Happy Halloween! Oh you guys, we made it. No matter what happens on Tuesday, no matter what happens after Tuesday, we have arrived at the single greatest day of the year. We have big plans here at Maniac Mansion, so forgive me for truncating things a bit more than usual so I can get out to wrap up my remaining to-dos and settle into scaring the living bejeezus out of neighborhood children and filling myself and the future missus and assorted friends with delicious sweetness. AND lots of booze!
Wherever you are, whatever you’re doing, I hope you also get to have a good time today/tonight. I also hope that the fact that the veil between the worlds of the living and dead is already thinning and will all but disappear come sundown doesn’t mean that you will soon be awash in spectral visitations by departed loved ones/mortal enemies, nor that we’ll have yet another incomprehensible disaster on the near horizon as literal chaos demons enter our plane to wreak still more havoc for their own amusement.
What a Day
Of all the various Halloween streams, this one feels like it would get just the right mix of elements:
I’m anticipating some big things this weekend, gang. Halloween things. Spooky things. In a perfect world, we’ll get all of the spookiest, creepiest, evillest idols conniving to turn out a series of MVs so terrifying and profane as to change the literal tilt of the earth’s axis; this not being a perfect world, we’ll still probably get a few instances of spooks and devils and the like, in a wonderfully idol way.
But who’d have predicted that we’d get our leader from the likes of … KOTO? Continue reading →
All righty, gang, let’s keep it short and sweet: We got some really cool and fun entries in the #IdolNightmare contest, the winner of which is set to have delivered NECRONOMIDOL’s NEMESIS on vinyl. There’s more here than my polling doodad will let me add because I’m cheap and won’t pay for premium, so voting happens in the comments; just write the number or description of what you think takes it (I’ll also accept vote-via-Twitter, I guess).
Happy Halloween everyone! I bring you the big thing I’ve been working on that wasn’t actually very big at all and Maniac hyped it way too much that now I feel bad. Just go look at the official Homicidols Spotify playlist if you want a much cooler gift from me.
But what Halloween is it without seeing something spooky? Unfortunately, this is an idol blog, so I can’t exactly write about Paranormal Activity or Five Nights at Freddy’s or whatever you kids are into these days, but I can bring you some appropriately spooky idol music videos! Some were submitted by you lovely readers, some I found myself. Lets go into the top 10 creepiest idol music videos! Continue reading →
Hello gang! There’s a completely different gif party planned for tomorrow, but I’ve been remiss in helping Kerrie get the word out about a special Halloween project (in addition to the various other seasonal doodads going on):
EVERYONE: I want you to tell me your scariest idol MVs (or moments within idol MVs) for a Halloween thing I'm doing.
So! If you’re on Twitter, tweet spooky, scary, intense, Halloweeny videos to @weeaboowitch (now a very appropriate handle); if you’re not on Twitter, you can add them to the comments here. Continue reading →
