[The Weekly Swarm] 7/6 – 7/12

Ruby Hornet's The Weekly Swarm

It’s yet another rain-filled, gloomy Monday morning in Chicago. The forecast for the week isn’t looking too good, and with Pitchfork later this weekend, all I can think of is how muddy and wet we’re gonna be. Nevertheless, I’m finally excited for Pitchfork and for the clouds to open up and give us the proper summer we needed after this past winter’s dreadful cold.

Last week was a great one here at Ruby Hornet. In case you missed any of our articles, check everything out below in The Weekly Swarm! Some of my personal highlights include Danielle’s trip to a Russian bathhouse, Oswald’s very personal essay on how The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air changed his life, Hubert’s editorial on Cartel Land and how it illustrates the War on Drugs will never end, Angela’s photos and recap from Weezer’s set at the Taste of Chicago, and the triumphant return of BattleBots!
