WHEN VACATION IS OVER…
ADVENTURES IN MODERN RETAIL: Two long standing brands are teaming up in a way that has people talking. Whether people will be buying remains to be seen. And I imagine other brands are watching. Big thanks to Dappered reader Peter B. for sending this our way. Always appreciated!
I AM MAD AS HELL AND I’M NOT GONNA TAKE IT ANYMORE: This is horseshit for a few not-unimportant reasons. Besides the fact that this constant barrage of whining about millennials is beyond lazy and generally completely wrong on many levels…this in particular is just wrong on its merits. Last time I looked, liquid soap and body washes have been a thing since the late 80’s. Go away fool.
A STUDY IN SIDING 1:
DAMN NATURE! You. Are. Scary. Thanks to Dossier reader Aurangzeb A. for the heads up. Much appreciated!)
THE BOOKMARK/SAVE FOR LATER SECTION OF THIS WEEK’S DOSSIER: On account of these being long-form stories. And y’all are busy. But they are totally worth your time. No foolin’.
- NOT GONNA LIE: Australia is the place where Mother Nature just tripped the hell out and gave her very last feck.
- ONCE UPON A TIME…there was a pioneering trans athlete you never heard of. Oh yeah, and she was an Olympic champion.
AWKWARD: At first I was like “ah damn, that is hilarious!” but then I thought “oh shit, those guys might not feel the same way.” Because…ouch.
THE TURNER APPRECIATION SOCIETY:
WINONA THINGS: Because some of us (I’m looking at you Eric H.!) can’t get enough of Miss Ryder.
UNSUSTAINABILITY IN THREE ACTS: We begin with this, which has further exposed the greed in the pharmaceutical industry. From there, this piece describing the untowardly shenanigans of in-network service providers. Because, there’s some shady things happening there. And finally this, which begs the conversation about who provides healthcare in the first place and how their policies effect the actual health of their patients. Conversation starters? Oh, don’t for a minute think we don’t have issues with the likes of this, Higher Education.
WORDS: You know how I feel. They matter. So I appreciate this.
SO. MANY. QUESTIONS. I don’t even know where to begin. But it involves bikinis and blow. Lots and lots of booger sugar. And an old guy. But hey! YOLO! Am I right? Yeah. You know it.
FAREWELL MISTER WONKA. YOU WILL BE MISSED.
THIS IS NOT A DISCLAIMER: If you are a movie fan, if you’ve ever seen a movie, this is for you. Who knew? I mean, besides the people who, you know, knew.
MISSED IT BY THAT MUCH: You’ve got to give this guy credit for nearly pulling off the Hoggle look in his attempt to flee the 5-0.
EXPERIMENT OF THE WEEK! You might not care, but this is an interesting exercise.
THE CIRCLE OF LIFE: Sometimes the little guys win in the end. At least, this one time.
A STUDY IN SIDING 2:
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT OF THE WEEK: Having just returned from nearly two weeks in the mountains, this is super dooper relevant at the moment.
THEN THERE’S THIS: I’d sigh but it wouldn’t really matter.
OH. EM. GEE. I may have just peed my pants a little bit. I am not proud. So, I guess I’m damp and happy.
GEEK ALERT LEVEL 10: One can dream right?
