Babymetal – Eh? Ehhhhhhh ehhhhhhh ehhh? EHHHHHHHHHHH?



I originally interviewed the girls waaaaay back in November 2014 when they destroyed the Brixton Academy in London with one of the most ridic shows I’ve ever seen.

Brand New Idol Society Are Back – Kinda


As many visitors to my once world famous food blog know I almost poisoned myself cooking with Fairy Liquid.
