Nothing New

I write a newsletter! You can sign up for it with the button at the bottom of the screen.

Nothing New is a cultural analysis blog with a particular focus on consumerism. In 2021, I am trying to go a year without purchasing anything new: that is, I'm restricting myself to only used goods (and, food, comestibles, other things that really can't be purchased "used" in a meaningful sense). Topics I've covered include diet culture, products I've loved, blockchain, impulse buys I've come to regret, advertising, and the state of burnout. My politics are situated on the left. I'm rather skeptical of consumer-driven global capitalism, and my newsletter in many ways is the accumulation of evidence and arguments against our capitalism as it is currently configured.
