We’re getting a little better at social distancing and for us, that means keeping busy (if that’s not you, GREAT! More on that later). This week we’ve rounded up anxiety-free articles, riso artists to support, and launched another side project you’ll want to follow.
To be frank, we’re very tired of corona content. So we’ve collected a handful of great virus-free articles. Read on, and take a break from the news:
- The Family Reviews: Anna Brettschneider, The Family Interviews (Shameless founder plug)
- Who What Wear: The 7 Trending Spring Colors Fashion People Love
- The Drum: Pizza Hut and Ikea Collaborate on Pizza and Flatpack Products
- Stereogum: We Have The Facts And We’re Voting Yes Turns 20
Among those who suffer in a recession, artists often comprise a high percentage. One thing we’re doing to help is supporting small press risograph artists online. Here are a few of our favorites:
- Dogs Print by Yellow Owl Workshop
- Sardines Print by Chuck Kuan
- Accidentally Sneezing With A Mouthful of Raisin Bran Zine by Logan Fitzpatrick
- Eye Cue 2 Zine by Gabriel Alcala
- Quarantine Zine by Catalogue Library **ALL PROCEEDS GO TO FOODBANK for NYC
NEW SIDE PROJECT ALERT: coolstuff eats.
We’ve been cooking a lot of other people’s recipes like these. Follow along with us on our new twitter: @coolstuffnyc
Writer Haley Nahman, formerly of Man Repeller, has a great take: “You don’t have to make the most of a pandemic.” Read the rest of her thoughts on Instagram here.

This week we’ve rounded up our favorite quarantine reads. See our top picks here:
Prospect Heights, Brooklyn
Our Rating: 5 of 5
When to Go: (When we’re not social distancing) go for brunch before an afternoon at the Brooklyn Museum. For now, you can support Tom’s by ordering on Door Dash.
What to order: Go with a friend and split the chocolate pancakes and chicken club wrap...the best of both worlds!
What to know: Tom’s is like 2 blocks from Prospect Park (!!!)
P.S THANK YOU to all who supported our efforts for City Harvest NYC. Together through our t-shirt sale, we were able to raise over $900 in donations. We couldn’t have done it without you!
