Think Like an Anthropologist, Straight No Chaser, Tessandra Chavez & the Wellness Conspiracy (B+A Bulletin #149)

Good evenin’,
How goes it?
We’re back to our regularly scheduled Wednesday programme.

However, today we’re putting our unsolicited advice up front in honour of the unofficial start of ‘summer holibobs time’. Rest, refresh and recharge people. Everyone will thank you for it, promise.

But if you’re still in’t office, do come along with us on this magical B+A Bulletin 149 journey.
It is a vibe…

B+A Brilliance

Etymology : we’re here for it, and are often found thumbing the pages of the thesaurus. So let’s introduce you to an author that reveres words as much as we do. Engelke does in this book takes a common word and unpacks it through anthropology : civilizationculture, values, identity, authority, reason and nature. Buzzword-bingo worthy. 

B+A Books etc.

Issue 99 of Straight No Chaser is available for your head tops. Landing now through letterboxes throughout the globe. We just happened to land on this page letting the people know about Plantain Papers sponsored by B+A. Nice. Get your copy now – don’t sleep on this O.G publication – order your copy now.

B+A Big Up

Claire Missingham put us all the way on with this choreographer – Emmy-award winning Tessandra Chavez. Whether teaching or choreographing dance, she delivers one consistent theme: versatility. Treat yourself, press play and watch a story told through movement unfold in front of your very eyes. I may or may not have shed a tear.

B+A Babble

Long read, great read. This one is all about Gwyneth Paltrow (a person I never envisioned featuring in the Bulletin, yet here we are), the ‘New Age’ wellness industry and the never-ending pursuit of what we deem aspirational.

B+A Bye…

Until next time folks.
Top tip we stole directly from Twitter (yes some of us are still on it): If you see an X in a Chinese name it’s an ‘sh’ sound so like Xiao is pronounced “shiao.” If you see a Q it’s a ‘ch’ sound so Qing is “Ching.”

Love,
Team B+A x
