I will not lie to you, readers. I’m tired and I spent my last hours at the job today doing job blogging (about webcomics! read it!) All I want to do is sit around with the Turkey cat and possibly find an episode of a tv show to watch on free Hulu that is not too horrible. So this post is going to be short and exclamatory.
Look what I got in the mail!
In case you can’t read backwards, that says “Rookie Yearbook One Edited by Tavi Gevinson”
Have you all been heeding my advice and reading Rookie? No? Is it because Rookie is not published on paper? Now you have no excuse.
- real yearbook signatures on the endpapers from B.J. Novak, Miranda July, Sarah Silverman, AND MORE
- a cutout Crown of Love
- a RECORD
- amazing writing for you to keep and read even when you’re on the wrong side of the Digital Divide or if the power goes out. Worth it for Jenny’s stories alone, but there are also great collages and illustrations, instructions on How to Bitchface, interviews with Daniel Clowes, celebrations of Joni Mitchell and sea creatures, and a taxonomy of the hairstyles of the musicians of the 1980s.
Did I convince you? Publication info is here.
If you’re not reading Rookie because you’re not a teenager or you’re not a girl, stop it! It’s the magazine you should have been able to read in the throes of adolescence and so you should read it now anyway. Its advice columns heal my former self and rival the genius of my current online advice obsession, Captain Awkward (btw, Captain Awkward is saving my life incrementally) (For real).
