Weekly Round-up 11/6/2023
What a week! I’m honestly exhausted. Learning how to do all this stuff is a lot more complicated than I was expecting. This week saw the unveiling of quite a lot of new content. Biggest of all was the official podcast! I’ve released two episodes so far, the first is a review of the film Killers of the Flower Moon and the second is a review of the new (and very fun) videogame Robocop: Rogue City. The next few weeks are pretty busy for me though I’m hoping to get a steady stream of episodes for all of my beloved paid subscribers up and running soon.
On that note, I’d like to take an opportunity to once again beg for more paid subscribers. Paid subscribers have access to podcast episodes (the Robocop: Rogue City review is free just as a sample but future episodes will all be paywalled) along with the exclusive history articles I’ve been writing. I’m doing a lot of my own research, I just can’t work for free though. Every single subscriber makes a big difference to me. Please, I’m begging you with tears in my eyes and socks on my hands, upgrade to paid right now.
I also tried my hand at becoming a health and wellness influencer, with a starting article on some strategies to correct sleep problems. I have literally zero professional expertise or training, but I have had a lot of health issues that are now resolved and know how unpleasant it can be to deal with these things. I hope this advice helps you like it helped me.
Lots of exciting stuff on the horizon. Onward and upward!
There were 5 new articles this week.
Ep1: Redditors of the Reddit Moon (Paid) - The inaugural episode of the long-awaited (by me, at least. It took me forever to learn how to do audio stuff) podcast. The first episode reviews the new Martin Scorsese movie Killers of the Flower Moon and discusses the role of “atrocity porn” in our society
Ep2: Robocop: Rogue City review (Free) - A review of the new videogame Robocop: Rogue City, which is a perfect adaptation of the (also perfect) Robocop film series, which also gets discussed for a little bit
Ole Hanson stumps the country for Americanism (Free) - Newspaper article from 1919 that features an extended interview with hero ex-Seattle mayor Ole Hanson who successfully resolved the 1919 Seattle General Strike without bloodshed. Hanson embarked on a national speaking tour against domestic radicalism, and it really is remarkable to see just how similar the problems they faced back then were (and how the people of the time solved those problems)
Have you ever tried... going to sleep? (Free) - A few tips on how to correct sleep problems after you’ve already tried the obvious: improving your diet and getting enough exercise. Although this isn’t an exhausted list of insomnia cures, these are things that I have tried personally and worked for me after years of sleep issues
Please stop talking about how the election is going to be rigged before it has happened (Free) - An article discussing an enduring problem on the Right: well-meaning people demoralizing their own side for no real reasons. There are plenty of issues with fraud but these can be solved, and in fact they have to be solved, without telling your own people that their vote doesn’t matter. I lost like 12 subscribers after posting this article but I’m definitely right about it
