The Friday Fun That Keeps You Riveted to the Tabloids

How was your movie night?

This week’s fun has definitely been done before, but, frankly I don’t care, for two reasons:

  1. The last time we did this, it was way too much fun.
  2. By the time you’re reading this, I’ll be in an undisclosed location without any internet, probably without any furniture, and very likely crying while surrounded by boxes. Aka I’m moving.

Idol scandals are a weird thing. They can go from anything from “this idol just got arrested” to “this idol has a similar kind of love life as any other woman aged 18 to 25” to “this idol did literally nothing wrong, but the company she works for just committed a human rights violation.” They come out of nowhere, send the whole fandom aflutter with a mixture of rage and/or sympathy, and, as much as most of us would hate to admit it, are kind of fun to watch from afar.

A Friday Fun to Make Awards Season Much More Amusing

Last week’s fun made me emo.

Hey everyone, I’m back! I’ve been taking on-off breaks lately, partly because of IRL business and partly because last time I checked, twitter was nothing but an ongoing eruption of chaos and I frankly just didn’t want to ge involved with. Continue reading

A Friday Fun to Make Sure You Get What You Never Wanted

Last week, you pitched some movies that were too good for Hallmark to even consider.

Keeping with the Christmas theme, as it is the last Fun before the holiday after all, here’s a Fun that’s pretty much just #IdolNightmares recycled, but much like an unwanted Christmas present from last year, I’m just going to wrap it up and gift it to someone else because I can’t think of anything better to give!

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

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

Withdrawn Wednesday #11

WELL WELL WELL, it appears that Withdrawn Wednesday publishing duties fall to ol’ Maniac this week! Without Kerrie’s vengeful watchful eye and domineering enlightening presence, what kinds of shenanigans can we get into? Dare we … feh! To spoil this week’s Fun now would be as great a crime as has been committed in idol since maybe last week. So let’s play it straight and not risk Kerrie’s wrath.

Oshis! And other idols, ex and otherwise, who you may love but not necessarily totally oshi. They’re out there, gang, and just because they’ve gone to the big chika stage in the sky doesn’t mean that we can’t stay connected. This edition of Withdrawn Wednesday gets into just some of the ongoing activities of some of our very favorite people.

And if you don’t like it, take it up with Kerrie, because this still appears under her byline!

Co Co Co’s new project, Gordon, released their first MV.

Turning Idol in Commuter Reading in the Friday Fun

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
