Women of color hollaback. Ananya Roy on when the patriarchy gets personal. The complete Bill Withers 1973 BBC concert. How David Lynch and Angelo Badalamenti collaborated on the Twin Peaks soundtrack. A classic episode of This American Life—the "You and the Little Mermaid can go f*ck yourself" one, which I think of every time I see the exit toward La Jolla—annotated.
This is my "Thanks for your input, men of Twitter" face
"Thank goodness for #healthgoth and @annfriedman on this Halloween night" -Molly Matthieson. #healthgoth has given us so much.
"I read your email after 11pm on Halloween and ended up rolling with the coffee table idea, slightly modified: I strapped the magazines to my back with tape along with a TV remote and some other debris. When asked what my costume was I got down on my hands and knees to make the coffee table come to life. Worked out great! Thanks!" -Chris Lewis. This newsletter is all about finding new uses for old magazines. And making coffee tables come to life, apparently.
"How many times do I have to tell you, @gmail, that @annfriedman and @alexismadrigal are *primary* not promotion?" -monica. The struggle continues.
"Always find a good read in @annfriedman's weekly blast." -Vaugn Fender. Only one?! I've failed you.
"@annfriedman where is newsletter? :( withdrawal. feeling like it isn't friday can you make it friday please?" -Priya Anand. ::shrug:: I was busy eating french fries with my friend Katy and getting a haircut. Lesson: You gotta learn to make it Friday for yourself.
"Birthday treat to myself: saved up two @annfriedman newsletters to read while 'working.' 💃" -Sophia. See? It can even be double-Friday on a Wednesday!
