    bruise-idled?

    a.)What does bruise-idled mean? I cannot find the meaning of that word in a dictionary.

    "You are no longer making soft focus art for a bunch of bruise-idled, brain fried pop stars!"

    b.) I'm not sure about the meaning of soft focus art as well. What is it?

    One of those effects is called "soft focus," where the graphic takes on a little bit of a haze. This effect is easy and it looks great on cards and sentimental pieces.Slick Tricks - Page 2
    I have no idea what bruise-idled means.

    Maybe it's an AmE way of saying 'covered with bed-sores' (sores that develop on the skin of a patient who stays in bed for weeks or months). It's not an expression I've met.

    Re: bruise-idled?

    It could mean drunk or someone who has been drinking too much for years and damaged their brain.

    Yes - with Tdol's correction. I withdraw my conjecture - 'booze-addled; is much more likely. 'Addled' on its own refers to a mixed-up and damaged brain.
