Your Homicidols Weekender #106

Good morning! I won’t apologize for making mincemeat of kind of a weird week in idol — between Day Job and Major American Holiday, I’m surprised that I got this much together — but I do find myself wishing that I’d been able to follow up on a few more items. Upshot? A few actual post-posts to blog! Neato!

Speaking of Major American Holiday, the Fun covered #IdolThanks, so we get to focus on the next one upcoming. No, not Christmas. I’m talking about the 2018 Best Of stuff! There’s literally now less than a week left for 2018’s releases and events to qualify, or for something from December 2017 to emerge and shock us all, so think very hard about what’s been good and what’s been great and what left you weeping in a corner from the past year. Team Homicidols is handling the cut-down process this year so that nominations don’t take a month to work out, but that doesn’t mean that we won’t be making a final call with opportunities to get your favorites into the mix for the big awards.

And as for the week that was …
