Hi hi hi!

Over the weekend I wrote a little bit about foofaraw if you are interested to learn a little bit more about [+] and where the money will go:

Hoping to get a little post about the history of foofaraw wrapped up soon too.

This week I’ve introduced a new section, letters, and also have ERRORS making a return, unfortunately…

If you have thoughts on any of the music, shows, movies, or comics we cover or feel like we missed something, let me know so I can include it in future letters sections!

I promise, Friday will be the last day I push this for a bit, but this is the last week to get $5 off an annual plan for the life of your subscription and receive foofaraw review of links every T/TH with code FIVEOFF.

Speaking of Friday, it also brings the return of our interview series, Consumption Gumption. I’m super excited to send this one out. People have been so thoughtful and generous with their time and the response to the first one was incredible.

New Shows

🦸 Invincible S2 Part II (Amazon) — 13 March

Second half of season two begins here. I still don’t have Amazon Prime, but I despise when they split a season. I’m fine with weekly drops, I actually prefer it, but get out of here with these month long breaks in the middle of a season.

🚌 The Girls on the Bus S1 (HBO) — 14 March

Sex Lives of College Girls meets Sex and the City with some Hallmark channel drizzled over the top, maybe? I’m a sucker for shows where you “get to see” how the sausage is made, so I’m down to give this show about four journalists on a political press tour a shot. I could do without the flash of Hallmark in the trailer though…

👩‍🎤 Girls5Eva S3 (Netflix) — 14 March

After being one of the first Peacock originals where it aired it’s first two seasons, s3 finds a home on Netflix. I talked about the cancellation of The Brothers Sun in foofaraw review of links and this is exactly the kind of stuff I was talking about.

this past Friday’s best album releases

Release of the Week

🐅 Flora Ocean Tiger Bloom by Meatbodies

A lot of solid albums this week, but nothing that really blew my socks off. This one has the vibe of King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard meets Jane’s Addiction. A fun catchy, riffy record with long instrumentation breaks that really hit the spot for me this morning.

Favorite Track: Billow

album cover


💽 You Never Knew by Edie Anderson

I quite enjoyed this record from Edie Anderson though. It felt reminiscent of late 90’s female-led rock music that is just like comfort food for me.

Favorite Track: Bending Over Backwards

🧩 No Jigsaw by Eyelids

Super long album, which means there were some ups and downs here and there, but I still enjoyed this, especially as I was doing a lot of driving this past weekend.

Favorite Track: Seven Seas

🕳️ Black Holes Don’t Choke by Charles Moothart

Sharp, raw, and easy rock with some folksy and jazzy edges.

Favorite Track: Roll


A fun upbeat and jazzy funk album.

Favorite Track: HEARTBEAT

this weeks best comic releases

No. 1s

🧨 Napalm Lullaby (Image) #1

Rick Remender and Bengal is enough to lock me in for the entirety of the series. I have no idea what this is about, but Remender is top dog in my mind. I’d take him over Tynion IV, Lemire, Zdarsky, and anyone else. I still think about A Righteous Thirst for Vengeance. I’m so glad we are going to be getting a new wave of Remender books with this, Sacrificers, Holy Roller, and Grommet, after the era of Black ScienceDeadly ClassLow, etc.

🦄 Helen of Wyndhorn (Dark Horse) #1

Tom King and Bilquis Evely. I didn’t love Tom King’s last go at a creator-owned book with Animal Pound from Boom… but this gives me a much better vibe.

🌈 I Heart Skull-Crusher (Boom) #1

A new Boom book from Josie Campbell and Alessio Zonno. Neither have an extensive mainstream portfolio, but the cover and plotline exude manga influences that I really dig.

18-year-old Trini will do anything to compete in her favorite sport, Screaming Pain Ball.

📓 Little Black Book (AWA) #1

A “hard-boiled neo-Western thriller” from a new-to-me team of Jeff McComsey and Chris Ferguson, who have done some work at AWA previously. AWA as been publishing some really fun stuff, which makes me interested in at least checking this one out.

🩸 Washed in the Blood (Massive) #1

I know nothing about this title, but the cover is absolutely beautiful.

🦁 The Animal Kingdom

In a world hit by a wave of mutations transforming humans into animals, François does everything he can to save his wife. As some of the creatures disappear into a nearby forest, he and their son embark on a quest that will change their lives.

🗼 The Shadowless Tower

Gu Wentong learns the whereabouts of his father, who lost contact with him more than 40 years ago. Encouraged by new friend, photographer Ouyang Wenhui, Gu Wentong decides to face his father and rebuild the long-lost father-son relationship.

To whom it may concern

James York, Tokyo:

Thanks for recommending Tyninon’s new work “W0rldtr33” that comic is cracked!

Pratik, Austin on Mr. and Mrs. Smith:

One of my favorite shows in recent times. Made me look forward to each episode and savored each one so was doing the opposite of binging. It’s also perfect for that.

That one is from awhile back and not necessarily feedback to the newsletter so I hope he doesn’t mind me sharing. It got me excited for when I finally subscribe to Amazon Prime again.

We regret the following errors

We included Mary & George as a New Show last week… It debuted on Sky Atlantic, but doesn’t hit Starz in the US until April 5th. So you’re welcome to all the Brits out there.


To wrap, I wanted to throw a quick pitch out. I’ve started thinking about how I might be able to cover books and games in this letter moving forward.

If you are someone who pays close attention to new releases, hit me up. These are sections that don’t necessarily have to show up every week, but I figured it’d be fun to be able to throw some info in every once in awhile to broaden the coverage areas—with help from others.

Stay sane,
