Hello my friends! And also detractors and possibly enemies! How are you? I recently did a number of things that I’d never done before (home repair and maintenance stuff) and, while a few of the tasks were a struggle at first, I found them settle into a comfortable groove and and was able to not just get the job done, but now I’m kind of hankering to do more of it. Unfortunately, the thing about plasterboard walls, for instance, is that you shouldn’t just up replace panels because you’re bored or want more practice. The same can be said for bathroom tile, laminate flooring, etc.
The best exception to the rule? Paint! You can change the look of a room in a comparable hot minute with just a handful of tools, a gallon or two of pigmented latex and the time and willingness to do the job. I’ve been painting for years, but these latest projects have me trying out new techniques and trying to get more creative with borders and alternating panels and the like. It’s in the details that the difficulty comes in, like when you get it into your head that the walls of your finished basement should bear some … well, I’ll show you when it’s done, which could be a while.
But the point! It’s the weekend. It’s usually a great time for DIY projects, but forget all that. Let’s have fun instead. You, you can decide on what’s fun for you, but I hope it includes playing the Fun (which I haven’t even gotten to yet!) and giving some of the items below a crank. You owe it to yourself!
He’s a DIYer Now?
For real, pour one out for one of the guitar kami, Fujioka Mikio:

This is what being a WACK fan does to your brain:
I just thought, isn’t Pour Lui’s grad taking place the same show the swap-back ceremony is supposed to happen?
And its around the same time as the end of the WACK audition too, right?

@homicidols Thoughts? Remember that “BILLIE IDOL” event right. Lui never stated “retirement” from Idol but “graduation from BiS”. Saki & Aya trade is over around the same time. Aya proved leadership in GP. Pan Luna assumes lead in BiS. Lui/Saki join BI. BI renames to BILLIE IDOL.
