I Spent The Weekend Finishing Assembling My Reading Corner, So If I Go Off Radar, You Know Where To Check First.
’Tis the end of March, and I was reminded this weekend of the panic I felt about a year ago when I read that we might be stuck inside until the end of June.

What a difference a socially-distanced year makes.

And finally, Rolling Stone out there doing the (dark) lord’s work: We Asked Satanists What They Think of the New Lil Nas X Video.
That’s it, that’s all. Be kind to yourself, and keep wearing those masks!
