Pop has eaten itself and has a sugar high

Give me Choco! (SLYT) is the new single/video from Babymetal. Babymetal is what you get when a J-Pop Idol group goes full Death Metal. As the wikipedia article drily remarks, "none of the three members knew what metal music was before the inception of the band." Ear-meltingly metal and eye-meltingly kawaii, in a disturbingly perkygoth way, you can find more here, here, and here. [more inside]

Upgrade Your Nintendo 3DS’s Sound. [SLYT] "Of the variety of things one might find to complain about in regards to the Nintendo 3DS, the sound doesn’t immediately come to mind. It’s not great sound, mind, but there are a litany of things that are more obvious. Thanks to one intrepid inventor, however, you are now just a series of tubes, clips and metal funnels away from awesome sound. Now, in order to figure out the exact combination of these things you’ll need to translate the instructions from Japanese." [Via].
