Welcome to my brain…

Happy Monday my darling pop culture junkies!! We have hit March. Or we are STILL in March is really how it feels. I am already being flooded with people sharing their memories of WHERE THEY WERE or WHAT THEY WERE DOING when then they realized this was actually a thing last year. I remember I was on a flight to Miami and Questlove was on the flight and he was the only one wearing a mask and people were teasing him about it and he was DOUBLE MASKED so he really was ahead of his time. And I remember thinking…

Happy Monday my darling subscribers!!

I am sorry to burn your eyes with Ted Cruz because really we have all had enough but it HAD TO HAPPEN.

I am incorporating more and more TikToks each week as THIS IS WHAT THE PEOPLE ASKED FOR.

As always, share any feedback please. And SHARE this newsletter with everyone you know and love…and hate and cannot stand. Really, I will take them all. ☺

Stay safe and healthy and kind you guys.

Welcome to my brain…

Happy Monday my darling pop culture junkies! Well that was SOME week huh? To my friends in Texas, I hope you are all safe and warm and planning on voting Ted Cruz OUT of office when the time comes. THAT jackass….but more on that guy later.

This country continues to confuse me from having a state totally fail when it comes to their power grid to some of us still living in a state of lockdown and Florida seemingly NOT and never has and nightclubs are open and I guess we are just fine with that? People are getting vaccinated…

Hello my darling subscribers!

Apologies on being a day late but yesterday I just needed a detox from some screen time and took advantage of a day off and I did not buy a mattress or a car which is apparently what you are meant to do on Presidents’ Day…

But this was quite a wild week on the socials and in pop culture in general, so I hope you enjoy this ride. I also highlight some fun content that’s worth checking out, but we DEFINITELY get into NACHO TABLES!

As always, please share with everyone and get them to subscribe! Feedback OR complaints, HIT ME UP.

Welcome to my brain…

Happy FAKE Monday my pop culture junkies! I am sorry I failed in delivering this yesterday but it turned out I needed a bit of a digital detox plus who was really going to read this yesterday when you were all out skiing or swimming or staying in bed or making TikToks or watching TikToks on President’s Day in the US. OR if you were freezing your asses off in Texas and Oklahoma and anyone in the wake of super storm Uri (Uri, really? REALLY Storm Naming people? This is what you got??) But I hope everyone is safe and…

Happy Monday my darling subscribers!!

I am in a fog from all the carbs (calories don’t count on Super Bowl Sundays FYI) and the champagne which is obvious from the chaos of topics I tackle here but buckle up and enjoy. BEWARE OF THE FETA PASTA TREND. Also, SCREW THE GOLDEN GLOBES and if you have not yet watched “I MAY DESTROY YOU” on HBO Max do so immediately.

Here’s this week’s chaotic newsletter…enjoy and share with like everyone you know please!

Welcome to my brain…

Happy Monday my darling pop culture junkies! I am nursing a SLIGHT post-Super Bowl hangover so if I wander off in even weirder tangents than normal then blame the champagne I drank last night and NOT me as it was really not my fault. But look here is the deal…I am going to ever so briefly highlight my fave parts (not the game, don’t be crazy) and I mean there was a streaker and other things but we all saw it. And I am sorry if you hate Tom Brady but he is incredible and I say to hell with…

Happy Tuesday my darling Pop Culture Junkies!! I am so sorry I didn’t send this yesterday but BETTER late than never!!

ANYWAY, by now you are SICK of GameStop News…or you cannot get enough and want more…or you are like WHAT IS GAMESTOP. So, really this newsletter is for all of you. Though as for me, all I want to do is hide under my bed for the rest of the day so if you need me, that is likely where I will be.

I tried my best…I am much better talking about TIKTOK trends than everything we cover today but alas, I give it a go.

Welcome to my brain…

Happy First Day of February my darling pop culture junkies. I don’t know about you but last week totally exhausted me. I mean I was delirious by this weekend — so much so I ended up getting my dog’s face tattooed on my body but I digress…but I think I need another day or two to decompress but that isn’t happening and now I am just buckling up for what this week, this day, this hour holds. NEVER in my life did I think the stock market would be pop culture but here we are. WE DID THIS. Whether it…

Welcome to my brain…

Well HAPPIEST Monday my darling pop culture junkies. I mean OK sure…we are still in the thick of lockdowns for many of us, there is no end in sight and new, horrible strains are being reported. The vaccine roll-out makes no sense and is different everywhere and there are SO many people jumping the line because they can (my only advise to those who have…MAYBE don’t brag about it?) There are a million companies going public a week via SPACs — AND there are so many people who are asking me about what this is and I mean there are…
