    Click Love 07.17.2020

    I’ve been exhausted this week. I don’t know why. Thanks to sheltering in place, I never leave my house, but it seems to be taking its toll. The 100+ degree heat isn’t helping either. I often wonder what the hell did people do before a/c? I can’t imagine! Launching this blog and podcast has also taken a lot of energy, but now that everything is up and running, I feel as though I have turned a corner and may soon have a little more time. Here’s a little feature I’m calling Click Love. It’s just stuff I’ve found cruising around the interwebs that I think you might like too. I hope all of you have a great weekend!

    Looking for cool stuff to read, watch, buy, or share? Here’s what I’m into this week…
    ~Cooper

    The Old Guard – Damn! Charlize Theron can kick some ass. She is the feminist hero we’ve needed all our lives. The action in this movie had me on the edge of my seat, and it is oh so fun to see what a badass Charlize is.

    Return To Oz – Holy crap! I just watched this movie for the first time. It is probably one of the most terrifying children’s movies I’ve ever seen, and it is awesome! A young Fairuza Balk plays Dorothy. I don’t want to give too much away, but the movie begins with her aunt and uncle sticking her in a mental institution because she can’t stop talking about Oz. It gets weirder and more disturbing from there. Highly recommend if you are into creepy campy movies!

    Ozzy for President! I don’t think he’s actually running (although, who knows in these strange times), but he does have the merch. I bought a shirt and really wanted to get my hands on a poster, but they were sold old 🙁 Ah well, I can rest in the knowledge that I supported the “Prince of Darkness” in his presidential bid.

    Dear Diary, Does this Cancer Make My Ass Look Fat? – I read my friend Kim’s book in preparation for having her on the podcast. It’s an inspiring window into one woman’s fight to beat cancer. She’s so funny and heartfelt. Anyone will dig this book.

    Seviz Retro Wooden Wireless Speaker – I have had so many crappy Bluetooth speakers, but this little guy is a gem. It only costs $17.50, kicks out killer sound, and looks darn stylish to boot!

    I’m loving these Reef sandals this summer. The glitter makes them feel fancy, but I can dress them up or down. I don’t know how Reef does it, but every pair of sandals I buy from them is superb. Seriously, it feels like I’m walking on clouds when I wear my Reefs.

    This article reminded me that it helps to look for the joy every day. I’m making my “Joy List” after this!

    Here’s the holiest face mask on the internet.

    I’m on a floral kick and dreaming of this gorgeous jumpsuit.

    If you find something weird and/or cool you think I should include in next week’s Click Love, click here!

    That’s all for now. Until next week…
