Monthly Newsletter #5: May the Culture Be with You

Oh me, oh my. Oh me, oh May. Day by day, The Burgundy Zine was honored to celebrate our theme of culture throughout the month.
Although this month’s theme ended up being more geared towards specific subcultures, we truly enjoyed the unique perspectives shared by our contributors and interviewees alike.
After reviewing the highlights from April, we began this month with XtaSeay and I’s review of the Indica Remedi Transdermal Patches by Cresco for our Strain of the Week series.
Then, PA Purnell kickstarted our theme of culture with her essay, ‘I Am American.’
Then, Sorayah shared her photographs from Venice Beach, Calif with us.
Next, we took a moment to appreciate ‘The Evolution of Meme Culture.’
Then, we let out a deep breath as relief washed over us in, ‘Post Finals Week: The Come Down After the Crash.’
After reviewing ‘The French Art of Not Giving a Sh*t: Cut the Crap and Live Your Life,’ we gave some tips on ‘How to Dress for Work Without Sporting Floral Prints.’
Next, Chloe Fry shed some light on social media culture with her article, ‘Be Kinder to Yourself: Social Media.’
Then, we covered neurology professor Hayley Nelson, P.h.D and Tina Curry-Logan’s ‘Webinar: The Physiological Effects of a Life Out of Balance.’
Once we figured out ‘How Smoking was Denormalized,’ we reviewed LINE Corporation’s free to play app, ‘Little Wizard Sally.’
Towards the end of May, we interviewed kawaii mom, blogger, and social media influencer MomoKumo in, ‘Kicking it Kawaii Style with MomoKumo.’
Before the release of ‘The Burgundy Zine #5: Be Present – Culture,’ we interviewed the Calif-based indie band Gone Fishin’.
Then, Kara Masterson helped us switch gears into our theme of summer for the month of June with ‘Preparing Your Home for Summer: 4 Ways to Keep Your Family Cool and Content by Kara Masterson.’
Lastly, encouraged others to appreciate their roots in celebration of summer break with the post ‘Living on Vacation: Making the Most of Home During Summer Break.’
