    Omg, Susan’s tweets are hilarious. So glad there wasn’t Twitter when I was partying. I was a drunk caller so I’m sure I would have been posting drunk tweets

    “He id my drunk comfort animal.”

  3. Case says:

    I love Susan’s novel The Orchid Thief. I should really read more of her work.

    I feel like things like Hamilton, Colin Kaepernick’s upcoming documentary series, and Black Is King aren’t necessarily obvious fits for Disney+, but I’m really glad that’s where they’re landing. They’re important for kids to see.

  4. ChillyWilly says:

    Lol! Susan Orlean sounds like a very fun drunk. I love her husband repeatedly asking her if she’s ok.

  5. Stacy Dresden says:

    Um. That Omi jewelry is F’AMAZING. I want like every single piece on that site

  6. Elizabeth says:

    Susan Orlean is the funny we needed. Thank you for sharing that.

    And get that Disney money Beyonce! That’s super cool that that will be on the Disney+ platform.

  7. Dizzy says:

    Very funny. I love Susan Orléans books. I’ve at least 3 of them. Yup pandemic drinking is getting crazy. I had to go on the wagon in June.

  8. LeonsMomma says:

    The Omi Woods pieces are beautiful, but look like something I would get from a museum store or from a street market (though those would not be gold!)

  9. minx says:

    Well, my drinking has definitely increased during the pandemic.

    I’ve been listening to the Gaslighter album on a loop since Friday. Wow. It’s so good. Someone tried to call it their “Lemonade” but it’s way better b/c they wrote it AND Natalie didn’t stay with that POS Adrian Pasdar. He gets read to filth and I love it.

    • Cassandra says:

      It’s soooooooooooo good

    • Jayna says:

      It is fantastic. What an album. Wow! Natalie was taking no prisoners: the anger, the hurt, the vulnerability, sadness, the anguish, the hopefulness. And the melodies galore. The unbelievable harmonies. The instruments. The songwriting.

      And what a music video for March March. It is a must-see. It is a piece of art. That music video meets the moment. The ending was heart-stopping with the instrumental outro and all of the names coming faster and faster. Chilling.

      “The Chicks” have brought a fresh body of work, not some retreading of past glories. That’s hard for a band to do as they hit mid-life. And they are pissing off a bunch of southern men by losing “Dixie” from their name.

    I didn’t love her tweets as much as everyone else did. It seemed sort of performative. Plus as someone who’s given up drinking, I cringed a little bit as she got drunker and drunker. People were sweet to her, which was nice to see. Whatever it takes to get through these crazy days.

    • Jules says:

      I’m with ya on this. Everyone loved it and thought it was amazing, that someone got drunk? Hmm.

    • strah says:

      I agree. When I see someone drunk talking about f’ this and f’ that and f’ the family members that are worried about them, it doesn’t strike me as funny. As a hypothetical, what if these words were coming from Juaquin Phoenix? Would that be hilarious?
