Welcome back to Saturday! Did you all have a good week? Mine was breathtakingly busy, and it’s technically still not done because being on the new side for a fancy-pants job like I do at Day Job can frequently mean being a responsible adult even when the work week is supposed to be over. How rude! However, I can’t keep Maniac Mansion festooned with the fancy trappings and filled with honorees if I quit now — and that’s to say nothing of the jamon iberico that I insist upon eating at every meal!
I jest, of course. If I were to keep Maniac Mansion filled with anything, it would be idols mid-U.S. tour who need a regional base of operations. Of course I’d have to move out or sleep in the basement or something, but: Worth it. Just imagine having Ricky Wilson complain that you’re all out of clean towels! A dream.
Anyway, I hope you guys have been paying attention, because while yours truly could barely keep his head above water, idol cranked up the pre-TIF intensity. Yes, things came out this week. Yes, there’s a new TIF guide. Also Papermaiden’s acquisition of the English rights to The Idol Suicides, which I cannot more recommend that you read (final installment runs today!). And, of course, the Fun; even if you don’t want to play, send Kerrie a nice message for her birthday.
It finally stopped raining around here, so other than some light housekeeping, I leave you goofballs to it. Stay out of trouble!
What Are You Implying?
It looks like our old pal Ten Tenko is gonna be an international star, insofar as anybody who burns CDs of traffic noises, voice modulators and oscilloscope beers can:
