Well everyone, congratulations. We made it through the holiday season – can we get one last “ho ho ho” up in here?
With our sleigh bells ring-a-ling-a ding-dong-dinging, we rode into this month rocking around the Christmas tree to London-based singer/songwriter Ebony Buckle’s latest single, “Susan.”
Next, Hala Karim shared her experiences teaching at charter schools, detailing the challenges and exploitations charter school teachers face.
After our review of “The Marriage of Figaro,” we shared information about the Academy of Vocal Art’s next opera production, “BrAVA Philadelphia!”
Then, we spoke to New York-based pop-artist PETRA about her latest album, “Dancing Without You.” PETRA also debuted her official merch store, which features apparel, totebags, and more!
Then, The Black Princess Diaries discussed the challenges of working through the holidays and shared a few tips for keeping spirits high while dealing with Scrooges in the workplace.
Afterward, we directed our artist spotlight toward our toward Natalie Lundeen to gawk at her adorable, hand-painted, wooden ornaments.
Then, we directed our artist spotlight toward Zeynep. We also released our review of Maja Säfström’s “Amazing Facts About Baby Animals” book, which had previously been featured in “The Burgundy Zine #11: History and Holidays.”
Next, we tuned in to an interview with the New York-based pianist and singer-songwriter Julia Klot to learn more about her life-long love for music, her latest album “Brooklyn,” and her upcoming release show at Rockwood Music Hall.
Then, we tuned in to Manic.’s latest single, “Through,” a somber acoustic track perfect for getting you through the winter blues.
Afterward, we directed our artist spotlight toward Natalia Bennett to revel in her fun and festive Christmas artwork and released “The Burgundy Zine #12: It’s Beginning to Look A Lot Like Craftmas.”
Last, but most certainly not least, we discussed the effects of exercise on the digestive tract and took a look at the potential for medical psilocybin.
Going forward, we will begin releasing content for our January issue, “Dawn of a New Decade,” which will highlight what defined the 2010s both culturally and personally for our contributors with a look at what’s currently going on in the world.
More information about submitting content for the January issue will be released this week.
There’s a lot in store for us in 2020 and we can’t thank you enough for being a part of our journey. It’s been a wonderful first year together and we have many more ahead of us.
Until next month,
