It's September 22nd, 2021

Dear readers,

Happy hump day! This week Oliver Charles was featured in a relatively prominent and popular publication called Thrillist. The feature was a guide for back-to-work essentials, and what a thrill it was for us to be included. Naturally, I expected we'd get a considerable boost in traffic. I was wrong... more in my update.

Let's get into it!

  • RIP Norm Macdonald
  • The iPhone 13
  • Ted Lasso Sweeps The Emmys
  • SpaceX Inspiration4 Launch
  • Oliver Charles Update

RIP Norm Macdonald

Talking Points:

  • Norm Macdonald, a legendary comedian, known for his role as the Weekend Update anchor on Saturday Night Live, died last Tuesday at the age of 61 after a nine-year battle with cancer.
  • Norm had an incredibly unique style of comedy that's unmatched by comedians past and present. His monotoned voice, rambling setups, and simple punchlines always made for a good laugh.
  • While Norm was most well known for his role on SNL, his true passion was standup. He was a regular on the late-night talk shows famous for telling convoluted jokes that always seemed to surprise the host and audience.

Apple Announces The iPhone 13

Talking Points:

  • Apple announced the 13th version of its signature iPhone last week. I think the word anticlimactic is an understatement. Gone are the days of people lining up around the corner to be the first to get their hands on the newest piece of Apple tech.
  • Apple's strategy no longer lies around being an innovator. They are an operations company. They are good at efficiently making phones and getting people to buy them.
  • The iPhone almost seems low-tech compared to Samsung's line of flip phones. How long will Apple be able to get away with marginal feature updates?

Ted Lasso Is Unmatched

Talking Points:

  • If you haven't watched Ted Lasso, stop reading this newsletter, get yourself an Apple TV subscription, and start watching. You will thank me. I promise.
  • The Emmys were this weekend, and the entire cast of Ted Lasso was nominated for pretty much every award. For example, 4 out of the 8 support actor nominees were from the cast of Ted Lasso.
  • At the end of the night, the show won 4 Emmys, including outstanding comedy series, best actor, best supporting actor, and best supporting actress.

SpaceX's Inspiration 4

Talking Points:

  • We are undoubtedly entering the space age. This past summer, we saw Blue Origin and Virgin Galatic send the first civilians into space for a few minutes. Clearly, Elon didn't like that because he decided to massively one-up them by sending four people into space to orbit the Earth for three days.
  • The mission was lead by billionaire Jared Isaacman. He acted as mission "commander" and paid an estimated $200 million for all four seats aboard the Dragon Capsule.
  • There were no trained astronauts on the mission. The trip went flawlessly and marked a new era for space travel.

No One Wants To Go Back

Oliver Charles update

No one wants to go back to the office. The way we work has changed forever and is something we just need to embrace.

Nevertheless, media brands are shoving this return to work narrative down our throats relentlessly.

My guess, this will continue to be shoved down our throats for the next six months at least.

It's just too good of a reason to get people to buy something. It's almost like back to school, but for adults.

I mean, if you are returning to work, an Oliver Charles Sweater and a new lunch box are probably the best things you can buy. You can use the code PI20 for $20 off until midnight tonight.

I just hope outlets get more creative. I want to see more articles like, "7 Essentials For The Two Weeks After You Quit Your Job Cause Your Boss Is Forcing You Back To The Office". These articles would include various hobby products, booze, and overpriced hotels in Portavita.

Until next time, keep building 💪.

Best, Tobias
