We’re heavy liftin’ but we’re feelin’ fine,
We think it’s funny when we look at the time,
We know the releasing being tomorrow has dragged us out,
But we’re really excited for the B-Z #10! ?

We know, we know. We’ve been talking about this song since August. Just jam your hearts out with us, bug buddies.

Weekly Recap

We began carving into this with Shore Grow’s guide to aquaponics for beginners on Sunday, followed by our article, “How Plants Think: The Controversy of Consciousness.”

On Monday, Clare of This Mummy’s Always Write got our mouths watering with her mummy bark recipe.

On Tuesday, we tuned-in to an interview with Cassidy King, who shared the story behind her latest single “Professional Smiler,” and gave us a behind the scenes look at the music video for the track.

Afterwards, Leah of One More Chapter Book Blog gave us her two cents on V.V. James’ mystery novel, “Sanctuary,” then we investigated the science behind positive psychology.

On Wednesday, Big Forty made our day as she hilariously squashed home remedies for getting spiders out of your home. Then, Sarah Ann of Euphoria Rogue showed us how to DIY some Halloween decor for our humble abodes in her “Trick or Treat Halloween DIY.”

That evening, Jayna Lance of Magnolia Monologues encouraged us to sport some corduroy this fall.

On Thursday, InkMe shared a personal poem about losing faith.

On Friday, we directed our artist spotlight towards Gabi Marte and one of her wonderful #inktober2019 drawings, and Peter of Joyful Source gave us a few “Tips For a Kick-Ass Halloween Party.”

Last but most certainly not least, Aaron Radcliff of The Radcliff Reviews gave us in-depth reviews of 13 diverse horror films to binge this Halloween, followed by our feature story on Aries the Cat Ambassador.

Going Forward

Going forward, there’s still more to come!

Today, we’ll be shining our artist spotlight on a special guest once more. We also plan on releasing an interview today, and if all goes well, an article about fear and horror.

Of course, the highlight of this week on The Burgundy Zine will be the release of our October issue, “The Burgundy Zine #10: Spooky Psychology.”

More likely than not, “The Burgundy Zine #10: Spooky Psychology” will be released on Monday evening.

We thank you for your patience. Well, I greatly appreciate it, considering The Burgundy Zine is run by a team of one who manages the website and social media, edits and writes content, and lays out the entire magazine.

The magazine will most likely be published once I return home from my occupation outside of The Burgundy Zine.

On Tuesday, we’ll be tuning into another interview with a very talented guest, so keep an ear out!

In the meantime, checkout all of the amazing articles provided by our guest contributors this week! Their talent seriously blows us away and will blow you away, too.

Until next week,
