What the hell is I Miss Your Smell?

Each week, I put together a list of the links that I’ve enjoyed and send them to you in an email newsletter. This could be book reviews, music recommendations, long form journalism, or ridiculous gifs. This newsletter is your window into that world.

All my life, I’ve been a curator providing considered suggestions to friends and family for things they should pay attention to. I’m not an algorithm tuned to make you angrier about everything or to tweak your nostalgia to make you sad. I have a perspective and I’ll share that along the way beside the things I think are important.

This is the newest form of the mixtape you used to pass among your friends. Or, that bag of dog-eared books and magazines that your sister would drop off on your porch.

Let’s rekindle that sharing again.

Other stuff

Paid subscribers will get additional access to stories (true and not so true), short essays, and other commentary that finds its way out of my brain. The main newsletter will always be free. The other stuff isn’t secret but it is special.

Stay up-to-date

You won’t have to worry about checking notifications or having Twitter or Facebook ghost my posts. Every new edition of the newsletter goes directly to your inbox.

Not quite a hivemind

This technology does allow for some community aspects so that those of you in my orbit can interact with others if you like. Keep it friendly.
