Your Homicidols Weekender #319

It’s the last-day-of-the-year edition of the Weekender and I am tapping this out in a hotel room in Tokyo as I tick off an item on my bucket list, namely, to spend New Years Eve in Japan. I have only been here a couple of days, but I have already caught Hanako-San, situasion, Ringwanderung, Night Owl, Kolokol and MIGMA SHELTER. I have a lot of catching up to do after being away for almost three years. This is a long-winded way of apologizing for the Weekender being a bit lighter than usual, but I will still try to hit the big stuff.

Happy New Year, everybody!
