How’s it going out there, team? It could not be a more perfect autumn weekend lined up here at Maniac Mansion, so of course I’m going to be spending it doing things that are not just not particularly seasonally appropriate, but are also not terribly enjoyable. Like doing a full system flush on the Maniacmobile! Great times.
Idol’s been in a weirdly doldrums kind of state lately, but the Weekender is oddly full of goodness. Take your time with this one, play the Fun, see if you share in my existential terror that idol+heaviness is in decline, and find time to have a nice, big glass of cider. You deserve it.
Well That Was Equanimous Of You, Maniac
Hey, remember MNL48? And how a bunch of people supported Shazy, who kind of dropped off the face of the planet I think? Well, we have another chance: Osie, who you may have encountered on Facebook, has decided to audition in a BiS shirt and doing her best hengao. We are obligated to support this person! Create an account on the MNL48 site (it’s easy, but you do need to fake a real Filipino phone number), and give her some likes!
