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Withdrawn Wednesday #11

WELL WELL WELL, it appears that Withdrawn Wednesday publishing duties fall to ol’ Maniac this week!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

A Friday Fun for Switching Favorites

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

This Friday Fun Is Not an HR Violation

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

Withdrawn Wednesday #9

Thank goodness for my co-writers, after forgetting about Withdrawn Wednesday for way longer than it needed to be yet again, they’ve taken it upon themselves to poke me and cry “Um, Kerrie, what about ___!?” and now this belated post has once again been saved from becoming yet another BiS roundup. Although there’s plenty of that still there of course!

Former Idol Renaissance Maina released a new music video.

Battling Oshiloss with Hope This the Friday Fun

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
