two | 22nd feb 22
because two is better than one (apparently)
We interrupt your weekly episodic reading to bring you a special edition newsletter to celebrate the number two. It is the day of 2s so here are a bunch of things relating to the number two to celebrate it. Dope. Let’s get into it.
Let us start with this old gem from Jake Bugg titled ‘two fingers’.
Originally I was going to do a whole zine about ‘two’s but I didn’t have the time to finish it. The good news is there are a couple little gems that were written and I will share one right now!
And as we are celebrating the number two, I will give 3X3s a break and write a 2x2.
And a fact about twins! Cryptophasia is a genuine phenomenon where twins have their own language. There was a video that went viral a few years ago of babies seemingly having a conversation in a language they only understood. This blew my mind. Check it out below:
Bam! Incoming: Another rad song titled two:
Look, I will stop making mean jokes about Coldplay - it is on my resolutions to consider for 2023 list. Right now, they’re hilarious though and let’s just focus on that.
There are seven differences between these two pictures. Can you spot them? I call this game beach breakdown. Answers are at the bottom.
This song occupied a lot of road trips and even though I wouldn’t say I loved the song, it holds a lot of memory. Plus, due to his recent passing, I thought it would be a nice inclusion.
So there we have it - a little celebration of two. And as a final, grand exit, let me set a prompt based on two. Look at two objects right now.
Item one: _____
Item two: _____
Now write a love story between these two objects. Or a great, long-standing war between them embedded through history and this being the peace treaty.
Big change coming soon - episodic reading resumes
