[No. 036] In Which We Say Hello Again...
Tuesday, July 28, 2015
... with the help of Texas' mascot, Rangers Captain. I guess?
While we were away, not one, but TWO of this year’s best albums dropped: Jamie xx’s In Colour and Tame Impala’s Currents (links to both of them below). They join my top 4 of the year, along with Natalie Prass' debut and Kendrick's masterpiece.
The next tier would be something like Ryan Adams' Carnegie Hall live album, Tobias Jesso Jr.'s latest, Fort Romeau's debut, and a few others. I'm sure I'll do a proper list at some point.
So: WE'RE BACK. The new design clearly retains a lot of stylings from the old one, but it's much more visual, much more interactive (HIT THAT TWEET BUTTON BELOW), and gives me the freedom to do a lot more. So, yay MailChimp. There will be a few design tweaks here and there, but I think this works. But enough about me talking about this newsletter. What's in store today?
A cool interactive map with playlists from locales all over the world (Ann Arbor is a huge disappointment!), a judge rules that a tweet with an original joke is copyrightable (finally, Jerry Seinfeld will stop stealing my shit!), how do you fall asleep with your phone (me? with it next to my bed while I lie awake contemplating the meaning of life or at least that one crappy email that I still regret writing!), and a bunch of amazing music!
It feels good to be back. Smiley face emoji. 🏀Actually, nevermind. Basketball emoji. Ball is life.
