Woke Vests, And Other Anthropomorphized Clothing I Can Get Behind.
Cuties! A heads up: I’m heading to New Orleans this weekend to visit my dear cousin Anna, so there will be no Missive tomorrow as I get as much work done as possible before I head to the airport. I’m going to try and get a reading list out on Friday since y’all know I’ll be consuming that sweet sweet #content anyways, but please forgive me if I’m in a beignet coma and can’t type with my powdered sugar-crusted claws. And hey, send restaurant recommendations! Knowing of course I will only be there for three days and can only fit so many baked goods into my corporeal form.
Today in corporate PR stunts that I can get behind: Patagonia Is Refusing To Sell Its Iconic Power Vests To Some Financial Firms. There is something *chef’s kiss* delicious about Patagonia being like nah, we’re not going to personalize a bulk order of vests for you, you naughty investment bank that rely on us for your unofficial employee uniform. Essentially, Patagonia will only offer large corporate/customizable orders for non-profits and B Corporations. Which of course means the company is getting more selective, which will tighten supply and increase scarcity and drive up prices HAVE I EXITED MY ECON 101 FEVER DREAM YET.
Today, in headlines I wouldn’t have understood five years ago: Arizona Beverages knocked offline by ransomware attack.
Today, in headlines I sure as heck wouldn’t have believed five years ago that I’d see in 2019: YouTube Decides to Leave Neo-Nazi Propaganda Online.
And finally, did y’all know there was an upcoming Joaquin Phoenix-version of the Joker? Because I was unaware. And while I will gladly take a new Phoenix take over another Leto garbage show, can someone check in with DC studios? Are they ok?
That’s it, that’s all. Take care of each other.
