Real things that actually exist: stay away!

Social Distance Warrior: RED pal Doc Pop writes, “I’ve been working with artists on Fiverr to convert health advice messages into extreme metal band logos. I’m sharing the results on this Twitter thread. I’m releasing some of my favorites on Threadless as shirts and sweaters. All the proceeds from the sales are being donated to workers at Mission bars and restaurants (via gofundme, online tip jars, or sending it directly to workers through venmo).”

Featured Event

Meaghan Kennedy Aquafit

I’m sure you’re aware of TONS of online gatherings (on Zoom, Zoom, Zoom-a, Zoom, no doubt) but here’s one that might not have crossed your path. My darling friend and positive deviant Meaghan Kennedy is not only a Pinata Artist but also an Aquafit instructor. Since she can’t hold her class in a swimming pool right now, she’s brought the “swimming pool” to her Vancouver apartment and now holds her class online! How fun is that?! Notice the underwater backdrop and papier-mache dumbbells she’s crafted! Catch her high-energy 30-minute classes every day at 1 p.m. PST on Facebook and Instagram, and don’t forget to leave a tip.


Know about a cool, quirky, and/or indie event? Settle down, we’re STILL in lockdown.

This is fine.

Rusty’s Electric Dreams is a (mostly) weekly inbox zine by Rusty Blazenhoff for positive deviants and the people who love them.

Described as, “One of the most inspiring, weird and off-kilter collections of curated kitschy ephemera for the big-brained.” People like it.
