Titter, RIP Squish Alert & Fyre Festival II 👀🍿🧃
I don’t know why but the other day I remembered this very, very old Eater article covering two reporters eating at Dans Le Noir (In The Dark) and documented chaos is just absolutely so well done. Down to the embedded photos of absolutely nothing. Well, well worth a read.
Quick check-in on two of the most famous grifters:
“Work From the Office, Get Laid Off at Home”- Getting laid of IRL sucked but there are so many ways to make a virtual layoff feel worse, not sure which one I’d want to go with.
“Silicon Valley Bank’s chief risk officer is out, months after taking the job”- Not surprising there’s continuing to be a changing of the guard.
“The “Dude With Sign” Instagram Account Sure Does Sue A Lot Of Brands”- Seems like suing others has become another revenue stream for some creators.
“Pet influencers are hotter than ever. But how do dogs do taxes?”- TL;DR- a lot of expensing of pet clothing and chicken.
''Clarence Thomas and the Billionaire''- I’m sure him hanging out with this billionaire and his bronze gnomes statues doesn’t influence anything in the slightest.
''Metaverse Fashion Week had big brands but few people''- For those of y’all that want to take a deeper look, this documentary is a good watch.
''Rupert Murdoch’s engagement with Ann Lesley Smith is called off''- Nice to see that you can still have whirlwind romances at 92 years old.
''This Viral, Fruit-Headed Doll And Its Tiny P3nis Is Everyone’s Emotional Support Crutch''- …I’m not judging but I’m also very worried about how we’re all doing.
Keeping an eye on sneaky tech:
Kanye West Donda Academy Sued ... You Only Feed Kids Sushi!!!- …Kanye is… afraid of stairs?
''SpaghettiOs releases new flavor aimed at millennials''- 1) I’m a little mad that I want to try this 2) WHAT? Millennials make up A THIRD of SpaghettiO sales? This has to be that they’re buying it for their kids… right?
Twi… er, Titter is up to shenanigans:
''Twitter won’t let you retweet, like or reply to Substack links''- In case y’all were wondering why I’m linking screenshots of tweets this week.
''Chipotle sues Sweetgreen for trademark infringement over 'chipotle chicken' bowl''- I think Sweetgreen was shady for naming their bowl this but Chipotle also shouldn’t own claim to a name of an actual spice…
''The Beer Business Is Trying to Find the Guy Who Did This''- This one’s a bit niche but interesting if you’re into the whole beverage space.
