t me who ruined everything for once.

It’s the last weekend before Halloween, everyone! So, you know what that means! It’s time for our (sometimes) annual #IdolNightmares hashtag! What does that mean? Well, it’s all down to your interpretation! Continue reading

We Humbly Demand That You Kids Keep This Friday Fun Within the Boundaries of Good Taste

Last week Brian covered for me while my laptop was away for repairs and you all did beautifully!

Well, well, well, my first Fun back with a fully-functioning computer and I completely lose track of the week and forget to do the thing! Shame on me! It’s lucky that you guys are able to come up with insanely good ideas, otherwise I’d have you drawing idols in MS Paint again! Continue reading

This Week’s Friday Fun Sneaks Into The Movies! #IdolMoviePitch

Wow, last week’s Friday Fun was pretty beautiful! Kerrie once again fulfilled her role as the nexus of idol fan energy and nurtured some positive vibes. We all should occasionally remind ourselves that while we do indeed love idols, the interconnected family that is the fandom community is perhaps an equal, if not greater draw to what keeps us here. Last weekend was even better for that little love-in, and we should indeed take a bit of pride in ourselves and each other for this thing we’ve become a part of.

Alas, Kerrie is still suffering through her frustrating technical difficulties, so the fun is falling onto the substitute squad’s shoulders. Thanks to Daemon and his mad mind though, we’ve got a very fun….well, Friday Fun!

You know what we need in the movies these days? Less Moody-McMoody superheros and more idols! So that’s where you come in! Imagine you’re pitching your concept for an idol-themed movie to an executive or investor and use a tweet to sell it to us!

It can be an idol-specific storyline, or perhaps a remake starring your oshi, or just about any wacky (or serious) thing you can imagine! Tweet your #IdolMoviePitch and wait for the offers to flood in! We’re waiting and have millions of dollars ready to throw at you! (Okay maybe not, but how about a $7 box of Raisinets?) 

This Friday, We’re Going To Behave

Well, that sure blew up in ways that I should have prepared for!
