There are countless reasons why I love @allie_townsend (sorry, barf, I know), but near the top of the list is that she’s made A Charlie Brown Christmas a regular staple of my holiday season. And It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown a regular staple of my fall, for that matter. These films are funny, touching, and most of all beautiful. From the stunning water color backgrounds to the hilarious quips (“real estate”) to the darkness and complexity of Charlie Brown, the likes of which could never, ever be tackled with a “kids show” today. Simply put, I love these films and I love how much Allie loves them.

I love when Wikipedia page authors reveal their outlandish nerdiness by delving way too in depth into one minor element of an entry. Case in point: the author of this car crusher page dedicates more space to Need For Speed: The Run than the entire description of the actual machine itself.
Four Reasons To Support 99% Invisible Within The Next 18 Hours
1. There are only 18 hours left to support 99% Invisible, hence the time specificity.
2. I pay $10 a month for Spotify. Most pay at least $10 a month for Netflix. If you enjoy 99% Invisible, then isn’t it worth even just that same $10 for a year’s worth of weekly episodes?
3. I’ve actually met and worked with Roman and Sam since moving out to the bay area and can vouch for them personally. They are super nice guys and I’m 99.99% certain they are not con artists, with that 0.01% likelihood leftover only for the chance that they’re THE BEST con artists. Even in that case, they kind of deserve the money.
4. If you support the show it will mean I know you’re a fan of it and then we get to become even closer friends. And isn’t that the true meaning of social media: growing closer to your community by bonding over brands.
