“You know the 90th most popular dog name? Oreo.”

Jess S: Try Hard Fool- The Growlers
If you are feeling happy, content, sad, in a rut, stressed out, feeling any emotions at all, have a listen to this song! Good things will happen, and hard times will pass! “You gotta laugh every once in a while.” :)
“Ralph Lauren Releases a Rachel Green Collection”
SCIFY’s third season of Van Helsing is available on Netflix and I finished the whole thing over the weekend. If you’re a fan – Sam’s character comes full circle and it’s so epic – all my evil vampire dreams came true.
A music video that I love for Tirzah’s “I’m Not Dancing.” I have been listening to Tirzah a lot lately, and while this is a fun dance song, I recommend everyone listen to her album Devotion which is a beautiful and intimate piece.
Slow dancing in the dark – Joji
Quick and easy to follow life lessons on the philosophy of life and all things human. Paired with cute animations, these videos will have you interested for hours.

Raveena ft. Hope Tala – Floating
This is my favorite track from Raveena’s recent album “Lucid Dreams.” Raveena’s tracks are to help discover one’s unique self. The track has a different dynamic and has a very melodic, but spiritual sound. Raveena stands out to me because she is able to represent many minorities that are afraid to artistically express themselves or feel confined to a certain group.
I found this Instagram for a shop called Commodity Fetish in Southside Richmond that sells beautiful vintage mid-century furniture and art.
(if too specific to Richmond)
Esme’s Drawer Too is an online shop for vintage clothes curated combining classic and eclectic pieces. She sells a lot of pieces in delicate sheer silks, 80’s bustiers and cool one-of-a-kind purses.
Wanderland by Kelis
An album I’ve been re-listening to. It just got put on streaming services!!
One of my very favorite photo books.
“Against a backdrop of ecological decline, this memoir/travelogue follows an itinerant theatrical troupe, Truppe Fledermaus, as they stage absurdist performances in various locations including Europe, America, and Japan. In these performances the Truppe are as apt to commemorate the passing of an unusual cloud as they are to be found documenting their own attempts to flee the rising waters of a warming planet or using black humor to comment on the extinction of bats and other animals.”
I’ve been listening to this song a lot recently
Also a post I love
two Instagram profiles inspiring me
@toucheconomy is a profile hosted by a russian young woman who creatively plays with delicate textures and shapes using her own hair, plants, wax, and produce. so creative so precious
@sighswoon is a meme page centered around mental health, clarity, self-love, and spiritualism, good heart-melting memes to connect you with your higher self

Here’s an article about the best Dance Music of this Month!
Here’s a poem by Kevin Young inspired by Cassius Clay by Basquiat!
I shook up
the world! Clay shouts
to the announcer
the next day he
will turn Ali.
or swole carpet-red
as the paint B covered
this canvas, drawing
blood—not even Cassius
called out his name.
Refusing to recognize
or fool Floyd Patterson—
will get you a new haircut,
whether you want one
or not. How
he hounds [End Page 294]
his prize belt—
a noose for Sonny’s ex-
con neck. Petty crook.
Ali just bout serves
—Army taking away
his right to fight
when he won’t fight
them Viet Cong
who’ve done him
Houston, we gots
a problem—will not
bow or stand
when his no-longer-
name the Draft
Board calls. Lords
—Get up, you bum!
—who will fall to a phantom
punch 1st rd, forget
to get up. (Died,
Liston did, five
years later, in Vegas,
the needle in
his arm, the neon.)
Ali, now he could hit you [End Page 295]
into next year—
but apart from the flogging,
his flaunting, were the taunts
challengers heard ringing
Uncle Tom! Come on
Come on White America!
even above the ten count
& crowd—his undented smile—
that smarts still.
I reread this at the beginning of the school year because it’s such a perfect representation of being confused as a college student and it’s also beautifully written.
New Rex Orange County song was so catchy, been listening to it on repeat
I fell upon this artist on Instagram that I have really been enjoying lately.
