Good morning! As I was putting together this Weekender, the fact that I had a few days off (and I mean, like, completely out of contact) really hit home. A hell of a lot happened! And yeah, I get to use this space to make up some of that, but I’m also going to drop a whole butt-ton of posts to compensate. I’ve been a lousy Maniac lately, and I feel like I should rectify a little bit.
Also reconnect. That’s important too.
Anyway, we’ve another great Fun to play, and look, it’s the last weekend of Official Summer, so do get the heck outside. I have a date with a winery!

Idol in Focus
This week’s entirely too opportunistic Idol in Focus is POPPING EMO, who I feel like I’m actually kind of re-doing, but whatever, I’m catching up for the second time in a month and I can’t keep track of all of the things that happened and I caught up to in a total binge. Sue me!
The idols, though, the idols.
POPPING EMO did this pretty fun thing:
Which took me back to this thing from last month:
I love that they’re making some moves and are much more noticeable — they’re a cool group, and I like when cool groups start to emerge a little bit.
