The Aperitif

My weekly Monday morning newsletter setting you up with culture, technology, and news for the next week.

The Aperitif is - as you may have guessed - on hold
Back from my break, why you're wrong about Texas, and an adjusted format.
The inevitable bomb, the iPhone, and best pop record of the year.
Old Saigon > New Saigon, why the death of OnlyFans is the most important free-speech story of the year, and a 805 BHP Chinese racing minivan.
The Weeknd, a GoodReads alternative, and why I support Apple's encryption decision.
