My closest experience would be the cult compound that I pass on weekend bike rides.

When remodeling camps across the country, it is necessary to spruce up camps at the foot of mountains to match their landscape and those camps on seaside to do its landscape
I want Dwell to do a feature on this kind of North Korean organicism.
Office romances are rarely a good idea.
I wish the college brochure “having class outside” photo cliche was more like this picture.
Episode 014 with Millie De Chirico, “The Election”
Millie and I watch the one where Zack runs for school president (thus screwing over his friend Jessie) just so he can “party” in Washington D.C.

I was honored to be asked to record an episode of April Richardson’s hilarious GO BAYSIDE! podcast recently, so if you’re a fan of podcasts, hilarious podcasts, and most importantly, Saved By The Bell, please check it out!
I think the 1989 context is really critical to understand the reason for including that Beach Boys reference. The Cocktail soundtrack was probably second to the Bush/Dukakis election for “most important thing to happen in late 1988”. “Don’t Worry Be Happy” was a #1, and the Beach Boys contribution (“Kokomo”) was burning up the adult contemporary charts. The Beach Boys were even on that episode of Full House,
Favorite sentence of the past week:
Episode 011 with Jordan Morris, “The Friendship Business”
Jordan and I watch the one where the crew have to come up with a business for economics (we guess?) class, and the project quickly turns into a Friendship Forever vs. Buddy Bands turf war.
Zack’s bracelets were clearly a manifestly superior business model to Buddy Bands: the size of the bracelet market is enormous compared to the headband market. You can wear multiple bracelets at the same time (you even have 2 arms!), but you aren’t going to wear 5 or 10 headbands at once like Peggy the tall girl had done to spend time with Screech.
In a way, the failure of Buddy Bands (whether you attribute it to Zack’s interference or willful overproduction) makes the argument for Zack - Jessie should have accepted the position of VP at Friendship Forever. It is Zack’s sociopathic tendencies that make him a ruthlessly brilliant capitalist. The main problem for Zack was how he overplayed his hand against the enormous bargaining power of labor. Jessie’s more balanced approach could have helped Friendship Forever manage the relationship with its workers.
Besides this gif, the only other piece of media that I have connected with so profoundly was Bigfoot and the Muscle Machines.
The most expensive documentary ever shown on Russian television was called Plesen (‘Mould’). It argued that mould was taking over the earth, an invisible but omnipresent enemy whose evil spores were invading our lives, causing death and disease. When the film ended large numbers of fearful people went out and bought the ‘mould-cleaning machines’ that had been advertised in the film – its manufacturers had been among the producers.
I wonder if this is how the next Sharper Image Ionic Breeze machine or Kinoki foot pads will be marketed to us.
The discussion of the film about how Russia infiltrates foreign governments with psychic weapons is also interesting.
Thank you, Brooks Brothers, for pants that match the wallpaper in my childhood bedroom. Could you do spaceships next?
I don’t even know how regular people use the internet.
