👋🏻 Happy Saturday and welcome to the weekend edition of TimeMachiner.

A big thanks to those of you who subscribed in recent weeks. I see you!

This past week has me making some good progress on Severence, which is truly turning into a mind-bender with each passing episode. It's fantastic and I can't wait to see how this season ends. It's so weird but so great.

Today's issue has a real funny video mashup. If you enjoy 80's cartoons and also grew up with Beavis & Butt-Head, you'll get a kick out of someone's incredibly fun work.

I also have an awesome story of someone getting revenge on their denied vacation. A big win for the little guy!

Here's today's random factoid: If you could fold a piece of paper in half 42 times, it would reach the moon. Source

Finally, thank you to everyone who filled out the reader survey. I'm going through all the results and will post some cool findings for you in upcoming issues.

The Sample: They curate articles from hundreds of blogs and newsletters and send you the ones worth subscribing to. It’s totally free. When you sign up it helps others discover TimeMachiner too. Check out The Sample.

Thanks for subscribing and I'll see you on Tuesday. Let’s get to it.

The Legend of Beavis
The internet is an amazing place to mix two separate things together and create comedy. Over on YouTube, someone took a Legend of Zelda animated short and overlaid it with audio from Beavis and Butt Head. Not only does it work, but it’s quite funny. Back in the 80’s the…

Alden Ehrenreich Was Not Solo’s Problem
Vanity Fair’s Anthony Breznican has a huge writeup about the current state of Star Wars, Lucasfilm, and the upcoming Obi Wan Kenobi show on Disney+. It’s a lengthy writeup featuring interviews with many castmembers of various shows. However, this quote from Kathleen Kennedy of Lucasfilm misses the mark. The 2018…
