We like to go to upstate New York on weekends. (Camping trip this weekend.) But folks like us, especially those who have been buying up the cheap houses up there, have made the area unaffordable to regular folks who work up there. Rural gentrification is a COVID thing.
Another casualty from the pandemic are live music shows. Go to a concert, people!
There was a greater magnetic force of people’s couches than I, as a producer, anticipated,” said Jeremy Blocker, the managing director at New York Theater Workshop, the Off Broadway theater that developed “Rent” and “Hadestown.” “People got used to not going places during the pandemic, and we’re going to struggle with that for a few years.”
I want to spend my Sundays like Alice Feiring.
I’m kinda fascinated by the Instagram influencer: Tinx. Look at her stories, not just her posts. She posts CONSTANTLY. Her California style is totally not my own. I don’t like her clothes and her makeup, but she so damn prolific and hard working. I click on her stories, whenever I’m killing time on Insta.
It was also on Insta that I found out that Dooce had a meltdown last week. Her daughter is making some gender changes, and she wrote a rant about it on her blog. Then she deleted it. People are still yelling at her on Instagram about it. She’s had a lot of problems. It’s hard to watch someone’s life degenerate online.
I do kinda love that I’m seeing teenage girls with short hair again. Are they all making a gender statement? Or is it just fashion?
At some point, we’re going to have to talk about Trump and Liz Cheney. But today is not that day.
