Spent my last week biking rapid tests to bartenders, baristas, performers, and other friends so they could get some peace of mind (or make an informed decision) before heading to family or whatever.

Hello again, welcome to Geistlist, a secret newsletter by Jacob Ford about Things & for People, etc., etc. You can unsubscribe below.
I am hosting a screening of the unauthorized Harry Potter remix/parody/soundtrack Wizard People, Dear Reader by Brad Neely.
It will be preceded by a 5-minute lecture on illegal art, delivered by Jacob Ford. It will be followed by special bonus content curated & presented by the FORT90 FILM CLUB.† They say not to stream with your heroes, but since discovering Matt’s obscure film blog mid-pando, here we are!
It all starts at 9pm, though show up a l’il early for some fun.
If you’re in NYC and comfy at bars, come hang out and watch with me at in the open-floor arcade theater Wonderville. Should be extremely chill & small, nothing wild.
If not, join online & please keep the chat weird.
