Shout Out Sunday

Good morning! This week was truly tough for me. It almost ended in hospitalization (what a great way to miss family Easter that would have been). Oh yeah, it’s Easter, so enjoy that if Christianity is something you do. I’ll just be buying discount candy tomorrow.

Here’s some dope shit from the week!

  1. QUEEN JESUS LIZZO’S NEW ALBUM IS OUT! Stream Cuz I Love You, or buy it with human money, you nerd.
  2. Can’t get enough of “Hard Case” by Tedeschi Trucks Band.
  3. Donald Glover made a movie with Rihanna???
  4. All of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is now on Netflix, so I know what you’re doing with your weekend! I just finished the series and will probably binge the whole thing from the beginning.
  5. Fell in love with Pixi by Petra Mattelast Liquid Lip. Actually, Pixi in general.
  6. Sansa Stark really is that bitch.
  7. Donate to Elizabeth Warren’s campaign. Sure, there are a few great options for 2020 but Warren has been out here in these streets putting out progressive policy and being an unequivocal badass every damn day. A donation to her is a small way of saying that policy matters. Lol, remember how, 4 years ago, every bro said that they’d totally vote for a progressive like Warren, just not Hillary? They lied (duh) and it’s gonna be a long fight.
  8. Brandy Jensen is therapy.
  9. I’m just here for the Cardi.
  10. I finally pulled the trigger on subscribing to Dear Prudence on Slate Plus and the Magnum edition of the Savage Lovecast. It’s called self-care.
  11. I’m dumb and didn’t realize that my favorite tattoo/piercing place opened up a Boston location…years ago. Can’t wait to get more work done!
  12. How to Break Your Single-Use Plastic Habit.
  13. If you’ve been reading for a while, you know I go back and forth about alcohol, but this is a fun little list if you want to impress at your next dinner party.

And last but certainly not least, I was heartbroken to learn about the Notre Dame fire this week. I was so fortunate to be able to see it last summer, even if I didn’t get to spend nearly as much time admiring it as I may have liked. It’s breathtaking, living history, and I’m so glad to know that much of the art, artifacts, and relics were saved.

Shout Out Sunday

It is becoming increasingly apparently that my foremost skill in life is starting these posts prior to Sunday, forgetting about them, and then on the following Saturday, cobbling together an end so that I can schedule them to come out when they’re supposed to. I’m really consistent! I think I can officially stop wondering why no one in their right mind would pay me to write.

This week’s round-up is very on brand for me—media-heavy and a bit too late to be relevant. But I mean, if you’d only just given yourself the gift of listening to Demi Adejuyigbe talk about pop songs for an hour and a half at a time, you’d probably brag about it too.

Enjoy!

  1. Danny had Nicole Cliffe on the most recent episode of Dear Prudence, so run, don’t walk.
  2. On that note, are you subscribed to Nicole Knows, The Shatner Chatner, and The Stage Mirror? You ought to be.
  3. I just read Shrill because I watched Shrill and Lindy and Aidy are perfect and everything was beautiful and nothing hurt.
  4. I joined Bumble BFF and I have no regrets.  I felt like a complete loser about it but we all deserve a rich social life that shouldn’t have to die just because we move or graduate.
  5. I really tried with Pen15, but I can’t get into it. It’s too authentic. The writing and acting are so convincingly tween. If you’re into nostalgia (the girls on the show are almost the exact age I was back in the early ’00s), you’ll love it. 12-year-olds just make me cringe. Note: I will still probably watch the entire series.
  6. A Quiet Place is on Hulu now and I might have to break my no-horror-movies-ever rule to watch it.
  7. If Beale Street Could Talk is also on Hulu right now, so I’ll definitely have to watch that.
  8. WERS (the local cool radio station, from Emerson College) keeps advertising a music festival in Reykjavik and it’s making me want to visit Iceland so bad! It’s such a stunningly gorgeous country, and it will be a great way to kick off seeing Scandinavia!
  9. I finally started listening to Punch Up The Jam and it’s my new favorite podcast. I highly recommend starting with the “Wannabe” episode. This week is Shania Twain!
  10. On that note, “You’re Still the One” still holds the fuck up.
