PSA: There Is Nothing But The New CRJ Album. All Else Is A Distraction.
|Amy Widdowson||May 21, 2020|
MY DARLINGS, THIS IS NOT A DRILL: Carly Rae Jepsen dropped a NEW ALBUM TODAY and I am dancing in my chair while I write this. And you know what that means: CRJ CONCERT PHOTO TIME (hey, remember when we went to concerts? Sob.)
And if you’re questioning whether or not my enthusiasm is an act of any kind, here’s a reminder: this is me after I acquired my now-favorite t-shirt at the above concert I attended with friend of the Missive Katelyn last year.
Have you grabbed your tickets to next week’s first ever virtual bi-coastal Odd Salon? Join us for Odd Salon: RESILIENT! Tickets are FREE, though if you decide to to purchase a ticket to support Odd Salon during our unexpected hiatus, THERE BE PERKS.
OMG, IT’S THE INTERNET!
Friend of the Missive Carolina sent in this cool project where NYT writers/editors are sharing their quarantine tips, and I insist you all look at Taylor Lorenz’s horror movie Google doc because it is so very good.
Um, wut: according to New Scientist, “We may have spotted a parallel universe going backwards in time.” So hypothetically, could we “go” to this “alternate” universe? Like, please?
Speaking of 2020, would you just stop it?!? This is just getting out of hand. The other plague: Locusts are devouring crops in East Africa and the Middle East.
You know that Elon Musk insanity from earlier in the week? Here’s a thorough Canadian take on it: Who Speaks Truth to Elon Musk? The Grandma of His New Kid. Methinks we are all Sandy Garossino stans now.
And as if you needed another reason to love Costco—which, well, you don’t because Costco is perfect—a manager politely but firmly kicked out a filming customer who refused to wear a mask because ‘MERCA. Said rude and dumb and dangerous customer uploaded the recorded interchange to Reddit because they thought THEY were in the right to threaten a retail worker with his 3,000 followers… and the internet promptly did what the internet does. So hey there, Tison the Costco Manager: you’re awesome.
And you know what? YOU all are awesome. Be kind to each other, and to yourselves.
