Good morning? Feeling spooky yet? I’m going to make a point that I’m also making at least one other time in posts today — idol Halloween is going to be weird this year. I’m actually putting more effort than usual into prepping here at Maniac Mansion. I need something creative to do, after all! For mental health reasons, I decided to just lean into the deeply disturbing world around us, at least until Christmas, and wouldn’t you know, it makes me want to make things. Weird.
Anyway, idol Halloween may be atypically atypical this year, but it seems like everybody’s in on the season. Between new releases and because-we-cans and there being a lot more lives these days, there’s just an absolute butt-ton of idol stuff this week. Dig in, friends!
Show me something better for Halloween season than GARUDA live clips:
I, uh … what?
