Hey, how’s your day going? For me It feels like it’s either 11am or 11pm at all times and every day is Wednesday (it’s Tuesday, fyi.). I’ve also started saying “Goodnight.” to my phone, my true love and companion.
I hope you’re feeling well and if you need a little help with some suggestions of what to check out while indoors, I’m here to help. We’re also here to provide you with some info and company at Indie88, indeed, radio is an essential service. You can always call in or text 416-588-0881 or get in touch on social @indie88toronto @lanagay.
Here’s some things to check out today:
Indie88’s Netflix party with Arkells!
We know how to do this social distance thing right, teaming up with some of your favourite artists to host a Netflix Party with you!
What is a Netflix Party you ask? It’s a new way to watch Netflix with your friends online. Netflix Party syncs video playback and adds group chat to your favourite Netflix shows and movies, while watching on your laptop or desktop computer.
Tonight at 8pm Arkellss will be hanging out and we’ll play their pick BASEketball
More info here.
Kids Corner/Pizza Party!
Here’s something to make with your kids that also doubles as dinner AND helps out a local business! CiCi’s Pizza and Wings in Parkdale is offering $10 DIY pizza kits for pickup.
You’ve got all you need to make a large pepperoni pizza!
Liam Gallagher’s hand washing anthems!
The other LG is really getting into hygiene these days (and looking kind of like Teen Wolf in a bucket hat? Perfection.)
You now have many options of Oasis soap up sing-a-longs with Liam Gallagher himself.
Personal favourite: Champagne SOAPernova
Turn your couch into a rollercoaster!
Canada’s Wonderful has posted 34 virtual roller coasters on their Youtube Channel, including their largest coasters and rides.
I assume this would be fun with kids?
No kids? Fun while stoned? You let me know how it goes
Make some beauty products
Now’s the time to get creative, use up the rest of that 2lb bag of tumeric you bought for a curry 4 years ago (Just me? okay.) and work on that self isolation glow.
Beloved Toronto nutritionist Meghan Telpner has hundreds of blog posts of healthy recipes and lifestyle tips for you over at meghantelpner.com and here’s one with the 20 best natural beauty care recipes. There’s a hair conditioner that is ALSO a salad dressing, huzzah!
In case you needed yet another reason to love Father John Misty, he’s shared a live album, Off-Key In Hamburg on Bandcamp, and all the proceeds from the record will go toward the MusiCares COVID-19 Relief Fund.
The new album was recorded on August 8th at the Hamburg Elbphilharmonie with his touring band and the Neue Philharmonie Frankfurt. The funds raised will go to MusiCares COVID-19 Relief Fund, which helps music industry folks affected by the coronavirus outbreak and the cancellation of music events.
Thanks again for reading. Much love to you and yours and all the folks on the front lines, the medical workers, those stocking grocery shelves and those keeping us healthy and safe.
