We have some new subscribers lately - welcome to the newsletter (unless any of you are undermining democracy and public health as a craven supplicant to a bigoted death cult). In the interest of transparency and good faith, I have not made this issue any better than usual so you can see what you've gotten yourself into. I hope you enjoy it nonetheless.

Item 3: a media recommendation

Beforeigners: Official Trailer

Have I already recommended this show? I can't remember. But it's a Viking time-travel police procedural that balances the absurdity of its premise with some thorough world-building and also is in Norwegian so get your reading glasses out. There are only two short-ish seasons (so far) and I recommend it.

Item 4: a photograph

I've been going back and forth over whether this viral tweet is real or not but you know what? Even if it's fraudulent I respect the hustle. Good job, blurry!

See ya!
