Weekly Newsletter #83: The Final Stretch

As I emerge from the cavern I’ve confined myself to, fingers locked to my half-correct typing position, legs twisted into puzzles, eyes glowing with a signature bloodshot glare, I realize that I’ve laid out over 50 percent of “The Burgundy Zine #16: Skin Care, Self Care” in less than one week.
