Yurapico launched her career as a solo idol just days ago and it’s already off to a fantastic start. The current member of APOKALIPPPS and former member of Guso Drop and BURST GIRL dropped the announcement of her solo project on Monday and has since held her introductory live and released two singles and two MVs.
Revisiting a Friday Fun Phenomenon
How’s it going everyone? Same old? Sure has been for me at least, because (excluding the ones that were announced last year) I just got my first major oshi graduation announcement of 2019! Whoo-hoo?
Idol fans: chained in the cave and only staring at the shadows of oshi on the wall. The more glow sticks you hold, the clearer the shadows. But you never see the real oshi.

I think it's BiSH that really make the biggest philosophical observation because in the end, aren't we all just looking for that ochinko? #MakeIdolDeep

Idol doesn’t exist. Songs you hear, performers you are seeing are manifestations of your desires for social acceptance. A perfect world that exists within your mind. When you think you are speaking to an idol in person you’re really talking to yourself in the mirror#MakeIdolDeep

Speaking of oshis however, you know who hasn’t graduated yet? Former Guso-now-Burst YuraPico, that’s who! In addition, her birthday just happens to be coming up this Sunday! And once again, her birthday event is named #YuraSmile of all things. Continue reading
Yeah New BURST GIRL Song Woo
In which our hero continues to share the things despite lacking energy to share the things like usual
New BURST GIRL song! Written by Yurapiko! This makes me happy in several ways, all of which are being subsumed by the awesome wall of humanity and shared passions that is sucking up all of my time and attention and life this week. And it’s only Tuesday!

Anyway, I have to ask: #YuraSmile wrote the lyrics, but who wrote the music? I ask because I want to know exactly how indie
Guso Drop BURST GIRL is these days, and to what extent they’ve embraced DIY. It’s a simple spectrum, ranging from Hatsune Miku at the one extreme and Beni making her own zines on the other. Yes, this is what keeps me up at night.
Pre-tales from the BURST GIRLS Debut
The post-Guso project calling itself BURST GIRL/S (I can’t get the nomenclature right) is hurtling, dare I say barreling toward its debut, and they’ve been making details known for the last little while. Why do I bring this up now? Because I can and I’m amused, and I want to have more of their tag in my library prior to the actual debut because SEO, bitches!
Anyway! Their Jan. 7 debut show is like Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner, minus the important-but-heavy-handed racial commentary and sheer magnetism of Sidney Poitier, and in fact nothing like that classic film at all save for my desire to use the title as a device!

That’s a pretty good lineup! Also, what an honor for BBTS and Candye Syrup; it’s not quite stepping up onto a ZEPP stage, but you could ask for much worse exposure to the people who are mostly likely to be your #Fans4Evar. That’s going to be a very loud show! Continue reading
