Culturally Consumed: October 2

Welcome to Culturally Consumed, a round up of everything I read, watched, listened to, loved, and geeked out about this week. Hope you all had a lovely weekend! I caught up with some college friends, read the new Ottessa Moshfegh, and started my Buffy the Vampire Slayer re-watch to kick off spooky season. Have a great week!

Let’s get this out of the way: here’s a rundown of what happened with the Try Guys. No, I do not care about these people, but I am pretty over the ‘Wife Guy’.

For all you royal watchers, it was announced that Prince William won’t be having a big Prince of Wales investiture ceremony like King Charles (still so weird to write that) did. Some point to cost, given Britain’s not-so-awesome economic outlook, which, like, fair.

I’ve had the ‘All the Young Dudes’ fic recommended to me four separate times this week. Is it time to enter my fanfic era?

The historical context of Lizzo playing the crystal flute makes the moment even more incredible.

The Guardian released experts of Alan Rickman’s upcoming book of journals and they’re wonderful to read. Witty, vibrant, generous observations. The full book is out on 10/18.

In ironic news, the Beyond Meat COO was suspended for biting off the tip of a man’s nose at a football game. He’s been suspended from the company. Shocker.

Shit’s going down at the University of Idaho. Here’s a quick explainer and a more in-depth article discussing the legal war on contraception that’s happening there.

Spooky lake month is back, y’all!

For anyone local to Boston, Beacon Hill Books & Cafe opened this weekend and it’s so beautiful! Can’t wait for their cafe to fully open too, so I can go for afternoon tea. Highly recommend a visit!
