Pop Loser

February 23 · Issue #101 · View online
A newsletter of innumerable confusions and a profound feeling of despair collected and written by @poploser.

No open this week, just a quick housekeeping note: I’ve got a deadline for book edits in about a week and a half, so expect this thing not to show up next week and possibly the week after. Apologies in advance. This is just going to be a thing that happens until May. And if you think that’s rough, wait until every issue for six months screams “HEY, DID YOU BUY MY BOOK YET?” Apologies for that, too.
