We’ve made it to another year! What’re you planning for the new year? Are you just riding it out and seeing what happens?
If you (somehow) haven’t heard me talk about it yet, my EP is out! You can check it out here: https://tcannonfodder.bandcamp.com/album/mesh-network
Let me know what you think of it! I still can’t believe I actually finished it by the end of 2022, it was really close to the wire. Now that it’s over, I’m going to focus on getting it out to more people, listen to music again (when I’m working on my own, I can’t listen to anyone else’s, it’s “fun”), and experiment as I find inspiration. One of the things I personally struggle with is self-promotion, so I’m going to work at it this year, since I believe in this EP.
This week has had some truly bizarre things come across my inbox, so I want to quickly share some links and get to those.
We’ve collectively joked that since 2020, we’re becoming increasingly unhinged and generally chaotic. But this week in particular, there’s been a slew of stuff that’s just been…on a whole other level.
I’ll start with this subject line, which I got on Monday. I had food poisoning, and in between sleeping and feeling every atom in my body shudder in a bid for death, Warby Parker sent me the following email:
No, I did not click it
That same night, while watching Everybody Loves Raymond on TV Land (because if you’re this sick, you might as well crawl back to nostalgia), amid a half-dozen casino app commercials (bad! They’re a sign things are Bad™️!), Take5, TVLand, and the FCC decided this is what needed to be aired
My journaling app decided to be that person at a party in your mid-20s who is really pushy & hyper focused on getting everyone to overshare
These two are technically from last week; but they’re just so goddamn unhinged that they had to make the cut.
I’ve saved this one for last, because every single part of this email makes me cry-laugh tears. I refuse to believe this isn’t actually a Tim Robinson bit. Here’s a PDF copy, because it’s distressingly long: https://www.dropbox.com/s/e2xnnstxlidil59/Discover%20the%20tech%20behind%20UScan.pdf?dl=0
That’s all I have; I hope you enjoyed and got just as much whiplash as I did.
