1. The Week That Was
Let’s start with a correction of a bone-headed mistake I made last week: here’s the blog post about how I made A Good Enough Zine. And a reminder: if you want a copy of our new and improved issue 2, email us your address.
This week was all Yay.Boo (and next week or two will be the same). We love this project and want to add a payment plan to it, so that people can upgrade for a few extra features—and we can have a sustainable revenue stream to keep Yay.Boo going forever.
And in case you missed it, take a look at this mesmerizing art by Arun.
2. Introducing Dusted: A Shop for Better Popcorn
My wife Rianna loves home-made popcorn and experimenting with big, bold, unique flavors. I’m partial to white cheddar myself, but that’s too run-of-the-mill for her. After years of flavor hunting and finding some amazing products (like seasonings that actually stick to the popcorn), she is now creating a space to share those products with other people who also love making popcorn at home. If you’re reading this newsletter and are a fan of Good Enough, you might just be one of those people! So check out her new shop Dusted which launches today.
Dusted is a store for everything you need for making popcorn at home: a curated selection of kernels, popping oils, finishing oils, unique dusts and seasonings, and of course, gear to make and serve popcorn. But its flagship product is its Popcorn Packs, Rianna’s hand-picked bundles that give you everything all at once. Have you ever had popcorn that tastes like ramen? I hadn’t either! It’s delicious. Ramen is the first pack she’s launching with, in two flavors (spicy and umami), just in time for the cooler weather.
Dusted is based out of Brooklyn & ships nation-wide in the US. In her words:
Dusted exists as this celebration of exciting flavors, and as a place for popcorn nerds to find everything they need to truly nerd out about their home popcorn. No other popcorn lover should have to waste time scouring the internet for delicious, quality ingredients. Dusted is more than just a shop; it's a popcorn bazaar that celebrates the simple joy of one of life's best snacks.
Happy snacking! —Matthew
4. Sharing is Caring
Our friend Dan Marino launched an EP last week. He’s charging $3 on Bandcamp but I paid $5 because I’m nice.
Barry shared this cool JS library that lets you make games that look like retro 80s computer interface.
This 2001 Nintendo website is perfection.
Barry found the Magic Bullet and it’s advertised to help me unlock my brain’s potential so I can finally achieve my goals!
5. In Conclusion
Our printer received more great drawings this week! It’s incredible to see how the gallery has grown, with so many beautiful drawings now on the website. Thank you.
Wishing you a fabulous and safe weekend. Remember to floss and hydrate. Watch out for dog poop and bird droppings, and when in doubt: turn right. We’ll see you next week.
