Hello, entirety of Dames Nation!
As tonight’s issue of the newsletter is a paid-subscriber exclusive, we wanted to share two important reminders in a separate note to everyone to assure that everyone’s calendars are up to date.
First up: Don’t forget to tune in this coming Monday to the Overdue Podcast, where We Your Dames will be discussing Love Story by Erich Segal, the classic 1970 “romantic” weepy that surely caused countless divorces by advocating SHEER NONSENSE like this:
An undeservedly immortal line….
In return, Andrew and Craig (the hosts of Overdue and some of our favorite pals) will be guest editing the newsletter for us on Friday, 8/24! If you want to prepare yourself for this MOMENTOUS OCCASION, you can do so by checking out their previous guest-editing stint for us and/or listening to our prior takeover of their podcast to discuss every teen girl’s favorite shame-read, Flowers in the Attic by V.C. Andrews.
AND THEN! On Sunday, August 26th, join us in celebrating another iconic story of young love with a livetweet of Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom.
And a deservedly immortal one that also happens to function quite well as a response to the nonsense cited earlier.
It’s presently streaming on Netflix and we’re just dying to do the twist to Françoise Hardy with you. The details are as follows:
WHEN: 7:30 PM Eastern Standard Time on Sunday, August 26th, 2018
HOW: Streaming Netflix.
WHERE: On Twitter, with the hashtag #MoonriseDames
If you want to hear more from us today, or see our Aretha Franklin memorial round-up, now is an opportune moment to take our relationship to the next level with a paid subscription. Otherwise, we’ll see you on Twitter!
XOXO/Dame Margaret & Dame Sophie
May The Queen bless & keep you all the days of your lives
