Happy weekend! I’ll tell you guys, I desperately need these couple of days off — the past week was a monster, and the next will be too. It’d be great if I could just chill for a little while. It’s been almost two years since I could really do it this way, but I remember when Saturday in particular could very easily be a good ol’ fashioned day of nothing, and I’d catch up on things that I really wanted to, and at that point very literally just idol for hours. It was good stuff! And with it being a decidedly dreary day and most of my projects caught up, today would be a good candidate.
But no. No, a weekend visitor will soon descend upon Maniac Mansion, and entertainment and sustenance must be provided. Alas, my dream weekend will need to come at some other time! So let’s take what we can get from a pretty solid week of idol — I told you the season was heating up again! — and you should definitely play this week’s terrifying Fun if you have a minute.
May the Fourth Be With You

Idol in Focus
This week’s Idol in Focus is none other than NECRONOMIDOL, who finally had their first one-man with the new lineup on Tuesday. I had intended to share this promo ahead of that, but, well:

Most importantly are new stage outfits, apparently designed by Michelle:
But the most important thing will be their next album, also the first with the new lineup, coming in June:
