Happy Saturday! I’m on my way to work — I know — but I’m still kind of stoked. Why? Because when you get to work for the organization that handles Day Job stuff these days, going to work on a Saturday means going to hang out in the woods with cool, visionary people and talk about highfalutin notions. I’m genuinely looking forward to it.
The week that was, that was a good one. And release season is still revving up! There are many many many albums and singles and videos and elsewise yet to come between now and when things start to finally cool off in December. Yes, this is a great time to be an idol fan, and that’s to say nothing of Halloween being in the mix.
This is your Weekender. Specifically, it’s the 97th Weekender. Considering that I started to do it as a way to post less and Team Homicidols is still keeping up a pretty good clip, and this thing is the ever-recurring monstrosity that it’s become, I’m a little surprised. Also proud, in the way that you might be proud of a really loud burp. It’s kind of neat. And I may as well get it out of the way that I’m hoping to commemorate the impending 100th edition with something fun and exciting. It only seems right.
Well. This week. #97. Big ol’ Weekender. Get caught up. Go play the Fun (which is yet another in Kerrie’s incredible run). And if you get a chance, go hang out in the woods with cool people, because ’tis the season.
Go Ahead and Rub It In, You Jerk
Raise your hand (and collect your winnings) if you thought that Ten Tenko would be the ex-BiS member to get major Western music exposure:
The ex-idol's first solo release outside of Japan, which you can listen to right now, is catchy, blissful, and brilliantly inventive. https://t.co/YuBMMZTmE3
