Lana is offering some ways to reduce stress in these trying times

Though every day feels like Tuesday, it IS in fact Tuesday. I hope you’re feeling well and have switched from your night time pajamas to your daytime pjs. I fear if this goes on for months I’ll give myself an “elastic waistband 4eva” stick and poke tattoo. On that note, here’s today’s list of things to do that isn’t that!

I’m back on air 1-5pm, tune in, and don’t forget you can call or text to say hello 416-588-0881 and tell me how you’re doing.
 

Tunes

Noise rock legends Sonic Youth have recently uploaded 12 live recordings to Bandcamp. They span their career and evolution, even including the final Sonic Youth show in North America.
 

Watch

Do you remember your convocation? I wore a WWE wrestling championship belt to mine, (obviously I was ready to finish university.) Seeing as they are large gatherings, many convocations are cancelled or postponed this year. Here’s a great commencement speech from 2011 by comedian Stephen Colbert that you can watch from your couch (wearing wrestling belt or not).

While Dave from Glass Animals is quarantined, he’s hanging out in his studio and taking your requests for covers. Watch him bounce between instruments recording loops to put together his take on Nirvana’s “Heart Shaped Box.”
 

Support local!

It’s common to pick up merch at a concert or a souvenir shirt from a trip, so why not use that creative indoor energy to make your own shirt to remember pandemic times. Make shirts for your zoom chat crew? How about “I ❤️ nurses,” “Homeschooling sucks,” “Remember bars?”

Personally I would like to wear a Dr. Theresa Tam shirt.

Local business Toronto Tees is filling those online orders and also offer free shipping.
 

Bake Bread

According to my instagram, baking bread is the thing to do while self isolating. I made bread once and, though the experience was interesting, it was basically me spending 14 hours of my life to make a very slightly expensive rock.

I’ll try again if you do.

According to the New York Times, this is one of the most popular recipes they’ve ever published. Let me know how it goes, I’m all for carb loading.
 
Thanks for reading, take care of yourself over there!
