Old Man Summer

Vol. 1, No. 13

Thanks for subscribing to Sunday Bunch.

I just made my way back from two weeks on the road doing lazy river research. Seeing as it has obviously been a slow couple of weeks news-wise (🤣😭🤯), I have another easy-breezy Summer Edition for you today.

Have you ever sported a mullet?

Why am I seeing this message?

These days, there are very few apps that I actually entrust with my professional and personal data.

Notion helps me keep track of my digital life - the links, documents, projects - all with AI search and analysis.

It’s a wild time. And given that it’s only July, the second half of 2024 is clearly going to go harder than original formula Four Loko.

A friendly reminder, should you find yourself feeling down:

We have always been a little bit off. It’s kind of the American way.

We are the nation that unleashed KONY 2012 on the world:

But also one made up of inventive lunatics who DIY their own flying cars:

The instrumentation may change, but the song remains the same.

That’s it for this edition of Sunday Bunch. Thank you for reading.

I hope you have a great rest of the weekend and if you’re still traveling, I hope you rawdog your flight home safely.
