// Hello, welcome to main/menu, a weekly newsletter about video games. Every Friday, Fanbyte Social Editor+ Nicholas Grayson will hand deliver a bunch of words about the intersection between games and culture to your inbox. If you have questions or comments, you can hit me at niki@fanbyte.com.
Okay, time to do the newsletter! //

Start Up
hey i’m pretty tired. this week was so long. i’m tired. i’m not gonna hit shift at all on this newsletter. any capitalization is the result of autocorrect.
i wish weeks were shorter. my friend told me that red wine and orange juice is a good combo so i might try that tonight? we’ll see. i don’t like wine.
y'all ever try to buy a car? i want a bronco sport. if you have a connection to ford at all i have something i’d like to pitch them. (it’s a cross country roadtrip)
oh also thanks so much for sending me all of those cucumber recipes. we made a couple of them and they ruled. we now have a bunch of avocados.
The Discourse
the discourse this week was about gamestop stock. you heard about this? something about stock. i don’t understand it. i put some money in and yesterday i made some money but today i lost $100. i don’t really understand. i also got some doge coin. if you don’t know what it is i explained it to john last night

@FloppyAdult do you want to learn about fake money named after an internet dog
i’m out here trying to make some money, you know. there’s stuff i want to get.
hopefully the numbers go up next week. that’d be cool. don’t buy stock, or do buy stock. i dunno.
motherboard knows more about this stuff than i do so go read their article
Robinhood Stops Users From Trading GameStop Stocks, Other Reddit YOLO Picks
Now Playing
we published a lot of great stuff on fanbyte dot com this week, but the only one i want to highlight is this week’s piece from natalie wiener, which is an important read. fuck barstool.
The Double-Edged Sword of “Women’s Empowerment”
Good Stuff Zone (GSZ)
not to toot my own horn but i took some good photos this week. everyone should get a good outfit that they like and take some photos of yourself. it’s a real confidence booster. also i’ve been uploading our streams to youtube, you can catch all of merritt souls if you want.
The Closer
i had to take my car to the shop today because when i try to use the sunroof it sounds like a machine gun going off in the roof. it’s hell. it’s the second time i’ve had to take it in for sunroof repair. i fucking hate this car. i’m gonna try to sell it this week. i want a bonco.
have a great weekend folks. be safe.
Did you enjoy this issue?
