Batman Doesn't Care About Climate Change
|Amy Widdowson||May 26, 2017|
Happy Friday, darlings. Whether you’re frantically calculating the carbon footprint of Batman, or trying to figure out exactly how your ancestors survived in the wild swings of Calgary weather in May, I hope you have a restful end of your week. Today I plan on binge-listening to the Harry Styles album, which is really good IMHO, and respecting him for respecting his teenage girl fans. Fuck yea, oh he of the magnificent hair.
And for those who were working on the Montana special election, and are disheartened that the Democratic candidate lost to a reporter-punching, white supremecist-supporting tech billionaire, take heed what my friend Dorothy Pomerantz wrote on Medium this morning: Don’t Be Discouraged. Trump won Montana by 20 points, and they haven’t had a Dem congressperson since 1997 - this was a deep red seat. So stay true to your cause and keep calling.
Some stuff for ya:
Don't worry folks, Wired has you covered for the big existential questions
As a former graphic designer, Backchannel’s piece on How Fonts Are Fueling the Culture Wars is my nerd food. Wooo, Nazi font resurgence *grimace emoji*
Friend of the Missive Victoria sends in a discussion on the most delicate of office etiquette: Sh*t Talk: The Politics of Office Pooping.
Chris Pine still uses a flip phone and you know what? Not a deal breaker for me.
Munch ‘em if you’ve got ‘em: friend Alexander Basek wrote a delicious piece on The Best High-End Edibles in the Pacific Northwest.
Love you guys. See you next week :)
