Damn, is that a bold, new quarantine hair-do that you’re rocking? ‘Cause you’re killin’ that look with those fresh pandemic PJs, too.

That’s right, we see you out here. While the rest of the world has been abuzz and a bumble with praise for Bernie Sanders’ mittens, we’d like to take a moment to wish you a Happy National Compliment Day. 

Go on, bug buddy. Show off what your momma gave you and BE PROUD. 

Anyway, this has been a pretty light week for The Burgundy Zine. Nevertheless, we do have some exciting content lined up for next week — which includes our first “Tune-In Tuesdays” interview of 2021. 

Weekly Recap

We jumped into this week jamming with our review of “It Ain’t Easy” by UK singer-songwriter Mog Jones on Tuesday. 

Then, we ended this week by diving into a study that assessed how the “Standard American Diet” affects recovery from inflammatory injury in mice. 

The results? The mice who consumed the “SAD” experienced painful symptoms for nearly three times as long as the group eating an anti-inflammatory diet. It also took the “SAD” group twice as long to recover. 

Going Forward

Going forward, we’re publishing our first Tune-In Tuesdays interview of 2021 next week. Editor burgundy bug also intends on releasing Valentine’s Day-themed stickers in her personal art shop, as well.

We do have some guest content lined up for the near future, however, we’re always looking to broadcast more voices to our audience! Whether you’re a writer, an artist, or a musician, we want to showcase your work to our community. 

And on that note, more information about our upcoming quarterly issue of The Burgundy Zine will be released within the next few weeks, too. 

In the meantime, stay healthy, stay safe, and don’t forget to keep your hands warm.
