Your Homicdols Weekender #331

Hey gang. This will be a truncated version of the Weekender as I am out traveling with family far from Casa de Homicidols. It is also a historic Weekender as it is the first ever composed entirely on mobile. However, after publishing a Saturday digest of alt-idol happenings for 330 consecutive weekends, I feel something of an obligation to ensure that this streak remains unbroken (at least until we hit issue #444 at which point, I believe, Hanako-San murders me in the toilet). So, while my family sleeps in, I will tap out as much as I remember of what happened this week in idol.

End of an Era of TERROR: Most of KAQRIYO Out

I know we have been more of a blog (our true self, really!) and less of a news site in 2022. It was a weird year and timeliness regarding idol news just couldn’t be  a priority, unfortunately.

However, it is with a heavy heart that I figure I should use the event mentioned in the title as sort of wrap-up of the notable things that have happened in the last few months with Codomomental. Grab your tissues and let’s get to it.

Your Homicidols Weekender #302

While Daemon is living his best life seeing MELON BATAKE A GO GO, I’m in charge of the weekender!

We published a trilogy of articles having Nonamera as a pivot: one about her solo album, one on KAQRIYO TERROR’s newest release and finally, a piece of Kyunchi’s collaboration with her. That’s a whole lot of content for a week!

But what else happened in the idol world?

It’s a Nonamera world, we’re just living in it.

“That girl thinks she’s the queen of the neighborhood

I got news for you, SHE IS”

Have you seen these lyrics from Bikini Kill’s Rebel girl? Clearly, Kathleen Hanna was prescient and wrote this song before the girl that would become Nonamera was even a concept in either of her parents’ mind. I’m kidding, of course, please don’t send me hate mail. This apparte and Bikini Kill have little to do with the musicality of Nonamera’s first solo release, and yet they are absolutely applicable to the blonde pixie.

The background is a deep lavender gradient becoming a teal blue, with magenta pink in the middle. It's the album cover. The visual is Nonamera's head, with an abstract photomontage coming out of the top of her head, as well as a separation just under her nose, with water coming out of it. The title "My Name is..." is written in caps and the font style is ballons-like, with a chrome/metallic impression.

Since said mini-album was just released, why don’t you hop in to read what we think of it?

CHOO-CHOO! All Abord The Wack Train!

When Kerrie spread word of the WACK train, I had to say, I was intrigued.

Did WACK make their own version of Joshi Kashimashi Monogatari?

Look out for KING SARI’s imminent debut!

At Homicidols, we try not to post about a unit before they release anything. After all, how many groups have looked extremely promising and yet disbanded with nary even a CD-R in sight? But this upcoming group has so much backing we had to mention it.

Created as the official rival group to Anthurium, King Sari, despite what its name suggests has nothing to do with ex-Necronomidol members nor a very talented soloist currently active. However, while they had their member preview which did include a (now former) Anthurium member, our excitement lies especially in the presence of this young lady:

You guys, it’s time we talk about Leiwan!

We created a Discord server.

On Saturday morning someone asked for the link to our Discord server so we thought, “Oh, that’s an idea,” and created one.

Here’s an invite link if you would like to join: Homicidol’s Discord Server

Your Homicidols Weekender #261

Hello and welcome to this week’s Homicidols Weekender! If you don’t know me I’m Cal and I’ve never written one of these before despite being here for 2 years. So um… hello!

As we move in to the end of the year it’s almost time for, you guessed it, end of year lists! Almost that is. We’ve got a few things to squeeze in before things are finalised because our favourite unending profit generating machine is still pumping out content for us to consume. And consume we shall! Content around here has been a little sparse for the past fortnight because various team members, unfortunately, have lives outside of the idolosphere. But, that’s one of the great things about being an idol fan, something is constantly happening!  Even when we can’t write, you guys are constantly tuned in to your favourites, posting about your favourites, informing us about your favourites.  Aint it wonderful?

That was a wee bit of a tangent but hey, Maniac liked to ramble so let’s consider this my turn to fan the flames. A lot happened in the past week, so let’s get into it.

Your Homicidols Weekender #253

It’s the weekend before TIF and over here at Homicidols house we’re all still bracing ourselves for a world without BURST GIRL. I’d say it’s been a rough year for disbandments but, let’s get real, it’s always a rough year. That is the ephemeral and transitory nature of idol, the genre we have voluntarily consigned ourselves to. But even with the ever looming sense of loss, we also reside in perpetual hope, for every time idol shuts a door, it opens a window.

Because, sure, one day we might lose a beloved unit, but the next day someone like CHICKEN BLOW THE IDOL comes back!!
